“This book was truly magnificent.” –Jessie Potts, USA Today reviewer
Gabriel is lost…
Drawn into the New York City underground in search of his missing sister, Gabriel Morgan is running out of money, options–and hope. Until a brawl in the basement of a seedy Brooklyn bar drags him deeper into the shadows than he’s ever been.
Gabriel is found…
By the leader of a secret society of underground fighters, who operates a network of vicious, no-holds-barred matches where millions change hands. They have no rules. No limits. And they have Gabriel’s sister.
Gabriel is broken…
Taken prisoner and forced to join the organization, Gabriel undergoes a brutal training program in preparation for the ring. To earn his sister’s freedom, and his own, he’ll submit outwardly to the demands of his captors and take the new name they give him–while in secret, he plans a daring revenge that will either shake the society to its twisted core…or seal his own deadly fate.
Gabriel is Angel.
And when Angel fights, he’ll do anything to win. Because the price for losing is his sister’s life.
Praise for the suspense thriller Broken Angel: Book One in the House Phoenix series
“This book was truly magnificent. I could smell the sweat and blood in the ring. Hear the jeers of the audience, and feel the crunch of bone beneath my fist. Vaughn is very good at pulling out the details with stark words and feelings.”
–Jessie Potts, USA Today reviewer (excerpted from Bitten By Books review)
“‘Broken Angel’ is an unrelenting, and exciting, excursion into the depths of criminal underworld darkness with liberal doses of physical and psychological torture. It is not for the faint of heart, but should easily satisfy even the most fervent fans of action oriented entertainment.”
–K. Harris, top Amazon reviewer
“One to re-read on those nights when you’re looking for a truly good read.”
“What can I say…it’s a testosterone-fueled blood bath, and I loved it.”

“ The screams emerged from the house like enraged thunder and were carried on a gentle, guiding breeze that securely deposited them in the robust cornfield where they, at once, became silent.”
Author Cassius Shuman’s debut novel, The Dead Boy’s Legacy is a dark, spellbinding tale that revolves around the legacy of a missing boy, the family who loves him, and the predator who abducted him.
Shuman’s intense, haunting and heartbreaking novel begins with the chilling abduction of young Tommy McCarthy from a desolate road in his quaint hometown. The loss shatters the lives of the boy’s parents, who become embroiled in an arduous battle with their demons as they struggle to overcome their unfathomable grief.
From research acquired while assisting Jeff Mudgett with the book “Bloodstains,” about the author’s great-great-grandfather, notorious serial killer Dr. H.H. Holmes, Shuman brings an educated perspective to the serial killer genre and explores the world of psychological trauma, using sobering prose while weaving the narrative through a factual historical landscape.
The Dead Boy’s Legacy is on one hand a thrilling and complex family saga that illuminates the dark side of human nature while exploring the strength of a family’s love and on the other a compelling journey through hell that’s filled with suspense, intrigue, hope, and miracles.
“The Dead Boy’s Legacy captured my attention immediately. It is a sensitive and caring look into child abduction; I couldn’t put it down. Cassius Shuman’s insightful book escorts us into the fear and horrors that parents experience. We feel their pain and frustration along with them. This is a well researched book that carries us along with the authorities as they go through the grueling process of searching for the lost child.”

Thomas Baldwin finds himself married to a woman he can’t stand, while head-over heels in love with another woman he can’t have. Talk about bad planning. He is something of a kite, buffeted by circumstances which blow him not only through personal crises, but also through some of the most significant events of the late 1800s, including the railroad riots of 1877, the creation of the Homestead Steel Works, the assassination of President Garfield, and the Johnstown Flood. Over time, and with the help of his muse, who dances maddeningly just beyond his reach, he takes control of his life, wresting it from the winds attempting to control him.

I n “Gardening for Seniors – Joyous Activities for Elderly Gardeners, with Tips for Reduced Mobility” you’ll find a wide range of information that will inspire you to continue, or start, gardening.
If you’re looking for an activity you can share with an aging loved one, gardening offers the ideal opportunity to do something satisfying and fun together. Bring your children into the fun and you have a wonderful full-family activity where all of you can share in the tending and the enjoyment of what your plants produce.
The Joys and Benefits of Gardening
Whether it’s something you grew up with, or something that is relatively new to you, you’ll come to discover the joy that gardening brings and the benefits it offers, both physically and mentally. This is particularly true as you get older.
There’s something to be said for planting a seedling or young plant, nurturing it along and watching it grow, then enjoying the benefits of what it produces, such as flowers or vegetables. You will watch birds and butterflies enjoying your flowers. You will add fresh vegetables and herbs to your meals. There’s a whole circle-of-life thing that happens.
It simplifies part of your life and brings things back to basics, which is more important than ever in these times of multitasking, 24/7 internet connection, and 800 channels on the television. A garden is where you can find peace and a sense of purpose. It’s the perfect hobby to help you unplug, unwind, and enjoy.
A garden is a place that reassures. It helps you to feel grounded. It soothes and offers a connection to the earth. This is true even if all you have is a handful of containers or a 4×4 foot raised bed.
Gardening is a great way to maintain flexibility and muscle tone. Doing work around the garden is typically more rewarding, both emotionally and mentally, than other forms of exercise. If you’re physically able to tend to a garden, you’ll find that your metabolism can increase at a rate of three to five times, burning calories along the way. It is said that regular activity for around 30 minutes a day is beneficial for your health and for your sleep, which can easily be accomplished with the addition of common gardening activities like watering, feeding, digging, planting, and weeding to your daily routine.
Gardening can become part of a rehabilitation program. Horticulture therapy has both mental and physical restorative effects. Gardening can benefit those who are recovering from physical illness by retraining muscles and improving coordination and strength.
So, whether you’re looking for more “me” time, or an activity where the whole family can participate and benefit from, gardening can be exactly what you need it to be.
Topics range from the basics of container gardening, how to enjoy gardening with your grandchildren, easy vegetable gardening, and how to enjoy gardening from a wheelchair.
Some senior or elderly gardeners find themselves faced with reduced mobility. Let’s face it, as we get older we may find that we’re not able to do all the hobbies, sports, and energetic activities that we’ve been able to enjoy during our 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, and 50′s. Gardening doesn’t have to be one of them. As a matter of fact, it’s quite therapeutic and satisfying.
