ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Shawna Ryan pic.

Shawna Ryan, a wonderful and very special  human being writes about what she knows.  Ever consistent and unwavering in her approach to her work, and somewhat of a perfectionist until she gets it 100% perfect, perhaps an attribute and acquired skill whilst learning the disciplines studying for her law degree, has produced another wonderful literary creation in the form of her “KINGDOM Series project, and certainly deserves to be read.

 

Shawna Ryan was born and raised in the Northwest, United States.   After obtaining her law degree, she was a corporate attorney and a trial attorney. She retired from practice so she would have time to write. She has always been interested in the philosophies of religion and enjoys researching and writing about the histories behind them. She is a descendant of Catholics, Mormons, Methodists, Baptists, and other Protestants and tries to be both critical and objective about them all.

 

The inspirations for the research that led to the  “KINGDOM” project were Shawna’s great grandmothers, who converted to Mormonism in 1854 and who were among the first European converts to immigrate to Utah. Some of the anecdotes on which KINGDOM was based are theirs.

 

It gives us therefore great pleasure in proudly being able to present Shawna Ryan to readership not only in the USA, but globally.  As Shawna is not new to writing and has already achieved to produce a very compelling Trilogy which has drawn some very positive critique from appreciative quarters.  The  “KINGDOM” series  is Shawna’s  fourth thriller.   She is also the author of  Destiny’s Damned, Satan’s Scat, and Triumvirate of the Damned, a thriller trilogy. 

Douglas Preston, author of Blasphemy,  et. al. said of the trilogy:  “Destiny Damned “ series by Shawna Ryan is an outstanding trilogy — shocking and fast-paced, full of interesting characters, twists, turns and surprises.  I  highly recommend it.”   The ForeWord CLARION Reviews said that Triumvirate of  the Damned is a multi-layered story that surpasses the predictable formulaic  religious conspiracy thrillers that currently glut the market.”

Patricia Harrington, Mystery author, said: In Satan’s Scat, the second book in Shawna Ryan’s thriller trilogy, the author continues the page turner pace she established in Destiny’s Damned.  ForeWord CLARION Reviews said of the trilogy:  “Despite the immediate similarities to the works of Dan Brown, Ryan has created a truly thrilling and entertaining series that is as original and insightful as anything in the genre.”

In researching the material for “KINGDOM”, Shawna utilized her skills as an attorney.  The inspirations for the research that led to “KINGDOM” were her  great grandmothers, who converted to Mormonism in 1854 and who were among the first European converts to immigrate to Utah. Some of the anecdotes on which  “KINGDOM” Series was based are theirs.

We have included a Synopsis (below) for your attention, and Author Biography, as well as a Chapter Summary as per attachment.  We are able to provide you with a copy of the  completed manuscript upon your request.

 

We urge all discerning readers of fine books offering suspense, tension and thrills, and a birdseye view into the lives of the characters the “KINGDOM Series Book One & Two embraces, to purchase a copy without delay.

Mormon Fundamentalists are fulfilling their Prophet’s dream: – slicing a Kingdom out of the United States.

 

To build its Kingdom, the Church demands its men murder and torture men, women and children of all religions, even its own. Mormon priests require from Church members complete and utter obedience to every order they issue. The penalty for refusal is torture and death. The Mormons openly claim as their territory most of the United State territories west of the Rocky Mountains. They threaten and abuse Federal officials and judges. They drive out Gentiles.

 

The Mormons declare war on the United States and President Buchanan sends an army against them. To ensure the loyalty of Church members, the Church conducts a reign of terror against its members, reorganizing a group of vigilante murderers they once called the Sons of Dan to ritually kill anyone who disobeys or is disloyal. The revived Sons of Dan murder Gentiles as well.

Requiring their men to murder men, women and children, including their own, for salvation, the Mormons plot to fulfill their Prophet’s dream: – to slice a Kingdom of their own out of the United States

 

In the present: Wayne has developed the protocol for achieving their Prophet’s dream. Yet his co-conspirators ritually murder him and kidnap his wife, Kim. Kim’s sister, attorney Sharon Marshall, hunts for them with Alex Caldwell, a New York Post investigative reporter, and Kevin James, an authority on mythology. The only object stolen from Wayne and Kim’s house is an urn with Egyptian hieroglyphics. The only clue to their disappearances is a gold medallion Wayne was hiding, even from Kim.

