A Little Murder (Angie Deacon Mysteries Book One) by Cindy Davis

When ER nurse Angie Deacon buys a day of fishing on NH’s Lake Winnipesaukee for her husband’s fiftieth birthday, she has no idea they’ll wind up suspects in the boat owner’s death. Besides his wife Valerie, why would any of the five strangers on board want gruff, insensitive Nolan Little dead?

None of them knew her before today. Or did they?

As police storm the boat, Angie comforts the distraught widow, who quickly becomes the chief suspect. She was seen having an altercation with him earlier that day.

But then…so did handsome Jamaican Montez Clarke, who by day is a computer geek. He even went so far as to pop Nolan in the nose.

Valerie begs Angie to help find the killer. If she refuses, Val swears she’ll ask Montez’s friend Sonny who is a bit on the shady side.

Will Angie regret her decision to aid Valerie once she learns the woman’s dark secret?

Why did Sonny bring two duffel bags aboard? They don’t appear to contain fishing gear. First, they’re at the bow of the boat, then they are gone…And Sonny won’t talk about them.

Untruths aren’t the only cause for alarm as the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, leaving Angie wondering just exactly how her husband fit into the deadly equation…and if she is next on the killer’s list.

Jarvis loses a bet with fellow officers, and the payoff is, he’s got to try out for a part in the play.

He is rewarded with the part of co-star–coincidentally, or maybe not, he’ll be playing the part of a burglar

Things ​go well…until opening night when​ burglar ​Jarvis shoots the leading man.

Who substituted Jarvis’s real gun for the prop gun?

How did they get it from his sock drawer?

He ​bends under ​the tight scrutiny. ​But doesn’t break.

Why would anyone want the star dead?

By day John is an unassuming nursery owner. Could his murder have anything to do with the fact that he’s trying to breed an as-yet-undiscovered red iris?

Angie helps dig into the clues to help new love interest Jarvis, but suddenly her clingy needy mom is in town.

Maybe it’s a good thing Jarvis’s long-lost father has returned. He makes a good diversion for Mom.

Can Angie and Jarvis find the real killer before he’s ousted from the force? Before Angie’s theater is closed down before the first performance? Before their parents drive them crazy?

Rest In Pieces (Angie Deacon Mysteries Book Five) by Cindy Davis

The murder of a popular eighteen-year-old girl devastates residents of the tight-knit communities surrounding NH’s Lake Winnipesaukee.

When the jury sets the accused man free, it shakes people to their very core. Detective Colby Jarvis blames himself—the witnesses were ineffective; his testimony was weak, the clues inadequate.

The next morning, jigsaw puzzles begin arriving in mailboxes belonging to people related to the trial.

Twelve hours later, deaths begin.

Angie tries to help Jarvis in the case, but she’s mired in her own set of problems.

Her partner Tyson has just been offered his lifelong dream—a part in a Broadway show. She faces running the theater on her own, perhaps forever.

But that’s not the worst of it.

Her demanding mother is back in town, and she’s brought her a boy-toy—a twenty-something statue of Adonis come to life—who decides that he too wants to be a detective.

The puzzle pieces to seemingly random people continue to arrive.

Do they tell a secret someone is desperate to protect? Were they sent by the accused man recently released from custody? Or someone with an as yet unknown motive?

No Stone Unturned (Angie Deacon Mysteries Book Six) by Cindy Davis

Angie Deacon’s partner has gone to Broadway to follow his dream, and she’s left alone to produce Prince & Pauper’s first play of the new year.

Proudly she narrows the group of leading-man applicants to pharmaceuticals salesman Stone Powers. His six-pack abs and charisma have the female cast practically swooning.

Stone accepts the attention with cool professionalism, even as wives pop up like dandelions in a field.

When he arrives drunk at the theater two days in a row, Angie isn’t surprised; keeping three wives from learning of each other could drive anyone to drink.

The next day, the local convenience store phones in a domestic dispute.

The last thing Jarvis expects is to find Stone dead on the floor.

He suddenly finds himself overwhelmed with suspects of the female persuasion.

Did one of them do the unthinkable? Can he keep them from killing each other while he untangles the deluge of clues?

Smith and Westen Cozy Mystery Series by Cindy Davis

On The Hook (Smith and Westen Mysteries Book One) by Cindy Davis

A Picasso painting, worth a hundred million dollars, disappears en route from Chicago to New Hampshire. Literally-en route. The painting goes missing while the truck is moving. The painting is there, then it’s not. It’s gone, but it can’t be. Kendra Jean Valentine, underwriting agent for the policy, is on the hook. She scrapes together enough to hire two women to work the case.

Westen Hughes owns a failing pet shop. With creditors phoning daily, she jumps at the chance to earn a bundle of easy money, even though the offer comes from her old nemesis KJ Valentine, who stole everything in high school: head cheerleader, homecoming queen and the star quarterback. KJ pairs her with Westen’s total opposite: Phoebe Smith, a snake-loving, underwear-hating, tuba player with more baggage than Logan Airport.

Ten percent of a hundred million is…well, it’s a lot so Smith and Westen join forces on a roller coaster ride to find one of the world’s most valuable paintings.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Transporting hundred million-dollar valuables by vehicle presents many challenges as Kendra Jean Valentine, agent for NH Property and Casualty Insurance well knows. Her job requires that she covers all bases. This job was no different from the others. She chose the trucking company, interviewed the two truck drivers and handpicked four security guards to drive in two separate vehicles, one in front and one behind the truck to assist her in driving from Chicago to Buffalo and then non-stop from Buffalo to Concord, New Hampshire.

Arriving at their destination Kendra is relieved to arrive and more than happy to turn Picasso’s The Old Guitarist painting over to the curator, Henderson McGee. The painting was secured and padlocked in a six-foot cube wooden crate. Only Kendra and the curator in Chicago had the keys. When the crate in opened the painting is not inside and Kendra is on the hook. Her exact thought “How was it possible for so many things to go wrong for one person at the same time? She must’ve done something really awful in a past life.”

With strong characters and good dialog, the reader is submerged into a fast-paced mystery that is led by two untrained, inexperienced and incompatible women named Smith and Weston. Out of their league these two sleuths find themselves in many situations. I quote one from page # 103 in my copy.

“Smith and Westen started up the walk side-by-side. Westen twisted the antique glass doorknob and they went in, footsteps thudding on the bare hardwood floor, stained by at least fifty years of shoes and boots. The place smelled like a combination of pine cleaner which obviously hadn’t been used in the hallway and vanilla scented candle. They climbed the steep stairs. Westen tried not to touch the railing. She hadn’t brought any hand sanitizer.”

Well written mystery by Author Cindy Davis that will keep you guessing until the end.

I endorse On The Hook (Volume 1) in the Smith and Westen Mysteries. After you read On The Hook, Just Smashing (Volume 2) and Two Million Reasons (Volume 3) are waiting for you to solve. I reviewed this book from a Kindle/PDF format and the review was completed on September 29, 2015.

Just Smashing (Smith and Westen Mysteries Book Two) by Cindy Davis

New England’s most mismatched investigative team is on the trail of an Egyptian vase worth $1.75 million.

The ink is barely dry on snake-lover Phoebe Smith and Susie Homemaker Westen Hughes’ licenses. Their bank accounts are bursting from their previous windfall, yet they’re anxious to get back to work. Then the call comes.

During the unveiling of a local college’s exhibit, the vase disappeared in front of seven people.

Well, six people and the thief, because sure as shortcake has strawberries, the vase is there one minute, the gone the next.

Secrets rather than clues cause more trouble than fifty Dennis the Menaces.

The mega-rich Enrique Vargas’ money is rumored to have come from smuggling artifacts. His paramour-de-month is model-thin Fiona Frost; the only job she ever had was a prostitute. Then there is Donald Abbott, dealer in ancient weapons, particularly Egyptian ones. The always-smiling Sophie Oliver has no visible means of support.

How did the theft happen right under the nose of the security guard?

Dana Thornton is head of the exhibit’s security, a job that could grow to include the whole campus if he plays his cards right. Or can come up with enough money for the equipment.

Smith and Westen not only dodge threats and physical attacks by the suspects…

But need to stay one step ahead of KJ, who’s determined to find the vase and cash in on the 10% finder’s fee.

Two Million Reasons (Smith and Westen Mysteries Book Three) by Cindy Davis

Magician Gabe Heinz has two million reasons to disappear.

He is in the middle of his vanishing act when he does just that—vanish before a sell-out crowd—along with two million in securities from the bank where he’s vice president. His daughter is distraught—and a prime suspect—not just by the FBI, but by her nagging shrew of a mother.

Insurance recovery team Smith and Westen are up to their ears in movers determined to demolish every stick of furniture in their new home.

It’s almost a relief when a recovery job takes them to Los Angeles.

Hunky bodyguard Ryan Ames is supposed to meet them at LAX.

Instead, a gun-wielding lunkhead with a fondness for roughing up women escorts them to a mobster who claims they now work for him.

They can protect Vicki—but from the cops, or her mother?

When they locate the securities—and they’d better, or else—can they keep them from the mobster?

Final Masquerade by Cindy Davis

Paige Carmichael must’ve had a premonition that her life was about to take a turn for the worse.

One of the books she’d just finished reading was How to Change your Identity and Hide from Anyone. That was when she saw her fiancé murder his best friend and associate. And call in one of his flunkies to remove the body. This wasn’t what she signed up for when she agreed to marry Stefano Santangelo.

She isn’t about to leave the four-year relationship without something to show for it.

Paige takes one of his precious antique coins and $750K from his safe, and runs. She changes her hair, her walk, the kinds of foods she eats.

Then one day she meets Christian Charles Beauchamps

He’s driving a truck to make money to open a landscaping business. He’s handsome and charming, and eventually convinces her to confide in him.

Chris falls for her—or so he says.

But when she sees him whispering to a suspicious bearded guy, she takes off again. Can Paige finally escape Stefano’s grasp and have a normal life?

The Present: Learning To Live Life Consciously by Cindy Davis

Many people in my over-55 community are, to quote one of my neighbors, “Waiting to go.”

Actually, they called Florida “God’s waiting room.” What! Is that what really happens? I asked around and found out it was.

After some thought, I realized I had been too.

This book is about how my life changed when I learned to “live life consciously.”

Because, at the age of sixty-two, I learned I didn’t need to lie down and wait for the end to come. It was my choice to go forward…or not.

So, I went forward…and joined a dating site.

And met someone who changed everything.

Realize please, this isn’t a dating book. It’s how, through interactions with Rick, spiritual books, and journeys to places like Cassadaga, Florida, I learned about self-healing, and that I could literally change my thoughts, to be a more positive and empowering person.

That with those changes, life took an entirely new path.

How easily things come to you when you learn to let go.

On our honeymoon, we visited Mexico’s Yucatan villages.

And learned that in another life, I just might have been a Mayan.

Solving The Mystery Of Online Dating: Finding Love and Relationships While Avoiding Scammers by Rick and Cindy Palmacci (Davis)

Almost everyone will find themselves back in the dating world at some point.

Whether married and divorced, whether widowed or ending a long-term relationship—and it doesn’t matter the age—almost everyone will find themselves back in the dating world at some point. The idea of returning to the dating scene is frightening enough to keep some people from trying at all. The reasons are many: what family might think, the fear of getting hurt, being set in our ways, and the one we’ve heard most of all from older people—not letting someone see what time has done to their body.

Online dating is gaining in popularity.

It’s increased three-fold in popularity through the years. Years ago, internet dating sites were called impersonal and a place for losers, but it’s important to remember, the impersonal-ness is gone after that first meeting. Dating sites are merely a place to meet a larger, more diversified number of the opposite sex.

The New York Daily News stated that in a poll of 19,000 people married between 2005-2012, one third met on a dating site.

Consumer Reports, in 2017:

44% of respondents to their poll said online dating led to a serious long-term relationship

Identify Scammers and Internet Trolls.

This book contains an entire chapter on identifying and avoiding the scam artists that patrol our world.

Learn to write your profile so it catches attention.

Special instructions on how to make your profile pop, which photos to use, and how to weed through the available profiles.

Learn the step-by-step method of contact.

So, you are safe at all times, beginning with simple, low-stress coffee dates.

Learn how to follow through and what to do if you fail.

And how not to settle for second best.

The authors met on a dating site.

No, it didn’t happen overnight—for Rick the journey was years; for Cindy six months. In this book, they provide both the male and female perspectives to help others successfully navigate the world of online dating. To avoid the scammers. To become one of the success stories.

If You Fall Off The Horse…Dating After Divorce by Rick and Cindy Palmacci (Davis)

Okay, so the divorce is final.

You’re ready to get back to life. To the dating world. But you haven’t dated since Reagan was president and you have no idea how to begin.

This book is a step-by-step guide on how-to date again.

It begins with erasing the fear that keeps you from moving forward. Then continues with chapters on navigating bar scenes, acting quickly on chance meetings, or establishing a relationship with someone you already know. And finally, there’s a chapter on online dating.

The authors use their humorous back and forth style to give their perspectives on the dating world.

Fresh from the dating scene, Rick and Cindy’s experiences can often be used as examples of what NOT to do when looking for a mate, or just a long-term friend.

How I Lost A Thousand Pounds: Eating My Way To Better Health by Rick and Cindy Palmacci (Davis)

The diet industry is one of the biggest in today’s American economy

All that said, How I Lost a Thousand Pounds Eating My Way to Better Health is not your typical diet book. It is my personal journey, my many years of battling obesity, and how, during the trip, I lost well over a thousand pounds—up and down, up and down.

Let’s face it folks, dieting has become a national pastime, just like baseball

Sound familiar? Finally, I found success. I lost over one hundred pounds and, with the knowledge I’ve developed about eating, it will stay off. Hopefully, my story about all the different methods I tried over the years will help you move to the downward side of the hill.

“Boston Medical Center indicates that approximately 45 million Americans diet each year and spend $33 billion on weight lost products.”

The world is in a perpetual search for quick weight loss programs. But, be realistic. How can there be any such thing—outside of chopping the fat from your body? How could you expect the weight to come off overnight? Was it gained with a snap of the fingers? Or the twitch of a nose?

“It only takes a weight loss of 5% to bring significant health benefits that may lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of diabetes developing.”

The goal should be consistent weight reduction over a period of time. You must be prepared to develop a whole new outlook on food and what it does to your body.

Monte Nido Mountain Nest announced that “95% of diets fail, and most will regain their lost weight within 1-5 years.”

Incremental: 25 Tales Of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Speculative, and Bizarre Fiction by Geoff Nelder

These twenty-five tales from Geoff Nelder have increment as a theme. INCREMENT:

Noun – an increase or addition, especially one of a series on a fixed scale. Synonyms: increase, addition, gain, augmentation, step up, supplement, addendum, adjunct, accretion, boost, enhancement. Verb – cause a discrete increase in. Mathematically the difference can be negative – decremental.

For example, a pothole doubles in size every day, a meteorite hits the same house daily at the same time, or a heavy leather-bound book on the top shelf teeters closer to toppling at each library visit. A sound is heard all over the Earth, but more worrying, it gets louder each day. A couple of astronauts’ crash land on an ocean planet (apparently) and incrementally sink.

A few stories are more mental than incremental, you’ll see.

Some of the stories have won awards and have been published before, but most of the wordage is new and drawn together for a common theme. I do not apologize for the mix of genres in this collection. I write as the muse takes me and only afterwards am, I asked, is it hard SF, bizarre, horror? You have a smorgasbord of fantasy, science fiction and speculative in your hands.

Reviews:

“Some of these stories are more mental than incremental – all wonderful.” By Limnisa Writers’ Retreat, Greece.

Xaghra’s Revenge by Geoff Nelder

When Reece and Zita become lovers, past and present collide as the spirits of their ancestors force them to relive one of the greatest battles of the 16th century. Xaghra’s Revenge follows the fate of a sixteenth century abducted family, and of two contemporary lovers thrown together by the ancients. Reece and Zita are unaware that one descends from the pirates, the other from the abducted family. While ancient Gozo spirits seek revenge, so do the Ottoman Corsairs, who intend to roll back history, and this time win the siege of Malta.

The history is real. The places are authentic. The tension and excitement are palpable. “A gripping tale, full of energy and mystery, keeping you wanting for more with every line you read. John Bonello, First-Prize Winner of the Malta” National Book Award “I liked it. There’s a foreground of interesting characters combined with a skillfully fed-in hint of weirdness.” Jaine Fenn – Hidden Empire series.

ARIA Trilogy

ARIA: Left Luggage (ARIA Trilogy Book 1) by Geoff Nelder

Winner – 2012 P&E Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novel

This is where The Andromeda Strain meets Memento…

When an alien suitcase is found in space, a pandemic virus plagues Earth. Ryder Nape must gather survivors to escape an apocalyptic extinction of the human race.

ARIA: Alien Retrograde Infectious Amnesia

Today, Jack caught a bug at work. He catches a bus home. By the time he disembarks, all the other passengers and the driver have fuzzy heads. Jack has caught an amnesia plague, and it’s infectious. No cure.

Imagine the ramifications:

The passengers arrive home, infecting family; some shop en route gifting everyone they meet with the disease. The bus driver receives more passengers giving them change for last week’s prices and today’s amnesia. Some passengers work at the power plant, the water treatment works, the hospital, fire station. Dystopian chaos in weeks.

One man, Ryder Nape, knew about the case found in space and realizes it’s been opened, but can he persuade friends to barricade themselves in a secluded valley, hiding from the released amnesia bug? The survivors find love, hope and thoughts of revenge in their heroic struggle against the apocalypse.

ARIA: Left Luggage is a well-written novel with the pace and suspense of a video game (BioShock immediately comes to mind). The balance between character development and plot progression is managed smoothly, along with the thematics, which take the reader through a series of all-too-believable scenarios, chillingly showing how easy it would be for an advanced group of aliens to undermine the human race and have us destroy one another, without the need for any additional weapons or warfare. By Magdelena Ball

“Geoff Nelder inhabits Science Fiction the way other people inhabit their clothes.” By Jon Courtenay Grimwood

“Geoff Nelder’s ARIA has the right stuff. He makes us ask the most important question in science fiction–the one about the true limits of personal responsibility.” By Brad Linaweaver

Robert J. Sawyer calls ARIA a “fascinating project.”

“ARIA has an intriguing premise, and is written in a very accessible style.” By Mike Resnick

5 Star Review:  Let me answer the first question that came to my mind when the book ‘ARIA: Left Luggage’ arrived. The word ARIA has its roots in Italian meaning air.

Science Fiction as a genre literally is in a world of its own because human beings are obsessed with how to destroy or alter all of humanity by a single threat. It is rare that we find an author who can approach this kind of fiction from a new perspective, but Geoff Nelder has a truly unique concept.

As the first chapter begins the reader is introduced to Nelder’s large cast of characters like Vlad, Jena, Dan, Abdul and Antonio. His quantity of characters almost overwhelms the reader at first, but each has a role to play in this ordeal. The variety of solid, believable interpersonal relationships like the between Ryder Nape and his fiancée Teresa are essential as the world is threatened with massive memory loss by an alien virus. ARIA begs the intriguing question that as people lose their memories what is so important to their lives they must make a note of it to read when they wake up each morning?

The year is 2015 and there is never a dull moment as the reader joins the crew of “the shuttle, Marimar, in orbit approaching the International Space Station” and follows the science at the Dryden Space Laboratories at Edwards Air Force Base in California and the NASA Goddard Labs in Maryland. Travels to London and to the Anafon Valley in North Wales. Follow the viral repercussions to the Chester Zoo in UK, Moraine Lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and to Banff National Park in Canada.

The author caused this reader to ask how the world would handle such a virus if brought back to Earth from an exploratory mission, who on earth might be immune, and what secrets could NASA and WHO be keeping from us? That is what good science fiction does. It captures the readers’ imagination and takes us to places that we believe are impossible, but somewhere in the dark corners of our minds we recognize that there is a slim probability.

ARIA: Left Luggage by Geoff Nelder (volume one in the ARIA series) is a science fiction, action filled fiction that has already won the coveted Preditors & Editors Readers Poll for best science Fiction novel of 2012. Please consider purchasing and reading the whole ARIA series (available at Amazon).

ARIA: Returning Left Luggage (ARIA Trilogy Book 2) by Geoff Nelder

They wiped out most of Humanity in a split second of universal time.

It’s the apocalypse. It’s the extinction of mankind.

The Andromeda Strain meets Memento…

Meet the aliens who came from some deep space universe and brought a pandemic of infectious amnesia to Earth with their “left luggage.” In this gripping ARIA sequel, Returning Left Luggage, the alien invaders ignore the remaining human survivors or enslave them. Will the disparate last survivors form an alliance? The aliens, however, don’t bargain on encountering the psychotic Dr Antonio Menzies, and when he discovers how to use their telepathic-controlled gadgets, odd things happen.

Meanwhile, Ryder Nape – a survivor who escaped the infection – and his isolation group is in the South Pacific facing an invasion of amnesiacs. In France, a bunch of uninfected students discover the truth behind the aliens and their spreading, unkillable bindweed. The survivors’ passion for survival and dystopian experience drive them towards revenge, but can they win against such a strange foe? Can they make a first strike count? The destiny of the human race may be in their hands.

ARIA: Abandoned Luggage (ARIA Trilogy Book 3) by Geoff Nelder

In 2015, a case found in the struts of the International Space Station is brought to Earth. It releases a virus giving people amnesia. They lose their memory at the rate of a year’s worth every week. No one is immune. Infectious amnesia is unheard of. Industry breaks down as people forget where they work and how to perform their duties. People die as they forget their medication, and production ceases along with food, water supply, and energy. A few small groups realise what is happening in time and find isolated refuges. Ryder Nape takes a group to a secluded Welsh valley where safety from the virus is possible. Biologists call the virus ARIA: Alien Retrograde Infectious Amnesia.

In this conclusion to the trilogy, Dr. Antonio Menzies arrives on Zadok. The ARIA-3 bomb had reached there two days previously, causing havoc. Surviving Zadokians consider a mass-migration to Earth to escape the effects of ARIA-3. Antonio’s madness grows, and he makes disturbing discoveries in their laboratories.

Meanwhile, Ryder’s group is now on a Pacific island. His relationship with Jena is unstable and others have coruscating infatuations in tune with the increasingly desperate situation. When their island becomes unsustainable, and the alien-Earth hybrid weed gets out of control, where should they go?

What was the Zadokians’ real purpose with the ARIA viruses, and how does it all end?

“ARIA mingles the most optimistic calculations from the Drake Equation with a distopian outcome, creating a read that is as intriguing as it is fun.” By Magdalena Ball, owner of Compulsive Reader

While in the air, she witnesses an unsavory crime happening on the ground below. The perpetrators spot the balloon, and begin shooting at it, hitting the pilot and killing him. Somehow, Erica and Paul manage to land the balloon but their troubles are not over. They are tracked down and abducted by a gang engaged in human trafficking, and taken to an island in the Mediterranean. Erica soon adapts to gangland ways and uses her charms to escape.

Escaping Reality by Geoff Nelder

Escaping Reality is a humorous thriller set in Northern Britain and Amsterdam. The story opens with musician Gerry Ricketts having his face pushed into a water-filled gutter by a large policewoman. He is under arrest. After a quick trial, Ricketts is sentenced to ten years in Stonelodge Prison for a jewel robbery he did not commit. Determined to discover who framed him, Ricketts begins plotting his escape. It won’t be easy. Stonelodge is a Category B prison, old and smelly, with heavy security. His luck finally turns when he enters into a sexual relationship with Wendy, the prison librarian. He finally makes his escape, hiding out in the Northumberland moors, and eventually reaches Amsterdam. But the plot that landed him in prison is bigger than he knows, and his troubles are just beginning as he struggles to stay one step ahead of the law and clear his name.

Escaping Reality, although set in Europe, was inspired by the 1960’s TV series The Fugitive. Geoff Nelder’s other books include Exit – Pursued by a Bee, ARIA, and Hot Air.

The Tollivers of Bear Wallow Mountain: The Story of a Grandma’s Love by Helen Salyer Perkins

The purpose of this writing is to pass on my own family memories as well as memories gathered from other relatives, and to impart to readers the importance of family.

Our family was a very important part of my life as a child and continued over the years. In my mind’s eye, I can visualize our Grandma Tolliver as well as each of my aunts and uncles and most of the cousins.

This writing focuses on my grandparents and their fifteen children.

*************************

About The Author: Author Helen Salyer Perkins grew up in a very large extended family where most of the women were excellent cooks, Helen was exposed to many excellent dishes and recipes. As a result, when she married and became mother to three growing and always hungry boys, Helen learned to make delicious – at least most of the time – meals for them.

Over the years, she added many and varied recipes and recipe books to her collection. For two years in the early 2000’s, Helen was host of Kitchen Korner, a cooking program on WNVI, a local radio station in North Vernon, Indiana. She would review and pass on various recipes to her listeners five days a week. Many days, a guest was in the studio who shared their favorite recipe.

A couple of the most memorable guests were former Indiana Governor Edgar Whitcomb and now Vice President of the United States Mike Pence. Both were just delightful and very interesting guests.

Helen was born and grew up in Ohio but moved to Indiana nearly 40 years ago. The boys are grown now and have families of their own, but they contact her frequently to get the recipes for their favorite dishes. The most requested being “Bread Dressing / Stuffing”. She has spent the past year sorting and organizing her stash of recipes in a concerted effort to pass them on for others to enjoy!

Bugs In The Yard by Stacy Allgeier

Bugs in the Yard by Stacy McKell Allgeier is a sweet and wonderful look at the world of fireflies through the eyes of children. As the children wait patiently for darkness and that first spec of light, they are so very excited. It’s such a shame when the night ends and they must go inside to bed.

Customer Review: Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers’ Favorite

Bugs in the Yard is a children’s picture book written by Stacy Allgeier and illustrated by Savannah Horton. As the sun drops over the horizon, the children become excited, eager to see the wondrous sight that will greet them outside. As soon as darkness falls, the fireflies light up around them. The children reach up and gently try to touch each beautiful glowing firefly. Soon it is time for bed and the children are called indoors. They wish the fireflies a good night, before being fare welled in return by the fireflies, all of which are grateful for such a marvelous welcome.

Not only is this tale beautifully written, but the illustrations are a true stand-out, making the text so very clear about the excitement and happiness on the children’s faces. Stacy Allgeier’s well-penned story of nightly greetings and playtime between children and the fireflies nearby is heartwarming, bringing back so many memories of my own childhood back in Australia. No matter how dark it gets outside, the fireflies always bring the darkness to life, injecting much excitement and happiness into their surrounds. Parents and children alike were grateful for the incredible light displays back then – something that future generations can also look forward to thanks to Bugs in the Yard and its magical tale of nature’s sparklers. I loved reading Bugs in the Yard and wholeheartedly recommend it to be read to young children aged 3-7 years of age, so that they may also feel the excitement and the energy in the air when the sun goes down and the fireflies light up the sky.

High Flying by Kaylin McFarren

Skylar Haines has struggled with personal demons most of her life, going to dark extremes to subdue anxieties rooted in her tragic past. On a perpetual hunt for the next adrenaline hit, she discovers a passion for flying and becomes a hard-edged stunt pilot, verging on obsession.

In the sky, following her most daring airshow, she encounters a mysterious storm and almost collides with another aircraft, sending her into a perilous dive. Guided by a mysterious voice, she manages a safe landing but finds herself transported to another time.

Eight months before she was born. One week before her father was murdered.

Though baffled by her circumstances, Skylar soon arrives at a single certainty: Before her lies a remarkable chance to change her family’s destiny drastically for the better — or possibly even worse — depending on the choices she makes, before her window of opportunity closes.

5 Star Review: High Flying is a suspense thriller, action drama that takes the reader into the life of Skylar Haines.

If you have ever known someone who struggles with mental illness (or perhaps struggle yourself) you understand the dangers associated with inadequate coping skills that lead people to do dangerous acts that affect them and those around them. This book will stir compassion for the main character, Skylar Haines.

Although High Flying is fiction, the author draws on years of writing experience, strong characters and detailed research to deliver a very compelling story. Time and space are elusive and family history has inherited chains.

I love this quote from the author: “In the beginning, God created man, but things didn’t get interesting until man created the airplane and a strong-minded woman to fly it.”

Throughout the book the author uses quotes that are thought provoking and leads into each chapter.

With some creative latitude that author brings her main character, Skylar Haines to a point of decision. Having read the authors Threads Series, I am looking am looking forward to where Kaylin McFarren will take us (readers) on down the road.

I highly recommend that you read High Flying but buckle in for a wild ride. After reading High Flying, pick up Kaylin McFarren’s Threads Series (Severed Threads, Buried Threads Banished Threads and Twisted Threads). Review by Cold Coffee/Book Marketing Global Network

Special Message from The Author: “About seven months ago, my husband came up with the wonderful idea of tackling a story about flying that involved time travel as well. It seemed that the perfect opportunity to turn my creative juices loose had presented itself with the completion of my Threads series. Thus, I went to work, creating this romping adventure/romance with an unexpected twist or two that I hope readers will enjoy.”

From the Author: For many years, I’ve had the privilege to experience remarkable things and rare opportunities while traveling the globe.

My journeys have allowed me to meet interesting people, discover fascinating cultures, forge lifelong friendships, and introduce dear friends to all parts of the world.

Severed Threads (Threads Series Book One) by Kaylin McFarren

Award-winning author Kaylin McFarren delivers an action/adventure romance guaranteed to capture your imagination…

Romantic Suspense Novel by Kaylin McFarren: Believing herself responsible for her father s fatal diving accident, Rachel Lyons has withdrawn from the world and assumed a safe position at a foundation office. When called upon by a museum director to assist her former love interest with the recovery of a cursed relic from a sunken Chinese merchant ship, she has no intention of cooperating until her brother is kidnapped by a drug-dealing gangster. In order to save him and gain control over her life, Rachel must not only overcome her greatest fears, but also relive the circumstances that lead to her father s death.

Inspiration Behind The Story: Kaylin has been involved in the business of collecting and selling Asian antiques for more than a decade. Due to her interest in this field and her fascination with the undersea world, she was inspired to write a story about the recovery of a Chinese concubine’s cursed treasure from a sunken ship, which aids in healing a woman’s damaged soul. Kaylin spent four months researching scuba diving, trade routes, famous battles, and the natural disasters that befell Spanish galleons during the 15th-17th centuries. It is her hope that this action-adventure romance entertains readers and honors dedicated salvaging and exploration companies that have contributed remarkable discoveries and cross-sections of history to museums and institutions around the world.

Buried Threads (Threads Series Book Two) by Kaylin McFarren

A disturbing prophecy sends a treasure hunting duo on an urgent race to rescue a country in Kaylin McFarren’s heart pounding new novel, Buried Threads. Full of erotic suspense and wild adventures, this is one trip that readers will never forget!

Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen work together as the successful owners of a treasure hunting company. But a seemingly simple assignment–to track down a priceless gem that is believed to be buried in a shipwreck deep within the Sea of Japan–takes a startling, and dangerous, turn.

Faced with a monk’s dark prophecy that a natural disaster will soon strike Japan, killing millions, Rachel and Chase must embark on the mission of a lifetime in order to uncover the three cursed samurai swords that can avert the catastrophe.

Chaos ensues as their adventure takes them from shark infested waters and creepy caves to haunted hidden tombs and a confrontation with Yakuza gang members. Time is running out as the prophecy’s day of reckoning draws near. Will Rachel and Chase succeed before disaster strikes?

Buried Threads has received the following awards: 2014 Reader Views Readers Choice Awards – 1st Place for Romance; 2014 Pacific Book Awards – 1st Place Adventure Category; 2014 Chanticleer Book Reviews & Media’s Great Beginnings Contest – 1st Place Paranormal Mystery; 2013 Chanticleer Clue Awards – 1st Place Steamy/Action/Thriller; 2014 National Indie Excellence Awards – Finalist, Best Cover Design; 2014 eLit Awards – 1st Place Mystery/Suspense/Thriller; 2014 eLit Awards – 2nd Place for Best Book Trailer; 2014 Global Ebook Awards – Gold Medal (1st Place) in the New Adult Fiction Category & Bronze Medal (3rd Place) in the Best Book Trailer Category; 2014 Readers’ Favorite Gold Medal in the Fiction – Adventure Category.

5 Star Review: When the mysterious, beautiful Japanese woman with a sword peering from the black sheen of the front cover of ‘Buried Threads’ – by Kaylin McFarren arrived, the silent beckoning began.

I always know when I am reading a well-researched, well written action-adventure, mystery, romance novel when the plot enters my night dreams. Although I didn’t read book one in the series ‘Buried Threads’ stands well on its own. The author knows how to take a great plot, create believable characters, hold the reader in suspense and spin the tale with mastery.

Unfamiliar with Japanese culture (beautiful customs, geishas, ancient rituals), especially the underbelly of the Japanese society, warlords, and unseen paranormal conflicts the reader will learn a great deal while experiencing writing in its truest art form.

A treasure hunt for lost artifacts that are embedded with precious stones that are not only priceless, but hold a curse that once stood for a “Prince’s valor, wisdom, and benevolence”.

What would a fast moving, suspense filled, heart beating adventure be without the dangerous, unpredictable interpersonal relationships that leads to attraction, trust, mutually mind-blowing sex and true romance? ‘Buried Threads’ is all that and more.

Compassion and greed, life and death, fear and resolution, mission and accomplishment, struggle and survival, gratitude and faith are all aspects of this story that can only be summed up as spectacular.

