I absolutely adored this. I gave it to my niece and nephew after reading it myself. Such a sweet story about a star with a very important purpose. A great story for around Christmas time." -- Jezier C. Akin rated it 5-stars on GoodReads.

4)
"the Star" is a delightful tale of a star looking for it's purpose and wishing to be great. The dark illustrations with their barely there shadow trees in some cases and their easier to see colorful pictures in others make the book. I also love that the book introduces several constellations and explains the Star of Bethlehem. I would definitely recommend this book to small children. (I received this in a GoodReads giveaway.) - Kathleen rated it 4-stars on GoodReads.


My Memoir is a testimony to making the correct decision to leave my comfort zone and fully embrace a new life with unbridled passion. As you join my interior and exterior voyages via diaries, poems, paintings, memories of emotional upheavals, mistakes, self-doubts and the eventual pure joy of allowing my dreams to unfold, you may agree that the creative harnessing of the unexpected may be a much wiser choice than fearing it.

John Roche is a hard-drinking, hard-nosed Irishman, but unlike most of his fellow countrymen he has long since had the blarney knocked out of him by the sheer injustice of his early years.  He is very flawed but in many ways that he himself would certainly never acknowledge, very vulnerable.  

Now in his middle years, Roche is a good detective, but not such a sound human being.  He would give his age as 38, but he is less sure than one might expect of that.  He had long since learned to bury the past - at least for sanity purposes - by slave-driving himself, and those around him, when he worked, and by a constant supply of Jameson's when he did not.  

Set in the Midlands of the UK, this, his latest case, will be a one that Roche will never be able to forget.  

You can bury the past, but the past has a nasty habit of coming back to bite you ... and now John Roche's past has collided full force with his present.  John Roche has never been phased by anything.  Until now.  This case though is not going to be like any other for him.  The circumstances are not at all ordinary and the outcomes even more dramatic than Roche could foresee!

"It had been hours since I ran at track practice that winter, but I hadn't bothered to shower, let alone change clothes. No, I didn't have time for that, because I had found the answer to my prayers.

This has to be it.
Eat all the fruit you want.
Never get fat.
Raw. Food. Diet."

Rachael Steil clocked in as an All-American collegiate runner; she became a girl clawing for a comeback on a 30-bananas-a-day diet. This year-long struggle with raw food ended when she realized she had to find her self-respect beyond her identity as a successful runner on a perfect diet. Running in Silence opens the door on the secret world of eating disorders. It provides vital insights for those who don't suffer from this disease and an honest and harrowing personal story for those who do. Steil challenges the stigma of eating disorders, looks past appearance, and dives into the heart of obsession.

Vat Fraud was nothing new to Edward Dantès, Ed to his mates.  He got caught up in almost by accident on his part; it was by careful design on another's.  It had landed him in extreme difficulty for several years.  Her Majesty's Customs & Excise had nicked him and then hashed together a case for two brutal super trials.

 

Something had certainly gone on.  Not what the revenue men had said, not even close.  They'd missed the real extent of the stuff Ed had gotten himself mixed up in.  Some was legitimate and some certainly wasn't.  Whatever Ed was doing he was trying his best to make his own way in the world. 

 

Ed had beaten the trials, in the process he got an understanding of how the organisation he referred to as the Church, C & E operated.  He knew the lengths they would go to, how little respect they had for the truth and the law.  He saw just how far they were prepared to go; he thought. So he'd gone straight, for a bit.

 

That wouldn't last, he had the flavour for fast money.  The travel, the excitement, the living on the edge would always pull him back, once the storm had passed.  Breaking Banus and the clouting Credit Swiss had been good.  He'd got away with both moves.  He had money again and needed more to get his life sorted, where he wanted it.

 

He knew when Hans walked through the door and laid the waffle on him.  Trading in mobile phones.  The grey market got getting slung up as being the new thing.  It probably existed, but too much of what Hans said stunk of the Gold and Platinum moves, his moves from the early nineties.

 

Ed knew how the Church operated.  He knew they'd get on it soon enough.  It had been a long while since they'd kicked his door in.  Six years, almost to the day and just maybe he knew how to stay one step ahead of them.  He was on their radar, when his name came up, as it surely would.  It would be they knew, he knew, they knew he was in it.

 

Ed gets started, he sets out his stall, ready for the day of reckoning from the very start.  All the window dressing and all the roles needed to be played, to beat the trial.  That's all that mattered.  The new kids on the block were flat out.  They think they invented the job, they think the Church aren't to be taken seriously, it's all just fun, they were so so wrong.

 

Berni is brought in, Ed has his head up and eyes open.  They pull in old school help in Italy.  The gang is operating from Switzerland.  Millions of pounds of high value mobile phones are coming to the UK and leaving on the same day.  The stock moves through the companies in one direction.  Millions of pounds is flowing through the banks in the opposite direction.

 

The carousel is running.  It's growing.  It becomes the single largest threat to the British economy and in a few short year morphs into a web of international crime and money laundering.  Ed stays at the heart of it for six years.  This is the first book of the carousel trilogy.

 

And of course the old gang are going to rob a few players in the old fashioned way.  Especially the flash ones that ask for it.  It's almost patriotic the way the targets get selected.

From the squalid tenements of the Lower East Side to the bloody Battle of Belleau Wood, FIXER is the story of Harry Leonnoff, a fearless politician who protects New York's immigrants and poor from a political system that favors the rich and the powerful. Leonnoff confronts gangsters and bigots, saves nine innocent black men from the electric chair, and defies the “Little Flower” – New York's vindictive Mayor Fiorello La Guardia.

