Once upon a time there were these talented lads from Liverpool..no, I'm not talking about the Beatles!

 

In 2013 Joe Symes and the Loving Kind hit the UK music scene with ferocity and verve emerging as a band with gritty lyrics, versatility and a style compared to the early Liverpool sound of the '60's.  Their music hit the air-waves from Europe to the US bringing rave reviews for their unique and diverse sound. Simply put, be...

TAKING CARE OF THOSE LITTLE GRAY CELLS

 

Mary Lee Esty, Ph.D, didn’t start off to write a book, just a pamphlet to help people better recognize the symptoms and understand the dangers of concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Having teamed up with writer C.M. Shifflett, Mary Lee has produced Conquering Concussion, an award winning book chock filled with information that should be at the fingertips of athletic coaches, sch...

WHEN IT'S ALL RIGHT TO BE 'NOT ALL RIGHT' 

 

Ron Capps has served his country with bravery and commitment. As an enlisted man, as an officer, and as a member of the Foreign Service, Ron has seen war more constantly and more closely than most. In fact, he served his country in five war zones over a period of ten years. He shares some of the horrors and stressors of that service in his memoir Seriously Not All Right.

 

He also shar...

I hope James David Nicol had a good time writing Mac & June Love in the Time of Oil because I certainly had a great time reading it. Set in a fishing village on the coast of Scotland, this is a story of real people falling in love, taking part in family life, and being part of a world that is at once unique and universal.

 

If some of the language and customs are local to the coast of the North Sea, the emotions that suffuse...

 

Music, Love and Intrigue

 

 

In her debut novel Steel Eyes Dr. Melissa Price gives us a finely crafted tale of a brilliant but stage phobic guitar player who, by adopting a masked alter ego is able to perform for a world hungry for her great music.

 

While roaming and touring the world as a musician  global icon, the protagonist also searches for love. That the love she seeks is with another woman may excite some readers and poss...

BECAUSE WE CHOOSE

 

December 11, 1845, and the United States has declared war on Mexico. In Boston, James R. Lowell published a poem; the first stanza of which went:

 

 

Once to every man and nation, comes the moment to decide,
In the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side;
Some great cause, some great decision, offering each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever, ’twixt that darkness and that light...

 

Unimaginable emotional pain

 

If Marylee MacDonald’s novel Montpelier Tomorrow reads more like a memoir than fiction, that is because it draws so greatly on her own life and because it is so well written. As a result, this story of a middle-aged widow’s response to the grave illness that afflicts her son-in-law brings tears to the eyes and tugs at the heart.

 

ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurological dise...

Lessons From Vietnam

 

“Nam War”—Read the words backwards and you get “Raw Man,” the title of Fred Rivera’s powerful memoir of his Vietnam experiences. While the last American troops left Saigon in April 1975, the war hasn’t left those brave men and women. It haunts them physically; especially men like Rivera, who suffer from both combat related injuries and the after effects of Agent Orange.

 

 

Even more, it haunts them psycholo...

OF COURSE WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT

 

Let’s face it, most parents have a hard time talking with their teens, especially about sex. Usually there is a strained, embarrassed silence punctuated with bursts of moralistic prohibition and possibly a few biological facts—and sadly those often incorrect. And those teens are, of course, awash in hormones, desires, and curiosity. They want information, they crave input, and they want so badly...

Strong Writing and Important Messages

 

Benjamin Dancer’s novel Patriarch Run deserves double praise. First, Dancer has given his reader a well-crafted novel with strong descriptions, good balance of points of view,  carefully thought-out symbolism, and nice movement from the present to back-stories. Particularly impressive is his ability to show events from the point of view of a young man, Billy, and from that of adults, most...
