Madison Moore has some decisions to make.
She’s just finished her secondary studies, and it seems like everyone else knows what she should do with her life. Before she can make up her mind about her future, she plans to take the next year off, so she can catch her breath, have some fun, and explore her options. Soon she finds herself caught between the boredom of home and the thrill of partying, thinking she’s close to a decision. But when she meets the enigmatic Christopher Wright, everything changes. On the surface, he appears to be harmless enough, just a fresh face in the crowd. Even though she’s too blinded by fascination to understand why, her friends do their best to keep her away from him--in vain.
Madison--a remarkably sensitive girl--is caught up in the spell of Christopher, a seemingly indefinable man. As they are grow closer, everything around Madison begins to change form. These alterations are not simply due to the pink cloud of love descending over her eyes. Are her friends right?
Is there more to Christopher than meets the eye?
Everything is moving so quickly, even Madison begins to see that he is different from other men. No one can predict how she’ll react when she learns the truth, that he is a link to another realm.
When--in a moment of crisis--a strange black mark appears on her arm, now all bets are off.
This series of essays throws politically correct ideas out the door and delivers a candid look at the dynamics of modern pop culture thinking. You will find random thoughts on words that start with N and an examination of the thinking of liberals as compared to conservatives, including their different thoughts on global warming.
Look for a fun section on the nature of the human male and also look for a penetrating examination on the chronic condition of “vaginitis” also known as Chronic Complaining Syndrome; (CCS) which describes a small minority of constantly complaining women.
You will also find a few comments on politics and economics, including; “Liberal economist? There is no such thing as a liberal economist. You are either liberal or an economist! Asking a liberal to discuss economics is like asking Satan to discuss Christianity”.
Professor Dave Gordon is about to experience the weirdest, most unpredictably stressful three weeks of his teaching career. As a well-respected clinical psychologist at the height of his profession, he’s ready to prod at a few boundaries in the name of science and learning. He’s challenged himself to find ways of inspiring creativity and emotional sensitivity in his students.
Excited by what he considers a brilliant idea, he decides to use examples of infamous sex scandals involving prominent political figures to illustrate novel principles of psychotherapy. He wants his advanced graduate students to hear new approaches to treating shame and guilt, and to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of compassion and forgiveness.
As each student’s own issues come to the surface--and serious complaints are raised against him--his plan begins to unravel. Dave attempts to deal with the fallout, but is forced to face the implications of his own resistance to change. As he becomes increasingly unhinged and ever more anxious to understand the unexpected price of his intellectual hubris, he has some big questions to face. Where did he go wrong? Have his concerns for gender equality been misjudged? Can he ever forgive himself? What’s next?
Witty, warm and wacky—a spiritual journey of self-discovery

In The Curious Autobiography of Elaine Jakes, author H.R. Jakes offers a fictionalized account of Elaine’s life, telling a variety of stories that involve a romantic ride in an old-fashioned car, a frightening cheese plate, a magic sword, and a cross-dressing monkey. Her story is not one, but many as she humorously reveals time and again how connected her own narrative is to that of her Welsh forebears. During the journey, Elaine, a school teacher in the vivacious and eccentric community of New Hope, Pennsylvania, gains not only an appreciation of the world but also of her heritage, herself, and God.
