My late brother called me a sleeping giant and told me to write a book. Turns out, I was sitting on a trilogy.

“AWAKENING GIANT: An Over-Thinker Finds a Better-Feeling Life,” is book one of my memoir trilogy. It’s currently on vacation to make way for book two: “STRIDING GIANT: A Former Over-Thinking Scientist Finds Her Footing in a Wobbly World.” If you feel [negative emotions] about your life and/or what’s happening on the planet, I hope this book will help bring you peace as a step toward creating a prosperous, or great-feeling, life.

After quitting her job as a federal analyst, thanks to a health crisis triggered by dread for career, Mary-Elizabeth Harmon tapped her retirement savings to figure out a better way to live—by the time her money ran out, she was just as confused about what to do next as when she started. With no income and her condominium on the auction block, Mary-Elizabeth needed somewhere to land to get back on her feet.

In the same conversational style as Awakening Giant, Striding Giant tells a tale just as charming and insightful about Mary-Elizabeth’s adventure to find herself, fitting work and a place to call home, the winding route it took, and her trip ups along the way before finally hitting her stride.

Join Mary-Elizabeth on the continuation of her journey…it just might help you see things differently and form a vision of the future that calls you forward, the way it did for her.


Kind words about my first book.

I highly recommend it to people who are searching for a way to find meaningful work that feeds the soul. Mimi speaks from experience and uses honesty and humor to drive her point home…. I was so inspired by her story that I ordered two more copies for friends!

I couldn’t put it down, but by 11 PM my eyes were saying ENUF! I slept well and had good thought-provoking dreams about life…instead of my usual horrible nightmares about work!

The author combines a great blend of intelligence and humor keeping me interested and asking, what happens next. From her life in Africa to returning to the states, this book was full of surprises…
