Apostolis Heretis-Hadoulis, Anastasios Hadoulis and Katia Luz
About the Author:

Apostolis Heretis-Hadoulis is an Australian-born Greek with heritage from Crete and Kos. He loves music, playing the bass guitar, and restoring motorcycles. He loves travelling, exploring Cretan history, and Greek ancient history. Apostoli shares his Cretan history, music and dancing on the ‘We Love Crete’ website and has helped to write the Trip Ideas books for touring by car or motorcycle in Crete, with his brother, Anastasios.

Anastasios Hadoulis is an Australian-born Greek with heritage from Crete and Kos. He loves travelling and has contributed to many travel pages about the Greek Islands on We Love Crete. His love of music expresses itself in many forms, metal, rock, flamenco and Cretan traditional music, he plays guitar and the Cretan mandóla. His studies and work as an eco-tour guide support his appreciation of the importance of authentic, local tourism and that is why he is passionate about sharing the real Crete in the Trip Ideas books and on his website ‘We Love Crete’, with his brother, Apostolis.

Katia Luz - a traveller since a young age, her love of Crete, as well as a passion to share the unique culture, from such a warm-hearted people and the rugged, rough and fiercely independent character of the land itself, drew her to write the ‘We Love Crete’ website and the Trip Ideas books with her co-authors, Apostolis and Anastasios.

 

Description:

Crete Greece - Trip ideas - Five Days in the East of Crete by Car or Motorcycle

Independent Travel - taking some time and a car will mean you can explore the ruggedly beautiful interior of the island of Crete as well as visit some exquisite beaches.

Visit Crete - take a back roads journey through the island. This book helps you discover the real Crete - archaeological sites, wine tastings, tavernas, hidden valleys and other gems in the east of Crete. Get behind the scenes.

Anastasi, Apostoli and Katia of We Love Crete have put together their favourite places in the east of the island to give you a varied and interesting itinerary to follow. Or adapt for yourself.

Inside

  • Learn the secrets of the Minoans at the Knossos Palace
  • Drive through the country, visit wineries, take in the views of the Dikti Mountains, and visit the local tavernas
  • Get off the beaten track in the Lasithi Plateau and experience Psychro Cave
  • Have easy access to the route with our live-link map and clickable website addresses
  • Unravel the mystery of the ruins at Spinalonga
  • Discover the Ha Gorge or Zakros Gorge and the only palm forest in Europe
  • Packed with tips for accommodation that will save you Euros and add enjoyment to your travels

Everyone knows Crete as a beach destination, and that an average of 300 days of sunshine a year mean more chances of bliss on the sand. But as an independent visitor, who wants to do more than just lie on the beach, it can be difficult to plan a great route without knowledge of the island.

First, there's the language barrier, which can make it difficult to ask directions on back roads, how do you know what sights and villages you should be looking for? And, what is the difference between a Minoan, a Cretan and a Chaniot?

With the Five Days in the East of Crete, you won't miss the any of the historic sites, interesting towns and beautiful beaches. This route will show you the wine and food in Crete, for everyday eating and everyday pleasure. The stunning mountains and valleys of Crete will be at your fingertips.

Trip Ideas - A Route Behind the Scenes

  • Experience mountain hospitality and local food in Tzermiado
  • Enjoy the views, nature and green heart of the Lasithi Plateau
  • Use our accommodation tips in Elounda
  • Relish in the stylish lakeside boulevard and atmosphere of Agios Nikolaos
  • See the inland route to Kato Zakros and the historic Gorge of the Dead
  • Rugged Gorges! Unexplored mountains and gorges of the east of Crete
  • Best of all, enjoy the luxurious and unusual palm beach of Vai

eBook Features

  • We've suggested an itinerary, and given accommodation suggestions, different options for various routes along the way, and variations. There are plenty of information links within the book
  • Five days is not a lot of time to spend in Crete. Ideally you need a lot longer. With this guide, you will be able to make the most of your time in Crete
  • With the live-link map, you'll be able to link directly to the map from the eBook and use the map to plan your days and plot your routes in Crete
  • Save money by knowing your plans in advance and pre-booking your accommodation
  • The guide includes Greek names in Greek writing for easy recognition of road signs
  • Take less time reading the map and more time chatting to the locals
  • Ease the worry of ‘where will we sleep tonight?’ and enjoy more time relaxing at the taverna
  • Have the suggested itinerary for the west of Crete and maps with you in one handy package

What This Book Is Not

This book is not a fully detailed Crete travel guide - this does not have detailed instructions “Turn left, turn right, take the second road after the goat shed”. 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.

