Is He Dead?

by Rick Drew

During the fall of 1984 as this case was reaching its tragic conclusion I was a detective in Central Florida and this homicide case was assigned to me.

This story is about the lives of two children, a brother and sister who endured unthinkable cruelty at the hands of their step father. Their journey lasted for nearly a decade in the bowels of Southern Tennessee and came to an abrupt ending in Central Florida. As you read through this book you will learn of the horrific experiences forced on these two kids and the failures of our system to protect them. You will be inspired by their will to survive and the love that they had for each other.

“Is He Dead?” will take you on a journey that will affect all of your senses. Their intimate thoughts will be revealed to you as you watch their childlike plans to steal a gun and execute their step father. You will be on the edge of your seat each time their plans fail.

I was with this monster when he died, I watched his last gurgling breath as blood oozed from his wounds. Not knowing what he had done I actually felt sorry for him.

Turning Lepage: A French Girl’s Story of Life, Loss, and Love

by Eva Kostka

Having to clean house meant digging into the past that had been locked away. The pain and the memories that had faded were now coming back. The good memories centered on my childhood, as my parents made sure to give my sister, Vicky, and me everything we ever wanted. Then there were funny memories, like the time a professor stared at the pink playboy bunny on my t-shirt as she asked me to make sure I wore something appropriate for a presentation in front of the faculty. And finally, I recalled the bad memories and the pain of losing loved ones.

I didn’t always fit in and never said the right thing, but those are the things that made me the person I was becoming. I put away the past, thinking it was just thatâ??past. Little did I know, my past had been vital to my future.

Closet Wide Open: A Child’s Words

by Vivian Emery

In my career, I have been asked many questions about people and the choices they make in life. How can a person choose to harm themselves because they are in pain? how can a parent harm their child? How can complete strangers look at an innocent child and judge her as damaged, and worthless because of the actions of others?

Sure I have a formal education and professional answers for these questions, but what I know for certain is how it happened in my own life. My own words contained in these pages answer those questions applied not to the masses but to me. This story is how I went from being an innocent, brave and faithful child in an abusive home, to a throw-away teen bounced from home to home and losing all hope in people, to an outwardly successful college student with dirty secrets of her past and the razor blade in her bathroom, and finally a healthy adult who is guiding others on their healing journey.

I cannot claim this as fact, nor will I pretend that it is fiction. It is simply my experiences as I know them, told by me. This story is in remembrance to those who hurt me, and the love I had for many of them, in honor those who assisted me out of the situation I was born into and later those that I got myself into, and most of all to give a voice to the words I used to be afraid to speak in hopes others will no longer feel alone.

Sins Dyed In Blood: In Search of the Newcastle Pirate

by Paul Brown

Edward Robinson was a British pirate who sailed with Blackbeard during the Golden Age of Piracy in the early 1700s. Born in Newcastle upon Tyne, local legend says he fled to sea after slitting a man’s throat and dumping the body in the river. Robinson crossed the Atlantic to the Caribbean and the Americas, where he lived under a black flag, attacking ships, plundering gold, and murdering those who got in his way. In 1718, he was captured and sentenced to death by hanging in Charleston, South Carolina. “You caused your terror to be on all that haunt the sea,” his Judge told him, “and your sins are dyed in blood.” Almost 300 years later, Robinson has been virtually forgotten, and his story obscured by pirate myths and clichés. Was he really a murderous sea-robber, and did he deserve his brutal fate? Paul Brown retraces Robinson’s voyages on a quest to uncover the true swashbuckling story of the Newcastle Pirate.
