Launching READ for Rachel Campaign
Rachel is a 13 y/o young lady who suffered severe side-effects from the HPV vaccine shot. Proceeds will go directly to Rachel to help her fight for her life.
When I decided to re-launch my novel a friend asked me why I am giving away my work. This was not a hard decision for me. When my son, Brad, was 6 years old, doctors nearly killed him with medication that caused severe side-effects. Many guardian angels came to his rescue and saved his life. Strangers I didn't know, but who cared deeply about my son. I owe them more than I can ever repay. I hope to be one of Rachel's guardian angels, and I hope you join me.
Purchase a book for Rachel, and then pass the ... read more

A Love Supreme
A Love Supreme may seem an unlikely title for a football magazine. Rather than try and explain it we'll leave you to consider the following passage. "True supporters care. They care enough to argue vehemently but often perceptively about the team, the players, the issues; they care enough to commit themselves to the cause of the club; they care enough to turn up week after week to support the team; they care enough to criticise, among themselves, their own players. The opposite of love, after all, is not hate, but indifference.”

Lee was born in 1982 in Rochford, Essex and lived on the outskirts of the village of Canewdon.
At the age of six she moved to West Yorkshire with her parents, elder sister and younger brother, where they owned and ran a dairy farm. Due to the egg crisis of 1991 the farm and business was lost and Lee, with her family, was housed in Sowerby Village, with other ex-farmers, redundant miners and former military families.
It was at Newland Junior School, that Hazel Hellowell first spotted Lee had a talent for creative writing and encourage her poetry, resulting in the local paper publishing her first poem: Weeping Willow at the age of 10.

I, like most people enjoy talking about myself, it can very well be a journey into self-discovery. But this is not fiction, and I am having a difficult time finding my flow to explain who I am.
I was always weird and different; I could see and feel things in a way that was totally different to others. Not on a huge level but more than enough to know there was so much more going on than we could perceive. I always had a deep desire, like a fire burning in my soul, to learn more about the important things of life. I was always looking for answers, exploring everything metaphysical that I could get my hands on. I still remember fondly the glorious times sitting on the floor of the different libraries engrossed in ... read more

Kevin Leu REALLY did finish in 3rd place at the 5th grade Science Fair at Sam Houston Elementary. Call them. Ask them if they keep records from 1989. He invented a solar-powered flag pole that would allow the flag to raise itself each morning, rather than have someone manually lower it each night and raise it each morning. It's genius. He still has a patent pending and is waiting for the royalties to come pouring in so that he can swim in gold coins like Scrooge McDuck.
