About the Author:

—Through my eyes as a child, I knew that all children have the right to find that "magical place within themselves" - where they're able to develop their own unique gifts and talents. Children also need to be able to express their own voice within the family - and be heard.

 

—As an author of young people’s books - The stories I write emphasize the need for understanding and dignity for children of all ages and cultures. My books focus on strong family communication, as well as fulfilling expression. I write classic, timeless stories of hope, understanding, and dignity that warm the heart and soul.

 

I have written four Middle Grade novellas:

 

THE MAID’S DAUGHTER – A story of hope and inspiration about an African-American girl, Sally, and her loving mother.  Despite many odds, Sally is able to maintain her strength of character and attain her hopes and dreams.

Sydney Paige McCutcheon
About the Author:

Hi, my name is Sydney Paige McCutcheon, and I wrote the first draft of "Henry" the summer after I graduated high school. 

After years of edits and sending out queries letters, I chose to go the self-publishing route believing this is the way, at least for this first book, to go. I am excited to have it published and thankful God gave me connections who told me of LiberWriter when I wanted to get a Kindle version for my book (it is also available in Paperback on Amazon.com). 

The process was very easy and I would reccommend authors to use their website for creating ebooks!

The story for "Henry" I think has a different twist than common boy-meets-girl-type and I'm sure people like a change up in books from time to time. Readers meet Prue where her life changes, and follow her journey as she deals with the loss of her closest friend and sister, and also deals with her new roommate, Henry. 

Henry was a natural character to see, especially for such a complicated man. At least, Henry would say he's complicated and Prue would counterback that he's not as complicated as he likes to think - or as much as he likes to make other people think. And of course this automatic interaction between them makes me smile, remembering the days of writing their conversations. 

I love Prue. She's spunky, heartfelt, and says things others wish to say. 

I love Henry, too. He's fantastic, and dramatic, and has emotion even when being indifferent and dry. He says things without filter, too - good or bad. Together, these two can create quite a clash - but how will it end? The truth goes both ways, and for Henry and Prue, it could separate them forever. 

I hope this blurb has piqued your interest! "Henry" is a book full of joy, laughs, tears, and more.

Description:

After witnessing her sister's murder, Prue Collins is sent to a small town outside Astoria, Oregon, under the protection of the most unlikely guardian.

Rude and sarcastic, Ex-Officer Henry Clay wants nothing to do with his new roommate and doesn't mask any hard feelings, only secrets. His wheelchair gives Prue a glimpse of his tragic past and she can't fight curiosity as more clues come her way, opening her eyes to the true stranger she's been sent to live with—and possibly, meant to help save.

But the truth is like a loose string on an old shirt—you pull at it, and the entire fabric could come undone. As the trial looms closer, Prue will soon have to go back home. Will she leave well enough alone, or risk everything, even her own heart, to know the truth?

Michael Patrick Clark
About the 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.

 

Description:

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.

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.

About the Author:

I've had a lifetime of pleasure in writing short stories. I wrote The Geode Room so that I could bring some of my favorite characters to a setting that would allow me to more fully develop their personalities and understanding of life. 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.

Description:

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. Many readers of the first edition of this book have contacted me to share their satisfaction with having known my characters in this lengthy multigenerational perspective on their lives.

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.

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 West of Crete by Car or Motorcycle

  • Discover the history of Crete and a story of rebellion at the Arkadi Monastery

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 West 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.

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.

Jesse A. Mayfield
About the Author:

Hi, my name is Jesse A. Mayfield and I'm an actor, singer, writer and teacher. I've appeared on Broadway, on the Lincoln Center stage and at the Kennedy Center and in many concert venues around the world. As the former Artistic Director of the famed "Paul Robeson Theater" in New York, I produced and starred in many notable productions, among them, "A Raisin in the Sun," "Ceremonies in Dark Old Men" and "Of Mice and Men." I've spent much of the last decade touring in various stage productions. Always a New Yorker at heart, I presently reside in Los Angeles where I teach acting. I recently launched Greedy Reedy Productions to develop projects for television and film and my company, Lamarr Talent & Literary Management represents and guides the careers of young, aspiring entertainment professionals. 

