Signaling: A Message from the Future

Story of an accidental time traveler stranded in the twenty-first century whose presence may change the course of humanity’s future.

In the year AD 4544, a confluence of events shatters a spacecraft in the outer reaches of the solar system, hurling its lone commander, Samantha Hunter, through time and space deep into the past.

Meanwhile, in the near future, award-winning New York Times science editor Jonathan Elliot awakens in the middle of the night to an uninvited guest who appears to have materialized out of thin air. The strange visitor tells him a story so unbelievable that Jonathan feels compelled to write a speculative feature article for the Sunday edition. This midnight visit launches a nine-day whirlwind of events that extend from New York City across the continent to Las Vegas, setting off a chain of inexplicable incidents, a national manhunt involving the top levels of government, a series of revelatory conversations about the future, and a team of unlikely collaborators in a race to save a beautiful, mysterious heroine–and quite possibly the future of the human species.

Who are we really, and where are we going? Pondering these questions and offering an uplifting message of hope for the future, this novel tells the story of an accidental time traveler stranded in the twenty-first century whose presence may change the course of humanity’s future.

369 Days: How To Survive A Year of Worst-Case Scenarios

Does losing EVERYTHING change you for the better?

I wrote 369 Days to share my story of losing everything that people fear to lose, in a year’s time. This book will walk the reader through the losses, and how I came out of each challenge better and stronger than before. The book will show people how to create proper boundaries in their life, so they can prevent significant losses in their own lives.

Introduction – Chasing life goals has a cost. Focusing on the to do lists, countless e-mails, look around you. Right now wherever you are, you not only take up space, but you find yourself in one too. Maybe you’ve never considered it, but this space has incredible intentionality behind it. Someone designed it. Maybe someone else built it. And someone probably even maintains it. Hopefully, this environment is conducive for your goal: whether productivity, leisure, or study. But have you considered your leadership environment? Have you designed, built, and maintained that space too? The quality of your leadership environment determines the quality of your leadership impact.

Part 1: Burning The Candle At Three Ends – Your life and your leadership is getting the exact results it’s designed to get. When we experience undesirable results we have two choices. Average leaders focus predominantly on changing their results. This effort only produces incremental change and ultimately frustration. Exceptional leaders focus on changing their design. This effort produces exponential change and ultimately fulfillment. By designing a clear picture of the finished space we can then take the next step of building it. The first step toward getting what we want is learning what we want.

Part 2: The Cardiac Domino Effect – Suffering a health scare, which impacts your livelihood, can have long lasting effects on you, and your loved ones. Not taking care of you can create events down the road, which you will suffer greatly if not addressed properly. Health changes can impact your finances, which impacts your ability to keep the things you own.

Part 3: Growth Happens if you embrace it – With every change in your life, you have an opportunity to grow from those changes. Losing your way after a significant life event has its way of rebuilding you. Remaining optimistic through turbulent times is crucial, for you to come out on top.

Points of View – The series

News about this series of near future scifi espionage novels, and a special promotional offer for Book One.

In POINTS OF VIEW, the hero is a young blind Londoner, named Horace Mayberry, who gets fitted out with some nanotronic eyes. They are inherently intelligent and can develop various functions to assist in whatever awkward situations the lad gets into. Horace is a cautious lad, who also occasionally experiences vivid dreams. He is recruited into a secret government agency in payment for his new eyes, as an apprehensive assistant to an experienced agent, Captain Aubrey Jackson, and embarks on a series of adventures, including being abducted twice by an international gang of crooks, led by Rudolph Beckmann a billionaire financier who is after the secrets of the laboratory that developed the nanotronic eyes.

Each risky situation Horace encounters, including being kidnapped twice by the terrorists gang, cause his eyes to develop new superhuman abilities as they range over the entire electromagnetic spectrum. His experiences also enable his somewhat introvert personality to evolve too, and his dreams become more meaningful as he becomes somewhat impulsive and headstrong. Horace eventually captures the terrorists’ leader but he manages to escape, leading to an exciting finale when the two agents, backed up by a Spanish SWAT team, try to locate the terrorist’s hideout in Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands!
