It’s April 19, 1775, and young Benjamin Morris is at the crossroads of his life. His privileged life will soon be turned upside down with the first shots fired at Lexington and Concord and the start of the American War of Independence. All must choose sides. Does he stay loyal to his Tory family and the King of England, or throw his lot in with the patriots? From that spring day Benjamin will become a soldier, fighting for freedom for his country. But the tides of war soon turn and he finds himself a spy, with a death sentence over his head. Someone set him up and now Washington’s men are chasing him through the New England countryside to Philadelphia where the Continental Congress is meeting. He knows that those chasing him not only want him dead, they are on a separate mission; to assassinate one of the patriot’s most influential men. Will Benjamin get to Philadelphia first and warn the patriot leaders? If not, then the history of America will be changed for ever!

Life In the Key of Greek: Stories From the Greek-Stake

ASIN: B06XTDZM5Y

Everyone is familiar with the Greek towns in Astoria, Detroit, Chicago, or Danforth Street in Toronto, but Philadelphia and the surrounding area, especially Upper Darby, otherwise known as "Mikri Ellada," is also rich with history, not only of America’s founding, but of the Greeks and their American experience – some good, some bad, but uniquely us. Where else could you get a Philly cheesesteak with a side of spanakopita and hear someone yell out, “Yo” and “Yia’sou,” at the same time! 

Some families can trace their roots back a few decades, and others as far back as medieval England. Some families are descendant of the maharajas of old India, and others are descendants of simple, poor farmers in Africa or Asia. David Alpheus’ family is different. He can trace his family back further, much further than anyone else and he’s about to reveal to his great-grandson, Edward, just how far the family can be traced, beyond Edward's imagination. 

There are gates around the world that lead to Hell, even one close by. Every generation, from the ancient times to the modern eras have believed in them, and one must remember, whatever can enter these entry ways into the infernal regions below, can also come back out. Two couples, John and Holly Billings, and Josh and Jessica McKenzie, search for the ultimate haunted hayride and find one at Milford Grove Farms in picturesque Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It's one of the best in the country, but sometimes too much of a good time is not always good, and when you think its ended and time to leave, that's when the real ride begins.

The Hayride

ISBN-10: 1976931819

Missolonghi. I’m sure you are having difficulty pronouncing the name of this small town, let alone ever having heard of this place, located in the western part of Greece, and to the rest of the world, no one had any idea that this little place on earth even existed… until 1825. A few years earlier, the Greeks declared their independence from the Ottoman Empire and the Greeks, together with others from the free countries of the world, came to Missolonghi to fight the Turk. Some fought to protect their families and community, others to defend their Greek Orthodox faith, but all, to fight for a free Greece. They were willing to die for all that.
I know. I was there. 
I was at the siege of Missolonghi.
I, too, was ready to die for Greece… and for my Maria.
