 World War II, The Philippines. Johnny Oldfield tells what it's like to grow up in a Japanese prison camp, his pivotal teenage years filled with danger and defeat, adventure and intrigue, cruelty and betrayal, starvation and death, survival and liberation.

 

Johnny calls himself a WONK (from the Chinese won gau, yellow dog) a mongrel running with a pack of rebellious kids and viewing his society from the ground up.

 

Separated from his father by the Japanese invasion, he gets his life lessons from a diverse cast of characters: his mother Ruth, a nurse with a strong and independent spirit; Harry Barnes, a storyteller who arrives from China carrying the urn of a friend's ashes; Southy Jack, an ex-pro boxer who trains boys in the manly art; Polecat, a mestizo pal with an all-consuming hatred for the Japanese; the Colonel, a wise old plantation owner who gives advice on survival; Haverford, a disgruntled alcoholic from Manila's high society; and Abiko, the feared officer of the Japanese camp guard.

 

This dramatic tale is played out in the heart of Manila, a city once called “the Pearl of the Orient,” now being destroyed bymassive bombing, strafing, artillery barrages and mortar attacks.

 

...

This parable should really be entitled “The Parable of the Soil”, because the story, and the truths emphasized therein, do not focus on the one sowing seed. The focus of the story is about the soil. It's about dirt. In Matthew 13, Jesus taught how the hearts of people can differ regarding openness, or receptiveness, to God's Word. And who knows the hearts of mankind better than the Creator/Carpenter? He has the dirt on all of us!...

He was just a kid when he first broke the surly bonds of earth. Bitten by the freedom of flight bug on his fifth birthday, Ralph Parr had what seemed like a never-ending horizon in front of him. Thankfully, his parents instilled in him a strong moral compass and the willingness to work, thus framing a young man with an extraordinary goal-oriented personality, traits that would pay off like the lottery years later. Even save his life!

Ralph learned many attributes during his adolescent years, but his learning curve was pulled into the vertical when he joined the United States Air Force after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Nobody knew then that he would distinguish himself during a 34-year career by flying combat missions in WWII, the Korean War where he was a Double Ace, and the Vietnam War.

When undaunted adversity and life-threatening events collide, “On Parr” divulges how this true American Patriot digs deep, rises to the top, and perseveres. You'll absorb the effects of his red stripe and many life lessons including his “short string” concept.

Feeling intrigued?  Good. Simply, scroll to the top of this page to buy “On Parr” and get started today.

Someone is stealing Sully Wheeler's cattle. Are they trying to force him out? Or are they after him because he's an old time gun hand hiding from his past? And who is this red-coated Constable Theason who insists on investigating? Is this just cattle rustling or something else? The local newspaper seems to be more interested in what the Mounties are doing within their ranks than following the story of thieves and lost property; why is that?

With the rustlers on one side, his commanders treating him like a pariah, the press wanting information he can't supply, a partner he doesn't really trust, will Theason manage to survive?

Renowned psychiatrist, Harley Swan, has had enough – enough of the patients with one too many personalities; enough of the psychopaths, sociopaths, depressed, disjointed, and delusional; enough of the wife who can't stand the sight of him, the colleagues who don't understand or appreciate him, and the friends who come and go with all the frequency and warmth of a wayward breeze.  Enough.

So, Harley sets out on a journey, hoping to extricate himself from a life so absurdly rooted, and, in the process, rise above the bewilderment and mendacity of a cold and chaotic world. But when the journey leads to a dead body here, and a dead body there, Harley finds himself on the run, trailed only by a long-buried secret, and the deranged cop who stumbles upon it.

Swan, now available wherever books are sold.

Latest Poem

The Black in me is sharp
My skin speaks for itself
It shines and glows
Like black pearls on a shelf

Don't question me of me
No don't do that at all
Just enjoy my light 
Cause my color stand tall

I am proud to be here
I am proud with every right
Outstretched arms hugging all
One love that's my fight

Shout and rejoice 
I am Black and proud
I am one in a million
I am unique from the crowd.
