MORE INFO ABOUT MY BOOKS
My novel, The MoonQuest: A True Fantasy, has won five awards, most recently a New Mexico Book Award and a Gold Medal from the Independent Publishers Book Awards, and has been praised by critics as “an exceptional, timeless novel” and a “must-read.” Readers have praised it as “mesmerizing,” “lyrical” and “spell-binding.”
It’s a fantasy set in a mythical time and place where stories have been banned, storytellers put to death and the moon, saddened by the silence in the land, has shed tears that have extinguished her light. My screenplay adaptation of the book is now in active development with Anvil Springs Entertainment for feature production. I’m also working on the first of two projected sequels.
My second book is The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write, is designed for writers in all genres and levels of experience — a blend of inspiration, exercises and instruction to get you writing and keep you writing, even if you’ve never written a word and don’t believe you are creative. Critics, writing coaches, published authors and aspiring writers have all acclaimed it, calling it a “phenomenal guide to overcoming writer’s block and unleashing your creative potential” and ” one of the most lyrical, spiritual and beautiful books about writing I’ve ever read.”
Synopsis: THE MOONQUEST is a “true fantasy” set in a land where fear rules and storytelling spells death. Here, as black-clad armies terrorize the countryside, one young bard must come out of hiding to embark on The MoonQuest, the long-prophesied journey to end the tyranny…a journey guided only by stories…a journey that blurs the line between vision and reality. Only by trusting himself can he rekindle the spirit of the land. Only by trusting his imagination can he reignite the light of its darkened moon. A gripping and epic adventure rich with universal truth.
What Critics Say:

“I couldn’t put it down. I finished the whole book in one sitting!” ~ Suzie Feldner, Waukesha, Wisconsin
“Empowering, enchanting, breathtaking!”~ Kathleen Messmer, San Francisco, California
Relevance: The MoonQuest‘s story, apart from being a good read, is also a powerful metaphor for freedom of expression and freed up creativity…an encouragement for all to awaken to and share the stories that lie within them.

Then in the back two hours Geoff (Doc) Bean a 41 yr old Sgt at Arms for the SACRAMANIACS motorcycle club out of Sacramento will join us for a discussion about the suppressed Ukrainian ‘Flu’ pandemic and preparations for the spread of that pandemic worldwide.
“Doc” was rudely awakened by the Dept of Homeland Security when they rounded up his club for their terror database in April 2007, and even snatched up their wives……
During the following 13 days they held us all they told me and our club president that very soon there wouldn’t be any protections for people they brought in and that they would be dealt with… So we decided that folks needed to know the truth behind the government agenda and we started the SACRAMANIACSmc channel to get out the truth… I’m currently a father and husband, and psychology major at American River College and a drug and alcohol counselor certification program…
I’ve been a guest on Alex Jones and Warrior Society Radio as well as a guest on Freedomfighter Radio… Spent the last 20 years studying the mystery religion symbolism and end time theology and the connection to the new age movement and the United Nations…
