Tim Sharp and his magnificent creation, Laser Beak Man, are now major names in the world of international art. But the journey to this point has been an extraordinary one. When Judy Sharp took her three-year-old son Tim to a paediatric specialist, he was diagnosed with autism so severe that she was told he would never be able to talk or learn to live in a normal household, and that he was incapable of love, even towards his own mother. The advice at the time was that he would be better off in an institution. Just over twenty years later, Tim's joyful artworks and drawings involving his superhero, Laser Beak Man, have been exhibited around the world. From the Powerhouse in Brisbane to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, some of the world's greatest galleries have showcased Tim and his amazing career. Laser Beak Man's appeal is so widespread it's gone on to inspire, among other things, an eight-part animated children's TV series and a Broadway play in New York. A Double Shot of Happiness (from the title of one of Tim's favourite artworks) is Judy's beautiful and heartfelt account of Tim's odyssey from that terrible diagnosis to his emergence as an acclaimed artist and a fulfilled, loving and loved young man. It's a story that has involved many hurdles, moments of despair and incredible hard work from Tim, Judy, his brother Sam and all those who have helped them, but that is ultimately moving, inspiring and triumphant.

As a matter of fact, you could say the poor little rich girl is the ultimate poster child for Money Can’t Buy Happiness — even if she is no longer a child. Billionaire real estate stud Logan Crawford is as famous for his less-than-platinum reputation as he is his business empire. In thirty-eight years he’s never fallen in love, and that’s just fine with him — until he meets Emma. But Emma’s not buying into Logan’s seductive ways. Well, maybe just a little, but she’s definitely going into the affair with her eyes wide open. She’s no fool. At least not any more. Her deceased husband saw to that.

Except things don’t go exactly as Emma has predicted, and when Philadelphia’s most beloved citizen become the city’s most notorious criminal, she needs to do a lot more than clear her name if she wants to save her budding romance with the billionaire hunk someone is willing to kill for. 2008 Winter Rose Award for Excellence in Romantic Fiction 2008 More Than Magic Award 2008 Laurie Award Key words: vengeful, contemporary, paparazzi, billionaire, murder, crafts & hobbies, second chance

Smart-mouthed food writer and former hard-news reporter Trudi Wells makes her début in DOUBLE SHOT, a boxed set of two complete cozy culinary mystery novels. It includes: KNIFE SKILLS — When the most famous chef in town is murdered with a giant tranchelard cooking knife, novice food writer Trudi Wells uses her hard-news reporting skills to untangle a crooked web of hidden relationships. Smart-mouthed Trudi is definitely no foodie: she knows nothing about fine dining, surviving happily on peanut butter and breakfast cereal. As she uncovers mysterious details about the chef, she learns more than she ever imagined about Continental cuisine, fine wine and the high-end restaurant business. But just as Trudi is about to figure out the puzzle, the murderer starts looking for Trudi. MURDER & PESTLE — Trudi has a new career in the beautiful and mysterious city of Prague. Sure, she might not be speaking to her mother, and she might be dreaming about her new coworker more than she should, but Trudi still feels like she has grown up. Just like she planned, Trudi is gaining firsthand experience with Old World cuisine. But her plans are ruined when her elderly landlady dies in puzzling circumstances: Trudi is certain the old lady has been murdered, despite the police claiming it was an accident. No matter who comes after her, Trudi is determined to discover the truth of what really happened to the owner of Prague’s most famous spice shop.

If you haven’t read the novels, no worries. Enjoy the ride! The stories were released in the following order: Callsign: King – Book 1 Callsign: Queen Callsign: Rook Callsign: King – Book 2 – Underworld Callsign: Bishop Callsign: Knight Callsign: Deep Blue Callsign: King – Book 3 – Blackout This collection contains the Knight and Deep Blue stories. The three King books were collected in the bestselling Callsign: King – The Brainstorm Trilogy. The Queen, Rook and Bishop stories were collected in the Callsign – Triple Shot collection. CALLSIGN: KNIGHT When a team of Delta operators goes missing in Shenhuang, one of China’s newly constructed ghost cities, Shin Dae-jung—Callsign: Knight, is called in to assist. But the Osprey transporting him to the scene falls prey to an EMP attack and is forced to crash land atop a parking garage. With a wounded pilot in tow, Knight explores the empty city for signs of life and finds two terrified children, who warn him that something monstrous is stalking the city. When the pilot disappears, leaving a pool of blood and spent bullet casings behind, Knight doesn’t doubt their story. As bullets fly and bodies drop, Knight must protect the children, uncover the fate of the missing Delta team and defend against an unstoppable killer, whose ability to regenerate and whose horrible appearance reminds him of something he’s faced before—the mythological Hydra. But he’s not alone in the surreal abandoned city. A team of SAS soldiers, along with Anna Beck, a former member of Manifold Genetics’ private security force, join the fray. Together, they fight—and die—against a nightmare that follows its objective to the end: kill them all. CALLSIGN: DEEP BLUE Tom Duncan—Callsign: Deep Blue, former Army ranger, former president of the United States and handler of the black ops force known as Chess Team, is visiting the team’s new secret headquarters. The underground facility, known as Alpha, once belonged to Manifold Genetics, a corrupt corporation shut down by Chess Team. But despite being abandoned for years, Alpha still hides secrets. Security doors slam shut and lock, sealing Duncan and his assistants inside. As Matt Carrack, the leader of Duncan’s security team, attempts to gain access, Duncan discovers they are not alone inside the abandoned facility. High tech intruders have infiltrated the base, their goal unknown. But a far greater threat rises from the subterranean depths beneath Alpha—failed regenerative experiments from the days of Manifold, and they’re fast, hostile and hungry. While the security team are beset by ingenious death traps, determined mercenaries and vicious creatures that defy their imaginations, Duncan and his personal bodyguard must battle the growing tide of creatures, stave off the incursion of enemy forces and prevent the violent intruders from releasing the horror currently contained inside Alpha, to an unsuspecting outside world. And as the battle rages, a bomb quietly counts down in the shadows.

Tony Brasunas's award-winning debut memoir is a portrait of life in China and a groundbreaking story of coming of age in today's era of globalization. In a classroom in sultry Guangzhou, having never before left the United States nor taught a class on anything, armed only with a beginner's grasp of the language, Brasunas confronts thirty-seven expectant ninth graders in white uniforms. When he fails repeatedly -- often humorously -- in the tense classroom, an intrinsic curiosity about Chinese culture and about himself springs from within and drives him not only to keep trying with his ninth graders, but to trust his instincts in the dishonest streets as well, and ultimately to make new friends from all walks of life. When the school year ends, Brasunas sets off with just a backpack across the vast hinterlands of China, along the Silk Road in the north, and to the edge of ancient Tibet in the west. His intrepid odyssey not only brings him face to face with a rich tapestry of people -- from Muslim political dissidents in Linxia to monks in mountainous Tibetan monasteries -- but also plunges him into unexpected peril, torturous romance, and wild twists of fate that transform his basic understanding of right and wrong, beauty and truth, suffering and happiness. Bold and inspiring, Double Happiness is a vivid journey across China and through the soul of a young American. EDITORIAL REVIEWS "A very talented writer... a journey filled with rich insight."

(Midwest Book Review) "This book will sweep you across the ocean to another land, and you will take a journey that will leave you forever changed." (The Book Wheel) "A brilliant new writer... an unforgettable journey." (Anodea Judith, author of Waking the Global Heart)
