Grace Blair speaking about “Einstein's Compass a YA Time Traveler Adventure”

Einstein’s Compass by Grace Blair is a “YA Time Traveler Adventure.” Historical fantasy science fiction. The book intertwines events in Albert Einstein’s life with fantastical elements while including scientific concepts. Topics that emerge include coming of age, antisemitism, and bullying. Most of us are familiar with Einstein’s legacy as a scientific genius and a giant of physics. But where did his ideas originate? How can one person be so brilliant? Imagine he has been reborn into the modern world after living the life of a spiritual leader in ancient Atlantis, where science and the divine made sense. Einstein’s Compass centers on Albert, his friend Johann, a classmate named Werner Von Weisel, and two villains named Raka and Countess Victoria von Baden. As a young boy, Albert’s father gave him a jeweled compass. We later learn the compass originally belonged to Countess von Baden’s family. It has magical qualities which only Albert and Johann are aware of. Raka, Albert’s twin brother thousands of years ago, has always been jealous of Albert and wishes him harm. Raka learns the compass contains a powerful stone called the Shamir stone, and he uses Werner and the Countess to exact revenge and take the compass for himself. The book includes “Mystical Travelers” famous biblical and scientific persons like Moses, Jesus, and Newton, who guide Albert along the path to rediscovering his forgotten knowledge destined to affect the word. Einstein’s Compass is a fascinating blend of the factual and the fantastical with enough of the metaphysical to leave readers wondering what is possible and what is reality. Imagine that a Wrinkle in Time meets The Chronicles of Narnia with a little Harry Potter thrown into the mix. “The more I learn of physics, the more I am drawn to metaphysics.” – Albert Einstein It is part science, part science fiction, part fantasy, part thriller, and all fun for young adults on up.

Elizabeth A. Carter, PhD speaking about “Gaining A.C.C.E.S.S. to Lead Others: 14 Activities critical to continuous evolution & success for self”

Being a leader is a scary thought. You are responsible for individuals who are not related to you and whom you cannot control 100%. This group of people does not look like you, think like you, talk like you, or have the same interests as you. These people may not even like you. Yet, somehow, you have to get them to follow you. Most of these same statements hold true for your role when you are being led. There is someone responsible for leading you. You cannot control, speak, or even think like that person. How can we effectively survive to do and be our best every day?

In this second book of the LEAP Series, Dr. Elizabeth A. Carter once again provides you access to information based on situations that have impacted her life. Gaining A.C.C.E.S.S. to Lead Others: 14 Activities Critical to Continuous Evolution & Success for Self shines a spotlight on the three elements that have helped, hindered, and heightened her journey in leadership: chemistry, confidence, and communication. Including motivational quotes from pioneers such as John Quincy Adams, Oscar Wilde, Plato, and Helen Keller, Dr. Carter expands her use of alliterations and acronyms to entertain and educate her readers with topics and phrases such as•First impressions: “First Flush Final”—Don’t expect the hand you were dealt to change.•Overcoming obstacles: “No Not Never”—Response is temporary, not permanent.•Working with others: “Sometimes, you must DUMB it down” (Decode for Understanding and Maximizing Buy-in).•Leading volunteers: Accountability measures needed if “there is not a process of a review, raise, or reprimand.”

At the end of each section, there are reflection questions, and the last chapter helps you decide what actions you will take next. Get “access-smart” and let chemistry, confidence, and communication increase your effectiveness when leading others and being led.

Barbara R. Walker, Ph.D. speaking about “Choosing Ourselves: Love and Advocacy in Overcoming a Birth Defect and the American Medical System”

In June 1970, my life was working as I’d hoped. At twenty-six, when my son Jim was born with a severe cleft lip and palate, my world turned upside down. Doctors took charge of my son’s medical needs. I felt side-lined, pressured to cope silently and without support. I recoiled when I saw my ten-day-old infant’s battered face after the first surgery. Feedings were traumatic, and I feared Jim would fail to thrive. Emotions I’d never felt before – disappointment, guilt, helplessness, self-loathing, resentment -- overwhelmed me. I shrank from the inevitable stares and insensitive comments. I worried that I had caused Jim’s cleft. My husband was consumed by medical training, so I was on my own for Jim’s medical appointments and hospitalizations. A surgeon dismissed my concerns and efforts. I yearned to be the mother my son needed but could not imagine ever being a positive force in his life. My husband and an insightful pediatrician helped pull me out of this downward emotional spiral and I was able to see the ways I was becoming a competent caregiver. I lost ground when a pediatrician, upset at Jim’s noncompliance, told me I was failing to discipline Jim adequately. Then, I was sure I’d lost Jim’s trust forever when he was four. Without pre-surgical counsel, I had not known to prepare him for how bruised and swollen his face would be immediately after surgery to revise a distorted lip scar. Gradually, I began to advocate for more support to help us weather stressful and often painful experiences. It was a momentous day when I insisted, despite a doctor’s resistance, on a referral for counseling to help Jim deal with depression...
