Aubrey Glen Mobley
About the Author:

 

Aubrey Glen Mobley was born in the northeast corner of the state of Arkansas. When he was five years old he moved to the state of Arizona.

 There he met an Indian boy named Petie Martinez. Although Glen was only in the first grade, he was fascinated by his Indian friend. One day, Glen, went with his mother and father, to the Indian reservation, to meet the real American Indian. They even went to the mountains, where they explored the village of the cliff dwellers; an awesome sight.

 He returned to Arkansas five years later, where he attended Lafe High School. After graduation he went to Flint, Michigan, where he got a job at the Fisher Body plant, later named the Chevrolet Truck and Bus plant. He retired in 1995 and returned to northeast Arkansas, where he purchased the Spirit Lake property.

     The original lake, built by beaver, was destroyed in the 1800’s, when loggers cleared the land of all the trees.

     In 1980, Spirit Lake Development Corporation rebuilt the lake, renaming it Spirit Lake. Reaganomics halted any further development of the property.

     In 1995, Glen learned he had Indian blood. His great grandmother was full-blooded Quapaw Indian. With that knowledge and a story to tell, he began to research his heritage. With the help of Bill Jones, the story has now been told.

                This story is about the Quapaw Indians that lived on Spirit

          Lake in the 1500s.                         

Description:

This is the story of a young Quapaw Indian boy who lived in northeast Arkansas, just north of the present day city of Pocahontas, in the year 1541, and how his life was drastically changed by events not of his choosing. How he took on the mighty De Soto and his entire army, as he sought revenge for what De Soto had done to his people. He was the last of his tribe, and he would slay the famous conquistador, De Soto. Kyota was transformed from a young boy, who simply wished to be a great hunter, into a great warrior, and the legend of Spirit Lake.

Description:

     Destined for a brilliant career in academia, Pascal Silver instead decides to be a risk taker. Packing up his unfinished philosophy dissertation he moves to Las Vegas to pursue his dual goals of winning the World Series of Poker and the only slightly less daunting task of finding the meaning to existence.

     Low on cash, Pascal is forced to take a part-time job at a private detective agency. Now, with his boss out of town, into his life walks the gorgeous Allegra LaPierre. She asks Pascal to find out who murdered her father, casino owner “Houston Phil” LaPierre.

     Using his uncanny poker skills, Pascal can tell everyone involved with Houston Phil has something to hide, including his ex-stripper widow, his knucklehead son, Bruce, and his old business partner, Fat Johnny, who’s in debt to a local gangster. Complicating matters, Bruce LaPierre is suddenly found dead in his office and the number one suspect is Allegra. Though all the evidence points to his client’s guilt, Pascal falls back on the famous wager of faith put forth by his illustrious namesake. He chooses to have faith in Allegra, not just because he’s gone head over heels for her, but because it’s a good bet.

     But when representatives of the Chicago mob show up and tell him to drop the case, Pascal has to take his greatest gamble yet. With Allegra’s life hanging in the balance, he’ll need to pull off the biggest bluff he’s ever attempted to get her back alive. Even if he does, he’s still left with the question “Who killed Phil?” a question only he is shrewd enough to answer.

About the Author:
The author: Shelia Zulfiqar has an active lifestyle. She travels often. She knows first hand how a demanding schedule can be stressful on your hair. In this book she talks about her battle with dry, brittle hair. She shows how her hair became moisturized, strong and began retaining length. She discovered that everyones hair grows, the trick is to learn how to retain and maintain growth.This is a step by step guide towards growing a healthy head of hair.
Description:
Ethnic Hair Maintaince and Retention Guide: Types 3c and 4 What afro ethnic women have been taught about hair has a major influence on how each woman takes care of her hair. The fact is we come from so many varied cultural backgrounds and our hair textures vary (from a very thick tightly kinky curl to very fine naturally straight). There are many textures in between the above mentioned. When I talk about afro ethnic hair I must identify the texture type I am giving information about. In this book I will be discussing techniques helpful for hair type 3c and all the type 4’s. These hair types need a lot of patience and care. Sort of like tending a garden and watching seeds and bulbs bloom into beautiful healthy vibrant flowers (this cannot be achieved without a lot of time, effort and care.) Developing a regular hair care regime, using products that your hair responds well to is very important. After much hair growth heartbreak, I started researching how hair grows. I learned about hair types and more importantly how those precious strands stay on your head. Reading about hair became my obsession. I learned what I could and applied the new information to my daily hair regime. Guess what? My hair stopped breaking off and began retaining length.

