Author Daniel P. Douglas' New Sci Fi Release, 'Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project', Centered On UFO Disclosure
Sci fi author Daniel P. Douglas has announced the release of 'Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project'. The newly released science fiction book blends the authenticity of a Tom Clancy novel with the mystery and suspense of 'The X Files'. It is especially pertinent today, as even high-level government officials such as John Podesta are calling for disclosure and truth regarding UFOs after decades of government cover-ups.
Douglas is a multi-genre author who turns ordinary people into extraordinary heroes. Douglas creates the most unlikely of heroes and calls upon them to join extraordinary and mysterious struggles. His characters' sometimes-reluctant choices and actions put them on a collision course with destiny and reveal unimaginable truths. In every pulse pounding, edge-of-your-seat adventure, survival means confronting personal flaws and doubts, and forging unexpected fates as inspiring new champions in the eternal battle against evil.
According to Daniel, years of watching or reading anything and everything about UFOs led him to write 'Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project'. His core motivation, however, was anger, and finding an outlet for it.
“Like many who follow the subject,” says Daniel, “I’m routinely frustrated by the response of government to UFOs, especially in not admitting what they know, and I’m not just talking about well-known cases like Roswell. There are thousands of UFO cases to talk about, past and present.”
Daniel adds that he was not surprised when outgoing advisor to President Obama, John Podesta, recently tweeted his regret that he could not get the government to release its UFO files.
“The stonewalling is policy and has been for decades. It is frustrating and damages the public trust. And if a former Chief of Staff and Presidential advisor can’t succeed in gaining disclosure, I have to wonder where it leaves individual citizens who seek the truth. I also wonder why more people aren’t outraged and vocal about this failure of government accountability.”
In the storyline of the new science fiction thriller, when former FBI agent William Harrison begins receiving mysterious postcards with the signature "Echo Tango," he's alerted to a deadly government cover-up beyond anything he ever thought possible. His informant turns out to be a guilt-ridden ex-operative in the Saint Mary Project, an ultra-secret program engaged in alien contact. The organization is wiping out loose ends, and Echo Tango thinks Harrison is the man he needs to stop the decades-old conspiracy.
Thanks to a gunshot wound suffered in an attempt to thwart an armed robbery, the crime-fighting life is something of Harrison's past. He keeps his shooting skills sharp but walks with a limp, and he is more likely to catch marital cheaters than anything else--as a private investigator. But Harrison can't shake the feeling that this paranormal case is meant for him. He enlists the help of colleagues and starts following the mysterious clues.
“In this science fiction novel," Douglas concluded, "I tried to build it on a range of UFO lore and keep it true to that lore so followers of the subject would see their interests, knowledge, and beliefs reflected – and respected – in the book.”
Critics have praised 'Truth Insurrected'. Kirkus Reviews stated, "…its sprinkling of fantastical elements makes it a standout..." Blue Ink Review said, "...Conspiracy theorists and science fiction fans alike will find Truth Insurrected hard to put down." BestThrillers.com called it "An engrossing, deftly-crafted UFO conspiracy thriller that is easily one of the most successful tales to emerge out of Roswell alien lore." The Columbia Review of Books & Film said, "An excellent science-fiction/conspiracy thriller...Highly recommended."

Artist With Cerebral Palsy Who Paints Remarkable Acrylic Masterpieces To Be Featured At Tobii Dynavox
Joshua Englehaupt is an artist whose medium is acrylics. While his work may defy description, the talent he brings to the canvas is undeniable. What is even more remarkable is the fact that his work is produced by a team effort. He is half the team at OurHome Studio. His mother, author Carol Englehaupt, is the other half of the team. Carol assists Josh by holding up his arm when he paints. Joshua provides inspiration for his mother's work as an author. It is a match 'made in Heaven' for both Carol and Joshua.
"Josh isn’t an independent painter," Carol stated. "He needs my help in getting his painting ready. I load and clean brushes for him. I place the brush in his hand and support his elbow. The brush strokes are his. The composition and colors are his. He has a far better sense of color than I do. We use a big color chart to help him decide on colors and to communicate to me what he wants."
"I was taking a watercolor art course, when Josh let me know that he wanted to paint too. Without thinking, I gave him paper and paints and let him finger paint. This lasted about three pictures. Josh got angry. He kicked his foot and kept looking at the paintbrush in my hand. He wanted to paint with a brush. I did what I always do when Josh wants to do something. I figured out a way for him to do it. His grip was poor. I’d have to curl his fingers around the brush and help him hang onto it. This wasn’t what Josh wanted so I started to think of ways to help him. I mentioned to my husband one evening, 'If only paintbrushes came with handles like screwdrivers.' He gave me a look, got up from his chair and disappeared into the garage. He came back with a couple of screwdriver handles with brushes inserted. These were the first brushes that Josh used. The handles were big enough that he could get a grip on them."
