Laura is a psychotherapist with 26 years of experience working with individuals and couples, has ADHD herself and knows firsthand how it can impact relationships.

    The Pittsburgh area is fortunate in having many good authors who have published thrillers, mysteries, ghost stories, love stories, books about current topics , books about the Pittsburgh area, about our sports teams and books of inspiration. Join us to hear from a group of our local authors about their works, how they developed their ideas and plots and how they got published. Here are the authors you’ll meet: Thomas Sweterlitsch is the author of Tomorrow and Tomorrow, a gritty science fiction thriller set in Pittsburgh in the not-too-distant future. A mysterious explosion has reduced most of the city to rubble and ashes. Years later, John Blaxton investigates his wife’s death through the “Archive,” which allows people to revisit the lost city and lost loved ones. In the course of his investigations, he finds that identities can be erased but crimes cannot. Is there a sinister explanation? Is the line between physical and virtual reality breaking down? A film option is in the works. J. J. Hensley, former police officer and special agent with the U. S. Secret Service, has drawn on his experiences in law enforcement to write Resolve, a finalist for Best First Novel by the International Thriller Writers Association and named one of the Best Books of 2013 by Suspense Magazine. Ex-cop and now professor of criminology, Cyprus Keller is running the 26.2 miles of a marathon, hunting down the killer of one of his students. Each chapter ticks off another mile of the marathon and as he runs, Keller provides the background of his search and gives readers the chilling sensation that the story could happen to anyone. His new thriller, Measure Twice, soon to be published, features a serial killer who sets new standards of murderous inventiveness. Penny McCann Pennington has written a moving novel about a family tragedy that forces two young children to move into their aunt’s decrepit boarding house in Pittsburgh, a city that is still reeling from the loss of its great steel industry. It Burns A Lovely Light is the story of growth and healing and the need for this newly-built family to pull together to avert disaster that threatens to strike again. Edie Claire began her publishing career with the ever popular Leigh Koslov mystery series set in the North Hills suburbs of Pittsburgh. The latest in the series, Never Thwart a Thespian, continues in the author’s usual fast-paced style, laced with intrigue and humor. Leigh Koslov’s aunt has decided to open a theatre for local thespians in an abandoned building in West View. The building’s history is unsavory, to say the least, including at least one murder. Leigh scrambles to discover the link between the murders of the past and the sinister threats of murder in the present. Edie Claire has also written romantic suspense novels and humorous plays and promises in all of her writings: suspense, happy endings, humor, and a dose of romance. Robert Needham invites the reader to explore the harmony between God and science in Mystery Mountain. A ninth grade science class and their teacher are offered an anonymous invitation to visit Mt. Ararat in Turkey with all expenses paid. The trip to this ancient Biblical site becomes more and more mysterious as it includes a variety of incidental encounters with some of the world’s greatest scientific, religious and philosophical thinkers, all of whom share a common bond not known to the world at large. These “visits” encourage the group to step outside their comfort zones and look at the world through different eyes. Earl McDaniel, former teacher and journalist, has written a gripping novel whose subject touches many lives in our current economy. Between Lives is the story of Mick Mackintosh, who has done everything right so far – earning a college degree, excelling in the fields of teaching and journalism, raising a family and sending a son off to college, when he is laid off from his job due to economic “belt-tightening.” As his attempts to re-enter the workforce fail, he feels diminished and undervalued and his world begins to crumble. He resists his younger son’s wish to join the military to fight in Iraq, struggles with financial problems, and is appalled by the indifference of the hiring process. Should he abandon the principles that have served him all his life in order to survive? Set in Western Pennsylvania, McDaniel’s novel will resonate with many readers who have endured the experience. After their presentations and a question and answer session, you will have an opportunity to meet the authors whose books will be available for purchase. Books make good gifts!

    Thomas Day, an 18th-century British writer and radical, knew exactly the sort of woman he wanted to marry. She would be pure and virginal, yet tough and hardy. She would live with him in an isolated cottage and be completely subservient to his whims. When his proposals were rejected by eligible society women, he adopted two orphans from the Foundling Hospital and attempted to make them into the perfect wife. Join us when we discuss How to Create the Perfect Wife: Britain’s Most Ineligible Bachelor and his Enlightened Quest to Train the Ideal Mate by Wendy Moore.

    Contact: Adult Services Reference Desk   412-366-8100x113   npladultserv@einetwork.net
    Last year on Channel 4 News, Dr. Paul Lieber, MD, of Rehabilitation and Pain Specialists, explained in detail the non-surgical, regenerative procedures used by the physicians in his practice to treat painful joint injuries and degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis. The procedures utilize a patient’s own stem cells or blood platelets to help heal damaged tissues, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, spinal disc, or bone. Previously used primarily by athletes who wished to heal from their injuries and pain as quickly as possible, the non-surgical treatment has proved highly successful in returning patients to a functional lifestyle. The procedure may reverse some of the arthritic process and help many people avoid a major surgery. Hear Dr. Lieber explain this promising pain treatment and ask questions about the ways in which these specialists help restore movement and mobility to their patients.
