Slade: Innocence Lost

The authorities believed that he had killed six people.

A Mafia Don was convinced that Slade had killed three members of his family. Indeed, Slade had killed one man. And would kill two more before the end of his adventure.

It had all started for Slade, when his father, an MI5 agent, as a young man during World War II, had left him, posthumously, a long letter containing clues to the location of a lost treasure.

All Slade had wanted to do was to locate the son of his Father’s war time OSS counter part, and together, find and recover three and a half tons of gold bullion, from somewhere along the North African coast; part of the mysterious ‘Rommel’s Treasure’.

But someone, very powerful, wanted Slade out of the picture, dead if possible, and they were doing their best to accomplish that wish.

Reclaiming the Life We Lost Along the Way

We’ve been sold a bill of goods. Not out of malice but out of a fundamental misunderstanding of how to effectively approach our lives—and the world—in order to secure the genuine happiness and authentic loving relationships we desire. In Reclaiming the Life We Lost Along the Way, we discover that at the heart of every decision we make is the intention to reduce our suffering and satisfy our unmet yearnings. Authentic love, safety, acceptance, connection, belonging, meaning, purpose, value, appreciation. These are the shared desires of every human being. To meet these desires, we have invested tremendous effort, yet the quality of life we have sought continues to elude us. The reason is shockingly simple: We have attempted to resolve an internal problem with external solutions. The outside world an never satisfy our deepest longings until our inner world makes a critical shift in perception and orientation. When this internal shift occurs, our experience of everything outside of us begins to change as well. This is the key to realizing and experiencing the quality of life we have been seeking for so long. Discover who you really are, recover your true self, bring your unique gifts to life, then share them with the world. This book shows you how to reclaim the life you were born to live by recovering the authentic love and deep fulfillment you came out of the Universe to encounter and extend in your own life and the lives of everyone you touch.

Going Crazy in the Green Machine: The Story of Trauma and PTSD among Canada's Veterans

Many Canadians are vaguely aware of the military’s steady involvement in overseas operations over the past 20 years. For many soldiers, however, memories of these places torment them daily. They are haunted; they are changed from who they were as proud men and women. How do we support these soldiers to find their way back home? The story of Master Corporal Billy Reardon is an intimate portrayal of his journey from young man to mentally wounded military veteran. We see the world through his eyes as the toll of his deployments mount and as he struggles within the mental health system. We also see him find recovery and reconnection to the military brotherhood along with other veterans. Billy’s story raises questions about the roles of front-line leadership and challenges health providers to develop an intimate understanding of military culture as a prerequisite to assisting traumatized veterans and their families.

Resonate: The Stories We Tell Ourselves

What do you really believe about who you are?

Many of us might not even be sure how to answer that question.

We are often driven by the desire to draw conclusions on every event, every memory, every encounter, and organize it into one of two piles: good or bad.

Is it possible that it could be less about those experiences being “good” or “bad” and more about what story we are going to choose to believe about ourselves as a result?

Resonate: The Stories We Tell Ourselves is an invitation to ask some honest questions:

-What do you do when life has thrown you off course?

-How do you recover from loss and disappointment?

-How do you face the fear that has haunted you for so long?

-Where do you begin to heal and forgive when it seems too difficult?

“The truth is that we are ultimately the ones that decide the stories we are going to tell ourselves. My story has grown to be about what I have chosen to tell myself and this is now my invitation to you to begin to do the same. This is me, sharing with you, how there is a path out of the confusion, the hurt, the colossal disappointment and the discombobulated mess your life can sometimes become without your permission....And along the way, hilarity and heartbreak often go hand in hand.”

Bat Blood - Part Two: Unshackled Demons

‘If you want someone dead, make sure they die’

Abandoned in the middle of the forest and left to die, Claraicy harbors a lot of resentment towards those who physically and emotionally abused her. After being infected by genetically modified cells, she finds that she is much more resilient and stronger than she ever thought possible.

While being hunted by those who wanted her dead, Claraicy strikes back. As her gruesome acts of revenge hit the press, Doctor Scott (the DNA scientist who unintentionally created her) plus an elite force of professional soldiers go to extreme lengths to subdue her. Despite this, with Claraicy’s hormones going haywire she craves a mate. As frustration mounts, blood-thirsty demons on both sides become unshackled.

As Claraicy becomes more creature than human, her fragile mind is fixated on the one person she despised the most, Santa Claus. With her body genetically altered to withstand almost anything Mother Nature and man can throw at it more than just Colonel Duncan Stuart’s resolve is tested.

It's Your Movie!: Tune Into Your Channel And Create The Life of Your Dreams

It’s Your Movie! contains the true story of how the author, a businesswoman, went in a new direction as she embarked upon a spiritual journey. After successfully opening a channel with a high-level guide, she heard the words that would change her life: “Call me Anthony.”

But this book—written through the encouragement of Anthony—is so much more than a memoir; it candidly explores why the author became interested in channeling, how she learned the methods, who Anthony is, and how opening her channel changed her life.

“Tell them the story,” Anthony said. “Show them that it doesn’t have to be perfect, and that you don’t have to be a psychic medium or a professional channeller to connect with guidance levels. Let them see the messiness and hear the individual and personal way in which we communicate with you so they will be open to trying it themselves while being excited by their own unique results.”

Champions of the Dead: OPP Crime-fighters Seeking Proof of the Truth

In 1875, John Wilson Murray—known as “Canada’s Sherlock Holmes”—was appointed Ontario’s first permanent Government Detective, commissioned to investigate crimes such as murder, rape, and arson. His first homicide assignment was to look into the suspicious death of farmer Ralph Findlay, found dead of a gunshot wound.

More than a century after the inception of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB), retired OPP Inspector Andrew F. Maksymchuk explores the intervening years of Ontario’s law enforcement history. Through the first-hand perspective of a police officer, the reader is made privy to meticulous investigative procedures. Insight is given on cases as diverse as a prison inmate’s death by stabbing, a rash of suspicious fires, and the murder of a young girl.

Dedicated to the officers who have risked and lost their lives, the past and present are united as we read and remember the Champions of the Dead.

Funny Things Happened on My Way to the Cemetery

Ever been chased by a jealous husband swinging an axe? Or had your shoelaces and socks chewed by a cheetah while you couldn't move?  What about having a doctor pass out beside you while he was delivering your child?  If your answers are no, then you are lucky. If you want to find out how someone survived these wild and crazy adventures, read this book! The light-hearted autobiography of Hugh MacDonald recounts the laughable and unusual adventures and misadventures of a budding concert pianist, a minister of one of Canada’s largest churches, a college professor, a radio talk-show host, a Paris tour guide, and a civil marriage commissioner. 

MacDonald tells of being carried down a main street in Montreal completely naked; walking a marathon with raw eggs squishing in his boots; being forced to eat beef stew, well-flavoured with cat hair; inadvertently buying 3,125 condoms in preparation for his wedding; being marooned and coming close to death in a Northern Ontario blizzard; and so much more! MacDonald winds these yarns into an interesting account of his long and varied life. This book can be read in one sitting, or you can savour it as bedtime reading, enjoying one or two funny stories each night. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this humorous telling of MacDonald’s life.
