Impeachment

$16.95 Available October 15, 2020.
Billionaire industrialists Sheldon and Richard Haft are accustomed to manipulating the system to achieve their agenda, but when they decide the government isn’t serving them as well as it could, they decide to take it to the next level. Richard stumbles upon the Angels of Democracy, a group of Good Samaritans headquartered on Southern California near the Mexican border. What if the brothers take a chunk of their considerable fortune and fund the group into a paramilitary force capable of changing society?

The outcome yields chaos on the nation’s southern border, upheavals in the highest levels of government, and a new America which could not have been envisioned—except by the Haft brothers themselves.

Confessions of a Gentleman Killer

$16.95 Available October 15, 2020.
London, 1843

 

The papers call me “The Gentleman Killer.” I wrapped the throat of my first victim in a silk scarf. That’s what passes as a gentleman these days.

 

How do you reconcile a man capable of deep, tender love, a health reformer, assistant to the future British Prime Minister, and the son-in-law of a wealthy industrialist, but who kills in a blood rage? I’m told I have a philosopher’s mind, that I’m ambitious. Yet always there’s a downfall.

 

I leave judgement to you. My name is Kilcairn, and these are my confessions.

Kite to Freedom

$12.95$16.95

The Story of a Kite-Flying Contest, the Niagara Falls Suspension Bridge, and the Underground Railroad

Can a kite change history? Katie and Homan’s did.

 

When engineers were faced with the challenge of bridging the vast Niagara Gorge, the solution was a kite-flying contest. After Katie and Homan’s kite crosses the gorge and wins the contest, construction begins on the first suspension bridge to connect the United States and Canada. The two friends are there as it becomes an important link on the Underground Railroad, helping slaves escape to freedom.

 

Even as her parents try to shield her from the ugly existence of slavery and the dangers of the Underground Railroad, Katie discovers that the scary truth is closer to home than she could have imagined.

 

Kite to Freedom is an action-packed, fictionalized account of actual events that occurred during the construction of the Niagara Falls International Suspension Bridge, which still connects the United States and Canada at Niagara Falls.
