The Wolves of Paris

It’s the winter of 1450 and Paris is in a panic. A pack of ravenous wolves is loose in the city, feasting on human flesh. Lorenzo Boccaccio is summoned by a Dominican inquisitor who claims that Lorenzo’s business agent is tied to the sorcery behind the wolf attacks. He demands that Lorenzo and his brother Marco help him root out the evil.

Rivals in business and love, the brothers make for a reluctant partnership. Even so, they are confident the wolves are a natural phenomenon, not men or demons traveling in wolf form.

But events soon prove that the monks and peasants are right. These are no ordinary wolves. And if they are not defeated, the city’s filthy alleys will be awash in blood.

Shaken Not Stirred... A Chemo Cocktail

Shaken Not Stirred… A Chemo Cocktail is the cancer chapter in my story. It’s a series of postcards from the other side of breast cancer and chemo. Been there, done that, had to buy a new T-shirt. When the glass is half full, being optimistic is pretty much a 50/50 chance. But when I was staring at two empty cups in the mirror? Yikes! If that’s not life handing out “lemons” then I don’t know what is. And I know, everybody always says to “make lemonade” when you get a twist of your fate like that… but I guess I’m more of a lemontini kind of girl. Ha! The lemonade never sees the vodka coming. Now that’s a twist I can dance. Shaken Not Stirred… A Chemo Cocktail is one part hope, a dash of bitter, a splash of sweet, with a twist of humor, and served on the rocks. It’s a comedy about my tragedy. Yeah, I know cancer isn’t funny. It sucks. But, I believe laughter heals. So hold still while I tickle your funny bone.

The Map That Changed the World

In 1793, a canal digger named William Smith made a startling discovery. He found that by tracing the placement of fossils, which he uncovered in his excavations, one could follow layers of rocks as they dipped and rose and fell—clear across England and, indeed, clear across the world—making it possible, for the first time ever, to draw a chart of the hidden underside of the earth. Smith spent twenty-two years piecing together the fragments of this unseen universe to create an epochal and remarkably beautiful hand-painted map. But instead of receiving accolades and honors, he ended up in debtors’ prison, the victim of plagiarism, and virtually homeless for ten years more.

The Map That Changed the World is a very human tale of endurance and achievement, of one man’s dedication in the face of ruin. With a keen eye and thoughtful detail, Simon Winchester unfolds the poignant sacrifice behind this world-changing discovery.

There are many heroes of the civil rights movement—men and women we can look to for inspiration. Each has a unique story, a path that led to a role as leader or activist. Death of Innocence is the heartbreaking and ultimately inspiring story of one such hero: Mamie Till-Mobley, the mother of Emmett Till—an innocent fourteen-year-old African-American boy who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and who paid for it with his life.

Mamie Carthan was an ordinary African-American woman growing up in 1930s Chicago, living under the strong, steady influence of her mother’s care. She fell in love with and married Louis Till, and while the marriage didn’t last, they did have a beautiful baby boy, Emmett.

In August 1955, Emmett was visiting family in Mississippi when he was kidnapped from his bed in the middle of the night by two white men and brutally murdered. His crime: allegedly whistling at a white woman in a convenience store.

Civil War. No one could flee from the nightmare of battle and the countless lives it devoured. Everyone had sacrificed—suffered profound misery and unimaginable loss. Vivianna Bartholomew was no exception. The war had torn her from her home, orphaned her. The merciless war seemed to take everything—even the man she loved.

Still, Vivianna yet knew gratitude, for a kind friend had taken her in upon the death of her parents. Thus, she was cared for—even loved. Yet as General Lee surrendered, signaling the war’s imminent end, as Vivianna remained with the remnants of the Turner family, her soul clung to the letters written by her lost soldier—to his memory written in her heart. Could a woman ever heal from the loss of such a love? Could a woman’s heart forget that it may find another?

Vivianna Bartholomew thought not. Still, it is often in the world that miracles occur—that love endures even after hope has been abandoned.

Call Me Cockroach: Based on a True Story

Our prisons and mental hospitals are filled with tragic stories like Tuesday Storm’s. Her early childhood was riddled with torturous “games” and violent physical attacks. She was isolated from the rest of her family, locked in an attic with nothing but a bare bed and a bucket for a toilet, and fed just enough to be kept alive. The experts say it’s next to impossible to find the soul’s light in a dark past like Tuesday’s. They say she’ll never trust again after being betrayed by the people she loved most, or silence the voices inside her head telling her she’s worthless and unloved. She’s doomed to suffer a lifetime of depression and self-destructive behavior, and destined to be drawn to people who will again abuse her. That’s what the experts say. And the thing about experts is—they’re usually right. “Call Me Cockroach” is a chilling illustration of the unfortunate truth that no one comes away from severe childhood trauma unscathed.

For those of you who’ve read Byrne’s debut book, the Kindle eBook bestseller, “Call Me Tuesday,” this memoir is the rest of the story. To everyone else, it’s a glimpse into the tormented mind and troubled heart of a woman struggling to overcome the debilitating aftermath of a horrific childhood.
