@Zoe Operation Happiness is actually based on something I did within my own congregation about a year before I was disfellowshipped. It was an amazing experience. Thanks for reading!

Rose’s feelings for Wyatt are more tangled than ever as the pair continue work on Operation Happiness. As his work moves into dangerous and confusing territory, Rose wonders, how can Wyatt be so concerned about the happiness of others, while ignoring hers? Read on in Chapter 23 of “Happiness: How to Find It.”

Also I have a new novel out in paperbook and ebook. It's called 'Paradise Earth: Day Zero' and is the first part of a trilogy.

@Zoe

Thanks for looking at Paradise Earth! It's a different kind of a book than Happiness, but it does deal with the same kind of issues related to our common background.

Read the Paradise book. That was very short and not so sweet
I enjoyed it until the last part, gross but I guess end of the world is gross.

@Zoe

Thank you for giving it a shot, even if it didn't meet your expectations. I wanted to bring the brutality of the JW mindset to its logical conclusion. It is a book about hopeful expectations versus grim realities. It is one thing to believe that god is going to slaughter the entire earth, another thing to live through it.

A traumatic encounter with elder Jasper Green leads Rose to make an illuminating discovery about her shrouded past. Read 'Happiness: How to Find It', chapter 24.

However, the long night holds yet even more startling surprises for the country girl. By morning, she’ll question if everything she ever knew was true.

Oh, Rose... c'MON!! What was THAT?? Well, Hell hath no fury...

I'm mad at her, Ant. Real mad. That was too big a bus, IMHO, nohmsayin'? Now how she gonna fix that?? She needs to fix that.

Dang it, Rose... uh, Tif... uh, Rose!

Sigh. Ah, well... next chapter (oy, did I utter those words?? Wait, I said "next chapter," not "new chapt..." uh, nevermind - it's all good - LOLOLOL!).

Oh, the intrigue. Waiting, dear Ant... waiting (and peace to you!)...

Rose, feeling scorned by Wyatt, turns him over elder Jasper Green. However, on the night Wyatt must meet with a congregation committee to decide his fate, Rose begins to have second thoughts. Did she do the right thing? Read an emotionally charged, chapter twenty-fix of ‘Happiness: How to Find It’!

New "Paradise Earth: Day Zero" reviews:

"Powerful and moving, we experience the emotions of one man as he watches a group of believers cross from the world as we know it into the promised Paradise Earth." - Speculator's Club

"Smart, believable, and certainly blasphemous to our door-to-door friends, Mathenia’s Paradise Earth hits hard and hits home. I read it in four hours, without putting it down." - Thea Gregory; Zombie Bedtime Stories
