Everyone thought it was just a hijacking. They were wrong. It was a skyheist!
In aviation's golden age of the 1960’s, a late arriving passenger boards a TWA 727 minutes before departure. However, this passenger is not what he seems. As the plane is taxiing out for takeoff, the new arrival brandishes a gun. Everyone present is now part of a hijacking.
Working with the authorities, the flight crew is successful in safely evacuating the passengers. However, the hijacker is equally successful in forcing the plane into the sky. Destination: Cuba.
In the middle of the night, hours after takeoff, an explosion rocks the plane, forcing the crew to make an emergency landing short of the hijacker’s intended destination. As smoke begins to fill the cockpit, the flight engineer heads back to the cabin to investigate. There he finds the hijacker has mysteriously disappeared. Even more curious, he has left his $100,000 ransom behind. It isn’t until the treasury department becomes involved that the crew learns that what at first seemed a normal hijacking, was in reality a heist worth $11 million dollars.
Skyheist is a thrilling adventure full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very last page, taking you on a journey through an age of air travel long past, but not forgotten!

Five Hundred Feet Above Alaska is the story of Peter Connors, a young man who moves to Alaska in pursuit of his dream of becoming a commercial pilot. While the pilots in Alaska are known for their superior airmanship, they are also famous for their disregard of the rules that govern them. Determined to ultimately be an airline pilot in “the lower forty-eight,” Peter vows to walk the straight and narrow. Yet, when Peter is the only pilot available to rescue a comrade who crashed in the snow-covered tundra, he is forced to compromise the very ethics that define him.
Over time, Peter’s competence begins to overpower his regard for the rules. Slowly, almost imperceptibly, Peter begins a downward spiral. The life Peter had carefully constructed for himself is at odds with the “live or die” flying of Alaska. Over the course of a year of doing battle with the elements on a daily basis, armed only with his plane, his wits and his skill to bring him home every night, Peter must decide whether it is more important to embrace life or cheat death.
The twenty-first century is a time of great contradiction. More than ever before, magic is prevalent in our society. Everything from underaged wizards attending school, to deadly battles to see who will rule mythical kingdoms are everywhere in entertainment today.
At the same time, technology has advanced at a rate that our forbearers never would have thought possible. We have split the atom, gone to the moon and put all of the world's information in our pockets.
How could such contradictions ever co-exist? How could we keep our belief in Santa Claus?
Claus, the Untold Story of Kris Kringle tells the exciting, and unknown story of the man who embodies the Christmas spirit. In the pages of this book you will follow Kris's life as an infant, born to a royal family just as they were deposed, to his life as a young man venturing out into a larger world than he ever imagined. A world ruled by the sadistic governor who killed his family. A world where toys are illegal and where only Kris can bring joy to the children. All of this, set in a world overshadowed by a mysterious warlock who threatens death to any and all who trespass in the shadow of his mountain.
In this book you will learn how Kris managed to navigate all of these obstacles and emerge, changing the world in which we all live.
