It’s the Age of a Child Who Grows To Manhood Quickly In His New Body

Playground in My Mind is a bit of whimsy story about a boy who has the capability of aging quickly.  The story begins with Michael appearing at the age of 5 years old to the artist, Taylor Bouchand who doesn’t know what to make of him or what to do with him.  When she asks the child where are his parents, he says, “No one is ready for me” and thus begins her association with this little boy, Michael who grows at an alarming speed through childhood.

To add to the confusion, Taylor will find that what she thought she knew about her parents was not exactly true and this new knowledge goes a long way in explaining why Michael appeared to her.

Playground In My Mind Author J. B. TischendorfFrom the Author:
I began writing at the age of twenty because it was good therapy for me as a mother of an achondroplastic dwarf, at a time when there was not much knowledge or a support group.  To hone my skills I completed the University of Washington Certificate course, Introduction on Fiction Writing in September of 2001.  I attended a seminar on Writing Techniques and Styles, and another entitled How to Become a Successful Editor.  In 2016 and 2017 I participated in the James Paterson online courses for screen play and fiction writing.  As an avid reader, I organized a local Book Club here in Irondequoit…  I was presented in, “Two Thousand Notable American Women, Third Illustrated Edition”, prepared by the American Biographical Institute and published in 1991.  I was highlighted in an article by About Time Magazine in their Career Profile section in August, 1982.  Then shortly after the article appeared I was on the air for an interview at a Syracuse Cable Station in a 30 minute segment entitled “Successful Black Women in New York State” and taped another 30 minute segment for a program entitled “Spotlight On You”.  I appeared on WOKR-TV, “Shades Of Gray Program, where I was interviewed for Outstanding Achievement Recognition.  This took place in 1990. I was interviewed for an article on the front page of the Irondequoit Post for my fiction book released in 2000 and entitled Til Death Do Us Part?  I appearances on RNews (now known as YNN) in Rochester New York for my fiction book, and a nonfiction book entitled Who Says I’m Small in 2006, also promoted at the LPA (Little People of America) in Orlando Florida and Erie Pennsylvania in 2008.  I opened my home base computer business, J. Tischendorf Services (originally J. Saxton Services) in 1984 and Pageant Perfect Production in 1990.  I placed in the top 10 of the Mrs. New York State/America Beauty Pageant in 1983 and did freelance modeling for department stores.  I did photogenic modeling for Eastman Kodak Company’s Phototech Division and modeled for the Gannett Newspapers 1983 Annual Report and the United Way Annual Report.  I even participated in the special number drawing event for the New York State Lottery.  I continued to build this experience by commentating high school fashion shows.

In 2010, Tate Publishing released by non-fiction book, “The Madman, The Marathoner”.  Today I have several manuscripts, some of which I have entered in the Amazon book contest, and others that I continue to work on.

For the past several years I have participated in Author’s Night at Barnes & Noble which has kept my face in the public eye.  When it comes to wanting to be published and write, I am the real deal!

Dark Fantasy/Paranormal Thriller – The Knowing

The KnowingThe Knowing
By David Graham
Publisher: Urbane Publications
Published: March 2017
ISBN: 978-1911331094
ASIN: B06WP7LXQM
Pages: 360
Genre: Horror, Dark Fantasy, Paranormal Thriller

United by destiny, they must stand together to face an ancient evil…..

Ceri Edwards and two school friends lift the lid on an ancient book of recipes belonging to Betty Williams, a volunteer at the local hospital in Pontypridd, South Wales. Two Kansas City cops step off a flight at London Heathrow and one of them falls to the ground with a painful conviction that there’s something evil in the air.

United in their destinies, Ceri and the police officers are drawn into a world where prophecies are pitted against invisible forces planning to raze London to the ground and bring down the Royal Family.

It all rests with Dai Williams, recently knighted MI5 agent and reluctant hero, to bring some order to the improbable events and to ensure that afternoon tea at The Ritz continues for another hundred years.

A great cross between Kim Newman and Ben Aaranovitch and a thrill for any fan of contemporary urban horror.
