Gotta Find a Home 2: More Conversations with Street People by [Cardiff, Dennis]

Gotta Find a Home 2: More Conversations with Street People

by Dennis Cardiff

This book continues the conversations from Book 1. Find out how these characters have fared since you last read about them.

Writing about the homeless and helping the homeless, has given my life a purpose that it didn’t have before. Documenting their stories will, I hope, introduce them to the public in a non-threatening way.

Some panhandlers look intimidating, but that disappears when one sees them laugh. A typical day for me involves taking the bus and walking two blocks to work. I pass Joy’s spot every day. I usually sit and talk with her for twenty to thirty minutes. Chester and Hippo may drop by to chat.

Most afternoons, depending on weather, I walk two blocks to the park where the group of panhandlers varies in size from two to twenty or more. They don’t panhandle at the park. Like a soap opera, every day is different; some scenarios will carry over a few days or weeks. People will disappear for weeks or months due illness, rehab programs or incarceration.

When I met Joy I was going through an emotional crisis. Meeting her and her friends – worrying about them and whether or not they would be able to eat and find a place to sleep – took my mind off my problems, that then, seemed insignificant. It was – is – truly a life changing experience.

Author of the Week! Dani Haviland

Dani Haviland

Dani Haviland

A Mayflower and Mormon pioneer descendant, recently semi-retired from selling tractor parts, tools, and roses in Alaska, relocating to a more temperate climate in western Oregon to pursue her passions: writing, gardening, and photography.

Her tenacious and perky attitude is reflected in many of her cyber children, whether they be a British lord stuck in 18th century North Carolina or a 6’7″ time traveling ‘fairy’ who is out to champion anyone who is having a rough time dealing with difficult life situations.

The Fairies Saga (4 Book Series) by  Dani Haviland

The Fairies Saga (4 Book Series)

From Book 1: HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO LIVE IN A DIFFERENT TIME, IN A DIFFERENT BODY, AND AS PART OF YOUR FAVORITE ROMANCE NOVEL?
She awoke in a different time, in an unfamiliar body, and not knowing who she was.
Find out how ‘Evie’ got there in the first book of The Fairies Saga series.
A mix of mystery, history, and fantasy, with a tad of romance, a dash of violence, and a pinch of humor. ‘These characters will live in your head long after you’ve read the books.’ (common remark by readers)

Imagine falling right into the middle of your favorite historical romance story…and getting a thinner, rejuvenated body at the same time. That might sound ideal, but dealing with cougars, creeps, and kidnappers isn’t.
Join 20th century-born Evie as she deals with the hardships of living in the backwoods or Revolutionary War era North Carolina while dealing with a severe case of AMNESIA, being ABANDONED by the man who claimed her as his wife, and ADOPTIONS, using nothing but her wit and grit, give or take a knife or two…and the smartphone that hitched a ride with her from the 21st century!

THE FAIRIES SAGA ~ Time travelers: fairies, according to the auld folk, people who suddenly showed up in strange clothes, confused about where they were, and without friends or family. Fairies either kept quiet and adapted to their new time period…or went insane.

The Chronicles of Travelstead: Coven of Ashwood  Falls by [Frazier, Sadie K.]

The Chronicles of Travelstead: Coven of Ashwood Falls

by Sadie K. Frazier

Man-made weapons are sometimes used as façade, to assuage those who would not understand one important truth; that all battles ultimately are fought not with the handle of the sword or by the power of indomitable strength alone, but by the controlling of the rampant thoughts running through one’s own mind.

Diabolical specters schemed in their secret quarters in the garret above, and the fiercely determined foursome devised a plan to vanquish and destroy the abhorrent Lords of the night, as the vestibule below came alive with a conglomeration of gruesome and perplexing creatures of the night.

Join Travelstead, the gothic warrior from another realm, and his unconventional entourage as they fight the battle of their lives and souls against a secret Coven of Witches lurking in the dark, ancient cobblestone passages of the town of Ashwood Falls
