**Welcome Back Author MORGAN FITZSIMONS**

I Welcome Morgan Fitzsimons!
Multipublished Author
Morgan has drawn and painted pictures since early childhood. At eleven, she
went to a school with a trendy, young art mistress, who honed up Morgan's love
of art and encouraged her to study all aspects of it. She studied the arts, and
obtained an NDD, ATD, and a BA. She lived in Lancashire, Shropshire, Merseyside,
and North Wales. She also lived in London and Peterborough and has spent
time overseas, including Paris, where she sat with other students, and painted
in the Place de Tetre and exhibited with artists along the Seine. In more recent
years, she has spent time in Africa,and the USA in periods from one week, to
three months at a time.
She has a passion for knowledge and reading, and a deep love of books. In the
early days as a teacher, she illustrated, and wrote for several publishers. She
was head of Special Needs spanning twenty years. Her physical disability, and
other problems led her to retire from teaching, and concentrate on other things.
She has designed, and illustrated for various publishers and manufacturers,
and has painted and exhibited in other countries, as well as the UK.
She loves history and myths, and legends from the past, in particular those of
her own Celtic background from Ireland, and Wales. This comes through in her
paintings, as well as some of her books. She loves the realms of imagination,
and themes that take you away from everyday living. She is also deeply committed
to her faith as a Christian, and loves heroes and heroines in the Bible stories,
such as Esther and David, and the very romantic stories of Ruth and Rachel.
Most of her stories have a moral heart to them.

5 Star REVIEW~~The SIN of Addison Hall~~Author JEFFREY A. ONORATO~~

Addison Hall is a bright, average looking man, who lives in the city of
Wakork, which is the second largest city in the country of Alpdon. He
suffers from loneliness, is self-conscious, has a dry sense of humor, and
visualizes his life as a burden. His speech is stammered whenever he
speaks, and his increased sweating, and hidden fears are the results of
his anxiety. He was treated with disrespect and humiliation from Mimi,
Lenina, and Julia, realizing he's not a big hit with dating women. He
worried about finding a soul mate, because he was over age thirty, and
needed someone to share his feelings with. His anger toward God was
also hidden, in fear of being punished more than what he lives through
at the present time. Addison is a camp worker, forced to work in an
unskilled job, and is labeled as an unappealing-looking laborer. He works at the camp with Nigel, who he knew for twenty-five years, and they live in a country where beautiful is superior. Why was Chancellor
Brock on a crusade to gather up all types of appearance-improving aids?
What haunting memory does Addison have about Starck, and what is
Addison afraid of? Why did the morbidly obese work at these camps?
I recommend this novel to all science fiction lovers, and to all those who
enjoy thrillers, packed with drama. The story is gripping, chilling, and
thought-provoking. The setting is dark, scary, and painted in satire. Jeffrey A. Onorato created a Masterpiece, with his unique writing style
in the history of Addison Hall's life. This incredible story leaves an
aftermath, after reading about one man's journey in a life that's ruled by disturbed, dysfunctional leaders. Once the book is closed, is it possible
to ever witness another Addison Hall? What is the true definition of sinful that the gifted, talented author points out, page-after-page? How does Otka try to help Addison survive, after he is threatened to be eliminated? The reader can hear the sound of the train every time Addison is transported to the camp for another dreadful, horrifying day
of work. "THE SIN OF ADDISON HALL" is as thrilling as BEYOND RECOGNITION, and is as captivating as THE GREEN MILE, with Tom Hanks.

5 Star REVIEW~~"BEYOND SEDUCTION: Loving Without Limits" Author LISA PANKAU

How do you keep the flame of love from burning out in a marriage? How do you avoid becoming another sad statistic of divorce? What does a
successful marriage demand? What does commitment mean, and what
is its value in unconditional love? Will a marriage work if we don't believe in both romance, and reality? Should each partner know the true

How important is love, acceptance, and respect in every marriage? How should couples deal with psychological, emotional, and spiritual repercussions?

