Parties are not Madeline’s thing.
Being social isn’t her thing. She’s a five-foot eight-inch industrial-strength loser. She’s invisible. She’s no one. She could drop dead in class and no one would notice.
So why does she accept an invitation — from someone she barely knows — to the party of the year?
It’s definitely not because Mark Alister is going. Popular, attractive, universally desired Mark Alister. A boy like that would never even look at a train wreck like her.
But . . . he does! He talks to her! They fall in love! And they live happily ever after. The end.
Yeah — not a chance. Maybe if she lived in a Disney movie. In reality, Madeline has walked straight into a trap — one which no amount of wishing on stars can save her from. Mark is going to make her face everything she’s been hiding from for the past seven years. And the truth about Madeline Parker could either fix her, and make her worthy of being loved . . . or it could kill her.

My first book-Through the Mind’s Eye: A Journey of Self-Discovery is a candid and honest depiction of my thought process while completing an addictions treatment program in a facility in the downtown east side of Vancouver. Upon entering the facility at the age of forty-nine simply because my only other choice would have been that of a pine box, and progressing now to two and a half years clean and sober, this book covers some of my past that relates to the entire recovery process, and in turn my subsequent continued recovery and all of the positives of living a life free from alcohol. Detailing the difficulties I did encounter along the way, the people, the priorities and most of all the happiness I have now found.
How To Become a Successful (recovering) Alcoholic
Sobriety isn’t a destination, it’s an ongoing journey, one with which J.P. Willson is all too familiar. In How to Become a Successful (recovering) Alcoholic, Willson is eager to offer whatever insights he can for those embarking on the same road. This memoir examines how his addiction contributed to and informed some of the choices and behaviours that ultimately led him to Vancouver’s Downtown East Side.
Make no mistake, however; though it contains its fair share of hard truths and regrets, this is not a sob story and does not wallow in what might have been. Instead this is a story of success and redemption through hard work.
His first book, Through the Mind’s Eye: A Journey of Self-Discovery, was about getting sober. This book is about something much harder: staying there.
Written while working as a chef at the Salvation Army Harbour Light Addiction and Recovery Rehabilitation Centre, it is a testament both to what is possible with the right mindset—and what is all too probable without it.

‘Deep Space Accountant’ is his first novel, and the first book in the Sphere of Influence series – a science fiction universe filled with adventure, comedy, a little romance and some dodgy book-keeping.
In ‘Deep Space Accountant’ we meet Elton D Philpotts, whose dream job with the Space Corps is nothing like the glamorous, planet-hopping lifestyle he expected.
But then he sees things he should not have seen: A hidden ledger, dubious accounting transactions, bogus gate receipts.
And when a whole starship disappears who do you think they’re going to blame?
A frantic race across the Sphere of Influence takes Elton into adventure and dangers he could never have imagined. And now there’s a whole planet to save.
Chris G. Wright
Chris G. Wright was born in Corfu, Greece in 1988, to a Greek father and Northern Irish mother. From a young age, his imagination was fed by science fiction movies and his father’s storytelling, and his love for books came from his mother’s abundance of fiction. He studied Marketing , though his dream was to become an Air Force pilot. At some point, he even became a mixologist. Fantasy author R.A. Salvatore inspired him to become a writer when he picked up Homeland, the Dark Elf Trilogy at the age of 13. Chris dedicated his debut novel to Salvatore 15 years later. However, as writing had been a hobby for over fifteen years, family and friends persuaded him to try his luck with self-publishing a draft of 400 pages. Since February 2016, the draft gradually became The Alliance, Volume 1 of The Evox Chronicles. He now lives in Bath, England with his partner, enjoying a simple life. His real dream is to live to see the world become a better place.
