Operation Magic Carpet was the most extensive combined air and sealift ever organized during wartime. Elmer A. Struss, my father, was an officer in the Navy, one of many assigned this task and helped bring back home millions of soldiers at the end of WWII. It was called… by all the servicemen and women, as the scope expanded worldwide, as “Home Alive By ’45!” My special presentation on this Memorial Weekend is of the First Nighttime Torpedo Drop in Naval History, Operation Magic Carpet, and action in the theater of Northern Africa. Today, my words are a tribute to the patriotism about Eagle Lake, Texas’ Three Musketeers, as they were known in school in the 1920s and 1930s… Robert Jack “Coogie” Ney, Elmer A. Struss and Freddie R. Frnka. "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." - President Ronald Reagan "As we set today aside to honor and thank our veterans, let us be mindful that we should do this every day of the year and not just one." – Beth Pennington "Our flag, Old Glory, doesn’t fly because the wind moves it. It flies proudly with the very last breath of each soldier who died protecting it." - Sidney St. James Anchor.FM Apple Podcasts Google Plays Podcasts Spotify Podcasts Have you ever moved into your new house and found it was haunted?

Owing a home is one of our great American dreams, something we all aspire to do in our early years of life. There's something about having a tiny part of planet Earth to call your own that inspires a sense of both security and pride. Getting the keys handed over to you at closing for your very first home is always a cause for celebration: you open the door, cross the threshold, possibly carrying the woman you love in your arms, and go inside your very own castle - whether it be an apartment or a single-family home in a quiet residential subdivision. Have you ever moved into your new house and found it was haunted? See other novels, This Old House and Guitar by Sidney St. James Tell me this. What happens if you are one of those unfortunate new home buyers who makes a bone-chilling discovery that you and your family, not to mention your pets, are not the only ones who reside in your home sweet home? Living in a haunted house can be stressful for many reasons. There's the emotional stress that comes with being continuously in fear of whats just around the corner, as well as the financial stress that occurs when particularly active ghosts wreak their eerie business around the house: they break things and send the energy bill sky high with their constant tinkering with the lights or the air conditioning thermostat! Knocking picture frames off the walls, etc. Moreover, it's definitely unsettling to feel as though you are never alone and always being watched, especially in the one place you hope some privacy. There was one such house near Glidden, Texas that was in such bad shape, the community advertised that on October 31stat 7 pm, a contest to see who could remain in the house all night.

SEASON 1 EPISODE 15 THE THREE DIFFERENT STEPS TOWARDS FINDING FORGIVENESS FAITH – SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN BY SIDNEY ST. JAMES (A True Story of Forgiveness) From the memoirs of the first ordained woman minister in the state of Louisiana, Rev. Ada Caston Slaton Bonds, as Moderator for the General Assembly six years in a row. Given the official title of Mother of All Presbyteries of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Active in the ministry for 55+ years, almost longer than any other woman in the United States. Known throughout the South as the greatest Evangelical minister in all denominations. Given the title of the representative to God for her “Pure Womanhood” by the Ku Klux Klan No. 60. Numerous scriptures were found in her Red Chief Notebooks about Forgiveness. The story of her life written in the creative historical nonfiction genre. How Often Do We Have to Forgive? Matthew 18:21-22. Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven." ***** As soon as Jesus rose from the dead and made his first visit to the disciples, he breathed the Holy Spirit on them and then spoke to them about forgiveness. John 20:21-23. Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” ***** One text that speaks about the consequences of unforgiveness.  Matthew 18:23-35. The parable begins with the King forgiving the debt of one of his servants who cried for mercy. After that this same servant, who was forgiven, mercilessly charged one of his fellow servants. The fellow servant likewise cried for mercy. But it was thrown in the prison by the pardoned servant until the debt was repaid. The King learned of this and was outraged. The outcome of the story is narrated in Matthew 18: 32-35. “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. 33. Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ 34. In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. 35. “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.” The song at the end of the podcast was sung by Fernando Ortega… “Lord, I Want to be Like Jesus in My Heart!” EBook, Paperback and Audio books available at all audio distributor retail outlets: Faith – Seventy Times Seven Seeing the Power of God – Does One Have to Believe in the Bible to be a Christian?

