About Me

My book, Know that I have Lived,  is about a curious little girl that scoops uptreasure, like a “marble” on a sidewalk and a toddler drowning in a stream. In third grade, Jill wins a bicycle that eventually leads to adventure and travel abroad. As a teenbabysitter, she unexpectedly takes care of a shooting victim and later comes toterms with the attraction of money. She determines life is not for the weak orthe artistic, but optimistically deals with setbacks while feeling the fear andliving anyway.

Know that I have Lived contains universal themes of curiosity, naivetéand self-discovery. The main character has a unique world view, such as likinghand-me-downs and valuing self-sufficiency. Despite a great work ethic, Jill’sresourcefulness and self-reliance are her downfall, as readers see in the finalchapter when she determines she has nowhere left to go but down – to the ultimate escape territory of the FloridaKeys.

The story travels fromthe Midwest to the Northeast to Florida, and from Switzerland to Italy andFrance as the girl moves with her family according to a corporation’s needs andexplores beyond America’s borders. Settings are richly conveyed as most evidentin the chapter, “Lemme Hole’ Your Peen-zel,” in which a seventh-grader cannotunderstand English spoken in her new hometown. At this point, resourcefulnessand self-sufficiency are a means of survival – as further shown in “I’ve Been Shot,” in which the teen displaysthe personal toll of handling life’s surprises.

Readers who enjoyedRobert Fulghum’s bestsellers, All I Needto Know I Learned in Kindergarten and Itwas on Fire When I Lay Down on It, will enjoy this memoir. Meaning in life,told with humor and compassion, has universal appeal and that is the aim: todelight readers everywhere. My website is www.jill-zima-borski.com.

About Me

William Power Bio

 

Born in Columbus Ohio in 1966, William grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. William`s family eventually moved to North Georgia in 1979. William grew up in rural North Georgia and never finished high school. He came from a poor family and a fatherless home.

 

 

 

William struggled with alcoholism and drug abuse at an early age until he found a new way of life in 1988. Married in 1989, he was blessed with three children by his first wife and is now a proud grandfather as well. William had always dreamed of becoming a writer and a published author; however, life, business, and children took his life in a different direction.

 

 

 

William owned and operated several successful businesses throughout his adult life and was successful in those ventures. He also spent 15 years training as a martial artist and was a certified instructor. He retired from his career in martial arts in 2008.

 

In early 2008, his business ventures began to fail under the weight of the falling economy; he decided to pursue his dream of writing and went back to college to earn his degree in English. In 2010 he began to write his first book “Apples of Gold: A collection of inspirational short stories and poems,” published in August of 2011. William decided to give this book away to readers in the form of a free eBook to allow his readers to get to know him and enjoy his work. The book remained in the top 10 highest rated poetry books on smashwords.com thanks to his readers.

 

 

 

Currently William is working on his third book, “Twisted Ride,” which should hit book shelves by the spring of 2013. Readers can also keep up with William`s current and future books at his website, “http://www.william-power-planet.com.”; His future goals include several fiction novels in the mystery-thriller genre. Thank you for your interest in his work.

 

 

 

"I have always hoped to touch the lives of others through the written word. I thank each and every individual who has taken the time to read my poetry and prose. I write from the heart and touch on subjects that are not always pleasant, but, all of us have a level of neurosis I suppose, often times, these are the ties that bind us—I love to speak the language of the human heart."

William Power
