Clarissa Simmens
About the Author:

Retired as an Assistant Director of Financial Aid at a Florida community college, I have become a self-published author (what fun!). Growing herbs and experimenting by concocting healing salves and infusions is part of my spiritual life. As a 75% Romani, I learned to create my path, The Drom Ek Romani, from my grandmother, a drabarni, or herbalist, while growing up in Philadelphia. My books include The Way of One Gypsy, The Gypsy's Book, Drab Lil: A Gypsy's Medicine Book and Madame Sosostris Explains (a poetry patchwork). Married and living in Florida, my two sons and granddaughter live at least 995 miles north but cell phones and eMail bridge the distance daily.

Description:

THE TITLE: At the age of seventeen I discovered T.S. Eliot's poem “The Wasteland.” The only part of the poem I could relate to was about “Madame Sosostris, famous clairvoyante.” Four of the tarot cards are invented by Eliot (Drowned Phoenician Sailor, Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks and the Lady of Situations). Having invented my own Drom Ek Romani cards as part of my heritage, I could appreciate his imaginary cards with their mystical names. My first poem explains each tarot card and the second one details the Drom Romani although I make no claim to be a “famous clairvoyante.” The other poems are a patchwork of subjects including tributes to Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, and other writers of music and poetry.

THE POEMS: With the exception of several free verse poems, the others are a mixture of Shakespearean Sonnets, Terza Rima, Rima Royale, and, well, more sonnets. The poetry forms are very confining yet I attempted to make them all-encompassing in their little world. When writing the 22 sonnets for the Drom Romani I began speaking in rhyming iambic pentameter in my dreams. Does that make me a poet? I hope so. Failing that, a sonnet a day keeps senility away. I am hoping that whatever your age, you find enjoyment in my poetry.

About the Author:

The author joined the Women's Movement in 1968 after personal study in Mythology, Anthropology and Archaeology with a final commitment to Anthro-Apology.  She is a cartoonist as well as a researcher and writer.  Her works include other e-books: Wartime In America 1941-1945 -- An Homefront Idyl; The Single Girls' Guide to Greek Gods; The Onus on Men and How It Grew -- The Bonus to Women; Gender Therapy, an Illustrated Anthology.

Description:

In the words of the courageous archaeologist missionary who sacrificed her own well-being to save all Atlanteans from further descent on the evolutionary scale: We are fotunate to have come to Atlantis at a time long after we might have encountered the Rockmen of Megaton Island in their rise as Rockefellas or in their rapid decline as Goodfellas.  Worse we might have encountered the 'World's Most Powerfus Man' in the form of a John-son or a Jack-son, or have been 'smitten' by silver screen goddesses.  Rather, we rapidly gained ascendancy over the inhabitants in their present total degardation.  Wherever we encounter the species, we must not assign our qualities of caring and compassion to such combative, overly talkative animals or we run the risk of permitting their modern mutants, however small in size and number they may be, too much liberty to run about untethered.  (I do protest that the caging of any animal should only be done in extreme circumstances regardless of the custom among You-Mens to keep so many of their own kind in cages.)

And so, this long over-due illustrated study for a comprehensive Anthro-Apology is offered to the perceptive reader based on the translated journals of Sorrel Starling, a deserted, denigrated missionary to the Burning West.  Through Rev. Starling's hands-on analysis of finds out of the cavernous ruins of Megaton Island, sifted and sorted from the mud of an infested swamp where tons of wash were white-washed, exhumed from haunted religious sites in Holy-Wood, the frightening, shocking, wierd evidence mounts to conclusively reveal how ancient Skyscraperans of the First and Second Millennia lived and died. 

Let the reader decide under Universal Suffrage whether You-Manity should be classified as and Endangered Species or a Dangerous Species. Please sign up to receive more information when The Legendary Skyscraper You-Mens is a published e-book.

About the Author:

“Ray intertwines key dynamics of the global environment and American society to explore how individuals and families will be forced to respond to intersecting global crises. This is a heck of a story with a large cast of compelling characters.”

—  Charles Hugh Smith, author/blogger, Of Two Minds

“Earth’s climate is unstable, and we are pushing it hard towards a sudden shift to a new state by pumping huge quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. A radical shift in the climate between the years 2018-2028 as envisioned by Welch is entirely plausible.”

—  Dr. Jeff Masters, Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

“We are already seeing (as predicted) outsized warming of the Arctic compared to other parts of the globe. There is growing evidence that we are already seeing weather patterns being influenced by loss of Arctic sea ice.” 

