"The Holston Collection" is packed with action, thrills and suspense as well as some of the supernatural with a little time-travel and sorcery added for good measure. There's never a dull moment anywhere from cover to cover.
Sugar and Spite is about a young lady whose name is Ashley Reynolds who thought that she had the “Perfect Marriage” until she finds out unexpectedly not only about her husband Hunter's infidelity, but that he has another family on the other side of town.  The pain that she endures trying to keep this “secret” from her immediate family and close friends and the outcome of it all.
What is Tourette syndrome (TS)? To people who do not have it, it is probably not what they think. To fully understand this baffling disorder you must be afflicted with it. There is no other way. Even then, there are no guarantees. The everyday feelings and urges to perform the tics that are symptoms of TS are unlike any that a person without TS could imagine. There are as many cases of TS as there are people who have it. No two cases are exactly alike. This book was put together in
order to raise awareness for TS. After reading the stories you will not totally understand TS. That is a given. It is my hope that the readers will understand it just a little bit better. Even if just one person learns more
about TS or gains a greater understanding of TS as a result of reading this book, it will be well worth the time and effort it took to write it. Tourette syndrome is an often, misunderstood neurological disorder.  The main symptoms are what are called “tics”. A tic is defined as an involuntary, sudden, rapid, repetitive, unbalanced, motor movement or vocalization. The tics occur many times a day, nearly every day.  The most common motor tics are rapid eye blinking, shoulder shrugging,
squinting, and facial grimacing. Some of the less common tics include grinding teeth, neck jerking, flailing arms, biting nails, and toe curling.The most common vocal tics are throat clearing, sniffing, grunting, coughing, and stuttering or stammering.
There are a few important facts about TS that are important know.  Up to one in 100 schoolboys have some form of TS. Three to four males have it for every female. The diagnosis is often missed. TS symptoms usually decrease with age, but not always. TS is an inherited disorder.  Learning disorders, panic attacks, school phobias, speech problems, and sleeping problems are common too.  People with TS usually also have either ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), or OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). Many people with Tourette's have both of these accompanying disorders.
When most people think of TS they think of the disorder where people with it swear uncontrollably and profusely. This symptom of TS (coprolalia) is the easiest symptom to recognize, but it is also the rarest.  It is important to remember that coprolalia is present in less than twenty
percent of TS patients.  Most people with TS, when describing a tic, say that they feel a sudden tension building up that must be relieved by performing the tic.
Tics are suppressible for varying lengths of time. The longer the tics are suppressed the more the tension builds up and the more there is a need to release them.
Another major characteristic of TS is a waxing and waning of the symptoms. This includes both a change from one tic to another, to the complete disappearance of symptoms for varying periods of time.  The tics usually begin during the ages of five through nine, but symptoms can start at any time. There have even been some cases where they started late into adulthood.
While motor and vocal tics are the main symptoms used to make a diagnosis, and they are what are most identified with TS, there are many other problems that can be associated with it, the main of which are behavior related.  The people with TS who suffer from these behaviors are often angry, argumentative, and confrontational. Everything has to be their way or
is someone else's fault. One minute they'll be fine and the next minute they'll be in a rage. They tease their siblings relentlessly. They have a short temper, smart mouth, talk back, throw temper tantrums over nothing, and won't take “no” for an answer. Many of them lie and steal too. Of course, it is difficult to tell if a person's TS is causing these behaviors or something else is, but many studies of TS patients have shown that these behaviors are much more common in them than in people without it.  I am proud to present my autobiography about my life with Tourette syndrome.

A college graduate, not to mention future father and husband--in that order--realizes he can make a living, or his living can make him.

A rising young pop star and her unlikeliest fan meet by chance, fall in love and stand up to an unforgiving society that frowns on their identities.

Sugar and Spite is about a young lady whose name is Ashley Reynolds who thought that she had the “Perfect Marriage” until she finds out unexpectedly not only about her husband Hunter's infidelity, but that he has another family on the other side of town.  The pain that she endures trying to keep this “secret” from her immediate family and close friends and the outcome of it all.

ANGEL ENCOUNTERS, a near car accident, and the strange turn of events with the school bully has Toby's head spinning.

