About the Author:

Writing is like breathing, if you're a writer you have to write.

I wrote my first novel when I was seven! All about a pony, a creature I wanted to own. I continued with my first publication the next year in the school magazine. After that I published poems and stories regularly in the school magazine, and went onto publish poetry mainly in my univesity journals.

Then life got in the way. Travelling to be more precise. I think I have visited, worked, or travelled around everywhere except South America and India. They are next on my list.

Now I am getting older there is more time for writing. I have lots to say, but perhaps not so many years to say them in.

 

Description:

'Blokes Muddling Through' is a collection of six short stories about men coping or not coping with their worlds.

BLURB
Suddenly you’re a fifty year old male, hitting middle age. Time to ease up, spend more time with friends and family. Retirement - dread thought - looms. The hard work’s done, the future’s secure. Or is it? And where’s the family anyway? The wife has spread her wings, works, has hobbies. The children have grown up on you, turned into strangers. Your friends have moved on. How do you make contact again? How do you sort out the changes in your life. Here are six men who tried to make sense of their middle aged lives in their own peculiar ways.
 

The stories have all been published in magazines and journals in Australia, Canada, the USA and the UK. One editor, who published most of them in the UK, called them my grumpy old men stories but it's not that the blokes are grumpy, they're just trying to cope with what the world flings at them in their own unique ways. Their ways might not be yours or mine but they are interesting to read about. Would you do as they do?

ISABELLA MORGIA DI VICARI
About the Author:
Isabella Morgia di Vicari is first generation American born of Italian decent, with a large Italian famiglia from Calabria and Trieste Italia. Growing up in Orlando, Florida and, raised in her famiglia's restaurant businesses has taught Isabella many life lessons including the wonderful culture of food. Isabella's true teacher was her Nonna Isabella, her namesake, who lived with their famiglia her entire life. It was in her cucina, with Nonna's influence that she lived and breathed all the wonderful Italian traditions that she embraces and shares today. Isabella's invaluable training came the "old fashion way", in the famiglia's kitchen and in the many successful restaurants they owned and operated. Those traditions bring the Morgia di Vicari famiglia back to the table where it all happens for them. It is Isabella's heart's desire to "Bring the Famiglia Back to their Table" and back to their roots and traditions. Isabella has recorded several cooking segments on local television and has appeared on several PBS stations all in the hopes of having her own television show one day.
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."

M. Bennett Crosby
About the Author:

As a child, I didn’t care much about reading or writing.  I was a slow reader and one of those left-handed writers that teachers in the late 1950’s thought should be taught to write right-handed. My penmanship looked as confused as I felt and I shied away from anything literary for decades.

My fascination with people took hold when I was twelve years old, delivering newspapers to every corner of my small home town. It was often the people that society tended to shy away from, that I found great joy in spending time with.

As a teen in the late 1960’s, I was confronted with my inability to change my sexual orientation. I’d known from an early age that I wasn’t like the other boys. I felt my pleas to God were unanswered. It never dawned on me that maybe I was exactly who I was created to be.

Over the years, I crossed this nation and back again, living in large cities and tiny rural towns. I’ve held jobs from sweeping floors to corporate management. Several years ago, in recovery from chemical dependency, I began to use writing as a tool for self-discovery as well as self-expression. I slowly came to love writing stories, largely to see what the characters might do next. Many stories later, Franklin was born.

Description:

Franklin Harrison is seventeen years old and about to enter his senior year of high school. Tormented by the teachings of his church that condemn him, he is desperate to change who he is. Franklin struggles to conform to what he has been taught is God’s will for him. This change that he seeks never comes.

When he loses the small solace he found in his love of photography and abandons his camera, any glimmer of hope slips away. He can no longer face the God he believes in or himself.

With all hope gone, the miracle of grace that is extended to him opens the door to a journey that soothes his soul. It leads Franklin to discover, and then share, the love and beauty that is within and around him.

Two Malaysian airliners meet disaster within a few months.  At the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Vladimir Putin contemplates his next move after the United States fails to deliver $1,000,000,000 that Putin deems belongs to him.  A few days later, an airliner mysteriously disappears—believed to be at the bottom of the sea.  Four months later, with the situation deteriorating in Ukraine, economic sanctions placed on Russia, and the fear of falling oil prices, Putin orders the shoot-down of MH17 flight over Ukraine.  David Joseph jolts readers by linking MH370 and MH17—the real-life parallels are shocking!

Sydney Paige McCutcheon
About the Author:

Hi, my name is Sydney Paige McCutcheon, and I wrote the first draft of "Henry" the summer after I graduated high school. 

After years of edits and sending out queries letters, I chose to go the self-publishing route believing this is the way, at least for this first book, to go. I am excited to have it published and thankful God gave me connections who told me of LiberWriter when I wanted to get a Kindle version for my book (it is also available in Paperback on Amazon.com). 

The process was very easy and I would reccommend authors to use their website for creating ebooks!

The story for "Henry" I think has a different twist than common boy-meets-girl-type and I'm sure people like a change up in books from time to time. Readers meet Prue where her life changes, and follow her journey as she deals with the loss of her closest friend and sister, and also deals with her new roommate, Henry. 

Henry was a natural character to see, especially for such a complicated man. At least, Henry would say he's complicated and Prue would counterback that he's not as complicated as he likes to think - or as much as he likes to make other people think. And of course this automatic interaction between them makes me smile, remembering the days of writing their conversations. 

