In Strange Angels, Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.) Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever— is hunting her?
Now that sixteen-year-old Dru's worst fears have come true and Sergej has kidnapped her best friend Graves, she'll have to go on a suicidal rescue mission to bring him back in one piece. That is, if she can put all of Christophe's training to good use, defeat her mother's traitor, Anna, once and for all, and manage to survive another day...
Marylou Caponi inherited the boxing gym she had practically grown up in from her late father. It isn’t easy being in a male dominated business but her strong will and determination and savvy about the “game” make it work out most of the time. Dan McClain is her head trainer, a former fighter, a handsome leftover from her father’s time. He and Marylou have been on and off lovers over the years. Now past 40 years of age but not appearing nearly so, she questions her own attractiveness to the opposite sex. Both Dan and Marylou deal with challenges, sometimes violent, brought to them in the new world order by their fighters, local drug dealers, pimps, muggers and cops looking for the easiest, quickest way to close unwanted cases, no matter how they do it. Theirs is and entangled love story minus the candy hearts and flowers.
Synchronicity + Serendipity + Divine Intervention + The Universe = Strange Angels. I started writing Strange Angels in 2016, and like with all the books I have ever written, at specific points in the writing process, I knew an event hadn’t happened yet, which was crucial to my finishing this book. With 99% of the book complete, I knew something was missing. So, I listened to my soul, and I gave it some space. Strange Angels is about how the people you meet in your life are for a specific reason. It is about how real-life events often simultaneously occur in your life to either renew your spirit or to answer a problem you have been trying to solve on your own, but haven’t. It is about stillness and plateaus and listening to your soul. I finished writing Strange Angels during the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic, with the whole world shut down. Seeing the world in solitude, social distancing, and understanding who and what is essential in life was the event I needed to experience to finish writing this book. I understand the importance of interactions with people, the need to live life, of seeing the world, of knowing the effect we all have on one another, and that the invisible can be very powerful. I know more than anything else in this world when a life-changing event simplifies your life when it brings it to a standstill; it also gives you a gift; the ability to hear your soul. Your soul is always there for you, just on most days, life's noise drowns it out. When you strip away the noise of the world, one's soul becomes audible. The opportunity to clear the air, to be able to listen to our souls, is a gift. When we hear and listen to our souls, we are aligned. Life in soul alignment is the most valuable time in our lives. It is in soul alignment that the Divine orchestrates our journey. There is nothing more important. It is the Divinely orchestrated journey of our soul. So often, we make plans without ever listening to our soul, and we wonder why those plans peter out at some point. It is only after experiencing a life-changing event, where all we have or ever worked for is washed away in an instant, that we realize we are most rich. For, an extraordinary gift has been given to us. The gift is the clear audible pathway to hear our soul. I believe it is when we are in alignment with our soul that Strange Angels guide us to the next Divine dot in our lives. I have often tried to define what success is in life. I have concluded success for me, is living a life that is in alignment with my soul no matter life's circumstances; to recognize the people who speak to my soul, to partake in actions that make the sound of my soul louder, to trust in the process of life. When I do, I believe I am living successfully. To be able to recognize the Strange Angels your soul sends into your life, you must be aligned with your soul. Sometimes, it takes a life-changing event, like a world pandemic, to become soul-aligned. So be it. Welcome the Strange Angels in your life. Recognize when you are among them. Allow them to guide you to your next Divine dot. For, when the Divine dots of your life eventually all become connected, the portrait and true purpose of your life is revealed. ________ Strange Angels is the 4th book in the "Every Breath is Gold Series" Collection. It is a standalone book, although, I believe you will enjoy it more having read: Book 1 - 6 Minutes Wrestling with Life Book 2 - Again Book 3 - Your Soul Knows Book 4 - Strange Angels

In this first major collection in nearly a decade from a revered American poet, William Pitt Root concerns himself with those extremes—spiritual, physical, or both—at which social and cultural forms disintegrate, leaving the individual as an unshielded witness to transitioning miracles that induce a state of awe that cannot be diminished, diverted, or ignored. In poem after poem, Root compels the reader to discover that these key moments require the heart to open and the mind to still in order to fully accept whatever results, whether it is to suffer inconsolably or to discover new facets of wisdom. With an imagery that is by turns beautiful, tender, provocative, and terrifying, this collection signals the triumphant return of a poet of national renown.
A remarkable collection of ten contemporary plays covering a wide range of topics and themes. It is a rousing resource for those wanting to use drama to stimulate discussion on issues such as marriage, work, poverty, and fair trade. Some of the plays are challenging, some an invitation to laugh, some to take risks, and some an invitation to just have fun - but all of them are full of a great vitality.
