History's Most Legendary Love Affairs (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: History has many romantic stories to tell of the part which women have played in determining the destinies of nations. Sometimes it is a woman's beauty that causes the shifting of a province. Again it is another woman's rich possessions that incite invasion and lead to bloody wars.
Many men in private life have lost fortune and fame for the love of woman. Kings have incurred the odium of their people, and have cared nothing for it in comparison with the joys of sense that come from the lingering caresses and clinging kisses. Cold-blooded statesmen have lost the leadership of their party and have gone down in history with a clouded name because of the fascination exercised upon them by some woman, often far from beautiful, and yet possessing the mysterious power which makes the triumphs of statesmanship seem slight in comparison with the swiftly flying hours of pleasure.
The love story of Cleopatra and Marc Anthony has most attracted the fancy of poets, dramatists, novelists, and painters, from their own time down to the present day. But that story is not the only one. Let us now discover the most legendary love affairs of all times.

Winston S. Churchill Biography (5 Book Series)
An epic standard in biography, the first volume in the complete and comprehensive life story of one of modern history’s greatest figures.
 
The first chapter of Sir Winston Churchill’s eight-volume official biography as told through a rich treasure trove of personal letters. This volume covers the years from Churchill’s birth in 1874 to his return to England from an American lecture tour, on the day of Queen Victoria’s funeral in 1900, in order to embark on his political career. In the opening pages, the account of his birth is presented through letters of his family. The subject comes on the scene with his own words in a letter to his mother, written when he was seven. His later letters, as a child, as a schoolboy at Harrow, as a cadet at Sandhurst, and as a subaltern in India, show the development of his mind and character, his ambition and awakening interests, which were to merge into a genius of our age.

An astounding narrative of a great man coming into his own and the times in which he lived, this portrait is a “milestone, a monument, a magisterial achievement . . . rightly regarded as the most comprehensive life ever written of any age.” (Andrew Roberts, historian and author of The Storm of War) and the “most scholarly study of Churchill in war and peace ever written.” (The New York Times).

Marlborough: His Life and Times Series (4 Book Series)
A brilliant historical figure begins a multivolume biography of his noted ancestor, bringing to life a personal and national history of England.
 
In the first volume of an ambitious and stunningly written four-volume biography, Sir Winston Churchill discusses the early career and stratospheric rise of his illustrious ancestor. John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough, may have been eclipsed in history by his more well-known descendant, but in his time, Marlborough was considered one of England’s foremost military leaders.

The first installment pays particular attention to personal details of Marlborough’s life, and the important role several women played in his success—including his sister, his wife, the Duchess of Cleveland, and Queen Anne herself. Sir Winston Churchill breathes life into these personal connections in an attempt to showcase Marlborough not only as a luminary figure in British history, but also to bring him to life once again in the mind of the reader.
“A sustained meditation on statecraft and war by the greatest war leader of our time.” —Foreign Affairs
 
“The greatest historical work written in our century, an inexhaustible mine of political wisdom and understanding, which should be required reading for every student of political science.” —Leo Strauss

The Secret of Now (9 Book Series)
From Book 1: ALSO AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK AND AUDIOBOOK! 7 LESSONS 7 EXERCISES TO STOP YOUR CHATTERING MIND AND START LIVING IN THE NOW (BEGINNER'S WORKBOOK)
THIS WORKBOOK FOR BEGINNERS contains 7 basic lessons and exercises you can apply NOW to begin to slow down and stop your "chattering mind" and begin to enjoy living in "The Now", an experience that will grant you inner peace and freedom from illusion starting TODAY.

It presents the basic concepts, principles and methods behind the spiritual teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Dalai Lama, Krishnamuti and Meister Eckhart, among others, based on the premise that “In essence there is and always has been only one spiritual teaching, although it comes in many forms”. This is truly a beginning workbook recommended for searchers of the Truth wanting to escape from illusion and experience the joyful inner peace that only brings Living in "The Now".

The seven spiritual lessons and exercises you will find in this workbook are based on the following ancient premises:

*Human suffering and unhappiness are produced by our “chattering mind”, which unceasingly produces an inner dialogue or chatter, preventing us from experiencing the Now.

*There is a way to slow down and stop our chattering mind. Once you learn how to do this, you too will be able to slow down and stop it when needed (especially when you sincerely need to stop it and end your distress and self-inflicted suffering.

*You cannot stop your thoughts completely, nor is it desirable. Even enlightened beings need to live and interact with society, like all humans.

*By actually slowing down your chattering mind, you can make them lose their power. Simply recognize them as “illusions”, that is, products of a psychological phenomenon common among humans and allegedly known in India since prehistoric times: the phenomenon of mental illusion caused by what for thousands of years has been known as “the veil of Maya”.

*Only by breaking yourself free from this mental veil you can gradually awaken and free yourself from the psychological illusion that causes human suffering and unhappiness, opening the doors of your inner peace and discovering the joy of Living in the Now!

With this book, you can be that person.