We endorse multi-award winning ‘Buried Threads’ – by Kaylin McFarren as the action-adventure, mystery-suspense romance-thriller that it is. Review by Cold Coffee/Book Marketing Global Network

Banished Threads (Threads Series Book Three) by Kaylin McFarren

A valuable art collection disappears turning a treasure-hunting duo into crime-stopping sleuths committed to vindicating family members in Kaylin McFarren’s action-packed suspense novel, Banished Threads.

While vacationing at the stately Cumberforge Manor in Bellwood, England, Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen attend an elegant dinner party hosted by her uncle, Paul Lyons, and his aristocratic wife, Sara. Before the evening ends, a priceless collection of Morris Graves’s paintings are stolen from her uncle’s popular gallery, throwing all suspicion onto his wife’s missing granddaughter. Determined to clear Sloan Rafferty’s name and, in the process, win Paul’s favor, Chase scours the countryside looking for answers. In his absence, the police accuse Rachel’s uncle of an unsolved murder and secrets surrounding her grandmother’s death and the deaths of Sara’s former husbands turn his wife into the most likely suspect.

With the true villains hell-bent on destroying Paul Lyons and his family, solving both crimes while ensuring her uncle’s freedom not only endangers Rachel’s life but that of her unborn child. Will Chase save them before the kidnappers enact their revenge or will the ultimate price be paid, as predicted by a vagabond fortuneteller?

First place – 2016 Hudson Valley RWA Hook, Line & Sinker Contest

5 Star Review: Banished Threads begins on a dreary night in late October. Stargazer sliced through the surface of the North Atlantic at fifteen knots, heading straight for the coast of England. After facing many perils at sea Chase Cohen is relieved to finally be in London.

Quote from Book: “With Rachel by his side “they disembarked from the train at Whitchurch and stepped through the station’s main door, Rachel’s excitement rose at the prospect of seeing her uncle. He was a younger version of her father, with the same chiseled good looks. He would have been easy to spot, even in this busy place. But from her vantage point, he was nowhere to be seen. Believing he had forgotten about    her arrival, Rachel’s heart sank. She turned to Chase and was about to voice her concern when she caught sight of a handsome man in the passenger-loading zone: white cable-knit sweater, tight jeans, in his mid-thirties, shaggy brown hair, rugged jaw, easy smile, dimples, and unforgettable emerald-green eyes. He was leaning against a silver Mercedes, flashing his perfect white teeth and holding up a sign reading, “Welcome to England, Rachel Lyons.”

For a moment, she could hardly breathe, and she wondered if it was possible to fall over and die from shock. Or maybe from the idea of coming face-to-face with the last person on earth she ever expected to see. Although she had spoken to his Irish mother at a fund-raising event year earlier and was told that Killian was living with relatives in Northampton, she had convinced herself that the chance of meeting him was as unlikely as the sky turning green.

Killian Reed. His shimmering eyes were loving and warm and full of laughter. Rachel gasped and dropped her purse and over- night bag. She pulled off her high heels and ran to him. He swept her up and spun her around. When he set her back down, she buried her face in his chest and hugged him with all her might. She took a deep breath, inhaling the familiar scent of bay-rum aftershave. He kissed the top of her head, and she gazed up at him. She didn’t realize she was crying until he reached out and wiped a tear from her cheek.

“I can’t believe it’s really you,” she whispered, gratified to see unshed tears in his beautiful eyes.

“It’s me, seaweed brain,” he said. “I’m really here.”

Rachel stood on her tiptoes and wrapped her arms around his neck. He put his arms around her waist and held her close. His hand smoothed her hair as he whispered, “I missed you, girl.”

She looked up at him and smiled, and it suddenly dawned on her that you meet all kinds of people in your life. Some you never think about again. Some you wonder what happened to and if they ever think about you. And then there are some you wish you never had to think about again, yet somehow you do. Killian Reed just happened to be one of those disconcerting, unforgettable beings. He was part of her past: a distant, bitter- sweet memory that had lingered for years.

With their last parting, they had grasped each other’s hands with a rush of melancholy, tender, and inexpressible feelings, and had gone their separate ways.

But time had moved on, and there was someone else in her life now—a silent observer patiently standing by, watching their every move with an annoyed pinch between his brows.

She took Killian by the hand and led him to Chase. More than anything, she hoped they would become fast friends, but as they shook hands, Rachel found it difficult to ignore the frowns tugging at the corners of their mouths. They both took a step back and just stood there, regarding each other silently, the air now seeming as cold as a razor blade.””

Twenty-two chapters entwine a cast of strong characters in this well written mystery drama that expose family secrets, lies, stolen gallery art, kidnapping engaging readers with suspense and romance. Sit back and enjoy book three of this series where each book can be read in or out of sequence. Author Kaylin McFarren teases us with new tales taking shape in the recesses of her mind that are “only a night’s dream away”.

Twisted Threads (Threads Series Book Four) by Kaylin McFarren

Akira Hamada is driven by past failure. Two years earlier, she had a chance to kill her greatest enemy–Kaito Mitsui. Instead, the Yakuza boss forced her to become an assassin in his employ. Now Akira carries out the bloody business of the notorious crime syndicate and hates herself more each day.

 When Mitsui hears that his sister’s murderer will be on the cruise ship Starfish, he immediately tasks Akira with eliminating the man once and for all. This is what Akira has trained for, but a series of strange events on the ship tests her resolve and shows her a way to redemption.

 Devon Lyons, on the other hand, has nothing to do with assassins. He’s merely accompanying his aunt and uncle, Sara and Paul Lyons, on a free cruise. Little does he know that the two are the true targets of the charming Japanese tourist he has just met!

 Akira knows that either Sara or Paul is the killer but doesn’t know which one. She hopes seducing the handsome Devon will lead to better intel, but she is surprised to find herself trusting him. And soon, the pair finds themselves fighting for their lives on the high seas.

5 Star Review: For all of us following the Threads Series by Kaylin McFarren, Twisted Threads does not disappoint. When we left off with book three, we were wondering if the ‘Watcher’ would ever deliver justice.

This drama opens with Akira Sato contemplating a “justified killing” and she is lost in the consequences, forced to move forward. Devon Lyons laments over his recent demotion and the emotional sting of a forced Caribbean vacation to please his Uncle. Devon’s mind and attention soon shifts when Akira calls him “Sexy”. Women have called him “clever”, “lovable” and “incredibly handsome” but “sexy” has just caught him off guard. With more than romance in the air the voyage brings mystery, suspense and a complex drama with threads so twisted you will keep turning the page.

Here is an excerpt I think you will like: “Akira took the elevator across from the theater, dazed from the four glasses of wine and shot of vodka she had consumed. A few seconds passed, and the doors opened before her. She stepped out into the empty hallway and couldn’t figure out which direction she was facing, let alone which way to proceed. She looked down and realized the carpeting under her feet had red and blue medallions—not the gold and blue diamonds, she’d become familiar with seeing. After making numerous trips to various restaurants, she realized she had gotten off on the right floor but on the wrong end of the ship. The enormous staircase on her right led to the upper and lower levels, which should have made it easy to find her way back to her room.

However, her explorations on the ship had proved that not every floor had immediate access to the passenger levels; many were blocked by restaurants, lounges, and shops.

Akira decided it was best to start over—to backtrack the way she had come. She pushed the elevator button and waited for what seemed like an eternity. Then a slight sway in the ship’s motion caused her stomach to lurch. She needed fresh air to avoid further humiliation. A glass exit door stood waiting a short distance away. She slid it open and stepped outside. Oddly, all of the overhead lights above the walkway were out. It was impossible to see more than ten feet in any given direction. She gripped the safety railing and gazed up at the sky, drawing long, deep breaths. A sudden breeze whipped at her hair, tugging tendrils loose from her pinned-up hairdo. She wrapped her arms around herself, warding off the chill, and was about to return inside when she heard the sound of a voice.”

Jump right in and start peeling off the layers of this Twisted Plot, that will be worth the read and will leave you wanting more.

Flahertys Crossing-by-Kaylin-McFarren

Successful yet emotionally stifled artist Kate Flaherty stands at the deathbed of her estranged father, conflicted by his morphine-induced confession of his part in her mother’s death. While racing home, Kate’s car mishap leads her to a soul-searching discussion with a lone diner employee, prompting Kate to confront the true reasons her marriage hangs in the balance. When her night takes an expected turn, however, she flees for her life, a life desperate for faith that can only be found through her ability to forgive.

Review: “Even though it is a fictional story, it made me reflect on my own life, and how I shouldn’t wait until it is too late to let people that I love know how I feel, or to apologize if I need to. By Chicago Sun Times, Paige Lovitt for Reader Views

A well-written book, dealing with difficult issues of love, loss, healing, and faith, and never slipping into maudlin territory. A great debut novel! By Sacramento Book Review

It is also a novel I will promote to writers to review to see how good storytelling and strong writing can merge with exceptional honesty and create something that will live in readers hearts for many years, and be reread many times. By Terri Patrick

This story will be with me for many, many years and I am sure that you will find this 5-star book to be with you for just as many! By Buukluvr

This story will have your heart so captured and your mind so full of Kate Flaherty that you will see exactly what a true page turning book should be like. This story will be with me for many, many years! By Marta’s Meanderings

From The Author: Kaylin sat before her computer writing Flaherty’s Crossing as a source of personal therapy after losing her beloved father to colon cancer. You might say she was angry at him, at God, at the world in general. However, after writing this story, she had the opportunity to really look into her soul and consider the fact that so many other sons and daughters have had to deal with similar and even worse situations. Rather than a memoir, her novel evolved into a fictional journey which brought about the resolution she needed to find. She never expected this exercise in writing to go to press, touch lives, or win literary awards. But as a result of her good fortune, she has arranged for all proceeds from the sale of this book to go directly to the Providence Medical Foundation’s colon cancer research department in her father’s name. She’s now convinced and proudly shares her belief that good things can grow out of the worst times in our lives if you just take the time to open your heart.

*************************

About The Author: Kaylin McFarren has received 48 national literary awards, in addition to a prestigious Golden Heart Award nomination for FLAHERTY’S CROSSING – a book she and her oldest daughter, New York Times/USA Today best-selling author Kristina McMorris, co-wrote in 2008. Prior to embarking on her writing journey and developing the popular THREADS psychological thriller series, she poured her passion for creativity into her work as the director of a fine art gallery in the Pearl District in Portland, Oregon; she also served as a governor-appointed member of the Oregon Arts Commission. When she’s not traveling or spoiling her pups and three grandsons, she enjoys giving back to her community through participation and support of various charitable and educational organizations in the Pacific Northwest, and is currently the president of the Soulful Giving Foundation – a non-profit focused on cancer research, care and treatment at hospitals throughout Oregon.

Fun Tidbits: Kaylin is proud of the fact that her great aunt Bessie B. Cordell, an evangelistic missionary during WWII, was instrumental in opening an orphanage in Tientsin, China and also wrote two published novels, Precious Pearl and Blossoms of the Flowery Kingdom, documenting her dangerous, harrowing experiences.

She keeps a glass of wine close by while writing love scenes, Kleenex on her desk while writing heart breakers, and has been known to empty a box of chocolates when she’s completely stumped.

A consummate pantser and perfectionist, she writes and edits as she goes, and uses photographs of models and actors from tabloid magazines to visualize her characters.

She loves her husband of 46 years dearly. However, if Josh Holloway, Hugh Jackman or Ian Somerhalder came knockin’, well… their marriage just might be put to the test.

On A Personal Note: Kaylin sat before her computer writing Flaherty’s Crossing as a source of personal therapy after losing her beloved father to colon cancer. You might say she was angry at him, at God, at the world in general. However, after writing this story, she had the opportunity to really look into her soul and consider the fact that so many other sons and daughters have had to deal with similar and even worse situations.

Rather than a memoir, her novel evolved into a fictional journey which brought about the resolution she needed to find. She never expected this exercise in writing to go to press, touch lives, or win literary awards. But as a result of her good fortune, she has arranged for proceeds from the sale of this book to go directly to the Providence Medical Foundation’s colon cancer research department in her father’s name.

Sally Ann Haught Marx

The Living Series: Living Beyond The Fringe by Sally Ann Haught Marx

This is your moment when everything can change….

Are you living on the outside of God’s Love, wondering why others seem to have the inside track to Him?  Or perhaps you have walked with God your entire life and yet something is missing.  Have you wondered if your life is meant for more?  You, my friend, were never meant to live on the outer edges of His amazing love.

As a 30-year flight attendant, I have seen a million faces. And when I have looked deeply into eyes like yours, I have seen hearts desiring more and so many lives seeking to leave:

  • An Imprint
  • A Memory
  • A Legacy

His transforming love will bring your life full circle:

  • When You Seek Him In His Word
  • When You Practice Speaking With Him

It is then you will begin to recognize the calming voice of the Holy Spirit.  He will gently bring you closer than you ever dreamed possible.

Come join me on this journey as I share encouragement through scripture and true life-giving short stories.  Let’s encounter His incredible Love and acceptance together.  It is time!

Choose now to move ‘Beyond the Fringe’ and into YOUR true legacy.

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26.

Editorial Review

“This is a book for anyone who feels that disconnect from God.

Included is a series of short relatable stories that will encourage you in ways you may not have dreamed possible.

You are taken on your own journey and at your own pace.

The end of each chapter, leaves you in a place of an open-ended conversation with your Heavenly Father.

The author begins the prayer, but you get to finish it every time.

There is a significant point in this book and it is different for each person, it is a particular place where you feel the shifting of your legacy.

And it is good.”

*************************

About The Author: Author Sally Ann (Haught) Marx grew up on a farm in rural Pennsylvania in a large, close-knit family. For as long as she can remember, she has had a love of words and a desire to encourage others.

Her desire to follow God, led her to a Christian University, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies and Communication. Eventually settling into Kentucky with her amazing and supportive husband, they have loved and rescued several kitties over the years. They have one other rescue. His name is Benji and he radiates love and joy everywhere he goes. Their family is furry, and they live gratefully!

Sally Ann has been a flight attendant for close to 30 years. It has allowed her to travel the world and to see amazing places. Although she is well traveled, it is the faces and the stories of the people she meets that affect her the most. She has sensed and witnessed too many people who are living on the fringe of God’s love.

“Everywhere I go, I see that smiling is still the universal language.

A willingness to love others in truth creates a bridge over many wounded hearts. It has become increasingly apparent that laying deep within every human is a little child desperately desiring to feel safe and loved.

We are each beautiful creations who long to leave our mark in the world. When we finally learn how to live life in its fullness, we will then leave a legacy marked with His goodness.

Unfortunately, so many of us live our entire lives just outside the fullness He promises. We do not understand that we actually have a compassionate Father just waiting to love on us throughout this journey called life. It is my prayer, that our Father will use my love of words to encourage you to cross over from fringe living to a fullness of life you may never have dreamed possible.

After all, “It was He who came, to bring us life, that we may have it to the full.” (John 10:10) And It is because of His promises kept that hope overflowing will be renewed in you!

Don’t give up, life is waiting to be really lived, just beyond the fringe! Welcome aboard!”

Clayton Graham

Milijun: What would alien interaction really be like? by Clayton Graham

A tangled web of alien intrigue traps a mother and son in its deadly embrace.

When aliens capture Laura’s son, it’s going to take a lot more than a mother’s love to get him back. After infiltrating a military research base, Laura discovers a terrifying secret: their plans to engineer humans for galactic exploration.

Laura battles to save Jason, several mothers-to-be, and herself from alien control. But she quickly realizes the aliens have their own mission for her. Soon she faces a choice, take a chance at an impossible escape or accept the aliens’ vision of a new humanity.

Milijun is the first installment of an action-packed sci-fi alien invasion story. If you like tales of first contact, secret military operations, and the people caught in the middle, then you’ll love Clayton Graham’s fast-paced sci-fi thrill ride.

Buy Milijun to discover the future of evolution.

“Captured my interest from the very beginning, and never once let go.” Jenna – Indie Book Reviewers

“If you love the genre, read this gem.” Julius Zon – Self Publishing Review

5 Star Review:  Mankind has always had a fascination with extraterrestrials which dates from ice-age cave walls, ancient Egyptian carvings all the way to Milijun by Clayton Graham.

This well written novel explores our deepest darkest fears that as a planet we are not ready for an alien incursion, in fact we pretend our intellect can save us. However, in Australia 2179 AD main character Laura Sinclair is faced with the unimaginable when she and her son Jason witness aliens descending to earth.

It is earth’s exploration and mining on the lunar surface that begins the conflict that ultimately results in the alien incursion into the Australian outback. Laura and her son Jason are faced with alien-driven technology that severely tests a mother’s love and resolve to protect her offspring at whatever cost.

It is my intent to share a quote to show you the author’s writing style without spoiling the story. “It was almost 6:30 pm when Laura came across what would later be called the Rawlinna nest. The sun was dropping in the western sky as she staggered wearily to the top of a modest incline and surveyed the collection of old aluminum shacks spread out before her.

She dropped to the ground, partly to avoid detection but also from sheer fatigue. Her face was covered with sweat and there were several dirt marks down both cheeks where she had attempted to clear bothersome flies from her face. Closing her eyes briefly, she sat in silence, not wanting to act in haste but acutely aware that time was crucial. Earlier, she had made a brief stop to drink water from the choppa’s emergency rations but now felt the need for more. She quenched her thirst then nibbled at a foul-tasting energy bar as she thought through her next move.”

We invite you to the Australia outback where things are not as you might imagine. Milijun is a striking name for this novel. I dare you to find its meaning. It is an Australian aboriginal word which also has a Serb-Croatian context.

We endorse Milijun a science fiction debut novel by Clayton Graham. We purchased this book from Kindle. The review was completed on April 9, 2016.

Saving Paludis: A stunning extraterrestrial mystery by Clayton Graham

Finalist in the Readers’ Favorite 2018 International Book Awards.

An alien revolution centuries in the making will change humanity’s destiny forever.

Police agent Stefan Lattanzis never expected his planet to become a battlefield, nor Earth for that matter. But when scientists from Paludis share a technological breakthrough with Earth authorities, peace escalates to the brink of war in a hurry. It doesn’t help that the local aliens have a dangerous and mystifying agenda of their own. Meanwhile, a desperate human cult has its own plans to exploit the powerful new technology.

To keep his home world alive, Stefan must team with two strangers, a botanist and a mysterious seer. As embattled factions vie for control of the universe, the trio must trust in each other to keep the new technology from ripping time and space apart.

Saving Paludis is an electrifying sci-fi thrill-ride. If you like futuristic technology, alien political intrigue, and high-octane, paranormal action, then you’ll love Clayton Graham’s interstellar adventure!

From the Author: Latest novel ‘Saving Paludis’ is light years away from debut novel ‘Milijun’, but it occupies the same fascinating space between Science Fiction and the paranormal. The planet Paludis sits in the Pisces constellation, on the frontier of human exploration. It is a verdant planet, a beautiful planet. It has also been scarred by wars of colonization.

Human invaders control the planet and have done so for hundreds of years. Paludis is the planet’s Earth name; the indigenous population call their home Musk.

The Muskans are now restricted to a remote peninsula in the north-east of the main continent. Humans have taught the aliens their language and some of their ways, but the Muskans prefer the traditions of their ancestors. Or do they?

So, what can go wrong? Well, quite a lot actually.

‘Saving Paludis’ is not just an interstellar war novel. It reflects human nature in all its extremes: hate, jealousy, control, love and sacrifice. And what about the aliens – do they share these traits? In some ways yes, in others no. They are, after all, alien. But retribution is high on their agenda; an overwhelming desire to regain their planet. Quite how they attempt to do that must remain a secret!

I invite you to enter deep space, use the Einstein-Rosen bridges, and touch down on Paludis. Join Stefan and his friends to help save their world. You’ll love it!

5 Star Review: If you think the book cover is intriguing, wait until you begin reading “Saving Paludis” by Clayton Graham. The author has shared two very interesting maps at the beginning of the book to help readers get a sense of this fertile planet called “Musk” by its inhabitants, and “Paludis” by Earth. Paludis is in the Pisces Constellation which is 143 light years from Earth.

The story begins in AD 3898 and we find that Earth invaders have taught the colonized population of Paludis their language and some of their customs. After Paludis scientists share a powerful new technology with Earth, it doesn’t take long for mysterious factions to exploit the technology and the planet moves to the brink of war. The race is on to save Paludis.

With believable characters, and story telling that brings your imagination to the edge of space and time, Saving Paludis tells of strange cultures and traditions, alien politics, and cult-like paranormal phenomena. You cannot help but keep turning the pages of this fast-paced interstellar adventure. From a woman’s point of view, here is a glimpse into the story.

“Rain was falling in a steady drizzle as Selma turned into the road that led to her domicile. It was not yet fully dark and the final vestiges of sunlight creeping through a solitary hole in the clouds had turned the aluminium domes of the dwellings to a blood red. The roadway, smooth and black and shiny, snaked like a ribbon through the glistening streetscape and dark, low clouds threatened to crush the buildings beneath their ponderous weight.

Strangely, she’d encountered few individuals as she walked through the streets and, like on the drive south, very little traffic. It was as if a giant hand had been placed over the mouth of Kentucky, stifling its usual raucous behaviour. Selma assumed most people were indoors and she wondered if a storm was approaching.

She stopped outside her home, unable to resist a glance back to that part of the road where she had been abducted by Serpentine. Serpentine! Where was he now? She palmed the switch, pressed the code buttons in the right sequence and her door slid open. Entering, Selma turned on the light and the door closed behind her. The rain suddenly increased in ferocity, and she heard its rattling on the dome of the house.”

We invite you to read “Saving Paludis” as it is a reminder of human nature, whether here on Earth, or on the planets that we might colonize in the future, or even invade while aliens struggle to save their own world.

We endorse “Saving Paludis” by Clayton Graham as a suspenseful, full length, Science Fiction novel.  We purchased this book from Kindle on June 8, 2018 and this review was completed on June 13, 2018.

Silently In The Night by Clayton Graham

A collection of tantalizing tales with more twists than braided hair:

Mystery, murder and mayhem – plus a moment of romance.

Sympathize with a doomed husband and connect with an altruistic robot. Explore an isolated Scottish isle and touch down on a far-flung asteroid.

From the light-hearted to the darkest depths of the human psyche. They’re all there in this smorgasbord of short stories to keep you guessing at every turn. From the author of Milijun and Saving Paludis.

Buy ‘Silently in the Night’ and discover new worlds today!

5 Star Review: For those of us who enjoyed The Twilight Zone, Silently in the Night by Clayton Graham is just as thrilling. This book is a collection of tales where ordinary men and women are confronted with the unexpected.

I love each story and will return to read them again. One story titled Watering Down, sticks out in my mind. It centers on the calicivirus, which can cause upper respiratory infections and oral disease in cats. Probably because I am a cat lover, or because I have memories of the Dustin Hoffman 1995 film titled Outbreak, Watering Down made such an interesting and unexpected tale.

I suspect, everyone who reads Silently in the Night will come away with one or more favorites. If you enjoy science fiction and mysteries that make your heart stands still when aliens, artificial intelligence, death, the unexplained or unexpected interact with your reality; Silently in the Night should be top of your reading list.

I am fortunate to have read Author Clayton Graham’s science fiction debut novel titled Milijun. When aliens kidnap Laura’s child, it’s going to take a lot more than a mother’s love to get him back.

I am looking forward to his upcoming release of Saving Paludis where “Nobody thought Paludis would become a battlefield, nor Earth for that matter, but in the darkest of times a glimmer of light can shine, resolute spirits can triumph over brutality and the strangest of strangers can become friends.”

I endorse and encourage you to read Silently in the Night by Clayton Graham. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on February 7, 2018.

************************

About The Author: As a youngster growing up in the cobbled streets of Stockport, UK, Clayton Graham read a lot of Science Fiction. He loved the ‘old school’ masters such as HG Wells, Jules Verne, Isaac Asimov and John Wyndham. As he left those formative years behind, he penned short stories when he could find a rare quiet moment amidst life’s usual distractions.

He settled in Victoria, Australia, in 1982. A retired aerospace engineer who worked in structural design and research, Clayton has always had an interest in Science Fiction and where it places humankind within a universe we are only just starting to understand.

Clayton loves animals, including well behaved pets, and all the natural world, and is a member of Australian Geographic.

Combining future science with the paranormal is his passion. Milijun, his first novel, was published in 2016. Second novel, Saving Paludis, was published in June 2018. They are light years from each other, but share the future adventures of mankind in an expansive universe as a common theme. Between the novels, short story anthology ‘Silently in the Night’ was released as an eBook on Amazon.

Harold Peabody and The Magic Glasses by Dawn Kopman Whidden and O. M. Faye

Harold dreams of being a hero like his father, a Navy SEAL, but he is what you might call an easy target.

He’s short, he’s almost legally blind, and he’s the new kid in town!

When the biggest bully in school smashes Harold’s glasses and he has to get a new pair, something amazing happens.

Suddenly, Harold can see anyone’s greatest fear.

Do you know what this means? R-E-V-E-N-G-E.

And it has never tasted so sweet.

One by one, Harold is going to make bullies pay. But, in the end, what if Harold becomes the villain in the story . . . instead of the hero?

Reviewed By Lesley Jones for Readers’ Favorite: “In Harold Peabody and the Magic Glasses by Dawn Kopman Whidden and O.M. Faye, Harold is travelling back to his mother’s childhood town in Louisiana after his Navy SEAL father was killed in Afghanistan. Harold hopes they can begin to rebuild their lives and he can finally become a hero like his father. But with his ‘coke bottle’ glasses, Harold is just waiting to be bullied again. He doesn’t have to wait long before the school bully, Jack, and his friends spot him. The gang terrorizes all the children at the school and soon it’s Harold’s turn. The bullies break Harold’s only pair of glasses for fun. However, when Harold gets his new glasses, he realizes they have magic powers, giving him the ability to exact revenge on the bullies one by one. Harold revels in the suffering and embarrassment of the bullies. Soon Harold becomes the bully himself. Now he has a choice to make; does he want to inflict suffering on others or become a hero just like his late father?

Harold Peabody and the Magic Glasses is a powerful story that covers the widespread problem of bullying in schools. The characters are brought to life and each is created with unique personalities. I loved Harold as the main character, a caring and loving boy who is coming to terms with losing his father, and the relationship he has with his mother is so endearing. Mrs Ezzy was a breath of fresh air and certainly my favourite character. There are so many discussion points throughout this story that you can share with your children, not only about bullying but loss and relationships of all kind. I also thought the moral of the story shows that bullies are usually victims themselves, and the scene with Jack and his father is especially poignant. This is a must-read for every child to learn the importance of compassion, forgiveness and how making the right choices in life makes you a better person.”

Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite: “Harold Peabody & the Magic Glasses is a fantasy/coming of age novel for children and preteens written by Dawn Kopman Whidden and O.M. Faye, and illustrated by O.M. Faye. Harold and his mom had come home to the small town in Louisiana where she had grown up. Their lives in California had been abruptly uprooted when Harold’s Navy Seal dad had been killed in action. The shock of his passing had been compounded when they received word that another family needed the apartment they lived in on the base. Jonestown, Louisiana was a far cry from Coronado, California where his dad was stationed, but they really had nowhere else to go. It seemed like at least a thousand kids went to Harold’s school in Coronado. Here the town’s population was only 874; school and life here would be very different.

Harold Peabody & the Magic Glasses is an engrossing and well-written story about a seventh-grader who has not even begun to comprehend the loss of his hero father and whose opportunity to show the school bullies a thing or two presents an almost irresistible attraction. Of smaller than usual stature, red-headed and wearing thick glasses, Harold presents an ideal target for school bullies. Whidden and Faye’s story highlights the difficulty kids face in telling grownups about being bullied, and I would imagine that those young readers who have been treated like Harold will be cheering him on when his magic glasses give him the opportunity to equalize things a bit. But, like him, they’ll also have the opportunity to consider whether that’s who he is, and they are. Harold Peabody & the Magic Glasses offers educators and caregivers a grand opening for discussing bullying and the resources available to kids who are being victimized, all wrapped up in a marvelous coming of age story that addresses loss and new beginnings. It’s most highly recommended.”

Reviewed By K.C. Finn for Readers’ Favorite: “Harold Peabody & The Magic Glasses is a short work of paranormal fiction written for children aged 8 and upwards, penned by author Dawn Kopman Whidden and co-author and illustrator O. M. Faye. The story focuses on underdog Harold, the title character, who suffers at the hands of school bullies due to his small stature and extreme visual impairment. When his glasses are smashed and replaced, Harold discovers the new lenses allow him to see into the souls of those around him and discern their deepest fears. He sees the opportunity for revenge before him. Now, he has a chance to be brave and powerful like his late Navy SEAL father, but will the power go to his head and put a new, vengeful darkness into his heart?

Emotive and considerate, this is both a fun and moral tale which teaches important lessons about the nature of power, kindness and cruelty. Co-authors Dawn Kopman Whidden and O. M. Faye have done an excellent job in raising important issues through the character of Harold. I was sympathetic to his situation and his grief at first, but even the magical fix provided to him has its own problems and complications which need to be addressed. I enjoyed the other characters that he encountered, and how each of them had issues that can be used as talking points by teachers or parents, but also the characters were well developed in the world of fiction for an enjoyable read. Overall, Harold Peabody & The Magic Glasses is a recommended read for children and their guardians.”

A Child Is Torn (Whitley & Keal Mystery Book 1) by Dawn Kopman Whidden

When dependable Evan Madison fails to show up for work, police are dispatched to his home. His ten-year-old son, Brad, is discovered inside, unharmed and seemingly alone. He is stoic, sitting in front of the television playing his favorite video game, Super Mario–and he’s covered in blood.

Veteran Police Officer Marty Keal is the first on the scene. With his many years of experience, he thinks he’s seen it all. That is, until he discovers Brad’s not really alone after all. Upstairs in their bedroom lies the brutally bludgeoned and deceased bodies of both Brad’s mother and father. When questioned, Brad confesses to the horrific murders. When Brad is transferred to a local mental health institution for children, Dr. Hope Rubin is brought in to evaluate and treat the child.

A preliminary investigation shows no evidence of any kind of mistreatment in his past. She must determine the disturbing truth: Is Brad telling the truth? Or is he covering for someone else?

Detective Jean Whitely rounds out the investigative team; and she suspects there is much more to the case than what meets the eye. The happily married mother of two is unwavering in her determination to uncover the real truth about Brad. Was he abused? Or is he the product of an evil seed born to kill?

As the layers of truth about Brad are systematically peeled away, you will be compelled to ask yourself, which is the more dominate factor in contributing to who we are–NATURE or NURTURE?

Faceless (Whitley & Keal Mystery Book 2) by Dawn Kopman Whidden

Fallsburg, New York has a killer on the loose—one who’s leaving their sadistic, telltale marks on innocent victims.

A pretty teenage girl is found dead in the woods, her face horribly mutilated. A few days later, a second girl, also strikingly beautiful, is attacked in a similar fashion. Who would do such a brutal thing—and why? Is there some sort of psychopathic monster lurking out there, preying upon vulnerable females? Or are the victims being targeted by someone they know?

It’s up to two of Fallsburg’s finest; Detective Jean Whitley and her new partner, Marty Keal, to find out who’s responsible. When Jean starts digging up clues, she is startled to learn that the crime has hit uncomfortably close to home. The victims–and many of the potential suspects–are classmates of Jean’s fourteen-year-old daughter Bethany. To make matters worse, Bethany’s behavior has drastically changed. Jean’s sweet, loving child has become a sullen, secretive stranger. How much does Bethany really know about the victims–and the crimes that are taking place? Does Bethany’s hunky, new heartthrob have anything to do with the crimes? And why does the mounting evidence keep pointing to a popular parish priest?

Suddenly deprived of her longtime police detective mentor and friend, Jean is forced to take the lead in this latest investigation while breaking in a new partner. As they dig deeper into the case, Jean encounters threats to her career, her family relationships…and quite possibly to her own daughter’s life. Through it all, Jean and Marty must unravel a multi-layered mystery and put a face on the unseen villain before anyone else ends up dead…and faceless.

Stolen (Whitley & Keal Mystery Book 3) by Dawn Kopman Whidden

Another homicide has rocked the small town of Fallsburg, New York.

In a cabin nestled deep in the woods, two male victims are discovered, both gunshot victims. One is deceased the other one is barely alive. But it is not the murder itself that has detectives Jean Whitley and her new partner Marty Keal frantic to find out the answers of what occurred in that cabin, but it is the identities of the two small children also found at the scene.

One child is quickly identified, but the other, a young boy, remains a mystery. The only one with possible answers is the man who lays critically wounded and unconscious in the hospital, because the unidentified boy either cannot or will not speak.

What happened in that cabin that left one man dead and another barely hanging on…?

Keeping Hope Alive (Whitley & Keal Book 4) by Dawn Kopman Whidden

A young couple taking a leisurely walk through the woods are shocked when their quiet, peaceful stroll ends as they come across what is, without question, a human skull.

When Detectives Jean Whitley and Marty Keal are called to investigate, two more bodies are uncovered nearby in shallow graves, but unlike the first, these murder victims have just met their demise. Now not only do the detectives have to discover the identities of all three victims but have to see if the victims are somehow connected or if it’s just a coincidence all three were dumped so close together?

While Jean and Marty search for the answers, Marty’s fiancé, Psychiatrist Dr. Hope Rubin, is working hard to get her patient Brad Madison released from Armistace Hospital for Children, where he has been living since the brutal murder of his own parents, while trying to take care of her own personal business of planning her wedding. But then the unforeseeable happens. Hope disappears and Brad claims he knows what happens. Can the disturbed boy be trusted to be telling the truth and is Hope’s kidnapping in any way linked to the three victims found in the nearby woods?

