Meet Ramya Julian

Author, illustrator, and dentist, Ramya Julian finished her first novel at the age of ten and she avers it was very well received though it was read only by her brother. She has all the hobbies of a maiden Victorian aunt – reading, writing, painting, crocheting, knitting and sewing, and the temperament of one. When she’s not guilt-tripping her two daughters into good behaviour, she can be found devouring books, crafting poems and puns, and chuckling at her own witticisms. She grew up in India and now lives with her husband and their two daughters in London. She has experienced so much joy through the enchanting artistry of many authors and creators, that she aspires to share at least some of it through her writing.

Interview with an Oracle, Profound Revelations about Our World

If you’re concerned about the current state of the world, the political turmoil in our country, the future of our country, and the future of Western civilization, this book is an important read. On an extended trek into the vast wilderness of the Himalayas, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on an extraordinary opportunity. A series of adventures led him to an ancient Oracle Temple in the highlands of Tibet where he encountered a true shamanistic Oracle from the esoteric B’on wisdom tradition. The author’s discussions with the Oracle covered a wide range of subjects, revealing a series of profound insights. A brief excerpt of the Oracle’s comments regarding our present civilization: “The life of a government springs from the life of its people, the life of the people from the life of their mind, hence the life of their mind determines the future of their land. This future is found only in freedom—from deception, from destruction, from the false—life is found in freedom to recognize and express the true. Among your Founders were enlightened ones; your form of government was designed and implemented to assure individual freedom and nurture individual spirituality and creativity. It has undergone an immense swing to the opposite pole; it now assures nothing but mass order at any cost and nurtures nothing but the imposition of mass materiality and mass productivity. Freedom is gone, replaced by economic seeking and monetary accumulation. Yet this materiality is utterly and absolutely false. The resulting emptiness of life and alteration, depletion and destruction of the earth telegraph this with alarming clarity. “In your country what was once a government of reason and law has been replaced by a tyranny of men. The sovereignty of the people has become a sovereignty of manipulators, politicians as conscious agents of a great deception, the power of which dements even more than it corrupts. Your society is divided into a tiny group of men who choose and decide, a small number of others who know far less and decide nothing yet wield power in conformity with the hidden policies—those who gather in your congress to go through the motions of democracy’s ghost—and the masses, compelled to act and live in total incomprehension of the manipulation of their movements, and so their lives.” Author’s note: “As the Oracle expressed this, there was no trace of mocking or bitterness in his voice, only a certain weariness, a calm acceptance of what is.” An extraordinary account that is compelling, thought provoking, and richly enlightening, this book will impact you and linger in your thoughts long after the last words have been read. Includes an important chapter on the history of government through its various forms and outcomes. 2020 Edition, e-reader page count 296 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). Includes Reference Citations and Source Material. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.

Interviewing a Regular Joe

Maxwell Maltz once said, “you can always find the sun within yourself if you will only search.” We often ask ourselves various questions in our search to discover our purpose, questions like, ‘who am I? Why did I come to this world? What for? How can I become the best version of myself? These questions, though intriguing, leave us in an unending sea of doubts and dismays as we struggle to come up with the right answers. Answering these questions demand total self-awareness, authentic knowledge of spirituality, the experience of a life lived fully, a broader view of the world, and many more. Interviewing a regular Joe is a powerful and one-stop-shop approach that answers most of these questions. It is a novel written in a unique style that addresses a highly important aspect of the human personality.

It covers many essential topics that range from faith, future, personal greatness, nutrition, and many others. This book is the best read for you if you desire to discover your inner self and nourish your content.

Meet Al & Sunny Lockwood

Al and Sunny Lockwood met after he’d retired from engineering and she’d retired from daily newspaper reporting. They spent much of their time exploring California, Al with his camera and Sunny with her notebook and pen. But a serious car wreck changed their lives.

In 2012, while they waited at a red light, a driver paying more attention to her phone than her driving, slammed into them at 60 miles per hour. The collision totaled both cars and filled the Lockwood’s summer with doctor appointments, pharmacy visits, and endless wrangling with insurance companies.

The wreck also woke them up to the reality that life is fragile and there’s no guarantee you’ll have it for long. “We decided to stop putting off our travel dreams for some day in the future,” Sunny says. “We’ve made ‘someday’ today.”

Their first dream cruise was through the Panama Canal.

Then Al and Sunny visited Amsterdam and cruised the Mediterranean, stopping at Venice, Athens, Istanbul, Ephesus, and various Greek islands.

Together Al and Sunny have visited more than 30 countries.

“We write to encourage people to make their travel dreams come true,” Sunny says. “We want our readers to know that travel enhances health and enriches life. So step out of your everyday routine and take a chance on adventure and fun.”

You Are the Prize: Seeing Yourself Beyond the Imperfections of Your Trauma

You Are the Prize: Seeing Yourself Beyond the Imperfections of Your Trauma explores the journey and struggles in author Amnoni Myers’ life. She learned to succeed in a world full of intricacies and survive through dark moments as a child growing up in the foster care system. Despite negative statistics, Amnoni was always determined to create a different story than the one that was written about her. This is a must-read if you are interested in learning more about the personal experiences of children in the foster care system. Myers challenges the reader: How do I help young people navigate difficult transitions? What sustainable methods can I employ to help young people thrive in spite of their trauma? This book is a personal mantra and a reminder that we all deserve to understand our worth regardless of what we’ve experienced. You Are the Prize speaks to young people who are currently in the system and thought leaders who want to grapple with transforming the child welfare system in order to help foster children find their voice.

Meet Amnoni L Myers

A native of Boston, MA Amnoni (pronounced Ah-mon-knee) began her life as a ward of the state, and her childhood experiences in foster care drive her commitment to help others realize their potential and break the cycles of generational poverty.

In May of 2015, she was invited to once again present her policy recommendations at a congressional briefing hosted by the U.S. Senate Caucus on Foster Youth. That same month, she also delivered opening remarks at the 2015 Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit, an annual national gathering of child welfare advocates and churches.

They Can’t Eat You for Supper

“…an emotional read.” Reader review ★★★★★

Kristin Murphy doesn’t like change.

When a lavish lifestyle and controlling marriage left her broken, she traded the pressures of perfection for her sanity. Today, her southern farmhouse can’t compare to the mansion she left, but her family has peace. Until she’s blindsided.

The fog lifts, and she’s separated from two daughters she swore to protect. An ill child relies on Kristin’s medical skills, while luxurious promises lure her teen out of reach. Fighting to remain relevant to them wasn’t something she prepared for, but she’s here now.

It’s a familiar psychological hell. Only this time, the stakes are higher.

Can Kristin return to being the mother she always wanted, or will she give in to a twisted family past she vowed to bury?
