Reuniting With a Lost Love: Is It Possible?

When lost loves are reunited, it is possible that there might be a slight tinge of regret for the one who left and a slight tinge of anger for the one was left behind. These feelings are often buried deep in the heart and almost never acknowledged.

Things could go so well in the beginning of your reunion, but once something happens that will remind either one of you of a certain memory that isn’t worth going back to, everything can fall apart in minutes. The truth is, no matter how…

The Most “Unimaginable Discovery on Texel Island” in the Cold Case Search

We had tracked the flight path of the Lonesome Polecat B-17F from Bremen, Germany to Texel Island, Netherlands through individual surviving crew reports as well as eyewitness reports on Texel. In addition, we discovered reports from two German pilots who saw the B-17 crash near De Koog village.  With all this information, we knew the general flight path of the B-17 across Texel as the crew proceeded to bail out thinking they were over the North Sea.

I would like to share the…

Casting Light on Bleak Emotions

Life happens. And it has the ability to throw us off its course. It can suddenly send challenges on our way, which would make us defenseless in the eyes of the monsters that we call emotions. It gives us unwanted surprises that can tweak our sensibilities into a knot that we won’t know how to untangle. No matter what you do, there is no stopping it from happening. -

Overcome sadness and pain the Christian way. Read more at…

Ascension: A New Earth

In New Age teachings, Ascension is the spiritual transformation of the Earth. It is all encompassing, and once we ascend, all our thoughts, feelings and actions are shifted or fine-tuned to 5th dimensional consciousness.

Ascension is the process of crossing over from the 3rd dimension to the 4th and then to the 5th dimension. The physical plane represents the 3rd dimension, the astral plane represents the 4th dimension, and the mental plane represents the 5th dimension. It is an…

What Does It Mean to Walk with God?

What does it mean to walk with God? Let’s take a walk and find the answer together. Read more here at

On Becoming a Better Person

There was a point in my life when I actually contemplated suicide. At the age of sixty-two, I lost my job as an airline pilot. With a family of five to support, and no income, I started questioning everything I’d done in my life. To make matters worse, months after losing my job, and with my savings depleted, I was diagnosed with cancer.

Despite the Media’s “Problem” with Her and Their Unwillingness to “Love Her Harder”, Ariana Grande’s “Way” still Rocks more than Any Other Celebrity or Performer

There’s one person that’s managed to make friends and/or collaborate with the vaunted likes of Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Nicky Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Jessie Jay, Chris Brown, Zedd, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith amongst others.  It’s not Martha Stewart, P Diddy, or even Kanye W-hor-est.  It’s none other than the superlatively talented petite belle Ariana Grande.

Writing updates!

Just a quick update to my followers on what I’ve been up to lately. After a long four months of constant re-writing, editing, and evaluation, my middle grade sci/fi-fantasy series The Galactic Warrior Series is finally complete and for sale on Amazon. The stories are tight, exciting, and I believe; totally and completely original. Check them out.


Also, I’ve spent several weeks re-doing my descriptions on Amazon for my other books. Instead of merely summarizing the story my…

Research for Amish books in Kalona, Iowa

A trip down memory lane for some, an educational tour for school children and research for me, the author of Amish books. This picture is a grandfather house - one room with kitchen in one corner, table in another and bed on the other end. If you look you can see a grandma standing toward the back of the house.

I was curious about what the inside of an Amish house…

The other side of the writing desk

As I make further inroads into self-publishing, I am finding just how much I didn’t know about the game. Whereas everything had been done for me during my time with Robert Hale Ltd., and then Acclaimed Books, I have to consider all aspects of producing a quality book and realising that I have a lot to learn. I received a proof copy of The Devil’s Trinity from Ingram Spark this week, and was disappointed to see that the placement of Chapter One was on a left hand page. My wife didn’t think it…
