Charred Snake for Two

 Unable to get her head and heart back on track after her marriage crumbled, Alexandra Henry signed up to take part in an expensive, radical self-help, self-esteem program that would put her on a secluded island for seven days with someone just as broken. Together they would team-up to survive, renew trust in the opposite sex, and grow mentally stronger through candid conversation, while taking on nature at the same time.

Expecting someone tired and downtrodden, Alexandra was shocked when they delivered energetic, dark-haired, cocky, Adonis - Carson Jack.

How could someone like him know about heartache? Hope fizzled on the spot. She wouldn't come out of the experience any better than when she went in. Or would she?

 Cami Richardson is good at chasing away the men in her life: first Gavin Kinkaid, a former classmate she’d helped to bully, and later, her husband who left her widowed and a single mom. Now all she wants is to bring a smile back to her eight-year-old son. What she doesn’t expect is for Gavin to become her new neighbor.

Gavin wants to settle down after serving in the Air Force and mend the separation between him and his dad. What he never counts on is his changing feelings when he sees Cami as a kind woman instead of his former adversary.

When Cami’s son blindsides them both during the Christmas season, is their reunion at risk or will it grow stronger?

This Present Darkness

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

After the film in her camera is mysteriously destroyed at a small-town festival, reporter Bernice Kreuger knows she’s found something worth covering up. She brings the investigation to her boss, Marshall Hogan. Along with the local pastor of a struggling church, Hank Busch, they find something much bigger than they expected—a demonic plot to enslave their town and, eventually, the world.

The tiny college town of Ashton becomes the unlikely battleground in a cosmic clash between good and evil. Unseen by the human protagonists, armies of angels and demons wage war against one another in the spiritual realm for the souls of the people of Ashton. Up against supernatural forces, the future of the town seems bleak – but the power of prayer might be able to influence the outcome of the fight.

This fast-paced thriller birthed an entirely new genre, setting the standard for spiritual suspense. It has since sold over 2 million copies worldwide, sparking a renewed interest in the concept of spiritual warfare.

Kelly Chan
I was born May 2, 1968, in Battambang, Cambodia. As a child, I spent many happy hours helping my mom and dad prepare dinner for our family. So by the ages of six and eight years old, I was able to prepare many different types of Cambodian meals. Yes, I was able to learn how to prepare meals at this very young age, mostly by helping and observing my parents. As a farmer daughter, back then, it wasn’t very important for me to attend school, so I spend many hours with my parent learning how to cook. Culturally, it is important for Cambodian women to be able to prepare meals for their family. As the result of cultural influences, this is how the recipes passed on from generations to generations to young children.
By 1975 the communist regime had taken control over Cambodia, and not long after I was removed from my home to live in group housing, where all the children my own age resided. Between 1975 and 1979, I had lived as slaves, unable to have the freedom to be with my family. Instead was forced to perform hard labor at least twelve hours a day, nonstop, seven day a week performing agriculture duties.
By 1979, the Vietnamese liberation had begun, and it was the start of many years of civil war. As the result, our country had many years of famine, and we lived in dangerous conditions. Through the grape-vine, my parents heard that Thailand had been taking in Cambodian refugees. So my parents made the decision to leave Cambodia in a hopes of finding a better life for us.
Therefore, the journey started, and after several days of walking, we arrived at the Thai border. We stayed there a month or so, then we crossed the Cambodian border into Thailand, and settled in a camp for Cambodian refugees.
After a few years in Thai camp, we were sponsored to go to the United State of America; we arrived in San Jose, California, in January 1982. Here in San Jose, where I have resided most of my life. I have a career working full time as a registered dental assistant, which I have had for at least twenty-three years. And for the last few years, I worked as a hair stylist as well.
In June, I attended my brother’s graduation from San Jose State University, and my brother and I had conversations regarding food, Cambodian cuisines, and aging parents general. And eventually when they passed, we won’t be able to make the food that we love to eat. A few seconds later, the light-bulb went off. I can write a recipe book, I thought to myself; this way it will always be remembered, and passed on; so that is how the idea came to me about writing down our recipes.
It is my pleasure to share with you my family’s special recipes that have been passed on from generation to generations. Some dishes have also become fusions, influenced by our neighboring countries, and many countries that brought spices to our people, such as India, China, etc.