Barbara G Louise
About the Author:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It isn’t nice to block the doorway,

It isn’t nice to go to jail.

There are nicer ways to do it

But the nice ways always fail.

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

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

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

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

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

Description:

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

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

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

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

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

Fergus Dignan
About the Author:

I am a general practitioner and have had an interest in genetics most of my working life (although I am not directly involved in the subject). I have followed developments in the subject over the years. Like most people, I suppose, I started thinking about my mortality when I hit my forties, and came to the conclusion that ageing is not purely a matter of wear and tear. I thought it very likely that somewhere in the human genome there is a gene or genes that influence ageing. Hence the book! 

Description:

The book is 'faction' i.e the plot is a work of fiction, but the substance of the novel is about genetics. I have researched the subject and taken care to get the facts right. I believe that it is therefore all accurate apart from the 'ageing gene' which is my speculation.

For anyone who might be interested in genetics but knows little about it, I believe this novel to be an interesting and stimulating introduction to the subject.

Christopher Meeks
About the Author:

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.

Description:

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."

Grace Frame
About the Author:

As a Feminist, I joined the Women's Movement in 1968.  Feminism is about how great it is to be a woman -- the Women's Movement addresses the many difficulties women cope with, including the nasty or non-use of the term Feminist until about three years ago.  My writing extends from personal study in Mythology, Archaeology and Anthropology with a final commitment to Anthroapology,  I am a cartoonist as well as a researcher and writer.  The cover of Learning By Heart is my original drawing and I would like to see it replicated because mothers and daughters need one another. This is my sixth e-book with the excellent assistance of LiberWriter.

Description:

LEARNING BY HEART, ​​COURAGEOUS GROWTH, GYNOCENTRIC EDUCATION is Factuality Fiction about the actual or psychological and cultural loss of daughters and it is about a returning.  The severance of the matrilineal bloodline of daughters and sons through the barbarian imposition of sons-in-law has been told more times than mother-in-law jokes.  I try to write Women's Fiction believing that emotion is women's preferred action -- and a relevant basis for action.  The emotional level is dramatized from an internal viewpoint; in other words, from the way women act OUT their feelings.

LEARNING BY HEART is also Historical Factuality Fiction that offers applicable heritage for modern families.  The story conforms to the known facts and assumed spirit of the historic period  (600 BCE), which was a climactic shift from gynocentric culture to patriarchal  conquest society -- to the politics and economics of city states, finally from trading empires to warring empires; and from visionary education to authoritative, even monolithic, disciplines; from ecstatic nature worship to the extremes of sexual prudery and eroticism.  The story centers on a single woman whose life and personality reflect these contrasts; however the many characters span generations and ethnicisities.

After the fall of Sikah-hara, Naqia, a lady of the royal harem flees to the school where she was briefly educated before her marriage -- to the famous school of the sibyls (Western Erythraea) said to have existed in the Ocean Stream, possibly on one of the Canary Islands.  Naqia has lost everything in the turmoil following the collapse of the most powerful Hittite empire.  Of her family, only a daughter may survive as a captive but, so pitiable is that fate, no mother could wish it.

Realizing her ownly wealth is her learning, Naqia plans to teach eme-Sal, the women's literary language (known to have evolved over the course of thousands of years in the harems of the east -- the gynocratic Womens Courts).  Naqia vows that her mind will be a tool not a torment, but from the day of her arrival at the school, memories assail her.  While Naqia tries to forget the past, the sibyls recognize her as a woman of the future; she is a lost daughter of Demeter carried off to Hades, and the sibyls believe she can return.  Others conclude that Naqia doesn't belong at the school.  She offends her oldest friend and clashes with the red bodu, a dominant student.

Yet in coming to the sibylline school on the volcanic island of Erythraea, Naqia and her seven-year-old servant girl, Tayet, have travelled to the home of the Nine Muses whose mother is Memory.  Amused and bemused among an international assembly of teachers and students, woman and girl learn by heart through the diverse talents of the muses to design the mind as a temple with the heart as an altar where a choice of memories are dedicated with which to grow up courageously and to grow old courageously.

About the Author:

"Faithful Journey" attempts to reflect the lives and times of Paul, Peter and other well-known apostles in the spread of the gospel. Researching and writing the novel was a personal journey of faith, in helping me better understand the early church and to draw nearer to God and his grace, mercy and love. My hope is that the book will encourage you to study the Bible and it will enrich your own faith in Christ.

