In April of 1939, as 20-year-old Gary Gatlin travels from Los Angeles abroad, he cannot know that he will singularly influence the outcome of WWII. Gatlin, a friend of Japanese-immigrant farmers in California, finds himself in Formosa to learn about Japanese fruit cultivation. When he arrives on the lush island, war is in the air, and his presence begins to raise suspicion.

Author Biography

TUCSON, Arizona – Carl F. Haupt, a 93-year old retired military veteran on a government pension, has become a philanthropist who feeds the starving refugees at the U.S. border in Arizona. From a wheelchair, he works to make life tolerable for those in limbo. Just as he helped to liberate Europe during WWII and fought in the Asian Theater on the other side of the world, today, he and his wife continue, after more than 17 years, to personally help those fleeing poverty and internal strife within their home countries.

At age 15, along with a reported 1 million other boys across the country, Haupt left home during The Great Depression. He was homeless, hitching rides on freight trains, sleeping on the ground and going hungry for days at a time. Eventually, he landed in Los Angeles. In 1944, he joined the United States Navy and served his country for 22 years, including more than a decade in the United States Air Force. He retired in 1966 as a Master Sergeant.

In 1992, with his military life behind him, Carl began helping locals in Mexico with his wife, Sarah. They worked in Agua Prieta, a city across from Douglas, Arizona. Remembering his time as a homeless teen, Carl helped build over 100 homes and moved 25 donated mobile homes to families in Agua Prieta, delivering food and other necessities to struggling families.

Haupt is a first time author at 93 years old. His novel, “Gary Gatlin: Reluctant Hero” (Dudley Court Press, November 5, 2019), was inspired by a strange situation in 1987 when he woke up one morning compelled to write for 13 straight hours the story that had come to him through a dream. Now, decades later, Dudley Court Press has acquired his story for release in 2019. All author royalties from “Gary Gatlin” will be consigned to the non-profit organization Angels on the Border.

 

 

4 women meet Pirates who may or may not stand in their way of destiny. 6 Books on Sale for $6.

Ivory Shepard and her cousins enter a life of challenges as they begin a journey that leads to piracy, danger, revenge, death, and romance.

As Ivory becomes the Pirate Queen The Razor, the cousins meet men who bring romance to their lives for the first time. There is a man of noble birth who defies the meaning of the word pirate. A man who is betrayed and exiled. A man who is as mysterious as the night. And a man who brings a gentle romance not thought to exist among pirates.

Ivory, Miranda, Cassandra, and Keara are more than a match for the men that enter their lives, both good and evil. Through all of their adventures Ivory’s cousins know one thing, that as long as Ivory breathes, she will make certain they are all safe, and any cost. Even if it costs her heart or her soul.

I guarantee you will enjoy these books. Amber Wake has a slightly different tone than the others as it is about Gabriel Wallace and his journey to becoming the pirate captain Rasmus Bergman.

.99 per book at Amazon for your Kindle, with over 2000 pages combined.

My personal favorites are of course Amber Wake, since I did co-author it with PS Bartlett, and The Blue Diamond. Diamond was the first of the series written and just begged for a series of back stories because there was so much in the developed world Bartlett had created. The other 5 books successfully explain all you need to know.

Reviews for Amber Wake

“Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling is a ‘not-your-typical’ pirate story. And that’s a good thing for this reader who normally reads science fiction and thrillers. The authors did an excellent job maintaining the appropriate language for the early 18th Century. Historical events are well-researched. And the cast of characters are believable and well-rounded. This novel has some of the best action scenes I have read in a long time (yes, even better than some thrillers I’ve recently read). They left me breathless and in anticipation. There are some endearing moments throughout the novel involving Wallace, Miles Jacob and a young boy named Adam. Through those scenes, you learn about the character of Gabriel Wallace, what makes him the man he is and how loyal his friends really are. The story is authentic, engaging and suspenseful. Highly recommended.” Ravyne 5 Stars

The story itself could easily be turned into a movie. The authors give you an action packed scene after the next. You can hardly wait to turn the page. This story tied in well with the other books in this series, all, which I’ve also read – and think, are highly recommendable. The difference between this book and the other’s being that this one is set in a man’s world, told by a man. Women do not play much of a vital role in this story except for making the life of our hero difficult.Sarina 5 stars

I always love a good back story, especially when it comes to pirates. There are so many different and fascinating reasons that these people, historic and fictional, choose to turn their backs on their homelands and raise the black flag. I learned about the reason Gabriel Wallace went rogue in P.S. Bartlett’s other book, Jaded Tides, and knowing what a levelheaded and goodhearted, man that cutthroat pirate was at his core, I just knew that Gabriel Falling was going to be an epic tale. It was. Amber Wake is a non stop adventure tale, full of colorful characters, and gripping action. Gabriel (aka, Rasmus Bergman) keeps us on our toes with the seemingly uncertain plans that he is obsessively dedicated to. Miles Jacobs brings loyalty you can count on, but not without a pain in the arse, and Maddox Carbonale lightens the mood with his nonchalant attitude, and unpredictable actions.” Author/Artist Cristi Taijeron 5 Stars

This novel is very slow through the first few chapters, the dialogue is a little long and drawn out at first but as the authors settle in the writing becomes a lot smoother, making the story a lot more interesting and the flow a lot smoother. The story is written in the POV of a pirate named Rasmus Bergman and I found his characterization to be right on spot. The world building was magnificent, it was as if you were sitting next to the characters in each scene. I need this when reading anything fiction to make the story believable.
The well-written lines and plot really grab you and tug you in and you are constantly flipping the pages to see what happens next. If you are looking for an intriguing fast-paced read this is definitely for you.

I love these covers, and am particularly fond of the Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling cover. Not a bias or anything, just a simple observational opinion. If you click on each image you get to see them on a page alone and they look so amazing.

Here they are in order of reading, so far. (Click HERE to visit PS Bartlett’s Amazon Author Page to find all of the titles. My page has books that I am included as an author such as Amber Wake.)

Ivory Dawn is a novella introducing the main heroine, and titular character of Ivory Shepard, her cousins, the life they came from, and the life they throw themselves headfirst into.

Ivory Dawn Cover 2019

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling introduces Gabriel Wallace as he transforms from life as a vaunted Captain in Her Majesty’s Royal Navy to becoming the man who will be known as Big Red Rasmus Bergman, a man that plays a pivotal part in the Razor fulfilling her dreams.

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling Cover 2019Demons & Pearls continues with Ivory and her cousins finding themselves in the middle of the pirate world and doing whatever it takes to prove they are not the property of any man.

Demons & Pearls Cover 2019Jaded Tides is an exciting story of Ivory and her cousins growing ever closer to their dreams becoming reality, but at what cost.

Jaded Tides Cover 2019Beyond The Ruby Moon is the NEW book to be released soon. I’m reading it now and am so happy to finally get to see what happens between Ivory and Razz, and what’s going on with her cousins, three beautiful and intelligent women proving they are just as wily in the ways of the Caribbean as their protective cousin.

Beyond The Ruby Moon Cover 2019The Blue Diamond The Razor’s Edge was the first book about Ivory that PS Bartlett wrote. I read it and was immediately hooked, so much so that I jumped on her bandwagon and coattails and signed on to co-write Amber Wake, and an as yet to be completed or named possible sequel. It seems the blonde haired author lady and I both got it in our blood to start writing the pirate life again at the same time. It had to be a sign,and we know any successful pirate knows how to read the signs.
