Read full description of the books:Life in the Land of IS… the Amazing Story of Lani Deauville is a memoir of the woman who is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the World's Longest Living Quadriplegic.
When Lani Deauville was seventeen, she fell victim to a diving accident that broke her neck, injured her spinal column, and left her a quadriplegic. That happened back in the 1950’s, when it was believed that a person with such injuries was unlikely to live for days, and most certainly not for over fifty years. But Lani willed herself to live and she did.
In the years that followed, Lani worked, paid her way through college and then through Graduate School. She became a Rehabilitation Therapist, worked for the Governor of Florida and was instrumental in the legislation that mandated all state-owned public buildings have handicapped access. She ultimately got married and, in her forties, adopted an infant and raised him. She also established her own health food supplement company and built it into what is now a thriving business…and all this is merely the tip of the iceberg.

The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures."
Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can’t stop thinking about long after you put it down."
"Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write."
It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win twenty awards for her work; these include: The Royal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