Hank Blanchard, a Gentile friend of Wayne’s, is attacked by one of the fundamentalists. He stabs his attacker, is jailed for it, and is murdered in his cell. As Sharon, Alex and Kevin search for Wayne and Kim, they, too, are hunted.

“KINGDOM” Book Two

By Shawna Ryan

Published by Solstice Shadows.

 

“Interweaving 1850s Utah with various present-day locales, this sequel continues the bloody back story of religious extremists as they battle to create the 21st century’s “perfect” race. Combining all the tropes of mainstream action-adventure, this book delivers a bloody fusillade of murder, betrayal, historically rooted agendas, and contemporary political corruption. Part Clive Cussler, part Michael Crichton, with just a dash of Thomas Harris….”Kirkus Reviews

Our Client, and Author Terry Farricker

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Photo author page

 

Terry Farricker, an up and coming very talented UK Author, has lots to offer our readers partial to literature set in the supernatural realm.

As in Terry’s own words during an interview, he was born on the outskirts of Manchester in the UK in 1965. As he came into the world mankind was again showing the heights to which our worldly progress and development can aspire as Soviet cosmonaut Aleksei Leonov became the first man to walk in space, and the depths to which it all too often falls, as the first combat troops arrived in Vietnam.

 

The Author was educated in an ordinary secondary school and was a spectacularly average student.  His only real ability seeming to lie in his propensity towards writing. So he thus began to write.  He remembers thinking from an early age, what a wonderful thing it would be to compose a story using nothing more than a pen, a sheet of paper and his imagination, and then have someone read it and actually be affected by it.

 

That maxim still holds true for Terry today, and is the single most motivating factor in his life.  This motivation and determination was reinforced by reading a quote from Alan Alda, Be brave enough to live creatively. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can only get there by hard work, by risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful: Yourself

 

So, ludicrously, the Author relates, he began work in the financial sector.  He still functions  in that field today; although each day he finds himself drifting between the mundane reality of his profession, but in the hope that, one day he will count himself among the celebrities literary achiever as a full time author; and one who can actually boast procuring a living from purely just writing his books.

 

The greatest achievement in the Author’s  life is being a father to his cherished son. and maintains that his child is his inspiration; his consolation through disenchantment, the antidote to disillusionment and the reason he is still able to smile at disappointment.

He awoke on his forty-fifth birthday with the idea for a book. The premise was given him during a dream he explained, by one of the protagonists in the story and almost related to the Author page by page.     He sat at his PC the next morning and mused, I’m not a writer! I can’t write a book!  Some measure self doubt that crept in and so often assails many new authors when embarking on a writing career.  Nevertheless, not swayed by that momentary twinge of self doubt, Terry started writing regardless. And the strange thing is, each time he finished another segment he simply closed his eyes and found himself sat in a cinema, watching the next section of his book unfolding before his mind’s eye.

 

Four years and four books later the Author is still sat in that cinema watching his stories unfold, and told us that as yet, he has nothing to show for this adventure.  But curiously, he feels still now that does not seem to be the point. The point appears to be, as Mr Alda said, being brave enough to live creatively, leaving that city of your comfort, going into the wilderness of your intuition, risking not quite knowing what you are doing and, ultimately, discovering that something wonderful, yourself.

 

We are thankful that Terry Farricker revealed himself, and came out of his hiding place.  His first book “SPAWN OF MAN” – Rebirth, in the Series of 2 more sequels planned (Book 2 now completed) and waiting to go into print in the not so distant future as a publishing contract was secured for him recently.

 

We are proud to count Terry Farricker as one among our numerous clientele.  We believe that Terry’s books may well present as suitable film material, the representation of which we will be discussing with the Author once the complete series of “Spawn of Man” books are published and for readers to enjoy.

Our Client, and Author Consuella Harris

Consuella Harris headshot

Category: Destined for Literature & Film

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

Consuella Harris, was born on January 13, 1947, one of five children.  She was raised in Washington, D. C.  After completing high school, Consuella was offered a typist position with the local telephone company.  At nineteen the Author got married and moved to Cleveland, Oho.  She had one daughter born on January 1, 1967.  After living in Cleveland for three years, in 1970 her husband was offered a position in Washington, D. C., so they relocated back to my hometown.

