Mystery

D O P E — Book Two In The Colin Marsh Trilogy

In the summer of 2016, many addicts are dying in the Washington, D.C. area. Their obituaries advertise a major change in the addiction community.

They die quietly, as most addicts do. Among them are a right-wing radio personality, a local politician who overdosed in a hotel suite with a 14-year-old prostitute, and Willie B., a celebrated local street musician. There is no obvious connection among these deaths.

Colin Marsh, ex-reporter, has attended more funerals than he can count, but the loss of Willie B. nags at him. Why so many addict deaths? Why Willie B. who was a smart user? Having worked together to defeat a major drug dealer in Thirst, Colin Marsh and Mamadou Dioh team up again in Dope to combat an even greater threat—a plot to distribute poisoned drugs in the Washington area targeting untold thousands of users. 


Sagnier builds characters as solid, gritty, and as broken as a D.C. street, with prose that lights up like monuments on a starry night.

Readers looking for a face-paced crime novel will find nine faster than this one,  For us, there is no covnetiuonal mystery to solve; the crimes are committed in full view.  What kept me turning the pages was the familiar fallibility of the characters, good guys and bad, that prevented any of the action from becoming predictable.

Early Childhood Development

Embracing Autism In Preschool — Updated Second Edition

Successful Strategies For General Education Teachers


by Karen Roberts, M.Ed.

Foreword by Eva Thorp, Ph.D.


"Embracing Autism in Preschool is a valuable book for preschool teachers, special educators, speech/language clinicians and parents.  It underscores social interaction as the foundation for the development and use of language in natural settings.  These interactions are also crucial for further development of socialization, which is such a challenge for children on the autism spectrum.  This book's practicality and resources make it possible to truly feel, in Karen's words, that "it is a privilege to have a child with autism in your class."

Let's Talk About Early Childhood Social-Emotional Development

Karen Griffin Roberts, M.Ed.

Ana Gamarra Hoover, M.Ed. 

Foreword by Judith G. Chapman, Ph.D.


“Roberts and Hoover provide educators and parents with much needed guidelines on crucial aspects of social-emotional development, among them: the difference between children misbehaving and making a mistake; the skills needed to make friends and form relationships with others; the development of social and emotional skills for children at various ages, and the red flags seen for more challenging behavior. It also encourages the need for school staff and parents to forge a partnership to help students with more challenging behaviors learn effective ways of dealing with their emotions on a day to day basis.”
