About the Author:
I have long wished to see my words in print but like most career women who are also wives and mothers I have had to wait for the right time which I hope is now.
I love the written word and honestly believe that I can use that to convey my thoughts to the reader.
My working life in the health service and education has given me a very intensive insight into human nature, both tragic and comic. My interest in modern history leans my attitudes towards social comment rather than sensationalism.  
I would like to think that these attributes are recognisable in my work and even more so I would like my readers to appreciate those points of view
 
Description:
My tale of Harry Armitage and the highs and lows of his life will be easily recognisable to many people whose parents and grandparents grew up in the era between the two world wars in Northern England.  Perhaps the suspension of disbelief will be tested in that very few people of those times escaped from their life style.
There are still many men living who, as boys grew up with the words “when he starts work” ringing in their ears.
As for their women folk, love and affection never took pride of place against the threat of a lost pay packet.
Harry`s story does not end with Harry`s Prospects- his life and that of his son will still interweave in the sequel which will follow.
If you like a tale well told with characters you can believe in, try this one

Description:

Fennel and Peree are finally together and safe from the Scourge in the protected village of Koolkuna. But on the day of their partnering ceremony the children of the village are stolen away—Fenn’s loyal companion, Kora, among them.

Fenn wants to bring the children home, especially as the villagers seem to blame Peree and her for the tragedy. Only since the death of her own family, she’s terrified a wrong move on her part will lead to the loss of others she loves.

Fenn and Peree join a small search party led by rival Kaiya, the one person who stands a chance of finding the children thanks to her mysterious past. As they travel away from the safe waters of Koolkuna and into the Scourge-infested wilds, Fenn endures Kai’s scorn, her subtle designs on Peree, and the squabbling of the group. But nothing in her life so far has prepared her for the fierce warrior women who will steal others’ children to preserve their own existence—the Fire Sisters.

If Fenn is to survive the threat of the Scourge, rescue the children from the Sisters, and have a hope of making a life with Peree in Koolkuna, she must face her fear of failure and loss and become the leader she’s destined to be.

Nick Stephenson
About the Author:

Nick Stephenson was born and raised in Cambridgeshire, England and will now refer to himself in the first person. My approach to writing is to hit hard, hit fast, and leave as few spelling errors as possible. I write thrillers, suspense novels, and the occasional witty postcard, all of which are designed to get your pulse pounding. Don't let my headshot fool you - I'm actually full colour, on most days.

My books are a mixture of mystery, action, and humour. If you're looking for a good place to start, take a look at my Leopold Blake series of thrillers, available now.

Description:

 

Swift. Silent. Deadly.

Leopold Blake, expert criminology consultant for the FBI, had his weekend all planned out - and it didn't involve dealing with a murdered senator, a high-profile kidnapping, and at least three near-death experiences. Three politicians have been murdered in as many weeks, all expertly dispatched, and only Leopold can get to the bottom of it. Unfortunately, as all hell breaks loose on the streets of New York City, he soon finds himself the next target of a powerful enemy who wants him silenced. Permanently.

Against the backdrop of political corruption and murder, Leopold and his team must fight for their lives to uncover the truth before it's too late. Panic is the first novel in the Leopold Blake series of thrillers.
 
 

Editorial Reviews

Review

 
 
 
"Panic had me on the edge of my seat the whole time with its fast pace and nonstop action. A real page-turner, it leaps from crisis to crisis and never slows down, twisting all the way to its gripping conclusion." - David VanDyke, author of The Eden Plague. 

 
"Buckle up... With precise blows, Nick Stephenson creates fight scenes that had me clenching my jaw with tension. The twists and turns kept me guessing - the pace of the story cracked along toward an exciting finish." - Craig McGray, author of The Somnibus, Madeline, and This Little Piggy.

About the Author:
I was a "struggling" actor in Los Angles for many years, so I know how to depict character, conflict and drama to the max. What I hold highest in writing--even above plot, character, and so on--is telling a great story! A story that makes you cry, or makes you laugh, or just plain makes you say: "That was one good read!"
Description:
This book is three "spooky" tales. The first one is of a burned-out, old, police detective who almost becomes a victim himself of a demon that whispers into its victim's ear of his/her innermost fears. The second story is of a second virgin birth in our time. Jesus bowed down to Satan the first time, and that changed our whole world. The world is ruled by Satan, and God gives man a chance with this new Mary. This story is full of giants, sword fights and man's salvation. The final story is a comedy of a very inept, wannbe private eye who while trying to save a girl's life, becomes involved with the Mafia, vampires and keeps peeing in his pants when scared--which is oftened.

