By Frederick J. Mahoney
He was living the American dream. He moved from New York to Pennsylvania and found the love of his life. For fi fty-fi ve years, they built a home fi lled with love, laughter, and six children. One spring day Frederick took his wife Janey up to the hospital for her regular cancer treatment. At the time, they didn’t know that would be their last visit. When Janey died, Freddy’s loneliness was almost unbearable. Several months later, while praying near her grave, missing her more, he saw the bluest sky. It reminded him of her beautiful blue eyes and felt it was a sign. He wrote the poem “Sky Blues” and has not stopped writing since. This book is a collection of some of the love poems he wrote. They appear in the order in which he wrote them. They represent his real dream . . . to fi nd her in heaven and continue their love story

By Marcellus Moylan
Enter into the darkness of a moon-lit graveyard where two long-lost brothers meet again. Under the shadow of specter-like trees, by the grave of their father, listen to their narration of what transpired in the fifty years of their separation, and witness how the story finally unfolds, there in the moon-lit graveyard. There are two other shorter ballads in this book. One tells of the heroism of Maximilian Kolbe, and the other will challenge you to reflect on your life as pilgrim and how you bear your sufferings which will lead you to the Eternal City. Of the other poems and sonnets in Marcellus Moylan's first published book, some are prayers and the others touch upon the themes of friendship, hope, and home.

Ce livre est le récit émouvant d'un père français, sa femme et leur fille qui se sont trouvé à Paris le 5 juin 1944 quand le reste de la famille était sur leur ferme en Normandie à quelques kilomètres des plages du débarquement. Ils trouvèrent des vélos pour parcourir les 220 kilomètres à travers de nombreux bombardements jusqu'à Caen, où ils rencontrèrent des lignes allemands impénétrables entre eux et la ferme. Pendant un mois, père et fils aidèrent à organiser la défense civile de la ville, et quand Caen fut enfin libéré ils reprirent leurs bicyclettes pour atteindre la ferme, où tous étaient sains et saufs. Ensuite, le père parcourut le pays, où il était connu, afin d'établir des services administratifs dans la Normandie libérée où il décrit la destruction subie dans la région. Un récit personnel, raconté à ses enfants, présenté par sa fille (qui se trouvait à la ferme) et préservé pour posterité.

The life of Helen Miller Bailey, teacher, artist, author, community activist, social reformer, wife, and mother, is as inspirational as it was ardently lived. Today’s authors of purportedly new concepts of living a purposeful life, inspired work, and authentic leadership could have been writing about Helen Miller Bailey, though she died nearly half a century ago. Those who witnessed the intensity with which she approached teaching and mentoring, justice, world travel, and Latin American studies describe just how Doc Bailey instilled these ideals in her students who honor her today with a legacy of service and leadership.

My hopes in writing this book is that it may help another child who may be struggling with a bad time that they may be going through in their life. I have hopes to perhaps make it a little easier for them by giving them some hope and courage to endure and overcome the situation they are facing. I would like them to realize that they are stronger than they know, and that they have what it takes to get through . I would also like them to know that life isn’t always so hard, the bad times do not last. Forever, and that there is always someone, somewhere who has it much harder than them.

For as far back as I can remember, I have told stories. I can take nearly any situation or event and make a funny story of it. Life is too short to miss out on the fun part. Also for many years I have been writing articles and short stories for various newsletters, newspapers, and even national magazines; some paid but most for free. I enjoy writing to entertain, to inform, and to educate. I have a different view of the world than the average person and not afraid of sharing it. I have, for many years, wanted to write a book but thought that anything I would have to say would be out of date before I finished the book. And then one day, not too long ago, I had an epiphany—life stories, humor, fun philosophy, and basic life lessons don’t go out of date. So I wrote this book. The book is a collection of family stories, tall tales, a few reprints of previously published newspaper articles, a little fun philosophy, and a technical issue or two. Except for a very few of the stories, as noted in the stories, all are original works of mine. The contents are, as you will notice, printed and listed simply, alphabetically. I thought this random arrangement would minimize the potential for one to lose interest and fall asleep reading various versions of the same thing. My intent in writing this book was not just to make some extra cash, but to put down in writing, in a more permanent form, some of my life’s experiences, crazy ideas, and a little technical correctness, for family, friends, and a few others to enjoy. Please enjoy.