Marty and Jean’s search for the killer become much more desperate and horrifyingly personal when Hope is kidnapped. Will they find her before it’s too late? Or will she become another victim?

Will the detectives be able to KEEP HOPE ALIVE?

About The Author: Dawn Kopman Whidden is a native New York author who grew up in the close-knit community of Little Neck Douglaston during the baby boomer era. She graduated from Queensboro Community college.

Twenty years ago, she traded in her days of living in the bustling city for a more serene and tranquil life on a small farm in the town of Bell, located in North Central Florida.

She is retired and shares her life and love with her husband of nineteen years and an adopted stray dog she named Casey. She has also been blessed with two beautiful grandchildren.

STOLEN takes the GOLD IN READER’S FAVORITE CONTEST

The world is full of crazy people. Once upon a time, stories like the ones that Grimm Brother’s wrote were just something that came from their imagination. Classic tales of stepmothers serving her new husband’s children for dinner… (not for dinner, but THE DINNER) Crazy old ladies putting lost children in an oven.

Today the craziest and most inexcusable things happen to the most vulnerable, and its reality not fantasy. I hope that my story never finds its way into a local newspaper…but who knows. Anything can happen and it does.

General Fiction

The White Sofa by Debi Stanton

Sam walked over to the pile of canvases leaning against the opposite wall. Flipping past the portrait of the small child with the oval eyes, to a dark canvas full of eerie blacks and blues, Sam’s eyes widened. Grotesque faces with mouths agape, loomed in the dark tree limbs encompassed with shadows of a night sky. Sam felt herself shudder and pressed on to the next canvas.

Flipping on, she came upon a canvas that was just as eerie, although the scene was different; a dark house, late at night with only one window illuminated. Scary, Sam thought. She immediately flipped to the next canvas. She nearly jumped out of her skin as a red-faced demon glared back at her. With wide eyes and mouth agape, it seemed to lunge at her. He had horns that were twisted so the points were prevalent and seemed to draw your attention to the fact that this creature could gouge you to death.

Quickly moving on, the next painting was a single iridescent moon in the middle of a solid black canvas. The moon was oozing into the background. That was enough! Sam shoved the paintings back against the wall and looked at the portrait of the little girl again. “What the hell happened to her that she could move from painting the innocence of a child to pure evil?” she muttered. “What went through my sister’s mind? I just don’t understand what drove her into this madness.”

The Fellowship Flock by Debi Stanton

Fellowship First is the only church in Fairhope, so if you need some “churchin’” that’s where you attend.

The members are known as The Fellowship Flock, a term given to them by the oldest member of the congregation, Oldham Jacobson. Oldham is known for turning a phrase!

As with many “churchie” communities, there is a feeling of camaraderie, spiritual love, and drama….oh yes, there is drama!

Not everyone in Fairhope attends the little church, but you can bet that everyone at the church knows what is going on with everyone in town. And, if you didn’t know what was going on before, you are about to be enlightened!

This story is fiction. While Fairhope, Alabama does exist, all characters represented here are fictionalized. Any likeness to those living or dead is purely coincidental.

Literary Letters

Letters To Loved Ones: Remembrances Of Those We Have Lost by Debi Stanton

Letters to Loved Ones is a collection of letters written by those who have lost someone near and dear to them.

Writing a letter to a loved one is a way to deal with the grief and to honor them with your love. Healing is a process.

Grief is something we all have to deal with during our lifetime. It’s how we deal with that grief that is most vital to moving forward.

My inspiration for this book came from my Mamaw, Mary Pearl Lowe. She was inspiration in my life in more ways than I can count. I dedicate this book to her memory.

This isn’t a sad book; it is a dedication of love.

True Crime

Waynesville, Indiana: Mother’s Day, Murder and Mayhem by Ray Stanton and Debi Stanton

Murders on May 11, 2013.

The 911 call came in a little after 10:30 p.m. “There’s blood everywhere,” Daniel told the 911 operator. “I just walked in and there’s two, I have two bodies here, and I think they have both been shot. There’s blood everywhere.”

Daniel gave the 911 operator his location. He explained to him, “There might be three, because I can’t find my mom either.” He told the operator that the house looked like it had been ransacked. “There was a fight here.” Daniel said.

Katheryn Burton was shot and stabbed four times. Each of the other victims: Aaron Cross, Tommy Smith and Shawn Burton were shot at least twice.

Samuel Sallee has been convicted and sentenced to four consecutive life sentences for the brutal murders that changed one young man’s life forever. The next day was Mother’s Day!

“That guy killed my whole family,” said Daniel Burton, the son of Katheryn Burton. “I think I’ve earned a front-row seat to watch him die. I’d lump him together with Hitler, because I can’t think of anyone else who is that evil!”

Daniel Burton:

“The Trial was my family’s story.

This is mine.”

Reviewed by Michelle Randall for Readers’ Favorite

“Author team of husband and wife Ray and Debi Stanton have taken great care in working with Daniel Burton, the lone survivor and witness to the Waynesville murders. They have also worked to corroborate as much of what he said as they were able. That all being said, please know up front that what Daniel Burton went through is a life changing ordeal and he was left without a support system to help him deal with what had happened. This is not a book to be read by anyone that might be triggered by his trauma. Waynesville, Indiana: Mother’s Day, Murder & Mayhem is Daniel’s story of what happened that night in May. These are his memories, thoughts and reflections on the people who died and the effect that it had on him.

Waynesville, Indiana: Mother’s Day, Murder & Mayhem is a non-fiction book as it is a true event that happened in a very small town, if you can even call it that, just outside of Columbus. It is a true crime story in that it talks about the crime that was committed, but mostly this is Daniel’s story. His mother and her long-time boyfriend were murdered, plus two others, and he was the one to find them and call 911. He was left all alone, his father having died years earlier. Authors Ray and Debi Stanton explain how they worked with Daniel and give you a real insight into how this event has affected him and left him to this day. He was left completely alone; no support system, no help, nothing to deal with what had just happened to his family. In some ways Daniel was the fifth victim of that night. This is a good story, but it could easily trigger sensitive readers.”

Raising David Again by M. A. Appleby

David was an energetic man since birth, musically gifted and with a thriving career and family life. However, this all changed when he suffered a traumatic brain injury after an off-road vehicle accident in Florida and had to adjust to a new version of himself.

He wasn’t the only one to change; his mother, Marjorie Appleby, recounts the life-altering experiences of David’s family in her caregiver journaling turned survival health guide, Raising David, Again.

Marjorie’s journal entries during David’s hospitalization and rehabilitation present advice keys for recovery for brain injury survivors and caregivers to use during the process of recovery.

David’s left-brain damage not only meant re-learning basic motor skills, but also changed behavior after injury, as Marjorie and David’s father Dave cared for a different David. However, Raising David, Again describes God’s purposes for injury and how their faith in God kept them going in the darkest hours.

Awards:

  • RAISING DAVID AGAIN has won a GOLD and SILVER medal! This is a National Book Awards Competition…a silver in Autobiography/Memoir, and a gold in How-To/Self-Help!
  • RAISING DAVID AGAIN has won a 1st Place in Category Autobiography/Biography from the Christian Book Awards Fall of 2017!

Editorial Reviews:

Written from a mother’s heart, “Raising David Again”, takes one through an emotional journey of healing, courage, and compassion. It is heartwarming and funny. A manual for those who are taking care of someone with a traumatic brain injury. As she states in chapter six, “Brain injury is a family affair.”

Excellent guide for all who suddenly find themselves in the difficult position of caregiver.

Written with tears, humor, understanding and unconditional love, this book helps the caregiver work through the maze of medical, insurance, emotional and the unexpected issues.

Written by someone who has “been there, done that”, this book offers guidance in a well written, easy to read and understand format.

Raising David Again should be given to every person who becomes a caregiver.

“Raising David Again” defines life examples for all of us to draw strength from during times of stress driven by a grave injury to a cherished family member. The book is a guide that has lessons for all of us to use as a tool box to fight the unbearable economic, emotional and physical stress to a family brought on by a traumatic injury to a loved one. The advice from the author is from a real-life experience, from a loving mother, that is real life tested and offered to all readers as hope just when you think all hope is lost

The Ancient Whisper: A Whisper Of A Mystery Trilogy Book One by M. A. Appleby

In today’s interconnected world, anyone can find themselves embroiled in international politics, intrigue, and suspense. Ellen and her family learn the hard way that things are not always what they seem as they find themselves in seemingly impossible situations – especially when ties to the Middle East surface.

Relying on her strong resolve, faith, and enduring love for her family, Ellen confronts a host of shadowy characters, then leverages family dynamics to lead them through twists & turns in this new-world-order story…you will cheer for Ellen and her family as you travel with them!

A family struggles to rebuild their lives after a mysterious tragedy alters the course of their existence. Ellen Andress awakens from a drug-induced stupor to discover that she has been kidnapped by people who have ties to the Middle East. Once Ellen is taken back to where she was taken, she is unknowingly deceived by men posing as Special FBI agents. They place her and her family into the Federal Witness Protection Program, confiscating all of their possessions. With no income and a new identity, Ellen must generate money quickly. She then enters the perilous world of horse racing, wagering, and hi-stakes betting.

When she can’t reach the FBI agents, she contacts the CIA, where she learns that something big is going down, but what?

“Compelling story around a strong character you want to cheer for.” – Karen Hansen, PhD, LMHC (Seattle, WA)

“Exciting mini stories embedded in the main story and found it hard to find a good place to stop reading.” – Don Paullin (Author and Speaker)

“A wild ride – a very entertaining story that draws the reader in.” –  Annie Peters (The Portland Review)

“The Ancient Whisper: A Whisper of a Mystery Trilogy, Volume 1 by M.A. Appleby is the story of Ellen Andress, a woman who has her life turned upside down when she is kidnapped and taken somewhere. A mother and a fighter, she becomes suspicious when she finds out that she has been taken away by some men who say they are FBI agents. Given a new identity, she takes things into her own hands to get back her life and make sure that she and her family safely make it out of this conspiracy that they have found themselves in. What is the actual purpose of kidnapping her and her family? What can Ellen do to get safety for herself and her family? Can she even get out of this life that forces more powerful than her have given her?

The Ancient Whisper is a mystery that I loved reading. It had me on the edge of my seat and kept me guessing and guessing until the very last chapter. This is not your garden variety mystery; it has substance and it easily connects with the reader. Try as hard as I might, I was unable to find any loopholes in the story, which was really refreshing. The tension and mystery were so thick that I could almost taste them. I really enjoyed how the atmosphere was created and then carried forward. In fifteen chapters that have been uniquely named, author M.A. Appleby gave the story a lot of substance and ensured that the reader stayed invested and interested in the story all the way to the end. The characters are very well-developed and actually add to the story and keep the reader more interested. I enjoyed the flow of the plot and how the author mixed horse racing and betting without deviating from the actual story line. I loved it and really enjoyed it!”

“This is a must-read book. It has everything – suspense, action, mystery, family, twists and turns and so much more. I was hooked from the start to the finish. Ellen is the heroine of the story. When she finds herself a prisoner in a foreign land, she never gives up in her fight to get home to her family. When finally, she is allowed to return she finds herself in the federal witness protection program and being forced to live in a broken-down horse farm in Virginia without anything from her past life and waiting for her children to join her; she learns to make the best of her new life. Ellen deals with each twist and turn and deals with each nightmare as it happens. I cannot say enough good things about this book and urge you to read it today. I am anxiously planning on reading book two in the A Whisper of a Mystery Trilogy and can’t wait to see what happens next. Thank you, M. A. Appleby, for a great book.”

“THIS is a book I call a “grabber”. It gets you from the start and simply does not let go till you, whew….are at the end.

Book One in a trilogy I look forward to reading what comes next! Appleby has written a puzzle within a puzzle within an enigma that has extraordinary circumstances. Right off the bat, you wonder what direction the book is taking and get so thoroughly absorbed that when the pieces finally start fitting together you feel like Sherlock Holmes.

Ellen Andress is on her way home from a vacation in Hawaii with her husband. There ends all sense of normalcy. For her, her family and the reader.”

“THE ANCIENT WHISPER is a wonderfully written suspense novel written by M.A. Appleby. I didn’t know what to expect upon selecting it, and to my surprise, was taken into a world and culture that was fascinating. I was riveted by the colorful characters, and not having answers to questions easily. The exposition keeps you on the seat of your pants. I couldn’t put it down! I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.”

Whispered Dreams: A Whisper Of A Mystery Trilogy Book Two by M. A. Appleby

Book Two focuses on Ellen’s son, Jason, who has grown into a young man and is every bit as headstrong as his Mother.

Together, they expand their racing teams, outsmart the ‘good ole boys’ down at the race track, and endure confrontation from owners who like to play by their own rules.

Meanwhile, the CIA uncovers a plot to kill Jason, due to his heritage, from their nefarious Middle East cousins.

As he learns that the Monarchy of Obagur is threatened, he feels compelled to become involved. He is caught up in a coup and during the confusion is presumed missing or dead. Refusing to attend the Memorial Service, Ellen knows Jason is still alive, but what has happened to him?

“Whispered Dreams by M.A. Appleby is the second book in the A Whisper of a Mystery Trilogy. Ellen P. Andress is now known as Ellen D. Thompson. After the murder of her husband, Ravi, witness protection relocates Ellen and her family to a small community in Virginia. Years pass, life at Ashwood Farm and Stables has kept Ellen and her family busy with house renovations and harness horse racing. Ellen and Adrian plan to marry, her daughters are maturing and her son, Jason, will soon graduate from high school. After graduation, Jason must face the biggest decision of his life. He must decide whether to follow the destiny and legacy of his father’s family in Saudi Arabia or remain with his family in Virginia. Bizarre and unexplained incidents keep happening. Every decision result in an unbelievable consequence. Ellen is determined to find out why her family is on this strange journey. Unsettled feelings, premonitions, and dreams whisper to her in her quest to discover the truth.

M.A. Appleby’s Whispered Dreams is a story of family, mystery, and adventure. The story opens with the heroine sharing her memories. These memories lay the foundation for the continuing story. The narrative is a bit choppy at first, but as the story unfolds an intriguing rhythm begins to flow. As the heroine tells her story, you sense her drive and resolve, yet feel confusion and fear hovering all around her. As the plot thickens, the conflict intensifies internally and externally. Hell has no fury like a woman scorned, but you mess with her children, and the battle takes on a whole new level of rage. With each change of location, the canvas of the story broadens, causing the main cast of characters to develop and evolve. Furthermore, Appleby plants mysterious circumstances and bizarre incidents throughout the narrative, creating an engaging plot. As this segment of the trilogy comes to an end, some questions are answered, while others remain unsolved. One thing remains certain; this courageous heroine will never give up until the mystery is solved.”

“Whispered Dreams by M.A. Appleby is the second book in A Whisper of a Mystery trilogy. Against all odds, Ellen’s living a good life with Adrian and her three children. She can handle anything thrown her way, including the owners at the race track and her son Jason’s decision to go help his uncle in the Middle East defend the monarchy of Obagur from growing threats. When Jason stops responding and everyone stops answering Ellen’s phone calls, Adrian goes to the CIA to uncover the truth and discovers Jason has disappeared. While everyone is quick to write him off as dead, Ellen’s not giving up and believes there’s more going on than meets the eye.

M.A. Appleby splits the story between the first-person perspective of Ellen and the third person perspective of Jason, balancing out the feeling of home and mystery through Ellen and an action-packed conspiracy through Jason. Ellen has a rather cozy life with Adrian and her three kids, despite dealing with the owners at the race track. The majority of the plot focuses on Jason as he follows in his father’s footsteps by going to the Middle East to help his uncle and embrace his royal heritage. When Jason first arrives, it’s like a dream as he has a sense of wonder about this life he’s going to lead and forms a connection with his late father. However, as he trains and learns, he quickly discovers that this isn’t paradise. His ideals for his life quickly go up against his uncle’s plan for him. His life is threatened and he begins to feel trapped, which makes him start second guessing the decisions that brought him here. When a betrayal is unveiled, it sparks a dangerous path.

A side of romance is seen with Ellen and Adrian’s happy relationship which tends to be bubbly, but isn’t without its seriousness as they treat each other as partners and confidants. Jason has a mysterious romance with a woman who seems to show up out of nowhere and who ends up factoring into the story in a key way. Appleby brings a lot of heart to this family through Ellen’s perspective as that of a mother watching her children grow up and follow new paths in their lives. So, it’s a little bittersweet and adds more depth in an emotional sense when Jason disappears. The family is at the heart of the story as the love and hope Ellen has for her children is what keeps her moving forward, no matter what anyone tells her. Whispered Dreams is a cozy mystery meets international thriller with action, romance, and conspiracy.”

Journey Of A Thousand Steps: A Whisper Of A Mystery Trilogy Book Three by M. A. Appleby

After several years with no new information about Jason, Ellen still wants closure and vows to never give up.

A documentary about a super cyclone that devastated islands west of Fiji catches her attention-oil tankers the size of football fields are maneuvering to avoid the storm; and this gives Ellen a theory and renewed hope. Taking matters into her own hands, she devises a plan to seek answers without the CIA’s help.

After searching, Ellen brings a storm survivor home to be part of their extended family, indicating he has a brain injury. This is possibly the beginning of the hardest journey of her life. I dealt with Traumatic Brain Injury when my son had a accident. Finding peace and closure has not been easy. In the last chapter of this book, I share our 10 Keys to recovery.

“Journey of a Thousand Steps is a satisfying conclusion to A Whisper of a Mystery Trilogy by M.A. Appleby, a gritty story of a woman in search of answers. Jason has been missing for years, and in addition to the fact that Ellen can’t forgive herself for his sudden disappearance, she has to deal with the thought that he might never come back again. In spite of encouragement from friends and family to let go, she vows to find out the truth; she wants closure. She goes in search of Jason under very trying circumstances — without help from the CIA — and returns with a storm survivor with a brain injury. Can life ever be the same again for her and for her family?

This is a story about family, loss, and dealing with brain injury. M.A. Appleby creates very believable characters and the pacing is just awesome with dialogues that read naturally. The story begins with therapeutic sessions between Ellen and Dr. Laurel and the reader can understand the depth of Ellen’s pain. The sessions unveil facts and offer great plot points and backstory to make the read an enjoyable one. The writing is insightful and there are realistic and pertinent thoughts that readers might want to linger on: “When something unexpected happens to alter the course of your life, how you handle it is what truly matters.

The themes of family, brain injury, and closure are well handled in this narrative. Talking about the family, the narrator says that it is like a circle and that the connection never ends; even if it breaks at times, it always finds a way to mend. Journey of a Thousand Steps features a gritty tale, emotionally and psychologically rich characters, and a story with strong plot points and twists that will surprise readers. Appleby is a great storyteller and her characters are so well executed that readers won’t find it hard connecting with them emotionally.”

“Journey of a Thousand Steps: Book 3 (A Whisper of Mystery Trilogy) by M.A. Appleby continues the story of Ellen’s struggle with forces outside of her control that want to destroy her and her family. Along with her CIA husband, Adrian, and the rest of her family, they have established a new life on Ashwood Station, where they train and race standard-bred trotters and pacers. Ellen is trying, with the help of her psychiatrist Dr Laurel, to put the past behind her, but there is one thing she cannot forget. Her son, Jason, who was heir to the Saudi Royal crown disappeared four years previously. Whilst everyone assures Ellen it is time to let go and move on, Ellen cannot. In her heart of hearts, she knows Jason is still alive and she will not rest until she finds him. A coincidental documentary of a super typhoon in the far away South Pacific will set Ellen off on a journey of mystery, intrigue and no small amount of danger in her never-ending search for her lost son.

This is the third and final book in the series and although it can be read as a stand-alone, I would strongly recommend readers to consider reading the full series from the beginning to get an easier grasp of the characters and their backstories. Journey of a Thousand Steps: Book 3 (A Whisper of Mystery Trilogy) is a good, solid, mystery adventure, with an insight into the well-to-do world of Ellen and her family. I found the horse racing side of the story to be most fascinating, as an avid follower of the pacing/trotting world, from the other side of the world. The story is told from Ellen’s first-person perspective and, as such, gives us a personal and touching insight into the mind of a distraught mother who refuses to listen to reason, simply because she knows her son is not dead. M.A. Appleby has given us a well written, well researched and very readable mystery, one that I enjoyed and can recommend.”

“Journey of a Thousand Steps: Book Three (A Whisper of a Mystery Trilogy) by M.A. Appleby is a captivating story of loss, of the quest to reconcile with the inevitable, and the journey towards healing. Inspired by a real-life tragedy in the author’s family, this novel comes with a bonus — powerful and life-changing steps to deal with brain injury. Years have passed by without Ellen getting any news about her son, Jason, and everyone in the family is of the opinion that she should move on and embrace life without her son. Perhaps accepting that the events leading to his disappearance were unpreventable could help her heal. But she refuses to let go without knowing what actually happened to her son. Follow her story as she takes things into her own hands and faces a devastating storm, only to bring home a survivor with a brain injury.

As the final book in a trilogy, it is a satisfying conclusion, a story that is beautifully told with clear points of view and a compelling first-person narrative voice. The story begins with the protagonist in the midst of the crisis and doing sessions with Dr. Laurel. The backstory is awesome and readers will enjoy M.A. Appleby’s ability to weave commentary into the narrative, featuring streams of consciousness and skillfully integrating natural sounding dialogues into the story. Ellen is the protagonist and a very compelling one, a real and believable character. There is a stubbornness in her that can only be the result of a mother’s love. The humanity infused into the narrative is strong. The suspense in Journey of a Thousand Steps: Book Three (A Whisper of a Mystery Trilogy) is nail-biting and the author succeeds in keeping readers engaged throughout the story. I couldn’t put it down. I loved the prose, the strong plot, and the steady pacing.”

About M. A. Appleby: “I am a National Award-Winning Author of a gold and silver medal (President’s Book Awards) and a 1st Place Winner in category Autobiography/Biography from the Christian Author Awards, Fall-2017 for RAISING DAVID AGAIN!

My first books, A Whisper of a Mystery Trilogy, was inspired by our true life-changing event that evolved into a compelling story of a family who struggles with what happens in the ‘blink of an eye’. I equate the time we spent after my son suffered a traumatic brain injury to being in a dream-like state, much like a slow-motion movie. As time went on, we thought we would all wake up from the nightmare and our lives would go back to ‘normal’ but that didn’t happen. The concept for A Whisper of a Mystery Trilogy has actually drifted around in my head for nearly 35 years. It only flowed out after the idea came to incorporate my son’s journey of recovery into the story.

The original purpose of the journal I started the day of my son’s accident, was to impart information to survivors and caregivers as a way to help them on their journey. That journal became the impetus to write The Ancient Whisper, Whispered Dreams, and The Journey of a Thousand Steps.

When the trilogy was completed, I wrote RAISING DAVID AGAIN. This is David’s story and how our family copes with this condition. Included are other amazing stories of survival after brain injury, the 10 Keys to Recovery, and the resources section called: Brain Injury Tool Kit.

Time Travel-Science Fiction Thriller Series: (The Harry and Meg Series)

A Sea Of Fear: A Novel of Time Travel (Book Three of the Harry and Meg Series) by Russell Moran

You’re Five-Star Admiral Harry Fenton, who President Blake calls the greatest fighting admiral in American history. Along with your Navy Commander wife, Meg, you lead your carrier strike group against the worst enemy the country has faced since World War II, a small nation that is intent on destroying the world’s shipping industry.

The seas of the world have become scenes of plunder, pillage, and mass murder. The president has convinced you to come out of retirement and put an end to the looming crisis. He promotes you to Fleet Admiral, the highest-ranking officer since Admiral Chester Nimitz. You and Meg were having a pleasant retirement, running a world-class resort that you bought in Rhode Island. But when the president pleads you to “Give ‘em Hell, Harry,” you know that you can’t ignore his call to duty. As people who have time traveled in the past, you come up with an idea to travel three years into the future.

With President Blake’s blessing, you and Meg lead a group of officers into the future. What you find is horrifying, an America taken over by a totalitarian dictator. You return to the past and report your findings. President Blake, hearing your terrifying story, convinces you that you have an even bigger call to duty, the greatest challenge of your life. You take on the challenge for one reason—Meg will be at your side.

As in the first two books of the Harry and Meg Series, The Maltese Incident and The Violent Sea, A Sea of Fear is a sweet romance between two of literature’s most exciting and likable characters, Harry and Meg Fenton. A Sea of Fear is a story of war, politics, time travel, and love.

5 Star Review: Just in time for summer reading and cruise ship vacations, A Sea of Fear by Russell Moran is here.

A Sea of Fear begins with this exceptional literary series’ two leading characters, Harry (Admiral) and Meg (Commander) Fenton both retired from their high-ranking positions in the US Navy, enjoying their very own, successful luxury resort on Narragansett Bay in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.

When news breaks that the Majestic (Celebrity Cruise Line Ship) has been attacked by a gunboat while in the Caribbean. President Blake requests both Harry and Meg come to the White House. Sensing the situation, Harry and Meg drop what they are doing and put their President and Country first.

With the understanding of time travel well established, Meg is asked to lead a group of US Officers into the future. America’s future is not what any government official, political or military would ever envision. With knowledge comes responsibility and maybe a chance to rewrite history.

Harry and Meg are true professionals, but they keep their personal married life and true love kindled with endearing communications and romantic encounters, when time and work pressure permit. Most of the time, they have a working relationship and with the Cruise Line Industry in grave danger, I share this quote.

“I walked into Meg’s office, next to mine. God, how can this woman be so neat when she has at least five balls juggling int the air at any one time? I couldn’t imagine a better chief of staff.”

“I guess you’ve heard the news by now,” I said.

“Yes, a news flash just popped up on my screen,” Meg said. “I assume you’re talking about the attack on the Splendor of the Seas. I just got this photo from the Office of Naval Intelligence. Some brave guy snapped a shot of the attacking ship just before it hit. Come and have a look, honey. As you can see it’s a close-up of the bridge of the attacking ship. It’s empty. ONI thinks this was a remote-controlled collision, probably directed by radio signals from a drone. Harry, I think this may be the official end of the cruise line business.”

“That sounds dramatic, but it’s also accurate. Each ship attack resulted in more and more booking cancellations. From the briefing memo I read this morning, I believe the sinking of the Splendor will bring the number of cancelled cruises to 100 percent. That little shit country has pulled off something nobody could have imagined. Come on, hon, a car awaits us for a trip to the base airport.”

“Where are we going?”

“Wanna guess?”

In this fast moving, action drama you will have a front row seat to critical situations that involve the security of the US, maritime treats of war, critical time travel and political decisions that will affect more than just the future of Harry and Meg Fenton.

Author Russell F Moran keeps the reader engaged in this third book of hisHarry and Meg Series. Each book stands alone, but you haven’t read The Maltese Incident (book one) and The Violent Sea (book two), pick up and enjoy all three as we wait to see if there is yet another installment on the horizon. I expect to see a made for TV Harry and Meg series one day. BMGN Review Date: May 5, 2019.

The Violent Sea: A Novel of Time Travel (Book Two of the Harry and Meg Series) by Russell Moran

Rear Admiral Harry Fenton has done it again. He’s traveled through time. He finds himself, with a serious head injury from a fall, at Pearl Harbor Base Hospital on May 16, 1942, three weeks before the Battle of Midway.

His wife and aide, Lieutenant Meg Fenton, is frantic, and waits for him—in 2018.

Admiral Harry is the commanding officer of Carrier Strike Group 14 in 2018, but the people in 1942 think he’s a busted up, hallucinating sailor who imagines himself an admiral. Admiral Raymond Spruance is commanding officer of Carrier Task Force 16. After hearing about Harry’s wild claims, Spruance orders him brought to his flagship, the USS Enterprise. After Harry tells him about time travel, Spruance is convinced the man is insane. But after speaking to him at length, Spruance is amazed at Harry’s knowledge of naval tactics and strategy. He calls Harry’s bluff and orders him to stay aboard the Enterprise for her upcoming engagement at the Battle of Midway. By the end of the battle, Spruance thinks of Harry Fenton as a friend, and even calls him “admiral.”

Now Harry needs to figure out how to travel back to 2018, to his carrier command, but most importantly, to the love of his life, Lieutenant Meg.

Chapter 1 Excerpt “Here, drink this,” the nurse said. “You’re not taking in enough liquids.” Good idea, I thought. I was thirsty as hell. I downed the glass of water in two gulps. But where am I? I wondered. Well, in a hospital obviously, but why? “Excuse me,” I said, speaking loudly because the nurse was about to leave the room.

The act of raising my voice caused a lightning bolt of pain to zing through my head. My eyes went blurry and I felt nauseous. She turned around and walked back to my bed. She held up a mirror. Holy shit, I looked like I collided head-on with a train. My forehead was swollen and my face was discolored, a pretty mix of purple, red, yellow, and could that be green? “Where am I? I know it’s a hospital, but where?” “You’re at the base hospital at Pearl Harbor.” Pearl Harbor?

Sounds familiar, I thought. “Please explain what happened to me.” “You were in Building 19, God knows why, and you apparently tripped and slammed your head against an engine block. Pretty stupid of them to put an engine block in the middle of the floor if you ask me. The place has no electricity and the windows are boarded up. From what the shore patrol guy said, it seems that you walked off a step to a lower level and fell forward, resulting in what you just saw in the mirror.” “You’ve been here exactly one week. I’m glad to see that you’re talking. This is the first sign of consciousness you’ve shown. You had one nasty concussion.”

“Do you mind if I ask you a few questions?” “Of course. Could I please have some more water?” “You can have as much water as you want. So, let me ask you a couple of questions. Who are you, and what’s your name?” Oh, my God. My head started throbbing again. I could not believe I couldn’t answer her simple question—and it was a good question. Who am I? “I’m sorry. I don’t recall a name. But things are starting to come back to me.” “Well, sailor, you’re doing great, my friend. We’ll just keep talking, and your memory will come back to you.” “Nancy, please hand me that newspaper.” “Sure thing. Let’s see how your reading skills are doing.”

The date on the first page read May 16, 1942. Shit, I must be hallucinating. “Hey, sailor, you look pale. Do you want to rest a bit?” I dozed off. When I woke up, Nurse Nancy was there “So, sailor, do you recall being in the Navy?” “Yes, I’m in the Navy.” My memory was starting to come back “Are you stationed on a ship?” “Yes, definitely yes. The USS Gerald R. Ford, an aircraft carrier. It’s my flagship.” “Your flagship?” “Yes, I’m Rear Admiral Harry Fenton, the Commanding Officer of Carrier Strike Group 14.”“Well, it’s a pleasure to meet you, Admiral. My name is Florence Nightingale. Now get some more sleep, sailor.”

5 Star Review: Imagine you could actually time travel. Now imagine waking up from a serious concussion in a strange hospital in 1942. When the fog in your head starts to clear, you realize if you tell the hospital staff that you are from the year 2018, they will most certainly commit you to an insane asylum. This is the precarious situation that Rear Admiral Harry Fenton finds himself in. Meanwhile in 2018, Harry’s wife and chief of staff, Lieutenant Meg Fenton and others close to the admiral, are frantic when Harry goes for a run and doesn’t return.

When he’s released from the hospital, Admiral Harry goes to sea with Admiral Raymond Spruance and engages in the Battle of Midway. He makes a time travel believer out of Spruance, who is amazed at Harry’s command of naval tactics. When he returns to Pearl Harbor, Meg awaits him.

In this well-written, well-balanced military suspense, time travel thriller, Author Russell Moran skillfully takes the readers from one time period to the next, keeping the reader engaged with his true-to-life characters, balancing personal life, with their sworn duty to protect American interests. It’s also a sweet romance between Harry and is wife, Meg.

Admiral Harry revisits the time portal and returns to the present. It is Friday, November 2, 2018 when the US Carrier Strike Group 14 rendezvoused with Japanese and South Korean ships in Tokyo Bay.

The country is faced with a crisis when Iran suddenly becomes a nuclear power. Admiral Harry, happy to be back in command of his strike group, comes up with the idea of a naval and air blockade.

“President Blake, besides being a gutsy leader, is a gifted diplomat. Secretary of Defense Jamison told him about my idea of a blockade and he realized it made sense, but only with the full cooperation of our allies. No way would he want the United States to go it alone with a risky operation like a blockade.”

When dealing with a nuclear power like Iran, powerful countries like Russia and China suddenly take notice. The burning question remains, who can we trust? The strategic objective of the blockade is simple; turn back any ship or plane leaving Iran and prevent any from arriving. “But the tactical operations could get dicey as hell,” Admiral Harry says.

I have enjoyed reading many of Russell Moran’s fourteen novels. As a lawyer and veteran in the United States Navy, Russell brings authenticity to his stories. The Violent Sea lives up to my expectations of his story telling and riveting plots. Each of his books are stand-alone, but if you are not familiar with his characters, I invite you to familiarize yourself with the list of character’s (with their titles) at the end of the book. The Violent Sea (book two of the Harry and Meg Series), is the sequel to The Maltese Incident, published June, 2018. Russell promises his readers a new title “Leonardo Murphy” to be published by the end of this year. BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: November 6, 2018.

The Maltese Incident: Harry and Meg Series Book One by Russell Moran

A corporate cruise ship, The Maltese, sets sail from Manhattan for the beautiful Azores on a charity fundraising cruise. The ship encounters a strange event in the ocean, and, after two minutes of turbulence, finds itself in a different time. The ship is surrounded by gigantic sharks. They’ve traveled back in time two million years.

