Deadly Thirst is the true story of four-year-old foster child Andy Setzer, who was murdered in Perris California August 2, 1999. Deadly Thirst follows Andy from conception to burial and reveals, in riveting investigative style, the series of deadly blunders that led Riverside County Child Protection officials to herd him into a one-way slaughter chute of foster care and straight into the hands of death. Andy's story is a frightening journey into the grim, dark side of foster care. The author paints a gripping psychological portrait of Andy's killer, Theresa Barroso and her morass of lies as she strives to place the blame solely upon her withdrawn and mentally challenged husband. Equally compelling is a behind-the-scenes look into the investigation that revealed Barroso's habitual need to vent her anger on a defenseless child. The sensational courtroom drama is undeniably graphic, an absolute page-turner, resulting in a verdict that will shock even the most ardent readers of chilling true-crime. Includes thirteen pages of evidentiary documents and crime scene photos.

When German journalist Jens Mühling met Juri, a Russian television producer selling stories about his homeland, he was mesmerized by what he heard: the real Russia and Ukraine were more unbelievable than anything he could have invented. The encounter changed Mühling’s life, triggering a number of journeys to Ukraine and deep into the Russian heartland on a quest for stories of ordinary and extraordinary people. Away from the bright lights of Moscow, Mühling met and befriended a Dostoevskian cast of characters, including a hermit from Tayga who had only recently discovered the existence of a world beyond the woods, a Ukrainian Cossack who defaced the statue of Lenin in central Kiev, and a priest who insisted on returning to Chernobyl to preach to the stubborn few determined to remain in the exclusion zone. Unveiling a portion of the world whose contradictions, attractions, and absurdities are still largely unknown to people outside its borders, A Journey into Russia is a much-needed glimpse into one of today’s most significant regions.

"The Journey will challenge you to ... find the kind of life you have always wanted to discover." —Tom Davis, President of Children's Hope Chest and author of Fields of the Fatherless, Scared and Priceless "The global orphan crisis is too serious to ignore, the biblical call is to plain to miss. I'm thrilled to see Journey to the Fatherless!" —Tony Merida, author of Orphanology, and Lead Pastor, Imago Dei Church and Associate Professor of Preaching, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary "The Journey will move a church from thinking to action in responding to the needs of fatherless children." —Jayne Schooler, author of Wounded Hearts, Healing Homes and The Whole Life Adoption Book "The Journey to the Fatherless is life-changing ..." —Paparao Yeluchuri, President, Missions to the Nations, India DOES THE CHURCH CARE FOR THE WORLD'S CHILDREN? The evidence on display tells a troubling story with an ever-increasing number of orphans in the world, kids aging out of foster care, AIDS babies in Africa, and toddlers in Haiti whose hair has turned orange from severe protein deficiencies. What makes this situation especially tragic is that given our wealth, talent, and resources, the Church can be a powerful agent of change—and we have the biblical mandate to do so. Do Christians have a responsibility to intercede for and sacrifice their resources for vulnerable children? What happens to the Church when we do? And when we don't? How do we begin? The Journey to the Fatherless is written by a former agnostic, corporate executive and inventor who was chased down by the Hound of Heaven. God then took him to the "fields of the fatherless" so he could experience what breaks the heart of God. What he discovered in serving the least of these has been captured for the Church to use to prepare others for their journey. The Journey takes the reader beyond Fields of the Fatherless and The Hole in Our Gospel into a deeper understanding of the problem and the biblical call to action.

People say I inspire them, but Im not sure why; I am a young girl from the hood who made it out. I dont consider myself to have all the answers. My childhood life was hell from as far back as I can remember. I had been exposed to homelessness, child abuse and neglect, exposed to child protection agencies, missing my father who was in prison, and dealing with my mother who was in and out of jail as well as addicted to crack cocaine and men who were no good for her. As far as I can remember, this was my life before kindergarten. Life is not an even playing field; the cards youre dealt may not be the ones you desire, but if you keep playing your hand you could still win the game. It is what you do with your situation that counts. Dont throw in your hand and quit the game. Play it to the best of your ability. I have witnessed what inspiration and motivation can do for children who have lost all hope or never once believed. This is my story: The Cards of Life. When all hope is gone, trust then believe.

Sqi Taylor (pronounced SKY) has lived an amazing life, including over ten years of work in law-enforcement, 20 years working with both juvenile and adult offenders and being a foster parent to over 60 youth. She has worked with prisons, directed two non-profit agencies, owned her own business and was once nominated as a "Woman of Distinction" in her community. In Casper, Wyoming she and a handful of believers founded a Therapeutic Riding Academy for people with physical, mental, emotional, financial or spiritual disabilities. Her pen name is an "on-air name" her daughter Lacy gave her, while working as a radio personality as a second job to make ends meet. Interestingly enough, "Sqi" was a female action hero in a card collection of crime fighting characters. Writing mostly as a passionate hobby for over 30 years, this was the "ONE" story she was absolutely compelled to share with the world. A tantalizing, 23 year-old unsolved homicide case, turned into over six years of research, ultimately leading back to a much older unsolved murder in Wyoming in 1949 and a mysterious death in Oklahoma in the 1970's. Eventually, all roads led back to, or were connected with the person who was finally arrested, tried and convicted of Jack Humphrey's murder, nearly twenty-nine years after his death. Whenever innocent blood is spilled in a cold, bizarre manner the emotional, mental and physical devastation is made even greater by either intentional or unintentional actions we naturally blame on "the system." Sad to say, it's not the system, just some people in it, the choices and decisions they make. Mishaps, mistakes, legal or local bias, laziness, political or personal agenda's more often than we realize, only repeatedly, re-victimize families or people we love or that love us. What followed the gruesome, senseless, slaying of Jack Humphrey was one of the most shocking, cruel and riveting persecutions of a victim's family anyone could imagine. How did the murder of an honest, hard-working family man of average means, become such a politically sensitive, unsolved murder case and remain so, for over a quarter of a century? That's the billion dollar question you ultimately must answer for yourself Throughout this tumultuous journey it's clear that good men and women then and now, risk careers, their families, lives and reputations every day, either fighting for truth and justice or falling to the temptation of the oldest and still deadliest of sins: Lust, Lies, Sloth, Greed and Murder! For any one left to navigate through a very tricky, risky, tedious and complex maze, filled with paper and people, Justice for Jack is a must read!
