Book Description:

Trouble comes to Oralee as regularly as the mail. Unlucky in love, she struggles to raise a baby she loves more than life itself, she tries not to hate her deadbeat husband more distinguished by his absence than his support, she does what she can to endure the condescending good-intentions and even outright hostility her vulnerability attracts from the people of the town. And when necessity forces her to attend to her husband’s antagonistic father – the only family she has left – she grabs for it as the only salvation open to her.

Oralee’s vibrant efforts to overcome her circumstances reveal a character as charismatic as any in Skipper’s remarkable novels. Her voice, her spirit, her humor, and as often her astonishment and wonder at a world so beautiful and at once so difficult give this novel a singular emotional charge. Oralee sticks with you after you put the pages down, and her pains and heartache, and her pride and her joy are ours to share.

Alton and wife Mallory, an FBI agent, join an elite force sent to track down the missing scientist. In doing so, they uncover a world of shadowy intrigue—a land where environmentalists, competing pharmaceutical companies, and local Galapagos citizens all battle to suppress the results of Summit’s cutting-edge research. The investigators’ search is further complicated when a string of murders with apparent connections to both the black market in exotic wildlife and Summit’s research begins within days of their arrival.

Following a trail of clues as enshrouded as the islands’ volcanic slopes, Alton and Mallory face mounting danger in their race to recover Summit and track down the culprits who hope to suppress her work. Along the way, they discover that some facts—and some people—aren’t always what they seem.

Book Description:

THREE GENERATIONS OF WITTY, WILLFUL WOMEN…WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?

The world turns upside down when Hurricane Katrina hits New Orleans, blasting apart three generations of women in the final installment of the The Cooper Family Saga. Darby Cooper, the daughter of Bernie and Letty whom we met in Too Jewish and came of age with in Too Jewish: The Next Generation, has become a bestselling New Orleans author, drawing on the tragedy of her father’s life.

But despite her success, family, as always, is complex and problematic. Letty, so loving in Too Jewish, has morphed into a self-centered and willful woman—far from the kind of wise bubbeh Darby expected for her daughter Honor. But it turns out Honor is very much Letty’s girl. However, Letty’s gone missing after the storm, leaving her daughter perplexed and ambivalent. Although not yet sad. Because Letty’s pretty indomitable–your classic Tough Old Babe in designer clothes and teetering heels,

Still the traumatic search for Letty would be Darby’s main post-storm event if Honor hadn’t come back from evacuating to Florida with the boyfriend from hell. Sciutto claims he’s a mobster and, in all other ways (let’s start with crude and intolerant), is a betrayal of every core value Darby has rescued from her tragic and treacherous family history. Furthermore, as she struggles in temporary quarters in shattered post-Katrina New Orleans, Darby also has to confront the same long-lost high-school classmates whose cruelty played a nasty role in her father’s death decades before. Fortunately for the reader, her grief and bewilderment are tempered by her quick wit and humorous take at even the darkest moments.

Fans of the trilogy will eat this one up, as the Cooper women, so often so far from each other emotionally, draw ever closer, finding just how strong the bonds of family and love can be. Having followed them this far, we know and love all their quirks, all their neuroses, almost all their jokes (but there are so many!). But here’s what we don’t know–will they manage to overcome their differences and finally pull together? We’re betting on them!

Book Description:

It was the spring of 1989. I was sixteen years old, a junior in high school and an honors student. I had what every teenager wants: a stable family, a nice home in the suburbs, a great group of friends, big plans for my future, and no reason to believe that any of that would ever change.

Then came my mother’s psychosis.

I experienced first-hand the terror of watching someone I loved transform into a monster, the terror of discovering that I was to be her primary victim. For years I’ve lived with the sadness of knowing that she, too, was a helpless victim – a victim of a terrible disease that consumed and destroyed the strong and caring woman I had once called Mom.

