About the Author:

 

The story draws heavily from my various careers in publishing, media, and academia. Several of my screenwriting instructors have reviewed drafts, including Tal McThenia (Gotham Writers, NYC). Tal writes: “What comes roaring through, each and every scene, is not just a sharp wit and an ear/eye for emotional nuance… but a heartfelt connection with the protagonist and her struggle.”

I’ve written professionally for a national audience for many years. Publications include children’s books for HarperCollins, a book about how technology can help struggling readers and writers ("Literacy Online, Heinemann), and an educational book for Harvard Education Publishers that I am co-authoring with an award-winning teacher in the U.K. (see www.juliemwood.com). I’ve also been on the faculty at Harvard University, an experience that offers endless material for fiction writers. 

The locations serve as characters in and of themselves. Those who share my affection for Boston will appreciate the scenes that take place at the Copley Plaza Hotel, Fenway Park (with God) and Johanna's climb to the top of the Citco sign. This is the city my ancestors settled in three generations ago, driven out of Ireland by the Potato Famine. It's my tribute to them.

 

Description:

 

NOTES FROM HELL’S KITCHEN, an update of the classic tale of Faust, is a romantic comedy/satire about an aspiring media diva, Dr. Johanna Lucky, who must find a way out of the pact she’s made with the Devil or else civilization as we know it will descend into a modern-day version of Hell.

Hell, as we come to know it, is a result of Johanna’s invention—“Thrill TV.” This entertainment experience is so seductive that people lose their souls as they succumb to its promise of wish fulfillment––regardless of the cost.

God arranges a meeting with Johanna to tell her she is furious about her pact with the Devil and insists that she destroy it. Johanna does. But the fallout of this take down wreaks havoc with the Devil, her investors, and her “deep throat” at MIT--the mastermind behind “Thrill TV.”

The location for NOTES FROM HELL’S KITCHEN spans New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, the glittery world of the high-tech industry, and Boston’s Beacon Hill and Fenway Park.

By the end of the screenplay we’ve seen Johanna have it all, lose it, and win it back by doing exactly what the Devil has forbidden--falling in love with Barney, the man whose heart she has routinely trampled.

Description:

Read The Defiance (Brilliant Darkness, #2), the highly anticipated sequel to THE SCOURGE (Brilliant Darkness, #1), a 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award Finalist! THE FIRE SISTERS (Brilliant Darkness #3 coming fall 2015!)

It hasn’t been long since Fennel, a Sightless Groundling, and Peree, her Lofty Keeper, fell in love and learned the truth: the Scourge, and their world, is not what it seems. 

Fenn and Peree are determined to guide their people to the protected village of Koolkuna, but first they must convince them that everything they believe is a lie. An impossible task, especially when someone seems hell-bent to try anything—even animal sacrifice and arson—to destroy the couple’s new bond and crush the frail truce between the Groundlings and the Lofties. Not everyone wants to uproot their lives in the forest, and those who stay behind will be left terribly vulnerable. 

Fenn and Peree’s resolve to be together despite their people’s disapproval, and the constant threat of the Scourge’s return, pushes both groups to the breaking point. Unable to tell friend from foe, Fenn must again decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to ensure the people of the forest’s future. 
Only this time, the price of peace may be too high to bear. 

Praise for THE DEFIANCE (Brilliant Darkness #2): 
“I absolutely LOVED The Defiance! No, I more than loved it! It was breathtaking, intense, romantic, suspenseful . . . the list could go on and on!” 
-- ARC review 

Praise for THE SCOURGE (Brilliant Darkness #1): 
“Lovable and relatable heroine? Check. Swoon-worthy, kick-butt hero? Check. Compelling romance that makes your heart melt and toes curl? Check. Captivating story and fascinating world? Check. Eagerly anticipating the next book? Check, check, check.”

Illuminating The Darkness
A straight forward and effective solution to the problems of depression, stress, and anxiety.

Are You Ready For A Change?

Every day there are new approaches and drugs to help people overcome the emotional pain of depression, stress, and anxiety. More people are being treated for these than ever before. So, one would presume emotional health and happiness would be at an all-time high. But you know that isn’t the case, not even close. In fact, the only thing that seems to be gaining prevalence faster than antidepressants is depression itself!

Is there a way of escape? Is there a different approach from the failed strategies most often presented in self-help books and the doctor’s office? Is there hope for me? Can I live a life of real peace and joy?

Yes. Lasting joy and peace can be yours!

This is no idle promise from some new-fangled philosophy or rediscovered ancient herb. This truth has the authority of the Bible, the simplicity of fruit on a vine, and the track-record of many generations who have discovered the real source of mental and emotional health.

