Alan Brenham’s Books

Crime Novelist Alan Brenham.

Cornered by Alan Brenham.

He’s haunted by the memory of a kidnapping case gone wrong…

Not wanting history to repeat itself, Detective Matt Brady struggles to solve the disappearances of seven young women, but he quickly finds himself pitted against a criminal organization that knows as much about police procedure as he does–an organization that will do whatever it takes to stay one step ahead of him.

His troubles are compounded when a young veterinarian injects herself into the investigation and is targeted to become victim number eight.

When he tries to protect her, he finds himself in the crosshairs of a professional cop killer. Can Brady solve the case in time to save his new love, or will this investigation be the death of both of them?

Review by John J. Staughton: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Thrilling from Start to Finish – Don’t Miss This One!

…You can always tell when a writer knows his subject matter in a deep and meaningful way. There is a certain quality in the phrasing, an honesty in the tension, and (when the stars align) brilliance in the overall product. Brenham made it clear that not only is he vastly knowledgeable about criminality, the legal system, police procedure, and criminal organizations, but he is also a clever and creative author who knows how to convince a reader to fall for a character right before putting them in harm’s way. I was riveted by this novel, and although it is the first, I have read from Brenham, I’ll certainly be checking out the others.

…The only thing I found a bit implausible were a few loosely tied together plot details that seemed to sloppily be wrapped up, but they were hardly consequential, and didn’t keep me from ripping through these pages in less than a week. Brady makes for a killer protagonist, and seeing him facing up against open-faced evil and cruelty was emotionally exhausting. I wasn’t a huge fan of Tracy, although she had a few redeeming moments; their entire connection seemed slightly contrived, whereas his emotions regarding his past were so visceral and believable.

…Anyways, I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to be thrilled into reading for a whole night straight, and then waking up a little bit sad that you reached the end. Nicely done, Mr. Brenham – this is a real hit!

Game Piece by Alan Brenham

Temple, Texas Police Detective, Barry Marshall hunts for a hardened serial killer with the ultimate endgame, one intended to strip Marshall of everything he holds dear—his career, his wife Erin, and his reputation. Unbeknownst to Marshall, the killer had dated Erin years ago, and seeing Marshall with her pushes him over the edge. Determined to punish Marshall for stealing his beloved, the killer plays a deadly cat-and-mouse game of murder. As the body count rises, Marshall is forced to face his worst nightmare.

The author, Alan Brenham has used his lifetimes experience as a Texas law enforcement officer, a criminal prosecutor, and later, criminal defense attorney to give his readers a real insight into what life is like when your world revolves around protecting the innocent, and those you love.” Susan Keefe, Book Reviews by Susan Keefe

“A fast-paced game of cat and mouse that will have you guessing until the very end. Detective Marshall is tenacious and commendable as he plays with fire to find a serial killer that has a personal vendetta against him. If you’re a fan of suspense and mystery, this should be your next read.” Kristi Elizabeth, San Francisco Book Review

“A gripping psychological, edge-of-your-seat thriller that goes beyond murder and mayhem.” Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

Review by Amanda Mountjoy: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Reviewed voluntarily as an ARC from Book Sirens. This book is so good. The plot was great with interesting characters. It held my attention until the end. A definite must read! I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Review by Kay: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Very suspenseful and fast paced story.This is a story about a young girl who gets kidnapped while on a dare. It’s a fast-paced quick read that leaves you guessing who is behind the kidnapping. It’s a great story but the ending is a bit abrupt.

Price Of Justice by Alan Brenham

His focus is on solving the murders–until the unthinkable happens…

Recently widowed, Austin Police Detective Jason Scarsdale works to solve the murders of two pedophiles, while trying to be both mother and father to his five-year-old daughter. During his investigation, Scarsdale is forced to navigate between the crosshairs of two police commanders out to get him. Drawn to Austin Police Crime Analyst, Dani Mueller, who has also suffered tragedy, Scarsdale fights both his attraction and his suspicions that something just isn’t right…

She is hiding a secret, one that could not only cost her a job–it could end her life…

Dani hides a deadly past. After her daughter was brutally murdered, Dani exacted her revenge then changed her name and fled to Austin. But if her secret ever gets out, she knows there is no place she can hide from the murderer’s vicious family.

Pulled into a web of malice and deceit, Scarsdale and Dani discover the value of breaking the rules. Then just when they thought things couldn’t get worse…they do.

Review by Monica LaSarre, Author: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Austin crime fighting has a new hero (and I’ve discovered a new genre!)

…Before I gush about this book, I have to set the record straight: this book was The First crime novel I’ve ever read. Thanks to Mr. Brenham’s stellar book, I am a new fan of crime fiction. Not only was this book a great read, Mr. Brenham helped me discover an exciting genre that I will definitely read more of in the future. So, on a personal and heartfelt note, thanks for exposing me to something new, Mr. Brenham!

…So, let’s move on to my review of this book. Let me tell you about the elements included in this book that really worked well for the story. There were characters I could relate to, who grabbed my heart at their first introduction and didn’t let go even when the story ended. There was a story line I could relate to and characters who reacted to their circumstances in ways I could relate to (no spoilers here, but let’s just say that if my child were ever raped and killed, “vigilante” would be my new middle name). I loved that bad guys got the proverbial “what was comin’ to ’em” and that cops weren’t portrayed as perfect, because we all know they aren’t. The story was paced well: at a steady clip, with a few sharp turns and a satisfying abrupt landing at the end, at which point I finally remembered to breathe (reminded me of a thrilling sledding adventure I had recently). Mr. Brenham’s expertise in justice, law, and the criminal mind were evident. He knows his stuff and the story was completely authentic from that standpoint.

…I look forward to more from this author and I also would relish seeing this storyline serialized. I would really enjoy seeing more of Jason and Dani.

…As a life-long reader, I have to say my favorite thing about books is their ability to help us see a different side of a situation or relationship, perhaps an angle we wouldn’t normally explore on our own because of our own individual preferences and prejudices. Critique I’ve read about Price of Justice includes reader dissatisfaction with the speed at which Jason and Dani were attracted to each other, relative to how long it had been since Jason was widowed. To that I would reply: yes, it’s unlikely, but it happens. Love works at its own pace. I like that I got to think about that truth because of Mr. Brenham’s story.

…Thank you, Mr. Brenham, for not only an exciting introduction to a new genre, but for a highly entertaining read which kept me interested and on the edge of my seat for the entire wild ride. Well done, and let us hear more from your pen soon!

Rampage by Alan Brenham

A Jason Scarsdale Novel (Jason Scarsdale Mysteries).

The stakes soar, both professionally and personally, for Austin PD Detective Jason Scarsdale as he finds himself in a race against time to hunt down a vicious gang hell-bent on murder. Realizing that his new partner, the attractive divorcee Tatum Harper, could be trouble in more ways than one, he tries to run her out of Homicide.

Will their partnership destroy his romantic relationship with long-time girlfriend Dani Mueller?

Will they both survive the harrowing face-off with the increasingly unhinged gang leader?

Review by mint tea: 5.0 out of 5 Stars.

…Grade A detective novel!This book is a great crime novel. It reads much like a good spree movie. Scarsdale, who is a detective in Austin, finds himself in a very complicated murder investigation.

…Worse than that, he has a new partner, and she is an attractive woman. I really liked the story and the action-packed chase that the suspects were pursuing with each other, as well as the chase that the detectives went on to find the killers.

…I also liked the characters Scarsdale and Shannon, but I didn’t understand why he didn’t want to give his partner a chance at the beginning. He wanted to immediately change her and then ended up really liking her.

…The ending of the book was a bit funny because it seems like he cleaned up one mess just to get into another, so it will be interesting to see what is written in the next installment in his life. I would recommend reading this title if you enjoy detective novels.

G. S. Gerry’s Books

A Visionary Approach To Laughter!

Meth Murder & Amazon by G. S. Gerry.

Part of: Sometimes Life Is Stranger Than Fiction (book 1).

How much would you risk to sell your home? Would you sell your home if it cost you your sanity? How about your dignity? Or maybe you’re willing to risk your reputation? No risk it…no biscuit.

From award-winning author G. S. Gerry comes Meth Murder & Amazon.

Meet Derald Grake: on the surface he’s an average, everyday Joe Schmuckatelli. Respectable family man and reasonably sane employee working for Amazon.

Sadly, his life took a regrettably ill-fated turn under the most ordinary of circumstances…listing the family home FOR SALE.

Murphy’s Law states “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”.

How you choose to deal with it…is up to you.

Let the metamorphosis begin!

Now Introducing Ricinburg: a one-of-a-kind murdering psychopath that cooks meth in his garage, on the side.

No one is safe, not even Mr. Grake’s own family!

But, things weren’t always this way.

What happened to this father of 4 that would drive him to despicable acts of villainy? Culminating in an unbelievable accusation of murdering one of his very own children.

Quit Meth’in Around & climb aboard the methacoaster with G. S. Gerry and the entire MMA crew.

Laugh-out-loud funny with a hilarious cast of absurdity, Meth Murder & Amazon guarantees an experience unlike anything imaginable.

Reviews:

“Wholly original and darkly humorous…An Experience Unlike Anything Imaginable…Reminiscent of Robin Williamson speed …completely off the wall and guaranteed to make you laugh out loud” – BookViral Reviews

“It all goes downhill as quickly as a methamphetamine rush. It’s brutal. Nothing seems to come easily for the family and they are struck by calamity after calamity…This book is good for a laugh if that is what you are in the mood for, and good for a laugh if you’re a grumpy old cow and are not in the mood for one also.” -Jamie Michele, Readers’ Favorite

“Part satire, part dark comedy, Meth, Murder, & Amazon is a wild rollercoaster of a ride from start to finish…the unique satirical style and quirky characters quickly hook you in and keep your eyes glued to the pages until the very end. If you want to read something hilarious that happens to be a true story, check out Meth, Murder, & Amazon” – Pikasho Deka, Readers’ Favorite

“The comical way Meth, Murder and Amazon was written is so unique and thrilling yet very much relatable…There is absolutely no way one can read this book without literally laughing their heads off. Aside its entertaining value, Meth, Murder & Amazon offers vital life lessons-it’s a must read!” – Mary Jane Anderson, ILoveUniqueBooks.com

“Written in an extremely unique style. With absurd character names and place names, weird little rhymes, and unusual descriptors. I’ve never read a book quite like this before…But I liked it. How could I not like it?… If you’re willing to take a chance on something different, then you will enjoy Meth Murder and Amazon. – Tess Quinn, Reedsy: Discovery

5 Stars: Comic Relief Parallels Family Drama!

Apart from the fact that these situations are factual, this family took lemons, and made lemonade. Then they took the lemonade and brought the world some comic relief.

Author G. S. Gerry is a dedicated family man, father of four, Navy veteran, and now award-winning author. His impressive writing style and keen sense of humor will leave you wanting more.

Main character Mr. Grake is a “law-abiding citizen, pays his taxes, and keeps a low profile. Chasing after the American Dream, working to secure a lifetime of happiness. “What began as a trivial exercise of selling the family home in May unravels into a chaotic web of meth, murder, and the end of Amazon over the next 6 months. As Mr. Grake sets in to motion an outlandish, diabolical, fool-proof plan of selling the family… home.”

Let me set the stage:

  • Mystery guest #1, Caffwe. Seasoned assassin masquerading as a “real estate agent”.
  • Stage contestant #2 Dawbee. Dawbee is Caffwe’s assistant and junior assassin at Katcher Wilson.
  • Solve the equation to the complex formula; buy low, sell high.
  • First Comes Murder
  • Then Comes Meth
  • Side Spitting Travel Logs
  • The Interview
  • The Fallout
  • Worst to worsted
  • The bomb
  • Final Countdown
  • Decisions…decisions
  • Turkey wing Turkey wing, taters, and some gravy
  • The final tally

I invite you to read the “Travel logs from The Sky-Scrapin’ State to The Shred Shine State and back again. The Grake’s recount the tales of trips in Titan, birthday wishes to weeds so vicious, cop chases, and the lightly- moderate-severely severe turbulence inside the clutches of the bomb cyclone.”

Enjoy Author G. S. Gerry’s unique writing style. G. S. uses absurdity, avoiding the pitfalls of cursing, and draws each reader into a roller coaster of the unthinkable.

Personally, I can hardly wait until G. S. Gerry writes his second-best seller!

Editorial Review (Book Marketing Global Network).

About The Author: G. S. Gerry is a dedicated family man, Navy veteran, and award-winning author from St. Petersburg, FL. Married for 17 years, at the sound age of 18, and father to 4 kids (16/14/11/8). Just your average, everyday Joe Schmuckatelli with some wild stories to tell. As is the G. S. Gerry tradition, everything in his life seems to happen in the most non-traditional ways. He experienced 16 & pregnant before it became popular. Overcoming obstacle after calamity after hilarious situation in his short time on the earth. There’s an old saying plant a tree, have a child, and write a book. G. S. Gerry’s award-winning debut novel Meth Murder & Amazon checks one off the list, with an unforgettable comedic journey of a lifetime. But, he is taking recommendations on trees to plant. Check out G.

Ken Palmrose’s Books

Out Of The Blue by Ken Palmrose.

A Young Man’s Journey From The Palms Of Vietnam To The Pine Forest Of The West.

Ben hops aboard the Greyhound on a journey from his hometown of Sisu Bay on the coast of Oregon to one rural areas of the West. Drafted into the Army and a 14- month veteran of the Vietnam War, he was glad to begin his career in a western national forest, but the dangers that he will face far surpass anything he has seen.

You will meet Ben ‘s crew, city slickers, dudes, and greenhorns, from all over the USA who are thrown in with some locals whose families worked this same land for decades. Ben ‘s journey with this oddball group will test him, as this will be a different journey involving different “wars.” Ben and his new buddies will experience their own personal wars against forest fires where close calls are the norm, and murder accusations which are not, along with other life -changing events that only the end of the 60’s could bring.

Ben’s story is a journey, but also a reminder of the nightmares and daydreams of being in a war zone; some bad, some good, but memories that are forever lurking in the mind’s shadows.

Richard Hernaman Allen’s Books

The Waterguard by Richard Hernaman Allen.

Shortly after his arrival as an Officer of Customs & Excise in Harwich, Nick Storey discovers that his predecessor has been killed in a road accident, having taken away with him official documents. When Nick retrieves them, he also discovers £50,000 worth of uncut diamonds. The dead man’s wife tells him she believes her husband was murdered, but shortly afterward is believed to have committed suicide. When going back to her house to see whether there is any evidence about the diamonds there, he is escorted by WPC Rosemary Johnson, who is impressed by his ability to spot things which cast doubt on the suicide.

Following up the trail of the entries taken away by the dead man, Nick and a senior investigator start to follow a trail of inconsistencies, which lead to the arrest of a second-hand jewellery seller, who has a safe full of documents showing a trail of diamonds from Siberia through Harwich to £35 million being paid into the Narodny Bank in London by a man called Davidson. Nick and Rosemary, who have fallen in love, carry out their own unofficial sleuthing, which ends up with Rosemary being shot by two KGB hoods, whose partners subsequently try to kill Rosemary in hospital, but are thwarted by Nick. However, knowing why they shot Rosemary enables the traitor in Customs & Excise to be identified. Davidson’s attempts to escape are thwarted by Customs cutters, but it takes Nick and Rosemary’s (unofficial) persistence to follow the trail of the smuggled diamonds to its end.

This is the first of over 40 books following Nick and Rosemary through their careers and adventures (and after retirement too).

Murder at Barebone’s Parliament by Richard Hernaman Allen

1653. Oliver Cromwell has dissolved the Rump Parliament and he and his generals have appointed a new Assembly of 140 men who will make England “a godly nation”. One of the members, a Fifth Monarchist, who believed in the imminent end of the world, is found murdered near Westminster Hall.

Why was he hanged and then his body deposited there? Was it because he was a Fifth Monarchist? To cause dissension so that Charles II might return to his throne? Or because of dubious dealings he was involved in the City of London during the previous year?

In his journey to find the truth, John Fenwick meets several tricksters, pewtermakers, a huge female wrestler and a professional killer in London, Cromwell’s Generals, Fifth Monarchists and Parliamentary clerks in Westminster, wool merchants and country squires in Suffolk, before the path leads through Newgate Prison and several notable members of Livery Companies to someone riding two horses at the same time.

Carillon by Richard Hernaman Allen

Asked by his sister to locate her missing grandson, Nick Storey and his wife Rosemary go to Loughborough, where he was studying for a second degree at the university. It quickly becomes evident that he does not wish to be found and that the people (not least his former girlfriend) who may be able to help find him are at his former university (Warwick) in the city of Coventry.

However, when his girlfriend also disappears and is then found murdered, he becomes the chief suspect and the need to find him becomes more urgent. But he was plainly a very introverted young man and his few acquaintances are reticent when not being deceitful. Eventually, his passion for the triathlon enables Nick and Rosemary to track him down. But all that proves is that the police have allowed themselves to look in completely the wrong direction. But when Nick and Rosemary follow a different lead, the murderer sets a trap to shoot them.

The Road to Nowhere by Richard Hernaman Allen

1986. Nick Storey is asked to assess whether certain high-tech items offered to Mrs. Thatcher by President Reagan to placate her after the Grenada invasion are secure against being leaked to the Soviet bloc. This places him as piggy in the middle in a factional war between different parts of Whitehall (Foreign Office, MI6, Ministry of Defence, No 10 Downing Street). He is messed about, sent to non-existent meetings, threatened, accused of murder, and abducted and locked in a “black hole”. This finally provides the leverage to find out what is going on.

Murder in a time of plague by Richard Hernaman Allen

They are connected through a company loaning money to indigent courtiers at the court of King Charles II. John Fenwick discovers evidence that suggests they were probably murdered, but their connections – at Court, in the city and in the spying business – lead to him risking his death and an unexpected conclusion.

About Richard Hernaman Allen: I am a former Commissioner of HM Customs & Excise who also worked in 4 other Government Departments (two as a Director). I have always written since I was 9 or 10 and would probably have been a professional writer if I had won a competition when I was 21 (the novel I wrote was appalling!). I started “Through Fire” in 1976 and finished in 2006 after I had taken early retirement. My job, marriage to Vanessa and being father of Joanna & Katharine, took up most of my time. After I finished it, I worked on sequels “By Water”, “Out of Sight” and currently “Borne on the wind”.

By accident, passing Barton Stacey, near Andover, on my way on holiday, I discovered the pleasure of writing detective fiction. After my first two attempts, I decided that it would be sensible to focus on setting stories in Customs & Excise, which is not well served for detective fiction and would allow me to record what life was life in a department which has been merged out of existence, in the years from 1964-95. I’ve subsequently followed my main characters into retirement with more detective stories and have just started with a new detective solving murders, etc., in the mid-17th century.

