DESCRIPTION:

An emotional, rousing novel inspired by the incredible true story of two giraffes who made headlines and won the hearts of Depression-era America.

“Few true friends have I known and two were giraffes…”

Woodrow Wilson Nickel, age 105, feels his life ebbing away. But when he learns giraffes are going extinct, he finds himself recalling the unforgettable experience he cannot take to his grave.

It’s 1938. The Great Depression lingers. Hitler is threatening Europe, and world-weary Americans long for wonder. They find it in two giraffes who miraculously survive a hurricane while crossing the Atlantic. What follows is a twelve-day road trip in a custom truck to deliver Southern California’s first giraffes to the San Diego Zoo. Behind the wheel is the young Dust Bowl rowdy Woodrow. Inspired by true events, the tale weaves real-life figures with fictional ones, including the world’s first female zoo director, a crusty old man with a past, a young female photographer with a secret, and assorted reprobates as spotty as the giraffes.

Part adventure, part historical saga, and part coming-of-age love story, West with Giraffes explores what it means to be changed by the grace of animals, the kindness of strangers, the passing of time, and a story told before it’s too late.

The hottest nerd I know just became my roommate.

But it’s a no-go on the downlow, seeing as he’s my best friend’s brother.

The best part is that he’s a hunk and a half, but oh so smart.

How can one guy have all the good stuff? And now he’s in my face all the time.

I just needed a place to stay while I’m in grad school.

And it’s entertaining watching this sexy IT genius create a new dating app.

Not so fun being his guinea pig until something crazy happens…

He turns out to be my perfect match on the app.

We’re too good as friends to mess this up, plus my BFF is less than thrilled about all of it.

No matter how much I want this guy, he’s gonna have to match me up with someone else.

As if.

Every good girl deserves a bad boy. ~ Weston

DESCRIPTION:

PRANKS. OIL. PROTEST. JOKES BETWEEN NEWLYWEDS. AND ONE HILARIOUS SIEGE OF A MAJOR CORPORATION.

Remmy grows up with Beth in Bellhammer, Illinois as oil and coal companies rob the land of everything that made it paradise. Under his Grandad, he learns how to properly prank his neighbors, friends, and foes. Beth tries to fix Remmy by taking him to church. Under his Daddy, Remmy starts the Bell Hammer Construction Company, which depends on contracts from Texarco Oil. And Beth argues with him about how to build a better business. Together, Remmy and Beth start to build a great neighborhood of “merry men” carpenters: a paradise of s’mores, porch furniture, newborn babies, and summer trips to Branson where their boys pop the tops of off the neighborhood’s two hundred soda bottles. Their witty banter builds a kind of castle among a growing nostalgia.

Then one of Jim Johnstone’s faulty Texarco oil derricks falls down on their house and poisons their neighborhood’s well.

Poisoned wells escalate to torched dog houses. Torched dog houses escalate to stolen carpentry tools and cancelled contracts. Cancelled contracts escalate to eminent domain. Sick of the attacks from Texaco Oil on his neighborhood, Remmy assembles his merry men:

“We need the world’s greatest prank. One grand glorious jest that’ll bloody the nose of that tyrant. Besides, pranks and jokes don’t got no consequences, right?”

:: PRAISE FOR LANCELOT SCHAUBERT AND BELL HAMMERS ::

“Schaubert recounts a mischievous man’s eight decades in Illinois’s Little Egypt region in his picaresque debut. Remmy’s life of constant schemes and pranks and a lifelong feud with classmate Jim Johnstone and the local oil drilling company proves consequential. This is a hoot.”

— Publisher’s Weekly

“BELL HAMMERS is written in a style not unworthy of John Kennedy Toole and William Faulkner – the vivid characterization of Southern ethnography commingled with stark, episodic spectacle breathes with the spirit of quintessential Americana. It is a text I would happily assign in an American Novel class and would expect it to yield satisfying discourse alongside works in the canon, whether beside the sardonic prose of Mark Twain or the energetically painful narratives of Toni Morrison.”

— Dr. Anthony Cirilla

DESCRIPTION:

Do you give yourself and your team the freedom to experiment?

Most leaders are so fixated on getting results that they ignore the process required to get there and the tools available to support their journey. But the truth of the matter is that getting results is a game of progress, not perfection.

And the only way for you and your team to make meaningful progress is if you have the freedom to experiment.

The best leaders are the ones that encourage their teams to courageously experiment, to thoughtfully exercise discipline, to consciously reflect on lessons learned, and to efficiently adapt to changing conditions. In Freedom to Experiment, Jim shares valuable tools and techniques to teach you to get the results you desire, effectively lead yourself and others, and become the leader others want to follow. In the process, you will ignite a new level of energy, focus, and momentum in yourself and your team.

How a near-death accident and a Traumatic Brain Injury showed me how much I’d taken for Granted. COVID 19 proved we all take things and people for granted. How to develop an Attitude of Gratitude

An inspirational memoir based upon my whole life (thus far) but it’s heavily weighted on the last 9+ years since my survival of a near-death accident in Aug 2011. I chronicle my early life, my 25 year marriage, my 30 years on Wall Street and my career as an avid age-grouper, all-distance triathlete. I competed and completed all-distances of triathlon including the Ironman at Lake Placid, NY in 2005.
