Second Spring

Synopsis: 

This is Avantika's heartfelt journey through love and life

As a smart, successful, thirty-eight-year-old, single mother Avantika  seemingly has it all: a great career as a seasoned banking professional, respect and admiration from her peers as an able leader, fulfillment as a mother, and so many other things besides.

What is it then that drives her towards Rohan, a man six years her junior? He's a man who ideally would not occupy much room in Avantika's otherwise sorted mind space.

She has told herself she has no time for love.  Then, why does she make the choices she makes? Is it the sameness and banality of everyday existence? Is it the emotional vacuum? A need to relive life? A feeling that life as she is truly lived and felt is passing her by?

However, as she struggles with her feelings, Avantika and Rohan part ways… only to meet again. To what end? Why does Rohan want her back… and why now?

So many questions! Very few answers!

Avantika's journey is as spiritual as it is emotional. Can love give second chances? Join Avantika in the twists and turns of her story, through her ponderings over the mysteries and vagaries of the word “love,” the complexities of human relationships, and the reassessment of all the values she has held dear…

EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She's even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

UNTIL TODAY
And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
 
SHOT DOWN: The true story of pilot Howard Snyder and the crew of the B-17 Susan Ruth

An Amazon Best Seller and winner of 20 national book awards, SHOT DOWN is set within the framework of World War II in Europe and recounts the dramatic experiences of each member of a ten man B-17 bomber crew after their plane, piloted by the author's father, was knocked out of the sky by German fighters over the French/Belgiam border in 1944.  Some men died. Some were captured and became prisoners of war.  Some evaded the Germans for awhile but were betrayed, captured, and shot. Some men evaded capture and were missing in action for seven months before being liberated by the U.S. Army. Their individual stories and those of the courageous Belgian people who risked their lives to help them are all different and are all remarkable.

Mary Fields aka Stagecoach Mary

This is the story of Mary Fields, ‘Stagecoach Mary', who got her nickname at the turn of the 20th Century.  She earned this nickname by working for the, ‘United States Postal System' delivering the United States Mail through adverse conditions that would have discouraged the most hardened frontiersmen of that period.  All by herself, she never missed a day for 8 years, carrying the U. S. Mail and other important documents that helped settle the wild open territory of central west Montana.  Stagecoach Mary had no fear of man, nor beast, and this sometimes got her into trouble.  Stagecoach Mary delivered the mail regardless of the heat of the day, cold of night, wind, rain, sleet, snow, blizzards, Indians and Outlaws.

Stagecoach Mary was 6 feet tall, and weighed over 200 pounds, and even with ‘those' extraordinary extremes, there were two more facts that made ‘her' history.  Stagecoach Mary was the second woman in ‘history' to carry the U. S. Mail, however, even that was a matter of simplicity, for a fact, she was a Negro Woman, and the only ‘Negro', for hundreds and hundreds of miles when she first arrived in Montana.

This feature story will cover Stagecoach Mary's colorful life, from the plantation where she was born a slave in 1832, to the famous Steamboat race between the “Robert E. Lee” and the “Natchez” on the Mississippi River, to her death in Cascade, Montana, 1914.

Gaikokujin - The Story

外黒人 is a spiritual rags to riches adventure. Before I divided the book into three parts, the subtitle for the entire story was “Race, Redemption, and a Quest for Christ Consciousness.” I have been blessed to live a ‘storybook life' but not in any glamorous way. Writing this book has allowed me to examine my role as a person of color—which I refer to as ‘melanin-rich'—in a society which has proven itself to be hostile toward non-Caucasian people. Because this is part memoir, part historical treatise, and part survivor's guide, it is my intention to stretch the parameters of a conventional novel.

Book 1, subtitled “Hip Hop, Race, and Pursuing the American Dream” is told through the eyes of a confused child. A stranger in my own home, like so many neglected children, I found a surrogate family in the street—mainly at our neighborhood basketball courts. After learning how to ‘make a dollar out of fifteen cents,' I was headed down a tried-and-true path for disaster until, ironically, a Beast and a Serpent came to my rescue.
