Historical Fiction

 

 

It's 1943 on the American home front, and Ella's pent-up, common-law husband finally decides to leave their farm and enlist. Ella must either depart their seafaring town in coastal Delaware to pursue other dreams inland or try to save their farm. Their grade-school son, Reese, won't budge, and Ella sees that farmers have a patriotic duty to stay on the land.

The bay and ocean waters before them have been preyed upon by German U-boats, and their village has become a refuge for survivors. When an officer from a surrendered German submarine is sent to her as part of POW farm labor, can Ella embrace the help in order to survive? And what happens when Dieter becomes more than a hand to her, amidst prying eyes and under her beloved but conflicted son's watch? How will she choose when her explosive husband returns from Europe wounded from infantry duty against the Germans?

In ELLA'S WAR, we travel a journey amongst women and men whose lives are deeply altered by the circumstances of WWII. What heroic or questionable choices must they make to be true to themselves and come through the great conflict?

Action/Adventure/Thriller

Date Published: 02-06-2024

Publisher: Sunbury Press, Inc.


 

REAP THE WIND is THE PERFECT STORM meets THE FIRM.

 

The novel  is an action/adventure thriller in which three lawyers flee Houston heading to Cincinnati in a rented Lincoln Town Car. They must drive across Texas and the Midwest in the midst of the worst climate change-induced hurricane of the century so Josh Goldberg can be with his girlfriend who is giving birth to their baby. They have to survive a hurricane, tornado, hailstorm, driving rain, and each other to get there.

Josh’s travel companions are his best friend—an alcoholic, drug-addicted lawyer—and his boss who connives to derail his plans so she can get to Philadelphia for a business meeting with a Norwegian billionaire. The odyssey is dangerous on many levels and may be a suicide trip.




Review
I like how the characters grew into a great team. Like the personality growth. The adventure is very descriptive and interesting.
This was an absolutely amazing story, holding you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. You didn't know how they were going to get out of all the situations they were in. It is definitely a great roller coaster ride. 
Treat yourself to a great piece of story telling.

Philosophic meditations in poetic form on the meaning of eternity for 72 famous persons

 

Poetry

Date Published: January 15, 2024

 

 

As a philosopher once surmised: talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius, he insisted, hits a target no one else can see. The greatest artists and thinkers are the greatest seers. They do not imagine ... only and merely. They study the facts, they think the facts, they feel the facts, until the facts, the acts of faith, the articles of invention, dissolve in the naked light of the hitherto unseen, until fact, faith, and invention fall away like Halloween masks, like swaddling clothes; and then, leaving behind the tricks and the treats, they teach us what to hallow: the nakedness of a newborn joy, perpetually born anew, a joy that can never die, because it never quite knows, but never fails to enjoy, how early it already is, and how young it was always going to be.

All thinking, carried far enough, ends in paradox: trying to think the unthinkable. All feeling, carried far enough, ends in paradox: trying to feel the unfeelable. But one can feel the unthinkable, and think the unfeelable. To do so is to think with one's feelings and to feel with one's thoughts. Then, and only then, is it possible to hit a target that no one else can see. To experience deeply (profoundly and creatively) is to think with your feelings and to feel with your thoughts. And there's a first and last to every thought, to every feeling. To think the first, to feel the first, as if it were the last, and to do so intensely is to know nothingness, to experience death. Yes, this is paradox. To think the last, to feel the last, as if it were the first, and to do so intensely is to experience life, a life that never ends, precisely because – like a box without sides – it is without beginnings and without ends. Yes, this is paradox too.

This book continues the conspiracy of significance, the dialectic of nowhere and now here, that began with The History of Eternity. Read this sequel, Passages to Eternity, and follow, if you will, the destiny of this paradox as it unfolds in the lives of 72 historic individuals, including Rilke, Peirce, Aeschylus, Pythagoras, Wordsworth, Ibsen, Santayana, Wilde, St. Teresa, Melville, Whitman, Beethoven, Godel, Michelangelo, Leibniz, Thucydides, Ovid, Empedocles, Mann, Plato, Borges, St. James, Baudelaire, Bradley, Arendt, Auden, Maistre, T.S. Eliot, Democritus, Bruegel, Unamuno, Flaubert, Girard, Calvino, Holderlin, William James, Tacitus, Jaspers, St. Paul, Pater, Anaximander, Solzhenitsyn, Nicholas of Cusa, Picasso, Joyce, Berlioz, Marcus Aurelius, Tolstoy, Rose, Kant, Tennessee Williams, Amos, Crane, Toynbee, Wharton, Hegel, Cavafy, Schmitt, Celan, Shankara, Heisenberg, Gibbon, Luther, Frost, Anaxagoras, Nabokov, Adorno, Conrad, Naipaul, Euripides, Ramanuja and many others.


