In November 1605, the infamous Gunpowder Plot took place in which some Catholics, most famously Guy Fawkes, plotted to blow up James I, the first of the Stuart kings of England. The story is remembered each November 5th when ‘Guys’ are burned in a celebration known as "Bonfire Night". The story appears to be very simple. Catholics in England had expected James to be more tolerant of them. In fact, he had proved to be the opposite and had ordered all Catholic priests to leave England. This so angered some Catholics that they decided to kill James and put his daughter Elizabeth on the throne ensuring that she was a Catholic. This led to a plot to kill not only the king of England, James, but also everyone sitting in the Houses of Parliament at the same time as James was there when he opened Parliament on November 5th, 1605.Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators, having rented out a house right by the Houses of Parliament, managed to get 36 barrels of gunpowder into a cellar of the House of Lords. The other conspirators were: Robert and Thomas Wintour, Thomas Percy, Christopher and John Wright, Francis Tresham, Everard Digby, Ambrose Rookwood, Thomas Bates, Robert Keyes, Hugh Owen, John Grant and the man who is said to have organised the whole plotRobert Catesby. NOW LETS TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT REALLY HAPPENED - with guest John Hamer
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is celebrating a Big Win today after the attempts of the Obama administration to make him lose the election. Regardless of the millions of US Tax payer dollars that were given to the opposite Israeli party in an attempt to overthrow Bibi...God said otherwise and allowed him to win. What's next for Israel and what will the Obama administration do now since Prime Minister Bengamin Netanyahu has vowed to not give in to US demands or a 2-state solution? Psalm 21:11 Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed. (NIV)

World building, character development, elements of the novel, and the impact of writing in a bubble.
Writing a novel is a balancing act and how well you balance your plot, your characters, and your world building determine the quality of your novel. The ability to do this takes practice.

State and federal authorities have arrested three members of the Ku Klux Klan — all of whom either work, or have worked, for Florida’s troubled prison agency — on charges of conspiring to kill a former prison inmate, prosecutors say.
Arrested Thursday were Thomas Jordan Driver, 25, David Elliot Moran, 47, and Charles Thomas Newcomb, 42, according to a news release from the state Attorney General’s Office. All three face charges of conspiracy to commit murder.
Prosecutors say Driver and Morgan work for the Department of Corrections. Newcomb was a former prison employee who was let go during his probation period.
James O. Born knows what he's writing about. He is an agent with the DEA and a highly regarded author of fiction. Authors on the Air host Pam Stack chats with author James O. Born LIVE on Monday, April 20th at 8pm ET. Here is more about James. When I was new to police work, as an agent with U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, I had an unrealistic view of what my job would be like. On television, DEA agents are in shoot-outs and get the chicks but in real life they follow suspected drug violators around until they can make a case. If you're a new guy, no one in the DEA much cares about family life or other interests, you just drive. I read a lot of Tom Clancy and W.E.B. Griffin because I liked the idea of learning something about the military. I would read the occasional police book but felt the books didn't reflect my experience as a cop. I was not a CIA trained assassin. I could not rip a shotgun out of someone's hands without suffering a catastrophic injury. I didn't crawl out of crushed police cars and shake off the injury. Neither did any cop I knew. So I wrote a book based on real police work with a ficitonal plot. Buy James's books here http://amzn.to/1zxiA29.
