About the Author:

A special note to teachers and parents: I've included in the Introduction some background notes on the genesis of each story. You might also be interested in the fact that the readability of these stories, according to the Flesch-Kinkaid Scale (Reading Level Statistics), ranges from 2.4 to 7.3, with an average of 4.5. Most young readers, along with those adults who have not forgotten how to read or what it feels like to be a child, should be able to handle these stories. And for those adults who have forgotten what it feels like to be a child, maybe these stories will help you remember.

My stories have been published in numerous journals and magazines, including Highlights for Children and Weekly Reader. I am also the author of the middle grade novel The Family That Wasn't and the young adult novel My Vacation in Hell. You can follow more of my writing at my blog "The Twaronite Zone."  http://www.thetwaronitezone.com

 

Description:

“… he heard a strange rumbling noise coming from the kitchen. Then a loud crash. He got there just in time to see a small glacier go right through the kitchen wall, into the living room, and out the front door.” (from “The Glacier That Almost Ate Main Street”)

A glacier that starts in a refrigerator is just one of the weird things that can happen in these twenty-one stories by Highlights for Children author Gene Twaronite. What if you showed up for school one day, but the school wasn’t there? What if words suddenly leapt off the page in the book you’re reading and floated away? What if the jet you’re on is afraid to fly? What if your parents gave you a real live rhino for your birthday? What if a little snake stretched and stretched to become the longest snake in the world? What if dragons really exist somewhere? What if …? Discover the answers to these and other questions. But be careful. Imagination can be a dangerous thing … especially if someone closes the book on you while you’re inside.

While some of these stories were first published in magazines including Highlights for Children and Read (Weekly Reader), many are brand new. So what are you waiting for? Jump right in—have fun with your head! Includes nine original, full-color illustrations not found in the print edition.

As a registered psychotherapist/healer I have observed many different types of behavior as well observing my own self. When first introduced to the topic of the Enneagram and later studying it I was completely amazed at how complete this system is, more so than other personality profiling. The Enneagram helped me tremendously and so my desire is to allow everyone the same freedom of belief...belief in yourself and that you are an amazing human being.

Helen Wilson
About the Author:

Helen Wilson was born in 1959 to Irish and Scottish parents. Since taking degrees at the universities of Hull and Manchester, she has been a lecturer in Further Education, but only began to write seriously after attending a course at the Hen House in Lincolnshire, and completing an M.A. at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Writing School. Her work has recently been broadcast on local radio and has appeared in a variety of magazines and anthologies including Reactions 2, Muse 3, and Lancashire Life. She lives in the Ribble Valley with her husband and son.

Description:

Intense, tender, and fiercely-felt, the poems in Thoth confront the tensions between past and present. This is territory that Helen Wilson has made her own: a domestic world threaded through with history and myth.

Presided over by the ibis-headed Egyptian god of scribes, who records whether the dead are “ true of voice ”, these are poems which explore the magical properties of words, and the power of stories. Here a mother talks to her son, nuns, queens, crones and concubines speak to us across time; and women invariably have the last word.

Helen Wilson is a writer with compelling tales to tell.

Simon Armitage on “ Mother Love ”:

This is terrific stuff. The poem has a brilliant sense of certainty with the undepleted sureness of the female perspective, the alternative reading of what is otherwise a blood and guts boys’-own story. Excellent.

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!"

A chance meeting with a mysterious scientist, draws him out of his, once isolated, existence and into a world of intrigue and mystery.

‘All evil is privation and all it’s agents, parasites.’ Shulkra: Book of Human Principles

Sample

Astrid’s father stared out of the window, down to the New York streets below. He feared for his daughter but was careful to show no emotion. A Clerical Agent from Dess, stood behind him, dressed in the same garb as the old man at the wedding. He spoke quietly with a smooth, Caribbean baritone, his hand resting on the back of Astrid's Father's office chair,

‘We know about the portfolio - the accounts. It’s OK. Perfectly understandable - given your daughters complete lack of formation and faith.’

He removed his hand and proceeded to walk about the office, casually eyeing-up it’s contents, like they were part of some new acquisition,

‘No matter. As you know, she’s been very fruitful in yielding Readers and her research has proved to be very interesting indeed. Your concealing her talents has actually worked out for the best.’

Astrid’s father was motionless. He continued to stare out of the window as if he were alone.

‘...Your wife, true to form, has struck a deal with the 9th Chamber. She and your daughter are safe. You get a little time and your life. But after this is over? - Excommunication. And you better make provision... because we are taking it all back - everything.’

