A preacher once asked, “What makes you believe that you are your mother’s child? What proof have you”? The same preacher answered the question: “The only proof you have is because your mother told you so. And you believe her.” The Q&A set me thinking and I arrived at the idea that there could be a possibility where even the mother could not prove that the ‘baby’ she is holding in her arms is hers. This is the case with Tiena’s mother who was ranting and raving, “How can anybody prove that I am not the mother of the baby I carried in my womb for nine months and had her delivered in a recognized ‘maternity hospital’ by a qualified midwife, and there are records to show for that? Read all about the story behind Tiena’s mother’s ranting and raving in the book TIENA.

A family's love is the best kind of love. It is the first love we learn through our parents and siblings. God express his love for us when he gave his only son to save us. Life is a challenge; sometimes the choices and chances we take are wrong, and then there are the ones we learn from that makes us strong. Don't be so quick to give up on one another. You never know when the road will curve in your life. Family or not, be kind and respectful to one another, 'cause in the blink of an eye, things can change. Stop holding on to hate and letting hate take over. Jeanette made the choice to leave and get help for her addiction. She took the chance on putting it off until later. We aren't the judge of one another, so we cannot say or assume she was too late to turn around. What took place between her and God is unknown. Losing Jeanette was a very hard chapter in our lives. Raising her four daughters with so much sadness, hurt, and anger wasn't easy for us. We managed to keep all four girls within the family; holding on to God's grace, we gave plenty of love and patience to raise these four beautiful girls. No one can predict what will happen in our lifetime. We will lose loved ones and friends along the way. Whether it's by a violent crime, accident, sickness, or old age, it will cause deep pain. These four girls lost their mother at a very young age and with no father to lean on. Now they are grown and raising families of their own. A couple's love is a special bond between two people, but to find a special person is to have a bond with God. You can pray to God day and night, but if you aren't living right, he won't hear you. No one is perfect, but to do your best by living by his word, and he will overlook the rest. He loves us unconditionally that is why he laid down on the cross for us. I myself had given up on love because of so many broken promises and failed relationships. I felt this late in life, love wasn't in the stars for me, so I turned it over to God and left it there. And just when I thought all was lost, there he was, an old friend whom I once had the sparkles of a thousand stars for but never expressed it. To me, the time we lost touch had never happened, about four years or so. He was still that tall, handsome, warm-spirited gentleman I met years ago. We continue being friends like no time had passed until he said six words that will be forever imbedded in my heart, "You know I like you, right?" From there, a beautiful relationship was started.

A girl of the desert and a jinni born long ago by the sea, both enslaved to the Salt King—but with this capricious magic, only one can be set free. As a daughter of the Salt King, Emel ought to be among the most powerful women in the desert. Instead, she and her sisters have less freedom than even her father's slaves ... for the Salt King uses his own daughters to seduce visiting noblemen into becoming powerful allies by marriage. Escape from her father’s court seems impossible, and Emel dreams of a life where she can choose her fate. When members of a secret rebellion attack, Emel stumbles upon an alluring escape route: her father’s best-kept secret—a wish-granting jinni, Saalim. But in the land of the Salt King, wishes are never what they seem. Saalim’s magic is volatile. Emel could lose everything with a wish for her freedom as the rebellion intensifies around her. She soon finds herself playing a dangerous game that pits dreams against responsibility and love against the promise of freedom. As she finds herself drawn to the jinni for more than his magic, captivated by both him and the world he shows her outside her desert village, she has to decide if freedom is worth the loss of her family, her home and Saalim, the only man she’s ever loved.

