Michael Patrick Clark
About the Author:

 

Author of The Folks at Fifty-Eight, 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 In July 2012.

 

Description:

The Folks at Fifty-Eight is the first part in The Etzel Trilogy, a saga of espionage and conspiracy that views the Cold War from three viewpoints, three periods, and three locations. 1946 Washington D.C., 1952 Moscow, and 1957 London.

The Folks at Fifty-Eight kicks off the trilogy with the view from a 1946 Washington D.C. It is a Faustian tale of espionage and conspiracy that uses the disarray of Western Intelligence, the theft of atomic secrets from Los Alamos, and the adoption of dormant German spy networks, by members of the New York based Council on Foreign Relations, as factual backcloth.

The fictitious thread is provided by Gerald Hammond, a washed-up former OSS agent, and his preoccupation with a stunning young German woman. He is the exception to the rule; an incorruptible spy, whose lofty principles have brought him nothing but mediocrity and obscurity. She is the murderous and provocative daughter of a former spymaster; a femme fatale to compromise the principled man.

About the Author:

David Joseph is a veteran Air Force Flyer. While in the Air Force, he flew on the HH-53, HH-3, HC-130, C-141, and KC-10 aircraft, and traveled to every continent in the world. His travels and experiences provide unlimited material for writing.
He is the author of Korea x 2 and Silent Six, a military thriller Trilogy, set on the Korean peninsula, The Bully & Other Stories, and the two best seller novelettes, The Great Hijacking and Putin’s Shoot-down!  Both novelettes based on the Malaysian MH370/MH17 Flights. He is currently writing Korea Unified, the third book in the military Trilogy, and Inspirational/Thriller short stories. "I have twenty short stories and three novels in my head!"

Description:

In this groundbreaking historical short story, David Joseph brings to light one of the most shameful incidents in American history—“The Bellingham Riots” that, as the papers read, “wiped the Punjabi off the map.” The story reveals the plight of Sikh and Japanese in the U.S. who fought discrimination and established a proud legacy in the history of a country that is truly a “melting pot.” The story opens up with a fifteen-year-old boy and a young Japanese couple that flee Bellingham to escape the violence. “Punjabi” is a signature David Joseph story that begins with tragedy and ends with the reader in tears of joy. Using notes from a conversation with an elderly Punjabi man, David Joseph met in a café in West Virginia, and notes from interviewing elderly Japanese, David Joseph considers it an obligation to the Sikh and Japanese to write this story.

Clarissa Simmens
About the Author:

Retired as an Assistant Director of Financial Aid at a Florida community college, I have become a self-published author (what fun!). Growing herbs and experimenting by concocting healing salves and infusions is part of my spiritual life. As a 75% Romani, I learned to create my path, The Drom Ek Romani, from my grandmother, a drabarni, or herbalist, while growing up in Philadelphia. My books include The Way of One Gypsy, The Gypsy's Book, Drab Lil: A Gypsy's Medicine Book and Madame Sosostris Explains (a poetry patchwork). Married and living in Florida, my two sons and granddaughter live at least 995 miles north but cell phones and eMail bridge the distance daily.

Description:

THE TITLE: At the age of seventeen I discovered T.S. Eliot's poem “The Wasteland.” The only part of the poem I could relate to was about “Madame Sosostris, famous clairvoyante.” Four of the tarot cards are invented by Eliot (Drowned Phoenician Sailor, Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks and the Lady of Situations). Having invented my own Drom Ek Romani cards as part of my heritage, I could appreciate his imaginary cards with their mystical names. My first poem explains each tarot card and the second one details the Drom Romani although I make no claim to be a “famous clairvoyante.” The other poems are a patchwork of subjects including tributes to Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, and other writers of music and poetry.

THE POEMS: With the exception of several free verse poems, the others are a mixture of Shakespearean Sonnets, Terza Rima, Rima Royale, and, well, more sonnets. The poetry forms are very confining yet I attempted to make them all-encompassing in their little world. When writing the 22 sonnets for the Drom Romani I began speaking in rhyming iambic pentameter in my dreams. Does that make me a poet? I hope so. Failing that, a sonnet a day keeps senility away. I am hoping that whatever your age, you find enjoyment in my poetry.

Barbara G Louise
About the Author:

The author was born a “middle class,” over-privileged WASP in 1943. and “came out” into gay life in 1965.  After an internship at a major hospital in Cleveland, she graduated from Kent State University in May of 1970 with a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology, and also a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a general minor.  She became a Jew-by-Choice in 1973.  She is a proud retired member of 1199SEIU, the National Healthcare Workers Union, and participated in the great 1984 Hospital Strike in NYC.  She is also a Wobblie.

