Indian Legend Comes To Life in Laura J. Stegmaier’s New Children’s Book

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Ling-Ling Turner, PPI: Mystery of the Rising Island” by Laura J. Stegmaier

A young girl and her friends know there’s more than meets the eye when lakefront construction work unearths a mysterious floating mass in this new middle-grade book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Connecticut’s Northwest Hills conjure up images of winding country roads, 18th century clapboard houses, spectacular fall foliage, and the next Christmas tree for Rockefeller Plaza. Briarwood Cove, a fictional Norman Rockwellesque hamlet ensconced deep in these hills, conjures up one additional thing – paranormal activity. It’s a good thing eleven-year-old adopted Chinese empath/precognitive Ling-Ling Turner is a resident. Ling-Ling is a PPI (Paranormal Private Investigator). When strange things happen in town, most adults either “pooh-pooh” them or come up with a logical explanation. Ling-Ling knows better – she is a firm believer in the veracity of paranormal activity, who delves into bizarre occurrences to seek the truth.

In Ling-Ling Turner, PPI: Mystery of the Rising Island, doom casts a shadow over Briarwood Cove when blasting at a lakefront construction site releases a floating stink pile of muck from the depths of frosty Lake Tahaso. Coyotes arrive in town, and mysterious attacks on domesticated animals occur at night. While the local police deem coyotes responsible for the attacks, Ling-Ling and her friends Chloe, Jada, and Pablo discover the truth: the tiny town is under the spell of a revived massive ancient Indian curse!

Author Laura J. Stegmaier has written children’s fiction in a variety of media, including graphic novels, internationally broadcast animated television series, audio books and comic strips. The deep woods surrounding her longtime home in the rural Northwest Hills of Connecticut, as well as her belief in otherworldly and paranormal phenomena, inspire her writing.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Success Through Logical Thinking” by Dr. Frank Layman.

A healer of the body turns his attention to the mind in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Physical therapist and orthopedic specialist Frank Layman provides insights on thinking logically instead of turning to emotion to promote personal success.

Achieving success requires dedication and overcoming obstacles – including emotions, which can put up a wall that prevents attaining that success, no matter how it’s defined. This new book aims to provide a logical thinking model so readers can approach life with the intent of improving it, including moving away from being governed by emotions and the negative results that such thinking can create. Identifying barriers and applying logical thinking to resolving them is the first step on the path to success.

To be successful in any endeavor takes a complex culmination of approaches. Dr Frank Layman’s experiences in helping patients’ recover and his own life experiences and successes make for motivating and compelling approach to self-improvement.

“Success Through Logical Thinking” offers specific tips for moving toward logical thinking. Author Frank Layman describes the benefits of logical thinking as a means to alter perspective and influence behavior, as well as a means to diminish self-doubt, which can sabotage commitment to goals. He includes warnings on managing expectations, not wasting time and avoiding temptation to be distracted. A test in one of the book’s final chapters allows readers to better assess their ability to apply logical thought to issues of everyday life and point out negative habits they can then work to eliminate so they can fully achieve their goals and build on their success.

Author Frank Layman, a specialist in orthopedics and sports medicine, has more than 20 years of experience treating athletes and patients. Layman, a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, North Caroline Physical Therapy Association and American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Therapy, has degrees in sports medicine/athletic training and physical therapy, as well as a doctorate in education from the University of Virginia and a medical degree in physical therapy from the University of St. Augustine. A national speaker for Cross Country education is a Major in the U.S. Army Reserves, serving for more then 13 years. He is a clinician and leader with Randolph Hospital. When he’s not teaching and treating patients, Layman practices Brazilian jujitsu, studies aerodynamics and is a pilot. He also enjoys time with his loving family.