I also compose music – from classical, modern & pop to jazz, experiment in acrylic paint, and run longish distances. I ran the London marathon & many half marathons, but a hip replacement means that I stick to shorter distances. I have a constant struggle with my garden.

The birth of my grandsons, Josh (2013) and Jasper (2015) have brought added joy into my life and I hope we will be able to show them some of the places we have loved in Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Latvia before we are too old.

Phyllis Hunsinger’s Books

Down and Dirty by Phyllis Hunsinger.
A “how to” Math Book Spiral-Bound.

Student mastery of math continues to decline as demonstrated by the increasing numbers of students requiring remediation prior to enrolling in college math classes. College professors admit that far too many students do not know how to do basic math computations. Math textbooks used in schools today spend an inordinate amount of time having students discover mathematical principles. The discovery approach is analogous to having the student learn to program a computer as opposed to learning how to use the computer as a tool. I believe math is a tool used to solve problems.

This is a Down and Dirty “How To” Math Book covering a review of the number systems and basic operations up to and including the fundamental tenets of algebra. There are “how to” instructions followed by examples. The glossary serves as the index, providing definitions and page links to words. There is also a listing of useful math terms and definitions not specifically covered in the text. Parents and students alike will benefit from this “how to” approach to mastery of basic math concepts. Parents, as they help their students with math, sometimes need a review of how to perform certain operations. Students studying for the ACT, SAT, or college entrance exams often need a review of fundamental processes. This book is designed to review “how to” do the math.

Review: I have reviewed the Down and Dirty basic math book written by Phyllis Hunsinger. It is past time such a succinct, no-nonsense roundup of basic mathematics principles is made available for students, parents, and teachers. Hunsinger has a useful index and table of contents; one can quickly find the concept that one needs, complete with a simple example. The book is a must for parents who are trying to home-school their children. We all get rusty on math and this book will help cut through that rust to the heart of the concepts with which the children are working. I teach developmental math at a junior college and my students really need this book! They have either forgotten or never learned the principles that Hunsinger has included; as a result, they cannot pass introductory algebra. This book should be a required reference for these students. The book could be used for a quick review of math prior to such tests as ACT and SAT. Ruth A.

About The Author: Phyllis has a passion for education, serving as a math teacher, middle school and high school principal, and retiring as school superintendent. Failing retirement, she worked as a teacher evaluator for Visiting International Faculty, as a southwest regional representative for the Colorado Department of Education, and as an educational coordinator for GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs).

Phyllis has an undergraduate degree in chemistry, with a minor in English; her Master’s degree is in math/secondary education administration. She has assisted students in mastery of mathematical concepts for almost forty years. The overwhelming evidence demonstrating the lack of student proficiency in math today is what prompted Phyllis to help students and their parents learn “how to” do the math.

Paul Sturm’s Books

My Favorite Girlfriend by Paul Sturm.

Laugh-Out-Loud Funny For Young And Old Alike!

If you enjoyed Bill Bryson’s book, ‘The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid,’ and Russell Baker’s book, ‘Growing Up,’ you will thoroughly enjoy the hilarious, coming-of-age, romantic comedy, ‘My Favorite Girlfriend,’ by Paul Sturm.  This heartwarming, humorous, and entertaining memoir details how a scrawny, funny-looking, audaciously witty kid leveraged his surprising athletic skills in basketball and his creative imagination in the classroom to become popular.  The story is really a romantic comedy identifying the author’s constant desire for a girlfriend, as early as kindergarten.

The story captures the uproarious twists and turns in the author’s romantic relationships and his athletic pursuits, beginning in Park Ridge, New Jersey, as a youth, and then at The College of William and Mary.  His comical pursuit of love, despite his less than impressive appearance, includes woeful failures with the opposite sex, but some wonderful times, too. After many exciting relationships, would he ever find the girl of his dreams?

Reviewed by Sheri Hoyte for Reader Views (06/2022). “My Favorite Girlfriend” by Paul Sturm is a delightful coming-of-age memoir about a scrawny, wisecracking kid who aspires to become his very best self in order to achieve happiness and success, both in life, and with his favorite girlfriend.

The story follows the author from kindergarten through his time at college. A blended coming-of-age, romance, and sports memoir, the story holds wide-level audience appeal, regaling readers with its endearing charm and witty prose. It’s a throw-back to simpler times, a reminder to enjoy every moment of our lives and a message that just might inspire readers to rise above any self-induced limitations and take a chance with that girl, try out for the basketball team, or anything else that might take you outside your comfort zone to realize your dreams.

A little girl named Rosie sets an ominous though adorable tone for Paul’s future relationships during playtime one day in kindergarten, when she sucker-punches the author for complimenting her on her pink-ruffled underwear. Rambunctious young man that he is, Paul returns her endearment with a punch of his own—right to little Rosie’s gut. Not a good start to his experiences with the “fairer” sex. The author will meet many Rosie’s on his quest to find his favorite girlfriend, though the violence dips dramatically from that point, thankfully.

Laced throughout the book are nostalgic musings of the author’s athletic pursuits. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy play-by-play commentary of his achievements in sports during his school years.

One thing that is apparent throughout the book is that Paul Sturm had a great time writing “My Favorite Girlfriend” and he is a wonderful storyteller. His enthusiasm and excitement in the story’s telling were captivating. The entire story is an upbeat, hilarious adventure. Even his less than fruitful endeavors are held in high esteem as irreplaceable events that shaped him into the person he is today. His wit shines through every page, and I was impressed by his vivid recollections of the past.

“My Favorite Girlfriend” by Paul Sturm is an adventurous and lively story that all ages will enjoy.

OnlineBookClub.org review of “My Favorite Girlfriend” by Paul Sturm. Paul has a penchant for unattainable women who have it all—beauty, intelligence, and, unfortunately, the ability to snuff out his dreams with one look. As early as Paul could remember, nothing motivated him like the possibility of being noticed by these types of girls. And he learned quickly that most of his attempts were futile—simply pining for their attention wasn’t getting him anywhere. Paul needed to up the ante. That’s when he discovered basketball and his natural athleticism that, if channeled effectively, could work in his favor. Perhaps if he had excelled at the game on the court, he could score some points off the court as well. Maybe it would stir up lusty stares instead of the usual eye rolls.

Would Paul receive the warm reception he desperately sought, or would he continue to strike out? This wildly entertaining book will give readers all the answers.

In My Favorite Girlfriend by Paul Sturm, the author candidly shares the trials and tribulations of his experiences with the opposite sex. The book follows a linear path from kindergarten in New York to his youth and teenage years in Park Ridge, New Jersey. Not only does Paul reflect on his awkward encounters with females, but he also writes about his time playing basketball on his school’s team.

The best part of the book was Paul’s knack for storytelling. I happily tore through the pages, endlessly entertained by his recollections. I found it endearing that he had a self-deprecating sense of humor. Many of his memories involved being riled by his teammates for his size (mainly lack of girth), being described as “funny-looking” by a female, and calling his appearance “underwhelming.” The author seemed to take all the ridicule in stride, relying on his quick wit and sense of humor to get him through. He proved that you miss out on all the fun if you take yourself too seriously.

I found Paul’s stories to be giggle-inducing and surprisingly relatable, so if you have a sense of humor, this book is for you.

Editorial Review by BooksGoSocial of My Favorite Girlfriend. Which line stood out from all the others in the book?

After all my dating, I was and remain appreciative of every relationship with women along the way, for even if I was unceremoniously dumped, ignored, scolded, or taunted for my behavior, these beautiful women I described in this book spent quality time with me, and helped me recognize how a relationship with a woman can be exhilarating beyond words on so many levels.

General Summary for Context: A riotous and heartfelt story about a boy who, despite not being good-looking or charismatic, manages to somehow worm his way into the lives and hearts of so many young girls. The end result of many of these encounters and “relationships” (for lack of a better word) leads poor Paul to persist (and persist some more) even in the face of rejection and ridicule. He has a habit of veering in on girls who are far more attractive than him, with results that are both comical and demeaning. However, he is nothing if not extremely persistent, and we are privileged to accompany him on his quest to find the perfect girlfriend for him.

Concise Review: It’s a riot of a memoir as we share in the experiences (both positive and negative) as the protagonist in the story selects any number of gorgeous and brilliant girls, often gets rejected, brushes himself off, and begins anew in his quest to find the perfect girlfriend he can spend the rest of his life with. No easy feat, since Paul is neither particularly attractive, particularly smart or particularly clever. As this changes throughout his lifetime, as he becomes both smarter and athletically gifted, he becomes somewhat more successful in the dating game. We cheer his successes and cringe at his failures, even being rejected by ugly women.  He somehow manages to take everything in his stride, and even severely hurting his ankle and therefore limiting his chances at obtaining a basketball scholarship, doesn’t deter him from his ultimate goal. Will he eventually find the perfect girlfriend or is he destined to remain alone and loveless his entire life?

General thoughts on the Novel: I loved this memoir and found it to be unlike anything I have ever read before.  Told in the first person with wry touches of realism, humor and good-naturedness, we are able to experience and intimately feel exactly what Paul is going through.  It’s a wonderful ride and I recommend it to anyone looking for a story that is truly entertaining as well as touching. It hits the ball out of the field as it provides the reader with a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Don’t miss out!

Frankie, just 14 and a scrawny wisp of a kid, certainly had the strength to carry heavy golf clubs.  However, would his talkative, amusing thoughts and deeds annoy the golfers?

To find out, read “Golfing Adventures with Frankie, the Witty Caddie,” and enjoy Frankie’s hilarious, frolicsome, high-spirited caddying adventure at the beautiful River Vale Country Club golf course.  Making money entertaining inept golfers was never so much fun!

Reviewed by Sheri Hoyte for Reader Views Kids (06/2022). 4* Lively escapades of a new caddie.

Whether you’re already a fan of the game, are interested in learning more, or simply want to bask in some hilarious outdoor adventures from the comfort of your couch, “Golfing Adventures with Frankie, the Witty Caddie” and “More Golfing Adventures with Frankie, the Witty Caddie” provide the perfect summer escape—all from the luscious grounds of the River Vale Country Club golf course.

The stories are told from the viewpoint of Frankie, a 14-year-old entrepreneur always on the lookout for ways to make money. Problem is, the small town holds scarce opportunities for the enterprising young teen. When his dream job in sanitation turns to rubbish, Frankie tries selling subscriptions to the local newspaper. Though articulate and good-natured, Frankie cannot secure a single signing and realizes sales are not in his future either. He soon resorts to doing odd jobs such as mowing lawns, raking leaves and even takes on a few gigs in babysitting. When Frankie’s good friend Ozzie regales him with tales of his new job as a caddie, Frankie knows this is the perfect hustle for him.

Readers will delight in Frankie’s chameleon-like abilities to adapt to his surroundings. This is evident in his very first moments on the course—Frankie doesn’t know a thing about golf, but that doesn’t deter him. On the contrary, he quickly picks up on all the nuances of the game and makes himself indispensable. He just as quickly realizes the golfers he is caddying for are somewhat inept, to say the least, thus providing a backdrop for lively, entertaining adventures, along with some creative advice from a witty and sarcastic teen.

Author Paul Sturm is a charming storyteller. I found myself laughing out loud many times throughout the stories, sympathizing and empathizing with the brave young caddies and the bungling golfers they attended. I golf occasionally and my husband golfs several times a week, so we are well-versed in the mishaps of the game and the mysterious allure that keeps golfers enchanted. Along with countless travails of the golfers (and the caddies) readers will also pick up helpful tips and rules of the game.

Both volumes, “Golfing Adventures with Frankie, the Witty Caddie” and “More Golfing Adventures with Frankie, the Witty Caddie” are quick and easy reads and will appeal to all age levels. Teens will find the stories highly amusing and might even spark an interest in learning more about the sport. Golf fans will surely commiserate with some of the unfortunate obstacles encountered and may even find themselves reminiscing about their own escapades with wayward caddies. Overall, fun reads for all.

More Golfing Adventures with Frankie the Witty Caddie by Paul Sturm

Frankie still has what it takes to make your golfing day….

Frankie, the witty, light-hearted caddie, and his caddying partner, Ozzie, caddied for a very unusual group of golfers.  This foursome’s golf play was surprisingly decent. 

However, caddying for them was repeatedly interrupted by humorous, uproarious, and wacky occurrences, including resolving the ugly caddie contest, meeting “The Lone Ranger,” and other surprising circumstances.

Come along on an entertaining 18 holes of golf with these offbeat, quirky caddies and their farcical foursome whose antics will keep you thoroughly entertained from tee off until the clubhouse.

Paul Sturm: Humorous Author and Speaker.

Paul actually started writing poems as a teenager, attempting to impress young ladies, though to no avail except for a smile or two.  Many years later, the author was working in a high-pressure career prompting him to escape by reading and writing for the fun of it.  The author’s amusing sense of humor provided the perfect backdrop for his hilarious books.

Another important aspect of his writing could be gleaned from an episode of The Twilight Zone titled “Walking Distance.”  In that episode, a traveling executive has car trouble on a country road. The man walks to the small town nearby where he was born and discovers himself as a boy once more.  The author, in a manner, revels in writing amusing tales of his youth growing up in a small town, allowing him to be a spirited young boy once more.

Paul has a B.S. degree from The College of William and Mary, an M.B.A. degree from the University of South Florida, and is a Certified Public Accountant, a CPA. The author spent 2 years at the accounting firm, Arthur Andersen, Inc., before accepting an offer from Computer Sciences Corporation, where he became a Vice President of Finance in 1986. The author enjoyed 37 exciting and adventurous years at Computer Sciences Corporation, including several overseas assignments in Malaysia, India, and Europe.

The author has written 3 amusing, entertaining, and fun-loving books, including My Favorite Girlfriend, Golfing Adventures with Frankie, the Witty Caddie, and More Golfing Adventures with Frankie, the Witty Caddie.

Paul is married and has 3 children and 3 grandsons, and lives just outside of Washington, D.C., in a Virginia suburb.

Lake Stories:  The 60’s by Michael Ripley

Join Michael Ripley as he takes you through the sixties as seen from the eyes of a boy coming of age during a period of strife in the country around him and terror right in the heart of his own lake-side neighborhood.

Lake Stories begins during a time when doors seldom had locks, and works its way, with humor and suspense, through the decade when the locks were installed and gradually used more and more, until the bolts were set and double-checked on the way to bed every night.

Review by Lisa Sherman: Lake Stories: The 60’sThursday, January 7, 2021 at 11:28AM

Lake Stories: The 60’s. Michael Ripley. Pen It! Publications LLC, November 1, 2020, Paperback and E-book, 98 pages.

Lake Stories: The 60’s is the first book in a series of short novels by Michael Ripley. In Lake Stories: The 60’s, Ripley describes with insight and wit what life was like for a young boy in a small lake town during a period of dramatic changes in his life as well as in the country overall.

Lake Stories: The 60’s tells the story of a young boy living in a quiet community near Crow Lake. Initially, the town appears to be a safe place, but as he grows, he becomes aware of strange and frightful happenings taking place in the town. As he navigates his journey from childhood to early adulthood, he is forced to accept the realities of the world as it changes around him. The novel touches upon key events taking place during the 1960s including the assassination of President Kennedy and the resulting fear and anger felt in its wake, as well as the Vietnam War and its impact. Through the viewpoint of a boy growing up during the era, Lake Stories: The 60’s explores events taking place close to home and puts them in context with those taking place in the country and the world at large. 

I really enjoyed reading Michael Ripley’s novel, Lake Stories: The 60’s. Throughout the novel, Ripley paints a picture of what life was like growing up in a tight-knit lake community. He does a great job describing the relationships of the people who live near Crow Lake as well as the secrets they keep. The characters within the novel come to life and I could feel the closeness of the young boy’s friend group. Each member has their own personality and role they play within the group. I think many readers will relate to these individual characters, perhaps recognizing them from their own childhoods, and will recall the specialness of those childhood bonds.

In addition, I enjoyed the undercurrent of danger that runs through the novel. From the beginning of the story, Ripley describes a mysterious character lurking near the lake community. He couples that with the inherent risks of living near a body of water. The suspense of this threat ramps up as each year another drowning takes place in Crow Lake. As such, Crow Lake itself plays a central and intriguing role in the novel. The town, the adventures of the young boy and his friends, as well as the feeling of impending danger, all revolve around the lake and its grasp. Furthermore, Ripley’s descriptions of the lake are both vivid and ominous which highlights this hidden danger. Throughout the novel, Ripley shines a light on the risks taking place close to the community and parallels them with the menacing changes taking place in the world at large. The novel ends in a satisfying way by tying up the various narratives in a touching and thought-provoking manner.  

Overall, I think Lake Stories: The 60’s is a wonderful novel. It provides a swift and enjoyable reading experience that explores elements of the decade and will leave readers feeling as if they took a road trip back in time. I am looking forward to reading future books in this series.

Colombian Betrayal by Randall Krzak

Colombian Betrayal tears the cover off the drug trade and exposes the death, and violence behind the twisted connections between governments, revolutionaries, terrorists, and drug lords.

Watch as an unholy alliance is formed when the profits of a Columbian drug lord Olivia Moreno, begin disappearing and deadly new international competitors appear on the horizon. Moreno, head of the Barranquilla Cartel, strikes a deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).

Little does she know she is signing her own death warrant! FARC has a group wanting a foothold in South America—the Islamic State, and she is in the way. On the run, Moreno is captured by a CIA team. She spins a tale to use her money and manpower to destroy ISIS in an effort to save herself. Laws and rules of engagement are meaningless to Moreno, her life and her family are her only concern.

Will the CIA leader fall for her offer? Will team leader AJ Bruce strike a deal to turn the tables on Islamic State? Can she stop them from launching an attack on the United States? Or will she be too late? Is it worth trading control of Afghanistan’s poppy fields with Moreno as a reward for her cooperation? Or is Bruce playing her in an attempt to double-cross her and kill two birds with one stone?

Review by Preston Holtry, author of The Arrius Trilogy: Columbian Betrayal is a fast-paced, action thriller artfully crafted to keep you guessing what’s going to happen next. Sometimes it’s hard to separate the good guys from the bad, and that’s what keeps you turning the pages. The action scenes are realistic, the plot is layered, and the characters are compelling. This will be the first book in the author’s series, and already I’m waiting for the next one.

Carnage In Singapore by Randall Krzak

Terrorist groups such as Abu Sayyaf and Jemaah Islamiyah have flourished in recent years with new recruits joining them and ISIS-affiliates at an alarming rate.

Blended operations by various Asian countries have forced the groups to work together to identify a new operational base. They seek an island nation to call home, one where they can plot against countries who oppose their ideals. They found a target, a small nation-state, perfect for their needs: The Republic of Singapore. Before anyone can respond, the ambassadors of the United States, Great Britain, and Australia are kidnapped from their residences in Singapore.

