Jang consistently bullies his eighth grade science teacher, Mrs. P with mean and annoying pranks; but some of his classmates have had enough. They give Jang a dose of his own medicine with a prank of their own.  Unexpectedly, Jang becomes a hero after he saves Mrs. P’s life, extinguishing a fire in her hair from a chemistry experiment gone wrong. While recovering from her accident, Mrs. P experiences a stroke of good fortune in her life because of an ancient Korean traditional belief that says a person will have good luck if he or she dreams or sees someone with their hair on fire.

At that moment, Jang knew he was in big trouble and Mrs. P. meant business. She was angrier than the queen hornet  whose nest had just been knocked down from a tree. Jang decided to free himself from his desk no matter how he had to do it. At the count of three, Jang pushed, pressing his hands as hard as he could against the bottom of his chair. As Jang pushed, he heard the bottom of his pants give way like the sound of fabric tearing.


As Jang stood from his seat, he could feel a breeze sweeping through the massive, gaping hole in his pants in his lower back side. Everyone broke out in side-splitting laughter as Jang sheepishly walked toward Mrs. P.’s desk, holding his hands over his torn pants and trying to cover his bare upper legs. Jang held his head down over the humiliation from his classmates.

“What’s so funny?” Mrs. P. asked.

#BookReview “This Time Always” by Suzette D. Harrison

tour banner





I enjoyed this story about average people dealing with timely issues and the normal struggles of life in a realistic way.

Niyana Nichols and Omari Josef, two successful professionals, each lead quiet, disciplined lives, in part because of emotionally painful pasts. When the two meet at the college graduation of Niyana’s youngest daughter, they’re both surprised by the spark between them. Omari has been closed off to relationships since he divorced his manipulative, adulterous wife twelve years ago, and Niyana’s been burdened by guilt as much as grief since losing her husband suddenly almost three years ago.

These two have great chemistry and their banter is fresh and not forced. I loved their openness and honesty, and willingness to listen.

However, there is one thing Niyana hasn’t told Omari… she has alopecia areata totalis and she wears wigs to cover her baldness.

I loved the way the condition was covered, that other women who had it were included, and that the struggles of identity and self-esteem were discussed.

While Omari has made it clear he has no problem with Niyana’s menopause issues and their seven-year age difference, she hesitates to tell him about her baldness because she fears his reaction and because while she’s accepted her condition, she still isn’t sure of how she will live with it.

Toni, Niyana’s BFF, and Brenda, Omari’s scheming ex-wife, are two well-written characters who enhance the story, adding to its depth. But be warned… Brenda will make you want to lay hands, and not to heal.

A solid, satisfying ending is yet open enough to make me wonder if we’ll visit these characters again, and I wouldn’t mind that at all.





She’s 53. He’s 46. Your point is?

Vivacious Niyana Nichols isn’t looking for love. Between the demands of work as a Wellness Clinic Administrator, recent widowhood, and being there for her two beautiful daughters, love has taken a back seat for the fifty-three-year-old. To make matters worse, she’s also suffering from Alopecia. Yet, when Niyana meets her daughter’s handsome professor, she is faced with emotions she thought she’d buried with her husband.

Divorced single father and African-American Studies professor, Omari Josef, is devoted to his career. When the forty-six-year-old grandfather meets the gorgeous and spirited Niyana, he’s forced to rethink his own happiness. Their age difference doesn’t matter to him. What does is making sure she realizes that she’s a woman worth cherishing. Will the sudden reappearance of Omari’s ex-wife wreak havoc in his life? Or will their undeniable attraction grow into something solid and abiding?

A tiny town. A broken tavern. And one woman searching for a place to belong.

Logan Cole is used to getting her way and what she wants more than anything is for her father to get out of jail and restore her old life in New York. All she has to do is wait for his scandals to fade and the online rancor against her family to subside. Low on cash and out of options, she takes a bus north looking for anonymity and stops in the smallest town she can find: Ramsbolt, Maine.

When she stumbles into Helen’s Tavern, she finds a place in need of a make-over and a grandmotherly woman who could use some help. Soon, she finds herself growing fond of the bar, Helen, and the town. She’s even found a friend in Grey, the local plumber. The tiny town puts her at a crossroads: keep hiding her identity to preserve her new reputation or let down her guard and reveal her true self to the people she’s grown to love. But the choice is ripped from her hands when tragedy strikes the bar and saving it requires every tool at her disposal.

Can Logan find a true home among the people of Ramsbolt Maine?

