Cocoon To Butterfly
A Metamorphosis of Personal Growth Through Expressive Writing

Robi Jode Press is proud to announce its newest book and textbook for the Write It Out program!!

The author exposes the secrets of her life in Cocoon to Butterfly. She reveals the truth behind her fiction describing her path from sheltered childhood to entrepreneur adulthood through marriage, divorce, and romance culminating with an epiphany of a life quest. Disclosed are the intimate stories of others who have metaphorically experienced the pitfalls of the cocoon and success of the butterfly through the process of expressive writing.  Exercises and suggestions on how to write your own cocoon to butterfly story for the purposes of personal growth are included in the book.

The new book has been endorsed by Dr. James Pennebaker, the leading authority on expressive writing in the psychology research community:

"There is now compelling evidence that writing about thoughts and feelings on important events can have beneficial effects for your physical and mental health. In Ronni Miller’s new book Cocoon To Butterfly she demonstrates its power. In addition to telling her own story, Ronni offers several exercises that can be helpful for everyone. Particularly compelling are a series of stories from people who have benefited from her method. This is the kind of book that can provide personal insight to the value of writing."

The Bread Thief

My children’s book The Bread Thief won a first place award in October, 2011 from the National League of American Pen Women. The book was originally written for my grandson. One day when I was visiting I heard him dub himself the bread thief. So, of course I had to write the book and sent it to him as a gift. “You’re right,” he said “that’s me! You have to let other people read it too.” And so I have... The Bread Thief was awarded first prize in children's books by the National League of American Pen Women in October, 2011.

Domestic Shorts

Eighteen of my most popular stories performed at Readings are now bound together in an 81/2 x11 collection with cover illustration of one of my paintings. The stories speak of connections with lovers and places. Female characters struggle with loss, and longing and the ironies of life. Pathos, humor and romance swirl through the stories that provide a window of insight into the human experience. Some of the stories have been published in literary journals and newspapers.

“She had returned, or was it run off to Italy, the place of her first love, at least with a country that had remained available to her, and provided her with dreams and material to write.”
-- From “Memoir Of A Displaced Person” in Domestic Shorts
