The Korean CIA Director is killed by a North Korean assassin. Counterfeiting, drugs, and weapons of terror finance the North Korean government. Three Air Force Pararescuemen and a CIA Officer join with the South Korean 707th Brigade, a team of female assassins, to form a team, known only by President Reagan and CIA Director Casey, as "the Silent Six." Their task: the destruction of the North Korean gangster regime. “The Silent Six” is the ultimate Special Operations Team.
Paul Murphy is a retired educator. The father of three grown children he recently moved to Southport with his wife, Shirley.
He graduated from The Ohio State University in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. He then obtained his Masters in Education from Bowling Green State University in 1970.
Paul possesses more than thirty years experience in public education as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal, culminating with sixteen years as superintendent of schools in several communities.
After he retired, Paul’s first task was to write the Christian fiction novel, The 13th Apostle, published by Evergreen Press. He is also the author of two murder mysteries, Time in the Mirror and Golden Rule Days.
He is a twenty-five year member of Rotary International. Paul has served in various capacities in two Lutheran churches. His love of Jesus prompted his writing The 13th Apostle and its sequel, Angel Assignment: The White House.
An accidental stumble by a Secret Service agent leaves the country’s leaders exposed for a split second. A shot rings out: an instant later, the Vice President of the United States is dead, and the First Lady is mysteriously wounded. While a shaken President sits beside his injured wife considering resignation, the fiend behind the assassination attempt ramps up a smear campaign calculated to initiate impeachment, and orders his henchmen to scare off—kill, if necessary—a troublesome reporter determined to report only the facts. Still not satisfied, the evil-doer funds Al-Qaeda in a conspiracy to bring both America and its President to their knees. The terrorist attacks are executed with near-perfect precision: as an airplane spews a deadly new strain of anthrax over a crowd of over 100,000 unsuspecting football fans, Al-Qaeda members gun down random individuals at other nationally recognized gridiron venues.
The enemy’s scheme is working: the President trusts no one except family and Secret Service agents. As rumors and death swirl about the nation’s leader, the pressure to apprehend the perpetrators of these heinous crimes and name a new vice-president becomes almost unbearable. Prayer brings the President little comfort, for his faith has waned over the years, and he no longer believes in his religious heritage. As he flies off to a secret retreat, the President recalls his father’s and grandfather’s tales of “the thirteenth apostle” and the letters Gamaliel supposedly wrote, and rejects them once again as make-believe. But God has a revelation in store for him, and what he learns will be instrumental in his fight against his evil adversary.
“Paul Murphy is a wonderful story teller. His work in Angel Assignment: The White House grabs you and keeps you until the very end. This is not just a page turner…it’s a page burner. Start it today and you are likely to be up all night and you will be glad for the experience.” Dr. Mark Cress, Founder, Corporate Chaplains of America, Inc.
Finally, a suspense thriller the whole family can enjoy and talk about. A book for all ages, Angel Assignment: The White House, is a modern day novel featuring the president as the good guy, and a bunch of bad guys to fill out the roster. A good story to talk about with family and students. A great, what if. Susan Warren Books 'n Stuff
Carol Mays has resided in seven states and sought truth through many religious and philosophical traditions. Throughout her life, she has been strongly drawn toward beauty in all its forms. She has been writing poetry for 47 years and has published several other books, including Poems of Peace and Renewal and Stardust, Shadows, and Secrets. The latter discusses the process of discovering and creating intrigue and enchantment in life. It also includes a novella in the magical realism vein.
Richard Bachtold has passionately followed his calling to poetry for over 30 years. He lives a simple lifestyle on a beloved two-acre homestead in rural Hardwick, Massachusetts. For the most part, inspiration for his creative work comes from the beautiful natural landscape which surrounds him. For many years, he has independently studied the poetical process and the poetical heritage. He has self-published four books of poetry, the most recent compilation being Poems of the One.
