See what Hannah Simone, Film/TV actress of hit comedy series "The New Girl" has to say about her father...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDEOigMg1fY
This is perhaps one of the most unusual thriller/mystery you would ever read. A few years back a couple in Christina Lake, British Columbia was caught by the authorities for using bears to protect their POT crop. The bears though committed no crime fell victim to this incredulous situation. And a Mama Bear suffered a terrible fate. You see, what people didn't know that the big Mama Bear had a cub who inadvertently got caught in this terrible situation and went through a roller coaster ride just to survive. In this book the story is being told by the cub.
The world believes in the words of their leaders...especially in the war times! And at certain events the world's leaders feed the masses with lies for political gains. The death of Hitler was such an event. It defies logic that one of the most powerful military strategist would celebrate his birthday with champagne and marry his long term partner while contemplating suicide. And although rumours were created to deepen the mystery, in reality his remains were never found. So what really happened to Hitler? What was so terrible about the truth of his disappearance that the world leaders decided to fabricate lies? The truth is that a petite and unknown little woman of British colony succeeded where the mights of super powers with all their military machinery failed. Soon to be published and to help resolve the mystery of the century is "The Girl Who Shot Hitler'.
TIMES asked Hannah Simone, TV Star on hit comedy 'The New Girl' (and others including George Bush, John Kerry, and Jodi Picoult) what she was thankful for:
He was born in 1947 into a newly independent India. I believe that somehow the spirit of this free Mother India was woven into the fabric of his being. He bravely led with his heart and was the first person in his family to defy strict tradition and have a “love marriage” versus an “arranged marriage.” He refused to let anyone tell him how to live his life, eschewing the dictates of fear.
So when his first-born was a daughter, he decided to break the cycle of patriarchy that denied so many Indian women the ability to have any choice in their own future. Since the day I was born, my dad encouraged me to find my own strength, follow my own heart, and live my own life.
My father wasn’t naive to the gender inequalities I would continuously face as I grew up, so one factor in my life became non-negotiable: my education. He knew a solid education was liberating, inalienable and enduring. It was the key to maximizing my full potential and protecting independence.
It was the one gift I could be given that could not be taken from me.
Because of my father’s courage, vision, and pioneering feminist spirit, I now have two university degrees. I’m building a career and life for myself on my own terms. And perhaps most importantly, I’m able to be in relationships where love and respect are the only reasons to stay.
My father, Narendra (Naren) Simone, paved the way for me, and for that I am thankful.

The Well Read Write Well:
The art of good writing is found in the quality of your reading. I’m sure you have heard this one before. This is an open secret and one of the most important tips on becoming a successful writer. Please pay full attention to the details of this secret. It is an absolute must that you read, read and read. In the words of Stephen King, “If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time or the tools to write.” This is the most critical step in the learning process of becoming a good writer.
Put away your writing plan for the moment and get started by making a list of what you are going to read. Unfortunately, reading commercial novels is not going to help you much. You must read the classics. The mind adapts to its environment. It is equally influenced by a positive or negative milieu. Cultivate your mind with the writings of the masters. You read 19th century writers not because you want to write like them but because you want to be successful like them.
I would recommend that you read the works of Charles Dickens, Leo Tolstoy, Feodor Dostoevsky, Henry James, D. H. Lawrence, Edith Wharton, Graham Green, Somerset Maugham, Jane Austin, Oscar Wilde, Emily Bronte, Thomas Hardy, Evelyn Waugh, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, and Homer, as well as others celebrated in the field. Several online resources can help you determine which books and authors you would like to read. Below are a few examples of such sites:
Like writing, reading is an art too. Casual reading is for entertainment. Passionate reading is for a higher cause—learning from the masters. Read these authors but not as a routine task. Study them with passion and an eye for detail such as how a plot is developed, how characters are formed, how the story moves forward, how conflicts are developed and resolved, and most important of all, how emotions are expressed and made to come alive. Technique is all about ‘how’ and that is what you need to keep in mind when you are learning the art of writing by reading. And reading alone is not enough. Make an effort to evaluate their works in order to build your own resource library. This will be an ongoing exercise in building your foundation as a writer.
Try reading about four to five books of each of these authors. Variety within (for every author goes through a variety of phases in his or her life) an individual author and amongst the diverse group of writers will yield a plethora of writing skills. Remember to follow the rule of VALUE (Variety in Authors for Learning and Understanding their Expertise). Yes, I agree that it is a lot but all this hard work will pay handsome and long-lasting dividends. Don’t let the media hype make you believe that the path to successful writing is easy and it lies in some clever software or a set of three DVD courses or by spending three days at a retreat resort. Work at it and work hard. Find notes on these authors and read them too to see what motivated them to write. Good writing comes from one’s heart and must be in sync with one’s mind. Great writing comes from the soul.
Successful writing requires passion, perseverance and patience.
I am going to give you an insight—nineteenth century masters did not write fiction. That’s right. Their “fiction” was based on events from their own past or on the people they knew and places they visited. They did this because they knew that the best way to tell the truth is through fiction. Here is a tip that will help you with your reading without costing you a penny. On the net, go to amazon.com and search for ‘classic on kindle free’ and you will find most of the classics of these authors for free. Download them to your Kindle.
So, remember the secret that the ‘Well Read Write Well’: believe it, act on it and start reading now.

