The classic and much-loved memoir by Hannah Hauxwell about life in remote Yorkshire in the 1970s. Hannah Hauxwell first came to the nation's attention on Yorkshire television's award-winning documentary TOO LONG A WINTER, when she captured the hearts and imaginations of millions who were captivated by her ability to single-handedly run her family's farm in an isolated area in Yorkshire. Since the age of 35, following the deaths of her parents and uncle, she lived a self-sufficient life without electricity or running water at Low Birk Hatt Farm. What most enchanted people about Hannah was that she survived sixty years of gruelling work and weather with unimpaired serenity and good humour. Her love of the countryside, her passion for animals and her appreciation of the right values make Hannah a remarkable woman and in this classic book she tells her unique and inspiring story. SEASONS OF MY LIFE is an enduring and affectionate look at rural life in a world where everything is changing.
My life seems to have now come full circle. The people in our lives that come and go-never seem to leave mine for good. (And I consider this a blessing!) My closest girl friend was the lead singer in my ex-husband's Christian rock band.

Structure time form and proper scales are dead here. This is the place that jazz progresses. 52nd Street is stale and lifeless. The bridge to 52nd Street has been burned down. This is Improvisational Writing. It lives through every typo misspelling misuse and grammatical mistake. It is music without sound. Without measures. Without Scales. Without time. Without prisons.

Category: Juvenile Fiction
It is autumn of 1985 and fifteen year-old Jessica Thurwell, a budding musician, Beatles fanatic, and hopeless romantic, is starting her new life at the small, prestigious Fieldings Academy. Away from the glare of her mother's soap star celebrity and the sprawling confusion of her suburban high school, Jess hopes to shed her mousy, friendless persona. When the charismatic and seemingly popular senior, Perry Wagner, takes Jess under her wing and makes her a part of her tight-knit clique of friends, Jess can't believe her luck. But soon she discovers the sacrifices and hard work involved in staying in the girls' good graces when she is thrust into a world where not only her new friends could care less about her music and passion for the Beatles, but also where drugs, manipulation, and back stabbing are par for the course and more complex than any plot on her mother's soap. Things aren't made any easier when Jess finds she has developed a crush on Perry's hunky and overly flirtatious boyfriend Marcus. As she tries to escape the clutches of the clique, she realizes it's going to be a lot tougher than she thought. And then a tragic event shockingly unfolds late in the year, forcing Jess to come face to face with the reality of the world she wanted so much to be a part of.

Author: Kaya Kamins
After the break up of a long distance relationship, Kaya began to write from the depths of her soul while struggling to become empowered and grounded in her own life. Who I had become was someone I didnt really know. This woman didnt fit the stereotypes I had grown up with. I had not been raised to have a voice, nor to know my truth. When I began to write, floodgates began to open. I developed a new clarity about my emotions. This replaced the space in my heart and life where there was once only confusion and uncertainty. As I began to write and share my words with other women, I developed more courage and began to overcome my fears about creating my own unique path to follow. Kayas poems about her journey of self-discovery and transformation at midlife have common themes for all women struggling to give birth to their own voice.

Seasons come and go, but Wynter seemed to leave too soon. When Jonathan Pitts took his wife of 15 years into his arms for their anniversary dance, he had no idea that within a month he would be on a completely different journey, navigating life after Wynter's sudden death at the age of 38. One moment he was married to a successful author and magazine publisher, and putting the finishing touches on their book about marriage. The next he was a widower and a single father of four grieving daughters. Without warning, the future his family had planned together dissolved, leaving Jonathan trying to answer the question that echoed through his daughters’ hearts and his own: How could a loving God allow this unspeakable loss? My Wynter Season is Jonathan’s story of losing the most wonderful gift he had ever been given and his journey toward understanding life without her. Yet in the wilderness of his grief, Jonathan found himself surrounded by God’s extravagant love, and came to truly understand Christ’s life-giving promise that death is not the end.

"Before the Monkeys Came" is a 2001 winner in the Writers Digest Self-published Book Awards, Literary/Mainstream category. Frank watches as his friends are drafted to fight a war no one believes in, or he helps them escape to Canada when their student deferments expire to avoid serving in the rock and roll war. Never having to chose, being forever 4-F (unfit for military service) has robbed him of the chance to make his own political statement. Frank was born with hemophilia, a hereditary disease passed from mother to son. His blood doesnt clot normally, so even a minor bump to a knee or elbow joint often becomes a serious bleed, ultimately causing crippling, muscle atrophy and extreme episodes of intense pain. As a child frequent hospital stays were the norm, and missed school routine. The needles, transfusions and traction are the only therapies being preformed in the fifties and early sixties when the average life expectancy of a boy with hemophilia was fifteen. With the first significant advances in cryo-precipitate (clotting factor removed from whole blood, spun in a centrifuge and frozen for later IV injection.) the first real help arrives by the mid-sixties. Later came Factor VIII, manufactured from whole blood from blood banks like the Red Cross, and the technology for quick intravenous treatment that worked significantly better than anything that came before, promises a more normal life for those born later than Frank and the other men already significantly impaired. But Franks crippling is stabilized by Factor VIII and he finally sees hope. The comes 1976, the bicentennial year and the year of AIDS. Drug companies poor quality control and the FDAs lack of oversight allows millions of contaminated blood to be processed into Factor VIII and other blood products and distributed to the hemophilia community without regard to the possible infections it could cause. Not warned until 1985, eighty to ninety percent of hemophiliacs who infused Factor VIII during those years becomes HIV positive. A third of them would die of full blown AIDS within a year, hundreds of spouses will be infected, and their children before the spread is controlled. Franks story is only one of thousands of people caught in this terrible web. The treatment that once held such hope and promise for a healthier life, becomes worse than the disease it tried to help. Frank faces heartbreak, loss, new injuries and further crippling as he tries to face down his demons and find a way just to

This is a novel about a young African American brother and his family who experienced many problems in life. This novel is fiction, and it is not factual in any way form or fashion. I had a hard life growing up as an African American male, but this novel does not tell any true story. It is fictional—for entertainment purposes only. I am writing this book so people could have hope. I truly believe sometimes in this life many of us are doomed by bad fate. Because of trials and tribulations, we lose our faith in God. We end up believing a change will never come. I hope this novel will inspire you to never give up on your dreams or anything you want in life. This novel is dedicated to my dear and departed mother, Catherine Miller. She was my hero. I have been inspired by many people, such as the Jackson singing family, John H. Johnson, Tyler Perry, E. Lynn Harris, Langston Hughes, Paul Robeson, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X., Les Brown, and Denzel Washington. A special thanks to Lois Britton and Devell Porter, who are dear friends of mine. I hope you will enjoy When My Season Comes.
