Wanderlost

Simon Williams is plagued by a recurring nightmare where he goes on a long hike. But no matter how far he walks, he can never get away from his past.

As a young man he was scarred for life. If you passed him on the street, he might not stand out. There is nothing exceptionally notable about his appearance. However, he carries a secret torment that will one day change everything, not just for him.

As he turns 50, Simon looks back on the times of escape in his life that have taken him to Japan, India, Thailand, Greece, South Africa, and South America. This man has traveled to all the places most people want to go, but suffered from the one emotion that people do not.

An inspired memoir about an unusual life from a unique story teller. That is both hilariously funny and yet deeply thought provoking of what suppressing pain and anger can do to an ordinary man.

Eventually, our past catches up to all of us.


Meet Simon Williams

Simon Williams is an author who believes in the adage, write what you know. So, his two memoir series, TORN and WANDERLOST, encapsulate the three themes he knows best in this world, fear, regret, and inspiration.

Life has not been fair to Simon, on many levels, but his honest and forthright openness on the issues that have dogged him as he found a determination to continue fighting for the one thing in his life that is most important to him and that still eludes him to this day.

Born in a small, dry town in Australia, after residing in over 45 different locations, Simon now calls Miami, Florida home.

His books are always tinged with sufficient humorous relief to keep uplifting readers as they must follow Simon through what have been some extremely harrowing exploits over his 50 years.

Meet Jane N. Hughes

Hi, Jane N. Hughes here a new author based in Melbourne Australia. I have just published my first book based on a lifetime dream vacation to South America and Antarctica then getting caught on the covid-19 and the events which unfolded after that. As a first author I enjoyed writing the book and wanted to share my story with others. I hope you enjoy reading the book and provide honest reviews.

The cornerstone of courage is optimism.

In 1992, at the end of the Cold War, Steven Myers became the first American since Charles Lindbergh in 1931, to pilot an aircraft into the Russian Kamchatka peninsula. There he formed one of the first post-Soviet era joint ventures—a pioneering, expansive, business enterprise with the potential to transform the lives of the people of the Russian Far East. 
 
Steve’s remarkable true story recounts the dramatic adventure, courageous entrepreneurship, and intrigue in the creation of a breakthrough business in a remote corner of the world, a wonderous place few people have been to or know anything about.

The underlying theme of the story is the clash of two vastly different cultures:   Americans, with go-for-broke, entrepreneurial “can do” attitudes, and Russians with a long, painful history of constraining rules, risk aversion, and fear. 

After years of hard work, just as the enterprise is about to achieve breakthrough success, an unexpected warning by US government agents alerts Myers that his life is in danger if he continues with his business activities in Russia. How he reacts, and what he does next, provides a gripping, dramatic climax to the story. 
 
 A timeless exploration of human conflict, determination, and power, this book will inspire adventurers, aviators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, politicians, and diplomats to push past their fears and take command of their dreams. After all, “the cornerstone of courage is optimism.”

Caged Boy Sings: A Memoir

NEW EDITION

In this raw and oftentimes brutal experimental memoir, Cameron Beyrent paints a vivid landscape of mental illness as he recounts the terrifying reactions he had to the pills meant to cure it.

Caged Boy Sings is a mind-altering, stiletto-throwing, unmedicated look inside the brain of author Cameron Beyrent.

As the story of Caged Boy Sings goes off the rails right out of the gate, the narrative dips into universes filled with characters that you never expected to meet—rent boys, mental patients, strippers, 20-somethings and more. The line between fiction and nonfiction is frequently challenged as the author guides the reader throughout the fragments of his imagination, searching for the shattered pieces of the truth throughout the rooms of his mind.

Caged Boy Sings is a book about the misplaced losers who are constantly wondering about who they’re supposed to be—and the unsung heroes who were put here to help us piece together the puzzle of our identities.

Portions of this book were originally published online and in literary magazines under the moniker “Caged Boy Sings.”

Bucket To Greece Volume 1

Bucket to Greece is a delightfully comical account of a British couple starting over in a new country, complete with imported cats, whilst discovering the joys and pitfalls of adapting to a strange culture.

When our hero, Victor, needs a pseudonym to avoid embarrassing his wife after deciding to pen a book about moving to Greece, he dusts off his original name of V.D. Bucket, the name he was stuck with after being abandoned in a bucket as a baby. As Victor adapts to his adopted homeland he battles an obsession with the exacting hygiene standards he demanded during his illustrious career as a public health inspector against the rather less exacting standards of rural Greece. His attempts to master the complexities of the language lead to a number of embarrassing misunderstandings.

Crossing paths with the local undertaker, Spiros, was a stroke of good luck for Victor and Marigold, since he just happened to have a house to sell in the charming Greek mountain village of Meli. Of course Spiros didn’t explain the strange arrangement of an Albanian living in the stone shed at the bottom of the garden, or mention the old lady’s next door filthy habit of burning plastic every morning. He also failed to mention his late uncle had plunged to his death from the roof terrace, but did a wonderful job of selling them on the spectacular views.

If you’re a fan of Greek travel and culture, then this book is a must.
