“Travel along on this journey and see how God can bring hope to a hopeless situation despite lost love, broken dreams and betrayal.” -Kathy

Has been Dead for a Decade…

Raised in a loving home, Aria Suarez dreamed of becoming a professional pianist happily married to her high school crush.

After the only boy who ever caught her eye dies a hero’s death and her wrist is shattered along with her future plans, she turns her brilliant musical mind to nuclear engineering and solving mysteries of science.

Abandoned to an abusive father at five, Nick Williams grew up dreaming of escape; of enlisting in the Army and leaving his wretched life behind; of proving himself worthy of the girl he loves. But the crucible of combat offers only the escape of death.

A decade later, Aria uncovers a nuclear plot that threatens the heart of our very nation. Sinister forces surround and threaten her when, out of nowhere, the man who reportedly died so many years before returns as if from the grave — intent on protecting her.

Has God finally joined them together? Or is Aria doomed to mourn Nick twice?

“The juxtaposition of the real and the imaginary were wonderfully interwoven….” -Bobbie G.

Margaret C. Carbuncle is the principal at Amethyst Elementary. She has an insatiable appetite for power and soon becomes a tyrant;

she also develops a desire for prestige and glory, and she knows the only way to attain this is through high test scores for her elementary school.

Therefore, she drives her Teachers into a frenzy as she demands that they instruct only those subjects that will be included on the all-important, all-consuming state examination.

She is ruthless in her desire to achieve her lofty goals. She happily destroys the lives of anyone who gets in her way. Some of the Teachers fight back, and some of them are destroyed by her;

still, she cannot be everywhere at every moment, but when cameras are put into the classrooms, the Teachers are nearly under her complete control.

But then the Secret comes, and with it, the Teachers are able to carry on, and wait for the day they will be liberated and can educate as they know best;

yes, they survive, but the school slowly dies, for no true learning occurs, only monotonous, repetitive lessons that inoculate the students with certain test-ready knowledge.

And then one day, two small visitors come for Carbuncle and attempt to teach her a real lesson in civility and charity and give her a chance to repent for all she has done to the inhabitants of the school.

Will Carbuncle reform? If she reforms, will she fight for the Teachers? If she refuses, what will be the consequences? And what is the Secret?

Public schools are an easy target for anyone who has a yellow pen or a high position in society or politics and who decries the state of education in America, thereby crucifying every Teacher in every school and empowering principals like Carbuncle everywhere;

yet, these people form their opinions about American schools from flawed childhood memories, unreliable anecdotes, and distortions of the truth.

“I thoroughly enjoyed this story…..very intriguing. The story moved at a good pace…..” -JJMakovsky

Josephine Ishikawa’s last shift as Captain of the starliner Pericles changed the course of history, but no one knows about it.

The powers that be took charge as soon as she got back to Earth, with only a select few permitted to learn about the beings she encountered during the run from Gliese, or the eggs they entrusted to her care.

Satisfied that the government would make good on her commitment to return the eggs home, Jo returned to her job of getting Pericles through a major maintenance overhaul and then back out to the stars.

But when she learns that the authorities reneged and have begun experimenting on the eggs instead, she faces a difficult choice: keep the life and career she loves or embark on a quest to rescue the eggs and keep the promise she made to their dying parents, out in the depths of space.

That quest could cost her more than she ever imagined as it plunges her into a shadow war against a planetary government that will stop at nothing to keep its secrets.

Ghosts on the Red Line – Nook

“A great story with surprising twists and turns.” -Veeb

Commuters see their Departed on Boston’s Red Line subway trains.

Consultant Harry West is hired to investigate by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.

His project turns personal when his ex-wife Alexandra Ben-Tov meets their beloved daughter on the Red Line who looks like the teenager she might have become if she had lived.

Are the visitors on the Red Line ghosts or hallucinations? Either way, after Harry’s team discovers the source of the visitations, the MBTA declares that it will bring them to an end.

Alexandra has a brilliant idea: Build Visitation Rooms that replicate the features of Red Line train cars so that people can continue to meet their loved ones.

But not everyone approves. The Archbishop of Boston seeks to get Visitation Rooms banned in Massachusetts.

And a gangster who frets that his victims will come back from the dead warns Harry and Alexandra: Cancel Opening Day for the Visitation Room, or else.

Ever thought a dream might pass you by?

Nineteen-year old CeCe Mackenzie is determined to make her dreams come true. She heads for Nashville with not much more to her name than a guitar, a Walker Hound named Hank Junior and an old car she’d inherited from her grandma called Gertrude.

But when Gertrude ends up on the side of I-40 in flames, Nashville has never seemed farther away. Help arrives in the form of two Georgia football players headed for the Nashville dream as well.

When Holden Ashford and Thomas Franklin stop to offer CeCe and Hank Junior a ride, fate may just give a nod to serendipity and meant to be. Because while CeCe is chasing after her dream, she might find love as well.
