Part I - The Touch: A Supernatural Story
Joshua also has experienced little love in his short life. He has no memory of his parents and in actuality, the voice, which causes him so much distress, is the only reality he has ever known. The voice is real, but it is a supernatural presence. Gabriel's "autism" is really a defense against the weight of the power that has engulfed his heart, mind and soul, from the very beginning.
I am searching for that spirit and voice in this novel! More to come! Gabriel does not trust this presence, though he finds that the wonder of what he is experiencing is far too great for him to resist. The old beast is up to something out of character here. This voice gives him a power that he can transfer by touch.
They will ultimately discover that the presence is not at all who they expected. I will humbly submit that this book is written in the spirit of Dean Koontz's works and also Stephen King's works. The bond between these two young boys is the beginning of an amazing journey. Together, they find the strength to take the gift, and to use it for good.
Living in an orphanage in austin, all of his life, Texas, the voice has shown him more attention and love than any other person. He befriends one other special young person in that orphanage, Joshua Fellows. Gabriel appears autistic because he hears a voice.

I, Ninfa Artemis: her autobiography
The novel is set in Portugal and London. It involves music since i’m also a singer and songwriter, forgiveness even of those who knew exactly the harm they were inflicting, prophecies, betrayal, hopes and the ways I found to get through, heartaches, disappointments, psychics, challenges, love, obsessions, no matter how impossible it seemed.
In 2000, in the midst of my heartache, I found an anchor to remain alive by writing poems. Usually you are a famous singer first, then you write your book telling your story. None of them rhyme. She has an english degree and bachelor’s in Theater. I’m truly happy when i write, including at this very moment as I type these words to you.
My motto in life is: “Where there is a will, there is a way”. My name is Ninfa Artemis from Portugal. The book has five chapters. P. S. The feelings they conjure also don’t rhyme with a calm mind.

In his imagination, a surgeon, mark is a heroic soldier, and a daredevil striving to live up to the ideals of the 1950s.
