Book description…

This is the unique life story of Dorothy Eiko Omura from childhood to marriage and the incredulous life and death challenges she faced. It starts with observations and stories of her family life to revelations of secret incidents that target her because of her family’s Christian belief amidst the government’s powerful religion, Buddhism. There are references to how Christianity lost its foothold in Japan through recollections of stories passed on. There are details on the several attempts on her life and how she miraculously survives them. Eventually, all of these incidents are forgotten and lost in her memory until they resurface in her later years. This autobiography is a way for her to gather those memories and put them into written form as a way to preserve and understand what happened and why they happened to her. The events take place in pre-World War II, Japan.

Book description…

As the title of the book suggests, this book is about the process of Temporal Engineering™ software. This is NOT the process currently called software engineering, which is primarily an administrative process and Spatial Engineering™. To engineer Temporal Software is a skill and discipline that can be repeated over and over. It is based on knowledge gained from proper mentoring and repeated reviews of one’s skills. Temporal software is coherent from beginning to end, and is so coherent that the model is the application. Temporal Engineering of software is a disruptive technology because it greatly reduces size, complexity and thereby cost. With the cost to develop software at $10 to $100+ per line of code, reducing application size and complexity is extremely important to the corporate bottom line. When a temporal architecture is fully implemented it can reduce the size of applications up to 50% and reduce complexity by a factor of up to three times and yet maintain the same functions and features.

Book description…

Many would say that Dr. Michael O’Byrne has it all. With a beautiful, smart, if somewhat snobbish wife, a loving young daughter, a successful practice, and an elegant home in the burbs, his life seems perfect. But his cushy existence is suddenly threatened when mysterious emails begin arriving from a woman from his past. A woman he last saw at a class reunion years ago who now wants to meet him-at a very odd place and time. Intrigued, Michael welcomes the private diversion, and takes the emails at face value, purposely avoiding a serious search as to who, or even what, is really behind them. Knowing the magnitude of the risk, he formulates a credible plan and alibi to justify his absence. But at the last minute, problems arise, suspicious things, warning, perhaps, that Michael should call the whole thing off. But no. If his escalating guilt and apprehension can’t stop him, nothing can. Finally the long-awaited day arrives-a day when nothing but the unexpected occurs and one Michael wishes would both end and continue. And when it’s over, one thing is certain. This day in June will live secretly in his mind forever. Twists, surprises, deceptions, revenge-Secrets Unused has them all. With this psychological tour de force, a bookmark may not be necessary. Because putting it down might not be possible…
