  • The Day The Horses Went to The Fair: Animal Lover and Painter: Rosa Bonheur

    The Day the Horses Went to the Fair: Animal Lover and Painter: Rosa Bonheur

    An author always looks for an angle when writing fiction which Beaupré has done with this novel. He came up with revenants or ghosts for all of his characters as a way of weaving the story together without making it a documentary of Rosa Bonheur’s life and paintings of animals. The author has conjured the likes of a Mozart, a Cervantes and Sir Walter Scott while including other creative artists that influenced Rosa Bonheur. He has also incorporated the descriptions of the Bonheur paintings by herself, the artist, and by her close friend, Anna Klumpke. He has created what he calls a singular novel in that it is not all fiction but an amalgamation of biography, art history and some fiction to make it a creatively cohesive work. The author even intrudes into his work to give it a personal and lively touch.

    Norman Beaupré, Ph.D. was born in Maine and pursued his graduate education at Brown University. He taught over thirty years at the University of New England in Maine where he is presently Professor Emeritus. He has traveled extensively and spent two sabbaticals in Paris. He has written and published twenty-one books in English and in French. In 2008, he was awarded the medal of “Ordre des Arts et Lettres” by the French Ministry of Culture and Communications in Paris for his outstanding contribution to French culture.

  • The Gates of Death: Nostradamus Decoded

    The Gates of Death: Nostradamus Decoded

    In this Book, The Gates of Death: Nostradamus Decoded is many encouraging past, present and future events to be examined. In addition, the book examines all types of events like the Apollo Moon landings. I greatly advise anybody to examine the Moon landing photos anywhere, but the easiest access is on the Internet under “Moon landing hoax.” After viewing these photos, you will come to the same conclusion that I did. The Moon landings just did not happen! However, I hope this book did more than just teach people about the Moon landings. Best regards to all my current and future readers!

In addition, Allen has a bachelor’s degree in Economics with a minor in Geography from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh (Dec. 1999). Allen is also an avid exercise enthusiast with exercises including bodybuilding, walking and playing golf.
    The purpose of this book is to enlighten people on the new economy that is to come. That is consumer spending. Plus, consumer spending simply drives the economy and the middle class are the majority population doing the consumer spending. This is why more money needs to flow in the hands of the middle class through tax breaks, government programs, etc. Also, this will create increased consumer spending revenue for all including the government. Moreover, increased consumer spending through the middle class with a balanced budget will lead to a very prosperous economy.
    The other purpose of this book is to enlighten people on changes that need to be made about investing. Tithing (giving to the poor or the church) is the true way to invest money because it has a guaranteed rate of return. God will repay you for your tithe. Therefore, tithing simply is the way to invest!
    Finally, Allen will locate certain treasures to be found. For instance, the Knights Templar Treasure (located in France) along with Ark of the Covenant (located in Lebanon). But, most importantly, Allen will locate the undiscovered oil well in Israel. This will lead to Israel’s own oil production. Furthermore, Israel mostly relies on foreign oil, however, this will change.

  • The Healing

    The Healing

    “The author captures the raw emotional journeys of the Crockett family and their closest friends, the Willinghams. They all desperately beckon normalcy to return in the wake of tragedy, the death of Navy SEAL, Travis Crockett. The author has a keen ability of helping the readers feel as if they are physically a part of the story. Written in such a clever, rhythmic cadence, most readers will not be able to put this book down until the last page has been read.”

    - Clarissa Douthit, The US Review of Books

    RECOMMENDED by the US Review

    The Healing follows the events of a weekend as Navy Chaplain, Charles Willingham and his wife Teresa renew their old friendship with the Crockett family. The Chaplain had the reluctant task a year earlier of telling the family about the tragic death of their oldest son Travis while he was on a mission in Afghanistan with his Navy SEAL platoon. The unexpected appearance of Clay Lucas, the platoon leader of the SEAL team that Travis was a part of, leads to many memories of everyone’s relationship with Travis and each other and how the family is coping with their loss.

  • The House on Shadow Lane: A Love Story

    The House on Shadow Lane: A Love Story

    Peopled with remarkable and varied characters, the plot of The House on Shadow Lane required a skillful hand to keep events moving at its almost frantic pace while remaining believable. As Robert Heylmun weaves the lives of his characters into the nap of his plot, their connections produce the complicated, even twisted, events that make the novel captivating. How, the reader wonders, will the romance developing between Hal and Simon survive the challenges they face? How will Carl, who is “in love with two people of different genders,” decide? While readers have likely never known such characters or situations, the author’s ingenious interplay brings them into vivid reality. As a result, readers will likely share on finishing this page turner, a “joyful sense of loss” that paradoxically occurs whenever I finish a novel I have much enjoyed. Good stories like this leave the reader to ponder what will happen next to those characters that he has come to know so well. The author’s story telling expertise establishes him as a writer whom readers of gay fiction will want to read again … and again.
