The Bible says that Methuselah, seven generations removed from Adam and Eve, lived 969 years. Most scientists don't believe it. Many historians are skeptical. Even devout Christians wonder. But Chancery Alamecha knows it's true. After all, she's seven generations removed from Eve, and her mother's celebrating her nine-hundredth birthday tomorrow. Chancery thinks her morning will consist of last minute party planning. She has no idea that a single mistake is about to destroy all her future plans and set her on a forked path. She'll have to choose. Kill her sister and ascend her mother's throne--something she never wanted. Or. Run and hide while her sociopathic twin takes over the world, starting with China. Can Chancery do what it takes to defeat Judica? And even if she can, how can she do it without becoming a monster herself? Still not convinced? Displaced has won several awards and gotten reviews from professional reviewers: ★★★★ AWARDS!! ★★★★ SOVAS 2020 Finalist in Fantasy-Best Voiceover (Audiobook) Whitney Award 2020 Finalist in Fantasy Publisher's Weekly BookLife Prize 2020, Quarter Finalist Professional Reviews: Publisher's Weekly BookLife Prize gave it a 9.25/10 and said, "Displaced, the first novel in Baker's Birthright Saga, boasts a fleet, often inspired story of matriarchal superheroes on a Hawaiian island. The story's heart is the conflict between royal teen twins Chancery, the kind-hearted protagonist, and Judica, her cruel sister and the heir to the throne. Baker's story pulses with exciting incident, and even though this is the first book in a series the climax is consequential and exciting, even as it entices readers with the promise of more. Baker's writing is swift but potent. She invests each scene with the heart of her protagonist, so it's always clear what's most important in each moment. The large cast is clearly described and differentiated, and scenes of action and romance both prove exciting. Chancery's perspective is likably wry for a royal narrator. The dialogue varies from flirty teen banter to regal proclamations, but always is crisply crafted. Baker brings fresh energy and invention to even familiar elements like the inevitable royal succession crisis. Her Evians' powers and customs fascinate, and Displaced never misses an opportunity to jolt readers with a surprise. Chancery is a strong and appealing protagonist, split between two worlds and ultimately dragged into battle against her own twin. Both sisters are vividly drawn, as are their paramours, guards, relations, and friends. A letter from Chancery's mother, after that queen's death, is a moving highlight of the story, and Chancery's exciting choices power the narrative from start to epic climax." Kirkus featured Displaced in the indie section of their print magazine the month they reviewed it, and they said Displaced is, "a fast moving, engaging tale in what promises to be an epic fantasy romance series."

The battle between religion and science, competing methods of knowing ourselves and our world, has been raging for many centuries. Now scientists themselves are looking at cognitive foundations of religion--and arriving at some surprising conclusions. Over the course of the past two decades, scholars have employed insights gleaned from cognitive science, evolutionary biology, and related disciplines to illuminate the study of religion. In Why Religion is Natural and Science Is Not, Robert N. McCauley, one of the founding fathers of the cognitive science of religion, argues that our minds are better suited to religious belief than to scientific inquiry. Drawing on the latest research and illustrating his argument with commonsense examples, McCauley argues that religion has existed for many thousands of years in every society because the kinds of explanations it provides are precisely the kinds that come naturally to human minds. Science, on the other hand, is a much more recent and rare development because it reaches radical conclusions and requires a kind of abstract thinking that only arises consistently under very specific social conditions. Religion makes intuitive sense to us, while science requires a lot of work. McCauley then draws out the larger implications of these findings. The naturalness of religion, he suggests, means that science poses no real threat to it, while the unnaturalness of science puts it in a surprisingly precarious position. Rigorously argued and elegantly written, this provocative book will appeal to anyone interested in the ongoing debate between religion and science, and in the nature and workings of the human mind.

Come feel the cool and shadowed breeze, come smell your way among the trees, come touch rough bark and leathered leaves: Welcome to the night. Welcome to the night, where mice stir and furry moths flutter. Where snails spiral into shells as orb spiders circle in silk. Where the roots of oak trees recover and repair from their time in the light. Where the porcupette eats delicacies—raspberry leaves!—and coos and sings. Come out to the cool, night wood, and buzz and hoot and howl—but do beware of the great horned owl—for it’s wild and it’s windy way out in the woods!

Detective Norelle Phillips is the first African-American woman to serve on the police force in Nyack, New York, a small upstate village. A twenty-year veteran, she postpones retirement to investigate the murder of a young man found dead in the town park. Detective Phillips and her partner, Detective Henry Stark, dig into what she assumes is her last homicide. At first it appears to be an isolated case, but a month later a second stabbing victim is found. She links the murders together when a third man is also found stabbed to death in the park. All three young men had been in the company of an exotic, long-haired beauty just hours before their deaths. The investigation takes a twist when evidence reveals an unsolved crime committed twenty-five years earlier may be connected to the murders. Her resolve to find the killers or killers leads her to a long list of suspects: an elusive drug dealer, an ex-con, an unwed addict runaway, a wealthy tycoon with powerful political ties to village government, and a judge with a deadly secret. Norelles unique combination of spunk and intuition come through in the end. Her determination is fueled by her anger and surprise at the heinous crime committed in her tranquil village of Nyack, a small town north of New York City that relies on tourism for its revenue. The town is unique with its combination of old-world charm and big-city attitudes.
