Merriam Press Historical Fiction HF14 (First Edition, 2015). Vietnam produced a generation of stories as complicated and unsettling as the jungles in which it was fought. As the years have passed, hard truths have emerged. Reluctant but Ready reveals an until-now classified account of the fight that happened in back alleys, muddy outposts, secret warehouses with firing ranges and replica towns and in the skies above the fray. Mark Masters is a young man from a small town in West Virginia, filled with optimism and a love of God, family and country, who joins the Navy intent on doing his part to make America safe. He is reluctant but ready to defend the greatest nation in the world from the insidious threat of communism. The powers that be quickly learn that Masters is a gifted killer and steer him to the covert side of war, honing his skills and asking for more than he knew he had to give. The time has come to tell his story, to shed light on this murky subject and acknowledge many honorable and unsung heroes.

We realized, as we grew older that these were true stories of a great adventure he had experienced. This book is a historical novel based on the true story of a young deserter from the British Army during the little known Allied Intervention into Russia and Siberia after the Russian Revolution, during 1918 and 1919.

This novel is based on the life of pirate John Gow who features as Captain Cleveland. The setting is the southern tip of the main island of Shetland (which Scott visited in 1814), around 1700. The arrival of the shipwrecked captain, Cleveland, spoils young Mordaunt's relationship with the Troil girls, and soon a bitter rivalry grows between the two men. Minna falls in love with Cleveland, not knowing his true profession. Brenda, however, is in love with Mordaunt. The pirates capture the Troils, but after an encounter with the frigate HMS Halcyon, they are freed… Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet. He was the first modern English-language author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, with many contemporary readers in Europe, Australia, and North America. His novels and poetry are still read, and many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature. Famous titles include Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor.

Benedictus is a love story of both divine and human dimensions. The story of the nun is also the story of Joseph, her psychologist. It was a labyrinthian path that brought the two together in a surprising and courageous love that changed both their lives. Twenty years of conflict over her vocation had taken Sister Anne into a void whose depths of darkness became what she called a place of Nothing. She always believed that someone would come to help her and someone did but not as she had imagined and not in a way that the world would easily accept. It would take someone like Joseph, who was willing to risk all things professionally and personally, to pull her out of that void. Sister Annes risk was no less; she had to hold on and meet him every step of the way. No door would be left unopened, sparing her nothing. She walked through them all, and when the last door closed behind her, Sister Anne knew a choice had to be made.
