Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I am on "The Bookplace" network and "The New York" network as well. I'm an ex Marine Gulf War vet first and foremost. After that I am a father of one boy, a past substance abuser of all types, a fitness nut, a jack of all tradesman, a felon, a brawler, twice divorced, and a survivor of bipolar illness.

For all I've done (and it's a bunch) bipolar became my whole entire universe. I wallowed in every negative emotion there is to feel and at strengths I didn't know the human mind had the power to drum up. It was killing me...literally.

I've since recovered, although that's supposed to be impossible, I quit every thing I was ever addicted to (except coffee - me and the holy bean have an understanding), and my life just improves in ways I did not see coming.

My story is not believed by some. I've been clinically dead twice, multiple times during each day. I've come out of two comas. I've survived car wrecks, gang attacks, and many other violent physical happenings, not the least of which was the War.

I became someone that others feared, including my own family. Eventually, I simply turned pathetic as bipolar consumed me and robbed me of all my strength, dignity, possessions, freedom, wives, and then my sanity.

I was beyond hope, beyond help for eight years. Somewhere in there I got pissed! The character traits planted in me firmly by the Marines started resurfacing and I took charge. It took me a few years to figure it all out but I did it.

This story and my system tested by myself, is what's in my book "It Takes Guts To Be Me: How An Ex Marine Beat Bipolarism."

When you read where my life took me and how horrific a place that was, you will feel hope for yourself. Because I made it out. So can you or your loved one if this is the 6,000 pound gorilla on your back. Trust me.

God's given me countless free passes. There's a reason I'm still drawing air. It's to help you.

Ho do I get ahold of Ken?

In direct response to my new friend Eric Castaneda, here is my email:

I can also be reached through my site at:

And I spew entertainment and mighty wisdom over here:

That's the nice thing about these private networks. They give us a chance to refine our approach before we bare ourselves naked to the anonymous hordes. I mean, you just don't hear of a thing like "the reasonable horde." Better to be prepared beforehand.

Take a scroll down the page and check out my new pics and new video. I have been hammering away mercilessly through the night setting up file sharing accounts here, there, everywhere and uploading film.

Same with photos. Wanna get noticed? Make a big racket!

Take care everybody!

I thank God that you are one of the survivors of bipolar. I know what you mean by the meds don't work for you, as my husband also inheritated this disorder, and he could take a truck load of prozac, and he is the nastiest
person that you would ever want to meet when he has his moments. One day he is the most pleasant person, and the next he is nasty. He could lose his temper at
the drop of a hat. It is very hard to deal with him.
My two older sons thankfully did not inherit his disorder, but our daughter did. Her son, whom we have since adopted looks like he also missed the disorder, but alot of times it hits as a teen, or when some kind of crisis hits. So, I guess we never know if it will hit any of my sons. God willing, it will not.
I hope that your son never knows the pain that you, or I, or anyone else with this disorder in their family has been through. God bless and watch over you always.
PS. Great videos

Oh, I'm so sorry for that! I was up past my bedtime, pushing my awareness limits.

I like to get people's names right (especially when they're written somewhere right in front of me) and I get very annoyed when I don't.

It's good to meet you too!

Hi Ken:

Had my stache since 1969. Have a great story about it--for another time. Regarding Richard Marcinko books (and his related success), he's certainly been able to pull from past experience to bring some of the realities of today's world to the forefront. The Rogue Warrior series has done well for him. I've only scanned through a couple of them. Honestly, I try to stay away from books with themes similar to mine, so I don't subconsciously plagerize events or other items that could get me in trouble. As you are probably aware, he has actually had a co-author on quite a few of his books. I wish I had that luxury. But #1 on the NY Times list ain't bad.

From a business standpoint, he and I touch on similar territory--consulting with corporations and government agencies.

Sounds, though, as if you have plenty to draw from with your military and personal experiences--to compete with Marchinco's series. Gonna give it a try?

Always glad to help another writer. It's what I've been doing at conferences and online for some time.

Keep at this book marketing stuff. It's work but fun,