Barbara G Louise is an Empath, her own feelings always strongly affected by the presence of other beings (usually human, although she can feel other mammals too, like horses, cats dogs, and dolphins). While writing The Rabble and the Rich, she finally had to realize she had to do the creative part physically alone, in order to discover, without the emotional input of anyone else’s worldview, exactly what she personally had to say about capitalism, the necessity for revolution, Marxism, government, and anarkhism.  She knows her communist friends will disagree with her, and most other anarkhists also.  Which is why she had to find her own ideas and opinions.

Barbara conceives of her potential audience as “middle class” or formerly “middle class” mostly-white people who are disgusted by our current economic system and disenchanted with the failed idea of the “American dream,” whereby we were all supposed to work hard and grow into a comfortable life free of hunger, economic worry, and random violence (regardless of skin colour), where we could raise our children in safety.  She cannot pretend to be anything other than what she is: a white, anti-Racist, formerly “middle class” person who can speak most genuinely to other “middle Class” people.

Since she was born in 1943, she is not young.  For most of her life, the twenty-first century was the far future. ((She can even remember when 1976 was the far future.))  She did not grow up with the InterNet. 

So she was at first reluctant to publish electronically.  To her, and to most people her age, a book is bound hardcopy she can decoratively store on a bookshelf, hold in her hands, and manually turn the pages with more than a casual flick of her fingers. 

But as a long time reader of science fiction, Barbara must admit, and rejoice, that the future is here now.  To the people of the twenty-first century, the InterNet is Reality.  She even has a connection in her house.  Although she has plenty of hardcopies on her bookshelves, her most useful dictionary is online, so she can most quickly consult it while she is writing with her computer on her lap. 

Having finished the Work which serves as the culmination of her lifetime of reading, thinking about politics and philosophy — and engaging in whatever progressive activism she was not too cowardly to commit — she began the soul-numbing process of trying to break into print without any interest in, or talent for, writing short stories to introduce herself to readers in her genre.  Considering the difficulty an unknown new writer has in finding a publisher these days, especially for a book with a bluntly anti-capitalist theme, Barbara despaired of getting her novel published anytime before she died.

Then one night after Erev Rosh Hashannah services at her synagogue, someone suggested that the visiting Cantor — Bonnie J. Gordon, whose delightful retelling of the Exodus story — Escape from Goshen — for children, can be found on Amazon for Kindle (and in paperback) — could tell her how to publish online, so Barbara asked her how, and she did. 

There is a song from the sixties or seventies, from the time when Barbara was “officially” involved with Gay Liberation:

It isn’t nice to block the doorway,

It isn’t nice to go to jail.

There are nicer ways to do it

But the nice ways always fail.

Of course, escape from the life-smothering excesses of capitalism is only necessary in the alternate universe of The Rabble and the Rich.  In our universe, our relatively tiny corner of the Multiverse, capitalism is the greatest economic system the human species has ever produced.  You better believe it.  Anyone can get rich!  

Only losers, like Barbara G Louise, who has no interest in, and no talent for, the thieving manipulations of high finance, cannot get rich and join the storied 1% who own our supposedly democratic government and manipulate it to further their own selfish financial interests, no matter how the losers suffer while their totally-unimportant qualities of life plummet as the rich get richer.

So, since Barbara is too old to survive arrest and torture by armed and armored agents of the federal or state governments, the reader will please remember that no revolution (especially by the Left) is necessary in our universe, absolutely none.  Barbara is definitely not advocating a Leftist revolution.

Capitalism is the end of history.  Revolution is unneeded, and impossible.  You better believe it.

Cleaveland and the universe of The Rabble and the Rich can be found somewhere in the infinite reaches of the Multiverse, along with: Utopia;  Erewhon;  Oz;  Lilliput;  Precipice, CA;  Shora;  Earthsea;  Hain;  Gethen;  Anarres;  (The Word for World is) Forest;  Aka;  Middle Earth;  the Shire;  BarsoomMalacandra;  Salvay;  Anthea;  Wonderland;  Underland;  the Island of Dr. Moreau;  Kendra-on-the-Delta;  Arun;  Barrayar;  Quaddiespace;  Lucifer (the planet);  Zomia;  Kkhadee;  Chaos;  Dyson Prime;  Nueva Cuba;  Darkover;  the Stand on Zanzibar;  (the disk of) Gaia (in orbit of Saturn)Beninia;  Mouth-of-Mattapoisett, MA;  A Paradise Built in Hell;  Luna Free State;  the Golden Globe;  Babylon 5;  and the Star Trek Galaxy.

Description:

This book is now vailable on Amazon.com for $2.99, the lowest price Kindle will allow.

DOCUMENTS of the PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF NORTH AMERICA is a collection of non-narrative writing which supplements the three books of the controversial RABBLE AND THE RICH Trilogy, the tale of an alternative universe — a universe nothing like our own, of course — where the terrible division between the rich capitalists and the Working Class has reached its climax.

