Stories of Our Elders
 
A Call to Action for everyone, everywhere.

History is slipping through our fingers with the loss of our elders. Knowledge and experiences need to be captured before they are gone for good.

I started a project that will capture our elder stories and post them to the world.

Not to bad for a first ARC review

***** it was amazing
" Really excellent! Another great book for middle grade or advanced younger readers. While this one does have a bit more of a mature feel, it is still an appropriate choice for young readers. This book will appeal to those who enjoy Fantasy and Historical Fiction.

Join Katie and her friends on another adventure to a time long ago, and the mission of moving the obelisk to it's new home. The kids learn that the goddesses have allowed them to have special powers to help them on their journey. In this book, they are learning how to wield them wisely. If course, it seems trouble arises around every turn. From kidnappings, to fires, to fights among warriors, this book has the action to keep the pages turning!

*I had the pleasure of receiving an ARC of this book. The review is my own, honest, and unsolicited. (less) " — Audrey Urban

 Here is a post that I just made to my Home Facebook page.

Do Not Suffer the Little Children.

Every day we humans, walk past millions of children as we go about our business. We drive down the road, heading to work and we pull up next to a school bus, maybe stopped at a light. You might look over at it, but chances are you have too many other things on your mind to even care. The light changes and you speed off heading to your appointed rounds, never giving a second thought to the bus let alone the children riding on them.
What do you think would happen if you took, just as second to look up at those children and maybe make eye contact, giving a cute little smile at them? You may not know who they are, individually and you certainly don’t know their story, but what if that single smile you gave them was just enough this poor child needed to make it through another day.
Todays statistics on child abuse are staggering, I am not going to tell you them because I want you to do the leg work and see just how horrible they are. If I tell you, you will only see it once, but if you truly search for the answers you will be appalled, and it will stick with you.
Many of those children, riding on that bus I mentioned before, are currently being abused in some fashion. You think, well that’s a lot of sexual abuse going on, but you would be wrong, you don’t look beyond the curtain to see just what child abuse is. Sexual abuse is a huge part of child neglect, but do you realize that words, to innocent young ears, last longer than anything else. Physical abuse leaves the scars for all to see and work on, but the emotional and mental scars are the most devastating!
Mental abuse will be with that child the rest of their lives, it does not go away. Those thoughts will shape that individual forever, understand this, one is never completely cured, just has learned to cope with their pain, but unfortunately many still haven't.
We love to sit back and say, well there is nothing I can do about it, these aren’t my children and I certainly would not abuse them. Go ahead and stick your head in the sand, it is what we humans do the best, ignore it and it will go away, at least from your perspective. Out of site out of mind, you get the picture.
So, my challenge to you is to SMILE, whenever you can to these children, on the buss, the crosswalk or just walking with their friends.
You just might be the only bright spot in their day!

Take care.
NAMASTE.

I spent most of the last 40 years cramming computerese into this tiny brain and I think it may have caused a leak. Being a computer analyst, from the get go, I have seen mind boggling changes in the computer field. So after much contemplation about retiring, it didn't take much persuasion, I did it. ​In 2017 I gave up the ghost and handed my job over to the younger generation.

So here I am starting over, at 61 no less, hoping to entice you enough to try out my wares.

My hobbies are reading, no joke, but probably not what you are used to. I have always been drawn to philosophers like Socrates, Plato, Kant and many more. I have also loved to study up on ancient history, all the way from the beginning of time until now. Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and the Yucatan draw me whole heartedly to them. 

I was told one time that the greatest error a person can make is to not share all of the information they have gathered in their lifetime. Think about it. You have learned about something and you may have a completely different take on what it is about. Society calls you out to teach others what you know. This is one of the main reasons I choose to write stories about past civilizations. Also if you don't use it you will lose it.

I have probably taken enough of your time, so I wish to thank you for stopping by and checking my site out.

MY WRITINGS
Philosophers, throughout the ages, have delved into the relationship between God and Man. In general society has accepted the message put forth by the major religions and never looks under the cover for a truer meaning. Great thinkers have put forth their ideas and concepts giving us additional thoughts to ponder. You and I are individuals, and being one lets us form our own opinion on how we should celebrate our connection with spirit. There are over 7 billion individuals on this planet and there are over 7 billion paths to God. There is no cookie cutter version of religion that will fit every person, we must read and absorb as much as possible in order for us to make any type of educated decision. I hope that I can provide, in this book, a possible different way of reviewing and analyzing just what it is that you believe. Are you your own person and have your own mind or are your thoughts and deeds someone else's. Namaste.
KATIE O’MALLEY AND THE OBELISK: BACK TO MEMPHIS!

Coming September 9, 2018

Join Katie and her crew on their exciting second adventure as they head back to Egypt. 

Where will they move the Obelisk to this time?

Magical powers always come with a price, be careful when you use them!

Romance is in the air, but between whom?

Is there something the goddesses aren't telling them?

Travel with them as they soldier on, growing in experience and age! 

Tired of reading about a sad and Dystopian future?

How about a nice adventure where you can be entertained and maybe learn a little history to boot.

Walk in Katie and her friends shoes as they travel to ancient civilizations. Taken from their home and forced down a road not of their choosing, support them as they face the many hardships placed before them.

Could you survive being thrown back in time to thousands of years ago? They did and have glorious stories to tell about.

Could you stand before kings and emperors of the past and tell them what they need to do? Katie does and doesn't mince her words.

All of their travels are broken up into two sections, the Preparation and the Journey.
