Special Two Book Collection For Ages MG/PT/10+ by Janice Spina

How Far Is Heaven by Janice (J. E.) Spina.

Parker and Priscilla Wilfork are happily married with two children. Life seemed perfect and peaceful until Parker goes on a business trip and does not return. Priscilla finds her world turned upside down when she searches for answers to how and why Parker disappeared.

One-night Priscilla has a dream that Parker is an angel. Does this mean that Parker is now dead? After two years and no sign of Parker except in her dreams, Priscilla makes the decision to tell her children that their father has gone to Heaven.

Priscilla tries to get their lives back together until one day Deanna disappears too. Now Priscilla must go on a quest to find her daughter before it’s too late. She fears her daughter’s disappearance might be connected in some way to her husband’s. Can Priscilla go on with her life if she loses Deanna too?

With the help of a handsome police Sergeant, Blake Furelli, they work together to try to find Deanna and solve the mystery behind Parker’s disappearance. During this trying time, Blake, who suffered a loss of his own, feels drawn to the ethereal beauty of Priscilla.

A Satisfying Read! July 28, 2016. The ever-talented Janice Spina does it again. Like in her other books, whether written for young children, teens or adults, “How Far is Heaven” hits the mark. You’ll find it all in this entertaining book; suspense, emotions, good values, and a satisfying ending that fills you with anticipation for Spina’s next creation. Highly recommended.

Stunning Portrayal of a Father’s Love and Protection For His Child Even After Death June 14, 2016. I absolutely loved this story! I even read it twice. It started with a hook and kept me intrigued the whole way through. I really liked the plot, the romance, the danger, and the ending. There was no dragging. It took me a minute to get all of the nasty boys’ names placed with who and what they were doing, but I just had to back up and re-read it to figure it out. There is a lot of action taking place in this book, and I didn’t want to put it down. Get your copy today!

From The Author: This book was written in 2009 and came to me in a dream. I had to write it down before it was lost. I had many other books to publish at that time so I put this book on the back burner until I could edit it. I felt it was time to publish now. Hope readers will enjoy it.

An Angel Among Us by Janice (J. E.) Spina

A Short Story Collection.

A collection of short stories that covers several genres including romance, grief/loss, mystery, suspense, sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal.

This book is dedicated to a courageous friend who passed this year.

The first story is specially created for her and is the inspiration for the title of this book.

Review By Sarah Reviews: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Fabulous! Author Janice Spina is a prolific and eclectic writer, whose creativity knows no bounds and whose books entertain readers of all age groups. Having had the pleasure of reading many of Author Spina’s earlier works, I looked forward to reading her newest creation and am happy to report that her first-ever short story compilation is ever so gratifying. “An Angel Among Us” is fabulous. The characters that populate the short stories are from all walks of life, real and well-developed. Their touching stories resonate, as the protagonists confront and face up to life’s many challenges. Loss, regret, love and hope are ingredients you’ll find in abundance in this stirring and heart-string tugging book. Highly recommended!

Review By Michele Rolfe: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Wonderful Collection of Short Stories. The stories are tear jerkers & thought provoking. Very well written & hard to put down! I got caught up in the characters & felt like I was a part of their world. I was gifted a book in return for my honest review.

From The Author: I began these short stories about six months ago. They were going to be a collection of holiday and seasonal stories. This all changed when I connected on FB with my high school friend, Anne Gillis Benedetto. We had been following one another there since 2015.

Anne mentioned on her FB page that she had lost her husband. She was in profound torment over his loss. I followed her notes and added my condolences as did many others. We chatted back and forth and she reminded me of the last time we had been together at our fifth high school reunion. We spent the time reminiscing over how much fun we had with many laughs.

In one of her later posts she announced that she had breast cancer with only months to live. This horrific news was devastating not only to me but to many of her close friends in Florida and around the country. I wrote a short story about her and her beloved husband and sent it to her asap. In my letter I told her I wanted to dedicate this book to her.  She wrote a lovely letter of gratitude back to me.  Unfortunately she died before I could present this book to her.

Anyone who knew Anne loved her. She was an incredibly beautiful person inside and out. She had a kind heart and did for others up until the time she passed on January 3, 2017. I pray she is smiling down on this book now. I want this book to keep Anne’s memory alive for all who knew her and introduce her to those who didn’t. Blessings & love to you, Anne!
