I am an author and a Bible teacher. The Bible is — by far — my favorite book. I read it regularly in the original languages (Greek and Hebrew) and several literal English translations, frequently in the German (usually the Elberfelder) and the Greek OT (the Septuagint), and occasionally in the Latin, the Syriac, and Delitzsch’s Hebrew NT. My areas of study include Bible languages, eschatology (prophecy), apologetics, ancient history (with a particular interest in ancient catastrophism), and electric universe cosmology. Currently my wife, Nita, and I live in Harvey, ND, where I share in the ministry of the Word at Harvey Gospel Chapel. We have four children and ten grandchildren.
My life experiences are varied. I have been, among other things, an Airborne Ranger, a carpenter, a truck driver, a farm hand, a factory worker, a sawmill hand, a car salesman, an insurance salesman, a daytrader, a Jiffy Lube tech, and a propane truck driver. I designed and built a square-timber log home. I climbed Mt. Rainier once and Granite Peak in Montana three times. I am a man of simple pleasures. I enjoy backpacking, hiking, campfires, mountains, sunrises and sunsets, thunderstorms, starry skies, northern lights, coffee, dark chocolate, reading, friends, and good conversation. My favorite genres of music include the whisper of the wind in the pines, the call of Canadian geese, the cry of the loon, the bugle of a bull elk, hymns, worship music, and classical music.
“Men’s hearts shall fail from fear…for the planets of the heavens shall be shaken” (Luke 21:26). When rookie astronomer Irina Kirilenko discovers a planet-size comet in the Kuiper Belt on a collision course for Mars, she first faces stonewalling from the Minor Planet Center, then coercion and stricture from NASA. They press her to embrace an ingenious reinterpretation of her discovery and ban her from talking about it.
It slowly dawns on her that the government is fostering a massive conspiracy to keep the public oblivious to the truth—Earth is facing an existential threat. Unwilling to be silenced, she recruits fellow astronomer Ariele Serrafe to evaluate her discovery, placing both in the crosshairs of government agents. Set in a dystopian vision of the near future, The Rogue, the first volume of the Planets Shaken series, weaves the threads of biblical prophecy, ancient history, government conspiracy, and electric universe theory into a thought-provoking, tensely plotted thriller—one that asks us to reconsider the nature of the universe and the destiny of the world.
C O Wyler
Owning a business for over thirty years, Wyler was born in Southern California, lives with her husband in the Pacific Northwest, and enjoys their sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren. This is her first novel. Visit her website - click here.
What would you do if your husband was missing, you do not want to be pregnant, you witness a horrific airplane accident, and you learn all babies and young children have disappeared? Twenty-eight-year-old Sarah Colton may think she is in control, but she is far from the truth, not realizing the Rapture has occurred.
Amazon Review: "Untakenable" by author C.O. Wyler is a thought provoking book novel about what happens right after the rapture for the ones not taken, the untakenables. It takes a straightforward, no tiptoeing around look at the chaos and confusion that might be happening after Christ calls His children home. This is the tale of photojournalist, Sarah who is married to Dennis. Each chapter is dedicated to a person she is interacting with or discusses. Dennis and his brother are raised by their Aunt Amy after their parents die. Sarah cannot get along with the aunt for obvious reasons once you get involved in the book.
Author Wyler has a unique writing style. This book is written in a narrative. Sarah tells her story and even asks the reader questions as if in a real conversation. Readers will be able to picture the settings easily. Characters are easily identifiable either as someone you know or with traits you have yourself. This is a book about reflection and faith. Wyler's concern is for the emptiness of life without the acceptance and peace of belief.
Born in the south of France, the eldest of a family of five children, my origins are French and Moroccan. From the age of thirteen, my favorite hobby was writing French poems and songs. I initially pursued a degree in business administration, but a few years later developed a strong desire to sing. Unfortunately, circumstances didn't allow me to pursue this promising career.
In 1995, I came to the United Kingdom to improve my English. Struggling to make a living while in the UK, my life turned around when I believed and was baptized into Christ Jesus, confessing Him as my Lord and Saviour. I saw the power of God at work in my life.
It was this experience that motivated me to write this first book "Knowing God", which I believe will help those who are seeking God to get a better understanding of the riches of the Kingdom of God.
Mike Masi began his adult life as a dancer performing in nearly every major concert hall in the United States including Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Knee damage led to stints as a waiter, accountant, oilfield roustabout and commercial airline pilot. He lives in an ancient hilltop village near the Adriatic Sea where life's most important things are at his doorstep: good food, good coffee, good wine, good people and a soundtrack of church bells marking the graceful passage of time. A violent donkey crash is highly unlikely. A DAY THAT GOD MADE is his first book. He is currently at work on a novel.
In a remote area of southwest Alaska a small cargo plane in heavy weather slams into the frozen ground at nearly two hundred miles per hour and disintegrates. Nine hundred square miles of white, empty tundra separates the crash site from the nearest human being. The airplane's sole occupant is it's gritty, discontented pilot and, improbably, he's alive, coherent and hopelessly trapped. This novella is a provocative, true story and evokes the short works of Jack London , while offering the possibility that luck may have another name.
I am a free spirit and mother to anyone who needs one. I have a heart for teens and young adults. There are so many gray areas in your lives with less and less in this culture to hold on to. I hope my stories inspire you to know the LORD better by getting to know what he has promised. 'A rock, a safe haven' and so much more!
