Eunice Boeve Author- RIDE A SHADOWED TRAIL

RIDE A SHADOWED TRAIL

by Eunice Boeve

Joshua Ryder figured Pete’s words would stick in his mind the rest of his life. “You know, son, most all of us at one time or another ride a shadowed trail. Ain’t no one’s got a clear, unblemished past or family ties they’re always proud of.”

If you love a novel of the old west where family and young love is in equal measure to cattle drives and outlaws, then RIDE A SHADOWED TRAIL is for you.

Lourdes Vazquez Author- NOT MYSELF WITHOUT YOU

NOT MYSELF WITHOUT YOU

by Lourdes Vazquez

In NOT MYSELF WITHOUT YOU, a working-class Puerto Rican family of the 1950’s lives surrounded by spirits, ghosts, and witches, a result of incantations performed in the living room. Chronicling nearly two decades of the famaily history- including their occult activities- the story involves characters who are centered in Puerto Rico but who move through the Caribbean, Central American, Spain, and New York as they are pulled by the economic, political, and social coditions of the times as well as by their own intense desires. Lacking the tools to understand the complexity of the world around them, these beings often travel without a clear concept of place or time, envoloped in a constant aura of exile. As their stories come to light through fragments of prayers, sayings, poems, newspaper articles, and excerpts from books- a sort of family scrapbook-the characters themselves speak to a wide range of issues in voices that are famailiar and humorous. Based on oral history and reseach, NOT MYSELF WITHOUT YOU is the author’s own memoir with a strong fictional twist.

Lourdes Vazquez is the author of numerous works of fiction, poetry, essays, and interviews that have been published worldwide. Her most recent full-length works include the script A PORCLAIN DOLL WITH VIOLET EYES, STARING INTO SPACE (WHELHOUSE MAGAZINE, 2009); SAMANDAR:BESTIARY (Bilingual Press, 2004). In 2002 she was a winner of the prestigious Juan Rulfo prize for short story. She has contributed to many journals, newspapers, and anthologies, and she is working on two more books.

Ethel Lee-Miller Author- People are talking about THINKING OF MILLER PLACE

THINKING OF MILLER PLACE

by Ethel Lee-Miller

“Ethel Lee-Miller’s memoir of her summers spent in Miller Place, NY on Long Island during the 1950’s is a delightful escape from the everyday. Through word choice and vivid recollections, she paints a detailed picture of life-impacting, indelible moments. For readers with similar vaction experiences, the book serves as a catalyst for memories. Others will also be impressed by the love and overall “feel good” moments as Ethel recounts how Miller Place acted as a security blanket for her family.”- Lynda Starr

“Who says we can’t go back to the beach of our childhood? In this charming memoir, Ethel Lee-Miller has captured those memories. The lazy, hazy days of an era when summer was truly ‘a summer’ all come alive in this gem of a book. Lee-Miller’s gift for description vividly endows memories of life, family and growing up over six years of summer vacations. Viewed through the eyes of a child, vignettes are enhanced with adult insight. Doubling our pleasure, Lee-Miller is an identical twin, the reader shares in the unique bond.”- Michaele Lockhart, author, COMING HOME, & LAST NIGHT AT CLAREMONT

In her wonderful book, Ethel Lee-Miller reminds us of the power of memory to restore us to a safe place we can go to renew our spirits… …Ethel has lovingly recreated the sights, sounds, smells, feelings of a shared time when she was quite simply, a happy child. And shared it well. Thank you, Ethel, for reminding us that we can do the same.”- Wendy Dobler Author, THE GURU NEXT DOOR

Wonderful, and what a gift! Miller Place was also my summer retreat- still is- your memories awakened and brightened so many daily moments of Miller Place reference. My aunt and parents bought a log cabin in 1930…a magical place for a city child… Hearfelt thanks for a beautiful memoir.” Anita Daly Kapp, NY
