Young, beautiful Vicky Lester grew up oppressed in dismal, gruesome inner- city surroundings. She meets and befriends Stan, a lonely, kind man who encourages and helps her to strike out on her own and make a better life for herself. But Vicky is haunted by a horrific childhood secret, a trauma so deeply imbedded in her psyche that even she can’t confront it head on. Laden with dread and guilt, Vicky embarks on a memorable and promiscuous journey as if unwittingly acting out the playbook of her youth. Ultimately, emboldened by Stan, she struggles to overcome the memories she has hidden for so long. Will Vicky be able to find real love and a brighter future?

This deeply moving story also confronts us with the ageless, heart-wrenching question: Are individuals solely to blame for their actions, or is society?

True Crime: Suffocated

SuffocatedSuffocated
By David Tognoni
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1468140019
Published: April 2012
Pages: 314
Genre: True Crime, Child Abuse

“Your son Wes has been suffocated,” they were the most terrifying words for a father to hear. Frantically, Dave Tognoni, drives five hours to the hospital, horrified with a torment of thoughts, saying, “Hang on Wes, hang on.” There in intensive care he finds his intelligent, active toddler son now naked, sedated, and unconscious. When the accident happened, his wife, a trained paramedic, revived him through CPR, but it was too late. After heart-wrenching weeks of inconsolable tears, rocking Wes, gathering his family for support, the verdict was in: massive brain damage. Wes would live out his life with severe/profound Cerebral Palsy in a wheel chair functioning at the level of an infant. Dave and his wife divorce and his ex-wife is bitterly unrelenting in her attacks through the divorce courts using his two older children as monetary pawns leaving him financially ruined, separated, and estranged from his children. Later, as Dave is trying to make sense of it all, he finds out that all might not be, as it seems. Dave watches a horrific documentary on TV about Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome now called Factitious Disorder by Proxy where mothers use suffocation, poison etc. on their own children, to gain attention. His ex-wife’s profile eerily seems to fit. This is the true story of a divorced father, demonized by the liberal “justice” system, ensnared in a web of puzzling deception, relentlessly attacked and intentionally jailed in “debtor’s prison” by his ex-wife. Dave survives the devastation of Wes’ suffocation, the destruction of his family, to boldly present the facts of the manipulative facade. You decide the truth.

Science/Nutrition – The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet

The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human DietThe Hunter Gatherer Within
By Kerry G. Brock, Ph.D. & George M. Diggs, Jr., Ph.D.
Publisher: Botanical Research Inst of Texas
ISBN: 978-1889878409
Published: February 2013
Pages: 260
Genre: Science and Health

What is the healthiest diet to eat? Why do diets almost always fail? Why do we have a crisis of obesity, diabetes, and other health problems in the U.S. today? Why are even children becoming obese and unhealthy? The answers can be found when one understands what recent scientific research says, when one realizes that conventional dietary advice and the Standard American Diet are completely mismatched with our genetics. For the past two million years our ancestors existed as hunter-gatherers, living entirely on wild plants and animals. Only during the last one percent of that time have they eaten foods resulting from the agricultural and industrial revolutions. The modern diet is now based largely on processed foods made from flour, refined sugars, and processed vegetable oils—products unknown to our ancestors. Exposing our hunter-gatherer genetic makeups to inappropriate modern diets has come with a price—a dramatic increase in the “Diseases of Civilization,” including heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune conditions, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, and acne. This book examines the problem and looks at practical, science-based ways to improve health and address weight regulation using simple diet and lifestyle changes.

Humorous Memoir – Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke

Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand SmokeHairspray High Heels and Second Hand Smoke
by Frank Meyner
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1478195634
Published: November 2012
Pages: 382
Genre: Humor, Memoir

In “Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke” experienced cosmetologist Frank Meyner shares his stories from behind the chair. Meyner’s memoir offers readers an interesting look at the career of a hairdresser and the start of one of America’s biggest high-end retailers, Neiman Marcus.

With his cutting shears in his hand, Meyner moved from his tiny West Texas town to Fort Worth, completely unaware of what lay ahead for him in the big city. At 20-years-old, he started at Neiman Marcus, working as the assistant to well-known stylist Phillip Trotter. From there, he entered the high-society world of Fort Worth.

In “Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke,” Meyner details how he opened his own salon, which is still open nearly three decades later. He shares the stories of his customers and colleagues in a tribute to thank them for the love and generosity they have shown him over the years.

“Sometimes we need an escape from our everyday lives to a world that is filled with good-hearted, genuine and generous people that have made a difference,” says Meyner. “This world still exists in Fort Worth.”

Meyner hopes “Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke” reminds readers about the goodness of mankind that seems to be forgotten in the hustle and bustle of daily life.

“Hairspray, High Heels, and Second Hand Smoke” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
