"It's an entertaining story that will play at your heartstrings. An easy, light read about an old and emotionally-broken introverted Jew, a lonely nine-year-old son of a racist bigot, and the salvation found through their forced friendship. It may make you laugh and cry -maybe at the same time." Robert S. -Montreal, Canada Once an amusing extrovert with a reputation as a prankster, Mr. Rosen is entering his senior years as a stoic, thirty-year converted introvert who hates change, has little to no interest in people and is more than content to have his wife sit in the navigator's seat of his life. Since becoming a practising introvert, there have been almost no changes in his life, and for the few that there were, his wife had walked him through them, including the recent move to a much smaller home in a lower/middle-class neighbourhood where he lives directly next door to a racist whose nine-year-old son addresses him as Mr. Jew. Mr. Rosen had seen the move coming, and he is very much aware of the enormous change to come sometime in the, hopefully, far off future; though, he refuses to give it any attention. That change will come on slowly and painfully and will eventually force him to chart his own life's route. This heartwarming and feel-good novel offers a roller-coaster ride of emotion as Mr. Rosen's habitual world begins to implode while on a collision course with the chaotic world of an innocent child, its troubled mother and vengeful father. **Five Stars** "I cried -only to have a smile brought to my face before the tears even dried." Carol H.F. *Warning* The novel contains a section of strong language and involves story elements of death, alcoholism, and domestic violence. Not recommended for those under the age of fourteen. ABOUT THE SERIES The first of the four stand-alone novels in the evocative and not-so-nuclear family saga series called Herring Cove Road where a small group of troubled individuals, dealing with their own personal issues, accidentally come together to form a family unit, and then while struggling to maintain it, are forced to deal with its dark results, such as: racism, death, murder, suicide and much more. Taking place primarily in the 70's, with believable characters and mostly situated in several areas of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series chronicles the actions (and their results) of an old and introverted Jewish man, a struggling mother, her naive and lonely son, and a boy streetwise beyond his years. 1) On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Jew and the Goy Boy 2) Still on Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, Death 3) Off Herring Cove Road: The Problem Being Blue 4) Before Herring Cove Road: Ruth Goldman and the Nincompoop (A Love Story)

ABOUT THE SERIES The third of the four stand-alone novels in the evocative and not-so-nuclear family saga series Herring Cove Road, where a small group of troubled individuals, dealing with their own personal issues, accidentally come together to form a family unit, and then while struggling to maintain it, are forced to deal with its dark results, such as: racism, death, murder, suicide and much more. Taking place primarily in the 70's, with believable characters and mostly situated in several areas of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series chronicles the actions (and their results) of an old and introverted Jewish man, a struggling mother, her naive and lonely son, and a boy streetwise beyond his years. Be warned, each of the novels in this touching series offers an emotional rollercoaster ride from its beginning to its surprising and, perhaps, shocking ending. Volume 1: On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Jew and the Goy Boy Volume 2: Still on Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, Death Volume 3: Off Herring Cove Road: The Problem Being Blue **Coming October 31, 2014** Volume 4: Before Herring Cove Road: A Love Story **Coming April 1, 2016** ABOUT THIS NOVEL With Blue's father in prison for selling marijuana and his mother estranged for over the last seven years, Blue is doing well, all considering. As the second addition to the not-so-nuclear Dixon family of Lisa, her ten-year-old son, Dwight, and the retired, Jewish introvert, Av, Blue finds himself living in a much better area of Halifax, Nova Scotia, going to a much better school and for the first time, actually applying himself academically as he struggles to fit in. All that's soon threatened when Blue's estranged mother returns to take him away, and around the the same time, he's harassed and threatened by his father's affiliation with the very dangerous, local biker gang to whom his father owes money. This third volume in the Herring Cove Road family saga follows Blue and his surrogate family as they're forced to deal with the quickly escalating problems that threaten both the family unit and its members. Warning: This third novel in the Herring Cove Road series includes violence and coarse language and involves situations of murder and suicide.

** "More than just another mystery. This one grabs you by the heart" -Review by Karen Laird of Under the Shade Tree Blog.** The first murder of a child raised eyebrows, the second raised alarms. Ten-year old Dewey is moving, and he couldn't be more excited; though, he's alone in his enthusiasm. Lisa, his mother, and recently retired Avriel, his next door neighbour and best buddy, don't share his excitement regarding the move from the bungalow in a middle class neighbourhood to a dirty basement level apartment in the lower-class neighbourhood at the edge of Halifax's city limits where two murders have recently occurred. This sometimes lighthearted and at other times intense novel follows Dewey as he befriends a streetwise boy and a boy who only talks through whispers, learns the pros and cons of friendship and is stalked by a killer preying on children. *Warning* The novel contains speckles of strong language and involves disturbing story elements.