The captain, Harry Fenton, a highly decorated naval war hero, falls in love with a beautiful passenger, Meg Johnson, a vice president of the Malta Investments, the company that owns the ship. After a whirlwind romance, they marry—in the ship’s ballroom. Captain Fenton convinces the passengers and crew that they must move ashore to a tropical island because the ship is running out of fuel and supplies.

An ancient forest inhabited by dinosaurs awaits them.

Captain Harry organizes a group to go ashore and inspect the island. Meg wants to go with them. Harry, fearing for her safety, tries to convince her to stay on the ship. Meg demonstrates that she is proficient with a gun by taking apart a rifle and reassembling it—in 15 seconds. Harry marvels that he’s never seen such an expert gun handler— or accurate shooter. So, AR-15 in hand, Meg joins the inspection party. Attacking dinosaurs are no match for Meg Fenton’s firepower.

Will the 1,000 souls ever make it back to the time they came from, or will they remain stranded in the distant past?

A scientist aboard theorizes that, to return to their present time, they need to go back to the time portal, or wormhole, that brought them to the past. But the ship doesn’t have enough fuel for the journey.

Realizing that their lives have hit the reset button, the crew and passengers construct a community in the forest—Malta Town. Under Harry and Meg’s leadership, they create a court system, a legislature, and all the elements of a small budding democracy. Meg figures out a way to harness hydroelectric power from a nearby waterfall. Everybody thinks of Harry and Meg as the heart and soul of Malta Town. They begin their new lives—among the dinosaurs.

The Maltese Incident is a tale of time travel, love, courage, and horror.

The Violent Sea, Book Two of the Harry and Meg Series, is the sequel to The Maltese Incident. Like The Maltese Incident, The Violent Sea is the further adventures of Harry and Meg Fenton, now two career naval officers. It is also a novel of time travel and alternate history. The Violent Sea will be published in the Summer of 2018.

5 Star Review:  As a reader who has enjoyed several of this author’s books; I am delighted that Author Russell Moran has written a new action adventure, romance, science fiction, alternative history series.

While reading The Maltese Incident my mind thought of all those ships, planes and people who have disappeared over the years in the Bermuda Triangle. Remember, that mystery has not yet been solved or any remains found.

Author Russell Moran uses his imagination and storytelling to put his readers on board the Maltese Corporate Cruise Ship, gliding its way from the Manhattan to the Azores. I dare say more rich people take cruises like this one, than simple retired folk like myself. It doesn’t take long into the story for me to appreciate not being on the Maltese in reality. With a bump and flash of light the Maltese passengers find themselves in alternate reality. The 1,000 souls on board must use their combined skills and what materials they have to survive with prehistoric creatures in the sea and on the land that they find and inhabit.

Just when you think nothing could be worse, other ships go missing. While the experts work on trying to figure out what has happened, Captain Harry Fenton and his wife Meg, the crew and passengers of the Maltese struggle to survive in an ancient time, avoid being eaten by prehistoric creatures, keep structure and civility among themselves while seeking a way to return through whatever portal, wormhole or time wrap they came through.

While military, scientists, academia, intelligence agencies and people around the world are still coming to grips with what is happening in the ocean, Wolf Blitzer reports from CNN. “The Celebrity Line cruise ship, Ocean Magic, disappeared last night. This incident didn’t happen in the Azores as did the other two events, but 50 miles off the coast of New Jersey. Just as with the previous two incidents, the ship simply disappeared.”

Theories abound and questions emerge about whether our own technology could be used against us. I invite you to read The Maltese Incident for yourself and draw your own conclusions.

You will find his detailed list of characters helpful. I personally enjoy Author Russell Moran’s fictional story telling and I am looking forward to his next book in this series titled “The Violent Sea”. BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: November 6, 2018.

The Matt Blake Legal Thrillers Series by Russell F. Moran

************************

Sideswiped: A Matt Blake Legal Thriller Series Book One by Russell F. Moran

Matt Blake is a Chicago trial lawyer and highly decorated Marine combat veteran. After losing his beloved fiancée in a tragic car accident, he finds that he has more battles to fight: alcohol and drugs. He gradually realizes that his life is spiraling downward, and that he needs help with the battle. He seeks the help of Dr. Benjamin Weinberg. a psychiatrist who’s also a family friend and consultant to his law firm.

Matt, with Dr. Weinberg’s help, tames the monsters that sought to devour him. After rehab, he turns his attention to one of the most serious personal injury cases his firm has handled. It involved a sideswipe car accident in which his client’s husband, a famous political journalist, was killed. The case looked almost routine from a liability point of view. Numerous eyewitnesses gave sworn statements that they saw the defendant motorist talking on his cellphone just before his car slammed into the plaintiff’s husband. The eyewitness evidence pointed toward negligence. At first it looked like an open-and-shut personal injury case.

But evidence began to mount quickly that the ‘accident” may have been intentional—that it may have been murder. But Matt and his team struggle with a big question: Why would James Spellman have been murdered?

Matt finally meets the firm’s client, Diana Spellman, James Spellman’s widow. She’s a strikingly beautiful university professor and well-known writer. Matt, having licked his alcohol and drug problem, as well as the loss of his fiancée, finds himself swept off his feet by the lovely Diana Spellman. He shares his past difficulties with her, and she shares hers with him. Besides having lost lovers in similar type car accidents, Diana and Matt discover that their lives have a lot in common.

But Diana has a problem—she’s a murder target. As James Spellman’s informal editor, she knew every story that her husband was working on before his death, stories that contained secrets—secrets that threaten the highest levels of government, secrets that someone or some group does not want out in the open, secrets for which they’re willing to murder in order to keep quiet.

Matt’s attraction to Diana is mirrored by her attraction to him. They fall in love. But their love is soon complicated by attempted assassination attempts on both Diana and Matt.

What began as a routine personal injury case suddenly evolved into a vast terrorist conspiracy—and Diana was at the center of it all.

Sideswiped is a crime drama, a legal thriller, a tale of terrorism, and finally a compelling love story of two people who dedicated their lives to each other. It’s a story of enduring love, kept alive in the face of crippling fear. The book will grab you by the gut, as well as by the heart.

5 Star Review: Sideswiped will send a chill up your spine the next time you drive on the freeway!

Russell F. Moran’s well-developed characters and distinct voice brings reality to the situation from sentence one and draws the reader into the story line with immediate empathy.

Main Character Matt Blake (x-Marine) is an Attorney, Blake & Randolph. Matt’s life changed (quote) “I’d never thought of the Chicago River as a romantic spot, especially during the day. It’s a beautiful waterway that meanders through some of the greatest architectural treasures in the country. It’s just not romantic. Until my lunch with Maggie Pierce.”

Get to know the professional and personal side of Matt Blake (quote) “It was Jimmy Escobedo, an old friend from college. Jimmy was nuts, in a good way. He was the funniest person I ever knew, and just seeing him made me laugh. He walked over to me, more like ran, and gave me a bear hug as I downed my next Scotch, almost spilling it. Jimmy was a character, the kind of guy who was a typical class clown. He was also bright as hell and had his choice of job offers after Northwestern. He looked good; except he was a lot skinnier than I remembered.”

With flawless writing skills the author creates the stage that brings the reader into the life of Matt Blake and into the ins and outs of personal injury litigation. Do you think that all personal injury lawyers are ambulance chasers?

I invite you to come see for yourself how personal injury law plays out in the courtroom. Follow multiple cases and the drama that will take your mind to places where it has never gone. Sideswiped is a face paced, realistic, suspenseful thriller and romantically touching. Your mind will envision every aspect like you are watching it unfold in a dark movie theater and your impressions of somethings will change forever.

Sideswiped is book one in Matt Blake Legal Thrillers (The Reformers-book two is coming soon). Also available The Gray Ship, The Thanksgiving Gang, A Time of Fear, and The Skies of Time (all four books in the Time Magnet series). The Shadows of Terror, The Scent of Revenge (books one and two in the Patterns Series).

I endorse Sideswiped: A Matt Blake Novel by Russell F. Moran. The author dedicates this book to the State and Government law enforcement community who dedicate their lives to keep us safe. BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: October 2, 2018.

The Reformers: Matt Blake Legal Thriller Series Book Two by Russell F. Moran

The forces of radical Islam are on the run.

Their leadership has been decimated, their ranks thinned, their power disappearing by the week.

Their recruiting efforts have been cut off, the radical websites shut down, and the attraction of jihad is losing its appeal among the young.

With targeted assassinations, military strikes, as well as the loss of oil fields and gold mines, radical Islam is fast losing power.

But who is responsible?

It isn’t the United States Government. It’s a new force the world has never seen before.

Lawyer Matt Blake and his wife Diana find themselves in the middle of the most gigantic plot the world has ever seen, a conspiracy that’s only begun to grow.

5 Star Review:  The Reformers might make you stand up and applaud or on second thought it might cause you to rethink history and even take our political climate seriously.

The Reformers follows Sideswiped in The Matt Blake Legal Thriller series but stands on its own with story-line and conclusions.

Matt Blake (ex-Marine) and Attorney at Blake & Randolph who is no stranger to pro bono clients first impression of his new client is “just met a lying scumbag. Not only is he a lying scumbag, but he’s a mass murderer, a lowlife piece of garbage.”

After an interview “He didn’t deny that the evidence exists. He didn’t try to shuck and jive away from it. He simply insists that he did not detonate the bomb, nor did he know anything about it. But here’s the weird part. Weird? Hell, it’s almost spooky. When I asked him why someone or some group would try to frame him, he clammed up. He actually told me that he wouldn’t talk about it. He simply told me not to go there. It’s obvious that he doesn’t want to address the question of why somebody would want to frame him.”

“But what about the 12-foot gorilla in the room in the room?” Diana (Matt’s wife) said, “The gorilla that wears a big bandanna that says ‘evidence’? So, the guy is a straight-shooting truth teller. Great. What about his prints, his DNA, and not to mention the video showing him next to the bomb?”

From here things go uphill, downhill and sideways and it seems the whole world goes to “H” in a hand basket. Never a dull moment in this thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat and questioning who is in charge, how does radical Islam, the moderates and the United States Government play into the pro bono case.

Another quote from the book. “What I’m about to tell you hasn’t been made public yet. I got this information from my inside people. Bartholomew and his NFL group have set up political organizations in all 50 states, including large paid operations in the big electoral states like California and Florida. For some reason, the press hasn’t caught on to this yet, or maybe they don’t think it’s important. These political organizations are not Democrat or Republican. It’s a third-party operation, called The Freedom from Terror Party.”

I dare you to read this thriller and not question what might be on the horizon. Author Russell F. Moran writes with a style and concepts a few steps ahead of our time.

I endorse The Reformers (The Matt Blake Legal Thriller Series Book 2) by Russell F. Moran because the fictional drama might not be fiction at all. BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: January 16, 2018.

The President Is Missing: Matt Blake Legal Thriller Series Book Three by Russell Moran

“What the hell just happened?” I asked Barbara Hightower, my assistant.

We were watching a TV first, a live broadcast by the President of the United States from a nuclear submarine deep under the waters of the South Atlantic. The President, Matt Blake, also happens to be my husband. Matt, dressed in naval officer’s fatigues, faced the camera holding a microphone. He looked great, but then he always does. Matt’s so natural in front of a camera, it’s as if the technology was invented for him. But the screen suddenly went blank.

“Beats me, ma’am,” Barbara said. “If we can’t maintain communications with a nuclear submarine, what the hell can we communicate with?”

President Matt Blake was addressing the nation from the USS Louisiana, a nuclear submarine submerged in the South Atlantic. His message is suddenly cut off. Nearby ships reported hearing an explosion. Aircraft reported floating debris five minutes later in the vicinity of the sub’s last known position.

The nation went into mourning for the loss of the popular president

First Lady Dee Blake has doubts, which she shares with naval high command and the new president. Her husband, a lawyer, always told her to distrust the evidence. She did more than distrust the evidence—she uncovered a massive conspiracy to hijack the submarine and kidnap the president. She thinks the explosion and the debris were a ruse to make people think the sub was destroyed, and her husband with it.

Could the sub have been hijacked and the president kidnapped?

But who would commit such an act? What is its purpose?

Was it Russia, China, Iran, or a shadowy group of freelance terrorists? One thing was certain: the plot had to include mutineers.

The new president, Roland Benton, agrees with Dee Blake’s suspicions, and sees himself as only an interim president. He appoints Dee as his Chief of Staff, with explicit instructions to find the missing submarine—and President Blake.

Dee finds the workings of a secretive group right in the United States, a group everyone had thought was destroyed.

Her life, and the life of the nation, suddenly take a horrifying turn.

The Time Magnet Series by Russell F. Moran

************************

The Gray Ship: The Time Magnet Series Book One by Russell F. Moran

In this stellar time-travel novel, a modern-American nuclear-powered cruiser sails through a time portal and goes back 152 years to the days just before the beginning of the Civil War.

The USS California, under the command of Capt. Ashley Patterson, an African-American woman, is headed toward Charleston, S.C., to participate in a ceremony commemorating the first battle of the Civil War: the bombardment of Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861. But before her ship reaches its destination, the massive cruiser—and its 630 crew members—travel through some sort of temporal wormhole and end up near the Charleston Harbor in 1861, just hours before the Confederate assault is about to begin.

After eventually wrapping her head around the fact that her entire crew has traveled back in time, Patterson realizes that she has some difficult decisions to make: Does she let history repeat itself and focus on trying to find a way back home, or does she use the military superiority of the California—“outfitted with enough fire power to unleash Biblical hell on an enemy”—to help end the war quickly and thus save the approximately 620,000 soldiers who would otherwise die in the next four years?

Powered by a cast of well-developed characters—Lincoln and Lee are among the prominently featured historical figures—consistently brisk pacing and a pulse-pounding (albeit slightly predictable) conclusion, the humanist themes of this novel are momentous and just as timely today as they were back in the 1860s.

This provocative, intensely powerful novel is a must-read for sci-fi fans and Civil War aficionados, though mainstream fiction readers will find it heart-rending and inspiring as well. A rare read that’s not only wildly entertaining, but also profoundly moving. Description Written by Kirkus Reviews: A Kirkus Best Indie Book of 2013.

5 Star Review: On the morning of April 10, 2013 the nuclear guided missile cruiser USS California left Norfork, Virginia heading toward Charleston, South Carolina. Once there the ship would anchor at Fort Sumter for a ceremony commemorating where the first battle of the Civil War took place on April 12, 1861. After the ceremony Captain Ashley Patterson would deploy her ship to the Persian Gulf, but as it turns out, time can be unpredictable.

Author Russell F. Moran like so many authors before him wrestles with science fiction and time travel to the extent of what would happen if we could go back into history and change just one event. He thanks his friends Bill Holland, Nick Wartella and his wife for their fresh perspective, input and editorial analyses. He also gives appreciation for invaluable technical input from his friend Lloyd (Hoss) Miller, Rear Admiral, Retired, United States Navy. Admiral Miller was the first commanding officer of the USS California, the ship that plays the pivotal role in the story. Admiral Miller makes a cameo appearance in the book as the strong leader, likeable person and gentleman that he is in real life.

The author is quick to point out that this is a work of fiction and with all fiction imagination plays a pivoting role. At the very start the reader is introduced by name to 55 major characters who bring the story of ‘The Gray Ship’ from the blue-green swells of the Atlantic Ocean through a port-hole (worm hole) that will not only change history, but tens of thousands of lives. His characters are realistic as with Captain Ashley Patterson while in her astute position wrestles with her own inner demons.

Who right now or in our future might want to go back in time to abolish war or the worse acts of humankind? When faced with the dilemma of being forced back through time into a dark period of American history, Captain Ashley Patterson and her crew had to risk mutiny or at the very least commit treason. If and when they could make it back to their own time, how would they be judged by friends, family, the military and the world? Who would believe their story?

One of my favorite quotes from the book reads, “Dr. Weinberg,” said Admiral Miller, “Do you believe these stories?” “It isn’t my job to believe stories or not to believe them, Admiral,” said Weinberg. “It’s my job to assess whether the witness believes his own story. But I will say this. I don’t know much about this time travel stuff, but ever since I worked on that book with Jack Thurber, I’ve noticed that I’ve developed an obsessive-compulsive disorder. I never step on a crack…it may be a wormhole.”

Reading ‘The Gray Ship’ has left me wanting to read this author’s other three books; A Time Of Fear, The Skies Of Time, and The Thanksgiving Gang.

I endorse The Gray Ship by Russell F. Moran as a science fiction, time travel story that will cause the thoughtful reader to ask what he or she might change if the opportunity presented itself? BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: February 21, 2015.

The Skies of Time: The Time Magnet Series Book Four by Russell F. Moran

The Skies of Time is a book about time travel, love, and commitment.

Newly promoted Admiral Ashley Patterson is on a public relations flight with her husband, author and Naval Reserve Lieutenant. The idea was dreamed up by the Pentagon to celebrate Ashley’s promotion as the youngest Navy admiral in American History. As happened before, they encounter a wormhole or time portal. Ashley calls Jack her “time magnet,” because he seems to have a talent for finding wormholes.

They’ve time travelled before, but this time it’s different – they encountered a time portal, or wormhole – in the sky.

They have a duty – to warn the authorities of the coming war.

They also have a duty to themselves. They want to return to their home, their home in 2016. But Franklin Roosevelt has different plans for them.

Their plane, an F-18, had a cockpit data recorder, a Black Box, which would give them the coordinates to find the wormhole and return home.

But, to their horror, they realize that 1940 technology cannot read the data on the Black Box. They’re stranded 76 years in the past.

Will they have to restart their lives from 1940 and never return home?

Or will they find a way to read the secrets of the box?

All they know is that they have an unfailing love for each other.

A nail biter of a tale in the spirit of the other books in The Time Magnet Series, The Gray Ship, The Thanksgiving Gang, and A Time of Fear.

The Keepers of Time: The Time Magnet Series Book Five by Russell F. Moran

Admiral Ashley Patterson and her husband Jack have done it again. They’ve traveled through time, 200 years into the future—aboard a nuclear aircraft carrier, Ashley’s flagship.

They discover a new world, a strange new world—a post-nuclear war world—one that is both a beacon of hope, and a cry of despair.

They meet a group of people who call themselves The Keepers of Time, an organization dedicated to preserving history and culture.

But the world around them has harkened back to a primitive and savage past, one that includes human sacrifice.

Ashley knows they have to have to get back to the present to warn the government of the unspeakable horrors that await.

But finding the way back to the present is their greatest challenge, an almost insurmountable one.

“A wild time travel yarn that starts fast and doesn’t slow down until the end.”

5 Star Review: Book five in the Time Magnet series is finally here with another great saga. The adventure begins on June 1, 2017, the day after Memorial Day. Carrier Strike Group 2311 departs the New York Harbor at 8:45 a.m. to begin a long deployment. Things are as they should be until “everything turned dark”.

Whether you have read book one through four in this series first or you are considering this book as your introduction to the series, let me say that each book has its own plot with a conclusion. I suggest you read The Gray Ship, The Thanksgiving Gang, A Time of Fear, and The Skies of Time at some point very soon. However, please feel free to jump in and read The Keepers of Time because you won’t be disappointed.

The author’s superb writing skills will quickly draw you into the story. Forty-two fast paced chapters will keep turning the pages of this novel until the end. Well-developed cast of realistic characters that you will relate to one will keep you engaged. One of my favorite things about Moran’s books is his entire cast of characters detailed in the back of the book. I admit to reading about the cast first in order to firmly get everyone in my mind. As a follower of his, I know each character is important to the plot and I don’t want to miss anything or overlook anyone.

Throughout history authors have taken us back in time and forward into the future. Those that take us into the future like Author Russell F. Moran are rare individuals who meticulously look at world history and real time world events to weave a story of unimaginable happenings. History shows that many of these fictional authors are correct in their assessments of the future. We must pay due vigilance to these authors so that their fiction does not become the world’s reality in the future.

I invite you to read The Keepers of Time: Book Five In The Time Magnet Series by Russell F. Moran and spend 15 days in an alternate universe. Meet the Keepers of Time and don’t forget to mark your calendar on April 12, 2018 as the day the world ended. One of my favorite quotes from the book is “Time flies when you’re scared out of your mind.”

I endorse The Keepers of Time: Book Five In The Time Magnet Series by Russell F. Moran as a science fiction, time travel story that will cause the thoughtful reader to look at the importance of current world events in a different perspective. BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: March 30, 2016.

The Scent of Revenge: Patterns Series Book Two by Russell F. Moran

The world is at war – World War III. FBI Agent Rick Bellamy and his wife, Ellen, find themselves in the middle of a sinister terror plot. Someone is attacking young prominent women, inflicting a horrible disease. Nobody knows its origin, nobody knows how to stop it, nobody knows how to cure it.

Rick Bellamy and a team of scientists want to go on offense. But how?

Will the lives of the women be changed forever?

When will the attacks stop?

5 Star Review: Although Science Fiction, The Scent of Revenge might be at America’s doorstep!

The main character Rick Bellamy is a FBI agent, head of counter-terrorism unit. The love of his life is 38-year-old Ellen Bellamy, Architect by day, lover and writer by night. Ellen’s beauty is more than skin deep as she radiates warmth and cares deeply about everyone who crosses her path.

With an impressive cast of characters that include William Reynolds who is President of the United States with his First Lady Amanda Reynolds standing by his side, he has just addresses the American People announcing that that World War III has begun.

A serious disease with symptoms of severe dementia, mimicking Alzheimer’s disease is attacking America’s Women. With research still seeking a cure for Alzheimer’s, the race is on and the questions commence. Why these particular women, why and how, and is the male population at risk?

Will President Reynolds be forced to suspend the right of habeas corpus? Do you know what this even means?

Heart pounding, can’t put down thriller that will force you to look at terrorism in different light. Life in America will never be the same.

Author Russell F. Moran is an exceptional story teller. As with all science fiction we hope it is not possible at least not within our lifetime. Moran’s futuristic thrillers (each book part of a series but stands alone) must be examined by each reader intelligently as they will lurk in the shadows of your mind well after the book is closed.

The Scent of Revenge “is dedicated to those who suffer from Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, and especially to their families who suffer along with them.”

I endorse The Scent of Revenge (book two in The Patterns Series) by Russell F. Moran The Shadows of Terror is book one. Also available The Gray Ship, The Thanksgiving Gang, A Time of Fear, and The Skies of Time (all four books in the Time Magnet Series). Another great read is Sideswiped which book one in Matt Blake Legal Thrillers with The Reformers coming soon. BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: October 3, 2015.

Leonardo Murphy (Coming of Age Thriller) by Russell F. Moran

You just launched a satellite into space without a rocket.

You took a $1,000 gift from your father and turned it into $1,600,000 in two years after you read a book on stock trading.

You invented a computer algorithm that writes novels.

You’ve just entered Harvard University on a full scholarship after completing high school in two years.

Not bad for a 12-year-old kid.

Leonardo Murphy, age 12, changed his name from William to Leonardo to honor his hero, Leonardo da Vinci. Young Leonardo, with the second highest IQ ever recorded, just launched a satellite into orbit using a helium balloon and a small jet engine he bought on eBay.

Among his many projects, he read books on stock trading. At age 10, he took a $1,000 gift from his father and turned it into $1,600,000 in two years.

Realizing that he could easily become an insufferable obnoxious brat, he heeded the words of his beloved great-grandfather, Ezekiel Murphy, who was also a genius. “Don’t be an a…hole,” grandpa Ezekiel told him. Leonardo always recalled those words—and tried to obey them.

At the urging of his father, a high-level FBI Agent, Leonardo is hired as a consultant to the FBI. Using his software design skills, Leonardo wrote an algorithm that tracked down the world’s most dangerous gang, MS-13, enabling the FBI and local law enforcement to end the gang’s activities.

Leonardo is fascinated by Artificial Intelligence. While a freshman at Harvard University, at age 12, he designed a computer program called Jane Austen, that could write 10 novels a month.

At age 20, Leonardo received a PhD in physics from Harvard. Shortly after that, he entered the Navy to follow in his parents’ footsteps as a naval officer.

After he left the Navy, Leonardo, now 25 years old, met a beautiful young woman named Janice Reynolds, and fell madly in love. They married a year later. By that time, Leonardo had become a fabulously wealthy multi-billionaire from his stock trading and patent royalties. Janice loves to teach at a nearby private college. When the college hits financial problems and is about to close, Leonardo buys the school.

Janice loved to say, “My husband used to be a cute little nerd. Now he’s a tall, handsome, rich nerd.” Janice and Leonardo, who she calls “Lee,” collaborate on various secret projects with the CIA and FBI.

But their activities with law enforcement and intelligence put a target on their backs. They narrowly escape four assassination attempts, including one on their honeymoon cruise. It was then that Leonardo discovers that his sweet, pretty wife knows how to use a gun.

Leonardo and Janice, despite the dangers, love to help law enforcement. They admit to themselves that they enjoy being spies, or spooks. They even bought a Golden Retriever and named her “Spook,” Whenever he’s hired as a consultant, Leonardo insists that Janice be included. “We’re a package deal, a twofer,” he would say to any official who objected to Janice working on top secret matters.

After one of their adventures, Leonardo looks forward to getting back to a normal life. But then he realizes that they don’t lead a normal life, so why bother.

Leonardo Murphy is a breathtakingly fast coming-of-age thriller about one of the most fascinating characters you will ever meet in literature. Instantly you are shoulder to shoulder with the world’s most amazing genius.

Grab your copy of this thriller now.

5 Star Review: Move over Doogie Howser. Twelve-year-old Leonardo Murphy’s IQ is 295, which makes him the second highest ever recorded. With an inquisitive mind, discipline of body and mind, life is about to carve out an extraordinary journey for this young man.

It is Leonardo’s grandfather’s final words to him, that creates a solid base for future thoughts, actions and outcomes.

With an early stock investment that leaves him financially set, after he read two books on stock trading. Leonardo uses sound judgement and doesn’t squander his money, knowledge or time. It is not long before the United States Government takes an interest in some of Leonardo’s math, language, computer and research skills, particularly his new algorithm design.

The government is quick to use Leonardo’s skills in many ways, directing his future education even while he is enrolled in Harvard at age twelve. Following this young man life is really cool. One quote I like: “When you’re 12 years old you can flirt with an adult woman and get away with it because grownups think it’s cute”.

Is it possible that young Leonardo Murphy’s life is in so much danger, because he is working with the United States Government, he might have to go into the Witness Protection Program?

As Leonardo grows to maturity and gets a PhD from Harvard at age 20, he decides to follow his parents’ footsteps and becomes a naval officer, where he receives a Silver Star for gallantry. After the Navy, he meets and marries a beautiful young woman. They embark on a series of adventures, all created by the amazing brain of Leonardo Murphy.

Those of you following the Harry and Meg Time Travel series and the Patterns Series might know what Bill Carlini is talking about.  “Buster, don’t you remember those weird terrorist attacks a few years ago,” Bill Carlini said. “What did we call it? Oh, yeah, The Scent of Revenge. A group of jihadis went around spraying a substance into people’s faces giving them symptoms just like Alzheimer’s.” Buster was sitting in Director Carlini’s office, telling him about Leonardo’s strange behavior. “I’m going to call that psychiatrist from New York, the guy who’s also a detective with the NYPD. Weinberg. Yeah, Dr. Benjamin Weinberg. He helped crack that Scent of Revenge case.”

This book is an exciting read. Leonardo is a unique character who brings an unusual prospective to the adult situations he encounters. The dangers are real for Leonardo and for the United States. The question has to cross the readers mind, can someone so young, so brilliant, so sought after, find balance and a chance for a normal life. Is there a chance for Leonardo to find true companionship? After all he has a solid understanding of family values afforded him through the grounding and upbringing that his two great parents gave him from the start.

Youth and a High IQ has its advantages.I am looking forward to even more encounters with Leonardo Murphy as the book series continues. BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: March 17, 2019.

A Climate Of Doubt (Action Fantasy Thriller) by Russell Moran

On a hot summer day, Homeland Security Secretary, Rick Bellamy, and his wife Ellen, a famous TV talk show host, walked along the ocean front trying to escape the heat. Suddenly the temperature dropped from the high 90s to below freezing in a matter of minutes. It began to snow—on July 16.

The temperatures across the country and the world plummeted, creating winter in summer.

Bellamy and the rest of the government struggled to cope with the suddenly new climate, but to cope, they first had to find out what happened.

Scientists from academia blamed the weather on a sudden acceleration of climate change, but they were unable to explain a 60-degree temperature drop in a matter of minutes.

Two astronauts in an American space station realized that the sudden weather calamity coincided with a test of the 20 satellites that the space station controlled.

Attention focused on a huge American corporation that owned the space station and the satellites. Could there be a connection between the satellite tests and the radical drop in temperature?

As the deaths piled up and the world economy tilted toward disaster because of gigantic summer blizzards, Rick Bellamy and his team struggled to find answers before it was too late. Was it a sudden shift in climate change or did it have something to do with the satellites? The biggest question remained—was the catastrophe an accident, or was somebody controlling the weather?

5 Star Review: Author Russell Moran has given us another thought-provoking action-adventure, science-fiction, fantasy-thriller and there is no better time to read A Climate of Doubt.

What will you do while vacationing with your spouse at your favorite summer resort and the outside temperature suddenly drops from 98 degrees down to 35 degrees within five minutes?

“Wolf Blitzer here for CNN, Well, the heat wave broke today, in a way nobody could have predicted. The current temperature in Central Park is 27 degrees. Across the nation, thermometers dropped over 60 degrees in less than an hour. The numbers are similar, not only across the country but across the world.

Get to know this long list of well-developed characters which include Rick Bellamy (Secretary if Homeland Security), Bartholomew Martin (46th President of the United States), along with VIPs from FBI, CIA, Meteorologists, Engineer, News Reporters, Astronauts and everyday world citizens thrown into chaos as this abrupt change in climate causes natural disasters and dire circumstances that the World Climate activists and Climate Change Deniers never could have predicted or even imagined.

When the climate suddenly free falls, fingers of speculation are quickly pointed at possible changes in our atmosphere (with all its many layers) —rogue governments like Iran and North Korea and a group who call themselves “Reformers”. With so many possibilities and so much fear; pressure is applied on the Rosetta Corporation because they own the American space station named Stargazer. What, if anything, could go wrong so far up in space?

You will keep turning the page as consequences to this sudden climate change are documented and you will need to know if this disaster is man-made or beyond human control. In any case, you will not want this fiction to become your reality.

I encourage you to read A Climate Of Doubt and all Author Russ Moran’s fourteen thrilling novels as we wait for his next science fiction mayhem to be released on an un-expecting global community. BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: July 1, 2018.

Robot Depot (Mystery, Thriller Suspense) by Russell F. Moran

Mike Bateman is a visionary businessman, the creator and CEO of the fabulously successful chain of stores, Robot Depot, a company dedicated to selling robots and Artificial Intelligence machines for a variety of uses.

The company is a darling of Wall Street and is the most popular destination for consumers and businesses looking for labor saving devices.

But the company caught the eye of ISIS, the terrorist Islamic State. They discover a great way to deliver bombs – using the products of Robot Depot to kill people.

Robot Depot changed from being a popular company to an object of fear because of the tampered products it sells. The terrorists use the company for “terror spectaculars,” including the destruction of a skyscraper, a drone attack on Yankee Stadium, and the bombing of a children’s sailing regatta.

Mike Bateman and the FBI are in a race to stop his products from becoming weapons, a race to stop the wanton killings. His wife and partner, Jenny, discovers the true meaning of terror one horrible summer day.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys crisp writing, thought-provoking topics and colorful characters. Well-done Mr. Moran.

5 Star Review: Robot Depot brings technology to a whole new level. If you are up on current world news you should have heard the media talking about how terrorists are experimenting with drones to terrorize people with biological chemical among just a few uses. You might also be wonder if a robot will replace your job in the near future. Author Russell F. Moran has taken robots one step further.

If you have read any of Russell F. Moran’s books, you don’t need me to tell you what a great story teller he is, and Robot Depot will not disappoint you.

Mike Bateman is founder and CEO of a wildly successful chain of 30 stores, in the US, called Robot Depot. As a 38-year-old war veteran, he has tapped into technology that will bring him greater success than Google, Microsoft, Uber, Roomba and others ever imagined. If you can imagine the chore, Mike has a robot to fit your needs.

Well-developed characters (some of whom you have come to know in Moran’s other books) take on the story line that the author weaves so well in a society that is fast adapting to and becoming reliant on robots.

If you worry about how secure your WiFi in your home is, imagine a world where you never know if you are speaking to a robot or a human. What could possibly go wrong?

I invite you to read this futuristic story where the bad guys seem to stay ahead of the good guys and it falls on inventor Mike Bateman to stop the terror. Heart pounding, page turning drama that will cause you pause when you enter into the electronics’ department for your next techno fix.

I endorse Robot Depot by Russell F. Moran. The author dedicates this book to the inventors of the world. BMGN/Cold Coffee Review Date: November 14, 2018.

A Reunion In Time: A Rick Bellamy Time Travel Book by Russell F. Moran

What if a 37-year-old adult travels back 20 years in time and finds himself in high school, followed by his 36-year-old wife? They’re now teenagers, 17 and 16.

Adults in teenage bodies, they struggle to convince the people from their past that they are real, not apparitions. With the benefit of hindsight, they know the history of the past 20 years, and it isn’t pretty.