partner deal with it? Why is it important to know who you are, and what
you want in a marriage? What happens in a marriage when communication is nonexistent? Lisa Pankau has presented these questions, with solutions, and helpful tips in "BEYOND SEDUCTION."
Her greatest passion is to help other people find love and keep it forever,
while she encourages education, and a thirst for a deeper understanding
of strength, and spiritual growth. The author has experienced life at both
ends as a divorcee and a widow, from dread and despair, to the untold
bliss of true love. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who is searching for a soul mate, for all married couples, and to anyone who
seeks advice on how to spice up a relationship. This book is an excellent
resource on how to make a relationship grow in strength, and how to
hold on to what you have. The author includes helpful tips with
Aromatherapy recipes, music, and sensual atmospheres. She shares
helpful hints in role playing and sensory acknowledgment, while discussing the importance of trust, confidence,and intimacy between
each partner. Lisa Pankau's presentation, based on experience and knowledge, is thought-provoking, uplifting and inspiring. She gently
takes the reader by the hand, shows them the ultimate importance
of an open mind and heart, and how love can continue to grow in
spirit, and strength. "BEYOND SEDUCTION: Loving Without Limits"
is as radiant as MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE, and as irresistible as
UNDER TUSCAN SUN, with Diane Lane.

It has been noted for decades that in the world of romance and relationships, opposites attract, and statistics have shown that many
still believe it. Unfortunately, this is a myth for Victoria Ballard, even
though her new prince charming is tall, dark and handsome. However,
the reason why this is a myth in Victoria's situation is because she was
forced to marry Prince Rashid Davar, through a marriage contract that
was made between her father, and Rashid. Victoria's father,who was the
light of her life, agreed on the contract to ensure his peace of mind, prior
to his passing. He wanted his daughter to be in good hands. Although
his intentions were loving and caring for his daughter's well-being, a
forced marriage left Victoria in total devastation, especially when Rashid
was the type of man she feared. To make matters worse, she had no
intentions to engage in a relationship, or consider marriage. She worked
hard, and devoted her life to climbing the ladder of success. She achieved, and her goals and dreams were to continue to improve her
career as a New York financial executive. Her father, her career, and her independence meant everything to her, until her entire world fell apart.
How does Victoria survive in a forced marriage, with a man she wants to
run from, who is known to her as ruthless? Does Victoria and Rashid find love, or a dangerous affair? What tragedy happened in Victoria's
life that she takes the blame for? What happened to Victoria's brother?
How far does Victoria go with her resentment to Rashid? Why was Victoria determined to reach the top of her father's corporation? I highly
recommend this novel to all Contemporary Romance lovers and to those
who enjoy adventure, combined with drama. Lynda Coker created a plot
that draws the reader's attention from page-to-page with vivid imagery
in a powerfully moving story of love, betrayal, and redemption. The title
fits the story like a glove, the characters come to life, and the adventure
is filled with challenges as two cultures clash. "THE OCEAN BETWEEN"
is as heartbreaking as NOW & FOREVER and contains as much shifting
drama as Danielle Steel's KALIDOSCOPE, with Jaclyn Smith, and Perry

5 Star REVIEW~~The Organ Grinder And The Monkey~~Author SAM MOFFIE

Inspired by the work of Sam Moffie, after reading NO MAD, I was
extremely pleased to find that THE ORGAN GRINDER AND THE MONKEY is as descriptive, and intelligent. The author is one of a kind, a
master in creating unique characters, who come to life, with personalities the reader will remember. Seymour's dream is to be a
veterinarian, after he graduated college, he takes a trip to New York to
fulfill his dream. Irving decides that he wantes to join the New York City
Police Department, after his haunting memory of being lost on a field
trip in his younger days, and being rescued by a police officer. Although
Constance has a wealthy family, the good fortunes were never shared
with her. Her dream in life is to become a Rockette, but after moving to
New York City, she dances in a strip-club, where survival was the name
of the game. With perfection, the author weaves the lives of these three
characters into an outrageous, humorous story in non-stop action, page-after-page. The life of each character and how they react to challenges
and struggles is blended with precision into the unfortunate of today's
society as they venture out into the real world, and learn through experience the difference between dreams, and reality. I highly recommend this novel to contemporary fiction lovers, and anyone who
enjoys an interesting story, packed with emotion, and humor. Sam Moffie has an incredible imagination as he paints his creativity into an
unforgettable dialogue, while the fast-paced storytelling moves along
with delight. Does Constance survive New York City? What factors in
Seymour's life left him emotionally traumatized? Do the three characters
share anything in common? How did Irving's upbringing influence his
attitude on the solutions to life's problems? As we read on, the author
invites you to step into a roller-coaster-ride of mixed-emotions, broken
dreams, and psychological twists-and-turns through the lives of
dysfunctional personalities.The more you read, the more you become
addicted to Sam Moffie's distinctive, refreshing, and hilarious voice.
"THE ORGAN GRINDER AND THE MONKEY" is as entertaining as
TRADING PLACES, and as funny as ANALYZE THIS, with Robert
De Niro, and Billy Crystal.

