Florentina Gómez Guasp (Palma de Mallorca, 1954)

Licenciado en Filosofía y Ciencias de la Educación, especialidad en Pedagogía Terapéutica; Poeta.

Mis versos son verdades incompletas, nacidos en el instante de una mirada entre unos párpados intimidados; una breve aproximación a la forma en la que yacen los brazos apoyados, con el color brillante de un suspiro, a la necesidad de la alegría o la tristeza que guardan los pequeños gestos que apenas se perciben, a las lágrimas de emoción estética ...; emergen como un conocimiento dormido en una idea que despierta.

...

Porque yo soy un poeta, leo las almas

y cuento las lágrimas de la vida.

Me gusta definirme como: "amigo de las Horas, que custodian las puertas de cielo, de la lluvia, el silencio y sus colores"

Description:

Este libro habla de la experiencia emocional de amor, que al igual que la música y las matemáticas, es un lenguaje universal que nos hace ver lo mejor de los demás y nos hace sentir bien con nosotros mismos y con el mundo.

Roger K. Miller
About the Author:
Description:

Constance (Connie) Pendleton and Connor Martin, both 13 years old, are friends and classmates in the upstate New York city of Billington. In the summer of 1954 they are vaguely aware that they might want to be something more than friends, for they are also vaguely aware of their budding sexuality and the distant allure of romance.

            Connie and Connor tell their story, which encompasses details of Americans’ way of life in the 1950s, in the first person in alternating short chapters (1,500 to 2,500 words) in language appropriate to young persons of the time.

They befriend a new kid, Sidney Asher, also 13 years old, an orphan who has come from Calais, Maine, to Billington to live with his uncle, Clark Meredith, and the uncle’s new wife, Frances. Sidney is a shy, retiring boy of formal manners. Connie and Connor’s friendship helps him adjust to a new way of life in a different region of the country.

The three young persons’ happy discovery of one another is shaken, as is their world, when Connie and Connor come across a criminal plot that could severely endanger the lives of Sidney and his newfound uncle and aunt.

But Connie and Connor, like Nancy Drew joining hands with one of the Hardy Boys, become involved, at first reluctantly, then steadfastly. What ensues is a snooping about followed by a fast-paced chase, resulting in the two youngsters’ separately saving each other’s life.

Ending, of course, happily—and with a last-minute twist.

Roger K. Miller
About the Author:

Roger K. Miller, author also of the novels Invisible Hero and Dragon in Amber, was a newspaper writer and editor for more than thirty years. He is a freelance writer and critic whose work has appeared in numerous metropolitan newspapers and other publications. He and his wife Nancy, parents of three grown children, live in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.

 

Description:

Two narratives intertwine in The Chenango Kid. One is the personal story of the author, Roger Miller, who grew up on Chenango Street, a main artery of the medium-sized industrial city of Binghamton, New York, in the 1950s. The second is the larger story of the 1950s. Each narrative enlarges upon the other.

Many elements make up the personal: a devastating house fire; a single mother who liked to work and to frequent taverns; a father, mystified by life; less devoted to work than to benignly stalking his son; a half-sister long unknown; a drunken and/or crazy uncle or two; a boyhood paradise in the hills of Pennsylvania; and a passion for reading and art. All in all an unconventionally conventional working-class youth.

The Chenango Kid also connects Chenango Street to the wider world of the Fifties, a vibrant, explosive decade in art, literature, music, movies, and television—making it The Decade That Never Ends. The popular culture of no other ten-year span in the century continues to exert its influence as strongly or to be revived as often as that of the 1950s.

About the Author:

          People often ask what made me want to write a book at this stage in my life and career?  Well, I'm not sure really. I guess I had a story in my head that I needed to tell. That often leads them to ask if the book is somewhat autobiographical. The story itself is in no way connected to my life but the interplay between the characters in some cases includes elements of relationships I've had in my time. So I guess the answer is maybe a little bit?

          Some ask why paranormal? I can safely say I've been touched by practically every social disease that exists in one way or another - either personally or with family, friends - be it addiction, violence, disease, incest, mental illness, lack of faith, dysfunction, racism, sexism, or  . . . you name it. I guess these pieces since already explored in my real life, lost some of their horror and only seemed interesting enough to write about when rubbed up against the 'other worldly'.

           Who is Lyla? I get that one from time to time. Throughout the two years it took me to write the book, I believed Lyla to be more closely aligned to my daughter - saucy and sassy personality, appearance, multi-culturalism, etc. But later as I talked about the characters in detail, people closest to me pointed out that Lyla can only be 'me'. I guess I've accepted that to some degree at this point.