Rick and Ellen are married, and now have to adjust to married life as teenagers in 2001. Rick is a senior FBI official and Ellen is a famous architect.

But everybody sees them as kids. Nobody believes that they’re married, and nobody believes their stories—until Rick and Ellen predict 9/11.

How do they find their way back to the year they came from? How do they warn the authorities of the cataclysm that will occur in the future?

The answer is to find the time portal—the wormhole—that brought them to 2001. But the site has changed. It’s no longer the place where they crossed the wormhole. Will they live out the balance of their lives beginning as teenagers?

Justice In America: How It Works – How It Fails by Russell Moran

From Kirkus Review: The goddess of justice is blind—and deaf and very often dumb—according to this savvy critique of the American legal system.

Moran, a lawyer, journalist and founding editor of The New York Jury Verdict Reporter, knows firsthand the problems that plague American jurisprudence, and isn’t afraid to point fingers. Topping his rogue’s gallery are “incompetent idiots” on the bench, including justices of the peace who don’t even need a high-school diploma to throw people in jail and trial judges who fall asleep during testimony. (And no, that won’t get your conviction overturned, Moran notes, unless you can prove the judge slept through something important.)

Then there are the personal injury lawyers who cast about for deep pockets to sue no matter how dubious the liability, the attorneys who rake in millions from class-action suits that net their “clients” a few dollars each, the jurors—like Moran’s uncle—who base verdicts on off-the-wall theories instead of the evidence, the legislators who craft stupid laws and Supreme Court justices who uphold them based on tortured readings of the Interstate Commerce Clause. (Not always in contempt of court, Moran does allow that, often enough, judges are underpaid and conscientious, lawyers careful and upright, and malpractice suits well-founded.) The author sets his indictment against a lucid outline of basic legal concepts and court procedures and nuanced discussions of everything from the propriety of electing judges to the mortgage-foreclosure robo-signing scandals.

Moran writes in an entertaining, wised-up style, his punchy prose laced with black humor and an inexhaustible supply of anecdotes. His free-wheeling arguments shade from law into politics and beyond, as he enters a sweeping condemnation of a litigious society bound up in red tape because of liability fears, takes swipes at the New Deal regulatory state and even throws soup at snooty French waiters. It’s a bit over-stuffed, but Moran’s street-cred, irreverent wit and gift for translating legal arcana into laymen’s terms make for a persuasive brief.

A lively, brash, illuminating insider’s look at the law, by a compelling expert witness.

Your Business Plan – That You Carry in Your Head: The APT Principle by Russell F. Moran

To start or run a business without a business plan is like taking a ship to sea without plotting a course: either one can end in disaster. The APT Principle: The Business Plan That You Carry in Your Head plots your course for a safe and successful voyage. It is a diagnostic toolbox that enables you to conceive, write, and most important, to stick to a business plan. Too many business owners put off writing a plan because they think the process is too complicated. Even those who have written a plan often file it, never to be seen again. This is the phenomenon of business plan avoidance and it leads to the sorry spectacle of an organization that lurches from one crisis to another.

The APT Principle tackles this problem – lack of a plan or ignoring a plan – and inserts into the process the most important missing element: a paperless set of guidelines that you always carry with you – in your head. It is a set of tools that breathes life into your business plan.

Conversational in tone and laced with humor, The APT Principle is written by a businessman and lawyer, who has started and sold successful businesses. APT stands for Attitudes, Practices, and Technology. According to Moran, everything – EVERYTHING – that happens to a business, both good and bad, is a function of one of these three things.

The Psychic Dimension: Part One by Jay Dubya

The twenty-six novellas presented in The Psychic Dimension are works of pure fiction. The stories’ themes deal with various types of psychic and paranormal experiences. Any character resemblance to anyone living on Planet Earth is positively coincidental. In addition, any fictional setting scenario is also coincidental.

The Psychic Dimension is author Jay Dubya’s 44th published hardcover/paperback book. Other story collections by this prolific author are Snake Eyes and Boxcars, Snake Eyes and Boxcars, Part II, Suite 16, One Baker’s Dozen, Two Baker’s Dozen, RAM: Random Articles and Manuscripts, Pieces of Eight, Pieces of Eight, Part II, Pieces of Eight, Part III, Pieces of Eight, Part IV, Nine New Novellas, Nine New Novellas, Part II, Nine New Novellas, Part III and Nine New Novellas, Part IV, Time Travel Tales and Prime-Time Crime Time.

5 Star Review: The Psychic Dimension (Part One) are a group of very well written short stories that deal with fictional psychic and paranormal experiences.

Author John Dubya has divided this book into 26 novellas. Let me briefly describe five of them.

Corporate Sabotage: “Three government men were casually discussing the amusing theory that their boss Chief Inspector Joe Giralo was indeed one hundred percent psychic, or perhaps one hundred percent “psycho.” But as the trio would soon discover, the astonishing case of “Corporate Sabotage” virtually confirmed their suspicions about their boss’s seemingly paranormal cerebrum.”

Music Psyche: “It has often been said that music soothes the soul, but Dr. Thaddeus Gilmore, eminent professor of Psychology/Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania, recently found-out through a revolutionary research breakthrough

The Table Drawer: “Where did you get that weird table that’s now up in the computer room? It looks like it was obsolete decades before John Wilkes Booth had entered Fords Theater and evilly assassinated President Lincoln!”

A Day to Forget: “A Day to Forget: Ever since adolescence, Jack Cooper hated anything associated with frivolity and revelry. The shy man didn’t like football games because of boisterous crowds, deplored raucous celebrating, and despised rock and roll along with rap music, and the man vastly abhorred obnoxious, irritating behavior at New Year’s Eve parties. Anything noisy from Fourth of July and Halloween parades to carnival and circus atmospheres greatly disturbed Jack’s super-sensitive psyche and sent his volatile emotions completely out of kilter. The only things that the “mercurial man” really dearly loved were peace and quiet.”

Each story is independent from each other which makes this the perfect book to carry with you to read on the go. For the sake of this review, let me focus on two stories.

In the story of Triple Jeopardy, Inspector Joe Giralo and his wife Gina go on a senior citizen’s bus tour. Their first stop is at the Michigan Grand Hotel, where their vacation takes an unexpected turn. Let me quote:

At nine-thirty a loud frantic rapping upon Room 132’s door rudely interrupted Joe Giralo’s peaceful coffee consumption. The FBI man opened the portal and the occupant was somewhat astonished to perceive the normally debonair suit-and-tie head hotel manager impatiently standing in the hallway.

“Mr. Giralo,” the exasperated hotel executive exclaimed all out of breath. “I’m Giles Martin, the Grand Michigan’s chief operating officer. May I come in?”

“Why of course!” the surprised Inspector replied, closing the door behind the unexpected visitor’s hasty entrance. “Is everything okay? You do appear to be more than a trifle alarmed!”

“I understand that you’re an experienced inspector with the FBI. Our dependable desk records indicate that much, Inspector Giralo, and I’ve already verified that formerly confidential information through our local island police department, which incidentally also drastically needs your immediate assistance.”

“Mr. Martin, in all due respect, exactly what is wrong?” the now thoroughly interested hotel guest asked. “What’s of so much paramount importance and concern?”

“A most serious epidemic of colossal proportion has broken-out among the horse population here on Mackinac Island,” panic-stricken Giles Martin boisterously disclosed. “Just about all of our six hundred horses are terribly sick with colic and influenza symptoms, and our town veterinarians are going crazy attending to all of the afflicted animals. And besides that,” the agitated and worried hotel manager impulsively expounded, “the entire transportation system on the island has been shut-down. This is a colossal nightmare dilemma in progress Inspector Giralo; an unimaginable worst-case scenario and its basic origin, or should I say ‘its real cause,’ we certainly find exceptionally baffling. That’s why I’m here to both request and solicit your skilled expertise.”

Inspector Giralo’s experience and instincts are aroused and it looks like their vacation might be interrupted. To see what happens, pick up this book.

Now let me share a small portion of the short story Contemporary Illuminati.

Aunt Genevieve had revealed to my mother on several occasions that I had been her favorite nephew, and so I always believed that I was in competition for a massive inheritance with my adversarial cousins David and Stephen Wilson, who both perceptibly appeared to be artificially cordial towards me at venerable Aunt Jenny’s Baltimore wake and funeral that had been held in early May of 1992. A full month later, I received a legal letter from Otto Hernandez, Esquire, informing me that I was to attend a meeting for the purpose of the “Disposition of Mrs. Genevieve Curtis’s Will”, and the family conference was scheduled to occur in downtown Baltimore at 11 a.m. sharp on Wednesday, July 1st. Naturally, from previous conversations with my mother, I was quite excited about the prospect of being the principal heir to Aunt Genevieve’s rather lucrative estate.

Flash forward: The lawyer next opened the louvered brown door and removed a five-foot-high, antique-looking, standing lamp from inside the dark enclosure, which he then gracefully carried with both hands over to his huge mahogany desk. “This Sir is what your deceased Aunt Genevieve wishes for you to have,” the suave-but-encumbered estates’ lawyer quite diplomatically and almost-apologetically communicated. “Mrs. Curtis declares and directs in her last will and testament that you should amply admire and appreciate this marvelous, extraordinary lamp of Egyptian design, especially the unique brass head of Queen Nerfertiti that’s now conspicuously ornamenting the lamp’s exquisite canopy.” I momentarily glanced to my left and incidentally observed that my three cousin companions were alternately snickering and chuckling at my rather peculiar inheritance, and even Mr. Otto Hernandez seemed quite out-of-character being amused at my unexpected gift that I had traveled 110 miles from Hammonton, New Jersey to gratefully acquire.

Why did Aunt Genevieve leave John this ornate lamp? Was the gesture a cruel joke or was it something more? If you always wanted your long-lost great aunt to leave you something in her Last Will and Testimony, this story may or may not change your mind.

With each story comes an internal struggle where there are decisions to made and consequences. Each one of these stories could be their own book in their own rights. I hope you find these Novellas as interesting a read as I did. BMGN Review Date: April 29, 2019.

Satire/Parodies, Adult by Jay Dubya

Hawthorne: Hacked, Shakespeare: Sacked & Thurber:
Thwacked by Jay Dubya

Hawthorne Hacked, Shakespeare Sacked & Thurber Thwacked is a cleverly-organized book that effectively satirizes some of the main works of Nathaniel Hawthorne, of William Shakespeare and of American humorist James Thurber, and the creative compilation is author Jay Dubya’s 52nd published hardcover/paperback publication. In the Nathaniel Hawthorne section, Jay Dubya aggressively attacks the early 19th Century writer’s famous short stories “The Great Stone Face,” “The Minister’s Black Veil,” “Rappaccini’s Daughter,” “Feathertop,” “The Three Golden Apples” and finally, “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment.” In the William Shakespeare segment, the renowned English bard’s classic plays “The Tempest,” “Macbeth,” “Hamlet” and “The Merchant of Venice” are rather hilariously clobbered and quite thoroughly corrupted. And finally, in the concluding James Thurber portion, the U.S. author’s notorious short stories “The Catbird Seat,” “A Couple of Hamburgers,” “The Night the Bed Fell,” “Tales with a Twist,” “The Dog That Bit People” and “The Secret Life of Walter Witty” are imaginatively rewritten and given entirely new adult-style, bawdy spins.

The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me by Jay Dubya

The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me (Deuteronomy), featuring adult language and content, is a satire/parody of the fifth book of the Old Testament.

Deuteronomy describes the establishment of the laws of ancient Israel, the many conflicts with already existing civilizations Moses and the Israelites had encountered on their flight from Egypt in quest of the “Promised Land”, and the eventual transfer of power and authority from Moses to Joshua prior to the aged prophet’s death. The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me completes the Biblical trilogy that includes The Wholly Book of Genesis and The Wholly Book of Exodus.

A young Arab terrorist named Mohammed Kareem Jihad had made a great discovery of ancient papyrus writings inside a secluded limestone cave. The violent lad brought the scrolls into Jericho where he traded the documents to Professor Phil Collins (an expert on Genesis) and Dr. Allen Qaeda (an authority on Exodus) for an old AK-47, two slightly used hand grenades and some cheap American cigarettes.

For over a full decade after 2002, I had believed that only The Wholly Book of Genesis and The Wholly Book of Exodus had existed in the treasured computer e-mail file I had received from Uncle Phil, since a long blank void had appeared thereafter. But last month out of sheer boredom I ran the file to its end and remarkably discovered the fifth book of the Old Testament Pentateuch, The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me. Apparently, book three titled The Wholly Book of Numbers along with book #four The Wholly Book of Leviticus had somehow been accidentally erased in the e-mailed computer file.

Now that the essential background of The Wholly Book of Genesis, The Wholly Book of Exodus (along with the tampered-with computer file containing The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me) is fully known, only the astute readers can be the best judges of the merits of Mohammed Kareem Jihad’s remarkable discovery and of now-deceased Uncle Phil Collins’ exceptional Biblical claims.

Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces by Jay Dubja

Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces is adult literature that satirizes classic children’s folk tales, fables and fairy tales into more mature presentations featuring adult language, content and humor.

Jay Dubya thoroughly corrupts “The Three Little Piglet Brothers,” “The Flashing Elves,” “The Golden Goose’s Goosing Curse,” “The Notorious Sleeping Beauty” and “Petite Red Riding Hood.” Other classic stories that are not saved from degeneration are “Jack’s Magnificent Beanstalk,” “Hansel and Gretel Dumkoff,” “Little Ebony Sambo,” “Rapunzel’s Draping Hair” and “Tom Thumb’s History.” Finally, the author completely corrupts into adult parody rewrites “Peter W. and the Wolf,” “The Rumpelstiltskin No-Spin Zone,” “Beauty and the Beastly Beast,” “Cinderella’s Fella” and the classic folktale “Flaky Snow White and the Seven Midgdwarfs.”

Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces is Jay Dubya’s twenty-first e-book. This book is definitely not written for or to be read by children.

Thirteen Sick Tasteless Classics, Part V by Jay Dubya

Thirteen Sick Tasteless Classics, Part V is humorous adult literature featuring adult content and language.

The work satirizes and spoofs thirteen classic tales from U.S. and British literature, along with popular stories from Greek mythology, the Bible and also well-known fairy tales.

Henry’s “The Green Door,” Mark Twain’s “Punch, Brothers, Punch” and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment” are thoroughly degenerated.

Lawrence’s “The Rocking Horse Winner and William Shakespeare’s famous play “All’s Well That Ends Well” all being wickedly attacked and parodied.

Finally, ancient Greek and Biblical stories along with several popular fairy tales are brutally assaulted with satirical rewrites of “An Excerpt from the Book of Exodus,” “King Midas,” “The Gay Tailor Who Became King” and “The Notorious Sleeping Beauty” each being wildly clobbered and slickly degraded.

Non-Fiction Books by Jay Dubya

First Person Stories by Jay Dubya

First Person Stories is a collection of forty writings, twenty-four being fictional tales and sixteen being of the non-fiction variety, and the effort is Jay Dubya’s 49th published book.

Some of the works included in First Person Stories are writings taken from other already published Jay Dubya fiction and non-fiction books. The first-person writing technique is particularly difficult in literary expression, especially when writing fiction, because the author must continually use the pronouns “I, me, my and mine” over and over, and there’s always a danger of communicating a sense of monotony and boredom to the reader. This is why most fiction is written in the third person, the author utilizing the more functional pronouns “he, she, you, they and we.”

Three types of non-fiction writing represented in First Person Stories are autobiography, humor and the essay point of view structure, which is often used in newspaper journalism and always found on the publication’s editorial page.

RAM: Random Articles and Manuscripts by Jay Dubya

Articles range from biographical sketches to the author’s humorous adventures, and the manuscript section is dedicated to the writer’s observations about matters that run the modern-day social spectrum from the Iraq War to inherent problems associated with American society.

Some of the articles in this work originally appeared in the Hammonton (New Jersey) Gazette and in the Hammonton News. In the “Articles” section of the book, accounts recalling the writer’s personal memories of certain people are represented in the stories “A Young James Bertino,” “Mr. Charles B. Sipley” and “Little League Baseball.” Humorous experiences are recounted in “A Tale of Two Counties,” “Misadventures in Furnitureland” and “Catty Cat Catching.” The author’s youth is recollected in the renditions “Growing-up in Hammonton” and Dogwood Hollow: 1954-’55. And incidents from Jay Dubya’s thirty-four-year teaching career are described in “School Assemblies,” “Williamsburg School Trips” and “The High School Faculty.” In the “Manuscripts” section, such essay subjects as “Rap Music Is Not Music,” “Why Jimmy Brown Doesn’t Write” and “Multicultural Education” are skillfully presented.

Other thoughtful essays are also included with “Freedom Isn’t Free,” American Education Is Wasteful and “The Trouble with American Democracy. The creative work “Gerunds, Verbals and Participial Adjectives” is a zany effort that pokes fun at the complexity and diversity of the English language and its complicated grammar usage.

Short Stories/Parodies, Adult by Jay Dubya

Twain: Tattered, Trounced, Tortured and Traumatized by Jay Dubya

Twain: Tattered, Trounced, Tortured and Traumatized is a unique collection of twenty classic Mark Twain short stories and anecdotal sketches that have been creatively rewritten and satirized into adult parody form featuring adult content and language.

When author Jay Dubya was a New Jersey public school English teacher, he often enjoyed teaching and reading Mark Twain’s “influential literature” to his sometimes-enlightened middle and high school academic students. Remarkably, Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910) was both born and died the same years that Halley’s Comet had made its seventy-five-year revolution around the solar system.

Clemens acquired his pen name “Mark Twain” from Mississippi River steamboat terminology of “twain” being a water depth of two fathoms (twelve feet), the allowable safe level for a riverboat to navigate over a reef or shoal, and the depth was measured by a leadsman who threw a heavy lead weight overboard and then after lifting it out of the river, would mark the twain. Clemens became a successful riverboat pilot under the direction of a captain named Horace Bixby, but after the Civil War broke out, the Mississippi River was closed down to commercial traffic. Being unemployed, Sam Clemens journeyed out west to try his hand at gold prospecting in Nevada and then at newspaper journalism in California. The writer gained international recognition with the publication of his classic humorous short story “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” first published in 1865.

Mark Twain is generally regarded as a humorist but he is also understood by literary critics as being a serious philosopher and an astute analyzer of the antebellum and post Civil War American society of his time. Twain’s most famous novels are The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Prince and the Pauper and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. Other important Mark Twain works are the books: Roughing It, Life on the Mississippi and Innocents Abroad, and some short literary sketches from the last mentioned three books have been used in organizing this outrageous satire/parody.

Twain: Tattered, Trounced, Tortured and Traumatized is author Jay Dubya’s thirty-sixth published book.

Poe: Pelted, Pounded, Pummeled and Pulverized by Jay Dubya

Poe: Pelted, Pounded, Pummeled and Pulverized is a unique collection of eighteen classic Edgar Allan Poe short stories that have been creatively rewritten and satirized into adult parody form featuring adult content and language, and the work is the thirty-fifth book of author Jay Dubya (John Weissner).

When Jay Dubya was a New Jersey public school English teacher, during his thirty-four-year classroom career, he often enjoyed teaching and reading the influential literature of Edgar Allen Poe to his sometimes-enlightened middle and high school students.

Even though Poe (1809-1849) had died at a very young age, he still managed, remarkably, to write and publish more than nine-hundred pages of imaginative short stories and awe-inspiring poems. In addition to being a superb writer, Poe was also an excellent editor and literary critic, and is widely regarded as one of the most important authors in American literature. The now-esteemed writer is often referred to as “the father of the American short story” and as “the inventor of the detective story.” Edgar married his thirteen-year-old cousin Virginia Clemm and made a very modest living as a writer and as a newspaper journalist. Poe had a nasty temper, took drugs as painkillers, and because of his mercurial disposition was unable to keep a job for any length of time. In 1847 Virginia died of tuberculosis and Poe, underfed, pale and gaunt-looking, passed away two years later. Poe’s detective stories “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Purloined Letter” made him famous in addition to his classic horror tales The Pit and the Pendulum, “The Masque of the Red Death,” The Cask of Amontillado, and the popular but eerie epic “The Tell Tale Heart.”

O. Henry: Obscenely and Outrageously Obliterated by Jay Dubya

O. Henry: Obscenely and Outrageously Obliterated is a collection of eighteen classic William Sidney Porter “surprise ending” short stories/novellas that have been imaginatively rewritten and satirized into adult parody form featuring adult content and language.

This extremely humorous book is author’ Jay Dubya’s 34th published work. When the writer was a New Jersey public school English teacher for thirty-four years, he often enjoyed teaching and reading O. Henry’s “influential literature” with his sometimes-enlightened middle and high school students. Even though O. Henry (1862-1910) had died at a very young age, he still managed to remarkably write over five hundred short stories and anecdotal sketches.

W.S. Porter’s fiction often occurs in familiar U.S. environments and settings that he had known well during his short tenure on this planet, particularly New York City, Southern Texas, the mountains of Tennessee, Central America and the post Civil War American South. Most interestingly, many of O. Henry’s terrific short stories were authored while he was in jail. In 1892 Porter moved to Texas and soon became a teller at an Austin bank where the institution’s officials accused him of illegally manipulating funds into his own account. Porter fled to Central America but upon returning to the states after his wife became very ill, the on-the-lam short story author was captured and then convicted.

Thus, one of O. Henry’s most famous stories “A Retrieved Reformation” involves safecracker Jimmy Valentine getting out of prison and in a geographical sense, the writer’s humorous stories “Shoes” and Shoes and Ships both take place in Coralio, an imaginary seacoast village in Central America. It is widely believed that the unique writing name O. Henry had been conceived in honor of a certain security guard named Orrin Henry, who had been employed at the federal penitentiary where the literary genius William Sidney Porter had been serving his bank felony sentence.

London: Lashed, Lacerated, Lampooned and Lambasted by Jay Dubya

London: Lashed, Lacerated, Lampooned and Lambasted is a unique collection of eighteen classic Jack London short stories that have been creatively rewritten and satirized into adult parody form featuring adult content and language.

When author Jay Dubya was a New Jersey public school English teacher, he often enjoyed teaching and reading Jack London’s “influential literature” to his sometimes-enlightened academic students. Jack London (1876-1916) died at the early age of forty but the author left behind a rich collection of literature still read and admired today.

London was a master at the literary writing technique known as Realism where he skillfully describes struggles and life-or-death situations pitting man against man, man against hostile environments and often man against himself. Jack London was born in San Francisco and helped to support his family at age fourteen, dropping out of school to do so. Spending plenty of time in city libraries, London was a voracious reader who studied hard and eventually passed the entrance examination into the University of California. He stayed as a student for one semester but then went to work as a sailor and a laborer. During the Gold Rush of 1897 London spent a year in the Klondike and Yukon territories where he gathered material and information about interesting characters that later would appear in his novels and short stories.

Very fascinated by the Darwinian theory of “survival of the fittest,” many of Jack London’s works focused on the endurance of strong men driven by atavistic instincts and primitive emotions. The settings of most Jack London stories are in California, the Klondike/Yukon regions of Canada and the South Sea Pacific islands in and around Tahiti. London graphically described the great San Francisco Earthquake of April 18th, 1906 in his newspaper account The Story of An Eyewitness, and two other stories in this collection take place in California. Twelve of the eighteen satirized tales in this London: Lashed, Lacerated, Lampooned and Lambasted work occur in the Yukon/Klondike territories, and the remaining three stories are set in the South Pacific islands in and around Tahiti. London: Lashed, Lampooned, Lacerated and Lambasted is author Jay Dubya’s thirty-seventh published book.

Mauled Maimed Mangled Mutilated Mythology by Jay Dubya

Mauled Maimed Mangled Mutilated Mythology is adult literature that satirizes twenty-one classic mythology stories into more mature presentations featuring adult language, content and humor.

Author Jay Dubya goes right to work retelling adult renditions of female myths Pandora, Ceres Goes Against the Grain and Echo’s Cursing Curse. Other famous adventure myths that are thoroughly pulverized and clobbered are Bellerophon’s Marathon Adventure, Theseus and the Minotaur, Perseus and Medusa, Osysseus and the Cyclops and Jason and the Golden Fleecers.

Male hero and vanity/punishment myths are also imaginatively assaulted and mercilessly converted into adult versions as in the cases of Prometheus and Fire, The Three Golden Apples, Oedipus, King Midas and Orpheus.

Other stories that are not saved from degeneration are the author’s humorous original tales Olympus Lives and also Colliding Myths, where Jay Dubya combines the popular stories of Phaethon and the classic Daedalus and Icarus. Love myths are also hammered with novel presentations of Baucis and Philemon, Psyche and Stupid Cupid along with Atalanta’s Last Race.

Finally, Norse mythology is not spared from total degeneration with a very amusing retelling of Beowulf and Arabian literature is also assaulted with a creative presentation of The Fourth Voyage of Sindbad. Mauled Maimed Mangled Mutilated Mythologyis exclusively adult satirical literature that is definitely not written for or to be read by children.

Adult Satire by Jay Dubya

PLOTS by Jay Dubya

Plots is a Jay Dubya acronym that represents a compilation of certain famous works by authors Edgar Allan Poe, Jack London, O. Henry, Mark Twain and William Shakespeare. Every good story indeed has a plot, or an essential problem (or problems) that must be solved. The problem can either be a direct physical threat or an imagined mental/emotional crisis existing within the main character’s mind, or perhaps the problem is represented by various combinations of those separate elements. In any case, the main problem must be addressed and/or especially solved during the story.

The particular stories selected by the author have been uniquely corrupted and then creatively rewritten into adult satirical style where Jay Dubya effectively uses adult language and situations, thus adroitly modifying the general integrity of the original works.

Ron Coyote, Man of La Mangia by Jay Dubya

Ron Coyote, Man of La Mangia is a funny and irreverent satire/parody on Miguel Cervantes/ Don Quixote, published in 1605.

Jay Dubya assumes the writing role of Sir Vantes. In the novel Jay Dubya uses over two dozen parallels between the Coyote and Quixote’ sagas. Ron Coyote is a wealthy peach and apple farmer. His trusty main foreman is Pancho Sanza. Coyote is the ideal dreamer out to change the world and Sanza is the practical hedonistic rascal quite happy with the way the world is dysfunctioning.

Ron Coyote comes under the influence of Calvin Mather, a televangelist who preaches that America should return to the moral values of its Puritan’ Founding Fathers. As a joke, Pancho buys Ron Coyote a Pilgrim suit, and soon the Man of La Mangia believes that he is a contemporary Pilgrim assigned by Heaven to save America from sin, crime and decadence.

Ron Coyote has a black ’38 Plymouth appropriately named Roachinante, a WWI vintage biplane Roachinante II, a stubborn mule called Clinton and a pig named Madonna. Ron Coyote dedicates his great quest to Della Cinnea, an obese school-crossing guard. As incentive for Pancho to accompany him, Ron Coyote promises Sanza a new shack with a flush toilet, and Pancho goes along with his employer because Sanza’s wife threatens him with castration if she doesn’t soon get indoor plumbing and modern sanitary facilities.

Ron Coyote and Pancho Sanza have many extraordinary adventures with the IRS, rowdy teenagers, tramps, Arab terrorists, the U.S. Army, cannibals, gays, the Mafia, motorcycle gangs, Della Cinnea, convicts, Russians and with Calvin Mather. Ron Coyote, Man of La Mangia is an adult novel that features adult language and situations. It is philosophical, risque, humorous and satirical.

Ron Coyote is adult entertainment, and it is not a book for the moral majority, for the politically correct or for children.

Hawthorne: Hazed Hooked Hammered & Hijacked by Jay Dubya

Hawthorne: Hazed Hooked Hammered and Hijacked is a collection of twelve Nathaniel Hawthorne classic novellas that have been creatively rewritten and satirized into adult parody form featuring adult content and language.

When author Jay Dubya had been a New Jersey public school English teacher, he often enjoyed reading and discussing Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “influential literature” with his sometimes enlightened middle and high school academic students.

For many years Nathaniel Hawthorne had attempted to become an established popular fiction writer. After a decent New England college education, Hawthorne soon returned to familiar Salem, Massachusetts where the aspiring author lived with his mother and sisters for twelve years, staying secluded in a lonely room writing short stories and novel manuscripts.

In 1837, his first work titled Twice-Told Tales was successfully published. Hawthorne was chummy with some of the more famous New England literary writers of his time including Herman Melville, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Two of Hawthorne’s better known works are novels The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables. “Young Goodman Brown,” The Great Stone Face and “Rappaccini’s Daughter” are three of the author’s best known short stories.

Most of Hawthorne’s retelling of classic stories from mythology had been published in his work Tanglewood Tales. Another famous Nathaniel Hawthorne short story collection is Twice Told Tales, which includes the selections “The Minister’s Black Veil,” “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment” and The Great Carbuncle.

Hawthorne: Hazed, Hooked, Hammered & Hijacked is Jay Dubya’s forty-eighth published hardcover/paperback book. The author’s works also exist in Kindle, Nook and Smashwords e-book formats. The pseudonym Jay Dubya is a corruption of John Wiessner’s initials “J.W.” John is married to wife Joanne and the couple has three grown sons. John and Joanne currently live in Hammonton, NJ, USA.

Book Review by Penelope
5.0 out of 5 stars
A must read!!
August 16, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This book is excellent.

It’s about teen gangs in 1960 – the Blues (kids from blueberry farmers) and the Reds (kids from peach farmers) and what they experience in their youth.

The Blues’s symbol is a blue denim jacket, the Reds’s symbol a red James-Dean jacket. Every gang has 24 members and those teens are involved in “The Great Teen Fruit War”.

It starts with pranks and tricks they play on each other – but every time one gang wants to get even with the other gang and so the pranks not only get more creative but also more dangerous – until it just has to end in a big fight (that’s not the ending of the story) 😉

But this story is not only about two gangs who fight each other – it is also about moral, romance, racism, the influence people have over each other and so much more.

Jay Dubya (John Wiessner), author of 56 books, gives a biography of his life.

Born in Hammonton, NJ in 1942, John had attended St. Joseph School up to and including Grade 5. After his family moved from Hammonton to Levittown, Pa in 1954, John attended St. Mark School in Bristol, Pa. for Grade 6, St. Michael the Archangel School for Grades 7 and 8 and Immaculate Conception School, Levittown, Pa. for grade 9. Bishop Egan High School, Levittown Pa was John’s educational base for Grades 10 and 11, and later in 1960 he graduated from Edgewood Regional High, Tansboro, NJ. John then next attended Glassboro State College, where he was an announcer for the school’s baseball games and also read the news and sports over WGLS, GSC’s radio station.

John had been primarily an English teacher in the Hammonton Public School System for 34 years, specializing in the instruction of middle school language arts. Mr. Wiessner was quite active in the Hammonton Education Association, serving in the capacities of Vice-President, building representative and finally, teachers’ head negotiator for 7 years. During his lengthy teaching career, John had been nominated into “Who’s Who Among American Teachers” three times. He also was quite active giving professional workshops at schools around South Jersey on the subjects of creative writing and the use of movie videos to motivate students to organize their classroom theme compositions.

John Wiessner was very active in community service, being a past President of the Hammonton Lions Club, where he also functioned for many years as the club’s Tail-Twister, Vice-President and Liontamer. He had been named Hammonton Lion of the Year in 1979 and in 2009 received the prestigious Melvin Jones Fellow Award, the highest honor a Lion can receive from Lions International.

John also was a successful businessman, starting with being a Philadelphia Bulletin newspaper delivery boy for two years in the late 1950s in Levittown, Pennsylvania. After his family moved back to New Jersey in 1959, John worked at his grandparents and his parents’ farm markets, Square Deal Farm (now Ron’s Gardens in Hammonton) and Pete’s Farm Market in Elm, respectively. He later managed his wife’s parents’ farm market, White Horse Farms (Elm) for three summers.

Tezcatlipoca: The Smoking Mirror (Feathered Serpents Volume 2) by Joyce Keller Walsh

Police Chief Sebastian Calderón has left Cape Cod for Mexico to track the fugitive bioengineers of an illegal Quetzalcoatl. His only source of information is the mysterious Tezca, a woman he doesn’t trust.

During his investigation, he is ambushed, rendered unconscious, and awakens to find himself trapped in a stone chamber. No one knows where he is, neither his daughter in Paris, nor his Deputy back home—who is pursuing a lead that will take him to a fateful outcome.

There is no way out of the tomb and Calderón suspects it was Tezca who put him there to die.

Mandy wakes every night screaming, with fear of the past. If it wasn’t for her sons, life would not be worth living. Her mother’s death, brings her sister home, but she keeps her distance from Mandy. Connie does not understand why she feels threatened by Mandy and her sons.

Her brother provides the protection that she needs to feel safe. As much as Mandy tries not to dwell on the memory that robs her of sleep and sanity, she is terrified of what will happen when they find her.

But danger seems to follow Mandy, and she has to be rescued again. This time by a stranger, a handsome, wide shouldered, deep blue-eyed hunk of a man. A man that seems to call to her cat, and she wants the man and what his hides inside. Could love blossom with this stranger, but how her sons would cope with this man, or is she fated to live her life alone.

There is adventure, love, mystery that throws her into turmoil. And what of all the secrets that she holds? Could Jason’s love be strong enough to save her from her dreams, and can he love her sons?

Customer Book Review: The Miracle of Green by A. E. Hanaway is a story about life, love, mystery, and escaping the past. It follows the journey of a young mother trying to protect herself and her sons from a secret that could destroy their lives. Through sleepless nights, nightmares, hardship, and bad luck, she is determined to find a safe place to raise her boys and start a new life.

