Weeping Willows By B. J. Robinson

buy this book

A young couple tries to outlast another couple and survive a haunted mansion to win a honeymoon in Hawaii. Angela peeked out the window. “They’re beautiful. What are they?”

“Beautiful and deadly if ingested.” Kevin stressed. “Oleander bushes.”

Angela glanced out the window again. “They sure bloom beautiful flowers. It’s hard to think something so pretty could be so deadly.”

“Yes, their beauty is deceptive, like a woman.”

When I was a little girl, Daddy was in the process of building my mother a home on an Angie, Louisiana red cliff. I remember standing on the edge and looking down into what was an abyss to me. Of course, I was small so perhaps that cliff wasn’t as high as it appeared and the gulley may not have been as deep. This story was born out of that experience and the use of my writer’s imagination. Daddy sold the house in Angie before he finished it and moved us to another part of Louisiana so Mom could be near her people. He knew he wouldn’t be around much longer. We lost him when I was four on Christmas Day, so I have only my early childhood memories of Angie, Louisiana, which neighbored Bogalusa, Louisiana, and a paper mill we could smell when the wind blew. When the wind blew just right, we could still smell it all those miles away in our new Louisiana home. This is a contemporary short story set in Louisiana.

Voyage of the legacy by Linda A Scott

buy this book

United Federation of Earth had plans to send colony ships to the stars, many were under construction. One such ship was the Legacy. It was built at one-quarter scale however it was still a huge ship. It mirrored the larger ships in every way; its purpose was to test out a new Warp Core. It was capable of traveling eight times the speed of light.

The Legacy would test the Warp Core, Bio-garden and Medical Units to full capacity and beyond. They would test the Cryogenic Sleep Chamber, and the special healing Medic Units, which were designed for major injuries and illnesses. These healing units could heal the body through a cryogenic type sleep. Instead of freezing the patient they were put in suspended animation.

The Legacy would be self sufficient by mid journey, complete with raising its own crops and animals for food; in addition the ship had two large tanks for fish both salt water and fresh, for the crew to eat. The crew was not all military but some were pioneers young and strong, couples some with children. It was the greatest hope that others not married would marry and produce children. This would be studied by the medical team as well.

If they should come upon a habitable planet, they could deploy the ten townships and start a colony. Sending the Legacy back to Earth with a skeleton crew to give reports and bring back more colony members.

I started writing this book when her husband Lee suffered from a surgery that went so wrong. It almost killed him. The hospital staff let him aspirate after arriving on the floor from recovery. He needed total care for a long time and is disabled now. Lee loved to read so I started telling him stories about the Legacy, later I wrote them down. My book is full of adventure, fun and magic.

About Author Mike Faricy

Hey, thanks for being interested enough to get this far. I’m the oldest of five children, born in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1951, the height of the baby boom. I graduated in 1973 with a degree in history. My very patient wife and I live in St. Paul, Minnesota and Dublin, Ireland.

Immediately after college, I went to work for 3M Company in sales. Not finding the corporate world to my liking, I left 3M and took a job in banking. I liked that even less and entered the Graphic Arts Industry. I loved it and worked in the pre-press (lithographic) industry for over fifteen years. Sadly, the industry no longer exists, replaced by digital cameras and computer programs like PhotoShop. In addition to all that, I’ve been a soldier, a freelance journalist, a bartender, a seller of designer cakes, as well as owner of a painting and decorating company. On the off-chance that none of my paying jobs managed to offend you, I also play bagpipes in the Brian Boru Irish Pipe Band.

All my books are stand alone, read them in whatever order you like. I hope you find them enjoyable page turners, filled with the sort of oddballs we’re curious about but prefer to keep at a distance. None of my characters will be saving the world from terrorism, international banking conspiracies or coups to take over the government. Rather, they inhabit a world just below the surface of polite society, characters with one foot on both sides of the law, and serving not so much as examples, but as warnings. Thanks again for taking the time.

Top off with the sinister Ditschler brothers; Mendel, Lucerne and Elvis, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for another crazy Mike Faricy suspense thriller. An action packed, hilarious tale of crazy people, doing incredibly strange things in pursuit of the almighty dollar.
