2-27-70 by John Podlaski

I grew up in the city of Detroit and was taught that my heritage and strong family values were important. Every year, our birthdays were a cherished event within the family – especially when it was dad’s special day – we always celebrated his with great fanfare, a special family dinner and dessert.

However, on February 27, 1970, my dad’s birthday, that annual tradition was broken when I was forced into a situation beyond my control. I had to leave home and the family gave me an emotional send off, but the thought and possibility of my never returning devastated them.

This short story follows me on this one special day. Thousands of young men preceded me on this path, and tens of thousands never made it home. Find out where I was heading and why I had to go.


Unwelcomed by John Podlaski

Amy imagined the disapproving spirit of her father watching her. Could she ever be free?

“No Pedigree

NO PEDIGREE Cover2 .jpg 1024 x 1600

(Cover created by 4WillsPublishing)

Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Baylee never quite fit in…anywhere. She was taunted and teased because her clothes had no designer labels, and spit upon because her only pair of shoes had holes in the bottom. The butt of many jokes, she was excluded from all the parties, sneered at by the parents of her peers after school as she waited for the bus, watching them drive away in their fancy cars; assaulted in the most unthinkable fashion.

Having been born to a white father and a black native American mother didn’t make things any easier. In fact, that circumstance made her life ten times worse – until the day she made them all stand up, take notice and choke on their ugly words.

In this short, you’re being introducing to a normal, everyday family, whose lives are altered, not once, but twice by unexpected and unusual circumstances.

“Joyce Winifred Harris-Burkes:  How I Remember My Mama!”


Mama could tell a joke. Next thing you know, you are rolling on the floor from one of them. She loved to play the lottery and was religious with it. If you fail to buy her tickets when she asks you, she will tell you that was the winning number … “If you had done what I asked you, I could have won.” It was classic!

She was just as passionate about her faith and could quote passages from the bible all day long, which she did. She was a good mother and made huge sacrifices for her children.

She was the woman who wanted to be an actress but never got the chance. She was the woman who worked at a naval air base in Alameda County, California, screwing riveters in wings of airplanes. They were called “Rosie the Riveter” in World War II.

She was the constant in our lives.

This is how I remember my mama!

“Ronald L. Powell:  Missing in Action”

Ronald L. Powell: Missing in Action by [Harris-Slaughter, Shirley]

My brother dropped out of school and joined the Marines around 1963. By the time our Mother found him (he enlisted without telling anyone) he had been through basic training and was preparing to go to war. He told her in a letter, “Mom, I don’t think I’m going to make it …”

This is a memoir of my brave brother, Ronald Louis Powell, who died under mysterious circumstances along with 57 of his comrades. Nothing was ever said or written about this tragedy.

This is my way of keeping his story alive and bringing some closure.

“Newspaper Chronicles”

NEWSPAPER CHRONICLES by [Harris-Slaughter, Shirley]

Based on a true story.

“A Citizen’s Group In Action: Saving A Train Station”

A CITIZEN’S GROUP IN ACTION: Saving a Train Station by [Harris-Slaughter, Shirley]

Around 1992, this study was pulled together for one specific purpose – to save the Michigan Central Depot, a train station in downtown Detroit. After it was boarded up in the 1980s, I agonized about what was happening to the building as it descended into neglect and decay; with no hope of it ever rising to its former glory. I needed to form a plan and a way to do it. Attending a university afforded me that opportunity. I always loved trains even though there was never a chance for me to experience the thrill of it all growing up. My mother was pregnant with me when she traveled from California, all the way to Detroit, to be with my dad’s family while he was stationed in Guam during World War II. So I always thought that I was touched in the womb. There was no other way to explain this love affair with trains.

Handprints by Wanda Fischer

After their husbands commit them to a state mental institution in Massachusetts, two women become friends. Were they–and the other women who filled the place–even mentally ill? Anne was eccentric, to be sure, and her Boston fireman husband decided it was more than he could bear. Edna loved to read and write poetry; her husband said she wasn’t “a good wife,” so he called the constable and had her taken away to the state mental hospital. She craved companionship and found Anne during her first night at the place. Edna called Anne “Anne of Green Gables”; she told everyone who’d listen that she was Edna St. Vincent Millay. This novella looks at the way they cope with spending the rest of their lives in a state mental institution with humor and Anne’s visitors from the outside world–and how they make a Christmas surprise visit to the site of the old mental hospital as spirits after their deaths.

    Open, Shut by Nonnie Jules 4/5
    Thought-provoking Story about Beliefs and Relationships
    Open, Shut by Nonnie Jules is a poignant short story about a family who experiences the death of a loved one. Darcy Lynn’s parents were atheists and talking about faith was strictly prohibited in their home. When Darcy’s older sister, Lola was curious about Christianity and began secretly studying the Bible, she was reprimanded by her mother. When someone in the family dies, questions arise… This is a thought-provoking story about beliefs and relationships. ~Bette A. Stevens, author of award-winning children’s picture book AMAZING MATILDA and other books for children and adults.


  3. Here is my review of Jewel, by Jan Sikes. FIVE STARS!

    A poignant tale that has, without a doubt, played out too many times in reality. An impoverished family that consists of a sickly mother and her two daughters, must come to terms with their reality.

    In those days, before the safety net of social assistance, the painful choice was made by Jewel’s mother to send her daughters away, in hopes of a better life.

    Jewel was ushered into an alien world of lavish parties and magnificent homes, but everything comes at a price. It’s impossible not to sympathize with this young woman because of her tragic circumstances, and youthful innocence.

    An emotional connection with characters is the mark of an excellent book. No issues with that in Jewel. It’s a quick read that wraps up neatly, though it left me with the desire to learn one unanswered question.

    I recommend Jewel for the reader who enjoys a short tale of dire straits, desperate measures, and uncertain endings.
