For the People

           AmazongButton BNbutton

America is still the greatest country in the world, but it is plagued with many challenges that have been ignored or exacerbated by our leaders. The American people are fed up, tired, and angry. It is time for the people to rise up and take our country back!

For the People gives an American citizen’s voice to the people’s dissatisfaction with how our leaders in Washington have managed, or, more accurately, mismanaged the people’s affairs. Americans are exhausted with the constant bickering between Congress and the Executive branch of our government that has resulted in years of stagnation. The turmoil has caused far too many citizens to lament the demise of the American dream of prosperity and upward mobility.

This book is a wakeup call to all Americans to ignore the rhetoric of all candidates and cast their crucial vote for the candidate who is best qualified to protect and secure the future of the United States of America.

The Courage to Be Different will inspire readers to overcome adversity to chart a new path to success and happiness. For those who have grown up in a dysfunctional family, success and happiness are often elusive. Familial patterns are hard to break, and when you aren’t taught the basics—the difference between right and wrong, how to cope with daily life, plan for the future, or communicate without violence—it’s easy to follow the unhappy ruts laid down by those who went before you. But then there are those who choose to be different and blaze new trails. Set against the gritty backdrop of the boroughs of New York City, this is a heartbreaking yet inspirational story of how to fight to break free and forge a different future away from the cycle of verbal abuse and violence.

Learn how the author reversed the negative effects of his early abusive experiences…ultimately finding The Courage to Be Different.

The Courage To Be Different (Second Edition)
Divergent Lives

Divergent Lives


Divergent Lives is an important book on two fronts: It sets a story that will touch readers about family and brotherhood, and it will open up a conversation about narcissism hidden in a fractured personality.

Contact with a narcissist can be at once exhilarating and confusing, hurtful, and seductive. It can make you feel like you are losing your mind, yet without an understanding of why you feel that way.  This book will help you recognize the many ways narcissism looks and how it seduces in relationships, friendships and at work. Understanding the disease of narcissism can also help the non-narcissist begin to heal. The author shows how to deal with emotions, and learn how to step back and away from the damaging effects of a narcissistic person. It is a powerful story that encourages and guides others to heal from the pain narcissism has perpetrated in their lives.
