I Couldn't Lay in the Bed They Made
by Kimberly Biller

This is re-edited 2nd edition. This is the memoir of an abused child turned young bride, desperate to escape her life and the past that drives her. The writer tells you what she endured growing up with severely abusive parents. By the age of 2 she suffered not only physical, mental and sexual abuse, but abandonment as well. Her father was an alcoholic with a very dark side. Her mother was completely co-dependent on the man she thought she couldn't live without. Continuously neglecting and abusing her young children, she favored the drunken womanizer who created the hell in which they lived. Sometimes penniless, most of the time jobless, and always on the verge of homelessness, this memoir will show you what a dysfunctional family was really like in the 70's and 80's. Forced to marry at the young age of 15 would set in motion a chain of events that forever altered the author's life. As the second child bride of three sisters she will show you how much adversity one woman can endure yet still come out on the other end.... miraculously intact.

Salt City
by
Robert C. Fleet

DescriptionSyracuse, upstate New York. The “Salt City.” An apartment building on the edge of The Projects - and Anne Malloy dies, flying out of a sixth floor window, an apparent suicide, while Mark Cornell watches. Mark was there for a purpose, his part-time gig being to snap incriminating photos for a divorce lawyer who happily takes cases over the phone. Watching the apartment was Mark’s assignment. But this assignment has a problem: Mark learns that “Anne Malloy” had died months before, leaving behind a grieving husband. So who is this woman? It’s 1976, before cell phones, internet, and all the easy ways of satisfying curiosities, so Mark Cornell’s search for a name to give the victim makes him a foot soldier slogging personally through the facts. And, as those facts pile up, Mark discovers that he really shouldn't be playing detective, stumbling across the thin line between commerce and crime . . . in the Salt City.
