The Third Last Communique

A Psychological Thriller

Three people from totally different backgrounds with unique gifts, will come together in the most extraordinary of circumstances. Through tragedy and euphoria, these three individuals will discover mind blowing knowledge that inevitably will change the world as we know it, forever.

James an Australian family man, Haloke a female native American astronaut, and Nadeeka a little girl living in a small fishing village in Sri Lanka, venture into realms of unsettling but wondrous revelations.

The story ends as it begun, only in this instance it will occur at a different point in time and place.

About the Author

Living on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria with my wife Liz and having taken up writing only a handful of years ago I have discovered to my great joy the wonderful world of creating stories. I hope who ever may read this book will in some way escape into my vision of wonderment and intrigue of unadulterated realms of the imagination. Photography by Peter Lamont.

Blue Water Warriors

Blue Water Warriors tells the story to the early Sydney to Hobart yacht races. Drawing on log books and memories of the navigator on a legendary competing yacht, a living part of Australia’s maritime history.

The Mistral II’s crew encountered dangers and hazards not generally faced by today’s competitors, without life rafts, radios and no propeller that was deliberately removed. At one point there were death-defying moments where Mistral II came terrifyingly close to being smashed against the tremendous cliffs of Tasman Island.

Blue Water Warriors chronicles the fierce rivalry between Mistral II and Morna, at that time the most famous yachts in Australia, and tells of more relaxed times on the return voyages to Sydney

PAPERBACK

The KGB’s Genius of Illusion

The space race started just after World War 11. It was to be an epic battle between the Soviet Union and the United States of America. World dominance and superiority was the coveted prize.
Espionage was rife.

Soviet Dimitri Azorov infiltrated into the USA. He mingled into society and influential circles with high success whilst despatching vital information on metallurgy.

Simultaneously a disgruntled former Japanese soldier attempts to sabotage several metal foundries producing exotic alloys for rocket components.

About the Author

I have learned so much about this race, the yachts and the people of the era and for that I am better educated and wiser. I hope some of this rubs off onto you, the reader.

I was fortunate enough to sit on the balcony of a cruise ship for a few days while working on this book. I would often gaze out to sea and contemplate the vastness of the ocean and the braveness and tenacity of the sailors in the early days. They truly were ‘blue water warriors’.

English Grammar Book

A great resource for those needing a practical, concise and clear explanation of the principles and use of English Grammar.

The book is 145 pages divided into easy read chapters.

From the Author

I completed my “Masters in English” with “Awards Of College Colours” and “Roll Of Honour” in the sports field (professional boxer) and came to Australia on a scholarship in 2008. In Australia, I got the chance to meet people from all countries and do further English language research. This book is written after interviewing natives of many countries, having an English second language, and understanding the problems they face in the English language. This classical piece of work is an efficient tool for those who want to learn the basic logistics of the English language. It will significantly help to master skills in sentences building, formation, correct usage, and structure. In addition, it will work as a “One-Stop-Shop” for Grammarians.

It takes extensive time to complete this book due to my tight schedule and high volume of interviews from people worldwide. I spend lots of time (Ground Zero) at the University of Adelaide, University of South Australia, and Flinders University (Australia) for my research work, even-thou I was never a student of these universities. Now that, despite voluminous odds, this book has happened, I have hopes and prayers regarding it.

I am fortunate that Navneet Kaur (Masters in English, Roll Of Honour Holder, functioned as strategic-Journalist in “The Tribune” Newspaper) scrutinize the manuscript and proposed expansions.

I am indebted to sharp-witted Advocate, Mr. Inderbir Singh S/O Mr. J.J Singh Hundal (Comdt.) for helpful thoughts and working on all legalities.

I wish to record my gratitude to my wife, Engr. Karamveer Kaur (M. tech), for help with graphics (pictures, tables). She was unstinted support at every corner with affection and analysis. It is reverential to admit that my father was the strongest pillar of support and guidance.

At last, I am obliged and fortunate that I got an opportunity to complete my research work (Masters) under the guidance of intellectuals like Professor, Mrs. Reetinder Joshi (Govt. College Ludhiana) and Prof. Kalia (Head of Dept. S.C.D.  Govt. College Ludhiana).

Tapestries of Time

Carol Linley with Margot J.

Luisa Kelly always believed in her Pa Angus’ foretelling that one day she would tell her story. He had implied during an extremely tough time in her life that there was a greater purpose to all Luisa was experiencing and that one day she would share it with the world. She patiently waited and waited for the right time and means. Once that opportunity arose, Luisa bravely embarked on an incredible journey.

Tapestries of Time is the product of her exploration. What has evolved is the narrative of an incredibly resilient woman reflecting on her life. Remarkable vulnerability is contained in Luisa’s recollections, inseparable from the courage exposed when extremely raw, deep and difficult emotions surfaced.
Yes, this book is about remembering and retelling. Yet the cumulative process has been purposeful in the coalescence of her transformation; in enabling Luisa to reflect, reveal and reclaim her heart’s truths, thereby rediscovering her true nature. Amidst the plethora of colours, images, emotions and situations offered, you will undoubtably find yourself somewhere in her tapestry picture.
