The Truth About Smoke and Mirrors

by Jillian Miller

Most families have dirty little secrets, but some families have dark, shameful ones. Brooklyn-born identical twin Jillian Miller assumed her family had neither, but at 18, after losing her virginity, she’s diagnosed with crippling depression and anxiety that would stay with her for thirty years.

When her troubled twelve year old daughter enters therapy for her own issues, Jillian takes her first pain pill. She was 41. It would set in motion a chain of events that would force her into the depths of addiction, and uncover in rehab her own trauma so terrifying that both she and her sister had buried it long ago.

Seven pill-filled years later, she decides to experiment with something as controversial as it is curing. Cannabis. It began to help her in ways she didn’t expect, and took her on a journey that she’d never thought she’d take. What follows is her story of hope and healing, and her willingness to be a voice of trauma, addiction, and recovery.

RETAIL: and other things in life we want gift-wrapped

by Ric Bennett

4 Star review from Red City Review. An exploration of both celebrity and the everyday, RETAIL: and other things in life we want gift-wrapped is author Ric Bennett’s memoir – a reflection upon his earthy Midwest roots and his fame-tinged Angeleno adulthood. Soon after relocating from Michigan to California to pursue a career as a recording artist in the music industry, our hero Ric finds himself working at an upscale retail location in the heart of Los Angeles. Through Retail, Bennett juxtaposes his upbringing with lessons learned during his new life on the West Coast, all highlighted by amusing celebrity encounters from his time in Tinseltown.

Bennett’s reflections on his life’s journey are interspersed seamlessly with journal entries in a format that is compelling and immediately engaging. Bennett’s tone is conversational and humorous and – regardless of the subject matter – the treatment of his stories is tight and full of warmth. Bennett’s experiences range from rapturous to heartbreaking, but he maintains such a cheerful and optimistic voice so as to always keep the book feeling breezy and approachable. Hand-in-hand with this good-natured air is a casually philosophical current, and Bennett’s adventures are unfailingly accompanied with an insightful perspective. The result is a portrait of a life that is rich, involving, enlightening, and often sparkling with pure hilarity.

Bennett is a grand storyteller and, eschewing pomposity, his story feels honest, pure, and relatable; brimming full of timeless sentiments and of-the-moment documentation of our era.

Jane Austen wrote that in her novels she painted the world on a “little bit (two inches wide) of ivory,” working “with so fine a brush.” Her well-known books, such as Pride and Prejudice and Emma, display the power of this approach; her observations about human nature have proven so accurate and entertaining that her books continue to be beloved two hundred years after they were written.

Paradise Lost and Found

by J.T. Evergreen

I met Mark Stubbs on the Internet several years ago. During the course of our developing friendship, I began to suspect his childhood was a crushing experience. This unassuming gentle creature was subjected to relentless bullying which damaged his self-esteem to the point of being irreparable.

Through the grace of a higher being, Mark was introduced to horses. In his own words, he relates the defining moment that forever changed his life.
At the barbecue, they had two horses in a corral and let people have a go at riding them. I was a show-off, I’m afraid to say, and I rode Camenante around the corral, again and again. A man came to my parents and said, “If that was my child, I would do everything in my power to make sure he pursued riding because he’s a natural.

And so his parents did take this strangers advice. Recently Mark sent me notes of his life taken over several decades. I gave them to my editor who pulled these 32,000 words into a powerful novella which I am so very pleased to have been able to produce for my friend, this remarkable horseman and gentleman.
