After growing up in the unique town of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Susan Moore Jordan attended the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati as a vocal performance major. While in Cincinnati, she was on the administrative staff of the Edgecliff Academy of Fine Arts and the Cincinnati Shakespeare Festival. In 1971 she moved with her late husband and three children to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Jordan established a private voice studio a few years later. She began directing musical theater productions for community and high school in 1984, and has directed over eighty shows. She published her first novel, How I Grew Up, in October, 2013. Eli’s Heart is her second novel.
In the nineteen fifties, ELI LEVIN, a brilliant teenage pianist born with a serious heart defect and not expected to live past the age of thirty, meets KRISSY PORTER on a visit to a small town in the Southeast. They play piano duets, talk about baseball, eat banana splits. A budding romance is ended by interference from Eli’s family, but they find their way back to each other three years later.
They marry on Krissy’s twentieth birthday while they are both college students. The music they share is a vital part of their life together. Once he begins his career, Eli’s rise in the music world is meteoric.
Although they are devoted—and intensely passionate—from the beginning, the couple must struggle with never knowing when the various repairs to Eli’s heart might give out.
Personality disorder... What a tired and over-used topic, right? However; have you ever heard a story from the perspective of emerged identities? This is a perfect chance to see a picture from the eyes of 'the disease' itself, without ridiculous superhuman abilities and maniacal multiple homicides. A tale of a totally average guy's recently arisen 'dark-side', with an unusual mix of little comedy, many disappointments and Yuri's snow vodka.

Bella, is the story of a loving Hispanic family, who live in central Florida.

You will be astounded at the simplicity of the big picture, while recognising the profundity of this glimpse of the Truth. You will begin this journey of discovery in the timelessness before the universe began and will reach today, this moment in time, in a state of clarity about how to live your daily life with purpose and fulfilment.
Note: This book is a spiritual book, and not a religious book. As you might appreciate, there is a difference.
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.
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.
I've had a lifetime of pleasure in writing short stories. I wrote The Geode Room so that I could bring some of my favorite characters to a setting that would allow me to more fully develop their personalities and understanding of life. I'm very interested in understanding people's feelings, and learning to know more about the interconnectedness they share with others in the development of their lives. Reader input has taken this process full circle for me, providing insights into both my storyline, and the private stories of readers, too.
The Geode Room has provided me with a setting to share the wisdom I've learned throughout my life. It's a fun and interesting story that encourages readers to become deeply involved with both the characters and setting. Many readers of the first edition of this book have contacted me to share their satisfaction with having known my characters in this lengthy multigenerational perspective on their lives.
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.
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.

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.

I am a retired Marketing and Sales professional living in Silicon Valley since 1978. I spent more than 25 years working for some of the largest and most successful companies in the business of Information Technology. In 1992 I was sent to Moscow on expat assignment and worked there for more than 2 years. Although my novel is historical fiction, it is inspired by the events I witnessed in that amazing time of great hopes and dreams.
In 1992, the CEO of a successful Silicon Valley company that invented networked computing came to believe Yeltsin’s reforms will attract large flows of foreign capital to Russia. He thought Russia will be a new large market for his company. Mark Valli, an employee experienced in marketing company product line overseas spoke Russian. He was sent to Moscow on an expat assignment. An office was open, and a team was put in place. Mark spent lots of effort chasing the deals that proved elusive. Great many Western investors did come to Moscow in 1992. It became a cauldron of corruption, intrigue, organized crime, prostitution, and conspiracies against foreigners. SVR, the successor to KGB, deployed their pretty honeypot operators and compromised foreign businessmen. Many lost their investments, and some lost their lives. The Russian market was a mirage. But Mark did find a gem that was real. Cut and polished in Scotland. Her name was Anna Brown…
Expat is a work of historical fiction inspired by real events.
I live with a crazy family and a crazy dog, all of whom I love dearly. My interests are wide-ranging, and I hope my writing can help me pay for my expanding number of hobbies.

