The American War

The American War

In the summer of 1969, elements of the 101st Airborne went back to the A Shau Valley in South Vietnam. In the summer of 1864, the 10th Vermont, part of General Ricketts’ Third Division, marched into the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.

Sam Kensington was at both campaigns.

Sam, who is the creation of author Don Meyer, is a Vietnam-era soldier who ultimately finds himself fighting two very different campaigns in two very different wars: one in his present day and one nearly a century in the past. In The American War (ISBN: 9781938271014, Two Peas Publishing), Meyer follows Sam as he fights alongside fellow soldiers in both wars while desperately trying to come to terms with what’s happening to him.

The American War is available from Amazon.com and other retailers in both paperback and eBook formats.

Timecast

Timecast

Haunted by guilt and loneliness after a car accident that left the love of his life indefinitely comatose, an aging high school physical science teacher schemes to restore his wife to health and vitality by using the advanced space-time theories of quantum physics to change history.

Based in part on the speculations and published conjectures of theoretical physicists past and present, Timecast (ISBN: 9780983761082) is a novelette that explores the nature of humanity, companionship, and the individual’s relationship to the universe through one man’s desperate need to set his life on a different path.

An ornery lawn-mowing neighbor and a confused, but concerned, English teacher become the old man’s first experiment and sounding board as he struggles to regain that which he believes his own youthful foolishness robbed him of twenty years before.

Can he set things right? Time will tell.

Timecast is now available for download on Kindle, Nook, and iPad. It will also soon be available as a Google eBook and for Kobo.

The Little Toad and the Big Flood

The Little Toad and the Big Flood

When Middle Tennessee residents Jill and Ben Johnson experienced the devastation of the May 2010 floods that destroyed many residents’ homes and lives, they found a unique way to process the experience: by writing and illustrating a children’s book based on the true events of the flood and the story a little toad who happened to have made a residence under the family’s movable basketball goal.

It isn’t the first time Little Toad has seen heavy rain, so he has little trouble falling asleep in the comfortable home he has made for himself under the basketball goal. In fact, the sound of the rain lulls him into a dream in which he finds himself comfortably adrift on a boat, rocking gently back and forth on the waves.

When Little Toad awakes, he discovers that the pleasant dream in his head was kindled by a nightmarish reality. The heavy rain has poured for so long that his home under the basketball goal is flooded. His leaf bed is floating atop the muddy brown water.

Frightened, Little Toad flees his home for the safety of a tall tree. From there, he watches his comfortable basketball goal home float away.

Where will he live now? Where can he go to hide from bigger animals who might eat him?

The Johnsons hope that the story of Little Toad can be used to help child victims of natural disasters cope with the reality of the situation. The Little Toad and the Big Flood (ISBN: 978-0983761075) is now available to booksellers from Two Peas Publishing and to the public from Amazon.com and other retailers.
