In 2012, Beck Dorey-Stein is working five part-time jobs and just scraping by when a posting on Craigslist lands her, improbably, in the Oval Office as one of Barack Obamas stenographers. The ultimate D.C. outsider, she joins the elite team who accompany the president wherever he goes, recorder and mic in hand. On whirlwind trips across time zones, Beck forges friendships with a dynamic group of fellow travelersyoung men and women who, like her, leave their real lives behind to hop aboard Air Force One in service of the president.
As she learns to navigate White House protocols and more than once runs afoul of the hierarchy, Beck becomes romantically entangled with a consummate D.C. insider, and suddenly the political becomes all too personal.
Against a backdrop of glamour, drama, and intrigue, this is the story of a young woman learning what truly matters, and, in the process, discovering her voice.
Praise for From the Corner of the Oval
Who knew the West Wing could be so sexy? Beck Dorey-Steins unparalleled access is obvious on every page, along with her knife-sharp humor. I tore through the entire book on a four-hour flight and loved reading all about the brilliant yet hard-partying people who once surrounded the leader of the free world. Lots of books claim to give real insider glimpses, but this one actually delivers.Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada

Addictively readable . . . Dorey-Steins spunk and her sparkling, crackling prose had me cheering for her through each adventure. . . . She never loses her starry-eyed optimism, her pinch-me wonderment, her Working Girl pluck.Paul Begala, The New York Times Book Review (Editors Choice)
Arcane (The Arinthian Line Book 1)
A coming of age young adult saga readers are comparing to Harry Potter, Wheel of Time, and Eragon. A tale of magic, ambition, betrayal . . . and compassion.
Fourteen-year-old Augum grew up with bullies instead of friends. In a kingdom where superstition trumped the written word, he fought loneliness by reading books and doing hard labor. It was a typical life for a gutter-born orphan.
An inferno changes everything. And Augum, having lost it all, begins again. He finds a mentor and even befriends Bridget and Leera, two passionate and quirky girls willing to give him a chance. Together they dream of becoming warlocks.
But Augum's mentor possesses an ancient and highly sought-after artifact. When an ambitious tyrant suddenly turns up demanding it, Augum resists--and discovers something about himself that changes the course of history. As the tyrant plunges them into a harrowing ordeal, Augum will have to use his newly-learned spells to try to save the only thing he has left . . . a friendship forged in fire.
Delve into the magical world of The Arinthian Line and see why fans describe Augum, Bridget and Leera as "beloved characters."
"This story started strong, stayed strong and ended leaving me wanting more immediately (without a cliffhanger ending)." --Nerd Girl Magazine
"An epic journey of survival and self discovery." --A. Hatfield, Amazon reviewer
"If you loved Harry Potter, Arcane has the same thrill and page-turning fun." --Amazon reviewer
"This is one of the best-written stories that I have read in some time. It is a unique, well-crafted, character driven story that grabs you via curiosity at the beginning and invests you in the characters and world within the first few pages. Even when the world is first opened to you, the author works to whet your appetite for more. The world is rich and expansive while not being overwhelming. The attention to detail is commendable and enjoyable. The book drags you in and keeps the pages turning all the way through to the end. I have been recommending this to everyone I've know." --Matthew, Amazon reviewer
"Where the author gets you hooked is that nothing seems forced, the plot rolls out naturally, and the magic and sorcery have merit and a quality based on believability." --Vancouver Writer
"From the fields of a small town to epic adventures that span a kingdom, The Arinthian Line series is a worthy successor to books where our humble hero overcomes all odds to save the day. Like the Lord of the Rings and the Shannara Chronicles before it, The Arinthian Line is a tale that cleaves to the core of our love of fantasy, while feeling entirely fresh and new." --Nebula, Theodore Sturgeon Memorial, and StorySouth Million Writers Award nominee Jake Kerr
"The story started with a familiar feel to it, reminding me a bit of the Harry Potter books, but it quickly proved itself to be an addictive read quite capable of standing on its own. It is a great escape from the day to day which is what I look for when choosing a book to take a mental vacation with." --T. Rohring, Amazon reviewer

To Shake the Sleeping Self: A Journey from Oregon to Patagonia, and a Quest for a Life with No Regret
New York Times bestseller Thrilling, tender, utterly absorbing . . . Every chapter shimmered with truth. Cheryl Strayed
From travel writer Jedidiah Jenkins comes a long-awaited memoir of adventure, struggle, and lessons learned while bicycling the 14,000 miles from Oregon to Patagonia.
On the eve of turning thirty, terrified of being funneled into a life he didn't choose, Jedidiah Jenkins quit his dream job and spent the next sixteen months cycling from Oregon to Patagonia. He chronicled the trip on Instagram, where his photos and profound reflections on life soon attracted hundreds of thousands of followers and got him featured by National Geographic and The Paris Review.
In this unflinchingly honest memoir, Jed narrates the adventure that started it all: the people and places he encountered on his way to the bottom of the world, and the internal journey that prompted it. As he traverses cities, mountains, and inner boundaries, Jenkins grapples with the questions of what it means to be an adult, his struggle to reconcile his sexual identity with his conservative Christian upbringing, and his belief in travel as a way to "wake us up" to life back home.
A soul-stirring read for the wanderer in each of us, To Shake the Sleeping Self is an unforgettable reflection on adventure, identity, and a life lived without regret.
