The Death and Life of Aida Hernandez

What happens when an undocumented teen mother takes on the U.S. immigration system? When Aida Hernandez was born in 1987 in Agua Prieta, Mexico, the nearby U.S. border was little more than a worn-down fence. Eight years later, Aida’s mother took her and her siblings to live in Douglas, Arizona. By then, the border had become one of the most heavily policed sites in America. Undocumented, Aida fought to make her way. She learned English, watched Friends, and, after having a baby at sixteen, dreamed of teaching dance and moving with her son to New York City. But life had other plans. Following a misstep that led to her deportation, Aida found herself in a Mexican city marked by violence, in ...

Plague of the Dead

The end begins with a viral outbreak unlike anything mankind as ever encountered before. The infected are subject to delirium, fever, a dramatic increase in violent behavior, and a one-hundred percent mortality rate? Death. But it doesn't end there. The victims return from death to walk the earth. When a massive military operation fails to contain the plague of the living dead it escalates into a global pandemic. In one fell swoop, the necessities of life become much more basic. Gone are petty everyday concerns. Gone are the amenities of civilized life. Yet a single law of nature remains: Live, or die. Kill, or be killed. On one side of the world, a battle-hardened General surveys the remnants of his command: a young medic, a veteran photographer, a brash Private, and dozens of refugees, all are his responsibility--all thousands of miles from home. Back in the United States, an Army Colonel discovers the darker side of Morningstar virus and begins to collaborate with a well-known journalist to leak the information out to the public... The Morningstar Saga has begun.

Is immortality within our grasp? Has medical science finally cracked the code to the affliction known as aging? John Abrams, director of YouthCorp, is sure of it. His company is set to begin human trials on an elixir with just such a goal. But, as with any new scientific breakthrough, there are bound to be setbacks. The implausible identification of a withered old woman, found dying near the research facility, prompts a powerful senator to initiate an investigation. The senator solicits the services of David Stryker, a well-known, though unconventional, freelance investigator. Stryker’s analysis of the mysterious circumstances surrounding the woman’s death leads him to team up with a lost love and discover the workings of an industry known as anti-aging medicine. Before long, the two find themselves immersed in a dangerous world of industrial spies, mercenaries, and terrorists. Little do they know that their fate, the fate of the country, and perhaps the fate of the world, lies in the balance.

Death Was Not an Option!

On December 18, 2009, Marcy Layman woke up to excruciating abdominal pain, and I rushed her to Swedish Emergency in Issaquah, Washington.

This journal will take you on a two-year spiritual, medical, nutritional, emotional, and, in some cases, humorous journey while we were finding stronger love and friendship between ourselves and the search for a cure for this insidious disease. Marcys courageous fight against thi...