Description:

"Faithful Journey" is a unique historical novel based on the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament of the Bible. The novel hews closely to Luke's account and adds touches of fiction to help you meet the flesh-and-blood people who carried the good news of Christ from Jerusalem to Rome in the first century.  "Faithful Journey" is a modern portrait of the lives and times of people who played roles in this remarkable New Testament odyssey.

About the Author:

This book extends from my love from and learning from other animals.  I believe other species often understand us better than we can understand them.-- perhaps because we fail to recognize our instincts by giving our instincts a lot of other names and diagnoses.  

I am a cartoonist as well as a writer and researcher.  This is my seventh book with the excellent assistance of Liberwriter.  The cover is one of a series of cartoons ("I know -- but he may grow up to do something wonderful") inspired by a caged gorilla in "a squalid little slum" of a city zoo.  There were changes and improvements made... BUT ...

 

Description:

Declaring "Only lovers survive; only lovers can," beautiful, compassionate Sorrel Starling gets a job equal to her ego.  She is chosen to be the second missionary sent to convert the primitive you-mens of the New World.  Inspired by the creed of Aphrotite and bearing a message of love for all creation and a governing Declaration of Interdependence, Sorrel lands on Megaton Island, also known as the Melting Pot, on a continent assumed to be recently erupted.  The new missionary forgives all -- youman frailty, youman chicany, youman youbris -- and practically invents the science of AnthroApology.

From the Pebblestons, near relatives of the Rockefellas, through Ken Pethem, Scopes Case and Polly Lovejoy, this Equal Animal Rights, romantic adventure story is a satiric portrayal of prejudice intending to test youmane conceits with mind twists of righteousness.

Jon Petruschke
About the Author:

Jon Petruschke was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He holds a BA in psychology from the Pennsylvania State University and an MSS from Bryn Mawr College's Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. Upon the completion of his graduate studies, Petruschke relocated to Portland, Maine, with his wife and two cats. Since 2002, the four of them have lived happily in the cozy, vibrant neighborhood of Munjoy Hill. Shortly after the move, Petruschke founded a Portland-based writing group that is now in its twelfth year.

His short fiction has been published in the anthologies Philly Fiction and Philly Fiction 2. In her Philadelphia Inquirer review, Susan Balee called Petruschke's story "Bragging About Annie," which appeared in Philly Fiction, a "sweet and funny tale...a wonderful story--my favorite of the lot." Petruschke's poetry has been published in such journals as Poetic Hours; Paper Wasp; Children, Churches and Daddies; 3 Cup Morning; Open Minds Quarterly; Waterways: Poetry in the Mainstream; and the anthology In Our Own Words: Generation X Poetry.

While at work on his first novel, Petruschke began a blog, Basho and Jung. The blog's subject is dream haiku: short poetry inspired by and based on the content of his nightly dreams. Initially, it was a practice to cleanse his writing mind of the long stretches of prose in his novel; however, playing with his dreams inside of a tiny poetic form lead to the development of Petruschke's first book: a collection of poetry entitled Dream Haiku: Poems from Nights and Naps. Dream Haiku was recently self-published and is available on Amazon.

When not writing, Petruschke is a clinical social worker who supervises a team that assists and supports adults with severe mental illness in the Portland community.

Description:

Dream Haiku: Poems from Nights and Naps is a selection of the author’s honest, odd, and irreverent verse. Culled from the journeys that sleep gifts us, these poems are a range of otherworldly moments. Some impossibly surreal. Others comfortingly familiar. And many of them somewhere, somehow, true -- in our whimsies, our ideals, our desires. The haiku form, and its moments of contemplation and surprise, are a perfect fit for the dream world’s startling images, pieces of conversation, and emotional residues. These are the experiences we so often forget and dismiss. Yet every night, we return to them.

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.

About the Author:

Song of the Canyon Kid is my second novel and my first full-blown comedy. My previous works were the road rage novel Red Asphalt, a true travel tale called Please Hold Thumbs and my movie memoir In the Dark.

This one is a total cartoon. The main character is a singing cowboy. What is the last book you hummed? The characters are intentionally over-the-top and the entire tone is a sweet parody, an homage to the B-movies westerns of yesteryear. And in full disclosure, it's also a novelization. I based this novel on my comic melodramatic play entitled Song of the Lone Prairie or Poem on the Range. Prairie debuted in 1987 at the late, great Pollardville Palace Showboat Theater in Stockton, California, a production I also directed.

