This book is about Ed Tuck, whose mother once described him as, “Independent as a hog on ice.” You can tell from that, that he was born and raised in the South and lived his life according to his mother’s description. Even though his parents were willing to pay for his higher education, he dropped out of high school early and enrolled as a Sophomore in the local college. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (all on his own dime) by working as a radio operator and announcer at country-music radio stations in Missouri, losing his Southern accent as a result of a threat: “Ed, if you say ‘haeff ’ or ‘caint’ one more time, we’re gonna FIRE you! While not an outstanding student (he was working full time), he graduated anyway. Many years later, the same university called him back and gave him a Doctor’s degree, so he decided he couldn’t have been too bad.

Engineer and entrepreneur Ed Tuck was frustrated. While running his small venture capital firm, Tuck would fly himself to meetings, but often had trouble locating small California airports that lacked towers. What Tuck wanted was a mobile GPS device that could tell him where he was – except such a device did not exist. So Tuck conceived of a company called Magellan, and assembled a team to build what would become the world’s first portable GPS device.
Born in Memphis, Tennessee, on July 5, 1931, Tuck came from a mechanical family. He showed an early interest in radio and communications, earning his ham radio license at age 15 and then graduating in 1953 from what is now University of Missouri at Rolla with an E.E. degree,. He applied his degree and his interest in communications in a variety of startups and existing corporations making everything from microwave transmitters to Mickey Mouse phones.

“In what I thought would be the end of my life and destruction of everything I had worked for actually been the catalyst to my finest creations. I experienced the most tumultuous episodes a person can endeavor; you name it, I went through it; again and again I hit metaphorical rock bottom until my mind was a pulverized mush. Sitting there, in the silence and solitude of my dark corner, I wondered if it was karma or some practical joke that the in asylums where I chose to spend my free time, I became a prisoner of both body and mind. When I wasn’t equipped with my camera, I had my words. What you’ll see and read in Elegance in Abandonment is the outcome of those experiences.”

If it involves an abandoned building, a dilapidated hotel, a zombie church, or a forsaken theater, Christine Carbone wants to spend time probing the ruins inside of it. “It’s exciting, potentially dangerous, legally ambiguous, and a lot of fun,” says Christine, a photographer, writer, and explorer from Long Island. What began as a hometown hobby soon evolved to abandoned locations across the world. As a high school student in 2000, she first secured a copyright for her poetry; a couple years later, her first published photo (of an abandoned Vanderbilt mansion) appeared in Newsday. Christine achieved her Bachelor of Arts in English and holds an MBA in Healthcare Administration, and continues to pursue her Dark Arts passions through self-portrait photography and prose. “I hope my work inspires you to explore new places, open your mind to eclectic forms of creativity, and most importantly find comfort in the freedom of being yourself.” For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by photography: it’s how I express what I see and feel. My life and experiences have shaped me into the person I am today, and it’s through these experiences that I create images and evoke emotions. What I create is a culmination of who I am, and though it speaks to viewers on many different levels, it is the product of my unique understanding.
She grew up in Kings Park, a small town perched up on the North Shore, established for and by the state-owned Psychiatric Center whose ruins now surround the sprawling property along the Nissequogue River. As a teen, it was Building 93 that intrigued her to explore: a creepy gothic figure which looms over the town with an impressive and intimidating presence. As a photographer, her first impression was the haunting exterior – its vast campus and numerous buildings. Once she ventured inside, she fell in love with the forgotten hallways, graffiti-infested walls and deserted inventory of the former hospital. Christine thought she was alone in her fascination. “I didn’t realize at the time that there was a whole community of people who were as enchanted with the beauty of the abandoned as I was.” Christine has always had a taste for the macabre, and her passions allow her to express that side; “I was a total Goth as a kid. And I planned to get into forensics as a career.” But her plans changed in college and life, as they so often do, and Christine wound up in a career where she helps the living instead. Through her work, she continues to chase the dark and tell her story.

In her memoir series Diary of a Middle-Age Sex Goddess, Elizabeth J. Winters Waite explores the complexities of life for a single mother in her sexual prime. Bridging the gap between Sex and the City and The Golden Girls, her stories detail raising three boys, running a successful all-female accounting firm, and pursuing passions that grow her soul, all while trying to get laid—or trying not to get laid, whichever the case may be— while on the never-ending quest for true love.

In Fragile Flower, the first volume in the series, Waite’s youngest son turns ten and, for his birthday, asks for a stepfather. Being a dutiful mother, Waite enrolls in three different dating sites and goes on fifty-three first dates—all in one year! But jumping back into the dating game after so many years isn’t easy. What are The Rules for being forty-something and back on the scene? How does a middle-age sex goddess protect her heart, her hearth and her family of three young sons while looking for love? Is it still considered “kissing frogs” when she can find something to like about everyone she goes out with?

Elizabeth J. Winters Waite was raised in the middle of nowhere in Indiana, becoming an accountant instead of an actress because she was tired of being poor. She had her own accounting firm of single moms for 20 years, known as the “hot chick accounting firm”. She sold the firm in 2011, took two years off to write, and then became the CFO of the Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation, named CDC of the Year for the state of Ohio in 2018. The mother of three amazing, funny, kind and compassionate young men, Elizabeth loves to grow things, whether they be flowers, fruit trees, financial statements or friendships.

Like The Omega Project the premise behind this book starts back during World War Two with General William Donovan, holder of the Army’s four top medals including the CMH, and the Office of Strategic Services better known as the O.S.S. To most people outside of the Department of State it was obvious that communism was incompatible with the American way of life. Therefore the Russians were most likely to become our next major enemy.
Based upon the OSS Project Omega plan and authorized by President Truman, a series of secret shelters were built throughout the United States. Each shelter designed to be selfsufficient for long term survival and very comfortable for long term living. So what would life be like in one of these secret bases? What would people do while sitting around waiting for the end of the world as we knew it? In this series many of the inhabitants work for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency doing advanced research developing very advanced technology.
So, this book is part history, part science fi ction and a lot of speculation. What would future everyday life look like? How would door locks work? How about access to your computer? How about your computer itself? How does one get from place to place in this futuristic world? These items must be looked at from the standpoint of a three or four generation advancement.

Angus Hodgson grew up in Buffalo, New York the son of a naval officer turned attorney. He remembers the Cuban Missile Crisis, air raid drills in school and helping his father turn the basement into a fallout shelter. Scary times that left an indelible memory.
In 1975 he graduated from Norwich University, the Military College of Vermont with a degree in education. After trying out a few different jobs he ended up in south Texas as a police officer. During his twenty year career in law enforcement he served in a variety of roles including suburban and rural patrol, investigations, both urban and rural surveillance and high risk warrant service. Along the way he learned to write good accurate detailed reports to keep himself out of court on his days off. Angus finished his law enforcement career as an instructor of police hard skills including defensive tactics, driving, firearms, mechanics of arrest and VIP protection.
In 1998 he became a part-time instructor for one of the nation’s leading anti-terrorism companies. In that job he started out as an evasive driving instructor but quickly branched out into firearms and many of the other skills he had taught to police officers. That job became a full time job taking him all over much of the world including the war zone of Afghanistan to train people in surveillance detection and other skills for the US Government. Along the way he became certified by the Department of State to teach many of the hard skills that he had taught police officers.
