My Adventure to Every Country on Earth


Albert Podell

albert podell


It may have taken him a half century to do it, but adventurous outdoorsman, former "Playboy" Editor and Attorney Albert Podell is the only person to venture to every country on the planet...including 7 that are no longer in existence. Podell, as co-leader of the Trans World Record Expedition, set the record for the longest journey by automobile in 1965 and co-wrote a best-selling book about it. After crossing 26 countries by Toyota Land Cruiser, he decided to keep train, plane, canoe, on foot and any other way he could to officially visit every nation, finishing his quest with a trip to Angola in 2012. His book is no ordinary travel vividly recounts his surviving riots, revolutions, a near-lynching, horrid weather conditions and meeting the best...and some of the worst the world. It's a frank and sometimes funny, fascinating trip!

A Novel




James Anderson

38-year old Indie Trucker Ben Jones is the lifeline to a cast of quirky characters that inhabit the isolated, eerily run-down place known as Desert Home. It sits alongside Highway 117 in the desolate but beautiful northeastern Utah desert. Ben's delivery business is in jeopardy but he loves life on the open road and comes to love Claire, a mysterious woman he discovers living in a run-down model home. Their affair reignites the devastating memory of a terrible night that occurred 40 years ago at the beautifully kept but Never-Open Desert Diner. Why won't Claire's father, Walt, open for business? Ben discovers why and shockingly learns how the pain that crime created can reverberate across generations.

Women and

Romantic Obsession


Lisa A. Phillips

Neuroscientists and Psychologists say it's common for both men and women to experience unrequited love. But knowing that it’s a universal phenomenon doesn't lessen the heartache when the object of your desire won't reciprocate. Society judges women in unrequited love more harshly than men...1 out of 10 stalkers is female. Sixteen years ago, Author and Journalism Professor Lisa Phillips "crossed the line" in passionate pursuit of a man she literally craved to be with. Now happily married with a daughter, she decided to explore the fierce dynamic that compelled her. She offers the latest research and the stories of 30 other women who like herself, experienced unrequited love. They learned that passionately pursuing someone is a psychological affliction that's all about You. It can become an addiction but it can also be a life-changing experience that's good for you, too. You just have to know when to put on the brakes.