Celeste White
About the Author:

In 1983, thanks to a childhood connection, my husband Richard and I had an incredible employment situation land in our laps. We spent eighteen months living in the bottom floor of one wing of a stunning mansion in Costa Rica, all expenses paid plus a salary. The characters and locales we encountered during this experience were sublime in providing rich fodder for great stories, and Costa Rica itself is such a playful, eccentric, beautiful, and enchanting entity that it deserves all the recognition and attention it receives. 

My first novel, The Last Good Fairy, first published as a limited collector’s edition, won a New England Book Show Award for excellence in book design. That title and a linked collection of stories that take place during an out-of-control wildfire, Altar of Fire, are currently available on Kindle. My children’s book, The Legend of the Flying Hotdog, a fable about the power of kindness, was published by Green Tiger Press (Simon & Schuster), selected as one of the Best Kids’ Books of the year by Parents magazine, and optioned for film. I served as editor-in-chief for the literary magazine, The Hot Air Quarterly, for several years, and I obtained my formal education in creative writing at Wellesley College, where I graduated a Wellesley Scholar. 

Description:

Times were looking bleak after a year of unemployment for author Celeste White and her husband Richard. But a phone call from Richard’s fairy godmother, a wealthy heiress who offered them a dream job in Costa Rica, completely changed their fortune.  The story takes place during 1983 and 1984, during which time they lived next door to Commander Zero, leader of the Contras who were waging a counter-revolutionary war against the Sandanistas in neighboring Nicaragua. Before television had become widespread in the country, before the first high rise hotel was built in Costa Rica, before zip lines—even telephones and gas stations—were installed in the cloud forest of Monteverde, Costa Rica existed as it had for generations of happy, proud residents. Crazy Good Fortune offers a cornucopia of magical, delightful, and often hilarious experiences, populated by characters you will never forget. An intimate, affectionate portrait of a country and a people.

About the Author:

Heaven's Not a Place is a story very close to my heart. I fell in love with the characters as I was writing about them. I lived and breathed them for so long in the writing process that I almost felt that they were my "other children."  Their heartache was my heartache, and their triumph was mine as well. In this tender story of love, I hope that my readers fall in love with the characters of Annie, Jack and Jenna--just as I did.

 

Thank you for reading,

Description:

It's summertime, and Annie Harrison suffers the plight of many single parents—she misses her daughter. While she is struggling to adjust to Jenna’s absence, the tragic death of a dear friend delivers another cruel blow. Then her dreams begin—dreams that are both haunting and intriguing.  And a series of strange incidents occur—each of them making Annie question her beliefs about life, death and the muted line in between.  Can her friend really be reaching out to her with an after-death message?  Or is grief loosening her grip on reality?

Heaven's Not a Place is a different kind of love story. And it also has tantalizing touches of the supernatural.  There are many different kinds of love...but the one most compelling is the love that transcends space and time...

About the Author:

Paul Murphy is a retired educator. The father of three grown children he recently moved to Southport with his wife, Shirley.

He graduated from The Ohio State University in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. He then obtained his Masters in Education from Bowling Green State University in 1970.

Paul possesses more than thirty years experience in public education as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal, culminating with sixteen years as superintendent of schools in several communities.

After he retired, Paul’s first task was to write the Christian fiction novel, The 13th Apostle, published by Evergreen Press. He is also the author of two murder mysteries, Time in the Mirror and Golden Rule Days.

He is a twenty-five year member of Rotary International. Paul has served in various capacities in two Lutheran churches. His love of Jesus prompted his writing The 13th Apostle and its sequel, Angel Assignment: The White House.

