At the Rainbow's End is about the lives of Jefferson and Mary Bright, plantation owners, about their struggles and the struggles of recently freed slaves to survive in a newly ordered society. Lurking in the background is the Ku Klux Klan, who kill and threaten all who would oppose them in a desperate effort to restore the old order, an insurgency that fosters, among other things, jealousy and murder, and events that threaten Jefferson and Mary with more than the loss of a way of life.

Every major government’s military makes plans for waging wars, hoping that they never have to be employed. In the early part of the last century the US government prepared a number of war contingency plans for invading a number of nations—both hostile and friendly. These color-coded plans were designed for various political and military events, some of which actually unfolded in the Second World War. Never Wars: The US War Plans to Invade the World explores and provides details on a number of these key military invasion plans, their triggers, units involved, etc. Some of these plans, if executed, would have altered the globe or changed the events of the twentieth century and beyond. Included with this was the 1914 war plan against a triumphant Germany, a 1935 plan to attack Great Britain, the 1920s US plans to land forces in Mexico to topple their government, a plan for invading China and even a 1905 strike into the heart of Canada.

Tribute to Young Mother's Part One was a collection of poetry. Poetry that I collected from the ages of 13 to 22. Some amateur and some complex. Part one was a summary of the past 10 years of my life basically. Part 2 is all new and raw material. All Mature and more articulate vocabulary. All well thought and concise material. Although Part one is special for being part one in general, we all get better with time. This part shall bring light to all the real struggles I faced. All those moments I felt like giving up. All those nights I stood up in tears. The real struggle, that no one hears of. I must feed my readers more knowledge and truth, so everyone can see the light of how hard it is to be the minority here in America. Let us rejoice the trials and tribulations, and prove how well we can overcome them!
