Please Stay

Please Stay (2018) describes an actual health crisis after the author’s longtime partner was struck down by a sudden brain hemorrhage. Employing actual correspondence which updated friends, colleagues and loved ones through long emails at the end of each of 24 ICU days; text messages sent back and forth to to family as things unfolded; and photos documenting events as they happened the reader experiences the fears and prayers of all involved in a medical crisis.

Please Stay is a book that one person described as ‘more of a love letter at times, than a memoir.’ It’s a unique story of love and survival that speaks to people across boundaries of health and wellness; a story of faith and hope and love. Replete with tender anecdotes, the book calls readers to question their own legacies and to celebrate their lives and the love of the people in them.

CACHE!

Family fortunes of paper money, gold & silver coins, silver plate, jewels and jewelry; train robberies, stagecoach robberies, gold nuggets and gold dust from labors in the goldfields, bars of gold & silver and more. Large and small, caches have been buried in the ground, hidden in caves, or otherwise concealed to keep the valuables from the hands of those to whom it did not belong (or from whom they did belong). In this first volume, the author has recounted fifty stories of people who hid their wealth to keep it safe, only to lose the hoard because of death, distance, failing memory or changing landscape. Fifty one maps and 44 aerial photographs accompany the stories. The author also provides sound tips, techniques, and procedures on research, ground reconnaissance, ground search, and recovery. Whether you are a part time treasure seeker, full time treasure hunter, or professional armchair adventurer, this book will entertain and inform, and perhaps lead you to the discovery of a long lost pot of gold cached long ago.

The international Madam

Nives Gadoni decided long ago that dreams are to be followed and nothing would hold her back. Her mind was set, plans were made, and she left Switzerland for the U.S. There she stood on the soil of America, the land of dreams and opportunities, which became her new home. In her mind her plan wasn’t elaborate or unobtainable, it was safe. She set out to become an actress.

Nives loved New York City, and she thought it loved her in return. Acting professionally soon became a fantasy as she realized being a struggling talent didn’t earn enough money, respect or a VIP ticket into where she wanted to be. Time was of the essence in this fast paced city, and her tiny frame needed to move faster to keep up. The pulse of the streets gave her momentum. With new friends and new aspirations propelling her forward, her dreams soon became a reality. Before she had time to add more designer shoes to her collection, she was blinded by the bright lights and sucked into the seedy underworld of “The City That Never Sleeps.”

Small feet didn’t mean small steps for Nives; she was moving fast. Before she could learn that stiletto heels and the New York City streets didn’t always mix, she found herself reaping the rewards from a thriving escort agency. In just a short time, she had amassed a fortune from seven states and four continents. But for Nives that wasn’t enough.

Her reputation for reliability was growing, as was her business. As her client base grew, her ability to get what she wanted, when she wanted became the driving force that motivated her. She lived by the principle, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” So whatever the client wanted, the client received. Nives became addicted to this new lifestyle, and she loved every goddamn second of it! She was built for it all, the ups, downs, drama and scheming.

Just like everyone else who gets caught up in the fast pumping valves of New York City’s heart, red flags were raised, but she failed to heed the warnings. The thrill began to cloud her judgment and reduce the visibility of where she was going.

Now she needed to fight to survive in a game that was more dangerous than she realized. Nives had to apply her street smart wit and survival skills in an environment few were lucky to escape. And as quickly as the Bellinis she once enjoyed at Cipriani’s flowed passed her lips, Nives’ dream come true turned into her nightmare.

Sitting in the headquarters of the DEA, charged with twelve counts of an A-1 Felony for possession of a controlled substance, she wondered how it all collapsed. The good fortune she once experienced, and steady achievements were now gone.

The International Madam is a story of character, strength, dreams and nightmares created by the choices made to obtain the American Dream.

The Animated Marx Brothers

To many people, The Marx Brothers always seemed cartoonish. Small wonder that film animators plucked their personas from their first appearances in The Cocoanuts (1929) and Animal Crackers (1930) and caricatured them in countless animated appearances in theatrical cartoons. Their animated likenesses have since been wisecracking in television cartoons, direct-to-video movies, fan films, commercials, flip books, avatars, emoji, a slot machine, and two TV pilots so rare they were once thought not to exist.

At last, Marx Brothers fans can rejoice. Matthew Hahn’s search for every animated appearance of a Marx brother has trailed longer than Groucho’s coattails. His discoveries include the backstories of the studios, moviemakers, and stars, rare test drawings from the Smithsonian Institution National Portrait Gallery, abandoned projects, connections, coincidences, and apocrypha.

