**HONORABLE MENTION IN THE 2014 HOLLYWOOD BOOK FESTIVAL** From IndieReader.com review: "CRYO-MAN is an interesting look at a future where robots and humans battle for survival in the aftermath of a great war. Niko’s adventures through this wasteland to recover his lost memories set the stage for an unusual look at life after an apocalypse. The world of CRYO-MAN is rich with detail and ripe for a series." Nikolas Edwards has a lone memory: he follows his young son around their house, playing and laughing, as any normal father would with his boy. But Nikolas is very sick and the memory ends with his death, though not before he has his son make a very important phone call... When Nikolas awakens next, he is no longer the man he used to be and no longer lives in the world he once knew.
He has changed dramatically, more than he imagined a human possiby could. Cryonics has given him a second chance at life, but it has taken away nearly every memory he once knew, leaving only the final moment before his human death. But the thought of his son remains, tethering him to a past he desperately wants to remember. Though the world is no longer controlled by humans, he sets off to learn about his family by any means necessary, even though what he's become makes him an enemy to all.

Is poverty a fact of life? Can the wealthiest nation in the world do nothing to combat the steadily rising numbers of Americans living in poverty - or the 50 million American's living in 'near poverty'? Senator Edwards and other prominent scholars, businesspeople, and community activists say otherwise.
Manhattan is the tale of a young French scholar who travels to the United States in 1965 on a Fulbright Fellowship to consult the manuscripts of beloved authors. In Yale University's Beinecke Library, tantalized by the conversational and epistolary brilliance of a fellow researcher, she is lured into a picaresque and tragic adventure. Meanwhile, back in France, her children and no-nonsense mother await her return. A young European intellectual's first contact with America and the city of New York are the background of this story. The experience of Manhattan haunts this labyrinth of a book as, over a period of thirty-five years, its narrator visits and revisits Central Park and a half-buried squirrel, the Statue of Liberty and a never again to be found hotel in the vicinity of Morningside Heights: a journey into memory in which everything is never the same. Traveling from library to library, France to the United States, Shakespeare to Kafka to Joyce, Manhattan deploys with gusto all the techniques for which Cixous's fiction and essays are known: rapid juxtapositions of time and place, narrative and description, analysis and philosophical reflection. It investigates subjects Cixous has spent her life probing: reading, writing, and the "omnipotence-other" seductions of literature; a family's flight from Nazi Germany and postcolonial Algeria; childhood, motherhood, and, not least, the strange experience of falling in love with, as Jacques Derrida writes, "a counterfeit genius."
The storm led me to Padthaway. I could never resist the allure of dark swirling clouds, windswept leaves sweeping down cobbled lanes or a view of the sea stirring up its defiant nature. The sea possessed a power all of its own and this part of Cornwall, an isolated stretch of rocky cliff tops and unexplored beaches both enchanted and terrified me. It is not a lie to say I felt drawn out that day, led to a certain destiny...
So begins this new mystery series. Young Daphne du Maurier, headstrong, adventurous, and standing at the cusp of greatness. Walking on the cliffs in Cornwall, she stumbles upon the drowned body of a beautiful woman, dressed only in a nightgown, her hair strewn along the rocks, her eyes gazing up to the heavens. Daphne soon learns that the mysterious woman was engaged to marry Lord Hartley of Padthaway, an Elizabethan mansion full of intriguing secrets. As the daughter of the famous Sir Gerald du Maurier, Daphne is welcomed into the Hartley home, but when the drowning turns out to be murder, Daphne determines to get to the bottom of the mysteries of Padthaway—in part to find fresh inspiration for her writing, and in part because she cannot resist the allure of grand houses and long buried secrets. 'Murder on the Cliffs is an enthralling mystery that gives fictional life to the inspiration behind Daphne du Maurier's classic 'Rebecca'.
