Phantom is #FREE on Amazon

 Phantom, Dark Musicals Book 1 is currently FREE on Amazon for a limited time. See how Rebecca and Justyn's story began, and catch up on the whole series before the newest book hits virtual shelves in later this year.

The "Phantom" was a musical phenomenon that Rebecca had always found enchanting. She had no idea that her life was about to mirror the play that was her obsession. When her high school drama club chooses "Phantom" as their annual production, Rebecca finds herself in the middle of an unlikely love triangle and the target of a sadistic stalker who uses the lines from the play as their calling card. Rebecca lands the lead role of Christine, the opera diva, and like her character, she is torn between her two co-stars-Tom the surfer and basketball star who plays the lovable hero, and Justyn, the strangely appealing Goth who is more than realistic in the role of the tortured artist. Almost immediately after casting, strange things start to happen both on and off the stage. Curtains fall. Mirrors are shattered. People are hurt in true phantom style. They all seem like accidents until Rebecca receives notes and phone calls that hint at something more sinister. Is Justyn bringing to life the twisted character of the phantom? Or in real life are the roles of the hero and the villain reversed? Rebecca doesn't know who to trust, but she knows she's running out of time as she gets closer and closer to opening night. Only when the mask is stripped away, will the twenty-first century phantom finally be revealed.

Make sure to check out the whole series, especially the newest additions to the stage:

Rebecca Hope-Patko and her husband, Lord Justyn, are living their dream. After a successful stint on Broadway, the super couple are heading down under for a special showing of Phantom Returns, where their son Erik will join them for his professional debut.

As soon as their plane touches down, they discover that a serial killer is stalking Melbourne. At the theater, a strange series of accidents leaves Rebecca fearing for the safety of her family. Rebecca struggles to unravel the mystery while coping with insecurities about her career which cause tension between her and Justyn.

It’s clear a very real Phantom is lurking among them, but Rebecca is no kid anymore. She’s tired of the villain getting the upper hand. This time, Rebecca is setting the trap. This opera diva will put her life and her marriage on the line to shatter the illusions surrounding Queen’s Theater, and stop the serial killer before they can strike again.

After the birth of their daughter, Rebecca Hope-Patko and her husband Lord Justyn return to their home state of New Jersey to open their dinner theater. For their first season, Justyn tries his hand at directing while Rebecca stars in their small stage adaption of Ghost Bride. Rebecca has also embraced a second role—taking a stand against domestic violence by joining the Underground Railroad, a covert organization that shuttles battered women to safety.

At first, both operations run smoothly, but before long it’s clear the secret agents’ identities have been compromised. Rebecca is stalked and terrorized, and even the theater is under attack. Faced with deception at every turn, Rebecca is afraid to trust anyone and has reason to fear this battle may leave her a widow instead of a bride. Can this diva unravel the mystery of the Ange du Palais Theater before someone she loves winds up in their grave?

Tom Rittenhouse is in over his head. After only one season, his best friend Lord Justyn is leaving him to run their dinner theater alone. With seven days to perfect their production of Franken-freak, Tom braves a Nor’easter on his birthday to lead their first dress rehearsal. To add to his stress, the set is plagued by strange accidents and mysterious messages. When an employee vanishes, Tom fears one of his feuding castmates may be out for blood. With danger, ghosts, and nylon stockings around every corner, this is certain to be a birthday Tom will never forget.

Rebecca Hope-Patko and her husband Lord Justyn are flying to England to film their first movie, a musical version of The Woman in White. They’re excited to work with an A-list cast, but their costars are harboring some scandalous secrets they’d go to any lengths to conceal. Even Justyn is haunted by the past, and Rebecca fears for his sanity when he starts seeing a mysterious woman in white around every corner. Their director makes light of the pranks on the set, but after a deadly accident, Rebecca realizes if their dark secrets aren’t revealed, the entire cast could burn for their sins.

Downing of a Flag DVD

 Downing of a Flag is a documentary film that focuses on the Confederate Battle flag and its impact on the people, politics, and perceptions of South Carolina and beyond.

Through firsthand interviews featuring various perspectives and a wealth of historical footage, Downing of a Flag traces the symbol's controversial relationship with the Palmetto State, exploring its true meaning and how an unspeakable tragedy served as the catalyst for its long-debated removal. The story begins with the end of the Civil War and chronicles the flag's more than 150-year journey from the blood-soaked battlefields of Virginia to its use in American popular culture in the 1970s and 1980s, to its final removal from the South Carolina State House grounds in July 2015. Preceded by the killing of nine Black parishioners at Charleston's historic Mother Emanuel AME Church by a white supremacist, the Confederate Battle flag's furling and the days and actions that led to that event could represent the final shots and battles of the American Civil War. Despite representing an end to a significant chapter in United States history, Downing of a Flag shows that the events of 2015 did not complete the story. Instead, we continue to see the flag used as a symbol, and as a result, it continues to haunt American democracy.