About the Author:

When Susan Moore Jordan was a high school student in the mid nineteen-fifties in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, a close friend went through a shattering event just as she was preparing to audition for the high school’s annual musical. Decades later Jordan used that experience of tragedy to triumph to write her first novel, How I Grew Up, in 2013. Two additional novels followed: Eli’s Heart in 2014 and You Are My Song in 2015, completing “The Carousel Trilogy.” A fourth novel, Jamie’s Children, was released in July, 2016.

Memories of Jake, the first book in a two-part series set during the Vietnam War era, was released in March, 2017, followed by Man with No Yesterdays in November, 2017. All of Jordan's novels are drawn from her life experiences as a voice teacher and stage director and are inspired by real people she has encountered.

Jordan attended the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati and moved to the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania in 1971 with her late husband and three young children, where she established a private voice studio in 1979. Her students have gone on to leading schools of music and opera or musical theater companies around the world. 
Beginning in 1984, Jordan directed some eighty local community and high school musical theater productions. She retired from directing in 2015 after over thirty years and wrote about her adventures in “More Fog, Please”: Thirty-One Years Directing Community and High School Musicals, released in November, 2015.

After graduating high school in beautiful and naïve Carson City, Nevada the author spent 4 years in the US Navy learning Chinese Mandarin and bureaucracy. He spent his GI Bill earning a Manufacturing Engineering Degree from Oregon State University – home of the Beavers. Upon graduation he was lucky enough to get sucked into the vortex of a major truck manufacturer where he spent the next 25 years doing everything from licking boots to booting up IT systems. His 3 year honeymoon in China, from bumfuck to Beijing, along with many, many meetings and assignations across the country and all over Europe made it clear that people are strange and wonderful no matter where you find them. Tim has been capturing his impressions for a long time. This book is the first exposure for people outside his immediate loop. He lives in Seattle with his lovely wife Dulcie and the semi-domesticated hummingbirds that come to the back deck for nectar. The cats and dogs doing their business in his yard are, presumably, some sort of cherry on top. 

Description:

This is a book for pet lovers and pet haters and other people that live in America today. Everyone wins – especially the helpless animals that are forever being processed through the Pet Retailing and Industrial Complex (Big Pet). This book will help change minds about what needs to be done to reduce animal suffering and how people can start on that today. But instead of the guilt-trippy misery associated with a lot of facts and sad pictures, this book makes the case with hilarious tales, outrageous suppositions and totally made up charts and graphs. Perhaps the most useful information within is the many helpful tips on how to get laid! Improve your batting average in just 10 minutes! Start reading immediately!

Some people love pets. Some people tolerate pets. Some people actually, really hate pets. Some actual people and some corporate persons sell pets. Individually each person goes about their business related to pets and thinks they are doing normal things in their lives. The truth is that the entire pet ecosystem is out of whack. Seriously out of whack. Anyone willingly participating in a system responsible for the death of a cat or dog in America every 8 seconds is fantastically deluded or sadistically deranged. Nevertheless, here we are with “the people” up to their lips in vet bills and cat taco outfits and sh*t management solutions. Everywhere you go there are pets. Everybody is either convinced or getting convinced that pets are a good fit with whatever they are doing at the moment. Be it working, playing, eating, teaching, learning, shopping,… it doesn’t matter they think a pet should be there. I propose a climb-down from pet ubiquity. A fresh look at and a changing of the national mind about pets. Can’t we get along with a hell of a lot less pet choice? Can’t we agree to try to get the death rate up to 10 seconds? Go hog wild and shoot for 20?

Terry Nelson
About the Author:

I became interested in this story for a few reasons. One is that I love movies. I took  film courses in college, wrote a script to attain enough college credits in order to graduate, managed theatres, and reviewed films for a newspaper for over ten years, and now post them on my website, terrynelson.net. Also I enjoy reading about historical and cultural events, and true life unsolved mysteries are fun to research.

I also knew, many years ago when I was in high school, an elderly housekeeper, who I came to find out, was once married to a Hollywood producer during the silent era. She was reluctant to talk about that period of her life, but one day she opened up, telling why she didn't like talking about those days, then softened a little, mentioning people she knew, and the kind of parties that went on. I don't recall her ever talking about it again. I did, however, gain some knowledge about the time and place which I tried to incorporate into the story.

Without revealing too much-this is a mystery after all-my ending is different than might be expected. The challenge was placing the killer at the scene using the facts of the case, not altering them in anyway for the sake of convenience. Using the events of that night, including a possible eye witness, is a challenge for anyone to place any killer, save one at the scene. I do believe that knowing of incidents leading to the murder, as well as studying the people involved, that this is a very likely scenario. But of course there could be others, but I chose this character as the killer, not only because of the likelyhood, but also because of the literary and dramatic effect to end the story.

