“Enter an incredibly detailed world…” -T. Snyder

New York Times Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Moth was a beautiful planet, the only one with wings — two great golden clouds suspended in space around it.

Here was a wide-open world for any venture a man might scheme. The planet attracted unwary travelers, hardened space-sailors, and merchant buccaneers — a teeming, constantly shifting horde that provided a comfortable income for certain quick-witted fellows like Flinx and his pet flying snake Pip. With his odd talents, the pickings were easy enough so that Flinx did not have to be dishonest … most of the time.

In fact, it hardly seemed dishonest at all to steal a starmap from a dead body that didn’t really need it anymore. But Flinx wasn’t quite smart enough. He should have wondered why the body was dead in the first place…

“Wow, Wow, Wow, Wow. That is all I can say about this book.” -Tina G.

#1 Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

When Helga Haswell becomes pregnant by a married SS officer who abandons her, she finds herself alone and desperate. She is afraid to tell her parents that she is pregnant out of wedlock, so her doctor suggests that Helga check into Heinrich Himmler’s home for the Lebensborn. This is a program, he explains, that has been instituted by the Nazi’s to create perfect Aryan babies. Since Helga is of pure German blood and the child’s father is an SS officer, she will be accepted, the doctor explains. Her child will have a good life because adoption is available only to the finest of Hitler’s Elite. Not only this, the doctor says but during her pregnancy, Helga will have the finest food and medical care available. And, instead of a life of shame, she will be honored for her efforts in producing a perfect Aryan child for the new world that Hitler is in the process of creating. Then after the baby is born, the Lebensborn will take the child and assume all future responsibilities releasing Helga to live her life without the burden of a fatherless offspring. In her desperation, all of this sounded perfect to Helga, that was of course before she felt life stir within her womb. However, by the time this occurred it was already too late. She had already moved into Steinhoring, home for the Lebensorn, and there was no possibility of turning back. The papers were signed. She could not escape. Hitler owned her unborn child.

On a cold day in January Helga’s little girl came into the world. But instead of being sheltered by her mother’s arms, she was torn away by the nurses at the home for the Lebensborn and thrust into a treacherous world where the very people sworn to protect her were not what they seemed. The little girl was growing, and she was amongst some of the cruelest people on earth and subjected daily to the ideology of the Third Reich. But when Hitler became convinced that he was indestructible and, went to war on two fronts dividing his army, Germany began to fall. The Nazi’s became fearful as America entered the war joining Churchill against them in the west, while Stalin a formidable enemy with the brutal Russian winters on his side, ripped them apart in the east. And so, the tables turned on the Third Reich. The cruel Nazi’s, who believed they could not be defeated were about to swallow their pride and surrender at the feet of the Allies. The superior race would prove to be inferior after all. Hitler’s elite would run for cover, some would commit suicide; some would be tried in Nuremberg for crimes against humanity, while others would escape with their tails tucked between their legs and head for South America or other friendly ports. But God had other plans for Helga’s tiny innocent child, who had been born on that January morning. The child’s life was about to change in a very strange but significant way. Instead of becoming whom and what the Nazi’s had hoped to create, this child would be befriended and nurtured by the most unexpected people.

Army Life: A Private’s Reminiscences of the Civil War – Amazon

“…a truthful representation of the marches, skirmishes, battles, associations, and camp-life of the private soldier.” -T G Buckspob

“Preparations for departure were rapidly made, and soon the plank was pulled in, the lines were cast off, the great engine began to throb with a fiery life, and we glided down the harbor, — I knew not where.”

Rev. Theodore Gerrish tells the story of American Civil War from the perspective of a private soldier in the 20th Maine Regiment.

The events and circumstances of the Civil War are told from the voice of the ranks.

The reminiscence begins with the private’s journey from Portland to Antietam, aboard the Merrimac.

Leaving home was hard. But Gerrish knew well enough that there was a need for his departure. Emotions pushed aside, he began his first voyage on the ocean.

A young man with a boyish vision. The journey was a new experience.

The private recalls his first few nights on the steamer and all the expected mishaps one expects on such a voyage.

Not before long, the private was placed in a brigade.

With every day that passed, the situation grew more serious and alarming, changing daily. Gerrish’s memories recount the fear and dread the soldiers faced.

Details of the Battle of Antietam, the thoughts and emotions the men felt during the battle and a vivid description of the franticness that surrounded the care of the wounded provides the reader with a sense of what these men encountered.

The sufferings, experiences, noble exploits, endurance, patriotism and heroism of those who fought during this war, are told in great detail.

Every moment on the fields of battle were moments of fear.

Sitting with the dying was the saddest part of the battle.

Collecting the trinkets for loved ones at home and the final good-byes had the effect of maturing these young soldiers, instantly.

As the story unfolds through the eyes of a private soldier, Gerrish recounts the incredible journey that began in Portland, through Fredericksburgh, Gettysburg, the Battle of Spottsylvania all the way through to the surrender and the return journey home.

He calms me.

An unexpected long-distance friendship showed Gracelyn Dewey the ease of some relationships. Very few people could get past her walls and even then, fewer had the ability to see through her anxieties.

With him, she finds more—but circumstances wouldn’t allow them to keep it. Instead, they find an easy friendship with one another.

Until it wasn’t easy any more.

She grounds me.

In his line of work, Sawyer Meadows sees some gut wrenching things. He sees broken people, wounded people, fearful people. He loves his job, yet is losing a piece of himself in the mix.

But there was always her. Drawn to her quiet smile, he has always known she was meant to be something special to him.

A fact that became painfully evident when she found someone else to hold her.

Somewhere along the way, we lost it.

They are given one weekend together to fix their friendship.

The days can’t go off without any hitches though. When her recent past and his career collide, they’ll have to decide—is the distance enough to keep them apart? Or are they through letting everything else dictate their happiness?

“Reading this book was like looking at a written painting as the author created a mental image of her scenes, both in the beauty of the setting and in the emotions of the characters.” -Francine

Where only the bond of love can make redemption possible.

Lacey Woodhouse arrives at River Ranch to deliver the bank’s notice of default for unmade mortgage payments but plunges into a horse trough and meets the struggling owner, rancher Wray Benson, up close and personal. When a bouquet of field daisies finds its way to her car windshield weeks later, she decides to throw caution—and conflict of interest—to the wind. Time in the country charms Lacey and she learns of Wray’s support of an ailing niece which softens her heart. Soon deconstruction of his perimeter fence during the foreclosure countdown hints of trouble within her REO unit at the bank. An investigation launches with Lacey at the helm, but she has problems navigating the sole condition mandated by the bank president—she can’t see Wray until the foreclosure process concludes. Committed to staying the course, she pins the guilty conspirators and offers a secret deal on the foreclosure in the nick of time.

But will Lacey be able to reach out to downtrodden Wray and reconnect heart-to-heart?

A troubled river runs through the flower-strewn meadow of their relationship, one that the redemptive river of love must overcome.

But a man’s got to make a living, and backing off is not in his DNA. Traversing the snowy alpine winter in the Sierras and the lonely deserts of Nevada, Reno must revert to his old ways to survive.

She’s even changed her name to cut all ties between herself and the powerful Valdez family, who rules the magical world.

Damien’s drive in life has been the safety of his family, but that was before he met Felicity. He can’t stop thinking about the beautiful witch who makes the killer coffee. Is the fire he feels for Felicity enough to trump his hatred of the Valdez name?
