Bait and Switch (A Jessica Minton Mystery Book 1)
by Sharon Healy-Yang
“I’m a huge fan of films and books created during the 1930s-50s, with their blend of sharp wit, humor, and dark suspense. That passion inspired me to write Bait and Switch, a mystery/romance set in 1943. My novel features a sharp, witty, imaginative female lead who’s ripe for a little romance, even if it is mixed in with espionage, deception, and murder.” *

Sharing Voices: Getting from There to Here
by Stacy Amaral
“The people represented in Sharing Voices are men and women, very young to very old, black, white, Latino and Asian – all with varying degrees of education, careers and interests. Amaral said the book could be a great tool to teach people not only about their past, but others’ pasts and experiences. Perhaps, through a bit of understanding, the stories could even bring people closer together.” *
