Nardella to write this novel. Life’s struggle can be lonely and painful. Gerald grew up in a small town, experiencing firsthand the insecurities from living in a broken home. Those insecurities still haunt him to this day.

Words many had forgotten: Until now.
On her 18th birthday, Elizabeth Kimache is approached by a mysterious stranger. What she first believed to be a marriage proposal, soon turns into a nightmare as she and her father are forced to run away from home with the stranger as their guild. With the threat of an unknown enemy approaching, Elizabeth will soon discover a truth so deadly, it could cost her life.
Fifteen-year-old Courtney wants to be normal like her friends. But there’s something frighteningly different about her—and it’s not just the mysterious tattoo her conspiracy-obsessed grandfather marked her with when she was a child. The last thing Courtney wants to do is end up crazy and dead like her grandfather—but what about the tattoo? And the alien scouts who visit Courtney in her bedroom at night, claiming to have shared an alliance with her grandfather?
With her new friend Agatha’s apocalyptic visions, Courtney begins connecting the dots between the past, present, and future—of her bloodline, and the ancient history that surrounds it. So is she going mentally insane, like her family claimed her grandfather did, or is she actually a “chosen one” with ancestral connections to another world? Either way, Courtney has a mission: untangle her past, discover the truth, and stop the apocalypse before anyone from school finds out she’s missing.
Witches. Demons. Angels. Ancient prophecies and eternal wars.
Kyra Parker seems to have it all: a successful career woman, wife, and mother; she’s living the life she always wanted. But appearances are deceiving. In reality, she’s a witch who has forbidden herself from using magic—at least the powers she has control over. Only two of her closest friends know her secret—one they share.
Kyra can no longer ignore her destiny when she is exposed as the key to the end of the world. She transforms into a dark witch after reluctantly surrendering her soul to the demon, Alastor, to save her loved ones.
With her friends, Alexis and Axel, chasing her across the country in an attempt to free her from the demon’s influence, Kyra ventures ever closer to the point of no return. Her family and friends need to work together before it’s too late to save her—and the rest of the world—from the demon apocalypse.
There’s just one problem—she doesn’t want to be saved.
A dark prophecy the from the book of Revelations comes to life when angels, demons, and witches battle for fate of humanity.
Kyra Parker tries to be normal, a wife and mother, she tries to hide her witch side from everyone. She’s been having nightmares about battles between Heaven and Hell since she was a child.
Alastor is the demon who’s been searching for Kyra for years. She’s the key to unlocking the gates of Hell. If he can convince her to join him he plans on turning the tables from good to evil and then the occupants of Heaven and Hell will trade places, releasing Hell on earth. He kidnaps her and all the people she loves, threatening to kill them. She strikes a deal agreeing to join him if he promises that he won’t harm any of them ever. Now her best friend Alexis and Alexis’ brother Axel, who are both witches, must try to rescue Kyra and save the world from an apocalypse.
The prophecy is unfolding and Kyra is in the center of it all. Will Kyra and the demon win or is there hope of saving not only Kyra but the world ? How will it all end ? The answer to these and many more questions will be found in this fast paced, action packed book. I hope there’s another coming, I’d love to read more of this exciting story.

Every now and then you meet someone and instantly know they are special. This is an amazing love story of a cat named Oreo and the woman he picked to be his mom.
Oreo was famous for getting into mischief and compromising situations. You will laugh at his antics and keep wondering what he will do next!
I laughed, and I cried at this short but sweet and amazing story of the love between Caralee and her cat Oreo. She rescued Oreo from a shelter when he was a baby kitten and had 15 wonderful years with him. She tells all sorts of stories about her life with Oreo and how he made her life better. Caralee writes about the last of Oreo’s life and how leaning on her faith helps her get through this terrible loss.
This is an awesome read about the love between a woman and the cat who was her child. I definitely think if you’re going to read this you better have kleenex handy. I absolutely loved this one. 5 stars isn’t enough for this heartwarming remembrance of a beloved member of the family.
