Stella Who?

Author: L.M. Wasylciw      Narrator: Jack Wynters

Stella lived a life of misery – cold, wet and hungry – and on most days she would rather have been dead. But worse than anything else was the humiliation that she felt when she had to beg; shaking a tin-can hoping that a kind person would offer her some change. Stella struggled along, living on the streets of Victoria, hoping to remain anonymous and simply did what it took in order to survive. She never spoke of her past and was determined to keep her life-story a secret. Stella lived within the nameless, faceless, placeless tribe – invisible in the wide open.

Homeless people were once called hobos and applied mostly to transient men, with no family ties, who hopped the rails, often looking for work. It would be impossible to count the numbers of homeless Canadians of today, but it is projected that there could be as many as 30,000 sick, wet, cold and hungry homeless people, hiding somewhere on any given night, and as many as 200,000 on average per year. Homelessness is a social issue that stems from a multitude of concerns: drug addiction, illness and poverty, plus so much more.

NO MEANS NO

Author: L.M. Wasylciw      Narrator:  Jack Wynters

Matthew Blackwell smiled as he stirred Haley’s drink, spiked with enough ketamine to render her unconscious. For many weeks he had been planning this evening, to have sex his way. It was going to be a night to remember. Matthew believed that money was power. With it he got what he wanted and he felt that he could do anything to women. Always at his side was his good friend, Ryan Crowe. Matthew had the financial means and Ryan seemingly had the connections. If Matthew asked, Ryan complied. However, there was something that Ryan did not know – Matthew had a very dark secret.

Nowadays, rape is blandly labelled as non-consensual sex – watering down the vileness of it – further disrespecting the victimized women. Few women report such incidents – primarily because all too many perpetrators go unpunished – further feeding the problem. RAPE is an ever growing concern that must be addressed and recognized for what it is: a dreadful violation of women and a criminal offense.

Forgiveness Be Damned

Author: L.M. Wasylciw      Narrator:  Jack Wynters

Five-year old Tommy lived in a dysfunctional family, plagued with abject poverty, alcohol and child abuse, incest and bestiality. And, even at that young age, he wondered if he could ever escape. It was a life filled with grief, hunger and horror. He hated how those things affected him and his siblings. And he detested his father more and more as the years slipped away. His biggest fear was that the apple would never fall far from the proverbial tree.

Tommy’s story is sad, especially so because child abuse and neglect are problems that have seemingly become a part of our world. And regardless of how far technologies and sciences advance, poverty and despair are all too common, often leading to dysfunctional behaviours. For far too long this problem has been swept away or ignored. It is time to talk about it.

Ashenee Come Home

Author: L.M. Wasylciw      Narrator:  Jack Wynters

This spiritual novel offers a deeper understanding of the old traditions surrounding the lives of the Cree aboriginal people and what it was like when those First People had migrated with the seasons, across the Great Plains. Deeply hidden within Canada’s boreal forests was the home of Ashenee’s people.  

Isolation protected Ashenee and her people from situations that plagued other Cree, First Nations communities: alcoholism, violence, poverty and discontent.

Also, her people did not know that hundreds of aboriginal women from those other villages had been reported missing. Had they known, it might have been seen as a warning.

Elfinville

Author: Professor Scry      Narrator:  Jack Wynters

Nine year old Jacob Tanner, on the nights of the full moon, stole away from his house when his parents were asleep.

He scrambled across the wide lawn into the forest and tripped down the long, winding, narrow trail that led to an enormous moss and lichen covered outcrop. He took with him a magnifying glass, a set of night vision goggles and his book on the stars.

The forest was magical, enchanting and illusionary.

On more than one occasion he was tempted to share his secret with his best friend, Dexter.

And what a secret it was!

Lydia

Author: Professor Scry      Narrator:  Jack Wynters

Emily Walker hated that they were moving to Collingwood House and became distressed when she read the details on the real estate listing – Haunted House.

They moved anyway, four thousand kilometers away from her best friend and to the seaside.

The old house creaked and groaned, things went missing, doors banged, shadows moved from room to room and dead animals were found in unusual places.

Curiously, after weeks of searching, no one could find the one key that led to the tower, the only place in Collingwood House to which they had no access.

Author: Professor Scry      Narrator:  Jack Wynters

Seances, witchcraft, tarot cards, chants and magic.

Life around Sophie was never boring. She did chants, read Tarot Cards and, to Amy’s and Julie’s surprise, during a séance Sophie had seemingly called up her dead Grandmother. Then Sophie received a book from her sister, Anna, on Witches’ Spells, inspiring her to delve deeper into the supernatural.

When they heard that Margie, the crazy lady from down the street, was involved in Witchcraft, Sophie was eager to find out if there was any truth in what people were saying.

If Margie really was a witch then she would certainly be going out on the night of the full moon.

They laid a plan.

They would follow her.

For what could be the harm?

Tao Te Ching: The Book of the Way and Its Virtue

Written by: Lao Tzu        Narrator:  Jack Wynters

A translation into English by A. S. Kline.

The Tao Te Ching (or Daodejing, in pinyin) is a classic Chinese Taoist text dating from at least the fourth century BC. According to tradition it has its origins even earlier, around the sixth century BC. The title may be translated as Instruction Regarding the Way of Virtue. Consisting of 81 short sections in a poetic style, the text ranges widely in content, from practical advice to universal wisdom, embracing politics, society and the personal. The emphasis is on the right view and understanding of existence, the way of the cosmos, and the text sets out to transmit an informed awareness of being that leads to personal harmony. The Taoist inclination to refer to the natural background to human existence when considering the human is widely in evidence. The literary style is terse and often cryptic, so that multiple interpretations of the individual sections are often possible, but the essence of the work is clear, in communicating an approach to life which is in accord with the natural, and so conducive to spiritual tranquility and resilience.

Unbeknown to the Condesa, Throgmorton seeks to make a vast personal fortune from the discovery of the paintings, and plans to use it to reclaim his place in society.

When Ladro and Stuart learns of Throgmorton’s deceit, they begin a battle to stop his plans. In the process, they discover a secret that changes their lives forever.
