By Julie McCulloch Burton

Author Julie McCulloch Burton has an amazing zest for life, love, and laughter. In Pen to Paper, she shares that zeal through a diverse compilation of anecdotes, humorous stories, family recipes, and personal photographs.

In this, Burton’s second book, she provides unique insight into everyday situations and covers an array of topics, from her home and married life, her battle with multiple sclerosis, and her adventures at the veteran’s hospital. The stories hail from a woman who has led an eclectic life: she learned to use chopsticks in Hong Kong: she bought a sapphire and diamond ring in Singapore; she walked through a sand storm in Saudi Arabia; and she taught deaf children how to ride and jump horses.

Intimate, funny, cutting, and sometimes painful, the stories in Pen to Paper inform, entertain, and enlighten. The narratives illustrate that Burton has lived a long life, but that she has not yet lived a lifetime.

Men and women have faithfully served in the armed forces of this nation, fighting evil and terrorism around the globe. Their lives were put on hold as they followed orders to locate and destroy those who wanted to impose their will and lifestyle on others. Those soldiers continue to fight a war long after they return home from the battlefield. Their spouses, children, mothers, fathers, and siblings also fight the long battle against the hidden and disruptive enemy called post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

In The Wounds of the Soul, author Jim Money offers a compilation of short stories to foster better understanding of PTSD suffered by those returning from combat; to educate the veteran and his or her family and friends about the symptoms of this complex disorder; and to encourage those affected to seek help. Using a narrative format, the selections describe real-life experiences of a variety of soldiers who spent at least one year in combat in the Republic of South Vietnam. They and their families have been living with PTSD for more than forty years.

Written by veterans and veterans’ family members, the stories provide insight into the many sacrifices soldiers make on behalf of their country.

By Karen McCusker

This is a collection of poems, short stories (some autobiographical, some fictionalised) and essays written over the course of the last 40 plus years. It is simply a compilation of a variety of writing I engaged in in the course of my writing “career” and reflects different moods, some painful regarding lost love, others reflections on the beauty of nature, the joy of motherhood, the pleasure of spontaneity, and dreams gained and lost. As the tile “Life Bites” suggests, these are just bits and pieces of a woman’s life...

By Diane Campbell Thompson
Born in England during World War II, author Diane Campbell Thompson, a war child, tells of bomb shelters, air raid sirens, meager food, and clothing rations. In Road to Ithaka, she narrates an honest account of her life beginning with her birth in 1941. Raised on the rugged north east coast, the beach and sand dunes become a happy playground. But as Thompson happily built sandcastles in the sand, her father built castles in the air. Home became shifting sand, and a series of moves eventually saw the teenager leave the family to live on more stable ground with her grandmother. Through selected journals and short stories, she shares the stories as she traveled across Spain on the famous Santiago de Compestella, trekked the meanest thirty-three miles in history, drove a dog team in the Yukon, spent afternoons with a grandchild, and watched forlornly as a parent descended into that abyss known as Alzheimer’s. Sometimes introspective, sometimes humorous, always amusing, the stories and journals in this memoir reflect a free spirit in a world of endless possibilities.

By Floyd Funk
From his early childhood, author Floyd Funk was a dreamer and a romantic, wanting the most excitement and fulfillment he could get out of life. In My God/My Father, he shares forty years of his life story. His memoir recounts his pastoral and bittersweet small-town, Midwestern upbringing— culminating in the shocking revelation of his parental abduction at the age of eleven. From that point his life is irrevocably altered and we follow him on his trial-and-error road of re-unification, both with his family and with his own identity.

Funk shares how his saving grace was his faith in God, the one who helped him conquer his demons and break through the chains that held him down for years. This is Floyd’s testament to the unyielding presence of God through many years of broken relationships, false starts, and painful self-realization.