Description:

Being a movie fan, the unsolved murder of silent film director William Desmond Taylor in 1922 has always fascinated not only me, but many others. And who doesn't like solving a mystery? More than three non-fiction books have researched the murder; all arriving at a different killer. There have been documentaries made. Even a graphic novel. There are plenty of suspects, including two leading actresses. There is possible police corruption and a cover-up, evidence that goes missing, and a key suspect that disappears and is never heard from or seen again. The murder captivated the country during a period when the Fatty Arbuckle case was going on and many civic groups were calling for banning movies in their cities. Hollywood was in a panic. And newspapers and magazines creating lurid and sensatonal stories did not help.

In my fictionalized account, Chester Koski, a writer for Famous-Players Lasky, is told by a studio executive to find out what happened at the bungalow of murdered silent film director William Desmond Taylor.

Chet and his wife Eveleen, who appeared in my novel "Loonies in the Dugout," are aided by a police detective who apprises Chet of the investigation, and by a 22-year old wealthy flapper, a friend of Eveleen. Things get complicated for Chet when someone steals his new radio and then is accused of murdering Gawen Wainright, a drug addicted actor friend of Eveleen.

There are many suspects: Actress Mabel Normand who was the last to see Taylor alive; Mary Miles Minter, a young actress enamored of Taylor; Minter’s overprotective mother Charlotte Shelby; Tom Dixon, wealthy pencil heir and jealous suitor of Minter; Patricia Palmer, an actress involved in shady activities; and Edward Sands, Taylor’s former valet and known thief who has disappeared.

About the Author:

MI nombre es Fernando Sobenes, soy peruano – venezolano, oficial retirado de la Policía Nacional del Perú (Ex Policía de Investigaciones) y abogado, me encanta la lectura y escribir. Creo que mi trabajo es especial porque aborda de manera singular la  conducta del ser humano ante las adversidades y su forma de afrontarlas. Lleva al lector a un punto muy alto de suspenso durante el desenlace de la trama como si fuera una montaña rusa, lo hace de manera ágil y entretenida.  También aborda la manera en que vemos a la figura de Dios, es decir: Como nos la muestra la Iglesia Católica y nos hace pensar un poco más allá de lo que nos han enseñado.  Hace reflexionar a la vez que busca entretener  a quienes disfrutamos de este tipo de novelas: El terror y suspenso están presentes de principio a fin, donde un ser tenebroso, terrible destruye la vida de las personas de manera macabra y sobrenatural. Es una novela que no se puede dejar a un lado y estoy convencido de que logra su cometido.

Description:

Norte de Kuwait 1991 Guerra del Golfo Pérsico; Peter Donovan Teniente del Ejército de los Estados Unidos al mando de un grupo de soldados cae en una emboscada en el desierto de Irak y como consecuencia sucede una masacre. En ese lugar halla un amuleto que guarda en su bolsillo sin saber que encierra un poder oculto y a causa de ello; tiene su primer encuentro aterrador en un sepulcro bajo las arenas del desierto con un ser maligno que lo llevará al umbral de la muerte.

Transcurren varios años luego de estos acontecimientos y Peter, después de abandonar las Fuerzas Armadas, se traslada a un lugar en los Estados Unidos llamado “Lago Feliz” donde se establece y contrae matrimonio formando una familia. Este es un lugar muy bello donde las personas viven felizmente alejadas del estrés de las grandes ciudades. Allí conviven otras tantas que disfrutan del clima, tranquilidad y belleza del lugar que cuenta con un lago y un gran bosque.

Peter se desempeña como Sheriff del pueblo y se reúne con algunos de sus vecinos los fines de semana para compartir en familia. Sus vidas transcurren con tranquilidad y felicidad hasta el día en que se les ocurre jugar con la Tabla Ouija y utilizan el amuleto traído desde el desierto, abriendo sin querer, una entrada para que la maldad llegue a sus vidas; destruyéndolas, sembrando espanto y muerte. Fenómenos paranormales, posesiones espeluznantes y muertes trágicas crean un clima de suspenso y terror a esta obra.
Esta novela aborda el aspecto de la lucha entre el bien y el mal. Uno de los protagonistas, el Padre Josh Carter, lucha contra sus principios y todo lo aprendido en el seminario al darse cuenta que la propia Iglesia se contradice y no acata sus preceptos. Comienza a renegar de su fe y a colocar en tela de juicio a las autoridades del clero y comprueba (muy a su pesar) que ha sido engañado lo cual lo desmorona emocionalmente.

