Book description…

The War Is Over Captain is set in the Post Napoleonic war era. Readers will appreciate the authentic depiction of this historical era. Scottish professional soldier Captain Hugh M’Glemere of the disbanded King’s 577th Foote Regiment is unemployed and facing poverty. Almost by accident, he rescues from a mob what he perceives to be a simple “Jew peddler.” Actually, Solomon Woolsey is a wealthy Jewish coal merchant and ship owner. A matchmaker has found a bride for Solomon’s oldest son, Itzac, in a Jewish village near Solomon’s old home in Russia. Hugh is employed to escort a family member on a voyage to bring the bride to Edinburgh. When it’s revealed the local Baron’s mercenary Cossacks are terrorizing the village, Hugh insists on being accompanied by a squad of his also unemployed noncommissioned officers. They take passage through the Baltic to Riga aboard two of Solomon’s small Collier brigs. A proxy marriage is performed at the village. The celebration is crashed by drunken Cossacks not realizing they are attacking a detachment of veteran Scottish Redcoats. Fun and games turn deadly to the horror of the village elders. To escape certain retribution, the villagers flee to Solomon’s ships with Hugh’s promise to transport them to Jerusalem and their Promised Land. The story chronicles the voyage of the bride to her husband in Edinburgh and the eventual delivery of the villagers to their Ottoman controlled Promised Land by way of Scotland and the pirate infested Mediterranean. In the process, soldier Hugh M’Glemere becomes a sea captain in command of his own ship.

Book description…

Crossfire is a story about Michael and Allison and the many exciting events that dominate life in 2028. Not the least of which is the effort by a group of soccer fans who are trying to change the game of the most popular sport in the world. Their seemingly unattainable goal is to make soccer a more exciting game by changing the offside rule that gives the defense a big advantage by limiting scoring. They believe American fans will respond to more scoring and fewer tie games. Needless to say the existing leagues will do almost anything to stop this effort. The world is exploding with advancements such as self driving rental cars that have gone a long way to replace personal car ownership. Also the era of the bullet train in America has begun and it becomes a factor in our story. The heart of the story however is the torrid relationship between two young people discovering that there is more to life than success. Their lives seem charmed until a brutal mob attack changes everything. The action is fast moving and many surprises occur against the backdrop of the formation of the New American Soccer League.

Book description…

In 1964, while serving as a radioman in the United States Navy on Kodiak Island, Alaska, twenty-one-year-old Joseph Bruce LaChance set out to hunt one of nature’s most fearsome creatures-a giant Kodiak brown bear. Expecting to return to the naval base after a three-day expedition, instead LaChance suddenly found himself lost in the wilderness for ten days without a compass, map, or any other means of guidance, while running out of food. With his chances for survival near zero, LaChance had only his undaunting perseverance and faith, both in himself and God, to overcome death’s odds. His struggle to survive, however, did not end on Kodiak Island. Thirty years later, he would face another life or death struggle while again lost and alone, but in a different kind of wilderness-alcoholism. LaChance’s miraculous story provides a profound lesson for us all, not only in how to survive, but to live our lives with love and dignity, at peace with both ourselves and what we conceive as our own Higher Power.