Toni Annable
About the Author:

As a "public healthe"r I have always been interested in adult literacy. Reading is vitally important and helping people get to their highest potential is a goal. I have taken many courses in literacy education and admired the methods, but I found that most relied on graded children's books to assist adult students. So, I decided to write stories incorporating the graded readers' vocabulary with an adult theme. I love mysteries and chose my first story in that genre. The Caretaker is writen for the young adult and adult new reader, ESL/EFL students. There is very little fiction which is based on this principle and I am pleased to make this story one of them.

When I'm not writing,both adult literacy books and children's books, I spend my time editing other manuscripts and a plant tissue culture newsletter. I have a Master's Degree in Public Health and started out in nursing and health education. Later I taught in elementary schools.

Description:

 

Someone has been digging up the new graves in the cemetery. Caretaker Joe thought that grave robbing went out with the middle ages. So, who has been disturbing the sleep of the newly dead? Nothing to do but wait them out on a dark night among the gravestones. Just after the funeral of one of the town’s richest men, they strike again. Joe thinks he’s trapped them, but the surprise is on him. Super illustrations by Lauren Phillips really enhance the story.

What? No gore? No violence? No graphic sex? Can this story be any good?

Yes!

This short mystery is written to encourage reading enjoyment especially for the young adult and the adult new reader. The story line is appropriate for ages 12 and up. It is extremely suitable for reading programs, adult education, ESL programs, libraries, prison libraries and special education programs. And really, for all of us who enjoy reading a scary tale.

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.

Read The Fire Sisters, the thrilling conclusion to the bestselling young adult fantasy Brilliant Darkness series! There are three novels and two short stories in the series. The first novel, The Scourge, was a finalist for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award.

Candida Andriole
About the Author:

Candida Andriole was born in New York City and grew up in the suburbs in Westbury, Long Island.    She attended and graduated from Westbury High School and then went on to seek a Bachelor of Arts from the State University of New York in Cultural Studies.  After graduation she followed her passion and studied theater and dance; acting at the HB Studio and dance at Carnegie Hall and at the Chuck Kelly Dance Studio and then joined the musical revue “A Tribute to America” as a dancer and stayed with the show until it closed. 

Her interest in the world of arts and entertainment drew her to dabble in theater and film.  She worked on productions at Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York during summers. She had the good fortune to work with  Douglas Fairbanks Jr. on his last acting role in a theater production.  She later worked as an assistant on the production crews of the films Wise Guys starring Danny Devito and The Pick Up Artist with Robert Downey, Jr.

After a short lived career in arts and entertainment she decided to go back to school to study Entertainment Law at Nova University Law School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  She spent her last semester of law school as an intern in the Monroe County Public Defender's Office in Key West where she worked after passing the Florida Bar exam, as an assistant public defender.  Her life took a dramatic turn a year and a half later and she decided to stay in Key West and open her own practice as a criminal defense attorney.  In 1996 she threw her hat into the political arena campaigning for the seat of Monroe County Public Defender.  She did not win the election and the loss sent her right back to where she was most comfortable; to her passion for the arts.  She is currently semi-retired, writing mystery novels, living in Key West with her cat Cleopaco.

 

Description:

 Key West attorney Candida Andriole delivers to her readers a birds eye view into the private lives of the local residents of a tiny island in the Florida Keys. Interwoven into her writing are some of her most memorable legal adventures of her twenty something years of experiences as a practicing attorney.  Her debut novel is the story of the harrowing roller coaster ride the residents and local police are forced to take and what they endure when a killer inserts himself into their calm and peaceful existence.

 

            Zoe St Clare lawyer and professor of forensic sciences has relocated to the island to escape a gruesome past filled with murder and mayhem and the lingering memories of a brutal murderer. The island Police Chief Rolando Castaneda enlists her aid in hunting a serial killer when an horrific series of incidents threaten to put a damper on the event that brings more business to the island in one week than all the rest of the year put together and to leave the Police Chief without a job.

