When novice monk Tenzin Dorje is told by his lama that the Red Army is invading Tibet, his country’s darkest moment paradoxically gives him a sense of purpose like no other. He accepts a mission to carry two ancient, secret texts across the Himalayas to safety.
Half a century later, in a paradox of similarly troubling circumstances, Matt Lester is called upon to convey his own particular wisdom as a scientist, when Matt’s nanotech project is mysteriously moved from London to a research incubator in Los Angeles.
Tenzin and Matt embark on parallel adventures which have spine-chilling connections. Tenzin’s perilous journey through the Himalayas, amid increasing physical hardship and the ever-present horror of Red Army capture, is mirrored by Matt’s contemporary, but no less traumatic challenges, as his passionate relationship with his fiancée, Isabella, and his high flying career undergo escalating crises.
It is at the moment when both Tenzin and Matt face catastrophe that their stories converge, spectacularly transforming our understanding of all that has gone before.

When a frightened young outlaw joins a gang of violent criminals their names – against a backdrop of death, dishonour, brotherhood, and love – will become legend.
ENGLAND AD 1321
After viciously assaulting a corrupt but powerful clergyman Robin Hood flees the only home he has ever known in Wakefield, Yorkshire. Becoming a member of a notorious band of outlaws, Hood and his new companions – including John Little and Will Scaflock – hide out in the great forests of Barnsdale, fighting for their very existence as the law hunts them down like animals.
When they are betrayed, and their harsh lives become even more unbearable, the band of friends seeks bloody vengeance.
Meanwhile, the country is in turmoil, as many of the powerful lords strive to undermine King Edward II’s rule until, inevitably, rebellion becomes a reality and the increasingly deadly yeoman outlaw from Wakefield finds his fate bound up with that of a Hospitaller Knight…
“Wolf’s Head” brings the brutality, injustice and intensity of medieval England vividly to life, and marks the beginning of a thrilling new historical fiction series in the style of Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow.

Contents: The Green Knight – Space Lore I – Near the border between two kingdoms, a vessel full of innocent passengers is destroyed. While the extent of the impending retaliation is unknown, its inevitability is not. Galactic war is approaching. In a seedy bar in a distant corner of the solar system, a knight clad entirely in green armor puts forth a grisly challenge. The only person to accept the knight’s game is a woman who spends her time drinking and thieving. These two acts, occurring in different parts of the galaxy, both lead to the same spot: the planet that will soon fall under attack.
The Excalibur – Space Lore II – Six years ago, two fleets met in a battle that changed the course of the galaxy. In the time since, the CasterLan Kingdom and the Vonnegan Empire have been rebuilding their forces. The clock is ticking down to another inevitable confrontation. In the face of insurmountable odds, Vere CasterLan’s only hope lies in freeing a legendary weapon from the stone that encases it. It has been said that whoever can free the Excalibur will possess unimaginable power. The only problem, as certain death approaches, is that for thousands of years no one has been able to figure out how to release the Excalibur from the asteroid surrounding it.
The Round Table – Space Lore III – The CasterLan forces have withdrawn to the edges of the solar system. Vere CasterLan, their leader, struggles to survive in the galaxy’s most feared prison. Meanwhile, the Vonnegan Empire looks to find more planets to rule over. Seeing firsthand the cruelty and suffering that the Vonnegan Empire is capable of, Vere begins to understand that only one thing that can bring peace to the galaxy and stop Mowbray Vonnegan once and for all. It’s a simple notion, only three words: the Round Table. But as the call goes out for armies from every corner of space to unite against a common evil, will anyone listen to a ruler who has already lost everything she once had?
(Rhyming book suitable for Toddlers, Preschoolers, Ages 1-6)

Inspirational books may provide effective motivation, but often “preach to the choir”. In our multicultural and scientific age, and with the rise and dominance of multi-national corporations, more innovative and inclusive approaches are essential to address the enormity of the issues faced by humanity. To answer this need, Business & Spirituality “preaches to the workplace”, employing an omni-denominational voice. It speaks to a wide audience: thought leaders, knowledge workers, entrepreneurs, executives, creatives, engineers, staff members, volunteers, and homemakers can all gain new insights for synchronizing personal evolution with professional development, the advancement of groups, and the upliftment of our world.
The alluring topics of happiness and prosperity are metaphorical honey, summoning readers toward the higher purpose of self-realization. In this comprehensive work, ageless spiritual teachings and philosophies are explored in conjunction with current studies in exact science and psychology. Abstractions are fashioned into applicable tools and valuable techniques for guiding visions, thoughts, and actions. These powerful transformative technologies can be utilized by individuals and groups in non-dogmatic and non-religious ways that are fully compatible with the ordinarily secular work environment. Mindful and steady use of the suggested methods can elevate organizations and societies into the realm of three-dimensional profitability, with wide-ranging benefits for people and our home Planet.
The textual content of Business & Spirituality is brought to life with over fifty inspiring images and illustrative diagrams. Author, Justin S. Grant, who holds an MA in Transformational Psychology (the science of the soul and mind), writes in a clear and uplifting style that renders specific teachings more universal, the mysterious world more accessible, and the mystical way more practical.
Topics and techniques include:
– Happiness in Relation to Health, Wealth, & Gratitude – The Interrelationship Between Environment, Wellbeing, & Profitability – The Illuminating Force of Education – New Era Teachings – The Interrelationship Between Humanity, Society, & Divinity – Buddhist Philosophy in the Multicultural World – Cult vs. Culture – The Ascent of Women & Societal Holism – The Interrelationship Between Philosophy, Religion, & Science – Meditation, Visualization, & Invocation – The Evolving Planetary Plan
China Bohannon and her dog are enjoying a peaceful, if boring winter day, when a gentleman bursts into the Doyle & Howe Detective Agency wishing to engage her services as a detective. His fiancée’s sister has been kidnapped and a substantial ransom demanded. There’s just one problem. The client thinks it’s possible he’s being bamboozled, because events don’t quite add up.
The client? None other than Sepp Amsel, a fabulously successful gambling hall and saloon-keeper entrepreneur, who is about to become the bridegroom in the most public wedding ever to take place in wild and woolly Spokane, Washington.
With funds running a little short at the Doyle & Howe Detective Agency, China can’t resist getting involved, especially since a friend has recommended her services to Amsel. However, the clock is ticking. The ransom is due on Wednesday and it’s already Monday. China’s investigation begins with the closest thing to a witness she has, the prospective bride. With no good answers to her questions, she, too, starts to wonder if Sepp Amsel’s mail-order bride is not quite what she seems.
It isn’t long until murder becomes part of the equation. First a bellhop, then a tailor. Who will be next? China had better find out soon, before she, too, becomes targeted for murder.
