Nita Hughes

The Cathar Legacy and Past Recall


Considerably before Dan Brown's DaVinci book, Nita Hughes had already delved into religious confrontations in the Middle Ages and came up with her excellent read, Past Recall. It is not only historically fascinating, but the intricate plot is as absorbing as any mystery buff could ask for. If you want to lose a night or two of sleep, start reading this book.~ Sandy Reed, author of A Tote of Travel Tales


"Past Recall is a compelling romantic mystery. Its magnetic narrative treats us to spiritual wisdom and historical fact. Nita Hughes' mystical passion informs, entertains and inspires readers, while providing us with an antidote for a problematic future." ~ Karen Horowitz, co-author of Witness to Illness


Safe Haven


"Exciting, captivating and fast-paced. I was swept away by its excellently crafted plot - one which exposes political intrigue at the highest levels and with the lowest scruples." ~ Gregory Orr, retired Diplomat, U.S. State Department

"I couldn't put it down. A story of intrigue set in the turbulent last days of Philippine President, Ferdinand Marcos, as seen through the eyes of an American banker. Nita Hughes' perspective on this period comes from personal experience and it shows. Entertaining from the first page to the last." ~ Mary Carryer, former Vice Chairman, Bank of Hawaii

"The world of international finance has many dimensions and many faces. Nita Hughes, a veteran in the field of international private banking, has crafted a superb novel of danger and intrigue, along with a touch of romance, in this compelling tale. A wonderful time capsule that transported me back to the incomparable charms, challenges and mysteries of the Philippines." ~ Dr. Rex Beach, former U.S. Executive Director, Asian Development Bank


Bryan Trent

"The story of the genius, beauty, and boldness of Hypatia forms the basis for this excellently written novel. Hypatia's death is high tragedy, not just because of the loss of this brilliant and forgotten woman, but for all the tragedy that follows - the world of Hellenized Egypt is so enchantingly painted that its fall delivers a knockout emotional blow. The very evident passion and talent of author Trent is that, like the many faces of Alexandria, he tackles several diverse points: Rational argument versus blind superstition, Academic elitism and punditry, and Reason and Emotion, in conflict and in concert." ~ Michael F. Manna at Amazon.com

Valerie Storey

Her clear and gentle style guides even the most reluctant writer around obstacles in the path to publication.

"Unleashed" is a fantastic book about the life of Tina Resch and Dr. William Roll.  Tina, now known as Christina Boyer, is serving a life sentence for the murder of her baby, a crime she did not commit. The actual murderer confessed and received a lighter sentence. After reading this book, you will come away amazed at the extraordinary events of Tina's life from the poltergeist manifestations that cannot be explained to the life sentence that cannot be explained. This is a must read for anyone interested in the paranormal." ~ Thomas Cooney at Amazon.com

Alexander Reed

"[Money and the Global Economy] is an amazing work. I found the manuscript fascinating ... a totally different approach to the economics of money on a domestic and international level." ~ John C. Getzelman, CEO of the Community Bank, Pasadena, California and ex-Chairman of Rainer National Bank, Seattle


"The Village Banker, in spite of its innocent title, is not the usual cozy cup of tea whodunnit. Part seductive travelogue through South America, part insider expose of international banking, and all excitement as its sophisticated protagonist sweeps the reader into an ominous world of international high finance. Ever wonder how politics, banking and large corporations dance a deadly tango of control across the globe? The Village Banker immerses the reader in an up close and deadly look at the intricate web of sophisticated schemes the world's rich and powerful use to expand their wealth and influence." ~ Amazon.com


"The novel makes me wish I could meet all these interesting people, or at least, that I could as sharply and compassionately remember and picture them and their pathos in such an easygoing story-telling style. Through the author's eyes, peoples' and countries' foibles and souls parade without condescendence or prejudice, revealing individual aspects of their distinct cultures." ~ Amazon.com
