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 the 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.  Often the pain comes from a deeper source, such as family stories, fear over world events, personal trauma, unforgiveness and a host of negative emotions.

Carol has been doing hands on work with clients for over 20 years and became a licensed massage therapist in 2006 with 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 book is a troubleshooting guide to the body, specifically the body's pain.

It won't make you a doctor or therapist over night, but it will teach you a little about how the body perceives pain.  There are many sources of pain, not all of them physical.  We will look at how the mind and body are closely related and how one affects the other.  We'll also look at how to affect one by using the other.

This is a book about "every day" pain, not a medical journal or self-diagnostic tool.  It is easy to read, with a clear and light style that will help you discover some of the less obvious sources of pain in your daily life.

Nick Stephenson
About the Author:

Nick Stephenson was born and raised in Cambridgeshire, England and will now refer to himself in the first person. My approach to writing is to hit hard, hit fast, and leave as few spelling errors as possible. I write thrillers, suspense novels, and the occasional witty postcard, all of which are designed to get your pulse pounding. Don't let my headshot fool you - I'm actually full colour, on most days.

My books are a mixture of mystery, action, and humour. If you're looking for a good place to start, take a look at my Leopold Blake series of thrillers, available now.

Description:

 

Swift. Silent. Deadly.

Leopold Blake, expert criminology consultant for the FBI, had his weekend all planned out - and it didn't involve dealing with a murdered senator, a high-profile kidnapping, and at least three near-death experiences. Three politicians have been murdered in as many weeks, all expertly dispatched, and only Leopold can get to the bottom of it. Unfortunately, as all hell breaks loose on the streets of New York City, he soon finds himself the next target of a powerful enemy who wants him silenced. Permanently.

Against the backdrop of political corruption and murder, Leopold and his team must fight for their lives to uncover the truth before it's too late. Panic is the first novel in the Leopold Blake series of thrillers.
 
 

Editorial Reviews

Review

 
 
 
"Panic had me on the edge of my seat the whole time with its fast pace and nonstop action. A real page-turner, it leaps from crisis to crisis and never slows down, twisting all the way to its gripping conclusion." - David VanDyke, author of The Eden Plague. 

 
"Buckle up... With precise blows, Nick Stephenson creates fight scenes that had me clenching my jaw with tension. The twists and turns kept me guessing - the pace of the story cracked along toward an exciting finish." - Craig McGray, author of The Somnibus, Madeline, and This Little Piggy.
 

From the Author

This book hits hard, hits fast, and keeps your pulse pounding until the very end. A thrilling mix of action, humor, and mystery, the Leopold Blake series is Sherlock meets Die Hard - an explosive mix that fans of Lee Child, Dan Brown, and James Patterson will love.

Jo Kenworthy
About the Author:
I have long wished to see my words in print but like most career women who are also wives and mothers I have had to wait for the right time which I hope is now.
I love the written word and honestly believe that I can use that to convey my thoughts to the reader.
My working life in the health service and education has given me a very intensive insight into human nature, both tragic and comic. My interest in modern history leans my attitudes towards social comment rather than sensationalism.  
I would like to think that these attributes are recognisable in my work and even more so I would like my readers to appreciate those points of view
 
Description:
My tale of Harry Armitage and the highs and lows of his life will be easily recognisable to many people whose parents and grandparents grew up in the era between the two world wars in Northern England.  Perhaps the suspension of disbelief will be tested in that very few people of those times escaped from their life style.
There are still many men living who, as boys grew up with the words “when he starts work” ringing in their ears.
As for their women folk, love and affection never took pride of place against the threat of a lost pay packet.
Harry`s story does not end with Harry`s Prospects- his life and that of his son will still interweave in the sequel which will follow.
If you like a tale well told with characters you can believe in, try this one

Description:

An affair ends Hoil Mince's six-year marriage and produces a child. The resulting divorce leads Hoil to start a new, highly dysfunctional family with his mistress. The violence that defines Hoil's relationship with his second wife, Riana, stems from his family history and his obsession with his old life; it resurrects old haunts and serves as the root of his son's suffering. Ansar's response to his parents' battles becomes self-destructive and reaches a boiling point as he nears his nineteenth birthday. For some members of this volatile family, liberation from the pain of lost and unrequited love will come only in death.

