Will My Daddy Ever Work Again? is the warm-hearted yet emotionally difficult journey of a family struggling through long-term unemployment and the ensuing financial issues, such as currently are disrupting thousands of families in America. The family's trials and tribulations are described as seen through the innocent eyes of the family's eldest child of three younger children. Will My Daddy Ever Work Again? is written with two purposes: First, for parents to read with younger children to help them understand their family's unfortunate turn of events, using clear examples of scenarios that either have occurred or may yet unfold in any family experiencing difficult employment and financial times. Second, a child of reading age can experience the story firsthand, and personally realize that their family is not the only family experiencing such difficulties in America, and hopefully feel some comfort in that knowledge. In all, Will My Daddy Ever Work Again? is specifically written to present uncomfortable circumstances and raise important questions regarding our national economic difficulties, and give parents a comfortable way to discuss these many personal problems in a simple, calm, and loving manner with their younger children so to allay their confusion and fear over their current life circumstances

Frances Eastridge was raised poor near the end of the depression on a tobacco farm, with two of the most special parents anyone could have. Roses Will Bloom Again shares the true story of her life, the good times and the bad. She had only one sister, who died at the age of four from Rocky Mountain Fever caused by a tick bite. As a result, Frances grew up an only child. After she married, she and her husband, Herbert George, had three beautiful daughtersCarol, Nancy, and Lisa. Sadly, their daughters were not destined to reach adulthood; they died, one by one, of a rare blood disease. By the time Frances was thirty-four years old, she had lost all of her children. Shortly thereafter, her husband began having cardiac issues, having open heart surgery at the age of forty. The couple then went through one thing after another until he died suddenly from a massive heart attack at forty-eight. While Frances misses her family terribly, she was so proud of all they accomplished in their short lives, particularly her husband. She was amazed by her two oldest daughters, because as sick as they were, they continued to witness for the Lord wherever they went, leading many souls to Him. Frances hopes her story will be an encouragement to brokenhearted people everywhere, showing them that God is always with them.

Forever My Daddy: Denied is about Money, Power, and Legal Lessons Learned by a Daddy Blocked from his Children's Lives. Despite our modern epidemic of fatherlessness -- and the myriad social problems it causes -- vast numbers of loving, caring, devoted fathers are blocked from their children's hearts and lives. It's called Parental Alienation Syndrome -- a byproduct of broken marriages and a scourge of unnecessary emotional pain for kids and fathers alike, but it doesn't have to be this bad. There are powerful ways to cope, even ways to help prevent Parental Alienation Syndrome. Forever My Daddy: Denied is filled with hard-earned wisdom, invaluable lessons, and vital perspectives for every parent and parent-to-be. Relatives and friends impacted by the emotional fallout of marriages that didn't last, as well as all the teachers, coaches, counselors, lawyers, and healthcare professionals who care for children of failed marriages will also benefit from reading Forever My Daddy: Denied. Forever My Daddy: Denied shows how to help prevent Parental Alienation Syndrome, and how to counter and even overcome the obstacles that threaten to deny far too many loving daddies from participating in their children's lives.

Square Squire and the Journey to Dream State, my 394-page, 96,729-word novel is a semiautobiographical story of growing up geeky in the last innocent time when all the basketball players had hopes and none of the gangs had guns. Squire Brooks is a precocious nerd whose only awareness of the transitions in his neighborhood of Compton, California, in the 60s is the opportunity to chuck stones at the increasing number of For Sale signs in the yards of his white neighbors. His fathers deepening involvement in civil rights creates increasing chaos in his home where Squire writes his short stories and daydreams. Adolescence brings peer-driven lessons about girls, puberty, girls, bullies, and girls as he navigates the temptations during his elementary, junior high, and high school years. Squires daydreaming has developed into an imaginative mechanism that frees his mind from all the chaos and allows him to escape to a dream state whenever he writes. After graduating from high school and on a road trip with his dog, Julius, Squire meets Octavia Steves, who teaches him that his dream state is actually a form of meditation that could help him become the writer of his dreams.