Right index fingers of each victim are sent as a warning. Any attempt to recover the ambassadors will result in the removal of additional body parts. Bedlam Charlie team leader, Evelyn Evinrude, leads the group to rescue the ambassadors and capture the local leaders of Abu Sayyaf and Jemaah Islamiyah.

Can Bedlam succeed or will events escalate, resulting in more deaths?

Dangerous Alliance by Randall Krzak

United Nations’ sanctions are crippling North Korea. China has turned her back on her malevolent partner. The North Korean military machine is crumbling, unable to function. Oil reserves are minimal and the government seeks new alliances.

Cargo and tourist ships are disappearing along the Somali and Kenyan coastline at an alarming rate. Speeches abound, but inaction emboldens Al-Shabab to seek their next prize: Kenya. The terror organization controls land but requires weapons.

Bedlam Bravo team leader Colonel Trevor Franklin (Ret.) leads the small international team into East Africa. Tempers flare as the team is embroiled in a political quagmire. The axis must be stopped to avert an international crisis but at what cost?

Review by Russell F. Moran, award-winning, best-selling novelist, author of The Gray Ship: “Like a gourmet chef, the author keeps a bunch of pots on the stove, cooking them up to a wonderful feast at the end, when all the sub-plots come together in a terrific ending. A true thriller.”

Review by M.D. Neu, author of The Calling and The Reunion: “Author Randall Krzak masterfully takes characters and settings most people are not familiar with and creates a rich story with sympathetic characters and lush backgrounds. These are not places most people would tread, so it’s nice to learn about them through the eyes of a man who has personal knowledge of them.  Randall’s amazing mix of intrigue and suspense will keep you turning page after page.”

“I liked Dangerous Alliance by Randall Krzak, from the first sentence of this book which reads: “In the moonless night, the target floated in the harbor’s dark water, anchored fore and aft. A faint hiss broke the silence as climbing ropes and grappling hooks sailed into the air from Plummet NS50 Silent Launchers. Within moments, a sharp tug secured each hook to a quarter deck railing on the cruise ship, two each on the port side, the starboard, and from the stern.”

Review by TeamGolfwellcom: Needless to say, I was hooked. This brilliant author not only captures you with strong dramatic action brimming with suspense but also excellently and creatively weaves this intriguing story to keep you guessing and wondering what is going to happen next. His previous book, The Kurdish Connection was amazing, and I was even more impressed with the mind of this writer after reading Dangerous Alliance. Highly Recommended!”

The Kurdish Connection by Randall Krzak

KURDISH SCAVENGERS UNCOVER A CACHE OF NERVE GAS IN IRAQ AND OFFER THEM TO KURDISH FIGHTERS IN TURKEY. THE SPECIAL OPERATIONS BEDLAM ALPHA TEAM MUST SECURE THE WEAPONS BEFORE THEY CAN BE USED.

“You must swear by Allah never to say a word of what I’m going to tell you. This is the most important secret. Ever!”

In their daily struggle for survival, Iraqi Kurdish scavengers uncover a cache of chemical weapons. They offer the weapons to fellow Kurdish rebels in Turkey and Syria to assist in their quest to free an imprisoned leader and create a unified homeland. After receiving a tip from an unlikely source, the newly formed Special Operations Bedlam team is called to arms!

Travel with Craig Cameron and his international team on their covert operation as they weave their way through war-torn regions seeking to locate and recover the weapons before they can be used to cause irreparable harm and instigate a world crisis.

The odds are stacked against them. Can they manage to keep their operation hidden and prevent further clashes before it’s too late?

Deena Lindstedt’s Books

Lady Of The Play by Deena Lindstedt.

Was Elizabeth (Ely) Trentham only just the second wife of Edward deVere, the 17th Earl of Oxford? Or, should she be properly recognized as the authentic Shakespeare?

The story of the genius of Ely is revealed, from her childhood to the ten years as a maid of honor to Queen Elizabeth I, her marriage to deVere and their collaboration, and why they needed to hire Wm Shaksper as their front. After Edward’s death in 1604, Ely continues to write plays until her death in 1612, the same year “Shakespeare” retires. Unbeknownst to anyone, Ely leaves clues behind waiting to be discovered even though it will take four-hundred years to do so.

Interwoven into the story of Ely is the modern story of Cynthia Parsons, a history teacher who is convinced Ely and Edward collaborated. Cynthia’s life includes friendships and romance, but researching the truth about Ely remains her primary focus. She receives help from a librarian friend and an attorney and together they search for evidence to prove who actually deserves the title “Shakespeare.” When Cynthia finds the clues left behind by Ely, there are those who will use any means to keep Cynthia from revealing her discoveries.

Winner of Early 2022 Firebird Book Award

Review by -Ingrid Delle Jacobson, Editor: “A thoroughly enjoyable read and lovely book! I was almost sorry to edit the last page. I was particularly impressed with the literary references and the amount of research that has gone into writing it.

Essentially two storylines in one book, the author has woven them together beautifully. The plot unfolds perfectly, the characters are easily imaginable and well described (and well researched in the historical chapters). The descriptions of clothing, environs and society of the time in the historical chapters were also beautifully crafted, evocative and clearly well-researched.

Generally speaking, this book ticks all the boxes of ‘great reads.’ I may be biased somewhat as I, too, am an avid Shakespeare fan (I have acted many Shakespearean roles as well) and for sure, other ‘Bardolators’ (apparently this is now a word for fans of Shakespeare) will love this! Indeed, readers fond of historical or semi-historical novels will enjoy it, too. Please write some more!”

Deception Cove by Deena Lindstedt

Meredith lost her footing on loose shale, sending rocks rolling down the face of the mountain. Forcing herself to fall backward, she stopped her downward flight by digging her heels into the loose gravel and dirt, but skinned the heels of her hands in the process. When she surveyed the landscape, she thought walking down the rocky incline would be easier, and she could keep the ocean in view. Looking back up the slope, she realized a previous landslide had caused the unstable earth. Cautiously, she crawled through the loose rocks until she was back on solid ground.

Standing on a rocky outcropping, she picked pieces of gravel from her skinned hands, brushed herself off, and paused for a minute to marvel at the view. There wasn’t just one mountain, but a series of evergreen covered mountains all converging on one another. The green-forested mountains changed into green-black, one mountain shadowed against another, until they turned purple, silhouetted against the skyline miles away. The majestic coastal mountain panorama surrounded her, until it abruptly ended in the infinite blue of the Pacific Ocean.

She brought herself back to her near surroundings and realized where she stood made a perfect target. Behind her were two killers and before her was the steep downward route to the highway; a highway which was nowhere in sight. No choice but to continue down and hope for the best. She still felt uncertain what route to take. Her desire to keep the ocean in view not only proved impractical, but unsafe. There was no other choice but to climb back into the gully where the stream snaked down into a dark canyon. The stream seemed to meander at the edge of several acres of logged timber and down to the canyon so deeply forested all she could see were the tops of the trees.

Message From The Author: Starting a new life after retiring from a business career, I became a full-time student at Marylhurst University in Portland, Oregon majoring in English Literature and Writing, graduating with my BA degree in 2006. During my senior year I was inspired by my Shakespeare class, with not just the plays and sonnets, but with the authorship question as well. I was certain a woman must have had a hand in writing the plays since so many of the roles had strong female characters — certainly something unusual since woman of the sixteenth century lived in a misogynistic society. This led me to Elizabeth Trentham, the second wife of Edward deVere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, ultimately spending the next several years researching and writing my novel, Lady of the Play. To be published in 2021 by Wings ePress.

I am a widow living in Tigard, Oregon. I have three sons from my first marriage to Robert Pease. I have nine grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. Following my twenty-five-year career in workers’ compensation claims administration, besides going back to college, I devoted myself to my second marriage to Donald Lindstedt, living in Cannon Beach, Oregon. I published my first novel, Deception Cove, published by Wings ePress in 2010. Following Don’s death in 2014, I moved to Tigard, Oregon to be closer to my family. I am kept busy with my writing and meetings with writers’ groups, I am a member of P.E.O. and play bridge once a week.

Besides my novel, Deception Cove, my fiction honors include third place winner for a poem: Two Ladies of Chedigny for Willamette Writers, Portland. Finalist for short story: Simply to Fly for NW Writers Association contest in Seattle. I presented a paper at the Virginia Woolf Conference, Lewis and Clark University. A guest speaker at the 2011 Shakespeare Authorship Symposium delivering my paper, Shakespeare, Perhaps a Woman.

My non-fiction writing honors include articles published in the Workers Compensation Journal and Risk Management Magazine, and Risk Management Magazine, and contributed a chapter in the book: Work Injury: The Full Spectrum of Management. I also prepared a historical cookbook, “Cooking on the Coast” for Cannon Beach Historical Society.

The Rogue Bear & Other Short Stories by Anastasia Cassella-Young

Anastasia Cassella-Young’s ‘The Rogue Bear’ and ‘Small Blurb’ are based on true stories.

A “rogue” bear is when it attacks or attempts to get into a home.

‘Small Blurb’ is based on a true story about a “small blurb” a dead woman received in a NY newspaper after dying on the IRT subway line.

‘The Writer’ is a fictional accounting of the runaway imagination of a writer following the prediction of the immediate future in a painting above his desk. Murder and mayhem ensue.

‘Just Like Grandma’ is about a grandmother protecting her grandchildren from an awful alcoholic father who is abusive to the point that “Grandma” protects the children with a gun and her story of the aftermath of that decision.

‘You’re Supposed to be Scared’ is a great Halloween story about a haunted house and the tour through that haunted house and what happens there.

This is a very good read from the wild imagination of a bi-polar surviving writer!

Kristine Fontaine’s Books

Only the Lucky Grow Old by Kristine Fontaine.

Aging is a privilege denied to many… When you look at an older adult, what do you see? Have you ever stopped to think they were once young? What tales could they tell? What were their triumphs and tragedies? To be graced with the good fortune of growing old is something I think many of us take for granted.

As a Physical Therapist for over thirty-two years, I have worked with countless older adults who I’ve admired and found fascinating. This book will take you through the lives of twenty-two amazing individuals over the age of ninety. Their “ordinary” stories are extraordinary. As a therapist, I also wish to share what I have learned about arthritis and aging. There are proactive measures you can take now to help as you transition into and through the “Golden Years”.

Woven throughout are some of my own stories . . . anecdotes I hope you find amusing, as well as reflections on a variety of topics, life and spirituality included. May you find what is written on these pages educational, enjoyable, and inspirational.

Message From The Author: I have been a Physical Therapist for 32 years and love what I do. I have worked as an outpatient therapist throughout my career, and have always enjoyed working with the elderly population. I love the stories they share about their lives, as well as their outlooks and wisdom. I had a fleeting thought one day about how neat it would be to have their stories recorded, but initially ignored it.

I have always enjoyed creative writing, but never had any desire to be an author…until about 2 years ago. The thought about creating a book out of the stories shared became something I found myself thinking more and more about. So much so that I finally made the decision to undertake the task of writing this book. One day I was sitting reading the Sunday paper and the man who would become my first interview was featured in an article. I found the article about his life fascinating, and said to myself should I begin the project, he would definitely be someone I would like to speak with.

The book is written with meaning, heart and sincerity. I have learned much in my years as a therapist and would like to share some of that with all of you. The book is meant to make you think and reflect, but also to provide, hopefully, a sense of peace and appreciation. I also hope you find many of my stories and interjections funny.

I am not an avid reader myself, but love the art of baking, and I love to garden. I do consider myself an avid conversationalist-interpret that how you would like 🙂

I believe in living a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise being essential, as well as the grounding that spirituality provides.

I welcome any questions and hope you find my book interesting enough to read. If so, I welcome any thoughts you may have.

Gayle Suzanne’s Books

It’s In The Little Things by Gayle Suzanne.

“Do you have a voice deep down inside that you are not good enough? Do you believe a happy life is meant for others but not for you? Are you ready to shift energy and improve your life? Obstacles can bring us down but after we dust off and pick ourselves up, those obstacles can be valuable lessons in disguise. Through commitment and action, you can turn your life around for the better! With nearly 50 humorous or emotional stories from her personal experiences, Gayle Suzanne shares ideas and lessons that have had the most transforming impact on her life. Most stories have messages of how to appreciate seemingly insignificant events and how to take minor steps to improve your own circumstances.

Sometimes in our lives people may have said negative things to us that might have left a damaging scar on our hearts. We believe those things to be our truth. Unless we dig deep and remove those negative thoughts, we may carry them with us our whole lives, even though they are not true. It is up to us to discover our real truth – that we are all special and unique individuals and we are all worthy of love. Here is a partial list of topics discussed in this inspirational self-help book for those who have been abused, rejected, divorced or bullied. · Rejection and bullying – how to look at rejection in a different way · Discover your gifts and talents · Do yourself a favor and let it go · Eliminate limiting beliefs · Have some fun · Sure fire way to make a good decision · Learn to receive the good stuff · Serve others · Just be · Ideas to show yourself love.

About D.C. Rush: We actually began writing our first children’s book about 2 years ago. Cathy and I would often sit outside watching the birds. We fed the birds daily. They were very clever and fun to watch, especially when the little birds kicked seed to the ground for the larger birds. It seemed the birds had some group structure and displayed very effective teamwork. We thought it would be interesting to write a book about birds flying south for the winter.

The finished book sat on our computer hard drive for over a year before my brother and sister-in-law convinced us to self-publishing. I never thought we would actually publish our work. However, the birth of our grandson Rylie gave us some added incentive to get the book out there, and we decided to dedicate the book to him. We thought it would be nice to leave something behind for our children and their children. So, we had the book proofed, edited, illustrated then self-published it ourselves at Amazon.com.

Cathy and Don currently live in Arizona with their cats, Nomi and Hershey. Cathy is a homemaker and Don is a retired Manufacturing Manager and former Elementary School Governing Board Member.

Michael Palladini’s Books

Spellbound and Sensationless: A Drug War Vision by Michael Palladini.

Spellbound and Sensationless: A Drug War Vision. Best friends struggling with their drug-fueled past, embark on a journey of self-discovery which changes their lives forever.

What is a drug war vision? A personal vision. A battle with enemies known and unknown. Where did it start? Where is it going? Life continues to follow childhood friends Mark and Jason as they try to move beyond the memories and break the pull of the past. The drugs remain within reach, the law has made its statement, relationships have come and gone. The world waits for them to find their place. Spellbound and Sensationless. Love and Friendship. Art and Music. Drugs and War. A personal war.

A drug war is defined as an organized campaign against the production, trafficking, and use of illegal drugs. A vision can be defined as an idea or mental image. The war on drugs has created many visions for many years. Spellbound and Sensationless is one of those visions. A personal vision of a drug war that is fought every day in the heart and the mind, in homes, schools, offices, and on the streets. A vision of a world at war with itself, singular worlds in the midst of an unknown universe that is unable to see.

Share the vision.

Therapy for a Broken Heart: Emotional Relationship Poetry by Christian D. Maddison.

After a long, hard breakup from an “overdue” relationship, I found myself lost. I “gave up” on dating, relationships, love and ever being with anyone ever again. Then, out of nowhere; I met someone, and it was then that I sat at my computer and poured out ALL my feelings into this book.

Review by sureshot: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Great when it’s good. I’m giving this book of poetry 5 stars, because when it’s good, it’s really good. The author has great command over words and expresses universal truths in unique ways. My only complaint is the religious poems. They do not go well with the theme of the book. Otherwise, I recommend this book.

About The Author: Christian Devon Maddison lived in Colorado Springs and moved to Georgia in 1989. Christian is looking forward to publishing several more poetry books and a romantic, yet erotic short story book.

Therapy synopsis: After a long, hard breakup from an “overdue” relationship, I found myself lost. I “gave up” on dating, relationships, love and ever being with anyone ever again. Then, out of nowhere; I met someone, and it was then that I sat at my computer and poured out ALL my feelings into this book.

This book is for all people of all ages who are going through or have ever gone through heartbreak and have FINALLY decided to move on. Instead of that natural, guttural, ghetto instinct of payback, pettiness, slashing tires, or throwing a brick; just read this instead. Believe me, you’ll feel better.

Thomas Reilly’s Books

Chasing Time by Thomas Reilly.

A time-bending adventure like no other.

A Literary Titan Gold Award winner.

“A brilliant debut novel from start to finish, you won’t be able to put it down.” — N.N light’s review

“It had me sitting on the edge of my seat until the conclusion.” — Reader’s Favorite

“An earnest and moving novel, Chasing Time is an emotive mixture of contemporary fiction and fantasy, for a story that reads like a potential film.” — Self-Publishing Review

Chasing Time takes the reader on a thrilling adventure as history professor Tony Lucas seeks an ancient time-bending key that may hold the secrets to a miracle cure for his beloved wife, trapped in the throes of the debilitating and deadly ALS. Racing against time as the disease extracts its unforgiving toll, Tony embarks on an amazing quest involving a series of unexpected plot twists, cryptic clues, and memorable characters.

Driven by a strong male lead, this heartwarming book combines realistic medical elements with a hint of fantasy to create a gripping, suspenseful narrative. Reilly spins a compelling tale of a devoted husband’s resilience and perseverance as he pursues a life-saving mission that extends from ancient Rome to modern-day America to the lush olive groves of Andalusia. The story takes the classic medical drama, historical fiction, and fantasy genres and turns them all completely on their heads. With its precise and witty style, Chasing Time is an engaging, must-read story like nothing like you have read before.

Review by Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★½: “An earnest and moving novel about one man’s mission to save his spouse before time runs out, Chasing Time by Thomas Reilly is an emotive mixture of contemporary fiction and fantasy, for a story that reads like a potential film. Anthony “Tony” Lucas has always been talented with predictions, but he could never anticipate how a lost key from his youth that forecasts the future would impact his wife’s eventual ALS diagnosis. Thomas Reilly’s dialogue and storylines are sometimes implausible, but it’s easy to suspend disbelief in this touching story, and the novel’s emotional resonance is engrossing and impressive.”

Review by THEPRARIEBOOKREVIEW: An engrossing adventure that keeps the surprises coming…

Reilly combines SF and fantasy to create an immersive time travel tale in his latest. Devastated by his wife’s terminal illness, retired teacher Tony Lucas sets on to locate a long-lost magical key from his youth, that has the power to predict the future, hoping to use it to unravel the mysteries of the future. But the path to find the key is filled with dangers. Reilly does excellent with the time-travel premise, but where his narrative really shines is in his realistically sketched characters and tight plotting. The subplots, including the ancient artifact with mystical powers and the protagonist’s psychic abilities are woven nicely into the engrossing narrative. Between careful attention to Lucius Fabius Antonius’ story, Tony’s struggles to unravel the mystery of the key, and shifts through time, the narrative charges along until Reilly ties it all together with precise skill. The heartening ending is thoroughly satisfying. Lovers of finely crafted time travel tales will be gratified.

Dr. Brent Neale Melloy’s Books

UNHERALDED by Dr. Brent Neale Melloy.

