Malibu: August 1983. It’s the day of Nina Riva’s annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer, the other a renowned photographer; and their adored baby sister, Kit. Together the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over—especially as the offspring of the legendary singer Mick Riva.
The only person not looking forward to the party of the year is Nina herself, who never wanted to be the center of attention, and who has also just been very publicly abandoned by her pro tennis player husband. Oh, and maybe Hud—because it is long past time for him to confess something to the brother from whom he’s been inseparable since birth.
Jay, on the other hand, is counting the minutes until nightfall, when the girl he can’t stop thinking about promised she’ll be there.
And Kit has a couple secrets of her own—including a guest she invited without consulting anyone.
By midnight the party will be completely out of control. By morning, the Riva mansion will have gone up in flames. But before that first spark in the early hours before dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family’s generations will all come rising to the surface.

In his bestselling books, The Plant Paradox and The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Steven R. Gundry offered game-changing perspectives on our wellbeing. In The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry expands upon his previous discussions of gut, microbiome, and mitochondrial health, linking immune malfunction to the mental and physical symptoms of fatigue—including exhaustion, brain fog, depression, anxiety, and low metabolism.
As Dr. Gundry explains, feeling tired, moody, and zapped of energy is not normal, no matter your workload or age. Fatigue is an SOS flare from the body, one that is intended to alert us that something is wrong. In his clinical work, Dr. Gundry has found that his patients who complain of feeling sick and tired all the time almost always have something in common: the inflammation markers of a leaky gut.
In The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry will offer readers the information and tools necessary to quiet the autoimmune battle raging within—a battle that depletes precious energy reserves, leaving you drained and prone to mood disorders and weight gain. With new guidelines on how to increase mitochondrial energy production and nourish the microbiome; 30 new Plant Paradox-approved recipes; and lists of energy-boosting foods to consume and energy-depleting foods to avoid, The Energy Paradox will help readers take back their lives, giving them the energy they need to feel, look, and be their best.
Somewhere near the heart of existence, shimmers the ethereal beauty of the mystery of Time. Though seemingly familiar to us all, time harbours secrets that penetrate the very deepest levels of reality, and though we feel certain in our conviction that we’re swept forth upon the crest of its never-ending flow, with Einstein’s discovery of relativity came what is perhaps the most stunning realisation in the entire history of scientific thought – the wondrously breathtaking revelation that in reality, there’s actually no such thing as the passage of time…
How can this extraordinary truth be reconciled with the reality we so surely suppose to experience? What does it mean for the very human concerns of life and death, free will, identity, and self? What should it mean for our philosophy? And how should it inform our world view?
The search for answers leads through the fantastical realm of quantum physics, and the strange parallel worlds it describes, as we discover that the answers which such questions provoke, are perhaps even more profound than the questions themselves.
Buried deep within the riddle of time, lies the staggering beauty of the world. As we peel back the layers to try and sneak a glimpse into eternity, we find a light shining not only upon the nature of reality, but on the nature of ourselves…

It had been fifty years since the assassination of president Kennedy when a secret journal was made available to this author indicating there might possibly be answers to what really happened that tragic day in November 1963.
The journal’s notes revealed that the president had secretly recruited a group of young men to help him keep an eye on certain activities in the intelligence community, most notably the CIA. When the president’s death created more questions than answers, the group of men stayed together to find out who really killed the president and why.
I was asked to write the book and began combining the journal’s information with my own description of the characters, places, and relationships. Though I’m sure most publishers would classify this book as fiction, I think of it as being analogous to a reporter’s anonymous sources. This is the story about various individuals who, for one reason or another, came together for only one reason: To kill the president of the United States. Some of the names were changed for obvious reasons, and I am the first to urge the reader to to make up their own mind as to whether it happened this way or not.
Every once in a while a book challenges us on what we think we know or have been taught. On the subject of tithing, many people have opinions, thoughts and interpretations about what tithing means in the Bible, but rarely have people done a complete empirical study on this biblical practice from eons past and its requirement in the New Testament Church. Some believe that the most effective way to teach tithing is to interpret it as paying a tenth of income to the church in perpetuity. Certainly no other biblical doctrine has caused such consternation as when monetary tithing is challenged. Therefore, this book deals, not with theories and opinions about monetary tithing but with well-proven theology, scriptural principles, hermeneutical facts and the Hebrew language to define what tithing really is and is not. Journey through the pages of the Bible to find the untwisted truth about the centuries-old teachings on tithes and offerings.

The notes become a key to locating a religious discovery even greater than the Dead Sea Scrolls, and unleash a 750-year old time-capsule of revenge that threatens to shake the Church of Rome to its foundations.
The massacre of the Cathars and the true story of Otto Rahn are interweaved and then continued with the fictional search for the treasure and relic. Rich in historical detail, this fascinating and absorbing story, set in France and London, climaxes with a thought-provoking and controversial conclusion that brings The Heretics’ Revenge.
The colour of your skin or where you come from should never affect how people look at you.
The world changed after September 2001, when the twin towers were downed by two hijacked aircraft crashing into them and into the Pentagon. People of all creed and colour condemned the attacks and the murder of innocents in the name of religion.
Brothers in arms do not care about the colour of your skin; for them, it is about the loyalty you have for one and another. When you are in heat of the battle, who cares if the person fighting next to you is from a different religion; he is your brother, he has your back and will die and fight with you.
What 9/11 did was paint a red target on every person of colour as a potential threat. All religions preach happiness, peace, and love.
Aman, a young British Asian, fights for these very reasons’ loyalty, love and honour is his backbone. His brothers in arms do not look at him because he is Asian but just as another soldier doing his job and being there as a unit.
The valour shown by these young soldiers can only be admired; most of them, if they return, will never be the same mentally and physically. Many will suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, proud men with deep scars of the theatre of war.
