After three children mysteriously vanish from their village, eleven-year-old Jasmine is warned by her father to stay near home. But when she learns that she is targeted as the fourth child, she ignores his wishes and escapes to the dreaded Bantok Forest.

Lost, hungry and frightened in the dark woods, she is befriended by an elfen king, who gives her a powerful lamp to take to her witchlike friend, Maudella. But Maudella is accused of witchcraft and driven from the village. An upset Jasmine sets out to find her and in the process is given the powerful Lamp of Spells for safekeeping–a gift that changes her life forever.

Confronted by giant crows, black hounds, an evil queen and a revengeful king, Jasmine struggles to protect the lamp as she sets out on a quest to save her world from the powerful forces of evil. With a major battle for her kingdom looming, Jasmine must make the difficult choice of what to do.

Pages: 238
Published: July 2012

After two decades of technological invention, economic collapse, social upheaval, political polarization and a war on terror, one generation carries on their shoulders the responsibility to return us to a time of social balance and economic growth. They are the Hooked Up generation, born into disruption but destined to lead the nation and world into a transcendental period of human tolerance and peace. They are a ‘Hooked Up’ generation, hooked on the Internet, hooked together by the Internet and hooking up in relationships managed and defined by the Internet.

In Jack Myers new book, he shares insights and research on why today’s college students may prove to be the next great generation and possibly the greatest generation of the 21st century. After 20 years of chaos, Jack’s theories and research give us hope that by 2030, thanks to the Hooked Up generation, we will be living in a time of ethnic, gender and sexual equality; peaceful global coexistence; extraordinary human communications capabilities; spiritual renaissance; political collaboration, corporate social responsibility and economic expansion. After reading Hooked Up, you may change your mind about the future and how technology may just be the best hope for mankind. This is a must read for parents, educators, economist and business leaders, politicians, religious leaders and all those born into the Internet Age.

“Who cares about 17–21 year olds? Jack Myers does, and if you want a front row seat on where the future of business and civilization are going you should too.

Pages: 270
Published: November 2011

Safe Haven is a new collection of short stories. Each character shares a deep longing and active seeking for an elusive seeming love that will never fail them, and a sense of true meaning and purpose in an ultimately meaningless world. Their quest is our own.

Awaiting news of her son gone missing during World War II, a mother recalls his childhood victory over polio.

A young woman weighs the promise of John Kennedy’s new frontier against the reality of her best friend’s breakdown.

A child searches for proof of celestial goodness while lobbying to secure a spot for her family in a neighbor’s bomb shelter.

An extramarital affair propels a suburban mother to awaken to true desire on the eve of the Apollo 11 space walk.

The end of an era and an unplanned pregnancy converge on the occasion of John Lennon’s murder.

In her wry and wrenching debut collection of linked short stories, Safe Haven, Susan Dugan inhabits the lives of three generations of American women seeking refuge from the harsh realities of their moments in time and finding it at last where they forgot to look; patiently waiting in their own backyards.
