about

My Life on Earth is a most unusual memoir. It’s magical— like the stories people tell huddled around a campfire under the stars. It’s full of rich, vivid and deeply rewarding stories that make you ponder the world we live in and all its grand synchronicity.

You’ll want to take a deep breath and slow down, to relish, to laugh with and think about this book. It promises to share the amazing wonders of the world: the jaw-dropping beauty, the stunning surprises, the sense of destiny, the crazy drama of it all. Whispering in your ear and pointing to the stars, My Life on Earth contributes mightily to your life on Earth.

Written as a series of short (one to six page) personal essays about real experiences, these are the perfect bedtime stories for adults. Here's what readers have said about the book—

 “…be prepared for a mental shifting in your perceptions of reality.”

“…you’ll find yourself saying, ‘Holy cow! What just happened?’”

“…magical, scary, and filled with joys and wonders.”

“...she does not even attempt to explain any of these events. How can she? Not one dictionary in the world has the words.”

“a witty and provocative writer”

“story-telling par-excellence”

“She has her senses open in a way that few people share and that allowed me to have that experience as well.”

“These are the kinds of stories that you think about throughout your life after reading them.”

“Paxson sees, hears and understands people, nature and life beyond the five senses and you smile, and want to read more.”

“Enrich your life, go on, take a read of this. Just click Add to Cart, …worth every penny and more.”

Monica Rix Paxson, an award-winning and best-selling author, has appeared on Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, CNN, the BBC and more. She has written a number or books from a wide selection of non-fiction genres.

Editorial Reviews

“These are the kinds of stories that you think about throughout your life after reading them. They are the kind you tell at campfires when all are huddled around, the kind you might read to your older son, daughter or grandchild. They are so rich, vivid and deeply rewarding stories that make you ponder about the world we live in and all its grand synchronicity. What's more inviting is that these stories are all real. They all really happened, and that makes it all the more worth while a read. Enrich your life, go on, take a read of this. Just click Add to Cart, it worth every penny and more.”“I read the first four essays straight through and then I stopped, took a deep breath and decided to slow down and savor each tale. I felt as though Ms. Paxson and I were sitting at my kitchen table, having a cup of coffee, and she was telling me personally some of her experiences, discoveries and insights. She writes with humor, poignancy, and integrity inviting you to spend an evening solving a murder mystery, or hanging out in a tree house, or learning and sharing something valuable with a child. Ms. Paxson sees, hears and understands people, nature and life beyond the five senses and you smile, and want to read more. I will share this book with my daughter and son and with friends. If you love trees, and you love life and you're open to new perspectives, you will love this book!”
