Holiday Prices & New Interview

Some good news!

I have slashed prices on the digital Empire of the Wheel trilogy through the holidays. You can get EOW1 for $4.99 and now EOW2 is 99 CENTS and EOW3 is 99 CENTS. That means you can buy the trilogy for a mere $7 on Kindle at Amazon.  And don't forget -- Amazon GIVES the Kindle app away for FREE.

And that's not all: My recent release 'Secret Missions' about Juan Cabrillo, the Knights Templar and a lost relic is now ONLY $1.99.

BUT get them now before the price goes back up on Jan 1st

Just go to my author's page at Amazon via this link

This Saturday, 22 November, I'll be recording an interview with GeorgeAnn Hughes for The Byte Show. As usual, as soon as she posts it, I'll make an announcement or you can keep an eye on her website.

McStay Murders Suspect Arrested. Solved?

Authorities arrested Chase Merritt, former business partner of Joseph McStay, for the murders of McStay and his wife and children. The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department seems satisfied they have their man. I will post my analysis of this development once I've studied all available data on the Merritt option.

I would remind EOW3 readers that it does not matter who ordered the murders or why -- the key factor in the EOW link is the burial site: smack dab on telluric current ("ley line").

It may also interest readers to know that SB County Sheriff John McMahon had stated that the case data and the murder site indicated an orchestrated effort by multuiple perpetrators. Now he claims it was a lot more simple and carried out by the 57 year old business partner, Merritt, all on his own. Sheriff McMahon also stated that the murders of the McStays and their small children happened in the Fallbrook home and apparently the bodies were carried to the Apple Valley burial site. Blunt-force trauma was the cause of death, according to the authorities. We must keep in mind that even though not even a hint was given that the murders happened in the home during four years of reporting on this case, such evidence that might indicate the murders did happen in the home could very well have been suppressed by investigators, as is often done.

Does this eliminate the McStay case from the EOW milieu? Absolutely not. The bodies were indeed found on a telluric current site. What that means remains under analysis. The fact is, that site was selected for some reason.

I'm not saying Merritt didn't have a hand in the murders. He may very well have. But under the circumstances, it smells like Lone Gunman theory to me...

More to be sure...

The New Book Is Now Available!

The result of data collected since 2007 plus further historical research and field investigation, my new book is the sixth product of the greater Empire of the Wheel milieu. It is a departure from the EOW case investigation yet just as full of mystery and implication. I think you'll like it.

EOW Killings: The McStay Family

For those who have read EOW3:The Nameless Ones, you will know that I classify the murders of the McStay Family, Joseph, his wife Summer and their two little boys, as an EOW related crime. Chapter 26 of EOW3 presents the facts accompanied by my explanation and speculation. I check in for the latest in the media for any possible updates or progress on the case, looking for more revealed clues as to why this family found themselves in the sights of EOW killers. As you can see by this recent report, nothing of note has been released by the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department investigators. This doesn't mean they have no new leads, it merely means they're protecting the integrity of the investigation. The detectives may very well have something that would be of interest here but who knows how they are interpreting it. As a former federal agent and currently a PI, I can tell you they are certainly working the case and my guess is that they indeed have some revealing leads or they are beginning to face some things that serve to introduce them to the Empire of the Wheel. But that is my speculation.

What are your thoughts?

The Update

Hey all,

Well I just finished the first of three parts that make up the new book! I think it's a doozy, too. Good stuff from an historical and esoteric perspective. Mostly historical.

Secret Missions is turning out to be one of the most fun books I've written so far, for me as a writer. I'm confident you, the readers, will enjoy it as well. The overall theme and thesis are taking me back to an era I was interested in years ago and haven't been so immersed in since high school. I never imagined I would revisit the Spanish conquest in such an unexpected and fascinating manner. The first part has set up the foundation for the second rather well, I think. Because it is the second part that actually inspired me to write this book, I am very excited to be at this point in the writing. Not that the first part didn't blow my mind, as it will yours. I can now get into the data collected during the seven years of EOW research that was pointing to the premise of this new book and share it with you.

When you read Secret Missions, you'll be learning about things I stumbled upon back in 2007 and about suspicions that have only grown stronger as the evidence piled up. It may be my wildest theory yet. When I look back and realize how long I've been aware of the scenario presented in this book, I can't believe I resisted revealing it for as long as I did. Indeed, I never planned to write a book on it. However, I think it's time. Secret Missions does connect to certain aspects of the EOW milieu. I won't exactly call it closure on the material, but it is, in essence, a closure of an era of my life. I found myself unexpectedly in a place I did not want to be and under less than desirable circumstances when after a series of strange events I found myself staring into a mystery I never would have discovered had I not been stuck in the Inland Empire. Essentially, I made lemonade.

