Author Jay Lillie, a Manhattan based lawyer, has travelled the globe representing
American business clients and foreign banks and insurance companies regarding
their investments in the U.S. His novels reflect the cultures and people of the
many environments in which he has been employed to solve problems and close
deals. The acclaimed Pacific Rebound is international suspense at its best and
takes us from Manhattan, throughout what the author coins AustralAsia, to
Japan, and the Great Australian Desert. His novels, Havana Passage, Justice,
and Gitmo take place closer to home but feast on the same global awareness
Jay Lillie brings to the stage of life. His characters are fictitious, but places and
situations are very real, including those within the workings of Capital Hill
and Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC, where most international lawyers
spent the rest of their time. Jay’s experience racing sailboats in his teens, as a
Naval Officer, and Bermuda Race veteran, brings the plot of FOUR to life.$2.99–$11.05 Select options

Ethan and Eva Thomas live on a sheep ranch with their father and aunt. As an avid amateur photographer of local wildlife, twelve year old Ethan deplores hunting and guns of any kind. As an animal lover, he maintains a small “trauma ward” in the back of his father’s barn where he nurses wounded animals back to health, then frees them into their natural habitat.
Eva, his ten year old sister, inherited more of her father’s genes and as a consequence, loves guns and hunting and aspires to be a big game hunter and explorer in the Alaska wilderness. Although both enjoy ranch life and the great outdoors, their different natures are constantly at odds with each other.
Then, then, is the story of how a gentle-hearted boy and his tomboy kid sister meet the challenge of dealing with a mysterious white wolf and a terrifying grizzly bear aptly named, “Ol’ Lucifer” who roams the foothills of the Grizzly Mountain Range.

Richard lives in a small town in Connecticut. He spent most of his life working as an accountant and field auditor specializing in finance and taxes. It wasn’t until after he retired from the work force that he found the time to prioritize his creative aspirations by becoming a compulsive writer. After graduating from The Institute For Children’s Literature in Westport, Connecticut, he began writing Young Adult and Middle-Grade Juvenile novels. His writing environment consists of a small room, a big desk, a computer, a couple of printers and his inventory of paperback novels.
Anxious to begin writing, he wrote his very first young adult novel in thirty days. After revising, editing and formatting phases were complete, his first manuscript was sent to publishing houses all around the United States, only to return each time accompanied by the standard rejection slip.
Undiscouraged, he wrote five more novels, both young adult and mid-grade juvenile plus a large collection of children’s short stories and poems, all of which he will soon begin to market on his website: www.kreativexpressionsonline.com
They will appear not only in paperback form, but also able to be downloaded as E-Books for people to read on their handheld PDAs. Additionally, he will be marketing his works on CDs and, if things go well, perhaps as audio books.$2.99–$12.60 Select options
People, all over the world, tend to subscribe to the ‘bad hair/ good hair myth’ as a benchmark for grading hair-quality; if not for themselves, then, for others.
Historical facts, scientific facts, and fiction merge together in a dramatic, contemporary, background story, that sets the stage for demonstrating how differences in our ‘hair-quality’ came about.
This book includes a workbook and reflection section which challenges the reader not only to rethink the “bad hair/good hair myth”, but to possibly, deconstruct it.
This book, therefore, gives birth to a new Hair-Grading-System: “Good Hair/No-Bad Hair!” This system validates all hair types, and subsequently, all human beings. Hair diversity needs not spell, hair a-d-v-e-r-s-i-t-y. Simply, biodiversity!
Recommended for children, teens and adults of all hair types, including bald.$5.99–$24.99 Select options
What happens when real talk gets a little too real? That’s the 800-lb. gorilla confronting the Office of the Sheriff.
This character-driven saga puts the rear echelon in the crosshairs as Brian Cook gives it to you straight, no chaser with his debut vehicle, Hands Across the Sea.
Hands Across the Sea delves into the professional and personal sides of the badge where the rubber really meets the road. Explore how the Command staffers of The Office of the Sheriff, known as the Agency, come face-to-face with the unexpected: the changing of the guard.
Their larger-than-life Sheriff, Garrison Cottrell, abruptly resigns and passes the torch to his hand-picked successor – Brendan Callaghan.
Explore how their egos and isms intertwine with their leadership styles and principles, and come to light during professional and personal situations that will test their character and patience beyond enforcing the law. Gear up for what happens when the door shuts and the dialogue begins, and sometimes not in that order.
Cook doesn’t just peer back the curtain, he pulls it down with a look inside the Agency that often takes on the guise of Peyton Place. But we’re talking about professionals, right? Hands Across the Sea is the first in a literary series.$2.99–$30.50 Select options
