BY AUTHOR/ ATTORNEY JONATHAN MILLER Edward Hobbs was an attorney, who was about to be disbarred for transporting illegal drugs from across the border into America. He pays a price of one-million dollars for freedom, but never realized that wasn't enough. He was the boss of Jen Song, a legal secretary, who was accused of killing him, and leaving his body on top of an Albuquerque volcano. The fireworks were about to begin in Albuquerque at the same time Jen falls, and cuts her hand on a sharp edge of volcanic rock. The blood from her hand drips on the dead body of Edward Hobbs, as she stares at the strangle marks on his neck, while anticipating to make her first phone call. Jen becomes hysterical, realizing that her dyslexia and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder were minor problems as compared to facing the gruesome murder of her boss. During the impending investigation for the murder of Edward Hobbs, former prosecutor Luna Cruz defends her only client, and friend, Jen Song. The nightmare begins for Luna, while she uncovers a conspiracy, involving lawyers and their connection to transporting illegal drugs across the border. The author creates a legal thriller that becomes a masterpiece from his expertise in criminal law through experience, combined with knowledge of the Southwest detention centers. Jonathan Miller pulls no punches, while describing the horror of a career in which he lives, and speaks pure truth as he tells the story through reality. His unique background, keen sense of humor, and detailed description of crime through the eyes of an insider, makes quite an interesting read. There's never a dull moment, from the beginning of an inverstigation of a brutal murder to the verdict. The journey for Luna Cruz from Texas to Mexico adds more drama to the story with a twist and surprises, while she desperately attempts to put the mysterious puzzle together, but the pieces don't fit. The dialogue in this story is rich in color. The strange characters draw a picture of the Southwest detention centers, and what goes on behind closed doors. A home for prisoners where there is no mercy, whether your guilty, or possibly innocent. I would recommend this book to all mystery lovers, who enjoy chilling stories that are packed with drama. "Volcano Verdict" is as witty as "My Cousin Vinny." Suspense blossoms like a flower throughout this thriller, as good as it was in "Presumed Innocent." Jonathan Miller manages to light-up the story, like fireworks on the fourth of July, and the volcano does erupt! Geri Ahearn, A.I.O.M. Author of 6 books Author Geri Ahearn, INC

BY: Kelly Moran Kelly Moran created a portrait as perfect as an artist would do, before that picture is displayed to the world. "An Insomniac's Dream" is a collection of poems and short stories. Her poems are crafted with the soul intention to inspire the reader, and her finishing touches in this picture are the intriguing short stories that make the reader crave for more. To complete her masterpiece, she adds many colors to bring her picture to life. Her poems speak on a personal level through experience in life, and dreams. Her poetic muse ranges from love to regret, and times of grief. The poems tug at the reader's heart as in "Candle Wishes." The reader can feel the pain, remorse and regret as we step into the author's shoes, while she looks back into haunting memories of the past. Suddenly, tears flow from the reader's eyes, imagining old ghosts who leave scars behind. One moment the reader is smiling and laughing, the next moment the reader is crying. "Every Pedal Falls" is thought-provoking, forcing the reader to turn the clock back, and compare their own life experience. "Dream Of Me" is loving, passionate, and sentimental. "To Better Days" inspire with words of encouragement. "Cries To Heaven" speaks of sadness and regret of events that make us sorry for diving back into a time of sunshine, until the unexpected hurricane arrived, changing our lives forever. In her sonnet "Reality's Pain" takes the reader on an emotional dark journey of what once was, and could have been. A risk taken in life by many of us in which we can relate to the same situation, forcing us to imagine where would we be without trial and error? Of course, all readers with open minds relate, and realize we are forced to learn from mistakes. But, we also become stronger. The short stories within the pages of "An Insomniac"s Dream" are chilling, filled with suspense, and remind you to turn on the lights, and always look behind you. "A Letter To Grandma" cries out loud the meaning of loss, and the suffering endured through a dreadful event we are all forced to face in this lifetime. "Thank You For Coming" leaves you on the edge of your seat, and it is as scary as some scenes are in "Cape Fear." Then the reader is taken through the doors of supernatural as in the movie "What Lies Beneath." If you were never superstitious before, you will be now! For the icing on the cake, the reader is left with similar afterthoughts as in the mind of Julia Roberts in "Sleeping with The Enemy." I would recommend this book as a good read for teens, and adults. I also highly recommend it to poetry lovers, and reader's who enjoy thrillers. Kelly Moran's poetry is as refreshing as that of "Emily Dickinson." Her short stories, combined with sonnets and breathtaking poetry are viewed in many different colors. The mood of each color is painted through her muse with skill and precision to take hold of the reader's attention, while you crave for more, leaving the reader in total satisfaction!

BY: J. R. Gordon "Graves In The Wilderness" takes the reader on a historical adventure on horseback through the lives of Piper and Diego, two men who become brothers. Diego, nicknamed "NKawa" from his father, was a sole survivor after a brutal, merciless ambush of Comanche aggressors. The two brother's begin their journey through the trials and tribulations of the Civil War. They are forced to leave sorrows behind as they venture out to the early pioneer days of an underdeveloped Australia. In a mission to desperately begin a new life, leaving shattered memories behind, they are confronted with more tragedy and heartbreak. Their journey continues through bloodshed lands as a result of brutality, while a strong bond develops between them, sharing loyalty and compassion. The story is a touching tale of triumph, and loalty. Although the two men suffer from loss of family, and all possessions, they never react with bitterness and hatred. Instead, they help the less fortunate at all costs, even their own lives. J.R. Gordon depicts strength of the human spirit through the two brother's who fight for their highly valued morals. This novel is as action-packed as the movie "Speed " as the wild ride takes you through chilling, unexpected events. "Graves In The Wilderness" is rich in compassion, and as emotional as "The Patriot" with Mel Gibson. The author's knowledge of the historical events in the Civil War era, and the Indigenous culture was more than impressive. The reader experiences "A Pure Adrenaline Rush" each time the two brother's are forced to fight in unexpected horror to protect the rights of the innocent. There's never a dull moment in this novel, and the enthralling read is emotional, and values human spirit as highly as viewed in "The Next Karate kid." A highly recommended read for all those who enjoy a story based on history, combined with action, suspense, and compassion. "Graves In The Wilderness" is a superb combination of "Rich-Man, Poor-Man" and "Gone With The Wind." Gordon's expertise in describing the lives of two completely different men, adding drama to the Civil War era, results in a sentimental narrative that any historical reader would not want to miss!