This is not another strategy to try, rather it is the genuine truth about why people suffer from depression, stress, and anxiety, and how those pains can be replaced with joy, peace, and patience.

The truths presented here are…

  • Easy to understand
  • Practical in their everyday application
  • Powerfully effective in both the short and long term 
  • Proven


This book is both a challenge to everything you have heard about the cause and cure of emotional distress, and a real offer of hope. Learn here what thousands of others have learned and, enjoy an enduring harvest of the fruit of real joy.

Read THE SCOURGE (Brilliant Darkness, #1,) a finalist for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award, THE DEFIANCE (Brilliant Darkness #2 also available now), and THE FIRE SISTERS (Brilliant Darkness #3 coming fall 2015!)

Seventeen-year-old Groundling, Fennel, is Sightless. She's never been able to see her lush forest home, but she knows its secrets. She knows how the shadows shift when she passes under a canopy of trees. She knows how to hide in the cool, damp caves when the Scourge comes. She knows how devious and arrogant the Groundlings' tree-dwelling neighbors, the Lofties, can be. 

And she's always known this day would come—the day she faces the Scourge alone. 

The Sightless, like Fenn, are mysteriously protected from the Scourge, the gruesome creatures roaming the forests, reeking of festering flesh and consuming anything—and anyone—living. A Sightless Groundling must brave the Scourge and bring fresh water to the people of the forest. Today, that task becomes Fenn's. 

Fenn will have a Lofty Keeper, Peree, as her companion. Everyone knows the Lofties wouldn’t hesitate to shoot an arrow through the back of an unsuspecting Groundling like Fenn, but Peree seems different. A boy with warm, rough hands who smells like summer, he is surprisingly kind and thoughtful. Although Fenn knows his people are treacherous, she finds herself wanting to trust him. 

As their forest community teeters on the brink of war, Fenn and Peree must learn to work together to survive the Scourge and ensure their people’s survival. But when Fenn uncovers a secret that shatters her truths, she’s forced to decide who and what to protect—her people, her growing love for Peree, or the elusive dream of lasting peace in the forest. 

A tale of star-crossed lovers, strange creatures, and secretive, feuding factions, THE SCOURGE introduces readers to a rich and exciting new world where nothing is as it seems.

About the Author:

My book is the culmination of a personal 20-year spiritual journey. As happens with major shifts in life, I was catapulted onto this journey by my husband's life-threatening illness. I was terrified and had no place to turn. In situations like this, this is when most people turn to God,  Trouble was God and I weren't on speaking terms--I had been raised with the hell and damnation of the Baptist church and I had decided God wasn't such a nice guy. So, I found my comfort in books, New Thought books that suggested ways of living that were completely foreign to me.  Books that told me I could create my life however I wanted and that, in fact, I was entirely and solely responsible for my life and my circumstances. I began to practice the things I was learning and they were changing my life in significant ways.  I learned that what you think about, you bring about.  I learned that the Universe (my term for God) was for me and not against me. I learned that the Law of Attraction was a magnificent tool I could use to bring to me everything I wanted.

So, given my personal experiences, I wanted to share what I had learned with others so that they too could create a beautiful life.

Description:

My book outlines the steps I have learned in my own life that lead to success and happiness.  We each create our lives either by default (whatever happens, happens) or deliberately. I show you in my book how you can deliberately create your life using your thoughts, your feelings, your intuition, your attitude toward gratitude and  visualization.. And, then last but not least, how to take action to actually create the life of your dreams.

About the Author:

Though I was born and raised on the island of Britain, and though my parents and all my ancestors as far back as I am aware, were born and raised on the island that invented the English language, English is my second language. It gives me the perspective of being both on the inside and on the outside of the world's most spoken language. In my native tongue,

These days I live in California, a Welshman married to an Apache, It's strange how the world turns and how, on this road of life we never know what lies around the next curve. Perhaps if we come to grips with the way we speak we may understand life a little better.

Or perhaps not.

Description:

The English language has an unusual style of expression. To insult or offend someone, sexual words are used. More than that, words with the same meaning are perfectly acceptable. Why is it acceptable to say "Posterior" but not "Ass"? This book explores the reasons and the history of English swearing and related obscenities.

Other chapters deal with such slips of the tongue as Spoonerisms; where you "Dish the washes" and Malapropisms; "He is a Civil Serpent"

With all the ways we have of misunderstanding each other, reading this short book may make you wonder how we manage to communicate. Perhaps we don't.

