When Work Becomes Optional
Stan Corey

Why retire? If you’re at this stage in your life, you’ve probably asked yourself this question. Many of today’s retirees have no intention of stopping and are seeking to live the rest of their lives with purpose and adventure. For them, this stage is not just a shift in living but a shift in thinking as well. In When Work Becomes Optional, Stan Corey shows you how to take control of your life and physical and emotional wellness, maintain financial independence, and pursue your passions during throughout your retirement years. There is an old saying, “If it is going to be, it is up to me!” Retirement is a new awakening and a new opportunity to live the life you have always envisioned. In When Work Becomes Optional, Stan provides you the essential tools to live your one best retirement life.


Intense Emotions: Two Different Worlds
Orville Hutchinson

Orville Hutchinson remembers when he was a frightened nine-year-old Kingston boy sobbing with anguished loneliness at night. He remembers the ongoing war between his separated parents and the sting of his father’s leather belt across his back. And he remembers his despair when his parents abandoned him for five years.

Taken by his father to visit relatives in the country, Orville—known as Dane to his family—discovered he was to be left in the care of his grandfather. Adrift in a world he knew nothing about, Dane had to quickly adapt to a new way of life, where he was expected to perform unfamiliar chores as ably as his bulkier, stronger cousins—or risk a beating.

Intense Emotion is Hutchinson’s dramatic recollection of five years that radically changed his life, including his pain and fear when he realized his parents had forsaken him and his difficulty adapting to life in the Jamaican countryside. From the duppy (ghost) in the banana farm to the beating he received for destroying his uncle’s potato plants, Hutchinson brings to life the trials of a young city boy attempting to endure in an alien, rough-and-ready rural environment—an inspiring message of hope and survival.


The Bench at Bethany
Karen Rihn and Diana Cavey

A simple wood bench begins a dream that results in connecting and finding peace. Set in the beach area of Bethany the family finds that life is about timing and in this book the perfect time sometimes happens when least expected.
