It was the worst two-week killing spree in Ohio’s history.
On the night of July 21, 1948, Robert Daniels and John West entered John and Nolena Niebel’s house with loaded guns.
They forced the family including the Niebel’s 21-year-old daughter, Phyllis, into their car and drove them to a cornfield just off Fleming Falls Road in Mansfield.
The two men instructed the Niebels to remove all of their clothing, and then Robert Daniels shot each of them in the head.
The brutal murders caught national attention in the media, but the killing spree didn’t stop there. Three more innocent people would lose their lives at the hands of Daniels and West in the coming week.
Scott Fields tirelessly researched the killings, the capture, and trial of Daniels and even interviewed a surviving member of the Niebel family to weave this tragic story into a must-read novel bringing the reader back to those dark days in the summer of 1948.
What led to these brutal killings, and why was the Niebel family singled-out to be savagely murdered? It has been more than sixty years since the tragedy, and, yet, this question still remains unanswered. The killing spree is not only remembered to this day but is an important and dark part of Mansfield lore.

Who by Fire breaks new literary ground.
Mary L. Tabor has written a complex tale of love, betrayal, discovery and the search for self.
The form of the novel itself breaks ground. A male narrator tells the story he does not actually know but discovers through memory, through piecing the puzzles of his marriage, through his wife’s goodness and her betrayal. He confronts paradox with music, science and a conflagration he witnessed in his native Iowa. Underlying his search is the quest for heroism and the search for his own father.
Quite simply, Who by Fire is like nothing else you have read and has earned its place among books that matter.

When Mary L. Tabor’s husband of 21 years announced, “I need to live alone,” she cratered and turned to the only comfort she had left: her writing.
What resulted was (Re)MAKING LOVE: a sex after sixty story, a fresh, witty, funny and brutally honest memoir of everything she felt and did during her long journey back to happiness.
This deeply personal account of her saga takes the reader from Washington, DC to Missouri to Australia through the good, the bad and the foolish from Internet dating to outlandish flirting and eventually to Paris where an unexpected visitor changed the author’s life forever.
Her story offers hope and joy told with passion and brilliance that is highly refreshing with the single and most prominent message—it is never too late to find love—and oneself even after age sixty and beyond.

When she was 17, there wasn’t a man alive she would let get near her, and when she was 18, there wasn’t a man she would keep away.

She stood five feet seven inches tall, weighed one hundred twenty pounds, her green eyes sparkled like brilliant cut emeralds, her inviting full lips always ruby red and moist.
Women universally hated her, men continued to hold doors for her long after she passed by – just to watch her walk away. To imply that Jessie exuded sex would be an understatement, akin to inferring that water was wet.
Ninety-nine point nine percent of the men in Steam Corners wanted her, but she only wanted one man, Spencer Deacon. He was everything that she was not, even-tempered, amicable, well respected and kind. The one thing that Spencer didn’t want was Jessie, and his firm and undeniable rejections infuriated her.
What followed was a series of sordid events involving murder, deceit, betrayal and the conviction of an innocent man.

It has been two years since the death of his wife, and Frank Watson still struggles with the loss. Every morning, he meets with his friends at the local diner to talk and to exchange gossip, but inevitably must return to his farm that remains undisturbed since his wife’s death.

Then, Pepper Ledley breezed into his life and a steamy romance begins. She was the new waitress in town nearly half his age and offered Frank something he had never before considered a new beginning. However, it somehow didn’t seem right to Frank. How could he have these feelings when he still loved Ida?
As he struggles with his new feelings and the memory of his beloved wife, Frank faces the biggest crisis of his life. A large foreign corporation needs five hundred acres of land to build an egg factory and Frank alienates himself from the rest of the town when he, steadfastly, refuses to sell.
What transpires is a web of deceit, manipulation, and murder.

Haunted by a murder he committed in the shadow of the State Capitol and depressed by the death of his best friend, Theodore O’Hara Clark, a prominent political columnist, abandons his career and runs, hoping to shake his demons and shred his depression.

He is succeeding until the unexpected death of his mentor forces him back to the scene of the crime. When he arrives he finds she has left him a fortune. But she has also set him the task of protecting her empire.

To do that, he’ll have to be something he doesn’t know how to be and doesn’t want to be. And confront the demons he ran from. And, in the process, face up to a long ago love.

A town and a newspaper figure prominently in this story. The action ranges from moonlit meadows in the Bluegrass of Kentucky to fog shrouded San Francisco Bay, from the canyons of Manhattan to the mountains of Appalachia and the snake handling cults that still thrive there.

“The characters are richly drawn. The action runs at a riveting pace. What happened When THEO Came Home is a helluva read and a fine, fine story.” –Ian Kellogg

When THEO Came Home is the concluding novel in the THEO Trilogy. The other books in the series are: THEO’s Story and THEO & The Mouthful of Ashes.

A prominent widow is found dead at the foot of the cellar stairs in the family home on a farm in the lush Bluegrass section of Kentucky. Her head has been bashed in by an old flatiron found near the body and her mouth stuffed full of ashes.

The county is shocked – horrified at the brutality of the murder and mystified at the use of the ashes. Theo Clark, a young Marine veteran of the Korean War, working part time at the local newspaper while finishing up his interrupted college career, is assigned to cover the story because no experienced reporters are around when the tip comes in.

A band of wandering Gypsies are suspected, as is another young Marine veteran of Korea with drug and alcohol problems. Even the victim’s married daughter, her only child, is a suspect. Theo has never covered a murder but if he can unravel this mystery it can be his ticket to the start of an exceptional career.

On the surface a mystery tale, Theo & The Mouthful of Ashes is also an exploration of the social and political dynamics at play in an important small town in the mid-1950s and of the draw home-place has on individuals. It is the prequel to Theo’s Story and carries Theo from his return from the war to the beginning of his career.

If you live in Key West, this book should be on your coffee table. If you are coming to Key West, this book should be a carry-on companion or an ebook download. 26 Days in Key West, My Alphaboozical Adventure offers a fun filled look at Key West history and dining while doubling as a drinking guide, with a unique twist. Follow the alphabet guy around Key West on his quest to drink a different drink, in alpha order, at a different location every day for 26 days. Or plan a quest of your own, using his guide as your roadmap. It all started with a New Year’s resolution… “On January 10th of 2010, I was reading a newspaper article about New Year’s resolutions. The main point of the article was that if you were reading the article on January 10th, you had most likely broken any resolutions you had set for yourself. I concurred with the premise as I had already skipped three days of exercise and had downed close to a half gallon of ice cream. I’m not sure why (maybe it was a lack of oxygen caused by too little exercise or perhaps some kind of sugar overload caused by too much ice cream), but for some unknown reason, an unusual New Year’s resolution popped into my head as I read the newspaper. I vowed that I would drink my way through the alphabet.” – J.R. Mathews

Now more plausible than ever with the recent security breaches at Yahoo, Blue Cross Blue Shield and the US Office of Personal Management

When digital terrorists take over the US power grid and the cell phone network, they give the government an ultimatum – bomb the borders of Afghanistan with nuclear weapons to end Al-Quada or they will start downing commercial airliners. Only security expert Dan Riker can stop them, but they have his family. Will Dan save his family or will millions die?”

The family elements in the story – the real struggles with marriage, raising a family, making a living, and just trying to enjoy life – have broadened the book’s appeal to a wider audience, primarily women who are not into technology.”
