Murder on the Spanish Seas

release date: May 31, 2022
Murder on the Spanish Seas
Jesse O''Hara is profane, introverted, and not frequently sober – and has just lost another job. “A million-dollar brain and a ten-cent personality,” her last employer said. With nothing better to do, Jesse reluctantly accepts the gift of a luxury cruise around the Iberian Peninsula. She’s not sure she can drink enough to keep her boredom at bay, but that''s the least of her problems. From the very first moment of the cruise, it''s clear to Jesse that something is very wrong. Aided by her near-photographic memory, Jesse investigates a series of strange incidents on the ship and uncovers what looks like a terrorist plot in the works. But with each new layer uncovered, her perception shifts and broadens-- and someone doesn’t want her poking around. For Jesse, bruised and concussed is preferable to tan and relaxed, so she ignores the mounting danger even as she closes in on the villains, who have perfectly timed their grand finale... Murder on the Spanish Seas is a riveting, whip-smart, and smart-aleck debut thriller that will keep you on your toes just as frequently as it keeps you in stitches. A perfect read for fans of Ruth Ware and Janet Evanovich.

The Break-Up Book Club
Named one of 2021’s Best Beach Reads by Bustle ∙ Country Living ∙ Cosmopolitan ∙ Augusta Chronicle ∙ E! Online ∙ PureWow ∙ SheReads ∙ and more! Breakups, like book clubs, come in many shapes and sizes and can take us on unexpected journeys as four women discover in this funny and heartwarming exploration of friendship from the USA Today bestselling author of Ten Beach Road and My Ex-Best Friend’s Wedding. On paper, Jazmine, Judith, Erin and Sara have little in common – they’re very different people leading very different lives. And yet at book club meetings in an historic carriage house turned bookstore, they bond over a shared love of reading (and more than a little wine) as well as the growing realization that their lives are not turning out like they expected. Former tennis star Jazmine is a top sports agent balancing a career and single motherhood. Judith is an empty nester questioning her marriage and the supporting role she chose. Erin’s high school sweetheart and fiancé develops a bad case of cold feet, and Sara’s husband takes a job out of town saddling Sara with a difficult mother-in-law who believes her son could have done better – not exactly the roommate most women dream of. With the help of books, laughter, and the joy of ever evolving friendships, Jazmine, Judith, Erin and Sara find the courage to navigate new and surprising chapters of their lives as they seek their own versions of happily-ever-after.

Training on Trial

release date: Mar 29, 2022
Training on Trial
While upbeat lingo abounds about “complementing strategic objectives” and “driving productivity,” the fact is that most training does not make a significant enough impact on business results, and when it does, training professionals fail to make a convincing case about the value added to the bottom line. The vaunted “business partnership model” has yet to be realized—and in tough economic times, when the training budget is often the first to be cut, training is on trial for its very existence. Using a courtroom trial as a metaphor, Training on Trial seeks to get to the truth about why training fails and puts the business partnership model to work for real. Readers on both sides of the “courtroom” will learn how to stop viewing training as a cost center, and bridge the gulf between what learning functions deliver and what business units need to execute their strategies. A thought-provoking read for trainers and business unit leaders alike, Training on Trial provides a new application of the Kirkpatrick Four-Level Evaluation Model and a multitude of tips and techniques that allow lessons learned to be put into action now.

The Authority Trap

release date: Sep 15, 2017
The Authority Trap
Not all international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) are created equal, Some have emerged as "leading INGOs" that command deference from various powerful audiences and are well-positioned to influence the practices of states, corporations, and other INGOs. Yet Sarah S. Stroup and Wendy H. Wong make a strong case for the tenuous nature of this position: in order to retain their authority, INGOs such as Greenpeace, Oxfam, and Amnesty International refrain from expressing radical opinions that severely damage their long-term reputation. Stroup and Wong contend such INGOs must constantly adjust their behavior to maintain a delicate equilibrium that preserves their status. Activists, scholars, and students seeking to understand how international organizations garner and conserve power—and how this affects their ability to fulfill their stated missions—will find much of value in The Authority Trap. The authors use case studies that illuminate how INGOs are received by three main audiences: NGO peers, state policymakers, and corporations. In the end, the authors argue, the more authority an INGO has, the more constrained is its ability to affect the conduct of world politics.

Out of the Dark

release date: Jul 12, 2016
Out of the Dark
Out of the Dark is a call for teacher leaders to take a stand against the current neoliberal take over of our educational system today. This book investigates where this political power hold began, theorizes why is it so hard for us to change what is happening, and then explores theory into practice for supporting the development of a democratic curriculum. Out of the Dark highlights example schools in various states that are fighting the monopoly of standardization by implementing their own version of visionary democratic education. This book is purposefully heavy on references as to encourage teachers to become curriculum leaders through research and complicated conversation that they have with themselves and with each other. It is time to stand together against the over utilization and magnified importance of standardized testing in our educational system in the United States. The time is now to envision a democratic education based on an eclectic compilation of curriculum theory and fight for the significant educational contribution of our own professional wisdom, prompting democratic empowerment for our students.

