Meet Pawel Wegrzyn

Pawel Wegrzyn was a nationally ranked Canadian tennis player and a NCAA Division II scholarship recipient, and even with all that success in tennis-the thing he loves, and dedicated his life to, he would still get abused by his own mind constantly, which made no sense! Through 20 years of coaching tennis, he was also able to witness that the mind suffering wasn’t just an issue for himself, it was there for all his students, and this went way beyond the world of tennis. After that revelation he got interested in meditation, yoga, and the workings of the mind and that’s how Be Human, Not a Zombie was created.

Omega: The Heart and Soul of a War Criminal

The Young Captain Carter leads Omega Squad, a band of British, Special Forces soldiers who are known to teeter between legal and illegal warfare. Omega Squad come face to face with the eccentric and mad, Tarmo Skenev, an arms dealer who has taken former Omega Squad member, turned undercover operative, Riley, prisoner. Just when they believe their mission is over, Omega realise it is only the beginning. As the fight gets bloodier and enemy ties deepen, each member of Omega must face their own demons, coming face to face with their mental health. Who should read this book? Fans of gripping action, heroes to back to the very end and villains to despise. Junkies of thriller, who have no clue what to expect next, the twist in this tale is harsh and lethal. The story is not just another epic action series, it comes with an embedded message of mental health. One of our heroes from Omega Squad, Reed, is an amazing soldier, his skill eclipses all others, yet he is haunted by his past, a tragic accident is relived over and over. Shift, another member of the squad, battles his dissociative identity disorder. In the story, we find out how one particular song turns him into an unhinged, animalistic mad man. Romance is also a key part of this story, a story of love, its trials and tribulations. How even in a world of war and terror, love flourishes and its stubbornness to die. We see both sides of it. A beautiful moment when two souls, destined for one another, finally come face to face, against all odds. Also, the darker side of love. The obsessiveness of it. How an infatuation can blind you and lead you down a path you would not willingly choose to follow. This story will beg its reader to ask themselves, ‘what would I have done in that situation?’. Omega: The Heart and Soul of a War Criminal is an epic story that features, thought-provoking dialogue, a promise of realism and shines a light on the delicate nature of mental health.

Meet Jax Bowman

A twenty-something-year-old relentlessly chasing the dream to create a piece of fiction that does more than tell a story. I first discovered my love for writing during my last year of college, where I studied Creative Media Production, a course I had fallen out of love with. Until I found screenwriting. It was my saving grace and gave me a new-found desire to continue with my college education. I have written a mockumentary/comedy script and an action screenplay. ‘Omega: The Heart and Soul of a War Criminal’ is an adaptation of that same action screenplay. I have spent over a year transforming this humble screenplay into an epic story, which features, thought-provoking dialogue. Characters to fall in love with, and those to despise. A promise of realism. And a shining light on mental health.

Nightlight: Soul Calling, Body Listening, Heart Speaking

In this, my third book, all I can share is those experiences of struggle I’ve had, in four domains. The conflicts have centered around: (1) Loss and Trauma; (2) challenges to find the best Direction, that ‘now, what’ dilemma ; (3) battles to find and empower inner and outer Voice; and (4) conflicts arising from Love, or the appearance of its absence. You will find the four are not distinct entities, but are interwoven with one another. This is so for clients, over the last 50 years, as well. Think of these categories as bumper cars, where when one car hits an obstacle, it sets off a chain reaction. While struggles to survive each experience is painful, it has proven true that the toughest conflicts have been the most prolific seedbed for growth. The urge to grow is embedded in all creation. Blocked growth thwarts development.