Description:

An accidental stumble by a Secret Service agent leaves the country’s leaders exposed for a split second. A shot rings out: an instant later, the Vice President of the United States is dead, and the First Lady is mysteriously wounded. While a shaken President sits beside his injured wife considering resignation, the fiend behind the assassination attempt ramps up a smear campaign calculated to initiate impeachment, and orders his henchmen to scare off—kill, if necessary—a troublesome reporter determined to report only the facts. Still not satisfied, the evil-doer funds Al-Qaeda in a conspiracy to bring both America and its President to their knees. The terrorist attacks are executed with near-perfect precision: as an airplane spews a deadly new strain of anthrax over a crowd of over 100,000 unsuspecting football fans, Al-Qaeda members gun down random individuals at other nationally recognized gridiron venues.

            The enemy’s scheme is working: the President trusts no one except family and Secret Service agents. As rumors and death swirl about the nation’s leader, the pressure to apprehend the perpetrators of these heinous crimes and name a new vice-president becomes almost unbearable. Prayer brings the President little comfort, for his faith has waned over the years, and he no longer believes in his religious heritage. As he flies off to a secret retreat, the President recalls his father’s and grandfather’s tales of “the thirteenth apostle” and the letters Gamaliel supposedly wrote, and rejects them once again as make-believe. But God has a revelation in store for him, and what he learns will be instrumental in his fight against his evil adversary.

            “Paul Murphy is a wonderful story teller. His work in Angel Assignment: The White House grabs you and keeps you until the very end. This is not just a page turner…it’s a page burner. Start it today and you are likely to be up all night and you will be glad for the experience.” Dr. Mark Cress, Founder, Corporate Chaplains of America, Inc.

Finally, a suspense thriller the whole family can enjoy and talk about. A book for all ages, Angel Assignment: The White House, is a modern day novel featuring the president as the good guy, and a bunch of bad guys to fill out the roster. A good story to talk about with family and students. A great, what if. Susan Warren Books 'n Stuff

Description:

In the words of the courageous archaeologist missionary who sacrificed her own well-being to save all Atlanteans from further descent on the evolutionary scale: We are fotunate to have come to Atlantis at a time long after we might have encountered the Rockmen of Megaton Island in their rise as Rockefellas or in their rapid decline as Goodfellas.  Worse we might have encountered the 'World's Most Powerfus Man' in the form of a John-son or a Jack-son, or have been 'smitten' by silver screen goddesses.  Rather, we rapidly gained ascendancy over the inhabitants in their present total degardation.  Wherever we encounter the species, we must not assign our qualities of caring and compassion to such combative, overly talkative animals or we run the risk of permitting their modern mutants, however small in size and number they may be, too much liberty to run about untethered.  (I do protest that the caging of any animal should only be done in extreme circumstances regardless of the custom among You-Mens to keep so many of their own kind in cages.)

And so, this long over-due illustrated study for a comprehensive Anthro-Apology is offered to the perceptive reader based on the translated journals of Sorrel Starling, a deserted, denigrated missionary to the Burning West.  Through Rev. Starling's hands-on analysis of finds out of the cavernous ruins of Megaton Island, sifted and sorted from the mud of an infested swamp where tons of wash were white-washed, exhumed from haunted religious sites in Holy-Wood, the frightening, shocking, wierd evidence mounts to conclusively reveal how ancient Skyscraperans of the First and Second Millennia lived and died.

Have you ever had a dream where you could not move, get away, stay safe, think clearly? Sure you have. Have you experienced any of those things in reality central? Have you ever been drawn towards a sixteen foot monster covered in barnacles and seaweed who is beckoning to you to come closer as it sounds its gong powered by the scend of the sea? Well, I grew up on the Jersey Shore and faced that monster off the mouth of Shark River between Avon-By-The-Sea and Belmar NJ numerous times. It is the feeling of quiet desperation with a musketeer flair that I like to write about from the the foggy mists of New England to the sun bleached shores of Florida. I now have time to write now about these things. Book 2, "SWIRLS AND SHADOWS," A Simon O'Rourke Adventure, is under construction and new challenges will abound for our intrepid characters and, yes, the evildoers as well.

Description:

This is a tale about my fictional hero and probably my alter ego all rolled into one, Simon O'Rourke and his friends and enemies. Simon is experiencing from time to time some rather strange, some would say otherworldly, happenings that really can't be explained away very easily, at least not in a way that would let you sleep better at night. Don't worry, Simon is as baffled as everybody else, except probably Zed. Who is Zed? That is, Indeed, a worthy question. This tale is centered in New England but meanders back to Florida with a side trip to a Cuban dungeon and is very suitable to curl up with on a rainy day or a day when you want a respite from the terrible tube.