My mother’s illness took everything. My family, my home, my friends, my future. A year and a half later I would be living alone on the street on the other side of the country, wondering whether I could even survive on my own.

But I did. That was how my mother – my real mother – raised me. To survive.

She, too, was a survivor. It wasn’t until last year that I learned that she had died – in 2007. No one will ever know her side of the story now. But perhaps, at last, it’s time for me to tell mine.

Book Description:

What would happen if a politician decided to tell the truth—the whole truth?
Richard Youngblood, aspiring Congressman, is about to find out. He’s running on a platform of honesty and transparency—and against the advice of his friends and advisers he’s decided to start with himself. His autobiography will lay his entire life bare before voters just days before the election.

And what a life he’s had. Born in a commune and named Richard Milhous Nixon Youngblood as an angry shot at his absent father, Richard grows up in the spotlight, the son of an enigmatic fugitive and the grandson of a Republican senator. He’s kidnapped and rescued, kicked out of college for a prank involving turkeys, arrested in Hawaii while trying to deliver secrets to the CIA…Dick Nixon Youngblood’s ready to tell all.

He’ll even tell his readers about the Amandas—three women who share a name but not much else, and who each have helped shape and define the man he’s become.

Are voters really ready for the whole truth?

Are you?

Pianist in a Bordello is a hilarious political romp through the last four decades of American history, from a narrator who is full of surprises.

About the Author:

Mike C. Erickson grew up in the idyllic college town of Logan, Utah, but because of a twist of fate he graduated from high school in Honolulu. He left Hawaii brimming with aloha and enrolled at Utah State, where he was awarded two degrees and self-proclaimed minor intellectual status, which was of dubious value when the US Army invited him to vacation in South-East Asia. Ten days after leaving Vietnam, he began decades of dispensing pearls of wisdom as a high school history teacher, academic decathlon coach, and on occasion, as a community college instructor in the Sacramento area. Mike and his wife Trudy, have two grown sons and a grandson born soon after this novel is published. When not in Hawaii or another exotic locale, they live in Gold River, California. This is his first novel.

As of April 26, 2015, my book is now the award winning novel, Pianist in a Bordello, having garnered a nod by the Northern California Publishers and Authors for third place in General Fiction.

Athemon is of the Caprine race, and therefore condemned to a life of poverty and persecution. When he learns that his race can be a source of power instead of oppression, he claims that power eagerly. But payback comes with a cost of its own.

Verlvik’s tribe lives in the depths of the unconquered forests, where the power of the Great Goddess holds sway. What She claims must be given. And what She claims is Verlvik’s very life.

Grillis, Athemon, and Verlvik–rejected by their peoples and thrown together by the fates. Brotherhood offers their only hope of redemption. But brotherhood isn’t something they were born into, it’s something they must earn.

The government can do anything they want to him—anything at all…

Mark Taylor knows his actions scream guilty—but he was only trying to stop the horrible terrorist attack. Instead of a thank you, the government labels him an enemy combatant and throws him in the brig with no rights, no trial, and no way to prove his innocence.

He’s just a regular guy—a photographer—who finds himself in an extraordinary situation when an antique camera he buys at a dusty Afghanistan bazaar produces photographs of future tragedies. Tragedies he’s driven to prevent.

His frantic warnings about September 11th are ignored but put him in the government cross-hairs where he learns what being labeled an ‘enemy combatant’ really means…

In 2174 authors are obsolete. With the exception of a few human ‘Author’ titles printed in the small basement and back room Libraries, all stories are created by the Artificial Intelligence of the Archive. Most believe the ‘Authors’ are only brands to lure people into spending their credits on print. One woman believes that one of them, author Hugh Howey, is real, and still alive. Her Librarian feeds her belief that Hugh Howey is still sailing around the world, uploading his work to the Archive. Convinced she has found clues in his stories as to where he now resides, she and her girlfriend sail to an island, where she believes Hugh Howey lives.
