Entrenched secrets, mysterious spirits, and an astonishing friendship weave together in this extraordinary and haunting debut that School Library Journal calls “a powerful story about loss and moving on.” Nothing matters. Only Bird matters. And he flew away. Jewel never knew her brother Bird, but all her life she has lived in his shadow. Her parents blame Grandpa for the tragedy of their family’s past: they say that Grandpa attracted a malevolent spirit—a duppy—into their home. Grandpa hasn’t spoken a word since. Now Jewel is twelve, and she lives in a house full of secrets and impenetrable silence. Jewel is sure that no one will ever love her like they loved Bird, until the night that she meets a mysterious boy in a tree. Grandpa is convinced that the boy is a duppy, but Jewel knows that he is something more. And that maybe—just maybe—the time has come to break through the stagnant silence of the past.

Every time someone mentions nursing homes or related stories about the aged residing in them, a sense of pity or horrible thoughts are conjured up in our minds that they are depressing and smell of urine, and seem dark and unwelcoming. So many people today do not visit them. Instead of being a joyful experience, it becomes a nightmare-if only in the mind of the visitors because nursing homes are exploited in the media-that all seniors in a Home are abused and neglected, which is not true. There are quality facilities out there, and we should feel good, instead, about the care now available for a relative with Dementia, or those unable to care for themselves. The truth is we are the ones who refuse to feel, or try to understand what residents, aides, and those involved with the care of the elderly experience. A Home Is Not Always Where The Heart Is is not a serious look at the aged, nor a journal filled with information on why a person develops Alzheimer's disease. Rather it is an honest look-through humor and the day-to-day living of the aged in a home.

FROM THE AUTHOR After I returned to prison, I took a long look at myself, and for the first time in my life, admitted that I was wrong, that I had gone astray; astray not so much from the law as from being human, civilized. Even though I had some insight into my own motivations, I did not feel justified. I lost my self-respect. My whole fragile moral structure seemed to collapse, completely shattered. That is when I started to write, to save myself.

On a year in the near future, at 7:15 p.m. on the 21st of October, the entire American government is wiped out by nuclear warheads. No one was sure who did it. As the first wave of attacks came, surviving Americans soon knew that both the Russians and Chinese,through a systematic infiltration of North America and a complete program of invasion, are the enemies. The survivors have to collect their wits, put up a defense, and harness all sorts of technological and material resources in order for America to survive and continue in The New Beginning, a vision of an America after a successful enemy nuclear attack. Fully a hundred million Americans did not survive the fi rst wave of attacks. Alexander James, then a civilian, is enlisted into the army. The United States, what is left of it, turns into a highly militarized and technologically conscious political entity to combat the oncoming hordes of Chinese and Russians. Fighting rages across the American continent, and Americans themselves are forced to think up all sorts of guerilla operations to momentarily stop the enemy juggernaut, regroup, and perhaps (in a vain hope)to defeat it. Years of fighting changes the remaining landscape of America. Buildings are built like fortresses, high technology forms a defensive border even over American skies, children study war in kindergarten, and society lives and dies by the strength of its war slogans and the will to take the fight to the enemy. Alexander James is absent from family life for years on end. He makes it to Colonel in the armed forces and is a pivotal personality in a desperate operation to stop the war totally by infi ltrating the Russian high command. He becomes a hero but refuses to be drawn in to the next presidential election, being disillusioned by what American society had become because of the war. This novel is the start of a riveting new saga of a future America fighting for its very survival.

It's Thanksgiving of Mindy's senior year of high school. She has already been granted a college academic scholarship. She is no longer involved with her baby's father. Ward Brown fears the dastardly inevitable; he needs a miracle, will try anything to stop his daughter from aborting her baby. With help of a shrewd insurance CEO and his troubled lawyer, Ward Brown takes out a controversial life insurance policy on his unborn grandchild. As his daughter Mindy Brown endures her senior year, delaying an inevitable abortion, the world awaits a civil trial which could topple Roe v. Wade. "A Grisham-like thriller, Grandpa's Hook engages legalized abortion much like Uncle Tom's Cabin engaged, and helped end, legalized slavery." -Jedd Hafer.
