How do you live an authentic life while keeping a secret? This is Carol Anderson's struggle throughout her award-winning debut memoir. Carol grew up in an era when being gay was against the law in most states, and in opposition to cultural and religious mores throughout society. Fearing rejection, she hid the truth from her loving Christian parents and from others significant in her life. The cost was a painful emotional distance that could not be bridged for years.
Thanks to the feminist movement, she found the freedom to love whomever she chooses and the courage to come out to her mother after her father's death. The news was received with both love and reservation, and, ultimately, acceptance. Carol's deep respect for her parents, and theirs for her, shines through her own confusion and struggle to be true to herself. This memoir allows people to experience the complex, invisible dynamics that arise for those forced to cover up a part of themselves to survive. It also provides life lessons for anyone hiding a core and frightening truth about themselves. Candid and poignant, You Can't Buy Love Like That celebrates the hard-won rewards of finding one's courageous heart and achieving self-acceptance….

On July 27, 1890, Vincent van Gogh came stumbling into his room in the Ravoux Inn, in Auvers-sur-Oise, France, bleeding from a wound in his abdomen. Thirty hours later, Vincent was dead. The common myth, which has prevailed for over one hundred years, is that the "mad" artist shot himself in a wheat field after suffering from years of unhappiness and "insanity". But is that what really happened? Killing Vincent is meant as a historical analysis and exposé of the most dastardly murder of Vincent van Gogh and the19th century, nefarious cover up of the world's most iconic artist’s death. This is the biggest cold case in the annals of the art world. I have attempted to continue to explore the key questions that TIME magazine asked in its October 31, 2011, cover story: “Who killed Vincent van Gogh?” and “Was van Gogh’s death really a suicide?” on the “Culture” Cover. I have attempted to answer both questions by adding in modern 21st century forensic analysis. This work is not meant as an academic treatise or dissertation, with every observation, thought, and detail requiring documentation. It is only an attempt as an expose’, to seek the truth of what really happened….
