Foundation for a Well-Ordered You



Are you looking at your life through positive thinking? 


After facing a lot of negative relationships and/or being accused of being a negative source, I felt the need to do a thorough selfexamination by looking at myself in the mirror to see where my faults were. I needed to discover how I could include this self-examination in my daily walk without being sidetracked. I needed to stay on a positive track and move to the next level in life. I needed to stop slipping through the cracks of depression, low self-esteem, insecurity, and fear. All of these things threatened my spiritual foundation. By praying, studying God‟s word, and applying it to my everyday life, and its challenges, I am now able to build up my spiritual house and look at myself in the mirror with confidence.



My Lonely Room



Life wasn't so great when you didn't have much of a relationship with your parents or the ability to play street games while growing up in the fifties. You would rather be secluded in your lonely room, using your imagination to write stories and draw comic books than to be drowned in negativity by your mother or humiliated by your peers. All of this can change for Jimmy Yadenik when he meets Johnny, his soon to be mentor and member of the Vandals, a street gang, and he applies for membership. But the transition won't be easy.

Fans of dark paranormal romance will love the Keepers of Eternity series by Devyn Quinn!


“Devyn Quinn writes compelling characters, a chilling and gripping story, and a setting that is easily seen within your mind’s eye.” —Rogues and Romance Reviews


Morgan Saint-Evanston has prevailed over every demented beast sprung from the otherworld, but now he finds himself tormented by an earthside foe who could destroy everything he’s built in the mortal realm. Forced to turn to a magickal ally to preserve the sanctity of Blackthorne Manor and safeguard its secrets, he discovers that the bewitching creature’s services come at a chilling price: the very part of his soul that harbors his humanity.


Julienne Blackthorne is bonded to Morgan by blood, but the emotional and erotic ties that bind them are fraying as his lost humanity sends him spiraling downward to the furthest extremes of darkness and depravity. As Julienne struggles to save the man she loves from utter and eternal ruin, she must delve into her own dark powers at the risk of forsaking her sanity.


As Morgan and Julienne steel themselves to do battle with his greatest inner demons and those who would deny him his legacy, they must confront the very real threat that his fragmented psyche will lead him to the edge of self-destruction—and the destruction of all they hold dear, both in this world and in their hearts.

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.

Karma "A Book of Short Poems"



At the age of five my Mom died, and from that point on my dad raised me. I must admit, he did a really good job. I keep all of my emotions bottled up inside, so writing is my way of releasing feelings I try to hide. I've been writing since I was in middle school, and as I matured so did my writing. My poems are my interpretations of my experience with relationships, friendships, and family. Whether it's good or bad the best way for me to express myself is through my writing. I'm also proud to say I'm a domestic violence survivor; because it didn't kill me, it only made me stronger. I didn't plan on doing anything with my gift until something I read not too long ago. It said something along the lines of,"If God gives you a talent then you need to use it". From that point on I made it my mission to publish a poem book. So now I am sharing my gift with all of you. Enjoy!