The Collected Stories of Ramsbolt is a series by Jennifer M. Lane, award-winning author Of Metal and Earth and Stick Figures from Ramsbolt. Fresh and heart-warming, the series tells the stories of a small town looking for belonging.

Chapter One

Logan Cole had never been on a bus in her life. As she stretched her legs and stumbled onto the sidewalk at the tip of Maine, she cursed the eight hour learning experience and swore never to do it again.

The last stop before the border was less like a terminal and more like a dead end. No benches, no depot, no ticketing window. And no taxis. Just a little yellow house with leaning porch surrounded by scruffy blueberry shrubs. At least it wasn’t sweltering out.

She yanked her black Rimowa suitcase, one of the few things the FBI let her keep, from the bottom of the bus. She gave the driver a wry smile and thanked him for the trip. It wasn’t his fault a woman coughed and crinkled candy wrappers the whole way, and that guy with his earbuds in behind her never learned to sing.

“Six hundred miles better be far enough.” She mumbled to herself as she dragged the suitcase down the sidewalk, fumbling for her phone in her purse. It was a habit she still hadn’t broken, opening apps to fill a void, but she’d deleted Twitter, Facebook, and the rest of them when the threats started pouring in. Eight months, four court cases, a thousand stories in the news, and she still hadn’t gotten used to being without social media. Being disconnected was better than scrolling through contempt, though.

“Battery’s almost dead. Map won’t load. Damn it.” She walked back the way she’d come, past quaint little houses and blueberry bushes, back to the bar she’d seen a mile or so before. It was across from a cheap motel with moldy siding and mildewed plastic chairs. The bar itself was windowless and brick. Definitely not the kind of place where someone would look for one of the wealthiest people in the country. Or someone who used to be.

She paused at an intersection and started a text to her mom, a quick note to say she was far from the gossip and rumors, safe from tabloid headlines squawking about a Cole Curse, and nowhere near the internet trolls who flooded her notifications with threats, saying they knew where to find her and what they would do to her when they did. All because of her father.

She waited among the cigarette butts and rusted beer caps while her text bounced its way to France.

Delivered. Three dots appeared. Her mother’s reply came slow.

Good luck. Lay low. I’ll send money if I can. Try to blend in.

Logan sent back a smiley face and a greeting for her aunt and uncle.

Letting her phone fall back in her purse, she swallowed hard and tugged hem of her T-shirt down over her jeans. Her heart pounded so loud she wouldn’t be able to hear traffic if there’d been any. But the intersection was dead. The only other animate object in that town was the little orange hand blinking on the stop light, telling her not to walk.

The light changed and a little white man blinked, urging her to cross the street before it was too late. By the look of the town nothing was urgent. The only signs of life were two cars in the bar’s parking lot. They could be abandoned for all she knew.

A countdown timer marked off the seconds. Eleven. Ten.

Left to the motel. Straight to the bar. Neither option looked all that inviting.

For the first time since she left New York, rage, hot as the surface of the sun, boiled within her. She was supposed to be in an air conditioned office somewhere, running a foundation. Sipping a latte that came from cart. Logan kicked a beer cap into the street, and it skittered into a pothole.

Five. Four.

The little man on the pedestrian signal had his whole life together. He had purpose and goals and a job. He had an identity, and everyone knew who he was. Logan had all of that until her father screwed up, and the government charged him with money laundering and took it all away. All she had left were some comfy pants shoved in a suitcase and a cell phone plan she couldn’t afford. She squeezed the handle of her suitcase so tight her knuckles turned white.

Two. One.

The Do Not Walk signal blinked, and she crossed the street defiant.

The sidewalk rippled. Uneven slabs of concrete were mere islands, broken by the freeze and thaw of ice, lost in a sea of weeds and road dirt. She faced the bar.

When she opened that door, she would find herself in a whole new world. There would be questions. What was her name? Where did she come from? Maybe they would recognize her right away from the newspapers, the tabloids, Twitter. She wasn’t prepared for any of it, and she never would be. She didn’t even know how to fill out a job application. What was she supposed to say? I’m a Yale graduate with a degree in Art History, the daughter of a felon, and I’ve come to scrub your bathroom?

The sun would set in a few hours, and that motel did not look hospitable. The keys to a job and a cheap apartment were somewhere in that bar.

Taking in a shaky breath of Maine air, she held it in until her lungs soaked it up, then let out a steady stream of all she had left.

“Get in there and prove your mother wrong. You are still a Cole and Coles do not give up. We don’t stand on the sidewalk and talk to ourselves, either.”

Her whole future lay ahead of her. She just had to get by until her dad set it right. Shoulders back, head up, she opened
