She enjoys an active family life and is an avid reader. “Outsiders” is a young adult reader’s choice for its lively and diverse characters.

The main character Jaylen Hayes knows that she is different from all other seventeen-year-old girls. Possessing extraordinary intelligence, she is also uncannily powerful and inexplicably hated by wild animals. But it is not until she transfers to Trinity High that she learns the truth about who—and what—she really is.

Instinctively drawn to two new classmates—the intense and passionate Indigo, and the charismatic and breathtakingly gorgeous Michael—Jaylen soon learns the shocking secret of their shared heritage, and the bloodline that extends to the stars. However, all is not what it seems, and Jaylen soon finds her newfound security threatened when a trusted friend becomes a dangerous and vengeful enemy.

“Outsiders has character personas that tastefully voice complex and challenging social issues of today. Ferebee points out body image, people trying to change themselves, and many more topics.”  said Steve Owen, of Independent Publishing News. Fans also agree that her adding bits of LGBT were clever and something that took a lot of courage.

The Biographies of John Charles Fremont: The very first Republican candidate for President

John Charles Fremont in 1856 became the very first Republican candidate for President. He was also an adventurer, explorer, military officer, businessman, and U.S. Senator.

He became the military governor of northern California by right of military conquest, not election. He was one of the first two U.S. Senators selected by the new state of California to represent the state in Washington. Fremont was a businessperson. His $10M California gold country holdings were worth the equivalent of perhaps a half billion dollars today, making Fremont, one of the wealthiest candidates for president in U.S. history.

Fremont’s colorful life and career made him vulnerable to allegations of scandal -his campaign was dogged by claims of illegitimate birth, secret Catholicism, and even cannibalism. Some of these claims were true. And Fremont was hindered by his principled and steadfast opposition to the further spread of slavery – the issue that in four short years would propel the nation into a bloody Civil War.

His distinguished career of exploration helped open the West to settlement and popularized the region to countless emigrants who used his reports as their guidebooks: Mormon settlers in Utah, California’s Forty-Niners, and emigrants to Oregon. His unorthodox campaign to conquer California ultimately succeeded, but left him court-martialed and disgraced.

The Biographies of John Charles Fremont surveys the career of this amazing character and tells how the story of his life was captured by journalists, historians, and biographers.

If you are seeking an alternative to reading mysteries or fiction. Fremont’s real life reads far better than any fiction novel.