Though I haven't identified anything as of yet, I will likely emerge from this book with more possibilities on the edge of things EOW. There is the other new book that I'm writing with a co-author (to be announced with the release of the cover art) and that book is also a by-product of the EOW trilogy in a more direct way than Secret Missions. In fact, I'd re-read EOW2, if you want to get the most out of it. Before then, though, will be Secret Missions, for which you can prepare by reading my Disneyland book, Latitude 33: Key to the Kingdom.

I still haven't made it down to San Diego yet. Finishing the first part was important. The research trip will be more focused now that I'm on the section to which it pertains. In fact, I'm very glad I held off because I want to be in the right frame of mind while I'm there. I'll likely put together a playlist of music for the drive and for while I'm there. I'll even select places to eat that will serve the theme, which will be fun. Hopefully I'll turn up some unexpectedly thrilling data, too. I won't know until I get down there and dig into archives and files. Whatever I find, I know I'll enjoy just being there, my birthplace and college alma mater.

Once I finish the third section, I'll likely start giving more hints about the book's contents. Until then these updates will be writer's meanderings. The update following San Diego should be an especially good one, so we'll both look forward to it. For now, I'm going to relax until it's time to fall asleep. Tomorrow I jump into Part Two.

Until next week...

To Be Named

I'm toying with the idea of a weekly little newsletter report of my doings but I'm not sure if there's enough to tell on a weekly basis. Perhaps I'll just do a monthly. Also, I'm toying with different letterheads under which to present these reports so hopefully soon I'll have something clever and fitting.

Essentially, I am a former federal agent, currently a licensed private investigator (in a state with a dead industry, where classic independent detectives are concerned -- and my biggest source of jobs suddenly died a few months back), a sometime writer of fiction and a small press publisher of a genre few care to read anymore. Fortunately, seven years ago I embarked on an investigation into some strange things and discovered a huge mystery about which I've written four books and a novel and am presently writing another book relative to the general milieu of it all. As a writer, I'm having success at finding an audience because all of you folks reading the books and telling others about them. I am on the periphery of circles of other interesting and better known researchers so along with my meanderings, you'll likely read mention of their latest works, too, as they relate to what I'm doing here in this 'Empire of the Wheel'.

Not all the books are 'Empire of the Wheel' books, per se. For instance, Latitude 33: Key to the Kingdom was written prior to my learning about 'Cora Stanton', though it is about the telluric currents which led me to her. The new book, Secret Missions: The Hidden Legacy of Old California, is not an Empire of the Wheel book but it is the result of things discovered while investigating that mystery. I have no idea yet what the following book will be, but you'll be the first to know when I announce it here. In the meantime, I'm enjoying writing the current new book and can't wait to get it out there.

If a new idea presents itself, I may start another book before this year is over. My ideas usually pop up from the woodwork. I had no idea I'd be writing this new book until a few weeks ago. In fact, it contains a theory that I had not originally intended to make public. However, my research convinced me -- and a few key associates -- that it's worthy of publication, so here I am writing it. I think you'll find it as exciting as I do.

Hopefully soon I'll be taking a research trip to San Diego. There are some archives I need to peruse and sites I need to stare at and analyze. I also need to see two of my best friends who happen to live there and share some cold liquid hops and tales of our recent adventures. On the weekend of Oct 18th I will definitely be down there for an Aztecs football game which several college friends and I have been doing for a few years now. We always have a tailgate BBQ before the game and catch up on the latest. It gives me the opportunity to wear one of my various Aztec hats and reflect on how far we've all come since SDSU. Even my choice of colleges reflects a fascination with ancient civilizations and lost America. You'll learn more about my lifelong link to San Diego and how it reflects upon the new book, in the weeks ahead.

In the meantime, I'm going to get back to working on the book. Thanks again to all who have shown an interest in what I'm doing here i.e. with the books. I've been told I'm onto something big and I agree. It has been a major influence on my life so I'll keep struggling along to get it on 'paper' and maybe we'll both see the whole story before too long.

More to follow!

New Book!

Here it is, folks!

The cover art for my new book, currently being written. I'm looking to have the draft finished in mid to late August and will hopefully be publishing it in September. This one is a by-product of the EOW material and a little Latitude 33:Key to the Kingdom. I'll be talking about what's in this one once the book is ready for release.

Have fun!