n 1965, Peter & Gordon sang the song written by Buddy Holly called "True Love Ways." As a youngster, I danced my first slow song with a woman in the Community Center who I decided would be my wife one day. She was from Deer Park, Texas. Funny how life branches out in many directions… it never happened. Our story, much like the song, is unique because it is both romantic and realistic. It recognizes the truth: that sometimes life will be difficult. Our leading characters will cry, but they'll work through it together. It might possibly bring them closer. While this song acknowledges the outside world (sharing joys with those who really care), it is also intimate. "Just you and I" know these ways of true love. I've often thought of this song in terms of a couple starting out – the use of "will by and by," "throughout the days," and "will bring us" suggests that they're looking into the times ahead; yet, it's applicable in far greater scope as seen in the writing of this novel. In our story, Marco Naumann has fallen in love with Simone Wolfensohn in New Orleans. She was most definitely a catch of any young man. However, she lived in high society and demanded that Marco be wealthy before getting married. She found a way by his marrying a dying girl, Miss Kerstin Hoffman, who would soon inherit several million dollars of a magnificent estate in the Dutchy of Oldenburg in Germany. Marco was to marry her, and when she died, take the inheritance, and come back for Simone's hand in marriage. Kerstin laid on her death bed as Marco walked back into her life after a fifteen-year absence. "I love you, Marco like you're the very last of my kind. You speak the same language as me. Oh, God, Marco, to be around you is like finally not being alone…as if all my life I've been isolated in a windowless room. Then, after all these years, you walk through the doorway, across the room, into my life, as if you were strolling over a summer meadow. How is it, Marco, that you are much, much more than sunshine?  How is it you breathe life when there isn't anyone else that can? Tell me, Marco… why is it you are my medicine?  Who could love me more than you? So, Marco, from this moment forward, know this…while I breathe, I am yours in mind, body, and soul. I love you!" Our story has many twists and turns. In the first of a two-part edition, we find that there's another possible descendant, a cousin named Norman Hoffman, who works in a small mining community outside San Francisco. He is the son of the second-born, Florian Hoffman. He gathers all his documents that prove his identity and begins his travel to New Orleans to present his papers to the law firm, Slaton & Slaton, down on Poydras. However, his travels come to an abrupt stop. One will have to wait and find out if the wolves devour him in the forest after a bullet passes through his chest. Lots of questions go unanswered. Does Kerstin Hoffman live or die? Does Marco inherit the great fortune and return to Simone for her hand in marriage. Does Norman Hoffman survive and prove that he is next in line for the grand estate's wealth in Oldenburg, Germany.

Episode 13: A Podcast of the Sidney St. James Show Burn, Baby, Burn! – Take the long-held assumption, found even in some of the most respected history books, that 1960s feminists exhibited against the establishment by setting fire to their bras. I grew up during this era. But where did it all begin? Maybe with Susan B. Anthony and others at the Seneca Falls meeting in New York in 1848? Follow my most exciting new adventure in this fiction novel based on actual facts as Dianne Jenkins loves one man, Russell Keiner, with her heart but despites him and all men with her mind. Follow her as she graduates from college and attempts to fight for Women’s Rights. Our story has its beginning in 1860 with Abraham Lincoln having been just elected president of the United States… the long road to suffrage 1848 to 1920. Let’s find out just what one senator said in 1968, “Feminists are only braless, brainless broads!” I Am Woman - Hear Me Roar, Part I and I Am Woman - I am invincible, Part 2 of this two-part series,  hit the book stores on August 18, 2020, celebrating 100 long years from the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment securing women’s right to vote in the United States of America! In the 1800s, the rights usually enjoyed by women were often taken away when she married. As a matter of fact, a woman gave up so many civil and property rights upon walking across that threshold that she was said to be entering a state of “civil death.” One such woman who would not stand for this inequality was Dianne Jenkins. She loves Reverend Russell Keiner with all her heart but hates him with all her mind. Her moving speech as Magna Cum Laude at Hampton’s College describes her feeling toward inequality while not pulling any punches. Happy Listening!