Pollardville was a magical place. We had the theater  that specialized in melodrama and vaudeville. On the same property was a western ghost town that housed movie sets from the William Wyler film The Big Country. This is where we'd get paid to play cowboy on the weekends, duties that included robbing the train, engaging in fisticuffs and shooting it out with fellow gunslingers at High Noon. Pollardville was the birthplace of The Canyon Kid.

I realize the stigma of a novelization, but I felt creatively stagnated and needed an writing exercise to get myself in gear. Digging through my old writings, I came across his script for Lone Prairie. a melodrama I consider to be the culmination of everythin I learned at Pollardville. Adapting it into novel form came fairly easy, fleshing ot the characters and transposing the stage direction into prose. Soon, it took on a life of its own and I was hooked.

I loved revisiting my old characters like Nastassia Kinky and her brother Two Gun Boris, the fastest gun this side of the Ukraine. I also made The Kid's horse, Thunder, more of a supporting character. And the love story is something I never I thought I was capable of pulling off, but I feel like I did.

Overall I had a blast with this, the most fun I've had with a project since I wrote the original back in the '80's. Song of the Canyon Kid has given me back the joy of writing. By returning to my roots, I found that in order to move forward, sometimes you can go home home again.

Description:

Be it ever so hostile, there's no place like home.

When a straight-shooting, guitar-strumming singing cowboy known as The Canyon Kid returns to Dirt Clod, Missouri, he finds his hometown in ruins due to the machinations of a corrupt "hanging judge" named Basil Kadaver. With the help of his co-horts, a slinky seductress named Nastassia Kinky, owner of The Golden Goulash Saloon, and her brother, Two Gun Boris, the Judge has the town in his tyrannical grip and is beginning to squeeze. To make matters worse for The Kid, he also discovers that his childhood sweetheart, Darla Darling, is engaged to his sworn enemy, a desperado nicknamed "The Bushwhacker" who is now the town sheriff. How is The Canyon Kid going to save the day, let alone croon a few tunes, with a noose around his neck?

Song of the Canyon Kid is a wild and wooly western comedy romance that'll put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. It may even make you say "Yee-haw!"

About the Author:

Paul Murphy is a retired educator. The father of three grown children he recently moved to Southport with his wife, Shirley.

He graduated from The Ohio State University in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. He then obtained his Masters in Education from Bowling Green State University in 1970.

Paul possesses more than thirty years experience in public education as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal, culminating with sixteen years as superintendent of schools in several communities.

He is a twenty-five year member of Rotary International. Paul has served in various capacities in two Lutheran churches. His love of Jesus prompted his writing The 13th Apostle and its sequel, Angel Assignment: The White House.

Description:

An accidental stumble by a Secret Service agent leaves the country’s leaders exposed for a split second. A shot rings out: an instant later, the Vice President of the United States is dead, and the First Lady is mysteriously wounded. While a shaken President sits beside his injured wife considering resignation, the fiend behind the assassination attempt ramps up a smear campaign calculated to initiate impeachment, and orders his henchmen to scare off—kill, if necessary—a troublesome reporter determined to report only the facts. Still not satisfied, the evil-doer funds Al-Qaeda in a conspiracy to bring both America and its President to their knees. The terrorist attacks are executed with near-perfect precision: as an airplane spews a deadly new strain of anthrax over a crowd of over 100,000 unsuspecting football fans, Al-Qaeda members gun down random individuals at other nationally recognized gridiron venues.

            The enemy’s scheme is working: the President trusts no one except family and Secret Service agents. As rumors and death swirl about the nation’s leader, the pressure to apprehend the perpetrators of these heinous crimes and name a new vice-president becomes almost unbearable. Prayer brings the President little comfort, for his faith has waned over the years, and he no longer believes in his religious heritage. As he flies off to a secret retreat, the President recalls his father’s and grandfather’s tales of “the thirteenth apostle” and the letters Gamaliel supposedly wrote, and rejects them once again as make-believe. But God has a revelation in store for him, and what he learns will be instrumental in his fight against his evil adversary.

            “Paul Murphy is a wonderful story teller. His work in Angel Assignment: The White House grabs you and keeps you until the very end. This is not just a page turner…it’s a page burner. Start it today and you are likely to be up all night and you will be glad for the experience.” Dr. Mark Cress, Founder, Corporate Chaplains of America, Inc.

Finally, a suspense thriller the whole family can enjoy and talk about. A book for all ages, Angel Assignment: The White House, is a modern day novel featuring the president as the good guy, and a bunch of bad guys to fill out the roster. A good story to talk about with family and students. A great, what if. Susan Warren Books 'n Stuff
