Steve R. Lawrence
About the Author:
My name is Steve R. Lawrence. I'm a dynamic writer with an incredible imagination. I write in a style that most people can relate to visually and psychologically and emotionally. I have a knack for touching upon universal themes. My story is unique because it is a love story after the chance for love has already gone. It is also about finding your fate after it's too late to fully live it out. Richard, the protagonist, feels he's been cheated from living out his potential. And don't we all feel that way at one time or another? Richard also feels like an outsider, not belonging to any kind of world, despite having a purpose in two worlds, the spirit world and the material world. There's also an intriguing look at lost love. Everybody has that one person who they feel is their lost love. And people are usually baffled as to why a certain person ended up a lost love, but in this story the characters see what occurred to have this happen to them. They get to see how they planned their fate to meet on earth, only to see it fall apart only moments before fateful meeting. This story is interesting because it takes a fascinating look at the darker side of love, with the longing for a person who is unattainable, an illusion of some sort. Romance within the unromantic. It's also unique in that there is no right or wrong in this story, the reader is allowed to draw their own conclusions about fate, life, and death. Another great element of this story is how the most unexpected people can impact a person's life, for good or bad, and how there are powerful forces affecting the lives of everybody. Another terrific angle of this story is how we can think we know a person, yet we come to realize that we don't know them at all, and they have a dark secret that can send shock waves through our life in the most personal way. One more thing, after you've read this book, you'll look at life with a whole different perspective, aware of things that were previously hidden, or perhaps, confirming what you already know, giving you the power to move through life more confidently.

Description:
Imagine a typical day in your life, whether it's at school or work, but you slowly realize that it's all an illusion, a memory playing over and over in your mind in an endless loop, until you discover you're actually dead in the afterlife. That's what Richard Goodley experiences at the beginning of this book. Yet his death remains a haunting mystery. He is then sent back to earth to guide the life a beautiful young woman, and that's when he makes the electrifying discovery that the fate he left behind is only beginning, and that's when the pieces of his death begin to come together in a staggering revelation.

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.

Description:

In "Reincarnation: Past Lives and the Akaashic Record" Lois J. Wetzel,MFA, has written the long-awaited sequel to her first book, "Akashic Records: Case Studies of Past Lives." Yet "Reincarnation" takes the reader on a trip to the past like none other. Once again, riveting stories of the past lives of scores of different people are narrated. These lifetimes go back hundreds of thousands of years on Earth, allowing the reader glimpses of long-lost civilizations not contained in our historical record. In this book, unlike the first, the author challenges our ancient history as wrong, giving ample examples of proof we have lived on this swirling ball of minerals for hundreds of thousands of years! She talks about her past life readings for clients, but she also shares some of the spontaneous past life memories which others, including famous people, have had. 


The past lives of Lois' clients are shared so that the reader may learn and grow from the experiences of her clients. Naturally, clients' names and identifying information have been changed to protect their privacy. Surprisingly, some readers have said they actually felt some of their own past life issues were resolved as they read about the prior lifetimes of others. 

Why learn about our past lives? Isn’t this lifetime enough to handle? Because the whole story of who we are has to do with everything we have experienced. We know that who we are has a lot to do with our childhoods. Why would it not have to do with who we were in our prior lifetimes? Knowing about our past lives allows us to know more fully who we actually are at the level of the Immortal Soul. Why are we terrified of, instantly despise, or immediately adore someone we’ve just met? Why would we avoid visiting a certain location, even though there is no reason? Why do cruise ships or horses terrify us? Why are we so powerfully drawn to bow-hunting, cake decorating, scuba diving, fashion design or sailing having never experimented with it before? Why do some things come so easily people swear we have done it before? Why were we born with these predispositions? Are the answers in past lives? 

The author also includes correspondence between the clients and herself before and after the reading was done, so that we can see the client's experience of the reading, and the reaction to the reading and the information which came out of it. 

"Reincarnation" also discusses some truly strange concepts, like parallel and overlapping lifetimes, and why it may be possible to be alive in two bodies in different locations on a timeline that overlaps. Or how can we die and come back into the same body, remembering the out-of-body event with conscious awareness of ourselves while not in our bodies? 

All these topics and more lie between the pages of this fascinating and compelling book.

What kind of mother abandons her children? Donna George couldn't imagine, until heroin and opiates became more important to her than life itself.

No other program had worked ... but maybe, just maybe, tough-love counselors and a handful of colorful characters could help her find the way through the madness and back to her daughters and her better self. An intimate, gritty memoir about addiction and recovery.

Steven London
About the Author:

I spent the better part of my life listening to the stories of the last three generations.  It was more than just luck that I had the opportunity to hear first hand of these tales. Older people talk about their lives not so much that the young ear will understand.  It gives them a chance to relive their lives and remember how they reached a particular point in their lives.

