The Nightbirds Song book cover, a novel by Josephine DeFalco 1a 200px.PNG

The Nightbird's Song, historical fiction, is set in the mining community of Bisbee, Arizona, and chronicles the lives of the McEvoy and Higuera families, struggling to survive in the Arizona Territory. The nightbird's hypnotic song reminds us that we are strengthened by what we endure.

“Josephine DeFalco’s writing in The Nightbird’s Song is perhaps most notable and memorable for its wonderful rhythm established between the eventful and the mundane—a perfect replication of the natural flow of life conveyed here so very well.”
  —Joel R. Dennstedt, Readers' Favorite

The Best Little Herb Book, the second in the Best Little series, teaches beginning gardeners how to grow and preserve their own culinary herbs and includes a discussion on a variety of kitchen tools that cut preparation time in half.

"The Best Little Herb Book inspired me to start a garden and grow herbs. Such wonderful family recipes using home grown herbs include Erin's Classic Tomato Salsa, Beef Burgundy and more!"
