I t is the fear of separation from everything she loves that brings Allison Bannister to the beach. She stops on the steps that lead down to the ocean. She is alone. The sun is setting behind her; the tide is rushing in, and dark water is licking at the bottom step. Off to the north, the lights of Charleston shine into the evening sky. To the south, a star twinkles as darkness descends on the barrier islands. Light and dark; good and evil. Reconciliation is not in the cards.
Allison shivers. How easy it would be to walk out into the ocean. Her winter clothes would take on water and weigh her down. When she went under, her body would turn cold, her lungs would fill with water, and all of her troubles would end.
It all started with an invitation to Michael’s high school reunion.
“Reunions are fun!” Allison tells her husband, Michael, when the invitation to his thirtieth reunion arrives in the mail. “You see old friends, talk about old times . . .”
“Talk to a bunch of fat, gray-haired people who I haven’t seen in thirty years . . . A blast.” Michael shakes his head, “Besides,” he adds, “strange things happen at reunions.”
In spite of his reluctance, Allison surprises him with tickets.
At the reunion, Michael does see his old friends. They do talk about old times. They watch a video, “Turn Back the Clock” – high school, 1979. As she meets his friends, listens to their stories, and watches the video, Allison discovers a Michael she does not know, a boy who was so very different from the “staid, serious attorney” to whom she is married.
Michael does have a blast. “Wouldn’t it be wonderful,” he asks later in the evening, “if you could crawl through a worm hole and find yourself in high school, again?”
Over the next few weeks, Allison attempts to cope with the strange things that happen as Michael “crawls though the worm hole,” and morphs back into the person he was thirty years earlier. She rolls her eyes when he plays practical jokes. She shakes her head when he trains to run a marathon. Where is the man I married?
Michael’s desire to return to his youth sets in motion events which disrupt their lives and tear the couple apart. Michael spends long hours in his new art studio, alone. Allison feels rejected and begins to build a life of her own, a life that does not require Michael. Before long, Michael and Allison, a couple who seldom spent time apart, rarely spend time together. They both feel neglected, and each blames the other. A long separation, the unexpected appearance of Michael’s college girl friend, an unplanned rendezvous, and a charge of adultery threaten to end their marriage forever – and Allison finds herself alone on the beach.
The Reunion is a tale about how seemingly insignificant events can lead to a marriage on the brink, about the danger of staying silent when problems arise, and, above all, about the journey a couple in love takes as they attempt to obtain forgiveness, to avoid divorce, and to find themselves again.
Includes discussion questions for reading groups.

Praise and reviews for The Key of Kilenya:
“The Key of Kilenya is full of adventure and wonderful, mythical-type creatures–totally unique. This book is like Fablehaven meets Harry Potter with a sprinkling of Lord of the Rings. A good, fun, clean read for the whole family.” – Jennifer Hurst
“As a mother, it’s refreshing to know there are authors writing fantasy, like The Key of Kilenya, that is not dark and depressing.” – Kimberly Job
balances excitement with thought, external conflict with inner, and
adds just the right mix of mystery and realism.” – Karen Hoover
“This is the beginning of a middle grade series that is sure to be great. Both youths and adults will enjoy The Key of Kilenya.” – Jewel Adams
“To be quite honest, I don’t usually read books in this genre. However, I loved Harry Potter so I took a chance and I have to admit, I liked it! A lot!” – Mandi Slack
“Overall, like the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling, I would most certainly say this book is worth multiple reads.” – Reviewer
“It is an adventure filled ride that is perfect for middle grade students who love action and science fiction.” – Cindy
“The fantastical elements really feel original. In fact, reading this put me in mind of the creatures you would come across in Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis, because the creatures really aren’t the norm.” – Lisa
“I love the Harry Potter references, as a typical teen has most definitely become familiar with those books.” Heidi – Goodreads Reviewer
“As in Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, and the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan, Harry Potter by JK Rowling, Fablehaven by
Brandon Mull and other great books, a teenage boy lives an ordinary
life while another world thinks he’s something special… It’s gripping
all the way through.” – Patricia
“Get this book. You won’t be disappointed unless you have no imagination and don’t like books such as the Harry Potter series (JK Rowling), Fablehaven (Brandon Mull), Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus (Rick Riordan) or movies like Stardust, etc.” – Karl, Reviewer
“Similar to Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus and the Percy Jackson series, this is just a very fun, creative, exciting adventure!” – Debra Smith
story has many twists and turns and loads of suspense throughout it and
will keep the reader fascinated from start to finish. Reminded me of
the Heroes of Olympus books or even Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan and Fablehaven written by Brandon Mull.” – Karen
“If you like books written by award winning authors such as Brandon Mull (Fablehaven, Beyonders) and Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson, Kane Chronicles, Heroes of Olympus), than you will LOVE The Key of Kilenya.” – Sarah
“I love the Fablehaven books by Brandon Mull, but the first one started slow for me. The Key of Kilenya doesn’t start slow.” – Rhonda Lynne Bingham

P aella is one of the most internationally known dishes. You can order Paella in Restaurants all over the world, from Tokio to Chicago, from Paris to Cape Town. You can enjoy this rice dish almost everywhere you travel.
As a person born in Valencia (Spain), born in the center of the region where the Paella started being cooked centuries ago, the author wanted to share the traditional paella recipes; the paella recipes that are cooked in Valencia’s households today and the ones that have been being cooked for generations.
The number of Paella recipes that can be found in internet is huge, but there are not so many that reflect the way Paella is *really* cooked in Valencia.
You can find countless paella recipes variations, using ingredients that were never used by our parents and using cooking procedures that are totally unknown by the people living in the Mediterranean region where this dish is native from.
This short book contains the traditional Paella recipes, the way Paella is cooked today in the valencian households. In fact, my mother together with some relatives and friends helped to put it together to show how they are cooking daily.
There are 7 traditional recipes, the ones most commonly cooked and that you can find today if you travel to Valencia and the counties surrounding this city. You can be sure that this is the way people cook today and, if you venture to cook yourself, you will be able to enjoy a traditional paella at home with family and friends.
We sincerely hope you will enjoy it!

W hen Sophie de Courcy, bored but patient companion to the Dowager Countess of Ruthin, marries her long-time hero, the dashing but rascally French émigré Émile Dubois, she has more excitement than she ever wanted as she is catapulted into Gothic adventure with man vampires and time warps.
With the help of her dauntless maid Agnes – who combines Tarot reading with a no-nonsense attitude – and whose own love interest is Émile’s swaggering valet and former accomplice, Georges – Sophie must come to terms with Émile’s criminal past and help free him from the machinations of their evil neighbours the Kenrick’s.
Set during the French Revolution in North Wales and in war torn France, this story is full of lively humour and combines believable characters and over-the-top Gothic adventure as a pair of down to earth eighteenth century villains become incongruously caught up in occult happenings. This darkly funny, sometimes sad and often romantic tale will captivate readers who enjoy well written steampunk and who love novels in the Gothic tradition.
The erotic content and violent element in this makes it unsuitable for under eighteens.