Join Simon who is doing his best to figure things out along with you.......

Michael Patrick Clark
About the Author:

Michael Patrick Clark was born on The Fourth of July 1950.



He spent the first few years of his life in an orphanage, before adoption brought a new home and a change of name.



Unhappy at home, Michael joined the armed forces as a boy apprentice. He trained in telecommunications, and subsequently transferred to a specialist mobile-communications unit.



Over the ensuing years he travelled the world; living and working in environments as exotic, hostile, and diverse as the Libyan Desert, Europe, the Australian outback, South-East Asia, and Central and South America.



In the late seventies Michael moved into the high-tech industry. He worked predominantly on international consultancy, for U.S. based communications and computer manufacturers, but after twenty-five years in the industry, made the life-changing decision to move to Spain, with his wife Pamela, and write novels.



Since then he has completed the first and last parts of The Etzel Trilogy, The Folks at Fifty-Eight being the first. He has also written Flying with Cuckoos, an amusing and heart-warming account of his tortuous journey from the orphanage to Special Forces: due for publication later this year.

 

Description:

Flying with Cuckoos tells the true story of a journey of discovery, as a young and naïve Michael Clark leaves a desperately-unhappy adopted home, to join the armed forces, as a ‘boy apprentice’ before transferring into one of the most ill-disciplined and disreputable units in the British armed forces.

 

As the story unfolds, we follow his progress; from one-sided battles with school bullies in suburban England, to even-more one-sided battles with the S.A.S. in some of the world’s most dangerous and exotic places; from the jungles of South-East Asia, and the bullet-scarred shacks of Gaddafi’s ‘new’ Libya, through the tragedy of the war in Vietnam, and the hedonistic excess of swinging-sixties Bangkok and Singapore.

 

Funny, poignant, and at times outrageous, Flying with Cuckoos is a heart-warming story of hope and achievement, and the remarkable journal of a young man’s battle to survive and overcome.

About the Author:

            My husband and I have always been a pair of do-it-yourselfers.  When we got married 56 years ago it was with the understanding that he would bring home the bacon and I would fry it.  With four kids under foot and only one wage, people figured we were destined for financial ruin, but as practicing Christians, we embarked on a faith journey, the aim being to have "neither poverty nor riches." (Proverbs 30:8)  Achieving that goal was not without its humour nor its spiritual lessons, both of which I share in the book.

Description:

The principle character of this book is an ordinary Russian guy named Vadim whose life is never uneventful, indeed Vadim can always be counted on to share a funny story with his friends; usually stories in which he was at the epicentre. Live through one summer of Russian life with Vadim and his attractive but at times critical wife Julia and come to understand how it is fun to be Russian. Drink vodka during a consultation at the clinic, experience a fishing weekend with friends, spend a relaxing summer week at the country Dacha and see how a seaside vacation to Egypt can be unusually eventful in the right company. Along the way you may find the answers to all those niggling little questions you never knew you wanted to ask. Why do Russians tie fishing boats to their feet while camping? How do you catch a bottle of vodka while fishing off your balcony? Why is it unwise to relieve yourself out the door of a Russian train at night? What German phrase do all Russian men know and when would they use them? Find out which is stronger; an Al Qaeda head or a Japanese television? And, just why is it essential that your wife always wears white knickers while travelling? While finding out, you will agree with the author of this book, that it is fun to be Russian and vodka is naked vitamin and pure energy! Enjoy reading and Na Zdorovie!

About the Author:

Boo Walker spent his College of Charleston years and a few after in Nashville as a banjoist and songwriter for the avant-garde punchgrass band, The Biscuit Boys. Some hand problems knocked him out of the game, and he stumbled into a position with a short term equity trading firm based out of Charleston, SC. To feed his ravenous muse, he began writing his first novel, Lowcountry Punch. Around that time, what started as a passion in wine became a neurosis.



