Montoya's writing is impassioned, witty and insightful and we can't help but come away knowing that we and our family history are part of the Night too. The play disappoints, however, when it allows leftist politics a soapbox.

SCREAM QUEENS has always been a horror satire, playing off the genre's obvious tropes and pitfalls. Some episodes even have blatant references to classic horror films (the Shining, Silence of the Lambs, and Psycho the most obvious). Tonight, SCREAM QUEENS is at its sharpest, honing on three ghost stories that emphasize the show's strengths.

By land, sea, and air, women have traveled the globe, blazing a trail of exploration, discovery and empowerment. This illustrated guide of explorers tells the incredible stories of the women who went against all odds to see the world and go beyond the limits set by their times. The second title in Lisa Graves' Women in History series, "Trail Blazers" is an indisputable resource for today's children telling stories not only of well known female explorers like Amelia Earhart and Sacagawea but also of some of the lesser known influential women from the past. Learn about Nellie Bly, a groundbreaking investigative journalist who defied social norms and traveled the world in 72 days. Read about Sophie Blanchard, an aeronaut who crossed the Alps in her beautifully painted balloon. The journey began when Lisa Graves took her love of history and art and created the successful blog, History Witch. 'It's hard to believe that what started out with a map of Mary Queen of Scots life has led to so many wonderful opportunities. I feel extremely lucky to be able to share the stories of these extraordinary women,' says the author. Lisa grew up in Norfolk, MA, went to Bishop Feehan High School in Attleboro, MA and then on to San Diego Advertising Arts School. She has been a professional illustrator for over 15 years developing books, gift products, and creating installation art for corporate clients. Lisa is the author of the children's book History's Witches. Available June 9, 2014 ISBN-13: 978-1623955793 ISBN-10: 1623955793

Just Released! Author Frederick Fichman has just uploaded two new Book Trailer videos to YouTube. The first video has been placed on YouTube on author Fichman's YouTube Channel in conjunction with the recent publication of his new book, 'Sky's Journal: Life and Adventures as told by an Arizona Mini Poodle.' The second video is now on YouTube to promote the entire 29-book library of books for sale by author Fichman on Amazon Kindle. Author Frederick Fichman began his publishing efforts on July 21, 2008 with his first novel, 'SETI.' 'SETI,' the acronym for Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, was originally print published by Penguin USA imprint ROC in the United States and Canada and in the U.K. and Australia by Headline Press in London. 'SETI' was book one in a three-book series. All three books have been combined recently by Mr. Fichman in 'The SETI Anthology' which is also now available and recently published on Amazon Kindle. The two new videos are both Book Trailers which helps to market not only the newest non-fiction release of 'Sky's Journal' but also the entire library of 29 books written by Author Frederick Fichman. His prolific output continues with his work on two manuscripts that are presently 'In Work.' His next fiction novel is titled 'The Feather.' It is fantasy novel about the historic Lewis and Clark Expedition, 1806-1806. This new novel will be a unique look at that historic journey of the Corps of Discovery from St. Louis, Missouri to Fort Clatsop near present day Astoria, Oregon. Deep and thorough research on the subject matter will give the reader a feeling that they are actually with the 50-plus men and one woman, Sacagawea, as they braved the elements and some hostile tribes of Native Americans as they set forth into the uncharted wilderness that was purchased by President Thomas Jefferson for the United States. In 1803 The Louisiana Purchase added over 800 million acres to the territory of the young United States and doubled the size of the country at that time.

AUSTIN, Texas, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ Although they probably studied them in school, most Americans don't remember that much about Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, the men President Thomas Jefferson dispatched in 1804 to explore the Northwest lands the U.S. acquired through the Louisiana Purchase. In addition, few Americans can recall the actual role Sacagawea, the only female member of the expedition, played in this famous 16-month trek that led the group from St. Louis, Missouri, west to the Pacific Ocean.
