Reluctant vampire Cherry Stem tries to unwrap and survive the mystery behind her turning, while juggling hot mortal and immortal men, prophecies, improbable friendships, and bad hair days. Book 1 - Cherry Stem When Cherry meets Alex, she expects him to be nothing more than another “girl meets boy, girl feeds from boy, girl erases boy’s memories” hook-up. Once missing young women, the vampire council, and her irresistible ex are thrown into the mix though, she realizes nothing is as simple or random as she thought it was. And her unlife isn’t the only thing at stake. Book 2 - Cherry Blossom Alex is changing, AdIsa is dead but not as gone as she should be, and feelings forced aside are reconsidered. Back in her hometown, and faced with an overabundance of new information, Cherry is determined to fight for herself, her family, and her man. That’s when her world is turned upside down. Again. Book 3 - Cherry Pie Cherry has lost her career, her life, and both the men she’s loved, because others made her choices for her. It’s time for that to stop.
Taher Dajani remembers playing soccer with his neighborhood friends in his idyllic city of Jaffa, Palestine. But on April 24, 1948, when Taher was fourteen, his carefree lifestyle came to an abrupt end. His family, with little money and few possessions, escaped the city by sea in a crowded fishing trawler as Zionist militia encircled Jaffa. Taher's father believed the family was in danger, so overnight they became refugees. The family took refuge in Syria and later in Libya, which enabled them to rebuild their lives. They experienced grief at leaving a place they loved and felt a great sense of loss and displacement, but with perseverance the Dajanis began anew.
"From Palestine to America" describes the family's experiences and their determination. Taher Dajani writes this memoir about his new life after leaving his beloved Jaffa-from his days as a college student in Chicago to his work with the central bank in Libya-and his position with the International Monetary Fund in Washington DC. Even though it has been sixty years since the Dajani family were forced to flee Palestine, they remember their heritage and roots, and Jaffa, Palestine, will forever be in their hearts.
In the summer of 2004, I traveled around the perimeter of the country by train - an 8,000 mile journey which included stops in New Orleans, Tucson, Oxnard, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and Chicago. This book is a photo collection featuring over 100 of my best images taken on the trip along with the text of my 16,000-word travelogue. This book will delight readers who enjoy trains, travel, history, baseball, architecture, and stunning black and white photography. Read about my travels along some of Amtrak's most famous routes: Empire Builder, Sunset Limited, Coast Starlight, Crescent, Cascades, and Lakeshore Limited. Learn about the history and see the sights of each city through the lens of my camera. Other highlights of the book include my encounters with rattlesnakes outside of Tucson, a visit to Channel Islands National Park, a tour of New Orleans' French Quarter, a descent into underground Seattle, and my experiences at four major league ballparks in Chicago, Seattle, and Minneapolis.
