ABOUT VALUES IN CONFLICT

Title: Values in Conflict
Genre: Animal Advocate
Author: Georges Dupras
Publisher: iUniverse
Pages: 324
Language: English
ISBN - 978-1-46205-385-8

Values in Conflict: Reflections of an Animal Advocate offers an account of changing and conflicting social values regarding man’s role in the natural world. Author Georges Dupras compels us to think about man’s role in animal suffering and leads us to the inescapable conclusion that we must speak and act for those who have no voice. Dupras presents a pragmatic approach to peaceful coexistence with nonhuman species, without sacrificing idealism. The humane field has developed from a nonprofit mission to a profession over the past forty years addressing questions, comments, and issues that are foremost in the minds of the general public. While highlighting opposing social values, Dupras encourages those who feel marginalized due to their lack of professional training and offers advice to help them find their right path. Dupras also chronicles the evolution of the animal rights movement, one that uniquely transcends differences among species. This thorough review and reflection on both Dupras’s personal experiences and of animal advocacy in general seeks to address questions, comments, and issues that are foremost in the minds of the general public, in hopes that future generations will recognize animals for their intrinsic value, equal in their own rights.

How Far Would You Go to Get or Keep a Man by Marlene Morgan, author of 'Sleeping With a Wall Street Banker'


ABOUT SLEEPING WITH A WALL STREET BANKER

  Sleeping with a Wall Street BankerTitle
: Sleeping with a Wall Street Banker
Author: Marlene Morgan
Genre: Psychological Thriller/Romantic Suspense
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Pages: 322
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-1-48178-874-8

Sleeping With A Wall Street Banker is a psychological thriller that begins when lawyer Alice Francis leaves her life in London for a new start with Wall Street banker Jake Logan in New York. She quickly learns that this is a man consumed by his need to control; he loves but on his terms. When Jake’s ex-girlfriend, Jessica, finds out about Jake’s relationship with Alice, Alice’s life takes a dark turn. For all the trappings of success from a Wall Street career, Jake is a man tormented by the irrational guilt he carries from his past relationship with Jessica. Jessica is unmarried and childless with a biological clock that has all but stopped ticking, and Jake is her back-up plan. Her ultimate goal is to fix Jake’s life by interfering, setting him up, and blackmailing him in an effort to force him into a horrible relationship that was never meant to be. With Alice in the picture, Jessica’s goal is almost certainly a recipe for disaster and a fate equal to death itself. When the plan begins to fail, a mentally unbalanced Jessica resorts to destruction.

HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO GET OR KEEP A MAN?
New York attracts a multitude of young, ambitious and successful people. It’s a draw for highly educated, professional women in the prime of their marrying years. It’s also allures well-educated, highly sexual, money-driven men. But the problem is, there are far more women than men in the mix. Studies have revealed that in New York women outnumber men four to one. This often cited statistic is used to support an argument that the gender imbalance makes it more difficult for some women to find a partner. New York is described as a ‘candy store’ for straight single men on the dating scene, leaving gloomy prospects for young women because the male-to-female ratio is in favor of men.
Commentators have said that more women flock to the Big Apple than men in a bid to have it all but often eligible men are hard to find. More importantly when they find that man, an increasing number are unwilling to commit.  On the one hand, the men that I interviewed said that they do not treat New York as a ‘candy store’ and that it was impossible for good men to get a date in NY. The men argue that the women are insane, that they limit themselves statistically as well as demographically to a tiny pool of men, some of whom are married, yes married, who meet their exacting requirements of a 7 figure salary, looks, and religion. 
On the other hand the women said that a good man is hard to find. It’s the complaint of many women in New York that dateable men are either taken or gay. What are women to do about this quandary?  Some would say leave New York and the East Coast.  What if you do not want to leave New York, and like the woman, Jessica, in ‘Sleeping with a Wall Street Banker’ you have found your man.  How far would you go to get and keep your man? Unmarried, childless and with a biological clock that has all but stopped ticking, Jessica feels betrayed by her ex-boyfriend. She is jealous of the woman who he is having a relationship with her ex-boyfriend and who, in Jessica’s eyes, is “her” person.  Afflicted with Dissociative identity disorder (DID) – multiple personality disorder – she resorts to destruction.

