Gene Twaronite's stories have been published by Avatar Review, Fast Forward Press, Highlights for Children, Kids'Magination, Mouse Tales Press, Read (Weekly Reader), and The Write Room as well as in a book anthology by Heinemann (In Short: How to Teach the Young Adult Story, Edited by Suzanne I. Barchers, 2005). He is also the author of the middle grade novel The Family That Wasn't - the prequel to My Vacation in Hell.
"Before writing his novel," says the author, "I spent time researching Dante’s work as well as to other depictions of hell as described by various religions. I also read some of the literature dealing with sexual abuse and treatment. In my novel, I have tried to incorporate the three main symptoms or stages that a sexual abuse victim displays: disassociation, denial and repression of memories. Because it is sometimes necessary for a victim to confront the abuser, I decided to have John face his Uncle Vinnie in hell. And I especially wanted to have John’s gradual healing follow the general goals of sexual abuse treatment – of “finding the inner child” or the inner spirit that was damaged, of finding a place where one is whole and safe again."
"Having exposed my character John to sexual abuse in my earlier novel, I felt that I couldn't just leave him hanging there without trying to help him resolve his issues. I tried to imagine as best I could part of the horror experienced by a sexual abuse victim and how he might deal with it. It is my hope that in some small way my novel helps to address the needs of all who seek to find their own way out of hell."
My Vacation in Hell is a humorous young adult fantasy, written in first person narrative by a 15-year-old writer named John Boggle. The time period is the mid-1960’s. A troubled nerdy misfit and a frequent flyer of his imagination, John is inspired by a book report reading of Dante Alighieri’s the Inferno. In the eternity of the five minutes before summer vacation, he embarks on a pilgrimage based upon his own free-wheeling interpretation of the work.
Following Dante's lead, John populates his hell with all the people who have wronged him over the years, inventing deliciously cruel punishments for each of them in his teenage version of cosmic retribution. Aided by his best friend Virgil, a trusty guide in this shared imagination, John also struggles to come to terms with the world’s many evils. And as he descends further into this realm, he constructs his own hierarchy of evildoers, assigning them to the levels he believes they deserve.
But it is the evil perpetrated upon John, a victim of sexual abuse, which poses the most difficult challenge for him. The deeper he goes, the more he encounters obstacles, some of whom in the guise of colorful demon characters try their best to keep him there. But the worst obstacle of all is his own self-image, forged out of guilt and shame. He will not leave this hell of his own making, Virgil tells him, until he learns how to deal with the evil done to him and finds the true center of his being.
Fortunately, he has other help besides the ever wise Virgil, who it turns out has a few problems of his own to deal with. John needs more than reason to get him through this, and divinely beautiful aid arrives in the form of Beth, an idealized version of his secret love. Rescuing the pair from the evil that threatens to consume them, she will guide John in the last stage of his spiritual odyssey. She shows him that there are even some good places in Hell, just as there is always some good, however slight, that comes from our worst experiences. Though of necessity a darkly disturbing tale, My Vacation in Hell delivers an essential message as affirmative as the dawn.
Boo Walker spent his College of Charleston years and a few after in Nashville as a banjoist and songwriter for the avant-garde punchgrass band, The Biscuit Boys. Some hand problems knocked him out of the game, and he stumbled into a position with a short term equity trading firm based out of Charleston, SC. To feed his ravenous muse, he began writing his first novel, Lowcountry Punch. Around that time, what started as a passion in wine became a neurosis.
After six years of the Wall Street thing, Boo decided it was time to end his sedentary, computer-driven lifestyle. He grew out a handlebar mustache and moved clear across the country into a double-wide trailer situated on 5 acres of Malbec vines just down the road from Hedges Family Estate on Red Mountain in Washington State. The Hedges family took him in and taught him the art of farming and the old world philosophies of wine. He now travels the world peddling the family’s juice, and chances are you can find him in an airport somewhere working on his next novel.
In Charleston, South Carolina, Dewey Moses is a vegetable farmer, a bluegrass musician, a recovering alcoholic, and an aging hipster. In fact, he was wearing fedoras, rolled-up jeans, and Converse All-Stars before Portland and Brooklyn were born. Since getting booted out of his house and his band, he’s trying to get back on top. Now, he’s a year sober, and selling vegetables at the farmer’s market, but what he knows better than how to grow heirloom tomatoes is how to get down to the bottom of things. What started out as a favor for a friend is proving to be his most lucrative talent: investigative work.
But when Faye Callahan, the wife of one of the most powerful land developers in the South, comes to see him, she puts his talents to the test. Her daughter, Gina, jumped off the Cooper River Bridge a few days before. She left a suicide note in her abandoned car. There were witnesses. But Faye doesn’t believe it. Gina was as happy as she’d ever been, having just fallen in love. Why would her sweet baby take her own life? Agreeing to help, Dewey finds out quickly that sometimes it’s best to leave things alone.
Off You Go is a smart and quick read, and Dewey Moses is irresistible.
S.J. Munson has been a pastor, writer and teacher for the past two decades. He received a B.A. in English from Princeton, along with a prize for fiction. The author of numerous Christian dramas, his call to fulltime ministry came while he was working as a screenwriter in Hollywood. He went on to receive an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary, with a concentration in New Testament Greek.
“I love history and this story gave me an opportunity to weave history, faith and mystery into one story,” Munson said. “Anyone who is interested in fiction, art or ancient history will love this book.”
"There’s a lot of fiction or non-fiction out there that deals in some way with the temple treasure, the rebuilding of the temple, end-time prophecy and the State of Israel. I wanted to write a detective novel that challenges the reader both intellectually and emotionally to reexamine some dearly held assumptions in the light of history.
"The Romans looted the Jerusalem temple in AD 70, and I always wondered what became of those treasures. The Romans were such careful historians, whatever happened, there had to be a paper trail. As it turns out, the story is quite an epic. For five hundred years, the treasures survived fire, barbarian invasions and war, traveling from Jerusalem, to Rome, Carthage, Constantinople, and back to Jerusalem. Then, oddly, in the mid-sixth century, the trail goes cold. What happened after that is, of course, a source of much speculation, and that’s where fiction and imagination take over. The protagonist in my book gets caught up in the search but ends up finding something infinitely more valuable."

