My name is Gemini, and my life is a bloody mess. I almost kill my mother; my overbearing father exiles me out of the nest; one of my sisters wants to neuter me so stupidity doesnt breed; my dead grandmother wants me to complete stupid missions for her, and a witch thinks Im an arrogant and rude dragon, so she turns me human. Then I get captured by guards from a kingdom notorious for being cruel to males, and they make me their slave for three years. Their queen decides shes had enough of my sarcastic idiocy and sells me to a neighboring kingdom where I get stuck in a new dungeon: kinghood. Apparently I make enemies wherever I go. I have dragon slayers poaching in my kingdom and my armys commander desperately wanting to kill me so he could be king. All I want is to find a way to break my curse and get my scales back . . . and for my father to stop treating me like a hatchling. Is that too much to ask for?

Christians of the Lie is a detective story. The corpus delicti is our current religious conditions: The disillusionment over religious institutions, the willingness to accept uncritically just about any religious doctrine, and the angst of modern man. Who did it? Thanks to current research we now know what Jesus taught. It is labeled Shepherd Theology. Thanks to research we know how the philosophy of Stoicism penetrated the early church and then distorted that churchs message down to our own time. Christians of the Lie ends in a vision of what could happen if Shepherd Theology were put into practice today.

I Am God (and So Are You, My Friend): A Common Man’s Guide to Oneness is a book that presents itself at an extremely urgent time for our race (the human race). As the walls of separation, hatred, and divisiveness become more apparent with each passing day, it becomes obvious that traditional methods for peace have not worked. Oneness is the state of being completely united with one and all. It is our inherent nature that our society has grown away from due to many things, but mainly our ego. The only way back to living in peace is through the unity that oneness represents. This book explains how our society got to this boiling point of separation through our own collective consciousness (yes, our world is in this shape from our own doing). And the only way to reverse that current collective consciousness is through oneness. This book not only proves how we are connected at our very core but it also gives examples of how understanding oneness changes your life immediately, which in turn effects our world collectively.

It really did happen. Honestly and truly it did.
