The 2 Richards

Christmas Eve a time of wonder. The tangerine and ginger air of New York, the bright lights of a busy city, and a belief that something wonderful was going to happen to you for certain. That’s the way it was for Amy. The beautiful, successful, 32-year-old Amy had achieved a lot, but she was still looking for the most important thing – her man. In the space of six months her life has gone through a one-hundred-and eighty-degree transformation: a move from New York to Los Angeles, a new environment, and a new woman – Amy. Everybody comes into our lives for a reason. Do you believe that? Amy believes it, and what happens to her defies any logic. The irony in her life: is the two Richards. Completely different, and yet similar at the same time. And when happiness is so close, everything could crumble in a moment. The novel follows the life of this strong woman over the course of six months, who was able to open a business following her divorce, and become a different woman, a better person than she was the day before. Amy – is a reflection of any woman. You will delve deeply into her life and discover, to your surprise, how much she has in common with everyone. When you read this novel, you won’t notice that you will go through a transformation yourself, discovering answers to questions such as: “What’s the purpose of life?” “How do I accept myself, fall in love, and be in harmony with my own body, and my own thoughts?” “How do I learn to forgive, and how do I learn to let go of people in my life?” “How do I make a cardinal change in my life?” “How do I achieve inner harmony?” Above the winter blues. Above everything that has prevented us from just being really happy at the rustle of dappled wings from the butterflies we feel, and the beauty of our cozy silence. A Christmas novel “The 2 Richards”

Meet Alina Ross

Christmas Eve a time of wonder. The tangerine and ginger air of New York, the bright lights of a busy city, and a belief that something wonderful was going to happen to you for certain. That’s the way it was for Amy.

Natalie

1 body. 2 killers. 14 witnesses. No one knows what happened. Early in the 1940s, while the New York skyline was darkened by World War II dimouts, the enigmatic Natalie entwines herself in the lives of Raymond Grant, famed Wall Street playboy, and Gordon Flynn, seasoned private eye. From the moment Grant lays eyes on Natalie in the Copacabana, he refuses to be without her. And Flynn doesn’t stand a chance against the damsel in distress, sauntering into his office and asking him to peer behind the curtain of one of New York’s brightest shining stars on her behalf. What then leads to Natalie’s life culminating in a standoff with not one, but both of these men in front of fourteen horrified onlookers? Alluring, mysterious, and completely unrelenting, Natalie is at once a noir crime thriller, a modern heist, and an engrossing tale asking why rather than the who. Roberts enthralls us with a con, a cop, a gumshoe, and an investor, each discovering in their own way that Natalie is a force to be reckoned with.

Meet Josh Roberts

Josh is a Columbus, Ohio native. He worked in the web development industry for over a decade and has a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering. When he’s not writing, he’s hanging out with his family, reading, watching movies, or doing a project of some sort on the computer. Aside from that, he’s played electric bass for over fifteen years, written a couple of film scripts (one terrible, one that may not be), and has never been to Disney World.

My Love Affair with Manhattan (Vignettes of a Life in the City)

The very concept of New York City conjures up a wealth of emotions in many people. For writer Joanie Strulowitz, it has always been a place of magic: an enticing playground, a cascade of art, a wonderland of fascinating characters, a youth serum to keep her feeling forever young.

Believing herself to be a New Yorker who just happened to be born in Iowa, Strulowitz felt the tantalizing call of Manhattan from the time she was four, and eventually made her home there. In this love song to the City, she pays adoring tribute to the essence of Manhattan from its intense pace and the pounding excitement in the air to the funky charm and even the glittering pavement that provides a stage on which it all unfolds.

The City is her laboratory, her art studio, and the extraordinary inspiration for this collection of captivating vignettes. In each short but sublime piece, Strulowitz evokes the luminous ambiance that has lured artists and adventure seekers to the island metropolis for generations: enthralling chance encounters, the slightly terrifying exhilaration of first subway rides, the soothing clink of silverware in a favorite sidewalk cafe, the urge to break into song when discovering a perfect little boutique.

Anyone who has lived in New York City, played tourist there, or just dreamed of paying a visit will find something to love in this transcendent appreciation of the jewel-encrusted celebration of life and art that is Manhattan.


Meet Joanie Strulowitz

ALTHOUGH JOANIE STRULOWITZ is seasoned in numerous aspects of the arts and business, writing has always been her baby. While raising her two daughters in Iowa, she joined the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Years later, after finding her first apartment in Los Angeles, she discovered that–magnetically–the SCBWI offices were two blocks from her front door.
Originally from Iowa and later Chicago, Strulowitz moved to New York because, as she explains in My Love Affair with Manhattan (Vignettes of a Life in the City), “My soul has always lived there, and my body needs to catch up.”
With a memory that is largely emotive, she recalls almost every square inch of how she felt growing up. As an observer who always thought something was wrong with her because she didn’t fit in, she discovered that writing books, and being involved with all of the arts, help to make sense of life.
Now she seeks to be the voice she searched for, so the lessons she learned can help others to find the gifts in their differences–and to believe in themselves and their dreams.
Today you can find her (and her black turtleneck) in Los Angeles, writing a chapter on her grocery bag while walking home, or completing her YA fantasy novel during Pilates sessions.

I’ve sworn off long-term relationships. But this isn’t a relationship: it’s a business deal.
All we have to do is live together for a few months.

Killian

But now, he’s offering me my dream come true – if I’ll pose as his fiancee for the hospital board.

But he’s also incredibly hot.

And I’m not going back, no matter what he says.

We had one great night and I’ve never felt like that before.
But she can be so…infuriating.
Nothing Anna says will change my mind,

?