Nina Andersen is a poet who's search for truth and God has led her into realms of spiritual experiences, leading to spiritual knowledge and soul enlightenment. The visions and intensity of her experiences are expressed through her poems, in her desire to bring spirituality and enlightenment to others. Nina lives in Hardwick, Massachusetts, in a yellow-windowed house, surrounded by nature, flowers, and woodland. She is a poet, mystic, and therapist, and she teaches Critical Thinking and Problem Solving at a community college in Worcester.
Ninety soul-stirring poems by three authors are woven together in this beautiful, uplifting book. The writing is clear, sparkling, sophisticated, heart-felt, and non-dogmatic. Offered as a vital counterpoint to a world rife with anxiety, strife, divisions, confusion, uprootedness, and fear, the book's themes include natural connections, identities, relationships, time, eternity, visions, dreams, and fantasies.
Pain is something Carol puts her hands on every day. With training and experience, it is sometimes obvious that the pain that troubles a person has roots deeper than the pain that presents.
Sometimes, it is quite simply a postural fault, especially as we all crunch ourselves in front of computers for hours on end, whether we are working or playing.
Carol has been doing hands on work with clients for over 20 years and became a licensed massage therapist in 2006 with well over 2000 hours of training and thousands more in experience and learning. Her desire to help with her clients' healing probably stems from a family history of migraines, her mother's background in nursing and her father's in spiritual care.
This is a straight forward look at the most common, "every day" injuries and pains that tend to present in the offices of doctors, physios and other manual therapists.
Carol writes in a light hearted, clear style. Medical terminology is explained simply and some of the most obvious reasons for pain are illuminated. Headaches, knee pain, and back pain are common to many people. This book helps you to pinpoint what's hurting and why.
Tina is an early school leaver who used to be thrown out of class for laughing too much. She's an unschooler at heart and an ungraduate who made her own education in life, she thanks everyone she's ever met, they all taught her something. She landed on Earth in Karlskoga, Sweden, 1969 and has tried to adjust ever since. Tina's writing takes her off the beaten track and the best writing advice she ever got was, write what you want to find out more about. She lives in Dublin, Ireland with her non-traditional family.
This story is rewritten more times than Tina can remember, it’s her learning to write in English story and she’s immensely proud for not giving up, but she has given in to the fact that she does tell a story differently. Tina loves dialogue, a lot, and she doesn’t pay attention to details as much as maybe she should, she likes the bigger picture, and for her deep hearted, radically honest conversations are it.
Do you dare to follow your heart when school tells you to follow the rules?
When Milla is sent(enced) to six years in secondary school her unrecognised school-itis gets worse.
“It’s a real disease,” Milla insists who has survived early puberty and two uncompleted suicides due to being forced to become who she isn’t.
“No, I’m not bullied, sometimes it’s “just” school.”
But she can’t let her parents go to prison again. She meets Sky, a homeschooled, disabled boy who self medicates on laughter and Sunny, a girl of unusual origin who insists she’s Milla’s guardian angel. “You’re more powerful than you know,” she says and Milla listens as the animals whose powers she has always been fascinated by suddenly comes to life through her.
Together with her Irish twin brother, Torsten, the foursome take on school in a battle to regain ownership of their own lives.
In this often outlandish story, four teens already of age, fight against school as the only option to journey through the start of life, but violence, punishments and threats can change minds, will it change theirs?
Will Milla be allowed to become who she is or made to fall back into line and follow the mass schooling?
The story draws heavily from my various careers in publishing, media, and academia. Several of my screenwriting instructors have reviewed drafts, including Tal McThenia (Gotham Writers, NYC). Tal writes: “What comes roaring through, each and every scene, is not just a sharp wit and an ear/eye for emotional nuance… but a heartfelt connection with the protagonist and her struggle.”
I’ve written professionally for a national audience for many years. Publications include children’s books for HarperCollins, a book about how technology can help struggling readers and writers ("Literacy Online, Heinemann), and an educational book for Harvard Education Publishers that I am co-authoring with an award-winning teacher in the U.K. (see www.juliemwood.com). I’ve also been on the faculty at Harvard University, an experience that offers endless material for fiction writers.
