A
Beginner’s Guide to Green Living

by
Rebecca Henry

Genre:
Nonfiction, How-To, Green Living

Just
like the color, there can be multiple shades of green living. This
book provides you with simple, easy, and fun recipes for all aspects
of your home life. You will find plant-based recipes for basic
cleaning products, skincare, herbal crafts, and even learn how to
plant and maintain the herbs in your own garden. I designed this book
to help motivate and educate you in the ways of green living, and
also to share my sixteen years of experience in walking through this
forest of green living myself. I hope you’ll find inspiration
within these pages and create your own shade of green living!
 

I
have traveled the world collecting recipes and ways to incorporate
organic, plant-based, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly options into my
daily life. Being a mother, I understand the importance of wanting to
create a clean and green home environment. Most people are not aware
of the hidden toxins lurking in their skincare and cleaning products.
This book exposes those toxins and the health risks they pose.
Besides providing recipes, I also suggest eco-friendly, plant-based
commercial brand alternatives, making the switch to a green lifestyle
easier for people to adapt. More and more people are realizing the
need to go green, yet they are unsure how to begin. Some people are
afraid that they cannot break their habits to adopt a green way of
living. I want to reach those people and show them that green living
can start with a conscious mind and a simple change to what they add
to their grocery cart. It does not have to be an all-or-nothing
switch.
 

But
it is not just about the care of our health, this book also focuses
on social issues in third world countries, eliminating zero-waste
products in the home, the need for fair trade and organic clothing,
toxic chemicals accumulating in the environment affecting aquatic
life, animals, and waterways. I explain how to change your daily
lives effortlessly and slowly, providing inspiring recipes and
crafts, to help make a difference with these cultural and
environmental issues. I encourage people with black thumbs to get
into the garden by providing easy projects like re-growing spring
onions from kitchen cuttings. It is my passion to show people that
they can have two green thumbs!

A plane crash! Lost in the Mexican jungle! Will Adam, Justin, and Kim survive long enough to find the Third Stone of Power?

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019
I am a children’s author, but up until a few years ago, I was a journalist and editor. Something rather unexpected sparked my new career as an author—a family trip to Egypt with my mother and two young nephews. We had a great time and I thought I’d write them a short story as a different kind of souvenir…. Well, one book and a planned book series later, I had changed careers. I have now published Book 3 (The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper) in my MG adventure series Chronicles of the Stone, with many awards for the first book, The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, and a few for Book 2, The Search for the Stone of Excalibur, and one already for Book 3! I also teach online novel writing for aspiring authors and I find that very satisfying. Relaxation time finds me enjoying something creative or artistic, music, books, theatre or ballet. I love doing research for my book series. I love animals and have written two animal rescue stories. I have two adorable (naughty) little dogs called Chloe and Pumpkin, and a beautiful black cat called Bertie.

 A
5000-year-old mystery comes to life when a scruffy peddler gives Adam and
Justin Sinclair an old Egyptian scarab on their very first day in Egypt. Only
when the evil Dr. Faisal Khalid shows a particular interest in the cousins and
their scarab, do the boys realise they are in terrible danger. 



Justin and Adam
embark upon the adventure of a lifetime, taking them down the Nile and across
the harsh desert in their search for the legendary tomb of the Scarab King, an
ancient Egyptian ruler. They are plunged into a whirlpool of hazardous and
mysterious events when Dr. Khalid kidnaps them.  With
just their wits, courage, and each other, the boys manage to survive … only to
find that the end of one journey is the beginning of another! 

 This is a must-read for Middle Graders keen on action, adventure, and
Arthurian stories! 
 
Cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair are
hot on the trail of the second Stone of Power, one of seven ancient stones lost
centuries ago. This stone might be embedded in the hilt of a newly discovered
sword that archeologists believe belonged to King Arthur: Excalibur. 
 
However,
their long-standing enemy, Dr. Khalid, is following them as they travel to
Scotland to investigate an old castle. Little do they know there is another
deadly force, the Eaters of Poison, who have their own mission to complete.
Time is running out as the confluence of the planets draws closer. Can Justin
and Adam find the second Stone of Power and survive? 

A plane
crash! Lost in the Mexican jungle! Will Adam, Justin, and Kim survive long
enough to find the Third Stone of Power?
With
only a young boy, Tukum, as their guide, the kids make their way through the
dense and dangerous jungle to find the lost city of stone gods, where the Stone
of Power might be located. River rafting on a crocodile-infested river and
evading predators are just part of this hazardous task.
 
Of
course, their old adversary Dr. Khalid is close behind as the kids press on.
But he is not the worst of their problems. This time Adam will clash with a terrible
enemy who adopts the persona of an evil Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca, and is keen to
revive the ancient tradition of human sacrifice.  Will they emerge
alive from the jungle? Will Dr. Khalid find the third Stone of Power before
they do?
   
 
 
Snippet From Book 1:
The snake jerked at the sound of his
voice. It glided closer to the stone sarcophagus. Adam lay back on the pile of
smelly bones and closed his eyes to half-slits. He looked up at the ceiling
where the painted cobra shimmered.
I can’t believe this is happening. I
know it’s after me.
The slithering, scraping sound grew
louder. Then directly in front of him, just at the edge of the stone
sarcophagus, the forked tongue whipping back and forth came into view followed
by the loathsome head, which reared up, its hood spread wide. Then the snake
opened its monstrous jaws, revealing wicked fangs. A clear drop of deadly
poison, glistening like a pearl, trembled on the end of each fang. The reptile
made a hideous hissing as it stared into the stone coffin, hunting for its
prey, waiting for the tiniest movement that would betray his presence. Adam
closed his eyes so he wouldn’t have to look into the snake’s gleaming black
orbs.
I’m finished, he thought, sliding his hand into his
pocket and feeling the scarab. Somehow, just holding it made him feel calmer.
Then Justin called softly, “I know
how I can distract it.

On Love and Animals by Maxwell MacPherson, Jr.

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

This is a refreshing book about nature and the beautiful lessons it teaches us. The author is very knowledgeable about fishing techniques, fly tying, and species procreation. I don’t think that many in our day have the depth of knowledge he has on this subject or about nature itself. He introduces the reader to a world full of olden day mannerisms and life. I enjoyed the book for all of the information passed on through real life stories (more…)
