“What happens when a real-life book club decides to write their own novel? The result is a fresh, fun story about a group of women who have more in common than just the books they read.”
Tucked away in the pages of history are amazing stories of African American men — slave, runaways, and free– who courageously fought for the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence. Women also fought but with words which penetrated like bullets. And Jewish emigrants gave their lives and fortunes for what America offered. More than twenty-one are celebrated in Courageous Men & Women of the American Revolution. Paperback. 150 pages with color illustrations and chapter resources. Humphries also has other books available on Amazon.
Caryn Block has three new books recently available.

I started this book in Massachusetts in 1973 with the question: How did thirteen disjointed colonies form a new nation when they were held captive by the all-powerful British empire? And aside from Washington, Adams, Franklin, and Jefferson, who stepped up as the supporting cast? Where did they come from? What kind of determination and courage did it take to win against such incredible odds?
I found the stories of over twenty of this heroic supporting cast in bits and pieces in hundreds of places. This book is my attempt to put those stories in one concise book for the benefit of my family and friends.
Unsung Heroes is available at Amazon.

Sally Humphries, a member of Pen-to Paper, recently published Cally and Friends, a delightful sequel to Cally Tales: Cally’s Adventures and Those of Her Friends.
Cally and Friends introduces new friends like the incomparable Suki, Calvin and Hobbs, Tess, Zoe, Paz, Reckless and the memorable Trucker from Montana. Cally also checks back with her old friends from Cally Tales, advising Max about his ears and disclosing Oliver’s adventures in the Serengeti.
Can cats and dogs be friends? Cally extends her paw of friendship to d-o-g-s, beginning with Bella and Buffy, the adorable Shih-Tzus. She finds the antics of Murphy and Wally, Rags, Freddy, Schnitzel, and PBJ somewhat bewildering but intriguing. It all ends with Tig, the cat who decided he was a dog. Of course, Cally’s faithful staff, Sally Humphries, writes down everything she says – well, almost everything.
You can find this humorous and enjoyable read at Amazon.
Congratulations, Sally and Cally
