"The Chemical Drones is a charming and relevant story that will appeal to kids of all cultures. It's fun, but at the same time, teaches some important lessons about respect, getting along with people, and doing the right thing! (The voice of) Siri gives it a thumbs up!!"
Susan Bennett, Speaker and the original voice of Apple's Siri
"A modern day, new-age story with a combination of illustration and text which makes it appealing to the young readers. It kind of occupies a space between Diaries of a Wimpy Kid and the evergreen Famous Five that we grew up reading. The characters are relatable and the book has the potential to evolve into a series of adventures by 'The Chemical Drones'."

They Burned My Book????


Recently I got a message from a person that wanted to let me know that they burned a book that I was co-author on called, The Big Black Book of Sex Positions.  My first thought was someone actually burned my book, and I was appalled.  I could not have imagined someone purchasing a book that I put hard work into and then burning it.  That seemed so primate and middle ages to me.  Then I tried to put a positive spin on it, thinking maybe they had no heat in their house and the burning of books was to keep their family warm. No matter how hard I tried to make something up that seemed positive it didn't work.  So I sat with this all night and then...

That is when I realized some thing, if they purchased my book they have ever right to burn it!  I let go of the thought that they were burning my personal property and allowed myself to be okay with it.  You see their freedom of speech allows them the right to have their opinion of my book even if that meant burning it.  So I am now at peace with it.  I actually responded to this person and told them that if they felt that strongly about it they should see if they can get a million people to purchase my book and burn it.  

So, I hope they take up that challenge and appreciate that we have the freedom of speech here.  In that process I am sure that many of those people might find The Big Black Book of Sex Positions very helpful and instead of burning it using it to set their relationship on fire again!  

IF you are curious the book is listed below and I am okay with you picking up a copy to either help your relationship or if you want to make a statement and burn it.  Peace be with us all and be thankful we live in a place where we can express our opinions.   



Within this accessible and approachable guide, you’ll find exciting and steamy sex positions like Bottoms Up, The Joyride, The Lotus, Spread Eagle, as well as more than twenty less-frequent, but more adventurous sexual topics and positions. You’ll also discover sections about foreplay, toys, setting the mood, exercises to improve your performance and flexibility, why size only matters when it’s wrong, and many other burning topics that are often overlooked. 

Get ready to take your sex life to a whole-new level with The Big Black Book of Sex Positions.

Author Roland Sato Page is a freshmen writer from St. Louis Mo.. He selected writing as a treatment to his depression due to Lupus. A once popular tattoo artist of Black Pearl Gallery located in the downtown area. Lupus hindered his body art career therefore he transformed his visual talent to literary expression. The dilemma was determining what topic to write about. His family encouraged him to tell his life story. Roland was skeptical to write about his past because of embarrassment. However his son, Yung Ro, convinced the author to allow the world to hear his story. 


After a few months Roland released his heart and soul onto paper. Finding a new passion at the same time battling his depression. The new ordained author was content. He agreed to the bio topic yet choose to do it in fiction form. Reason being to respect the identity and privacy of the characters in the story line. 


Why was it important to give so much attention to his story? Well decades ago Roland was a St. Louis police officer convicted of federal crimes because of his family affiliation. Roland wanted to clear his reputation so no one would consider him a corrupted cop. He explains he never used his authority to commit any criminal activity. He does acknowledge his association to family members who were involved in unsavory activity. The book illustrates the inner battle between loyalty to the badge and family. It's a fusion of urban crime, humor, and romance. A tale of karma, confession, and redemption. 

He's excited to see how the book fares in the literary world. Thus far the feedback has been amazing the anticipation is building. Roland contributes the buzz to the current state of community and police relationship. Law enforcement is such a controversial topic now.

Tell Us The Mermaid Story



Mythical sea stories with mermaids at the center, can add Gem and her clan of merpeople to the list.  

Roxie Thomas is a freelance ocean photographer who gets an assignment in New Zealand, and takes her nine-year-old triplets along. The girls look forward to volunteering and joining the efforts to help free a pregnant beached whale. They take advantage of the 14-hour long flight, and beg their mother to tell them the mermaid story. They love hearing the fantasy tale she’s been sharing with them for years. 

What the girls don’t know, is that the events in the story are really a watered down version, of a magical time from Roxie’s own past. A past buried in New Zealand; on an island she hadn’t been back to in ten years. Telling the story again stirs up memories, and soon Roxie is more excited to arrive than her daughters are. But she’s also concerned about a phone conversation with David, her husband. He’s a marine biologist, and is already in New Zealand, working on a related assignment. David suspects something ominous might be happening in the waters near the island. His research equipment has recorded some unusual activity that could be affecting the sea life. Roxie’s biggest fear is that her old friend is still in the area, and may be in some kind of danger. 

Through the grown up eyes of Roxie Thomas, Gem is introduced; a young, impulsive flipper from the Nesirkie clan. Gem ignores the rules of the merpeople and befriends one of the tail-less. What Roxie doesn’t reveal is that the young human girl in the story is the least of the merpeople’s problems that summer.

With this book, the stage is set, and readers get acquainted with the beliefs, philosophies, and goings on in the merworld, as described by Gem, via her human friend. 

BOOK EXCERPT:  

Roxie looked cautiously around the dimly lit section of the airplane where they were seated. Although her and the children were the only ones within earshot, she began speaking in a low, conspiratorial tone.
“You know girls, when you live on an island in the South Pacific, it’s not unusual to hear all kinds of sea stories about mythical creatures and sea dwellers. To the islanders, folklore about mermaids and merpeople are much more than just a fairytale. They take their stories seriously and they’re not shared with just anyone. So the mermaid story is like a secret that only us Thomas girls can ever know about.” She gave each of them a warning stare and didn’t even smile. They loved it.
“This story is never to be repeated, except when you’re older and you have your own daughters to pass the secret on to. But you must be sure to forbid them from ever sharing the story with anyone else, except for their daughters.”
“Why mommy? How come we can’t tell anyone else?”
As usual, Opalene asked the same question, each time she heard the story, and as usual, her sisters hushed her up. “Leelee!” “Yeah. Be quiet Leelee!”
Roxie gave her a quick explanation so she could move on. “Well, the reason you can’t tell everyone is because this is a magical story and it’s not for everyone’s ears. If you share it with too many people, the magic will be broken. So whoever is lucky enough to hear the story, they have to be sure and follow the rules about who to repeat the story to.”
The girls all managed to stifle their giggles, and pretend to put on a serious face. “Alright ladies, before I can go on, you all have to swear to secrecy with a pinky swear.” The girls played along. After each of them locked their pinky fingers together and swore to keep the secret, Roxie continued. 

This story is about a little girl named Queenie and the summer she met some mermaids on her grandfather’s island. Even though Queenie would end up meeting and making friends with more than one mermaid that summer, the very first one she ever met was named Gem. Gem became one of Queenie’ very best friends, and thanks to her, Queenie learned to stop being afraid of the water.

Illya Oslov's village is on the brink of starvation. Food supplies are dwindling, and winter is slow to release its grip. The ways of the old world are regarded with fear and superstition. Reading, farming techniques and modern technology have been forgotten. But, Illya believes that the hidden knowledge of the old world holds the only hope for his people's survival.

In a tale of greed and intrigue, in a devastated world, Illya must navigate the treacherous waters of knowledge, ignorance, and prejudice. He must form a tenuous alliance with his greatest enemy, putting his very life on the line to become his people's greatest hope. But, will his newfound knowledge prove to be their salvation? Or will it destroy them all?

A compelling post-apocalyptic story that holds on and won't let go!
