THE WAY OF THE JAGUAR
by Francisco X. Stork
SECOND PRIZE, CHICANO/LATINO LITERARY CONTEST, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, IRVINE
On death row in a Texas prison, a wealthy lawyer is writing his memoirs and pursuing a course of physical and spiritual development called “the way of the jaguar.” He takes us back to the day when a seemingly harmless act- stamping out a neighbor’s spring-cleaning fire – leads to the loss of his career and marriage, the search for a lost love in his hometown of El Paso, and murder.
“…a splendidly intense debut, salted with irony and peppered with truly sexy sex- a blend of magical realism and gritty realism.”- Publishers Weekly

Wendy (Philomena) Green announces her newly published memoir, MIRROR IMAGE.
“When the silence of my childhood was let out in the sun, everything exploded around me and I was propelled back to the bastard child living in poverty-stricken rural Ireland during and after WWII. They called me Lily McCarthy, but I didn’t look like a McCarthy, and I never felt I belong in the family. All my young life, I waited in fear for the woman in the motorcar to come and take me to the orphanage. It was many years later, when my children pursued their Irish heritage, that I discovered my true identity and met my mirror image.”
MIRROR IMAGE was published by Createspace in print form and by Smashswords in ebook form. It is available on http://www.Amazon.com, http://www.Barnes&Noble.com, and in all ebook formats.
