Sixteen candles lead to a summer of self-discovery in Timothy Woodward’s debut, IF I TOLD YOU SO
Sixteen-year-old Sean Jackson’s summer is off to an inauspicious start. The only place hiring in his small New Hampshire hometown is the local ice cream shop owned by the “Fabulous” Renée, who has a reputation for being tough on employees.

On his first day of work, Sean meets Becky, a wickedly funny New York transplant with a sarcastic attitude and a taste for mischief. The store manager, Jay, is eighteen, effortlessly cool, and according to Becky, “likes” Sean the way Sean’s starting to like him.

Love triangle burns amidst roar of 1920s Paris in new historical novel
In “Jagged Blind Hop Zozzle” (ISBN 1466359919), M. S. Simpson dives headlong into the artistic wonders of 1920s Paris.
The Great War had ended while American jazz and the hypnotic dancing of Josephine Baker had taken over night clubs. Into this air of sophisticated hedonism comes Cuthbert Westbrook-Madison, a 30-year-old Amherst professor on sabbatical. He heads to the City of Lights to write and soak up the life all around him.
Along with Baker, he meets the luminaries who converged there, such as James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. Together, this avant-garde takes in the splendor of a city of which the legendary dancer Baker once said, “I do so love a night out in Paris. Caviar and champagne, and the jagged blind hop zozzle from time to time.”
