I recall the exact moment when I sounded out each word and realized that I knew the meaning of every one, that I could follow the narrative. It was the beginning of my love affair with books.
People read for a variety of reasons:
- Mental stimulation is one. Reading has been shown to slow the onset of certain types of dementia and even Alzheimer's.
- Reading is a great place to pick up knowledge and learning. There's a good reason we all had "school books".
- Reading is also good for stress reduction, an easy escape from your life and into one where the problems are the protagonist's and not yours.
- Some researchers even think reading can aide in focus and concentration. After all, it takes time and deliberation to finish a book. A reader needs to immerse themselves in the world of the story, blocking out mundane distractions.
- And most of all, reading engenders empathy. That's something sorely lacking in the world today. Bombarded with rhetoric that fosters an "us versus them" mentality, it's almost a relief to be able to turn the page of a book and actually be one of "them", step into their shoes for a time and ultimately realize that we're not all that dissimilar. Reading allows us to experience a world outside our own selfish sphere. It stops the mad rush of life and makes us ponder questions and status quo. Reading lets us experience a story from another side, intimately, internally, with hope and fears interwoven with tough decisions and seemingly insurmountable situations.
Because books are magic.
And reading will save the world.

Title: Solid as a Rock
Released: September 1, 2016
With nowhere left to run, she must turn to her first love to deal with a powerful evil. Except he's not the boy she remembers, and he's not exactly happy to see her.
Ellie King's life has never been easy--raised by a mother who went from one abusive relationship to the next. Her only love and stability came from her grandmother. But now Ellie's mother is dead and her gran's in a coma, both from causes doctors can't explain ... and Ellie may be next. Her only hope of staying alive? The boy she once left without a word of goodbye, now a man--a devastatingly attractive man with a stony composure she can't read.
Michael Munro turned his back on the past to make a new life. He's not happy at being pulled again into Ellie's sphere. She's still impossible to resist, but now she's in deep trouble, and the cause may be a fragment of rock she found in her mother's effects. An artifact that saps his powers of precognition, and even those of other paranormals like his uncle and mentor, Lucan. Can Michael stand strong against her pull and that of the ancient stone?
A powerful evil is on the trail of their find--in the demon Cael. Can Michael and Ellie resist the attraction burning between them long enough to find the missing piece of the artifact and get it to safety? If they don't, all hell will break loose ... literally.
She's in trouble beyond human understanding. Good thing he's more than human ...

Genre: New Adult Magical Realism

College senior Cory Long tracked his missing sister to the magical Moonlight Market to bring her home. Instead, he wound a disorienting world of performers and hawkers, bizarre sights and sounds, and one very familiar showman, Sanderson Beets. Like a drowning man, he latched onto Sanderson, trusting him to navigate the twists and turns of the Market as unerringly as he had steered Cory to passion in their furtive trysts on campus.
But Sanderson was tired of being the quickie in the alley.
Sanderson Beets had escaped the Moonlight Market to attend college, hoping to settle into a normal life, maybe meet someone and fall in love. To obtain that new life he made a dangerous bargain. And when the sinister woman known as the Weaver of Dreams is involved, second chances always com with strings attached...and sacrifices. Sanderson's debt has come due, and the only payment he has to offer is Cory, and their chance at a relationship.
