Warrior’s aren't born, they are forged from the harsh experiences that shape them as they strive to defend what is sacred and true. And geniuses aren’t born either—or are they? Courtney Ramm would know, as she’s one of 229 offspring born from the controversial “Genius Sperm Bank”, a genetic experiment that existed in the 1980s and ‘90s. With a predisposition for “genius”, Courtney found herself driven toward success. Following her passion for dance, by the age of eight she was studying at the renowned School of American Ballet and soon thereafter, performing on New York’s greatest stages. At twenty-five years old, she acted upon a strong inner calling to start her own dance company—in Hawaii.

Moving across the globe from the concrete jungle of Manhattan to the tropical jungle in Hawaii, Courtney brought along her endless to-do lists and a strong determination to succeed. But one thing was missing from the picture-perfect life she had imagined: a perfect husband.

-

When she first locked eyes with Marcus at a spiritual gathering, she sensed something was off in the uncanny intensity of his stare. But she dove into a relationship anyway, not grasping the graveness and outright danger of the decision.

-

Eris Rising is a story of breaking deep karmic patterns, grappling with the calling of destiny, and changing long-held karma into mission. With the powerful feminine warrior spirit of Eris as inspiration, this memoir shows how it’s possible to move forward after life-altering “mistakes”, and recover the true “genius” within.



About the Author

Born and raised in the heart of New York City, Courtney Ramm has followed her passion for dance since childhood, which led to a career as a professional dancer, choreographer, and teacher. She’s directed dance schools, performed, and taught all over the world, from Singapore to Thailand to Manhattan.
With her Master’s degree in Dance Education, Courtney has led wellness retreats in Hawaii, focusing on empowerment and transformation. Courtney is the founder and artistic director of RammDance, a non-profit dedicated to keeping the legacy of modern dance pioneer Isadora Duncan alive. She blends her love of dance with holistic healing, and is a certified Pilates instructor, Yoga teacher, Ayurvedic consultant, Theta healer, Master Detox Chef, and Reiki practitioner.

Alongside her focused training and career in dance, writing has always been one of Courtney’s passions. She knew she would write a book—although she never imagined her memoir would take such a twisted turn.

Courtney is a full-time single mama to two toddlers. Eris Rising is her first book.

While working independently as a pre-med student at Cleary University, the soon-to-be physician, Mary Austin, discovers a remarkable, non-toxic drug that could offer tremendous hope to cancer patients. Her work is headed for publication in a top medical journal until a drug company begins negotiations with her bosses from which she is mysteriously excluded.

Amid egregious sexual harassment, Mary's materials are blatantly sabotaged. As death threats follow and her work becomes impossible, she is accepted at Whitehead College of Medicine despite evidence that her bosses tampered with her application process. After becoming a pediatrics resident, she shares her story with her beloved mentor, Dr. Daniel Taylor, who allows her to temporarily leave her residency training to reproduce the work. Her joy turns to sorrow and then determination when she learns that Dr. Taylor is battling terminal pancreatic cancer. Even as a chain of events prompts the sabotage of Mary's drug stock and leaves her seemingly without any choice but to permanently leave academic medicine, the story of her drug is not over yet.

In this novel inspired by a true story, after a young cancer researcher discovers a breakthrough drug that could change chemotherapy, the drug industry suppresses the breakthrough and transforms her life and career forever.

 

 



Review
This is not a quick read. It's a book that will keep you thinking all of the way through and have you marinating on what you are reading. It makes you think in the best way. 
Ultimately, to me it was a story about relationships and a deep look into that. 
The writing was well done and easy to follow. The pacing was a little slower than I like, but it kept up the entire way through. 
Characters were well rounded and unique. They were created in a way that makes us want to learn more about them as we went. 

About the Author

Mary Austin is the pseudonym for a physician who, in order to publicize a suppressed discovery in cancer research, had to sacrifice first her academic career, then a career as a board-certified pediatrician, and then her personal safety. She would do it again.

Review

Stephanie Miller has put together a book that highlights her knowledge and faith.

This isn't just a read, it's a guide with tips and exercises woven in. 

It's open and honest and really sheds light on Miller as a person along the way. 

The entire book may not have things that apply to you, but you will definitely find many helpful things over the course of reading. 

Very well put together and overall a great solid Non Fiction read.

Publisher: Bublish


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


The memoir of a magnificent woman who at the end of a life that has changed so many lives for the better, asks us all to see the beauty in one another. This memoir calls to a deeper belief in ourselves – that whatever disappointments, anguish and uncertainty life brings – we have the strength and ability to summon gratitude, compassion and acceptance to see our way through. An avid writer, her work has also been featured in SurvivorNet, Share Care Cancer Support and on her blog, A Crack in the Wall, which was selected as one of Healthline.com's 2020 Blog of the Year awards.


About the Author

Michele Wheeler was a caring mother with twin daughters she adored. She was an easy friend that loved to smile and laugh. She was a devoted wife. Michele was a universally respected co-worker that never shied away from hard work and knew how to have fun doing it. She was a scientist. She was also someone who found herself in the devastating position of being diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 37. After surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation she lived cancer-free for four years. Cancer resurfaced, and she battled it fiercely for nearly five more years, before dying peacefully at home on June 23, 2020. During her last years, Michele fought to find her way past debilitating fear and rage to stay present, and not let cancer be what defined her. Though difficult, she succeeded. She lived on her own terms and left us with a moving memoir full of stories and wisdom, laughs and tears, hope and love.

