A new novel of mine, The Ash Tree, has been published by West of West Books in conjunction with the April 24, 2015 centenary of the Armenian genocide; it recounts the lives of an Armenian-American family and the sweep of their history in the twentieth century - particularly from the points of view of two women in the family as it builds a new life in California.
There are three other novels of mine, One is Pathological States, about a physician's family in L.A. in 1962, which is as yet unpublished.. Another is Hungry Generations, about a young composer's friendship in L.A. with the family of a virtuoso pianist, published on demand by iUniverse. A Burnt Offering - a fable (a rewriting of Acts of Terror and Contrition - a nuclear fable - is my political novella (with eight stories) about Israel and its reactions to the possibility of a war with Iran (with the fear that it will be a nuclear war).
From a review of "Acts" from Createspace, before it was updated and rewritten, on Amazon.com:
"At times the reader races ahead to find out the fate of the cast of characters and the fate of nations. At others the reader is stopped mid-page to consider the paradoxes of the nuclear world and the world of realpolitik. This is an important, timely book that deserves a wide audience."
For a fuller description of them, look for the relevant blog posts below or click on one of the Amazon.com links. KINDLE editions of these novels are also available.

Political cartoons: US Separation of children from immigrant parents - plus Trump-Putin relationship

Here is Jeanette' latest Arax political cartoon - about the Trump government's separation of children from their immigrant parents at the southern U.S. border. J's own statement:  Of all the egregious policies of the Trump administration, nothing has quite saddened me as much as children being separated from parents at our southern border.  From my perspective as a child of immigrants to America who fled the genocide in Turkey, as the mother of 3, and the grandmother of 4, this lack of humanity is truly un-American and will have effects on these children and their families that will be extremely harmful in the future to all of us.

And here are three more cartoons - one about the immigration issue and two about the Trump-Putin relationship:
