I believe my book has a mass appeal that transcends boundaries of age and gender
– it will hold the interest of even the most discerning reader. Secondly, the main character of the
book Amy Benson is someone every teenage girl will be able to relate to. She

Tina Haveman is the founder and CEO of eXtasy Books and Devine Destinies. Tina was born in Europe, left there at age eight, then traveled to several countries with her parents, to finally settle in Australia for many years. She immigrated to Canada in 1973 where she has lived since.

Business”), and God’s Business. She points out that anytime you find yourself
in “Other People’s Business” or “God’s Business,” you feel stressed. Why?
Because you don’t have any business in “Other People’s Business” or “God’s
Business.” When you’re in “Other People’s Business,” or “God’s Business,” you
have no control and no influence. In fact, when you’re in “Other

SUMMARY FOR JUST BILL, a fable Following an exciting flash-forward
prologue, the story begins on a May evening
in Naples, Florida at the Donegal Golf and Country Club. From outside Glenda and Cliff
Gilmore’s pool enclosure, four dogs watch as a grieving Glenda pours out her
heart to Hotspur, her husband's border collie. Two hours earlier,
Glenda was shopping when Cliff died playing Frisbee with Hotspur. Much
younger than Cliff, and a former model, Glenda is the object of gossip and
dislike among the older wives at Donegal. The reader is next introduced to
Bill and his family. The dog is seen as both simple and sympathetic,
but a certain dislike is revealed in his master's wife. She objected