Guest post from David Wind and Terese Ramin, co-authors of 'The Cured


ABOUT THE CURED

  The Cured
Title: The Cured
Author: David Wind & Terese Ramin
Genre: Suspense/Thriller
Publisher: Smashwords
Pages: 274
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-1-48178-874-8

 When over 4000 people world-wide died after taking a cure for cancer, the drug was recalled. But the questions kept coming. Was it contamination? Was it sabotage? Or,was it outright murder by an insane research scientist in retaliation against the pharmaceutical giant he worked for and to avenge the death of his wife?

 And everyone wanted Doctor Donald Brockman! The lawyers wanted answers; the FDA wanted answers and, Homeland Security wanted the doctor!

 When the 911 code flashed across her beeper, Doctor Kira Brockman went cold. The one thing she had been dreading had happened and her life as she knew it had been changed, and the change was for the worst!

 The wrong people had found her father!

She knew she had very little time to get out of the hospital, to find her brother and to run before Homeland Security and the FBI found them, and they were not the only ones: the lawyers who were in the midst of a huge class action suit against the international pharmaceutical manufacturing giant who had sold the cancer cure wanted her and the evidence she had as well as the lethal security team from the drug company who was trying to stop Kira Brockman from disclosing the evidence only she could get—evidence that would save her father—and they would use any means necessary to stop her.

And so begins a heart stopping cross country race to save her father's life and prove he was not responsible for the deaths of 4000 people—The Cured—who had survived cancer because of his medication and then inexplicitly died from the very cure he’d created.

Top 5 thrillers of all time?

The Chancellor Manuscript (Robert Ludlum) – David
The Silence Of The Lambs (Thomas Harris) – David & Terese
Boys From Brazil (Ira Levin) – David
Gorky Park (Martin Cruz Smith) – Terese
99 Coffins (David Wellington) – Terese


Or what makes a good heart-pounding thriller?

From Terese:
For me, a good, heart-pounding thriller is about something that affects its characters at a global level – it’s a “save the world” sort of scenario. I want to care about the characters and their cause, be right on the pages with them as they race toward the conclusion. By their very nature, thrillers have to be page-turners – something I can’t put down, that keeps me up all night reading, or holds up dinner because I have to read just one more page or chapter or… They also have to be filled with consequences that change the course of the characters’ lives – whether those characters are protagonists or antagonists. I want the thrillers I read and those that I write to have plenty of action that builds throughout the course of the book until it simply explodes into the climax and sets me down into a hugely satisfying conclusion. If a thriller doesn’t have that, it’s lost me.

Or how to conduct research for a medical thriller?

From David:
I handle research, be it medical, legal, police procedural in the same way.  I start with basics and move forward.   I look for the book’s earliest references to whatever the subject is I’m researching (usually on the Internet), then I move on to the people who are experts in the areas I am researching.  Once I have an understanding of the subject, I hit the research books and then back go to people so I can get further understanding of what I gained with the book research.  In the long run, I’ve learned it’s the experts, not the books, or the internet, but the people who know their area of expertise  who can explain it to you.  But, and most importantly, in order to truly comprehend what the experts are explaining, the books are a very necessary element.

Interview with Leif Gregersen, author of 'Through the Withering Storm' - Win a Mini Kobo E-Reader

Through the Withering Storm
Mental illness is something that is a great deal more common than many think. Statistics show that 1 in 5 North Americans will require treatment for a major disorder at some point in their lives. This means either you or a family member or friend close to you are very likely to be stricken down by a failure of our most essential and complicated organ in our bodies. When I was first treated for a mental health issue there was so much stigma and misunderstanding about mental illness that I completely denied I had a problem. Despite that mental health issues ran in my family, no one talked about them, everyone shunned those who were different, and as a result I wasted years of my life not understanding that there was help available and that I didn’t just have to ‘tough things out’. My denial and pain was so bad at one point I tried to join the military during the first Gulf War just to find a way out of life, I thought I would either gain the discipline needed to overcome my illness or die trying. I needed neither. Some find my story funny, some find it sad, but it is a story that is being played out among more people than you may think right now, right around all of us. Depression, Schizophrenia, Anxiety, Addiction. It‘s something we can no longer avoid, especially with America now deploying and redeploying troops en masse to combat zones where even the strongest among us can succumb to the pressure of such a situation. It is my hope that those who read this book can walk away from it having had a look inside the mind of someone who lost his mind and one day regained it, but not without first going through incredible pain and suffering. This suffering doesn‘t have to happen. What has to happen is that attitudes and knowledge have to improve.