—  Dr. Mark Serreze, Director, National Snow and Ice Data Center, U. of Colorado at Boulder

“Ray has worked in the energy business for years and knows it inside out.” 

—  Chris Rafael, Editor, California Energy Markets

A Change in the Weather is a well-written and disturbing page-turner.  Ray has composed an edgy mix of fact and fiction that kept each of us up late each night until we were done. We looked forward to every chapter as he was writing them.”

Description:

A Change in the Weather follows the Russell family during the tenth anniversary of the disappearance of the polar ice cap, from March 2028 through May 2029. The Arctic has inverted from heat reflector to heat sink, and the jet stream has broken from its age-old trajectory to whip the globe like an unattended fire hose. Rainfall patterns shift the world over. Agriculture fails. The international economy collapses. Terrorism surges.

In the ensuing panic, the United States embraces President Roland Strauch, a Biblical literalist who heads the American Homeland Party and its armed militia, the Order of the Eagle and Cross.

Each member of the Russell family does what he or she thinks is right in an America where democracy and Christianity struggle to survive.  What each thinks is right couldn't be more in conflict.

About the Author:
Taught the amazing beauty and majesty of the English language by Bob Dylan, Robertson Davies, Charles Dickens and Leonard Cohen in a way school could never inspire, I have a lifelong desire to use words to paint pictures in the tales I long to tell. Coming of age in the turbulent 60’s, life has been a journey of successes and failures, but, as Dylan said, “There is no success like failure”. Each defeat was actually a fork in the road leading to the world of the written word. It seems like the road less traveled, but it has taken me to where I needed to be. I have traveled the globe, dined with politicians, rock stars and beggars. I have rubbed shoulders with priests and murderers, surgeons and drug dealers, each one giving me a part of themselves that will live again in the pages of my books. I have been blessed to be married for over thirty five years, given three sons and now three grandchildren. What you read today is just a small part of what I have to give you.

The path to keeping his word is blocked at every turn by the husband who has abandoned her, his shady real estate deals, violent con men, street thugs and the lure of a fortune in diamonds that bring them all together. The anger, sorrow, and crippling guilt of twenty years fires Cole’s drive to keep a promise, that in the end, will heal and return the soul to the great journalist. Beaten, bloody but determined, Cole Sage conquers greed and hatred with a strength that only love and a will as hard as diamond can achieve.

John Deakins
About the Author:

    There is no other medium that feeds the soul and captures the imagination like a good book.  When the weight of the world presses down on each of us, or we simply need an enjoyable break from a busy and harried life, a book can transport us to places of dreams, incredible imagination, and enlghtenment. As has everyone, I have experienced many highs and lows in my life.  This is reflected in my writing by trying to be true to human experiences: love and hate, incredible joy and heart-breaking sorrow, open-mindedness, bigotry, the wonders of our natural world, the astonishing things to be learned beyond our physical senses, and the redeeming and universal qualities of "goodness". 

 I loved my years in school and eventually earned a university degree in English Education for K-12, and a second in Creative Writing. While teaching kids of all ages I was impressed by how smart, funny, creative and resilent they could be even in the toughest of curcumstances. Knowing the benefit of growing up loving to read anything and everything, I endeavored to instill the love of reading (and writing) in my own children, as well as the many students I was honored to teach. 

    I began writing before I had a whisker on my face. I have never stopped writing..whether short stories, essays, news articles, technical papers, magazine pieces, plays, a sreenplay, advertising, or simply recording my dreams in a journal.  I have done stints as a teacher, an oral storyteller, a recording engineer, a songwriter and musician, a poet, a blue collar worker, and more...all the while crafting my style, raising my huge family (and growing a huge garden to feed all those mouths). I have kept really busy...and in doing so I have never been bored...and it has given me much opportunity to keep my ear to the world and my eyes to the rythym of the hopes and dreams of people.

     I am happily married for 43 years to my high school sweetheart, the father of 7 children, and  "Papa" to my 25 grandchildren ages 22 to a few months.  There is no way (and I wouldn't have it any other way!) to not be immersed in the creative and wondrous world of children. For the last 3 years I have enjoyed being a real bearded Santa for the children of our area. I always spend time with the children and enjoy answering their Santa, Reindeer, and Elf  questions. I think I could write a book about all the interesting and funny things that I have heard the children say to me as Santa.