Athene Arrington’s new house is perfect, except for one little thing: There’s a vampire living in the basement. His name is Brandon, and he insists he still owns the place. One heated argument and a death threat later, it’s decided that Athene can stay.
In spite of Brandon’s constant teasing, his insistence that Athene is not as nice as she looks, and his peculiar diet, she's still attracted to him. Torn between normal and Brandon, she has to decide what she really wants. Should she settle into a regular life, or follow deeper feelings? Will Brandon let her live, kill her, or turn her into a vampire? Not even he knows.
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.
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.
‘Matt Chase’s descriptive powers really conjure up the sights and sounds of India.’ Andrew Watson.
‘Matt Chase’s way of introducing a subject is so graphic and magnetic…the reader walks beside him as he takes you from one scenario to the other’. David Bachop.
‘The Golden Thread is a very clever piece of non-fiction writing that reads like a novel. Why not join Matt in the back of a rickety rickshaw as you travel through India. A wonderful tale of twists and turns filled with delight and tension. I challenge you not to enjoy this book!’ Sharon Ball, Editor.
The Golden Thread is written by a true Dream Weaver. It draws you into his world with precision, succinctness and a touch of magic.
Once you have stepped onto the path with Matt Chase and spent a life enhancing month in India with him, diving from one synchronistic happening to the next – you will never want to leave.
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 ...
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.
Will is married and the father of 5 children. He was born and raised in Oklahoma and continues to call the Sooner state home! Will enjoys spending time with his family on their small farm, and even playing the occasional video game!
The year is 2025, the nation is in turmoil and the quest to save the human race from extinction is at hand. A government experiment gone bad results in a mutated virus that attacks most of the animal kingdom and turns them from mild, non aggressive beings into raging, vicious, monsters! A small group of survivors, led by a courageous young Nathan Lee, combat these wild beasts, while trying to bring the only person who can stop this insanity, to safety.
I'm a housewife with an imagination that is always on the move. I created the beginning of this book while I was working in a factory, sewing covers for theater seats. I would 'write' in my mind while I sewed, and then put it to paper when I got home from work. An active imagination is a wonderful tool for making a long day pass quickly.
When we choose to step into the inner realm of imagination we remove the limits placed upon us by the ‘real’ world. The characters in Willow Crossing find out that the imagination is a powerful thing, when they use it to escape their own realities.
This is a fun, imaginative read. It was written with middle-graders in mind, but college students and even adults have said it's a fun read, because it forced them to use their imagination.
Have you ever had a dream where you could not move, get away, stay safe, think clearly? Sure you have. Have you experienced any of those things in reality central? Have you ever been drawn towards a sixteen foot monster covered in barnacles and seaweed who is beckoning to you to come closer as it sounds its gong powered by the scend of the sea? Well, I grew up on the Jersey Shore and faced that monster off the mouth of Shark River between Avon-By-The-Sea and Belmar NJ numerous times. It is the feeling of quiet desperation with a musketeer flair that I like to write about from the the foggy mists of New England to the sun bleached shores of Florida. I now have time to write now about these things. Book 2, "SWIRLS AND SHADOWS," A Simon O'Rourke Adventure, is under construction and new challenges will abound for our intrepid characters and, yes, the evildoers as well. Book 1, "Thirteen Pieces" is available in Kindle format NOW on Amazon. Great Summer reading awaits YOU !!!
Sincerely, Rob Seas
This is a tale about my fictional hero and probably my alter ego all rolled into one, Simon O'Rourke and his friends and enemies. Simon is experiencing from time to time some rather strange, some would say otherworldly, happenings that really can't be explained away very easily, at least not in a way that would let you sleep better at night. Don't worry, Simon is as baffled as everybody else, except probably Zed. Who is Zed? That is, Indeed, a worthy question. This tale is centered in New England but meanders back to Florida with a side trip to a Cuban dungeon and is very suitable to curl up with on a rainy day or a day when you want a respite from the terrible tube.
Join Simon who is doing his best to figure things out along with you.......
"Then from the lonely distance comes a sad and ghostly sound; 'Tis tie Shadow Phantom that is calling, like the baying of a hound........."
As a teenage author, I am well aware of the struggles teenagers have on a daily basis. Taking the Course is meant to be an insight into the teenage mind, centered around the game of golf. Not only was my book written by a teenager, it was mainly edited by teenagers as well. If you would like to see what we are capable of, I encourage you to pick up a copy and find out.