recommend this novel to all science fiction lovers, and for all those

setting, including ongoing drama between the spaceship, and the planet.
The plot is interesting as the reader follows the battle scenes, creatures
come to life and emotions fill the pages as we read on about the journey

story blossoms, the reader can detect good versus evil in this fast paced

with loss. There's never a dull moment from page-to-page, leaving the
reader anxious to discover what happens next. Follow the twins in this
fascinating adventure as you join them on a captivating roller-coaster-ride of mixed emotions on an intergalactic journey. "SCOUT SQUAD:
Going Native" is as clever as MEN IN BLACK, and as intense as Steven
Spielberg's WAR OF THE WORLDS, with Tom Cruise.

Inspired by Michael Connelly and John Grisham, along with his passion for
writing, Andrew Parker created a spectacular chilling story in his Masterpiece,
titled "Prophecy Of Power." Jacob Droutman was tormented for a long time,
by a sad, haunting memory of the disappearance of his older brother. While
Jacob preaches at the synagogue in New York as a rabbi, he tries to follow his father's footsteps, but has always been confused about the teachings of
his own religion, curious to learn about different religions. Jacob meets a
young woman, who is interested in details on Jacob's life history, because
her own brother also disappeared, along with her brother's two friends. Ayn
encouraged Jacob to read about a story, involving three Jewish students,
claiming they found a lost tomb. As Jacob began to investigate, he found out
that the discovery did not take place, and a student disappeared. Who was
John Duncan, how well did Ayn know him, and why was he declared a
danger to national security? Jacob's investigation began to bloom, while his
apartment is searched, and his landlord is murdered. Who did Jacob have
to follow, and who was following him? Who stole the papers from a CIA
agent, and how did they end up in Jacob's hands? I highly recommend this
book to all mystery, and thriller lovers. The story is incredible, the setting is
realistic, and the characters come to life. Furthermore, the author penned
a nail-biting and suspenseful plot, which is totally entertaining page-after-page, made for the movie screen. Why was Ayn murdered? Follow Jacob's
journey from New York to Israel as his investigation explodes, while he
walks in the same path as the missing students did. What does he find in
Jerusalem, can answers be found in a buried tomb, and who is the next
prophetic world power? What is found in Daniel's Prophecy, does Jacob
uncover the truth he searched for, or does his journey become Mission
Impossible? Andrew Parker's "PROPHECY OF POWER" is as electrifying as
15 MINUTES, and portrays an imaginatively living suspense on the same
scale as FRANTIC, with Harrison Ford.

