"Imagine your most perfect magical land to live in. . . and now, poof, you're in! So much joy! So much creativity! Barbara Tammes shows us how to transform our most enchanting fantasy into a reallife domain. She convinces us that anything is possible and helps us lay the foundation for our very own castle in the clouds." Tara Stiles, founder of Strala Yoga, New York, and cocreator, with Deepak Chopra, of Authentic Yoga

"Turning Dead Ends into Doorways offers up a complete and masterful healing journey. It offers, in the most holistic way I've seen it offered, practical guidance to support each of us in becoming who we are next meant to be. This book will change your life if you let it. Buy it. Read it. Live it. You won't be sorry." Alana Sheeren, grief/life coach and blogger

"Why shouldn't everyone have an imaginary happiness spa? Tammes thinks it's such a great idea that she's written a book telling us how to create one. The book begins with directions to three inner prefab castles readers can use while they are building their own custom relaxation mansions. Then she gives us blueprints for 22 "truly interior" spaces, along with the tools to decorate them as we wish. With whimsical illustrations by the author, this is a funfilled, inspirational gem." --Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight, February 2013