How JACQUIZZ RODGERS led the 2007 LAMAR CONSOLIDATED MUSTANGS to an improbable TEXAS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP.

In 2006 the Lamar Consolidated Mustang football team was considered the favorite to win the Division I Class 4 A state title in Texas. After being upset in their semi-final matchup, graduation took a heavy toll on the team. 2007 was considered by most pundits to be a rebuilding year. But once Head Coach Lydell Wilson started to put the pieces back together, he realized the ’07 squad was his one legitimate shot to catch lightening in a bottle.

Jacquizz Rodgers had heard throughout his life that he was too short to be a big-time football player. At 5’7”, Rodgers had been proving people wrong year after year. Now, in 2007, he was once again hearing the naysayers doubting himself and his team as they sought to win the school’s first ever state championship. First, they would need to overcome several early season injuries to even make the playoffs. Then, they would have to get past future Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III and his #1 state ranked Copperas Cove Bulldawgs.

Read along as the Mighty Mustangs of 2007 overcame one obstacle after another as they fought to fulfill their dream. See how an eclectic group of teammates, including a group of Nigerians who had moved into the area, bonded together early in childhood to form a solid nucleus going into their high school years. Though few of them were considered to be “blue chip” athletes, the relatively unknown and unheralded boys from Richmond, Texas had something to prove.

The story opens on a hot June afternoon in Milwaukee, 1939. A young seventeen-year-old man (named Karl), the son of German immigrants, stands in line at the United States Army Air Corps recruiting station. Thirty-nine hundred miles away, in London England, June 1939; a young nineteen-year-old girl (named Katarina) arrives from Germany to attend the University of London and begin her studies.

For Karl (U.S. Army Air Force pilot) his bombing mission over occupied Germany begins on January 27 1943. He is piloting a US Army Air Force lead scout aircraft ahead of an initial wave of B17 bombers.  His plane suffers a catastrophic mechanical failure.  Karl ejects, then falls helplessly to the ground following the failure of his parachute.  The story begins to unfold.  The plot takes many unexpected twists and turns with unpredictable suspense and turmoil. This is an amazing journey behind enemy lines during WWll.  With the help of the underground, Karl is able to penetrate the German High Command.

Let me bring you into the story here: When things go terribly wrong, Karl finds himself rescued by a Katarina. Katarina Keitel is a young German farm girl; the daughter of a German officer Gerhardt Keitel, who stands against Hitler and the Third Reich. She discovers the near death, battered, and broken body of an American soldier.  She hides him and nurtures him back to health.  Karl heals, their kind-heartedness and friendship become more, and ultimately, they fall deeply and passionately in love. 

Danger is all around, to make matters worse, Katarina has a brother named Wilhelm; a Nazi SS officer with an extreme alliance to the Nazi Party, the Third Reich, to Hitler, and to Hitler’s Army. As Karl heals, the war continues into the Springtime, and his relationship with Katarina starts to blossom.

“The days turn into weeks, weeks into months, and the war continues. Springtime, April 19. Katarina brings Karl food every day, spending all day with him. His wounds are healed, and he is doing much better. His leg still gives him pain. He is up and walking with a cane; yet has a limp. In the mornings they venture out of the barn together to enjoy the fresh air and listen to the birds chirping. The feel of morning dew is fresh, the fog is lifting from the valley. One morning Karl is walking alone and notices a patrol vehicle in the next field over. He knows they are looking for him. Katarina is due to come by anytime. Karl is afraid they will see her but cannot warn her. Katarina has breakfast with her mother, it is Anna’s birthday…”

Karl feels he is endangering Katarina and her family and wants to return to England. Katarina begs him to stay with her. Katarina’s father has a plan for Karl to remain in Germany. Through Gerhardt and the Underground Movement, Karl goes undercover as a German Officer and penetrates the German High Command and becomes a trusted officer. As their love grows deeper, Karl becomes entangled in a bitter sibling rivalry with Katarina’s toxic brother.  Karl and Katarina’s love and their journey together unfold with joyful surprises coupled with bone chilling and harrowing twists.

Karl is a hero. After the war he continues to use his knowledge and experiences to serve his country well, by teaching recruits how to infiltrate the enemy government. Your mind will get lost in the action and you will not be able to put it down. Both men and women will thoroughly enjoy this book. There is action drama, with sweet romance.

The Author reveals suspense and espionage through eerie events changing the paths of young Karl and Katarina’s lives forever.  The surprising turn of events will keep you infectiously engaged to see where and how the story ends.  Seeking to create a great balance of genre, he braided multiple plots into one compelling story.  This is a page turner as the suspense continues.  The reader finds themselves feeling and living the characters, unable to put this novel down.

This novel often takes the reader back to normalcy, before capturing them with more unexpected events.  The ending will leave the reader with questions, astonishment, and disbelief.  They will be literally taken back.  A novel unlike any other, one soon not to forget.

Join Karl and Katarina in their journey together…prepare yourself for the unexpected. Now it is up to you, to see how things turn out for Karl and Katarina.

Author Sabato DiVincenti’s inspiration comes from various vintage television wartime series, World War II movies, and espionage films. ‘Spinnaker’ is Sabato debuts novel, intertwining personal and memorable experiences.

Now, she’s challenging you: Are you willing to embark on the YES! Journey to find a version of “you” you never thought possible?

Review by Dr. Terrance Lee Baker, MD, MS, FAAEP, FAAFP: Highly Recommend!

I thoroughly enjoyed Yes! Commit. Do. Live This is a book of life transformation, and it should be in the hands of everyone who is looking for the pathway to better whole-body wellness. Lisa takes the reader on a journey that fosters a strong, moral character – a positive mindset and a healthy body from the inside – out. She combines her health coaching training with her knowledge of brain science through her work at Rutgers to give a solid roadmap to transformational change. This book should be required reading for every person who believes life isn’t fair, and life needs to change. It teaches you that all change in your life begins with you improving yourself and shows you the necessary process to become a better, stronger you.

All things then become possible. Powerful.

Review by Aisha-Sky Gates, Relationship Coach and founder of Elevate Womxn Collaborative: It was a pleasure to read Lisa Charles’ Yes! Commit. Do. Live.

I am a relationship coach and as such many of the messages here are familiar to me and my clients. I appreciated the theme and life practice, showing self-transformation as attainable. The lessons are cleanly presented and easy to remember.

The book promotes a build-from-the-inside/out mindset that is far more likely to be transformative than “yo-yo” diets or wasting money on the latest health gadgets and pills. As a whole, this is a workout system that coaches the reader in personal responsibility and taking actions toward their goals. Her methodology is based on science plus her long years of successfully working with clients. Last, let me say that you will enjoy the many anecdotes from Lisa’s life in which she shares what she has learned along the way.

5 Stars: This is a book for all people, in all walks of life, from teens to the oldest among us.

Author Lisa Charles shows us how to “embrace the Brain-Body Connection” in order to reach our full potential.

Let me quote Lisa:

” By embracing the power of YES! I said “Yes” to a new YES! Mindset, a new YES! Body, and a new YES! Lifestyle. I threw out all the trappings of my prior Yo-Yo existence and committed myself to a new process that revealed new possibilities and a vibrant vision of the future. I got to know my body and its capabilities and to understand my brain and its role in securing sustained changes. As a result, I am now free from any physical and emotional limitations that society places on aging. I am free to live my passions. There is nothing I can’t do.”

” In my role as the Fitness/Wellness Research Coordinator at the Rutgers Aging & Brain Health Alliance (ABHA), I focused on all the elements that lead to ultimate health, which stemmed from the brain to the body, and I will show how it will work for you. There is a connection between your brain and your body that can help make the seemingly impossible possible. In most people, however, that connection remains untapped. You can harness the information gathered by both your brain and your body about every activity, event, opportunity, and life challenge and use it to move you past obstacles in your decision-making.”

Lisa shares her own life experience to teach others. This is down to earth, life changing advice, with simple challenges (suggestions) to slowly work in life routines, for real transformation. This book should be on the bedside table (to be read over and over) for people who want to make a change in their body and mind. This book is not a one-time read. This is reference guide that should be available in libraries, clinics, hospitals and rehabilitation centers.

Lisa’s system is based on science. She combines her health coaching training with her knowledge of brain science through her work at Rutgers Lisa Charles is a federal prosecutor turned singer/actress, wellness expert, certified health coach/consultant, and an acclaimed speaker. She is the fitness/wellness research coordinator for the Rutgers University Aging & Brain Health Alliance, CEO of Embrace Your Fitness, LLC, and the author of YES! COMMIT. DO. LIVE.

Maria davenza Tillmanns’ Books

New Release In ‘Why We Are In Need Of Tails’ Series!

Why We Are in Need of Tales? Part Three by Maria davenza Tillmanns.

In ‘Why We Are in Need of Tails’; we learn how we all used to have tails that helped us connect to each other and the world around us. When we lost our tails, we also lost our most nuanced way of communicating, so the story goes. Best friends Huk and Tuk explore ways we can compensate for this loss. They discover that by telling stories – or tales, if you like – and by discussing the intriguing questions they raise, we’re able to create a deeper understanding of ourselves, each other and the world we live in. Although Huk and Tuk’s tales seem simple at first, the questions they raise are nuanced and complex, making them rewarding for adults and children to ponder together.

Now, in Part III, the latest in the ‘Why We Are in Need of Tales’ series, Huk and Tuk gain an understanding of the different choices we make in different situations – and how important choices can be. And they learn that in order to make careful choices, we have to keep our eyes wide open.

Doing philosophy with children inspired Maria daVenza Tillmanns to write these whimsical, playful stories about profound, weighty ideas to help recreate the bonds of meaningful communication with one another – the young and not so young alike.

Why We Are In Need Of Tails? by Maria davenza Tillmanns.

Our most nuanced skills for communication were lost when we lost our tails, so the story goes.

Huk and Tuk explore ways we can compensate for this loss, by telling stories ­– tales — through polyphonic listening and by entering into dialogue to create a new, deeper understanding of ourselves and the world we live in.

Doing philosophy with children inspired Maria deVenza Tillmanns to recreate the bonds of meaningful communication in the writing of this whimsical, playful story. Philosophy should make us — children and adults — re-think what we think we know and push the boundaries of accepted practices. Hopefully, it will also make us laugh about taking things too seriously.

Why We Are In Need Of Tales? Part Two by Maria davenza Tillmanns.

In ‘Why We Are In Need Of Tails’, we learn that our most nuanced skills for communication were lost when we lost our tails – or so the story goes. Huk and Tuk explore ways to compensate for this loss by developing polyphonic listening or by entering into dialogue with each other rather than carrying on a monologue. And they learn that telling tales helps connect us when actual tails no longer can.

In Part I, Huk and Tuk discuss six different picture books by Arnold Lobel and Leo Lionni and explore the intriguing questions the tales inspire, gaining a new understanding of the deep connection we have to each other and the world we live in.

In Part II, Huk and Tuk discuss another important aspect of telling tales: making dreams come alive. Here they discuss six more tales by Arnold Lobel and Leo Lionni and learn that we cannot live without the dreams that our imaginations create. Dreams give us hope and imagination and – with the help of courage and determination – allows us to create extraordinary things.

Doing philosophy with children inspired Maria daVenza Tillmanns to write these whimsical, playful stories about profound, weighty ideas to help recreate the bonds of meaningful communication with one another – the young and not so young alike.

Don Edward Cook’s Books

Ithyanna, Last Daughter of Atlantis by Don Edward Cook.

Book I: How the World Ended Millennia Ago (The Last of the Atlanteans).

IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, IN AN ANCIENT WORLD OF ANXIETY …

Noah warned the world about the coming flood yet, outside of his family, no one listened. Ancient prophecies, signs, and omens pointed to coming worldwide disaster-yet no one listened. Signs in the environment and society provided humanity with another set of warnings-yet no one listened!

No one listened … except for an Atlantean telepathic wunderkind-scientist, Ithyanna. Ithy, as her friends called her, saw the impending destruction and, through her extensive doctoral research, urged the building of at least one spaceark to carry a nucleus of humans to safety. But only a handful of people signed on, one of them a wealthy financier-cultural demagogue, and thus work began on Project Life-Escape and its starship of life. Battling ever-growing economic woes, scoffing masses, the duplicity of her benefactor, a growing threat of all-out war with totalitarian Lemuria, and resistance from the Divine, Ithyanna and her project workers toil bravely to save humanity. But will Ithyanna’s valiant efforts to get humans to another world succeed … or fail?

Review by VAL-5.0 out of 5 Stars. A most unusual and exciting novel!

A complex apocalyptic novel with a large cast of characters, this imaginative and interesting saga is an unusual and fascinating meld of biblical, modern, and future times, with plenty of action, drama and suspense, and a satisfying, unexpected ending…

Ithyanna and her sister Bee grow up in a scientifically and technologically advanced society in the days of the Great Flood, when God commanded Noah to build the Ark. However, Ithyanna doesn’t believe in the One True God, and puts her faith primarily in science. Like Noah though, Ithyanna believes the world will soon end, and she has developed a plan to save as many humans as possible by procuring a spaceship and finding a new home for them. A search for suitable planets is undertaken, while mankind becomes increasingly corrupt and violent. When potentially suitable planets are discovered, a spaceship is procured, but as society degrades further and loyalties dissolve, Ithyanna finds herself betrayed and alone. At last, after losing her support system, friends and family, she must choose between her scientific beliefs and God in an explosive and exciting finale.

Review by Kirkus Reviews: “This first installment of a religion-themed SF/fantasy saga focuses on the high-tech but intrigue-wracked island nation of Atlantis and how a brilliant woman trusts science to rescue humanity from doom.

A dedication to God up front indicates Canadian author Cook’s antediluvian epic is sincerely meant as evangelical literature. But initially, readers encounter playfulness and semi satire that fall almost within hailing distance of dogma-bashing material like James Morrow’s Towing Jehovah (1994). Supposedly drawing from fringe history experts and Creation science, Cook depicts life in fabled Atlantis circa the biblical deluge. Humanity is high-tech and space-going (though penned in by an alien embargo) but, thanks to Adam and Eve, fatally decadent, divided, and driven to self-destruction. Especially significant is a looming military conflict with Lemuria, a fierce “Women’s Liberation” rogue state stopping at nothing for total control. Beautiful, psychic Atlantean science graduate Ithyanna foresees an upcoming apocalypse.

Though tentatively a follower of Olympus-style deities, she puts her faith in rationalism and technology, plotting a starship escape of the planet’s best and brightest before it’s too late. Meanwhile, her adopted sister, an alcoholic “coarseneck” (redneck) with an affinity for “cargonaut” (country-and-western) music, repents and joins ex-technician Noah, a shunned disciple of the god Elohim. Noah, of course, is building a giant gopher-wood boat for his family and a menagerie of animals despite much public scorn and ridicule. God/Elohim–who appears as a talking lion like Aslan of C.S. Lewis’ Narnia tales–worries that Ithyanna’s scheme may spoil the whole flood thing. In this engrossing tale, treachery, arrogance, violence, nonbelief, and selfishness beset the eponymous hero’s plans and illuminate God’s true path. Enroute are enjoyable shoutouts to the Adam West Batman TV series, references to the movie flops Star! and Doctor Doolittle, and disguised versions of Kurt Waldheim, white nationalism, and Islam. If they aren’t too tempted to dig deeper for additional takedowns (was that supposed to be Oprah Winfrey? Madonna? Former President George W. Bush? Justin Trudeau?), readers will get a basically traditional exhortation urging redemption–complete with Gospel excerpts–attired in riots of rococo filigree and vivid anachronisms. This work certainly isn’t part of the Tim LaHaye/Jerry B. Jenkins school of Christian fantasy. An engaging, offbeat, and Bible-inspired apocalyptic tale.

Review by Hanlie Robbertse, Reedsy Discovery: “Worth reading… A sci-fi book mixing legend and religious characters and stories. It brings us the myths of Atlantis and the Bible in a different, new way… The technology used and talked about in the book… creates a story where myth meets real world…This is a book for pure science fiction fans and also young adult readers… it is an interesting new take on old themes and has a lot to offer… a page turner.”

Review by The Prairie Book Review: “Cook plunges readers into a layered world of science and religion in this intricate first installment in the Last of the Atlanteans series. Not only humanity but the whole earth is in danger of being extinct. Noah has warned the world about the coming flood. But other than his family, no one has paid any attention. However, the Atlantean telepathic wunderkind-scientist, Ithyanna has an inkling about the impending apocalypse. Trying to secure a single space-ark to carry nucleus of humans, Ithyanna is met with heavy resistance. The economy is in shambles, and a growing threat of all-out war with the totalitarian Lemuria is looming on Atlantis. But Ithyanna is determined to face any difficulty and succeed. But what happens when the creator himself comes and stands in the way?

Cook keeps the action brisk and tension high, and his vast SF world is utterly intricate, demanding careful reading on readers’ part. Jumping between various timelines and managing a large array of characters, Cook efficiently captures the crude human messiness of ignorance, self-centeredness, and greed. The more science-oriented and nonbelievers may find the eerie climax uncharacteristically contrived, but Ithyanna’s transformation from skeptical observer to desperate believer toward the end is portrayed with conviction, and it’s through her story that Cook conveys the book’s underlying message about God being the ultimate creator as well as destroyer and how in all things, a person really has no option but to acknowledge their utter dependence on God’s sovereign plan. This Bible-inspired apocalyptic tale is not for everyone, but lovers of intricate evangelical literature will be rewarded.

About Don Edward Cook: I decided to become a writer late in life. My faith in God and my love for both freedom and science fiction has resulted in my novel “Ithyanna, Last Daughter of Atlantis, Book I: How the World Ended Millennia Ago”, which is based on my Fanshawe College AFM capstone short film “The Last Atlantean” (2009). I currently reside in London, Ontario, Canada.

William Hanna’s Books

The Broken Promise Of A Promised Land by William Hanna.

