So... the story of my life. I've often thought about this moment, about what it would be like to write my memoirs. I always thought it would make me feel important. It doesn't. If anything it makes me feel a little strange. The truth is, I should never have been this famous guy. I wasn't the cool, clever, good-looking boy at school. But I always dreamt of it, hoped for it, longed for it: throughout school when I was disruptive, in my teens when I tried to form my own boy band and through hundreds of auditions for parts which were met with constant rejection. Until finally I co-wrote Gavin and Stacey. And my whole life changed. This is that story. The story of how I found myself here, talking to you.

A survey of recent medical studies shows a rise each year in the number of people diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. Even in the face of this increase, however, pastors have not been adequately informed on how to effectively communicate, counsel, and minister to those with ADD/ADHD. May I Have Your Attention Please? seeks to educate pastors and church leaders about the nature of ADD and ADHD, including the statistics and the symptoms of each disease, so that they may better understand how to properly minister to congregants affected by these disorders. This unique guide provides insight into a topic that has not been addressed previously for the clergy, aiming to bridge the gap between medical treatment of ADD/ADHD and ministry to those dealing with the disorders. It offers medical data and statistics as well as practical application scenarios for clergy to use with their congregants. Educational and informative, May I Have Your Attention Please? helps pastors, church leaders, teachers, and volunteers minister more successfully to the widest population possible and to help them better understand those who sit in their church services each week.

As the title implies, this book is just about conversations. I wrote it to give my students ample material for speaking practice. An educator can discuss with students and/or dissect the dialogues contained in this book, as only he or she can do. There are a loads of idioms, phrasal verbs and colloquial expressions for a wide variety of situations and topics. The vocabulary in each dialogue is challenging but not unfamiliar or unusual. If you are a student, the idea is to get used to collocations and colloquialism. Practice, Practice, practice! In addition, the dialogues were composed for Jr. High School ~ Freshman University level students. In other words, the grammar found within the dialogues doesn't stray too far from levels most students are used to seeing in their respective school exams. After 17 years teaching university level ESL classes, I've found that practice, practice, and practice are the top three methods of improving speaking ability.

It began with the heartbreaking unparalleled bond between family and lovers trust. An Emotional, provocative, spiritual and unforgettable novel about how we love, how we long to be loved, how the choices we make from day to day has cause and effect in our everyday lives. This novel is broad in scope and settings. Wise, and dramatically true in its story telling. “When Everything Get’s In The Way” is a completely captivating novel that foretells deeply felt pains of betrayal, lies, deceit and the broken bonds of trust by a loved one and what it means to be human and to love and wanting to be loved. What happens to them and the large and small manners, in which it echoes throughout, the lives of so many other people is proof of the moral complexity of life, which involves lovers wounds, and betrayal.