My background includes teaching English and volunteering as an English language teacher in Costa Rica. I was rescued by the LORD so many times as I traveled alone across the USA, Europe and down through Central America. What else? I have two great sons in their early thirties. My dog, Lexie is a rescue, two years old now and sits at my feet as I write these stories. She keeps me sane. I'm still trying to learn Spanish... That's about it! I hope you enjoy reading my Salt of Life Fiction Series as much as I enjoy writing them.

come to a screeching halt as they battle and pray their way through a confusing maze of fresh responsibility, romance, temptation, bodily harm, a house fire and a night in jail.
Tamara Passey, author of the The Christmas Tree Keeper: A Novel, was born and raised in Massachusetts around a large family, one that has served as inspiration for most of her writing. She was named Arizona Young Mother of the Year in 2013 and contributes marriage and family articles to FamilyShare.com. Mothering through the Whirlwind is her fist work of non-fiction.
She loves most creative endeavors and when she isn't writing or re-writing, you can find her baking or cross-stitching or walking--though not all at the same time. She lives with her husband and three children in Arizona.
Though Angela Donovan is out of work and needs money for rent, she yearns for her eight-year-old
daughter to have a carefree holiday. The last thing she wants is the pressure of her daughter expecting
a miracle. But when they pick out a Christmas tree at a cozy Massachusetts tree farm that’s exactly
what happens when they learn the trees might be miracle trees.
Mark Shafer is soon to be the new keeper of the Christmas trees when he inherits the family farm. He’d like
to run it with a family of his own, but his girlfriend wants nothing to do with farm life. He makes plans to sell
so he can propose to his girlfriend and pursue a career in music. Then he meets an unforgettable customer
and her daughter, and an anonymous gift compels them to learn the truth about the trees.
With a buyer willing to pay top dollar for the land, Mark has the fate of the trees in his hand.
Will he be able to see what and who is most important? And will Angela give the miracle of love a chance?
I am a U.S. Marine veteran (0311) and now a current member of the the US Army. I currently live in Texas with my wife, two kids and an assortment of animals. My hobbies and interests run the gambit from reading and writing to Judo and pretty much any thing active. I have been a river guide in West Virginia, participated in mountaineering courses in Wyoming and spent 30 days sea kayaking in Baja California, back when it was safe to do so.
Writers are always writing. It makes no difference if they are doing the dishes, driving to a soccer game or helping with surgery. In my view, Characters and relationships are what makes a story. Reading is a medium for intelligent people that want to do more than just be entertained. Silver Lead and Dead was my debut novel and the first in a three part series, which I hope to have done in the near future.
History's Prisoners: Invasion, was originally a novella which morphed into a short novel. I have two longer books planned for later 2017: Road to War, and Extinction. I hope you enjoy them and will leave feedback in one form or another. Constructive reviews and feedback can help an author develop a better story.

Melinda Means is a weary soul in need of refreshment from the only Source who can quench our thirst. After years of chronic pain and questioning God’s plan, she has finally found the joy of seeking the Healer more than the healing. It's a long journey that has led her to peace and hope.
About 15 years ago, I began leading weekly women’s Bible studies. I’m currently my church’s Women’s Director, as well as a Small Group Leader Coach. I lead studies, plan events and conferences and encourage women and ministry leaders to go deeper in their relationship with Jesus. I also lead a weekly chronic illness support group at my church called “Living Hope.”
For three-and-a-half years, I co-led an online blog and ministry called Mothering From Scratch. My children were simply providing too much humbling and hilarious material to let it go to waste. The blog gave birth to my book, co-authored with Kathy Helgemo, Mothering from Scratch: Finding the Best Parenting Style for Your Family. Although I still speak and minister to moms, God has led my ministry in a new direction. Visit Melinda's website, click here.
Melinda Means understands the isolation, questioning, grief and depression that accompanies hidden hurts.
For 20 years, she has walked a long, lonely, difficult road of chronic pain and illness — both hers and her son’s. In Invisible Wounds, she transparently shares her struggle with the tough spiritual questions and raw, dark emotions that often accompany suffering. Seven brave, beautiful women share their invisible wounds in these pages, too.Revealing their pain for this book often brought them to tears. Yet, each one gladly went to some very dark, vulnerable places. They believed God wanted to use their heartache to relieve someone else’s.
Here are some of the important questions Melinda wrestles with in this book:
How could a God who claims to love me allow me to suffer?
Does God really see me in my pain? How can I know?
Is it possible to embrace the reality I've been given? If so, how?
How can overwhelming difficulty lead me to hope?
S. M. "Rocky" Henriques is the author of several books on Amazon, including "12 Surprises of Heaven," and "The Stupefying Grace of God." He has pastored churches in Mississippi since 1979. He received a Master of Divinity degree and a Doctor of Ministry degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
Rocky has two adult children and two grandchildren, and lives in Mississippi with his beautiful wife Sharon, a rowdy parrot named Kermit, and two spoiled dogs named Gabi and Emmy.
It is my joy to wholeheartedly recommend "12 Surprises of Heaven." This book was thought provoking and spiritually inspiring. It caused me to see some aspects about heaven that I had never realized before. It also
gave me a greater appreciation for what our Lord has prepared for all who know Him. I am thankful for the
fact that Dr. Henriques continually set forth the one and only way to heaven—by faith and trust in the
Lord Jesus Christ. This book will bless and inspire all who read it, and I give it my full
and complete endorsement. --Evangelist Gary M. Bowlin.
