The Devil's Name is George


Confessions of a Public Education Teacher


by Derek Stooks

Gold Hunters: Lure of the Superstitions


A student standing on a wall threatening to moon the school, while simul-taneously flipping the bird to approaching police officers. A boy who quotes verbatim “R” rated films while running around the room half-naked. Back-and-forth banter where kids insult each other (on purpose) for the sake of memorizing good “comebacks”. A loner whose mom locked him out of the house to teach him a lesson, and his attempt to jump off a roof to teach her one. On that first, innocent, and fateful day, as he stepped into the mire of public education, these were not the stories that Derek Stooks imagined he would eventually tell. What he discovered was that it was the student’s words, actions, tears and yes, their craziness that would ultimately impact his life in profound ways. Take a front row seat on this hilarious journey through the beginnings of a career in Special Education, where the stories are too unbelievable to be anything but true. Then join him as he makes the transition into teaching General Education, learning the “ups and downs” of dealing with a system in which the cards are inevitably stacked against you.

About the Author
DEREK STOOKS graduated from Arizona State University with a dual Master’s Degree in Special and General Education. He was always comfortable speaking, training and performing in front of people and knew that these skills would be an asset for a great teacher. He enjoyed the memories that it brought him and hopes that he has created many more for his students.

And just when his finances bottom out, like his personal life, he receives an unusual offer. A chance to find an undiscovered treasure of Gold, a treasure that could be nothing more than a legend. But, to even have a chance, Nick will have to overcome the heat of the desert, Indian Spirits, guardians of the Church, government agents, and ruthless drug dealers. He’ll have to put together a trusted team to help him in his search. Along the way, he’ll delve deep into Native American Spirituality, and confront issues he was unprepared for, such as reincarnation, and Soulmates. His search could change his life forever, and uncover a secret the church has been hiding for centuries.

More Than Money

More Than Money


by Diana Fountain Smith

Love,Lisa


‘Life can change in the blink of an eye’ is an old cliché but in Peri Walker’s life, the cliché became spot-on. Having money was new to her; not only did it affect her life, but that of the people she loved, and those she didn’t. Life was about to throw her a curve.
Giselle Carlentini is a powerful, wealthy business woman who needed to instigate a plan when ’life changed in a blink of an eye’ for her. Peri Walker figured prominently in that plan. Time was against her. She prayed for time to complete her plan.
When fate stepped in, Peri and Giselle did not get a chance to commiserate about the changes in their lives together. But they definitely had someone in common, a very mysterious gentleman who means more to them than money ever would.

The Dream Power Journal

The Dream Power Journal


by Cynthia Richmond



Based on over 20 years of expe­ri­ence as a dream an­a­lyst and having read and worked with more than 55,000 dreams, Cynthia Richmond has cre­ated the per­fect system for getting the most val­ue from our dreams. Our nightly dramas offer guid­ance, in­spiration and perspective that can increase the quality of our waking lives. Howev­er they are most of­ten fleeting, dis­solving as we wake each day. Taking a few mo­ments to jot them down is essential to dreamwork. Fol­lowing the guid­ance of our dreams can enhance our relation­ships, ca­reer, hobbies, health and spiritual growth. This journal makes it easy to decode the language of dreams. It shows the read­er how to incubate dreams for prob­lem solving and for in­tentional purposes.

The Dream Power Journal is the first ev­er to include a Dream Log, a place where the dream­er gives each dream a rel­evant ti­tle and writes it down with the date and appropriate page number. This al­lows him or her to eas­ily cross-ref­er­ence similarly themed dreams. Compar­ing and con­trast­ing dreams with the

same symbols or actions can greatly enhance the under­standing of their meanings. All ar­eas of life have ben­efitted from the in­spiration of nocturnal dramas, medicine, sci­ence, the arts, sports, lit­era­ture, re­ligion, spirituality and phi­los­ophy included. Cynthia Richmond was called: "One of the country's foremost au­thor­ities on dreams and their meanings." by Entertain­ment Tonight and by Gayle King on the Oprah Sirius XM Ra­dio Network. Her book Dream Power, How to Use Your Night Dreams to Change Your Life was pub­lished by Si­mon & Schus­ter in 2001. She had long running columns in the Los An­ge­les Times and the Arizona Re­public. Beautiful and easy to use, the Dream Power Journal includes a dictio­nary of some of the most common dream symbols and their generally accepted meanings. It is a must-have for ev­ery per­son who wants to enhance the quality of their life while gleaning the guid­ance from their own subconscious mind and their spirit.
