CHARLENE is an Eastern Kentucky coalminer's daughter who vows not to drink like her father, swears she will not be stuck in a tumultuous marriage but finds herself in those very situations she vowed would never happen. At a very early age, Charlene falls in love with the mine foreman's wild, irresponsible, yet incredibly handsome son, discovers she is pregnant at seventeen, and learns about life through extreme sorrow. Charlene grows close to BIRDIE, the local weathered old hillbilly, who smokes, drinks, cusses, plays poker like a man, and takes her on a cruise. They have the time of their lives, and the pages are ripe with humor from the episodes of the two cruising on a luxury liner. When Charlene returns, she is traumatized by her husband once again, and leaves in the middle of the night to begin a new life. She moves outside of Cincinnati on the Kentucky side, finds a job, and a small house. Charlene meets ROSIE, her next-door neighbor. As the two become friends, Charlene is introduced to KARMA, Rosie's niece. Eventually all three women develop lifelong, deeper friendships, bringing joy into each other's lives. With baby steps and relapses, we learn that overcoming a past can be done, that humor makes life bearable, and that working, struggling mothers of low income remain poor partly because the government structure completely ignores them. When Fallen Angels Fly is a thoroughly enjoyable book reading experience, replete with laughter, tears, triumph, and tragedy.
Sally, gifted with flight, flies to remote lands and fulfills her dying grandmother's wishes by bringing her snow in the summer, and taking her on a journey to the islands in the winter.
So far in 2013-14 I've written and produced four albums and am working on a fifth. Two; "The river" and "Charleena" in 2013 and "The King of The Fire", and "once Upon a Perfect Storm" in 2014, and am working on "I'm in Love With a Dream". Many of my songs are ballads with a natural order theme to them, I try to put meaning to them , tell a story or have the listener stop and take pause. There is a pattern or creative reality expressed in many of them with a philosophical alignment to Native cultures. Subjects include stuff like Eagles ,Rivers ,Storms ,Dreams, Battle, Love, Spirit, Fire, Wonder, Life, Epic Adventure, and Overcoming or Conquering adversity through Natural Living. I find myself in agreement with native philosophy and teachings

Author Chet Morelli encourages you to think about and ask yourself many questions as he shares his research on our human ancestors and the resulting inquiries he has discovered in the process.

He not only looks into the past but also the present as he explores whether our fast-paced society may have caused our government leaders to make the wrong choices. He also takes an in-depth look into the mind of today's man. Morelli touches on the future as he contemplates the possibility of World War III and what role the three largest religions may play in deciding the important historical events of the coming years. Whose Time Is it Anyway? will help you reflect on our human experience and how time relates to the questions where have we been?, where are we now?, and where are we going? Only time will tell

Nine years after they married, Lucinda Esperanza and her husband lovingly welcomed their first child Jason into their family. At first, he appeared to be just a hyperactive and stubborn child, but soon after Jason turned thirteen, the family began to experience events beyond their control. Jason's addiction to crystal methamphetamine, heroine, and ecstasy propelled him on a path of self-destruction that included skipping school, running away, living on the streets, and a complete disregard for authority. Together, these three family members learn to walk arm-in-arm through a journey of perseverance, unconditional love, and seemingly endless hurdles with the shared ultimate goal of saving Jason's life and guiding him to use his potential in a positive way. In due course, the smart, observant and street-wise Jason finds the strength to stop the cycle of drug abuse and cleans up his life. Anyone who has lived with or loved someone with an addiction will relate to this mother's retrospective glance back at the challenges she faced as the mother of a son who lost his way.