For Those Who Missed It...

A few weeks ago, I made a guest appearance on Radio Misterioso with Greg Bishop and, for the first time publicly anywhere, I revealed what happened when I attempted to find a record supporting my theory about Etta Place. The theory is that she was a field asset for the US Secret Service between 1899 and 1915 when I argue that she died in San Bernardino and was buried under the name 'Cora Stanton'. The results of my document search are rather curious.

On May 14th, 2013, I made a telephone call to the US Secret Service in Washington DC and spoke with an archivist there. I prefer not to provide his name here as he is a private citizen. I inquired how I could request any documentation on Etta Place, specifically mentioning that I was seeking to determine whether she was an asset or source or in any way affiliated with the Service. The archivist instructed me to send him an email with the details of my request. He also stated that he may not be able to disclose the information if it is there. I considered the implication of what he said and wondered why this would still be a secret after 98 years, as I followed up with the email requesting a search of the name Etta Place and a few others relative to my investigation.

On May 24th, 2013, I sent a follow up email just to check on the progress of the search. I received no reply to this email.

The following week, I traveled to Montana with Joseph Farrell to be interviewed for a television show. Still no reply after my return

On June 14, 2013, I sent another follow up query. I received an answer the same day in which the archivist reported that the search turned up negative -- and then he recommended a specific Secret Service file located at the National Archives and provided a link to them. Interesting that his search turned up nothing, yet he was referring me to an old file at the National Archives.

So I contacted the US National Archives and made an inquiry into the specific file. On July 1st, 2013, I received an email from an Archives Technician Level 2 identifying herself as the archivist assigned to my inquiry. In that email, she asked me if I had an associate pull the file for me because someone had pulled it that very day. I replied that I had no associate.

I next received a telephone call from this National Archives archivist who left a message with her phone number and I called her the next day. On July 2nd, 2013, this archivist informed me that she had been out of the office on leave for nine days and upon returning found my inquiry assigned to her. When she went to pull it, it was already pulled -- and was being searched by someone in the office that very day. The reason she thought I may have sent the person is that said person told her he was sent by someone in California, the state where I live. Federal law prevents her from identifying that person but she said it was very odd due to the obscurity and age of the file materials. She said it surprised her that anyone would be there on the very same day she was to pull it for me. This archivist also told me that the file wasn't very big and would only take a couple of hours or so to go through, though they are given ten days to fulfill the search query. She then informed me how to format my request for her to search the file for Etta Place, et al. I sent her an email with the names I needed searched, Etta Place at the top of the list.

Thirteen days later, on July 15th, 2013, I sent a follow up email to the archivist. Remember, they have ten days and I gave an extra three. I received no reply.

Seven days later, on July 22nd, 2013, I receive a short email from the archivist. She says she has been out of the office due to an "acute illness" and will continue to work my inquiry.

On August 1st, 2013, I sent a follow up, asking if she was finding anything. The next day, August 2nd, she says she might have found a couple of names relative to my list, but one is too far off and neither are Etta Place (This small lead is still being followed up, at this time). She sent another short email on the same day saying she is going to check another entry.

On August 7th, 2013, the archivist emails me to say she has perused the file further and asks if I have dates for letters of interest. However, a little later on the same day she emails me again to inform me that I will need to come into their office or hire a researcher because the file inquiry is too big for them to fulfill. This in contrast to what she originally said on the phone about it not being very big. The next day, in response to my thanking her for making the effort and that I would consider the hired researcher option, she sent me a link to a list of approved researchers the Nat'l Archives recommends. I replied regarding some administrative stuff.

On August 9th, 2013, the archivist again explains the file query is too large for them to fulfill and that I'll need to travel to their office or send a researcher. She closes by saying she is closing my case, apologizes for not being able to help, and wishes me luck.

In October, I inquired about ordering a copy of the file and ended up ordering 46 pages from the file, none of which contained the name Etta Place or any others I requested. So I attempted to order more in January.

On January 8th, 2014, I received an email from a different archivist, this one a PhD in a different division and she informed that I would have to go into their office because making copies of pages which I would be paying for was now unavailable to me. Whereas a couple of months prior they had no problem copying 46 pages at my cost and sending them to me (at my cost), they now would not even do that for me. I was told to either visit their office or hire a researcher. Hmmmmm.