Zionism . . . promotes the narrative that the Nazi holocaust is exceptional in human history – despite it being one of many holocausts from Native Americans North and South to Armenia and Rwanda. It sets Jews apart from the victims and survivors of other genocides instead of uniting us with them . . . Billions of US dollars flow annually to Israel to sustain the occupation and Israel’s sophisticated and brutal army. The war machine they fund is a leader in the global arms industry, which drains resources craved by a world in desperate need of water, food, health care, housing and education. – International Jewish anti-Zionist Network Charter

. . .Palestinian dispossession and occupation are by design. Zionism has meant profound trauma for generations, systematically separating Palestinians from their homes, land, and each other. Zionism, in practice, has resulted in massacres of Palestinian people, ancient villages and olive groves destroyed, families who live just a mile away from each other separated by checkpoints and walls, and children holding onto the keys of the homes from which their grandparents were forcibly exiled . . .- Jewish Voice for Peace in its “Approach to Zionism”

What will be seared into the consciousness of the world will be the image of Israel as a blood-stained monster, ready at any moment to commit war crimes and not prepared to abide by any moral restraints . . .- Uri Avnery, former Zionist Irgun paramilitary member

5 Stars: A book about current political, economic, and global events.

This book is for those of us not afraid to question our own preconceived ideas about the universe, humanity, systematic social divisions, democracy, racism, politics, and religious beliefs. Each chapter contains facts and quotes from world renowned scholars, politicians, writers/poets, and experts in the fields of democracy and human rights including observations such as the following:

“Zionism promotes the narrative that the Nazi holocaust is exceptional in human history, despite it being one of many holocausts from Native Americans North and South to Armenia and Rwanda. It sets Jews apart from the victims and survivors of other genocides instead of uniting us with them. Billions of US dollars flow annually to Israel to sustain the occupation and Israel’s sophisticated and brutal army. The war machine they fund is a leader in the global arms industry, which drains resources craved by a world in desperate need of water, food, health care, housing and education.” Written by the International Jewish anti-Zionist Network Charter

With so much information available in this book, it is difficult to decide what should be mentioned:

“Following 70 years of intensive excavations in the Land of Israel, archaeologists have found out: The patriarchs’ acts are legendary, the Israelites did not sojourn in Egypt or make an exodus, they did not conquer the land. Neither is there any mention of the empire of David and Solomon, nor of the source of belief in the God of Israel. These facts have been known for years, but Israel is a stubborn people and nobody wants to hear about it. This is what archaeologists have learned from their excavations in the Land of Israel: the Israelites were never in Egypt, did not wander in the desert, did not conquer the land in a military campaign and did not pass it on to the 12 tribes of Israel. Perhaps even harder to swallow is the fact that the united monarchy of David and Solomon, which is described by the Bible as a regional power, was at most a small tribal kingdom. And it will come as an unpleasant shock to many that the God of Israel, Jehovah, had a female consort and that the early Israelite religion adopted monotheism only in the waning period of the monarchy and not at Mount Sinai. Most of those who are engaged in scientific work in the interlocking spheres of the Bible, archaeology and the history of the Jewish people and who once went into the field looking for proof to corroborate the Bible story, now agree that the historic events relating to the stages of the Jewish people’s emergence are radically different from what that story tells.”

“Ze’ev Herzog, professor of archaeology at The Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures at Tel Aviv University specializing in social archaeology, ancient architecture, and field archaeology debunks the historic Exodus myth in Deconstructing the Walls of Jericho.”

“Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.” Article 18, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

I couldn’t put this book down, whether I agreed or not, I had to know more. I invite you to read ‘The Broken Promise Of A Promised Land’ by author William Hanna, who is a London-based freelance writer on democracy and human rights.

Bob Price’s Books

Space Village One by Bob Price.

Escaping an abusive partner is as tough in 2060 as it was in 2020. You just have further to run. Running as far away as possible was top of Melissa’s list especially as her husband was President of an authoritarian regime the British Democratic Republic. Finding a neutral haven close enough to reach quickly key to her escape plan. Hence, she chose Space Village One a neutral colony of settlers orbiting two hundred and fifty miles above the Earth.

These days the only safe haven for anyone not wanting to be included in a future war was to leave the planet. Space Village One offered much for those able to reach it including fortifications made from minerals found on Mars and Venus that made it stronger than anything built on Earth. Not that the villagers were warriors, most were engineers and scientists led by Mayor Cannon. Numbering just one hundred fifty villagers they represented a society of equality that shamed surface societies. For that reason, none had been allowed to return to the surface for two decades the authorities fearing what their populations might do after learning that equality in a population was possible.

Mike Oborn’s Books

Toward Happier Choices by Mike Oborn.

A Coffee Conspiracy!

This book is a Memoir better described as an Anthology of a person’s life. It also might be looked at as a transition piece by a person who doesn’t tell, but shows how he reinvented his life.

“Our challenges strengthen and increase us. Our failures define our path. Without them we don’t grow.

Are you unhappy? Does your bank account suffer from diarrhea? Where do you fit in? How do you change your life?

No one can change your life for you. I can show you what I did. It’s all about re-inventing our lives.”

About The Author: Mike Oborn recently received two awards from Readers Favorite. 5 Star rating medallion and an Honorable Mention. Thank you, ‘Readers Favorite’.

The Complete Mystery of Matthew Alcott has become a subject of heated debate and interest among angry Mormons, ex-Mormons, and religious scholars. Oborn’s book has been critiqued and reviewed on five continents.

A growing audience of interest is spreading though borderline church members in the 14,000,000 memberships of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Oborn has piqued the indignation of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles In Salt Lake City for writing a suspense fiction using the cultural environment of Mormonism as the backdrop of his story just as Dan Brown did among the Cardinals of Rome with the Da Vinci Code.

Oborn served an honorable two-year mission for the Mormon Church. He is the son of a manager of The Deseret Industries, a non-profit church welfare organization.

A fascination with science and cultural anthropology, Oborn graduated from Weber State University and holds a title of Chemical Dependency Professional in the State of Washington.

More About Mike Oborn as an Actor, Director, and Retired Drunk: Michael is a Chemical Dependency Professional working with addicts and their families. He is affiliated with SAFE CALL NOW, a nonprofit organization involved with police and firefighters. “Our first responders have the most difficult job in our society. As a result of the high stress and injury rates they have a suicide rate almost three times that of us, the citizen they protect and serve. Most of that number suffer the disease of addiction. Very few people realize this.”

Message From The Author: If you like Charles Bukowski, E. Annie Proulx, Craig Johnson, or Edward Abbey, I’m your man. Mine writing has been called a Karate style.

Why Mystery/Suspense? I wanted to write a book that was entertaining, historically enlightening, and educational. I did so because so few non-Mormons really know what being a Mormon means. When people ask me at author readings for book clubs and book stores, “What is the strangest experience you have had when talking to people about your book, I have to say, People’s reactions.”

A non-Mormon will tell me something like, “I find this hard to believe.” An ex-Mormon, on the other hand, will hug me and exclaim, “You’ve made it understandable. I didn’t think anyone could.”

Non-Mormon’s have a hard time believing what it really means to be a Mormon.

I am a cancer survivor.

When my sweetheart was diagnosed with the ugly word, cancer, the three years that followed were a blue blur.

I remember words like endometrium and carcinoma. My first memory was surgery in which they took out pieces of her and discarded them. I remember the quilt group of women she belonged to that unanimously recommended, “get the spinal.” I remember in pre op the anesthesiologist, a lazy older dude that ignored the quilt groups advise when my back was turned. I remember her pain in post op and the looks I received when I spoke to the nurse in charge as said “do the spinal and do it now. I don’t care if it is post op.” They were smart and had another anesthesiologist do the procedure. I remember chemicals so toxic the nurses had to be careful handling it when they set up the I.V. that shot it into my sweetheart’s veins and arteries. I remember the day my sweetheart asked me to take my beard trimmer to her hair and how we wept as I sheered her head. I remember her donation of hats to the medical center when her hair started growing back, twelve in all. I remember sleeping in hospital rooms on chairs. I remember an overhead machine damn near the size of a Volkswagen that bombarded my wife’s stomach with something invisible called radiation. It was in a lead lined room with a twelve-inch-thick door. I had to leave her lying on a cold slab under that Goddamn machine naked, cold, and alone. I remember diarrhea so fierce she was hospitalized for twelve days. I remember the doctor that insisted it was Crohn’s Disease. We lived with it for over a year with no relief before we went to a Naturopathic Doctor that said, “Let’s see what you are allergic to.” Sure, enough the radiation that was pointed at the endometrium damaged the stomach also. The Naturopathic doctor with a suggested diet change gave us our lives back. It has been over six years now and we are good and I lived through it.

I have advice. For any who care to know when it gets serious and you are spending a lot of time with medical people take an advocate with you. At every stage have someone with you who represents you and if the doctor refuses to acknowledge them and or their questions fire the bastard and get a second opinion.

Michael states, “He is spoiled rotten by his sweetheart of 22 years.”

Kathleen J. Shields’ Books

The First Unibear by Kathleen J. Shields.

This happy-go-lucky little Bear cub loves to explore! One day he follows a butterfly into the dark woods where he sees a curious sight and a shimmering light. A beautiful white horse needs help and this tiny young bear hurries to save him. What follows is a magically inspirational tale of what can happen if you follow your heart, have good in your soul, and do good deeds.

“Only the pure with good in their soul have the power and magic to see me as whole.” ~ The Unicorn

  • Colorfully Illustrated
  • Rhyming Story
  • Strong Moral Values
  • Scripture about Unicorns

“Once you receive the gold on your head, the magic will flourish, the magic will spread.”

Review: “Simplicity of the Purest of Heart. I had the pleasure of knowing the author when she was a child. My mind wanders back to a little girl with twinkles in her eyes who had a very active spirit and imagination. And this book is definitely proof of that. Thoroughly enjoyed the story of kindness paid forward from the eyes of a very wise 10-year-old.

So much deeper than beautiful rhymes and vibrant pictures. God answers prayers. When all seems dark and dismal, He’s only a prayer away.

When bear related his story to his friends, some were awed, while others scoffed. So, it is when we try to tell others the ‘good news’ and spread the ‘word.’ Some people will be hears only, while others will be doers. When you do a good deed, do not do so with expectations. Do it with a good heart and the purest of intentions. When others see this, they will do the same and thus start a chain reaction of goodness.

I am blown over by this beautiful book! The illustrations are amazing and the rhyming story is simply adorable. This is an inspiring story about doing nice things for others and doing it only because you want to do good. This is bound to be one of those books that everyone will want to have.”

About The Author: Award-winning author with 30+ published books, Children’s Educational picture books, Tween adventure stories and Christian Inspirational Fiction.

5 Stars: Acts Of Kindness and Lessons Learned!

This bear Adventure is “Enchanting”. Beautiful bright, colorful illustrations by Aashay Utkarsh will delight children. This enchanting story told by Award Winning Author Kathleen J. Shields inspires children as they join Bear on his adventurous day outside. Bear’s act of kindness and pure heart brings him face-to-face with a magical unicorn. Bear’s woodland friends do not believe his unicorn story at first. Many lessons will be learned, including acts of kindness naturally spread to others, even if it starts with ‘The First Unibear’.

I recommend this teaching kindness picture book for all young readers 4-10 years old. ‘The First Unibear’ should be placed in community, church, and school libraries. I hope this book finds its ways to those children confined to hospitals and homeless shelters. There is even a black and white coloring book to purchase so the magic can continue.

Jennifer Freedman’s Books

Toby’s Tale by Jennifer Freedman.

Toby’s Tale is a story of strength, perseverance and love. Toby is a Schnauzer puppy who selflessly leaves his family and embarks on a great adventure as he seeks his forever home. He learns about friendship, loyalty and kindness, but he also experiences cruelty and hopelessness. Toby’s Tale is full of colorful characters — both two-legged and four-legged — who play key roles as Toby takes each step of his journey.

Traveling with Toby on his journey to adulthood is an excursion along life’s road; a trip that shows how all creatures are searching for the safe, secure place where they belong. With that goal in mind, Toby overcomes hardship and loneliness by finding an inner strength stemming from the values of family, friendship, loyalty and faith.

Toby’s Tale is a learning experience shared in a visionary, fun way with valuable lessons about life. It’s a story about hard choices. An adventure that gives people four legs instead of two, by allowing them to view life through the eyes of a dog. A tale about belief, tenacity and love. As your fingers run through the pages, Toby will run through your heart.

Jon Cocks’ Books

Angel of Aleppo by Jon Cocks.

A Story of the Armenian Genocide.

Soldiers murder her mother. They force her from the family home.

Anoush must endure a death march through unforgiving desert, as Armenian refugees perish all about her, some of the million-plus whose blood forever stains the hands of the Ottoman Turks and the souls of their descendants.

Courageously keeping her small group of neighbourhood women together, Anoush endures the brutish guards driving a massive column of women, children, and old men south from Anatolia through Aleppo to the Mesopotamian desert. She learns to nurse against all odds in a city overflowing with diseased and starving refugees. She becomes the Angel of Aleppo.

In the years that follow, can she find the will to be the woman her mama raised her to be? Can she summon the strength to care?

From Anatolia to Aleppo and beyond, through the outrages and injustices of the 1915 Armenian Genocide, Angel of Aleppo, a Story of the Armenian Genocide is about losing everything but the healing power of love.

Review by Literary Titan: Emotionally charged historical fiction that feels like it’s a true story… the writing is wonderful.

Review by Glam Adelaide: Reads like a thriller except that, tragically, it is based on truth…belongs on the big screen…How can so many of us not know about this?

Review by Readers’ Favorite: A must-read for readers who enjoy historical fiction. I found it absolutely riveting and highly recommend it.

5 Stars: “For without love, where are we?”

‘Angel of Aleppo’ is a profoundly thought-provoking account that speaks to the horror of the Armenian Genocide, which preceded Adolf Hitler’s Holocaust.

Author Jon Cocks demonstrates his impeccable research, as even today, there are those in Turkey who still deny their own history. With clarity of mind, heart, and soul this author masterfully brings his readers back to 1915. This story is so intense, the scenes so clear, your mind will act as the silver screen. For those of us who will never travel to the War Memorial on North Terrace in Adelaide, South Australia, Jon Cocks is on a mission to honor the estimated 1.5 million Armenians who were tortured and killed. Adelaide’s memorial is like the Cenotaph in London. It carries the names of fallen SA soldiers. Anoush goes there as it is the only place, she can think of to honour Thomas, who was a belated war casualty.

It is important for you to know that ‘Angel of Aleppo’ was inspired by the author’s wife Lilit’s grandmother Anoush, a survivor of the Armenian Genocide, who lost her own mother in 1915. Every living Armenian remains affected by the genocide, now four generations ago.

As you read ‘Angel of Aleppo’ you will be reminded that “Faith’s light can lift the darkest soul. Faith’s fire can warm the coldest heart. Faith, it is said, can move mountains.”

I invite you to walk alongside a nurse named Anoush, as this is her story. Watch her bring love and compassion to others, as horrific events unfold around her. ‘Angel of Aleppo’ is a brutally honest account that will stir deep emotion. It should serve as a stark reminder not to cover up or deny history.

The author has placed a wonderful glossary of Armenian, Turkish and German words at the end of this book. I suggest you familiarize yourself with it before you begin reading.

Jon Cocks taught secondary Drama and English for many years. He has unpublished cartoon strips, a long list of credits in community theatre, a long-running TV ad, several one-act plays written for students, and a novella about being a teacher called ‘Duty of Care’. Other than an enduring love affair with his Armenian-born wife Lilit, Jon loves books, theatre, movies, the Adelaide Crows, cricket, and wine.

I highly recommend this book to those of you who want to know history and also those of you who are determined to teach upcoming generations about the horror of genocide and the value of faith.

Editorial Review (Book Marketing Global Network).

From the Author: The story of Angel of Aleppo was inspired by my Armenian wife Lilit’s own grandmother Anoush, who witnessed a Turkish soldier murder her own mother in 1915. Few Australians know the other April 1915 story, the April 24, 1915 slaughter of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, initially smoke-screened by the Dardanelles campaign. Turkish leaders instigated a long-formulated plan to begin murdering Armenians, because the world’s attention was on the Dardanelles. Few Australians know of Armenia, let alone the unacknowledged genocide that tortures its national soul. Once I had come to understand the Australian connection, and mindful – in June 2014 – that the 2015 centenary commemoration of the Armenian Genocide was looming, the idea to stage a play formed in my mind. The Armenian Cultural Association of SA worked with me in Adelaide to stage my 75-minute play to commemorate the centenary of the Armenian Genocide in 2015. The play’s action centred around a confrontation at the SA War Memorial on North Tce between an elderly Armenian woman and an elderly Turkish man on the fiftieth anniversary of the genocide: April 24, 1965. After the group performed the play successfully in Adelaide and to great acclaim for two performances in Sydney, Lilit and I agreed that the journey was not over. I decided to build on Anoush and write the novel.

Anoush is inspired by Lilit’s grandmother, an indomitable woman who survived the genocide, lived into her eighties and imbued love, respect and family values into every one of her 37 grandchildren. The character is sixteen when a nightmarish day changes her life forever. She suffers alone and as a part of the greater Armenian suffering, but draws on the strength of her family background in her darkest moments to prevail. I began crafting the narrative of my literary Anoush’s youthful trials during 1915-19, beginning by fleshing out experiences alluded to in her character’s dialogue from the play. A great deal of research followed in the next year and there were numerous artistic choices made. Angel has a number of cameo appearances by characters who were real life historical figures, e.g., US President Woodrow Wilson. In those instances, I research their lives and study photos of them, looking for clues to their characters in their faces. In the case of characters who are literary constructs, like Anoush, I imbue them with character-appropriate physical qualities and personality traits from actual people I know or have known. I have an image of a beautiful blonde, blue-eyed woman in my head, which no artist can realise to my satisfaction. That is why there is no image of Anoush on the cover.

The novel’s ongoing theme is the outrage that was the Armenian Genocide and the lack of recognition of it by the successors of its perpetrators. The fact that the Armenian Genocide was the first Genocide of the twentieth century is an indictment upon every overly ambitious leader who ever pulled on a jackboot and donned medals before ordering his army to murder civilians. Mass killings of people because of race or colour or other ideological and/or religious obsession are a stain what constitutes civilisation. They make a mockery of what ‘civil’ means. Those who do not study history, so the truism goes, are doomed to repeat its mistakes. And there is no shortage of well-fed, middle-aged men with imperatorial ambitions not averse to throwing the weight of their armed forces about to make an ideological point. And on a less murderous scale, but no less iniquitous, are the many neo-conservative leaders abroad today who, with the financial support and particular concerns of their billionaire friends as influences, use government machinery and ideological justification to deny a decent living to large sectors of their populations. Social justice is a commodity sorely lacking in this post-modern world of materialist obsession that so often overshadows simple humanity.

And this brings me to the most important theme of all, that of love, an emotion so enduring and so powerful in its purest form that it can prevail against the most appalling disasters and hateful crimes. Anoush suffers like few have suffered, but the power of the love in her heart sees her through. For without love, were, are we?

Duty of Care by Jonathan Gordon Cocks

Sometimes it takes the most trying circumstances to achieve extraordinary results.

Teacher Peter Moon is hesitating at one of life’s crossroads. While dithering whether he should give up his increasingly frustrating job in education for one in the ‘real world’, he is asked to lead a school camping trip. But little could he foresee how this seemingly innocent outing would change lives forever.

Debut novel from Jon Cocks, ‘Duty of Care’, is a satirical look at how everyday events can spin in the most unexpected directions. Think of ‘Lord of the Flies’ meeting the ridiculousness of today’s school reform and you’ll have insight into what Cocks achieves in this fast-paced, wry and poignant read.

One Woman’s Path in Uncertain Times.