Children's book with the added bonus of hunting for the 21 hidden crickets concealed in the detailed artwork.
'The Cause of Darkness' is the story of a 16-year-old boy named Teddy Miller set during the last full-year of the American Civil War. Teddy lives with his father and brother in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. They lead more-or-less normal lives even while the War rages around them. But everything changes when their farm is burned, and Teddy's father is arrested and sentenced to hang for espionage. Teddy's single-minded quest to save his father reads like a grand adventure, full of gun fights, horse chases and 19th century justice. There is even a beautiful Pinkerton detective who plays a major role in Teddy's exploits. But nearly all the adult characters act solely in their own self-interest and few have Teddy's welfare at heart. Left without adult guidance, Teddy takes actions to save his father which have consequences that he cannot fully comprehend; and it is the consequences of these actions that drive the novel to its conclusion.

Shy orphan Joe Bryant's best friend James sets him up with a job at a long-established scientific research and development company in his hometown of Capistrano. Despite Joe's lack of the basic knowledge required for the position, Trans-Port Incorporated's boss, Professor William Carver, appears only too welcoming. The catch soon appears; Joe is pressurised into being the subject of the team's teleportation test trials. Luckily things turn out well for him. That is until it's explained that the test didn't merely teleport Joe to another place, it sent him to a parallel reality: an identical copy of Capistrano. Almost identical… It's the world Joe's father John escaped to after committing a terrible crime twenty years previously. The process, invented by John himself, is called ‘The Transference'. Now Carver and Trans-Port want Joe to use it again – to bring John Bryant back. But first the stunned Joe needs some answers: like how come he's the only one suitable for the task, who are the mysterious Institute? And why has he never left Capistrano? 

This mind-spinning tale of dual realities will have the reader guessing, then guessing again, as they follow the timid librarian's gradual awakening to the riddles that have dictated his life. As each new revelation brings him closer to the truth Joe is eventually faced with the biggest of them all - the one that could finally break him.

It appears as though the world is crumbling. At the bottom of the murky depths, the 'key workers' emerge. We are at the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic and are the ones trying to keep us from sinking deeper. 

As I work in a British supermarket, and have regrettably been doing it for a number of years, I am in a rather unique position where I can tell the tale of some of the downright ridiculous things that have happened since the COVID-19 outbreak took hold of the country. 

I have long argued that ultimately it doesn't matter what supermarket I work for, or where it's located for that matter, because they are all exactly the same - each and every one of them from Penzance to John O'Groats will be full of the same pitfalls. But with madness and disorder, comedy and daftness can emerge. Of course, the humour stems from humans doing what they do best - not listening to what they're being asked to do and making absolute 'covidiots' of themselves. 

This book is all about the 'covidiots' that have made the experience for supermarket workers like me infinitely more challenging than it should have been. Where there are people, there are 'covidiots'.

Christine Stewart's plan for the day is simple: wake up and head off to work, traveling to Oklahoma in 1867 to deport a cyber-criminal. After work, it's back to 2070 Los Angeles to prepare for a vacation with her son, Michael.
That's the plan.
Then the system fails, leaving Christine stranded with no supplies and minimal training for this era. What seems like a bad situation only gets worse when she is flung even further away to a place in time where her choices and actions mean so much more to the world than whether or not she ever makes it home again.

The country had just gone to war with Japan, and a new patriot is born in the small coastal town of New Bedford Massachusetts. The date is January 20th, 1942.

Such as "Just an Old Piece of Cloth," "Woman Warrior," "The Eagle." to name but a few and each with the photo or painting that inspired him. A book worth reading and sharing with friends and family

Latest Poem

Where are your bones, I wonder?

Your dust, your last breath?

I see you queued with your mates

In your final military assembly:

            Bates next to Beasley

            Gillum next to Green

            And so on.

It is a moment captured forever in brass letters,

The year scuffed and barely legible.

How does a hero sleep?  Do you dream of past valor?

Or soft shoulders and tender kisses lost forever?

This once hallowed ground is swathed in weeds,

Cannons and missiles rusted and impotent,

The fence sagging with age.

People pass by, but nobody sees.

Even the names have become ghosts.

John W. Bebout  2018
