The Wilderness Spa brings people from three quite different sources together to survive catastrophe in the Alaskan wilderness. They amaze themselves in their ability to coalesce and work cohesively in the face of hunger, injury, insecurity, and possible death. With that on their minds, they explore statistics, logic, social justice, and challenges to philosophies and social norms.
After rocky starts when new members enter the group, they learn to find the best in their fellow travelers, how to help, follow, and lead when necessary. Nothing is ever easy. Without attacking each other, they dig deep to reconcile their differences.
Join the group as they make the best of what they have. Struggle along with them and reconcile your own philosophical belief systems with logic and science.

“Taylor’s dialogue is snappy and contemporary . . . A witty and often amusing marriage drama.”
What’s Not Said is a story about Kassie O’Callaghan, a middle-aged woman on a mission to divorce her emotionally abusive husband and start a new life with a younger man she met while on a solo vacation in Venice. When she learns her husband has chronic kidney disease, her plans collapse until she pokes around his pajama drawer and discovers his illness is the least of his deceits.
Then again, Kassie is no angel. The separate lives they lead collide head-on into a tangled web of sex, lies, and DNA. As she helps her husband find an organ donor, Kassie uncovers a secret, forcing her to decide whose life to save: her husband’s or her own.

With her court date set for her divorce and her plans with the younger
man in the rearview mirror, Kassie O’Callaghan shifts attention to
reviving her stalled career. But things get complicated when she
unexpectedly rendezvous with her former lover in Paris. After a chance
meeting there with a colleague and a stroll along Pont Neuf, Kassie
receives two compelling proposals. Can she accept them both?
But Kassie’s decision process screeches to a halt when her soon-to-be
ex-husband has a heart attack, forcing her to fly home to Boston. There,
she confronts his conniving and deceitful fiancée—a woman who wants not
just a ring on her finger but everything that belongs to Kassie. In the
ensuing battle to protect what’s legally and rightfully hers, Kassie
discovers that sometimes it’s what’s not true that can set you free.