     I wrote the first Laser O'Hara book "The Hole In Eighth Level" for my children and grandchildren (my best and greatest critics) and have passed it on to you. I am currently working on the 2nd and 3rd of 7 books in the Laser O'Hara series, and finishing up a picture book for the little ones.  I certainly don't shy away from the complicated questions that are part of our culture and world, but believe that children should be well-rounded and given the chance to explore a bit of philosophy, religion, mythology, mystery,and universal human dramas and dilemmas.  I have not failed if I can engage the reader...and inspire a bit of thought, a smidgin of inspiration, and a good serving of entertainment.  So...

    The Laser O'Hara Series will be great reading for older children and young adults. I hope that parents will enjoy reading to their younger children the escapades of Laser and his sister Gabby, as they grow up, have fun adventures, and are challenged with everyday life and some tough decisions and incredible experiences in some not so everyday places.  

Description:

Laser O'Hara and his younger sister Gabby find themselves in a dire predicament after their family has been relocated, discovered, and then threatened because of the research of their long missing scientist father.  Luckily, through instructions his Dad has left coded and hidden for him in case of such a threat, Laser is able to build an L.D.D., a machine that makes it possible to travel inter-dimensional levels and to find and rescue their trapped father. Exciting ,sometimes scary, and even humorous events unfold when they unexpectedly pick up a couple of unplanned travelers. The greatest challenge for the kids is to stop an evil plan from collapsing all the levels and ultimately bringing about the destruction of the multiple worlds where they have learned to love and trust themselves and other wonderfully diverse beings. This book is a great triumph for illustrating the ongoing battle between good and evil...the dynamics of love and hate...and the complexities that often come with discerning the difference. You will want to continue on with Laser and Gabby as they pursue more adventures together discovering, shedding light on, and solving universal mysteries and intriguing enigma and puzzles.

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:

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

While a shaken President sits beside his injured wife considering resignation, the fiend behind the assassination attempt ramps up a smear campaign calculated to initiate impeachment, and orders his henchmen to scare off—kill, if necessary—a troublesome reporter determined to report only the facts. Still not satisfied, the evil-doer funds Al-Qaeda in a conspiracy to bring both America and its President to their knees. The terrorist attacks are executed with near-perfect precision: as an airplane spews a deadly new strain of anthrax over a crowd of over 100,000 unsuspecting football fans, Al-Qaeda members gun down random individuals at other nationally recognized gridiron venues.

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

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

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

"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.

I have been a zompoc fan since my mom first allowed me to watch Romero's Dawn of the Dead when I was twelve. Thanks Mom! I am also enamored with the Walking Dead series on AMC. While I was writing the novel Trudge: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse I really felt as if I were a fly on the wall watching it all unfold. My first novel came to me easier than I imagined. Many places in the novel are real and I have been there. Please enjoy the first installment in the Trudge series.

Description:

Cade Grayson finds himself separated from his wife and daughter during a viral outbreak; between them are 3000 miles and millions of infected. Cade must form alliances and rely on his military training to run the gauntlet of undead, as well as the living.

He must leave Portland, Oregon, to locate his family in South, Carolina. Fifteen months after an honorable discharge the disillusioned former Tier-1 operator travels east with his less than clean-cut neighbor and two neighbor kids.

Meanwhile, his wife Brook is forced to flee the famillial home with daughter Raven in tow.

Humans bent on taking advantage of other humans are as much a threat as the newly risen walking corpses.

Incommunicado and desperate for any information about the outbreaks spread, Cade must chart the right course on his trudge to reunite with his family.

Description:

For many years, I wanted to write a story about the mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana.  Particularly the role of the Air Force in airlifting the remains back to the United States.  I refused to write about it because I thought anything connected with Jonestown should entail one sentence: Guyana was a horrible, horrible event, and the U.S. Military did gruesome things they should never, never had done. 

But as time passed, the fact that I never wrote about Guyana became oddly disturbing.  If you’re a writer, the assimilation of experiences almost obliges you to write about them.  So I wrote Ghost of Guyana.

He was also a featured coach on The Golf Channel’s “School of Golf” in 2009 and is the only coach in the world to have developed two Byron Nelson International Junior Golf Award recipients in the same year (2008). Both students were his full-time academy boarding students. He has developed 8 Junior All-Americans, who were also his full-time boarding students, while helping to cultivate dozens of college scholarship athletes, as well.

In 2011-2012, he directed the training and instruction for the IUPUI Jaguars who shot the lowest single day tournament round of the year out of all NCAA Division 1 teams shooting 265 (-19) at Primm Valley Golf Club in Nevada. Also, in 2012, IUPUI won the most regular season tournaments (7) out of all NCAA Division 1 teams.

