Four years after the bloody Boxer Rebellion of 1900, the wounded lands of China had grown resentful of all things Western. Known as ‘The Middle Kingdom’ to the Chinese people, their capital city was no place for a lone Scotsman.

David was born and raised in the Scottish Highlands where he spends his days enjoying his family, the affections of his true love, Rose, and having an after-dinner drink with friends. Life is good in the brisk-green hillsides of David’s beloved Scotland.

But David’s life takes a sharp turn when he discovers his fiancée sleeping with a relative, leaving David brokenhearted and anxious to follow a recent vision compelling him to the exotic and faraway country known as The Middle Kingdom where the answers to his questions lie.

David sets out on an arduous voyage over land and sea in his search for closure. His aching-heart is the least of his trials when his journey becomes a dangerous quest, encountering pirates, bandits, and a bevy of lusty ladies with questionable motives.

Fighting to keep body and soul intact so that he may realize his predestined purpose, David struggles to reach The Middle Kingdom, or die in the trying.

Our Client, and Author Charity Barger


Charity Barger  was fifteen when she decided she wanted to be actress, a writer and a lawyer.  It seems like a long impossible list, but she was determined.  And since that day, she has worked in front of and behind the camera.  She  fulfilled her dreams of being an actress and somewhere in the middle found herself in the position as a PA, assistant production coordinator, production coordinator,  and then finally producer.   She  has written several screenplays including the one for the movie which she  produced.  As a writer, she  started out publishing a book of poetry, then went onto writing several children’s stories for Innovations for Learning.  Then, she realized her dream of publishing her first novel, “The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory,”  followed by her second novel, “A Tendency Towards Love.”  So, what else could she then to pursue her  goal of being a lawyer.  She is  currently a full-time student with my eyes fixed on the realities of law school.  I guess at fifteen she really did  know exactly what she wanted from her amazing life.   The Author’s personal accomplishments are admirable, and Charity Barger’s  humble disposition, kind heart and unassuming outlook on life; despite all of her life’s achievements thus far, are nothing short of  exemplary.

Everyone who has gone through it during the 60’s, and experienced life as a freshman will recall those days vividly in memory.

For the most part we do survive it all, and the benefits are to be reaped if we are conducive to making positive change within ourselves.

This great book makes for a wonderful read which will provide moments of ‘Déjà Vu’ reminiscent of stinging nettles, or elated and triumphant memories. A well written fiction work based on true life’s experiences, “My Teenage Life: Freshman Year, provides not only authenticity but realism echoing true in all cultural backgrounds, when it comes to our formative years spent at school , which takes up about a good 1/3 portion of our adolescent growing-up-years. The sentiments this story touches on don’t only apply to our American cultural traditions but runs parallel with countries across the globe. After all, teenagers and college students alike and irrespective of background or nationality; share similar experiences and emotional rollercoasters the world over.

“Believe me; you are going to find out just how strong you truly are.”

Words of warning…words that come horribly true for a lonely, misunderstood young woman in a way that no-one could have ever believed possible. Plunged from a sheltered life of privilege into a nightmarish magic world, hunted and pursued by a terrifying foe whose very name is a byword for evil, she must find the strength and the knowledge to save not just herself but countless others…and the courage to face her past as well as her future.

Unclaimed Throne Alison Dormaar

Overview: “The Unclaimed Throne”

“Be careful what you wish for. You may just get it.”

For Auryn, a brilliant and unusually gifted young woman born into the ignorant and troubled world of the Dark Ages, these words have a particular meaning. Although she is born a princess into a sheltered life of privilege and wealth, Auryn is unhappily aware that she is an unwanted youngest daughter, especially when her parents had so desperately craved a son and heir. Regarded as strange and plain by most people, her social awkwardness, reclusive ways, and superior intellect are gravely misunderstood by her peers, who only see in her royal marriage potential. Finally, Auryn is forced into a hateful and loveless betrothal by her scheming father to his ambitious but cruel and uncouth neighbor, King Horan. Appalled by her fate, Auryn’s desperate desire for escape and self-discovery comes true in a way she had never thought possible…to read more about this amazing and enthralling epic – purchase a copy.