After six years of the Wall Street thing, Boo decided it was time to end his sedentary, computer-driven lifestyle. He grew out a handlebar mustache and moved clear across the country into a double-wide trailer situated on 5 acres of Malbec vines just down the road from Hedges Family Estate on Red Mountain in Washington State. The Hedges family took him in and taught him the art of farming and the old world philosophies of wine. He now travels the world peddling the family’s juice, and chances are you can find him in an airport somewhere working on his next novel.

In Charleston, South Carolina, Dewey Moses is a vegetable farmer, a bluegrass musician, a recovering alcoholic, and an aging hipster. In fact, he was wearing fedoras, rolled-up jeans, and Converse All-Stars before Portland and Brooklyn were born. Since getting booted out of his house and his band, he’s trying to get back on top. Now, he’s a year sober, and selling vegetables at the farmer’s market, but what he knows better than how to grow heirloom tomatoes is how to get down to the bottom of things. What started out as a favor for a friend is proving to be his most lucrative talent: investigative work.

But when Faye Callahan, the wife of one of the most powerful land developers in the South, comes to see him, she puts his talents to the test. Her daughter, Gina, jumped off the Cooper River Bridge a few days before. She left a suicide note in her abandoned car. There were witnesses. But Faye doesn’t believe it. Gina was as happy as she’d ever been, having just fallen in love. Why would her sweet baby take her own life? Agreeing to help, Dewey finds out quickly that sometimes it’s best to leave things alone.

Off You Go is a smart and quick read, and Dewey Moses is irresistible.

Description:

In 1904 a group of young miners from the German mining town of Gelsenkirchen got together to play football.  They had very little money, no kit to wear, no ball to play with.  They didn’t even have a pitch to play on. This book tells the story of how the club these young men formed grew to become Schalke 04, one of the biggest, wealthiest and best-known football clubs in the world.

It describes the lives of famous players, takes a look at Schalke’s passionate fans, and explains why the club is so important to its town and region.

There is also plenty of practical information for anyone thinking of coming to see a game or wanting to follow Schalke from afar.

About the Author:

After graduating high school in beautiful and naïve Carson City, Nevada the author spent 4 years in the US Navy learning Chinese Mandarin and bureaucracy. He spent his GI Bill earning a Manufacturing Engineering Degree from Oregon State University – home of the Beavers. Upon graduation he was lucky enough to get sucked into the vortex of a major truck manufacturer where he spent the next 25 years doing everything from licking boots to booting up IT systems. His 3 year honeymoon in China, from bumfuck to Beijing, along with many, many meetings and assignations across the country and all over Europe made it clear that people are strange and wonderful no matter where you find them. Tim has been capturing his impressions for a long time. This book is the first exposure for people outside his immediate loop. He lives in Seattle with his lovely wife Dulcie and the semi-domesticated hummingbirds that come to the back deck for nectar. The cats and dogs doing their business in his yard are, presumably, some sort of cherry on top.

This is a book for pet lovers and pet haters and other people that live in America today. Everyone wins – especially the helpless animals that are forever being processed through the Pet Retailing and Industrial Complex (Big Pet). This book will help change minds about what needs to be done to reduce animal suffering and how people can start on that today. But instead of the guilt-trippy misery associated with a lot of facts and sad pictures, this book makes the case with hilarious tales, outrageous suppositions and totally made up charts and graphs. Perhaps the most useful information within is the many helpful tips on how to get laid! Improve your batting average in just 10 minutes! Start reading immediately!

Some people love pets. Some people tolerate pets. Some people actually, really hate pets. Some actual people and some corporate persons sell pets. Individually each person goes about their business related to pets and thinks they are doing normal things in their lives. The truth is that the entire pet ecosystem is out of whack. Seriously out of whack. Anyone willingly participating in a system responsible for the death of a cat or dog in America every 8 seconds is fantastically deluded or sadistically deranged. Nevertheless, here we are with “the people” up to their lips in vet bills and cat taco outfits and sh*t management solutions. Everywhere you go there are pets. Everybody is either convinced or getting convinced that pets are a good fit with whatever they are doing at the moment. Be it working, playing, eating, teaching, learning, shopping,… it doesn’t matter they think a pet should be there. I propose a climb-down from pet ubiquity. A fresh look at and a changing of the national mind about pets. Can’t we get along with a hell of a lot less pet choice? Can’t we agree to try to get the death rate up to 10 seconds? Go hog wild and shoot for 20?