About the Author:

As a Feminist, I joined the Women's Movement in 1968.  Feminism is about how great it is to be a woman -- the Women's Movement addresses the many difficulties women cope with, including the nasty or non-use of the term Feminist until about three years ago.  My writing extends from personal study in Mythology, Archaeology and Anthropology with a final commitment to Anthroapology,  I am a cartoonist as well as a researcher and writer.  The cover of Learning By Heart is my original drawing and I would like to see it replicated because mothers and daughters need one another. This is my sixth e-book with the excellent assistance of LiberWriter.

Description:

LEARNING BY HEART, ​​COURAGEOUS GROWTH, GYNOCENTRIC EDUCATION is Factuality Fiction about the actual or psychological and cultural loss of daughters and it is about a returning.  The severance of the matrilineal bloodline of daughters and sons through the barbarian imposition of sons-in-law has been told more times than mother-in-law jokes.  I try to write Women's Fiction believing that emotion is women's preferred action -- and a relevant basis for action.  The emotional level is dramatized from an internal viewpoint; in other words, from the way women act OUT their feelings.

LEARNING BY HEART is also Historical Factuality Fiction that offers applicable heritage for modern families.  The story conforms to the known facts and assumed spirit of the historic period  (600 BCE), which was a climactic shift from gynocentric culture to patriarchal  conquest society -- to the politics and economics of city states, finally from trading empires to warring empires; and from visionary education to authoritative, even monolithic, disciplines; from ecstatic nature worship to the extremes of sexual prudery and eroticism.  The story centers on a single woman whose life and personality reflect these contrasts; however the many characters span generations and ethnicisities.

After the fall of Sikah-hara, Naqia, a lady of the royal harem flees to the school where she was briefly educated before her marriage -- to the famous school of the sibyls (Western Erythraea) said to have existed in the Ocean Stream, possibly on one of the Canary Islands.  Naqia has lost everything in the turmoil following the collapse of the most powerful Hittite empire.  Of her family, only a daughter may survive as a captive but, so pitiable is that fate, no mother could wish it.

Realizing her ownly wealth is her learning, Naqia plans to teach eme-Sal, the women's literary language (known to have evolved over the course of thousands of years in the harems of the east -- the gynocratic Womens Courts).  Naqia vows that her mind will be a tool not a torment, but from the day of her arrival at the school, memories assail her.  While Naqia tries to forget the past, the sibyls recognize her as a woman of the future; she is a lost daughter of Demeter carried off to Hades, and the sibyls believe she can return.  Others conclude that Naqia doesn't belong at the school.  She offends her oldest friend and clashes with the red bodu, a dominant student.

Yet in coming to the sibylline school on the volcanic island of Erythraea, Naqia and her seven-year-old servant girl, Tayet, have travelled to the home of the Nine Muses whose mother is Memory.  Amused and bemused among an international assembly of teachers and students, woman and girl learn by heart through the diverse talents of the muses to design the mind as a temple with the heart as an altar where a choice of memories are dedicated with which to grow up courageously and to grow old courageously.

When smallpox blinds Turlough O’Carolan, a young man from a poor family in late 17th century Ireland, he loses more than his sight. He loses Bridget Cruise, his beautiful bride-to-be, and all his hopes for the future.

But his patroness, who gave Turlough his education, refuses to let him succumb to self-pity, and sends him off to be schooled as a harper – a revered vocation in the long history of the Irish people.

The mystic, captivating music he creates with the harp – the symbol and soul of Ireland – restores Turlough’s hope, brings him great renown, and sets him on a new road.

But that road has unforeseen destinations, and Turlough is swept around a bend he was almost fated to travel. And two paths of the heart – long thought abandoned and overgrown by time – unexpectedly reappear, rise up, and cross again.

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:

Captivated by the eerie and a lover of things that go bump-in-the-night, I thoroughly enjoy embracing the fear that resides within. A scary story or movie is always at the top of my list.

Mace of the Apocalypse is my first complete novel which delves into the darkness within all of us. It is meant to shock and repulse at times, but also question who we really are or could become in an atmosphere of pure insanity. There is also a spiritual side to the story, because inside each of us is a struggle to come to terms with the true meaning of our existence.

Description:

A terrorist attack on a BART train has left San Francisco in the grip of a powerful toxin. Spreading like wildfire, its victims convulse violently until death overtakes them. With death, however, comes a new type of existence; more horrible and deadly than anyone could have imagined.

A small band of survivors led by Mason “Mace” Marconi, struggle to stay one step ahead of the raging infected as the virus spreads, battling not only the undead but a psychotic gang of drug-addicted teenagers intent on ruling the new forbidden landscape.