The locations serve as characters in and of themselves. Those who share my affection for Boston will appreciate the scenes that take place at the Copley Plaza Hotel, Fenway Park (with God) and Johanna's climb to the top of the Citco sign. This is the city my ancestors settled in three generations ago, driven out of Ireland by the Potato Famine. It's my tribute to them.
NOTES FROM HELL’S KITCHEN, an update of the classic tale of Faust, is a romantic comedy/satire about an aspiring media diva, Dr. Johanna Lucky, who must find a way out of the pact she’s made with the Devil or else civilization as we know it will descend into a modern-day version of Hell.
Hell, as we come to know it, is a result of Johanna’s invention—“Thrill TV.” This entertainment experience is so seductive that people lose their souls as they succumb to its promise of wish fulfillment––regardless of the cost.
God arranges a meeting with Johanna to tell her she is furious about her pact with the Devil and insists that she destroy it. Johanna does. But the fallout of this take down wreaks havoc with the Devil, her investors, and her “deep throat” at MIT--the mastermind behind “Thrill TV.”
The location for NOTES FROM HELL’S KITCHEN spans New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, the glittery world of the high-tech industry, and Boston’s Beacon Hill and Fenway Park.
By the end of the screenplay we’ve seen Johanna have it all, lose it, and win it back by doing exactly what the Devil has forbidden--falling in love with Barney, the man whose heart she has routinely trampled.

A.G. Henley is the author of the BRILLIANT DARKNESS series. The first book in the series, THE SCOURGE, was a finalist for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award. A.G. is also a clinical psychologist, which means people either tell her their life stories on airplanes, or avoid her at parties when they've had too much to drink. Neither of which she minds. When she's not writing fiction or shrinking heads, she can be found herding her children and their scruffy dog, Guapo, to various activities while trying to remember whatever she's inevitably forgotten to tell her husband. She lives in Denver, Colorado. Learn more at aghenley.com
Read The Defiance (Brilliant Darkness, #2), the highly anticipated sequel to THE SCOURGE (Brilliant Darkness, #1), a 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award Finalist! THE FIRE SISTERS (Brilliant Darkness #3 coming fall 2015!)
It hasn’t been long since Fennel, a Sightless Groundling, and Peree, her Lofty Keeper, fell in love and learned the truth: the Scourge, and their world, is not what it seems.
Fenn and Peree are determined to guide their people to the protected village of Koolkuna, but first they must convince them that everything they believe is a lie. An impossible task, especially when someone seems hell-bent to try anything—even animal sacrifice and arson—to destroy the couple’s new bond and crush the frail truce between the Groundlings and the Lofties. Not everyone wants to uproot their lives in the forest, and those who stay behind will be left terribly vulnerable.
Fenn and Peree’s resolve to be together despite their people’s disapproval, and the constant threat of the Scourge’s return, pushes both groups to the breaking point. Unable to tell friend from foe, Fenn must again decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to ensure the people of the forest’s future.
Only this time, the price of peace may be too high to bear.

This is the first comparative study on political parties in Southeast Asia covering eight out of the ten ASEAN countries. Feudal Brunei Darussalam has no parties and for Laos we could not find a scholar willing or allowed to join our group.
The book is dedicated to anyone interested or active in party politics in the region.
Southeast Asia is an economic power house of sorts with fledgling and often volatile political systems. Political parties and their leaders make decisions on behalf of more than 600 million people with a far reaching impact also on other parts of the world. This is why understanding the driving forces in and behind Southeast Asia’s political parties is important.
This book provides a fresh look into organization and internal mechanisms of the main political parties, how they function on the ground, how they hold together, and how their leadership systems work. Internal competition and candidate selection, campaign strategies and party finances, money politics and career opportunities are a special focus in the eight country chapters.
