Captain Josian A. Storn needs a lifeline.

The scientists want to study him. Space Fleet wants to court martial him. Half the Lunar colonists want to turn him over to Earth security forces as a peace offering and the other half want to use him to start a war with Earth.

And in the middle of the maelstrom, Storn has to locate his crew, escape his cell, and lead a fleet of ships into the unknown.

He’d refuse but for one thing. He is the lifeline for the human race. Prepared or not, briefed or not, he has no option but to go… and succeed.

The clan is waking. After centuries of spellbound sleep, dragon-shifters are returning to the mountains. They are few in number, and the outside world has become overrun with humans.

Huroth, the dragon chieftain, recognizes a need for his kind to adapt, by forming alliances and mate-bonds with humans, but his clan is divided. From the first time she meets him, Lady Orwenna is drawn to the magnificent chieftain. The mind link he forms with her is both fascinating and frightening, as is the powerful attraction she feels for him. If only she knew what was in his heart.

Does he want her for the woman she is, or for her magical abilities? When war breaks out between kingdoms and ancient enemies of the dragons resurface, the clan will be tested. In the midst of uncertainty, can Huroth and Orwenna find their way together?

The Home Front – A Different Kind of War

Programs by local experts are great ways to acquire information. A favorite tip of mine is to take a topic and look at it differently–to write about a dfiferent aspect. One example is the talk, “The Home Front: Matawan During World War II” being held to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.

Traditionally, Veterans’ Day programs cover an individual soldier, a unit, or a particular battle or conflict. The focus of the presentation will be what “Total War” was like for those who were left behind in town when others went off to fight in distant parts of the world, to defend our way of life. All residents were involved in different ways.

The Home Front: Matawan During World War II

Presented by Al Savolaine
Matawan Town Historian and the
Commander of American Legion Post 176.

Sunday, November 8 at 2:00 PM.
At the Woman’s Club of Matawan
199 Jackson Street, Matawan New Jersey

Refreshments will be provided after the program
(No admission fee; donations gratefully accepted.)


And in the tradition of Armistice Day, later Veteran’s Day, at the 11th hour of the 11th month,
the American Legion Matawan Post 176 and the Matawan Historical Society will hold a memorial service to honor veterans.

Wednesday, November 11th at 11:00 A.M.
At Rose Hill Cemetery, 
Ravine Drive, Matawan NJ
All are welcome

One event feeds the mind, the other the soul. As writer’s we need both.

To all who served on the frontlines, thank you for your service.

~Till next time. Helen

Blurb:
Nineteen-year-old Elizabeth ‘Beta’ Camden is a survivor.

When the E’mani—those pale alien freaks—destroy Earth with a plague of madness and scoop up the remains, Beta is one of the ‘lucky’ ones. For years, she endures their tortures, experiments and games. Then one day, she manages to escape their ship with her life, and no memory of her time with them.

Stranded on their world, Beta wanders the mountains, looking for a way home. She stumbles onto the Fost—the E’mani’s ancient enemy. Their war with the E’mani is old and rooted in magic that the Fost once had and the E’mani crave. Magic Beta soon discovers she’s developing along with strange tattoos and disturbing glimpses of her past. The Fost take her in and train her in their ways. As she spends more time with them, she falls in love with their culture and with Marin—he of the hot hands and slit eyes.

But the E’mani took her for a reason and they want her back—dead or alive. If Beta doesn’t remember that reason soon, they’re all going to die.
