So Why Is The Sky Blue?

When substitute teacher Shaneen Wynelle is suddenly offered a full-time teaching position for the balance of the school year, she can't help but wonder. However, upon meeting her class of 'incorrigibles' she quickly realizes that she has been thrown to the wolves in the form of a gaggle of unruly and mutinous students. Instead of the three R's as she knows them: reading, writing and arithmetic, Ms. Wynelle is faced with rebellious, rowdy and rambunctious teenagers. As Ms. Wynelle struggles to calm the chaos in her classroom, she gradually discovers her students are actively curious and want to know more about life than what they find in the pages of their textbooks. Her challenge is to meet the school board teaching objectives while giving her challenging charges outlets for their curiosity about everything from religion, spirituality, sexuality, bullying and money matters to Canadian Indigenous history and the hereafter. After two tumultuous terms with her class, Ms. Wynelle realizes the three R's have morphed once more to represent remarkable, refreshing and realistic.

The Armory

Justin Patterson is receiving blow after blow in the fight of his life against a powerful and pugnacious system at the top of federal politics. His tenacious resolve to weaken the hegemonic political entity comes from a serious and bloody incident, which reoccurs on a regular basis in society and effects the lives of countless people in the United States of America as a result. Nothing is done to solve the problems of deceit, corruption and lobbying out of fear of repercussions against innocent citizens. Justin is convinced the system, he dubs "The Armory" is the primary source of transgression and controversy. It uses its model of coercion and manipulation to remain at the top of power. He uses all available strength and courage to bring it down but suffers constant waves of threats, intimidation and retaliation from a system, which has no intention of letting go of its power for anyone and anything.

She also offers suggestions that help the reader become more aware of their own unconscious thoughts and methods to gain practical control over the more negative thoughts, replacing them with more positive ones.

Merchants Exchange: Ignatius Cockshutt, 1812 - 1901 Canadian Entrepreneur

The MERCHANTS EXCHANGE is a lively history, primarily about Ignatius Cockshutt, his entrepreneurial skills, and his contributions to the development of the City of Brantford, Canada, from 1832 to 1962. Following a brief ancestral history of the Cockshutt family in England, it then tells of their emigration to York (Toronto) and the family store there in 1828. The story then tells how young Ignatius builds an empire, becomes wealthy, and is instrumental in building Brantford into a world class manufacturing city. Ignatius’s nine children follow his example and continue his good work, making fine contributions to the industrial and political growth of Canada. The MERCHANTS EXCHANGE is built from private family records including six wonderful Letterbooks, which are exact copies of personal and business correspondence, written by Ignatius Cockshutt between 1832 and 1898, making the story not only factual, but also a gold-mine of genuine historical information. You will enjoy every line of this wonderful chronicle about an early Canadian entrepreneur, and his contributions to Canada.

The Adventures of Sweet Tooth the Sugar Troll: Falling Doesn't Hurt Until You Stop

Sweet Tooth can usually be seen with a glass jar of candies clutched between his hands as he goes about whatever business he has with other Trolls in the forested, swampy lowland along the Leaf River just before it passes Petal, Mississippi.

He's a Sugar Troll, the first of several dozen Troll Tribes to settle here to escape the Civil War's destruction. The Sugar Trolls lived along the Appomattox River in Virginia for decades. They quickly learned that the land they settled in Mississippi shares an important characteristic with the land they left in Virginia - mosquitoes. Three seasons a year the air is thick with mosquitoes.

Trolls barter, they have no money.

Trolls who know how to make flyswatters swap them for vegetables or fruit, or sewing patches on shirts. As Sweet Tooth's Great Grandfather, Tooth Ache, told him one day shortly after moving to Mississippi:

"Our muscles know how to make flyswatters. Our minds know how many flyswatters we must make if we want to make more flyswatters. Our stomachs tell us how many flyswatters we must make and sell if we want to eat. If we can make them in Virginia, we can make them in Mississippi."

The Average José: An Immigration Story

Canada is a nation built by immigrants, and this is the story of one such man. In the 1950s, José Pires bid farewell to his wife of five days, leaving the island of São Miguel in the Azores and coming to Canada in hopes of building a life for his future family.

Working across Canada on the Canadian Pacific Railway and Canadian National Railway, José embodied an ideal that is hard to find in today’s generation: the idea that your life should not be measured by what you achieve for yourself, but by what you leave to others. An honest, loyal man, José waited eighteen months to see his wife again – Maria, the love of his life, mother of his eventual children, and the woman he would, years later, tend to in chronic care.

Intelligent and compelling, The Average José deftly counterbalances Portuguese themes of saudade (a simultaneous sense of love and loss) and obrigado (thankfulness). It moves effortlessly between the sometimes dreamlike cultural landscape of the Azores in the forties and fifties and the realities of the Canadian immigrant experience.

The purpose of this book is to help you acknowledge that when you persist in an environment without adapting to change, you will become obsolete. If you persist in an incompatible environment, you will eventually convince yourself your personality is a disease. Through the evidence of my own experience and my artwork, I attempt to define these underpinnings that represent the silent engine behind human ego. When difficult times like depression mercilessly shuffle experience, that blur of activity is difficult to comprehend. The next time you are grappling with your inadequacy, reach for this book and you will find a comrade who empathizes with your struggle.

Beside The River

Seventeen year old Maggie Hanson and her quirky English “mum” live on the edge of poverty in a small riverside mill town during the 1930’s. Maggie is admired by men around town, especially the sly and charming Victor Robertson, her best friends brother, who shows her attention as she waits for her beau Ben Harding. Ben is away at medical school, and although he at times neglects her, she remains loyal to him, clings to romantic promises and dreams of a future as his wife.

Maggie forces her mum to let her leave school so that she can help out with other peoples laundry sewing, or cleaning ...whatever will bring in some money. She starts work for a wealthy man who lives up the hill and soon finds herself caught up in new and ever-changing emotions as she struggles to reconcile her devotion to Ben and growing attraction to her kind and handsome employer.

I have lived in the small riverside town where this novel takes place and attended both school and university in the area. I was inspired by the small town’s setting and history to write the story “Beside The River” with its entertaining fictional characters. I love writing and other then short stories, this novel is my debut, and more than anything, I hope you find it entertaining.
