Maid Marian And The Lawman
by Deb Stover

Read first chapter here:

"Robin Hoodwinked! A family in America's Old West struggles to survive in Deb Stover's jaunty homage to the denizens of Sherwood Forest." ~BookPage

"Deb Stover's ingenuity and cleverness soar in this heartwarming 'Robin Hood with a twist' story where family loyalty takes center stage. Ms Stover has proven her ability as a storyteller in paranormal venues and moves into historical romance with the same remarkable talents. Here is a story that makes readers believe in the power of family and love. Stolen Wishes proves that 'family' is not just blood ties, but also the love that binds people. Let yourself be held in the comfort of Deb Stover's 'feel-good' gem of a romance."  
~Kathe Robin, RT Book Reviews, 
Top Pick & Reviewers' Choice Award Winner  

At thirteen, Mary Goode rescued her brother, Robin, and two of his friends from an asylum and escaped with them to Indian Territory. They make a simple home, and Robin creates his make-believe Sherwood Forest. To the delicate young woman dubbed Maid Marian, Robin's storybook fantasies seem a harmless game. But as eight years pass, Mary longs for more. And now, a stranger enters their secluded haven--a man with the power to shatter their safety or answer Mary's most passionate prayers. U.S. Marshal Shane Latimer is hard on the heels of robbers when a spooked horse and a snake bite lands him on his back, and in the middle of an eccentric band of forest dwellers. Though these gentle folk save his life and nurse him back to health, Shane has orders to bring the thieves to justice. But will knowing the truth mean choosing between duty and love?

I lost my husband, my soulmate, my best friend, the father of my children 14 years ago to cancer. Even after losing twin daughters, my mother, my brother, all my grandparents I was ill-prepared for this crippling experience. Well-meaning friends and family say many things to widows and widowers in an attempt to offer comfort. I often tell new widows that if they survive the first year without strangling one of their well-meaning friends or relatives who claims to “know exactly” how they feel, says it was “God’s will”, or that our loved one is “in a better place”, etc., they will definitely survive this new life fate has thrust upon them. 

Then, of course, there are those who expect us to “get over it.” This type of loss isn’t something we “get over.” We evolve and grow stronger to survive grief so powerful it feels like a beast ripping our hearts from our breast. But we are forever changed.... Some will remarry, but even they remember their pain and grief on birthdays and anniversaries. This pain does not vanish. Time smooths the jagged edges, but nothing eliminates it.

Our new life is to learn how to cope with the pain of our loss, how to move forward without our partner we were supposed to share the rest of our lives beside, and to rediscover ourselves in the midst of all that.

We are forever changed, but we survive despite well-meaning friends and relatives whose words hurt rather than help. Please stop and think before you speak. A simple "I'm sorry for your loss" is fine and appreciated.

Isn't it telling that the Democratic Party is honoring Senator McCain instead of his own? He may have crossed the aisle a few times--McCain/Feingold most famously--but he has always been a hardcore Republican and conservative. He's also been what I consider a hawk and a war monger. Let us not forget the "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb bomb Iran" ditty he sang at one of his campaign rallies during the 2008 election to the tune of a Beach Boys' song. And he brought Sarah Palin into the National spotlight, which was downright criminal, IMHO.

But he was also a Vietnam veteran, a former POW--vilified by our current POTUS, Cadet Bonespurs. He has served his country honorably in the US Senate for DECADES, and did so with honor and selflessness. I don't recall any big scandals from his office--only dedication and hard work. 

His own party has turned on him, because he remained loyal to his country and the Constitution. As a tortured POW in Vietnam, he rightfully and vigorously opposed GW and Cheney regarding the use of torture at Guantanamo after 9/11. He stood up against #45 when he attempted to take medical care away from millions of Americans by dismantling the Affordable Care Act without a viable replacement.

You may recall that Senator Robert Dole behaved in a similar manner toward the end of his career, and went to the Senate floor in a wheelchair to plead cooperation between parties. He was ignored by his own. 

The far right leaning of the inhumane Christian Taliban, Russian backed GOP has become the American Fascist Party. I don't know what else to think of it. They don't even respect their own elder statesmen. 

That disgusts me.

So the Democratic Party steps forward, crosses the aisle, and honors the elder GOP statesmen the reThuglicans have turned their backs on. It isn't because those elder statesmen became Democrats or worked with our party. It's because they served their nation honorably and deserve our respect.

This is one of the major--MAJOR--differences between our parties. Michelle Obama put it best. She said, "When they go low, we go high." 

Here we go again. We snowflakes, liberals, progressives and Democrats will honor even the Republicans who served our country. 

We have hearts, thinking minds, class, a good sense of right and wrong--sigh--and believe in the principles our Forefathers established for our nation. Let us honor those for Senator John McCain and all those who serve our country well, regardless of their party affiliation. 

PS: Feel free to share.

Cole Morrison is a single father and reluctant gold-miner-turned-kidnapper. Desperation forces him into the battle between warring mining town saloons over Lolita Belle. Why does anyone want that sassy redhead anyway? She can't carry a tune, but Lolita-who-calls-herself-Jackie may be the answer to all his dreams…. Is Jackie still having a bad hair day…? Or is this miner with a heart of gold the spa treatment of a lifetime…?    for all the digital links.

