One of our two memoirs is the true story of Second Lieutenant Leonard J Kovar and his battle to survive as a prisoner of war during World War II, as told by him.  Mr. Kovar’s plane was shot down during its eleventh mission.  He parachuted out of the fiery bomber into a sky filled with heavy flax, exploding bullets and screaming German fighter planes. He landed behind enemy lines, struggled to avoid capture by enemy soldiers and civilians angry about the damage done by American bombs. This is a candid telling of his eventual capture and his incredible battle to survive during various POW camps and death marches in advance of the Russian army during the worst winter storm ever recorded in European history. This book is an honest account and a fresh look at a war that has faded into history but has not faded from people’s minds. WWII Prisoner of War: How I Survived is available in print and also available as an eBook.

This candid, compelling, and compassionate novel could have been torn out of today’s newspaper headings.  One minute Texan Jimmy Heron is sitting next to his beloved wife of fifty years eating pie, the next minute she is dead in his arms; killed by a racist, woman-hating, semi-automatic gun-toting maniac. Shattered by Lou’s senseless death, Jimmy Heron hits the road – can’t sit still; can’t hardly breathe. He roams the western landscape looking for solace until he lands in the tiny pioneer town of Reliance, Oregon. Here he settles, figuring it is as good a place as any to wait until he dies.  With kindness and perseverance, however, his new neighbors delicately slide into his life. A lesbian couple eagerly awaiting the birth of their first child, a Native American ranch hand, a big-hearted dog, and a small band of generous people gently encourage Jimmy to deal with loss, death and love. Thus, Jimmy Heron begins his healing process.  The Second Coming of Curly Red will grab you by the heart and not let go. Also available as an eBook.

Our first published book is a work of literary fiction. Persephone’s Seeds is a psychologically intense novel – dark, agitated, and imaginative. The point of view is inside the mind of its neurotic hero. It’s a very archetypal story. If fantastical stories and unrelenting disconsolate journeys of betrayal, manipulation and redemption sounds good to you, this is your kind of book.

As one reader said, “This book is a real scream of consciousness.” Another said, “I’ve read so many books and your book is the most unique I have ever read. It takes you places no one could imagine. I highly recommend Persephone’s Seeds. It’s incredible. The subject is death, but it’s really about living.” – Dr. Veronica Esagui host of author’s forum and author of many books including Veronica’s Diary, The Journey Of Innocence