The rush to the Louisiana border was known to the Texans as the Runaway Scrape, the Great Runaway, or the Sabine Shoot. Whatever one calls it, the wild exodus was a nightmare of terror and suffering for women and children across the Lone Star State. It was only their burning desire for retribution that made it possible for them to keep going. REMEMBER THE ALAMO! REMEMBER GOLIAD! COME AND TAKE IT! Dilue Rose Harris told her story for the Eagle Lake Headlight in Eagle Lake, Texas, in 1900. Delicate women trudged from day to day until their shoes were literally worn out and continued their journey to the east with bare feet, lacerated and bleeding at almost every step. Their clothes were scant and provided no means of shelter from frequent drenching downpours and bitterly cold winds. --- Soldier from the Battle of San Jacinto In efforts to escape the tyranny of General Santa Anna, the older men, women, and children found the few ferries to cross the waterways could not accommodate the large volumes of traffic. At Lynch’s Ferry, over five thousand people were waiting to get across. --- Dilue Rose Harris In the group of women with Dilue Rose Harris, one recalled in her memoirs that there were very few white men in the hundreds in her group. The African Americans seemed to be the protectors of most of the families. She had nothing but the highest praise for the Men of Color without whose help they may never have succeeded. --Mary S. Helm Not wishing the women and children to see their homes put to the torch in Gonzales, Texas, Sam Houston led the civilians out of the small community. Then he ordered that no roof large enough to shelter a Mexican’s head should be left standing. Finally, the women of the Runaway Scrape or the Sabine Shoot, or the Great Runaway justifiably could regard themselves as Veterans of the Texas Revolution. They endured dangers and hardships as harsh as those faced by their soldier-husbands. Not as commonly lauded over the last almost two hundred years, their efforts were just as important. Santa Anna had no secret of his objective. He wanted to drink a cup of coffee from the waters of the Sabine River and, on the way, rid Texas of all perfidious foreigners. His campaign ended on April 21, 1836. #texashistory #texas #history #igtexas #travel #traveltexas #easttexas #texastodo #texasphotography #truetexas #sanantonio #visittexas #roadtrip #photography #smalltown #tx #architecture #smalltowntexas #texashighways #houston #exploretexas #texashillcountry More Novels from SIDNEY ST.

Growing up in the small town of Eagle Lake, Texas, I always saw myself living in the big city of Houston, Texas where stores are open past five o'clock and inspiration can be found on almost every street corner. Now that I finally made the move, I couldn't be happier with my choice. But growing up in a tiny town made me who I am and I wouldn't trade my small-town experiences and all my lifelong friends I made for the world. One such friend was Wanda Lynn Smith. I received a phone call a few weeks ago informing me she lost her battle with Cancer. I immediately turned to my recording studio and just started recording. No script, just words from the heart. You see, that phone call I received informed me my dear friend for more than half a century was no longer with us. So, I stared out the window of my studio for ten minutes and then began to cut this Special Edition of the Sidney St. James Show. Words Are Tears from the Heart!

Rosenthall - Bête Maléfique des Bois - The Birth of Detective Vincent James Gideon Black Rock Cove, on the coastline of Oregon, has a unique and sinister charm. By day, it is a quaint fishing village and charming resort for summertime visitors, but by night…well, that’s a different story. The murder of Oliver Bateman was purely the strangest of all crimes. A gunshot was heard as he fell dead in the courtyard, but bullet holes were missing from his body. Three deep knife wounds, however, covered his chest. Even stranger, Elizabeth Knight, daughter of famed Nobel Prize winner William Knight, was discovered in her locked bedroom on the brink of death after hysterical screaming and two gunshots were heard. She was found all alone… no assassin present. Find the motive of the assassin, and you locate the criminal. Nevertheless, several people have reasons, which may have led them to the deed. Which one did it? Why did the murderer leave a bloody cow bone in the room? Why was there only one bullet found in the chamber after witnesses heard two shots, and two were expended in the golden 22 caliber revolver found in the room? Also, most of all, how was the crime committed in a sealed chamber? How did the assassin escape? Wait! Did the wrong person lose their life? What will that do? Create more questions? Result in more murders? Will there be other murders? Who’s the mastermind behind them? These questions become the catalyst for a sequence of events that will rivet the readers to their seats. This first novel debuts Vincent Gideon, a young detective making a name for himself solving cold cases. A best-selling author, Abigail Guerin, better known as Abby throughout the novel, adds a twist of romance as she assists him. They must solve the case before the mystery man catches the six o’clock train departing Black Rock Cove. However, no other than the Great Shane Murdock comes to town. He is Gideon’s mentor and has solved more cold cases in America than anyone else. Some have called him in headline news, the Sherlock Holmes of America. He is a household name from his successful endeavors at solving crimes the local authorities can’t. Black Rock Cove, the setting in James’ thriller series, The Storm Lord Trilogy, is still his canvas in his Gideon Detective Series. James unveils a labyrinth of evil constructed by people at the highest levels of power. More secrets are revealed. Is the Bête Maléfique des Bois, the beast responsible for so many deaths? More people continue to lose their lives. You don’t know who can be trusted. Martin DuBois? Terrence McGyver? Chris Darnay? Mother Althena? Could Gideon himself be the mastermind of the crimes?

