  • The Making of A Llama Family

    THE MAKING OF A LLAMA FAMILY chronicles a couple’s 26-year odyssey with their Llamas, first at their farm in North Carolina and later at their ranch in southwestern Virginia. The story begins in 1976, when the author and her husband met in Fairfax, Virginia, and it traces their adventures from Fairfax to Florida, to the Carolinas and back to their present-day farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The journey relates incidents from the early years of the couple’s marriage, and then evolves into the long partnership with their Llama herd, starting in 1990. The author recounts the tale of moving to their current Virginia property in 1996 and creating a Llama ranch from a blank canvas.

    The couple lived for several weeks in their van while their barn was being built and then, while their house was being constructed, they lived with their Llamas in the barn. Key to the story is how the couple interacted with the Llamas while sharing the barn with them, and how both humans and animals remain today as one family unit. The author details her years of observing Llamas as a family, and provides essential information for their care and happiness.

  • The Most Feared Man In America

    This biography of J. Edgar Hoover differs from all previous books on the subject. My book posits and documents the existence of two political myths about Hoover. One is a God myth, which was created intentionally by a long-standing FBI public relations campaign. The other myth is a Devil myth that emerged in reaction to the God myth. Both of these mythic perceptions are unidimensional stereotypical depictions of the man, which obscure the reality of the former FBI director. The author uses declassified FBI memoranda to shed light on the personality and professional performance of Mr. Hoover through examination of his marginalia. Hoover’s handwritten comments in the margins of FBI memos are candid and fascinating manifestations of his true self.

  • The Sea of Feed

    Combat has given me the misfortune of seeing young men…in the prime of their lives DIE, at such YOUNG ages. The turmoil that stirs within my SOUL makes me grieve for those INNOCENT lives…that were NEVER given a chance to ever BEGIN…just END…senseless LOST POTENTIAL.
    A belief system is a congregation of vocabulary conceived by those in search of meaning…because the truest and hardest actions…trials and tribulations…and especially TRUE EMOTION, what we feel deepest and hardest at our inner core can’t truly EVER be described…they can only be truly experienced, savored and translated by electrical activity experienced by the person and their individual SOUL.
    I’m always in awe of the potential view of life. People LIVE,…people DIE. Doesn’t mean that I have to like it because those acts of life that may happen…and those acts of life that may not happen…prepare you for the Hyannis atrocities mankind commits against his OWN kind…for CONTROL…in what I’ve come to know as COMBAT.
    COMBAT is designed to annihilate and destroy everything that it comes into contact with. The strong have to be prepared not to be broken down and they have to be mentally and physically prepared for all the catastrophic changes they’re about to ENDURE. If you’re not mentally and physically prepared for COMBAT…it will MENATLLY and PHYSICALLY CONSUME your SOUL,…and everything you’ll either EVER or NEVER become!!!

  • THE WORLD STILL LIVING

    About the book
    THE WORLD STILL LIVING Is my third venture in English literature, My mother language is Bengali and I have no
    proficiency in English language yet I have composed my verses in English to spread out my ideas around the world
    for those who believe in human progress.
    I am grateful to our National dailies and magazines for their news and information on the basis of which I have
    composed some of my verses.
    I believe any language can be benefited by other languages by taking and giving process in style, technique and idea.
    Language moves like the course of the river quite independently to flourish itself from internal and external resources.
    When we deal with our national matters we cannot ignore international affairs which are interlinked with our
    interests. So the need for learning international language comes.
    However, in composing the verses I have tried to follow the style of old Bengali poems in order to introduce a new
    flavour in English poetrical system.
    I remember with gratitude a few personalities like Dr. Sheikh Maqsood Ali, Poet Abdus Sattar, Poet Mozaffar
    Hossain, Poet Kazi Salahuddin, Poet Nurul Huqe, writer Nilufar Begum and members of the Authors Association
    (Bangladesh Lekhak Samiti) of Bangladesh who encouraged me in my literary persuits.
    I am also grateful to Mr. S.M. Al-Hossainy and Mr. Salahuddin Ahmed, the Hony, Chairman and the Hony, Secretary
    General of Swanirvar Bangladesh who were kind enough to give me a chance to serve their organisation meant for
    the backward people of Bangladesh.
    I am grateful to Mr. Sufi Md. Seraj-ul-Islam who has undertaken the task of printing this volume. The sale proceeds
    of this book shall be spent for better studies of the children of the Dream Land Preparatory School which he founded
    in 1984,
    Earlier Mr. Seraj-ul Islam published my book ‘The Verses on Islam’, I believe ‘The Verses on Islam’ will succeed in
    achieving its objective.
    I am thankful to Mr. Antique Huge Choudhury, a famous dramatist and T. V. personality of Bangladesh, Mr. Kazi
    Zahurul Huge and Mr. Atahar Khan two Journalists of repute who tried to expose me in my initial stage.
    Lastly, I express my thanks to Poet maul Haque, Mr. Forhad khan, Mr. Abdul Mannan Bakery, Mr. Abdul Awaal,
    Babul, Mr. S. Shahidullah, Mr. Shamsul Alam, Mr. Abdul Hye, writer Mr. Ahmed Kafil and many others for their