Description:

More and more major champions are preparing like Olympians prepare in other sports. Have you ever wondered how they work on the different aspects of their games, or how often you should practice different elements of your game? Or, have you ever thought about how often major champions utilize video analysis and work on "swing shape" relative to ball flight, distance control, and feel drills? Similarly, have you ever wondered how many rounds major champions play between tournaments, or how often they do pre-shot routines and what they think about? These questions, and more, will be answered in Train for Golf Like an Olympian, so you can bring your "A Game" to the first tee.

Gilchrist and Huffman convey the training knowledge that they have shared with the top players in the game of golf. Now, this unprecedented inside look at top players’ training regimens is finally available for YOU to apply.

Gilchrist and Huffman’s method teaches you to understand your own game, to understand your own swing, and to utilize a “troubleshooting guide” which in turn creates self-sufficiency. You will have an understanding of the drills you are performing and have an understanding of the entire system under which you are training. You will learn how to analyze your performance and understand how to make a plan to learn and improve. This plan also prevents the most common faults and bad habits which create bad shots and bad scores from ever creeping in one's game. You can imagine how good your game will be once you have an easy to follow, detailed plan that the best in the world have used and have proved works time and time again.

The proven, world-class training system in this book is the accumulation of groundbreaking knowledge from various athletic disciplines and provides a highly structured, yet, easy-to-follow, minute-by-minute blueprint on how to become a great golfer. An abundance of empirical data, which reveals the keys to maximizing one’s potential in the game of golf, was gathered and utilized from many other sports, many systems, and many individuals over many years. This system has been formulated and refined by charting out practice schedules, analyzing tournament results, and fine-tuning the blueprint for many years.

There are a lot of “keys” in this book. Make note of the ones you enjoy, and learn from them. By reading this book, you gain first-hand knowledge from the absolute top experts in the game of golf regarding training through performance cycles and their phases. You are getting the only golf training information in the world that discusses peak performance with this much science, research, and experience behind it. Take advantage of the knowledge and make it work for you.

Historically, the system and concept of periodization that Gilchrist and Huffman utilize has produced numerous champions in other sports such as cycling, running, tennis, and swimming, as well as by great golf champions such as Tiger Woods. A periodization system is a long-term process that has developed champions at all levels, and if you understand and apply the knowledge in this book, you will have a much, much more realistic opportunity to optimize peak performances than someone with your same talent level who is not familiar with the knowledge in this book. Reading this book is like training with Gilchrist and Huffman who have both coached major champions.

About the Author:

Patricia (Uziel) Terry was born in Kansas City, Kansas, Oct. 1941. Grew up on Strawberry Hill, went to Saint John the Baptist School and was in the adjacent orphanage just like my Uncle Willie Radkay. I was raised by my grandmother, Uncle Willie's mother. I never meant to be an author but listening to my Uncle's stories I knew they had to be in print for posterity. I can only imagine what he didn't tell me about the life he led.

Description:

Willie Radkay grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, spanning the two World Wars, Prohibition, the Great Depression and the Gangster era. A lawless soul, Willie survived numerous bank robberies, jail breaks, escapes and gun battles. Looking at old microfilm of newspaper articles in relation to a jewelry heist my Uncle told me about it, I read that he had been shot 12-times.  I took the printed article to my Uncle to ask him about being shot.  He said he didn't remember.  I said: "How can you get shot 12-times and not remember", he replied, "Tough skin, soft bullets and they didn't hit anything important". In the book a picture of Willie's torso shows the six slugs still in his body but imagine my surprise after viewing the entire X-ray after the book was published he also had a slug in each arm, which meant he carried 8-bullets in his body for over sixty-years. In later years when he drove to our home with a fractured hip from a fall my husband and I carried him from the driver's seat to the passenger seat.  My husband commented: "You sure are heavy for a little guy".  Uncle Willie said: "Yeah that's from all the lead in my ass".
 The Kansas City Star said that Willie was one of the most notorious armed robbers in Kansas City's history.http://www.willieradkayalcatraz.com

Within the elaborate game of geopolitical strategy, ISIS caliphate, terrorist provocations, and global markets, Putin launches guerrilla warfare under the sea with the use of Seaborne Spetsnaz and submarines.  He knows his plan will only work if the attacks are perpetrated by Islamic extremist.  A war in which Putin has the ultimate advantage of stealth and surprise.