The Horse

release date: Oct 27, 2015
The Horse
A New York Times Bestseller and New York Times Book Review Editors'' Choice A Best Book of 2015, The Wall Street Journal "Love is the driver for Wendy Williams''s new book, The Horse . . . [an] affectionate, thoroughgoing, good-hearted book." —Jaimy Gordon, The New York Times Book Review "Charming and deeply interesting . . . Ms. Williams does a marvelous job." —Pat Shipman, The Wall Street Journal The book horse-lovers have been waiting for Horses have a story to tell, one of resilience, sociability, and intelligence, and of partnership with human beings. In The Horse, the journalist and equestrienne Wendy Williams brings that story brilliantly to life. Williams chronicles the 56-million-year journey of horses as she visits with experts around the world, exploring what our biological affinities and differences can tell us about the bond between horses and humans, and what our longtime companion might think and feel. Indeed, recent scientific breakthroughs regarding the social and cognitive capacities of the horse and its ability to adapt to changing ecosystems indicate that this animal is a major evolutionary triumph. Williams charts the course that leads to our modern Equus-from the protohorse to the Dutch Warmbloods, Thoroughbreds, and cow ponies of the twenty-first century. She observes magnificent ancient cave art in France and Spain that signals a deep respect and admiration for horses well before they were domesticated; visits the mountains of Wyoming with experts in equine behavior to understand the dynamics of free-roaming mustangs; witnesses the fluid gracefulness of the famous Lipizzans of Vienna; contemplates what life is like for the sure-footed, mustachioed Garrano horses who thrive on the rugged terrain of Galicia; meets a family devoted to rehabilitating abandoned mustangs on their New Hampshire farm; celebrates the Takhi horses of Mongolia; and more. She blends profound scientific insights with remarkable stories to create a unique biography of the horse as a sentient being with a fascinating past and a finely nuanced mind. The Horse is a revealing account of the animal who has been at our side through the ages, befriending us and traveling with us over the mountains and across the plains. Enriched by Williams''s own experience with horses, The Horse is a masterful work of narrative nonfiction that pays tribute to this treasure of the natural world.

Featuring an enormous range of discussion questions and case studies—from celebrity coming-out narratives, transgender models, and slash fiction writers to Glee and Modern Family—this textbook offers a timely, informative, and demystifying introduction to this vital intersection in contemporary culture.

My Tattoos

release date: Aug 20, 2021
My Tattoos
My Tattoos is a collection of riveting poems, stark with moments of beauty, the freight of pain and triumph. Here, splendor abounds, hewed with care and precision, in poems that are filmic "delicate . . . strong . . ." and "magically spun." Wendy Hind shows us that poetry can occur anywhere, in a hospital, on the skin, and with conviction, she distills the poetry from even the constant "beeping of" hospital "monitors." Here the poems are, truly, themselves monitors, witnesses, testaments to the poet''s fearlessness. -Saddiq Dzukogi, Poet and Author of Your Crib, My Qibla Wendy Hind''s new book My Tattoos is an emotionally rich and sometimes brutally accurate depiction of medicine''s miracles and limitations. The poems are arranged in three sections: Heart, Soul, and Fierce. The speaker is sometimes reminiscing about being a patient and sometimes about being the parent of a very ill child. The imagery is often striking: her child in an ICU bed looking like the spider''s prey, her own heart ("the wet engine"), the pump that "keeps leaking." Sorrow and pain are often present, but love appears too. In "Fall of Life," the speaker considers that suffering is "an opportunity to go inward" and to prepare for what might be a "spring of surprises." Hind is a stern teacher with a compassionate heart; this book warns us that we are all "lying in the shadow of health." Spend some time with these poems as you ponder that thought; it is time well spent. When we can once again have reading material in our doctors'' waiting rooms, a copy of My Tattoos would be an excellent gift to leave. -Deirdre Neilen, PhD, Editor of The Healing Muse, SUNY Upstate Medical University Wendy Hind''s chapbook My Tattoos creatively and thoughtfully illuminates many of the aspects of complex medical healing. They address not only the inner thoughts and feelings of those who have dedicated their careers to the care of others, but also bring to life the perspectives of patients and families who have been the beneficiaries of modern healthcare and continue to be productive and engaged members of their community. Hind''s collection of poems is a powerful narrative medicine tool to start, continue, and inspire future healing discussions in medical schools and any healing community. -Jeffery P. Gold, MD, Chancellor of University of Nebraska Medical Center Words form in the mind, but they are born of the heart and soul of a life''s experiences. With the highest of highs and lowest of lows forged from her deeply personal perspective Wendy Hind reveals through her poetry the steppingstones of a journey that offers all of us a touchstone to the truth that healing can only begin when the hurt is replaced with hope. Read her words and embrace the reality that no matter what ails you, none of us is alone. -William C. Moyers, Author of Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption and Vice President at Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

An Accidental Memoir
In this collection of deliberately fragmented essays, a talented documentary filmmaker points the lens at herself and explores a succession of personal tragedies. Told from unusual perspectives and in highly figurative language, the essays draw on the Southern Gothic tradition of Flannery O''Connor and feature dark humor, flawed people, disastrous events, and moments of spiritual grace. Taken together they become a meditation on subjects such as death, work, family responsibilities, and raising a child.
