A puzzling series of events. A strange scent. A unique gift. Dr Neroli Sonnclere knows when she smells a rat—and not just literally.

Dr Sonnclere is an olfactory scientist born with an extra keen sense of smell. She has the unique ability to discern odours undetected by ordinary human beings. For her, smell tells a story. It holds valuable clues that enable her to understand people, situations and places. If there’s anyone who can figure out the strange phenomenon, she can. Together with DI McClellan, who is sceptical at best, Dr Sonnclere uses her scientific knowledge and expert nose to sniff out the source of the problem. The trail leads to a villain with skills to match hers and who is determined to cause havoc in London. Why? More importantly, can they stop him? In this mystery thriller full of twists and turns, the investigation takes them around the chaotic, not to mention smelly, streets of London.

About the Author:

Tina is an early school leaver who used to be thrown out of class for laughing too much. She's an unschooler at heart and an ungraduate who made her own education in life, she thanks everyone she's ever met, they all taught her something. She landed on Earth in Karlskoga, Sweden, 1969 and has tried to adjust ever since. Tina's writing takes her off the beaten track and the best writing advice she ever got was, write what you want to find out more about. She lives in Dublin, Ireland with her non-traditional family.

This story is rewritten more times than Tina can remember, it’s her learning to write in English story and she’s immensely proud for not giving up, but she has given in to the fact that she does tell a story differently.  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.

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.

John Ostergren
About the Author:

I have always loved the written word, from when I was a young lad reading "Mr. Popper's Penguins" to a slightly older lad who read Raymond Chandler and John Cheever to the middle-aged dude I am now, reading history by the likes of Doris Kearns Goodwin. Christmas has also always been a big deal. For as long as I can remember, back in time to my youth in Chicago, this was always a special time of the year for my family and me. Another things is, everyone in my family, including and especially, my wife, has, to one degree or another, a slightly off way of looking at the world. Therefore, writing humorous stories about Santa seemed like a natural thing to do.

Description:

"Twisted Tinsel" is a collection of four short stories, all about the goings on of Santa Claus, his reindeer, and the elves who work at the North Pole. It shows all of these things in a light different from what you may be used to. This Santa enjoys adult beverages, as do some of his reindeer, and don't get me started on the elves. They work hard so they're entitled to the occasional tipple as well. Santa gets into all sorts of adventures: He travels through time with Blitzen and meets Abraham Lincoln; he tries to get out of the business but just gets sucked back in, just in time to defeat an evil efficiency expert and deliver the toys on Christmas Eve; he solves the "mystery" of a "missing" reindeer; he gets stressed but finds peace through meditation and the wisdom of a ghost-like reindeer. You may not be able to read these tales to your young children, but there's nothing here that would embarrass your grandma to read. They are simply Christmas stories told from a slightly skewed perspective.

About the Author:

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.

Description:

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.

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

  • Unravel the mystery of the ruins at Spinalonga
  • Discover the Ha Gorge or Zakros Gorge and the only palm forest in Europe

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.

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.

Ela, come, Kriti and her charms await.

About the Author:

     In the first grade, learning The Pledge of Allegience, I asked: "What's a Republic?" In hindsight my Teacher took me to a map and explained a confederation of states, not a republic.. However, the real answer to my question took twenty six years to answer. Six of those twenty six years were spent going from library to library; huddled over age old books, amidst dusty Winter nights, and humid New England days. As I was able to read at an Adult level in the First Grade; I remember; with such joy;finding "A Biography of Deborah Sampson." The joy was due to that was the first Adult book I ever read. She among many others had impersonated a male so she could fight in the Revoltuion. This was an ancient European tradition, (without the masquerade).

      Years passed, as I traversed America, France, and India; and somewhat settled down; got married and had a beautiful Daughter. For my Daughter's sake, I began college a bit late at twenty eight years of age. So with a two month old infant I arrived at Mount Ida College, enrolled, and soon began realizing; I had brought a Classcial education with me. By the time I graduated with honors, (Who's Who and an Award in Scholarship), I was headed to Harvard. I believed this to be my last summer working in mental health. Unfortunately, in protecting a female patient from harm; I was struck down; which resulted in a spinal injury that lasted many years. I then arrived at law school; earning the nickname, "The Prosecutor," (one I was never comfortable with, but Student Loans as they are, were too large an obstacle to overcome and continue.

