In 1946, a tragic event changes eight-year-old

Hannah Jonesen’s life forever: her mother

dies, leaving the girl and her papa, JOHAN, to

run the family farm alone. Stern but loving,

Johan teaches Hannah about the importance

of work. Lieula, Hannah’s feisty maternal

grandmother, questions whether Johan is

responsible enough to raise his daughter by

himself; Hannah wishes they wouldn’t argue,

but she loves her grandma’s company. And

the townspeople of Munich, North Dakota,

are like an extended family, watching over the

motherless girl.

Meet Jennifer Lewis and Danny Wilcox, two-star

crossed lovers, teens who share a common

bond. They’re both undead, lonely, scared, and

searching for answers. They know there are

others like themselves; undead, but alive in

both spirit and mind. Leaving the relative safety

of their hometown, they set out in a quest for

their own kind.

Of Life and Magic is a debut poetry collection

about love, life, peace, loss and hope. It is

designed to bring poetry into every home with

its lyrical interplay of rhyme, rhythm and

fascinating stories. Come on a poetic journey

through the magic of everyday life, from failure

to success, regrets to redemption, and fear to

courage. Of Life and Magic embraces everyday

reality with insightful verse that will echo in your

mind. With poems that you will reread both

alone and aloud to family and friends, Of Life

and Magic will be an enduring literary

companion.

When 15 month old Trinket turns up missing

from their apartment building, Loosee Jeen is

compelled to become involved with the ex-

social worker neighbor who returns him to her.

She initially suspects the neighbor’s help will

come with too many judgments attached to it,

and why not? She is single, poor, and alone, and

her child was just found in someone else’s yard.

In She Thought the Door Was Locked, high

school dropout and single mother Loosee Jeen

struggles to learn how to balance her personal

longings for intimacy with her determination to

provide a good life for her toddler son, Trinket.

She makes some poor decisions along the way;

one in particular has almost fatal consequences

for her, her son and her family.

It has been 40 years since America closed its

borders and separated from the world following

the Vietnam War. Maxwell and Karina have

known this all their lives, but that didn’t mean

anything to them. After all, they lived in a small

town separated from the rest of the country by

larger than life trees and wildlife, what

difference would it make? That all changes

when they return home to find their house

ransacked and their mother missing.

Fragments of yesterdays past whisper through

the hollow corridors of this broken world as we

empty shells linger, struggling to capture a past

now gone, but those warm memories are gone,

leaving us conscience-ridden from our own

mistakes that have torn us in two. And we are

left to turmoil with the cruel hands of circuitry

stealing away what makes us human, but are we

now nothing but machine? Will the ghosts of

those we loved and lost remind us of the one

buried beneath the mirror? Can we heal, or will

we fracture and shatter like fragments of

yesterdays past?