ÔMassacre at MidnightÕ is a fascinating tale of medieval intrigue and revenge in the best traditions of Ômagic realismÕ with a touch of the divine. Set in the Mughal times, the story opens with the covetous Nawaab of Waariaul locking horns with the principled estate-owner of Singhwaar over the possession of LaaDlii and Pyaare, a famed pair of hunting dogs. The Nawaab enlists the support of Mughal army under false pretences, portraying SinghwaarÕs Thaakur as a seditious renegade. The family is massacred to the last man and Singhwaar is laid waste. The widow gives birth to a male heir in a fugue, abandoning the infant in the wilderness. The child is miraculously saved by the benevolent goddess Vana-Durgaa and becomes her favourite. When he comes of age, Destiny takes him to the imperial court at Delhi for a show-down with his fatherÕs murderer, witnessed by the Great Mughal himself. Based largely on folklore, ÔMassacre at MidnightÕ is replete with enchanting old world belief in miracles, spirits protecting family fortunes and poetic justice for the unjust as well as glimpses of life in medieval Mithilaa.

Description :


Pursuit, a tale of impassioned romance written in the shadow of Romeo and Juliet, is woven into a tumultuous era when man's inhumanity to man was consumed by greed and cold-hearted indifference. It was a time that bore witness to the "Atlantic slave trade" when millions of black Africans were kidnapped or sold and then packed like sardines in the hold of a ship to be carried in chains across the "Middle Passage" to become beasts of burden. Set in nineteenth century Guiana, a British colony in South America where sugar and coffee plantations flourished, Pursuit's backdrop is a frozen moment in time when a planter, deprived of a conscience, employed a whip and deprivation to control his human chattels. Rising from the ashes of a slave rebellion was the memory of a man who would grow in stature to become a national and international symbol of the perniciousness of human subjugation-a slave named Quamina. Thus, Pursuit, in part, is a tribute to his unsung legacy. Frederick and Bethel had two differing complexions. He was white and free, while she was black and enslaved. Fate toyed with their lives, although it knew that they were always meant to be together. But providence can be both generous and fickle in its disposition. Would Bethel and Frederick be lovers removed from harm's way? Or, would they be Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers, forbidden to be together until united by death? BRETT STEPHAN BASS is an attorney-at-law who began his professional career specializing in corporate litigation and appellate work. Leaving an active legal practice to become a business entrepreneur, he retired at age 50 to study science, art, literature, religion, and philosophy, to travel the world with his wife, Rosalind, to hone his skills as a photographer, and to write extensively about a variety of life experiences. He and his wife reside just outside of New York City.

Description :


Fourteen bold, dynamic, and daring women take the stage in this collection of women's lives and stories. Individually and collectively, these writers and performers speak the unspoken and perform the heretofore unperformed. The first section includes scripts and essays about performances of the lives of Gertrude Stein, Georgia O'Keeffe, Mary Church Terrell, Charlotte Cushman, Anaïs Nin, Calamity Jane, and Mary Martin. The essays consider intriguing interpretive issues that arise when a woman performer represents another woman's life. In the second section, seven performers--Tami Spry, Jacqueline Taylor, Linda Park-Fuller, Joni Jones, Terri Galloway, Linda M. Montano, and Laila Farah--tell their own stories. Ranging from narrrative lectures (sometimes aided by slides and props) to theatrical performances, their works wrest comic and dramatic meaning from a world too often chaotic and painful. Their performances engage issues of sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, loss of parent, disability, life and death, and war and peace. The volume as a whole highlights issues of representation, identity, and staging in autobiographical performance. It examines the links among theory and criticism of women's autobiography, feminist performance theory, and performance practice.

Luke 10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village, and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. This short story in the Book of Luke indicates that Martha, Mary, Lazarus, and Jesus were dear friends. It is possible they met at her house often. There is a middle eastern tradition of hospitality to strangers. So it is also possible travelers were accorded hospitality at Marthas as well. I chose Marthas house as the place where stories were shared and expanded those stories. It is exciting to flesh these stories out with characters that might have been there, telling their stories as well. These stories are fun and interesting to read and they make great dramas. Read and enjoy them, or create dramas from them. You will receive a perspective on the Bible that is both thrilling and personally enlightening.
