Genre: memoir, nonfiction
Aviatrix is the captivating story of one of the first women pilots to break into the all-male airline flight cockpit. Hired in 1976 at Hughes Airwest, Mary Bush made a herculean effort to overcome the resistance and harassment she faced in such a position, but it was to no avail.
Mary was introduced to flying at an early age. She started flying as a teenager, studying and training long hours until she painstakingly obtained her ratings one by one. Financial hardships hit the family hard, though, and Mary–desperate for both flying experience and money–headed down to the infamous Corrosion Corner in South Florida to be a “freight dog” for fly-by-night operators. However, she was frequently denied work because of her gender. She kept praying, working, and struggling, though, with the hope of one day becoming an airline pilot, a job in which she would have both steady work and steady pay.
Then, after her brother is lost at sea in one of the family airplanes, Mary is more determined than ever to become a pilot at an airline, just as her brother had planned to be. So, when she is offered the position at Hughes Airwest, Mary is thrilled. Going out west to fly jets was everything she had dreamed of and worked for. The discrimination and lewd remarks she had often faced in Florida, though, had not even come close to preparing her for the relentless harassment she would encounter as the first woman pilot at an airline.
A close-up and enthralling account of Mary’s struggles as an aviation pioneer, this book will astound, appall, and inspire you.

Genre: historical fantasy
How did I, the most beloved dragon slayer in the tri-kingdoms become the most wanted man? I wondered that as I awaited my execution in the dungeon of the Andleburg Castle. The same castle that I had been the honored guest during numerous occasions before. I was even betrothed to the king’s fair daughter, Alashia. Nonetheless, the kingdom wanted me dead.
It really wasn’t my fault that I had betrayed the kingdom. I blame it on King Wolfgang, for he knew I wasn’t ready to lead his men. He set me in a situation that I was doomed to fail; however, because of his enduring love to me, the son he never had, he was willing to put his crown in danger to let me escape.
I had been an icon to the kingdom since I was a young lad. I could do what most men only dreamed about doing. I could slay dragons. Andleburg, along with the surrounding kingdoms, owed their safety to me. It was because of me they could farm and walk their roads without the worry of dragons.
