Rebecca Scarberry was born in Southern California. She retired as a claims analyst for an HMO in Las Vegas, Nevada. She lives on a very secluded non-working farm in the Boston Mountains of Arkansas with her husband and five cats. She has devoted her time to writing fiction since 2009 and has self-published works in four different genres.
She published her debut, Messages from Henry in June 2012. It was written for young adults but many adults are finding it very entertaining. The sequel, Where Love Takes You, was published in August 2013. On December 10, 2012, she published a short story called, Rag Doll. This very short story is for adults only. It’s a spicy crime drama, and many readers were taken by surprise by the twist in the end. She’s now being compared to O’Henry. She has since published three children's picture books. It's called her Jumper series, about a funny red beach ball; telling the readers all about his adventures away from the toy store. Children, age 4 and up, want Jumper on TV. She has currently written the script for one episode and will attempt to make this a reality.
All of her books can be purchased on Amazon and elsewhere.

My having grown up with a sister with schizophrenia and also suffering from her own Jesus complex; I could relate to this well written, fascinating short story. I love Thea's style of writing and this short story being written in first person, present tense, made it especially enjoyable.I look forward to reading a full-length novel by Thea Atkinson. I highly recommend this short story.

We have all grown up with at least one parent against one of our friends. Well, Kyle was no different. His friendship with Briana infuriated his father, but Kyle was determined to help her no matter what. I haven't read a book written for young adults this good since I reached adulthood. I could feel Briana's pain, see the green water and see her eyes glow. Just loved the end and look forward to the sequel. Mike, you really know how to capture a reader's attention and keep it. Well done! ~Rebecca Scarberry

I absolutely love series. I feel this first book of the series is perfect. I can't wait to find out if Elaine will follow through with her plans and what will happen to Nick. I also agree with one other person's praise; the settings are brought to life and the characters are realistic. Like Elaine, all of us ladies have fallen for at least one of our attractive bosses at some point in time. I am totally hooked and thoroughly enjoy your style of writing Mike.

I was very touched by this true story. Even though the story is sad, Rob Guthrie has written this in an almost poetic fashion. My sister lost her two sons to illness when they were in their 40's. Her grief turned to fear also. I have never lost a child, but I know my sister will never be the same.

BEYOND TRUE LOVE
The first novel I read by Micheal Rivers was The Black Witch, a very fast paced book. Mr. Rivers told me to expect a much slower pace when reading this one. I have been reading one fast paced book after another and it was so nice to read this one where I could relax and enjoy the characters and Mr. Rivers’ beautiful style of writing.
Edward Caulfield truly did live his life as a shrine to his deceased wife, Celia. I especially liked Edward’s live-in companion/caregiver, Betty. The way he liked to tease her was humorous. Betty cared about Edward very much and at times she seemed to know more about him than he knew about himself.
Although Edward wanted to die and join Celia, he continued to be a caring man. He becomes friends with a younger woman, Lena and the stories they shared were both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Lena was very troubled and thankful to have Edward to talk to.
This story proved to me Mr. Rivers can write a love story and does it well.
I love ghost stories; therefore the paranormal element of this novel was especially pleasing.
I highly recommend you read this story that goes beyond true love.

WHIRLWIND OF A LIFE!
I thoroughly enjoyed this true story. I highly recommend you read it!
What happened to David Perlmutter is a perfect example of how one tiny decision can dictate the balance of our lives.
I have never been falsely accused of any crimes. It would be horrible. I truly hope Mr. Perlmutter is living a normal, happy life now. I'm not certain I would be normal after going through what he has.
Thank you, Mr. Perlmutter for sharing your story with us. I like the way you wrote this story and I think you should consider writing more books.

I loved this collection of poetry SO MUCH! I love nature and children, so I really enjoyed them.
Normally, when I write a review for a collection of poems, I mention a favorite. I loved these so much, I simply can't pick a favorite this time.
I hope Gary Henry will publish more poems, for all of us to enjoy.

I’m an author of four different genres and I’m now learning to write poetry. I love this collection of poetry so much and want to thank all of the authors for pulling together and publishing such a wonderful collection. I’ll be reading these poems over and over and hope one day I can come close to writing this well.
I strongly encourage all readers to read these poems aloud. For some reason, poetry is so much better read aloud.
I don’t want any of the authors of these beautifully written poems to feel slighted in any way for my not mentioning them here. Once I started reading this collection, I started a list of those I loved. Well, I soon gave that up for the list was getting too long. I decided to read on and wait for one to dazzle me beyond belief. The poem to dazzle me is ‘The Sun and Sea’ by Ollie Lambert. The next poem to dazzle me was ‘A Witches Downfall’ by Oscar Wager II. Regina Puckett’s poems are whimsical and charming and I commend her on the cover. Very nice.
Highly recommended!! I’ll be rereading this collection for years.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this wonderful collection of short stories as I sat in my home office on a snowy day. Now I’m definitely in the mood for the holidays.
I’ve read books by two of the asmsg authors before and enjoyed their writing. Now I want to read books by all of the others. Very well done and the title is perfect.
Being an author myself, I know how hard it is to write short stories. Many readers don’t realize this until they try it.
Many of the stories brought back childhood memories of the holidays. I found them to be uplifting and heartwarming. I highly recommend that you read this collection. I’ll be thinking about many of them on Christmas day.