      However I did go on to earn my Ph.D. in Early American and European history. I went on to teach Liberal Studies and was praised for my Socratic Method. Although my favorite course to teach was Western Civilization, I taught many others: Western Civilization, Philosophy, Ethics, Humanities, American History, Political Science, Introduction to Anthropology, Introduction to Sociology, Native American Studies, and  Twentieth Century History. I also developed abridged critical thinking and mapping as an introduction to all classes. This provided tangible results for measuring learning. Critical thinking essays were requisites for exams, rather than true or false, questions, and the like.

     When I wasn't teaching I remained active working in Human Services, as a Consultant for private families. Presently I reside in New England and am retired.

Description:

     What is virtue, as opposed to a virtue? Corruption for example, is a word often used, in accusing someone of not being true; but true to what? One needs to grasp principle as a basic truth; on which all other truths rest, before corruption can be applied. Once the truth is identified, it can be understood that the accused, has fallen away from and is not being true to principle Can it be a disagreement? Certainly it can. However, just because one believes something to be true, doesn't necessarily make it knowledge, it makes it true belief. Subsequently, corruption rolls off the tongue, as easy as virtue or corruption.

     In western civilization; from Athens to America, even as today worldwide, is another word used; Republic. It has been used so often, to identify so many Countries, that Republic has and is, misconstrued with Democracy. Which is unfortunate.

     Polity for example, is how societies organize into governing bodies. America's polity, is a bicameral system, having two legislative houses, voting on the passing of laws. This is neither a Democracy as America's founders understood it; and neither is it a Republic. For Republic is not a polity; but it is and has always been the remedy for political evils, from Athens to America. Thus, a Republic is a why, rather than a what. For example: America's Founder's without question, regarded America; especially after the Constitutional  Convention of 1788, that America was to be a Representative Republic. So what happened?

     Through the ages of western civilization, from Athens to America, as all republics arose to confront political evils; regardless of their new found polity; there has been a promise. A promise of virtue and the threat of corruption.

     America's Founders knew this well. From a Classical Education, of a centuries old tradition, to Religion, and active citizenship, which all held that independent thought and action, was the highest virtue. Where ethics, morality, and a new commercial age; had the potential to unite Humankind; and free their political economy, from the misery of the British political economy.

    The transition, of this heritage,—cultural, political, social, religious, and economic— that ultimately brought revolution and self-realization, was sprung from an intellectual and spiritually faithful civilization. Colonial, European, and classical history was America's history, in the sense that, the social evolution, and events from the Renaissance, led the revolutionary generation to make a break from the past. Not a divorce from the past; just a break; and to begin anew.  

     The History of Virtue and Corruption tells the story of the tens of thousands of Western Europeans who ventured to the North American British colonies during the seventeenth and eighteenth-centuries. What were their customs of Law and education; religious, philosophical, or political thought?

     The Founders’ ideas about the duty and obligation of government, came from more than five hundred years of English tradition. For it was their ancestors who brought their king under the law; and the revolutionary generation of the eighteenth-century, was determined to do the same, but this time, they would make a government of laws not of men. Privilege was out and merit was in. However, in the 1790s, a new political base emerged, with quite different ideas in mind.       Subsequently, the great republican experiment, not only; DID NOT FAIL, it was never allowed to happen, before a new and different kind of authority and political base had changed the republican regime from within, immediately after the inception of the infant republic.  

     As the revolutionary generation stood in awe of what was happening, to their Revolution, they could only and quickly, distance  themselves, as their republic unraveled about them.

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.

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."

Aubrey Glen Mobley
About the Author:

 

Auubrey Glen Mobley was born in the northeast corner of the state of Arkansas. When he was 5 years old he moved to the state of Arizona.

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

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

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

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

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

This story is about the Quapaw Indians who lived here.  

