The Omega Project: Book 3, The Path of War
List Price: 18.95
Available: January 2019
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.

The Five Most Harmful Myths About Grief
List Price: 11.95
Available: February 2019
Guidance from a Life Coach for Navigating the Unsolicited Bad Advice Given to People Who Are Grieving
This is a book about how to recognize and overcome the five most common and harmful myths about grief that are not only untrue, but are also the source of much of the unsolicited bad advice given to people who are grieving.
This book shows you what healthy grieving looks like, and inspires you with practical, true stories from real-life experiences that can help ease your journey through grief. It teaches you that death, loss, and grief are bearable because you are more resilient than you know.
In The Five Most Harmful Myths About Grief, Elaine encourages us to uphold two kinds of courage needed for the journey of grief: the first is to face our own mortality, and that of our loved ones. Every human life story has a beginning and an end. In between those two points, courage helps us discover what has meaning for us, and helps us decide what we will do with the time we have. The second kind of courage is even more important – the courage to act on what is real, true, and possible for us when grief cracks open our hearts and renders us tender, wounded, and lonely.
An award-winning author, Elaine’s works have been published in the United States, Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom in magazines, blogs, and business and academic journals. She is the author of eight inspirational books, a life coach, and hosts quarterly Death Cafes in her community. Elaine is a member of the International Women’s Writing Guild and has been named one of the Top Ten Best Life Coaches in Indianapolis by Expertise.com.

Because of the fact that he had four years of free time before he got married to his second wife, who he was with until the day he passed away.

I love books, I love to read, I love to write. I’ve been a writer all my life but haven’t had the time or treasure to put out a book until I retired.

In addition to a debut novel (also published by Dog Ear), I now have two novels in the southeastern Ohio series. I’ve got a couple of books in the works, some in the series and some stand-alone. With my wife Jean, I have raised three children and we have eight grandchildren. She is an academic and thus my most stalwart editor. We are happily ensconced in the foothills of the Front Range in Colorado and enjoying perpetual sunny days and hearty exercise.

Ian Watts has traveled extensively for many decades. As a child, he read about the world and devoured National Geographic magazines. Both of Ian’s parents had a strong connection to a land—Hawaii, where his mother and grandmother grew up—and lifestyle that seemed unattainably exotic to Ian as he grew up in northern California. As early as possible, Ian traveled independently, starting with the UK, and those early journeys kindled in him a passion for faraway places that remains today.
Ian’s background includes a BA in anthropology, a stint as a journeyman electronics technician for the United States Department of the Navy, an intermittent career as a freelance artist, and thirty-plus years as a healthcare safety and compliance professional. These foundations, plus years of travel and broad experience in travel planning, enable Ian to produce and provide useful advice based on travel questions most asked by friends and family.
Ian lives in a tiny town in the northern California foothills, in a restored gold-rush-era boardinghouse that he shares with his wife, two cats, and a desert tortoise.
