This is a true story reflecting the strife, the agony and the pain of the people of Greece among others who lived under the rule of the Ottoman Empire. There has been a lot of speculation and incorrect information surfacing through the ages. The author of this book spared no opportunity of examining numerous sources and spending additional time (seven years worth) in order to bring to light the truth about a very devastating period of the people involved in the making of this part of history without prejudice. In order for the Ottomans to survive in a hostile world in which they were surrounded by adversaries, they had to employ several unorthodox and at times unacceptable practices not only toward their enslaved subjects, but also toward their own people. Called by their European adversaries “the sick man of Europe” due to their unique and mysterious way of life, they managed to elude everyone and flourish under a harsh environment which others could have not possibly survived. One of the hardships bestowed upon their enslaved people was the abduction of their children in order for them to serve the emperor. This story is about a group of these children (one in particular), and the course of the events which led to a horrible tragedy.

Michael Balian is a teacher and coach from a small Midwestern town. His life is comfortable, his work rewarding. This all changes with the revealing of prophecy which invades his subconscious thought. As he tries to understand the meaning behind these nightly visions, he becomes tied to others. They too have been visited by dreams, only theirs have directed them to him. As disaster invades his world, others prepare a much larger confrontation.

The novel mixes fiction, history and current events to spark discussion, dialogue and contemplation of the dangers which exist today. These threats have been faced before, the only difference is the size and scope of their effectiveness. The tale combines the energies of a group of young adults and powerful men who lead the counter-strike to a terrorist attack meant to bring down democracy and freedom. The students, a mixture of personalities, initiate a world-wide dialogue using the internet to discuss and debate controversial issues. As calamity strikes, the youthful men and women step forward into the role of modern day Crusaders. Supported by men of influence, friends and family the association bonds together to fight for culture and faith. Financed by the rich’s of the primeval Knights Templar, the battle lines are drawn.

The novel combines histories past with a modern apocalyptic assault on Western society. The response is horrific and meant to call attention to man’s inescapable potential. As the Republic falls, its replacement in the novel is left open. Nevertheless, if history repeats itself, the outcome has already been written.

Controversial and philosophic, the author attempts to promote discussion and discourse among those who follow faith and culture. Freedom and choice are at the heart of this story, defending it from the forces of evil, the goal.

Nora Woodford, a slender brown eyed black haired wench, was more amused than offended by handsome James Potter’s indifference to her passionate advances. Little did she know that within the year he would be her husband. Nora was well versed in the art of foreplay, but a babe in arms where true love was concerned.

Self-professed adventurer and soldier of fortune Robert Webster had every intention of profiting from the turbulent times. He found himself hopelessly entangled with the captured pirate girl who was known on the Caribbean as Dawn. Her long black hair, dark eyes and light skin captivated his senses and made him her slave. Engulfed in the fury of those times they fell in love.

These three attractive young women had one thing in common, they all three would fall in love with buccaneers and find themselves prisoners of their own fate.

Gold drew stampeders to Alaska’s Innoko river region in 1906, when the town of Ophir was founded. More than 40 years later, the unchanging, government-mandated price for gold was strangling the town and its mining operations. Two young men, trying to recapture a dying way of life, spend a cold but entertaining winter in a remote cabin with an old timer while, in the town, a boatload of liquor contributes to odd goings-on.

A gunfight with no shots fired, a wrestling match where a woman defeats a man and the initiation of a 16-year-old boy into the brotherhood of the north help break the monotony. Community events take place in a roadhouse and two bars, where domestic disputes become public and where, on one night, a woman, squatting over a spittoon to avoid a 60-below outhouse, demanded to know if goggle-eyed spectators “never saw a lady pee before?”

A Christmas party for the town’s eight children is disrupted by a bungled knifing and, later, three of the children die in a fire when they are locked in while their parents visit a bar.

The story is fiction, but Ophir and its troubles both were real. Ophir is gone, wiped out in a fire, but still appears on most maps. A few mines still operate.
