Cheyenne Curtis longs for a good man to marry and raise a family with—something she never had growing up. Private Investigator Judson Gray seems perfect for her, but disturbing childhood experiences resurface and stop their relationship dead in its tracks.
Almost from their first date, Judson fell head over heels in love with Cheyenne, the confident, sassy redhead who never minces words and tells it like it is. Things are going great until she suddenly turns a one-eighty and asks him for space to get her head together.
Can Cheyenne overcome deeply scarring childhood memories and find happiness with Judson, or will she put his love on hold and continue to search for an elusive assurance she can’t even define?
Meet Linda Robinson
Linda Robinson was married to the love of her life as a teenager, traveled extensively with him throughout his military career, and raised two sons. She currently lives with her husband on twelve acres in Alabama—with fishponds, gardens, birds, and plenty of wildlife. She loves all things nature, (even the deer, except when they’re eating her flowers), and spends most of her time reading, writing, and flower gardening. Reading has always been a passion, though she has less time now that she writes. Skeptical Heart is her twelfth published book. Though her first two careers revolved around computer science and accounting, Linda states, “My career in writing evolved late in life, but it’s now a passion. To catch up, I have a lot of writing to do, so I plan to simply write out the rest of my life!”
Six lifelong friends endure a range of trials and tribulations upon entering their sophomore year of high school. Terminal illness, the sinking ship that was once a booming generational family business, and a brush with maniacal killers are only a few examples of such adversity that these young men are faced with. They rely upon one another to conquer each obstacle placed before them; grievances that no adolescent boy should be tasked with. But can their bond and their trust in one another be sufficient to emerge from their respective plights unscathed? And if so, at what cost to their psychological well-being?
Meet NATHAN GARCIA
I began laying the groundwork for what would become “Castalia Boys” on January 1st, 2022. This was my first attempt at writing in a “professional” capacity at the age of twenty-seven, nonetheless. I have two children, with one due in June of ’23. These bundles of joy have inspired as well as annoyed me since the conception of the book. I wouldn’t have it any other way. My fiancée has been a beacon of encouragement and has served as my primary editor throughout this entire process. I am eternally grateful to her. Tomorrow, as well as many tomorrows after, I will be expected to report to my “real” job and reclaim my title as “Electrical Maintenance Technician.” It’s a fine career path; it’s just not as fun as writing. Now, I’ll have to rip out this page of my boss’s copy of the book, should he choose to buy one. Seriously though, getting back into the swing of writing on a consistent basis has been one of the greatest things I could have done for myself. And I’m far from finished.

Meet Tom Sarsons
Real, meaningful recovery, healing and transformation is possible. I discovered these Pathways of Emotional Healing following a series of stressful challenges, during a deep exploration of Self. A journey into darkness is also a journey into the light.
“Lifetimes & Life’s Lines” is a delightfully wordy, profoundly bodacious YAWP about all things living. Within its pages, you will venture “off a country road into dense deliverance, away from all things carnal, where mildewed wood chip paths meander through firefly ambiance and unseen moth kisses to a shadow eating burn pit with still moods.” There’s much to embrace here about awesome, average people, places, and the great out-of-doors. At the same time, this work reminds us that there are many challenges to which we can agree to unite, then work together in a common bond towards changing, such as: mental and physical abuse, prejudice, conflict, and mental illness. So, let’s you and me turn that first page, together, and many thanks in advance for the privilege.
“Heaton writes in a way that reveals captivating pictures. His tongue-in-cheek use of meter and metaphor compels us to come along, and partake in the celebratory sense of having arrived home one hopes they will inherit at the end of this earthy, glorious adventure we call “Life’s Journey.”

Have you lost sight of who you are as an individual?
If you find yourself questioning the healthiness of your relationships and struggle to stand up for what you want, you’re not alone.
Codependent behaviors are some of the most difficult relationship patterns to identify, yet it’s rarely discussed and often considered another form of “clinginess.”
This definition ignores the feelings of guilt and shame that arise from the best of intentions — it does nothing to recognize that even the best intentions can hurt.
As you put yourself on the line for the people you love, it can be difficult to tell when the boundaries between you and them have blurred to the point of toxicity.
After all, you’re motivated by wanting the best for others, even if it means you have to put aside your own values and opinions to do so.
However, when you come to rely on outside factors for validation and a sense of identity, these “do good” habits can do more harm than good.
You may suddenly feel obligated to stay in a constricting relationship that turns you into a victim and limits your capacity for intimacy. It can feel as though you have no one to turn to because everybody relies on you.
That doesn’t mean your life has to stay that way.
Codependency may be running your life, but you are the one in the driver’s seat. In fact, you’ve already taken the first step by realizing you need to change the path you’re on.
Don Barlow knows firsthand the transformational effects of recovering from codependency and has compiled the knowledge he gained over the years so others can experience the same freedom.
In The Codependency Recovery Blueprint, here is just a fraction of what you will discover:
What codependency is and isn’t, as well as its historical background
Exercises and practices to help break the pattern of enabling otherswhile learning to assert yourself
How childhood experiences contribute to dysfunctional relationships and determine the behaviors that follow you into adulthood
The 5 patterns of codependent behavior, and how identifying them will help you understand the signs and symptoms manifesting in your life
Techniques and advice on getting over your need for control, learning to accept people for who they are
Identifying the 3 stages of codependency progression: how to begin the recovery process by reclaiming your sense of identity and self-worth
Essential self-care practices that promote self-respect and compassion, even in difficult situations
And much more.
It isn’t selfish to put yourself first — it’s time to prioritize your own life and happiness and stop ignoring your personal needs.
Listen to your instincts and take this first step on your journey to finding independence and fulfilment.
