Pianist in a Bordello
What would happen if a politician decided to tell the truth—the whole truth?
Richard Youngblood, aspiring Congressman, is about to find out. He’s running on a platform of honesty and transparency—and against the advice of his friends and advisers he’s decided to start with himself. His autobiography will lay his entire life bare before voters just days before the election.
And what a life he’s had. Born in a commune and named Richard Milhous Nixon Youngblood as an angry shot at his absent father, Richard grows up in the spotlight, the son of an enigmatic fugitive and the grandson of a Republican senator. He’s kidnapped and rescued, kicked out of college for a prank involving turkeys, arrested in Hawaii while trying to deliver secrets to the CIA…Dick Nixon Youngblood’s ready to tell all.
He’ll even tell his readers about the Amandas—three women who share a name but not much else, and who each have helped shape and define the man he’s become.
Are voters really ready for the whole truth?
Pianist in a Bordello is a hilarious political romp through the last four decades of American history, from a narrator who is full of surprises.
What do a bubbly six year old, a Christian Scientist and a farmhouse boarder have in common? They were all brutally murdered by a person that society least expected.
In Heinous: Forgotten Murders From the 1910s, you’ll travel back to a violent decade – a time when “idiots and morons” were police departments’ first suspects, when journalists had the opportunity to conduct interrogations and when forensics was in its infancy. It also was a decade when crime of all varieties was surging, and experts blamed everything from immigration to lax parenting.
If you’re fascinated by true crime history, you’ll enjoy these 17 tales of murder and mysterious deaths. The people you’ll meet include Hans Schmidt, a priest who believed his crime was divinely inspired; Russell Pethrick, a 22-year-old grocery delivery boy who was caught based on a new technology – fingerprint analysis; Thomas Fitzgerald, a pedophile who enjoyed showing little girls “pretty” pictures of dead people; and Nathan Swartz, a murder suspect whose family experienced intense shame after he went on the lam.
Heinous: Forgotten Murders From the 1910s also includes a bonus case: What Happened to Dorothy Arnold? The socialite’s baffling disappearance made headlines for decades and remains unsolved to this day.
These stories made headlines more than a century ago and provide insight into how the media covered sensational crimes.Buy on Amazon
Cassidy is bored. Very bored. None of Mommy’s and Daddy’s ideas sound fun, certainly not taking a walk in an elaborate park full of art and colorful flowers.
When no one else is looking, though, Cassidy spies a fluttering fairy peeking out from an evergreen hedge. Can Dayana help Cassidy see all the beauty and excitement around her?
This fairy tale is set in the beautiful Allerton Park & Retreat Center in Central Illinois. It will spark the imaginations of children and young readers age 4-8.
“I am an elementary reading teacher in Albany, WI and have three grandchildren in (or almost in) this age range. My granddaughter would adore this book. She has a vivid imagination, so this book would certainly spark her interest. I love the dialogue between Dayana and Cassidy. It would make for a great writing lesson on the skill. I also enjoyed all of the adjectives that describe actions, feelings, and objects in this story. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and contribute greatly to the story. This book is one that I would genuinely enjoy sharing with the students at my school. It is well written – and just an enjoyable story.” ~ Melissa
“It was absolutely enchanting. The illustrations are lovely and have just enough detail to drawn a young reader in, but not overwhelm them.” ~ SusanBuy on Amazon
A must read book to understand current events.
Arthur White takes us through the mechanisms of propaganda and indoctrination from the past and used in today’s social media. Sometimes reality is far more terrifying than fiction.

Arthur White guides us through the tools used in everyday life to deceive mankind, divide and keep people in an invisible prison.
The magic trick is not stripping away free will from society. The real magic trick is doing it in a way that people willingly surrender free will and they do it with a big smile.Buy on Amazon
