Jon Luke Dowgin
Christopher Jon Luke Dowgin
is usually called, Chris. He lives in Salem. In fact
if you ever ventured into Salem you probably seen him
wearing a 12 foot long scarf walking through town drinking
a quart of milk and eating a dark Cadbury bar. If you
want to help support his habit, he always is willing
to accept a Cadbury bar and some milk from you. Sometimes
he answers to “Viking Chris”, “The Norseman”, and even
Fritter by one large Indian. At one local music festival
it was said that if you have been in Salem for 15 minutes
and have not met Chris something is wrong. So if you
ever see him in Salem or traveling about, stop and say
hi... He might just draw you a picture in your book.

grew up in a family of artists. Works in progress in
all the contemporary arts, musical, written and performance
art were strewn about her childhood home. This inspired
her to develop her creativity and experiment with mediums
When she received her first big 64-color box of Crayolas,
Sheila could sit for hours delighted to line up the
crayons in endless color combinations. Now she works
mostly in acrylic paints, watercolors, and pencil &
ink; but the desire to combine beautiful, bright, saturated
color is still a driving force in her art. Her work
has appeared in many shows and galleries in the North
Shore area of Boston, earning numerous awards and grants.
Plus she is a member of the Society of Children's Book
Writers and Illustrators.
She has two illustrated books for sale and we are expecting
a lot more from this great talent in the future.
Great Books and Art!
"Core Belief" is there is no one solution
that's going to solve all of our problems. Rather, progress
will be many smaller steps forward, such as more local
farming, more walking paths or learning skills. My primary objective is to contribute to the well-being of as many people as I can. From 1995 to the summer of 2015 I did that mostly through teaching, but now I do so mostly through writing useful books. In the past I emphasized more serious writing, although now the emphasis is on language learning books and fiction. Below tells you the story behind the fruits of my labor that I have put here for you.

was the prosecuting Judge Hathorne and one of the accused
women in 1692 he had hanged.... Well that is life in
Salem and you will enjoy this spitfires classic poetry
and photographs about the town she loves.
favorite spot is a seat by a window. If it is a barstool
and the street is active, so much the better. Behind
the counter in a store looking through an open door
works just as well. So does a bedroom overlooking a
park. A bus or plane will also do, as long as the seat
or scene is moving. They are all metaphors for a curious,
Will started writing
poetry as a boy after discovering his father’s high
school text of One Hundred Narrative Poems. In his early
teens an older cousin sent him a copy of The
Beat Generation and the Angry Young
Men. That same year he stumbled on a facing
page bilingual edition of Baudelaire
which he thought would help with his French studies.
These random events pointed the way to a whole new world.
He's been gone ever since. Open up to any page, and

social activist who is remembered for his inability
to pass a sandwich cookie without eating the cream filling
while protesting in some rally for the labor unions.
He was the Ivy League teacher for the cost of city college
tuition. He believed everyone deserved the best opportunity
for the best education available.
Peter R. Senn describes in his better world book
the core beliefs which shaped the European Union. In
the process he casts a new light on the past, present,
and future of Europe. His book is a must-read for students,
scholars and all who are concerned with International
Affairs in a fun style that captivates the reader in
much the same way that the author did in Sophie's
World. Just because he stuffed cotton in his
ears at a Beatles concert, does not mean he disagrees
with everything from Europe. Just a lot. We at Salem
House Press have the privilege to publish his latest
of many books.
Nick is a little Batty, or at the very least batty for
bats! Such a loveable character who paints with yesterday
morning's coffee and colored pencils. Rendering wonderful
images from the past with a new face. His versions of
classic Victorian horror characters all have animal
faces. Mostly bat faces, but others like Sweeney Toad
hop up from time to time. From Frakentoad to Madame
Bathory Nick has created a grand menagerie.
