The much-loved travel writer recalls a 1950s childhood in post-war London's every shade of grey and the splendours of Africa as, with her glamorous mother and father, Susie boards a ship bound for exotic, technicolor Kenya. Then its final decade as a colony, Kenya was peopled with larger-than-life characters who had helped to forge its identity. There, with the threats of the Mau Mau uprising ever-present, Susie's life disintegrates at break-neck speed into a web of jealousy, rejection and casual cruelty. Each time it seems things cannot get any worse, they do as Susie lifts the lid on her own, often shocking, behavior in her quest to protect herself and those she loves. Rebellious, lonely and self-destructive, it is a small grey pony named Cinderella who saves Susie from herself and brings her the love she craves. Readers will shed a tear at her losses and laugh at her predicaments in this sometimes hilarious, often heartbreaking, true story that gives a moving and often shocking insight in to the earlier life of the bestselling travel writer famed for her humor and her honesty.

Joseph Souza, acclaimed author of The Neighbor, brings readers into the dark heart of a small town in this riveting, relentlessly twisting new novel . . . Lucy Abbott never pictured herself coming back to Fawn Grove, Maine. Yet after serving time in Afghanistan, then years spent as a sous chef in New York, she’s realized her only hope of moving on from the past involves facing it again. But Fawn Grove, like Lucy herself, has changed. Lucy’s sister, Wendy, is eager to help her adapt, almost stifling her with concern. At the local diner, Lucy is an exotic curiosity—much like the refugees who’ve arrived in recent years. When a fifteen-year-old Muslim girl is found murdered along the banks of the river, difficult memories of Lucy’s time overseas come flooding back and she feels an automatic connection. At first glance, the tragedy looks like an honor killing. But the more Lucy learns about her old hometown, the less certain that seems. There is menace and hostility here, clothed in neighborly smiles and a veneer of comfort. And when another teen is found dead in a cornfield, his throat slit, Lucy—who knows something about hiding secrets—must confront a truth more brutal than she could have imagined, in the last place she expected it . . . “Delivers one devilish twist after another, pulling you into the story and never letting go. A tightly paced suspense drawn with compellingly real characters, Souza’s newest domestic thriller is a genre-defining tour-de-force.” —Steve Konkoly

You never lose anything. That which shatters finds itself whole. They say some can never be whole but that is not the truth. All becomes whole simply because it changes. The meltdown of a single nation blew apart the house of cards which made the world economy and birthed the Final Crash. A chain reaction was set off that altered the landscape of the planet down to the planet’s crust. Governments, borders, society the crumbled Earth held a violent rebellion against Nature and itself. Chaos reigned in its wake until even that grew old, and ruinous calmed. Sixteen year old Nati has never seen another human being except old man Raditz. Together they travelled through the wastelands intersecting between the Xhosa, Zulu, Pedi, Venda and San territories where nothing can survive the hellish fury which is now the African sun. The day she saw her first sign of human life, she lost the only man she’d ever known and the course of her life descended into a road that led her to an oasis at the edge of the world, where nothing can escape. Humans are hard to deal with, impossible to figure out or trust, most especially when you have something everyone wants, a way out. If Nati wants out alive, she will have to bet her life on a game she had never so much as heard of. Bludgeon Ball, and if she can survive without breaking every bone in her body and trust in her less than honest partner then she just might make it out alive. When survival through strength is the only thing you know, the best solution can be found in a game where fatal assault is literally in the name.

This book is my account of finding a mystery man for four years. His name is Sri Aurobindo, a great spiritual leader. I found a portrait of him in an Ashram in India and in finding him I found myself. I looked up and there in the corner of my bedroom, blinking off and on for some time as if it were on a poster size, black and white television screen was the portrait of a man. Sitting up in bed, slightly slapping my face to make sure I was awake, the words, "Who is this man?" came into my head. Answering myself, sprang the words, " I don't know who he is, but I think he is a philosopher who lived in the eighteen hundreds. While watching in wonderment, I realized three normal human reactions: intense heat, hearing a voice, and seeing a face. I knew I wasn't crazy, just dumbfounded. This was an apparition! Are they really real? Who would believe me? And what if anything did it mean?

You walk down a busy London street, blink, and find yourself in the medieval farm that was once there – and you can converse with the spirits who lived in that time and place.

Based on actual events, Casey plots to murder her husband, a soldier, for more than insurance money with the help of family. Fighting for his life, Thomas battles the relentless hatred of not only a black widow woman, but also a hidden family of black widows. What other hidden secrets could be lye inside the belly of the beast? Action packed, this story, based on actual events will make it all too difficult to put this book down aside from turning your stomach upside down over its remarkable content. For generations, women have been depicted as a delicate flower, incapable of equaling a mans strong, secure, outer structure a womans desires. Fast forwarding into the modern age, the feminist movement have campaigned for reforms on issues such as reproductive rights, domestic violence, maternity leave, equal pay, women's suffrage, sexual harassment, and sexual violence, all of which fall under the label of feminism. Now pushing for financial, social and cultural inequalities, men are still being subjected to the already well-known power women have had and harnessed for centuries. Over these centuries women have still maintained their focus on women's reproductive rights. Short of what this project is all about. I am focusing this campaign on what effects a mans outer glass shell, broken repeatedly as a result of unseen, unheard, or ignored pleas for equivalent laws that dramatically effect what happens to the male during divorce, domestic violence, abandonment of the male figure, and affecting the very core of his inner soul. As times change, little do the laws or the acknowledgement of men who are now coming forward with their own stories of sexual, verbal, emotional, and in many cases physical abuse by women, who remain the innocent ones. At the present time we are in post-production of the full-feature film based off this novel. Published in 2012, I feel this would be another amazing speaking point to those around the world who choose a visual experience over reading.
