Tom, a fisherman, lives with his wife Katie in a small thatch-roofed house. Not young they dearly wished to have a child to love. Tom is often sick but still goes out in his boat to net his fish. Tom’s catches are not many, catching enough fish for him and Katie, with a few left to sell at the markets. It is in the ocean that a mer-baby is rescued by the mermaid Queen, Coral. Queen Coral seeing the mer-baby’s black-hair is startled but soon forgets her shock when seeing the baby is of the sea. With her King she claims the mer-baby as their own. King Trebor names the mer-child, Katina. Katina grows into a mischievous mer-maid. Katina disobeys her mother’s warnings about going to the top of the ocean and is caught in a fisherman’s net. Katina lives many years with Tom and Katie when Katie notices Katina’s sadness. Although it breaks Tom and Katie’s hearts, they send Katina back to her people. Katina grows into a beautiful Siren. Katina is happy with her people but misses Tom and Katie. Going to the old crone for advice, Katina is shocked by the old crone’s words. “Cut off your hair and give it to me!” “Please! No! Old crone! Not my beautiful hair?” Give me your hair or no human body for you!” Cutting off her hair, Katina places it in the pearly shell the old crone pushes to her. As the old crone turns to leave, Katina wails, “How will I reach the shore?” Waving a gnarled finger the old crone causes a high wave to speed Katina to the shore. Katina waits near the sea shore for her body to become human. Believing the old crone has lied to her Katina hides herself by day. For two nights Katina wails until she finally sleeps.

David Thornton is a thirty-three-year-old child-welfare worker with over ten years’ experience on the job. He has investigated more cases of child abuse and neglect than he would care to remember, and after working the graveyard night shift for more than a decade, he has seen his family disappear and his social life become almost non-existent. Now finding himself trapped between a career that has stagnated and solitary personal life, David spends his days off alone, longing for any release from a lifestyle he just doesn’t know how to escape. Then while responding to a particularly confronting abuse case one night, David meets Nikki, a teenage girl with whom he develops a surprising connection. Alone, lost and abandoned, her story will shake him unlike that of anyone he has ever met before and cause him to question everything he knows about his work, his relationships, and life as he knows it. Shortly afterwards, David and his team suddenly find themselves reeling from the tragic death of a colleague, the return of a demon from their past and the terrible details of Nikki’s case file. In Nikki, David finds an undeniable sense of connection, trust and understanding. But, where did the young girl come from? And what does she want from him?

Lauren finds herself up a tree dressed only in her undies (not the way she usually dresses to go out). A millennium in the future Elisia’s newest and youngest perfect finds an anomaly: a fifteenth century monk describes a most improbable holy relic which sounds suspiciously like a bra and pair of pants. Katya, her unusually aggressive guard, an even less appealing alien and sundry other handicaps set out to rescue Lauren. Time’s a funny thing. It doesn’t just pass. Sometimes it turns back and bites you on the bum.

The writing of this book came as many friends and acquaintances told me that I should write a book on my experiences of the miners’ strike in 1984-85 and how it changed my life forever.. I never gave this idea much thought until early in 2013 when a BBC TV journalist suggested that it would make good reading. I realised that the 30th Anniversary was very soon to be upon us, and felt that this would be the end for me with regard to TV interviews about the family break up caused by the Miner’s strike. The thirty year mark seemed a good a point in time as any to round it off as it were. Having said that I could find myself doing interviews at the Fortieth anniversary. I could not believe even now just how raw this industrial dispute would feel even after all this time. When one looks at other industrial disputes you could be forgiven for not remembering one Two years ago let alone Thirty. The reason I think that the miners’ strike lasted so long in people’s hearts and minds was that it wasn’t just a job, it was a way of life, a heritage, an industry that was so vital to the economic wellbeing of Great Britain. Whatever your views on the miner’s strike this book is to give you an insight into the experiences of a normal unassuming coal miner and how his world was turned upside down and thrown into the public eye through the normal act of going to work but with a twist doing a non-normal act in a very unordinary climate. Crossing a picket line of over 800 angry miner’s is not an easy thing to do. The dilemma I found myself in was quite simple, I did not believe that a strike would solve anything, I felt that holding the country to ransom was immoral. The casing point that made the decision once and for all was Arthur Scargill’s refusal to give us, his member’s, the fundamental right of a national ballot. Although I was against the strike from the outset had we been given a national ballot and had that ballot resulted in a majority in favour of strike action then I like all the other miners that crossed the picket lines in 1984 would be out on strike without question. That after all is democracy. Men and Women in English history have died fighting for the right of a democratic vote, in a lesser way that is what I and others like me did, we fought for democracy. My closing remark on that, is that the only way to have kept the pits open albeit lesser in numbers was to work them, not abandon them for a whole year.

