Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How IT Happened is a science-based odyssey from the beginning of the Universe through fourteen billion years of its history. With side-trips into the sciences behind, and scientific proofs of the relevant underlying theories, the reader is led through the formation of stars, galaxies, and planets; one of the multi-quintillions of which is our Earth. It then moves through the major steps in Earth's maturation that formed oceans, landmasses, an atmosphere, and all of the ingredients needed to initiate the phenomenon of life. Next, it highlights the intimate connection between human beings and the Cosmos, wherein elements formed within ancient stars become the constituent atoms of the first life form. Following is the evolution of that first live being into the subsequent plant and animal species that culminates in speaking, writing, worshiping, clothed, civilized beings. The journey finally concludes with a prognosis for the distant future of the Earth, its occupants, and the Universe itself.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Perhaps once in a lifetime we meet someone who has the ability to inspire us in one brief meeting, who can confront not one but two life-threatening illnesses with remarkable courage – and instil hope in others in the face of the greatest adversity. Jennifer Roberts was one of those people. Accomplished in defying the odds, she lived with a kidney transplant for 29 years and terminal lung cancer for more than 12 months. A larger than life character, she faced health challenges and fear with good humour and the warmest of smiles. As one of the UK’s leading dementia specialists, she worked to help transform the way we care for those with the condition, setting new benchmarks for supporting people living with dementia in their own homes. Regularly taking on professional and personal challenges that she was told were beyond her, Jennifer championed transplant donor campaigns and genuinely made every moment of her 51 years count. In the last year of her life, Jennifer achieved new highs in her career and quietly, without fuss, found time to help many others diagnosed with and receiving treatment for cancer. Written by her husband Paul, Jennifer’s uplifting never-say-die story tells of her bravery and immense determination to succeed, and how she found true love and happiness in her life. She and Paul shared a remarkable love story; they met in extraordinary circumstances, married in a Scottish castle and exchanged more than 1,000 love letters and cards in their near 13 years together. Make It Happen is a touching, bittersweet but ultimately uplifting read. It will be enjoyed by fans of biographies and those seeking an inspirational, true story. Proceeds from the book will go towards helping people living with cancer and kidney disease.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Elizabeth Johnsons life has been like a constant roller coaster ride since the time she was born. Being born with a special gift to pick up people emotions was a blessing and a curse to her. A blessing because she was able to help so many people make it through some hard times. A curse because she found herself in the middle of so much drama. Born to an alcoholic mother and not knowing her father she felt like she never knew who she really was. Journalizing was always therapeutic for her because it allowed her to release her deepest thoughts when words from her mouth were lost. Elizabeth lost her memory because of a bad storm but she never lost her love for God. Her parents were killed in a bad car accident. She found herself alone with no parents to lean on except her grandmother, who also eventually passed away. With her lack of understanding and desire to be loved, she found herself part of the statistics, a pregnant teen mom. She lost her baby because of medical issues and found herself deeply depressed and bitter. Her best friend Emily just left and no one had any information as to what happened to her. She felt like God didnt love her because he kept taking the people she loved away. Going through life Elizabeth felt alone, lonely and lost. She did not know who she was, where she came from or why she even existed. The people she allowed in her life loved her but also dreaded her because she was always opinionated. As she goes on this journey called life, she finds her true purpose. She also realizes God never left her. He was just building her up for something special.
