COMPELLING HISTORICAL FICTION-
In the first of what will be a two-volume set, The Freedom Star immerses readers in the lives, dreams, and sufferings of two families, one owned by the other, at the outset of America’s Civil War. Isaac yearns for the freedom that Henry, his boyhood friend and owner’s son, takes for granted. Although they share similar dreams, Isaac’s days are filled with hardships, while Henry enjoys life as a West Point cadet, oblivious to his friend’s suffering. When war comes, Henry signs on to fight for the Confederacy. Soon after, his father takes ill and his older brother seizes control of the family farm. Without warning, the slaves find themselves under the whip, Isaac’s father is sold south, and the atmosphere in the slave quarters turns as oppressive as the August sun on a dusty tobacco field.
The Freedom Star unfolds against the backdrop of the Civil War, bringing added tension to this gripping family drama. One reader said, “… as captivating as accounts of battles and leaders might be, it is easy to lose sight of the intensely personal issues of this great conflict. Freedom Star brings the reader up close to two characters who frame the issues of the Civil War in a way that no battle portrayals can.”
If you enjoy strong, character-driven fiction rich in historical detail, then this powerful and evocative family saga might be the book for you!
WHAT ARE READERS SAYING?
“Riveting and real – Just two words to describe this wonderful book.”
“… one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time, and I read a lot of books.”
“The Freedom Star. . . tells a fascinating story of Isaac’s quest for liberty, but it also gives a surprisingly good look at how the issue of slavery was perceived by different people at the time of the Civil War and of how it affected relationships.”
“A Wonderful Story – Transporting me back in time, I was pulled into the lives of the slaves and the slave owners. Mr. Andrews created characters that soon either won my heart or made my blood boil.”
“Fantastic – …impossible to put down, which resulted in me staying up way too late for too many nights. It has been quite sometime since I have become this involved in a book. A MUST read!”
“Fascinating Novel – The author did a wonderful job creating believable, three-dimensional characters and portraying realistic scenarios and interactions between them.”
“Hard to put it down – I enjoy historical books. I am happy to say that it was a book I had a hard time putting down. I recommend it.”
“Great story with characters that will be hard to forget -A very well-written story that will stay with you well after the last pages are read.”
“Strongly recommended! – The characters are so real I miss them now that I have finished reading the book.”
“…an amazing story told through so many perspectives. It was so visceral at times that I had to stop and catch my breath and even shed a few tears.”
“Jeff Andrews paints a vivid picture of the civil war slave life. His character development is superb. By the end of the story, you feel like you know each of the characters intimately. It’s a must read reminder of what this Country went through and why we still struggle today with many decisions we face a Nation.”
The sequel to The Freedom Star will be available early in 2014.

Relatively Famous delivers Hollywood with heart. Meet Dani McKinley: A typical teen whose world is rocked when she finds out that her father is a famous Hollywood action star. Now meet Mark Ocean: A self-serving actor with a floundering career who sees that a daughter is just what he needs to reinvent himself as a family man and get back on track. When the two decide to spend the summer together, they must not only wrangle their own love lives, but try to figure out who they really are to themselves and to each other.
Now armed with credit cards, club memberships, and a new wardrobe, Dani learns that what Mark has in wealth, he sorely lacks in parenting skills. Trying to show Mark that parenting is about more than loading her up with Prada bags and taking her to movie premieres is challenging enough, but she’s also got her hands full with her new friends. Oh, and the boys… Dani meets Jason, a gorgeous young personal trainer who is easy on the eyes and wildly flirtatious. But is this smug hottie the one for her? Or will she ignore her friends eye-rolling and go for the goofy but sweet surfer?
While juggling her own complicated love life, Dani tries to set her father up with someone less likely to appear on a VH1 reality show, and someone more… well, normal. And age-appropriate. And dressed in anything but a thong bikini. But whether Mark is able to heal old wounds and move forward with anything more than a meaningless fling remains to be seen.
Can Dani fit in with this new, fast-moving California crowd without losing herself? With the world at her fingertips and hot boys now after her, staying grounded gets tough. And can Mark drop his egocentric approach to life and learn to appreciate how truly wonderful his daughter is? As driven as he is to get that A-list acting role, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to get there, even if it means using his daughter. Or is he…? Mark and Dani’s relationship hits a few highs, but the question becomes whether the lows are too much.

Stray is a gritty, intense, yet surprisingly sweet novel that masterfully weaves together a substance abuse therapist, the addicts he treats, and the stray pets at the next door animal shelter. Based on a true setting near Detroit, the novel has been met with high praise and wonderful reviews.
After an alcohol-induced seizure during his father’s funeral, Thomas Cleaves remains sober and becomes a therapist to help others just like him recover from their addiction. Tom gets married, his wife becomes pregnant, and he dreams of becoming the father his own father never was. But when his wife miscarries on the same day one of his heroin- addicted client dies of an overdose, Tom becomes convinced that the addicts he treats have infected her womb.
Lost and bitter after the miscarriage, Tom is in desperate need of a client who can give him some hope.
James White is one such client — a newly orphaned alcoholic dead bent on drinking again until he gets discharged and finds himself rescuing lost strays at the next door animal shelter. It is here that he meets the mystical nurse Rachel who cleans cages, rescues strays, but then has the unfortunate duty of putting some to sleep with a lethal injection. Rescuing the throw-away pets of the city becomes his escape, and both his and Tom’s salvation.
Stray will take you through the dog fighting dens and crack houses of Detroit. Experience the minds and hearts of addicts and those who would help them through a world where stray dogs and heroin addicts are killed by needles every day. Stray illustrates the universal longing in all of us as we wander through the aid stations of society looking for a place that feels like home.