While in Cleveland, Consuella began her writing journey, and wrote satire articles on race relations in America.  After six years working in secretarial positions which the Author did not consider find satisfying to boost her natural sense of creativity, realized that she wanted more meaningful work that would offer her a sense of achievement in progress.  For the next six years Consuella began seeking a professional position and undertook college courses, however, she didn’t have a degree which made her feel somewhat lacking in her journey towards the great goals she had set for herself.   In 1970, the Author was offered the opportunity to train for a position as a contract monitor.  Subsequently, over the next thirteen years, she held various positions and accepted a position in Human Resources in the area of Classification.

She divorced my husband when her daughter was eight and began raising her child as a single parent.  Based on professional and management courses and supplemental college courses, Consuella was promoted to her first management job in 1980, and worked as the Administrator for Community correctional programs and retired as a Human Resource Director for the City of Greenbelt in Maryland.

In 1975, Consuella was asked to write an original play for presentation in the Maryland Bicentennial Celebration in 1976.  She wrote the Play, entitled “Invisible, But I Am Somebody.”  The play was produced by a local County Community College.  In 1980, Consuella saw a television show on the 60-Minute series about surrogate mothers, and this inspired her greatly to write more about this very, if at that time, controversial subject.  Thus was born the book, The Surrogates.

Over the years, Consuella attended Lincoln University, still keen to achieve her dreams and aspiration to undertake higher education levels, and obtained a Master’s Degree in Human Services, and graduated in 1991.  We here at the Agency are kind of astounded by the perseverance, aim of purpose and the tenacity of the Author, to never distance herself far from her aspirations to achieve the highest levels of learning, but despite the convoluted labyrinth her life’s journey took, along with her gains and losses, ups and downs, nevertheless did achieve what she’d set out to do, not leaving ‘age’ stand in her way.  I have been greatly inspired by this wonderful lady.    Through several rewrites, many edits, the book has remained her primary focus.  We imagine we will see more books planned on this amazing subject by Consuella.

Today, Consuella is still as devoted to this story subject now published, as she was in 1980.  Today, I’m fortunate to be the mother of one, Grandmother of five children, and Great Grandmother.

 

ABOUT THE BOOK – “THE SURROGATES”

Once the information about their births is revealed to them, it sets in motion events none had anticipated. The investigation into these families, their lives, and those behind the events changes everything they believe. Yet, there is still a murderer on the loose, unless the intrepid investigator can bring that person to justice.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Manichand Photo image 2

 

Manichand Beharilal is a fulltime author.  He was born in Umzinto on the Kwazulu-Natal south coast in South Africa in 1960 and grew up in Springfield, Durban.

 

He is an in-demand motivational speaker and also facilitates Creative Writing Workshops and Reading Empowerment Seminars.  His hobbies include Indian music, stamp collecting, holy scriptures and ancient civilizations.

 

He is married to Reena and has four children and resides in Zakariyya Park, south of Johannesburg,

 

His writing is a dedication to the children of South Africa.

 

The Author is also fully focussed and devoted to ensuring that the Nelson Mandela Project he requested we represent on his behalf here in the West, will not only stay published solely in Africa only, but  also to see the titles of the Nelson Mandela books in the series enjoyed globally, by both young and old.  The author put this series and all his other books together as an educational learning tool, to also bring about a means to a cultural exchange of concepts, and familiarization tool for readers everywhere.  In other words we aim to see that Manichand’s wishes to land a contract with a Publisher in the West, who will become instrumental in International distribution of this wonderful and heartwarming series about Nelson Mandela is accomplished.  So as in Mandela’s very own words  “progress can only be achieved through struggle”.  We would like more readers to learn about Nelson Mandela’s own struggle, in exchange to seeing the fruition of this enigmatic leader’s unwavering and selfless ‘dream’ for his country and its people – and for which he well and truly paid the hefty price, dearly.

 

How true these words resonate and confirm in a sense that, indeed, our species were condemned to ‘toil in tears, and still continues to bear their struggles and hardships’ to which we were consigned and condemned from the time of man’s very humble beginnings.   But evermore with a predestined purpose of aim,  to learn  hard lessons along the way throughout man’s history.  Yet be handed the opportunity by divine Providence, to make the right, and free choices with our ‘conscious-given’ talent that does set us apart from the animal world, our gifted companions to caretake.   To mould and make this progressive world of ours into a better place in which we might all co-exist in peaceful cohabitation.    Indeed, could this task and rather tall order ever be achieved by mankind alone, I wonder?  Only ‘time’ and human progress, and social development in a positive direction, will be witness of that.   Even if not in our own lifetime right now.

