For the past two years (2006-2008) The Bridge of Silver Wings has earned a name for itself both as a series of poems published in different e-zines and as a book first published in 2007. What makes this 2009 edition a special one is the inclusion of five new poems: "Angel of Better Days to Come"; "Midnight Flight of the Poetry Angels"; "Photographed Light of My Grandmother's Soul"; "There upon a Bough of Hope and Audacity"; and, "What Angels Call a Poet." Readers exploring the pages of this book are likely to experience it in different ways as they move back and forth between one poetic state of being and another. The Bridge of Silver Wings 2009 may at times appear to be nothing more than a silk-thin illusion --resembling at moments either a terrifying nightmare or a healing vision--spread across an evening mist. While at other times it will register as solid as a concrete sidewalk or a giant boulder. (from author's Foreword)

At the school where Edward Enderby taught for over forty years, there were few who knew he'd once been a successful fighter pilot during the war.It was not something he ever talked about - not even to his family. And for over half a century he had, for the most part, managed to put the memories of those years out of his mind. But fifty years on, he is alone - a widower - with a strained relationship with his only son, and a career behind him that has brought him respect but little affection. In 1995, Britain is celebrating the anniversary of the end of the war, and Edward finds himself forced to confront the tragedy he suffered during those years. Embarking on a journey of self-discovery and personal redemption, Edward travels from England to Malta and then to Italy, and in doing so comes face-to-face with the idealistic young man he once was, and the devastated and traumatised 23-year-old he was to become. Following his experiences over the skies of England in 1941, through the dark days of the Siege of Malta, to the partisan struggle in Italy, A Pair of Silver Wings is a story of friendship, love and the terrible legacy of war, exploring universal themes of grief and redemption, and one man's quest to heal the scars of the past.

Kristin had everything-her own home, an exciting career, fulfilling volunteer work-in an instant that all changed. She went for a bike ride, but woke up a week later on life support, her life forever altered. In August 2010 an inattentive driver sent her and her bicycle flying into a ditch, and this independent professional was reduced to being totally dependent on others. Medical professionals, family, friends, colleagues, and cats all played their parts in her recovery. Even her beloved touring bike Silver was recovered and reconstructed. On Silver Wings: A Life Reconstructed is the story of one woman's struggle to face her changed life, and rebuild it on her own terms. Kristin Noreen picked up the pieces and reassembled them into something new, a bit different, but still her own. The journey taught her some surprising lessons about disability and the hardships we all face. It was not just about physical rehabilitation, but about living in her changed body and building a life that was more than just surviving. This story speaks of resilience with grace and humor, the will to regain strength, and the freedom of movement. Today Kristin is bicycle touring again. And you? What if the rules had changed and you didn't have the same range of choices you once did? If you faced your own death and got a second chance, what would you change about your life?