While showing the difference between classical party models and the reality on the ground in Southeast Asia, the book provides broad information on party politics in the region, adding a practical view to the vast and often rather theory-loaded scholarly literature. It intends to reach out to party members and activists, journalists and other political observers, and to anybody interested in Southeast Asian politics.

The author was born a “middle class,” over-privileged WASP in 1943. and “came out” into gay life in 1965. After an internship at a major hospital in Cleveland, she graduated from Kent State University in May of 1970 with a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology, and also a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a general minor. She became a Jew-by-Choice in 1973. She is a proud retired member of 1199SEIU, the National Healthcare Workers Union, and participated in the great 1984 Hospital Strike in NYC. She is also a Wobblie.
Barbara G Louise is an Empath, her own feelings always strongly affected by the presence of other beings (usually human, although she can feel other mammals too, like horses, cats dogs, and dolphins). While writing The Rabble and the Rich, she finally had to realize she had to do the creative part physically alone, in order to discover, without the emotional input of anyone else’s worldview, exactly what she personally had to say about capitalism, the necessity for revolution, Marxism, government, and anarkhism. She knows her communist friends will disagree with her, and most other anarkhists also. Which is why she had to find her own ideas and opinions.
Barbara conceives of her potential audience as “middle class” or formerly “middle class” mostly-white people who are disgusted by our current economic system and disenchanted with the failed idea of the “American dream,” whereby we were all supposed to work hard and grow into a comfortable life free of hunger, economic worry, and random violence (regardless of skin colour), where we could raise our children in safety. She cannot pretend to be anything other than what she is: a white, anti-Racist, formerly “middle class” person who can speak most genuinely to other “middle Class” people.
Since she was born in 1943, she is not young. For most of her life, the twenty-first century was the far future. ((She can even remember when 1976 was the ‘far’ future.)) She did not grow up with the InterNet.
So she was at first reluctant to publish electronically. To her, and to most people her age, a book is bound hardcopy she can decoratively store on a bookshelf, hold in her hands, and manually turn the pages with more than a casual flick of her fingers.
But as a long time reader of science fiction, Barbara must admit, and rejoice, that the future is here now. To the people of the twenty-first century, the InterNet is Reality. She even has a connection in her house. Although she has plenty of hardcopies on her bookshelves, her most useful dictionary is online, so she can most quickly consult it while she is writing with her computer on her lap.
Having finished the Work which serves as the culmination of her lifetime of reading, thinking about politics and philosophy — and engaging in whatever progressive activism she was not too cowardly to commit — she began the soul-numbing process of trying to break into print without any interest in, or talent for, writing short stories to introduce herself to readers in her genre. Considering the difficulty an unknown new writer has in finding a publisher these days, especially for a book with a bluntly anti-capitalist theme, Barbara despaired of getting her novel published anytime before she died.
Then one night after Erev Rosh Hashannah services at her synagogue, someone suggested that the visiting Cantor — Bonnie J. Gordon, whose delightful retelling of the Exodus story — Escape from Goshen — for children, can be found on Amazon for Kindle (and in paperback) — could tell her how to publish online, so Barbara asked her how, and she did.
There is a song from the sixties or seventies, from the time when Barbara was “officially” involved with Gay Liberation:
It isn’t nice to block the doorway,
It isn’t nice to go to jail.
There are nicer ways to do it
But the nice ways always fail.
Of course, escape from the life-smothering excesses of capitalism is only necessary in the alternate universe of The Rabble and the Rich. In our universe, our relatively tiny corner of the Multiverse, capitalism is the greatest economic system the human species has ever produced. You better believe it. Anyone can get rich!
Only losers, like Barbara G Louise, who has no interest in, and no talent for, the thieving manipulations of high finance, cannot get rich and join the storied ‘1%’ who own our supposedly democratic government and manipulate it to further their own selfish financial interests, no matter how the losers suffer while their totally-unimportant qualities of life plummet as the rich get richer.
