Guess What Happened to Me Auntie Kate Book Description:

LYNNE ARDEN moved with her family to the Pacific Northwest as a young girl living very close to Puget Sound near Seattle, Washington. She graduated from the local high school, attended the University of Washington and took a children s literary course later on in her life. To The Young Reader Alex Kinkaid is a seven year old boy who lives in Washington State by a large body of water called Puget Sound. He likes to write to his Auntie Kate about his adventures with Jerry, his cocker spaniel, Jimmy, his friend and that nasty Jack Turner. He tries real hard to please his teacher, Miss Hawthorne, but he accidentally gets into some trouble along the way. Guess What Happened to Me, Auntie Kate! will delight young children with its comical characters. Young Alex is always getting into scrapes and somehow finding ways to get out of them. From accidentally letting spiders get loose in his classroom, to a disastrous result in the kitchen making jam, Alex sure leads an adventurous life. Some of Alex s adventures were based on the author s own experiences. There actually was a sea lion that broke the windshield of a moored speed boat near Point Pulley. Point Pulley is an actual landmark on Puget Sound. Fishing for sole with nothing more than string, a weight and worms and a harrowing blizzard that hit the Puget Sound area in the Winter of 1950 were also experiences of the author. Along with the humor in these short vignettes, there is an underlying moral message in most of these stories of fair play, being kind to others, (well, most of the time), and trying really hard to be a good kid. NATALIE MARINO is an award wining fine artist who has exhibited widely and has illustrated several children s storybooks. She lives and works in her NJ studio. Email: [email protected]"

Monuments Book Description:

Monuments to the US War between the States romanticized the notion of the Confederacy. While these monuments came down early in the twenty-first century, it did not signal the end to the romantic ideas people held about the war, nor the existence of white supremacy. In the near future, Civil War reenactment events are still held, and, other than fist fights and drunken brawls, have been mostly violence-free. Until now. When Jenn’s employer is granted a contract at the country’s largest Civil War reenactment, she and the other managers, Paul, Jack, Mari, and Clarence, have to make some tough calls. Across the country, the event’s promoter and his main sponsor, a popular evangelical preacher, make plans for an event no one will soon forget. Thrown together, along with unlikely girlfriends, a doting congregant, and an unstable redneck, the characters are in for a deadly day of monumental terror. PRAISE FOR THE AUTHOR’S PREVIOUS NOVEL, BLM-PD: REVENGE WAS INEVITABLE: “I was captivated immediately. The characters are fleshed out (we all know a KJ and a Queen) the fast pace keeps you engaged all the way through and—without giving away anything—it’s satisfying to see karma in action." “BLM-PD is a page turner! Great characters, vivid visuals & writing that brings emotions. Love the book and the fact that it also provides real-life examples of what is happening in our world today. LOVE the female perspective through leadership, intelligence, resilience, friendship & power." "This book [BLM-PD] kept me engaged from the very start to the very end. It left me wanting more.”

From the Sunday Times bestselling author Katie Flynn. Three girls, evacuated from Liverpool during World War Two, support each other through hardship and heartbreak. . It’s 1939, and three ten-year-old girls meet on a station platform. Imogen, Rita and Debby all missed the original evacuation and now the authorities are finding it difficult to place them. When Auntie and her niece, Jill, who run the Canary and Linnet Public House, offer to take them in, the billeting officer is greatly relieved. The countryside is heaven to the three little townies, especially after they meet Woody and Josh, also evacuees. They find that by climbing to the top of the biggest tree in the beech wood they have a perfect bird’s-eye view of the nearest RAF station and are able to watch the comings and goings of the young fighter pilots as the Battle of Britain rages. Then they find an injured flier and the war becomes a stark reality. As they grow up, love and rivalry enter their lives and, twenty years on, when the girls decide on a reunion, many surprises come to light...
