              Larry Edwards unmasks the emotional trauma of violent loss as he ferrets out new facts to get at the truth of how and why his parents were killed. In 1977, Loren and Joanne Edwards left Puget Sound aboard their 53-foot sailboat Spellbound, destined for French Polynesia. Six month...s later they lay dead aboard their boat in the middle of the Pacifi c Ocean. Larry's younger brother became the prime suspect in the FBI's murder investigation. But federal prosecutors never indicted him, leaving the case unresolved and splitting the Edwards family into feuding factions. Three decades later, a dispute over how to respond to a true-crime book by Ann Rule-which contained an inaccurate account of the case-ripped the tattered family even farther apart. In Dare I Call It Murder?, Larry Edwards sets the record straight, revealing previously undisclosed facts from the investigation as he lays out the case never presented in court. Larry's memoir, however, goes beyond simply telling the untold story of his parents' deaths and refuting the errors in previously published material. His broader goal is to see the book generate greater awareness of and conversations about violent loss, its impact on the survivors and their families, and the troubling effects of post-traumatic stress (PTSD). www.DareICallItMurder.com

              What the Private Saw: The Civil War Letters & Diaries of Oney Foster Sweet (Hardback, Annotated edition)

              What the Private Saw is definitely one of the very best of the many published collections of Civil War letters and diaries. Pvt. O. F. Sweet of the 1st Pennsylvania Light Artillery wrote prolifically to members of his family and kept a diary from 1863 until just after the close o...f the war. . . . Numerous period photographs supplement the account. What the Private Saw does just that-provide a very clear picture of the Civil War as seen and experienced by a private soldier of the Union. -Gene C. Armistead, author Horses and Mules in the Civil War The generals did not see what the privates saw. So wrote U.S. Civil War veteran Pvt. Oney Foster Sweet, 1st Pennsylvania Light Artillery, 43rd Pennsylvania Volunteers (14th Reserves) Battery F (Ricketts' Battery), 1861-1865. His previously unpublished letters, diaries, and retrospective pieces offer a unique glimpse of the war from the view of a private simply trying to survive a deadly conflagration in which one in five combatants perished. This first-hand account of what the private saw is a distinctive addition to the many existing volumes on the American Civil War. The book is edited and annotated by Larry M. Edwards, an award-winning author, editor, and investigative journalist.

              Beyond the Spotlight: On the Road with Phyllis Diller
               

              Beyond the Spotlight: On the Road with Phyllis Diller (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Skone-Palmer, Robin; Edited by Edwards, Larry M.

              As Robin Skone-Palmer approached the mansion on Rockingham Avenue one hot September afternoon, she didn't know what to expect. Ask for Phyllis Diller, the employment agent had said. Curious as much as nervous, she studied the beautiful house. Three-and-a-half hours later, she wal...ked away wondering if she'd just stepped into Alice's Wonderland. Plane travel, foreign countries, celebrities, and television studios became part of everyday life-from This Is Tom Jones in London to the Glass Festival in Elwood, Indiana. They shared raucous laughter, mind-numbing boredom, and occasionally absolute terror. The work relationship became a friendship that lasted to the day of Phyllis's death at that same Rockingham mansion in Brentwood. Join Robin beyond the spotlight, on the road with Phyllis Diller, as she recalls her days working as a personal secretary for the beloved, ground-breaking comedienne. After leaving Diller's employment, Skone-Palmer became a Diller Dustbiter, a term Diller coined to affectionately describe her favorite former employees. The comedienne even endorsed the memoir (before she died), writing on one of those sticky notes she had used so often: Robin Skone-Palmer has written a book-it is FABULOUS! Diller's son Perry also endorsed the book, saying: I laughed a lot. What a wonderful, insightful, bright observation of a another time and place. You are kind and fair. Thank you for your service to my mother.

              The Journey: Learning to Live with Violent Death
               

              The Journey: Learning to Live with Violent Death (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The Journey: Learning to Live with Violent Loss leads people through a healing process after losing a family member or friend in a violent death. The workbook is written for individuals and facilitators of grief support groups. It is based on the Restorative Retelling model devel...oped by Dr. Edward K. Rynearson. The workbook encourages readers to write about their experiences and guides their grieving and healing process. Nationally, there are about 50,000 violent deaths annually. It is estimated that from that number, there are an additional ten to twelve people connected to the victim who are significantly impacted by this loss. These numbers do not take into account returning soldiers and their families who have been impacted by violent death as well. This workbook is a resource for those who want to conduct a support group or who may wish to strengthen their ability to live with what has happened more privately. __________ What people are saying about The Journey workbook: The Journey is a wonderful and worthwhile addition to the field of Violent Death Material. The current amount of material in this field is quite sparse and The Journey will prove to be valuable for professionals working with this population and for the co-victims as well. The Journey is unique in that the material can be used both in groups and individually and therefore will serve a multitude of purposes heretofore not available. Deborah Spungen, author of And I Don't Want to Live This Life and founder of Families of Murder Victims in Philadelphia Connie Saindon has brought the theoretical into the practical with this user-friendly workbook for family and friends of those who have died traumatically. In addition, therapists and support group leaders will find many helpful tools here. Experiencing this workbook will help people move through their grieving journey with authenticity and eventually find themselves more resilient.
