If You're Having a Crummy Day...
Brush Off the Crumbs, 2002
  This book was written in part with the Neuropathy Support Group of Jacksonville, Florida. The group wanted to have a fundraiser and send the money to The Neuropathy Association. Cushing has had the ailment since 1997 and started the support group with Dr. Alan Berger as the main speaker each month.
  The Support Group members decided if Mims could put together a book of her short essays, they would come up with tips regarding ways to live with Neuropathy, which they did. They raised more than $10,000 to send to "TNA". The book won an award with the Florida Writers Association.

The Sleepover Surprise, 2010
  Knowing that their grandmother was a writer, her grandchildren asked her to write a book that included them.

Cushing taught memoir writing for many years and has kept a daily diary since the age of eight.
  The book was illustrated by noted artist Alan Phillips.
