"How To Steal a Truck Full of Nickels" is a funny story about despair. On the run and out of money, small time hustler Reuben Nash hijacks a truck from the Denver Mint driven by his unsuspecting older brother Rico to help resolve a long standing debt to a small time crime boss and loan shark named Jimmy Friday.
Unfortunately for them, they end up stealing money than Reuben has promised to pay back to Jimmy. Faced with a choice of permanent bodily harm or a long stretch in federal prison, Reuben and Rico decide a long shot plan to cash in their stolen coin and escape to Mexico to start their lives over. After Rico’s ex-girlfriend Pamela re-enters his life with big ideas for the truck full of nickels, it’s a madcap race to the border keeping one step ahead of former FBI agent Martin Shea and a who’s who of local and federal law enforcement, con men, common thieves and opportunists. This is Jeffrey A. Cooper’s first book. Writing, not reading.

Space pirate Captain Darius Rivers boards the enemy ship Avenger in search of treasure and encounters more than he bargained for. Rather than fight, Captain Hector Ramirez awaits him in silence--ready to bring Darius's fantasies to life. CONTENT ADVISORY: This title contains a "happy for now" ending.
The nursery was high up under the eaves, so that the rest of the house seemed faraway -- a wonderful region where music might sound, or where, by stealing down, one might see fair ladies like the princesses of the tales smiling at gallant gentlemen. One's own mother might turn, indeed, into a princess just before it was time to go to bed, with white arms and jewels upon her neck. Then one fell asleep knowing that no day in Weir could be without its enchantment, whether the clouds seemed caught in the tree-tops, or the snow flew and made the red roofs white; or whether the sun danced on the green lawns, for each day ended with a faery tale, and these are the tales of Weir.
