It's Always Heads

The opioid crisis, a now health crisis; a fund-less crisis teetering on bankrupting rural America, namely West Virginia; the rate of overdose three times the national average. A stone’s worth of pills thrown into the water of us, now rippling toward everything. So what do we do? What do you do?

Blown Away

I recently had the pleasant opportunity to enjoy James L. Haley’s A DARKER SEA: MASTER COMMANDANT PUTNAM AND THE WAR OF 1812, the sequel to THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI. While I have not had the pleasure of reading his first work, the second is a fine place to enter into the story of our hero, Bliven Putnam. Haley does a wonderful job of engaging the reader with an overarching historically factual narrative while writing realistic characters.

The Power of Simple Baking

During a book fair this summer, a Japanese bookseller introduced me to a new word - Tsundoku - which is the act of buying books and letting them pile up unread. I’m sure many of us suffer from this affliction to some degree. Cookbooks are piled on my night stand and have always been a favorite bedtime read.

I especially like a cookbook with a good tale that takes you on a journey on how a recipe comes into being. And when the writer’s passion and love for his subject is as infectious as Jim Lahey’s, you can’t help but be swept along in the romance.

The Evolution of a Story: An Interview with Young Adult Novelist Samantha Mabry

Dallas author Samantha Mabry was sure she’d written an unpublishable book. The manuscript was a young adult novel, a Western set in a futuristic dystopia about a teenage couple deeply in love from the start. Mabry sent it to her publisher knowing full well that the dystopian market was saturated, Westerns for young adults were all but nonexistent and hardly any young adult novels began with a couple already in love.

8 Young Adult Books You Should Try

When adult readers hear the phrase “YA”, they often hear the words, “for teenagers only.” This is unfortunate. From fantasy to current events, YA books are, so to speak, on it.
