Never one to color inside the lines, the brilliant inventor Carl Collingwood is positive that his new aircraft will trigger waves of influence worldwide, changing the course of aeronautics forever. Investigative journalist Juli Gables is granted exclusive rights to cover the first flight of Collingwood’s groundbreaking aircraft. But when the plane inexplicably crashes and kills its creator, Gables finds herself witness, and reporter, to a tragic story. Using her investigative skills and sharp observations, Gables resolves to unearth the cause of the crash for the sake of Collingwood’s widow. She learns that it was not a mechanical malfunction that killed Collingwood; someone wanted him dead. With her newfound knowledge, Gables may be in danger, too—especially when this investigation leads her all the way to the White House. As she attempts to get closer to the truth, Gables is dogged at every step by disruptive parties, including the police and fellow reporters. As her investigation continues, she uncovers a plot to assassinate the President of the United States when he is scheduled to give a speech at the United States Military Academy at West Point. When authorities do not listen to her as she voices her claims, it seems as if Gables will have to take matters into her own hands in order to prevent imminent tragedy.

A young boy is found abandoned in the deep jungle of South Vietnam by an American Patrol. He is taken back to the soldiers' base and eventually moves to an old French-operated orphanage. U.S. Army Captain and Pilot Steve Armanski falls in love with the boy and wants to take him back home to the U.S. Many obstacles stand in the way, including the fact that there is no legal way to do it. Hence a plan is born. But the plan fails and in a last-ditch effort, a way is found to get the boy to the states. Along the way, the story of the day-to-day missions of a group of Bird Dog (O-1) pilots is told. This novel takes place in 1968 and tells of the softer side of the Vietnam War. It also shows that the whole story has yet to be told. Recon Airplane Company: III Corps, Vietnam portrays a U.S. soldier as not a mean-spirited warrior, but as a compassionate human being who wanted to help. Saving the young boy becomes his obsession. T. Van Ewell was an Army pilot serving in Vietnam, and later worked for the Pentagon and White House. He is currently a Challenger jet pilot flying contract flights. "My latest gig took me in and out of Mogadishu, Somalia, where I had a close encounter with a couple of predator drones."

Corliss Myers is the kind of girl who watches TV. (Alone. On prom night.) Not the kind who works in it. So imagine her excitement when her uncle gets her an internship on a TV show called The ‘Bu. Little does Corliss realize that this internship is nothing like what she’d expected. Soon she’s administering to the producer’s mammoth ego, keeping bed watch on the boozy starlet, and intercepting a burgeoning romance between two of the mega-hot, mega-hormonally compromised leads. And while all this is taking place, someone—we’re not yet sure who or why—is busy keeping the blogosphere up to date with The ‘Bu Hoo, a scandalous, unauthorized, behind-the-scenes look at the making of The ‘Bu.

When the Ku Klux Klan’s unwelcome reappearance rattles Stella’s segregated southern town, bravery battles prejudice in this New York Times bestselling Depression-era “novel that soars” (The New York Times Book Review) that School Library Journal called “storytelling at its finest” in a starred review. Stella lives in the segregated South—in Bumblebee, North Carolina, to be exact about it. Some stores she can go into. Some stores she can’t. Some folks are right pleasant. Others are a lot less so. To Stella, it sort of evens out, and heck, the Klan hasn’t bothered them for years. But one late night, later than she should ever be up, much less wandering around outside, Stella and her little brother see something they’re never supposed to see, something that is the first flicker of change to come, unwelcome change by any stretch of the imagination. As Stella’s community—her world—is upended, she decides to fight fire with fire. And she learns that ashes don’t necessarily signify an end.

TIME AFTER TIME To save his people, Navajo medicine man Benjamin Two Eagles poured his soul into an ancient amulet. For over one hundred years he had been lost in time, until a beautiful woman set him free into a world he did not understand.

But Benjamin's quest to avenge the wrongs done to his people went against every law she'd sworn to uphold. Could they find a way to let justice be done before another grain of sand dropped in time's hourglass and Benjamin was forced to once again walk through time?
