After a twenty-year diverse, engaging, career in the field of Telecommunications the time had come for change. This exciting and challenging career provided financial security as the ability to employ a unique genre of creative writing. As fulfilling and stimulating utilizing these tools, my dream of writing novels was not realized.
Four years ago a long-time friend suggested I return to writing novels. I had not written a novel in many years (that body of work, waits in my desk drawer for renewed attention). The following day I was in front of my computer. The first novel in the series took flight. The innate passion of my life was reborn. It was my plan to write one thought-provoking novel until the same friend suggested a second novel. Now there are five in this series. The sixth and final of the series is in its first draft form.
I have four lovely dogs that sleep or play in my office as I work. Two of these little beasts are Yorkshire Terriers, Sammy and Chloe the other two, miniature dachshunds, Barney III (long story) and Cecil. There are two beautiful young men who rush into my office from time to time, my sons.
The additional passions of my life is working out each morning, meditating each afternoon and the gift of laughter. All of which are necessary when I sit in front of the computer and create “Political Thrillers”. I neglected to mention my manic consumption of six to eight bottles of spring water daily.
Thank you for exploring “The Lighthouse Keeper Series”. It is true, “Nothing in this world ever happens by mistake”, and when it happens it is always for our benefit.

Violence has been reduced, lives have been transformed, and inmates have regained their humanity.

The Teal Swan interview I personally feel could have been so much more.. slightly unorganized and not enough research into her before she was on. Keep up the show you guys are great
The "Hosts" Are Not Cut Out for Speaking!
I can really resonate with Maureen St. Germain, but the interviewers, if you can call them that, were really painful to listen to. The show "started" with them just sort of chit chatting, I don't think they were aware they were live. The two hosts, a male and female, then chatted about themselves being called by different names, Rick, Jane, Nick? Completely irrelevant banter.
After the show finally got started, the hosts only adjective was "cool". No questions for Ms. St. Germain, a lot of awkward dead air, and some snorts from the male host, ew. It was obvious no editing had been done on this podcast, but it still left the aforementioned issues for which no editing could have helped anyway. They were more enthusiastic about the artist of a song they played (spelled her name and mentioned her again at the end of the show) than they were of their terrific guest.
No preparation, no organization, no interviewing skills. They seemed like nice people, but they're just not cut out for this kind of work unless they're willing to learn and then work hard at it. Oh and the telephone/Skype connection kept getting diconnected and this further derailed the "interview."
Hosts are friendly and this show is much potential but they seem very often not to know what to say, leaving it all to the interviewee. There are lots of pauses and silences where it is clear they are unsure how to proceed and with such a wealth of useful information to share on the topics of the spiritual and metaphysical, this is a missed opportunity.
I wish them well and hope they are able to move forward successfully with improved material.
