Three lives. One man.
Christopher Marlowe was the first rock star poet, a spy, an atheist, a gay rebel whose controversial plays thrilled audiences and challenged the government.
CHRISTOPHER WILD is Kathe Koja’s new novel, a daring remix of eras—the glitter and threat of Elizabethan England, a grimy mid-20th century, and a dark near-future of constant surveillance—as Marlowe loves and fights and writes his way through every dangerous age.

KATHE KOJA’s books include Under the Poppy, The Bastards’ Paradise, The Cipher and Skin; her young adult novels include Buddha Boy, Talk and Kissing the Bee. Her work has been honored by the ALA, the ASPCA and with the Bram Stoker Award. Her books have been published in seven languages and optioned for film. She’s a Detroit native and lives in the area with her husband, artist Rick Lieder. She also runs Loudermilk Productions, creating site-specific immersive events including performances of Faustus and her own adaptation of Under the Poppy.

Henry had warned her. “If you go to Cairo, you might get yourself killed, Isabel.”
But what choice does she have? She has to search for Sean, her missing husband, and she’s found out that a hospital in Cairo treated an American patient recently, who had been brought to the city from Germany. But she’s arrived at the wrong moment. A mass uprising is being crushed in Tahrir Square. The next day, an Egyptian billionaire announces a spectacular discovery at the Great Pyramid of Giza. Isabel goes to meet him. She’s been told he might help her.
Driven by desperation, she ends up deep in the desert, at a camp run by the Muslim Brotherhood. They kill her driver, and ask her to carry out one simple task. They will lead her to Sean if she does it. But what they are asking goes against everything she believes in.
The Great Pyramid of Giza hides the final part of the puzzle that Isabel and Sean have been unraveling since they encountered it in Istanbul. In a fabled hall, assumed by most to be an ancient myth, Isabel discovers the truth about what lies beneath the Great Pyramid, and what really happened to her husband.

Healing The Scars of Childhood Abuse

, ,


The deep pain of childhood abuse–whether physical or emotional, whether a child was neglected or wished nothing more than to be left alone–doesn’t just go away. There’s simply no just getting over it. Even if no physical scars remain as evidence of the victim’s suffering, the deep wounds on their minds, hearts, and souls are still there. But it is possible to become whole and happy.
Author of the successful Healing the Scars of Emotional Abuse, Dr. Gregory Jantz now helps readers understand the effects of childhood abuse on their emotional, intellectual, physical, relational, and spiritual health. He then outlines the steps to lasting healing, including grieving what was lost, learning to balance emotions with intentionality, regaining a positive relationship with one’s own body and mind, and coming to an understanding of God not as a frightening authority figure like the abuser or an accusing judge, but as a loving creator, redeemer, and friend.

Wyatt is more than happy to play the hot-and-heavy boyfriend. But what begins as a fictional affair soon develops into something more real, and more passionate, than either Sutton or Wyatt could have imagined. Could it be that true love has been waiting under the hood all along?

How I Talk To Horses

, , ,

Fourteen years ago I bought Missy. She was incredible, had a bad attitude and she hated me. I immediately decided, buying Missy was the stupidest thing I’d ever done, until she talked to me. Missy first talked when she really wanted something, tried to get it herself and failed. In frustration, she turned to me and asked me to get it for her. When she asked, she said it clearly, in complete sentences. She was surprised that I understood and got it for her. I was amazed that she asked so clearly. I’ve paid attention ever since. Now, Missy talks all the time. Once I got more horses, I realized, they all talk. If we don’t notice, horses give up and don’t try to talk to us anymore. We can learn how horses think, processes information and talk.

I reject the term, “Breaking Horses”. I don’t want broken horses, so I don’t break them. I want spirited, intelligent, engaged horses. Breaking horses makes them anxious and reactive. Its archaic thinking, like controlling a wife was in the 50’s. This book explains how I lead, with respect, between me and my horses, as their leader. My horses trust me to lead. Yours will too.

This book explains….

– How I talk to horses. How anyone can, if you learn how horses think and speak.
– How to earn your respected position in their herd, as their Leader.
– How to fix incorrect or ill behavior, by telling them, “Wrong answer. Find a better answer.” How to show your horse what you want, have them trust you, become brave, and try.
– How to become confi dent and share that confidence with your horse, without arrogance. How to interpret what your horse is saying, by what your horse is showing you.
– How to help an abused horse overcome PTSD, learn to trust and feel safe with you.
– How to turn a reactive brain off, turn their thinking brain on, so they can respond and not react. How to read your horse’s ears, because ears say as much as their eyes say.
– How to approach a horse, who sees you with one eye, ask them for two eyes, and why it matters. How a horse’s brain is different than a human’s and what that means while you work with them.

”May your Horse ‘want to’ be with you”

Margo’s an Author, Horse Trainer & Spotted Saddle Horse Breeder, Musician and Screenwriter in Tennessee, with eight horses, a bunch of goats, two dogs, and one really bossy cat.

Death at the President’s Lodging

The crime was at once intriguing and bizarre, efficient and theatrical.
The members of St Anthony’s College awake one bleak November morning to find the most chilling of crimes has happened in their quiet, contained college. Josiah Umpleby, President of the college, has been shot in his room during the night.
The college buzzes with supposition and speculation. Orchard Ground and the lodgings are particularly insulated: only a limited number of senior staff have access and even fewer have their own keys.
With the killer walking among them, Inspector John Appleby of the New Scotland Yard is called in to investigate. As tensions rise and accusations abound, can Appleby determine which of the seven suspects had motive and malice enough to murder a colleague in cold blood?
