. MY LATEST BOOK IS THE GREAT CANADIAN ADVENTURE: FROM INDIAN COUNTRY TO NATIVE STATE. It tells the part usually left out of Canadian history books, the story of the heroism and survival of the First Nations people of Canada from 1600 to the present day. It is also a riveting adventure. IT IS NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON AND ON KINDLE. THE SECOND BOOK IS AN AUDIOBOOK OF MY NOVEL KULA KEIKI ALI'I that tells the real story of what happened to the children who became Hawaii's last five Monarchs as they were placed in a residential school for six years straight, the boys whipped and told how pagan and hopeless they were.. IT RUNS FOR SIX HOURS AS A MP3 AND CAN BE DOWNLOADED FROM AUDIBLE ON AMAZON.COM. it is also available on the I-tunes store.

This site emphasises my latest books. My second to latest book at the top is entitled "Not Really Coincidence: Tracing Your Purposeful Life." It is a guidebook to finding meaning and purpose in your life. A Purposeful Life is a blueprint we make for goals before we incarnate. Destiny Points are crossroads where we make decisions that either hinder or facilitate our Blueprint.

"At Eagle's Edge" is another recent book. It is a, environmental, adventure novel featuring the Great Bear Rain Forest and a sea lion caught in a oil spill caused by allowing huge tankers to travel up the pristine Central coast of British Columbia. I wrote it to support Environmental Groups trying to get facts out to a complacent public about the dangers from super tankers loaded with Dilbit (diluted Tar Sands Oil) being allowed to move through Pristine wilderness and coastal areas in winter, hurricane force winds.
Another non-fiction book that fits with "Not Really Coincidence" is another Metaphysical book "No Need To Say Goodbye" This book is autobigraphical and was written because of the unusual occurrence following the death of my beloved partner Edward Bird.