Mandy Brown is a young widow and mother of two boys. A secret haunts Mandy and, despite the protection of her brother, Mandy feels that once the truth is known, she will lose her sons forever and she fears for her own safety. Making the decision to leave town following the death of her mother, Mandy heads off to her sister’s house with her boys but due to wrong turns and car trouble, she ends up in a small town…a town hiding its own secrets. There she meets a handsome and mysterious stranger, Jason Carmon. Unbeknownst to her, she will cross paths with Jason again and it will change her life forever.

But just as Mandy begins to feel somewhat comfortable in her new surroundings, her past catches up to her and her new family demonstrates just how much they care for her and her boys as they stand alongside Mandy’s brother to protect them.

There’s an unexpected twist to this story, and it’s this turn of events that brings the     mystery and intrigue into play and explains why Mandy is haunted by restless nights. And why the green eyes are a telltale sign of who Mandy and her boys really are and why they attract the attention of others.

Throughout the story, the author describes in great detail the characters and the raw emotions they feel. She paints a picture that is easily imagined, bringing life into the pages of the book. And she has you cheering for Mandy, her boys, and Jason, hoping they get the happy ending they deserve.

Mountain Moon: A Nova Garrett Novel (Book 2 In Series) by A. E. Hanaway

THE MEADOW: There is an old saying that comes from the Cherokee Indians, a proud and spiritual people: In the mountains there is a magical meadow. Perfectly circular. Filled with a variety of flowers, which share only one trait. Cinnabar. So, named by the old ones; they are abundant and extremely rare. They draw you in with a haunting fragrance that floats on the wind. Then it seeps into your mind, and wraps tightly around your heart to capture your soul.

Cinnabar. A beautiful name for a mystical flower. Cinnabar. The Redbud trees surround the meadow, protecting it as a knight protects the castle of his sire. The beautifully blooming, ancient guardians intertwined with the majestic and proud cedar. Together they form an almost impenetrable barrier as they kept a vigil over the rare flowers of the meadow.

Every year, on the seventh hour of the fourth day, if you happen to be in the meadow and truly believe with all your heart, the Mountain Moon will shine down on you. If so, you will surely see your true love. If legend is true, then I will search for that meadow someday.

My name is Novangelia Leeann Garrett, they call me… Nova, or at work it is simply, Runt. I live in the small tourist town of Tellico Plains, Tennessee. The town is set at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. In the early morning during the spring, summer, and fall, a smoke-colored haze rolls slowly down the slope. It reminds me of an avalanche of snow that silently descends, and then consumes everything in its path, hiding it from the outside world.

This beautiful, yet small and picturesque town, which I have come to love, I now call my home. In fact, it is the only home I have ever known. Whenever I gaze at the mountains, there is a longing that takes hold of my heart. It feels more like home, safe and secure. The feeling is stronger than the town itself. There is a feeling of danger there, and the need to escape from the pain that waits for me.

The last two years have not been easy for me. I fight the turmoil that reels inside me every day while I try to retrieve the memories of my past. I do this to try to bring order to my life, clear my mind, and put love back into my soul.

You would think that being gifted in so many ways would make my plight a little easier, but it has become so much more difficult. My story continues!

Fear Is Forever by William P. Robertson

FEAR IS FOREVER collects four decades of William P. Robertson’s best horror stories, many of which appeared in magazines worldwide.

The author specializes in understated Gothic terror in the tradition of Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. The Gothic rock of the Doors also fuels his imagination along with folktales told to him by his Swedish grandmother.

Ghost stories filled with sensory details are another of his strengths. Robertson delves into dark humor, too, and lends a fresh perspective to Bigfoot, the werewolf, and the troll. Bill’s best work chills rather than sickens.

Sometimes what is left unsaid is the most terrifying of all. . .

Harold Phifer

Message From Author Harold Phifer

“Afghanistan is a war-torn country that’s known for car bombs and suicide attacks. What is amazing about it is the fact that it has almost no factories, industries, and chemical plants—yet explosions are as common as catching a cold!

I found myself caught in the middle of the biggest vehicle explosion to ever hit Afghanistan. While dealing with injuries and destruction, my mind kept spinning out of control from horror to horror. Most of it revolved around my dysfunctional past.

I did my best to replay my personal ordeals and the reactions of the people around me as accurately as possible. However, as I feared for my life, my complete history of existence kept bouncing back and forth in and out of my head.

Nothing about Afghanistan is comparable to anything that the average person can relate to or may have experienced. I tried to give a fair account of life as a foreign worker surrounded by unknown terrorists.

After being in Afghanistan as a contractor, I realized that only the fools, the desperate, and the greedy dare to return. Unfortunately, I fall into one or more of those categories. None of the events I experienced was a laughing matter, and I didn’t try to minimize any of my quests to survive.

The ventures of my life bounced like a yo-yo without a knot as I tried to come to grips with being at death’s door. Once the characters are established, you will find that most of my past is comically meshed together with abnormal circumstances. My stories take you through my highs and lows, while perhaps giving you some of the best laughter you will ever get from a book.

The journey started out in the tropical country of Thailand, where I was living a carefree life with no worries or drama. By happenstance, I came across another retiree named Dylan. He took advantage of my drunken state while easily coercing me to dive into my life history. It was a life that I buried deep below the surface—away from my kids, family, friends, coworkers, and mainly myself.

After being forced to fight for my life, I had an avalanche of past events come gushing out from every possible angle. Dylan helped open a door that took him and me on a whirlwind tour that neither of us had ever expected or imagined.

There are so many twists and turns that feed into other stories or episodes. These features take place in different areas: Thailand, Afghanistan, Detroit, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Memphis, Houston, and back to Thailand.

Like most confused males, I had many good and bad relationships with the opposite sex. However, I saw no real value in talking about my normal or balanced connections. Instead, I shared my many failures, embarrassments, and heartbreaks with the readers because it’s just good entertainment and also a major part of my development. No doubt that you will find them quite unusual and amusing as well.

Each brief story is sure to affect you differently than the previous one. Dealing with what I viewed as imminent death helped me bring closure to where I was once open and exposed.

This book touches on the sad, shocking, and schizophrenic behaviors that surrounded me until later in my adulthood. I tried to ratchet down those experiences with my sense of humor and my creative outtakes.

You will meet both male and female bullies throughout the book. You will get to follow my difficult and awkward approach to meet my dad. And finally, you will witness my hidden drive just to be loved and accepted.

I hope that readers like you will desire to go back to these pages more than once. You may find yourself identifying with many of the events or characters. Hopefully, some of the stories will stick with you like nothing you have ever read or heard before.”

Sleep Walking Out Of Afghanistan: Walking It All Back by Harold Phifer

Harold Phifer was living a life that he was hiding from everyone–including himself. Then he met a retiree in Thailand who cracked that secret open. Finally listened to, and guided by the stranger’s on-target, thoughtful questions, Phifer spoke for the first time of his near-death experience while flashing back to his dysfunctional past.

Phifer’s memoir Sleep Walking Out of Afghanistan: Walking It All Back does not shy away from the stark details of childhood bullying, family tension, schizophrenia, and feeling like an outsider. At the same time, Phifer expertly keeps the reader turning the pages by finding the knee-slapping comedy within the darkness. Anyone who enjoys a good thrill ride, sharp wit, and fast-paced self-reflection will appreciate Sleep Walking Out of Afghanistan.

George Mattheson

Enigma by George Mattheson

“Who do you pray to and why?” But I have never really prayed. I have always conversed with God. I am not a religious person or a saint. I am a sinner, and I do believe in God as an entity an organization, for the CIA has always been a faith-based organization of theologians.

“Enigma is about the experiences of a diagnosed Schizophrenia individual who converses with God thru Michael an Archangel. While being the son of intelligence operatives he’s not sure, who is Michael. Could Michael be just another Clandestine Operative for the CIA?

For as he thought God is the CIA and Washington DC is the church of God. “I have been experiencing the effects of stigmata lately, so I started to write this novel the best way I know how, by sharing both truth and fiction. For the truth, you’ll have to find it on your own, but the fiction part is what I see in visions, memories, and dreams. It holds a hidden meaning for only the wise to decipher.” Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers’ Favorite

Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers’ Favorite: Enigma by George Mattheson is a novel about the psychology of a schizophrenic character who never liked to study as a child and who never read any books. He confesses that he has never been able to watch the television for more than two hours. But he believes to have a kind of communication with Michael, an Archangel. This is a man who believes the CIA is God and Washington, DC, the Church of God. But can this son of intelligence operatives figure out who Michael actually is? What is the hidden import in his reminiscences and wild assumptions?

George Mattheson has written a psychologically strong novel that allows readers to explore the mind of a schizophrenic individual, understand how reality can be distorted, and what happens when someone lives in their own world. The novel has a deep sense of pathos and from the moment the protagonist — who happens to be the narrator — mentions about being transferred from one psychologist to another, the reader gets a strong idea they won’t be reading anything like in mainstream literature.

This is a unique narrative, breezy and as engaging as it is fast-paced. The quirkiness in the narrative is arresting and the first-person voice is so beautifully done that it pulls the reader into the worldview of the protagonist powerfully, irresistibly. From the beginning of the story I wondered if the author could tell an interesting story, but as I read from one engaging page to the next, I understood the story is filled with dread truths and lessons that aren’t obvious. Enigma is a deceptively simple story but it has strong political and religious undertones, uncovering a subconscious that contemporary politicians wouldn’t want readers to awaken. It is utterly gripping, written in gorgeous prose and a strong narrative voice.

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers’ Favorite: Enigma by George Mattheson is George’s true story of his battle with schizophrenia and his conversations with God. George doesn’t pray; he talks to God through the Archangel Michael. Born to Intelligence Operatives, by the time he is 27, George has been diagnosed with both schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder and he doesn’t always know who Michael is. Could he be a CIA operative? After all, the CIA is God and the Church of God is Washington DC – isn’t it? Despite everything, George had a goal in life and he went after it. He got his Master’s Degree and he even went to work for the CIA as an Intelligence Operative. He even lived for a time in Trinidad and Tobago, proving to one and all that life is to be lived, no matter what gets thrown at you.

Enigma by George Mattheson is an odd story, part truth and part fiction, although the fiction is what George sees in his dreams and his visions, in his memories. It is written almost as a fictional novel in a first-person narrative and is in the format of a diary. It is strange but it is also quite compelling reading, very interesting once you get into it. Each event is written like a short story so they are separated and that, in my opinion, does make this more readable. I enjoyed the style that the book was written in; it was easy to follow and made perfect sense. George is nothing if not honest and has coped with what life has thrown at him incredibly well – there’s a lot that could be learned from this book. Overall, it is a good book, very well written and down to earth.

Reviewed by Maria Beltran for Readers’ Favorite: George Mattheson’s Enigma: Born as the Hand of God is a unique memoir that will leave its readers grappling between truth and fiction. As the son of the only licensed sea captain in Trinidad, with a mother of East Indian descent, Mattheson leads an extraordinary life. At the age of six, he began talking to Archangel Michael and was later diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder when he was twenty-seven years old. Amazingly, he has provided intelligence to the CIA since he was seventeen years old, although he has never worked for the agency in a professional capacity. Enigmatic, vivid and original, Enigma is an extraordinary life story as we get a glimpse of a complex but a beautiful mind.

Enigma: Born as the Hand of God by George Mattheson is an intriguing memoir of a diagnosed Schizophrenic who claims he talks to God through Archangel Michael. Born in Georgetown, Guyana, George Mattheson grew up in Trinidad, Tobago and the United States of America and finally settled in Converse, Texas. This is an extraordinary story that blurs the line between reality and visual and auditory hallucination. The story starts as he undergoes hypnosis supervised by a therapist, and as such this thought-inducing memoir unravels. His early childhood is certainly unique but it is quite an effort to separate truth and visions. And as we follow Mattheson in his life journey, we get a glimpse of an extraordinary man, even if we cannot decipher the hidden meaning behind the enigma.

Cynthia Woolf

Hannah (Brides Of The Oregon Trail Book 1) by Cynthia Woolf

Desperate times call for desperate measures, so when Hannah Granger’s little sister takes off for Oregon with a group of mail-order brides to meet her new husband, Hannah has no choice but to follow. She expects her sister to find trouble, and she does. But what Hannah doesn’t expect is to fall for the hired gun traveling with the wagon train as they make their way along the treacherous Oregon Trail.

The bounty hunter is tall, dark and dangerous, everything she’s avoided her entire life. But when she begins to suspect criminals are riding just four wagons back, she’ll do just about anything to convince him to listen…and to protect her fragile younger sister from the truth about what this trip is costing them both. The only thing bounty hunter Joe Stanton wants is to avoid trouble. He’s tagging along on this trip to the Oregon Territory to put a little extra cash in his pocket and take a break from the hunt. The only woman he ever loved broke his heart and his last bounty cost an innocent man his life. Joe’s had enough blood, death and betrayal to last a lifetime.

So why, then, does he make Hannah’s secrets his own? Why does he lie to protect her? And why does the stubborn woman’s dogged attempts to help him track down criminals drive him insane with worry?Maybe because he’s falling for the red-headed beauty. Maybe because if he doesn’t keep her close, they’ll both end up dead.

Starting in Independence, Missouri, 1852 a wagon train with 55 wagons and 103 mail-order-brides heads out for a long and arduous journey to Oregon City in the Washington Territory.

He is flirty which Hannah finds “scandalous” but funny. “I figure we’re headed to a new, young land and old etiquette doesn’t matter.” Reviewer by Susan

Lydia (Brides Of The Oregon Trail Book 2) by Cynthia Woolf

Lydia Granger thought she left a life of struggle and poverty behind. As a mail-order bride on her way to Oregon City, a secure future is assured. But when the wagon train arrives in Oregon City, she discovers her fiancé is dead and her dream of a safe future is shattered.

Moments after her dream is stolen from her, a gift arrives. Her wealthy fiancé left her everything he had. Life for Lydia should be easy, but the truth is much darker and more terrifying than she could imagine, for her fiancé’s death was no accident, and the man who took his life wants everything, all the dead man’s riches.

Detective Max Caldwell lost his wife to a brutal killer, a man who will stop at nothing to take what he wants from the world. He killed in Chicago. He killed in Oregon. It’s only a matter of time before he strikes again. Max seeks not only justice, but vengeance for his wife’s death and has no qualms about asking the innocent Lydia to help him hunt for her fiancé’s murderer. Because Lydia, and her inheritance, are the bait Max will use to lure evil into the light. Too late he realizes Lydia, with her soft heart, beautiful smile, and collection of rescued animals is not only powerful enough to take down a killer, but she just might melt the ice around his heart.

“Love this book by Cynthia as with all of her books she rocks her books out of the park. This book is about Lydia going on the wagon train with her sister and brother-in-law. Lydia was supposed to marry Mr. Mosley and she found out that he had suddenly died. I think she was surprised that he had left her everything including her house which was perfect for all her animals that she rescued. Long story short is that this is a great read and fast paced you can never go wrong with Cynthia’s books. Love this set of books.” Reviewed by Chris Linhart

About The Author: Cynthia Woolf is the award winning and best-selling author of more than thirty-three historical western romance books and two short stories with more books on the way.

Cynthia loves writing and reading romance. Her first western romance Tame A Wild Heart, was inspired by the story her mother told her of meeting Cynthia’s father on a ranch in Creede, Colorado. Although Tame A Wild Heart takes place in Creede that is the only similarity between the stories. Her father was a cowboy not a bounty hunter and her mother was a nursemaid (called a nanny now) not the ranch owner.

Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and her great critique partners for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

The Rigel Affair by L M Hedrick

The Rigel Affair: Award-Winning Chilling WW2 Thriller Novel with Rip-Roaring Romance

Abandoned by his part-Cherokee Ma, Charlie Kincaid escapes servitude with his uncle. He jumps a boxcar, accompanied by his schoolmate Roxy, who is escaping troubles of her own. Charlie becomes a US Navy Diver.

Mattie Blanc is from a genteel New Zealand family. But when her brother’s friend persuades her to take a ride, it all goes horribly wrong. Desperate, she flees her family’s stifling expectations for a new life in Auckland.

After the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack, Charlie sets sail for Auckland aboard the USS Rigel. And there she is, the girl of his dreams. Mattie is everything that Roxy isn’t– sophisticated, tender, and patient. But the war intervenes… Rigel embarks for the Pacific war zones.

Charlie’s letters are sporadic. Mattie is tormented by doubts; did he truly love her, or was it only a dream?

The Rigel Affair produces a rip-roaring wartime romance and chilling danger unknown to most.

How did that make you feel?

Unique, Different, and a Little Weird is an entertaining and engaging social story about misconceptions that happen every day in school and on the playground. It teaches different strategies for dealing with frustrations, and the importance of communication. This story also encourages everyone to embrace their own uniqueness.

This creative story is about a boy who overhears someone calling him weird. He gets angry, and wants to scream and yell and hit, but then remembers something important. He remembers strategies his teacher taught him that help him calm down. Once he’s calm Tommy apologizes to him and clarifies the misunderstanding of the meaning of the word weird.

“To be different, unique, and a little weird, is not as bad as I originally feared. So be these things each and every day, because we’re all unique in our own special way.”

From The Author: This book is a great social story about misconceptions that happen every day in school and on the playground.  It teaches different strategies for dealing with frustrations, and the importance of communication. Kids won’t even know they are learning, how awesome!  This book would be an excellent addition to any teacher’s classroom read aloud list.

From The Inside Flap: This book is for Donald, Trey, Lincoln and Jackson. For all the children who’ve ever felt different and weird.  Each of you make this world a better place. You may be Unique, Different and a little weird, but each child is special and loved.

My Special Mind by Laura Day and Trey Day

All too often children with ADHD feel as if the focus is always on correcting or highlighting the negative behaviors associated with having ADHD. As an educator and a mom with a child who has ADHD, I wanted to bring acceptance to certain attributes of having ADHD. “My Special Mind” is a book all children can relate too.

ADHD can be fun, exciting, and adventurous. An ADHD mind is a special mind.

“My Special Mind” is a great reminder of how special everyone’s mind truly is. My son and I embarked on this special project, where he takes the reader on a journey inside the mind of ADHD.

Buckle up, an 8-year old’s mind is definitely an interesting place to be!

“My mind is always with me, thinking, and creating fun things to do and see. That’s what’s so special about me”.

From The Author: Trey is diagnosed with severe ADHD, ODD, Epilepsy, and sensory sensitivities.  With all of this comes challenges.  I would always hear grumbles from him about how “he just can’t do this or that”. I wanted to find a way to inspire and empower him to prove to him that anything is possible if you put your mind to it, and work hard for it.  We sat down together and I had him make 2 lists.

1 list for all of his successes, and another list for all of his struggles.

I took those 2 lists and created this beautiful story. “My Special Mind” started out as a project just between us, a special way for us to bond.  After reading the finished story, I soon realized that this book was truly something special and felt compelled to share it with the world.  Trey’s perspective on daily life and his thought process is felt by so many children and adults alike.  That’s what makes this book unique.

Martin and The Tree Seed by Laura Day

After moving to Texas, Martin befriended an 8-year-old boy named Kevin. The two boys quickly became inseparable. One morning while walking to the bus stop, they came across a truly unique object. Imaginations ran wild with Martin, who was convinced it was a once in a lifetime alien discovery. Fossilized alien poop! Kevin had a different theory. As a way to help bring his friend back down to earth, Kevin drew a picture of what the discovery would look like fully grown. Before he could give it to Martin, it was confiscated by their teacher. Kevin was forced to look on, as Martin befriended the new girl in class. Emotions ran high! Did Martin betray his best friend, or was he just being nice to the new kid in school? You decide!

From The Author: Martin and the Tree Seed was inspired by a student of mine.  The student was a reluctant reader.  I racked my brain, searched, and tried different books for him to read in the classroom.  Nothing I tried seemed to hold his attention.  So, one day I decided to write him a story.  Martin and the Tree Seed started out as a short story, which he actually read.  So, I kept writing, and he kept reading.  Before long my first chapter book was born.  It was such an exciting and rewarding experience.

The 100th Meridian Murders (CJ Hand Novel Volume 5) by C. G. Haberman

After proving his reputation as the top sharpshooter in the world, Ivan Talcott settles in China. Here, he plans to achieve his goal of becoming a multimillionaire by the age of forty. Suddenly, and without warning, he’s told to leave China, and never return. Undaunted, he will aim for his goal in the USA.

While on a hunting trip Nebraska, the sharpshooter agrees to proposal that will fulfill his goal. The hunt becomes his final challenge before he begins a new life. The result of his grisly kills uncovers dark secrets long hidden in the halls of the U.S. Congress.

CJ Hand returns to Lincoln, Nebraska after surviving a brutal attack that left him a battered man. His wife, Dee, encourages him to complete a doctoral degree and form the Great Plains Consulting firm. This new challenge, they hope, will lead him away from a turbulent path to a stable life.

His company gets the boost it needs when he signs a contract for work along the 100th meridian. The study leads him to the deadly path he left years before. The discoveries, while using drones, leads his field and office crew into a threatening, dark world. The people he admires, and to whom he owes his success, return to help. They again face the evil they once thought erased.

The peaceful, rural prairie holds secrets that turns violent. The deadly hunt begins, spilling blood across the western United States.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: For those of us following criminal investigator CJ Hand, this is what we have been waiting for, and you won’t be disappointed with ‘The 100th Meridian Murders: Volume Five by C. G. Haberman.

Realistic characters, descriptive writing that transport you to the Mid-West, USA, and a well-constructed mystery will keep you engaged all the way to the end of the 60th chapter.

Let me begin by telling you that character Ivan Talcott has studied people well for years and blends into each crowd with ease. He is a business man by degree with a life goal of “building an empire of wealth without government interference”. His professional skills as the top sharpshooter in the world help him secure funds to offshore accounts and keep him on track to become a millionaire by age forty. Called back to the US from China, he accepts a proposal.

Investigator CJ Hand who now suffers from PTSD after recovering from being beaten nearly to death and left to die three years ago returns to Lincoln, Nebraska. His wife Dee stands by his side and encourages him to completes his doctoral degree. He is challenged by his entrepreneurial spirit to form his own consulting firm. One of his first consulting contracts leads him into familiar territory that he thought he had left behind when a man in Keya Paha County finds a human skeleton.

An environment activist group that stumbles into the 100th meridian study wants to know who or what group sponsored the study?

Like any good mystery, it is the readers job to relate to one or more of the characters. Join CJ Hand as crime comes in a secretive fury like the tornadoes that thunder across the Great Plains of the US.

I endorse ‘The 100th Meridian Murders’ by C. G. Haberman. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on August 7, 2017.

I encourage you to read: Deadly Circles: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 1), Mill Creek Malice: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 2), Dead Man’s Run: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 3), Lake Of Lies: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 4) and The 100th Meridian Murders: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 5) by C. G. Haberman

Lake of Lies: CJ Hand Novel Volume 4 by C G Haberman

Two teenage boys on a deer hunt in northwest Iowa watch as a trophy buck flees before either can release an arrow. Something in the crumbling cellar frightened the animal. Curious to know what disturbed the deer they open the shelter door and hell erupts. The sudden failure of an outstanding student, his fiancée’s new job opportunities, and a personnel action weigh on CJ Hand. His daughter calls with news of his former wife. A disturbing past leads him back to Lincoln, Nebraska to confront demons. At semester’s end on an icy and snowy morning, his life would change once again. Dr. Trisha Baker becomes the hunter with the intent to destroy a predator. The revenge is for her friends and herself, and to erase the painful memory of losing her fiancé.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: ‘Lake Of Lies’ is just one of four, hard to put down, CJ Hand Mystery Novels written by C. G.Haberman.

Main character CJ Hand uses his love for, comfort of and the serenity of the back roads from Iowa to South Dakota to capture its breathtaking beauty through his camera photo lens which illustrates lessons that he shares with his ecology and botany students.

Intuitive moments and detailed memories have become part of his life since working for the Department of Justice. While forcing himself to move forward, CJ’s past is never far behind. The news hits him hard when the parole board releases Tom Vaughn and he knows someone must warn Tom’s wife Donette to stay alert.

A call from his daughter Meaghan stirs some of the personal demons that haunt him. A trip down memory lane brings him back to the lake where he and his wife Marnie had spent countless, glorious hours together. He sits and stares out across the lake to the shoreline where the shadows still hold remnants of ice and watches as several boys cast their fishing lines into the cold water with hopes of catching a catfish. The ring of his cell phone brings him back to the present.

His life with his fiancée Dee, his many influential friends and co-workers find their world mostly centered on the Mill Creek State University and the surrounding communities. CJ reluctantly confides in psychologist Dr. Adriane Peterson. Like all psychologists she asks a lot of questions, like “You said there were other students, especially female nontraditional students with sudden grade drops, correct?” He nodded. “The question is: why the focus on Tammy Day?”

Two boys brave the frigid temperature at the southern edge of an abandoned farmstead in hopes to “get the biggest damn buck you ever did see.” Hiding in silence they hold their bows taught with arrows when the approaching deer notice something and their heightened awareness and instincts cause them to bolt. Understandably upset the boys strike out on a new hunt for the source of the hunting debacle and what they discover makes them gag.

It is more than Dr. Trisha Baker who works at Mill Creek State University in the Psychology Center can stand. She sets out to seek revenge for her fiancé, friends and most importantly to “destroy a predator”.

I endorse ‘Lake Of Lies: A CJ Hand Novel’ by C. G. Haberman. Each book in this crime, fiction, mystery series stand alone. I also have the privilege of reading and reviewing ‘Deadly Circles: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 1)’. Dead Man’s Run and Mill Creek Malice are a couple more novels in the CJ Hand series.

I encourage you to read these four CJ Hand Novels sold in both print and e-book. Enjoy the written mastery of author C. G Haberman. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on February 25, 2015.

Dead Man’s Run: CJ Hand Novel Volume 3 by C. G. Haberman

For CJ Hand, the corral bathed in the morning sunlight is a false sign of the day to come. Minutes after starting his run up Deadman Road, a dense fog shrouds the canyon. In the heavy, gray mist a hushed purr from the road bend behind him forces CJ to take cover in the stand of ponderosa pine and cottonwoods. He waits for the danger to pass. An hour later he stares at a dead man, blood covering the understory of brown pine needles and yellowing cottonwood leaves. The second death lay in front of CJ. The mountain lion is the focus of the first death, but the local County Sheriff realizes something other a mountain lion lurks in Dead Man’s Canyon. CJ Hand and Tom Thies join the county sheriff, investigating the deaths. A Black Hills mining geologist who traveled to the Nebraska Pine Ridge is the key. The first dead man might be the answer. What they find hints at far-reaching impacts for the area and the United States.

Mill Creek Malice: C. G. Haberman Volume 2 by C. G. Haberman

The animal stench triggers Dawn’s gag reflex. The constant grinding of stone on stone irritably attacks her frayed nerves, and abruptly stops. Odd scratching sounds echo in her half-conscious state. She pulls herself into a sitting position and stares at a cage door. She gasps at the thing peering into her eyes.

A year before CJ Hand arrives as the new instructor at Loess Hills Community College the former professor inexplicably disappears. With the case going cold local law enforcement officers seek help. Investigators run into problems with the strange case involving native plants, and seek CJ’s expertise.

CJ is thrust into a world of pharmaceutical collusion when he finds the rare plant in question, but he also discovers an old ammunition box. When he opens it a nightmare begins. A geocache note inside written in a riddle, places him in the grip of matching wits with a killer. Key to the investigation, and the game, are–a small reptilian creature and the rare plant.

The new General Education Dean adds to CJ’s mental and physical anguish, suggesting the violation of his teaching contract. The summer class begins in two weeks and CJ has a choice to make: stop his part in the investigation or resign from his contract.

Deadly Circles: CJ Hand Novel Volume 1 by C. G. Haberman

The pall of death hangs over two distinctly different valleys separated by eighteen-hundred miles. One a modest, unknown channel drained by a small cool-water stream and the other a magnificent gorge carved by a roaring river that separates two states. Unknown to a man, tormented by loss and intensifying anger, both valleys hold his fate. A bloody mist suddenly fills a truck cab. It is not the shot but the seconds after that begins change for criminal investigator CJ Hand. Beset with his recent loss and pent-up anger he takes leave from a tangled bureaucratic mess. Trying to find self-worth he agrees to help friends by probing the accidental drowning of a friend’s son. The image of an uncomplicated investigation is quickly shattered. CJ encounters a maze of deadly circles surrounding the death. He begins unwinding hidden tentacles of political power and personal greed gripping Elm Creek valley. Affecting his personal life are two intellectual and intuitive women who help him come to grips with what he has been running from, or toward, for a decade. DEADLY CIRCLES is a fast-paced novel exposing the ugly underbelly of insidious criminal activity.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Deadly Circles: A CJ Hand Novel is a fast moving fiction crime mystery that enchants the reader with breath taking descriptive beauty with possible environmental struggles within the Great Plains of the USA.

The main character, CJ Hand was born in Hand County, South Dakota. As a criminal investigator CJ Hand takes the reader on a vivid pictorial trip down the winding rural roads of Nebraska into the small towns where life and love among other things thrive with a cast of over 40 characters. The dialog flows very smooth and this reviewer can visualize this book series becoming an excellent made for TV series.

Enjoy the descriptive beauty of the landscapes and relate with the rural folks going about their daily lives. Just keep in mind that nothing is perfect and even here there festers a quiet under tone of mystery, personal and political greed, crime and an unexplained death.

Haberman weaves a tale that keeps the reader turning the pages with descriptive artistry like in this quote: “A breeze whispered through the pine and cedar trees as he entered the small acreage. Colored lichens dotted gravestones and the stately old trees. He moved from grave to grave reading the inscriptions. Several large round, prairie-hay bales rested in the warm autumnal sunshine in the east half of the cemetery, devoid of headstones. CJ squatted down, grasped a handful of loose hay, examined the dried vegetation, and rolled it between his palms. The earthy, redolent grass brought a melancholy rush. The death of a friend’s son brought him here and a tragic farm accident united him with the woman he loved. He stood in the earthly solitude, stillness within him. A wind gust interrupted the moment. An important task lay ahead.”

I endorse Deadly Circles: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 1) and you can follow this book up with Mill Creek Malice (Volume 2) as the series continues to unfold under the mastery of author C. G. Haberman. This review was completed on December 5, 2014.

Nebraska Pine Ridge: Dead Man’s Run Novel Setting

************************

The Naturalists: A Historic Novel (The Hayman Saga Volume 1) by C. G. Haberman

Where is Nebraska? The measure lies in locating Chicago and Denver, then calculating the midpoint between the two. There exists land called the Rainwater Basin. To find the remains of the best basins requires a calling, the calling to understand the startling dependency of life. In the heart of the United States the last of the Hayman lineage, Chance Hayman, experiences the nibbling erosion and decimation of this North American keystone. The Naturalist begins in the 1820s with a minister full of desire to serve his God. Reverend Abner Hayman is not the normal German Reformed minister. His ministerial sincerity and verve excites his Pennsylvania congregation. As with many successful men he will gain fame and follow a path fraught with temptation, deception, and loss. His path across the rapidly expanding nation leads him to Illinois. There he loses a son to a calling of his own. John Hayman does not scorn the country know as the Great American Desert. Abner Hayman’s son finds a land that fills his spiritual yearning, a land of grass and marshes that is unyielding, but teems with life and promise. It is this young man, the naturalist, who finds love of life, land, and women who is the taproot for the future Hayman families who fight to save the rainwater basins from extinction.

The Naturalists A Historic Novel (The Hayman Saga Volume 2 ) by C. G. Haberman

Gripped by a spiritual call, John Hayman found the land of his dreams. The land tested him, but he learned to live with it and survived to foster a land ethic. In the second volume of The Naturalists, the new era of John’s three sons unfolds and they are as diverse as the land.

500 Miles To Go by J. Conrad Guest

Romance set against a sports backdrop, 500 Miles To Go is about the importance of, and the risks associated with, the pursuit of dreams. When our dreams cause angst to our loved ones, they often become nightmares.

Gail fell for Alex Król before she learned that he risked his life on dirt tracks during the summer months to the delight of fans who paid to see cars crash—the more spectacular the wreck the taller they stood on their toes and craned their necks to see the carnage. When Alex makes his dream to drive in the Indy 500 come true and he witnesses the deaths of two drivers in his first start, he must ask himself if his quest to win the world’s greatest race is worth not only the physical risk, but also losing the woman he loves.

Review: “A sweet love story gives way to the love affair with speed… First loser becomes disillusioned winner, hindsight waxes philosophical, and a lonely man reminds us, ‘One doesn’t find love… Love is a choice.’” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

Excerpt: “I looked at the phone, silent on the nightstand, and for the first time since she walked out of my life, I thought about calling Gail. Never had I longed so much to hear her voice. ‘Alex Król,’ she’d say into the phone, the way she used to when we were young. I imagined her telling me how glad she was that I’d called, that she’d listened to the race on the radio, had watched it later that night on tape delay, and had celebrated with me. She’d go on to say that she’d followed my entire career, was proud of all that I’d accomplished, maybe even adding that she’d been foolish to worry about my getting hurt. I’d tell her it was okay, that I understood. Then I’d ask her to join me for dinner when I got back to town, and she’d sigh in that way she had, and tell me that she’d love to…”

Alex paused, and Alicia waited patiently for him to continue:

“But so much in life never plays out the way we envision it. My marriage was proof of that.