Truth in Advertising compels the author to reveal that each section of DOCUMRNTS has been published before, in the Xtra areas at the back of the books of the Trilogy, THE RABBLE AND THE RICH, although there have been extensive additions to A COLLECTION OF REBELS since the Trilogy was first published.

The DOCUMENTS excerpted from the controversial speculative-fiction trilogy-novel, The RABBLE AND THE RICH, are, first of all, THE CONSTITUTION OF THE PEOPLE’S SOLIDARITY OF NORTH AMERICA, wherein the customs and ideology of a future free, anarkhist society are enumerated and established.

Also included is an extensive BIBLIOGRAPHY OF SPECULATIVE FICTION AND LEFT-LEANING BOOKS which inspired and educated the author of The RABBLE AND THE RICH, as well as A COLLECTION OF REBELS, including Val Plumwood, Emma Goldman, Assata Shakur, Frederick Douglass, Big Bill Haywood, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Angela Davis, James Tiptree Jr, Ursula K. LeGuin, Urvashi Vaid, Emiliano Zapata, and Cindy Sheehan, as well as further activists, anarchists, socialists, communists, and others in our universe who have contributed to the evolutionary and cultural trend towards a civilization free from capitalism and its ills.

Terry Nelson
About the Author:

I have always been intrigued by Charlie Faust who is buried on the grounds of Western State Hospital, a psychiatric facility in Washington. A fortune teller in Kansas told Charlie he would pitch the New York Giants to the pennant. He walked onto the field before a game in St. Louis during the season, introduced himself to Giants manager, John McGraw, and the most amazing things happened. When he was in uniform, sitting on the bench, or warming up, thinking he would pitch, the Giants rarely lost. Not only did he become their good luck charm, he ended up a star on vaudeville within weeks of arriving in New York. The team pulled some outrageous jokes on Charlie, but they loved him. And they won the pennant. To this day, it is unknown if Charlie was insane or slow in the head . His story is told through the eyes of rookie Chet Koski, who has his own crazy story to tell.

Description:

Chester Koski is a 22 year old rookie for the 1911 New York Giants, floundering both on the field where he is unable to figure out big league pitching, and in life where he is unable to determine the nature of luck, of God, or his girlfriend, chorus girl, Eveleen Sullivan. Though Chester can’t get a hit on the field and is not making a hit with Eveleen off the field, he is determined to figure out life and win back Eveleen before the season ends. That and making sure Charley Faust, a man either insane, slow-witted, or something else entirely, gets his apple pie. Based on a true story, “Loonies in the Dugout” mixes fictional characters with Bat Masterson, Damon Runyon, George M. Cohan, Charlie Faust, Christy Mathewson, John McGraw, and members of the New York Giants in a satirical look at celebrity and fame.

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.

    "Two Old Goats and One Good Shepherd" is a collection of humorous anecdotes with Christian applications.  They are the personal experiences of the author and her husband as they were involved in building their house, gardening, cooking, camping and many of the other endeavors required to achieve simple living but abundant life.

Description:

This book will help you stop replaying unconscious patterns from your family-of-origin in your adult relationships and with your children. Most people don't understand how and why this happens, so they feel powerless to change things. This practical how-to book contains many stories about how Barry changed his life by identifying and breaking his dysfunctional family patterns. It will  will help you not only break free of your family patterns, but also change your life.

How to Identify Your Family Patterns,  the first in a two-part series, presents 12 common relational patterns that unconsciously replay in all families and are the primary cause of human suffering. These dysfunctional, addictive family patterns often lay dormant until adulthood, when they begin to interfere with intimacy in relationships.

This book contains many exercises, inventories and self-awareness activities to help you break free of the intergenerational legacy of attitudes and behaviors family patterns carry with them.The author believes that these unconscious patterns are factors in emotional, sexual and physical child abuse and neglect; all crimes of violence; all addictions, including eating disorders, alcoholism, and drug abuse; teenage suicides; all unhappy adult relationships; and perhaps all illnesses.

This book will help if you:

  1. Feel your partner treats you like you were treated growing up.
  2. Want your partner to change so you can feel better.
  3. Feel unappreciated and unseen by your partner.
  4. Walk on eggshells so your partner won’t criticize you.
  5. Find it difficult to have fun and be spontaneous.
  6. Have conflicts that remind you of those you experienced growing up.
  7. See parts of your parent’s relationship in your current relationships.
  8. Not enjoy sex the way you would like to.
  9. Feel criticized by your partner the way you were criticized by your parents.
  10.  Experience difficulty in sustaining intimacy in your relationships.
  11.  Get afraid of being too successful.
  12.  Fear making mistakes when you are faced with decisions.

