Enjoy the complete Howl Series in one boxed set.
Raising the Phoenix, The Howl Series: Book One
The Alpha is the leader of the pack, a revered position, one that can’t be inherited, only earned.
For ten years my father groomed me to take over in the event something happened to him. I guess I never expected it to happen so soon. I thought I’d have more time. I thought I’d at least graduate from college first. Instead, life threw the Phoenix Pack a curveball. My father was murdered, and my mother died with him. Suddenly, I’m responsible for my twin sisters, and everyone else. I’m forced to make some tough decisions. And if everyone in the pack has their way, one of those decisions will involve finding my mate. They should’ve given me an easier task, like brokering world peace or curing cancer. After all, what male would ever volunteer for this, having a mate who’s also his Alpha, leaving his pack to join hers, and giving up everything he has ever known?
Cursing the Moon, The Howl Series: Book Two
Savannah Silver has met her mate.
Her wolf has chosen, but the Alpha who can silence others with a look and command her pack with a word has been refused. While she waits for him to come to his senses, Savvy works to find her parents’ killers, rebuild the homestead and ensure Shelby’s future.
Quinn Holderman has met his match.
Being part wolf and part husky has always been a disadvantage. Becoming a rogue was his only hope for happiness. Then Quinn met Savvy. In his mind, his reasons for denying her made perfect sense. In reality, he has suffered every second they are apart.
Healing the Heart, The Howl Series: Book Three
Sometimes love isn’t enough. Sometimes love can’t conquer all. Sometimes healing a heart takes time.
Quinn doesn’t have time. Instead, what he has is a looming deadline. The mating must take place by the full moon or not at all. He thought he had made up his mind. He thought he could live with his decision. Then Savvy disappeared.
Savvy is an all or nothing kind of girl. She needs a strong mate, a decisive mate, a loving and supportive mate. Unfortunately, Quinn refused to be that mate. Losing him was breaking her heart. Staying busy was her only coping mechanism. Ignoring her needs and focusing on the pack helped her find everything she ever needed.
Sometimes the threat of losing everything can change minds and hearts. Sometimes the promise of a better future and a determined mate can heal a heart in record time.
He needed more time. She needed her mate. Together, they’re cursing the moon.
Title: From Compton to Congress: His Grace for my Race

During his meteoric rise in the political arena, at age 35 he becomes the youngest African-American from California to be elected to a U.S. congressional seat. However, the U.S. Attorney’s federal indictment against him shocks the nation. Tucker’s choice to fight the charges against him thrusts him into a criminal trial that tests the condition of his human spirit and provokes us to reflect on every man’s plight versus every man’s fight.
Walter R. Tucker, III is a native of Compton, California. He graduated Valedictorian of Compton High School in 1974. After graduating from high school, Walter studied Politics at Princeton University for two years. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from U.S.C. in 1978, and his Juris Doctor from Georgetown Law School in 1981, Walter worked as a Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney, established his own law firm, served as Mayor of Compton, and was elected to the U.S. Congress in 1993 – all by age 35.

They are the proud parents of Walter, IV, and Autumn and have one son-in-law, Spencer Rodney Sr., and one wonderful grandchild, Spencer Rodney, Jr. Walter enjoys morning walks on the beach and candlelight dinners with Robin.
This nonfiction memoir packs a powerful punch.
Except for brief periods in her young life, the author’s journey to adulthood was problematic and filled with obstacles… and sinkholes.
Being born to a mother who already had children… and a substance abuse problem foreshadowed the rocky path the author would travel even as a young child.
The bright spot and perhaps anchor for young Wanda was a committed grandmother. She went above and beyond, helping her grandchildren for as long as she could, never giving up hope her daughter would turn her life around and be the mother her children needed.
It’s obvious the faith the grandmother had in Wanda helped shaped her character. But, I believe it also hindered her mentally and emotionally, leading her to hide her pain in silence, and later, alcohol.
This is not a pretty story. But it does not seek to place blame. It’s about understanding people, especially family. It’s about the emotional power of forgiveness and understanding the need to forgive yourself. And it’s about the choices we make as we move through this life and the ripple effect they have on those around us.
My one issue with this read—it needs a professional edit. There is a moving story here which could be lost to others because of grammar and syntax errors.
Still, I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It’s raw and gritty and inspiring. The author doesn’t absolve herself of anything. She gives the reader the chance to take a short walk in her shoes and understand why she’s blessed to still be here.
“They Said That I Wouldn’t Make It: But Here I am“
Genre: Personal Growth/Self-Help
Release Date: August 31, 2017
This story is about survival & forgiveness. My mother gave birth to me at the age of 26 and was not too sure if she could take care of me. Physically or emotionally. At this time she was already struggling to take care of two kids that were 6 and 7 years old and adding another child to her equation, just did not bring her any comfort.
I was told by my grandmother that she talked my mother into keeping me and she had hoped that me coming into this world would slow her down or stop my mother from snorting cocaine and smoking weed. My grandmother was wrong. The drug and alcohol use continued and increased. When I was 10 my mother invited a couple of friends over to play cards and socialize. I can tell you right now neither of the two happened. The glass table in the living room was filled with cocaine powder and razors.Most of my childhood and early adult life was spent looking and trying to fulfill an empty space that I felt. I made a lot of mistakes with money and relationships because of this feeling. I almost lost my daughter because of it. One day I woke up after a night of excessive drinking and crashing my Honda Civic into a wall. I had to make a decision. Did I want to live or die? I chose to live.
“Sarah (Rare Women Series Book 1)”

Release Date: October 9, 2017
Hope is how this book can be defined.
The story of a naive Sarah growing up in a post-Taliban era in Afghanistan. Her exposure to the only television in the village through her best friend Shakip opens the window to the endless imagination and hard impression of western women riding bikes and kicking asses.
Obsessed by the kick-ass heroine, she grows up dreaming of joining Hollywood and conquering it with her wits. However, there is a war going on, and the rebel inside her pushes her to join the commander pigeon squad the only women warlord in the country to fight against the lurking Taliban. The very decision of her bravery contains her in her own paradox.
One side there is a big dream of going Hollywood and being an inspiration the other is to stay in her godforsaken place. To fight the good fight and die unknown. She was always supposed to be the hero of her journey, but she can choose only one to be a hero in reel life or in real life.
The RARE GIRL SERIES is the reflection of that voice. Every book in the series will be about a Girl/women with rare quality. No unnecessary sexualized female character, no carrying on the image of main-stream media, but real ground reality story of women in all the corners of the world with a pinch of imagination on it. The first book of the series SARAH was published in October 2017 with the second book due in 2018.
