The pavilion had been built right into the water, a sala of filigree wood on a pillared platform of semi precious stone.' She was already there early the next morning when Michael arrived from Ajodhya in a tuk-tuk. She was gazing out across the water, at the finger of mist clinging to the lake. She did not look up. He wondered if she had heard him arrive. Then she blew a bubble of gum and it spattered across his nose. He laughed and she turned around. 'You teach me this trick.’ 'Ly May,' he said.'
1978. Ly May survives the fall of Saigon, living on the street and in communist camps; she survives pirates and the sinking of her flimsy rate to escape to a new life in Thailand. a flimsy raft. She is introduced to life as a bar girl in Bangkok. But Ly May is a survivor and what gets her through is the memory the pilot who befriended her in the Long Tieng air base and tried to save her life. Finally she ends up on the arm of Douglas Ho, one of the major players in the international heroin trade and number two in a Hong Kong triad. And that's when she meets her saviour again; but now he is with an American drug enforcement agency.
The stakes are excruciatingly high; the Chinese are expanding onto the US western seaboard and the potential profits are breathtaking. Douglas Ho will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Does Ly May stay with the rich life she has been so lucky to find or stay true to the man who helped her as a child and risk everything, her millionaire life and even her life? From the heroin factories of the Golden Triangle to the drug banks of California and Bangkok, from bloody gun battles in San Francisco's Chinatown to the palaces of the super rich in Hong Kong, this is a rollercoaster journey that will leave you breathless to the last page.

Considering she's a girl who calculates everything, Addie Battes knew the statistical probability of being abducted in her lifetime--too bad she never analyzed the odds of falling in love with her captor.
While stopping at a crowded rest area one summer night, seventeen-year-old Addie accidentally catches a truck hijacking in progress. Desperate to rid the crime of its only witness, one of the thieves kidnaps Addie. Yet surprisingly, when a renegade thief attempts to silence her for good, Addie is saved by the very man who abducted her. Now, forced on board a cargo ship in the middle of the ocean, Addie finds herself surrounded by international smugglers who want nothing more than to throw her overboard.
All except the artistic and intriguing Charlie Hays, whose strange protectiveness convinces Addie to trust him, even when common sense tells her otherwise. Yet, despite her doubt, and his unrelenting temper, their relationship develops into something much more. But, Charlie's scorned colleague has stowed away, and as he seeks revenge against his coworker, Addie and Charlie are forced to put their new love--and lives--at risk.

  • Women who want to shed a few extra pounds and also tone up.
  • Women who have busy work schedules, who travel a lot, stay at home moms, students, etc.
  • Women who have been training for a while and have hit a fat loss plateau.
  • Women who want to fit better into their clothes.

TESSA ON HER OWN
Double Tap to ZOOM to enlarge type
Fully Illustrated Version
Picture Book for reading with the younger child - ages 3-6
This version of TESSA ON HER OWN includes all the luminous illustrations just waiting to enchant children of any age, and especially the read-to set.
If the text-only version is better for your needs, then please click on TESSA ON HER OWN in the Text-Only Version for the serious young reader - ages 6-9.
Happy reading in either Version.
TESSA ON HER OWN will encourage young readers to take care of themselves in age-appropriate ways. It will also help develop a positive attitude toward work.
SELF-RELIANCE...WORKING TO TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES
Meet Tessa, a beautiful California red fox, and share a modern fable in praise of industry.
While her brothers and sisters learn to stalk, chase, and pounce-Tessa lies half asleep under a blackberry bush, waiting for lunch to be served.
Then one day, big brother Rex decides it is time Tessa started hunting for herself. "You can't be a lazy fox forever," he tells her.
Tessa doesn't like to be told what to do. So with her bright tail dragging in the dust, she strikes off to live on her own. Tessa soon discovers, however, that the life of a scavenger is not easy. And when she has to spend a scary night in a smelly garbage dumpster, she decides she is better off doing what foxes do naturally-hunting for dinner.
Tessa's tale takes place in the Ojai Valley of southern California's coastal mountains. From the rough chaparral of the Topa Topa bluffs to the wildflower fields and orange groves of the valley below, illustrator Itoko Maeno has recreated the beauty of one of California's most scenic locations.
And in addition to her perfect depictions of the elusive red fox, she has rendered a charming supporting cast of wildlife-playful field mice, a bossy California quail, a gruff mule deer, an unfriendly coyote, and a bandit raccoon with her laughing pups.
Author Alyssa Chase's story has the straightforward charm of a fable-a classic statement in praise of industry for today's child.
A SURPRISE and added bonus is the "Enrichment Information" which includes lots of facts about the flora and fauna of the Ojai Valley of Southern California. There are colorful facts about the Red Fox and its den, Predators, the Coyote, the California Poppy, the Deer Mouse, the Territory, Scavengers, the California Quail, and the Mule Deer. This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in interesting description.
A second big plus is the "Letter to Parents and Educators" which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story...the value of work and becoming self-reliant. So even though on the surface this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.
MAKING THE CASE FOR CHARACTER EDUCATION
If you are tired of bullying, teasing, youth violence, gangs, vandalism, drug abuse, sexual misconduct…
If you are tired of the crisis with our older youth…
If you want to help make a difference one tiny step at a time…
Then this is the eBook for your children ages 3-9.
Read WITH your children and grandchildren, discuss the concept and message…
and know that you are part of the movement sweeping America to bring back our important values by restoring character education in our homes and schools.

Seventeen-year-old Fate Floyd loves adventure -- as long as it's enjoyed from the comfort of her couch. So it's probably best she has no idea the future of the universe rests squarely on her shoulders.
Far from Earth in the deepest region of space, a colossal screw-up has unleashed terrible forces within a secret vault called the Keep. In a last ditch effort to prevent eternal chaos throughout the cosmos, the Keep's Guardian must send her successor on a desperate mission. Summoned by this complete stranger's spell, Fate's cast into a savage wonderland bound by the ancient Book of Fables to retrieve a magical object powerful enough to set everything right. And if getting chucked through a secret portal isn't traumatic enough, Fate discovers the only way out is to change the endings of the book's 8 dark fables into their mirror opposites.
Fortunately, she doesn't have to run this gauntlet alone because she meets the mysteriously familiar Finn, who's as inexplicably drawn to her as she is to him. As they endure horrors beyond imagining, Fate awakens to powers she never knew she possessed and Finn questions his very existence, while an insidious darkness changes him in frightening ways. Ultimately, Fate must confront the faceless evil concealing itself behind the eyes of her one true love or remain trapped within the Book of Fables forever.

Jack Pagan might as well be 4½ months old. He awoke in a hospital after suffering a head injury that left him dead for over 67 minutes. All of his long-term memories were destroyed. Now he has to start his life again. But his accidental flirt with death left him a special gift. In those few minutes as he fades off to sleep each night, and in those early hours of the morning as he numbly awakens... he sees them.
At first, the shadows would just stretch into strange shapes and forms. Jack thought that he was hallucinating. That his medication was playing with his vision. Then the strange shadows began to walk around, moving freely. Jack chalked it up to a brain tumor. Some disease in his cerebral cortex. Schizophrenia, even. Something he could live with.
Now these creatures are not only haunting his nights, but his days. And they have a tendency to show themselves around people who are about to die. Seeking help he turns to a psychic who gives him a very special book. A book that he was destined to find. Jack learns that the only way he will ever know about who he was, is to face his worst fears, and die . . . again.
In a series of incredible twists and turns, Jack finds out that the worlds of the living and of the dead are much closer than any of us can possibly imagine. And monsters . . . are real.