About the Author

Mr. James E. Winder was born on June 16, 1953, in Athens, Tennessee, and graduated summa cum laude from Vanderbilt University in 1975 with a B.A. in philosophy and literature. He earned an M.A. in philosophy from Purdue University in 1980.

James Winder spent the lion’s share of his career as a mid-level manager and intelligence analyst for the National Security Agency (NSA), where he retired in 2013 after 30 years of service. At NSA, Mr. Winder’s most noteworthy assignment was in 1991-1992, when he served as Assistant Director of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB). During that time, he co-authored a report for President George H.W. Bush on intelligence lessons learned during the first Gulf War and provided extensive research and documentation on a wide range of other matters of great interest to the PFIAB board members. In a special commendation, then Acting PFIAB Chairman, Admiral Bobby Ray Inman, cited Mr. Winder for his “expert advice to the President of the United States” and for his “extremely incisive and timely contributions on some very complex issues.”

During three decades at NSA, Mr. Winder produced three classified, book-length studies, most notably including a comprehensive report on an important topic, which won NSA’s annual Cryptologic Literature Award. In addition, he wrote a wide variety of other in-depth reports on Soviet intelligence, terrorism, and technical threats to U.S. telecommunications.

Mr. Winder is also the author of The History of Eternity, a series of philosophic meditations in poetic form, which is, according to Mr. Winder, the cryptic story of his life and the lives of many others. There is – in the history of philosophy and literature – no other work that is akin to it in nature and scope.

Review

I found the book inviting, readable, and gracious in spirit. It really delves deeper than I was expecting in a good way. We get history, we get philosophy, we get science, art, and so much more. Deep dives into everything and how they all relate. 

The attention to detail and research that must have gone into this shine in the way the author is able to convey his points to the reader.

Self-Help, Self Reflection

Date Published: 5/25/2022

 

 

We all have a certain role to play in what we want the world to look like. What the world looks and feels like today is because of our actions – or inactions; there is always a price to pay for both. The need to understand that we are responsible for what the world is today cannot be overemphasized. We are either living in it carelessly, carefully scheming and orchestrating conflicts that will last many generations, or transferring in our young ones hatred about others which they, moving forward, transfer into theirs.

‘The World in My Eyes’ is a masterpiece by Kayode Michael Arimoro as he, through his experiences and reflections, is making a conscious effort to urge everyone to pause for a moment, take account of how our actions and inactions have impacted the world, and make a conscious effort to making the world a better place than we met it.

Review

I loved the characters, which always tends to get me invested in a book right away. 

The story flowed so well, that I could not put it down, in fact, I didn't!

 It's exactly the kind of story we need. Well done! So much inspiration in these pages.  Highly recommended!



  About the Author

Born in Muncie, IN, Craig is as typical middle-America as they come. He was young when his parents divorced and his grandmother came to live with him, his mother, and two sisters. Seeing his grandmother’s faith in God on a regular basis led him to accept and know everything is okay, God’s in charge.

Craig served 20 years in the U.S. Air Force and followed this as a DoD contractor where he had multiple tours overseas and around the U.S. While there were events in his life that tested his faith in God, nothing compared to when his first son was born with major medical issues. As a twenty-one-year-old father with a young devastated wife, his faith had never been tested more. After enduring several surgeries, some considered experimental, his son passed away at six months and two weeks. But even in his brief life, he had a tremendous impact on Craig and others.

Since then, God has blessed Craig with two more sons and has been a constant guidance in his life. Craig’s time in the military and as a contractor afterward included over 20 years overseas, where he was part of local mission churches. On their last return to the states, God led him and his wife to Oklahoma, where he teaches Bible studies and serves in a local church.

The memory of what God did to help him through his parent’s divorce, his son’s illness and death, and many other events in his life, has led him to want to share what impact God had and has with him.

Nowhere are we promised a life without tragedies, setbacks, problems, or devastating events we have no control over, but God’s word does promise, ‘It’s okay, God’s in charge.’
