Book description…

Dog Man might be the last great Baby Boomer novel. It is the self-told story of Rudi Werner, an engaging Boomer gone bust who learns about change the hard way: He lives it. Battling his demons all the way, Rudi accepts the challenge of opening and operating Dog Man, a kitschy hot dog joint that “serves the best damn wieners on the Jersey Shore.” But Rudi’s fabulous food fling brings him into daily conflict with what he calls The Great American Catastrophe-the election of Donald J. Trump. Rudi gets plenty of help balancing personal and political change from his inspiring love interest, Maria; from his extended Dog Man family; from his quirky, learned “spiritual” advisors, Phillipe and Malachi; and from his loving and loyal Labrador Retriever, Al. The novel provides poignant and humorous insights into modern life, relationships, politics and food, but Dog Man is fundamentally an uplifting tale of personal transcendence for Boomers of all ages.

Introducing Mary Manisero, author of The Sad Lonely Princess

“Everything was beautiful and went smoothly.”

My Name is Mary Manisero. I was born in North East England and my childhood consisted of playing in the woods and meadows. My half sister and brother were in my care when I was young;we had a topsy turvey life. At bedtime, I always made up stories for them after they knew all the fairy tales by heart. I married my husband in 1954 and came back with him to USA when his tour of duty in England was over. I was an Air force, we traveled many states in his 20 years in Air Force. My four children enjoyed the traveling life. I had no time for writing telling stories in 1993. I decided to try a book The Secret Of The Bramble Bush house. Then had 10 grandchildren so I wrote at odd times. I wrote poetry and stories and are in my folder. Now I have 9 great-grandchildren. It’s sad that my husband is not here to enjoy them. He passed away in 2014 after we were two months away from our 60th anniversary. I have 3 books published “The Secret Of the Bramble Bush House,” “Garwood Groundhogs Winter Adventure,” and “Miranda’s Wish.” I really enjoy writing up stories.

A tale of Love, Depression, Despair and Conquest. This is the inspirational story of Ingrid Charlery, an immigrant from St Lucia Island in the West Indies. The book provides a vivid insight to the life of this young woman and how she survived through the power of prayer against seemingly insurmountable emotional pain. Two catastrophic relationships both characterized by blind love and heartbreaking betrayal drag her from the crest of the happiness wave to the treacherous rocks of broken promises and shattered dreams. The events and experiences of abuse, lies and underhandedness provide the foundation of this heartrending story. Ingrid describes in graphic detail how circumstances forced her and her young daughter from a comfortable home onto the dirty and uncomfortable floors in shelters for the homeless. When the true colors of the man she loves emerge, and she discovers she has been living with a psychopathic drug addict she knows she has to escape. But it is not that easy. On the verge of following in her own parents’ footsteps by leaving her daughter in the care of a foster home, Ingrid had planned to go one further and take her own life. Her awakening and new found emotional strength through the power of prayer and the hand of God make this true life drama a spellbinding read. Today, Ingrid is a public speaker and a counselor for the depressed, desperate and suicidal.

Book description…

Common Sense for Teachers and Parents. This book is not written for the elite and sophisticated educator; rather it is just a book for parents and teachers to promote the common sense approach to education. Good common sense can be described as the knack for seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done. Teachers may be smart, dedicated and well educated with the latest progressive methodology, but still fall short in helping children learn. The old school of learning had its faults, yet there were some basic healthy grains among the shaft-grains discarded by elitists. Educators and parents should take another look at education in our schools today. As a Christian, the author finds much wisdom and common sense in the Bible for teaching children. Even non-Christians might find merit in some of those passages that are still timeless: “He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning” (Daniel 2:21 NIV).