5 Star REVIEW~"PONEASEQUA: The Goddess Of The Waters" By Stephanie Duckworth-Elliot

Ranked on Amazon as The Most Helpful Favorable Review!
Stephanie Duckworth-Elliot created a great adventure in a compelling
journey through an incredible story portrayed in the life of McKenzie
Jones, who was challenged by her teacher to present the history of her
Native American culture in front of the entire class. She is a proud,
strong young woman, who believes in her Wampanoag heritage, and
her upbringing shines light into her heart. Although she works hard
trying to convince classmates of the history, and knowledge of her
roots, can she prepare decades of history in one weekend? Does her
grandfather help her to absorb the history and wisdom of the ancient
Wampanoag culture, and is she confident to stand tall with her
presentation? Will she remember to present the morals and values of
a proud culture, while removing misconceptions that exist, or will she
face humiliation, and disciplinary action? I highly recommend this
novel to young adults, and to anyone interested in the history of
the Native American culture. I also recommend this book to young
women, who wish to build their self-esteem and confidence by
following the strength, and spirit of McKenzie. The author painted a
portrait of vivid imagery, with true to life characters in a breathtaking
story. In the end, does McKenzie find the final peace that she has been
searching for? Stephanie Duckworth-Elliot penned a setting where the
legends told from McKenzie's grandfather can be softly heard in the
background as warrior's dance to the beating of drums, turning the
plot into a Masterpiece. Follow McKenzie to the farm, where she
tended chores with the light of her life, her grandfather. Listen carefully
to his wondrous storytelling as the bond between him, and McKenzie
becomes stronger. Did McKenzie's grandfather help McKenzie to grow
in spirit, while claiming her Wampanoag identity? "PONEASEQUA: The
Goddess Of The Waters" is as entertaining as THE HORSE WHISPERER,
and as inspiring as Walt Disney's TUCK EVERLASTING.

5Star REVIEW~"HOLY SHIT: A Brief Look At Christianity's Problem"

By Author Dauson Lovi
Genre: Religion, Skeptics, Atheist
Dauson Lovi conducted research on the doctrine of the trinity, views
on Christianity ideology, and a realistic view on the writings of the
Bible. The author presents documentation and results obtained from
the trinity, discusses Moses, and translation of the word God, and its
symbolic use. Although God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost remain
a controversial subject among various religions,it remains the backbone
of faith for the author. I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys
reading history on Christian religions, doctrines, and the impact on
American society. Dauson Lovi's presentation in his first novel is based
on his studies, after twelve years of research. His interest in matters of
religion, politics, and history throughout the past decade has become
his passion for writing, and devotion to research. The author invites the
reader to explore Christianity under a different light. Would you like to
read a collection of thoughts, which illustrate the problems facing
Christianity? Do you enjoy mythology? If you are interested in following
the scriptures, and evidence on misconstrued metaphors, then this
book is a good choice. How many people believe, and follow the readings
in the Bible? Are there misinterpretations of the doctrine of the trinity?
Why was the word Elohim used in the Bible, and what does it translate?
The author's presentation includes discussion on the Golden Rule, the
creation of evil, and the teachings of intolerance. Furthermore, Dauson
Lovi describes the different books of scripture that are followed
throughout the world of religion,confirming the trinity in different
places. "HOLY SHIT: A Brief Look At Christianity's Problem" is as
interesting and impressive as THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, with
Mel Gibson.

Most teenagers, especially in today's society not only have to battle with
being too young for the adults and being too old for the younger children,
but are forced to face peer-pressure and the demands of America's
economy in need. Victoria Benson is not classified as the average shy,
follow-all-your-friends typical teenager. She may have similar issues
that most seventeen year old girls experience, but she is also different
in other ways. She's honest and open, not afraid to speak her mind,
whether she has permission to, or not. Victoria will indeed find many
closed doors in life as we all do. She will have her ups-and-downs, fall,
and get up again. But her quality of honesty will be her key to open up
new doors, after learning life's tough lessons. The experience of hard
knocks and falls will help her to better understand other people, and
become more sympathetic, and passionate. I highly recommend this
novel for young adults. All the characters are realistic, most teenagers
will be able to relate to Vicky's issues, and the story is true to life. How
does Vicky deal with the wicked girls who torment? Does Vicky adjust
to the financial burdens within her family unit, and does she continue
to be selfish? Is it Vicky's attitude that gets her in trouble, or her honesty? Take an emotional roller-coaster-ride with Vicky through
financial highs-and-lows, difficult relationships, and changes after her
father abandoned her, and her mother. Follow Vicky's path as she
blossoms to maturity, after surviving many unexpected storms that
life throws upon us. The reader will witness how peer-pressure, and
lifestyles influence the road to adulthood. "THE ATTITUDE GIRL" is
as entertaining as ERIN BROCKOVICH, and as deeply moving as
A WALK TO REMEMBER with Shane West, and Mandy Moore.
