From her carefree early life on a farm in rural South Australia to a marriage that was broken even before it began, then living as a struggling single mother and navigating a string of bad romances this is the story of a woman whose lessons in life and love have been learned the hard way.

Jules Hannaford grew up living an idyllic childhood, full of fun and adventures. She went to boarding school and had the time of her life, excelling at sport, making new friends and getting in trouble due to her risk taking and mischievous nature.

When single motherhood called for her to step up and take charge, she found her passion in her career as a teacher, yet she struggled to find someone to share her life with. One day, the opportunity came for her to move across the world, and she packed her bags, pulled her daughter out of school, and took the risk of leaving her sleepy home city for Asia's mega city of Hong Kong.

From then on, life was different. Suddenly, she was in a job she loved, and she no longer had to struggle to make ends meet, but there was still one thing missing. Love.

Optimistic, Jules began internet dating, and unwittingly invited a new kind of trouble into her life. Was it her trusting nature? Her naïveté? Or was it simply her desperate desire to share her life with someone that made her take the risks that almost cost her life.

A soldier discovers the cost of honor at the truce village of Panmunjom on the border of North Korea. An accurate day-by-day portrayal of what it was like to serve in an elite hand-picked force at Panmunjom in the 1970's. Freedom Pagoda is a story of bar girls and seedy nightclubs, perversion and taking advantage in a foreign country, of race hatred and intolerance. Tensions between American and North Korean fanatic soldiers existing in a decades-old winless military stalemate flare up. At Panmunjom the combat is face-to-face and hand-to-hand. Based on real events.

Reviews:

M.Valdez

Freedom Pagoda delivers the inside view of a young man's life inside the military, serving in a foreign country, and facing the challenges of life and love for the first time. While it gives you a good look inside the military and political workings of warring parties, it also is reflective of one man's life that is touching, raw and real. It's a boy becomes a man story that will leave you wondering when the sequel will be available.

Jim Mazour: I recommend this book to all JSA veterans. It will bring back lots of memories, especially for those who served in the unit during the early 1970's time period.

Why do we do the things we do? How do we shift from one place to another? One day, things are going fine, as we may find ourselves skipping gleefully and whistling while we work; the next day, we may find ourselves schlepping one foot in front of the other with our heads hung low. How did author Peter Osterbauer go from being a successful and respected husband, father, and doctor living in a large home on the side of a mountain, to an adulterous, alcoholic, occultist living in a tiny room in someone's basement he found on Craigslist? How and why do we sabotage ourselves? More importantly, how do we shift back on track once we've dug ourselves into a pit?

Life can be the same. We can be working toward some goal, be it a college degree, starting a family, or living a peaceful life, and a slight shift can send us in a different direction. One small shift can start a chain reaction, sending us into a tailspin of destruction or on the road to freedom. 

Join author Peter Osterbauer as he reveals how this type of change transpired in his life, and explore how it may have happened in yours. Together, you will discover how to make corrective shifts if you have wandered off the straight and narrow course. If you are trapped in a way of life that you detest, but don't know how to find your way out, this book is for you. If you are in quicksand of shame and self-loathing, this book is for you. If you've lost all hope and are on the verge of giving up, this book is definitely for you!...
A family of three tied up, each with a gun to their head, “Where's the money? Where's the fucking money?” one of the intruders yelled. A petrified daughter tortured and forced to listen to her parents being shot in cold blood. “I heard shots, like pops,” she told the 911 operator, “somebody's broke into our home, please, I need help!” Was this a home invasion? Or something else, more sinister, a deadly betrayal.

The real-life horror story that happened inside the Pan family home shocked their normally peaceful upscale Toronto neighborhood. The Pans were an example of an immigrant family. Hann and his wife, Bich Pan, fled from Vietnam to Canada after the U.S.-Vietnamese war to find a better life. Their daughter, Jennifer, was an Olympic-caliber figure skater, an award-winning pianist, and a straight A student.

The Pans worked their way up in this rags-to-riches story, now living in a beautiful home with luxury cars in the driveway. Was it these expensive items that lured three intruders with guns into their home on the night of November 8, 2010?...

Latest Poem

I was alone

when I went searching

   for your face

in all the crowded bars

where love hides out

under an assumed name.

           

There were many other faces

decorated with whiskey smiles

   and anxious lips

ready to whisper

anything I wanted to hear

but never telling me

what I really

   needed to know.

 

Why do those faces

always look so desirable

   at night

and so terribly lonely

when the morning sun

invades my one-room world

and splashes across

   the tumbled bed?

 

I didn't know your name

   then

or even what you looked like.

But I recognized you

by the sadness

in your eyes.

   Or was it

the reflection

of my own

lonely stare?

(Excerpt from the “Sadness of Happy Times” by Lou Duro: www.louduro.com)
