Dennis Maione
"What I Learned From Cancer"
What I Learned from Cancer is part narrative, part reflection, and part primer. Readers first follow the story of Dennis Maione’s 20-year journey through two cancers and the diagnosis of a genetic condition that ensures, one way or another, his journey is ongoing. Marked by wit and wisdom alongside poignance and passion, this tale has laugh-aloud humour while acknowledging the struggle to find life and hope in the midst of trying times. Next, reflective essays present cancer as a journey not to be undertaken alone or without the right tools. Here, Maione explores the many dimensions of community. Written as advice for his 27-year-old self getting cancer for the first time, this is a glimpse into the soul of a cancer survivor. Finally, a series of imagined conversations with a doctor tackles such questions as: “What is cancer?” “How can cancer be treated and prevented?” “How are genetics linked to cancer?” and “How can I tell if my family has bad genes?” The narrative is compelling, the essays riveting, and the conversations stimulating and informative. This is a book to be read and then shared with your friends and family.

Carl Harrison
"White Rhino and the Tanqueray Crew"
Sardonic, satirical, and just plain funny, White Rhino and the Tanqueray Crew follows five childhood friends who journey to the island of Hawaii in hopes of reviving their failing relationships and egos-and unraveling a mystery surrounding a lost entity that has plagued them for years.
Eating fresh fruit so they can spend their money on gin, the men spend their days searching for clues as they wander beaches, scale volcanic mountains, encounter colorful locals, ogle bikini-clad women, explore spiritual sites, and scour the far reaches of their own distant memories-all while trying to unearth information that could crack the mystery that's hung over them for years.
A comic caper about friendship, adventure, and the ways we all change without recognizing it, White Rhino and the Tanqueray Crew is the perfect read for an afternoon on a Hawaiian beach-or in an arm chair in your own living room.

We will also have copies of Carl's other books, "A Garrulous Tramp" "Tramp on the Line" and "Tramp in England" available for sale and signing.
