Anno Domina

Authored by Patrick S. Lafferty

The year is 2030, and the most important decision of Damien Driver's brief tenure as governor of Arizona is to decide whether or not he should stay the execution of a heretical cult leader. Damien's conservative constituency - and just about everyone else with an opinion - wants the treasonous woman dead. However, the party's single largest contributor, the Bishop of Phoenix, as well as the prison chaplain plead with the governor for clemency: the bishop citing the Church's stance against capital punishment; the chaplain believing she is the second coming of Christ. Already convinced that the woman is wholly innocent, Damien searches frantically for a legal loophole to justify a stay of execution only to discover that there are unearthly forces at work trying to make the decision for him.

About the author:
Patrick S. Lafferty is currently the creative director and senior copywriter for a small marketing communications firm just outside of Milwaukee, Wis. For the last twenty years he has spent his days creating persuasive ad copy and informative brochure copy, writing trade publication feature articles and press releases, and otherwise developing myriad other marketing materials. For the last twenty years he has spent his nights writing fiction, typically mainstream fiction with a genre bending twist.
Before becoming a copywriter, he spent 18 years sitting through the lesson plans of the nuns, priests, brothers and laypersons employed by the various Catholic schools he attended, the final six years resulting in a BFA in Commercial Design from the University of Dayton and an MA in Advertising Copywriting from Marquette University. It was from these institutions that the foundation for Anno Domina was laid ... and subsequently cracked.
Patrick is a member of the Milwaukee Writer's Circle and the Milwaukee Writer's Workshop (MWW). He, his beautiful, supportive wife, and his two exhausting boys graciously share their home in the Milwaukee suburbs with their oddball dog, Macie.

Janelle's Time is the epic story of the great love between a New Hampshire farmer's daughter, Janelle LeDuc, and the son of an English Duke, Richard Grayson.
From her father's death in a logging accident to barely surviving the birth of twin daughters, Janelle makes it difficult for Richard to protect her, but not on purpose.
Unaware of Janelle's maternal-line powers, the couple accidentally time-travels to 14th century England, meeting Richard's ancestors, and discovering some startling truths about Richard's aristocratic family that nearly destroys their relationship.

About the author:
My father was a teacher when I was very young. During story-time when I was four years old, he started teaching me to read. It began a life-long love affair between books and me.
In junior high, I wrote short stories to entertain classmates. In high school, the 'Future Plans' chapter of my autobiography (English assignment) included being a published writer.
'World Radio News' (San Diego, CA) requested an article about our amateur radio club providing communications for a March of Dimes Walkathon, in hopes of other clubs doing the same public-service.
In early 2002, wanting to write, I sought a third-shift position and wrote what became 'Janelle's Time.' When it was complete, I shelved it. In 2009, after starting a Twitter page, @Writers_Cafe, the WIP came off the shelf. By August 2011, it was ready for submission.
I penned an article about @RileyCarney, a Colorado teen, and very prolific YA fantasy author, who heads her own non-profit literacy project. Never officially published, countless people have seen it, thanks to Twitter retweets and well-placed emails.
Janelle's Time is Book 1 of my TIME Series.
I have lived in Florida since 1992 with my husband, Peter, and our cat, Spunkie.

KINDLE Davy doesn’t let Down Syndrome stop him from living a normal life but when one of his hikes in the mountains brings him too close to a subterranean creature, ulasiga, the mind controlling creature uses Davy’s love of children to send him on a mission. The ulasiga projects the dark underground as a safe haven for abused children. It uses this to send Davy out to bring him this endless supply of food. Justin knows another beating is coming, he can hear it in his drunken mother’s voice. His decision to go with the nice man to a safe place may have come too late. Even if he escapes the whipping, he may end up as dinner for the dark creature. Biography Glenn Oliver Parkhurst was born Glenn Oliver Parkhurst. Makes sense. My Dad was a career Marine, Sempter Fi, so I never stayed in one place long. My Mother, the best, was from Friendship, NY, thus the town in my novel. Friendship was a great place for a young boy to grow up and still holds a place in my heart. I am now a single father of 4 boys and a pack of grandchildren. I love travel and outdoor adventures, food, and family. Besides horror, I write humor and links to many of those stories can be found on my website
