It is a guidebook to what we could be doing better, based on where we are and how we got here. It answers some fundamental questions about why we need to change while offering some ideas as to how we go about it.

This book will make you think about old things in new ways and encourage you to develop new ideas of your own. It will entertain you along the way. It is a remix. I am just the conductor and arranger of these ideas in a new format.

The Platinum Retriever: Earth’s Unexpected Savior

cover

A Private Investigator has to Investigate a Very Different Case

This alien invasion tale has a very different premise. Yes, they have xenomorph DNA, but they were indigenous to Earth. This adventure gets much deeper than the normal.

Daedalus Platinum was a private investigator for children who never received their child support. The reason for his diligence was his father died before he was born, and his mother died during his childbirth. This made him an immediately orphaned only child. His parents never got a chance to care for him, so why should a living neglectful parent have that choice?

One day his police contact sopped helping him. He found out why. There was a much more important police matter at hand. People were being disintegrated!

Detective Sandoval told him to stay out of it, but if this disturbance was stopping his only lead giver, he had to participate. He had to get his leads in order to eat.

What he discovered went way deeper than a routine murder case. The people were being disintegrated by aliens! Well, not aliens. Xenomorph/human hybrids was more appropriate.

Follow Daedalus Platinum, Detective Barret, and Detective Sandoval on a wild adventure of saving Earth in The Platinum Retriever: Earth’s Unexpected Savior.

In this science fiction alien invasion thriller, you’ll get:

  • Wild action, intrigue, and adventure
  • Another concept of aliens invading
  • Martial arts
  • An ethnic mix of heroes
  • Elements of death and bereavement to drive the story
  • Certain military aspects

cover

Are you overweight and feeling overwhelmed about which direction to go? Are you tired of trying and failing the latest sure weight loss programs that leave you weighing more than you started? Tired of feeling like a prisoner to your diet but don’t have the time to fix it? 

Just know that you are not alone. We all are struggling with these same issues of improving our diet and health. As we age and take on more responsibilities, it becomes difficult to eat healthy in a way that fits into our lives.

Its time to escape your internal prison and start living your best life now, and you hold the key.

Here is the bottom line: No one is coming to fix your diet and save you. To change your nutrition and health is 100%, your responsibility. Here is another fact: You can accomplish amazing things that you set your mind to achieving; it all starts with you changing how you think. Anything that you think about consistently, you will act out in your life. Anything that you do invariably will lead to habit formation, which is how you became a prisoner to your diet in the first place, bad nutrition ideas.

So if you are up to here with feeling defeat, overweight, depressed, and overwhelmed, you can become your self-health coach and make it out. How do I know this to be true? Because I have been there myself, obese, depressed, and confused with no direction about how to change my diet and, more importantly, my life.

Until one day I said enough is enough, I can’t live like this anymore. With a negative environment around me and only my faith in God and my son to inspire me, I made it out of my self-made prison, called my body. Then I came back to show other patients like myself at my office “The Never Stop Learning Center for Primary Care” the steps I took, and to my amazement, it worked for them as well. Not only did they lose weight, but they found the same joy and peace I experienced.