So, since Barbara is too old to survive arrest and torture by armed and armored agents of the federal or state governments, the reader will please remember that no revolution (especially by the Left) is necessary in our universe, absolutely none. Barbara is definitely not advocating a Leftist revolution.
Capitalism is the end of history. Revolution is unneeded, and impossible. You better believe it.

DOCUMENTS of the PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF NORTH AMERICA is a collection of non-narrative writing which supplements the three books of the controversial RABBLE AND THE RICH Trilogy, the tale of an alternative universe — a universe nothing like our own, of course — where the terrible division between the rich capitalists and the Working Class has reached its climax.
Truth in Advertising compels the author to reveal that each section of DOCUMRNTS has been published before, in the Xtra areas at the back of the books of the Trilogy, THE RABBLE AND THE RICH, although there have been extensive additions to A COLLECTION OF REBELS since the Trilogy was first published.
The DOCUMENTS excerpted from the controversial speculative-fiction trilogy-novel, The RABBLE AND THE RICH, are, first of all, THE CONSTITUTION OF THE PEOPLE’S SOLIDARITY OF NORTH AMERICA, wherein the customs and ideology of a future free, anarkhist society are enumerated and established.
Also included is an extensive BIBLIOGRAPHY OF SPECULATIVE FICTION AND LEFT-LEANING BOOKS which inspired and educated the author of The RABBLE AND THE RICH, as well as A COLLECTION OF REBELS, including Val Plumwood, Emma Goldman, Assata Shakur, Frederick Douglass, Big Bill Haywood, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Angela Davis, James Tiptree Jr, Ursula K. LeGuin, Urvashi Vaid, Emiliano Zapata, and Cindy Sheehan, as well as further activists, anarchists, socialists, communists, and others in our universe who have contributed to the evolutionary and cultural trend towards a civilization free from capitalism and its ills.

The Return is his first novel in the planned series of military thrillers featuring Paul Stanton, SAS.
Bernard Cornwell says of The Return:
"A novel of brutal authenticity, unflinching realism and compelling story-telling. This is an enormously impressive debut and I look forward to more of Paul Stanton’s exploits!"
Introducing a new, modern day action hero, Paul Stanton, SAS
When the IRA mount a blitzkrieg attack on one of his operational bases and kill his men, Major Paul Stanton knows his security has been compromised. But proving it and then finding those responsible is another matter.
Given the chance to do so, but with no safety net if he fails, Stanton goes undercover. He tracks his targets from Bandit Country and the IRA strongholds of West Belfast into the South. His trail takes him to the wrecked Wall Zone in Cold War Berlin, and here he delivers the return.
The Return is the first in the new series: The Paul Stanton novels.

Michael Segal è nato nel 1974 e fa l'attore. L'idea di questo libro nacque nel 1997 al manifestarsi della sua prima esperienza paranormale. Seguirono altri episodi che fecero nascere l'idea di questo romanzo che, per maturità artistica, ha visto la luce solo di recente.
Un thriller paranormale con un ritmo serratissimo. Dante, un poliziotto devastato psicologicamente ma dotato di inquietanti poteri, è chiamato ad affrontare uno spietato assassino che rivela ben presto la sua vera natura.
Insieme al suo fidato compagno Virgil e l'utilizzo di una particolare droga chiamata "Divina Commedia" che gli permette di amplificare le sue capacità soprannaturali, i due si scontreranno con una realtà inaspettata e pericolosamente mortale.
Thormod Morrisson is a runester and tresmiðr (woodcarver) of Norse Scottish extraction with a long interest in Norse, Pictish, Gaelic and Far Eastern traditions. He established Thor’s Hammer Woodcraft, based in Scotland and produces traditionally made runes and various other heiðinn carvings.
The Viking Runes is a study of the ancient Norse fuþark script used in everyday inscriptions, carved memorials and divination. It covers the Elder fuþark as well as the Víking fuþark of the Norðreyjar (Shetland and Orkney), the Suðreyjar (the Hebrides), Norse Scotland and the wider Víking world.