Description:

 

“Quapaw,” Indian word meaning, “Down stream people.”

            In 1541, Hernando De Soto slaughtered all the people of a tiny village of Quapaw Indians except for a 15 year old boy named Kyota.  Kyota fought back killing many Spanish soldiers, and finally put the fatal shot into De Soto.  The village was rebuilt, and Kyota vowed to never allow his village be destroyed again.  But he died in 1593, leaving his son Cotekya in charge of their safety.

            The village is near Spirit Lake, as the Indians called it, and is nestled in the foothills of the Osark Mountain range in Northeast Arkansas, near the present day town of Pocahontas.  The year is 1610 and the Spaniards have returned.  They were in search of the fabled city of gold that De Soto had sought long and unsuccessfully for.  But this time it would be different.

            The Chief, Cotekya, had a grandson also named Cotekya.  This is his story.

Cecilia didn't answer. She didn't realize that he was waiting, his life hanging on a thread. But she had heard a sound from across the street, a person's breathing. Somebody was out there. On the night of her big break, artist Cecilia Hunt, meets a wealthy, older man, Leonard Maxwell. An avid art collector, Maxwell takes special interest in her to the disapproval of his ex-lover, the beautiful actress, Annabel Richardson. The morning after Cecilia has dinner with him, Maxwell is found dead. Murdered. And Cecilia, the last person to see him alive, suddenly becomes prime suspect. Clues at the scene also point to her: a painting she sold to Maxwell that night and a missing check, which the detectives presume was paid out to her for the purchase. Believing to have been framed by the jealous Annabel, Cecilia is on the run. She enlists the help of older sister, Jemma, who is torn between loyalty to her and to her best friend, Annabel. Unfortunately, as Jemma attempts to clear the misunderstanding, she encounters a terrible accident. On her own, distressed and frightened, Cecilia struggles to survive on the streets and prove her innocence. She is misunderstood by her best friend, Lucy, and robbed of her artistic success. People aren’t what they appear to be; situations are not what they seem. Desperate, she fights back. As she unearths the truth, she finds that the key to the mystery lies in her painting. Soon things come to a head, and there are more casualties, including Cecilia who almost pays the ultimate price—her life.

Yes. Lasting joy and peace can be yours!

S.J. Munson
About the Author:

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."

Description:

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!

 
Here's what people are saying about The Treasure of Israel...
 
"An incredible story that will keep you on the edge of your seat!" --Greg Holmes, Revival Nation Publishing
 
"...One part historical mystery, one part modern thriller, and altogether a great read...Christian fiction at its best."    --Long Island Council of Churches, "Prelude," September 2009

"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

 

From Amazon.com customer reviews...
 
"Fast-paced, gripping and thoroughly enjoyable. Total escape to a world parallel to The DaVinci Code, deftly layered with humor, insight, history and adrenaline. Highly recommended."
 
"Powerful & Intelligent Literature - Couldn't put it down!"
 
"Had me on the edge of my seat, and the surprise ending was not only exciting but the perfect conclusion to a book that satisfied my every expectation from a good novel."
 
"The historical accuracy is astounding, the writing is superb, the idea is creative and original. He claims his space and has his own unique style and nails it. He uses flashbacks and an expressive narrative that builds the kind of tension that's needed to forge a "sit on the edge of your seat" suspense thriller!"
 
"One of those books that you sacrifice sleep for, just to get through 'one more chapter.'"
 
"The dialogue is smart and sassy and hilarious."

Gene Twaronite
About the Author:

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."

Description:

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.

"Algunos Adioses sin Respuesta"

Mis poemas son el resultado de instantes fugaces en los que leo una mirada, una pequeña historia que cabe en la forma en que unos brazos yacen apoyados o en un gesto de profunda tristeza o alegría; o en un momento de temblor estético; instantes que, si bien son fugaces, provocan una intensa emoción en mi; surgen, entonces, los versos como verdades incompletas que buscan explicar esa realidad captada, vienen y van en mi mente hasta que aflora el poema como un saber dormido.

...

porque yo, soy poeta, leo las almas

y cuento las lágrimas de la vida.