PODCAST EPISODE 009: The Making of the Final Chapter of the Storm Lord Trilogy, Three Keys to Armageddon! Using the rich background of the spiritual world of Archangels Michael and his Sword of Angels and Gabriel with his trumpet of victory in the background, the Storm Lord Trilogy Series pursues the return of Satan himself with a paranormal bent world of EVIL versus GOOD filled with captivating characters. The ever-moving series’ sharp dialogue, highly original plot lines and stylistic flair is as rhythmic and vibrant as any of his earlier works.  These three novels in the 3-book Storm Lord Trilogy Series, The Flaming Blue Sword, Nine Months Will Tell and The Three Keys to Armageddon are provocative, confrontational and contain highly creative twists and turns into the unexpected, but always with a healthy dose of humor, not to mention romance, no matter how intense the circumstances might become. In this final chapter, Nikki Connors must find the three keys to Armageddon or… all Hell will break loose… literally. One of twelve quests pits our heroine against evil out to destroy the goodness in the world. Nikki, along with her mother Angel Thompson, were propelled into challenges in which they could die at every turn. Action on their part is required every step of the way to keep the world good… balanced… and… in peace! Sean E. Jacobs, author of The Eye of the Storm, was on this show last year and had this to say about the Storm Lord Trilogy Series: “I really enjoy reading books with kick-butt female characters. Nikki Connors is definitely one of them. She’s probably one of the most enigmatic and levelheaded heroines in paranormal romance today. There are so many things I could say about this character… she’s tough… she’s brave and relentless… and, she’s smart. In short, she’s an amazing young woman!” Next week in Episode 10, we will kick off the Gideon Detective Series, cozy mysteries with love and passion, not to mention not knowing whodunnit until the end of the novels, with the novel Rosenthall - Bete Malefique des Bois!

NINE MONTHS WILL TELL BOOK TWO IN THE STORM LORD TRILOGY SERIES ---a paranormal romance Continuation of the Storm Lord Trilogy in Chapter Two, Nine Months Will Tell, finds Angelica Thompson and Sheriff Kevin Connors expecting their first child. Her pregnancy comes as a surprise to her and Kevin because it is precisely nine months after their defeat of Ethan Knight in Chapter One of the Storm Lord Trilogy series. The question now that arises for the two love-birds is whether the Storm Lord lost his life in their final battle in the first of the series or did he, somehow, miraculously survive the epic encounter.

Angel continues to discover more of the enchantments that hold her hostage. Why do all of the villagers in Black Rock Cove turn their backs on her when she comes to town? Why is it the FBI investigators continue to disappear overnight when in town to investigate the disappearance of so many children? Why are her nightmares getting stronger each day as she gets closer to having her first newborn? Why is her amulet beginning to glow again? More noise came from the front porch. Angel reached down and rubbed her pockets on her warmups, looking for her pepper spray, but both were flat! “Jesus Christ! Where did I leave my spray?

