RN Bethany Morgan's life changes in an instant when the broken and bloodied body of her husband, Marshall, is wheeled past her and into the emergency department trauma bay. As his condition worsens, she struggles with the horrific memories of a monstrous creature that attacked her and killed her brother and sister when she was five years old. Unable to consider life without Marshall, Bethany embarks on a spiritual journey into hell to save his life. When she desperately accepts the help of an angelic being, she is propelled back in time to face the reality of her memories. Who and what they discover in an ancient subterranean cavern forever changes their views on religion and life itself. Thus begins the first book in the series: The Traveler. In the forested rolling hills of Wisconsin lives a creature unlike any other on earth. Thirty-five years ago, it killed six innocent young children who were playing in the cemetery one night. Five-year-old Bethany Carr was the only survivor, and she's locked away the memories of the attack deep inside her fragile mind. Though she is happily married, her daily struggle for normalcy is put to the test when her husband lies fighting for his life in the ICU. As the pieces of her memories burst from Bethany's mind, she prays for guidance and strength from her Bible, but when her husband welcomes death, she seeks help from another realm. Desperate to save her husband's life, Bethany cautiously allows her friend Rose to bring her Ouija board, and they contact the other side. Now, with the portal open, an angelic presence offers help...but for a hefty price. Bethany follows Marshall's soul into Hell to save him, and together, they return to the dead-land of her nightmares to discover the truth of what she can't remember. Bound by honor to repay the angel who helped save Marshall's life, Bethany and Marshall return to Wisconsin to save other children who have been abducted by the creature. The secrets they unravel open their eyes to the hidden conspiracies of this world, and propel them forward to fight the eternal enemy. Melissa Moye has been a registered nurse for 21 years. She works in ICU, and she lives on 10 acres in the beautiful country of North Florida. Armed with an active imagination and a computer, she creates compelling, almost believable stories of ghosts, aliens, and government conspiracies. She lives with her husband of 26 years; together, they enjoy riding their Harleys, exercising, and sitting under the stars at night, looking for UFOs. Melissa's other hobbies include nature photography, yoga, tai chi, and meditation. Melissa can be contacted at [email protected]

What makes young people care about themselves, others, their communities, and their futures? In Why Theatre Matters, Kathleen Gallagher uses the drama classroom as a window into the daily challenges of marginalized youth in Toronto, Boston, Taipei, and Lucknow. An ethnographic study which mixes quantitative and qualitative methodology in an international multi-site project, Why Theatre Matters ties together the issues of urban and arts education through the lens of student engagement. Gallagher’s research presents a framework for understanding student involvement at school in the context of students’ families and communities, as well as changing social, political, and economic realities around the world. Taking the reader into the classroom through the voices of the students themselves, Gallagher illustrates how creative expression through theatre can act as a rehearsal space for real, material struggles and for democratic participation. Why Theatre Matters is an invigorating challenge to the myths that surround urban youth and an impressive study of theatre’s transformative potential.
