Short Stories From Hogwarts


Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies 


‘Minerva was the Roman goddess of warriors and wisdom. William McGonagall is celebrated as the worst poet in British history. There was something irresistible to me about his name, and the idea that such a brilliant woman might be a distant relative of the buffoonish McGonagall.’ – J.K. Rowling

Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing from the Pottermore archives: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com with some exclusive new additions. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.
These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.

The Miracle Problem Solver : Using Crystals and the Power of Sedona to Transform Your Life




The Miracle Problem Solver provides the key to solving every problematic situation in your life, quite literally with a stone’s throw. For those familiar with systemic constellation work or crystal grids, some elements in Kira’s work will seem like old friends, but prior knowledge of the method is not required. This book is for all those wanting to connect to universal wisdom and heal their lives in a few simple steps.

Kira received this method directly from the 'source' during a meditation on one of the most powerful places on this earth, the Bell Rock in Sedona. The name used throughout her work (the ‘SOURCE’ method) is therefore both a perfect fit and an acronym for its essence: Sedona Stone Oracle Unity-Recreating Constellation Experience.

An ingenious, simple method
The perfect answer for those seeking a new kind of constellation work
Everything falls into place by itself
All you need is a handful of crystals or stones

The solutions lies within the problem!

Camping In High Heels by Miki Bennett / Winner 2017 ATAI Romance Novel Contest




Miki Bennett has shifted gears with her new romance novel, Camping in High Heels, but she continues to turn out hard-to-lay-down books with her virtuous, heart-and-soul writing style.  Readers are taken on a hilarious adventure with Kate Palmer in the first book in this new series after she accepts a challenge by one of her travel blog followers.  She’s used to 5 Star accomodations, but this challenge pushes her into new territory as she spends the next six months camping and RVing.  Experiencing a learning curve that led her to nickname the RV she is driving Monster, she begins to question why anyone would actually choose to travel and camp via RV.  She’s surprised by the friendships she begins to make at the very first campground, and this continues from campground to campground.
As Bennett tells of Kate’s travels to New Orleans, Texas and New Mexico, readers begin to see Kate come to appreciate the outdoors.  It’s a romance novel, so naturally a romance starts to blossom as she continually bumps into fellow camper, Brandon.
This is a clean, well-written novel.  Bennett’s descriptions of the many places she sees -like the Alamo and the French Quarter- are explained so well readers will feel like they have seen it too.  The characters are all well-defined, and the story line is progressive.  I believe Camping in High Heels offers a good message of trying something different.  This underlying message encourages readers to do just that.  After all, it isn’t possible to know if one would really like something or not unless they try it.
I can hardly wait to read the next book in the series and see what new adventures Kate and her friends will experience.

The Shiva Syndrome


Alan Joshua
Science Fiction/Paranormal
Science clashes against spirituality in this fascinating science fiction story by Alan Joshua. The SHIVA Syndrome will take readers on a metaphysical journey alongside the main character, Beau Walker. A researcher of parapsychology and a professor, Beau was kicked off of a government project as somewhat of a scapegoat. However, the project he was working on has caused a crater to appear in Russia. This isn’t just any crater. In fact, an entire town and all of it’s people simply vanished into a mile deep hole. Beau’s knowledge and expertise is now of great use to the government, and they basically force him into helping them. What they don’t know is that there’s more to Beau than meets the eye. He has supernatural abilities from being psychic to his uncanny ability to heal others. This is something he’s kept hidden and even rejected after a tragic event involving his sister. Yet, it’s vital that he help discover the cause of the devastation in Russia while protecting humanity.
Alan Joshua does a good job of giving readers a very interesting story while really building strong characters. Yet, there was so much information in regards to religions and spiritual traditions that I believe a lot of readers may feel bombarded. Without some grasp of these various belief systems, readers may feel lost or have to go back and reread some sections. Also, throughout The SHIVA Syndrome the story often jumps to a shamanic-like journey of Beau’s. These sudden jumps were confusing at times. Even so, The SHIVA Syndrome has a wonderful spiritual message around seeing what we believe in or in seeing what we know. Overall, Alan Joshua’s The SHIVA Syndrome allows readers to dive into a metaphysical, yet scientific, read that will have them curious until the very end.