Being an experienced investigator, I went back to the clerk who had assisted me with the 46 pages already received. But instead of receiving a reply from her, I received an email on Jan9th, 2014, from the Supervisory Archivist again telling me that I would have to go back there or hire a researcher. He stated he would personally assist with the query back there. He even sent a photo of the file itself. This included an exchange between us in which he suggested it would be a waste of time to just request random pages to which I replied that, as a former federal agent and a working PI, I have learned that no file search is ever really a waste of time. In the end, I would have to go back there or send someone.

Ultimately, I sent a trusted associate from my national security days. He conducted a search of the file and found no document containing reference to the name Etta Place.

This was the result almost a year after the mysterious researcher 'sent from California' got to the file before I did. I must emphasize that I told no one except Sesh Heri and Joseph Farrell of my inquiries to the Secret Service and the National Archives until they were initiated. The only way anyone from California could have sent someone to get to that file before me -- in any way relative to my investigation -- would be if someone knew what I was onto or my phone had been tapped. Another possibility is simply that another California based researcher happened to need that same file and it was all just a big coincidence. My professional opinion is that there is a very likely chance that documented reference to Etta Place was removed from the file by the 'researcher' sent from 'California'.

Before you decide what happened, I must reveal that before I even pursued the Etta Place theory and wrote EOW2 I had very good reason to suspect what I would find. I cannot reveal the source, but I argue the data provided in EOW2 supports my theory sufficiently enough for present discussion. In the meantime, I am continuing the investigation as I am convinced that Etta Place lies buried in San Bernardino under the name 'Cora Stanton'. IF I am right, the big question remains: The archivist at Secret Service HQ told me that he might not be able to disclose it if Etta Place is in the files.Why, after nearly 100 years, would it be classified that Etta Place had been an asset for the US Secret Service?

EOW2 just might provide the answer after all.

Catching Up On The Latest

I just got back the other day from a six-day trip to the Bay Area where I attended the Secret Space Program Conference in San Mateo. I was along for the ride as a security consultant but it was one of the most pleasurable work experiences I've had. The event was hosted by Henrik Palmgren of Red Ice Creations and featured excellent presentations by Joseph Farrell, Catherine Austin Fitts, Jon Rappaport, Richard Dolan and others. Not only was the conference a great and informative time, the actual road trips there and back were quite enjoyable and productive to my upcoming book research including a touch of Latitude 33.

Since the release of EOW3, I've taken some much needed though brief time away from "the milieu" to attend to other projects, one of which is my next book. This next book will be a 'quickie', only around 100 pages, and written with a co-author. Its theme resonates with EOW2 so keep an eye out for that one. We may tease the cover art (already created) this summer. One of the unexpected results of the trip up north last week is that I've come away ready to start on the follow up to the EOW trilogy sooner than expected.

The follow up book is a spin-off of the EOW research material, some of which goes back prior to my learning about 'Cora Stanton' for the first time, and of course a bunch of data collected since then. Until I identify a title, I'll refer to this book with the somewhat vague moniker of 'the California book'. This material I am quite enthused to finally be digging into with primary focus. It has been on the periphery since 2007-2008 but I had to get through the EOW books first. Now I can jump into this particular pool of mystery, adventure and intrigue and I'm excited. This weekend I'll be drafting an outline (subject to change, of course, as new data emerges) and the real fun will be planning the research expedition I will need to make happen. The California book is going to be a lot of fun all the way around and I'm confident you'll like it a lot.

Watch for posts here. I would like to do a running diary during the research and writing phases of the California book. This diary will not reveal the secrets of the book but it will allow you to sort of come along with me on the journey. I can't promise each entry will be the most profound thing you've ever read, but what diary is? Another thing it will allow me to do is have an interested audience so I won't have to bore the hell out of any travel crew-mates with my running commentary. Ideally, I'll be traveling with my dog and a couple others who will have their own agendas on the trip and I'll have the research time to myself. You can look forward to photos and interesting spots and my (always fascinating) insights. I get more enthused about this book the more I talk about it -- a good sign!

In the meantime, we have a holiday weekend here in the States. Our 'Independence Day' which I'm glad falls on Friday. I like going into holiday weekends with the actual holiday kicking things off.

I'll be back...

First EOW3 Interviews Scheduled

This Friday, June 13, I'll be sitting in with GeorgeAnne Hughes on The Byte Show to discuss the new book. I'll post the link as soon as she has it ready.

This Sunday, June 15, I'll be the guest on Radio Misterioso. Greg Bishop and I will also discuss EOW3. RM airs live at 8-10PM PST.

You won't want to miss either interview because GeorgeAnne and Greg will likely approach the topic from different perspectives so each will likely get into some different aspects of EOW3.

As more interviews are scheduled, I'll announce them here.