Reading this book will shift your thinking about yourself and the struggles you have in your life in ways that you can’t even imagine. It will help you see things in ways that make you feel like you've just walked out of a life-long fog.

Jesse A. Mayfield
About the Author:

Hi, my name is Jesse A. Mayfield and I'm an actor, singer, writer and teacher. I've appeared on Broadway, on the Lincoln Center stage and at the Kennedy Center and in many concert venues around the world. As the former Artistic Director of the famed "Paul Robeson Theater" in New York, I produced and starred in many notable productions, among them, "A Raisin in the Sun," "Ceremonies in Dark Old Men" and "Of Mice and Men." I've spent much of the last decade touring in various stage productions. Always a New Yorker at heart, I presently reside in Los Angeles where I teach acting. I recently launched Greedy Reedy Productions to develop projects for television and film and my company, Lamarr Talent & Literary Management represents and guides the careers of young, aspiring entertainment professionals. 

My touching memoir titled "Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye...a coming of age story," chronicles my early years growing up in Brooklyn, New York during the Civil Rights era. It tells of me being one of the first African-Americans bused to a White school when New York City started busing for school integration. My years in predominately White, Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn were both character building and life changing and laid the foundation for my becoming the man I am today. This story is told through the eyes of a precocious and intelligent little boy and it's told with humor and love.

It is my sincerest hope that while reading this book you will get a strong sense of the love I had for my family, my community and the new world of friendships that embraced me. Being "away from my mother's watchful eye" offered me a new-found freedom but it also demanded that I grow up quickly, keep my wits about me and utilize everything I'd ever learned. This is a "nostalgic" and "feel good" story that will take you on a journey through a crazy time in our nation's history and make you laugh, cry, think and then laugh some more.

Enjoy!

Description:

"Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye...a coming of age story" is a memoir that tells about the author, Jesse A. Mayfield, growing up in Brooklyn, New York during the turbulent, dangerous and racially charged 1960s. When the New York City Board of Education implemented busing to further integrate New York public schools, Jesse was one of the first African-Americans bused from the inner-city to a White school in lily-White Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn in the Fall of 1965. Since all young Blacks were expected to be militant and "down with the revolution," Jesse was viewed as being a "traitor," "Uncle Tom" and "house nigger" for going to school with "Whitey." Surprisingly, he found peace, friendship and acceptance in the most unlikely of places; the White community he'd been warned to view with fear and distrust.

This entertaining, uplifting and inspiring story will take you on a magical and nostalgic journey to an exciting time gone by and you'll relive history as you revisit President Kennedy's election and assassination, the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, President Lyndon B. Johnson, the Vietnam War and the healing effects of the Beatles' music on a post-assassination America.

Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye is a not the usual unfortunate and sad story about busing that we've all heard but instead, it's an inspiring story of one boys journey as he navigates between two distinct worlds forging friendships, excelling and forming a unique perception of the world. As one reviewer so aptly put it, "Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye is the epitome of all coming of age stories."

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.

Two Malaysian airliners meet disaster within a few months.  At the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Vladimir Putin contemplates his next move after the United States fails to deliver $1,000,000,000 that Putin deems belongs to him.  A few days later, an airliner mysteriously disappears—believed to be at the bottom of the sea.  Four months later, with the situation deteriorating in Ukraine, economic sanctions placed on Russia, and the fear of falling oil prices, Putin orders the shoot-down of MH17 flight over Ukraine.  David Joseph jolts readers by linking MH370 and MH17—the real-life parallels are shocking!

About the Author:
Description:

All they had against them was a deadly and normally incurable communicable disease, one career full of deep secrets, another career struggling to get known and accepted, an ancient culture versus a modern culture, and half a world of distance; yet they could not just forget each other.  It would take time. 

A romance from the male perspective written with humor and respect for the complexity of mature adult romantic relationships.

Peter Freeman
About the Author:

Though I was born and raised on the island of Britain, and though my parents and all my ancestors as far back as I am aware, were born and raised on the island that invented the English language, English is my second language. It gives me the perspective of being both on the inside and on the outside of the world's most spoken language. In my native tongue,

These days I live in California, a Welshman married to an Apache, It's strange how the world turns and how, on this road of life we never know what lies around the next curve. Perhaps if we come to grips with the way we speak we may understand life a little better.

Or perhaps not.

Description:

The English language has an unusual style of expression. To insult or offend someone, sexual words are used. More than that, words with the same meaning are perfectly acceptable. Why is it acceptable to say "Posterior" but not "Ass"? This book explores the reasons and the history of English swearing and related obscenities.

Other chapters deal with such slips of the tongue as Spoonerisms; where you "Dish the washes" and Malapropisms; "He is a Civil Serpent"

With all the ways we have of misunderstanding each other, reading this short book may make you wonder how we manage to communicate. Perhaps we don't.
