    Anthology of An Autistic Author Aiming to Advocate for Ahimsa (Non-Violence)

    This book is a collection of the first five books I’ve written. While all the books were written at different times and for different reasons, they all follow the general theme of advocating for non-violence. While some may find my books entertaining, the main reason you might want to read my books is because they will make you think and question what you have been taught by society in general. A lot of harm is done by people just agreeing with popular opinion rather than thinking about whether or not what they are being told is true.

    I am an animal lucky enough to have fingers and a computer to type my thoughts of what I think of the world. My hope is that others will enjoy what I have written and learn things that will lead to positive change in the world. I would like to see a world of peace where no one gets hurt. Because of this, my books have a strong anti-violence theme and it’s well known that I think the world needs to go vegan and also find ways to prevent abortion, war, and other forms of murder.

    DARE TO BE WHO YOU REALLY ARE

    Many years ago, as I was describing the latest saga in my bizarre life to a dear friend, she suggested I write a book about my life. Eventually, over a period of several years, I started writing down these short stories and finally put them together into a book. It was then that I realized that many of my life experiences had a profound impact on who I was and how I thought. I started out as a quiet, shy person who was unsure of herself and her abilities. Even though I had grown up a” ending church every Sunday, trying to follow the teachings of the Bible, I knew something was missing in my life. Eventually I married a United Methodist minister and we raised two children together. The challenges we faced during our years in the ministry allowed me to grow in strength and confidence. I was continually learning new life lessons as God put me in positions where I could be of help while caring for the needs and problems of others. As God led me to take on leadership roles, I found I could depend on His guidance and continual support. I was energized as He guided me to use my creative and artistic talents. Then one day the doctor told me I had a tumor and needed major surgery, all at the same time my husband was being put on trial by the church for behavior unbecoming of a minister. When you are down and out is when you find out about your faith and God’s power to turn things around. Never before had I envisioned the challenges I was yet to face. I knew that God was not finished with me and that I had much more to accomplish. Praise God!

  • Gary R. Plaford - Fight or Flight

    Fight or Flight: The Ultimate Book for Understanding and Managing Stress

    Fight or Flight is a two part book. Part one explains how stress is an integral part of our lives. It can be motivational or debilitating. Therefore it is not avoiding stress, but rather managing stress that is critical. The book discusses the four conditions that cause stress, mindset, habitual thought patterns, and how the brain functions during stress. Part two is aimed at helping us manage stress. Stress can affect us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Hence, rather than relying on general stress reduction techniques, it is better to employ specific physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual techniques for managing stress.

Plaford, M.S.W., L.C.S.W., served as director of Social Services for the Monroe County Community School Corporation for over twenty years, taught at Indiana University for over a decade, has lectured at multiple conferences, and is the author of three previous books Bullying and the Brain, Sleep and Learning, and the suspense novel, Ultimate Exposure.