 

The year round residents and law enforcement are bracing themselves for the onslaught of tourists attending the week-long celebration when the faceless body of a bride is discovered on the beach moments before her wedding ceremony is to begin. This is only the first of a series of grizzly incidents involving an elusive and insidious killer who can’t possibly be human and do the unspeakable things that he does. The island has never experienced such horror.

 

Zoe faces much more than she bargained for when she becomes mired in a frightening ordeal that involves her former life in New York City. She struggles personally with the similarities between the killings on the island and the murders that have been haunting her.

 

In the middle of his campaign for re-election and the worst heat wave in the history of the Florida Keys, Chief Castaneda assisted by Zoe St Clare makes a desperate attempt to keep his job and to figure out if there is more than one madman on the island before the killer strikes again.

I'm very interested in understanding people's feelings, and learning to know more about the interconnectedness they share with others in the development of their lives. Reader input has taken this process full circle for me, providing insights into both my storyline, and the private stories of readers, too.

The Geode Room has provided me with a setting to share the wisdom I've learned throughout my life. It's a fun and interesting story that encourages readers to become deeply involved with both the characters and setting.

This is a route suggestion for independent, curious travellers who know how to read a map. There are plenty of excellent travel guide books available. We wrote this book in response to our readers, who often asked; “How do I plan my trip for five days in Crete”? This suggested pathway, with different options, will help you travel Crete on the back roads.

About the Authors: Written and researched by We Love Crete; Apostolis Heretis-Hadoulis, Anastasios Hadoulis and Katia Luz.

About We Love Crete - a website sharing our love of Crete and Greece - this is a family creation. We are Anastasi and Apostoli, brothers whose mother was born in Crete, and we love to share Kriti and her spirit with you. The real Crete, beyond the beach, the rustic, authentic island, brimming with her own fiercely independent character and culture, home of local people with hearts of gold. Ela, come, Kriti and her charms await.

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…

Description:

In the spring of 1867, with the new underwater cable bringing word to America of a rising throughout Ireland, the New York-based Fenian Brotherhood decides to make good on a long-standing commitment to provide military aid to its counterpart in Ireland, the Irish Republican Brotherhood. Experienced Union Army officers -- Civil War veterans of the Federal Army's Irish Brigades -- become cargo, along with thousands of long-stockpiled weapons and millions of rounds of ammunition. All are loaded aboard a two-masted, square-rigged brigantine that sails in April from Sandy Hook, New York, to Ireland's western highlands. The rest, as they say, is history. 

"Erin's Hope" is a historical novel that blends real and composite characters into actual and fictionalized events associated with the little-known nautical expedition that took a one-ship Fenian "armada" on a 9,000-mile voyage that proved to be a military mission that both succeeded admirably and failed miserably.

Through its main characters, "Erin's Hope" traces the social, political, economic and deeply personal origins of 19th Century Irish-American involvement in what remains, well more than a century later, an ongoing struggle over British involvement in Irish affairs

Mis versos son verdades incompletas, nacidas en los instantes de una mirada entre párpados intimidados; un acercamiento fugaz a la forma en que unos brazos yacen apoyados, al color brillante de un suspiro, a la exigencia de alegría o tristeza que guardan los pequeños gestos que apenas se perciben, a la lágrimas de la emoción estética...; afloran como un saber dormido en una idea que despierta.

...

Porque yo, soy poeta, leo las almas

y cuento las lágrimas de la vida.

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

Description:

Este libro es un canto al mar, al agua y a la vida.

El agua, uno de los elemenbtos que nos constituyen y habitamos, se mueve y se transforma entre azules, pacíficos o plenos de conmoción. Siempre hay que atrapar la mano de su color, guía hacia las verdades iniciales y profundas.

About the Author:

I have been in the music industry for the past 30 years. I was lucky to have started in the old system where if you wanted to be a music producer you did an apprenticeship in a recording studio shadowing producers and learnt as you went along. If you were lucky you got to observe some of the greats of music and production create materpieces that stood the test of time. I was extremely lucky!

