Running On Empty

Ralph Morton has remained for years in an unhappy marriage. His love for his wife, Laura is often in question but his love for his two sons keeps him home and faithful.

Just before his best friend Gerry died he whispered a message into Ralph's ear. "Find the Barken Tree". Ralph begins the search and the results are life-changing.

To be killed by a falling tree seems remarkable yet at the time I wrote this story I was familiar with a true life situation where this, in fact, occurred. The importance of an individual's death bed wish cannot be questioned. Our hero's search for the Barken Tree is one that is rewarding to him and to his family but greater than this is that a reader will feel rewarded by the outcome of his quest.

"Scarlet Thistles"

My copy of "Scarlet Thistles" a Canadian Anthology of Poetry which is a special project of The Ontario Poetry Society has arrived this afternoon. I am feeling very honoured to have two of my poems titled "I'm Still Here" and "The not so famous Writer" included in this beautiful book.

Congrats also to my Elliot Lake poet friend Greg Laurenceson who also has poems included in this anthology.

Beyond The Blue

BEYOND THE BLUE is a story that takes place in a Toronto neighbourhood way back in the 1950's. I actually remember those days well. Bullying was a problem then as it is today although to a lesser degree in that in those days it was rare that weapons be used or that drugs be involved. Yes, it was more innocent but make no mistake, for the child being bullied it was a harrowing experience. "Enigami" is the message beyond the blue but what on earth can that possibly mean...? This coming-of-age story is one I believe many school-aged children will find believable and inspiring. I hope you will enjoy it too.

The Kindle Edition of Beyond The Blue is Free today on all Amazon sites.

REAWAKENING ......

Kindle Edition of REAWAKENING, a novel, is free today on all Amazon sites.

 Publisher's Review:
Every now and then a manuscript comes across my desk that completely captivates me. Austin has reached inside the human heart and removed all boundaries pertaining to everlasting love . . . and her ability to play with the English language successfully is astounding.

Austin's Reawakening is a must-read. It will take you into a land not far from your heart and bring you back to earth again - believing that all things are possible with love and hope.

Dying To Be Popular ......... a short story

"Dying To Be Popular" - the Kindle edition of this short story is free today on all Amazon sites.

A young teen's fashion sense is determined by what can be found to fit in Pennington's. She can no longer pretend to be happy; not even to please her mother. Why did she suddenly desire to be unattractive? When no one arrives for her birthday party she knows what she needs to do.

She chooses to be obese and suffers the ridicule, unpopularity and bullying as a result.  How very sad that no one ever takes the time to discover what it is that this young teenager is doing her best to hide.  

The number of teen suicides is a frightening statistic in our western society; one to which a reader's attention will be drawn through the reading of this story.  Feeling alone, alienated and unable to reach out to someone for help and understanding it's a sad fact that it is not uncommon for a teenager to reach out to food for comfort.  Emotional eating that leads to this young girl's death reminds us that all addictions kill sooner or later in one way or another.

If you enjoy reading this story you will want to check out one of my short story anthologies titled "Social Studies - Book One" in which Dying To Be Popular is one of 12 stories.

Social Studies, Book One - Dying To Be Popular is available in both Kindle and Paperback Editions on all Amazon sites.  Check out my author's page at http://www.amazon.com/author/audreyaustin
