    Author And Positive Psychologist Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein Presents Page To Stage Reading Of 'Around Every Corner'

     
    On November 19th, Ocean Township Hadassah hosted a very special evening for their members at Congregation Torat El in Ocean Township with guest author and psychologist Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein. Dr. Holstein presented a page to stage reading of 'Around Every Corner'. The presentation was directed by Bob Angelini of ReVision Theatre in Asbury Park which was based on Dr. Holstein's book trilogy 'Next Year in Jerusalem' which has just been reissued on Amazon's Kindle as Around Every Corner, Romance & Mystery.... The performers were Amy Goldman as 'Natalie', Alan Goldman as 'Jack' and Susan Belfer as 'Maggie'.

    "I found it exciting," stated Dr. Holstein, "to combine my expertise as a psychologist with my writing talents. I think readers will enjoy the result - a story filled with romance, intrigue, mystery, travel and spiritual awakenings."

    In 'Next Year In Jerusalem', two women face extraordinary circumstances in one of the most spiritual, mysterious, romantic cities in the world. In this new novel, the reader is taken into the depths of confusion and mixed feelings that the protagonists, Natalie and Maggie, experience as they fall into mystery, spiritual awakenings and romance. The three parts of the 'Next Year In Jerusalem' trilogy have now been combined into a single edition and have been republished as 'Around Every Corner: Romance And Mystery . . . '.

    Dr. Holstein is a prolific writer who crosses genres with ease. Dr. Holstein's book for teens and tweens, ‘The Truth, (I’m a girl, I’m Smart and I Know Everything)’ is a first in positive psychology. It is a fiction book for girls, tweens and teens. Written by an 11 year old girl as a diary, Dr. Barbara has embedded within the story positive truths and concepts geared to help girls develop self-esteem and resiliency. Sky Pony Press will be publishing The Truth in the summer of 2014.

    Her second book in The Truth Series is 'Secrets: You Tell Me Yours and I’ll Tell You Mine…Maybe!’ Now the girl is 13. She handles many adolescent issues, including a crush, moving, a death in the family, feeling fat and problems with girlfriends. 'Secrets' provides a book kids and parents and grandparents can share and use as a sounding board for needed communication between the generations.

    Both 'The Truth' and 'Secrets' are great for grandparents, older siblings and teachers to establish lines of communication with the tweens in their lives. Both books will be re-released by Sky Pony Press.

    In addition to running a thriving practice, Dr. Holstein is a very successful author. She is available for media interview and can be reached using the information below or by email at drbarbara@enchantedself.com.
