Genre: Memoir/History

“Dad”, son of a Union Civil War soldier, and one of nine children, was born in 1872 on a farm on the great plains of Nebraska. Although Dad was born to be a farmer, he always had an insatiable desire for travel and adventure.

“Dad’s Reminiscences Reveries and Ruminations” was written in 1918 By Henry Frederick Cathcart (“Dad”) while stationed in France during World War one, where he served as a Mess Sergeant. It was there where he acquired the nick-name “Dad” because he was so much older than most of his fellow soldiers.

First published in 1919, “Dad’s Reminiscences, Reveries and Ruminations” includes Dad’s memoirs from early childhood on the Nebraska farm to his Army days in France. They are full of adventure, romance, and tales of sad and happy days from farm life to war in stories told mostly in poetry form that are all true, and give the reader a glimpse into the life of a plain-spoken but gifted storyteller nick-named “Dad”.

From an historical standpoint,”Dad’s Reminiscences, Reveries and Ruminations” shows insight into the first-hand experience, background, and personal life of a WW One soldier who joined the fray at a time when “doing my bit” was considered an admirable undertaking, as it still is for today’s soldier.

Patricia Pulley was lucky enough to find and marry the man of her dreams. Together, they had children; they built a life. Then, with no warning, her husband died and left her widowed. In an instant, everything changed; Pat’s children watched as she struggled to replace the only man she had known. She needed someone to love, protect, and care for her-just like the man she had lost much too soon.

This book is the true story of Jim Pulley’s mother’s murder. The title represents the stages of her life. The picture on the front cover is likely the last thing she saw. Included inside are personal writings from his Mom, and actual police reports from the investigation.

Pages: 70
Published: October 2011

The incredible true story of a woman who has had to overcome numerous medical issues and heartbreaking losses and how she has dealt with those ups and downs. Her Antiphospholipid Syndrome diagnosis has caused most of the side effects and permanent disabilities she now suffers from. It also reveals how she has been denied numerous times for benefits for her illnesses because the agency says there is not enough medical evidence to support a claim, even though her doctors state otherwise. The book also tells of how she is the mother of a son with Asperger’s Syndrome (High Functioning Autism), and the daily struggles he himself has faced. One of those issues is how he was physically attacked in his special education classroom by two supposedly trained aides. That event has left him traumatized to this day. Through it all, she continues to keep a positive outlook, has a strong faith and maintains a sense of humor.
