 Davis_Feature.jpg

During his ten year prison sentence, Dan “Tito” Davis penned a 700-page manuscript, which chronicled his thirteen year period on the run from the United States federal government. His writing provided a glimpse into staying alive and out of prison while mixing it up with major drug cartels in Colombia and Mexico; crossing the Darien Gap the worlds most dangerous passageway, sneaking into Germany, getting interrogated in Cuba, and building a resort in Venezuela the same time Hugo Chavez was calling President Bush “the devil” at the United Nations. And while Davis’s exploits were stunning, there was only one problem—he wasn’t a writer.

While living in a halfway house in Wyoming, Davis met with writer Peter Conti and quickly tapped him to “write his story the right way.” For a year the two worked diligently to turn Davis’s raw material into an action-packed memoir, which includes Davis’s life before he went on the lam—how he was making $200,000 a week in college manufacturing White Crosses (speed) and distributing them across the country via the Bandidos motorcycle gang; when he was trafficking thousands of pounds of high grade pot through tunnels and on horse trailers; and how he was set up by his childhood friend.

gloria-feature-image.png

Gloria Hollander Lyon bears witness to the Holocaust in this compelling memoir told from the rare viewpoint of someone who survived seven concentration camps. It is vivid in its detail of her remarkable courage escaping the fate of the gas chambers and provides powerful testimony of her resilience in the face of incomprehensible suffering.

We journey with her from an idyllic childhood in the Czech countryside, through the horror of her Holocaust experiences, to her rescue and rehabilitation by the Swedish Red Cross, life in the loving home of a Swedish family, and her immigration to America.

"Mommy, What's that Number on Your Arm?" also looks at the personal impact of the Holocaust and how Gloria found the strength to speak about unspeakable atrocities and work to educate future generations all over the world.

You Heal You is a collection of inspirational and miraculous healing stories by Jane G. Doyle and seventeen modern day warriors, who have rescued themselves from major life challenges.  In her late twenties, Jane began a thirty-year trail of terror paved with undiagnosed illnesses and debilitating, chronic pain.  She carries readers along her life's journey, her stairway to joy, to recovery.  Storytellers share similar triumphs of self-healing from obstacles such as addition, loss, and physical disease and trauma. You Heal You inspires others, with the assistance of their healing partners, to take control of their lives.  Readers are shown possible ways out of their painful and difficult situations, discover and celebrate the modern day warrior within, and self-heal.

Take the stairs with Jane.  Let life changing stories change your life.

In her book You Heal You: inspirational and miraculous healing stories of modern day warriors Jane G. Doyle tells her story of how she has continued to heal herself despite conventional wisdom the past four years. She is eager to share her story of hope, wonder, and recovery with the world. The book also celebrates the successes of others who have overcome extreme physical disability and emotional challenges. You Heal You shows that healing is possible with belief, determination, and perseverance.
