Mario Almonte and Theresa Manning (archived)

Mario is a public relations specialist and blogger for the Huffington Post who recently self published a literary novel entitled, Theresa Manning. While he's made his career writing on politics, technology and social issues, he was drawn to write this "literary" novel because he got tired of the amount of "pop" fiction being written - fantasy, crime, thriller, horror, etc. He says it seems people want to write genre fiction because there's lots of money if you hit it big, and fewer writers care anymore about the "art" of writing - well-crafted writing that immerses the reader in the beauty of the language. His book is available at http://www.amazon.com/Theresa-Manning-ebook/dp/B006QC11HW

Blessed are the peacemakers...
a white cop, a black kid

Arnold Penxa is a white cop from black Detroit, Michigan determined to save the lives of children no matter the cost, no matter the color. He is an ex war veteran and retired Detroit policeman, now working for a private school security firm,and he sniffs out a conspiracy for a multiple school shooting. The problem is that nobody wants to believe him except for a few close friends, so he's forced to act mostly alone to bust up the plot. Forget the usual suspects. This is the Mad Motor City where the line between common sense and criminal behavior is never clear.