“I re-imagined the phone call: Gail’s father would answer. He’d congratulate me on winning the 500 – assuming he was aware of it. He’d ask how I was doing, and I’d tell him, ‘Great, I’m doing great.’ Then I’d ask about Gail. He’d tell me that she’d met a young man a year or so after we’d broken up, married him, and that she was now mother to two healthy toddlers, a boy and a girl. Then it would be my turn to congratulate him, for becoming a granddaddy. Maybe, to save face, I’d nonchalantly ask him to say ‘hello’ to Gail for me, give her my best, hoping he wouldn’t, not wanting her to know that I’d asked about her. More than likely, I’d leave it at ‘Congratulations’ and simply say ‘Goodbye.’

Backstop: A Baseball Love Story In Nine Innings by J. Conrad Guest

Backstop plays the catcher’s position for any team in any city in America with a major league ball club. You cheer him when he delivers, and boo him when he doesn’t. Told in his own words during the seventh game of the World Series in what could be his last game after fourteen years in the major leagues, Backstop chronicles his rookie season, takes the reader to Chicago where he finds romance, and reveals his heartbreak in the aftermath of an adulterous affair.

Cheer for Backstop on and off the field as he plays the most important game of his career—haunted by the ghost of his father who passed away before Backstop achieved stardom—and fights to win back the heart of the woman he loves more than the game.

Backstop was nominated a 2010 Michigan Notable Book, while the Lewis Department of Humanities at the Illinois Institute of Technology adopted it as required reading for their spring 2011 course, “Baseball: America’s Literary Pastime”.

Reviews: “Superbly crafted with a deft, tender touch, Backstop: A Baseball Love Story In Nine Innings is a compelling tale of following the true passions of the heart. A truly heartwarming read.” Reviewer: Apex Reviews

“Backstop’s a read where slow development contrasts with fastballs, slow plans with hurried mistakes, and slow reading with quickened excitement and delight. The dialog has a sweet old-fashioned feel, pleasant humor, and serious depth, and the whole is a seriously enjoyable tale.”  Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

“This is where J. Conrad Guest meets us in Backstop: in this beautiful, hopeful place closest to our hearts, where we play for the love of the game, and we love with everything we have.” Reviewer: Rachael Perry-Author of How to Fly

Chaotic Theory by J. Conrad Guest

What power, to hold in one’s own hands the ability to affect the present by altering the past… In the twenty-second century the world population has dwindled to fewer than a billion, with total extinction expected within a decade.

An erotic science fiction tale of love and love lost, Chaotic Theory centers around three profiles of a solitary individual, Antanas Rupkus, a young Lithuanian.

In one he is a musician endeavoring to keep alive the work of American jazz musicians of the twentieth century. Stoic and aimless, Antanas is incapable of anything but physical intimacy the result of having witnessed, as a boy, his parents killed by Estonian immigrants in search of fresh water. In another profile, he is a sculptor, filled with hope and the belief that love can overcome all obstacles, until he loses the object of both his inspiration and desire.

In the third, Antanas is a writer whose essays define the mid to late twentieth century as the point in history that set man on the path to extinction. But alas, his wisdom comes too late. If only Antanas had lived two hundred years earlier; but perhaps he can, if what Kazys Galdikas tells him is true…

The Cobb Legacy by J. Conrad Guest

In this non-traditional romance, Cagney Nowak is writing a novel around the 1905 shooting death of baseball legend Ty Cobb’s father by his mother a week before Ty was called up by the Detroit Tigers. Although she was acquitted by an all-male jury on the grounds that the incident was accidental, the townspeople of Royston, Georgia, always thought otherwise. When Cagney begins to relive the night of the shooting in his dreams, more than a century later and in the guise of Amanda Cobb, he is led to discover his father’s deepest secret.

More than a mystery romance, The Cobb Legacy is the story of a man’s efforts to connect with his dying father, a World War II veteran suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Cagney must also fight to come to terms with his obsession over the Cobb legacy as well as his own adulterous affair and impending divorce, while doubting that love with an old friend can be his.

Reviews: “… an eye-opening tale of drama, scandal, and intrigue highlighting the living, breathing history of a fatally-flawed, intrepid folk hero. Five stars.” Reviewer: Apex Reviews

“Threads come together with gentle touches of fate, and there’s a satisfying completeness to the tale which goes beyond past and present into eternity.” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

Excerpt: “I used to think Romeo and Juliet was the greatest love story ever written. But now that I’m middle-aged, I know better. Oh, Romeo certainly thinks he loves his Juliet. Driven by hormones, he unquestionably lusts for her. But if he loves her, it’s a shallow love. You want proof?” Cagney didn’t wait for Dr. Victor to say yay or nay.

“Soon after meeting her for the first time, he realizes he forgot to ask her for her name. Can true love be founded upon such shallow acquaintance? I don’t think so. And at the end, when he thinks she’s dead, he finds no comfort in living out the remainder of his life within the paradigm of his love, at least keeping alive the memory of what they had briefly shared, even if it was no more than illusion, or more accurately, hormonal.

“Those of us watching events unfold from the darkness know she merely lies in slumber. But does he seek the reason for her life-like appearance? No. Instead he accuses Death of amorousness, convinced that the ‘lean abhorred monster’ endeavors to keep Juliet in her present state, her cheeks flushed, so that she might cater to his own dissolute desires. But does Romeo hold her in his arms one last time and feel the warmth of her blood still coursing through her veins? Does he pinch her to see if she might awaken? Hold a mirror to her nose to see if her breath fogs it? Once, twice, three times a ‘no.’”

Cagney heard the leather creak as he shifted his weight in his chair.

“No,” he repeated. “His alleged love is so superficial and selfish that he seeks to escape the pain of loss by taking his own life. That’s not love, but obsessive infatuation. Had they wed—Juliet bearing many children, bonding, growing together, the masks of the star-struck teens they once were long ago cast away, basking in the comforting campfire of a love born of a lifetime together, not devoured by the raging forest fire of youth that consumes everything and leaves behind nothing—and she died of natural causes, would Romeo have been so moved to take his own life, or would he have grieved properly, for her loss and not just his own?”

January’s Paradigm (January Trilogy Book One) by J. Conrad Guest

In this fantasy romance, Robert Porter is enjoying the fruits of success: a best-selling novel featuring a hard-nosed detective circa 1947 named Joe January and a lucrative contract for the sequel. But his world comes crashing down around him when he witnesses his wife’s infidelity.

As Porter sinks into a morass of grief over her abandonment, only one person can help him regain his self-esteem and dignity. One man alone can help Porter set things right … and that person’s name is Joe January. But he doesn’t even exist… or does he?

Reviews: “J. Conrad Guest’s attention to details of plot is meticulous as he keeps his novel pulsing with energy and tension skillfully woven with an entertaining combination of romance, betrayal, mystery and thrill. With storytelling mastery on full display, powered by engaging narrative and emotional intensity of individual story line, January’s Paradigm is a novel that delights its readers with a captivating premise with serious literary work of thoughtfulness, complexity and depth.

Those looking for a fantasy with diversity may find themselves bewitched. This 5-star read is definitely worth reading for its originality. Highly recommended.” Reviewer: Enas Reviews

“In January’s Paradigm, J. Conrad Guest has taken the heartbreak of sexual betrayal and turned it into a romance-fantasy… Readers will not be able to put it down.” Reviewer: Current Entertainment Monthly, Ann Arbor, Michigan

Excerpt: Once more at peace with myself, I rounded a corner and collided with a small gargoyle.

It was grotesque. Standing at no more than five-foot, three inches tall, it was dwarfed by my six-foot, three-inch frame. It was obese, too; its girth greater than its height. Its personal appearance was obscenity personified: a bulbous nose, red from too much drink, supported glasses so thick the magnifying principle worked both ways. The watery blue eyes, disproportionately huge, glared back at me with cold, savage indifference.

And I recognized the beast of my recent nightmares.

At the same moment, dawning recognition replaced the indifference that had previously resided on those hideous features. A smile broke from behind gray lips; its teeth, black from the rot of ten thousand Baby Ruth bars, jutted at a multitude of crazy angles, like those of some weirdly mutated rodent. It grunted once; the sharp exhalation accompanied by halitosis so foul I was forced to take a step back.

Then it was gone, leaving me staring after it in disbelief.

One Hot January (January Trilogy Book Two) by J. Conrad Guest

Imagine an alternate history in which the United States fails to enter World War II in time to help the Allies defeat the Tripartite before Germany becomes too strong to defeat. A future in which Germany perfects genetic engineering and is eradicating whole nations in an effort to secure the empire Hitler vowed would last a thousand years; a future in which Hitler lies in a secret cryogenic chamber, awaiting treatment for a cancer for which a cure has finally been discovered. Imagine a future in which a faction of genetically engineered people, opposed to Hitler’s tyranny, choose to travel back in time to amend future history by influencing Winston Churchill to withhold from U.S. Intelligence the vital decrypt specifying the date and time of the raid on Pearl Harbor. Imagine a fast-talking private investigator from the Bronx named Joe January who uncovers a seemingly impossible plot by grudgingly agreeing to help a pretty young woman locate her missing father—a Professor of Archaeology from Columbia College who must prevent the secret of Hitler’s location from falling into the wrong hands…

By the end of One Hot January, January is transported into the future where in the sequel, January’s Thaw, he must survive by his century-old sagacity in our modern world.

Reviews: “Joe January is a private investigator operating in the South Bronx in the 1940s. He writes in first person, has a wry sense of humor and keen observation skills, and, somehow, he’s looking back on history from a future we haven’t yet seen. Could Joe January still be alive and reviewing his past in 2082?

“Dialog’s so pitch-perfect I imagine watching a black-and-white movie, hearing words in my head. The combination of Bogie, WWII and time-travel is truly beguiling, and, while this novel’s clearly complete in itself, I’ll certainly look forward to reading the sequel when it comes out.” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

“He may be Bogart-cool and clever, sharp-tongued and fedoraed—but underneath the veneer Joe January reveals himself both in his vulnerability and the most ageless adventure of all: a journey of the heart.” Reviewer: Rachael Perry-Author of How to Fly

Excerpt: Later that night Lance saw Melissa home, via cab. The decorated war hero and gentleman nonpareil no doubt sealed their business venture with a handshake, not a kiss. The kiss, he would anticipate, would come later.

I was mildly disappointed to find that the mole on Ginger’s breast had no twin elsewhere; but the consolation her many other gifts provided helped to ease my disappointment. Still, I found Ginger to be a taker and not a giver, and so what pleasure I gained was the result of my own giving, which she was only too eager to take.

While Lindy, who drove home alone, was robbed of any chance to give, and therefore gained neither pleasure let alone solace from the image of where and with whom I had lain.

Over the decades since that night, I’ve tormented myself over the fact that Lindy had suffered her disappointment alone, perhaps the previously unrecollected melody, I Don’t Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You, echoing unsympathetically through her fading consciousness, her pillow taking the tears she could not help but give.

Tomorrow is forever. I should’ve held on for one more night.

Ah, so many regrets. What’s one more?

January’s Thaw (January Trilogy Book Three) by J. Conrad Guest

Many people obsess over their past, but no one more than I. Perchance it’s because, as a man out of time, I left behind so much of it unlived.

If that makes little sense, consider that I’m a time traveler. Although the backdrop for my story is time travel and alternate realities, the underlying theme is a more human one—of love lost, another love found only to be lost, and of a decision, the result of a single regret brought about by the realization that my self-professed courage to never risk my heart to love was instead cowardice, to rectify a wrong in a life filled with myriad regrets. You may judge me, as it is man’s nature to judge others, or discount my story as the ravings of a lunatic mind or simply the fiction of an overactive imagination—but before you do, I ask that you read on to the end, and then ask yourself if you would have acted any differently.

Review: “In January’s Thaw, J. Conrad Guest gives us an unforgettable adventure seen through the cracked lens of our broken present and an all-too-possible, what-if past. Full of intrigue, romance and scathing social commentary, it is both an ambitious novel and an exciting, page-turning imaginative quest for that which is beautiful and true.” Reviewer: Rachael Perry-Author of How to Fly

A Retrospect In Death by J. Conrad Guest

A Retrospect In Death, a mainstream novel with elements of the supernatural, the afterlife, life, living, and romance, is a story about discovery. You think you know yourself? Perhaps you only think you do. Maybe those with whom you’ve shared a room, whether briefly or long term, know you better.

On the other side of the Great Divide, the narrator, who remains nameless throughout the narrative, encounters his higher self—the part of him that is immortal and connected to the creator—and learns (much to his chagrin) that he must return to the lifecycle. But first he must be “debriefed” by his higher self, and so they set about discussing the man’s previous life—in reverse chronological order: knowing the end but retracing the journey, searching for the breadcrumbs left along the way.

Do those closest to us know us better than we know ourselves; or do they, as we often insist, know jack? Consider that only in death can you really know, and understand, who and why you are—or were. And then ask yourself: At that point, is it too late? Does it even matter?

Review: “Introspective, like a personal remembrance of life, this book is more than diary or autobiography, but less than truth perhaps because it’s viewed entirely through the eyes of the (dead) protagonist. Slowly working towards the unseen facts of his character’s past, J. Conrad Guest’s A Retrospective In Death is a languid, oddly compelling tale, evoking an era with a wealth of intricate detail, creating a memorable yet achingly ordinary man, and searching for meaning and purpose in it all.

“Song titles, movies, well-known names and places, events in sports, evocative phrases from the past and much, much more build up into a powerful retrospect of an era, all told in a voice that changes convincingly with changing enthusiasm, self-deprecating humor, and psychoanalytical hints from the higher self. It’s a pleasing, though very long tale, and the ending is beautifully worth the languorous journey.” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

A World Without Music by J. Conrad Guest

Romance with a twist: Can a Gulf War veteran suffering PTSD finally leave behind his past to find the music that will make his life worth living?

Reagan returns from the first Gulf War haunted by horrific images of Tom Wallach, a dead marine he brought back from the desert. Seeking refuge from his nightmares and broken marriage in a jazz quartet in which he plays bass guitar, fifteen years elapse and he has a one-night fling with Rosary, a beautiful young woman he meets at one of his gigs. When his ex-wife comes back into his life, Rosary’s obsession turns into a fatal attraction.

With help from Wallach’s ghost, the daughter Wallach never met, and a friend who is much more than he appears to be, Reagan discovers he must let go of his tortured past if he is to embrace the future.

Review:  The Unsettling Beauty of a Perfect Chord… “Discussions of life, love, faith and the universe fuel J. Conrad Guest’s intriguing dialog-based novel A World Without Music. Music itself ‘stands half way between thought and phenomenon,’ a fascinating concept that leaves the reader pondering all. But the conversation’s powerful and real, and the tale moves on; locations change, topics flow and grow, and the reader soon feels like a traveler delighting in overhearing strangers who might become friends.

“This novel’s path through music, movies, sci-fi, baseball, politics, faith and romance are endlessly intriguing and deeply involving, even as mystery deepens and danger looms. Allusions to jazz and song lyrics are as natural as the flight of a softball into the air, smoothly delighting the reader whether they’re caught or simply catch the eye. And Reagan, born to lust, love or jazz, has choices to make, and scary consequences to navigate.

“And the music of the common man proves as vital to our world’s symphony as that of heroes and villains throughout all time. A World Without Music reads like a masterpiece of music, culture and life and is highly recommended.” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

Excerpt: Reagan followed Wallach to the living room, where they sat, facing each other, in two high-backed chairs.

“How do I know I’m not the one dreaming?” Reagan whispered.

“You’re not.”

“But how do I know?”

Wallach shrugged. “Pinch yourself if you don’t believe me.”

Reagan refrained from doing just that; at some level he knew this was real: across from him sat the ghost of Tom Wallach.

“Death is permanent,” Wallach said.

“Don’t I know it.”

“I’m sure you do. Aren’t you glad now that you didn’t pull the trigger on your Glock? You were so convinced that you’d lost Sarah forever, but it was just a bump in the road. She needed time to realize what you meant to her. Had you pulled that trigger –”

“I know,” Reagan said, looking away in shame.

“No, you don’t, Reagan. You have no idea what that would’ve done to Sarah.”

Reagan sighed. “Suicides rarely understand the ruin they leave behind. They’re lost in their own pain.”

Wallach nodded and said, “Not pulling the trigger was an act of courage. Your work here is not done.”

“And you know this how? Are you omnipotent?”

“All knowing? No. Let’s just say I have night vision.”

“You can see the future?”

“The future is made up of myriad possibilities, all predicated on the choices we make, or fail to make, each and every day.”

Reagan thought about that for a moment, before asking, “So is there an alternate reality, one in which you came home from Kuwait?”

“There is only one reality; but I am attuned to all possibilities, including the one of which you spoke.”

“How do you bear it?” Reagan said. “Knowing what might’ve been?”

“It brings me much comfort.”

“Don’t you feel cheated?”

“No. My life played out as it should have. My widow and daughter would not be the people they are today had I come home from Kuwait.”

“How do you know they wouldn’t be better off?”

For the first time since he’d begun haunting Reagan’s dreams, Wal­lach looked uncertain, as if he didn’t know how much he could, or should, share with the living.

“My death set something into motion.” And then, as if he couldn’t – or wasn’t allowed – to say more, Wallach changed direction.

Message from Author J. Conrad Guest:

“Welcome. If you’re reading these words, you have my thanks for finding me. A critic calls my work, “Gritty, entertaining… real. Romance for the non-romantic.”

Genre? What’s that? My characters face everyday obstacles: love (finding it), loss of love (ouch!), regret (who doesn’t have a few of those?), infidelity (from love to hate to compromise), death (the Grim Reaper recently visited me in a dream to tell me he was coming for me. “Great,” my dream self said. “You bring the whiskey and I’ll provide the cigars”), redemption (that transformation from the anti-hero the reader wants to like into the hero for whom they want to root), and more. I write about relationships between men and woman, and fathers and sons. Yet each character, although flawed and in some cases broken, is in their own way extraordinary. I write mainstream, non-traditional romance (Fabio will never grace the cover of one of my novels), and soft science fiction. I hope you’ll find here something that appeals to your literary appetite.

I was named Joseph Conrad for my dad’s favorite novelist.

As a boy my dream was to become a Major League Baseball player, but my parents had other ideas. They urged me to play it safe, to learn a trade, get a job with an automotive company, and retire in forty years with a gold watch. To me that was a prison sentence. I didn’t want to reach my current age wondering, What if?

I was creative and wanted to leave my mark on the world. How to go about achieving that dream perplexed me for many years, until I sat down to write my first novel. January’s Paradigm was born from a bloodied and bruised heart. What started as therapy for me turned into a passion. My dad often criticized me for not finishing what I started, and I was determined to finish a novel. When Dad read my second draft, after two years of labor, he was pleased.

While I geared up for submitting my child to agents and publishers I struggled for a name. A nom de plume was out of the question. I wanted to use “Conrad” but didn’t wish to be compared to the man who today is considered one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. I finally settled on J. Conrad Guest and have never regretted it.

My novels are available in brick and mortar bookstores and at Amazon in both print and Kindle versions.”

Hunter’s Venom: Detective Dice Modise Series Book 1 by Peter J. Earle

An English safari client dies in an African hunting tragedy. Or is it an accident? His daughter flies to the wild Okavango Delta of Botswana to find out, as CID detective Sergeant Dice Modise of the Botswana Police investigates. It is not the only case in his busy schedule: A girl is raped by three men who believe they now have the cure for their AIDS affliction because a powerful witchdoctor with a grudge has told them so. Lovers in a locked hut are burned to a crisp. Then there is another death that may not be a tragic accident, and when the English girl is kidnapped, it is a desperate race against time by Modise and his game-guide friend, Nick Cahill, to find her alive.

Briefly a Congo Mercenary, then a farmer in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, widower Jake Malan now lives alone in Johannesburg. Over seventy, he has cancer, and expects to not live long.

Sam: The Cat Without A Tail by Gloria Lintermans

Sam: The Cat Without A Tail follows the trials of Sam, a young Manx cat with a soft, white puff of a tail.

As he discovers that he is indeed different from everyone around him, he learns and helps to teach the importance and beauty of diversity and self-worth.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Sam: The Cat Without A Tail by Gloria Lintermans touched my heart. As a mother and grand-mother I think all parents and grand-parents should take the message in this book to heart and share this delightful, well written story with children of all ages.

Sam the cat, is a Manx kitten, which means he has a soft, white, cotton puff for a tail. It isn’t long before he becomes self-conscious that his tail is different from the tails of the cats coming into his yard.

Thinking that he is not welcome to curl up under the tree with his new friends, Sam retreats into isolation.

One day Sam finds out how smart, special and talented he really is and his despair turns to self-acceptance and the ability to join in on the activities around him.

The illustrations by Kristina Tosicare are remarkable. The truth within the story needs to be shared with all children. Any and all attempts to boost the self-esteem of children around us, is our adult responsibility.

Author Gloria Lintermans gives some much-needed advice for parents and grand-parents at the end of this book. I encourage you to pick this book up in print or e-book and share it with the children around you. It is a story for all times.

I purchased Sam: The Cat Without A Tail so I can share its message with my grand-children. I hope Author Gloria Lintermans writes more books to help children and educate the adults around them. My review posted on April 18, 2019.

The Secrets to Stepfamily Success: Revolutionary Tools to Create a Blended Family of Support and Success by Gloria Lintermans

“[Secrets for Stepfamily Success] is the most thorough work on stepfamilies I have seen… a handbook of great value for both professionals and stepfamily members in navigating the complex territory of stepfamily life.” -Joan Sarin, M.S., Founder, Stepfamily Solutions (www.StepmomSOS.com)

“This book is a valuable resource that I will recommend to everyone I meet who is either divorced and starting a new relationship or who is already part of a stepfamily.” -Natalie Franklin, Administrator, Life in a Blender.

“This is probably the most comprehensive book I’ve read in a very long time…. easy to read and to understand. I can definitely see this as a great tool for professionals working with stepfamilies as well and individuals and couples contemplating forming one.” -Claudette L. Chenevert, Stepfamily Life Coach, Coaching Steps LLC

The secrets to Stepfamily Success offers tools that can significantly lower the alarming rate of step and blended family divorce, helping families evolve into highly nurturing, reliable refuges of warmth, safety, encouragement, strength, caring, and joy.

Step and blended families have a unique dynamic with which couples must cope, along with all the other normal challenges of life and marriage. See how these families differ in up to sixty structural and dynamic ways from typical intact biological families-including consisting of two co-parenting homes and ex-spouses-and learn how to successfully recognize and manage these challenges. For most couples, trying to build a successful remarriage can mysteriously bring out their deepest personal fears, longings, shames, and hopes.

The key to not only survival, but also living this journey well, begins with discovering opportunities to heal and to succeed; it is not about blame or badness. With the right preparation and resources, a multi-home step or blended family can be a stable and solid foundation for co-parents and children.

The Sitcom Murders 1: Sexy Sixties Sitcom by Nicholas Victor (aka Nick Iuppa)

What if the heroine of an immensely popular television sitcom suddenly learned that her show was being turned into a horror series by a deranged screenwriter? What if she was able to drive over to the writer’s home and confront him? What if she then learned that he was able to give her the power to defend herself and even begin to love the murder and mayhem of HORROR? And then, after she had eliminated three homicidal maniacs, he explained that he had more work for her… more sitcom murders.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: This first installment of The Sitcom Murders is a dark comedy about a sexy sixties TV character who suddenly realizes that her TV show has become a horror story and she just might be the first victim.

Lacy Livingood, the TV heroine, is home alone when a madman suddenly begins breaking down her kitchen door. Terrified by his hideous stocking mask and threats of rape and murder, Lacy beats him off with a frying pan, then rushes to her car and drives across LA to find the show’s writer. She’s not sure what to expect, but aging screenwriter Billy Edelman explains it all.

“Ya know, for a girl half the world thinks is brilliant, you’re a little slow on the uptick,” Billy answered. “You and Johnny and Ronnie are characters, in a sitcom, a very popular one fifty years ago. Look at this.” And with that Edelman clicked a link and entered eBay. He typed in “Lacy Livingood” and pages and pages of Lacy Livingood memorabilia confronted him: autographed photos, scripts from the show, clothes she had worn.

“But our show’s not on anymore,” Lacy whispered.

“People’re always lookin’ for somethin’ fresh,” Billy answered. “If not new characters, at least old characters in new stories. And that’s what I’ve given them.”

“So now I’m the main character in a horror story,” Lacy said at last. “Okay. But if I have to be in this show of yours, at least teach me how to defend myself. You can do that much for me can’t you?”

And Billy could; in fact, he could help Lacy learn to enjoy murder as much as his villains… but with dire consequences.

Author Nicholas Victor (aka Nick Iuppa) has given us something never seen before, a TV sitcom character who actively conspires with her show’s living writer to defeat the bad guys. There is a fine line between reality and fiction, TV characters and real people, self-preservation and blood lust. And sexy Lacy finds herself right at the crossroads of everything and loving it.

If you enjoy dark humor, pick up a copy of The Sitcom Murders I – SEXY SIXTIES SUBURBIA. I’m sure you will enjoy the read and find yourself looking forward to the next installment. (A preview of The Sitcom Murders II: SEVENTIES NEWSROOM is available as part of the first book).

I think you’ll find yourself as curious as I am about where the author will go with this new series…and just who Lacy Livingood will murder next.

The Peacemaker Series

*************************

Alien Mission (The Peacemaker Book 1) by Nick Iuppa, John Pesqueira

CTHULHU MEETS THE DA VINCI CODE When young teen, Victor Encinas desecrates a religious shrine in order to join his brother’s gang, he finds himself drawn into a world of alien spaceships, insectile high priests, and an interplanetary religion that seeks to take over the earth. Somehow, he finds that the most popular girl in school is in love with him and he’s been appointed The Peacemaker. The first book in The Peacemaker Series introduces us to the desert metropolis of Tumac City where a historic Spanish mission has been watched and studied by alien priests for centuries. The benevolent high priest of the unearthly religion is nearing the end of his life. And a revolt on his planet may soon bring about the return to ancient barbaric ways and the ascent of his depraved son. That shape-shifting monster has been exiled to Earth and kept in check by a series of human Peacemakers chosen by the high priest himself, and Victor is next in line for the role.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: This is not your typical Alien Invasion.

If you are new to Nick Iuppa and John Pesqueira’s books, you are in for a surprisingly powerful paranormal adventure. Those of us who have been following these authors, find this first book in The Peacemaker series, a masterful beginning.

Imagine a terrifying supernatural experience that gives you incredible powers! This is exactly what happens to a teenager named Victor Encinas, who is so desperate to join his brother’s gang that he desecrates a religious shrine as part of his initiation. And then:

“Suddenly a beam of intense white light shoots down at Victor and blinds him for a moment. He falls to his knees and feels himself jerked up feet-first into the sky above the church. The building, the truck, and the whole parking lot seem to jump back violently until he finds himself suspended hundreds of feet over them. Victor twists up to look into the light that has captured him, but its brilliance overwhelms him. “GOD ALMIGHTY!” he calls.”

Does God have anything to do with it? Victor is freed from the beam of light but soon learns that he has just been chosen to become a human peacemaker and stand against an exiled alien high priest who is plotting an interplanetary religious take-over of the earth.

As US government, Native American, and Religious authorities work (sometimes at cross purposes) to understand the strange puzzle pieces coming together near the mission, a series of grisly serial killings begin. And then, as if young Victor doesn’t have enough on his mind, he finds the most popular girl in school falling in love with him, becoming a great help and support, but, in the process, also a target of the killer.

If you enjoyed reading The DA VINCI CODE, you will not want to miss “Alien Mission,” the first installment of The Peacemaker series. Take special note of the extensive list of characters at the beginning of this book, as the authors will build on this list going forward. This story is beyond your wildest imagination, and it is only the beginning.

I look forward to what comes next in The Peacemaker series. I purchased this book in Kindle and this review posted on December 13, 2018.

Avenging Adelita by Nick Iuppa and John P. Mendoza

A tender romance with a ticking time bomb at its heart.

There’s a bomb on this train. It will explode before you reach your final destination…because you murdered my wife.

University professor Tom McKeever has just lost his wife Adelita to cancer. But the more he thinks about it, the more he realizes she didn’t have to die.

The faculty and administration of the university where he teaches in Mexico played a major role in causing her death.

Now, Tom relives powerful memories of his life with Adelita as he and the rest of the faculty take a train ride into the mountains. He plans to gain revenge by blowing up the train, killing all those who have wronged him and everyone else on board… including himself.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Nick Iuppa, Author of ‘Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games, has teamed up with John P. Mendoza to bring us another fast-paced, action suspense thriller that will keep readers turning pages and biting their nails.

There’s a large cast of unique characters, many of whom are confined to business class cars on the Copper Canyon Railway as it speeds through the Grand Canyon of Mexico, unaware of the impending man-made disaster that’s about to shatter the serene environment.

Somewhere in the process of grieving for his lost wife, Adelita, his “warrior woman” love, Professor

Tom McKeever walks a thin line between reality and golden memories that keep pulling him back into his-her beauty, delicious aroma, and open arms. The gut-wrenching knowledge that there was an experimental cancer treatment that might have saved Adelita’s life, had it not been for the decisions of one man, is more than Tom can bear. The need for revenge seethes like red-hot embers but conflicts with thoughts dredged up from a Catholic School upbringing: “Vengeance is mine, saith the lord!”

Time is running out, but somehow the collateral damage begins to seem more and more defensible, a justifiable murder suicide. Is it? Find out; come ride the rails into Copper Canyon when time is definitely not on your side.

I endorse Avenging Adelita by Nick Iuppa & John P. Mendoza as these two authors give the reader what they have come to expect; great descriptive writing, with dialog and startling transitions from present to past and back again placing the reader in the mind of this widower.

Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games by Nick Iuppa

“Nick Iuppa loops a brilliant mix of technology, romance, military lore, and vampires into a terrifying, sexy spree in the Swiss Alps. The details are 3D. If you’re looking for a heart-pounder, this is it.” S.B. Stinnet

The castle of 15th century duchess Elizabeth Laskaar looks down on the little Swiss village of Murdenwald and the secretive military complex nearby. There, the UN hopes to end world conflict with a vast military simulation that will dramatize the apocalypse that will follow the next major war. To head the project, they hire notorious Hollywood producer Donald Vito, master of explosive action adventures, who still mourns the murder of his teenage love in the 1950s.

Vito and the simulation team use new technology to build hundreds of virtual soldiers and terrorists you can touch, speak to, and reason with. But they also begin to feel the influence of Elizabeth Laskaar. She’s often called Bloody Bess – the first real vampire – because she maintained her youthful beauty by slaughtering her maidservants and bathing in their blood.

Recklessly inspired by their surroundings, the team creates a virtual vampire that soon takes on the characteristics of Elizabeth’s magnificent, long-dead husband. Soon, he and Bess stalk the compound, seducing everyone working on the project, until vampire blood surges beyond the humans to the virtual characters with unthinkable consequences. In the end, perhaps, only the power of Vito’s long-lost love can save humanity.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games is a magnificent fictional horror drama featuring ancient vampires, teenage romance, and a top-secret military project. The Doomsday Games, as the project is called, involves a team of international scientists, engineers, and military personnel who gather in the ancient town of Murdenwald, Switzerland, to do no less then put an end to war.

Nick Iuppa developed a cast of authentic and unique characters like Elizabeth Laskaar (Duchess of Hungry) known as “Bloody Bess” to her victims in 1580 in the small village of Nyirbator Hungary. She prowled the streets of Murdenwald seeking out young women to murder so that she could bathe in their blood. Her husband Ferenc, some say, is still the director of the town’s ancient library. A most beautiful man with midnight blue eyes, he waits for naïve young women to come to his tower and aid him in his evil work. Then there’s Donny Vito, the world’s greatest film producer, called upon by the U. S. President to breathe life into the Doomsday Games. Elli Capadonico is the girl Donny loved in his youth; she fell victim to Arnie Cudgel, an obsessive young man with both romantic and sadistic intentions. The cast also includes scientists, mathematicians, military personnel, writers, artists, technicians, Chu Yun Trang (the director of a rogue nation seeking to build nuclear weapons), and a myriad of simulated characters who populate the virtual Armageddon.

Nick’s highly descriptive writing takes the reader from the Middles Ages to a 1950s high school romance, to mysteries surrounding the ‘knowledge’ held in the ancient Murdenwald Library, to the International Simulation Center itself where the final challenge becomes solving “the God Problem.” Nick weaves these stories together so skillfully that the separate lines merge to become plot twists in an amazing and unexpected ending.

The author, Nick Iuppa, is the son of a prominent Rochester, New York doctor. Nick attended the University of Notre Dame and did his graduate work at Stanford. Nick’s first job was at MGM Studios in Hollywood where he worked on TV specials with Dr. Seuss and Chuck Jones (creator of the Road Runner). He also had the privilege of writing for the Wonderful World of Disney, working as an instructional designer for Eastman Kodak, leading Bank of America’s in-house TV production group, managing the Learning Technologies Group within Apple Computer, and finally returning to Paramount Pictures in Hollywood where he designed Internet entertainment and built Hollywood-style simulations for the military.

Nick’s extensive travels to Europe have inspired some of his characters and settings. His work history, technical knowledge, and experience have given him the tools and concepts for his novels.

I endorse Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games by Nick Iuppa for the creative genius of the Doomsday Game. This review was completed on October 2, 2014.

Esteban Meets Alicia by Nick Iuppa, John Pesqueira

As two escaped convicts and the worst sandstorm in recorded memory descend on the little town of La Sentencia, Arizona, Esteban Dorantes encounters a mysterious and beautiful woman.

