We see the results of all of these doctrine teachings and we now have two choices to make.
One to keep going down the same path we are going or to change. Change on a massive scale that starts by the power of 2. I am writing this today and someone will read it. That is the power of 2. You, in turn will read my post and will reply to this, or you will show someone else. That is also the power of 2. This will become a viral thing. One reaches the other and you become the teacher and in… Continue

This book is a companion piece to my novel “Chronicles of the Dragons Bane” and is a wonderful example on the importance of motivation. I wish to take a few moments and acknowledge those who motivated me to this level:
In memory of my father William E. Brower Sr. (7/26/47-4/15/08) who taught me that history always starts with… Continue

When the sun retired on cool evenings, purple shadows crept across the fields and villagers sat in stout, mud-brick houses either gossiping or telling stories. The elders sat closest to slow burning fires of cow-dung cakes dried during summer’s ferocity, and whenever they mentioned King Chitraketu’s name, they praised him.
Yet the king found his life more barren than a desert because he had not received a son from any of his wives. Whether he resided in… Continue

This was never more accurate than when I wrote my first book, FOOLS RUSH IN. I took the first case I worked as a secretary for an undercover narcotics team and fictionalized it to include a kidnapping, two murders and a budding romance.
On August 13, I was invited to speak to a book club three hours away on the Pacific… Continue

If there were a problem it would eventually land on Selznick’s desk. But of course that’s the task you assume as motion picture producer.
Just to name a few items; editing the long film down to a… Continue

The structural pattern of outside cells, along with the central corridor, was introduced at Walnut Street Jail and soon became the major architectural feature of prison construction.