          What about Brian, and the sick relationship between he and Lyla? Well, I'll keep the answer to that between my therapist and I.

          And, Ollie? I sometimes think that character represents all I once thought I had to be in life:  self-less, dependable, extremely capable, and hopelessly bound by the past. 

          And well, of course, there's The Bishop. Everybody asks about The Bishop. I can only tell you - He Exists. :)

          Why do I think 'Standing in the Gap' is something special? Well, because I wrote it, of course. :)  But beyond that, it falls outside the commonly defined lines of street lit or urban fiction. While it certainly has its share of drugs, violence and sex, it is not really about street life per se- in fact, I believe its gift is the juxtaposition between those raw elements and that of the magnificent and mystical world of the Seioka (the meaning of which you'll only understand if you read my book).

          From the moment I sat down to key the first words of the book, I knew it would include lots of jaw dropping moments, tear jerker moments, and elements people with high sensibilities might find unacceptable or offensive. I wanted the reader to be completely surprised by the twists and shocked as the shameful secrets are at last revealed. I knew I had to deliver fast-paced action and the romance must be highly charged. I wanted the reader to truly feel it as the characters' lives spun out of control - there could be no 'down time' !

         While paranormal is the backdrop, the story is on the whole a hybrid of a crime thriller, erotica, and a tiny bit of existential philosophy.

         It would bring me absolute delight to have you read my novel!

Description:

What’s left when the truth destroys? Lyla Frazier, trying desperately to put the past and the shame behind her, seeks an answer to that question in Standing in the Gap. Ollie loved Lyla. He loved her in spite of the dark secret, in spite of her mental illness, in spite of the fact she would never love him the way he deserved because no matter how much she wanted to, Lyla couldn’t get a dead man out of her heart.

They believed the horror of the previous year was over, that the cost to end it had been paid with the lives of those they loved. But they were wrong. Soon they would each realize the evil taking place in Arcola was but one step in completing a new and even more sickening campaign to bring forth the Shakshi Mati. Could Lyla stop Noire, the flamboyant, sadistic Seioka at the helm of the new campaign? Would she find a way to let the past go finally, to move on, in love? Or would the darkness envelope her mind again, this time forever? Standing In The Gap is a love story, a story of survival, bravery, and self-discovery.

Description:

SURFEANDO LAS OLAS DE LA VIDA es una novela iniciática basada en experiencias reales y complementadas por eventos puramente imaginarios que tienen lugar en las dimensiones sutiles e invisibles.

Este libro ha sido escrito con el noble propósito de ayudar a la colectividad de la que somos parte, partiendo de su unidad más pequeña, la individualidad.

Para mejorar el mundo, tenemos que empezar por nuestra vida, nuestro verdadero campo de acción y de experiencia, el único sobre el que tenemos poder total. Si todos dirigiéramos nuestra atención al desarrollo de la conciencia, el mundo no tardaría en volverse un lugar más amoroso y pacífico.

El camino empieza con uno mismo, y siendo que estamos en todo el globo, poco a poco, a través de las mejorías que cada uno logra en su vida, estaremos iluminando todo el planeta, justamente gracias a las muchas llamas individuales que se han vuelto a encender, alumbrando tanto la propia vida como la de los que nos rodean.

SURFEANDO LAS OLAS DE LA VIDA es una novela original y autentica, que trae información interesante y novedosa, mostrando una porción de lo que es la espiritualidad, y ¿cómo no?, invitando a la acción, porque de nada sirve saber si después no se comprueba la veracidad de la información recibida en la experiencia propia, que es y seguirá siendo lo fundamental en el camino de florecimiento interior al que este libro le está invitando.

La vida acontece siempre y solo en el eterno momento presente. Aproveche la sincronicidad que se le presenta, aquí y ahora, y súbase encima de la ola que está cruzando su camino, cuyo fin es el de encaminarle hacia su sanación, liberación y felicidad.

Aprender a surfear con conciencia las olas de la vida es el camino que ahora tenemos que recorrer, siempre acordándonos que las olas no vienen para hacernos sufrir sino para hacernos crecer.

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.

Castel is an elf stranded in human lands, slowly dying from lack of magical energy. Mendry is a human assassin descended from a line of vampire 'Dragon Knights' who seek to bring an evil dragon back to life.

When Mendry's father steals a child he believes to be his grand-daughter, the seventh generation needed to carry out the resurrection ritual, Mendry and Castel come together to save an innocent life, facing evil mages and more. Together with the child's uncle and mother, they make an unlikely band of heroes, and find a whole new meaning to the word family.

