Monrovia Authors

After writing a book and putting it on-line I started wondering if there were other Monrovia authors out there, so I invited them to submit their latest book. Here they are, with information about their books, and links. - Brad Haugaard

Title: A Fistful of God
She's never taken a drink, but she's recovering from alcoholism all the same.

After the death of her father, teenager Aidyn Pierce spends all her time cleaning up her mother's messes. So when Mom announces she's getting sober, Aidyn doesn't believe her. Mom has tried before, and Aidyn knows there will come a time-a day, a week, maybe even a month from now-when the cravings will be too much, and her mother will start drinking again. So, when Aidyn is encouraged to attend support meetings, she refuses. No point in wasting her time when her mother's going to drink again, anyway.

But what Aidyn doesn't count on is the healing power of love and friendship, and the incredible strength of God to walk both mother and daughter through the dark valley of addiction and recovery.

Title: Stop Requested
The strange connections people make on buses and trains in Los Angeles. Conversations and encounters on the first train in and waiting for the last bus home. It's illustrated by Stanley J. Zappa, a great artist. He's the nephew of Frank Zappa.

"A series of rueful, witty and occasionally heartwrenching stories about riding the bus in L.A. These are folks living on the margin between nothing and everything, stuck between Rodeo Drive and The Highway To Nowhere. Doyle's gift is in capturing those tiny dramatic moments that linger for a brief moment on the periphery of vision."

Author: Timothy C. Lim
Title: Politics in East Asia: Explaining Change and Continuity

It's basically for students, but anyone is interested in better understanding economic and political development in China, Japan, South Korea, North Korea, and Taiwan might be interested.

"This systematic, innovative introduction to the dynamic politics and political economies of China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, and Taiwan teaches students how to think analytically, critically, and independently about the most significant developments in the region.

The text offers in-depth coverage of the unique experiences of each country, all within the framework of an explicit comparative perspective. Throughout, the five countries are contrasted with one another to maximize opportunities for learning. Covering the intertwined issues of politics, economics, and culture, this is a book that is ideally suited for assignment in any social science course on East Asia."

Title: The Outlander