I love Prue. She's spunky, heartfelt, and says things others wish to say. 

I love Henry, too. He's fantastic, and dramatic, and has emotion even when being indifferent and dry. He says things without filter, too - good or bad. Together, these two can create quite a clash - but how will it end? The truth goes both ways, and for Henry and Prue, it could separate them forever. 

I hope this blurb has piqued your interest! "Henry" is a book full of joy, laughs, tears, and more.

Description:

After witnessing her sister's murder, Prue Collins is sent to a small town outside Astoria, Oregon, under the protection of the most unlikely guardian.

Rude and sarcastic, Ex-Officer Henry Clay wants nothing to do with his new roommate and doesn't mask any hard feelings, only secrets. His wheelchair gives Prue a glimpse of his tragic past and she can't fight curiosity as more clues come her way, opening her eyes to the true stranger she's been sent to live with—and possibly, meant to help save.

But the truth is like a loose string on an old shirt—you pull at it, and the entire fabric could come undone. As the trial looms closer, Prue will soon have to go back home. Will she leave well enough alone, or risk everything, even her own heart, to know the truth?

Description:

This is the first comparative study on political parties in Southeast Asia covering eight out of the ten ASEAN countries. Feudal Brunei Darussalam has no parties and for Laos we could not find a scholar willing or allowed to join our group.
The book is dedicated to anyone interested or active in party politics in the region.

Southeast Asia is an economic power house of sorts with fledgling and often volatile political systems. Political parties and their leaders make decisions on behalf of more than 600 million people with a far reaching impact also on other parts of the world. This is why understanding the driving forces in and behind Southeast Asia’s political parties is important.

This book provides a fresh look into organization and internal mechanisms of the main political parties, how they function on the ground, how they hold together, and how their leadership systems work. Internal competition and candidate selection, campaign strategies and party finances, money politics and career opportunities are a special focus in the eight country chapters.

While showing the difference between classical party models and the reality on the ground in Southeast Asia, the book provides broad information on party politics in the region, adding a practical view to the vast and often rather theory-loaded scholarly literature. It intends to reach out to party members and activists, journalists and other political observers, and to anybody interested in Southeast Asian politics.

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.

A while later, Cole is stunned to receive a one line cry for help from his one great love. He is face to face with his past and an uncertain future as he tries to find her estranged daughter. 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.

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.

Camille
About the Author:
Camille U. Adams is a poet. She was born and raised in Trinidad and presently resides in New York. Camille holds a bachelor's degree in Creative Writing from Hunter College CUNY and is currently in the second year of an MFA Creative Writing programme.
Description:
Unveiling The Orisas is Camille U. Adams' first book of poetry. The poems within this collection teach readers about the Orisas: the role they play in the lives of their children, their purposes, their personalities, and that which they govern while also illustrating the relationship the poet herself has with these deities.
 
Sometimes reverent and sometimes railing, sometimes fearful and sometimes faith-filled, these poems provide an intimate look into one woman's spiritual journey.
 
To read this griot's poetic narrations about Home: Home - Guinea Land; Home - Africa; Home - Trinidad; Home - her Self; about family, about friends, about partnership, and about her guides is to unveil alongside her the positioning of the Orisas in all these aspects of her life...and to unveil subsequently their manifestations in one's own.

Carol Mays, Richard Bachtold, Nina Andersen
About the Author:

Carol Mays has resided in seven states and sought truth through many religious and philosophical traditions. Throughout her life, she has been strongly drawn toward beauty in all its forms. She has been writing poetry for 47 years and has published several other books, including Poems of Peace and Renewal and Stardust, Shadows, and Secrets.

Richard Bachtold has passionately followed his calling to poetry for over 30 years. He lives a simple lifestyle on a beloved two-acre homestead in rural Hardwick, Massachusetts. For the most part, inspiration for his creative work comes from the beautiful natural landscape which surrounds him. For many years, he has independently studied the poetical process and the poetical heritage. He has self-published four books of poetry, the most recent compilation being Poems of the One.

Nina Andersen is a poet who's search for truth and God has led her into realms of spiritual experiences, leading to spiritual knowledge and soul enlightenment. The visions and intensity of her experiences are expressed through her poems, in her desire to bring spirituality and enlightenment to others. Nina lives in Hardwick, Massachusetts, in a yellow-windowed house, surrounded by nature, flowers, and woodland. She is a poet, mystic, and therapist, and she teaches Critical Thinking and Problem Solving at a community college in Worcester.

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.

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?

TinaBrescanu
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. 

Description:

Do you dare to follow your heart when school tells you to follow the rules?

When Milla is sent(enced) to six years in secondary school her unrecognised school-itis gets worse.

“It’s a real disease,” Milla insists who has survived early puberty and two uncompleted suicides due to being forced to become who she isn’t.

“No, I’m not bullied, sometimes it’s “just” school.”

But she can’t let her parents go to prison again. She meets Sky, a homeschooled, disabled boy who self medicates on laughter and Sunny, a girl of unusual origin who insists she’s Milla’s guardian angel. “You’re more powerful than you know,” she says and Milla listens as the animals whose powers she has always been fascinated by suddenly comes to life through her.

Together with her Irish twin brother, Torsten, the foursome take on school in a battle to regain ownership of their own lives.

In this often outlandish story, four teens already of age, fight against school as the only option to journey through the start of life, but violence, punishments and threats can change minds, will it change theirs?

Will Milla be allowed to become who she is or made to fall back into line and follow the mass schooling?
