Books I Wrote

Mapping the Dharma: A Concise Guide to the Middle Way of the Buddha

If you’re new to or have an interest in Buddhism, this little book is a valuable resource. It’s a quick reference to many of the major Buddhist concepts and lists. It also illustrates relational connections among them. I published Mapping the Dharma in 2007 under the imprint of Parami Press, LLC. The company closed in 2015. I now publish it under my own name. It is available at

I wrote and illustrated these books between 1989 and 1998. A 3rd edition of How to Sell What You Make came out in 2013. Most of the photographs for Children’s Furniture were taken by a photography student in a studio set up in my garage/shop. My son Patrick took the photographs for Birdhouses. The rest of the photographs I took. Books are available through Amazon.

  1. Well, Carolyn! What a surprise. I’m glad to see you here.

    I still like the on-line activities as a creative outlet, and it’s the best way to promote books. But every once in a while I think of chucking it all and becoming a recluse from the Internet. Theres’s a strong likelihood that will happen, though I don’t know when.

  2. Hi, Paul. Got back on line a few weeks ago after years being off. Don’t really know what makes me think of you so much tonight, but I am, and in a good way. And by the way, I donated your autographed “Mapping the Dharma” to the Scio Library some time ago, about a year after coming with Marsha to see and hear you at the Portland book store. It was well received. Much love to you, Carolyn

Your turn!
