DeForest Kelley: A Harvest of Memories
Now garnering 5-star reviews at on-line bookstores everywhere.
The actor best-remembered as a science fiction icon is recaptured in word and deed in this affectionate and affecting personal memoir. The author writes, "We need honorable role models who do not disappoint once the camera lens turns away. De was my friend, but he was also my hero - one of very few heroes whose durability was sorely tested, yet found to be utterly reliable. I wrote this book to show how deeply De influenced my life - and to remind you, his fans and friends, how seamlessly and comfortably he fit into yours. For the millions of fans who did not have the chance to meet De up close and personal, this is your gateway...Enter, heartstrings attached!"
If you know DeForest Kelley solely through his 50-year acting career in motion pictures and television, this book will become a treasured keepsake. For true fans of all ages.
Floating Around Hollywood & Other Totally-True Tales of Triumph
Always amusing, often downright hilarious collection of reminiscences by the author spotlighting her adventures as a "floating secretary" (temporary assistant) in Tinsel Town, along with memorable moments from her file of life experiences. A.C. Lyles, legendary producer and goodwill ambassador to the entertainment industry writes, "Kris Smith's entertainment industry career reads like a sitcom." DeForest Kelley's back cover comment is, "A fast-paced book, written with comedic skill. It's a delightful read." And producer Clyde Phillips chimes in, "Of all the books I've ever been quoted in, this is one of them!" Sound like fun? IT IS!
Let No Day Dawn that the Animals Cannot Share
An expressive, compassionate collection of poetry and prose that clutches passionately at the animal enthusiast's heart and spirit. The book spotlights mankind's deeply rooted emotional, ethical and spiritual bonds to the animal kingdom, wild and domestic, and then identifies areas in which we have fallen painfully short regarding our stewardship of precious and irreplaceable fellow creatures.

Purposeful Christianity: Sharing the Verve and Value of the Prince of Peace
Purposeful Christianity is a timely tome for those connecting to the faith for the first time or for those already of the faith who simply love to hear how good God is - all the time. A certifiable "God chaser", the author is a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. Formally baptized on Sept 14, 1999 following a revelation by the Holy Spirit, Kris has pursued God non-stop ever since. "Nothing else matters as much to me anymore." A member of Church for all Nations (CFAN) in Tacoma, Washington, Kris is presently "heart at work" at CFAN and other Spirit-led ministries in the region.