With references to Norse and Celtic history, myth and saga, the Norse Gaelic tradition and warrior mysteries, this book covers the origins of the runic fuþark, inscriptions and secret codes, how to carve the runes, how to read them, the Norse gods and beings of the elder world, the practices of shape-changing, galdrar (magical song), spá (prophecy) and seiðr (trance magic), animal cults and the down to earth lore found in Old Norse verse. This book should be useful for anyone seeking to expand their knowledge of the runes and more.
There is no other medium that feeds the soul and captures the imagination like a good book. When the weight of the world presses down on each of us, or we simply need an enjoyable break from a busy and harried life, a book can transport us to places of dreams, incredible imagination, and enlghtenment. As has everyone, I have experienced many highs and lows in my life. This is reflected in my writing by trying to be true to human experiences: love and hate, incredible joy and heart-breaking sorrow, open-mindedness, bigotry, the wonders of our natural world, the astonishing things to be learned beyond our physical senses, and the redeeming and universal qualities of "goodness".
I loved my years in school and eventually earned a university degree in English Education for K-12, and a second in Creative Writing. While teaching kids of all ages I was impressed by how smart, funny, creative and resilent they could be even in the toughest of curcumstances. Knowing the benefit of growing up loving to read anything and everything, I endeavored to instill the love of reading (and writing) in my own children, as well as the many students I was honored to teach.
I began writing before I had a whisker on my face. I have never stopped writing..whether short stories, essays, news articles, technical papers, magazine pieces, plays, a sreenplay, advertising, or simply recording my dreams in a journal. I have done stints as a teacher, an oral storyteller, a recording engineer, a songwriter and musician, a poet, a blue collar worker, and more...all the while crafting my style, raising my huge family (and growing a huge garden to feed all those mouths). I have kept really busy...and in doing so I have never been bored...and it has given me much opportunity to keep my ear to the world and my eyes to the rythym of the hopes and dreams of people.
I am happily married for 43 years to my high school sweetheart, the father of 7 children, and "Papa" to my 25 grandchildren ages 22 to a few months. There is no way (and I wouldn't have it any other way!) to not be immersed in the creative and wondrous world of children. For the last 3 years I have enjoyed being a real bearded Santa for the children of our area. I always spend time with the children and enjoy answering their Santa, Reindeer, and Elf questions. I think I could write a book about all the interesting and funny things that I have heard the children say to me as Santa.
I wrote the first Laser O'Hara book "The Hole In Eighth Level" for my children and grandchildren (my best and greatest critics) and have passed it on to you. I am currently working on the 2nd and 3rd of 7 books in the Laser O'Hara series, and finishing up a picture book for the little ones. I certainly don't shy away from the complicated questions that are part of our culture and world, but believe that children should be well-rounded and given the chance to explore a bit of philosophy, religion, mythology, mystery,and universal human dramas and dilemmas. I have not failed if I can engage the reader...and inspire a bit of thought, a smidgin of inspiration, and a good serving of entertainment. So...
The Laser O'Hara Series will be great reading for older children and young adults. I hope that parents will enjoy reading to their younger children the escapades of Laser and his sister Gabby, as they grow up, have fun adventures, and are challenged with everyday life and some tough decisions and incredible experiences in some not so everyday places.
Laser O'Hara and his younger sister Gabby find themselves in a dire predicament after their family has been relocated, discovered, and then threatened because of the research of their long missing scientist father. Luckily, through instructions his Dad has left coded and hidden for him in case of such a threat, Laser is able to build an L.D.D., a machine that makes it possible to travel inter-dimensional levels and to find and rescue their trapped father. Exciting ,sometimes scary, and even humorous events unfold when they unexpectedly pick up a couple of unplanned travelers. The greatest challenge for the kids is to stop an evil plan from collapsing all the levels and ultimately bringing about the destruction of the multiple worlds where they have learned to love and trust themselves and other wonderfully diverse beings. This book is a great triumph for illustrating the ongoing battle between good and evil...the dynamics of love and hate...and the complexities that often come with discerning the difference. You will want to continue on with Laser and Gabby as they pursue more adventures together discovering, shedding light on, and solving universal mysteries and intriguing enigma and puzzles.
