  • FREEBORN

    FREEBORN

    The human and non-human races do not mix; to be a half-breed is to be a pariah. This truth rules the life of a young half-elf boy named Freeborn. His sole friend is Tishamon, an elven woodsman, who frequently visits the boy. Tishamon adopts Freeborn, taking the boy along on his life of wandering, working and learning.

    When Tishamon becomes lamed, he settles in the Fire Hills and sends Freeborn to the local academy. The Fire Elves’ obsession with family lineage, and Freeborn’s contempt for the same, ends in violence, starting Freeborn on the trail to ever greater adventure.

  • Ghost Wolf: A New Adventure Novel

    Ghost Wolf: A New Adventure Novel

    Ethan and Eva Thomas live on a sheep ranch with their father and aunt. As an avid amateur photographer of local wildlife, twelve year old Ethan deplores hunting and guns of any kind. As an animal lover, he maintains a small “trauma ward” in the back of his father’s barn where he nurses wounded animals back to health, then frees them into their natural habitat.
    Eva, his ten year old sister, inherited more of her father’s genes and as a consequence, loves guns and hunting and aspires to be a big game hunter and explorer in the Alaska wilderness. Although both enjoy ranch life and the great outdoors, their different natures are constantly at odds with each other.

    Then, then, is the story of how a gentle-hearted boy and his tomboy kid sister meet the challenge of dealing with a mysterious white wolf and a terrifying grizzly bear aptly named, “Ol’ Lucifer” who roams the foothills of the Grizzly Mountain Range.

    Richard Haesche

    THE TALETELLER

    Whose stories have…

    a beginning to grab you,
    a middle to hold you
    and an ending to haunt you!

    Richard lives in a small town in Connecticut. He spent most of his life working as an accountant and field auditor specializing in finance and taxes. It wasn’t until after he retired from the work force that he found the time to prioritize his creative aspirations by becoming a compulsive writer. After graduating from The Institute For Children’s Literature in Westport, Connecticut, he began writing Young Adult and Middle-Grade Juvenile novels. His writing environment consists of a small room, a big desk, a computer, a couple of printers and his inventory of paperback novels.

    Anxious to begin writing, he wrote his very first young adult novel in thirty days. After revising, editing and formatting phases were complete, his first manuscript was sent to publishing houses all around the United States, only to return each time accompanied by the standard rejection slip.

    Undiscouraged, he wrote five more novels, both young adult and mid-grade juvenile plus a large collection of children’s short stories and poems, all of which he will soon begin to market on his website: www.kreativexpressionsonline.com

    They will appear not only in paperback form, but also able to be downloaded as E-Books for people to read on their handheld PDAs. Additionally, he will be marketing his works on CDs and, if things go well, perhaps as audio books.

  • Hairmythology – The Origin of Hair Diversity: Uncover Your Hairitage – A New Hair Grading System That Dispels the “Bad Hair/Good Hair” Myth

    Hairmythology – The Origin of Hair Diversity: Uncover Your Hairitage – A New Hair Grading System That Dispels the “Bad Hair/Good Hair” Myth

    People, all over the world, tend to subscribe to the ‘bad hair/ good hair myth’ as a benchmark for grading hair-quality; if not for themselves, then, for others.

    Historical facts, scientific facts, and fiction merge together in a dramatic, contemporary, background story, that sets the stage for demonstrating how differences in our ‘hair-quality’ came about.

    This book includes a workbook and reflection section which challenges the reader not only to rethink the “bad hair/good hair myth”, but to possibly, deconstruct it.

    This book, therefore, gives birth to a new Hair-Grading-System: “Good Hair/No-Bad Hair!” This system validates all hair types, and subsequently, all human beings. Hair diversity needs not spell, hair a-d-v-e-r-s-i-t-y. Simply, biodiversity!

    Recommended for children, teens and adults of all hair types, including bald.

  • Hands Across The Sea

    Hands Across The Sea

    What happens when real talk gets a little too real? That’s the 800-lb. gorilla confronting the Office of the Sheriff.

    This character-driven saga puts the rear echelon in the crosshairs as Brian Cook gives it to you straight, no chaser with his debut vehicle, Hands Across the Sea.

    Hands Across the Sea delves into the professional and personal sides of the badge where the rubber really meets the road. Explore how the Command staffers of The Office of the Sheriff, known as the Agency, come face-to-face with the unexpected: the changing of the guard.

    Their larger-than-life Sheriff, Garrison Cottrell, abruptly resigns and passes the torch to his hand-picked successor – Brendan Callaghan.

    Explore how their egos and isms intertwine with their leadership styles and principles, and come to light during professional and personal situations that will test their character and patience beyond enforcing the law. Gear up for what happens when the door shuts and the dialogue begins, and sometimes not in that order.

    Cook doesn’t just peer back the curtain, he pulls it down with a look inside the Agency that often takes on the guise of Peyton Place. But we’re talking about professionals, right? Hands Across the Sea is the first in a literary series.

  • Heirs of Abraham

    Heirs of Abraham

    More than ever before, we learn about today’s Middle Eastern wars as the animosity between the Arab world and Israel escalates. “Will there ever be peace?” everyone asks.

    Attempting to answer that question, Heirs of Abraham is a historical family saga stretching over a time span of almost four thousand years. Starting in 1948 when the State of Israel was founded and ending with terror in Jerusalem in modern times, it follows the lives of the Biblical nomad Abraham, who is the foundation of the world’s three great religions – Islam, Judaism and, indirectly, Christianity – and his two sons. There is Ishmael, born of an Egyptian slave whose descendants are today’s Arabs. And there is Isaac, son of Abraham’s beloved wife and the Jews’ patriarch.

    Set against the backdrops of Ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt and Israel – of wars and famines, goat-haired tents and kings’ palaces – this is the story of real people whose actions will have an everlasting effect on all future generations and worlds.

    Following faithfully the Holy Bible’s accounting in Genesis, we meet Abraham, who struggles with faith, power, love and cowardice. And his women – Sarah, the wife and Hagar, the slave – whose love for him and hatred for each other never die. Finally, there are the two brothers’ descendants who have been pitted against each other for thousands of years in the age old battle for survival and “the land”.