También toca el tema del exorcismo y de la visión que tiene la Iglesia al respecto, así como la manipulación que se hace de estas situaciones. Problemas de índole mental que son utilizadas a conveniencia como métodos de propaganda y captación de fieles. Esta novela atrapa de inmediato al lector y está dedicada a un público adulto, personas que gusten de emociones fuertes y las hacen identificarse con los personajes, sus vivencias, temores, amores y sufrimientos. Es una novela ágil, emocionante y llena de suspenso, que no se puede dejar a un lado, entretiene y mantiene al lector en un constante interés por su desenlace.

Description:
What Can I Bring? A holiday multi-cultural cookbook from an Italian point of view. Quick and easy dishes one can prepare for holiday gatherings that are healthy and flavorful. This book has a heavy family theme. The chef is Isabella Morgia di Vicari, a Central Florida caterer who co-owned a premier Italian restaurant for over 20 years in Orlando. Her passion for people, family and food resonate throughout every recipe and personal story. Here is an excerpt from her book: "As you go through these recipes you'll see that you can use them in many different ways. In other words some of the entrees can be made into appetizers and vice versa. Now here are a few tips on how to make these recipes even healthier; •Use Whole Wheat Pasta. •Reduce the amount of extra virgin olive oil. •Add wheat germ to the recipes. •Replace some of the unbleached flour with whole wheat flour or soy flour. •Add beans to the salads or more of your favorite fresh vegetables Flavorful, aromatic, healthy and satisfying is what I think we should all strive for when we bring a dish to someone's home. We want "Mangiare con Sapore" - "Food with Flavor" as my Nonna Isabella use to say! The true message I want to convey to my famiglia or friends is that I care enough to make this for you. Sure at times it's easier to buy something already prepared, a bottle of vino, candy, and flowers. There's nothing wrong with that but when we take the time to create something well thought out, especially with them in mind, we communicate something very different. That's what I want to do. That's what I want to share with you. I'm always saying that in order to impact the lives of others we need to touch them at the "heart-string level". I believe it's there and only there where we're able to impact change or stir emotion within. I apply this mindset to all I do with famiglia, friends, business associates and my clients. Yes it's all personal to me."

Violet is trying to remember.

The pictures don’t help. She’s analyzed countless photographs of her life before the accident, but nothing in them is familiar. She still doesn’t recognize her parents or even herself. Not even her father, who has dedicated his every waking moment to her recovery, has been able to resurrect her memories.

Together, they intend to start a new life in Eligo, where no one knows who they are, or what they’ve lost. There, Violet meets David. He provides a welcome distraction from the pressure she feels at home. With him, she can be herself instead of struggling to be the girl she once was.

But when Violet suspects that her father is lying about their past, she needs David’s help to uncover the truth. What they find goes beyond her family—a secret worth killing for.

It’s too late now. Violet and David can’t turn back, and there’s only one option left.

Run.

About the Author:

I grew up east of the 100th meridian, which meant that I had no inkling of what it would be like to experience a major wildland fire like the ones that take place in the American West. Quite a few years ago, an arsonist lit a fire near the small city I moved to in far northern California, one which burned 64,000 acres, demolished the rural health clinic my husband helped found, and destroyed 600 structures. The hair-raising stories from our friends who had to flee the fire made a huge impression on me—so much so that I decided research the phenomenon and write this.

Then the Lightning Siege of 2008 struck. Six thousand lightning strikes sparked two thousand fires, 150 of them in the area where I live, three of them right behind the ridge my home occupies. One night, after weeks of smoke and jangled nerves, the wind came howling down off the Oregon desert and every fire around us exploded. That night, my husband and I awoke in the middle of the night to find our bedroom flooded with orange light. When we stepped to the window, we saw that flames were dancing along the top of the entire ridgeline that formed our western horizon. We were evacuated for eight nail-biting days.

Living through a wildland fire was as awe-inspiring, terrifying, and daunting as I had imagined. Anyone who has lived through one of these elemental experiences knows this. I hope that this book can give those who have never had such an experience a vivid picture of what it would be like, as well as give voice to those who have.

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 served as editor-in-chief for the literary magazine, The Hot Air Quarterly, for several years. My first novel, The Last Good Fairy, first published as a limited collector’s edition won a New England Book Show Award for excellence in book design; it is currently available on Kindle. 

Description:

A burned-out physician whose stale world is crumbling around him, a homeless man bedeviled by a phantom loss, an alienated young girl living off the grid with her controlling father, a volunteer firefighter driven by a devastating mistake … Fifteen compelling voices tell the story of a raging, out-of-control wildfire.

By turns heartbreaking, triumphant, mysterious, and familiar, Altar of Fire illustrates how seeds of redemption, release, and hope can germinate beneath the ashes of loss. And it reminds us of the potential that lies within not only each challenge, but also each individual, no matter how broken or lost.