Women's Fiction / Mystery Feature: Marybeth, Hollister and Jane by Vera Jane Cook #blogtour #bookreview #giveaway #mystery #womensfiction @RABTBookTours @verajanecook

 


Woman’s Fiction, Cozy Mystery

Date Published: 9/28/20


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Some secrets draw people closer.........after they tear them apart.

Marybeth and Hollister moved to rural New York to escape—both the city life and a checkered past. Their lives were unassuming, until they bought a grandfather clock. They just wanted something to fill the space under their stairs, but they got much more than they bargained for. What secrets could the clock possibly hold?

Jane was sent to Callicoon to find the Eagle diamond, which was stolen from the Museum of Natural History in the ‘60s and never recovered. Convinced she won’t find what she’s looking for, she grudgingly takes the assignment. When she arrives, things aren’t what they seem and Jane finds more than she ever expected.

 

 



Review

I thoroughly enjoy the relatable characters, plot, action and settings in the book.

Vera Jane Cook managed to bring us developed characters and a solid plot line.

Overall this really had superb writing and a great attention to detail.

Nonfiction Feature: The Internal Threat #promo #nonfiction #aviation #giveaway #releaseday #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @StaceyTylerPhD

 


Aviation, Government, Academia, Education, and Leadership Development, Consulting and Training

Date Published: October 21, 2020


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png 

In this book, The Internal Threat: The Community Behind the Security Checkpoint, Dr. Stacey Tyler provides a qualitative study on the central research question that focuses on the degree to which miscommunication between TSA, airlines, and airport employees has an impact on the implementation of changes in airport security policies, particularly those regarding prohibited items that pass through security checkpoints. This behavior impacts the effective execution of airport security policies by federal law regarding carryon baggage on commercial aircraft that is specifically known as the Internal Threat.



About the Author

Dr. Stacey Tyler has dedicated 10 years to obtain her Ph.D. from Walden University in Public Policy and Administration specialized in Homeland Security Coordination and Policy.

During her pursuit of this degree she completed an investigation of the predicament to what extent miscommunication among TSA, airline, and airport employees has an impact on the implementation of changes in airport security policy, particularly those policies regarding prohibited items that pass through security checkpoints.

In conjunction with accomplishing this challenging degree, Dr. Tyler has accumulated 22 years of professional experience in the airline industry working in all facets of the operation throughout the country. She started as a part-time Customer Service Agent while climbing the corporate ladder to a General Manager including but not limited to initiating five station start-ups. Dr. Tyler worked at the Philadelphia International Airport intermittently since 2006 with US Airways (Hub Operations Manager) to managing two airlines as a General Manager with GAT Ground Support Services for JetBlue and Spirit Airlines. However it does not stop there.

Dr. Tyler is also an Adjunct Professor, at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University teaching courses in Counterterrorism in Aviation, Airline Management and Air Carrier, Passenger, and Cargo Management.

From getting her doctorate to becoming a professor, the lineage of Dr. Tyler achievements and ambitions continue to prosper and transform as she endeavors into her new opportunity: Business –Owner of Interactive Intelligence Corporation (IC).

As a New Jersey Women-Owned Minority Business supported by U.S. Senator Corey Booker, Interactive Intelligence Corporation is dedicated to assisting policy makers, administrations, and airport and airline management with executing the following: examining and preventing the exploitation of weaknesses in the current system, increasing the efficiency and effectiveness in identifying and responding to emerging threats, and producing greater public satisfaction.

After spending over 22 years, in the aviation industry, from Ticketing Agent to General Manager, Dr. Tyler developed the IIC Internal Threat Training Program. IIC Internal Threat Training Program is a multi-layered approach designed to improve facilities and incumbent airlines to mitigate the internal threat surrounding national security and airport infrastructure concerns.

Dr. Tyler is an author who wrote books in conjunction with her business curriculum as a required material for universities, institutions, local, state, and federal agencies:

  1. The Inside Man: Evaluating Security Communication Failures at a United States Airport-Rowman & Littlefield Publishing;
  2. Airport Security: Passenger Screening and Governance Post 9/11 Amazon-Kindle Fire-Rose Dog Publishing;
  3. Airport Security: Organizational Leadership Change Post 9/11 Amazon-Kindle Fire

In closing, Dr. Tyler has tapped into uncharted territory by suggesting the greatest threat to airport and aircraft safety is what occurs internally. Dr. Tyler brought attention to this concern in our national aviation system by appearing on the following media outlets:

  • Inside the Issues on SiriusXM
  • The Critical Hour on Russia Sputnik Radio
  • The Rock Newman Show on WHUT-TV for PBS
  • Off Script with Bruce Johnson on WUSA9
  • The Armstrong Williams Show WJLA-TV
  • The Anointed News Journal
  • The Voice of Reason Talk Show
  • Morning Coffee-RVNTV
