The Miracle of EDSA is a story of a mother’s love, a people’s struggle for freedom, and the many Miracles which took place at a time of both near-civil war and religious devotion. When Leigh Jackson, a beautiful Filipina-American nurse, is told by her sister that the child she thought died at birth is still alive, a grown man, she travels back to the Philippines in search of her son.
Her ex-lover, Dan, comes back into her life, and they rekindle a passionate love affair. Miguel, the fierce guerrilla leader, makes Leigh an unwilling part of his small band, where she nurses the sick, but must also fight for her life in hand-to-hand combat. General Navarro, Leigh’s evil antagonist, causes her and countless others to suffer torture in his infamous dungeons. Virgil, Leigh’s heroic young nephew, who believes that prayer can stop tanks, leads the non-violent resistance to the government. Marci and Paulita are courageous women freedom fighters who prove that not only men can risk death in a great cause.
This powerful tale of miracles great and small is based upon real events that took place during the Filipino people’s uprising against tyranny. As Leigh searches for a second chance at motherhood, and a renewal of the deep love she and Dan had once known, she learns to fight, to survive, and most importantly of all, to believe. The result of her quest is a symbol of peace and redemption in the midst of war.

Faithful to His Call by Terry Marr is the story of how a young woman, her husband, and her children came to carry out the purpose that God had for them. Terry Marr felt the presence of God from an early age. She knew that the Lord had a plan for her life, and she strove to be alert to His messages and to be ready when He called. There is a void in the life of many people which school, work, material success, even loved ones and friends do not fill. Through this powerful and frank story of her own Call and her Response, the author presents a way to become spiritually fulfilled, for those who are seeking meaning, and for those who may not yet know how empty their lives have become.
Terry Marr’s relationship with God is an intensely personal and dynamic one. In turn, she has ministered to others in the same loving and personal way. As her husband and pastor, L.C. Marr, Jr. says, “This is a book about the birthing of a relationship with God, about visions and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but mostly it’s about recognizing and appreciating the presence of God.” Not all readers will be able to follow exactly in Terry Marr’s footsteps…each person has his or her own unique gifts and contribution to bring to the world. But every reader will find inspiration and hope in her story, and the courage and incentive to find the way to be Faithful to His Call.

Flash: Lyla Allen, Author of Red Clay Tastes Like Chalk, has been awarded an Honorable Mention for her novel by the national magazine Writer’s Digest Self-Published Books Contest for 2002. Her book was among the top ten of 370 entries in the Self-Published Fiction Category.
The following article was published by a monthly magazine called The Law. It was printed in London around August 1890:
“Women make up half of any nation. No plan of national significance will move forward unless women are consulted. The potential of a woman, aware of her human essence, is to serve in the progress of her society and is equivalent to that of 100 men.
There are many cases of distinguished women surpassing men solely because of their abilities to reason and their wisdom. Their understanding of society’s meaning and privileges is far greater than men’s.”
No Peace can ever be a lasting Peace in the Middle East without full participation of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim women at the negotiating tables.
Colonel William Edwards’ Twin Vendetta is a fast-paced tale that moves from the fall of France in World War II to Allied military operations in North Africa, Sicily and Italy, then to clandestine intelligence activities behind enemy lines in France and Germany. It is the story of a young French/Canadian woman’s insurmountable problems in avenging the strafing death of her twin brother by the German Luftwaffe. And it brings out the secret thoughts of a young American man who has taken up the call-to-arms to salve guilt feelings that have overwhelmed him by his German father’s Nazi activities.
The protagonists complement one another as a “two-man” team of Spitfire fighter pilots in combat against German Messerschmitt fighter planes in support of Allied ground operations. Colonel Edwards highlights some of the most profound fighter and fighter-bomber combat of World War II in the Allied war effort against Hitler’s military forces in North Africa, Sicily and Italy. It is also the story of her bittersweet first love with them both fearing the revelation of their innermost thoughts and identities.
She is finally unmasked during treatment for near-fatal wounds, then learns of his secret life when they travel together to war-time Germany on a critical espionage mission. This novel challenges the author’s story-telling gift from beginning to end, and he is up to the challenge.
