By the end of 2009 Blaize had already begun working on a more adult audience for her books. She began with a book she originally titled ‘Fire’ on her computer. She eventually self published it under the title ‘District One Stand By: The Captain’s Last year’ in which was published in 2010. By April of that same year, her book had been picked up by a publishing house and she was no longer a self published author. The name changed to ‘Firefighter Down, District One’. By September the book hit the top 100,000 chart on both Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. By then she was getting interviews with people such as Jo Lindell, The Mudge Report, Benjamin Wallace, The Sasha Marina Show, Morgen Bailey , Clancy Tucker, as well as the ‘Mirror Report’ in the Sun Journal from Lewiston, Maine as well as many others..
“District One Stand By:’ series is based upon my hometown, Standish, Maine. ‘The Captain’s Last Year, One Year to Live: Fighting the Flame and Cancer’ is based in Maine as well. There is something special about Maine that brings out my inspiration to write.” She admitted.Blaize Nolynne books are available everywhere books are sold and including large distributors such as Ingram, Baker and Taylor, ect.
Proceeds of her book : ‘The Captain's Last Year: One Year to Live, Fighting the Flame and Cancer ‘ she is donating not just to cancer research, but to also help a local Maine Fire Chief, Jeff Douglass of Baldwin, Maine who is struggling with terminal cancer. She is putting part of the proceeds for his treatments.

When we last spoke to Guatemala City firefighter/paramedic/heart surgeon Dr. Jorge Chiu, he was riding off into the sunset in a "new" ambulance. The sorely needed vehicle was made possible by the many people who donated money to a fundraiser that was launched and coordinated by photographer and former Talkupy guest Giles Clark.
Sadly, that was not to be the beginning of a happy ending. The ambulance has been out of commission months due to an accident in early December. Talkupy with Annie Lindstrom welcomes Jorge to the show on Sunday Feb. 1 at 7 pm ET to tell us what happened, how people can help get him back on the road saving lives, and why it's so important to him and the people he serves.
For more information on Jorge go to his Facebook page and check out an excellent short film that Giles shot about Jorge and his fellow "bomberos" for Vice magazine last year. To donate to help repair the ambulance, please go to Paypal and send the donation to firstname.lastname@example.org
