For Love of Drama Book Description :

This book is about acting. It's about money. It's about people who love the arts. It's about performing arts and how to make them happen in high school--how to make them affordable by selecting great scripts to attract paying audiences. The sale of tickets provides the revenue to pay all costs of play production, with a profit margin to boot. The book provides practical suggestions for budgeting, cost control, play selection, auditions, casting, rehearsing, planning, discipline, and performance. The book exudes the joy that accompanies working with artistic young people who are intent on excellence. It communicates the director's personal philosophy of allowing actors to begin a play by creating their own character development which can be shaped by the director over time. It promotes the concept that the students, not the directors, do the work. The students study the play, rehearse the play, and perform the play with guidance from the director, but without excessive direction. The director, for example, allows students to do the stage management, the lighting design and operation, and the sound effects. The director does not go back stage at all during rehearsals or performances, leaving students to solve their own problems and to make the production happen without adult assistance. The result is serious student responsibility and determination. The result is team work and cooperation. Ideas for publicity are provided in the text, as well as suggestions for play selections, planning arrangements, budgets for various plays, and ideas for acting and directing. The director's philosophy is revealed, including persuasive arguments for the great value derived from participation in performance activities. The book is a manual for creating and maintaining a drama program which brings out the best in the actors, stage hands, and technical workers. It makes an argument that there is no need to curtail or eliminate drama, dance, music, and other performing arts when finance

Naked in Da Nang Book Description :

FACs (forward air controllers) in Vietnam flew low and slow, searching for signs of an elusive enemy. Often they trolled themselves as bait for the NVA troops to try to shoot down. When a friendly unit made contact, having a FAC overhead made their day, because the FACs controlled the bomb-, rocket-, and napalm-laden fast movers, fighter jets, and attack aircraft whose ordnance often made the difference between life and death. They were regarded by many of their air force and naval aviator brethren as insane, suicidal, or both. In addition to the perils of enemy fire which ranged from lucky AK-47 shots to .51 caliber machine guns and SA-7 shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles, they had to watch out to keep from being blown up in a B-52 Arc-Light strike or knocked down by friendly artillery.

It is the year 1918, the zenith period of anthracite coal mining and James Mueller, a fourteen-and-a-half-year-old son of a coal miner, is soon catapulted into the arduous life of a mine worker. James' decision is not based on greed or a directive from his parents, but on his desire to help his family financially, after learning that his older brother is to attend medical school in Philadelphia to become a doctor. Along the turbulent path of his life, James soon discovers that a special bond has formed with one of his seven children, his daughter, Catherine. Catherine faces her own obstacles growing up in the impoverished, idiosyncratic patch town of Shepsberg. The experiences of both James and Catherine are entwined on many levels as they learn the most essential lessons in life from one another. In the Field of Black Diamonds is based on a true story, which chronicles the tale of a coal mining family set in the anthracite coal region of Eastern Pennsylvania. This is the story of their lives, their journeys, their successes, and their struggles in the black land simply known as coal country.

Sand and Silicon Book Description :

This is a story about sand and how science and silicon changed our lives. Over the last century, science taught us how to take this most common material and create the products on which we depend. It allows us to determine the atomic structure of materials and to grow novel, new materials atomic layer by atomic layer. The principles of thermodynamics are used to transform sand into ultra pure silicon. Quantum mechanics gave birth to the electronic age and the computer chip in which dopants are precisely placed in ultra pure silicon. The absorption and emission and reflection of quanta of light, photons, underlies solar cells, light emitting diodes, radiation detectors and optical fibers. This book follows the history of these scientific discoveries and relates them to the products made from sand.

Storykiller Book Description :

The monster under the bed is real. In fact, all the monsters are real, as well as the heroes and everything in between because all Fiction is real and exists in a dimension called Story. However, plenty of them hang out in the Mortal world, living both innocent and nefarious lives. This might not mean much to the average Mortal unaware of the Fictional characters living among them, but for The Last Scion--the only Mortal that can kill those Fictional characters--things are about to become very complicated. Tessa Battle is that Mortal. Upon her return to Lore, Oregon after years bouncing around boarding schools in Europe, Tessa had her sights set on simple things like shoe shopping, finding a hot boyfriend, and eating as many pancakes as humanly possible. However, the Last Scion mantle Tessa just got saddled with is not making any of that easy, and as Tessa and her new friends are about to learn, Story is long from done with her, no matter how much she'd like to deny her destiny. With more than one monster chasing her and questionable characters like The Snow Queen and Robin Hood as her allies, Tessa is going to need all the superpowers she inherited just to stay alive. And maybe, just maybe, it's a GOOD thing that behind her back, Stories call her THE STORYKILLER.
