For Lovers of Travel & Literature

Luxury is more than a rare bottle of wine and a gourmet meal—It is the opportunity to indulge in the journey of a lifetime.

Curious Oyster Seminars provides the rarest form of luxury: the opportunity to engage life’s most compelling questions within the context of a discussion of a great work of literature, philosophy, history, or art. And we do this in the most beautiful, historic, culturally-resonant places on Earth.

Anyone can read a book. But only Curious Oyster Seminars helps you read and discuss that book within the environment that inspired the author to write it.

Come with us and read Melville in the South Pacific, Cervantes in Spain, Virgil in Italy. Choose to holiday with us and return with far more than photos of stunning vistas.

A lifelong resident of Virginia, I grew up in the rural southeastern part of the state with a large extended family. I majored in Religious Studies and minored in Creative Writing-fiction at Virginia Commonwealth University. I now live in a rural area near Richmond where five year old beagle, Leah, and her new companion beagle, Sage, have room to run. I spend my free time with my favorite activity, gardening, participate in Midlothian Wordsmith’s Workshop, and read and write as often as possible. 




Falling Water: Stories & Poetry may give you a new perspective on life! It is a book to be savored, a unique gathering of stories and poetry that offers an insightful look at life in all of its highs and its lows, its joys and grief. 


The poems were compiled especially for this book from handwritten journals I’ve kept over the years. They balance the stories and help explore the realities of life we all face, from hope and happiness to the inevitable suffering that must accompany the good. 


These are tales of love, and loss, hope, strength, acceptance and the courage to carry on, with a greater understanding and appreciation for the good in life. There is sadness in these vignettes, but woven through them all is hope in the redeeming goodness of life. 


Wander into this book and you’re sure to find something you forgot, something you care about.

pls don’t cry friend, i’ll get you some tissues.

Hi, I'm an italian big lover of Kill your Darlings and I really want to know something about The "wheel of living and dying" depicted on The book that Lucien shows to Allen. Have u got a photo, or do u know something more about it?

I think I know what you’re asking? 

“The Wheel” is a metaphor for life. When Lucien Carr first meets Allen Ginsberg, he asks him if he’s read A Vision by W.B. Yeats. It’s all about life being round. ‘We’re stuck on this wheel. Living. And dying. An endless circle. Until. Someone breaks it. You came in here, you rupture the pattern. Bang: the whole world… gets wider.’ 

Simply put, it’s about how nothing changes, and how everything is (in the words of Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club) ‘a copy of a copy of a copy.’ 

Here’s the wheel that Yeats depicted, and that Lucien and Allen were talking about:

I hope this is what you were asking for! 

Chuck Palahniuk reading Fight Club for kids is horrifying

Chuck Palahniuk reading Fight Club for kids is horrifying

The author gets a bit cussy when narrating an illustrated version of the R-rated novel to children

The first rule of Fight Club is: You do not talk about Fight Club. You shout it. At children. That’s just one way Fight Clubauthor Chuck Palahniuk is keeping his ham-fisted legacy alive. The grisly novel about an insomniac who sets up an underground fighting club may never make the cut for…

Welcome to Limelight, Werner Stejskal

Today, I am interviewing children book writer Werner Stejskal, the author of Oliver and Jumpy.  Visit my blog, Newbies Unite, and read his interview on Limelight.

Born in Vienna, Austria, Werner is now living in the paradise of Perth, Australia with his wife, two married children and three grandchildren. He worked in the printing industry for many years and later for the United Nations in Vienna. Now retired, after a full and eventful life, he began to write children’s stories. He found illustrators through Odesk, narrated them himself for YouTube and finally took the next step by publishing ebooks. 




These illustrated cat stories are all about “Oliver and Jumpy”, who are best of friends and experience many adventures together. Oliver is an elegant black tomcat, who is full of himself. As a matter of fact he says: “I love myself!” quite often. Naughty, isn’t he? But his best friend Jumpy, a kangaroo lady, is aware that it is only a front! Oliver has a soft heart and will always want to help others. The great thing is Jumpy’s pouch, which Oliver loves to ride in! He calls her his kangaroo taxi! These little bedtime stories with their lovely illustrations are great for small kids. A parent can read the text and tell the child in his own words. These animal stories have sufficient text to keep early readers happy and provide some educational value. Depending on your device, there is pop-up text (at Amazon) or audio available. Several talented illustrators are essential to bring these children’s stories to you in quick succession. Love you all! Meow! Check out the Free INTRODUCTION TO THE SERIES to see how beautiful the illustrations are! Story 1: Molly the Mole - Oliver has an accident and makes a friend. Story 2: Saving Ducky - Jumpy saves a duckling from the eagle. Story 3: Jumpy’s Secret - Oliver gets a big surprise.