As a teenager, Eva tries to stop her father’s drinking while attempting to find solidarity in his trips in nature. In her art, she feels complete until learning she’s not good enough.

After many years of Eva’s parents being together, their divorce releases a repressed memory as she tries to establish boundaries with her parents.

Gwen, Eva’s friend guides her through her relationships and encourages her to use yoga for solace. At a breaking point, Eva is about to lose her job, has a cold that won’t go away, and is overwhelmed with her relationships.

Judy Salz’ Books

Worthy by Judy Salz.

The earthquake that strikes their hospital catapults three strangers into life-long friendships and exposes the fault lines in each of their characters. Dr. Jenny Gordon, Dr. Mark Stewart, and Chaplain Joseph Waters, all with troubled pasts, yearn to regain their self-esteem, and better their lives and the lives of others. Their determination to overcome obstacles results in a discovery that profoundly benefits mankind. Follow their lives and adventures as they learn to love and trust themselves and each other. Their inspirational journey exemplifies the ability of all of us to make the most of who we are.

Review by Linda Thompson, Host of TheAuthorsShow.com: Worthy is a well-written feel-good read. First time author, Salz, shows a lot of depth in her character descriptions, and the story line is solid. I appreciate the story ending in the future, so as to seem more realistic. If this story actually came to pass it would be a wonderful thing indeed, but we can only dream. While, at times, the writing does get bogged down a bit due to over-attention to details, I read Worthy in one sitting, not wanting to put it down until I knew what happened on the very last page. Anyone looking for a novel that speaks from and to the heart, addresses global health challenges, and proves the need for each individual to feel love and a sense of purpose, Worthy should be at the top of your must-read list. I’ll be recommending this one to all my bookworm friends.

Review by Arya Fomonyuy, Readers’ Favorite: Worthy by Judy Salz is a slim, inspirational novel that explores the deeper meaning of friendship, following the lives of three unusual characters bound together by an inscrutable bond. It is the story of two doctors and a chaplain whose lives are irresistibly linked after a tragedy. Dr. Jenny Gordon has had a very painful past and it catches up with her in ways that tend to overshadow the beauty of her work and womanhood. Dr. Mark Stewart has had a pleasant childhood until a tragedy that altered the way he looks at life. The chaplain, Joseph Waters, has had his own share of problems and he is struggling to redefine his image of God. A friendship between these three people will dramatically change the way they see themselves, God, and the world. Judy Salz’s novel is very inspiring. It is one of the best books I have read on the spirituality of friendship, a story with deeper layers, exploring the beauty of humanity. This book so beautifully shows how our connections with others can help us see ourselves even better, and how friendship can become a haven for the restless heart. The writing is impeccable and the diction is accessible. Salz has a way with words and her narrative voice is as clear as it is compelling. The characters are well-explored and, through a combination of well-crafted dialogues and highly descriptive prose, the author leads readers into the climates of the hearts of her characters and their inner worlds. Worthy redefines the way we look at friendship and gives readers great entertainment, subtly showing them how to transform their lives through genuine human connections. It is a page-turner.

Review by Megan Bain, U.S. Review of Books: The lives of doctors Jenny Gordon and Mark Stewart along with Chaplain Joseph Waters are thrown together when a massive earthquake destroys the hospital where they are working. Now, on his first day of work, Mark must mark patients who managed to escape with ribbons: red for immediate attention, blue for beyond help, and yellow for less serious. Mark is torn as he feels he is playing God in the decision of who lives or dies. Jenny is treating all the patients she can, and Joseph, on his second day as the hospital chaplain, is administering last rights. None of these remarkable characters have had an easy past, and it comes to haunt them, especially on this disastrous day. As time moves on, readers find out about the soured pasts of these three characters and experience them overcome all obstacles together to bring hope, love, spirituality, and healing to as many people as possible throughout the rest of their lives. Through these experiences, these admirable characters also grow spiritually themselves and dispel the ghosts of the past. Salz has created an inspiring novel focusing on faith and spirituality. She shows readers how by faith one can change their life regardless of circumstance. Mark was once homeless, Jenny always feels inadequate due to her mother, and Joseph has a troubled youth with a criminal record yet these three fascinating characters change the entire world with their research, work, prayers, and faith as the novel progresses. Salz connects her astonishing characters by drawing on her background as a physician herself, lending validity to her compelling story. She expresses how people can truly transform not only their lives but also the lives of others all around the world by just having simple faith in yourself and those around you.

5 Stars-Tragedy Turns To Inspiration!

The story begins as an L.A. County Hospital endures a devastating earthquake. The pressure is on to determine if all the patients have been evacuated. Doctors Jenny Gordon and Mark Stewart, along with Chaplain Joseph are thrown into a triage situation that resembles war time.

Throughout history, amazing friendships and lifelong bonds emerge from tragedy. It is important to know that Jenny Gordon, Mark Stewart and Joseph Waters are perhaps, like yourself, struggling with past circumstances while going about the routines of everyday work and life. As you read about each of these individuals, you will come to respect the author’s insights. She weaves a story that will inspire you and leave a lasting impression. Out of tragedy comes new perspective, challenges, and possible innovation that will benefit all on the planet.

Let me bring you into chapter 3:

…He left the triage area and sat down under a tree, tears streaming down his face.

…Joseph looked up to see a man about his age walking toward him. His salt-and-pepper hair and clothing were covered with dirt and blood, and a stethoscope hung loosely around his neck. Joseph saw dark rings under his eyes.

…“You all right, Chaplain?” the man asked him. “I saw you sitting there, and thought you might be injured.”

…“Physically, I’m fine. Emotionally, no.” Joseph wiped his eyes with the back of his hand.

…The man sit down next to him, rubbing the dirt off his hands. “Yeah, me, too. I’m Mark Stewart. It’s my first day as an intern.” Mark shook his head. “I don’t feel ready for all this.”

…“An intern? You look way too old to be an intern!” Joseph felt his face flush. “Oh, I’m so sorry, I shouldn’t have said that. It’s none of my business.”

…“It’s okay. I got a late start. A long story. Maybe another time. How about you? How long have you been a hospital chaplain?”

…Joseph smiled for the first time since the earthquake struck. “Two days. I’m also a late bloomer. Also, a long story. I’m Joseph Waters.”

…They stood and shook hands. “Two beginners, neither prepared to cope.” Mark gestured toward the triage area. “I guess we’d both better get back to work.”

Author Judy Salz’ inspiration for this compelling story comes from her thirty years of internal medicine practice, patient encounters, and life experiences. She is currently an investigator doing clinical research. She expresses how people can truly transform not only their lives but also the lives of others all around the world by just having simple faith in yourself and those around you.

You will be challenged by the shared experiences of these admirable characters who use their experiences to grow, move beyond the post traumatic events of their past, and engage in activities that will promote healing in a hurting world.

Virginia Wright’s Books

A Christmas to Remember by Virginia Wright.

Dr. Shane, a Heartwarming, Christmas Medical Romance Novel!

‘The doctor had fantasized about this moment since the first time he laid eyes on Muriel…’

When an automobile accident on Deadman’s Curve throws Doctor Shane French and Muriel Dufrense together, they feel a once-in-a-lifetime kind of connection. However, the road to a fairy tale ending proves to be a bumpy one, as old flames return to test their relationship, and a potentially life-threatening illness threatens to tear them apart.

Can Shane set aside his feelings for Muriel to save her life, or would his feelings contradict the Physician’s Hippocratic Oath?

Will his childhood sweetheart come between Shane and Muriel?

Will Shane and Muriel make it home in time for their happily-ever-after Christmas to remember?

Reviews:

“A Christmas to Remember is a sweet romance that will warm you up on a cold winter’s night.” By Ingrid Hall, writer of women’s contemporary fiction

“A heart-warming Christmas love story with a medical twist.” By Dennis Higgins, author of Pennies From Across the Veil

“A Christmas to Remember is a page-turner that will answer if true love can beat the odds against it.” By Launa McNeilly, Author of Lies, In a Season of Tribulation

“A charming romance that reads like a Hallmark.” By Joe Pranaitis, Author of Temporal Experiment

From The Author: Welcome!

Thank you so much for purchasing A Christmas to Remember.

Truth be told, some might admit that they have had feelings for or had a romantic relationship with their doctor. Research shows these instances in the medical field are infrequent. Still, this type of forbidden love with a doctor-patient does occasionally occur, and this is my inspiration for this fictional medical romance.

I hope you enjoy A Christmas to Remember, as much as I loved writing it. Moreover, when you turn the last page of Shane and Muriel’s love story that you go away with an emotionally satisfying feeling!

Until next time, Virginia Wright

Shake Hands with the Devil by Tory Gates.

Book 3 of 3: Sweet Dreams Series.

Aki Sato is back…

Aki’s life has surpassed even her wildest dreams. In five years, Aki has found success and stardom in music, and more importantly, love in her partner and collaborator, Kiya.

But for Aki, the dream has become a nightmare: Kiya is lost in time, and a force Aki has never before encountered blocks her ability to time travel, the Amida.

Aki discovers a hidden enemy within the Amida, who seeks her power and leaves the thing most dear to Aki hanging in the balance. To Aki, there is no alternative but one dangerous, and desperate gamble.

The third volume in the Sweet Dreams Series, “Shake Hands with the Devil” finds Aki Sato at her most obsessed, even ruthless in her search for Kiya and to protect the Amida. Meanwhile, Kiya sails the Great Lakes in 1960s America, knowing she is on her own, until Aki can find her.

Tory Gates brings the Sweet Dreams Series full circle in “Shake Hands with the Devil,” available at SunburyPress.com, Amazon and wherever great books are sold.

Call It Love by Tory Gates
Book 2 of 3: Sweet Dreams Series

The Sweet Dreams Series returns…

Months have passed since Aki Sato discovered her time-traveling powers. Aki knows she cannot change the past nor can she solve her problems in the real world. Beset by fresh trauma, Aki feels there’s no way out. Her only hope comes from music and a voice that calls to her from her power of time travel.

When Aki agrees to help her brother Hiro start a new band, they are joined by two people that Aki can’t help but be attracted to: Kiya, a brilliant pianist and singer; and Zendo, a former monk and guitarist. Both bring their own musical skill and style, but Aki feels something from each that goes far beyond music.

Through friendship, trust, and new connections, Aki goes back in time to uncover a hidden past and to make an amazing discovery. Once more, she is reminded of the healing power of music, and people, in Call It Love.

Searching for Roy Buchanan by Tory Gates
Book 1 of 3: Sweet Dreams Series

Aki Sato is not your typical teenager. She has weathered the loss of her parents and joined her brothers, Kenji and Hiro in a struggle to keep the family business, and themselves together.

Aki has also inherited the Amida Syndrome, the power of time travel. Without her mother to guide her, Aki has no experience in its use, nor can she defend against the terrifying nightmares that haunt her.

A chance breakdown leads the siblings to Kazu, an eccentric retired blues musician. In a series of misadventures, Aki must guide her brothers through time, space, and the world of the blues. In time, Aki not only discovers her own voice, but the power of music.

The journey through time and life is just getting started in “Searching for Roy Buchanan.”

Five Stars: The Power Of Music!

Fascinating time travel, action adventure involving teenage characters who discover the power of music.

As an avid listener to classical and jazz, I admit, I had to google the late great American guitarist and blues musician Leroy “Roy” Buchanan. My husband plays professional clarinet and is very familiar with this pioneer of Telecaster sound.

As a broadcaster for more than thirty years, Author Tory Gates has found his new calling, as a vivid fantasy story teller.

Book One, Searching for Roy Buchanan (Sweet Dreams), begins with teenage Aki experiencing something between a night mare and night terrors, as she “cried out one long, agonized scream”.

As a grandmother and book reviewer, my heart went out the kids. I am awe of the mystical and musical experiences that touched these young lives. A story of tragedy and triumph. A compelling journey into art, music appreciation, Japanese language, wrapped in healing mystical time travel that brings acute self-awareness and an adventure that brings unexpected maturity in time when Aki and her brothers should still be children.

Let me draw you into the story line in Chapter 5.

“Aki sat on her bed. Naked but for the T-shirt she slept in, Aki sweated, but was cold. She drew her comforter about herself in the dark room.

She looked up through her tousled hair, at the sun, which fingered its way through the blinds. Fingers slipped between one another, Aki rested them against her forehead and breathed. She wanted to stand but could not.

Thoughts, random and specific, passed through her mind, and though she tried to set them free again, she could not. When I was young, my mother called me a dreamer. She meant it with affection.

The truth is, while I may have at times imagined myself as someone else, I have no dreams. Those things I might have wished for were cast aside when Mom and Dad died. I am no longer a girl; all of us grew up that day.”

I invite you to see for yourself what happens to Aki and her brothers. What is Amida Syndrome? Is it a gift or curse?

Now we wait for book two in this series.

A Moment In The Sun by Tory Gates

Sixteen-year-old Rei Murata appears to have everything: good looks, brains, artistic skill and admiring friends. But Rei is a survivor—of loss, neglect and of self-isolation. Locked away from a world where she felt unwanted, Rei was one of the millions known as the hikikomori.

A chance meeting leads Rei to discover the online world of the Dwellers. Astonished to find her former classmate Sho among their number, Rei is determined to rescue him. Rei learns she must come to terms with her past before she can face her future. For her peers, the barriers of class and society must fall, so they too can move forward.

No one is ever lost, Rei believes. She hopes to lead Sho, and the rest to their moment in the sun.

Live from the Cafe by Tory Gates

“What did you dream today?”

Harlandsville, Quebec—look up the definition of small town in a dictionary, and you’ll find its picture.

A one-stoplight village, Harlandsville doesn’t have a lot to offer, or so it seems. Old homes, an abandoned mill, a gas station, one Chinese takeout joint, and a former pub turned into a coffee shop. For the latter, one learns never to judge a book by its cover.

One step through the doors of Le Cafe, and you enter a world where the coffee is brewed one pot at a time through a strange machine, the pastries are homemade, and the music is a roadmap of Canada’s history.

Presided over by Luc, the son of one of Harlandsville’s most loved residents and his partner Emily, the cafe is home to natives and visitors alike. Where the coffee is strong, the spirit of friendship stronger, and occasional strange (and famous?) characters show up to hang out, and play music.

Small-town life, love, change, prejudice, pasts and futures are examined and experienced. The heartbeat of Harlandsville is right here. You never know who’ll show up, or what will happen next, Live from the Cafe…

Parasite Girls by Tory Gates

Aidan Connor is a globetrotting American photojournalist.

Burned out from a disastrous assignment, he turns up on the Tokyo doorstep of his old college friend, Mima. He soon learns that Mima’s past (and his own) have become present. A talented artist, Mima is struggling to make it on her own. Two of her oldest friends, Sora and Eko are also battling a peculiar form of social injustice: they are branded “Parasite Singles” because both still live at home despite being in their early thirties.

Aidan knows everyone has a story: a brilliant painter, Sora suffers from mental illness. Eko, who appears to be the poster child for the term also has a dark past. As he remakes himself, Aidan is reminded of what kept him close to Mima all these years.

He also sees what keeps Mima, Sora, Eko and Mima’s old love so close as well…one thing never dies.

Pete Pallet was born as a loveable character that children can learn from.

They are reassured that ‘even grown-ups get nervous’. It is David’s hope that Pete the Pallet books will encourage kids and help parents teach their children valuable lessons.

Ulff Lehmann’s Books

Shattered Dreams (Light in the Dark Book 1) by Ulff Lehmann.

Epic Fantasy filled to the brim with Grimdark Reality If one looks too long into the abyss, the abyss looks back. Drangar Ralgon has been avoiding the abyss’s gaze for far too long and now he turns to face it.

For a hundred years the young kingdom of Danastaer has thrived in peace. Now their northern neighbor, mighty Chanastardh, has begun a cunning invasion. Thrust into events far beyond his control, the mercenary Drangar Ralgon flees his solitary life as a shepherd to evade the coming war and take responsibility for his crimes. In Dunthiochagh, Danastaer’s oldest city, the holy warrior Kildanor uncovers the enemy’s plans for invasion.

As ancient forces reach forth to shape the world once more, the sorceress Ealisaid wakes from a century of hibernation only to realize the Dunthiochagh she knew is no more. Magic, believed long gone, returns, and with it comes an elven wizard sent to recover a dangerous secret.

SHATTERED DREAMS is a rich, layered high fantasy, the beginning of an epic that will be well worth following for years to come. Looming menace, thoughtful world-building; a winner! –Ed Greenwood (NYTimes bestselling fantasy writer)

Review by C.T. Top Contributor: Star Trek: 5.0 out of 5 Stars, A grim and bitter brew of low fantasy action!

I’m a big fan of Mark Lawrence’s Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off and while I don’t participate in it, I always use it as an option to find new and exciting books to review. One of these books is Shattered Dreams by Ulff Lehmann, an author I will freely admit to have talked to before I read his work back when we were both posters on the Forgotten Realms Candlekeep forums. So, take this review with a grain of salt but also note I’ve never been one to shy away from telling the truth about friends or their work.

So, what did I think?

Shattered Dreams is an entertaining dark low fantasy novel about a Germanic kingdom under siege by an invading army, a religious cult devoted to the god of war, traumatized veterans, an elven wizard, and a talking squirrel. The fact this has a talking squirrel and this is still one of the grittier fantasy novels I’ve read since Game of Thrones. Indeed, despite the elven sections having high fantasy magic, the majority of the setting is a dark lawless world where life is cheap. Eventually, it becomes about a siege, a conspiracy, and a book which can end the world.

My favorite character is Dragnar Ralgon, who is a veteran traumatized by his experiences and driven to the point of suicide attempts. He makes an unlikely hero but events shift around him that links his personal tragedies to the larger threats in the kingdom. None of the characters are actually all that heroic, though, as they’re all driven by various motives ranging from religious fanaticism to trying to make a last meaningful accomplishment before they are too old to fight.

Generally, the best part of this book are the parts which deal with the grizzled old veterans of the story like the Chosen, Riders, and Dragnar. This is the area where Ulff Lehmann’s writing shines. He’s also very good at building believable religions and conflicts with elaborate histories alluded to without indulging in unnecessary exposition.

There’s a lot of good world-building which flows naturally through the text. The action in the book is minimalist but plentiful with a single blow of the sword usually enough to kill whatever it hits. Life is savage and cheap in the setting without any magical healing or unusually swift recoveries. Despite this, the most distressing death in the story was a most unexpected character. There’s also a number of chaotic battle sequences where the results of the conflict are only determined after the final results.

There’s a few flaws in the book which I think would have made it better. As much as I love the characters, their names are extremely hard to pronounce and the book would have benefited from a guide at the beginning like Mark Lawrence’s Red Sister to consult. Maybe also a short description of who the various factions are and what they’re up to. I also think the book could have used some more descriptions.

