The Munich Girl (Bargain Read)

Anna Dahlberg grew up eating dinner under her father’s war-trophy portrait of Eva Braun.
Fifty years after the war, she discovers what he never did—that her mother and Hitler’s mistress were friends.

The secret surfaces with a mysterious monogrammed handkerchief, and a man, Hannes Ritter, whose Third Reich family history is entwined with Anna’s.

Plunged into the world of the “ordinary” Munich girl who was her mother’s confidante—and a tyrant’s lover—Anna finds her every belief about right and wrong challenged. With Hannes’s help, she retraces the path of two women who met as teenagers, shared a friendship that spanned the years that Eva Braun was Hitler’s mistress, yet never knew that the men they loved had opposing ambitions.

Eva’s story reveals that she never joined the Nazi party, had Jewish friends, and was credited at the Nuremberg Trials with saving 35,000 Allied lives. As Anna’s journey leads back through the treacherous years in wartime Germany, it uncovers long-buried secrets and unknown reaches of her heart to reveal the enduring power of love in the legacies that always outlast war.

Fly, die!

A seagull in an English seaside town acquires a taste for hunting and killing cats. Embarking on a killing spree, the bird inadvertently adds to an adolescent boy’s woes while causing paranoia in local cats. As the cat population diminishes, a brilliant Abyssinian called Joseph chances upon the truth and sets out to restore natural law where cats are the predators, and birds are their victims. Although media and public pressure to catch the cat killer builds, a recession and the uncertainty of Brexit means the underfunded civil service isn’t too interested in solving cat deaths. Eventually, after much public pressure, Constables Franklin and Wilkin are put on the case. Stumbling upon evidence via social media, they find their killer. Unfortunately, their deductive reasoning is flawed, resulting in an innocent teenager taking the fall, adding to his already significant problems. Mrs Crick is only too aware of nature’s cruelty, and although a lover of wildlife, especially the sparrows that play in her garden, nature shocks and scares her sometimes. Having already overcome many traumas in her long life, she suffers more as the seagull and his family reside on her roof. Nature is cruel, but the bloated British civil service is more cruel. And corrupt and stupid, too. Most species try to protect their families, but life is hard, and DNA adapts slowly to cope with environmental changes. While most evolve for the better, humanity seems to get worse and worse. A dark social satire (depending on your point of view), telling a tale about nature, family and politics.

Meet Steven Ryan

At the time of writing, Steve was a middle-aged man with a lacklustre career history. With few strings to his bow, he tried breaking from mundanity by writing a book for the challenge and in the misguided hope of becoming a millionaire. Unconcerned by his glaring lack of ability, he strove to submerge strangers in the absurdity of his imagination. Drawing inspiration from his love of nature, its beauty, simplicity and cruelty. Fly, die! was inspired by Steve’s life and the starkness of life’s unfairness. Although a believer in the maxim, “If you don’t laugh, you will cry,” life elicits many tears, his only hope being that his story provides a little food for thought along with the tears.

Bridget had never considered herself special, odd definitely. But nothing worth looking at twice. And she had never cared to be looked at twice either.

Until Declan, that is.

Then one night Bridget is approached by a strange (and large) dog. Rescued by Declan, he reveals that Bridget may be special after all, a goddess even. And the dog has been sent to protect her.

Does she have the strength to defeat a powerful witch and her three sons? Why is Declan involved in magic and mystery anyway? And can she save Ruad, her handsome mentor and the God of Knowledge into this new world? As they dig deeper, they uncover that they all have more in common than just their troubled pasts.

The Ulster Cycles are a part of Irish mythology, and this novel depicts characters from the old stories in a new and creative light. While much is taken from these oral stories, this novel is a historical romance loosely based on them.

With magic, mystery, and romance involved this is a novel about discovering your hidden potential and breaking past limiting beliefs.

SHARP EDGES, Part I: To Have and To Hold

Falling in love is the three worded calamity they dare not pronounce. It can’t exist between them, other than a push and pull polarity一 or so they tell themselves. ( … ) A mafia heir. An ordinary young woman. A family owning the fashion scene of Paris to the public as a cover up. Fame. Secrets. Bitterness. Unpredictability. In a world of broken, there are two types of people: Remy Lanoir is the broken that others get cut on his jagged shards, and Ela Beaumont is the broken that puts herself back together every time. They say damaged people are dangerous…because they know how to make the best of what they get. Because they know what is like to live on. SHARP EDGES is a love story about complicated people who are viewed as simple, about how the world perceives them based on what they want it to know, not what really is; an outline crafted to hide and resist. A man and a young woman from different backgrounds who get involved with each other and develop a strong, passionate interest amidst the multitude of events they go through in their life.

Juxtapositions from the Good Vibe Lounge – Volume One: The Paradise We Create

JUXTAPOSITION: The act or an instance of placing two or more things side by side, often to compare or contrast or… to create an interesting effect.

Set in Central New Jersey, the Good Vibe Trilogy is a coming-of-age story following the lives of two young people raised in diverse yet dysfunctional environments during the late 1970s. When their lives connect, it impacts the destinies of their friends and family over a forty-year span.

Volume One, The Paradise We Create, introduces Andrew ‘Drew’ Reubens. As a teen, he is a girl-crazy, self-involved kid at the center of a clique of performing arts geeks. One of the many females in his sphere is unfiltered and misunderstood Alyona ‘Yoyo’ Zalenkov, being raised in a rural cult environment with warped family values.

The result of their unlikely relationship is represented in the modern-day events of the story, as Andrew hosts a celebration at his Central Jersey establishment, The Good Vibe Lounge. When the younger generation of his family expresses a desire to understand more about their back story, Andrew pivots, between modern times and 1977, his climactic senior year of High School to weave the story of Drew and Yoyo… and a collection of characterful events and relationships along the way.

With the help of some of his oldest friends, Andrew takes a tour of the often comedic, sometimes tragic.. but all-so-typical journey of adolescents faced with the transition to life as adults in the real world.

The Good Vibe saga is a forty-year history of characters who navigate thru the wonders, challenges, and destiny of human interplay. Along the way, they take on these dynamics, with juxtaposed tales of adolescent frivolity, dysfunctional family, enduring friendship, the depth of romance and sensuous love, criminal behavior, deception, success, failure, the thrill of knowledge, personal progression, and… a good dose of recovering from regrets.

And ultimately seeking to balance ‘what might have been’ with everything happening at the place where reality meets up with all of it… for a reason.
