About the Author:

Born in New Jersey near the Hudson River and currently landlocked in Morristown, New Jersey, the author, a physician, descends from the original settlers of Block Island.  A writer of a few short stories and numerous professional articles, THE WEATHER HOUSE is the author's debut novel.  A second novel is in preparation.

Description:

The Weather House is part international espionage, part mystery, part adventure, and part historical with a focus on relationships, specifically between two teenage sisters.  The theme of needing to find relevance in one’s life, regardless of what happens, may sound simple but trying to ‘matter’, as the two sisters discover, is not an easy task.  The author sets the novel on Block Island and Brooklyn, knowing each location exceedingly well, and treats each location as if they are characters in the story.

Everyone knows Brooklyn.  But in 1916 Block Island, seventeen miles off the coast of Rhode Island, was probably more familiar to European explorers -- and the German Navy -- than it was to most Americans. 

Just months before the US enters World War I, a close knit family working together at Block Island’s United States Weather Station try to identify the motives of three strangers who suddenly appear on their Island.  Even before the first murder occurs, the Weather House crew realizes they need reinforcements, but who can they trust?  They contact the Office of Naval Intelligence – in 1916 the most sophisticated intelligence agency in the United States Government -- yet it remains up to the Block Islanders to clearly identify the true objectives of these men, which, if carried out, will decidedly change the course of our nation’s history.

With the two sisters as the focal point, The Weather House explores relationships and communication, motives, failure, hidden agendas and loss, and touches on the purpose of life … by introducing the reader to characters who are determined not to fail.  Set at a time when death and loss are still a routine aspect of the fabric of an isolated island life, the novel reminds us that unrelenting determination is a formidable companion and is within reach of all of us.

About the Author:

Heaven's Not a Place is a story very close to my heart. I fell in love with the characters as I was writing about them. I lived and breathed them for so long in the writing process that I almost felt that they were my "other children."  Their heartache was my heartache, and their triumph was mine as well. In this tender story of love, I hope that my readers fall in love with the characters of Annie, Jack and Jenna--just as I did.

 

Thank you for reading,

Description:

It's summertime, and Annie Harrison suffers the plight of many single parents—she misses her daughter. While she is struggling to adjust to Jenna’s absence, the tragic death of a dear friend delivers another cruel blow. Then her dreams begin—dreams that are both haunting and intriguing.  And a series of strange incidents occur—each of them making Annie question her beliefs about life, death and the muted line in between.  Can her friend really be reaching out to her with an after-death message?  Or is grief loosening her grip on reality?

Heaven's Not a Place is a different kind of love story. And it also has tantalizing touches of the supernatural.  There are many different kinds of love...but the one most compelling is the love that transcends space and time...

Fernando Sobenes
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.

Jesse A. Mayfield
About the Author:

Hi, my name is Jesse A. Mayfield and I'm an actor, singer, writer and teacher. I've appeared on Broadway, on the Lincoln Center stage and at the Kennedy Center and in many concert venues around the world. As the former Artistic Director of the famed "Paul Robeson Theater" in New York, I produced and starred in many notable productions, among them, "A Raisin in the Sun," "Ceremonies in Dark Old Men" and "Of Mice and Men." I've spent much of the last decade touring in various stage productions. Always a New Yorker at heart, I presently reside in Los Angeles where I teach acting. I recently launched Greedy Reedy Productions to develop projects for television and film and my company, Lamarr Talent & Literary Management represents and guides the careers of young, aspiring entertainment professionals. 

My touching memoir titled "Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye...a coming of age story," chronicles my early years growing up in Brooklyn, New York during the Civil Rights era. It tells of me being one of the first African-Americans bused to a White school when New York City started busing for school integration. My years in predominately White, Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn were both character building and life changing and laid the foundation for my becoming the man I am today. This story is told through the eyes of a precocious and intelligent little boy and it's told with humor and love.

It is my sincerest hope that while reading this book you will get a strong sense of the love I had for my family, my community and the new world of friendships that embraced me. Being "away from my mother's watchful eye" offered me a new-found freedom but it also demanded that I grow up quickly, keep my wits about me and utilize everything I'd ever learned. This is a "nostalgic" and "feel good" story that will take you on a journey through a crazy time in our nation's history and make you laugh, cry, think and then laugh some more.

Enjoy!

Description:

"Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye...a coming of age story" is a memoir that tells about the author, Jesse A. Mayfield, growing up in Brooklyn, New York during the turbulent, dangerous and racially charged 1960s. When the New York City Board of Education implemented busing to further integrate New York public schools, Jesse was one of the first African-Americans bused from the inner-city to a White school in lily-White Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn in the Fall of 1965. Since all young Blacks were expected to be militant and "down with the revolution," Jesse was viewed as being a "traitor," "Uncle Tom" and "house nigger" for going to school with "Whitey." Surprisingly, he found peace, friendship and acceptance in the most unlikely of places; the White community he'd been warned to view with fear and distrust.

