"This memoir is written with an intense, electrifying energy; for example, when Davis is finally caught by authorities in Venezuela, he says, “I had sworn early on that the only way I would return to America was with pennies on my eyes or in handcuffs.”"

Shirley Greenwood Jones recently retired after 25 years as an academic, teaching Communication and Writing in colleges and universities in three states.
She is now experiencing what she calls “Act ... Read full author bio >
"[The book] doubles as a memoir and a critique of the modern American academy. Greenwood Jones finally found a tenure-track job in California—she spent some years marooned in Pennsylvania, apart from her family—and spent the last 20 years teaching there, in a peculiar state of professional fulfillment and estrangement. Her prose is refreshingly anecdotal, avoiding the turbid vernacular of collegiate communication. The uniqueness of Greenwood Jones’ place in campus culture (she’s a self-professed Mormon Democrat) permits the perch of both the insider and outsider, and the result is a remembrance brimming with common sense, and even wisdom."
Growing up, Clinton Galloway and his family always felt it part of their responsibility to help the less fortunate in their community. After getting his CPA license, he moved from ... Read full author bio >
"Part true-life noir replete with threatening power brokers and sleazy backroom deal-making, part populist courtroom drama with pointed allegations of judicial bias, Galloway’s memoir is an absorbing insider’s take on the sort of cable TV franchise controversy that has erupted in many cities."

"A heart-rending story of the triumph of spirit over circumstance."
Scott Depalma has a BA in Journalism and a MFA in Design. He has worked more than 20 years in the consumer magazine industry. Grandson of a Ghost is his ... Read full author bio >
"Depalma’s prose remains polished throughout, and although the story isn’t always a very sunny tale, its themes of freedom, self-discovery, independence, forgiveness, and resolution lift it to a satisfying place that readers are likely to appreciate. An often poignant and resonant rumination on the enduring effects of abuse and what it takes to overcome, survive, live, and love again."
Robert Gilberg is a retired semiconductor devices executive with thirty five years of experience dating back to the earliest days of transistorized computers to today's world of digital High ... Read full author bio >
"Steve, Alice and their scene-stealing friend, Jim Schmidt, a 'not-so-reformed-ex-hippy with a PhD. in computer science from UCSD', are all incredibly distinct characters with enough personality quirks to be realistic without veering into caricature. They ground the more sensational side of the story in reality.
A fast paced technology tale with enough international intrigue and luxurious details to rival a James Bond adventure."
Emily Christensen, PhD, spends her days swimming in words while being pawed at by little children. She and her husband, musical-theater writer Nathan Christensen, fostered more than 80 children in ... Read full author bio >
"The author has crafted a powerful memoir that skillfully unspools its dramatic anecdotes from Kyrie’s airlift onward, effectively showcasing Christensen’s awe-inspiring commitment to demonstrating her faith... She ultimately engages readers with her musing narrative... A humble and humbling saga of spirituality and service."