My touching memoir titled "Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye...a coming of age story," chronicles my early years growing up in Brooklyn, New York during the Civil Rights era. It tells of me being one of the first African-Americans bused to a White school when New York City started busing for school integration. My years in predominately White, Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn were both character building and life changing and laid the foundation for my becoming the man I am today. This story is told through the eyes of a precocious and intelligent little boy and it's told with humor and love.

It is my sincerest hope that while reading this book you will get a strong sense of the love I had for my family, my community and the new world of friendships that embraced me. Being "away from my mother's watchful eye" offered me a new-found freedom but it also demanded that I grow up quickly, keep my wits about me and utilize everything I'd ever learned. This is a "nostalgic" and "feel good" story that will take you on a journey through a crazy time in our nation's history and make you laugh, cry, think and then laugh some more.

Enjoy!

Description:

"Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye...a coming of age story" is a memoir that tells about the author, Jesse A. Mayfield, growing up in Brooklyn, New York during the turbulent, dangerous and racially charged 1960s. When the New York City Board of Education implemented busing to further integrate New York public schools, Jesse was one of the first African-Americans bused from the inner-city to a White school in lily-White Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn in the Fall of 1965. Since all young Blacks were expected to be militant and "down with the revolution," Jesse was viewed as being a "traitor," "Uncle Tom" and "house nigger" for going to school with "Whitey." Surprisingly, he found peace, friendship and acceptance in the most unlikely of places; the White community he'd been warned to view with fear and distrust.

This entertaining, uplifting and inspiring story will take you on a magical and nostalgic journey to an exciting time gone by and you'll relive history as you revisit President Kennedy's election and assassination, the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, President Lyndon B. Johnson, the Vietnam War and the healing effects of the Beatles' music on a post-assassination America.

Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye is a not the usual unfortunate and sad story about busing that we've all heard but instead, it's an inspiring story of one boys journey as he navigates between two distinct worlds forging friendships, excelling and forming a unique perception of the world. As one reviewer so aptly put it, "Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye is the epitome of all coming of age stories."

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.

Have you ever had a dream where you could not move, get away, stay safe, think clearly? Sure you have. Have you experienced any of those things in reality central? Have you ever been drawn towards a sixteen foot monster covered in barnacles and seaweed who is beckoning to you to come closer as it sounds its gong powered by the scend of the sea? Well, I grew up on the Jersey Shore and faced that monster off the mouth of Shark River between Avon-By-The-Sea and Belmar NJ numerous times. It is the feeling of quiet desperation with a musketeer flair that I like to write about from the the foggy mists of New England to the sun bleached shores of Florida. I now have time to write now about these things. Book 2, "SWIRLS AND SHADOWS," A Simon O'Rourke Adventure, is under construction and new challenges will abound for our intrepid characters and, yes, the evildoers as well. Book 1, "Thirteen Pieces" is available in Kindle format NOW on Amazon. Great Summer reading awaits YOU !!!

Description:

This is a tale about my fictional hero and probably my alter ego all rolled into one, Simon O'Rourke and his friends and enemies. Simon is experiencing from time to time some rather strange, some would say otherworldly, happenings that really can't be explained away very easily, at least not in a way that would let you sleep better at night. Don't worry, Simon is as baffled as everybody else, except probably Zed. Who is Zed? That is, Indeed, a worthy question. This tale is centered in New England but meanders back to Florida with a side trip to a Cuban dungeon and is very suitable to curl up with on a rainy day or a day when you want a respite from the terrible tube.

Join Simon who is doing his best to figure things out along with you.......

About the Author:

I was 29 years old and the mother of three small children when my husband, a Navy fighter pilot, was killed in combat.  I was totally unprepared to be a widow and to offer my  fatherless children the support they needed. I tried! Oh, how hard I tried! But there were no books or support groups or guidance for a grieving young mother at that time.. 