This entertaining, uplifting and inspiring story will take you on a magical and nostalgic journey to an exciting time gone by and you'll relive history as you revisit President Kennedy's election and assassination, the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, President Lyndon B. Johnson, the Vietnam War and the healing effects of the Beatles' music on a post-assassination America.

Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye is a not the usual unfortunate and sad story about busing that we've all heard but instead, it's an inspiring story of one boys journey as he navigates between two distinct worlds forging friendships, excelling and forming a unique perception of the world. As one reviewer so aptly put it, "Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye is the epitome of all coming of age stories."

I love all kinds of books, and enjoy writing in many genres. So far, I've published two books, one about modern vampires, and one a medieval fantasy. I love a good sword-swinging adventure, and, if it's funny, so much the better. A deep love of Terry Pratchett style comedy inspired Misadventures in the Art of Chivalry, at least to some extent. A sequel will probably be forthcoming, but my whims may take me somewhere else first.

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.

It’s old fashioned boardwalk and all American vibe has kept me coming back for decades, now with a husband and a teenager, who has spent almost every summer of his life there.

Now we live in Rome and I have fallen in love with the Amalfi Coast. Luckily it is a very easy drive from Rome and we have been able to take many trips during our almost a decade living in Italy. I have spent the most time in Positano and Capri, but explore a little more of this incredible part of Italy with each trip south.

"Castel’s and Mendry’s relationship is as intriguing as the journeys they must take to protect the innocent. Emily Veinglory pens a fascinating fantasy tale which spins its web as tightly as if it were a realistic contemporary piece. Once again, her gift for characterization is apparent, with deeply-realised characters to whom the reader is immediately drawn." [TwoLips Reviews]

Description:
In the future mankind has spread itself across the stars…and promptly divided itself into dozens of competing nations. Some things never change. The worst of it all can be found in the Chaos Quarter, a hive of failed states, petty tyrants, pirates, and religious extremists. Into this mess comes Rex Vahl. Formerly a pilot for the democratic Free Terran Commonwealth, Rex was scape-goated for the death of a power commander’s son. As a result he is basically given a suicide mission: cross the Chaos Quarter and investigate the mysterious space beyond. Problem is that nobody who has entered that space has ever returned. Rumors abound of a reclusive super-power, so addicted to genetic engineering that they can no longer really be considered human. When Rex discovers that all the rumors are true he finds himself being chased cross the galaxy by two overpowering warships. What does he have on his side? His co-pilot is a former prostitute with tiger-striped skin. His gunner is a traitorous ex-nobleman wanted by his former countrymen. His engineer is a laid-back cyborg exiled for asking one too many questions about God. Add in a woman genetically engineered to have no free will and you get his motley crew. Armed with only a souped-up freighter, Rex and his band of out-casts must out-fight, out-fox, and out-run their enemies if they are to make it back to the Commonwealth, and reveal the terrible truth of what lies beyond the CHAOS QUARTER…

Co-Author Colby Huffman:

In addition to being the founder of TourXcel, and U.S. patent holder of the Hank Haney Swing Band, Huffman's students have won over 65 national and international championships under his guidance. He was named Indiana's youngest ever PGA Teacher of the Year in 2012, and has been honored with recognition by Golf Digest in its selection of "Best Teachers State by State 2013+2014."

Colby served as a lead instructor for the Hank Haney IJGA from 2007-2009. Prior to that, he worked with Gary Gilchrist at the IJGA (as Director of Training) as well as the David Leadbetter Golf Academy. During his time at the IJGA, Huffman worked with many top-ranked juniors and LPGA standouts such as Stephanie Meadow, as well as In-Kyung Kim and Song-Hee Kim who both have been ranked in the top-15 in the LPGA Rolex World Ranking. Song-Hee Kim, in particular, became the youngest woman to ever win a professional golf event in the United States (2006, prior to Lexi Thompson).

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.

Huffman is a PGA Class-A member, a Certified Titleist Performance Institute Golf Fitness Instructor, a Certified Club-fitter, and a Performance Enhancement Specialist.  He is the only PGA Teacher of the Year from any PGA Section in the nation who is also designated as a Certified Consultant by the Applied Association of Sport Psychology (AASP), the international professional organization of sport and exercise psychology. He is currently completing his PhD specializing in Sport Psychology.

A four-time Academic All-Big Ten student-athlete at Purdue University, Colby received the USAA All-American Scholar Award in 1999. He graduated from Purdue where he studied kinesiology and biomechanics, before earning a Master’s degree from Purdue in 2001 in sport business management and marketing.

Following his time in college, Huffman spent time playing professionally on the PGA Tour de Las Americas, Golden Bear Tour, Hurricane Tour and the Maverick Tour, where he competed against many of today’s PGA Tour Members.

A native of Indianapolis, Ind., Huffman is a graduate of Carmel High School and lives on the north side of Indianapolis with his wife and two children.

 

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.

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.

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.

You are getting the only golf training information in the world that discusses peak performance with this much science, research, and experience behind it.

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.