Forgotten Stories From Spain (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: The True Story of the Canadian Doctor and Ambulance driver that came to help a city in exodus.
Try to imagine that the city of Malaga is to be evacuated overnight. 150.000 people will have to walk 200km along the coastal road in search of a safe refuge whilst being pursued by Italian tanks, bombed by German aircraft and shelled by Rebel Nationalist ships. Unarmed men, women and children will be shot from planes or killed by blasts from the boats that pursue them off-shore, their bodies will be left at the roadside, abandoned to the chaos and inhumanity of adults at war. There will be little food, transport or fresh water. Nourished only by hope and driven by fear, exposed to the elements and to enemy fire, they will walk through the day and through the night. Many will be too weak to reach the safe port of Almería and will only survive because a Canadian doctor comes to help. A doctor who will later be accused of spying and betrayal, and will be unwillingly pushed out of Spain by the very people he had come to assist.

The Forgotten Stories from Spain Series brings you accounts of human bravery and spirit at a moment of unleashed cruelty during the Spanish Civil War. Stories of co-operation that have a universal message that remains as relevant to the world today, as it was in Spain during the 1930's.

The Advanced Bible Lessons SERIES (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: Whether you realize it or not, God is NOW REVEALING many of His SECRETS to man. In fact, we are ALL in the PROCESS of making our Christian SHIFT and graduating to the Bible’s 4th Spiritual Grade Level. This can be SCIENTIFICALLY proven (Chapter 4). The problem is, the teachings from the current Christian System are INCOMPLETE because they only reflect 1 of the Bible’s 7 Spiritual Grade Levels of Salvation.

In my book, the Saints explain the SCIENTIFIC SPIRITUAL PROCESS of Salvation, the SECOND COMING of the Christ, and the Bible’s 7 Spiritual Grade Levels which eventually lead ALL of us back to God and our Divine birthright to become Perfect beings, just like Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and the Saints have already proven to be true (Genesis 1:27, Matthew 5:48). It’s NO longer a Question of IF you will be Saved but how FAST do you want to get there?

The Saints say, “Belief, Faith, and Death do NOT bring about the higher states of Spiritual Evolution REQUIRED to graduate to Heaven (Revelation 3:21, 4:1). But those are the INCOMPLETE Spiritual Lessons that man “temporarily believes” at the Bible’s LOWER Spiritual Grade Levels that we find ourselves at today….

The good news is, we are ALL now graduating from these Lower UNSCIENTIFIC “Belief and Faith” stages of Spiritual development and progressing to the Higher “SCIENTIFIC and PROOF” Levels of God Awareness, i.e. Cause = Effect.

In God’s Spiritual Classroom, He created a Spiritual PROCESS of development and learning, i.e. the Bible’s 7 Spiritual Grade Levels. For example, the Atheist is in the 1st Spiritual Grade Level, the Bible DEFINES today’s Christianity as the 3rd Spiritual Grade Level, while Jesus and the Saints graduated from the 7th and FINAL Spiritual Grade Level (Revelation 4:1).

Here’s some food for thought, 22% or 52.8 million Christians living in the U.S. right NOW “believe” in Reincarnation. How did this happen? What you “believe” and Spiritually COMPREHEND to be true DEFINES your current Spiritual Grade LEVEL. In Chapter 14, you will learn about the past lives of Jesus and John the Baptist.

With the different Spiritual Grade Levels, ONLY some of you will be RECEPTIVE to these Advanced Spiritual Theories because you are NOW ready to graduate to the 4th Spiritual Grade Level.

As a son of God, He is NOW PUSHING you TOWARDS the Bible’s HIGHER Spiritual Grade Levels and your eventual Perfection. Because the Soul is an INDIVIDUALIZED part of God (Genesis 1:27), that means there are over 7 billion little mini-me’s of God that are ALL FAILING forward towards their eventual Perfection (Revelation 3:21, Matthew 5:48).

The PROOF is in the pudding! Look at the TREMENDOUS Advancements in Science, Medicine, and Technology which has taken place since 1700 A.D. These Material Advancements are ALL the BY-PRODUCT of man’s SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION over that period of TIME. Think about it. In the last 10,000+ years, man has made NO significant Material Advancements. Then, in the last 300 years, we go from riding bicycles to riding rockets to the moon, i.e. Spiritual Development = Material Development (Matthew 6:33).

Welcome to the NEW Higher Spiritual Age, the Advanced Bible Lessons (The Rules), and the BRAND NEW Spiritual Curriculum from the Bible’s 4th Spiritual Grade Level….

If any of this has peaked your Spiritual Curiosity, I really hope you will take a leap of faith and learn more about your Spiritual Evolution and the SCIENTIFIC PROCESS which God has created for you to eventually realize your Perfection.

Lives of the Saints (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: The world needs saints to show it the way to true humanity. The Church needs saints to show it how to live out its calling.

The witness of the lives of the saints is a powerful testimony to the reality of God’s plan and the possibility for truly following it in one’s life. So often, we do not see this witness. We see hypocrisy and mediocrity among Christians. That is why we must look to the saints — the ones who really followed the words of Christ and let them be carried out fully in their lives. The saints also give us a reason to hope. Saints were not born; they were made through a life of cooperation with God’s grace despite many difficulties, weaknesses, and temptations.

This book, written from a Catholic perspective, provides an overview to the lives of the saints celebrated from January to March on the Roman calendar. It is the first in a series, which will cover the whole Church year. It makes for inspirational spiritual reading any time of the year, providing an introduction to the patron saints for many walks of life. Included are the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph, Apostles like St. Peter and St. Paul, early martyrs like St. Perpetua and St. Felicity, early evangelizers like St. Patrick, medieval giants such as St. Thomas Aquinas, American saints such as St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and St. John Neumann, and many others.