Incoming! Incoming! Incoming! This was the all-too-familiar signal that caused Army JAG lawyer, Paul Bouchard, to drop everything and seek cover in a concrete bunker, under a table, and beneath a palm tree during his one-year military tour in Iraq. But every time Bouchard patiently waited for the all-clear signal, he understood that each uncertain moment was just part of living and working in a combat zone.

In this true account of his experiences and those of his fellow JAG Corps buddies deployed in Iraq during 2010 and 2011, Bouchard shares an eye-opening look into daily life in a country where temperatures regularly reached over one hundred degrees Fahrenheit and where even criminal defense attorneys carried weapons and faced a variety of dangers—including nighttime kidnappings. Detailing how he and other JAG officers coped and stayed safe while defending soldiers, Bouchard provides insight on Saddam Hussein and his brutal regime, military base comforts, the horror induced by a troubled American soldier, and the ways soldiers cleverly circumvented the prohibitions behind General Order Number One.

Having It Good Downrange shares an Army JAG Officer’s fascinating narrative of his one-year deployment in Iraq as he carried out his rewarding work of defending America’s soldiers.

Southern California is many things to many people. A continuous influx of new people, new ideas, new interests, and different life styles creates a mind-boggling diversity. This story covers the life of an individual who is part of that diverse mosaic - an East Coast transplant who comes to Southern California by way of the US Marine Corps and San Diego.

This book is a chronology of indelible memories that begin with family life in the depression thirties and the early-on impact of Catholicism from elementary school to mid-college. It provides a unique insider’s view of life in a near monastic setting when the author, at age 15, commits himself to a religious order. Leaving the order in mid-college, he joins another highly disciplined organization – the United States Marine Corps where, as both an enlisted man and officer, he sheds the earlier mold of the religious life. After military service, years of mainstream jobs follow including city halls, county government, and aerospace - all blended with a heavy dose of politics and teaching. His engagement with entrepreneurial undertakings follows with responses to critical needs such as jobs for displaced aerospace engineers when space programs are cutback, creation of a charter school to meet the need for better public schools, and his expansion of academic programs to engage older Americans in mentally stimulating and life enhancing learning experiences. All these experiences are couched within the context of events that highlighted each decade.

This multifaceted career takes its toll on a marriage of thirty years whose continuity has been sustained in large measure through a family- shared hobby of dancing. But even dancing can’t hold together the strains put on a marriage by a roller coaster life of continuous change. Divorce and the premature death of 3 of 4 children mar a life absorbed with programs designed to benefit the community. Despite these losses, the author continues to lead, teach, and dance.

This book reflects so many facets of southland life that many readers, especially long time residents of Southern California, will identify with one or more aspects – the military, former aerospace workers, city workers, teachers, and the retirement community. It provides a unique overview of Southern California’s dance scene especially in the Los Angeles-Orange County-San Bernardino/Riverside, and San Diego areas. Dancing has long been central to the author’s family - ballroom, country, folk, and swing. The hobby continues to fuel the author’s energy and pleasure.

To those in or about to enter the expanding ranks of America’s seniors, the author sets an example of an age-impervious effort to enhance a community’s learning resources. His current efforts involve formation of a senior think tank whose analyses of current events will be shared with schools and the community.

There is no question that entering the third act of life often prompts individuals to reflect on their journey to date, their purpose in life, and their search for self. Through A Lens of Emptiness recounts how one man seeking clarity and perspective in the story of a lifetime learns to discard preconceptions, embrace emptiness, abandon ego, and ultimately discover a path of enlightenment.

L. Alan Weiss details how he began his quest to create his life narrative by utilizing Buddhist and Taoist philosophies and powerful tools that helped him define the nature of self through meditation, productive emptiness, and reflective thought processes. Weiss then turns the lens on his own life and thoughts as he sought clarity and understanding, searched for his back story, and explored his religious roots. Included are Weiss’s reflections on his personal discoveries, the nature of change, and what he gained through the process of revisiting his life story.

Through a Lens of Emptiness shares a journal of contemplation as one man embarks on a critical search for the essence of a meaningful life.