Joshua Englehaupt was born April 3, 1980. Birth trauma resulted in Joshua being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. He attended Easter Seal until the age of seven at which time testing became available that gave a more accurate assessment of his I.Q. His diagnosis was updated to multi-physically disabled with normal intelligence. As a result of this testing, Josh was able to leave Easter Seals and attend public schools. The travel was simply too much for Joshua to handle. Home schooling became the only reasonable choice.
The other half of the team, Carol Englehaupt, is both an artist and a published author. She learned early that normal doesn’t exist. Her stories reflect an unconventional outlook on life that fires the imagination, inspires the reader, and delivers a dose of unexpected humor. A multi genre author who writes under the pen name C.L. Roth, she delivers fast-paced, imaginative stories with enough unusual twists to please readers of any age.
Carol's works include 'Cosmic Shift', 'Cosmic Chaos' and 'Bone Weary'. 'Cosmic Shift' is a fantasy for kids geared to Middle School readers but also enjoyable for all ages. 'Cosmic Chaos' is written for middle grade kids and young adults. Carol's latest work, 'Bone Weary', is an adult mystery full of heart and humor that features a caregiver protagonist, drawing on her own experiences with Joshua.
"My goal as an author," Carol stated, "is to tell a story that intrigues the mind, entertains the reader, and takes root in the heart. I strive to write fast-paced books that deliver action, humor, and unexpected twists that are suitable for all ages to read."
Joshua's work has been drawing a great deal of public attention and several of Joshua's prints will be displayed at Tobii Dynavox in Pittsburgh, PA.
"Josh and I are just beginning this artistic journey," Carol concluded. "I have no idea where the path will lead. I only know we are enjoying every step of the journey."
Carol Englehaupt is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at email@example.com More information on Joshua's work is available at http://www.ourhomestudio.com. More information on Carol's work is available at http://www.clroth.com.
OurHome Studio is a collaboration of two artists. Joshua Englehaupt is an artist with Cerebral Palsy who paints in watercolor. His mother, Carol Englehaupt is a multigenre author who writes under the name of C. L. Roth.

Meditation And Light On The Path To Mediumship Is The Focus Of Author Pat Chalfant's Book, 'Spirit Lights A Path To Mediumship'
Pat Chalfant, author of 'Spirit Lights A Path To Mediumship', believes meditation is the path to mediumship. She hopes to reveal the true face of mediumship and feels that nothing does that more effectively than pointing out the routine use of meditation in mediumship studies. The experience of seeing light during meditation is one of the hallmarks of progress.
"Usually, one of the first things we develop when we study mediumship," Chalfant stated, "is the ability to see lights in meditation either with eyes open or with eyes closed. More often it will happen for the meditator when his eyes are closed. Having it happen with eyes open is less common. Whenever anyone tells me he/she see lights in my darkened development class, I am fairly certain that this person is on the way to developing mediumship."
"Students will also announce in our 'sharing time' after meditation that they have seen colors. Actually, the two are usually interchangeable because the lights can be various colors. So that I won’t discourage anyone who may not 'see' anything at first in meditation, I always temper the mention of lights and colors appearing early on by saying that it doesn’t have to be light that is seen first, but that quite frequently, it is. Those lights may be tiny, large, stationary, moving, or what one student described as a guiding light. They will be white or many-colored or only one color, but nevertheless, light(s). Recently, she’s been adding that this may even be what engendered the concept of “light workers.” Light definitely precedes or else comes along at some later stage in our progression through meditation into mediumship."
"Those who know about the work of the Seer of Virginia Beach, Edgar Cayce, may know that his son, Hugh Lynn Cayce, stated that meditation is valuable because the light we begin to see in meditation is the same light that we are so often encouraged to remember to look for when we die. So if you are a meditator, not only will the light you see in meditation tell you that you are taking your first steps toward becoming a medium, but also that the path you will then be on is the same as the one that we each use to pass to the Other Side of Life. This is how we begin to discover that life continues after death and that we are Spiritual beings."
Special attention is given to meditation at the end of each lesson in Pat’s book as well as in a long piece about meditation at the beginning of the workbook section at the back of her book.
'Spirit Lights A Path To Mediumship', explains how she, a real skeptic regarding such matters, developed mediumship abilities and now lives a life transformed by the spiritual. Mediumship is a controversial issue and Pat understands this, but she also believes that credible mediumship holds the promise of real benefits for mankind that have not been fully explored.
In addition to offering one-on-one client consultations, Pat has penned the 'Spirit Lights Song Book' and three of those songs are in the National Spiritualist Association of Churches hymn book. She does readings for clients by phone and teaches mediumship development classes. She has also created a DVD entitled 'Spirit Lights Psychic Development DVD'.
Pat Chalfant is currently appearing on The Authors Show. Her interview is available now at The Authors Show site. 'Spirit Lights A Path To Mediumship' is available at her website and at Amazon. Pat is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
