My book is a children's picture book i did with my son. I wrote the stories and he provided the artwork. It has four different parts to it. I grew up a believer so two of the books are centered around Christ but i never force my opinions on anyone with the books as i do respect the fact that peoples beliefs are truly up to them. My son gave each part a different style and even had one of them in comic book format to shake up the look a bit.
This is my latest Italian novel.
It's about the diary of a girl, called Elisabetta, who lives in Arezzo, a Tuscan city. She wants to become a lawyer, but she needs money to study and to live together with her boyfriend. So, she begins to work as a waitress in a bar and cake shop .... Her work, her friendships, her life will change, as many events will happen unexpectedly in the amazing landscape of Arezzo ...
Funny, ironic, thirilling and romantic, the novel has all the colours of real life.
The city of Haven has for centuries been guarded over by the seraphim. Known as the Hand of God, only a single seraph stands sentry at a time. Uriel, the tenth Hand of God, is an unruly brute who abuses the privileges of his rank, a fact known all too well by his Attendant. But what the Attendant doesn’t know is that Uriel’s unruliness stems from knowledge the seraph has for years held secret…
“What is beyond that must be sealed away in such a manner?”
Uriel turned to me and, ignoring my question, asked: “You believe the Archangel Michael descended from Heaven to perform God’s bidding?”
“Yes,” I said, drawing back. “Yes, of course I do.” I had believed it, although all that Uriel had told me that night was beginning to bring doubt to all aspects of our religion. I was beginning to doubt everything that had been taught and told to me in my entire life.
“You believe he was a holy being, then. One of God’s own children?”
“Yes. Uriel, what—”
He held up a hand, palm outward, to silence me.
“Aside from our wings,” he went on, “you believe there is a more profound difference between your kind and mine? Between humans and the seraphim. Something, shall we say, supernatural?”
The year is 1981. The small California town of Beaumont is rocked by a series of seemingly random -and increasingly violent- murders. An aging detective tries to capture the elusive killer- but with so few clues, can anyone stop the killing?
A beautiful young woman, Aphra Devereaux leaves Paris after the death of her father to live in the mansion that was her deceased sister, Lady Freya Fitzroy’s home. She finds the once grand Stoneleigh is now a gloomy, decaying mansion. Additionally her sister’s husband Sir Roland is now a deranged drug addict. To her surprise she finds her sister’s neglected child of whose existence she was unaware. Also a woman of dubious character appears to be managing Roland’s life. The only hope she has is Roland’s brother Edmund but he is away fighting in the Crimea. The society background of her young life has not conditioned her for what she experiences at Stoneleigh or the filth and lowlife of the London streets and the hypocritical upper class London Society.
Almost everyone knows, or thought that they knew, that Henry VIII had six wives and every school child remembers; divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded and survived.
Fewer people know that he had at least ten or eleven mistresses and at least 4 or 5 illegitimate children but probably more. He also had many more children that did not survive infancy – a not uncommon occurrence in Tudor times. He had at least 10 by his first three wives alone.
How different our history would have been if one of these had survived, been male and legitimate and became King Henry the IXth.
What hardly anyone knows is that he actually married one of his mistresses in 1538 so in fact the school yard rhyme should read ; divorced, beheaded, died, murdered, divorced, beheaded and survived
Hi all, just a quick word to let you know that my first novel is currently reduced to only .99c or 77p in the UK as I am looking for reviews/feedback. It's a murder mystery set in 1745 in the Scottish capital Edinburgh and hopefully will satisfy your need for historical crime fiction. It was $2.99 so you're saving yourself a couple of bucks. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007B2SG74
