Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00006] Wissahickon Souls, A Wissahickon Creek Story, a Novel by PJ Devlin
ISBN-13: 978-0692249109
Paperback available through Amazon, Ingram and NACSCORP
E-book available through: Amazon, Nook,iBooks,Kobo, and other e-book retailers.Wissahickon Souls is historical fiction set in the Philadelphia area in the early 19th century, and is a story of love, regret and reconciliation. The story follows the life of Claire Penniman, a free black woman born to free black parents in Philadelphia. Claire is indentured to Wissahickon Farm at the age of 6 in order to receive an education.  Claire is an unlikely but highly likable heroine, and the reader joins her on her journey toward adulthood against the alternating backdrops of Philadelphia, a rural farm, and Haiti, as each location becomes almost another character in the story. Claire’s story fills a gap in American memory that marginalizes 19th century African American lives.  This novel will appeal to readers who love to enter a time and place where they walk alongside characters they get to know as friends. Though Claire’s world defines a person by the color of his or her skin, Claire’s destiny is to bear witness to the truth that illuminates the color of souls.

E-book available through: Amazon (included in Kindle Unlimited Catalog)Chrissy Rollings has a mountain of troubles to overcome, one that would crush most other girls her age.

She was born in a small North Carolina town in 1952, into a poor but happy and loving family that always managed to scrape by each month… until the night her father died in a car crash, plunging the family into poverty.  Because North Carolina was among the states to practice eugenics – forced sterilization on thousands of people deemed “unfit” to reproduce, Chrissy’s mother is eventually forced to choose between having 14-year-old Chrissy sterilized or losing her welfare check.

It’s a decision that forever alters the lives of everyone in the family.

Freak Show_v2_6x9_bleed Freak Show Without A Tent, Swimming with Piranhas, Getting Stoned in Fiji, and other Family Vacations, by Nevin Martell
ISBN-13: 978-0615889337
Paperback available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, through the Ingram & NACSCORP catalogs, and in the Washington DC area at Trohv.
E-book available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble,iBooks,Kobo and other major retailers

Fishing for piranhas in the Amazon, getting stoned at Fijian kava ceremonies, and witnessing the ancient ritual of land diving on Pentecost Island is the stuff of National Geographic cover stories – and Nevin Martell’s childhood vacations. His family’s globetrotting took them from the South Pacific to South America and many points nowhere in-between. 
Though their lifestyle choices were eccentric, the locations they visited exotic, and the people they met extraordinary, these escapades are firmly grounded in the trials, tribulations, and tribal rivalries that plague all families. Freak Show Without a Tent is a grandly hilarious memoir-misadventure that is equal parts National Lampoon’s Vacation, Romancing the Stone and Crocodile Dundee. 
Woven seamlessly into the stories of exploring the far side of the far side, near death experiences and gastronomical catastrophes is the story of a young boy coming of age, the evolving relationship between a father and son, and a family discovering its own boundaries. With the honesty and innocence that can only come through the eyes of youth, Martell reveals the symbiosis of interdependence and independence that exist deep within both rainforests and families. 
To paraphrase a family motto: buy the ticket, take the ride, and hope you survive, so that you can tell your therapist all about it.

Author Jenny Fiore did not give birth to her baby in a sacred glacial lake. She failed in the art of cloth-diaper origami.

Welcome to the Mommylands, where all mothers go in the years beyond the birthing suite. Through contemplative essays, tongue-in-cheek screenplay excerpts, and saucily imagined correspondence, Fiore shares her hilarious and poignant experiences as a freshly minted mother in today’s world of how-to manuals and helicopter parenting. This is life after birth.
