without the Red Room

But can it be real?


Gorgeous Dominque likes sex—wild, kinky, and lots of it.  Secretly longing for something real and lasting, she settles for less, burying her insecurity and self-doubt between late night trysts and bulimia.  But before long, she's forced to face her fears, or succumb to them.


Four friends…each hiding behind a facade.

things aren't always as they appear.

Breaking Point, a novel by John Rhodes, tells the story of the Battle of Britain and the men and women who fought it...

It's August, 1940. Hitler's triumphant Third Reich has crushed all Europe—except Britain. As Hitler launches a massive aerial assault, only the heavily outnumbered British RAF and the iron will of Winston Churchill can stop him. The fate of Western civilization teeters in the balance. Johnnie Shaux, a Spitfire fighter pilot, knows that the average life expectancy of a pilot is a mere five hours of operational flying time. Sooner or later his luck will run out. Yet he must constantly summon up the fortitude to fly into conditions in which death is all but inevitable and continue to do so until the inevitable occurs…Meanwhile, Eleanor Rand, a WAAF staff officer in RAF headquarters, is struggling to find her role in a man's world and to make a contribution to the battle. She studies the control room maps that track the ebb and flow of conflict, the aerial thrust and parry, and begins to see the glimmerings of a radical strategic breakthrough…Breaking Point is based on the actual events of six days in the historic Battle of Britain. The story alternates between Johnnie, face to face with the implacable enemy; and Eleanor, in 11 Group headquarters, using ‘zero-sum' game theory to evolve a strategic model of the battle....

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.

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.

Latest Poem

He rode an old McClellan that had seen better days

But he sat up there like a king who controlled all he surveyed

His mount a buckskin mare as pretty as you’ve seen

With legs meant for working and eyes bright and clean

Behind him trailed a mule, a fine example of the breed

A pack piled high with goods but no halter or a lead

 

I asked him where he’s headed and where he might have been

The reason for his travel and what he might have seen

“I’ve seen the greatest country that God ever made

Sometimes mountain vistas, sometimes a grassy plain.

I’ve seen family members who make me feel ashamed

And many fellow workers who lie their way to fame

 

I’ve seen herds of caribou clicking cross the plain

Massive Mountain Grizzlies, great horses wild and tame.

I’ve seen massive progress ended by greedy fools

Or by those who need control and impose silly rules

And others stopping growth by thinking with their heart

When simple logic tells ‘em the horse is behind the cart.

 

We all get our little chance but others need a turn

The younger need some room to grow to build to learn

When I’ve done my time, my life here is thru

I don’t want my final vision to be only gloom and fools.

I’ll be free of all that as will the mule and mare

We’ve trod the greatest land, together scenery shared

 

It all makes my former life shallow and pale

And now where I travel nothing is ever stale

I’ve had my days of wealth measured in dollars and cents

With days, weeks and years surrounded by wall and fence

But now I have much more, a far greater treasure

Surrounded by natures wonders, beauty that can’t be measured

 

 

Any measure of success may not be right for all

The test that has some rise up will make others fall

I hope the path I travel and the message that I preach

Will be heard and understood by people that I meet

No one has the right to say that my view is wrong

Nor do I have the right to condemn another’s song

 

But enjoy the journey and help your fellow man

Have a laugh and learn, and make a proper stand

For something you believe, give it a proper fight

And if you should lose and you know you might

Within your heart you’ll know you did your very best

And did what you thought right when put to the test.
