The Bookie's Runner Biography
View Brendan Gisby's bio page

Bob Dylan wrote the classic song 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door' and thereby unforgettably marked the passing of an otherwise insignificant character in the movie 'Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid'.

Brendan Gisby has written this utterly beautiful novella to honour the short life of his father, a man of seemingly as little significance.

The story is narrated with haunting subtlety, rhythm and depth of feeling by his teenage son as he takes a bus ride back to school for the first day of a new term where he will have to announce his father's sudden death and deal with the resultant reactions without bursting into tears.

He also has to come to terms with the fact that, on reflection, there is a huge amount he doesn't know about his father and that all he is really left with are snippets of personal memories.

Make no mistake, 'The Bookie's Runner' is a modern masterpiece and, in writing it, Brendan Gisby has not only honoured his father, he has ennobled him.

Ferry Tales Biography
View Brendan Gisby's bio page

A collection of short stories set in the late l950's and early 1960's and based upon the author's own family whilst living in South Queensferry on the Southern shore of the River Forth in Scotland.

The stories are all beautifully written with the characters brought alive in a colourful and authentic manner. With his usual flair, Mr Gisby has managed to create a compilation of tales to warm and touch the heart of the reader. The tales contain depth, humour and pathos, and as always his characters generate compassion in the reader whilst they hold the interest from page to page.

A nice added touch is the fact that most of them re-appear in the different stories, and it's not until one has almost finished reading that one realises there is a continuing story-thread running throughout.

Equally entertaining as a whole read or as individual reads, this is a most delightful book to add to anyone's bookshelf, and is to be especially enjoyed when curled up in the warm on a Winter's evening.

Invisible Tears Biography
View Abigail Lawrence's bio page

At a time when six-year-old Abbie needs love and security, her mother goes to the hospital and never returns. Still distraught, Abbie is passed to whoever will have her. Her new step mother subjects her to unimaginable physical, sexual and psychological torture and delivers her to local paedophiles in the entertainment business. During her single minded pursuit of fame Abbie’s step mother stops at nothing, beating and prostituting her own children.

This is the story of Abbie's struggle to survive, the grim details of child abuse of the worst kind all told from the perspective of a little girl.

As a teenager Abbie is uncontrollable. A Modette during the 80's revival, she finds a love of scooters, rebellion and gang life on the wild side. Dulling her pain with alcohol, drugs and promiscuity at a very young age, Abbie loses control and becomes well known to the local police. Not one person can get through to her because she has no fear, no self respect, no morals or self worth. With nothing to lose, she throws herself into one battle after another, blood and guts brawling between the skin heads and the mods on the streets of London.

Her family eventually disowns her realizing they are unable to help. Abbie finds herself in the care of the Court until she is abandoned by children's homes and Social Services too. Alone, penniless and pregnant at the age of 16. Haunted by the secrets of her unspeakable past. Will anyone ever see her invisible tears?

A Fortune Teller's Blessing: The Story of John Allen Adams Biography
View Doc Hughes's bio page


In 1936 during the depths of the Great Depression a handsome and gifted seventeen-year-old high school athlete saw his promising future shattered when his neck was broken in a football game. His injury was so severe few at the time thought the honor student, Eagle Scout, editor of his school paper, and president of his class every year since the seventh grade would survive. But with the dedicated care of his iron-willed Aunt Bessie, the outpouring of support from his home town and his own determination John Allen Adams did survive and was able over time to adapt to his severe handicap and go on to lead a remarkably successful life. Though left a quadriplegic, he proved to be a man of extraordinary inner resources, one who found freedom while bound to a wheelchair and independence while almost totally dependent on those around him. He made his way in the world as a businessman dealing in the products he loved most—books; and, while confined for forty-six years to two houses two blocks apart, he found success as a poet and purpose as a defender of the environment and an anti-war activist whose influence reached across the country and beyond.


John Allen’s story, woven from important strands of Arkansas and American history, reaches far beyond the community of Arkadelphia in which he lived. It is a dramatic story replete with accomplished citizens and colorful characters. His mother, a carnival fortune teller, was the misfit daughter of the Horton family whose history can be traced back to the Revolutionary War. Her grandfather, W.S. Horton, the patriarch, was a Forty-Niner who returned from the gold fields of California to Dallas County Arkansas where he married Elizabeth Scott, daughter of Major J.D. Scott and niece of General Winfield Scott of Mexican War fame. There they began their family on the cotton plantation they named Fairview and prospered until Horton rode away with the Arkansas Volunteers during the Civil War where, according to family memories, he took part in the nearby battles of Poison Spring, Marks’ Mills and Jenkins Ferry. John Allen could count among his relatives and forebears soldiers, teachers, professors, physicians, and college presidents, although there are dark shadows and mysteries in the family as well.

But while family history provides a fascinating backdrop for his story it cannot account for the remarkable character of John Allen Adams. All who knew him recognized his singular nature—his compassion, his courage, his wisdom and wit. The newspaper where his Aunt Bessie worked boasted on its masthead that Arkadelphia was “The Athens of Arkansas,” and considering the constellation of friends who surrounded him throughout his life, that boast seems not without merit. He earned his place in the Greatest Generation even though he lay paralyzed while his classmates went off to fight in World War II. After that conflict, in addition to establishing Adams Book Store which became a cultural oasis for his home town, he enjoyed life-long discourses with accomplished friends who provided him windows to exciting worlds, to Ivy League universities, the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs, performances at the Metropolitan Opera, and to incisive Socratic dialogs with a philosopher friend who lived near Walden Pond.

John Allen Adams, a skilled poet and a tireless worker for world peace, was a man who found within himself the resources to build a life that made a difference, a difference reflected in the testimonies and memories of those whose lives he touched.