Secrets, passion, betrayal...
Written with passionate conviction, this story is being recorded by two of its characters: Ben, a twenty-seven years old student, and Anita, a plain-spoken, spunky, uneducated redhead, freshly married to Lenny, his aging father. Behind his back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices are being captured by him.

Meanwhile, Lenny is trying to keep a secret from both of them: his ex-wife, Ben's mother, a talented pianist, has been stricken with early-onset alzheimer. Taking care of her gradually weighs him down. What emerges in these characters is a struggle, a desperate, daring struggle to find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness. 

These tapes hold the secret of the story. As one of the characters concludes, "I wish I could be more confident of its veracity and completeness. I wish I could do more. This, I suppose, is the nature of the quest for truth--even if it is truth in fiction."

Where does the title, Apart From Love, come from?
The word Love is used sparingly in the novel, which makes it ever more precious. The title comes from a phrase used three times in the story:

After a while I whispered, like, "Just say something to me. Anything." And I thought, Any other word apart from Love, 'cause that word is diluted, and no one knows what it really means, anyway.
Anita

Why, why can't you say nothing? Say any word--but that one, 'cause you don't really mean it. Nobody does. Say anything, apart from Love.
Anita

For my own sake I should have been much more careful. Now--even in her absence--I find myself in her hands, which feels strange to me. I am surrounded--and at the same time, isolated. I am alone. I am apart from Love.
Ben

When Carringby Industries, a government-contracted arms manufacturer, is raided by what appear to be terrorists, the CEO’s secretary, Belinda Reese, is rescued by Brandon Drake, a dashing young AWOL soldier. Using an experimental test aircraft, he flees with her to his remote, isolated cabin in the mountains of Aspen.

While assisting in the design of military weaponry, Brandon discovered a plot within his own government to attack its own facilities, under the guidance of immoral politician, Senator Garrison Treadwell. Belinda’s body was not found among the dead at Carringby Industries, and Treadwell suspects that Drake was responsible for rescuing her. In an effort to entrap him, Treadwell arranges for an all points bulletin to be placed on Belinda.

Deeply in love, Brandon and Belinda attempt to escape from America, only to endure one harrowing experience after another as they try to evade and expose Treadwell’s corrupt faction.

But on the run, with danger around every corner, Brandon makes a discovery so devastating that it shatters the very foundations of his reality.

Latest Poem

Not the fire, nor the sun, can warm this cold
As I watch the thawing snow... 
I feel your love surround me 
Like an aching, burning glow... 

What is it about you that moves me? 
What kind of magic do you weave? 
Wrapped in your soothing shadow…
My weary soul finds reprieve...

Life is the way it is not because of what happens, but because of the label that’s applied which makes our attention selective and limited. If you can get beyond the label, you’ll understand just how limited it makes life.

What the eyes see and focus on is very limiting, this doesn’t mean what is seen isn’t there, it’s just seen in the limited way the Conditioned Mind makes it out to be. The process of seeing and labeling is what causes this. As soon as something is seen and the applied label is attached, therein lies our limit. From the applied names of people we know, to objects, feelings, and emotions, we have been conditioned to think these are all needed, especially as the label is associated with who we think we are. It also affects you when someone labels you and you attach to it. This is all because of how the eyes see and take in the projected image; it’s as if there’s a person up in your head that takes what the eyes see and selects the label and where the attention goes.

This also applies to sounds, sounds as are images are something that arise from the space of silence, the label doesn’t enhance life, it actually diminishes it because it fills up the space of silence with selective attention. In this selectiveness is our suffering because of the limit that’s applied, which closes the heart. This is how most people are conditioned, but if you can get beyond the label, you’ll understand just how limited your life is. I write a daily article, but there’s no label applied to it, it’s one of the reasons I’m able to write one everyday. The articles definitely exist, just not in the way they’re seen. Truth can only be experienced when one’s selective attention goes beyond the applied labeled and that will only happen when the person who is in your head is fired so what the eyes see and what the ears hear is not given a label.

Love is given a lot of lip service in our society, but not much heart service. You can’t pick and choose who to love, either you love all or you love none, there’s no such thing as only loving some.

Why most people have to hit a bottom before there is significant change in their life is because of the way our selfish nature has evolved. This seems to be a common denominator amongst us which doesn’t allow one’s heart to open to see their true nature of love. This isn’t the story of what one thinks love is, it’s unconditional love that arises from the depths of one’s heart. Most people don’t truly know what love is because it’s always centered around some attachment to a conditioned story, but true love needs no story. I know many who speak of love for their own children, but what about all those children who die everyday and aren’t even given a thought?

Unconditional love has no me, my, or I attached to it, as a matter of fact it has nothing attached to it and until this story stops, suffering continues as the default setting of one’s mind. Unfortunately love is given a lot of lip service in our society, but not much heart service. You can’t pick and choose who to love, either you love all or you love none, there’s no such thing as only loving some; matter of another fact is it’s impossible to truly love only some. A true transformation occurs when there’s no where else to turn, the danger in this is many transforms but not in this world. I don’t profess to understand how the Universe works, but I do know what happened to me and that’s what I share. And although I had to hit a bottom to wake up, it’s my passion to assist in the waking process of those who are tired of suffering and want to wake up now.