 My son Barty was seven. By his early teen years, he was acting out in very self-destrictive ways. A psychiatrist told me, "Your son is emotionally stuck at the age of seven--the age he was when his father died-- and unless you  get help now he will grow up but stay 'stuck' emotionally. It will hamper his relationships and work career."  No parent wants to hear those words.  MY ANGRY SON shares with readers how we got help.

For most of my adult life, I have been a professaional writer and all my best writing appears in the form of stories taken from my own life. I deeply believe that in sharing our storiees we not only help others, we find a higher meaning for ourselves, even in the face of  tragedy. 

You will find my stories in many major women's magazines and in Readers Digest, as well as in nine  published books and several anthologies, including four Chicken Soup of the Soul books.I have won awards for my writing, but the reponses I savor are those from readers who say "Thank you. Your story helped me  through a difficult time in my own life.".

 

 

 

 

Description:

 

For many years, readers have encouraged me to reprint my book, MY ANGRY SON, our family’s true story which first appeared as a book-length feature in Readers Digest magazine,  then became a hard back book, a soft cover book, and was optioned for a CBS-movie. 

 

MY ANGRY SON is now available as a Kindle book. I hope it will offer help and encouragement to parents and--yes--to sons and daughters as well. Click here. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=My+Angry+Son+by+Barbara+Bartocci

Terry Nelson
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.

Description:

The tower is an incredibly mammoth undertaking involving a remarkable 

coalition of private investors and governments. Part space elevator, 

part launching pad, the tower is placed on top of Mount Everest for 

several reasons: the mountain is one of the tallest peaks in the 

world, providing a 29,000 foot platform from which to work. It is the 

most famous peak in the world, making it a strategic marketing tool 

for attracting both investors and customers. Cities are actually 

built within the mountain to help finance the project. As the story 

unfolds, the unscrupulous nature of some men is quickly revealed, 

coupled with a blatant disregard for a global treasure. Amazing feats 

of technology are accomplished which boggle both the mind and 

imagination. Loyalties come and go, the end justifies the means, and 

the law of unintended consequences always seems to have the final say.

Janae B. Weinhold, Ph.D.
About the Author:

 

Janae Weinhold grew up on a farm in the Midwest, surrounded by her father's predatory friends. She learned early on about con artists and sociopaths, as they were everywhere. Even her father. At the time, it all seemed "normal." Only later did she see recognize that they run the world.

It took her many years of being targeted by con artists before she recognized how they trapped people into doing things. Not only were these predators able to persuade people to do things that were self-defeating, but also things they didn't believe in.

Rather than being a victim, Janae decided to "get smart." Her Con Job series of books are the outcome of her journey to break free of con artists, sociopaths and predators. She shares many of her experiences in this series of books.

Janae had a doctorate in Planetary Psychology, is a former university professor and a licensed professional counselor. She has also lived and worked out of the country for extended periods of time, and credits these “outside the box” experiences with helping her develop a global and systemic perspective in her professional work. 

She has co-authored four print books on relationships and conflict resolution with her husband, Barry, that  grew out their “relationship laboratory.” They live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.

Description:

 

Are you softhearted, caring and kind?

Do you love kids & animals?

Does violence turn you off?

Do you attract people who steal your heart or ideas and use you?

Have you tried to fix broken people by showering them with your love?

If any of these things describe you, then this book is for you.

It was written for nice people who get ripped off.

It shows you how to break free of con artists, sociopaths and other kinds of “life-takers” who see your “life-giving” as a weakness and you as an ideal “mark.”

In this mind-stretching book, Janae shares stories of her encounters with con artists, sociopaths and predators. She describes how to spot these people and then to break free from their influence.

This ruthless Warrior for Truth and Seeker of the Shadow talks about her journey to know what is real and what is illusion. Eventually she decided to “get smart” rather than be a victim. This helped free her from the tangled web of family secrets and lies that she grew up with.