How long have you been writing? 

I think some of my earliest writing goes back to a sick day when I was in second or third grade. I sat down and made up some rhyming poems, I wish I had saved them or at least showed them to someone. Later in elementary school I would use paper ribbon from the calculator at my Dad’s business to write and illustrate my own comics, mostly war stories or about spaceships. I think I did my first serious piece in grade 8 when we had a contest for our local Legion to write something about the World Wars and I wrote about the pride I felt as an Air Cadet on Rememberance Day, November 11.

When did you first know you could be a writer? 

In grade 11 I had this amazing teacher who cared very little about being liked and cared very much about preparing her students for academic pursuit. We read some amazing books in that class and the teacher explained literature to us better than anyone I had known, and I had the bug. I can even narrow it down to one day, one minute when everything about good literature just sort of came to me and I thought to myself that I could do it, I could put something like that together.

 Who or what influenced your writing once you began? 

I have had a couple of girlfriends who took an interest over the years in what I’ve written, especially before I really published anything significant, and sometimes I think if it weren’t for them reading and enjoying my stuff I would have seen no point in continuing my efforts. Also, I would say as far as authors go Robert M. Pirsig, author of “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” was huge for me because he struggled with a mental illness and put out some incredible writing. I really wish he had written more than the two books he did.

Who or what influenced your writing over the years? What made you want to be a writer?

I guess if I were to be truthful, I would say that I wanted in some way to feel superior to people and to have that one in a million shot of making big money from my writing. I had been told many times after I started though that reasons like that soon fade, and eventually they did, though I have derived a great deal of self-esteem and pride from my writing and I have even made a little money if you count the newspaper and magazine writing I have done. I could be making fairly good money writing for magazines still, but I have a great job that is well-paying and allows me tht time I need to devote to my writing, so I’m not worried at all about things like that which is a huge help.

How did you come up with the title of the book? 

 It took a number of years of tossing around ideas and the title kind of just came to me. The word ‘withering’ came from a comic book I used to love reading about a Tank and crew from World War Two that was haunted by a civil war general. Even after I grew up and moved out I still would look for these comics and enjoyed reading them. In one issue the Tank was described as going through the ‘withering’ fire of the enemy and years later the word just seemed to fit. I have thought about changing the title or the cover of the book so that it tells more about the subject of the book, but the title has kind of become part of the book so if I am going to make any changes, I will save my good ideas for the sequel which is hopefully going to be out soon.

Are there any current books that have grasped your interest?

 I don’t know how much I want to admit it, but I have been doing some in-depth reading of Ayn Rand. When I was younger any writer so conservative would have turned me right off, but now that I see the world through different eyes, I am starting to see the genius of some of her work. She was a great philosopher and an amazing writer. The scope of the work of hers I am reading right now (Atlas Shrugged) is incredible, it must be over 200,000 words. I’ve also taken a recent interest in J.R.R. Tolkien and Frank Herbert’s Dune series. It kind of feels great because there are so many amazing writers and amazing books out there I have just started to discover. I just hope I live long enough to read a lot of them.

ABOUT LEIF GREGERSEN
From a young age I showed promise in writing and poetry, and did well in school. Even in grade five I used to draw and write stories for my own comic books and post them on the bulletin board in class. When I got to high school, I began to read voraciously, and though I failed my first academic English course, I took continually more advanced courses and got higher and higher grades in them. I was hopeful to attend University and study English, but before I finished school I was stricken with a severe breakdown and had to be hospitalized where I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. From that point, family and friend relationships broke down and I ended up sort of drifting until I signed up for Flying School in Vancouver, BC. In the middle of this training, I took off for the US with a friend and tried to join the US Army as a helicopter pilot. All of these adventures are detailed in my memoir, which covers my life from the age of 13 to 21 which was the point at which I decided I had to stay in one place (I had returned to Edmonton near my home town and where my parents lived) and I took treatment for my disorder and began to write seriously. I spent some years just studying and writing poetry and then moved on to short stories, and my book, “Through The Withering Storm” is actually partially short stories I wrote and collected at that time. Now, since I turned 30 I have been living in an assisted-living house for males with Psychiatric Disorders and life has gone quite well. I landed a great job doing labour work/stage hand/security work for the stage and screen Union, IATSE. I have seen many concerts, worked closely with some big stars, and made enough money to continue writing and self-publishing my books, which have already paid for themselves in sales for the most part.
