Make The Dream Happen

Normally I would not post something like this here. However, this is very close to my heart. Help us to make this happen.

College Preparatory Academy of the Treasure Coast
By Yvonne Mason

In this day and age where public school teachers in our country are required to follow a set formula, there has evolved a new type of school for parents who want something different for their children. This new and delightful system is known as a charter school. Its primary function is to reach children who yearn to go to college or need the preparatory skills and classes to help them on their journey. The classrooms are smaller; the teachers are given the freedom to teach to the student without focusing on a rigid test-prep benchmark. The students are encouraged to be free-thinkers without the frustration of being told it has to be one way only.
As a society, we have lost our way where our children are concerned. They are our future. When we stifle that future, we only get the return on the investment we put into it. Children who attend charter schools usually have the freedom and ability to explore new horizons. Charter schools break the mold. The child is taught, given the freedom to learn, to explore, to think on their own. This is called growth.
In St. Lucie County, there is a first and only charter high school getting ready to open for the August 2012 school year. Part of the St. Lucie County School District, this new charter school is starting with just 9th grade. Subsequent grades will be added each year they’re open. It’s called the College Preparatory Academy of The Treasure Coast.
Is your child important enough that you want the best foundation for him before he gets to college, so that he will not be lost in the maze which college life brings? If the answer is “yes”, then my next question is this – “Why have you not contacted the officials at the school to get an application for your 9th grader?”
It is very simple. You just contact the school at or call (772) 323-3747 for an application. There are several slots available, but time is growing short. Another thing—if you live out of state and are thinking of moving to this area and are looking for a good school where your child will be on the ground floor of something great, what are you waiting for?
College Preparatory Academy of the Treasure Coast is a dream-come-true for its founder, Erika Rains, and others who have long sought a way to help students become the best they can be. Won’t you be part of this dream? Won’t you allow your child to fulfill their dream no matter the dream by giving them the tools they need to be successful? It is not too late to get them in on the ground floor. Contact the school today. Get them signed up. Make the dream happen.

If You Missed the Show Last Night…….

Best Selling Florida Author Yvonne Mason

Well kiddies, if you missed the show last night you missed an hour of side splitting, belly laughing, tear running fun. I was a guest on We talked and laughed about many things including the fact that her co-host Bennet Pomerantz was stuck between to true southern girls who gave him no slack. In between laughing and talking with him, I did manage to discuss my books and why I write.

Yes, we also talked about my hats and the flying monkeys that are always appearing on my facebook page and why they are so important to me.

Go listen to the show, learn a bit about me and why I do what I do. I am not your average author. I don’t stick to just one genre. The voices in my head won’t let me. I learned a long time ago to just let them do their thing. Sometimes it gets extremely crowded in there. But such as it is with authors. I love what I do and no I don’t expect to get rich- but in the big picture I am already richer beyond my wildest dreams.

When Fates Collide

We talked about the conception of this little jewel and her sister.

When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound

Both of these books should be illegal because they are so funny. This book comes with a disclaimer that we are not responsible for soiled clothing as you are reading it.

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option

This is the reason I am successful. This book is the heart and soul of our family. He has never quit even though he could. So we never quit.

Blood Alley

This little short story is only available right now on kindle and nook. It is well worth the read. It will make you think twice about traveling late at night alone on a two lane black top.

A Voice From the Grave

My historical fiction is available in book form, kindle, kindle audible, nook and in an mp3 CD format. If you enjoy reading about history of the civil war you will love this book.

Tangled Minds

Every teen should read this book. There are life’s lessons as well as entertainment between the pages. Actions always create and equal or opposite reaction which will without fail create a consequence!

The Last Rites

My second true crime. She was raped and executed and left in a remote area. To add insult to injury no one cared enough to claim her body. She was buried by the county in a pauper’s grave. Read her story and remember her death and honor her life.

Silent Scream A True Crime

Florida’s first serial killer Gerard Schaefer tortured and executed between 9-34 young and young women. This is their story.

Brilliant Insanity

Brilliant Insanity the title says it all. A serial killer has five days to live and he is allowed to tell his story. The story is told in first person and will keep you up nights. No it is not a true crime. But it could have happened.

Check out the show and my books. They are all on Amazon, Lulu, Kindle, Nook, itunes, ebooks, and my online bookstore if you would like a signed copy at

Go listen to the show laugh till you cry – then go order my books – it will make your day.