Reviews:

"Castel’s and Mendry’s relationship is as intriguing as the journeys they must take to protect the innocent. Emily Veinglory pens a fascinating fantasy tale which spins its web as tightly as if it were a realistic contemporary piece. Once again, her gift for characterization is apparent, with deeply-realised characters to whom the reader is immediately drawn." [TwoLips Reviews]

About the Author:

Threat is my first novel, Book One of The Barren Spheres Trilogy. It's science fantasy with an environmental and political thriller component. The scale is small, the scope large. The main characters live below our feet, in a world thrown out of balance by inexplicable changes in access to resources, nutrition and living space. They may have ten legs and eight eyes but that does not stop them from engaging in Machiavellian schemes to exploit the riches of neighboring spheres, or mounting diplomatic initiatives to forestall war and bring peace.

My background as an Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker focusing on human rights and social justice issues definitely influenced the story of Threat. Without being fully conscious of it, countless moments from my experiences making films in many parts of the world found their way -- transformed of course -- into the story of Threat. For example, I once spent weeks in holed up in a delapidated hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, working with the man who led the 1964 revolution in Zanzibar, Field Marshal John Okello on his memoir. Palace intrigues, clandestine operations, ideological purity, and armed force all played a part in his story and, many years later, informed my own understanding of how the Hyavvi and the Lo-Ans, the principal groups of "Liviings" in Threat, would act in the midst of a conflict over wealth and resources. Similarly, my years of working with one of the leading trade unions in North America, UNITE HERE, helped me understand how the characters in Threat would go about implementing strategies, mobilizing their followers, and responding to serious challenges to their health and well-being.

I'd say that anyone who likes a good political thriller, set in a world that co-exists with ours, but with all the elements of speculative fiction and fantasy, will find Threat an unusual read, both entertaining and thought-provoking.

 

Description:

The declaration of war was delivered just before darkfall.

Prepare to be invaded.

Winkon’s breath caught in his throatstem at the document’s audacity.

Our food sources are disappearing.

And ours are not? thought Winkon.

Our offspring shrivel from lack of nourishment.

Yes, and ours also. How will sending the parents of your offspring into another Sphere, ours, to die while killing the parents of our offspring—address the Threat?

 If you wish to capitulate in advance….

This time it wasn’t a thought, but a response, reverberating through Winkon’s whole being. Never. Never. Never.

*  *  *

An eight-eyed Hitler. A ten-legged espionage agent. A carapaced Queen. An intelligence-gathering avian courier service. A resistance fighter able to blur herself into invisibility. Sibling  survivors of The Mist.

These vibrant, dimensional characters and many more come together, and burst apart, in Threat. It’s a war of the worlds, in a time of diminishing resources, incomprehensible plagues, apocalyptic catastrophes, and tremors of extinction. Is it our world? Yes; no. Threat is familiar, casting a storyteller’s timeless, irresistible net (courage, betrayal; humor, fear, hope; a hostile, take-no-prisoners political climate and a desperate diplomatic search for peace).

Yet Threat is startlingly new. The ground it breaks is right below our feet, where the main characters reside. There, on a fine, thin thread already fraying, the future hangs in the balance. Must it be the terrifying one, whose limits are already in evidence? Or is there another, more hopeful possibility?

In  350 pages, Threat shows us the biggest picture there is, writ deep and small, microscopically so. With elements of science-fantasy, speculative fiction and political thriller, filled with brilliant characters, and non-stop, cliff-hanger action, told in language reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange’s inventiveness, Threat will provoke, satisfy, and enthrall readers.

At this juncture in my life I have a very strong desire to write a children’s fantasy story. I suppose the desire to write has been lying dormant. When I was a teen I wrote a poem as a classroom assignment and found that I enjoyed creating with words. Over the years I have written poems for my eyes only. I submitted one of my poems in a contest several years ago and it was selected for publication.  “Lonely Heart” published by the International Library of Poetry as a compilation in The Silent Journey

I wrote a short story for one of my daughters when she was around five years old about her backyard adventures. She loved it! Sometimes when my nieces would visit I made up stories to entertain them. I held them capative for a little while telling a story off the top of my head.

Here I am many years later pursuing my passion to write.

Earth Allies is a very good read.  I wrote the story to deliver a message.  The message is love, unity, and compassion. 

Description:

Twelve-year old Ethan decided to take a short-cut home, through the woods, from school after band practice.  While making his way home through the woods Ethan has an experience that he never imagined; he encounters two fairies.  Frightened and confused he runs home.  It wasn’t until his second encounter with the fairies that he learned what they wanted. The fairies explained to him that Gaia/Mother Earth is in danger of being destroyed and they ask Ethan to help them save her. Ethan eventually agrees to help but this is no easy task.  He is faced with several challenges trying to save Gaia/Mother Earth and he has a very short time frame to turn everything around. 