Equations of a Being: A Being who gathered Moss

If you have a penchant for both reason and abstractness, this intriguing piece of literature shouldn’t be missed. Equations of a Being beautifully coalesces the author’s thought pieces pertaining to the existential spectrum. Never has there been a book that blended emotions, intellect, and imagination so seamlessly, to celebrate a being in totality.
The author depicts his artistic persuasion, the enriched and disintegrated fragments of his existence, and the conclusions based on his interactions with the physical and abstract elements of life in a compelling and unbridled manner.

It’s a book for the ages that will let you trace the complete trajectory of a being and realize that a being has been and will always be a convergence of his tryst with abstractness, his acceptance of vulnerability, and his surge for virtuosity.

Taking Charge of Cancer: What You Need to Know to Get the Best Treatment

A critical resource for anyone with a cancer diagnosis. Written by a radiation oncologist and cancer researcher, Taking Charge of Cancer offers an insider’s guide to understanding and receiving the best treatment options, choosing the right medical team, and approaching this difficult time with knowledge and hope.

Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be terrifying, and the first thing you probably want to know is: How am I going to survive this? Cancer care requires decisions from numerous professionals, delivering treatments that are potentially life-saving, but also potentially dangerous and life-threatening. The chances of cure and survival for any given patient depend on the expertise of the cancer team, and whether procedures are in place to ensure that cancer care is delivered properly. So, how can you make sure you choose the right treatment team and ensure the best chances of survival and long-term health after being diagnosed with cancer?

Taking Charge of Cancer is a different type of book for cancer patients-one that goes beyond the cancer information that is currently available, allowing you to truly take control of your cancer treatment. You’ll learn how to obtain and understand medical records, and why these records are critical to your care. You’ll also find the tools you’ll need to determine if the recommendations made by doctors are in keeping with accepted treatment guidelines. You’ll discover how doctors use evidence to decide which treatments are best, as well as how doctors can become biased in their recommendations. And, most importantly, you’ll be able to evaluate whether surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy make the most sense in your specific case-and whether or not these serious treatments are being delivered effectively and safely according to the highest standards.

The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern: A Complete History

A complete history of Toronto’s legendary Horseshoe Tavern, “the Birthplace of Canadian Rock,” to coincide with its seventieth anniversary.

Like the Queen Street strip that has been its home for seven decades, the Horseshoe Tavern continues to evolve. It remains as relevant today as it did when Jack Starr founded the country club on the site of a former blacksmith shop. From country and rockabilly to rock ‘n’ roll, punk, alt/country, and back to roots music, the venerable live music venue has evolved with the times and trends — always keeping pace with the music.

Over its seventy-year history, the Horseshoe has seen a flood of talent pass through. From Willie Nelson to Loretta Lynn, Stompin’ Tom Connors to the Band, and Bryan Adams to the Tragically Hip, the Horseshoe has attracted premier acts from all eras of music. In The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, David McPherson captures the turbulent life of the bar, and of Canadian rock.

This is the tale of one young man’s journey through the labyrinth of American higher education, stymied by haughty professors, an inept administration, and ridiculous policies. In the process, he nearly lost his desire for academic learning and his reverence for the educational system, and came close to losing his will to live.

Across the United States, graduate students are increasingly finding themselves caught in a vortex of burgeoning loans, byzantine policies, and administrative lassitude. The casualties, as this book makes clear, are the next generation of American minds.

Whether we are looking for a pathway to our Self or just want to be reminded of the inner qualities we desire to nurture, Rise of the Good Wolf is a refreshing and enjoyable read for all of us who seek to deepen the bond to our authentic Self. In order to nurture our True Self, we must first expose insecurities and fears that block us from our Truth. From the folklore story of the Good Wolf and the Bad Wolf, two voices are found; one represents our True Self and the other our False Self, making it easier to locate them. Rise of the Good Wolf takes us on a journey and inspires us. Whether we are learning about the life of John Henry Newton – the writer of the hymn Amazing Grace, the plight of Hawaii’s last queen – Lili’uokalani, or the author’s touching stories about navigating through experience to locate her own Truth, the reader is constantly invited to locate their own stories within these pages. Instead of feeling threatened by the idea that we can cause our Self and others harm by nurturing false truths, the Good Wolf inspires us to want to discover false truths, expose our insecurities, and celebrate in the space we have freed.
