A story that spans three continents and 40 years—in one day.
British pilot Anson Roe will ignore borders and strain relationships to achieve a career in Ag-aviation. But when he dreams of crashing his airplane in a remote corner of the world, all he can think of is the whereabouts of his girlfriend, Vivianne. He awakens at a small airstrip in “No Man's Land” Oklahoma, a year backward in time, suffering from apparent heatstroke and random amnesia. Brought to his knees, he is rescued by World War II Spitfire pilot and poet, John Gillespie Magee, Jr., author of the famous sonnet, “High Flight.” Pilot Officer Magee treats Anson to the force of his intellect and to harrowing tales of his barnstorming feats. In a story that interweaves true events with fantasy, the two pilots explore their parallel lives and loves.
This story spans two continents and two millennia.
The Logos of Soul, A Novel on the Light and Sound, is a provocative view of the secret teachings Jesus reserved for a select circle of his initiates, of the master-student relationship with the formidable Mary Magdalene, and of the men, Peter and Paul, who altered the teachings for all time. The author weaves a compelling story that reveals the common thread running through the mystic paths of the early Christians, Gnostics, Jews, and Hellenistic Greeks, and their relevance for today's spiritual seekers.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve held a fascination for the origin of the human spirit. Perhaps it all started with my father, an accountant whose clients included governors and reservations. Traveling required for the job, he documented the landscape along the isolated highways in Ektachrome slideshows. Summers and weekends he’d load up our family in the station wagon or van to visit Puebloan and Spanish mission ruins.
