About the Book

Since retiring from a life as college teacher and researcher, the author has spent most of his time writing books, essays and music. Some of his books explore questions of value (sociology) and free will (philosophy); others focus on music and the fine arts. His essays offer analyses of humanistic psychology and Eastern philosophy. Some of his musical compositions feature full orchestra; others are written for smaller ensembles including classical guitar. The Lady and the Lord represents Breer’s most recent venture into literature, the previous four being Illusions of the Heart, a book-length work consisting of two novellas exploring the world of internet romance, Tashi, the tale of a young girl’s love for an older man, The Reluctant Savior, the story of a man who discovers the art of healing and spends the rest of his days exploring that gift, and The Unwanted, the account of two men whose lives intersect… a boy from Southern Mexico who journeys north to find a better life in United States, and a Phoenix Sheriff whose life is changed forever by their meeting.
