Carlo has lived quite the successful life. As a pharmaceutical rep, he seems to be living the perfect life with his nice house, nice car, and ever-growing career. But in his soul, Carlo is disillusioned and disgusted. After formally submitting his resignation, Carlo sells all he has from his past life and takes a job as the lead caretaker for a mountain resort for the wealthy, The Meadows.

Life at The Meadows is exactly what Carlo hopes it would be—full of hard work, meeting new people, becoming one with nature, and maybe even finding love along the way.

Heady’s Neck is a novel about love—passionate, romantic love; love of self; love of friendship and family; and finding love within.

Heady’s Neck

This charming book takes the reader on an endearing journey with Carlo, a young boy growing up and finding his way in the world.  Carlo initially chose a job in pharmaceutical sales.  Despite the glamorous, money-rich lifestyle, Carlo is left feeling empty.  He decides to change his life for the better by passionately changing jobs for a life filled with good hard work that adds value and meaning to the world.  His can-do attitude is one of integrity and honor.  It was a delight to walk alongside Carlo and look through his eyes at how to treat people and himself.  He respects and loves people, animals, and nature and knows how to take good care of these things.  I felt myself looking forward to the time I spent reading this book as though I was looking forward to spending time with a dear friend.  I cherish this reading journey and hope it inspires others to follow a meaningful life path, just like Carlo.