What ever happened to the treasures of the Jerusalem temple looted by the Romans in AD 70? Their fate is shrouded in mystery ...
Former art historian Michael Grammaticus, Jr. has inherited an ancient and dangerous secret-and it seems he is the last to know! When his parents are killed under suspicious circumstances, he travels to Rome to investigate, and the clues lead him to a fascinating world of ancient art, medieval manuscripts, and a dangerous mix of religion and international politics. Descended from an endless line of Greek scholars, he can't resist being drawn into their cryptic world, and soon the same relentless forces that destroyed his father begin to hound Michael as well. He discovers not only that his father had been an outspoken advocate for Palestinian Christians, but also that one of his ancestors was the bearer of a secret that continues to haunt his family-- a riddle regarding the whereabouts of the coveted treasure of King Herod's temple. This journey of discovery also becomes one of faith, as the cynical and disillusioned Michael undergoes a harrowing tribulation that leads him not only to the reasons for his father's death, but also to something far greater than the temple treasure itself. A delightful romp for lovers of fiction, art and ancient history-- and for anyone who ever wondered what really happened to that treasure!
"For a huge puzzle, I found not a puzzle-piece out of place. As the treasure-search genre of books expands, this quality is important. It also is an obvious treasure piece never before dealt with. This one hangs together. Needless to say, I recommend it without reservation." --Rev. Hank Keating, President, Keating Christian Ministries, Inc.
"Not since the early works of Morris West has a novel more accurately described the interplay of tensions between the religious world and Western society." --Christian Newswire
"What the avid reader of historical novels always needs is a well-researched, well-written novel that gives us a sense of having walked with the author into an enchanted land of his making. This, happily, is what S. J. Munson's novel does. It is not an ordinary historical novel, but one of depth and learning and style." --Ralph Stewart Smith, 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.
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.