 

However, that defeatest train of thought entertained by some that, the struggle towards positive change, may not be worth the effort of the outcome.  It neither reflects or nurtures any confidence in our humanity to think like that, and indeed as history has shown; what we are all truly capable of if we focus and  design our minds unwaveringly, and on procuring to fruition certain philanthropic goals in life that could change the way we cohabit, as a race of many diverse cultures.  Even to the point of sacrificing our very freedom for those ‘ideals’ which we are entertaining and seeking –  or more importantly to pay the expensive price of giving up our precious life; in exchange of what may seemingly still prove a somewhat premature and elusive  ‘dream’.    Certainly refraining from a defeatest attitude, or maintaining that it is all much ‘too hard’ to turn a seemingly unattainable quest into reality many seem to adopt, is neither testimonial to our Lord and great Prophet of all time, Jesus Christ himself.  Who was just one man, who managed to single-handedly change the course of history with  a most profound and very real, yet ‘unearthly’ ordained impact.

 

So we believe that one humble man, or one humble woman – has it in their power to move mountains, impact on  changing the way the masses think,  act and function about so numerous issues that continue to plague and befall our species dangerously locked into their conventions of the day; from generation to successive generations.

 

Manichand is fully focussed presently on writing his educational and cultural awareness books, which pages are endowed with the most wonderful graphics, to be enjoyed by the young people of his beloved country.  But with an aim to disseminating the beauty of his well written words of the titles currently published, and books yet to be planned for and written, towards global distribution.    We shall aim to do our very best for the author, in seeing this successfully accomplished.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

Jean Guy 1

What an amazing man is Jean Jacques.  So funny and so entertaining, a man of the world and a Hollywood Veteran, Jean Jacques will be providing us with many more entertaining literary projects.    This man has at times managed to keep me sane and smiling, just when the doctor ordered it.  Busy and overwhelmed with much Agency work, Jean Jacques has on many an occasion uplifted my spirits in my darkest hour.  I will always welcome and thank him for his support.

 

Jean Jacques was born in Quebec City, a charming little town in Canada. It’s 1930, during the great depression. He had a feeling something was wrong out there, and really didn’t want to leave his mother’s womb, so he turned his little body around and became a breech baby.  Duh?  Lol!   Jean Guy had an eight-year-old brother who was his senior sibling in rank; he sadly just left the planet a year ago, but we’re sure he is looking down on our world with some optimism, glad he is not longer part of the turmoil.

 

Jean Jacques is now eighty-one year’s young but to be fair he looks about sixty five and very sexy, and still acts like a school boy.  At least he told us that is what his friends tell him, but I can vouche for that truth, as Jean Jacques keeps me young and standing on my toes at attention with his funny, adolescent ways.

 

His Father was a Barber, and his mother a housewife – taking on the most difficult of professions of all. The author attended a Catholic School run by the Christian Brothers, (and in Jean’s own words were ‘a bunch of pedophiles’)  Ooooh!  and feels they wasted 10 years of his early life.  He maintains he didn’t learn a crumb; and Religion had no place in his world.  Being artistically driven and minded, and very naturally talented, but above all very precocious, always demanded  ‘proof’, so was always asking the type of questions that would render any clergyman uncomfortable or drive him out of his comfort zone – and I wonder why???  And sure enough as Jean  always anticipated they would come back with... “You have to believeeeee.”

 

Well, Jean Jacques explained, he simply didn’t. But he did have ‘faith’ in his own endeavors, and attended Art school on the weekends. At sixteen years of age he started to work as a Window Trimmer for a big Department store being paid a salary and the modest sum of around  $12 weekly. Four years later he his income had risen to around $25 a week.  Due to the economic circumstances of the era Jean Jacques was made redundant along with so many other workers, and got himself a job as a chauffeur driving a friend around, (a traveling salesman), who had been badly injured and couldn’t drive a car.  Jean Jacques loved the job, and it gave him the opportunity to  travel all over the Province.  Some time later he applied for another position with Lever Bros. At the time he was hired by that company he was already 21 years old.   He also benefited much by the  great on the job training he received.  All of a sudden he told us, he is a soap salesman, which made us laugh heartily.   However, (as they say on US infomercials…”but that’s not all” he was paid $60 a week for his services on the job,  which included the use of a company car…and what’s more… that came with all expenses paid, wow…what a jump.

