Kathy Garver, the teenage heartthrob from the hit series Family Affair (1966–1971), was no one-hit wonder, but a journeywoman actress who appeared in such classic films as Night of the Hunter and The Ten Commandments long before she became a television icon. This memoir is a recollection of a working actress’s experiences, from the many films, television shows, and stage plays in which she performed, to her second career as a voice-over specialist in popular animated films and audiobooks. Featuring anecdotes, Hollywood history, and details of her relationships with such stars as Charlton Heston and Jon Provost, Surviving Cissy is a veritable quilt of Kathy’s exciting life.

Detective Caleb Walker had taken on some tough cases for Guardian Angel Investigations, but when Madelyn Andrews came to him, claiming that her five-year-old daughter was able to "communicate" with her twin sister who'd never made it home from the hospital, Caleb was skeptical. One glimpse at the beautiful single mother, though, and he couldn't walk away. Now, as he looked into what had really happened when Madelyn went into labor, suspicious details were uncovered. Details that prompted Madelyn to cling to him as pain consumed her. And the deeper he dug, the more invested Caleb became in their tiny family, in their safety when danger penetrated their lives—and in their salvation when he promised to bring a little girl home….

When Television Brought Us Together

I'm happy to know I'm not the only one looking back at the television series of my youth not just with nostalgia, but with longing for programs today that comfort, nourish, entertain and reflect who we are.

Why do millions of people love classic television shows? One reason, certainly, is that many Americans have become disenchanted with the current TV landscape. The shows from decades past are more than a source of happy shared memories among millions of people; they are a common thread weaved through our culture. We're 50 years beyond most of their debuts now. Do they still mirror how we live? Should they? When Television Brought Us Together celebrates the era in television that came of age with the Baby Boomer generation, and how its most fondly remembered shows can still inspire us to emulate the ideals and ethics it portrays. "David Hofstede delves into the meanings of our favorite comforting classics and compares them with the TV fare of today. You'll be happy you stopped by to take a long breath of nostalgic fresh air and rediscover why these past shows are so classic. Totally recommended!" - Kathy Garver - Star of Family Affair and author of Surviving Cissy "Thanks to television, America was able to laugh together, cry together and love together, because we watched together. David reminds us how television united, rather than divided, a large and diverse country and how, even today, it has the power to provide valuable lessons for living in the real world. - Mitchell Hadley, author of The Electronic Mirror and founder of It's About TV blog "David Hofstede has encyclopedic knowledge and spot-on insight into TV shows of the past. I'm happy to know I'm not the only one looking back at the television series of my youth not just with nostalgia, but with longing for programs today that comfort, nourish, entertain and reflect who we are." -- Kathryn Leigh Scott, star of Dark Shadows and author of The Dark Shadows Companion "David Hofstede's thoughtful takes on our favorite TV shows from the '50s, '60s, '70s, and '80s-and the shared experience we often felt as we grew up watching them together, in a three-network, pre-DVR, pre-viewing on demand, pre-social media, pre-a lot of other things universe-are sometimes whimsical, sometimes analytical, but always absorbing to read." - Ed Robertson, Host of TV Confidential and author of 45 Years of The Rockford Files

The Magnificent Medills

The riveting story of the country’s first media dynasty, the Medills of Chicago, whose power and influence shaped the story of America and American journalism for four generations When thirty-two-year-old former lawyer Joseph Medill bought a controlling stake in the bankrupt Chicago Daily Tribune in 1855, he had no way of foreseeing the unparalleled influence he and his progeny would have on the world of journalism and on American society at large. Medill personally influenced the political tide that transformed America during the midnineteenth century by fostering the Republican Party, engineering the election of Abraham Lincoln and serving as a catalyst for the outbreak of the Civil War. The dynasty he established, filled with colorful characters, went on to take American journalism by storm. His grandson, Colonel Robert R. McCormick, personified Chicago, as well as its great newspaper, the Chicago Tribune, throughout much of the twentieth century. Robert’s cousin, Joseph Medill Patterson, started the New York Daily News, and Joe’s sister, Cissy Patterson, was the innovative editor of the Washington Times-Herald. In the fourth generation, Alicia Patterson founded Long Island’s Newsday, the most stunning journalistic accomplishment of post–World War II America. Printer’s ink raged in the veins of the Medills, the McCormicks and the Pattersons throughout a century, and their legacy prevailed for another five decades—always in the forefront of events, shaping the intellectual and social pulse of America. At the same time, the dark side of the intellectual stardom driving the dynasty was a destructive compulsion that left clan members crippled by their personal demons of chronic depression, alcoholism, drug abuse and even madness and suicide. Rife with authentic conversations and riveting quotes, The Magnificent Medills is the premiere cultural history of America’s first media empire. This dynamic family and their brilliance, eccentricities and ultimate self-destruction are explored in a sweeping narrative that interweaves the family’s personal activities and public achievements against a larger historical background. Authoritative, compelling and thoroughly engaging, The Magnificent Medills brings the pages of history that the Medills wrote vividly to life.

A navy kid, Chaney at three years-old experienced her first deployment when her dad deployed for seven months to the Middle East. In an attempt to remember the funny and many times shocking things that Chaney said and did so that she could share them with her husband on the rare times he was able to call home, the author---Chaney's mom--- began writing them down in a journal she received as a birthday gift. Well after the deployment was over, Chaney continued to say and do funny things and her mom continued to document them in what became known around the home as the "Book of Chaneyisms." Those journal entries, from 2008-2017, have evolved for your reading and laughing pleasure, into "Life with a Twist of Chaney." Life with twist of Chaney truly is like a box of chocolates; you simply never know what you will get.
