The Legend

Historical Mystery
Ground Truth

Legends clash with reality at the Calloway House

Kate Tyler isn't sure she's living the life she was meant to live. Eden Springs has been wonderful, but she can't deny the wanderlust tugging at her heart. Desperate for a change of pace, she packs her bags and heads to the ancient town of Rye, England where she hopes she'll find inspiration for her new travel blog.

But when she arrives, mysteries follow her everywhere she goes. Strangers seem to know her, a book of ancient legends contains her mirror image, and Virginia Calloway is insistent that Kate come over to discuss the Legend of Arabella Courbain. Hoping to solve one of the many mysteries of this spontaneous trip, Kate agrees.

But the deeper Kate digs into the truth of what happened to Arabella back in 1766, the more she learns that the present may not hold the answers she needs. When legends cross with reality, Kate must find the truth before history repeats itself.

Make sure you catch book one of the Kate Tyler series: Heirloom.

Backyard Politics

Education, Family Psychology

No Wake Zone

Our political system is fiercely divided. Political differences are fracturing families, separating friends, and even introducing tensions in casual encounters. Many of our elected officials, and national media, are resorting to vilification, accusation, and open hostility as a way to gain control over the political narrative.

Backyard Politics provides a way to understand the seemingly insurmountable political strife currently overtaking our country. Because each political cause believes that their approach will better humanity, it is essential that we understand both points of view to lessen animosity and reach a compromise.

For over forty years, Dr. Craig Wiener, a Clinical Psychologist, has helped individuals and families resolve their difficulties. Rather than look to politicians to diminish our political friction, he proposes a parenting solution that allows family members to resolve their problems in mutually satisfying ways. Learning how to cooperate as a family prepares children to mediate social discord when venturing into the outside world.

Backyard Politics is a must-read for those who want to foster well-being for children and society.

Releasing April 12, 2022.

The Light of a Cuban Son

LGBTQ+, Coming of Age, Vignette Collection

mission improbable

In this semi-autobiographical novel set in mid 20th century Cuba, Lorenzo Chavez reveals the moving story of a boy determined to stay true to who he is and find happiness against all odds.

Told in a series of first-person vignettes, Martín's story covers a wide swath of the Cuban landscape and people, taking us from the lush greens and fertile soils of the countryside to the dark underbelly of a Havana as full of depravity as it is neon lights. 

After suffering a series of heartbreaking abuses, Martín struggles to find his way and claim his identity as a young gay man in an impoverished neighborhood. When the Revolution slowly begins to claim everything Martín holds dear, he takes a desperate leap of faith—one that could cost him his life.

Martín's coming of age story is one of courage and the rebirth of a brave young man who refuses to hide his light.

This novel is perfect for fans of Achy Obejas, Cristina Garcia, and Carmen Maria Machado.