 

Sadly, his makeup and sense of the adventurous, Jean Jacques simply did not find the job terribly inspiring, save, keeping himself sparkling clean and smelling of soap, and soon found out that selling soap was not ordained in his special destiny.  Next, Canadian Breweries happen to be looking for an ‘Art Counselor’.  The author quit his job with Lever Bros. and went to work for Carling Black Label Beer, at a whopping salaried increase of some $160 a week, company car inclusive and all expenses paid.  It was clear that the ‘gods’ were looking out for him guiding him up the ladder to good fortune.  Jacques really loved this job, and provided the travelling opportunity, which would always give him a sense of true ‘freedom’, finding him visiting all over his beloved Province.  As time progressed Carling Black Label Beer company changed company policy, stipulating that their Counselors become sales people, selling the product, a job description requirement.   This was not for Jean Jacques and promptly left the security of a job that could probably have led him far up the ladder.

That’s when Jean Jacques decided to use his talents and took up the study of animation in California.  It is now 1957 and he finds himself in Los Angeles learning his new trade at Chouinard Art Institute.  In 1960 he began working for  John Urie and Associates, a TV Commercials Studio. At the beginning we were three people, ten years later the studio grew up to sixty employees. That was the greatest job anyone could ever have asked for.  Now in his chosen niche of Animation Director, his job responsibilities also involved editing, costuming, set design, make-up, live action, stop-motion, special effects, photographer, writer and actor.   You name it, Jean Jacques did it.

 

From there on he became involved in directing,  acting, and wrote many award winning short subject films. What a life that was. In 1970 Jean Jacques started his own Commercial studio.  In 1990 he ventured to Taiwan to direct and supervise an animation show. Back to Los Angeles, got divorced from his first wife, and married Helene. (a beautiful Taiwanese gal), and in  1992 moved to Montreal to direct two TV series for Sesame Workshop, “Bad Dog” and “Sagwa The Chinese Siamese Cat” written by Amy Tan. After Sept 11 the shows were cancelled so they moved to Provence, where he worked for some French Studio for a while, and wrote another screenplay. In 2009 he  moved to Shanghai, where an old friend gave Helene a Landscaping Design job. Now his lovely wife has started a new business, teaching Italian and French Cuisine to Chinese ladies, and they’ve decided to film all the segments, and produce the show  on the internet. In the meantime Jean Jacques is full on  writing more of his amazing, and mostly humorously based novels, and loving it.

That’s a short recap.  But wait till he’s completed writing his riveting autobiography, but we shall keep you in the loop when that goes to print.

A daring work superbly presented by talented Author Jean Jacques in his usual uniquely form, makes for a blowing hilarious read!”  But do not be misled!  The tale has some thought provoking, sinister and serious undertones!

Overview – Synopsis

Heinrich Himmler started a program called ‘Lebensborn’ in a little village near Munich,
Aryan women came here to be impregnated by a selected group of SS officers.

They would then give the Aryan babies to designated German families. To reach their goal, they kidnaped thousands of blond blue-eyed Polish children, Germanized them, gave them German names, and assigned the children to elite German household.

‘The Baby Factory’ is inspired in part by Himmler’s Lebensborn program. The story is about the discovery of and attack on a Los Angeles based, secret and demonic organization, ‘The Genesis Society’. Their goal, like Himmler, attempting to resurrect the Aryan race on a grand scale in America.  Stevie, an African-American investigative journalist is writing an exposé on Hollywood prostitutes.

Genesis Society agents kidnap Margie, a young blond blue-eyed prostitute who happens to be the star of Stevie’s story.

With the help of his buddy Eric, an LAPD detective, they go to her rescue. Will they make it in time to save her?

“When I first saw this book it seemed like a weird idea. That’s because it IS a weird idea, but somehow I kept reading and reading. It’s a cross between Charles Bukowski, George Orwell, Quentin Tarantino and The Comedy Store. Sometimes the descriptions have a screenplay feel, but that’s probably one of the ways the book blows off standard categories. It was written by a guy named Jean Jacques from the corner of Vine and Apocalypse, or somewhere, and his bad dream is so convincing, street-slangy and savvy and no holds barred, that the dream starts to seem realer than real… Thing is, it IS real, Himmler lives and we know it, and “never again” is a feel-good mantra to erase our guilt. This book brings us face to face with some seriously hard stuff …. but Jacques is some kind of pulp poet and street prophet and funny guy and turns his weird cautionary tale or allegory or whatever it is into a kind of… okay, hilarious tragic romp, I don’t know what else to call it. Read it and see.”