My career has taken me from Ireland, the UK, around Europe, USA and to Australia. I have met and collaborated with some of the greats in music production and artists. Some of the ones I am most proud of are U2, Def Leppard (Hysteria album, Depeche Mode (Violator Album), Black Sabbath, Yes and many more. Since 2002 I have been a tutor at BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music) and have developed a real passion for music education, especially as the opportunities that I had are not their any more.

I think it is really important to share knowledge and the digital age makes that possible so much easier than before. This first installment is based on a series of questions that I regularly get asked by students.

Description:

This book is short, deliberately. In this digital age I think people want authors (of non-fiction anyway) to get to the point and tell them what they need to know quickly. It may be short but I believe it is rich in concepts that used correctly can accelerate someone's progress to becoming a great music producer.

It was written because I have searched but never found a guide to Music Production that gives the reader an insight to what is actually important. Most Music Production courses, magazines and books focus on the use of equipment like software packages and microphone placement. These are extremely useful but they are a guide on how to use the TOOLS not what music production is really about. It's a bit like telling an artist about the different brushes they can use for different situations and them expecting them to be the next Monet or Picasso!

When I first started as a runner in a studio almost 30 years ago, I was sat down by the Chief Engineer and told that the most vital thing to understand and remember is that music production is 95% psychology and 5% technology. In my view too much of the material out there focuses on the 5% technology so I want to redress the balance in a small way.

I intend this small book to be the first in a series so my hope is that readers will give constructive feedback with requests for other areas that they would like covered in the future. Until then good luck!

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.

Carol O'Connor
About the Author:

Pain is something Carol puts her hands on every day.  With training and experience, it is sometimes obvious that the pain that troubles a person has roots deeper than the pain that presents.

Sometimes, it is quite simply a postural fault, especially as we all crunch ourselves in front of computers for hours on end, whether we are working or playing. 

Carol has been doing hands on work with clients for over 20 years and became a licensed massage therapist in 2006 with well over 2000 hours of training and thousands more in experience and learning.  Her desire to help with her clients' healing probably stems from a family history of migraines, her mother's background in nursing and her father's in spiritual care.

Description:

This is a straight forward look at the most common, "every day" injuries and pains that tend to present in the offices of doctors, physios and other manual therapists.

Carol writes in a light hearted, clear style.  Medical terminology is explained simply and some of the most obvious reasons for pain are illuminated.  Headaches, knee pain, and back pain are common to many people.  This book helps you to pinpoint what's hurting and why.

Roger K. Miller
About the Author:

           Roger K. Miller, author also of the novels Invisible Hero and Dragon in Amber and of the non-fiction work, The Chenango Kid: A Memoir of the Fifties, 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:

           Constance (Connie) Pendleton and Connor Martin live in the rundown working-class section of a medium-sized industrial city. Their sixth-grade teacher calls them her “two Connies,” a label they despise but that is the spark that melts their wariness of one another and turns them into friends.

            It is the early 1950s. While the rest of America is growing prosperous, their two families live on the economic edge, Connie with her parents and younger sister, Connor with his Aunt Meg, older sister of his deceased mother. At first the only thing Connie and Connor share is their embarrassment over the shabby, small apartments in which they live. But gradually the things they have in common, including a love of the decade’s movies and music, bring about mutual admiration. Each is troubled by a death in the past.

            Connor’s Aunt Meg, divorced and childless, loves him fiercely. But she has a married boyfriend, Sam, whose volatility and air of danger add to Connor’s fearfulness.

            As friends Connie and Connor complement and are good for each other. Throughout the decade—as they go through school and domestic routine, enjoying dances and movies and other activities—the closeness of their relationship wanes and waxes, until by their senior years it looks as if it might blossom into romance and love.

            Theirs is a Lost World in that the 1950s (revived for the reader in the narrative of these lives) is a time long gone by and foreign to most of us. In a darker sense of the title, Connie and Connie lose their world, smashed for them by a series of disasters.

            They flee from each other and from their sorrows, lost to each other for years—until one of those coincidences that happen in life more often than in books. But after all the sadness, can the coincidence bring happiness?

           An epilogue provides a startling, even shocking, ending—and resolves a troubling issue, introduced in the prologue, that crops up again and again throughout the novel.