Episode 006: The Sixth and Final Novel in the Faith Chronicles by Sidney St. James - Seeing the Power of God! After writing Genesis and Hallelujah, I became one of those people who asked, “Can anyone be a Christian and not believe in the Bible? Is it wrong to question any of the scriptures in the Bible?” Some people believe questioning the Bible, the direction God is going, or even God himself, is blasphemy. Some think it is a sign of disbelief. The mystery of why our main character in the novel has such cynicism is possible because he remembers nothing before his eighteenth birthday. The first book he read after learning to read and write was on Hinduism. His father didn’t know how such a book ended up in his library, but he took it and hid it from his son. Was it too late? Did what he read about Vishnu and Krishna absorb his entire thought process where he never recognized Jesus Christ as the one and only son of God? Who’s right, the father or his son? What was this strange ability he had with being able to communicate with animals, one of God’s creations? Why can’t he remember anything in his life before his eighteenth birthday? Who is his cousin who comes strangely into his life on his twenty-first birthday? Who is the stranger who is hired to come and teach him about Jesus Christ and the Bible? Let’s try to answer the question “Is it wrong for Christians to Question God?” My personal feeling as an author writing this book found three questions one should never ask. One should not ask a question of the Lord because they think they know better than Him. One should never question God’s authority, a big No, No! We should never ask questions of God to try and stall our obedience to the Lord. But, if we are questioning the scriptures in the Bible because we desperately want to know the answer because we are searching out and really want to know our Lord because we want to see the light in so much confusion, then that should be okay… HAPPY LISTENING Tags: #christianbook #christianbooks #christian #Jesus #God #christianauthor #bookstagram #bible #christrianbookstgram #faith #seventytimesseven #sidneystjames #cumberlandpresbyterianchurch #eaglelake #columbus #forgiveness #kukluxklan #progresscumberlandpresbyterian #christianbookclub #christianlife #christianpodcasts #genesis #beeboppublishinggroup #creativenonfiction #sundayschool #bookclubs #acfw #rwa #historicalnonfiction --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sidneystjames/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sidneystjames/support
Podcast Episode 005: The Making of Hallelujah – He is not Here; He Has Risen (Luke 24: 6) by Sidney St. James If you're a slow and methodical worker when it comes to creating things, then you'll likely find great inspiration in "Hallelujah," episode five of the Sidney St. James Faith Chronicles Series. In "Hallelujah," James, the best-selling author of Faith, Seeing the Power of God, and I Am Woman, lets his creative nonfiction loose upon how creative writing works. Hallelujah - He is not Here; He Has Risen (Luke 24: 6) is a creative historical nonfiction novel drawn from the New Testament. It is factually accurate and written with attention to literary style. The life story told in this novel begins, primarily, with the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. It was at this time John announced that Jesus was, in fact, the Son of God. Secondly, Jesus finds his first three disciples. There were finally twelve disciples who accompanied Jesus until the end of his life on the earth. The ministry of Jesus is characterized by many extraordinary and miraculous happenings. At his Sermon on the Mount, he delivered the Beatitudes, which were spiritual teachings of compassion, humility, and love. He fed the hungry. He healed the sick. The more miracles he performed, the more people followed him and listened to his teachings. The life of the Lord is most important to all Christians in each walk of life. Every Christian should know about the life of Jesus Christ and his spiritual leadership. He did so happen to have spent his entire life on earth. Read the stories of Jesus: Changing water into wine. Catching a large number of fish. Healing a leper. Curing a paralyzed man. Raising of Lazarus. Healing a man with a withered hand. Raising a widow’s son. Calming the storm. Walking on water. Restoring a severed ear from a soldier. And on and on and on… And, on conclusion of the “New Testament” in Hallelujah, we will present our last episode No. 6, an exciting conclusion to the series, Seeing the Power of God… Does one have to believe in the Bible to be a Christian? Stay tuned… HAPPY LISTENING.

GENESIS – Imagine Stepping Onto the Shore and Finding It’s Heaven is a creative historical nonfiction novel drawn from the Old Testament. It is factually accurate and written with attention to literary style. My extensive research led me into animated descriptions at my desk and emotional outpours to arrive at the truth through shaping the information, molding the narrative so that it reads like fiction. It makes the stories so easy to understand. One of the methods Jesus used in communicating his messages in the Bible was through parables. What is a parable, you might ask? Well, it’s an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. When Jesus started telling parables to the many people along his many paths, his disciples would ask him, “Why do you speak unto them in parables?” I remember the Reverend Ada Caston Slaton Bonds standing up in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Pleasant Hill, Louisiana, or Old Bethany Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Coushatta and every Sunday speaking in parables. In other words, earthly stories with a heavenly meaning. Jesus did the same thing so that his disciples would comprehend his teachings and that those who did not believe would be without any understanding. Those interested in understanding God’s truth of his message would know, while those not interested would remain without knowledge. Stay tuned for Episode 5, Hallelujah - He is not Here; He Has Risen (Luke 24: 6) and Episode 6, the conclusion to the Faith Chronicles, Seeing the Power of God.