Pain is something Carol puts her hands on every day. With training and experience, it is sometimes obvious that the pain that troubles the person has roots deeper than the pain that presents.
Sometimes, it is quite simply a postural fault, especially as we all crunch ourselves in front of computers for hours on end, whether we are working or playing. Often the pain comes from a deeper source, such as family stories, fear over world events, personal trauma, unforgiveness and a host of negative emotions.
Carol has been doing hands on work with clients for over 20 years and became a licensed massage therapist in 2006 with over 2000 hours of training and thousands more in experience and learning. Her desire to help with her clients' healing probably stems from a family history of migraines, her mother's background in nursing and her father's in spiritual care.
This book is a troubleshooting guide to the body, specifically the body's pain.
It won't make you a doctor or therapist over night, but it will teach you a little about how the body perceives pain. There are many sources of pain, not all of them physical. We will look at how the mind and body are closely related and how one affects the other. We'll also look at how to affect one by using the other.
This is a book about "every day" pain, not a medical journal or self-diagnostic tool. It is easy to read, with a clear and light style that will help you discover some of the less obvious sources of pain in your daily life.
I am a laissez faire guy. I oppose government intervention of any kind. I disagree with utilitarianism. I use profit to revamp all existing economic theories.
Are you a student (or professor) of Economics? if so, do you know that most of the economic theories are wrong. After reading this booklet, you should understand why economists disputes among themselves, why 10 economists come up with 11 recommendation, and that they are all wrong.
Daniel Raynes was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1984. With a lifelong passion for reading and writing he won multiple awards in high school and received a scholarship to Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, which hands out the Sophie Kerr Prize; the largest undergraduate literary award in the country. While a student there, he studied poetry, short stories, plays, screenplays, and novels. Screenplays may have been Daniel’s first love, but novels ended up as his true love.
After taking a long (too long!) absence from his dream of being a writer, Daniel has finally begun to write again. This book was largely written not only to help others, but to help himself remember everything he had learned and to shake off the rust from his finger tips.

Aubrey Glen Mobley was born in the northeast corner of the state of Arkansas. When he was five years old he moved to the state of Arizona.
There he met an Indian boy named Petie Martinez. Although Glen was only in the first grade, he was fascinated by his Indian friend. One day, Glen, went with his mother and father, to the Indian reservation, to meet the real American Indian. They even went to the mountains, where they explored the village of the cliff dwellers; an awesome sight.
He returned to Arkansas five years later, where he attended Lafe High School. After graduation he went to Flint, Michigan, where he got a job at the Fisher Body plant, later named the Chevrolet Truck and Bus plant. He retired in 1995 and returned to northeast Arkansas, where he purchased the Spirit Lake property.
The original lake, built by beaver, was destroyed in the 1800’s, when loggers cleared the land of all the trees.
In 1980, Spirit Lake Development Corporation rebuilt the lake, renaming it Spirit Lake. Reaganomics halted any further development of the property.
In 1995, Glen learned he had Indian blood. His great grandmother was full-blooded Quapaw Indian. With that knowledge and a story to tell, he began to research his heritage. With the help of Bill Jones, the story has now been told.
This story is about the Quapaw Indians that lived on Spirit
Lake in the 1500s.
This is the story of a young Quapaw Indian boy who lived in northeast Arkansas, just north of the present day city of Pocahontas, in the year 1541, and how his life was drastically changed by events not of his choosing. How he took on the mighty De Soto and his entire army, as he sought revenge for what De Soto had done to his people. He was the last of his tribe, and he would slay the famous conquistador, De Soto. Kyota was transformed from a young boy, who simply wished to be a great hunter, into a great warrior, and the legend of Spirit Lake.
