By Jerald Lee Watts, M.D. FS. USAFRes.

Author Jerald Watts, a native Georgian served in the USAF in the early 1960s during a period of increasing world tension of the Cold War. While a flight surgeon he describes those personal reflections as he accompanies and advocates for his air crews world wide. He describes intense international events, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Soviet intimidation of West Berlin, the American participation with UN forces in the former Belgian Congo, and the buildup and beginning of the Viet Nam conflict. From a personal aspect he brings a "memorable memoir" to life.

His earlier memoir, PROMISES KEPT, a story of Atlanta's Grady Hospital during the 1950s and 1960s, a period of Racial Segregation to Integration, brought a nomination of Georgia Author of the Year in 2010 by the Georgia writers Association.

Now retired after practicing orthopaedic surgery for over 30 years he resides in Peachtree City, Ga with his companion, author Ellen Hunter Ulken and his English Setter Luke.

By Julia Watson

“It’s All Good” is written as the result of a mother’s journey through her daughter’s unexpected death from cancer. Unlike most books on this topic, it deals with the day to day struggles caused from grief and heartache. The book touches on Julia’s early life in a small town in Kentucky, her two daughters, remarriage and the challenges of her husbands own health issues. It’s raw and honest. It’s about those days when you think if you have to attend another birthday, wedding or holiday event, you will go absolutely crazy. Those days when you question God and why you’re still alive and your child isn’t. Those days when you feel so distant and far away from your family and friends. Those long, cold days of darkness and despair. And, yet, how can going in to a dusty, cluttered home office change your life? How can picking up a small, never read book bring you to your knees? How can three simple words, “it’s all good”, over power and erase every day of hopelessness? Totally unprepared and unexpected, it did.

By Arlene Sollis

When Arlene Sollis was born with cerebral palsy in 1935, the doctor advised her parents against taking her home. He said she would never function on her own—that she would be mentally handicapped and unlikely to survive beyond the age of ten. Her quality of life, the doctor said, would be minimal at best, and so he recommended that she be sent to an institution, where she would be taken care of.

Her mother refused, instead taking Arlene home with her. And all of the doctor’s predictions turned out to be false. Arlene turned out to be a bright child with a true zest for life. Although she has certainly faced struggles and difficulties in her life, she grew to adulthood and eventually became a special education teacher. She dedicated her life to promoting the rights of all disabled people, receiving many awards and citations for her work.

This memoir tells the true and inspiring story of Arlene’s life, following her from birth until the present and recalling her childhood, teaching career, progression of her condition, and retirement.

By Edward A. Nichols, M.D.

Throughout the last fifty years, author Edward Nichols has spent much of his interior life consumed with attempts to fill in the blanks and contradictions in his family history, especially the status of his father, who left the family in 1943.

In Fade to White, Nichols shares his personal and family history against the backdrop of his father’s disappearance and how it affected every aspect of his life. For years, no one knew if Nichols’ father was dead or alive. This memoir follows Nichols’ upbringing in the small, isolated colored world of the Bronx in the 1940s and 1950s, to medical school abroad, to his long-running medical practice and helping pediatric patients, to advocating and supporting his daughters.

Honest and poignant, Fade to White narrates his life story with its ups and downs and triumphs and challenges. It tells of one family’s coming together—an epilogue of one man’s search for his father.

By Marilyn Pelkey

When author Marilyn Pelkey’s son, Kendall, was twenty-seven, he was diagnosed with an unusual and aggressive cancer. Less than two years later, he passed away.

A recently separated father of three children at the time of his diagnosis, Kendall was an outgoing and open-minded man who loved music and saw strangers as friends he hadn’t met yet. In this memoir, Pelkey shares the story of their lives and of Kendall’s battle with cancer. She recalls the history of their family, from her childhood through the youth and adulthood of Kendall and his sister, Elizabeth. She also explores how cancer changed her life forever as she learned to live with this new reality. The year after Kendall’s death, she and many members of Kendall’s family got involved with the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, and they have worked hard to keep Kendall’s memory alive.

This personal narrative shares a heartbreaking story, but reminds us that there can be comfort found in this second life following the death of a loved one in knowing that you are not alone.

By Tenacity

”When the Iraq War broke out in the spring of 2003, no one knew what was going on, and no real systems were in place. Author Tenacity had his Department of Defense travel orders, but no destination had been specified beyond “Saddam’s palace in Baghdad.” In 2003, few contractors traveled by themselves, and there was no established process.

In Six Years in the Middle East, Tenacity shares his experiences as a DoD contractor with the U.S. military in the Middle East from 2003 to 2009. This memoir chronicles his journey as he traveled from Qatar, to Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Iraq again, Oman, and back to Iraq, while entering into a romantic relationship along the way.

With photographs included, this journal offers a unique, in-depth perspective on the Middle East and its conflicts of the early twenty-first century through the eyes of a military man and the common sense of a civilian.

By James Stephen Fulbright, Ph.D.

Glimpses of Life is the result of James Stephen Fulbright’s observation, imagination, and memory to view his world objectively. This work has been inspired by real people and real events. The people who inspired him were his relatives and close friends and an occasional stranger. He has nothing but praise for them and gratitude to them for making his life interesting and complete along with the lives of his kinsmen and friends, contributing to making life rich and full.

For those interested in time-span, these stories begin with the earliest stories taking place about 1740 and the most recent stories concluding about 1965 and some even as recent as 2014 counting the time during which he is looking back. He is offering stories, ones that can be read separately or read together. Because the stories can be read separately, he has them divided into chapters, and because they are less than whole entities, he presents them not as wholly comprehensible in and of themselves, but rather as, in view of the rich texture of real life, short glimpses—glimpses of life.

To bring in other points of view in Glimpses of Life with concern for meaning and understanding, he has created a narrative that delves into values and meanings that profile the glimpses of his life story.
