Without the Veil Between


Without the Veil Between catches both the triumph and the tragedy of Anne's short but quietly courageous and determined life. This book gives us Anne. Not Anne, the 'less gifted' sister of Charlotte and Emily, nor the Anne who 'also wrote two novels', but Anne herself, courageous, committeed, daring and fiercely individual: a writer of remarkable insight, prescience and moral courage whose work can still astonish us today. ~Deborah Bennison, Bennison Books What Denton has achieved is a portrait placed in a time very different from the jangling present, but that resonates in a way that suspends years and centuries .... ~Thomas Davis, author of The Weirding Storm ... meticulous, poetic, luminous, and powerful ... I can't think of anyone better suited to bring us into the world of the sensitive, creative, and quietly courageous Anne. ~Mary Clark, Author of Tally, an Intuitive Life, Miami Morning, and Racing the Sun

A Christmas Carol in Maine


A Christmas Carol in Maine is a holiday message to help fight teen drug use. Set in contemporary Hallowell, Maine, this retelling of the Dickens classic focuses on the issues that affect today's teens including drug and alcohol abuse and teen suicide. In place of old Scrooge there is 16-year-old TJ. Having recently lost his father in Iraq, TJ turns to drugs in an effort to cope with the pressures of modern society. Returning from the dead like Jacob Marley in the original story, TJ's father informs his son of the pending visitations of three spirits. Not sure if his father's image is merely drug induced, TJ is about to have a Christmas Eve that may change his current journey down a path of self-destruction. The message is ideally suited for middle and high school aged teens and especially their families. "A Maine Christmas Carol is a moving replay of the Christmas classic. It comes to life in its portrayal of the character of TJ, a realistic portrait of a disenfranchised youth. He struggles to deal with the loss of his father and fears loving his family in case he loses them also. By becoming totally self-absorbed he only has to think about himself, by putting down others he maintains his wall of uncaring. The author, Philip Harris, has managed to create a sympathetic, understandable character even as TJ scares the elderly and young children alike." ~Barb Radmore, Editor, FRONT STREET REVIEWS

Friends Incarnate


Gable, though no Don Juan, is lover incarnate in age of baby-boomers. He is master of his own fate, but also a restless spirit haunted by the demons of his own psyche. His girlfriend Ethel gets married to his best friend Fabian, and thus begins the journey of his sinful passion and glorious madness. Remaining true to his love lost, he wades through the waters of a loveless marriage, then divorce, and finally into the furnace of adultery with his brother’s wife. He tumbles down the rungs of depravity, clings to Ethel in his thoughts as one devotee to his patron saint. His sister commits suicide, his brother dies, and so does his friend Fabian, leaving open the gates of paradise for Gable and Ethel as Friends Incarnate. The first part of Gable’s own villanelle sums up his mood of caprice and madness. “Let me sleep in peace, wake me up on judgment day.”

Saving Boone: Legend of the Half-White Son

New Release!

In 1853 young Boone Tyler is thrust alone into the rapidly changing and dangerous environment west of the Mississippi. Was his white mother killed by his Kiowa father? His mother refused to let Kae-Gon into Boone’s life, but he told Lynelle he’d come for Boone when he was twelve. She swore she’d rather kill Kae-Gon than see Boone live in a world under constant threat. She made Boone swear to stay white, even taught him Shakespeare to help center him in her world in eastern Kansas. After her death, Boone seeks out his grandfather, an army general, to help him kill his father. He quickly learns that many in the white world only see him as Indian. On his adventures alone in the wilds of the western territories, Boone is often saved by the mysterious voice in his head that he thinks is his dead twin brother. Sam’s voice, and the symbols he becomes obsessed with, remind him that he’s more than just a half-white son and to learn more of his father’s world before killing him. Events keep tangling with Boone’s desire for revenge for Lynelle’s death, including a wife, a cattle drive, thieves, Civil War, and people who continue to see him as Kiowa, not white. By 1874 he comes to understand the meaning of being “half-breed,” but is Sam’s voice enough to save their father’s life?