Reverend Mrs. Ada Caston Slaton Bonds is one of the most colorful ministers ever produced by the great Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Beyond a doubt, she overcame more difficulties and passed through more heartaches than any minister ever known to preach the 'Whosoever Will' gospel. Miss Ada, as all affectionately called her, possessed countless prodigies. By way of the corridors of her ministerial career, she helped shape the lives and mold the character of many young ministers, who, today, rise up and call her 'blessed.' God sent her His Divine calling to preach. She then learned to preach. She carved out a place for herself among the clergy that was unique, without comparison. With bottomless emotion, genuine poise, and true dignity, Miss Ada became the First Lady of the Cloth in the Louisiana Presbytery and had the highest honor bestowed upon her: Mother of All Presbyteries. FAITH – Seventy Times Seven is a creative historical nonfiction novel. It is factually accurate and written with attention to literary style. My extensive research led me into animated descriptions at my desk and emotional outpours to arrive at the truth through shaping the information, molding the narrative so that it reads like fiction. Miss Ada set the standards high for being a minister in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. She was an anomaly for her time. Still today, we find the bar for preaching the word of God set high by Ada for all young men and women entering the ministry!  Watch for Episode 4, The Making of Genesis - Stepping Onto the Shore and Finding It's Heaven!

FROM THE MEMOIRS OF DILUE ROSE HARRIS (The Runaway Scrape, the Great Runaway or the Sabine Shoot) Creative nonfiction has become the most popular genre in our literary communities.  Recent creative nonfiction titles on the best-seller lists include Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken or Dave Egger's Zeitoun and, of course, Sidney St. James' The ROSE of Brays Bayou - God Bless Texas Women. James discusses the early stages of writing this creative nonfiction novel and does so in writing scenes throughout the pages which represents the difference between showing and telling. Many books on memoirs will tell the reader about a subject or a place, but Sidney St. James, a teller of stories and writer of novels, shows the subject and place vividly and memorably... in action scenes. In this podcast, The Making of The ROSE of Brays Bayou, James discusses the early stages of happenings that led to the writing of this novel. These happenings are a "True" account of actual ghosts from the Smithson family and others interrupting the contractors on multiple occasions. One such happening was a ghost, her name was "Annie" who wrote her name on the top of a paint can lid in front of the contractor while the room dropped twenty degrees... scout's honor. Sidney St. James was given in 2005 a typewritten manuscript from William Kell who received it from a Harris family member. Kell, in turn, gave it to the author and his wife for their successful completion of restoration of the Smithson-Struss home in Eagle Lake, Texas where Dilue Rose Harris wrote her memoirs of that fearful time in Texas history, The Runaway Scrape.

As a three decade professional genealogist I wrote several family history books before continuing my career as a best selling author in creative nonfiction, fantasy, science fiction, detective mysteries and romance novels. The skills I learned in researching family histories and introducing them in my writing of many of 50+ novels was first used in my debut novel, Book 1 of the Faith Chronicles, Adversity - Keeping the Faith. After many years of research in studying my own family history from Oldenburg, Germany to Frelsburg, Texas, beginning in the Texas A&M Reserve Reading Room at the library during my college days with endless strips of microfilm, Adversity had its beginning. It is amazing how, as adults, we struggle during our childhood through the date-pocketed courses of history...bored, disenchanted, waiting only for the end of that cobwebbed test of endurance. In later years, we find that history is the most fascinating and stimulating of all areas of knowledge. We can ask ourselves, why this unfortunate paradox? Has "history" really changed? The answer is...No!” However important dates, names, and places may be to an expert understanding of history, they are not history, but only the checkpoints and framework of history. This novel is about people, real people, blood and bones, loves and hates, strengths, passions, weaknesses, and belief in Jesus Christ, our Lord. History is joys and sorrows, failures and successes, heartbreaks and ecstasies. What is history? History is power, the exercise of power, and the vacuum of power. Please join me and listening to the early foot-work that brought about the beginning of this novel.
