Object of Balance is a fantasy about nine little fairies who find themselves embarking on a great quest through hostile lands to save their world, Andel. It is a race against time. They must find one of the objects the great wizards were using to keep everyone in their world safe. It has been stolen from the wizards, and it must be found and brought back before it is too late. What the creature that stole the object didn’t know was that the object was keeping something even more evil back. Without the object, their world will become riddled with all the storms the elements can throw at them. It is not all bad. The fairies do find that through their travels, they meet many new creatures who become their friends and allies. Well, with the fate of the world in the balance, wouldn’t you be willing to help? When the wizards told the fairies they had to go and get the object back, they were shocked. How could nine little fairies possibly do this? The object itself was bigger than all of them put together! The wizards told them they had to; there was no choice. The wizards could not go as they had to stay and hold the other evil at bay until the object was put back into its place. Still, the fairies worried but did as they were told. They would find a way! Object of Balance is a warm and wonderful tale full to the brim with many different characters that I hope everyone of all ages will love. There are ferocious dragons, a giant as tall as a mountain, ogres, witches, trolls, and so many others. It is family oriented, and it has many lessons to be learned. Enjoy!

By Eddie M. Leung

You are sizing up a copy of this book at an airport bookstore. As you look outside you would see hundreds of hardworking business, technical, marketing people passing by. You probably are one of those productive and relatively happy carbon based human units out there. Have you ever thought of what if you get attacked by a life threatening disease like cancer suddenly and without warning? Do you know that half of all living Americans will get some form of cancer at some point in their lives?

Eddie Leung, the author, was an engineering physicist that was having fun in all sorts of exciting projects, good at what he was doing and relatively healthy and happy. Within a period of a month, he was hit with the life threatening acute pancreatitis and then pronounced having a rare & extremely aggressive form of cancer called the Cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). This is the story of his journey through a rigorous treatment that involves the dangerous Whipple surgery, high dosage radiation & chemo therapies and subsequently unpleasant blood infection (sepsis), applying his scientific approach and management skills.

This book is a collection of what Eddie learned in terms of the skills as to how to fight cancer physiologically, mentally and spiritually; how to recover from a major surgery like Whipple and make the dreadful radiation and chemo therapies work for the patient. The detailed manuscript describes the feelings and thinking of a cancer patient, the trials and tribulations a caretaker must go through, the importance of faith & positive mental attitude in his battle for survival and eventually the jubilation associated with the change from a cancer patient to a cancer survivor. It is filled with fear, tears, compassion, light-hearted moments and finally happiness.

Since cancer is becoming so common in our daily life, it is a must read for the general public, especially cancer patients and their caretakers.

Dr. Robin Renee Sanders, having lived in Africa for several years, was always struck by the ancestral, socio-historical and educational aspects of certain African cultural practices, especially languages, artifacts, and sign and symbol systems from the Ovahimba in Namibia and Pygmies in Congo, to the Horom, Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba, and Fulani of Nigeria. Her experiences on the Continent made her appreciate each and every culture and "its information systems," which in the end she called "communication expressions."

The book follows eight extraordinary Nigerian women in the December phase of their lives as they try to preserve the meanings of their endangered sign, symbol, and motif system called Uli (oo-lee). Uli is an acknowledgement of their Igbo history, culture and ancestors. Sanders agrees with others scholars who posit that non-text, non-oral forms of communication expressions such as Nigeria's Uli, and other sign and symbol systems throughout the world, particularly in Africa, are just as important or "viable" as the written word and their meanings should be respected and preserved. Endangered cultural practices, like Uli, are just as important to protect as endangered languages as a symbolic relationship exists between the two.

Each year before the Lenten season begins I reflect on what I will sacrifice in spiritual preparation for Easter and the celebration of our Lord’s resurrection. In 2011 I decided to take a different path. Instead of giving something up I would gain something of substance, I would embark on an examination of the Parables of Jesus. What better way to strengthen my spiritual relationship with Jesus than to read and study the Words of our Lord. Ironically, as I was mentally preparing to embark on this incorporeal journey, my father called to chat. During this conversation, in the way only a loving father can, he began to chastise me about using the gifts God had blessed me with in a positive way. My father reminded me that I was a gifted writer—his choice of words—and a talented visual artist. He encouraged me to revisit these activities and get busy doing something worthwhile with these gifts. WHAT DOES JESUS ASK US TO DO? The Parables of Jesus as a Guide to Daily Living is the resulting convergence of my father’s exhortative conversation and my personal Lenten covenant. I decided that I would share this reflective commentary with others by chronicling my interpretation of the parables and related Scripture passages. What better way to consummate the end of my spiritual Lenten sojourn than to share this process with others in a published document. With a renewed commitment and focused plan of action, I began to think about the format that would be appropriate for this treatise. Because I was planning to treat my study of the parables of Jesus as a daily devotional guide, this seemed to be the best way to approach the creation of the book. The result is a recap of each parable, a summary of the meaning Jesus imparted to His audience and a call to action and or personal consideration. Each study concludes with a brief prayer. As the Lenten season was drawing to a close and my study of the parables was almost complete I began to think of artwork for the cover of what would become WHAT DOES JESUS ASK US TO DO? There were so many beautiful Biblical images that would be suitable. As I leafed through books with exquisitely inspiring images I thought back to the conversation with my father. It was then I decided to create the cover art myself. The result is The Parables Stained Glass Windows, a triptych of three collages depicting an iconic ecclesiastical symbol. As Easter Sunday drew near I reflected on this spiritual journey through the Parables of Jesus. I considered all I had learned about what Jesus wants from me, what I had learned about my own spirituality and faith. But more importantly I felt a profound sense of accomplishment and a deep sense of gratitude for my father’s love and encouragement. Helen M. Moss, April 24, 2011

This memoir chronicles three southern European clans, their migration to the United States, and intertwining, as well as hard working, warm, loving, and close-knit personal values they bestowed on their kin. Their story flows across Europe and North America from the mid 19th to the late 20th centuries. Family bonds survived and strengthened despite parental and sibling deaths, boarding schools, upheavals in occupied Romania during WW I, personal tragedies, separations imposed by WW II and the Communist bloc, civil war, and financial struggles. The Theodosious present a microcosm of southern European immigration to the United States in the earliest 1900s. From seemingly endless lines of railroad track stretching out before repair gangs of excited young Greeks in their first jobs in America to opening of substantial business establishments, they were comforted in the knowledge their toils would someday benefit their progeny.