A book of poetry collected from family memories as a child. Every poem in the collection pertains to a family member in my life, or special moments. Also writing was a moment when I could speak from the soul and ended being wonderful therapy. I found out I could put my feelings away in a box, and return when I wanted to remember my special people. When my sister Annie was dying from cancerous tumors in the head was the most hurtful moments of life. She inspired me to write because my love for her gave me so much power to write about her and preparation to say goodbye.

THE HOUSE OF DAVID This is the history of my family, African-Americans who were slaves until the end of the Civil War because they lived in Kentucky, a state that had not seceded from the Union, so the Emancipation Proclamation did not affect them. Their achievements are admirable by any standards, but when you consider that they began as slaves, their achievements are phenomenal. They are also interesting and entertaining. For example, there was a twelve-year-old slave girl in Arkansas who was used to settle a gambling debt owed to a Kentucky man. Fortunately the Kentucky man’s family were very nice and had lots of money. They would not let a family member take a child away from her family, so they bought her whole family––her mother and three brothers. She slept in the big house with the son of the man who won her. She bore him two daughters. She did not have to work hard. She did light cooking and laundered the family’s finest clothing. When the war was over and she was free, she took her daughters and left. She opened a hand laundry specializing in men’s fancy shirts––those with ruffles or pleats down the front. She never had anything to do with another man. Though she could neither read nor write, she sent both of her daughters to college. One later became a school principal. Another slave worked for his master for pay after he was freed. His former master gave him a letter of recommendation that enabled him to buy land. He became quite successful as a minister, a farmer, and especially as a breeder of horses and other equine animals. Once a year, his former master would pay him a very formal visit, and he would return the visit, which was equally formal. They treated each other as equals. This book is primarily for my family, because I want them to be aware of their marvelous background and hope that they will keep up the good work. A secondary purpose is the hope that people of other races will read it and realize that their ideas about black people are wrong. I know that such wrong ideas are prevalent because I have been a college professor, associating with intelligent, educated people all during my career. Because I appear to be white, people tell me what they really think about blacks. Their ideas would be ludicrous if they were not so appalling.

Chrysalis is the first in a planned series of  books entitled The Crystal Kondor of  Kordon. It is the story of Bar/Don, a poetess from the planet Kordon. A story of deception on a grand scale, and the power of evolution that will see right through it.....

The story takes place in  Hydra Delcon, a planetary system consisting of five planets. Each one particularly suited to one of the six highly specialized races that inhabit them.

For generations, Kordonians have enjoyed the luxury of living to create their arts. Art on Kordon encompasses every imaginable form of expression, from painting, sculpture, music and poetry, to the more functional artistry of fashion design, cooking, landscaping and architecture.  Their art is the currency they use to obtain the necessities of life. The other four planets; Linfall, Trebot, Lenemar and Relserb; grow, manufacture, supply and transport all of the foods and materials essential to daily living.

Beneath the veneer of this idyllic existence lies a growing unrest. A disillusionment with the status quo. Bar/Don has spent most of her life searching for answers to the questions that no one dares to voice.  Instead of answers she uncovers more questions than she could ever imagine, her rebellious spirit, the force driving her to follow wherever the new mysteries lead.....

.....Journey with Bar/Don as she discovers an abandoned city on a long uninhabited, nearly forgotten continent. She is joined on her quest by her two diametrically unique companions.  Citron, a Lenemarian farmer, and Rogger a spacserb from Relserb. These three unlikely explorers stumble upon a two thousand year-old secret that threatens to shatter every truth they have ever known.  Join them as they meet an ancient race whos memories hold the key to millennia of unknown Kordonian history.....

.....Flashback to Bar/Dons Day of Choice, meet the people and view the places that brought her to her search for discovery.....

.....Visit with her at ECCE as Bar/Don, on the verge of adulthood, is taught to control and use her empathy and sensuality in the creation of her chosen art .....and to integrate these ever-present Kordonian traits into her everyday life.....

Chrysalis is a story of love and friendship.  A story of art and emotion. Of choice, and the strength of will needed to make sense of an insane situation. Most of all, it is a story of freedom, to live, to love, to be all that your heart desires regardless of the station that life has set you in. A tale set in an exotic, and sometimes erotic, alien universe, Chrysalis exemplifies all the best of what it is to be human.
