The Novice Ghost Hunter By: Martin Best

The Novice Ghost Hunter By:  Martin J. Best   It is often said that we all have a specific purpose in life.  Something which we were simply “born to do”.  Unfortunately, many people never actually figure out what that “purpose” actually is.  Whether it is due to societal pressures, life circumstances, or even an ingrained lack of self-confidence, many individuals sadly miss their calling.  At the same time however, certain people will fight through whatever may come their way to achieve their true destiny.  Displaying courage and fortitude to overcome the many obstacles which will inevitably stand in their...

Author Spotlight: Nina Romano

Author Spotlight Nina Romano 1.   What inspired you to write The Secret Language of Women? As a little girl I heard my Grandpa talk about China and how exotic it was.

When I began writing fiction, I wanted to set a novel in China during the Boxer Rebellion, the war my grandfather fought in as a sailor in the Italian Navy. I have the gift of...

Personal Mask of a Stroke Survivor By;  Anna Casamento Arrigo   Sometimes, I think, I’m clear in my explanation of what is going on in my head, how I feel, the struggles I’m facing, and the myriad emotions that, often, run amuck and find difficulty reeling them in.   After my stroke, I found, for the most part, that I wasn’t the only one who had gone through changes (some visible, some not).  It was a gradual realization, if indeed, I may call it that!  As an impatient stroke survivor, I followed directions as best I could and met...

It was supposed to be our class song for my high school senior year—class of ’88 is great!—and unfortunately it got voted out. It still represents The Class of ’88 to me, though!   Sometimes, though, I’ve been known to tweet  ‘I can’t complain, but sometimes I still do.’, and that’s the crux of today’s conundrum. Why can’t I just spend ALL MY TIME being grateful? My life is amazing, my family is completely stellar,...