My Thoughts

Downing of a Flag is a documentary that teaches the history behind the confederate flag. The DVD takes you through 150 years of history. It starts out during the Civil War when it was seen on the battlefield and follows the flag through the different decades. Finally, we learn how the flag was used, ending in 2015 when white supremists carried the flag  during a brutal attack, leading to it being removed from the state house in South Carolina.

The confederate flag is still used as a symbol today  and its a constant reminder of the most trying times in America. This documentary is thought-provoking and informative. If you want to grab a copy for yourself, you can find it on or online at Amazon.

Finding Your Roots, Season 7 DVD

Renowned scholar Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. returns for an all-new season of Finding Your Roots. Over the course of ten episodes, Gates uses genealogical detective work and cutting-edge DNA analysis to guide twenty influential guests through the branches of their family trees, traveling hundreds of years into the past to discover people and places long forgotten. From coastal towns in Italy to rural villages in Russia to the slave plantations of the antebellum South, the surprising stories of extraordinary ancestors are brought back to life from the annals of history.

As the pages turn in each guest’s book of life, emotional revelations give way to complex questions about individual and collective identity. Through Gates’ discerning touch, Finding Your Roots reveals what every family history shares—love, hardship, and triumph—human experiences that transcend borders and merge to form an American root system fortified by its diversity.

The season features actors Glenn Close, John Lithgow, Jane Lynch, Christopher Meloni, and Tony Shalhoub; Broadway stars Audra McDonald and Mandy Patinkin; filmmakers Kasi Lemmons and John Waters; talk show host and author Andy Cohen; journalists Gretchen Carlson, Maria Hinojosa, Don Lemon, and Nina Totenberg; comedians Lewis Black, Jim Gaffigan, and Roy Wood, Jr.; and musicians Clint Black, Rosanne Cash, and Pharrell Williams.

My Thoughts

There are a lot of things that genetic testing can tell you. You can learn about your true paternity, whether or not you carry a gene for certain health conditions, whether or not your siblings are really your siblings, and even about your possible ancestry. In Finding Your Roots, we can to explore the wonders of DNA with some of our favorite celebrities. This season includes three informative episodes:

1-To the Manor Born - Henry Louis Gates, Jr learned he's related to a famous actor and director. He also  explored the roots of Quaker PA and British lineage.

2- Against All Odds - A few celebrities learn about their Jewish ancestry.

3- No Irish Need Apply - My favorite episode featuring Jane Lynch from Glee as she explores her Irish ancestry.

This series is filled with tons of great information on the science of DNA and what we can learn from it. If you want to get a better understanding of where you come from, this is a great place to start. If you'd like to grab a copy of this awesome DVD for yourself, you can find it in stores nationwide or online at or Amazon.

After years of facing super-villains, monsters, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, one of the world’s greatest super heroes (Tyler Hoechlin) and comic books’ most famous journalist (Elizabeth Tulloch) come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents!

My Thoughts

Lois and Superman is a new DC series centering around Clark and Lois when they are older and married with two unruly boys who may or may not inherit their father's abilities. One of my favorite parts of the show is there is more focus on Lois. She's more than just a pawn to be used by villains to use as bait and really helps by using her brain while Superman uses the brawn. Together they set out to save the world. This first season includes fifteen thrilling episodes: 

  1. Pilot
  2. Heritage
  3. The Perks of Not Being a Wallflower
  4. Haywire
  5. The Best of Smallville
  6. Broken Trust
  7. Man of Steel
  8. Holding the Wrench

  11. A Brief Reminiscence In-Between Cataclysmic Events
  12. Through the Valley of Death
  13. Fail Safe
  14. The Eradicator
  15. Last Sons of Krypton

In addition to the main episodes, the Lois and Clark Blu-Ray set also includes some great special features. Superman and Lois is such a fun series and a great new take on classic characters. It offers all the action you expect from DC, but there is plenty of humor and passion in the mix as well. If you love superheroes you are sure to enjoy this series. I can't wait to see what happens in season twp. If you want to grab a copy for yourself, you can find it in stores nationwide or online at Amazon.
