Ecstasy...the "Love Drug". Even its name invokes thoughts of euphoria. Users claim it brings feelings of extreme joy, closeness, trust, exhilaration...emotions that blend well with the "dance-all-night" atmosphere of rave parties. Unfortunately, this drug-induced "excitement" often causes the user to drop his or her guard, trusting those who cannot always be trusted, giving rise to sexual promiscuity, even rape; ingesting other drugs, usually in dangerous or deadly combination; and oftentimes resulting in permanent psychological or physical injury or death. Over the years, I've found that the use of these dangerous drugs crosses all social divides, all ages, all honors no one. During my thirty-five year law enforcement career, on too many occasionshad the unpleasant duty of notifying friends, parents, even spouses, of the arrest, serious injury or death of their loved ones due to illicit drugs. It is a duty that I never wanted and, with each case, never forgot.

THE TRACKERS SERIES (by Robert G. Newman, Ph.D., Professor of Religion, The Univeristy of Charleston)

The number seven has always been special in literature and history. What if you discover you are the seventh son of a seventh son? What potential wisdom, force, or power have you inherited from your ancestors? How can you learn to express yourself as a tracker? And will you serve as a force for good or succumb to the selfish lure of evil? A growing, crowded, exciting society can be found almost anywhere in present-day America. This author produces human characters who live, love, and compete for power and success in the pluralistic State of Florida. Power politics, big-time sports, and mystical dimensions of extra-sensory time travel capture the reader's interest. Unexpected themes drawn from ancient value systems, from Hispanic culture, and from Native American intrigue permeate the more normal local, secular culture in Florida's capital city and its environs. Every reader will identify with the pathos of vicious kidnapping, of fortunes made and lost, and of intimate love so close and yet so far away. Mickey MorningGlory writes in a crisp, sharp, and brisk tempo. Her compelling characters capture your attention and the suspense of their intricate involvements, both virtuous and vicious, will keep you glued to the page until you arrive at the surprising conclusion. And then you will quickly ask for the next installment in this well-planned series which promises to continue to draw us into the amazing adventures of these exciting trackers.

It is my privilege to endorse BACKTRACK. I have read this fine novel and find the facts related to Muskogee Indian customs and rituals to be authentic. Even though this book is fiction, one can learn much about the Creek Indian ways and spirit.

There are three firsts for me in this Book Bit: my first eBook to review, my first book written by a dear friend from high school days, and the first novel I've read which mixes Florida Native America spiritualism, time shifting, and Christianity. The cool thing is that it works! This book, the first in a planned 8-book series, is the story of Noah Lightfoot. He is the younger brother of Dane Lightfoot, another Tracker, who died in a house fire when Noah was 16. He had called for his "beacon" to allow him to return home, but it was not there, so Dane, the seventh son, died horribly. Now, two years later (in 1992), Noah is part of the team of psychic Trackers. The team artist is Raven Looking Bird, a stunningly-beautiful woman. The other members are Graham Skysong and Lee Thistleseed, Noah's mentor. There is another, now an adversary, known as the "Outlaw" who has been time shifting in order to manipulate history to benefit self and destroy rivals. A young woman named Maria Ramirez has a vivid dream, seeing the mysterious "Silver Eyes" planning to kill Noah. She plans to talk to Noah the next morning, but before that time, everything changes. Her father is no longer Governor, (indeed, he is no longer alive) and her family is running a Mexican restaurant. What's worse, Maria and her mother have no idea the past has changed. Noah plans to change things back, if he can, despite the fact that if he does, there will be a cost.

Mickey MorningGlory has become one of my favorite authors. Her stories carries the reader on a journey through the lives of four gifted Native American individuals. These individuals use their special abilities to time travel and help the police solve crimes, as well as, adds in a little romance. Don't try to guess the outcome of the story because the ending can change with each trip. The author engages the reader from the start of the.story and keeps you engaged to the very end. Love it. Couldn't put it down.

MIST: A very original and compelling story (Review by E.J. Moore)

Once again, Mickey MorningGlory has penned a solid tale, and the criminal focus of Mist is one that is both fresh and frightening. In Mist, much more is revealed about the parasensory Trackers introduced in her first book of the series (Backtrack: The Scout's Story) as they investigate several puzzling deaths (which, in fact, are murders). One of the methods paramount in solving the case is clairalience, a parasensory talent with which I was not familiar before I read this book. I was inspired to do a bit of Internet research on the topic, and I discovered some fascinating information. As with the first book, Mist is written in present tense and this choice of style gives immediacy and urgency to the story. However, the inclusion of authentic Seminole traditions coupled with the strong family ties of the main characters lends a gentleness to the tale which tempers the fearful aspects of the story. I recommend reading this series in the order of publication because there are many twists and turns, and reading the books out of order will rob the reader of some delightful surprises.

Backtrack: A Fresh and Compelling Story (Review by E.J. Moore)

It is seldom that a fresh storyline enters the market yet Mickey MorningGlory has managed to pen one. In this, her debut novel of the Backtrack series, the reader follows a team of Native American clairvoyant "trackers," each of whom possess a unique supernatural skill which enables them to solve both crimes and personal mysteries. MorningGlory's characters jump off the page and there are more than a few unanticipated twists and turns to the story. I'm not ashamed to admit that I had chill bumps more than once during my reading of this novel. I also feel that the Tracker storyline would make a fresh and compelling television series, and the novel reads as such. The main character is Noah Lightfoot, a tracker who uses a form of astral projection or remote viewing to visit various locations, and the other members of the Tracker team have equally impressive and distinct clairvoyant talents. MorningGlory also weaves accurate and fascinating historical information about Creek Americans throughout the novel, and she includes an Appendix of language translations for both the Muskogee Creek and Spanish languages. Also, the novel earned the approval of Tuskie Mahaya Haco, the Principal Chief of the Florida Tribe of Eastern Creek Indians, Apalachicola Band of Creeks. This novel reminds me of J.K. Rowling and her Harry Potter series in the aspect of weaving a unique storyline that will be enjoyed by both children and adults. I'm looking forward to all the ensuing volumes of this series, and I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy historical, supernatural, and thoroughly original fiction. Kudos to Mickey MorningGlory for writing an extremely interesting and entertaining novel.