From this vantage point, I write.  I memorized their stories, not in just the words spoken, but of the meaning behind the words.  I don't know if the relatives who poured out their lives to a young child would be happy or angry in that I have taken their stories to heart.  Maybe they would be surprised that someone actual listened and understood them.

As in this novel, TRUST, or the characters in upcoming books, ask and have answered is an intrinsic question.  A question that we as humans ask ourselves near the end of our days, "Was i loved? Was I truly loved for myself?"  How do you answer that question for yourself today?

Description:

 

This novel tells a tale of New York City about one of the last centuries noteable characters.

Mrs. Helen London: it was a title she never rightfully earned.  She lived a charmed and equally tragic life.  As an irrefutable New York beauty of her generation, she was desired by many but only a few held. Mrs. Helen London was a woman from a questionable background who after a sensational trial became a woman of wealth at the height of the Great Depression.

The novel chronicles her as lies, loves and death follow her.  It is an amazing tale of an amazing woman.  Although the time period is the early twentieth century, the themes resonate as current as today.  Only technology and fashion change, people remain the same.  Equally intriguing is the fact that Helen London was my great aunt.

About the Author:
David Welch hails from the capital district of upstate New York. A long time fan of action-adventure tales in all genres, he has been writing continuously since he was a teenager. His book CHAOS QUARTER is now available on Kindle.
Description:
In the future mankind has spread itself across the stars…and promptly divided itself into dozens of competing nations. Some things never change. The worst of it all can be found in the Chaos Quarter, a hive of failed states, petty tyrants, pirates, and religious extremists. Into this mess comes Rex Vahl. Formerly a pilot for the democratic Free Terran Commonwealth, Rex was scape-goated for the death of a power commander’s son. As a result he is basically given a suicide mission: cross the Chaos Quarter and investigate the mysterious space beyond. Problem is that nobody who has entered that space has ever returned. Rumors abound of a reclusive super-power, so addicted to genetic engineering that they can no longer really be considered human. When Rex discovers that all the rumors are true he finds himself being chased cross the galaxy by two overpowering warships. What does he have on his side? His co-pilot is a former prostitute with tiger-striped skin. His gunner is a traitorous ex-nobleman wanted by his former countrymen. His engineer is a laid-back cyborg exiled for asking one too many questions about God. Add in a woman genetically engineered to have no free will and you get his motley crew. Armed with only a souped-up freighter, Rex and his band of out-casts must out-fight, out-fox, and out-run their enemies if they are to make it back to the Commonwealth, and reveal the terrible truth of what lies beyond the CHAOS QUARTER…

About the Author:

I have always loved the written word, from when I was a young lad reading "Mr. Popper's Penguins" to a slightly older lad who read Raymond Chandler and John Cheever to the middle-aged dude I am now, reading history by the likes of Doris Kearns Goodwin. Christmas has also always been a big deal. For as long as I can remember, back in time to my youth in Chicago, this was always a special time of the year for my family and me. Another things is, everyone in my family, including and especially, my wife, has, to one degree or another, a slightly off way of looking at the world. Therefore, writing humorous stories about Santa seemed like a natural thing to do.

Description:

"Twisted Tinsel" is a collection of four short stories, all about the goings on of Santa Claus, his reindeer, and the elves who work at the North Pole. It shows all of these things in a light different from what you may be used to. This Santa enjoys adult beverages, as do some of his reindeer, and don't get me started on the elves. They work hard so they're entitled to the occasional tipple as well. Santa gets into all sorts of adventures: He travels through time with Blitzen and meets Abraham Lincoln; he tries to get out of the business but just gets sucked back in, just in time to defeat an evil efficiency expert and deliver the toys on Christmas Eve; he solves the "mystery" of a "missing" reindeer; he gets stressed but finds peace through meditation and the wisdom of a ghost-like reindeer. You may not be able to read these tales to your young children, but there's nothing here that would embarrass your grandma to read. They are simply Christmas stories told from a slightly skewed perspective.

Their only child was dead.  They’d squandered their time with their precious daughter and now she was gone.  Absorbed in their own lives, blinded by selfishness they didn’t see their daughter grow up alone. 

Neglected by her family, Sarah found solace in her cherished garden. It was there, sheltered within her tidy nursery and comforted by the simple elegance of her garden, that she longed for love, nurtured her dreams and pursued her passion for knowledge.   

Working alone among the roses, Sarah made a remarkable scientific breakthrough.  Her discovery was worth millions for agricultural and pharmaceutical concerns.   Despite the commercial potential the goal of her work was never money.  Sarah's goals were much more profound and deeply personal.  Her discovery could heal the rift between her parents, save their marriage and even their lives.  

Sarah’s love, her dreams and her secrets did not die with her but unravelling the mystery of her daughters death would lead her parents on a journey across the ocean and deep into their own hearts.  The gift Sarah left for them could save them both if the could find it in time.

Could her parents find the strength, and the courage to face the truth before it was too late?  The answers could only be found in the Gardens of the Heart.

About the Author:

     In the first grade, learning The Pledge of Allegience, I asked: "What's a Republic?" In hindsight my Teacher took me to a map and explained a confederation of states, not a republic.. However, the real answer to my question took twenty six years to answer. Six of those twenty six years were spent going from library to library; huddled over age old books, amidst dusty Winter nights, and humid New England days. As I was able to read at an Adult level in the First Grade; I remember; with such joy;finding "A Biography of Deborah Sampson." The joy was due to that was the first Adult book I ever read. She among many others had impersonated a male so she could fight in the Revoltuion. This was an ancient European tradition, (without the masquerade).

      Years passed, as I traversed America, France, and India; and somewhat settled down; got married and had a beautiful Daughter. For my Daughter's sake, I began college a bit late at twenty eight years of age. So with a two month old infant I arrived at Mount Ida College, enrolled, and soon began realizing; I had brought a Classcial education with me. By the time I graduated with honors, (Who's Who and an Award in Scholarship), I was headed to Harvard. I believed this to be my last summer working in mental health. Unfortunately, in protecting a female patient from harm; I was struck down; which resulted in a spinal injury that lasted many years. I then arrived at law school; earning the nickname, "The Prosecutor," (one I was never comfortable with, but Student Loans as they are, were too large an obstacle to overcome and continue.

      However I did go on to earn my Ph.D. in Early American and European history. I went on to teach Liberal Studies and was praised for my Socratic Method. Although my favorite course to teach was Western Civilization, I taught many others: Western Civilization, Philosophy, Ethics, Humanities, American History, Political Science, Introduction to Anthropology, Introduction to Sociology, Native American Studies, and  Twentieth Century History. I also developed abridged critical thinking and mapping as an introduction to all classes. This provided tangible results for measuring learning. Critical thinking essays were requisites for exams, rather than true or false, questions, and the like.

     When I wasn't teaching I remained active working in Human Services, as a Consultant for private families. Presently I reside in New England and am retired.

     What is virtue, as opposed to a virtue? Corruption for example, is a word often used, in accusing someone of not being true; but true to what? One needs to grasp principle as a basic truth; on which all other truths rest, before corruption can be applied. Once the truth is identified, it can be understood that the accused, has fallen away from and is not being true to principle Can it be a disagreement? Certainly it can. However, just because one believes something to be true, doesn't necessarily make it knowledge, it makes it true belief. Subsequently, corruption rolls off the tongue, as easy as virtue or corruption.

     In western civilization; from Athens to America, even as today worldwide, is another word used; Republic. It has been used so often, to identify so many Countries, that Republic has and is, misconstrued with Democracy. Which is unfortunate.

     Polity for example, is how societies organize into governing bodies. America's polity, is a bicameral system, having two legislative houses, voting on the passing of laws. This is neither a Democracy as America's founders understood it; and neither is it a Republic. For Republic is not a polity; but it is and has always been the remedy for political evils, from Athens to America. Thus, a Republic is a why, rather than a what. For example: America's Founder's without question, regarded America; especially after the Constitutional  Convention of 1788, that America was to be a Representative Republic. So what happened?

     Through the ages of western civilization, from Athens to America, as all republics arose to confront political evils; regardless of their new found polity; there has been a promise. A promise of virtue and the threat of corruption.

     America's Founders knew this well. From a Classical Education, of a centuries old tradition, to Religion, and active citizenship, which all held that independent thought and action, was the highest virtue. Where ethics, morality, and a new commercial age; had the potential to unite Humankind; and free their political economy, from the misery of the British political economy.

    The transition, of this heritage,—cultural, political, social, religious, and economic— that ultimately brought revolution and self-realization, was sprung from an intellectual and spiritually faithful civilization. Colonial, European, and classical history was America's history, in the sense that, the social evolution, and events from the Renaissance, led the revolutionary generation to make a break from the past. Not a divorce from the past; just a break; and to begin anew.  

     The History of Virtue and Corruption tells the story of the tens of thousands of Western Europeans who ventured to the North American British colonies during the seventeenth and eighteenth-centuries. What were their customs of Law and education; religious, philosophical, or political thought?

     The Founders’ ideas about the duty and obligation of government, came from more than five hundred years of English tradition. For it was their ancestors who brought their king under the law; and the revolutionary generation of the eighteenth-century, was determined to do the same, but this time, they would make a government of laws not of men. Privilege was out and merit was in. However, in the 1790s, a new political base emerged, with quite different ideas in mind.       Subsequently, the great republican experiment, not only; DID NOT FAIL, it was never allowed to happen, before a new and different kind of authority and political base had changed the republican regime from within, immediately after the inception of the infant republic.  

     As the revolutionary generation stood in awe of what was happening, to their Revolution, they could only and quickly, distance  themselves, as their republic unraveled about them.
