Wheelsgalore: True Stories of Courage and a Determination by Iain M. MacLeod
"Thursday, June 15, 2017, will be embedded in his memory forever. He woke on that summer day eager to face the world with his usual free-spirited independence but would end the day lying in an Intensive Care unit of a hospital in Aberdeen, Scotland, with a ventilating tube down his throat."
In his first book "10 Seconds That Changed My Life" the author describes the various stages of his hospital experience as well as his personal journey through joy, sorrow, frustration and elation, as well as the enormous reality of going home to a new normal.
By writing the book the author hopes that it helps to encourage those with special needs to never give up, to always remember that they are able, not disabled, and have unique abilities to share with the world.
There were many times he felt low and said to himself, “Why me?” but he can truthfully say, without a word of a lie, the one thing that kept him going was returning to his studies with the Open University. He proudly admits "I am an OU addict"!
10 Seconds That Changed My Life by Iain M. MacLeod is available as an eBook, Paperback, Hardcover and Audiobook

This vivid novel offers much entertainment and excitement throughout its telling of various adventures. Although the main character's motives are presented, only small portions of the story involve his attempted redemption, leaving room for resolution in a subsequent sequel. Creating a more obvious through line that better connects all of the characters and their actions will improve the overall narrative while the multitude of subplots offer the creative material necessary to build a compelling series.

Terrorism! Refugees Crises! Civil Wars! Political extremism, dysfunction, and corruption! What if the growing chaos around the world today is far more significant than we are being led to believe?
In this one of a kind in-depth analysis of current events JB Shreve explains that we are witnessing a turning point in the history of the world. We are witnessing the end of the world! This is not a doomsday prediction. It is a simple accounting of facts. By analyzing basic elements of our global system such as food, water, and population distribution, this book details how it is impossible for the world to continue on its current trajectory for another 50 years. We have already passed the threshold and the growing chaos we are experiencing today is the unfolding story of our world coming undone. Things are not going to get better. They are going to get much, much worse.
This is the story of a global system designed in contradiction to the ethics of God and destined for implosion by the very nature of the philosophical seeds it has been built upon. Even as we recognize the significance of the history that is unfolding today, Christians should also be wise and discerning in how to respond to this chaos.
This is the story of how the world ends. It will help you make sense of the environment we live in. For Believers, it will show you how to stand strong in the midst of the growing chaos.

There’s something wrong with the old rental house at 66 Bucknam Road. Cassie feels it right away. There’s the low shadow that races past behind her as she checks herself in the mirror.

The getaway was her husband’s idea: a three-month escape from the city, a quiet summer in a remote Long Island town with their two young children. And, she thinks, maybe a chance for confused and troubled Trevor to find meaning again in his life after a devastating layoff.

"Intriguing and emotional! This book was something different for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it! The style of writing is good, it keeps on moving and keeps on giving. It's descriptive, but not too flowery and the characters feel very real. Despite it's sense of hard realism, the novel explores mystery, fantasy, folklore and also has some good humour. Give it a try. I'd definitely read another book by the author." amazon.com

"Absolutely brilliant! I was hooked! Couldn't stop reading, 100% recommended to anyone who likes post-apocalyptic fiction." amazon.com
New World is based in a post-atomic war Britain and follows an adventurer exploring the new tribes formed after the government collapsed.
This story is inspired by post-apocalyptic fiction and gives an odd perspective on the premises of the genre.
Thunder strikes, Birds fall from the sky. Unimaginable horrors happen in the streets while the madmen laugh. The forests cry as they burn and God looks away in shame as his creation destroys itself. A hail of fire. Bodies lay naked with clothes melted into their skin, scattered across the streets while the great cities melt down into a flat surface as all traces of civilization are wiped from the earth. The screams of flames ripping off people's skin are muffled by the intense hurricane that engulfs them. An atomic blast. Nothing more, nothing less. That did the job, now the Earth is crisp. Nothing but ash, fire and rubble above the ground.
Pandora's Box had been opened but this time hope wasn't to be found. It was when I came to this realisation that I knew I was right, It was bound to come one day. I felt the end was near and it came. Now it's gone and I'm alone in a hollow shell wider the Earth. With months of food and water, I feel safe but that doesn't seem to matter now. There is nothing left to be safe for. I have no people to speak to, No more love, No more laughter, No more anything. No more life...

How are you?
This is the question that for most of us will remain unanswered by the simple utterance of "I'm fine".
This book is a testament to the inner lives that we all lead and how we are all colored in by so much more than what is socially acceptable or even helpful to talk about to most people. It is my most sincere hope that the experiences realized in this book resonate with the longing to more honestly answer this question and help to soothe those who are in need of love, compassion, or commiseration.
Although the content of this book is set to follow the Mire family, a fictional family trying to confront this very issue, it is my hope that the author's own personal experiences -- the one's that engender these themes will serve to satisfy the reader and clearly illustrate the importance of why we all need people to talk to -- people who will listen and understand.
This book is meant to say and share the things I always wanted to say when, wearing the weight of my smile, I said, "I'm fine".