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

Muriel Marks is currently preparing her next book, while making chutneys, jams and continuing to enjoy her passions of animals, antiques and books. My Double Life is her first book.
In 1987, in her late forties and with two marriages behind her, Muriel Marks decides to take control of her destiny, putting herself through night school to qualify as a chef. Destiny takes the upper hand however when, on a weekend break in the West Country she meets debonair English actor Leo Lewis, recently returned from the glittering world of Hollywood. Falling instantly in love, they decide to open their own restaurant together, fulfilling a long-cherished dream for Muriel. To attract visiting entertainers, they call their new venture ‘Backstage’, and Freddie Starr, Les Dawson and Johnny Cash all become appreciative patrons. Leo however prefers centre stage, especially when the alcohol is flowing. Toss a few pretty waitresses into the mix and the recipe soon becomes explosive. The little town of Paignton doesn’t know what’s hit it and neither does Muriel. As Leo’s wildly drunken behaviour escalates into violence, the restaurant degenerates into a nightly farce for the customers and a living nightmare for Muriel. After much angst she is forced to sell the business, and Leo departs back to the States and his Hollywood career. Absence soon makes the heart grow fonder however. Realising she is still in love, Muriel flies out to America to be with Leo. She finds him not in Hollywood but New Jersey, and living a far from glamorous life. The pair survive for a while on poorly paid menial work, buy a second-hand car and head west, bound for the sunshine coast of California and the movie capital of the world, where Leo has ‘contacts’. But as they pass deeper into the heart of America, with Leo increasingly drunk and Muriel in constant fear of arrest as an “illegal”, she realises she has absolutely no idea what lies ahead of her. “My Double Life” is a unique true story of cookery and crookery, showbiz and booze, of love, enduring friendship, aspiration, despair, and starting all over again. Its cast of characters is vivid and varied, from movie stars to tragic has-beens, villains and freaks to the merely eccentric, along with kindly, lost souls, everyday heroes and heroines, all set against the deceptively sleepy backdrop of the British seaside and the vast, alien landscape that is America. It is also about a woman who followed her heart and survived to tell the extraordinary tale.

Christopher Meeks was born in Minnesota, earned degrees from the University of Denver and USC, and has lived in Los Angeles since 1977. He's taught English at Santa Monica College, and creative writing at CalArts, UCLA Extension, Art Center College of Design, and USC. His fiction has appeared often in Rosebud magazine as well as other literary journals, and his books have won several Noble (not Nobel) Awards. His short works have been collected into two volumes, The Middle-Aged Man and the Sea and Months and Seasons, the latter which appeared on the long list for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award. He's had three plays produced, and Who Lives?: A Drama is published. His focus is now on longer fiction. His first novel is The Brightest Moon of the Century, and his second, Love At Absolute Zero.
Love At Absolute Zero is about a physicist who tries to apply the tools of science to finding a soul mate. Specifically, Gunnar Gunderson, a 32-year-old physicist at the University of Wisconsin, gets a promotion, and all he can think of now is finding a wife, causing his research to falter. To meet his soul mate within three days--that's what he wants and all time he can carve out--he and his team are using the scientific method, to riotous results.
"As if Einstein didn't struggle hard enough failing at a unified field theory," says Philip Persinger, author of Do The Math, "Meeks ups the ante by tossing philosophy, anthropology, hashish and love (with a capital L) into the mix. And while we're so sorry, Uncle Albert, in Love At Absolute Zero, Meeks succeeds absolutely."
"I've read both of Meeks's short story collections and The Brightest Moon of the Century," says author Kevin Gerard (Conor and the Crossworlds). "I roared through Love At Absolute Zero in a day and a half. Meeks's prose is carefully crafted, his characters compelling and entertaining. I love everything he writes, and I recommend Love At Absolute Zero without reservation."

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.

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.

He has a third degree black belt in Aikido and is an advanced practitioner of Zen Bodytherapy, a bodywork discipline that combines deep tissue and alignment work. Tom started his Zen training in 1977 and became a certified Zen meditation instructor in 1986. This background gives him a unique perspective in how to help riders use their bodies efficiently first off and then on their horses.
Zen & Horseback Riding explains the location, importance and use of the psoas muscles. The psoas are the deep core muscles that link the upper and lower girdles of the body. They are the basis of all efficient body movement and can be used by participants in any athletic activity.
This book explains how to correctly use your body to obtain tone (strength with flexibility), self-carriage (stability and lift) and movement (vertically bilateral in rhythm) both on and off the horse. Zen & Horseback Riding is about using horseback riding as a means of self-development and training. It is about improving both your riding and your life.

