Fen has always hated being the centre of attention.
She loves her new job, working behind the scenes at the Little Duck Pond Cafe and baking the scrumptious cakes that have helped its reputation soar. But frankly, she'd rather scrub the public toilet floor with a toothbrush than have to come out and talk to the customers.
She's always been happy to stay in the background as long as she has a good supply of books to escape into. That's her kind of romance - the fictional sort where she can read about other people taking a chance on love, but she doesn't have to risk her own heart.
But that was before Ethan Fox arrived in the village and turned her world upside down. Ethan is a leading light in the local amateur dramatics theatre company and Fen knows he's way out of her league.
But when the popular village Christmas pantomime hits a crisis, Fen and Ethan find themselves thrown together. Can Fen overcome her shyness and find the courage to step on stage and save the day?

Drawing is probably one of the oldest forms of art in human history. Humans have been drawing pictures since some ancient man drew something on the ground or on the walls of his cave. These images were representations of their life. The very first drawings may have been drawn using a stick or a rock. Their canvas: the walls of the cave they dwell in. There are many examples of cave paintings portraying animals and humans. Some also show the activities of these ancient humans.
The pictures we have drawn have evolved along with the human brain. As the brain grew more sophisticated, so did the drawings and pictures. Some became more realistic; showing what the artist sees in reality. Others tried to draw and paint the emotions they have. There have been scores of great painters in history. They have created wonderful, awe-inspiring, and truly magnificent works of art.

Human beings are nothing but lowly trash. Fit only for consumption. That's my motto in life and why I avoid everything to do with them beyond an evening meal.

Who was the stranger at the wedding and why has he been so brutally shot? These are the questions left hanging in the air like gun smoke and the ones the police would like answered.
Tom is an insufferable, misogynistic husband who thinks nothing of spending the weekend of his wife's thirtieth birthday, in Paris with a woman he hasn't seen since they last bumped into each other in the office stationary cupboard.
Of course where Tom is concerned, there is a reasonable excuse for such a betrayal? Top of the list being that it hadn't been planned... it just sort of happened... men forget important dates like birthdays. After all, such lapses of memory are part of their genetic makeup, much the same as buying yet more clothes and yet another pair of shoes, are part of a woman's. And anyway it wasn't as though he forgot completely... he did have his secretary send her a 'garage' bunch of flowers and a small box of Diary Milk the day before he left on his business trip.
It's only as he's ...

Oskar Lenkeit is a fish out of water at the EEC in spring 1969. He's about to find out how far.
Echoes from the past are threatening to disturb the three-year old truce between France and Germany over the direction of the EEC. At the request of some unlikely sponsors, Lenkeit takes on an Internal Affairs investigation intended to restore the peace, but ends up with a foot on either side of a widening rift.
With corruption at the pinnacle of European society, can the project survive, will France and Germany finally set aside old differences, or will their countries' ghosts bring it down?
Written for fans of Philip Kerr, Len Deighton, Robert Harris and John Le Carré, who are looking for a European Union origins story of the same genre and set in a similar era.

Love is a subject as old as humanity itself. Countless volumes have been written on love; classifying, categorizing, analyzing and dissecting it. And yet, love remains as incomprehensible as ever.
These poems are my attempt to understand love; a love that is pure and unblemished; a love that is serene yet mischievous, uncompromising yet fluid, unyielding yet caring, exacting yet joyous. These poems are presented in the chronological order they were written.
Love's promises are always dangerous
Outcomes are perpetually in suspense
The good and the bad, the metric of the world
Invariably loses, its meaning
Cruel is caring, supporting suffocating
Critical is kind, annoying endearing
To judge it by words, devoid of the context
Is to remain unaware, of its true nature

This book from Pete Conrad marks his entry into the literate arts. Songs written while at work when he should have been working, poetry about the Middle-Class American Disaster, short stories that explore the literary process of creating novels, and essays written while an adult student at the University of South Florida. 104070 (tenfortyseventy) documents the life of a budding author and thinker.
An aging rock star. A dying fan. A connection.
Raeburn Messiah, the Messiah of Metal, sings for a living. Currently, he's on the downward spiral that unfaithful fame loves so dearly. He feels that he's got it bad, his life is over. That is, until he meets one of his most adoring fans, Gabriel, who has but months to live due to the complications of leukemia.
They are men, both dying slow, painful deaths. But each carries a secret that could save the other. For Raeburn and Gabriel are the suicide flowers, doomed to be trampled, destined to flourish.
It sounds like a bold claim, but this book really does explain how we learn, why learning, recognizing, understanding, Eureka moments and humour, give us such an enjoyable neuro-chemical buzz, how our pre-conscious association-detecting experience-trapping model-making neural networks generalize and abstract from a stream of personal and cultural experiences, to construct our causal maps and models of reality, our value systems and our emotional associations. It explores the strengths and weaknesses of human thinking (our cognitive biases) and shows how we can take conscious control of our personal development, updating old and dysfunctional models of reality to take account of new experiences and changed circumstances. It opens up the possibility of rewriting the HOWs and WHYs that drive our behaviour and motivation, and presents a powerful Graphical Thinking Tool (based on thinking-in-triplets) that everyone can use, individually or in groups, to explore and understand the deep ...

This second edition of this commentary has redone much of the writing on Ephesians 5:15-27. It has also changed that part of the text from two chapters to three chapters. Having said that, the first part of this book begins with Paul's final days of freedom before being arrested in Jerusalem. The timeframe would have been at the end of his third Bible-recorded missionary journey. He had been going there so that he could attend the celebration of Pentecost. He had also gone there to take some financial aid to the church in Jerusalem. While there, he had participated in a Nazarite ritual with four men who had taken a vow. Following that ritual, he had gone to the synagogue with those same four men. However, as soon as some of the Jewish people from Asia had seen him, they immediately had accused him and had attacked him. Given the opportunity, they would have killed him right there on the spot.
But the Roman chief captain in Jerusalem had intervened by taking him into custody. However, ...