Jane Sinclair is the daughter of Angus and Matilda Sinclair, who have a farm bordering on the New Forest in Hampshire. The story depicts life in 1850 England. Whilst picking blackberries in the New Forest, she meets Charles, the son of Sir Richard Cholmondelay, pronounced Chumley. Sir Richard threatens to ruin her family should she persist with this liaison. She runs away to London hoping to avoid a catastrophe where she ends up in dire straits. She is befriended by an avuncular figure, Bob, who finds her work in a flower shop, the owner of which dies and leaves all to Jane. It depicts the struggles of a young woman against adversity who ends up owning two garment factories, in spite of opposition to her ideas on the advancement of women. Reunited with Charles, she moves to Fordingbridge Hall. Charles decides to have one last fling before marrying and sails to Algiers together with the new Head of Mission. The boat is lost, and Charles and the son of the owner are captured by slavers and held for ransom. Jane, hearing of his supposed loss, falls into a coma, where she is force-fed by her maid. Charles fights his way to freedom, and all ends well. This is not a romantic book. It has romance in it. It depicts the struggle of a young woman of the time who fights against prejudice and ingrained misogyny. On one occasion, when her factory outlets are closed to her by the opposition, she is assisted by Mrs. Goulden, the mother of Emmeline Pankhurst, and her suffragettes. Her workforce, unbeknown to her, takes a day off without pay to mount a protest outside the shops. Jane joins them and informs the reporters, “This is the sort of loyalty that you can expect when you treat your workers like human beings and not like animals.” When first inspecting her new acquisition, she insisted on seeing the WC’s against advice. “Sir, if they are not suitable for me, then they are not suitable for the workers.” There are many twists to this story that cannot be described in three hundred words. The English attaché who turns spy in order to discover where Charles is being held—of the English crew of a freighter who affect his release. The old sea captain who befriends her and of those who would break her. It is a story of many parts.

This book is a book of songs and poems that I believe the Lord gave to me through my journey with him. He speaks to me not only in the situations of trials and struggles but also in the victories of my life. Some of the poems and songs he has given me are for other people like, ‘You Are Called To Be My Disciples’. However, in essence, I believe the book is there to help me and others as well to know him and to fall in love with him again and to trust him. I believe that when people read this book, they will identify with it, and also that The Lord will meet their needs and set them free.

Debt is an important form of financing economic development, especially external debt is in the form of foreign exchange inflows. Exports may not bring in the necessary amount of foreign exchange needed for more imports, or foreign direct investment may not be sufficient for rapid economic development. Debt may bring in benefits/profits or may become a problem of liquidity or solvency. Debt is profitable when its usage brings in discounted streams of rates of return greater than its discounted streams of costs. Illiquidity is a short-run inadequacy of foreign exchange whereas solvency is a long-run problem in the same respect. Debt crisis - a long run solvency problem - refers to a situation where a country or a region undergo rescheduling; i.e. postponement of interest and principal repayments as a result of inability to repay debt. Rescheduling occurs often through the process of negotiations between debtors and creditors. A country can also declare a moratorium which is more severe because it means repayments of interest or both interest and principal are stopped temporarily until creditors agree to negotiate. The 1980s marked a decade where there were developing country-wide debt problem. The nature of debt problem broadly differ among regions. The Latin American countries went into debt crisis due to excessive borrowings in the international credit markets including the Euro-currency market. The debt crisis in the African region predates that of the Latin American’s due to scarcity of foreign exchange earnings via exports. The ASEAN region has lesser debt problems of illiquidity in nature, thus perceived as creditworthy by over-viewers, facilitating more capital inflows in either the form of foreign investment or foreign debt.

"This book is not just the story of an amazing young man's life journey....it's much more than that. This is a labour of love by a proud father. A touching tribute to his son's courage, his love of family, and his commitment to his God. It is a celebration of a life well lived." - Suzanne Faull, Chaplain, Expatriate Support Ministries "Around Newcastle are many homes built and renovated by my friend Chad. When he wasn't swinging a hammer for clients, he was hard at work building a life around him. This year Chad began building his family a new house. Chad was in hospital when they last raced at Bathurst. He was thin and in pain, but laughed as he talked about cars and fishing and his suffering and faith. He always clung to hope, to a miracle. Although he couldn't eat his meal, he was concerned I hadn't had dinner. His last words were "Jesus, wow." - Bruce Quirey, Senior Journalist, Newcastle Herald "The story of Chad is very moving and inspiring. Publishing it will not only give justice to the wonderful life he lived, but will also leave a legacy to those who know him and to those who will know him through his book. I just felt that this book can make a difference to the lives of other people when it's out in the market. What a birthday present would this be for Chad. I know he is very happy in the presence of the Lord knowing that he is cherished by his loving family for the wonderful life he lived. Truly enough he will be 33 years old forever which is a very significant number for the Saviour." - Michael Mendes, Senior Publishing Consultant, Xlibris.

These poems, written from 1955 to 2014, are a reflection on the period by someone who lived through it and, of course, aged in the process. Various world tragedies knocked the poetry out of him a time or two. He says: Somewhere between 1955 and 2000 humanity took a further seriously wrong turning. The twenty-fi rst century started in farce that gave unlimited power to people intent on mass murder. We let it happen. Poetry was once the great harbinger of understanding and poets were once listened to because they had something important to say.
