In today’s OneHeadlightInkbook club suggestions we bring you a collection of actual New Mexico authored novels and a compilation book of anecdotes that we think ought be on store shelves.
Local Attorney Jonathan Miller has not one but five thrillers now available on Amazon.com.
Pick-up one or all five today to get a taste of what the Albuquerque Journal calls “…the next John Grisham.”
Keep-up with the New Mexican Author/Attorney at Law on Facebook here and most of all seek out local talent at every turn – you will find it.
As we did find local wife, mommy and communications conglomerate exec. Lisa Paz. Lisa is every woman, nay every parent. We fell in love with her on a rare night out for the working mom. We found her spectacular, charming and funny – a true inspiration.
Most of us know it yet not all of us talk about it – parenting is hard, especially if you’re doing it right. In the web log of Lisa’s subtly mind-blowing realizations she chronicles all the nutty haps that turn a world upside down at the drop of potty bucket. We’ll go ahead and dub her the next Dave Barry.
Along with her humorous take she reminds us of two very important things:
1. This stuff is hilarious and not for sissies – amateurs need not apply.
2. Other parents can rest assured that they are not alone in their daily absurdities – and it’s all so worth it.
In summation, if you’ve got the luxury of carving out a little time to cuddle-up with a thriller by the fire we say go New Mexican and check out Miller.
And if you find yourself too frazzled to follow several sentences in a row just hit send, send, send on every publishers inbox requesting that our home-town sister gets herself a book deal – because that’s a read you need!
Whatever your label, don’t scream “No big Government” with one face and force your religion, orientation and hypocrisies on my body, heart and soul out the other!
If the money you’re incensed over is stamped “in MY God only we trust”, you don’t agree that we’re free to love he or she, and you want to regulate the very body that is me, then I cannot drink your tea, join your GOP or ignore your OPP.
With a blog post almost as vast and colorful as our NM vistas, actress Olivia Wilde waxes romantic over the beauty and goodness of our capital city.
The Cowboys and Aliens star regularly tweeted little glimpses of her observations and experiences these many months of filming in the Land of Enchantment and she bids us adieu in this quaint novella where she wraps with:
“I have really enjoyed my experience in Santa Fe, and there is so much more I could write about (maybe I will) but for now, consider this a love letter to the above mentioned ingredients to my happy summer in my latest home away from home.”
Thank you Miss Wilde for the love letter that leaves us so much warmer and fuzzier than the the online morning after cab fair on the nightstand that is a Tweety-bye-bye.
Don’t forget to join our quest to get the likes of Cowboys back to NM for a local premiere gala!

Mine own copy of The Great Gatsby has been read many times over and there’s great nostalgia in following the same words over those very pages again and again.
The bound texts I’ve shared with others too are special, whether the copy of Pride and Prejudice that was returned early because it was just too much of a drain on my dear friend who preferred her copy of Ya Ya Sisterhood which I just couldn’t endure or the shared copy of Candide that my brother has enjoyed at least as many times as I have.
I hope at least one of these selections finds its way into your future and you find some joy in it:

Tracy Morgan’s I Am The New Black takes you through a basic human interest story where the commonalities between us, not based on race or class, but the simple sense of self that either drives us to succeed or to self-destruct, is all we really have or need to work with to move forward and upward.
Morgan recounts that woes no matter how bleak and triumphs so fleeting are ultimately not wholly defining. It’s a good think, dare I say even inspirational while easily read and entertaining. It’s his story but it’s all our lives that are poised for the sculpting – leaving one but to ask, what will I carve out today?
