In Harry Heron: No Quarter, Harry Heron and his best friend Ferghal O’Connor are cadets at Fleet College, eager to master their skills in preparation for commissioning to a ship. They’ve barely stepped foot on campus when they realize they’re targeted and sabotaged at every turn, but this doesn’t stop them from exuberant participation in the Sailing Regatta, the Gun Run, and the usual flirtations and hijinks of college life. Meanwhile, the Consortium, supporting the Johnstone Group, does everything in its power to keep them from testifying at an enquiry to expose Johnstone’s questionable research practices that nearly killed Harry in their secret laboratory on the planet Pangaea. No quarter given, none asked, Harry and Ferghal overcome every obstacle with youthful vigor and optimism, intelligence and training, and prove valuable to the Fleet as junior officers of the NECS Leander in the ongoing struggle against the Consortium.
A freak accident on board the HMS Spartan during a sea battle with the French navy in 1804 catapults Midshipman Harry Heron and his shipmates Ferghal O’Connor and Danny Gunn four hundred years into the future, landing them on the NECS Vanguard, flagship of the World Treaty Organisation Fleet. While Captain Blackwood and Major Heron sort out the mystery and determine whether the young men are alive or dead, Harry and his friends are faced with the challenge of learning new roles aboard a spaceship. Just as they have found their footing, they are called upon to assist the Fleet in a rescue mission on the planet Pangaea, giving them the opportunity to prove that their unique skills from the past are still very relevant in the far distant future.
A fantasy detective adventure, with characters from Camelot as time travelling detectives.
Merlin is a good looking woman and madly in love with Arthur and they elope, but that’s only the start of the story.
Tertia, Unita, Merlin’s apprentices, and Marlene, her sister, know what they want to be… detectives with a difference. Bored with the lack of opportunity in 5th century Camelot they start up the Temporal Detective Agency and use the great Merlin’s Time Portal to relocate from Camelot to the 21st century mostly because the cases are more interesting, but also because the toilet facilities are so much better.
Things start slowly until one Sunday morning Tertia finds herself replacing Nelson’s statue in Trafalgar Square, involved in the thefts of the Koh-i-noor diamond and the Mona Lisa. The Agency follows the trail to South Wales in 1734 where they come up against a gang of vicious smugglers and ruthless ship wreckers led by their deadliest and most unlooked for enemy.
Help comes from an unexpected source, but the Temporal Detective Agency’s first case could prove to be their last!
The 2nd in the Temporal Detective Agency series.
When Arthur’s sword Excalibur is stolen the Temporal Detective Agency is called in to protect not only Arthur and Merlin, but to stop a very clever and cruel person from destroying Camelot itself. To make things worse, this time the TDA has no idea who they’re fighting.
Marlene’s plan takes Tertia and Unita to Rome, Egypt and even to a meeting with Shakespeare, before confronting their enemy in the Coliseum.
But first, if the Agency is to succeed, Arthur must die…. and Merlin and her King have to agree. If they don’t, Camelot will be doomed and History itself could be changed.
That’s the trouble with swords!

Shelly Fagan loved Chris Johnson—she promised him she would love him forever. Shelly also loved Philip Gerard, the father of her two sons. Chris knew and loved Shelly Fagan, the girl. Philip loved Shelly Fagan, the woman the girl became. But Shelly the girl was still there, trapped inside.
Shelly Fagan unexpectedly learns her son’s upcoming Little League tourney will be held in St. Francis, Indiana—the same small town—where she was forced into a convent at age seventeen. Now, at age thirty-six, Shelly discovers the shocking truth about what really happened, and the fact her parents lied and allowed her to believe their lies for the past eighteen years.
Controlling Shelly Fagan is a debut novel from Olive Dunn that will take readers on an emotional journey of a young woman whose life has been dominated by secrets and deceit.

Emotionally scarred and physically weary, Dwan is ordered to go forty-seven years into the past in a last ditch effort to find the one man who can help her fight the monsters created decades ago by a company called Lambruchet. Monsters that have since devastated mankind and the world.
Eli Voight has been battling the Lambruchet demons ever since the company had his father killed. As the first Troller, he’s made it his duty to bring down the creatures and find a way to permanently stop them. He’s skeptical of Dwan’s claim that she’s from the future. But her skill is undeniable, and her presence becomes an all-consuming passion for the man who had pushed aside any thought of a personal life in his quest to drive the demons to extinction.
Dwan never expected to fall and fall hard for the emotionally unapproachable soldier. Worse, she knew what kind of death lay ahead for Eli, which meant there could never be a future for them.
Together, they must fight to take out the monstrosities, or else Earth as it is will cease to exist. And the Earth that could be, Dwan’s world, will only hold a future of horror and hopelessness.

THE INNER LOVER
“To thrive, love depends on the imaginative use of solitude.” If you have been uncomfortable about the intensity of your feelings for someone, crushed because they don’t feel the same way, or especially critical of your partner, then you will benefit from this book.
Understanding why we are passionately attracted to certain people can lead us to the “Inner Lover,” a creative aspect of our own nature. The images, feelings, and fantasies that are aroused when we fall in love—in brief encounters and lasting bonds, in requited and “impossible” relationships—are the keys to hidden potentials within ourselves. In this book, Valerie Harms presents techniques of journaling, dreamwork, and imaginal dialogues to guide the reader on an adventure of self-discovery in which the powerful energies of love may be transformed into creativity and fulfillment.
Valerie Harms is the author of ten books and a creativity counselor. She has led writing and Intensive Journal workshops at centers around the country, plus Canada and Greece. She worked on several projects with the diarist Anais Nin. A graduate of Smith College, forseven years she was a project editor at the National Audubon Society.

As an intergalactic cop gifted with psionic abilities, Maurra instinctively went to the Ellinod’s defense when she saw the immense and bestial-looking alien being attacked by a group of vicious Kronners. Little did she know what the Kronners had planned for her and the Ellinod until she woke up naked in a cell inside their ship.

This book contains divine affirmations, words of vibrational healing that come from within and from my other metaphysical books. These collections of affirmations and quotes are also from the responses of testimonials of those that affected the readers in profound ways that released them from their self-imposed prisons, spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.
People don’t thoroughly realize that their words create their reality but the power of words do. People wonder why their lives don’t bring about a peace and a cohesiveness that they see happening to others around them. They read books and books about abundance and prosperity and listen to hundreds of audio books but still don’t get it. They don’t get that the intention they put behind their words, the force and focus behind their words and thoughts create the undesired or desired end.
My intention is to help you see what you really want to see in your life and not what you don’t want to see.
