Who would have thought that a basic eye alignment problem could cause a person to be miserable or disabled? Yet that is exactly what is happening with Vertical Heterophoria (VH), a visual condition where there is a slight vertical image misalignment which causes headaches, dizziness, anxiety, neck pain and reading difficulties. Using techniques developed by Dr. Debby Feinberg and her colleagues, patients are fit with prism eyeglass lenses that realign the images, resulting (on average) in an 80% reduction of symptoms. Through this collaborative project with Dr. Debby Feinberg and Dr. Mark Rosner, Sherry was given the unique opportunity to help share the stories of those suffering from VH. This book details their difficult journey through life and the medical system, and their recovery and return to health using just a simple pair of properly prescribed prism lenses.

best-of-friends‘BEST OF FRIENDS’
What happens when a family death wreaks havoc among siblings? What would you do if the ‘peace-maker’ of the family suddenly loses control? If the opportunity arose, would you agree to simply ‘burn the will,’ sell the estate and split the proceeds? What would be your response when calling the cops and being told: “We’re not coming out, unless there are bullets flying and bodies to count?” Elizabeth Caliente is faced with such propositions in Sherry Brantley’s debut novel, ‘Best of Friends,’ which has won two national awards for “Best Fiction of the Year!” As one reviewer puts it: “Meet the ‘Fabulous Five,’ as ‘Best of Friends’ takes readers on a whirlwind excursion among five friends. Though often humorous, the ride is filled with lessons on friendship, family dynamics and strong relationships! You’ll love connecting with the members of the ‘Fabulous Five,’ as they deal individually and collectively with the drama that surrounds them!”
