    Passage to Empowerment - Life's transitions - Young adult to Death - Part 2

    in Lifestyle

    How do we handle the transitions from young adult to middle age to oh my aching bones? LOL How important is higher education or a trade? If we see our adult children making a big mistake do we speak up or stay quiet?  Do our children still need us as they get older? How about when the tables are turned and our parents need us? What do we do and when? Or do we turn a blind eye to the situation and hope that someone else in the family or the doctor makes the call?

    Indie Books #75 (Martin Roy Hill)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 


    Author Martin Roy Hill joins me this week to talk about his books, including: Eden, Empty Places, The Killing Depths & Duty. 


    From his most recent release - Eden: A Sci-Fi Novella


    "If this is Paradise, how bad could Hell be?" A sandstorm uncovers a long buried secret in the Iraqi desert, an ancient Sumerian temple dating back at least 6,000 years to the beginning of civilization. An American army patrol sent to investigate the ruins is trapped inside the temple’s eroded walls, first by an insurgent ambush then by another, even more powerful sandstorm. When an enemy mortar shell blasts an opening into a hidden burial chamber, Captain Adam Cadman and his soldiers take refuge deep in the ruins. What they find hidden inside threatens to destroy every belief about the beginnings of mankind—as well as modern society as we know it.

    A Life Singular - Part One


      The first of a six-part novel serial, "A Life Singular" continues the story of a successful celebrity writing his autobiography after the tragic loss of his wife. In essence a love story, "A Life Singular" is about dealing with mental illness, the choices we make between right and wrong, and how the one affects the other.

      What do you do when you lose the one who gave your life meaning? You write about it. You tell the world how amazing it is to love and be loved by someone so special, what love helps you achieve and how it makes you stronger.

      Jeff Diamond had built a life of influence, adulation and wealth by making the right choices for the right reasons. He lived by the law of reciprocity, a lesson learned on the streets as a teenager with nothing but an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Plagued by the scars of a violent childhood, he created his vision and fought for it. And once he no longer needed to fight for himself, he fought for others.

      Yet when Jeff’s dream girl was taken from him and their children by the ignorant act of a jealous misfit from his own home town, the millionnaire realised just how far he had come. Why had he succeeded when so many like him fail? It wasn’t complicated. The secret lay in the endless pursuit of love and wisdom; life’s two magic ingredients. Now Lynn was gone, he resolved to use his remaining days to account for their life in a way that would inspire young people to make his type of choice rather than García’s.

      Then after their story was written, he would be free to go after her, to begin the whole incredible journey over again.

      Everyone has a life singular. One. Unique. Extraordinary.

    Indie Books #76 (Scott Pinsker)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 


    Author Scott Pinsker joins me this week to talk about his book, The Second Coming: A Love Story


    Two men claim to be the Second Coming of Christ. Each claims the other is Satan in disguise. But only one is telling the truth. In "The Second Coming: A Love Story," the devilish new novel by Scott Pinsker, the culture war between Red America and Blue America turns shockingly real when two self-declared saviors appear on earth. The first “messiah” attracts legions of liberal and secular-progressive followers with his message of New Age brotherhood, quickly becoming the darling of the left. The second “messiah” preaches fire-and-brimstone traditional Christianity, gaining a grassroots army of conservative worshipers ready to battle to the death. It’s finally happened: Red America and Blue America are headed for Armageddon! Novelist Scott Pinsker is a Tampa Bay-based celebrity publicist who has also written for FOXNews.com as a marketing expert. As Pinsker tells it: “Late one night I had an unsettling thought: If the Devil truly wanted to con mankind, he wouldn’t have a pitchfork and horns. All those horror movies have it wrong; a pitchfork and horns are bad marketing. Instead, his smartest strategy for activating new followers would be to appear as a holy man – and claim the faith of his target audience. Because if I were Satan’s publicist, that’s what I’d recommend.”

    Young financier William Ralston, heartbroken at the death of his fiancée, Louisa Thorn,
    moves to San Francisco five years after the gold rush. She, the granddaughter of

    beautiful city. Now, Ralston will build the city on his own, but in her memory. The 
    Comstock Lode is discovered and Ralston’s quixotic dream appears plausible: he will 
    funnel its riches into San Francisco. Other men, however, have their own plans for the 
    prolific silver mines, including Prussian immigrant Adolph Sutro. A decade-long battle

    Author Rob Sinclair joins me this week to talk about his novel: Dance WithThe Enemy and more. 


    Carl Logan was the perfect agent. A loner. No real friends or family. Trained to deal with any situation with cold efficiency, devoid of emotion.


    But Logan isn’t the man he used to be, or the asset he once was. Five months ago his life changed forever when he was captured, tortured and left for dead by Youssef Selim, one of the world’s most violent terrorists.


    When Selim mysteriously reappears in Paris, linked to the kidnapping of America’s Attorney General, Logan smells his chance for revenge.


    Pursuing his man relentlessly, oblivious to the growing trail of destruction that he leaves in his wake, Logan delves increasingly deep into the web of lies and deceit surrounding the kidnapping.


    Finally, he comes to learn just what it means to Dance with the Enemy.

    SECRET BETRAYAL~


      The desperate act of a young girl, on the cusp of womanhood, to lose herself in the mean streets and cabarets of 1930s Berlin, and years later, the disappearance of a key American general shortly before D-Day in 1944 are links in an ingenious plot to gain the secrets of the Allied invasion.

      Through a series of traumatic events Reichsletter Martin Bormann, the man more than any other that truly ran the German government toward the end of World War II, sets in motion a deadly gambit that ricochets across half the world and gains Bormann possession of the Normandy invasion plans. In the double dealing, back stabbing chaos that was the Nazi inner circle, this climactic information is the currency that will buy Bormann the one thing that he has desired above all others: the right to be the next Fuhrer.

      So unfolds the dynamic pages of Secret Betrayal. This novel is a testament to the redemptive power of love, the evolutionary power of kundalini yoga and the war within a war waged by Reichsletter Martin Bormann and Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler for the mind of and influence over Adolf Hitler.

    TIM CONNOR HITS TROUBLE~


      Tim Connor Hits Trouble defies conventional genres. It is funny, occasionally violent, intelligent, controversial and full of sexual twists and turns. We meet Tim Connor just as his marriage hits the rocks and as he is about to 'escape' to a new job in the Social Science Department at Wash University. Far from finding tranquillity, Tim 'hits trouble' in Wash both personally and at work. Now 'on the loose' he has several interesting and 'unusual' encounters with women. At work, Tim finds himself drawn into a conflict between an old rebel academic, Henry Jones, and the ambitious Head of Faculty, Howard Swankie that culminates in a tense and dramatic climax. Within the novel's lively narrative, characters argue, sometimes angrily, over the direction of contemporary higher education - making this a relevant as well as a gripping and highly enjoyable novel.
