A tiny premature infant is delivered into the caring hands of NICU nurse, Annie Billodeaux. His father, Matthew Keaton,is the newly hired running back for the New Orleans Sinners football team. His mother is deceased, victim of a stray bullet fired in a gang war. Matt blames himself for having brought his wife to the city.

Annie’s heart goes out to little Daniel and his suffering father. As she teaches Matt the ins and outs of the NICU and the handling of his child, her affection for both grows into a love she cannot confess so soon to the grief-stricken man.

Matt feels the pull of Annie’s tenderness, but won’t act on it out of respect for his wife’s recent death. When Daniel is able to go home, how can Matt keep Annie near until the right time comes for him to voice his love for the Angel of the NICU?

Non-Fiction – Exploring the Landscape of the Mind

Exploring the Landscape of the MindExploring the Landscape of the Mind
Understanding Human Thought and Behaviour
By Stephen S. Clark
Publisher: Xlibris
ISBN: 978-1524518981 (pb)
ISBN: 978-1524518998 (hc)
ASIN: B07965TB4N
Genre: psychology, biology, evolution, non-fiction
Formats Available For Review: pdf

This book is based on the premise that humankind is first and foremost the outcome of the process of biological evolution. Recognition of this is fundamental to our understanding of who we are and how we behave. All living things have evolved the physical and mental attributes that promote their prospects for survival; they are good at doing the things that enable them to pass on their genes to succeeding generations and we are no exception. Of course, through the development of culture we have gained some freedom from our biological origins. Nevertheless, evolution has constructed the foundation upon which culture is built.

The first part of the book, ‘Ourselves Interacting with the World,’ presents an overview of the main capabilities that evolution has endowed us with and that enable us to interact with the environment in advantageous ways. This includes our senses which act as ‘windows on the world,’ and also, of great importance, our emotions and ability to remember. Our ability to think is perhaps the crowning achievement of our evolutionary journey, and, of course, we must be able to act in a timely and effective manner.

The second part of the book, ‘Living Together,’ traces the history of how we became social creatures. To be truly human we had to be capable of sharing and cooperation. We also needed to be able to control our aggressiveness and talent for deception. We settled down, making the transition from hunter-gatherers to urban dwellers and agreed upon values and norms of behaviour that enhanced our ability to get along. . Ultimately, we came to see good and bad as a morality of right and wrong, further augmenting group cohesiveness.

In the final part of the book, ‘Challenges and Opportunities,’ attention turns to a consideration of the constraints and possibilities that must be considered in looking to the future. These realities can be seen to play out in four social arenas: the pursuit of fairness, the seeking of justice, the interplay of political beliefs and good government and, ultimately, a united society that is, at the same time a true community. Our quest for these things will be greatly aided by a deep knowledge and appreciation of our evolutionary past and the indelible imprint it has left upon us. It may even lead us to that most elusive of all things, happiness.

Sam and Retta’s romance might have to take a back seat to stay one step ahead of danger as the past snakes out, elusive and sinister, to threaten everyone connected to the package. A long-hidden family secret spirals to an unavoidable reality hell-bent on complicating their growing affection. The couple, with a group of close friends, must put personal agendas aside to form an alliance against a malevolent enemy and the elusive truth—where winner takes all. But it’s hard to get answers when all the suspects are dead.

It’s 1947 on a U.S. Army base near Roswell, New Mexico, and eleven-year-old Kate’s friend and neighbor, Billy, shows her a secret.

A CIA agent arrives at Billy’s house, to recover the Top Secret items, and threatens the family, warning them to never talk about the incident—ever!

Special Agent Falco informs them of their sudden reassignment to Germany. Billy, not wanting to move to Germany or return his treasures, begs Kate for help. Feisty and fiercely loyal, she agrees to hide him.

Thus begins a most unusual road trip in which the two friends use their wits, their knowledge of the terrain and geography around the base, and sheer determination to evade capture. Kate must also reach her grandfather, more than two hundred miles away, and warn him how the secret poses a dangerous threat … to anyone involved.

Their race has begun, and there’s no turning back.