George R.R. Martin wasted unnecessary pages on description but I found I wanted to know the symbols and appearance of characters better than done here. It seems so realized that it deserves it, even if it would expand the world significantly. Finally, I think the book jumped around a bit more and would have been better breaking up the character sections with chapters. Again, I seem to be recommending it be more like A Song of Ice and Fre but it’s a rare book that achieves that comparison.

The big appeal of the book is the “used universe” feel as this is the kind of planet where people actually live. There’s talk of brothels, food, random events, and plenty of people have normal jobs alongside the mercs as well as wizards. Indeed, my favorite par of the book was a short scene where the High General has to make sure his troops pay for the food they eat as well as brothels they frequent even if they get free lodging.

In conclusion, while not perfect, it’s a really detailed and interesting world, One I look forward to reading more of.

About Ulff Lehmann: German born but English writing author, Ulff Lehmann, was raised reading, almost any and everything, from the classic Greek to Roman to Germanic myths to more appropriate fiction for children his age. Initially devouring books in his native language, he switched to reading English books during a yearlong stay in the USA as a foreign exchange student.

In the years since, he has lost count of the books he has read, unwilling to dig into the depths of his collection. An avid fantasy reader, he grew dissatisfied with the constant lack of technological evolution in many a fantasy world, and finally, when push came to shove, he began to realize not only his potential as a story teller but also his vision of a mythical yet realistic world in which to settle the tale in he had been developing for 20 years.

Quantum Crystal by Rob Shackleford.

Is humanity evolving?

Today, millions suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury and Post-Traumatic Stress due to warfare, car accidents and violence.

In response to this global epidemic, pioneering medical researchers develop a new treatment that is seen to produce outstanding results. Dubbed the ‘Quantum Crystal’, the treatment is soon rolled out for many of the maladies that affect modern humanity.

But is this treatment all it is purported to be, or are deeper changes under way?

‘Quantum Crystal’ examines the efforts of victim support group, The Staff, to rollout the Quantum Crystal to a deeply divided humanity and the inevitable violent opposition to change.

Traveller Inceptio by Rob Shackleford
Traveller Series Book One

If you were sent 1000 years into the past, would you survive?

Traveller – Inceptio describes how the Transporter is accidentally invented and becomes public knowledge when it sends a subject 1000 years into the past.

A Special Forces team of Travellers is then selected and trained with the intent to send them to Saxon England to explore what could be a very dangerous period of history.

From the beaches of Australia to the forests of Saxon England, Traveller – Inceptio reveals how Travellers discover they need a lot more than technology to survive the trials of early Eleventh Century life.

Traveller Probo by Rob Shackleford
Traveller Series Book Two

Traveller Probo is the second book in the Traveller Series.

Would you survive if sent one-thousand years into the past?

Development of the Transporter saw highly trained researchers, called Travellers, successfully sent one-thousand years back in time to early medieval Saxon England.

Traveller Missions now means enormous national prestige and the recovery of priceless lost artefacts and knowledge, so nations vie for the use of the Transporter and more daring Traveller missions are planned. Politics and power soon come into play.

To study lost peoples and civilisations, Special Forces researchers have to be even better trained, equipped and prepared to put their lives on the line.

While Michael Hunter continues to build a life in Saxon England, the tragically injured Tony Osborne finds his resurgence in a mission to ancient Byzantine Turkey, a mission Professor Adrian Taylor joins to better outmanoeuvre his calculating academic colleagues.

From the misty shores of New Zealand to the shining splendour of the ancient Byzantine Empire, it is proved how sending modern researchers into the past carries enormous rewards and tragedies.

Traveller Manifesto by Rob Shackleford
Traveller Series Book Three

Traveller Manifesto is Book 3 of the Traveller Trilogy, the explosive final sequel to Traveller Inceptio and Traveller Probo.

To use the enigmatic Transporter and send Special Forces trained Researchers back a thousand years is now the biggest game in world politics.

But not only politics, as academics scramble to outdo each other and harness prestige in the increasingly influential field of History.

As Professor Taylor is rescued from Byzantine Rome, a heavily-armed US Traveller team explores Mississippian Cahokia to experience a situation beyond even their control. Michael Hunter and Tatae flee Giolgrave in the hope of finding safety from modern interference. But at a terrible cost.

And something seems to be happening in Israel, resulting in the creation of a high-profile investigation team to uncover if there is a clandestine Traveller mission operated by the US and Israel.

From the windswept mountains of Wales, to the hills of Cahokia and the dusty wadis of the Negev, researchers find that to visit the past may not necessarily provide the answers they seek.

Second Chances by Marsha Casper Cook

Warrington Legacy Book 2.

Leo and Gracie are back again, but their hearts have been broken by previous relationships and that’s keeping them apart. Even though their podcast, “It’s All About Love,” is successful, they can’t seem to take their own advice while others around them find love and happiness.

Can they forget the past and let love take its course or will they never allow themselves to be happy again?

Is the timing right this time or will they miss the boat?

What readers are saying about It’s All About Love, the first book in the Warrington Legacy series:

“Marsha Casper Cook’s romantic novels are always a pleasure to read. Her characters are so well developed and interesting.”

“I really enjoyed this book! Written by Marsha Casper Cook, an author that believes family is everything.”

“This would make for a wonderful made-for-television movie. I was so invested in these characters that I want to know what happens to them. “

“Leo is the man all men, and I suspect women too, can admire. He proves old-fashioned virtues have a place in modern society and it can’t help but make you feel good.

“This story is heartwarming and beautiful; I haven’t read such a lovely romantic story for a long time.”

“As a person who greatly enjoys reading romance stories, this book is definitely one of the most heartwarming stories I’ve ever read.”

To Life by Marsha Casper Cook

A Young Holocaust Survivor’s Journey to Freedom.

To Life by Marsha Casper Cook

This compelling Holocaust memoir is about Sala Lewis and her love of family.

Ten year old Sala Lewis had been out with friends and came home to find the apartment where she lived locked. The Nazis had taken her family and she was left to wander the streets of Poland alone. In an instant, she had gone from having everything to having nothing — no family, no clothes, no food, and at that moment in time, no future. Because she was strong willed and confident, she was able to make her way to find her sister, Dora, who had been taken to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.

Because Dora was older and knew what had to be done to stay alive in the concentration camp, she helped Sala adjust to following orders and the vigorous work required there. Dora had raised herself to a level where she oversaw three hundred young women. If everyone did as she said, the sisters remained safe. If the women misbehaved or tried to escape, Sala would be killed.

As they lived through these hardships, their sisterly bond grew stronger than it had ever been. Even after their liberation from the camp, their love and commitment to each other continued throughout their lives.

Sala and Dora had a strong belief in the American dream and the land of opportunity, and eventually made it to America. The proudest day of their lives was when they became United States citizens.

Ron Sewell’s Books

Abbey by Ron Sewell.

What would you think when told your father is dead? Abbey Lane hoped he had burnt in hell. Abbey’s connection with a lunatic hacker finds her mixed up in a game of global terror and intrigue.

William Haliwell is a wily veteran of law enforcement. Over time, he has gained the influence and social network to get the job done. His superiors believe he is past his sell by date and want him retired. Yet he must get to the heart of the problem but he knows that for every action there is a reaction.

Abbey presents Haliwell with a vital clue. His direct interference identifies a terrorist base, but what happens next is in the hands of MI6.

5 Stars: James Bond and Tom Clancy Move Over for William Haliwell!

If you love contemporary thrillers and dramas with British flair, this is definitely your next read. I was addicted from the very first page. Personally, as someone who was rejected by my biological father, main character Abbey Lane tugs at my heart strings. In the first page we learn that Abbey, a young Londoner, receives a letter from her legal guardian Mr. Gregory Peters. Abbey has a life altering decision to make quickly.

Author Ron Sewell is a skilled story teller, who weaves a spine-tingling drama filled with suspense, twists and turns, that involve cybercrime, so sophisticated, the world nuclear arsenals are in danger of being compromised.

Abbey, Tyler and Michael unwittingly get involved and become partners with Jacob. Jacob uses his personal computer to trade information on the dark-net and his digital portals knowledge to skim money from banks and other entities. Knowledge, power, and greed are formidable masters.

Commander Haliwell (veteran of law enforcement) works diligently to assess the threat levels and let those in power know the terrorist threats are not going to go away. Let me bring you into the story at Chapter Twenty-Three.

…..His desk  telephone  rang;  he  lifted  the  handset  and  said, “Haliwell.”

…..“Good morning, Commander. Kathy James.”

…..His mind raced as he recognised her name. “Long time no speak. Have you something on that damned laptop?”

…..“Yes and no. We found something you should know.”

…..He was silent for a moment. “About time. With the lack of information, I shelved the case.”

…..“We never stopped looking, Commander. From what we have recovered we know you need a trigger which activates the launch programme.”

…..“Okay, what is the trigger?”

…..“I don’t know. It could be anything. What I do know is without the trigger, we cannot stop it operating.”

…..“We must be able to do something.”

…..“You’d need to reconfigure every ICBM  launch programme.”

…..“I can’t see that happening when governments believe their systems are unhackable.”

…..“I’ll send you my report and then it’s on your desk.”

…..“Did you find anything else?”

…..“We recovered bits and pieces, but nothing that makes any sense. I’ll keep my people on the case, but I doubt if we’ll ever retrieve all the pieces of the jigsaw. The originator did a great job of contaminating the hard drive.”

Will the British authorities figure out how to stop an impending nuclear attack?

Accomplished Author Ron Sewell brings his realistic characters to life using police and military components that will keep you turning the page.

Irene Edwards Books

A Spooky Wish: A Magic Islands by Irene Edwards.

‘A Spooky Wish’ is book 1 in the ‘Magic Islands’ series.

Trevor is not known for being serious. In fact, he is best known for the tall tales he spins. He is new in Wales, living with his grandparents, and making friends has been easy. His personality is one that lends itself to laughter, jokes, and many a light-hearted moment between friends. When Trevor and his pals are exploring the beach one day, something happens that changes all of their lives, and Trevor’s love of a good joke is getting in the way of his ability to communicate with the adults around him. When no one believes what you say, how do you tell them your friends disappeared before your very eyes?

The wizards and witches in Edwards’s work transport readers to a fabulously designed land of spells, castles, and absurdly fantastic beings. Page after page, the dragons and monsters continue to keep the story new and refreshing. Combined with the witty exchanges between characters, the wide array of character types makes this an all-around fantastic read for young readers.

Book 2 – Chaos In The Cosmos
Book 3 – The Land Of Now And Then

5 Stars: Magical Read For Children 8-12 Years!

Prologue: ‘Magic Islands’ (Book One):Somewhere along the coast of Wales, there once existed a small group of islands.  They were mysterious islands, often believed to be magical islands. Some were mountainous and craggy, others only undulated from high to low levels, from hillside to valley.

…The islands had few visitors, for the journeys across the seas to these islands were often treacherous, the seas around them being moody and the pathways unclear.

…It is said many ships had vanished in the rough waters and never returned home to Wales. When ships returned homewards, their sailors refrained from venturing again to the islands for they feared the mighty waves and great anger of the choppy seas.

…Ancient mariners often returned telling mystical and magical tales of having spied from a distance a curious clan of magical dwellers on the islands.

…But there was never any proof of such tales.

…As time went by the islands faded and vanished and the tales of the magical islands were soon forgotten, seemingly forever…”

Forgotten until now! Author Irene Edward unlocks the mysteries of these fictitious Islands.

Let me quote from Part 11-‘A Call for Help’:

…“Come on, Megan, let’s become invisible.”

…“This Magical Enchanted Forest is the strangest of places,” Megan glanced through the trees as she spoke. Hundreds of cuckoos called out their cuckoo songs tunefully. The woodpeckers were hammering at branches with their sharp beaks.”

…”Rata-tat! Rata-tat! Rata-tat!”

…Above the children’s heads, hawks and eagles squawked eerily. But although the forest was oddly noisy, the children became alarmed by the trees, for they were not standing still and rooted, but were moving around in the forest, hovering and swaying, pushing and shoving, falling or rushing around in all directions.”

…“It would help us if the trees stayed in one place,” Stefan said nervously.  “How on earth can we keep away from the paths, when the paths keep moving around everywhere?”

My Thoughts: This is a fun read, where character Stefan and Megan make a wish on a Conch shell found on the Welsh coastline. Transported to the ‘Magic Islands’ by their wish, the story-line and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations come to life on the pages.

Never a dull moment as wizards, witches, elves, dragons, castles, and a magical enchanted forest fills the readers imagination.

Children eight to twelve will enjoy reading with an adult or alone. This book will make a great gift, bed-time story, library book, or a summer reading adventure.

The author’s desire to educate children and adults about the preservation of our planet shines through in her books. Irene provides educational guides, free worksheets for classroom and group discussions. (https://cgofwales.co.uk)

Chaos In The Cosmos: A Magic Islands Story (2) by Irene Edwards

‘Chaos In The Cosmos’ is book 2 in the ‘Magic Islands’ series.

The fun and games of the wicked Purple Wizards’ tricks and their wrong doings are taken too far, resulting in an urgency to save Planet Earth from disaster before time runs out for the planet.

The story illustrates the way nature can hit out when not heeded or respected, and it shows the impact climate change can have on our planet in extreme temperatures.

It sets the scene for young readers to learn and understand the effects of a warmer chaotic world, and aims at promoting such concepts through storytelling and adventure, thus exposing some of the global issues surrounding planetary warming, as narrated and visualized through the eyes of magic and fantasy.

Written with much lyrical fun in mind for children, there is, of course, some serious underlying elements… those of fostering climatic awareness, and the realisation our planet is very precious to us all.

‘Chaos in the Cosmos,’ is a fantasy narrative for children aged between 8 to 12 years.

5 Stars: Fun, Educational Action Adventure for Kids 8-12!

‘Chaos In The Cosmos’ (Magic Island Story) is book two in the ‘Magic Island’ series. In this wonderful learning adventure, Author Irene Edwards uses the fun and games of the Purple Wizard to bring children back to the ‘Magic Islands’. As we learned in book one ‘Magic Island’, somewhere along the coast of Wales, there once existed a small group of islands. They were mysterious islands, often believed to be magical islands.

Your child will enjoy the familiar characters Stefan and Megan, if he or she has read ‘Magic Islands’. Some of the chapter titles include ‘Hook Eyed Monsters’, ‘The Spacecraft’, ‘Landing on Mars’, ‘Morning on the Red Planet’, ‘Volcano Olympus Mons’, ‘Let’s Explore the Underworld’, ‘Domadron and the Cyclops’, ‘The Golden Puddle’, ‘Merlin’s Cave’, ‘The Red Wizards’ Tower’, ‘A Hiding Place’, and ‘Believe It or Not’ to name a few.

The Story Begins: ”The story begins when the “Magic” happens, and the Purple Wizards are sent spinning from the Magic Islands to the Red Planet, Mars, where they experience a Space adventure on the mystic planet and its hidden Underworld.

…In order to escape from the Underworld and from Planet Mars, Izzy Odorous and his gang of Purple Wizards are faced with having to regain their own powerful magical strengths. With newly regained powers, they mischievously venture out on a magical mystery tour and later threaten danger to the well-being of the entire Planet Earth.

…Scratchit is the much feared, adorable, baby Hook-Eyed Cyclops Monster, who creates havoc by way of his very own busy magical mischief, as he whisks the children, Stefan and Megan, on a terrifying journey to the Magic Islands.

…But when the children are confronted with the impending perils of global warming, they are also faced with having to help the magical inhabitants of the Magic Islands in  their fight for survival during a rapidly changing climatic crisis.

Let me bring you into the story here:

…“Cheer up,  Megan.  Let’s get away from these sand dunes and shelter somewhere cool, such as the caves,” Stefan said briskly.

…How could she feel cheerful? She stood up and trailed after Stefan as he headed for the caves at the Land of Rocks.

…“Do you think the caves will be a safe place for us?” Megan frowned. “They can’t be. Some of the rocks on the coast are tumbling into the sea?”

…“Perhaps they may be safe enough, but I’m not really sure. At least the caves will offer shelter from the sun.  I feel so cross with Scratchit today.  The silly little Cyclops has brought us here and dumped us on these islands,” Stefan mumbled in annoyance.

…“But, I’m seriously worried,  Stefan.” Megan sighed in despair, “What if…we really are alone on these Magic Islands, and there is no one here, to help magic us back to Wales? What if…there is no food for us to eat… or fresh water to drink, and we dehydrate?

…What if…the Magic Islands flood over?

…What if…?”

My Thoughts: Author Irene Edwards teaches children about planet earth and the cosmos in this fun, adventurous, action-adventure, using words and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations.

Children eight to twelve will enjoy reading with an adult or alone. This book will make a great gift, bed-time story, library book, or a summer reading adventure.

Annette Stanzione’s Books

Through My Laughter and Tears by Annette Stanzione.

Returning Home to the Bronx (A Memoir).

Annette Stanzione was born into a Catholic-Italian family in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx in the 1950s.

In ‘Through My Laughter and Tears’, Annette relays anecdotes from her childhood to her first job working for the FBI, becoming a paralegal at forty-seven, getting married and then divorced, raising two daughters, dating, living upstate for three decades, and then eventually returning home to the Bronx.

Annette’s story is an engaging mix of humor and gravitas as she wends her way through triumphs and difficulties. Although she’s still looking for love — and loving the process of finding it — she perseveres with charm, wit, and warmth.

You’ll be drawn into Annette’s world and wish she was your best friend.

5 Stars: Unstoppable Page Turner!

I felt like part of Annette’s Catholic-Italian family from the first paragraph. Whether you grew up in Bronx, New York or not, this is a coming home saga like no other. Author Annette Stanzione invites you to reflect back, with her, on growing up in the 1960s-1970s.

With superb storytelling, Annette uses, written images, more humor than pain, and a tremendous sense of “glass half full’ perseverance. Annette skillfully walks the reader through her own growing up, dating realities, marriage conflicts, and single motherhood. Annette’s story is real, raw and truly unforgettable.

As the first-born daughter, the tragic murders by Son of Sam impacted her already strict, Catholic School/Home upbringing. She rebelled in small ways, while keeping a firm foundation under her.

Soon Annette added a little adventure in her life. “Secretarial position-not a secret agent!”

“At seventeen, I started this job in Manhattan on 69th and 3rd Avenue, in the Hunter College building. I got all dolled up. When getting in the elevator I slipped in my platform heels (it was the seventies) and fell on the ground. Thank God no one was in the elevator. My arm hit the wall and my leg was under my butt. I was more concerned with making sure I didn’t break a nail and made sure all ten were intact. Hey, I knew my priorities.

About a year and a half later I transferred to the FBI in New Rochelle, which was in the Sheraton Hotel, at that time. No one knew the FBI was there, of course. It was not something they announced on the outside of the building.

One day they had a tip that the Barclays Bank across the street was going to be robbed. We watched the FBI agents from our office circle the bank and the three men got out of the car with ski masks on and went into the bank with guns.

