Protagonist Tony Rawlins find difficult circumstances during his search for romance

LANSDALE, Pa. – In M. Paul Chinitz’s new novel, “Fatal Females: A Tony Rawlins Mystery Trilogy” (published by Trafford Publishing), a gullible man seeking romance learns, at a terrible cost, that he needs to be more careful in how he makes his choices.

Tony Rawlins answers a provocative ad in the personals section of a paper and finds himself convicted of a murder he did not commit. Evidence later gets him released pending a retrial when his accuser can be found. Meanwhile, his boss asks him to examine a murdered man’s business accounts, which leads him into uncovering other murders, including his accuser.

An excerpt from “Fatal Females”:

“‘Dunkins said I’d find you here.’ I looked up from my plate of goulash, the Wednesday alternative to fish at Rose’s Diner. I knew that voice only too well to be surprised at seeing Reva Morgan’s somewhat plump figure wedge into my narrow booth.

‘The broiled salmon would have been a better choice,’ she continued in her also somewhat confrontational style.”

The three stories that make up “Fatal Females” move rapidly. “There are murders,” Chinitz explains, “but not ‘gore.’ Tony’s relations with manipulative women, some good, some bad, all leave him alone at the end.”

New book takes readers on an adventure to find themselves through love, laughs and friendship

LANSDALE, Penn. – In “Keonah Days” (published by Trafford Publishing), author M. Paul Chinitz’s new romantic novel, readers listen to Emmett Borden as he regales them with his tale of finding love in an unusual place.

After the death of his wife, Emmett Borden finds himself emotionally drained. Instead of continuing this way, he makes a vow to change his life for the better and once again enjoy life. He finds this new life in the sleepy town of Keonah, Iowa, where he stumbles upon a nuts and bolts store that is not all that it seems.

Here, he will begin a spontaneous adventure that will help him rediscover love, friendship and his life’s purpose.

An excerpt from “Keonah Days”:

“‘Yes, I think so. Mina’s overly protective. Too much so for a young boy; they grow too timid’. Looking straight at me, she handed me her plate and, getting up, added ‘I don’t think a man should be too timid either. What do you think Mr. Borden?’ Without waiting for a reply she turned around and walked into the house. I decided it would be prudent to thank my host and escape.”

Author Joan Engelhardt Nielsen has crafted an immensely emotional tale of love and sisterhood

PRESTON, Iowa– A common issue in the world today is the huge population of orphaned children. From countries like Cambodia to the USA millions of orphaned children suffer and die due to starvation and exploitation. These children are left to fend for themselves in a cold uncaring world without guidance or support of any kind. In “Without Mama’” author Joan Engelhardt Nielsen has written a touching story of four sisters who were orphaned at a very young age and survived despite the harsh realities of life.

“Without Mama” is a true story of survival. It depicts how Helen and her sisters are abandoned by their alcoholic father after their mother’s death. Without guidance of either parent, during their childhood they are physically alone, hungry, and needing affection. Geraldyne, 12, is in a wheelchair. Thelma, 9, wants the sisters to always be together. Helen is a mystified five year old who does not understand death, nor what Christmas is all about. Ethel, the baby, is 8 weeks old. This sad yet inspiring story shows the sheer courage it took for these four young girls to live life without parents and the immense effort it took to keep a family together.

This book is based on the true to life story of Helen who was interviewed by the author in her capacity as a nurse. The story is all true and is an accurate depiction of Helen Hunter and her sisters struggle to go on in life. “Without Mama” is a true testament to the strength of the human spirit
