Every woman buries secrets. Even from herself.

Lizzie, Grace, Sassie, and Ruby — four friends who laugh together, cry together, and keep each other together through life's Oys & Joys. Until the tragic consequences of a decades' old betrayal put their friendships to the ultimate test.

A captivating tale about the power of steel-laced friendships and the challenges time harbors.

Four vividly drawn women, intimately familiar and impossible to forget, shuttle back and forth in time, between menopause and youthful heartbreak, middle-age crises and the dramas of life, death, and self-reinvention.

A page turner you will not be able to put down.

Their journey, seasoned with their hearts and souls and abundant humor, includes attempted murder (oops), DNA surprises (it happens), and unexpected sexual awakenings (yes, at any age). Oh, and then there's the pole dancing for seniors.

Four women who define their moment by revisiting their past to embrace their future.

The Oys & Joys–a touching and absorbing story about secrets never dying quietly. About unlocking truth and defeating regret.

DESCRIPTION:

“Patrick Redmond weaves an intriguing tale of bigotry, religion, murder, and personal redemption in small-town America. He has the authentic voice of a born storyteller.”
Jonathan Odell, author of Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League

Some Go Hungry is a charming, well-paced, and thoroughly humane love story about a young gay man coming to terms with himself, his family, and the insular community in which the family’s restaurant has been central for more than forty years.”
Susan Scarf Merrell, author of Shirley

Part of Akashic’s Kaylie Jones Books imprint.

Some Go Hungry is a fictional account drawn from the author’s own experiences working in his family’s provincial Indiana restaurant–and wrestling with his sexual orientation–in a town that was rocked by the scandalous murder of his gay high school classmate in the 1980s.

Now a young man who has embraced his sexuality, Grey Daniels returns from Miami Beach, Florida, to Fort Sackville, Indiana, to run Daniels’ Family Buffet for his ailing father. Understanding that knowledge of his sexuality may reap disastrous results on his family’s half-century-old restaurant legacy–a popular Sunday dinner spot for the after-church crowd–Grey struggles to live his authentic, openly gay life. He is put to the test when his former high school lover–and fellow classmate of the murdered student–returns to town as the youth pastor and choir director of the local fundamentalist Christian church.

Some Go Hungry is the story of a man forced to choose between the happiness of others and his own joy, all the while realizing that compromising oneself–sacrificing your soul for the sake of others–is not living, but death.

As an Observer, Seth is tasked with identifying the lost before they fall victim to the Discordant. An unenviable job under normal circumstances, but the situation takes a turn for the worse when Blackbird’s Guardian calls it quits and no new Guardian is available to take her place. Instead, Seth now finds himself partnered with Desmond, a powerful and intimidating Warrior, who worries that Seth will give in to the lure of Chaos. Desmond’s fears are all but validated when a magical disturbance draws even more Discordant to the area. Among them is Amara, a dangerous and nearly invincible femme fatale from Seth’s past.

To stop her, Seth must sacrifice his own soul or put all of his faith in a psychic’s vague prediction. But without a Guardian, both the Observer and Warrior are at a disadvantage and time is running out.

What’s new? Me, for starters… It all began when my job offered me a buyout package. That’s when the realization hit: I’m young, I’m rich (thanks to a hefty inheritance), and I’m boring. Things are gonna change-starting now… Building a better man trap… First things first: Exercise. Carrot juice. Straight hair. Whiter teeth. Clothes that fit. But wait-there’s more. I’m finally ready to take a chance on love with the perfect guy. He’s handsome. He’s smart. He’s reliable. He’s my CPA. Problem is, I’m clueless about winning him over. It’s time to call in an expert. It’s time to call in The Dog. Down, boy. Mike “The Dog” Dougherty is a man’s man. A guy’s guy. Okay, he’s a chauvinist pig, and his sty is “The Dog House,” a testosterone-charged column in Maximum for Him magazine. On one hand, I abhor all he stands for. On the other hand, who better to coach me? So here I am. Learning the complex unspoken language of the American male (Talk, bad. Sex, good.); trying exciting new things (Stripping lessons are empowering. Really.); falling for Mike. Uh oh. But the Mike I’m getting to know is different from The Dog. And the Mona I’m becoming isn’t quite who I expected, either. This whole makeover scheme is getting crazier by the minute. But “crazy” beats “boring”…right?

“An over-the-top, laugh-out-loud romp.”
Jennifer Crusie, best-selling author of Bet Me

“The two great pleasures of reading this witty, wisecracking novel are witnessing Mona Warren discover her own possibilities as you watch her discover the key to real love: having the courage to be yourself!”
Diane Stingley, Dress You Up in My Love

Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of The Thin Pink Line
and Crossing the Line

“Reinventing Mona is a clever, sparkling tale of personal discovery, that kept me turning the pages late into the night! Jennifer Coburn does a lovely job of developing characters that shine, not despite their flaws, but because of them. You can’t help but find something familiar in each of them. I was rooting for the entire cast from beginning to end. Mona is a real winner!”
Donna Kauffman, best-selling author of The Cinderella Rules

“Watching Mona Warren reinvent herself is like watching Plain Jane metamorphose into a modern day Scarlett O’Hara. Original, funny and heartfelt Jennifer Coburn once again delivers another creative page-turner. This book is a wonderful invention!”

Not Just Another Zombie Story

A Secret Battle To Save Us Is Being Fought By The Living Dead.

Prior to recorded history, a small genetic mutation occurred that created a race of humans now found among every civilization in every corner of the globe. Unrecognizable to the rest of mankind, but dependent upon them for survival, this race is known as Mortui; those whose spirits do not leave their bodies when they die. They are the source of all living-dead legends, and living beings have an instinctual knowledge of their existence. Why else are people are afraid to look into the eyes of strangers, and avoid the gazes of those they pass? It comes from an instinctive need to protect oneself from them.

So begins the tale of AfterLife and Wesley Lohmann, who discovers he belongs to this select group.

In book one, AfterLife, Wes learns what it means to be Mortui and joins in the conflict between two rival organizations; one determined to serve humans and the other focused on the domination and subjection of the living.

The story continues in AfterLife Allegiances, the second book in the AfterLife series. It is a fast paced, compelling story of shifting alliances and deception that takes the reader further into the world of the Mortui and the escalating struggle between the living and the dead. Even after death the battle to survive continues and the need for strong, trustworthy alliances is greater than ever.

By May 1940, panzer divisions had decimated Belgium and reached Calais. Lieutenant John Randal of the U.S. 26th Cavalry Regiment volunteers his expertise to help slow their advance. What unfolds is a blend of military guerrilla tactics, suspense, humour, cultural and social commentary, and war buddy camaraderie – plus a little romance between the American GI and the widowed Lady Jane Seaborn. Along the way readers meet such colourful characters as Captain David Niven in MO-9 and Captain ‘Geronimo Joe’ McKoy with his Travelling Wild West Show and Shooting Emporium. The author – a decorated combat veteran – covers the details of war extensively, from the five points of contact of a parachute landing fall to descriptions of a British raider’s A-5 flinging ferries before the first 12-gauge shell casing hits the floor. As the novel ends, Major Randal’s men, fresh from Operation Tomcat in France, learn they will deploy via sea transport within 48 hours on their next mission. The second book, which is already written, tells that tale.
