RJ HELLER lives life forward while keeping the
past close. By letting words find him to tell their
story, he captures moments experienced by us all
and presents them in a unique and tender way.

This first book is influenced by the author’s travels
and love of nature, especially the sea. Rick and his
family live their lives in Starboard Cove, Maine.

“In a tired time, with the light outside drifting away for another day and the lights inside flickering as they come to life, I cup my hands together and prepare to give thanks ... to the life of a day given to me. A day shared with past and present, living and dying, of body and not, and a realization that in everything that is, there is something that was.”
R.J. Heller, Holding Grace