Mike strikes the deal and wakes up on June 19th gazing down the barrel of an antique gun held by Abigail Kingsley, who confirms it is June 19th, but the year is 1865. Now Mike must prevent the murder from over a century in the past, while being taunted by a shape-shifting Slick. The devil may own his soul, but Abigail stakes a powerful claim on his aching heart.

Be Nice

I grow weary of seeing the term "Islamist" placed as a modifier before the noun "terrorist," while white supremacists in our country commit more terrorist acts against Americans in the name of whatever faith they claim at the time. And the same so-called Christian blogger who wrote the article that ticked me off today also lumped "homosexuals" and "pornographers" together in the same sentence. Ignorance abounds. 
We're better than this. It's the 21st Century, people. Open your hearts, your minds and allow knowledge, science, real news and information to enlighten you to REALITY. 
Bad people do bad things. They are not all of the same faith. They are not all the same color, gender, or sexual persuasion. They are not all from the same part of the world. Terrorists share one common deneominator: Hate.
White supremacists and right wing extremists in the United States of America are gifted and talented in the Hate department. 
Be nice.

Love, Deb

What Would Jesus Do?

I find it deeply disturbing that so many devout "Christians" have expressed support for Donald Trump. I actually saw someone quote an article that referred to Trump as "Chosen by God." 
Seriously? A man who has expressed racism, extreme disrespect for women, literally stolen money from working people by refusing to pay them for honest work, told lie after lie after lie (proven!!!!), loves himself more than his neighbor his family or anyone else, created Trump University for the purpose of stealing from students--the list is endless. 
Furthermore, if elected, he will give to the rich and steal from the poor by furthering the GOP platform, which one of these "Christians" referred to as "Biblical." Honestly... 
Let's examine that with this quote from Marilyn Chandler McEntyre, Professor of English at Westmont College, Santa Barbara, California, put it this way in her article “A Voice from the Christian Left.” 
“Many on the Christian Right are fond of posing the question WWJD?-- What would Jesus do? I’d like to remind them what Jesus DID do: He cared for the poor. He did not condemn the woman caught in adultery. He prayed alone. He commanded us to love our enemies. He preached peace. He ate, drank, and lived with ‘tax collectors and sinners’ -- the lowlifes and outcasts of his day, while reserving his condemnation for the religious leaders who, from a place of privilege, imposed their legalism and literalism on the people they were responsible for leading. He told his disciples not to oppose the healing work of those outside the ranks of his followers. And again and again he reminded us to care for the poor. (That moral issue gets more air time than any other in the gospels: 1 verse in 9.) If Christians concerned about how to respond to the grave global issues facing us all were to reread the Gospels for guidance, I think we’d find some pretty clear indications there about what Jesus would do ... and what he wouldn’t. (One of the few bumper stickers I’ve been tempted to affix to my still undecorated car in recent months reads ‘Who would Jesus bomb?’) 
Whatever Jesus would do, given what he did do, and has promised he will do, I don’t think it looks much like what the insulated, self-congratulatory Fox News fans on the ‘Christian Right’ are doing.” 
End of quote. 
In a nutshell, the Jesus I learned about in Sunday School taught us to heal the sick, feed the poor, house the homeless, and that the meek shall inherit the Earth, etc. He taught social justice and inclusiveness--not divisiveness. He was a teacher, so he obviously believed in education. Oh, and he was a tradesman, too--a carpenter--so he supported labor.
The Republican Party wants to privatize Social Security, which means taking this EARNED BENEFIT--it is not an entitlement--and put it into the hands of greedy Wall Street gamblers. Anything for a profit. Just look what privatization of prisons did for that system!
Some things should not be privatized!!!! Our medical care is inefficient and overpriced BECAUSE it is privatized. We need universal public healthcare for all. Remove greed and profit.
Police, military, education, fire protection, etc., should never be privatized, nor should Social Security, VA or Medicare.
The "Christian" right voter is a single issue voter. IMHO, in order to stack the SCOTUS against Roe v Wade, they are willing to throw this entire nation under the bus. To hell with peace, healthcare, the elderly, the disabled and everybody else. To hell with Planet Earth, too, because that's what your blessed Trump plans--to eliminate all regulations from the EPA that have reversed the horrible pollution of the 1960s, and just MIGHT save our planet from extinction.
Seriously...? One issue? Throw away everything for your so-called "right-to-life?" Oh, but it's only life until birth the GOP way. As long as they don't have to feed, clothe, educate or house that child after they force it into this world. Let's not forget that....
Trump is NOT chosen by God. Jesus would NOT vote for him. 
Jesus would be a member of today's Democratic Party and he would vote Blue. And he would have voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary, but he would stand with Hillary in the general election to protect the Poor, the Sick, the Disabled, the Homeless, etc.
And so will I. So should anyone else who has the nerve to call themselves a "Christian...."