About the Author:
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

About the Author:

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.......

"Then from the lonely distance comes a sad and ghostly sound; 'Tis tie Shadow Phantom that is calling, like the baying of a hound........."

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.

Description:

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

Celeste White
About the Author:

 

As someone with a background in both science and the arts, the challenge of blending and harmonizing them has always appealed to me. I studied molecular biology and epigenetics at the University of Massaschusetts, Amherst, where I obtained a Master’s degree; this gave me the background for my neurobiologist protagonist in The Last Good Fairy. Although there is no autobiographical basis to this novel, like the artist in the book, I create and sell found object art, a pursuit I’ve enjoyed for most of my adult life.

I’ve written my entire life, starting in second grade; I studied Creative Writing at Wellesley College, where I graduated with a double major in English Literature and Biology. My children’s book, The Legend of the Flying Hotdog, a fable about the power of kindness, was published by Green Tiger Press and optioned for film. I’m drawn to fairy tales for their deep roots in the human psyche, their allegorical wisdom, and the enchantment these tales have always brought me. 

Description:

 

Sachi, a brilliant young neurobiologist living and working in San Diego, has constructed her life as a carefully controlled experiment. Her intention is to hold all variables constant, thinking this will protect her from suffering and loss. But when a devastating event shatters her world, she must reconstruct her entire approach to living. An encounter with a mysterious, intriguing artist leads her down an unconventional path to healing and introduces her to the possibility of magic co-existing with the laws of science. And along the way, she discovers both her humanity and her spirit.

Robert Deason
About the Author:

When the author, Robert Deason was a young child, two older boys tied him up by his feet and left him hanging alone, hidden inside a building. That memorable incident makes its way in an altered form into Super Shy. The author's situation isn't unique. Most kids experience either teasing, bullying, or being left out, especially during the junior high years. The author made it through junior high a long time ago, but watching his own children's struggles as pre-teens/young teenagers, it seems not much has changed.  It's a time of great turmoil. Imagine going through it while carrying the secret of a super power, a power that could be your salvation or your downfall.

You won't feel sorry for Edelweiss and her friends. You'll be rooting for them to find their way, because you'll see yourself and those you love in their struggles. Super Shy is an adventure, it's a coming-of-age story, and a fantasy grounded in the hard realities of being a kid.

Description:

Edelweiss Featherwhite lhides behind her shyness to cope with the bullies who tease and hurt her in junior high school. During Science Club, an accident changes Edelweiss from a wallflower into a girl who can walk through walls What do you do with a weird power like that? Well, when two other eighth grade outsiders get secret super powers, too, Edelweiss teams up with them to get back at the kids making them miserable.

Revenge doesn't taste so sweet, though, once Edelweiss falls for the most popular boy in school, nor when she and her classmates are forced into an unexpected fight for their lives. Unless Edelweiss and her partners overcome their own weaknesses and embrace what truly makes a hero, no kids will survive to see graduation day.

Anyone who has attended school, been bullied, or possesses a secret power will relate to this fanciful tale of overcoming jealousy, betrayal, doubt and the desperate need to fit in.

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.

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.

About the Author:
I was a "struggling" actor in Los Angles for many years, so I know how to depict character, conflict and drama to the max. What I hold highest in writing--even above plot, character, and so on--is telling a great story! A story that makes you cry, or makes you laugh, or just plain makes you say: "That was one good read!"
Description:
This book is three "spooky" tales. The first one is of a burned-out, old, police detective who almost becomes a victim himself of a demon that whispers into its victim's ear of his/her innermost fears. The second story is of a second virgin birth in our time. Jesus bowed down to Satan the first time, and that changed our whole world. The world is ruled by Satan, and God gives man a chance with this new Mary. This story is full of giants, sword fights and man's salvation. The final story is a comedy of a very inept, wannbe private eye who while trying to save a girl's life, becomes involved with the Mafia, vampires and keeps peeing in his pants when scared--which is oftened.
