The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

Everyone shops using price comparisons. If you know that milk was $10 a gallon in Ripoff Mart and $3 a gallon in the supermarket, you’d never shop at Ripoff Mart. But look at how prices vary in hospitals. For joint … Continue reading
I read this AP analysis the other day and tried to figure out exactly why it bothered me. Then I realized: The theme of the article is that there is no big anti-Muslim backlash after the Boston bombers turned out … Continue reading

They’re brothers from Chechnya, and yes, they’re Muslim terrorists. And Boston is under lockdown. They’ve killed several police officers and left a trail of bullets and bombs. So what are Chechnyan terrorists doing here? I’m sure we’ll find out over … Continue reading
