Spencer My entire life vanished the day I found my parents’ bodies. It changed me, broke me, and I went from a bestselling author to a ghost writer hiding behind my words… Then an assignment pairs me with a new detective on a high-profile murder case. But things spiral out of control as bodies start piling up—a cruel reminder of a past I’m desperate to forget. As the case develops, so does my attraction to the lead detective. The more we piece together the puzzle, it becomes clear the killings won’t stop…not until I’ve whispered my last word. Blake When I left my past behind to become lead detective at the Syracuse Police Department, I didn’t anticipate being handed my first serial killer case, and I sure as hell never expected to be working with an attractive woman. Spencer and I dissect every clue and struggle to predict the killer’s next move, but he’s always one step ahead of us in this twisted game of cat and mouse. It’s only a matter of time before the killer claims his next victim. And if he does…I lose everything.

Greetings to you and welcome! We are about to take a very important journey together--a journey through the diverse and critically important world of educational assessment. As you will see, both student achievement and academic self-concept are determined, by and large, on the basis of students' perceptions of their own success in the classroom. Students rely almost completely on the day-to-day, week-to-week, and term-to-term classroom assessments of their achievement to judge their current success and their hope for success in the future.

The Collected Works of Watchman Nee

When our spirit matches the spirit of the writers , we touch the spiritual content of

If you have always been drawn to word, have vivid imagination, and possess knack for putting your mental pictures into words, you have probably been drawn to, or tried your hand at writing, one or more times in your life. Every day we see the newly released books hitting the shelves or e-books becoming available online, and we are compelled to consider what it takes to turn our way with words into a vessel which is able to transport us to greatness as authors. Effective writers, both past and current, whom have left a literary mark of depth and inspiration upon the world, have a way of thinking which differs from others around them. Like anyone who is filled with creative drive, their thought processes may seem a little off, but it is their acceptance of this fact and their willingness to publicly embrace their own psychology that has taken them where they are today. So, do you think like an individual who has the potential to be a writer of renown, one who will leave a permanent mark on the hearts and minds of those who enter your written world? Here we will review the way great writers think and the way they process and respond to their own thoughts, and we will show the parallels between these characteristics and the brilliant works they produce. Read on to find out where you stand psychologically and how your psychological make-up stacks up to that of a consistently successful and sought after writer.

The Word Behind Bars and the Paradox of Exile grew out of a workshop that brought together a group of African writers, including many who suffered imprisonment in their home countries and/or exile abroad. For some, the workshop prompted their first attempt to write about their experiences and to compare them with others whose life and art had come under similar constraints. This collection represents their assessments--in prose, poetry, and drama--of the many facets of the exile experience. The papers are as graphic, eloquent, and thought-provoking as they are varied in their subject matter and mode of communication. A powerful fusion of the personal and the political, The Word Behind Bars and the Paradox of Exile offers a timely perspective on conditions of literary production in many parts of Africa today.