The agents were in and out of the building and the gunmen came out with their hands in the air. It was like watching a movie, only live. The great thing about that job was, you could transfer anywhere, as long as they had a position open. One girl I worked with transferred to Alaska and never came back.

They say there are three men to every one woman in Alaska. Maybe that’s why she stayed.”

Annette has had her fair share of tragedy and tears. Through it all she has learned to appreciate family, friends, and acquaintances who encouraged and helped her along the way. She is grateful to her parents and grandparents. Like a good mother, Annette has passed the gift of empowerment on to her two daughters, who in turn are sharing it with others.

In a time when the world seems out of whack, obstacles and risks seem to outweigh the rewards, I highly recommend you read this inspiring book. This short read will leave you looking for ways to view your experiences through Annette’s “glass half full” mindset. We all have stories to tell and I hope Annette will share more in the years to come

A Valley To Die For (The Something To Die For Mysteries) by Radine Trees Nehring

Carrie McCrite and her husband, Amos, had dreamed of retiring to a home in the Ozark mountains. After Amos dies in a hunting accident, Carrie decides to go ahead with their dream, but alone. She needs to be someone – to prove she’s a capable woman who can take care of herself.

Carrie meets neighbor JoAnne Harrington, a man-hater who certainly provides an example of female independence. When a stone quarry threatens to turn part of their beloved valley into heaps of gravel, the two women and their neighbors’ band together to fight for their valley. But someone decides JoAnne must die.

Carrie feels compelled to find out who killed her friend. That’s what a strong woman would do. Then Carrie’s new neighbor, retired Kansas City Police Major, Henry King, warns her that she, and not JoAnne, may have been the killer’s real target.

But that’s ridiculous – isn’t it? And Henry is hiding secrets of his own.

How strong can Carrie be?

It’s time to find out.

From Library Journal: In the picturesque Ozark mountains, a local group of residents’ plan to fight the sale of an abandoned farm to a mining quarry known for caring more for money than potential damage to the environment. When widow Carrie McCrite discovers the body of the group’s leader, JoAnne Harrington, the valley is abuzz with theories that JoAnne was accidentally shot by hunters or murdered by the owner of the proposed quarry. For Carrie, whose husband died in a hunting accident and whose faith was the only thing that sustained her, JoAnne’s death resurrects old nightmares. The romantic interest of a retired detective named Henry King raises further questions as Carrie discovers ties between Henry and JoAnne that have been kept secret for almost 30 years. With flair, Nehring, an award-winning Arkansas writer, launches a cozy series that will appeal to mystery readers and fans of Lorie Ham (The Trouble with Tenors) and Ellen Edwards Kennedy (Irregardless of Murder). For both Christian fiction and mystery collections.Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.

It’s October, craft fair season in the Ozarks, and Carrie and Henry are helping their friend Shirley sell her quilts and Baby Cuddlys at the War Eagle Craft Fair. After a mysterious cousin with ties to drug dealers appears, danger stalks the fair.

Music To Die For (Something To Die for Mysteries) (Volume 2) by Radine Trees Nehring

MUSIC TO DIE FOR is set at Ozark Folk Center State Park in remote Stone County, AR. Carrie and several friends have planned a weekend vacation at the Folk Center, where they’re signed up for craft classes. Crafts take a back seat to a kidnapping, arson, and murder after Dulcey Mason, four-year old daughter of famous country musicians Chase Mason and Tracy Teal, disappears, and her abductor is found stabbed, his house burned. Romance blossoms again between Carrie and her best friend, Henry King, as they rush to save a child, solve a murder, and repair tragically broken lives. Can they do it before they, too, become victims of MUSIC TO DIE FOR?

A Portrait To Die For by Radine Trees Nehring

Carrie McCrite, a volunteer librarian at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, discovers two versions of a portrait on loan to the museum. When a reporter writing about that portrait disappears, Carrie must choose between honoring Henry’s request that she stop jumping into danger on behalf of people in trouble–or work to find the woman who was a college friend of her son’s.

Review by Betty Webb, Mystery Scene Magazine: “A Portrait to Die For isn’t for the shoot-’em-up, car-crash, shove-someone-off-a-cliff crowd. It is a sedate, carefully paced mystery more concerned with puzzles than thrills. Carrie’s quest leads her into some of the murkier paths of the art world, one filled with the kind of chicanery that could lead to some serious prison time for those involved.”

Review by Sandra Murphy, Kings River Life Magazine-Full Review: “It looks like no matter what Henry and Carrie decide, murder will find them. It’s a lucky thing for readers because they are a captivating couple, older than most characters, fun to be around, and lead interesting lives. They’ll even share a few recipes with readers.”

Dear Earth: A Love Letter From Spring Hollow by Radine Trees Nehring

It was to be just a weekend retreat, the cabin Radine Trees Nehring and her husband, John, built with their own hands on the land they bought in the Arkansas Ozarks. All they wanted was a once-a-week refuge from the stress and trials of life in the big city one hundred miles away. But the air, the forest, and the wildlife in the place they named Spring Hollow had a haunting magic they could never quite leave behind when they drove away every Sunday evening. The more they learned about the secrets of nature in their country hideaway, the more reluctant they became to part from it. At last, they realized that their hearts were always in Spring Hollow, and that was where they belonged too. They gave up their secure jobs to devote themselves full-time to tending and preserving the beautiful but fast-receding natural world they had come to cherish.

From The Author: My husband and I lived the experiences noted in this book and several of the chapters were originally published in magazines and newspapers in the United States and other countries.  This continues to be the book of my heart and, though my husband and I have recently relocated from Spring Hollow to a condo in Fayetteville, AR, the new owners and their children continue the legacy and love of the area!

From Booklist: Thoreau thought it was fine to build castles in the air as long as we put foundations under them. Radine Nehring has done exactly that. She presently holds court on a granite thinking bench as self-appointed queen of Spring Hollow. In 1978, she and husband John realized their weekends in the Arkansas Ozarks were more real than their “real” lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma. So, the two lifelong dreamers purchased 12 acres in a dogwood-filled hollow and began a decade of double lives. They cleared a space, put up a cabin, installed a wood stove, dug a well, and became gentle landholders. Each weekend, they drove two hours to escape to a private Eden. There, like a veritable Adam and Eve of the Ozarks, they sought to understand why they love the land. There they learned the irony of spending weekdays busy as squirrels and weekends watching squirrels busier than they. In 1988, the Nehrings moved permanently to Spring Hollow where now John builds furniture while Radine builds books. This one is written in a clear, warm voice by a writer and environmentalist who unabashedly loves her husband, her land, and her granite bench. Read it and dream. Patricia Hassler.

Book Review: Many dream of leaving urban areas for the country, but can’t make the transition. Radine and her husband built a cabin in the Arkansas Ozarks which was to serve as a weekend retreat: it quickly became more, luring them to quit secure jobs in favor of a country life. This compelling story traces their transitional experiences, presenting an endearing account. Midwest Book Review.

Meet The Author: Multi-published author RADINE TREES NEHRING and husband John moved from Tulsa, Oklahoma, to rural northwest Arkansas in 1988 after spending weekends on their Arkansas land for ten years. Radine began writing a series of articles, essays, and stories about the Arkansas Ozarks shortly after she and John bought their land, and these found interested readers around the globe. Many were collected in her first book, DEAR EARTH: A Love Letter from Spring Hollow, initially published in New York in 1995. When asked which of her books is her favorite, DEAR EARTH is the one Radine names. It is still available in print, has been published in Chinese, and also sells well in e-book form.

Radine says all of her writing expresses her love for the Ozarks and when she began writing her “To Die For” traditional mystery series in 2000, Ozarks tourist destinations were natural settings for her.

“I enjoy writing about what I love and sharing these places with readers everywhere. Both they and I experience my chosen destinations as the story unfolds.”

During her writing career, Radine also wrote and hosted a radio program, “Arkansas Corner Community News,” for ten years. The program, as well as all her other writing, featured unique people, places and events in the area.

She has received many regional and national awards, including a National Silver Falchion for mystery writing and the Governor’s Award for the best writing about Arkansas. Radine was the 2011 inductee into the Arkansas Writers’ Hall of Fame.

Her newest release “Solving Peculiar Crimes” is a short story anthology featuring Carrie, Henry and their friends.

Ed Duncan’s Books

About The “Pigeon-Blood Red” Trilogy: Each installment in this edge-of-the-seat trilogy depicts a different violent encounter between two men from different sides of the tracks, Paul Elliott, a black lawyer, and Richard “Rico” Sanders, a killer with a conscience.  The two men seemingly have nothing in common but each secretly harbors a grudging admiration for the other.

The plots of the three novels serve as devices to bring the men together in ways neither could have anticipated, obliging them to join forces in an uneasy alliance against a common foe.

In Pigeon-Blood Red a loan shark tasks Rico with recovering a priceless “pigeon-blood red” ruby necklace and at the same time sending a message to the thieves.  Trouble is, the neckless falls into the hands of Paul’s girlfriend Evelyn, and Rico mistakenly believes she is one of the thieves.

In The Last Straw Paul and Evelyn shelter a teenage girl, a witness to a carjacking gone bad, from a hit man dispatched by a crime boss with no apparent motive.  There is bad blood between Rico and the hit man, who, believing Paul and Rico to be friends, sets out to eliminate both of them.

In Rico Stays, after Rico is grievously wounded in a gun battle, his girlfriend Jean convinces Paul to let him hide out in Paul’s cabin while he recuperates.  Using Jean as bait, gunmen seeking revenge come for Rico.  The question becomes whether he will face them alone or with help from Paul.

Pigeon-Blood Red by Ed Duncan.

Pigeon-Blood Red Book 1.

For underworld enforcer Richard “Rico” Sanders, it seemed like an ordinary job: retrieve his gangster boss’s stolen goods, and teach the person responsible a lesson.

But the chase quickly goes sideways and takes Rico from the mean streets of Chicago to sunny Honolulu. There, the hardened hit man finds himself in uncharted territory, when innocent bystanders are accidentally embroiled in a crime.

As Rico pursues his new targets, hunter and prey develop an unlikely respect for one another.

Soon, he is faced with a momentous decision: follow his orders to kill the very people who have won his admiration, or refuse and endanger the life of the woman he loves?

★★★★★ “Duncan crafts a twisted thriller in his gangster-laced debut.”

★★★★★ “This charming, classically-told crime thriller is a must for noir fans.”

★★★★★ “I would love to see this book made into a movie.”

RECOMMENDED by the US Review: “Duncan crafts a twisted thriller in his gangster-laced debut. The first in a trilogy, Duncan’s three-part plot is replete with a handful of colorful characters, many of which are dissimilar to a genre of this type. Additionally, Duncan’s style of storytelling is a product of strong cast development, plot fillers, engaging dialogue, and shifting character scenes… enough twists and turns as well as cliff-hanging chapters to keep his audience not only hooked until the end but also anticipating the next work in his series.”

The Last Straw by Ed Duncan
Pigeon-Blood Red Book 2

When a teenage girl witnesses a carjacking gone bad, she is marked for death by a crime boss.

A lawyer and an enforcer forge an uneasy alliance to protect the girl from a hit man with an agenda of his own. Soon after, Paul Elliott – lawyer and close friend of the witness’s family – begins counseling them and becomes entangled in the murder plot.

As the long-simmering feud between Rico – the white enforcer – and the hit-man John D’Angelo reaches boiling point, bodies start to pile up in rapid succession… and old scores will be settled.

5 Stars, Red City Review: “With danger looming in every chapter, The Last Straw is an action-packed and nerve-racking read. Duncan skillfully draws the reader into a complex web of characters… A few key twists within the story-line keep the reader intrigued in this fast-paced thriller…The Last Straw is an outstanding crime thriller…

Review by Crime Thriller Hound: “This Chicago set thriller is a pacy read, written with an edge and style… For me, this is even better than the first in the Pigeon-Blood Red series and it does work well as a stand-alone… Ed Duncan’s series will sweep up fans as it goes along.”

Review by The US Review: “Contract killers seem like such affable chaps. Sure, there are the homicidal psychopaths that bring down the profession, but among them, if fiction is any indication, walk a community of upstanding, morally sturdy gentlemen who may commit murder for hire but who uphold ethical standards and airtight loyalties that make them handy guys to know in a pinch. Rico is this kind of guy. Sure, he kills for cash, but he has lines he won’t cross. When asked to take out the teenage witness to a crime, the ride with Rico begins. He declines the job, his rival volunteers, and into the fray explodes an onslaught of alliances, vendettas, collateral damage, and no small amount of spilled blood. In the margins, race and gender hover thoughtfully, suggesting they matter yet not stealing the show away from Rico and the action. Why is it so much fun to hang with crooks like Rico? As his prostitute girlfriend learns in the opening scenes when he avenges her from a violent john, characters like Rico live in their own separate universes where they define and mete justice. They defend those they love and accommodate the extremes their situations require. They can handle themselves in a physical showdown, they shoot to kill, and they walk away from fights victorious. Knowing that and living vicariously through either Rico or the loved one Rico is protecting is an entertaining fantasy. That temporary taste of aggressive amorality is heady stuff, and the body count is conveniently forgotten with the turn of each page. Like so many crime thrillers, Rico is a fun, fast pop through an imaginary world of tough guys, lamenting ladies, and a world-weary anti-hero. He may be a killer, but he’s one of the good ones.”

Midwest Book Review: “Realistic characters, suspenseful action, twists and turns that prove satisfyingly unpredictable, and an attention to creating full-faceted characters (whether they be women or men, victims or investigators, or hit-men) lends to an absorbing read highly recommended for those who like their thrillers complex and their characters fully developed.”

Rico Stays by Ed Duncan
Pigeon-Blood Red Book 3

After enforcer Richard “Rico” Sanders stepped in to protect his girlfriend from a local mob boss’s hot-headed nephew, all hell broke loose.

When the smoke cleared, the nephew had vanished and three goons lay dying where they’d stood. Fighting for his life, Rico was alive but gravely wounded.

Out of the hospital but not fully recovered, he needed a place to crash – a place where he wouldn’t be found. A place like the cabin owned by lawyer Paul Elliott, whose life Rico had saved more than once.

Trouble was, Paul’s girlfriend hadn’t forgotten Rico’s dark history – or Paul’s fascination with him. Vengeful killers would soon be coming for him.

The only question was whether he would be ready to face them.

Reader Editor-5.0 out of 5 Stars:  Keep Your Friends Close and Your Enemies Closer. Rico Stays, is the third story in Ed Duncan’s Pigeon Blood Red series, although it is also a stand-alone story as well. The plot continues with the life of Rico, a hit-man who is cold-blooded but astute and smart. He’s as exact as you can imagine of a killer at the top of his game. To protect Jean, his girlfriend and confidant, Rico has killed again as in the previous stories. Then there is always another crime boss ready to come onto the scene. Gus Chakiras is next. He seems to sympathize somewhat with Rico’s plight.

Rico is being pursued by Larry Cosgrove, a young psychotic wanna-be dirt bag who just happens to be Gus’s nephew. Rico prevented Larry from harming a teen who colliding with him accidentally in a parking lot. So, can the tired, retiring crime boss Gus convince Larry to let go of the excitement of retaliation and grow a set? Gus knows his nephew is out to kill Rico or Jean. But who does he kill instead?

Paul Elliott, who appears in the previous stories, is a razor-sharp attorney who harbors an attraction to Rico’s lifestyle. He’s even bought a blue shoulder holster like Rico uses. Paul has only recently started carrying. Our author slowly reveals the inner workings of Paul’s mind and this takes much talent to accomplish, but we see Paul changing. Ultimately, Paul helps Rico stay hidden while he heals from the near-death shooting in the parking lot. Paul can’t do enough for Rico, who previously saved his life at least twice. If Rico, a loner, could trust anyone to cover him, it would be Paul. Paul would have an opportunity to prove himself. But would he jeopardize his accomplished law career to protect a hit-man? There are plenty of tight situations, especially as a crazed Larry brings his incredible schemes to life.

This story continues the series with nail-biting action without let up. If you like fast-paced thrillers, read Duncan’s books. They leave me breathless.

James Amps-5.0 out of 5 Stars: One of the best crime books I have read. Great job on pulling these characters together. Anyone that wants to be in suspense and not put this book down needs to read this One of the best crime books on the market. Great read. Could not put it down once I started. Great job.

Eva Duncan-5.0 out of 5 Stars: Satisfied Customer.

JennlyT-5.0 out of 5 Stars: A debt repaid; a friendship made. Full disclosure, I was provided with a copy of this book by the author or their representative, however, I have voluntarily chosen to write a review. All opinions are my own.

Chicago enforcer Richard “Rico” Sanders just wants to listen to the ball game in peace, but when he gets called to drive his girlfriend and her geriatric friend home from the supermarket his peaceful afternoon turns into a shootout in the parking lot and a stay at the hospital. With a bum leg and the brother of one of his victims hot on his trail with revenge on his mind, Rico finds himself in an all too familiar situation. But he is not one to hide from his enemies, and it is only due to Jean’s quick thinking that Rico agrees to lay low for a few days at a cabin of a “mutual friend”. Rico’s convalescence, however, is short-lived when the bad guys start to play dirty. Against his better judgment, Rico forms an alliance with an unlikely partner to put an end to their games. But will this uncanny pairing be the start of a beautiful friendship or the beginning of the end for more than just Rico and Jean?

Rico Stays is the final book in the Pigeon Blood Red trilogy by author Ed Duncan. Set sometime after the close of The Last Straw, Rico, Jean, Paul, and Evelyn have returned to what passes for their normal everyday lives. Little do they know that their paths will cross one more time but with the tables turned in an incredibly unique way. As Rico and Jean try to stay below the radar and not become the target of a grieving brother, Paul steps up to the plate as an unlikely benefactor. Hiding Rico and Jean at his cabin in the woods is brilliant, but not without consequences as Paul finds himself defending his actions to more than just a flabbergasted Evelyn. In this final installment, the action is fast-paced, the tension is high and the ending, for me at least, was oh so satisfying.

After initially not being a fan of Pigeon Blood Red, I stuck with the series and I was rewarded with witnessing the beginnings of what I hope in Rico’s world will be a lifelong friendship between the four main characters who started not just as “enemies” but as a target, then evolved into a debt to be repaid and an eventual partnership. This concept itself is so foreign that it is endearing. Watching Jean and Evelyn warm up to each other was heartwarming and proves that no matter what your race, profession, upbringing, or social status that friendship can be achieved if an effort is made. While this marks the end of the trilogy, I cannot help but long for a one-off short here and there to check in with Rico and the gang to see how they’re doing. I cannot help but be curious to see how their budding friendship is cultivated and developed. Also, I would be lying if I did not say that I am curious to see if the influences on the other couples are for the better, the worse, or maybe a little of both. Honestly, I am hoping for a little bit of both!

The one who reads the book and the one who hears the narrative will both benefit from the telling.