Miriamne the Mandala



"The Yeshua and Miri Novel Series” is a historical-fiction novel series that follows Jesus and Mary Magdalene during the so called "missing years" and throughout their lives. The introductory novel, "Miriamne the Magdala", explores the deeply personal relationship between twelve year old Miriamne and her long lost cousin Yeshua bar Joseph. Their tale begins with an unexpected reunion of two Jewish Houses and goes on to explain how a family brought together by a seeming circumstance is ultimately tied together by Destiny. When a family tragedy strikes, and Yeshua and Miri are placed in a dangerous situation, heavenly forces intervene and a divine legacy that must be kept secret to all but their closest family members is revealed.

From the time of his family’s return from Egypt to Nazareth, Yeshua has grown up shunned and reviled by the townsfolk of his step-father Joseph’s home village. Questions surrounding the authenticity of his parentage along with the strange and unpredictable supernatural powers that seem to control Yeshua have the people of the tiny backwater town suspicious and frightened.

When Yeshua’s mother, Mary, sends a letter to her dearest cousin pleading for help for her gravely ill husband, Miriamne’s mother, Salome, instantly responds. Soon, Salome and her husband, Micah – along with their three children: Martha, Miriamne, and Lazarus – set out for Nazareth on a mission of mercy. During the family’s stay, an old but avid argument causes major upset, especially for young Yeshua who loses control of His staggering powers. As a result of the calamity, the angry townsfolk pounce on the opportunity to band together with their rabbi and the Elder’s Council to banish Yeshua from Nazareth—forever.

Once Yeshua is forced to relocate from his family’s home to his cousin’s huge country estate near Sepphoris, the developing friendship between him and Miriamne flourishes. But just when things seem so hopeful, a sudden turn of events causes Yeshua to choose between taking His own action to avoid a terrible tragedy and His obligation to obey His Heavenly Father’s wishes.

When an astonished Miriamne learns of Yeshua’s true identity and His Mission on this earth, she must then decide whether to continue her relationship with Him or risk losing Him to His Fate. The pressure reaches a breaking point when Miriamne’s wealthy uncle, Joseph bar Abram, and his Caravaneers arrive for a family visit, and Yeshua is presented with a rare opportunity that will take Him far, far away from her . . . quite possibly forever. It is then that Yeshua must make a life-altering decision—whether to follow His heart or fulfill His Destiny.

"The Yeshua and Miri Novel Series" sequentially includes the following five novels:
"Miriamne the Magdala" – released in April, 2015
* "Yeshua the Christ"
* "Thomas the Twin"
* "Mark the Scribe"
* "Princess Sarah"

* Publication dates to be announced.

Nowhere Else I Want To Be



Carol D. Marsh founded, directed, and lived at Miriam’s House, a Washington, DC, residence for homeless women living with AIDS.

From the humorous to the tragic, the mundane to the sublime, Marsh offers a gripping view into a world where the stakes are high and love is pushed to its limit.

Nowhere Else I Want to Be is the story of the inspiring women who transformed Marsh’s life. From Kimberly, who triumphs over a lifelong alcohol addiction, to Alyssa, who dies reaching out for the mother who abandoned her, Marsh witnesses the spectrum of human experience and the depth of the human spirit.

An Enlightening Quiche



Two headstrong women in their forties coming from different moral directions clash within the confines of a French-Canadian mill town in northern Rhode Island's Blackstone Valley. Their narratives relate how an heirloom quiche recipe and baking rivalry redress misconceptions, misdeeds, and maliciousness which wreak havoc on those caught in the crossfire of a tragedy precipitated by reckless conduct. 

Augusta Bergeron: Dysfunctional.  Deceptive.  Demure.  More than meets the eye at face value and stuck in a holding pattern, the town siren engages in morally destructive behavior she attributes to maternal abandonment until she eggs-humes her mother's quiche recipe. 

Lindsay Metcalfe: Pedigreed.  Privileged.  Proper. Mourning the recent death of her mother, the historian-in-residence hailing from Boston sets out to preserve the legacy of an impoverished mill, but gets more than she bargains for all around.