This story is a fantasy, written for youths ages 10-13.  It is warm and heartfelt.  Your child will enjoy reading a wonderful story about fairies and children coming together to save Gaia/Mother Earth.

Shirley Kennett has worn a number of hats, including those of corporate analyst, programmer, independent computer consultant, and pet store employee (the one who cleans the cages), but her writer's hat is by far the most comfortable--and most satisfying--of them all. She has been a fan of suspense and thrillers as long as she can remember, which may have had something to do with growing up in a converted turn-of-the-century funeral home.

Kennett has been involved with computers most of her life. In her consulting career, she focused on improving the quality of patient care through computerized clinical applications.

She discovered motherhood not in the usual fashion, but by bringing home an adopted child from Peru, astounding herself by falling in love with her son at first sight, changing her first diaper, and floating down the Amazon, all on the same trip. Eight years later, an Ethiopian boy joined the family. The two boys, close in age, created "twins" from greatly different cultures. Truly hers is a global family.

Kennett is a graduate of the Washington University School of Engineering in St. Louis, Missouri. She is a St. Louis native, a member of the Mystery Writers of America, the American Crime Writers League, Romance Writers of America, the Horror Writers Association, and International Thriller Writers, where she was a national board member. Her hobbies are reading (not surprising), gardening, and photography. Kennett is a frequent speaker at conferences and has taught writing classes online and in person. She has been a judge for the Edgar Awards several times.She resides in Missouri with her husband Dennis, sons Tom and Tim, and two cats, Marble and Snickers..

Description:

In this suspenseful thriller, a celebrated pianist has been found dead, decapitated by a sharp instrument, possibly a meat cleaver. His head is missing. The skin on his back has been carved into the bas-relief of a mongrel dog. It is a savage, seemingly senseless slaying. But it is only the first.

Penelope Jennifer Gray, known as PJ, is a newly divorced psychologist making a fresh start with her twelve-year-old son in St. Louis. A pioneer in the competitive field of computer simulation studies, she has been hired to set up a new division within the St. Louis Police Department. Through cutting-edge techniques of virtual reality, the Computerized Homicide Investigations Project, or CHIP, recreates real-life crimes by placing the user in the mind of the perpetrator.

PJ is teamed up with Leo Schultz, a veteran cop fast approaching burnout, to investigate the case that has St. Louis is a death-grip: the city is being terrorized by what could be the most unstoppable serial killer in history.

He's a face in the crowd. A figure in the shadows. The guy standing behind you at the street corner, waiting for the light to change. With each fresh killing, Pauley Mac adds another victim to his "guest" list. They are the voices in his head. The coveted talents he hopes to one day possess. The furies he can no longer control.

For PJ Gray, it will take all of her instincts as a psychologist and as a woman to beat Pauley Mac at his own game. To survive, she must enter the mind of a killer.

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.

About the Author:

Tina is an early school leaver who used to be thrown out of class for laughing too much. She's an unschooler at heart and an ungraduate who made her own education in life, she thanks everyone she's ever met, they all taught her something. She landed on Earth in Karlskoga, Sweden, 1969 and has tried to adjust ever since. Tina's writing takes her off the beaten track and the best writing advice she ever got was, write what you want to find out more about. She lives in Dublin, Ireland with her non-traditional family.

This story is rewritten more times than Tina can remember, it’s her learning to write in English story and she’s immensely proud for not giving up, but she has given in to the fact that she does tell a story differently.  Tina loves dialogue, a lot, and she doesn’t pay attention to details as much as maybe she should, she likes the bigger picture, and for her deep hearted, radically honest conversations are it.

Micheal Maxwell
About the Author:
Taught the amazing beauty and majesty of the English language by Bob Dylan, Robertson Davies, Charles Dickens and Leonard Cohen in a way school could never inspire, I have a lifelong desire to use words to paint pictures in the tales I long to tell. Coming of age in the turbulent 60’s, life has been a journey of successes and failures, but, as Dylan said, “There is no success like failure”. Each defeat was actually a fork in the road leading to the world of the written word. It seems like the road less traveled, but it has taken me to where I needed to be. I have traveled the globe, dined with politicians, rock stars and beggars. I have rubbed shoulders with priests and murderers, surgeons and drug dealers, each one giving me a part of themselves that will live again in the pages of my books. I have been blessed to be married for over thirty five years, given three sons and now three grandchildren. What you read today is just a small part of what I have to give you.