Esteban’s Quest by Nick Iuppa, John Pesqueira

Magical Madness

A fireball launches itself from the Arizona desert leaving behind three camels, a magical jukebox, and a five-year-old girl who only speaks Italian.

Soon, the nearby town of La Sentencia is reeling from a series of disasters. The copper mine, which supports the town, shuts down leaving most of the population unemployed. Massive sandstorms batter the place. And then the Devlin Lucero shows up. He seduces a pretty substitute teacher and then uses her to spread greed, anger, and vengeance everywhere.

In the face of all these trials, Esteban Dorantes decides to retrace the steps of his great, great grandfather, who once led a quest to find the Seven Cities of Gold. Aided by the camels, the wisdom of the little girl, and the spirit of the magical jukebox, he hopes to locate a great treasure and bring it back to save La Sentencia.

Esteban is accompanied by Ceci Moreno, his old high school sweetheart, the only person in town who doesn’t think he’s a madman. But Ceci is still in love Gabriel Romo, another dreamer who somehow feels he can bargain with the devil to save the mine and the town.

Wacky, scary and spectacular, Esteban’s Quest blends science fiction, Aztec lore, classic horror, and offbeat humor into an unforgettable tale of love, destiny, magic, and redemption.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Step aside Indiana Jones. There’s a new adventurer in town. Esteban Dorantes may be a little more reluctant, but he has an even greater sense of destiny than even Dr. Jones. Dorantes is goaded by the desperate needs of his impoverished hometown and visions of his great, great grandfather… an African slave who once led Spanish Conquistadors on the first quest for the Seven Cities of Gold.

The story opens in the Arabian Desert where a wall of wind a mile high and a hundred miles wide, roars though an oasis carrying off a husband and wife team of archeologists but leaving behind their five-year-old daughter.

We move to La Sentencia, a small town in Arizona, which is devastated by its own windstorms and other disasters including the immanent closing of a copper mine… the only business in that part of the state.

What’s the link between these two desolate desert locations… the little Italian girl who suddenly shows up on the winds of a sandstorm to advise the residents in Arizona? And then there’s an ancient artifact that may have been left by space travelers. Does it hold the key to the building of great earthly civilizations… and the salvation of La Sentencia?

Esteban Dorantes must have some sense of all this as he decides, at the little girl’s bidding, to takes up his great grand-fathers quest for The Golden Cities and save his home town in the process.

The novel’s fifty-six chapters of action-packed adventure may surpass some of the greatest quests ever told, with its Aztec lore, science fiction spacecraft, magical jukebox, a destiny that spans generations, horror, humor, three camels, talking coyotes, a very sexy substitute high school teacher, the devil himself, and, of course, a love story.

I invite everyone to read Esteban’s Quest and experience this compelling tale for themselves.

I endorse Esteban’s Quest by Nick Iuppa and John Pesqueira. I encourage you to purchase other books by the team including: The Carlos Mann Trilogy (Alicia’s Ghost, Alicia’s Sin, Alicia Bewitched) and Avenging Adelita (romance), in addition to the stand-alone novels by Nick Iuppa include Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games (fictional horror drama featuring ancient vampires, teenage romance, and a top-secret military project) and Taken by Witches (a modern horror story based on Grimm’s Fairy Tales).

Taken By Witches by Nick Iuppa

When he was a child, Niko Madonie was terrified of his over-protective grandmother. Somehow, he knew she was a witch possessed of overwhelming supernatural powers and determined to save him from the real and imagined dangers of the modern world.

Now a successful writer in Hollywood, Niko is helping create an animated version of Hansel and Gretel while he struggles to protect his beautiful young wife from sexy, New Age witches who hope to sacrifice her to please the ancient crone.

This is an epic horror romance set against a background of legends, with complex villains, a magical young couple, and a storyline straight from the darkest pages of the Brothers Grimm.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: If you have ever thought that reading Grimm’s Fairy Tales to your children or grandchildren might frighten them, then you’d better keep the lights on while reading Taken by Witches to yourself.

Author Nick Iuppa asks questions you might not ask aloud. “Do witches exist; where does their power come from, and to what ends will they use it?”

Masterfully written, this multifaceted story begins in the small Polish village of Zakopane high in the Carpathian Mountains. A warlock skillfully tells the story to a shopkeeper and his young daughter after he returns a collection of gruesome masks that the shopkeeper once sent to America so they wouldn’t fall into the hands of the Nazis. The masks are all images of the same woman, a witch named Babcia (pronounced Bob-cha) the Polish name for grandmother.

The warlock’s story begins with a young boy named Niko Madonie who realizes that his grandmother has supernatural powers that terrify him up until the day she dies. As an adult, Niko marries and becomes a successful writer in Hollywood. But even there he is haunted by memories of Babcia and he finds he must struggle to protect his wife from new age witches who decide to sacrifice the beautiful young woman to please the ancient crone.

Imagine Babcia’s evil smell: (the stench of blood sausage mixed with the spicy sweetness of gingerbread) and realize that ancient history doesn’t always stay in the past. Centuries after Niko’s grandmother lost her first baby to medieval witch hunters, she bears a new family to a new husband in a new land, America. But even in this future place and time, she remembers the vow she made when the infant was murdered: “Atrocities to her loved ones will never happen again,” no matter what the consequences.

Author Nick Iuppa has impressive credentials as the former Creative Director of Paramount Pictures’ Digital Entertainment, Head of Apple Computer’s Learning Technologies Group, and Writer for the Wonderful World of Disney.

I endorse Taken by Witches by Nick Iuppa as a modern horror story based on Grimm’s Fairy Tales, which first brought the essence of ancient witchcraft into America’s bedtime stories. Nick’s other novels include Alicia’s Ghost, Alicia’s Sin, Alicia Bewitched, Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games, and Avenging Adelita.  I purchased this book from Kindle.

The Witch Within Her by Nick Iuppa

The Witch Within Her (sequel to Taken By Witches).

Sexy, Stunning, Relentless Horror

A possessed child is caught in a war between witches!

Spanning centuries of horror and witchcraft, the powerful sequel to Taken By Witches tells how Babcia Czarownica, the greatest of all witches, does battle with far more seductive members of her craft. She must confront a lustful priest, a predatory lover, a vengeful undead beauty, and the unspeakable evil hiding at the top of Rapunzel’s Tower… all to save her beloved grandson and his family from utter annihilation. And she must accomplish all this while sharing the body of an eight-year-old girl.

The Battle For The Alamo Taqueria by Nick Iuppa, John Pesqueira

Remember The Taqueria

When vigilantes gun down her uncle during an illegal border crossing, an idealistic young Mexican woman decides to make a dramatic political statement by leading a strike force to recapture the Alamo. Then international spies, Hollywood celebrities, the American President, the whole Mexican army, and a teenage kid with a tank become involved… and everything spins out of control

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: In this very funny and interesting read, a dreamy young Mexican woman name Claudia Madero joins a group who tries to cross the US/Mexican border illegally and is shot at by American vigilantes.

Her aging uncle is mortally wounded in the incident, and – after being returned to her hometown – she partners with a local priest and a successful merchant in an attempt to make a dramatic statement about the negative consequences of US border policies.

Why not recapture the Alamo, she decides, draw the attention of the press, and force an honest debate about the issue?

Of course, there are bungling players on all sides of this comedy, and Claudia and her “Army” end up liberating, not the real Alamo, but a Taqueria designed as a replica of the historic shrine. It doesn’t seem to matter though. The US President decides that he too wants to make a statement and so he sends the US Marines to confront her.

No matter what your political view, we feel that it is important that everyone be informed about both sides of this complex and difficult issue. This is not the time to ignore current events and become a bystander.

If you like Saturday Night Live, you will love this book. I could see some chapters as a skit with the actor Alic Baldwin cast as Donald Trump.

I endorse The Battle For The Alamo Taqueria as a powerful but humorous presentation of an important side of the immigration issue and perhaps a warning about apocalyptic consequences. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on February 27, 2018.

About The Author: Linda Burson, a native of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, has been writing ever since she was a teenager. She started out writing memoirs and continued writing by attempting several nonfiction pieces.

After attending college for a couple of years, she left to pursue other interests and to travel California, the state in which she resided at the time. Besides traveling, a lot of her free time was spent reading mysteries, romance and women’s contemporary novels. During this time, Linda met and married Anthony Burson, now her husband of over 30 years. They left California when Anthony joined the U.S. Army, which gave them the opportunity to travel the United States, Europe, and even live in Germany where they gave birth to their first daughter, Amanda. Once they returned to the U.S., they relocated to Connecticut and had their second daughter, Kayla.

As an adult, Linda attempted additional writing projects in more difficult subject matters. She tried to write her grandfather’s life story—his life in Italy and his move to Buenos Aires and entrance into America through Ellis Island. She found his escapades as a young coal miner in West Virginia and his later years as a train hopping hobo to be fascinating. Unfortunately, life got in the way and Linda never completed his story. One day she hopes to make another attempt at completing it.

After several other attempts at writing nonfiction and assisting her youngest daughter, Kayla, with a children’s story, she gave up writing to focus on raising her two daughters, being a wife, running her own custom computerized embroidery business and taking care of her dog, a Lhasa Apso named Nathan. After a serious bout of breast cancer, Linda eventually closed down her business after almost 15 years. She decided it was time to attempt writing again. This time, however, with nothing to distract her, she decided on tackling fiction, a contemporary romance with a dark edge.

In January of 2013, she sat down with her laptop and started writing notes about how her novel would progress. After that, the writing began and it never stopped. Before she was aware of it, her idea of a single book turned into a trilogy, which turned into a much longer series. 

When asked about inspiration, Linda has this to say: “Nobody really inspired me to write, but I do remember my mother and father always saying ‘anything you put your mind to you can accomplish. Don’t ever let anyone tell you, you can’t do something.’” Having the support and encouragement of my husband Anthony and my two daughters, Amanda and Kayla, is also very important. Having my youngest daughter Kayla, who is a writer and editor as well, to offer advice and knowledge has helped me to stay focused and continue to write.

No More Hallelujahs by Ann Christine Tabaka

Welcome to my ninth book of poetry, and my first chapbook. Being a chapbook, all the poems are themed to fit the title, No More Hallelujahs, remembering past glory and losing it to the present times. Some of it is deep and heart wrenching, but hopefully also enlightening, and a reminder that we all have something to be thankful for, something to lose if we cease to keep it close to us. Memories are powerful gifts to each of us. I want to thank everyone who has supported me and helped me along the way, especially my husband Karl and my son Damon. Please enjoy the journey! Namaste!

Just Breathe by Ann Christine Tabaka

Just Breathe is my seventh book of poetry, which includes two Haiku & Senryu books. This is my first book of all micro-poems. I love the challenge of telling a complete story in as few words as possible like a breath of fresh air. It allows the imagination to fill in the details and paint its own picture.

Review: The philosophical wisdom and depth of these poems reveals Ann Christine Tabaka’s brilliance as a poet. Her concise and terse expression is quite impressive in such immortal phrases and lines, full of profound thoughts: “music is beauty/ to the soul”, “the delicious feeling / of no place to be”, “beneath the surface / lies the truth”, “the moon calls my name/ it knows me well”. The poems included in JUST BREATHE by Ann Christine Tabaka, one of the greatest contemporary poets, have an irresistible appeal. –Santosh Kumar, Editor, Cyberwit.net

Reaching For Dawn by Ann Christine Tabaka

Reaching for Dawn is my sixth book of poems, which includes two books of Haiku & Senryu style poems. As my life has changed with age, my style has changed, and hopefully grown, since I first started writing rhymes and musings in the 1960’s. I now see the universe on a deeper level than I did in my youth. 

Once again, I hope that you enjoy the journey as you travel with me into the inner depths of my observations, my mind, and my feelings. Maybe you will find a little of your own thoughts and feeling in my words as you read along.

Everlasting: A Lifetime Of Poems by Ann Christine Tabaka

Welcome to my third book of rhymes, poems, and musings. My first book was Overcast Mind, My life in Poems, and my second book was It Is Still Morning, A continuation of My Life in Poems. As my life changes and evolves, so does my reason for writing. What once started out as a means of survival has now grown into a passion.

I write because something deep inside me calls out to me to do so. I have added some of my original sketches and illustrations again in this book. A few of them are new ones I drew this year. Once again, I invite you to join along with me in a journey of fantasy, of truth, and of life events. Like real life, sometimes my poems are happy, silly, contemplative, questioning, sad, or even desperate.

Second Story Man by Charles Salzberg

Francis Hoyt, arrogant, athletic, brilliant, manipulative and ruthless, is a master burglar. He specializes in stealing high-end silver, breaking into homes that seem impenetrable. He’s never been caught in the act, although he has spent some time in prison on a related charge, time he used to hone his craft and make valuable connections. (Hoyt is based on two real-life master burglars: the so-called Dinnertime Bandit, who only stole when his victims were home, and The Silver Thief, who was only interested in high-end silver). Hoyt follows the money. In the winter, he works down south, primarily in southern Florida and Georgia, around the Atlanta area. Summers, he moves back up north, where he plies his trade in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

One day, Charlie Floyd, brilliant, stubborn, an experienced investigator, who has recently retired from his job with the attorney general’s department for the state of Connecticut, receives a phone call from Manny Perez, a Cuban-American Miami police detective. Perez, who’s worked with Floyd previously, wants to enlist the former investigator in his efforts to put an end to Francis Hoyt’s criminal career. Floyd accepts the offer and they team up to bring Hoyt to justice.

Second Story Man, told in alternating chapters, representing Hoyt’s, Floyd’s and Perez’s points-of-view, develops into a cat-and-mouse contest between the two lawmen and this master burglar. As Floyd and Perez get closer to their prey, Hoyt finds out they’re after him and rather than backing down, he taunts them, daring them to bring him in. As the story develops, the stakes get higher and higher, and Hoyt, who is always concerned about proving he’s the best at what he does, even resorts to murder. Eventually, the story climaxes in a confrontation between the three men.

Henry Swann Mystery Series

Swann’s Last Song: Henry Swann
Mystery Book One by Charles Salzberg

Skip tracer Henry Swann cares little about anything but money, so when a beautiful Upper East Side woman shows up in his office and hires him to find her missing husband, he smiles and takes the cash. But when this seemingly simple missing-person case turns into homicide, Swann finds himself trapped in a complex web of connections and multiple identities that takes him out of New York City and across two continents.

Praise for SWANN’S LAST SONG … “Swann’s got the smarts and hard-boiled cynicism of Sam Spade, but he’s also got a wicked sense of humor that keeps things cool even when the action gets hot.” —Brian Kilmeade, author of New York Times bestseller The Games Do Count

“Salzberg’s a hell of a writer. He delivers thrills, insight and plenty of laughs. Swann is a very cool take on the classic P.I.” —Andrew Klavan, author of True Crime and Don’t Say a Word

“A veritable travelogue of suspense, SWANN’S LAST SONG grabs hold of the reader and doesn’t let go. Salzberg’s anti-hero is a soulful investigator and one of the most paradoxically endearing characters I’ve come across. I hope this isn’t Swann’s last song.” —Joy Behar (co-host of The View)

“Salzberg defies expectations left and right in this subtly subversive, genre-twisting page turner. SWANN’S LAST SONG is where literature meets entertainment” —Mark Goldblatt, author of Africa Speaks

Swann Dives In: Henry Swann Mystery Book Two by Charles Salzberg

Swann Dives In is a mystery that goes deep and rarely lets the reader catch a breath.

Henry Swann’s last case nearly killed him, emotionally and physically. Now he’s sworn off his old profession and taken on a steady gig. But climbing stairs to hook poor people up to cable is hard on his knees… and not the kind of connections he’s good at making. So when an opportunity arises to bring order to chaos for a price –his secret pleasure in life –Swann is pulled back in.

The case starts simply, with a call to find a burglary suspect who’s gone on the lam. But Swann is soon on the trail of a wealthy lawyer’s rebellious daughter, who’s disappeared along with her disreputable boyfriend.

Finding the beau leads him into the dangerous midst of cutthroat academics, sexy librarians, and killer book collectors, with a priceless first edition of Tender is the Night the surprising prize along the way.

Swann’s Lake of Despair: Henry Swann
Mystery Book Three by Charles Salzberg

When rare photos‚ a scandalous diary‚ and a beautiful woman all go missing at once‚ the stage is set for three challenging cases for Henry Swann.

It begins with an offer to partner up with his slovenly‚ unreliable frenemy‚ Goldblatt. The disbarred lawyer-turned- “facilitator” would provide the leads and muscle‚ while Swann would do all the fancy footwork. A lost diary by a free-loving Jazz Age flapper is worth enough to someone that Swann takes a beat down on an abandoned boardwalk.

Pilfered photos of Marilyn Monroe propel him deep into the past of an alcoholic shutterbug‚ his wife; and he’s hired to search for a lonely writer’s runaway girlfriend. The cases converge and collide in a finale that lifts the curtain on crucial‚ deadly facts of life for everyone—including Swann himself.

Praise for Swann’s Lake of Despair: “Smart, satisfying, even profound, this is exactly what every mystery reader is looking for: A terrific story, full of wit and originality, and a master class in voice. Charles Salzberg is a true talent, and his Henry Swann is a classic — complex, hilarious, and completely charming.” —Hank Phillippi Ryan, Mary Higgins Clark award winner for The Other Woman, Agatha winner for The Wrong Girl

Swann’s Way Out: Henry Swann
Mystery Book Four by Charles Salzberg

A friendly poker game leads Henry Swann out to Hollywood where he tries to find the man, Rusty Jacobs, responsible for embezzling $1,000,000 from his client, and then bring back the dough. Swann finds Jacobs, but the mercurial wannabe film producer is involved in a “surefire” movie project aimed at the growing Christian market. And the money? Well, it seems to have vanished into thin air.

At the same time, thanks to his irrepressible partner, Goldblatt, Swann finds himself knee-deep in the New York City art world, as he tries to get justice for another client who’s possibly been defrauded on the purchase of a valuable painting that may or may not be a fake.

As if this isn’t enough to keep him busy, in the midst of these two troubling cases, Swann finds that the teenage son whom he hasn’t seen in a dozen years has run away from his grandparent’s Minnesota home and, chasing after a girl, has possibly become involved with a cult. And so, a guilt-ridden Swann has to take time out from his paying cases to find his son.

Swann’s Down: Henry Swann Mystery
Book Five by Charles Salzberg

When Henry Swann is asked by his quirky partner, Goldblatt, to find a missing psychic who’s swindled his ex-wife out of a small fortune, he just can’t say no. Although he doesn’t actually expect to get paid, he figures it might give him a chance to finally learn more about his partner’s mysterious past. His search takes him into the controversial, arcane world of psychics, fortunetellers, and charlatans, while raising questions in his own mind about whether or not there is an after-life.

While working his partner’s case, he’s approached by a former employer, attorney Paul Rudder, to track down a missing witness who might be able to provide an alibi for his client, Nicky Diamond, a notorious mob hitman who’s scheduled to go on trial in a week for murder he claims he didn’t commit. Swann’s search for the missing witness, who happens to be the defendant’s girlfriend, takes him from Brooklyn to a small beach town across the bay from Mobile, Alabama. But what does she really know and will she even come back with him to testify for her boyfriend?

Praise for SWANN’S DOWN:

“From Manhattan to Coney Island to the steamy shores of Alabama, Charles Salzberg delivers a top-flight mystery with his latest Henry Swann outing. Highly recommended.” –Tom Straw, New York Times bestselling author as Richard Castle

“Psychics, double-crosses, missing persons–Charles Salzberg’s latest Henry Swann book has it all. Swann’s Down is a gritty, no-frills PI novel that brings to mind greats like Reed Farrel Coleman’s Moe Prager and Michael Harvey’s Michael Kelly. Whether this is your first Swann adventure or the latest, you won’t want to miss the brass-knuckle punch that is Swann’s Down. Trust me.” –Alex Segura, author of Blackout and Dangerous Ends

“Swann’s Down gives readers two intriguing mysteries for the price of one, as skip tracer Henry Swann pursues a woman who might alibi a murderer and a psychic who swindled the ex-wife of Swann’s partner. Swann’s wry wit, quotes from authors and philosophers, genius for questioning suspects, and dark past make him a character readers will follow anywhere as he seeks his quarry. This is another thrilling addition to this excellent series.” –Rich Zahradnik, Shamus Award-winning author of Lights Out Summer

“Henry Swann dives in where others fear to tread in Swann’s Down. Fast. Funny. And smart. This time out, Swann crosses paths with a psycho hitman, a phony psychic and Swann’s mysterious partner, a disbarred lawyer. Who could ask for more? I hope we’ll see a lot more of Swann in the future and that this isn’t Swann’s swan song.” –Paul D. Marks, Shamus Award-winning author of White Heat and Broken Windows

Final Book In The Henry Swann Mystery
Series by Charles Salzberg Coming Later in 2019

*************************

Devil In the Hole (stand-alone) by Charles Salzberg

In the ballroom of a sparsely furnished Connecticut mansion, police find a shocking sight: four bodies lined up next to each other, three teenagers and a middle-aged woman, each lying on a blanket, each shot once in the head. In an upstairs bedroom: an elderly woman and the family dog, both of them shot as well. The only person missing is the husband, father, son, and prime suspect, John Hartman, who’s got a three-week jump on the police.

Through the eyes of almost two dozen characters, including the neighbor who reports the crime, Hartman’s mistress, a dogged state investigator, the family minister, and some of the characters Hartman meets on his escape route, we piece together not only what happened and how these shocking murders affect the community, but how John Hartman evades capture, where he’s headed, and maybe even why he committed this gruesome crime in the first place.

Based on the notorious John List murders and already compared to works by Norman Mailer and Russell Banks, DEVIL IN THE HOLE is gripping, literate, and haunting.

Praise for DEVIL IN THE HOLE …

“DEVIL IN THE HOLE is powerful stuff. Drawing on real events, Salzberg has crafted a mesmerizing tale in many voices. He masterfully drip-feeds the compelling story, funneling moments from disparate, scattered lives to define the personality of a madman. The overall effect is like slowly opening a beautifully wrapped box of poisoned chocolates.” — Tim McLoughlin, editor Brooklyn Noir.

“Salzberg masterfully weaves together dozens of voices, including the killer’s, in an effort to find out why a man would murder his entire family and then disappear. DEVIL IN THE HOLE is a haunting meditation on the thin, wavering line between sense and senselessness.” — Kaylie Jones, author Lies My Mother Never Told Me: A Memoir, and Speak Now

“The devil isn’t in the details, but in a tony Connecticut town. Charles Salzberg’s DEVIL IN THE HOLE is a fine piece of crime writing and a hell of a fun read.” — Reed Farrel Coleman, three-time Shamus Award-winning author of Gun Church

In this smartly constructed crime novel, Salzberg uses multiple viewpoints to portray an unlikely killer who methodically slaughters his family … an intriguing collage of impressions and personal perspectives for the reader to ponder. — Publishers Weekly

“Salzberg does an ingenious job of weaving together the various voices — each distinct in its own right — and giving us the story as told by the people who experienced it. It paints a psychological picture of a murderer, while also telling the story of those left in the aftermath and how they were affected as well. Brilliant and captivating storytelling.” — Erica Ruth Neubauer, Crimespree magazine

“Salzberg has taken a true crime tale and made it into a compelling work of fiction that attempts to imagine the mind of a killer, not only through his own mind, but through the minds of many others. This is a novel which few readers will want to put down, turning pages mostly, I think, to find out how in the world the author pulls it off. ‘How,’ I kept asking myself, ‘how can he finish this story?’ The buildup becomes more and more absorbing because Charles Salzberg has a lot to say about human nature that is thought-provokingly wise and penetrating.” — Duff Brenna, South Carolina Review

“I am typically not a fan of books written in this manner but Salzberg masterfully uses this technique to create a novel that is different in an extremely good way. The author effortlessly blends the different perspectives, viewpoints, and impressions of each character into a brilliant tapestry that envelops the reader, while peaking interest and the desire for more information about the crime. DEVIL IN THE HOLE is one of the best books that I have read this year and I most highly recommend it.” — Robin Thomas, New Mystery Review

In the new world the Survivors inhabit, they have barely ten square kilometres of space to live in. They are restricted by the huge wetland at the one end and nothing after the aircraft wreck they’d discovered.

All around them in the forest are predators and wild life, while the sea contains great white sharks. With declining stocks of meal packs, they must focus on survival and how to find food and not falling prey to the omnipresent pride of lions.

They capture as much of life as they can while constantly remaining vigilant, always mindful that careless mistakes will cost lives.

Retribution Book 1: Seeds Of Revenge by David Harvey

Hout Bay and Camps Bay, two suburbs along the beautiful Atlantic seaboard next to Cape Town, South Africa, become the setting of 3 childhood friends, now adults who, relocating from America thanks a dual American and South African heritage, establish their long-cherished dream business in Hout Bay, a short distance away from Camps Bay.

With ready cash from early investments in Bitcoin they pay for their business, their cars, houses and lifestyle up front, in full, using their profits. This in turn unwittingly attracts the attention of a family kicked out of Columbia by authorities cleaning up the drug trade. They re-establish themselves in Camps Bay, taking aim at the growing heroin trade in the Western Cape.

The Columbians believe the Hout Bay business is a front for drugs and therefore competition and an initial low-scale approach to establish their version of the truth escalates when abalone poaching is thrown into the mix.

Sucked into something totally at odds with their world, the Hout Bay dream is threatened by the Camps Bay drug and abalone world.

Because the Colombians have their own dream – a world of drugs, violence and now abalone poaching. They don’t care who gets hurt or what it involves to grow their empire. After all, they’ve been doing it for a long time and no-one is going to stop them.

Retribution Book 2: Winter Revenge by Dave Harvey

“Revenge is a dish best served cold”

Cesar Quevedo aches for revenge, but can’t wait. The Cape Town winter rains are starting, when heads will be down and buried under umbrellas. That will be the time he’ll be looking to strike.

Dimitri Alfieri is also wanting revenge, but he understands the value of waiting. In the meantime he keeps digging away to unearth the Hout Bay secrets despite being warned off.

Drug money is missing and Guido Alfieri sends two psychopathic killers with their reputation for unspeakable brutality from Bogota to Cape Town to find it, prompting an unlikely alliance.

Needing fresh abalone suppliers, Cesar Quevedo meets Melissa Samuels, a key player in the game and surprises himself when he succumbs to her charms. But who exactly is she? Abalone poaching is not the game where you want to be following your heart.

While the Camps Bay drug and abalone poaching empire spend their time plotting and scheming, the Hout Bay team show that actions speak louder than words and carry out an ambush with military precision against Dimitri Alfieri.

He learns a painful, expensive lesson that leaves him in hospital with a huge question mark. How would anyone know where he would be at a specific time and what he would be carrying in the boot of his car?

Did it originate from Hout Bay? Could it really be the mysterious Chinese triad with their cryptic messages who seem to know all about them? Or is there an unknown new player trying to muscle in on their world?

It’s an elaborate but deadly game of chess, where the stakes are high and the longer the game goes on, the more dangerous it becomes.

“He who is prudent and lies in wait for an enemy who is not, will be victorious.”

Sun Tzu

About The Author: Dave Harvey was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1951.

He spent his early years in Linbro Park, a suburb of Johannesburg, on a small holding of peach trees, asparagus and rhubarb, exploring the long disused next-door cemetery, avoiding snakes and his grandpa’s beady eyes. (and they were eyes that missed nothing).

From there the family relocated to a farm in Chingola, Northern Rhodesia (later Zambia). Given the farm was carved out of virgin forest, it was back to avoiding snakes and other denizens of the thick bush – but all good learning curves.

From Zambia the family relocated to Rhodesia (later Zimbabwe) and from there Dave attended university in South Africa.

Somehow it seemed that all of his school years were spent at isolated boarding schools, buried deep in the bush in both Northern Rhodesia and Rhodesia, which may account for a lot of his admitted quirks.

After the bush war, when Rhodesia became Zimbabwe, he emigrated back to South Africa where he now lives in Cape Town.

The Story Of Jess and Aver: Giving Love A Chance by K. A. Neeson

How many people break up with their boyfriend, not talk for three months, then wake up one day and marry them right off the bat before they officially get back together again? Yes, that’s right. Married. Hell, I know it sounds crazy, but the conventional way (getting back together to work things out first) doesn’t usually work; we’ve seen that fail too many times. As nonsensical as it sounds, it could actually work…

Within a short time, frame, I experienced love, loss, reconciliation, and heartbreak. This is the story of my revelation, how I almost single-handedly destroyed the best thing that had ever befallen me, and the incidents and events that followed. My name is Aver, and this is my story.

The SHIVA Syndrome Trilogy:
(The Mind of Stefan Dürr, The Cosmic Ape,
The Interdimensional Nexus) by Alan Joshua

The saga of Beau Walker. More than a scientist, more than the offspring of a Mohawk–African American interracial marriage–and far more than human, Walker unknowingly holds the key to human evolution…and its obliteration.

Walker, is a disgraced researcher, snatched by the government and coerced to join a U.S./Russian multidisciplinary scientific team, searching for the cause of a Russian disaster related to covert U.S. mind and biowarfare.

Beginning with a terrifying descent into a Russian crater where physical laws don’t apply, he’s thrown into a world of advanced biotechnology, biowarfare, paranormal research, and military intrigue.

The stakes are unimaginable: Find and control the cause of the events or face human extinction.

Cold Coffee Review: From the very first paragraph, I was hooked on this prize-winning, sci-fi, paranormal adventure. If you are not afraid of the unknown and are willing to become part of this suspenseful page-turner, I strongly recommend this book.

Alan Joshua begins The SHIVA Syndrome Trilogy in the basement of a Russian brain research institute. If you’ve ever wondered if humans are being used in mind control experiments hidden in the underbelly of governments as scientific research, this realistic, fictional account will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck and pulse pound. Full of astonishing detail, it reads like a handbook for psychic development: “Stefan Dürr’s wiry frame hovered in a transparent, liquid-filled, vertical sensory deprivation tank. Naked, with the exception of a soft weight belt, straps battened down a round, silver helmet covering his head and shoulders. When he exhaled, a plastic umbilical line at the top released a stream of bubbles that crept through the viscous solution toward the surface.”

In a time where understanding and controlling horrific catastrophes, far beyond the threat of climate change around the world, researchers conclude that the evolution of human consciousness might be our only salvation. For those of you who have seen or read Chayefsky’s Altered States, this is similar but Altered States on speed, reaching far beyond.

This is great storytelling and is striking in its visualizations. It is filled with dialog that will hold your interest as well as believable characters, like disgraced research professor Dr. Beau Walker. For example, in Philadelphia, Walker resigns himself to a weekend of scoring his students’ booklets on basic psychology. But the weekend is not what he imagined. As he naps, the Russian city of Podol’sk is inexplicably vaporized in deadly silence. Unaware of his paranormal bond with the event, Walker “clawed at the sweat-saturated shirt, now tinged pink with oozing blood, rolling his head back and forth on a damp pillow.” What is this puzzling link with event 5,000 miles away?

Walker’s nightmares continue when he is snatched by the government and coerced to join a U.S./Russian multidisciplinary scientific team, searching for the cause of the disasters. Their descent into a Russian crater will have you on the edge of your seat.

This trilogy is for any sci-fi, paranormal, or action-adventure fan. Certainly, worthy of a movie, it is full of surprises and twists and turns. I urge you to step into a story where science, the paranormal and human consciousness meet with unexpected and devastating results. Be prepared for the “after sense” as I call it, the lingering thoughts after you close the book. I recommend that you buy this combined version of the trilogy.

The SHIVA Syndrome Trilogy is not limited only to sci-fi fans. It is for thinking people seeking stories of some complexity that can be intriguing and mentally stimulating. If you love science fiction and are tired of the lack of imagination found in many books and movies today, this psychological thriller should be your next read.

The Mind of Stefan Dürr: The SHIVA Syndrome
Trilogy (Volume 1) by Alan Joshua

A mind research experiment studying human consciousness goes horrifyingly wrong.

Thousands are killed when a Russian suburb is mysteriously destroyed, leaving a mile-deep crater in its place. At the same time, a U.S. space shuttle vaporizes in orbit, and a Canadian mountaintop is ripped away.

One thing lies behind it all: The mind of Stefan Dürr. Existence is dreary hell for Dr. Beau Walker. An embittered loner, he sleepwalks through life until the government virtually kidnaps him, hurling him into an incredibly menacing adventure beyond his wildest imaginings. Coerced into joining a U.S./Russian scientific team, Beau searches for the cause of the disasters.

Beginning with a treacherous, life-threatening exploration of the anomalous crater, where scientific laws don’t seem to apply, he’s thrown into a world of unimaginable advanced biotechnology, biowarfare, genetics, paranormal research, and military intrigue.

The stakes are inconceivably high: Find and control the cause…or face worldwide annihilation.

“A Thrilling Read” New Consciousness Review “Having the right amount of adventure and romance, this crisscrossing genre tale isn’t just a good read, but may also look great on a big screen.”

Portland Book Review: “The book mixes uncommon palettes and manages a masterpiece with it. It is a surprising, suspenseful, and utterly superb read from start to end.”

Self-Publishing Review: “highly recommended, indeed; especially for thriller and sci-fi readers who have become deluged with too much predictability and who seek cutting-edge action, believable protagonists, and action that is solidly intense throughout.”

Midwest Book Review: “Deft dialogue, crisp plotting, and a likable central figure make this multidisciplinary scientific adventure an exuberant and involving read.” Kirkus Review
