Jan Fink’s stories are drawn from her life experiences and the people she has met along the way. She allows her characters to channel their stories in their own voices. Stories that involve what it is to be human and capable of greed, hatred, brutality and even murder. Her characters take us through the struggles of the human capacity for good and evil, the capacity to love, human frailty, the burden of guilt and sin and realizing the dark side of their own nature. From Anna fleeing her eccentric Southern family, Olivia’s childhood memoir, Damon Pierce’s knowledge, John Love’s quest for Clara Jean, Little Bill’s Greenland to Pauley and Dylan’s driving lesson, a mother’s story of abuse, the long-winded George McNutt, Buzz the collector and Archie’s question, they are each in their own way searching for meaning and freedom. “Tales from a Strange Southern Lady” is fashioned with sentences that artfully paint perfect pictures and a sharp, wicked sense of humor. At the same time they carry that sort of Southern innocence and naiveté that makes the characters so likable and the hatable.

J. Allan Danelek

On a small rise near where the three seditionists were crucified, a lone figure sat huddled in the mud, using his cloak to shield himself from the driving rain. He watched the Romans as they pulled the dead men down from their crosses, knowing that one of the bodies was that of a man who would have been a king had not events gone so horribly awry. The sight tortured him, as did the knowledge that at one time he had been one of the man’s most trusted advisors. Once—perhaps a million years ago—he had even been his friend. Now, however, he was nobody. Just a name. Judas Iscariot. Read the story of the passion of Christ as told from Judas’ perspective and learn not only what “really” happened during that Passover week two thousand years ago, but discover what drove the man to betray his master and, eventually, take his own life. A compelling story of intrigue and suspense that will forever change the way you look at the man who “betrayed” the Savior!

Dr. David E. Martin, U.S. Congressional and E.U. Parliamentary policy adviser in global finance and ethics, came to international notoriety for his data analysis in his disclosure prior to the global financial crisis in 2008. His real-life insight and witness to corruption in the highest places has given way to a novel about the truth that befalls us. In a world where people have control in only the most mundane daily decisions, there are those manipulating nations at the highest levels. They are thieves of empires and emperors of the world.

Race across the globe with Dr. Cyrus Alexander as he roars to life in David Martin’s inaugural novel. From the windswept steppes of Mongolia to the sweltering desert of Dubai to the rooftop bars of Manhattan, this epic thriller weaves the global political events of the past twelve years into a tapestry so close to believable that it will leave you wondering where the line between fantasy and reality is drawn. The audacity of stealing all of the G-7 assets right out from under the noses of the world’s self-proclaimed elite is so amazing it would not have to be hidden. No one would believe it. A conspiracy to overthrow those powerful men alleged to be the puppet masters of the world goes beyond the imagination of most, leaving names like Rockefeller, Morgan, Kennedy, Rothschild, Oppenheimer, Blankfein, and Goldman scratching their heads. The manipulators are manipulated as power flows rapidly up to the shadowy, cloud-covered pinnacle of lies and deceit.