Finding a dead body changes a person.
22-year-old Audra Needham is back in her small New Mexico hometown. She just wants to fit in, work hard, and help her younger brother. Going for a walk in the woods with her former crush, Jay, seems like a harmless distraction.
Until they stumble on a body.
Jay, who has secrets of his own to protect, insists they walk away and keep quiet. But Audra can't simply forget what she's seen. The woman deserves to be found, and her story deserves to be told.
More than one person isn't happy about Audra bringing a crime to life. The dead woman was murdered, and Audra could be next on the vengeful killer's list. She’ll have to stand up for herself in order to stand up for the murder victim. It’s a risk, and so is reaching out to the mysterious young man who works with deadly birds of prey. With her 12-year-old brother determined to play detective, and romance budding in the last place she expected, Audra learns that some risks are worth taking – no matter the danger, to her body or her heart.
“Another action-packed suspense novel by Kris Bock, perhaps her best to-date. The author weaves an intriguing tale with appealing characters. Watching Audra, the main character, evolve into an emotionally-mature and independent young woman is gratifying.” Ellen Rippel

Écrit dans un style direct et limpide, ce texte démontre rigoureusement la validité de celle-ci par rapport aux idéologies et aux théories qui dominent nos sociétés. Ce texte renforcera la foi des croyants qui le liront. Il ébranlera les préjugés des incroyants qui oseront l'aborder et incitera certains d'entre eux à y revenir.
La voie du Dogme est un texte de plus de 500 pages. Pour faciliter sa lecture, chacun des sujets abordé est précédé d'un bref résumé. Ceux-ci, regroupés, constituent le Synopsis complet de l'oeuvre publié ici.
I wrote this book in high hopes of helping others who may suffer from the same emotional devistation that I had in losing my hair. Doctors were of no help and felt I HAD to do something. Friends were making comments and one even told me I was going to have to go get a wig soon. I was embarresed to go out in public and felt so self conscious. I was desperate! I did countless hours of research and put together a lot of valuable information. What did I get in return for all of that? A FABULOUS thick head of beautiful hair. Hair that I get cut once every 3 weeks because it grows so fast! Never again will I take that for granted. If you are experiencing hair loss this book can turn your life around.
RG Williams lives on the beautiful western slope of CO with her husband, 2 dogs, 2 cats, an old cow horse and a slightly demanding burro named Poncho (who if does not get his grain before sundown will remind her about it at approximately midnight.) :(
This book is filled with tons of valuable information to not only stop your hair from falling out but to start re-growing a GREAT new head of hair,"naturally of course."
You will also learn how taking some very inexpensive things internally and making a couple of easy changes can make your whole body not only function better but potentialy age slower. And yes, there is also some humor (even though losing your hair is anything BUT funny.)
Are you ready to get educated and get started on a beautiful new head of hair?
You will feel more confident, be happier and look "sexy" with your new head of beautiful hair!
Heaven's Not a Place is a story very close to my heart. I fell in love with the characters as I was writing about them. I lived and breathed them for so long in the writing process that I almost felt that they were my "other children." Their heartache was my heartache, and their triumph was mine as well. In this tender story of love, I hope that my readers fall in love with the characters of Annie, Jack and Jenna--just as I did.
Thank you for reading,
It's summertime, and Annie Harrison suffers the plight of many single parents—she misses her daughter. While she is struggling to adjust to Jenna’s absence, the tragic death of a dear friend delivers another cruel blow. Then her dreams begin—dreams that are both haunting and intriguing. And a series of strange incidents occur—each of them making Annie question her beliefs about life, death and the muted line in between. Can her friend really be reaching out to her with an after-death message? Or is grief loosening her grip on reality?
Heaven's Not a Place is a different kind of love story. And it also has tantalizing touches of the supernatural. There are many different kinds of love...but the one most compelling is the love that transcends space and time...