Father Jack McCann, one of their traveling companions, has gained possession of the only antidote for the toxin. Seeing it as a sign of God's grace, he has yet to discover the terrible side effects it contains.

The enemy is everywhere. The enemy is within. The zombie apocalypse has arrived.

About the Author:

This book extends from my love from and learning from other animals.  I believe other species often understand us better than we can understand them.-- perhaps because we fail to recognize our instincts by giving our instincts a lot of other names and diagnoses.  

I am a cartoonist as well as a writer and researcher.  This is my seventh book with the excellent assistance of Liberwriter.  The cover is one of a series of cartoons ("I know -- but he may grow up to do something wonderful") inspired by a caged gorilla in "a squalid little slum" of a city zoo.  There were changes and improvements made... BUT ...

 

Description:

Declaring "Only lovers survive; only lovers can," beautiful, compassionate Sorrel Starling gets a job equal to her ego.  She is chosen to be the second missionary sent to convert the primitive you-mens of the New World.  Inspired by the creed of Aphrotite and bearing a message of love for all creation and a governing Declaration of Interdependence, Sorrel lands on Megaton Island, also known as the Melting Pot, on a continent assumed to be recently erupted.  The new missionary forgives all -- youman frailty, youman chicany, youman youbris -- and practically invents the science of AnthroApology.

From the Pebblestons, near relatives of the Rockefellas, through Ken Pethem, Scopes Case and Polly Lovejoy, this Equal Animal Rights, romantic adventure story is a satiric portrayal of prejudice intending to test youmane conceits with mind twists of righteousness.

Description:

Skin isn’t the only game in town, but for plastic surgeon Marcus Armstrong, it’s his passion and his profit.

Sterling Falls’ grand opening isn’t going as planned. Instead she sees a gun-yielding man shot dead on her new jewelry showroom floor, and the woman that mortally wounded him? A bag lady.

Not the first two customers Sterling envisioned.

Feeling neglected by the man that brought her to Tucson, she enjoyed the attention of the handsome plastic surgeon. After all, what harm could there be in his flirtations? She had sold him an $80,000 engagement ring.

What woman could say no?

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.

About the Author:
Heather Abraham holds a BA and MA in Religious Studies from Georgia State University and is the founder and editor of the eMagazine Religion Nerd. Originally from Jeannette, Pennsylvania, she currently resides in Atlanta with her husband Teo and their three beloved dogs. The Bookie's Daughter is her first book.
 
Description:

A provocative and candid memoir spanning the first nineteen years of the author's life, The Bookie's Daughter resonates with elements of Sopranos and Running with Scissors-zany, violent, and oh-so-human. Written by Heather Abraham, The Bookie's Daughter is a wild ride through a childhood dominated by Big Al, the author's larger-than-life bookie father, and Bonnie, her trigger-happy alcoholic mother. Devoted to their family yet in thrall to their prodigious addictions, they recklessly plunged their daughters into a dangerous life of crime. Join The Bookie's Daughter in a perfect storm of adolescent angst, crime, and shocking adventures. Follow along as the author and her sister traverse a childhood where gambling, police raids, trials, public scorn, spitting Studda Bubbas, hitmen, IRA gunrunners, pedophiles, bodyguards, and midnight runs for illegal goods were considered routine. The narrative is twistedly entertaining, with a range of colorful wacky characters, as well as shockingly raw in its recognition of the destructive nature of dysfunctional family dynamics and parental addictions. Throughout a series of outrageous, oftentimes violent, misadventures, Abraham manages to conjure up loony vistas, thick with description and humorous acceptance

About the Author:

I wrote this book in high hopes of helping others who may suffer from the same emotional devistation that I had in losing my hair.  Doctors were of no help and felt I HAD to do something.  Friends were making comments and one even told me I was going to have to go get a wig soon. I was embarresed to go out in public and felt so self conscious.  I was desperate! I did countless hours of research and put together a lot of valuable information. What did I get in return for all of that? A FABULOUS thick head of beautiful hair. Hair that I get cut once every 3 weeks because it grows so fast! Never again will I take that for granted.  If you are experiencing hair loss this book can turn your life around.

RG Williams lives on the beautiful western slope of CO with her husband, 2 dogs, 2 cats, an old cow horse and a slightly demanding burro named Poncho (who if does not get his grain before sundown will remind her about it at approximately midnight.) :(

 

Description:

This book is filled with tons of valuable information to not only stop your hair from falling out but to start re-growing a GREAT new head of hair,"naturally of course."

Are you ready to get educated and get started on a beautiful new head of hair?

You will feel more confident, be happier and look "sexy" with your new head of beautiful hair!
