About the Author
Father, husband, writer, musician, adventurer, explorer, inventor, and faithful friend. I value God, country, family, friendship, loyalty, honesty, and integrity. Son of a sailor, raised in Maine, and schooled in Florida, at one time or another, I have called Bar Harbor, Presque Isle, St. Pete, Miami, New York City, Easton, Connecticut, Culver Indiana and Pacific Palisades, California, my home. My beautiful wife, Merryl, and I have been together since 1984, and we raised two extraordinary children who now live in New York and Miami.
An avid history buff who believes in research, and more research, I tend to look for hidden agendas that can be linked by common threads. So, it is only natural that my stories revolve around ancient mysteries, alternative histories, personal destiny, and shadowy figures that pull the strings of what goes on in the world.
Weaving together known truths, ancient myths, arcane facts, and legends, I try to craft tales of suspense and intrigue that can only be unraveled through the lens of unconventional insight. Remember, just because someone labels something a conspiracy theory, doesn’t mean it’s not true…
About the book
No boat could have survived the storm that left Mark Lambert missing and presumed dead. Landing on an uninhabited island, far from any shipping lanes, and far from hope, solitude strips away all the things he once thought important.
After a powerful hurricane strikes the island, he is surprised to discover an ancient grotto with high waterfalls cascading into a crystal blue lake. And swimming in the middle of the hollow is a beautiful young woman...
Is she real or simply a figment of his imagination? After being alone for over five years, he does not care. Each day he returns to the grotto and each day she is there. Never revealing who she is or where she goes, she becomes his teacher, philosopher, and spiritual guide.
By dismantling what was once a secular worldview and polishing it into a lens as seen through the eyes of God, her insights about life, death, and the world we live in, move Mark along a path of transformation. Until one day, she announces that her work is done and that he is ready to fulfill his destiny.
The timing of her exit coincides with the arrival of familiar adventurers who believe the island holds an enormous cache of buried treasure. Rescued, ready to face the next chapter in his life, Mark fights to hold on to the lessons learned. When recalling past conversations with his enigmatic companion, clues she left him lead to the greatest discovery in modern history and along the way, makes him one of the richest men in the world.
But how will he handle this great power? He must decide if he will revert to his secular worldview or use the gifts God has given him to make the world a better place.
The journey Mark pursues reveals that on the road of destiny, there are no ordinary lives.
