Ace Pilot

Eddie Rickenbacker

And the Dawn of

the Age of Speed


John F. Ross

Encore from 5/12/14

john f_ross


From a hardscrabble gang member in Columbus, Ohio to winning international Racecar driver to America's acclaimed "Ace of Aces" World War One Pilot to bankrupt entrepreneur to millionaire Eastern Airlines owner, Eddie Rickenbacker did it all. He was the personification of an "Iron Will" and proved it time and again, surviving numerous brushes with death including two airline crashes and more than 3 weeks adrift in the Pacific. In this deeply researched biography, Author John F. Ross draws from Rickenbacker's own diaries and paints the picture of a man driven by the deliberate need to embrace the "soul" of the machine...not only to survive, but to thrive.

A Novel




Lorna Landvik

lorna landvik


Encouraged by her supportive Grandmother who always said she was a talented comedienne, college grad Candy Pekkala shrugs off her post-college depression and heads for Hollywood. It's 1978, and Candy is subletting her cousin's apartment at quirky Peyton Hall. It's home to a host of real characters, including a female body builder and a Romanian Psychic with celebrity clients. As Candy temps at only-in-Hollywood jobs, even winning a game show, she comes to know and love some of her Peyton Hall neighbors and scores an occasional stand-up gig. It’s a wacky road she's on until she gets the call she's been waiting for and understands its "best to laugh."

How To Use The Mind's

Power Of Anticipation To

Jennice Vilhauer, PhD

Developer of

Future Directed Therapy

jennice vilhauer


When you find yourself thinking about the things you don't want, it generates negative emotions like fear and anxiety. But in giving your attention to something unwanted that hasn't happened, you're robbing yourself of present-moment happiness. Instead, this book provides an "instruction manual" to help you "Think Forward To Thrive". With willingness to change and a commitment to stay the course, you can learn to redirect your attention to things you do want. "Future Directed Therapy", developed over several years, can guide you in developing the skills you need to start creating the life you want -- one Chapter per week, 20 minutes a day.
