Introducing Winfred H. Hensley, Sr., author of The Never Ending Mile

“Sara, my Author Representative, was always there, smiling on the phone while sharing her knowledge and experience when I needed her input.”

Winfred H. Hensley, Sr. was born in Echo, Kentucky where it was about as rural/agrarian as any spot in America in July, 1932. I feel, predictably, I have always had the mind set of a rural American citizen. Until I was seventeen years old I lived, without question, the life of a young rural American. Since then I have lived, all these years, in various urban environments including U.S. ships. My long, varied career path has been largely responsible for such a situation. In looking back at what has developed into a life that presently exceeds the average life span in America I often think of the old saw that begins “Jack of all trades and…”. At various stages I have been a veterinarian medical student, a musician, a war time sailor, a bartender, member of a financial institution as a collector all the way to owner and chairman of the board, a used car salesman, a politician, a dairy farmer, a Sunday School teacher, a parent, a grandparent, a great grandparent and now a writer. During all those endeavors, several attempted simultaneously, my congenital entrepreneurial spirit never faltered. Presently, my wife Bonnie and I live in a small Northern Kentucky town within hailing distance of children, grand children and great grand children.

Praise for The Never Ending Mile and author Winfred H. Hensley: “Your stories help me realize what a small world it is and how we all tie together.” -Glyndon Steele, Hopkinsville, KY

“Mr. Hensley writes in a fluid style that is often lost when story tellers try to translate oral history into the written. ‘The Never Ending Mile’ is like pulling up a chair around the woodstove with a respected elder and hearing the answer to ‘How’d you get here?’ Highly recommended!” -Steve Adkisson Owenton, KY author of Juggernauts

“The newsletter gets better every time and it was always SUPER! I’m so excited-God Bless you!” -Lois Tudor Bradley, Mesa, Arizona

Introducing T.L. Howard, author of Corryn’s Stone

“If you want your book printed by a top quality publisher while maintaining full control over production, including pricing, then Outskirts Press is your publisher.”

T. L. Howard has been fascinated with the “what-ifs” all her life, sometimes to the point of distraction. She is now well into adulthood and still can’t stop asking that question. She was born and educated in the state of Nebraska and currently resides there where she is employed at the university. “Corryn’s Stone” is the long awaited sequel to her first novel, “The Crystal Key.” When not writing, which is seldom as demonstrated by her bad housekeeping, she enjoys needlework, walking, and a good movie.

Book description…

Mirah and Rasmun thought their work was done. The Choosing was accomplished and the world had been set right again. That is until Ayrebis, a mythical Caudex Anima and the same book that had driven Rasmun insane ten years ago, resurfaced. Unlike Mirah, Rasmun knows it isn’t merely sentient. He knows it harbors plans involving the ultimate destruction of humanity as the souls that comprise it strive to complete their long denied quest to become gods. The only thing that can stop Ayrebis is “Corryn’s Stone,” a stone of unfathomable power that opens a doorway into the heavens.

Introducing Sherwin Presley Brown, author of Jamerican: The Gift of Poverty

“They came yesterday: my ten free copies of Jamerican: The Gift of Poverty. Perfectly beautiful, very happy with the result! Thanks for contributing to my goals, dreams and visions or as we all know it — ‘LIFE’.”

Born on the island of Jamaica in dirt-poor poverty, Sherwin Presley Brown was blessed with the personality, great work ethic, and positive attitude that rocketed him to unimaginable heights of success. Through the support and guidance of hard-working parents and siblings, Sherwin is living proof that honest effort and great expectations are truly the path that will lead you anywhere you want to go. The second of nine children born to Thomas and Joyce Brown, Sherwin realized his boyhood dream of coming to the United States in 1982. He graduated from the prestigious University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1986 with a BA in accounting; not bad for a kid who grew up in the jungle and didn’t own a pair of shoes until he was fourteen years old. Mr. Brown became a US citizen in 1988, and went on to distinguish himself as a successful investment advisor. In 2000, after working for only three years with one of the largest insurance and brokerage firms in America, he became the top producer among its 3,000 nationwide representatives. Impressive by any standards, but especially when viewed through the lens of his provincial Caribbean background where even the poor people in his home village of Greencastle, Jamaica, looked upon his family as poverty stricken. Sherwin’s story is the stuff of dreams and is an inspiring rags-to-riches tale all unto itself. Despite his successes in corporate America, Sherwin was not satisfied with a stable, well-paying job and opted to flex his entrepreneurial muscles by developing his own investment models and methods. After three years, he realized his business philosophy differed too significantly from that of his partners, which subsequently led him to found, as sole owner, the aptly named financial services firm Jamerica Financial, Inc. Sherwin currently coaches, writes, and speaks to people about how to improve and safeguard all aspects of their financial portfolios. Jamerican: The Gift of Poverty is the third book by Sherwin. His first book, Safer 401(k) Investing: How to Protect All Your Investments from Wall Street Greed and the Government, was published in 2012. He also co-wrote two children’s book with his 6 year old son Thomas: The Next Door Neighbor Cats with the Funny Names and Why Do We Eat Animals?, which were also just published in 2014 and is available in print and as an eBook. His other book, The Lies of the DOW, will be published in late 2014. For more about Sherwin and his books, please visit www.sherwinpbrown.com.

Book description…

Empowering instructors, students and parents, The ALPHA Equestrian Challenge complements riding lesson programs by giving clear, detailed schooling on: why we need to be good leaders to our horses; how to be good leaders to our horses; and how to prevent our horses from reacting dangerously out of fear. Rich with full color illustrations, this book helps riders develop safe, trusting relationships with their equine partners, while teaching that more than anything Astute Leadership Prevents Harmful Accidents! Developing good riding skills allows the student to have fun in the saddle, but developing good leadership skills allows the student to keep her horse calm and cooperative so her fun time does not turn into a terrifying experience. Riding and leadership are two completely different sets of skills, yet too many riders learn the hard way, through fear and/or injury, that they missed out on the vital “leadership” part of their education. Created to benefit riding lesson programs, The ALPHA Equestrian Challenge is the instructor’s tool for providing their students with the basics of good horse leadership. It empowers instructors to bring along students who are not only good riders, but leaders who know how to keep themselves and their horses safe. The ALPHA Equestrian Challenge empowers students by helping them understand how horses think and behave; it teaches them how to deal effectively with common challenges horses present; it starts students developing groundwork skills so they can get their horses’ calm submission prior to mounting; and lastly, through bomb-proofing exercises, it helps students learn how to get their horses to behave calmly no matter what. This book helps students develop good horse leadership skills on the ground… skills they can carry confidently into the saddle for safer riding. Designed for students of all ages, this book encourages “barn parents” to develop their own leadership skills as well, empowering them to help their children have a safer riding experience.

Book description…

All of us are survivors. Some are physical survivors, having survived death or serious injuries. Others are emotional survivors. A few of us have survived many things in life. Why do some survive, a few numerous times, while others do not? Perhaps it is because the survivor still has an important purpose for being left alive, with mind intact. Is it not a reasonable conclusion to believe that a survivor has a personal Guardian Angel who has the job of keeping him or her alive until that purpose is fulfilled? Does the survivor know the purpose for which he or she has been spared; or perhaps is fulfilling that purpose unawares? When someone has survived time after time; is there a message that he or she should be seeking the purpose for the survivals? This is a story of one person’s numerous survivals and his quest to discover the reason he has been spared and the purpose for which he has been left on the earth. There is also one disappointment in life that has not been survived and from which his Guardian Angel cannot save him. This is a book about survival, by a survivor, for survivors. It may also help others to survive crises encountered in life.
