A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2017 Advent Calendar collection Stocking Stuffers. An aggressive super-flu pandemic wipes out a majority of the population over the course of one Christmas holiday—and brings Tobin and Kyle together. For almost a year, they’ve been trekking across the country from Colorado toward a sanctuary in upstate New York. Kyle’s survival skills have kept them alive, and Tobin wants to repay the man he loves with a very special gift of his own making. He sneaks off in search of the last few pieces… only to get himself and Kyle kidnapped by a desperate stranger.
With their journey to New York on hold—possibly indefinitely—they’ll need to accept that home isn’t always defined by a place as much as the person you’re with.
Also Known As Albert D.J. Cashier is an account of the life of an Irish immigrant girl, Jennie Hodgers, who came to the United States in the years following the Great Potato Famine. She served for three years in the 95th Illinois Infantry of the Union army under the name Albert Cashier and fought in the battles of Nashville, Mobile, and Vicksburg. Never again would she respond to the name Jennie. No one ever guessed that she was really a woman, and accounts by her fellow comrades indicate that they just assumed Albert was a small, somewhat shy man. In the years following the Civil War, “Albert” took on the life of a bachelor and worked a number of jobs from janitor to handyman. The secret was not discovered until the early 1900s, when an automobile accident broke her leg and she needed medical attention.
Based on historical records, Also Known As Albert D.J. Cashier is a fascinating story of a most amazing woman. About the Author: Lon P. Dawson is the author of Now Listen Up: An Anthology of Service Memories; A Promise Kept: The Story of the Illinois Veterans Home; the soon-to-be-published military cookbook Culinary Campaign and the autobiography Cradle Cruise: A Navy Bluejacket Remembers Life Aboard the USS Trever During World War II.
Dogging the flight of a Soviet Bear bomber in Libyan airspace, a U.S. navy fighter's crew are witnesses to a shocking display of military might: the unearthly power of an unheard-of weapon -- capable of untold devastation. Poised for action on the eve of Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, America's forces have reason to believe the new superweapon is the key to a Soviet-Iraqi conspiracy. And dire consequences await un the United States strikes first -- and fast. Scientist/pilot Wyn Gallagher and his East-bloc counterpart, Elena Pasvalys, are the key players in their governments' deadly game of strategy. Now -- as the desert war erupts -- they alone may be the only hope of stopping the unleashed fury of Stingray . . . . "White starts things off with a terrific bang . . . . Fast-paced and intelligent." -- San Francisco Chronicle
The idea for this cookbook came about when I was sitting with my sisters one evening reminiscing about the comfort foods we enjoyed as we were growing up.