Fast moving , intricate plot, super ending. It is fun to have an attractive female FBI agent and I look forward to her next adventure."

The secret to becoming not just simply a writer but also a good writer is the goal of every aspiring author. Good enough to be published. Mission impossible? Not quite. Not if you are willing to work at it. There are no shortcuts to success. If people tell you otherwise, beware; they might be selling an idea in the form of a product they are peddling for commercial gain, and it’s also doubtful they are genuine published writers. Any person claiming that he or she can write a marketable book without a history of success is suspect. The real question is not if they can write a book, it is can they write well?
Becoming a published author is not easy but also not impossible. Many can readily pump something out, as is abundantly evident on the Internet, but can they write well? Well enough to be published? Here is one way to do it well.
Good writers don’t appear overnight. Just as an excellent engineer must be trained as an engineer and a good physician must study medicine, to become a good writer one must study writing. A degree in English literature or creative writing may help (if one can afford the time and expense), but it isn’t necessary. Besides, most of us want to write in our forties or fifties or even later because either we are looking for something other than our current routine, or maybe because, as they say, ‘everyone has a book in his head’ that needs to be told. Whatever the reason, I can tell you that as a published author you are sure to attain a quasi celebrity status.
After thirty-five years of working as a chemical engineer assisting in producing more oil for big corporations at a low cost and increasing natural gas production through unnatural means, I decided to take early retirement and try my hand at writing. My first book found some success in the market but I was not happy with it. I then embarked on the methodical process of learning how to write well. Having now published four books with ten more ready for publication, I am offering the ‘Top Ten Secrets of Book Writing’ that I learned in the process of becoming a published author. Here they are:
Yes, you too can join the ranks of successful eBook and paperback writers by following this eBook Guide on the ‘Top Ten Secrets of Book Writing,’ but the process is not as easy as most websites make it out to be. It requires hard work driven by the power of passion. But remember that passion without discipline is organized chaos. So passion alone is not enough; a writing process is necessary. Being an engineer with thirty-five years of experience, I have devised or rather engineered a writing process, based on my experience of the past ten years, which is sequential and methodical and if pursued diligently, will to produce amazing results. Following this process myself, today I am a published author of four books with 3,000 copies in circulation and ten more books ready to hit the market in the next few years.
To simplify the process, I will discuss it by offering the top ten secrets of book writing or if you prefer, how to become a writer. Upon disclosure of all ten secrets I will convert these into a free eBook, available on my website.
Subsequent to this eBook Guide there will be another entitled, the “Top Ten Secrets of Getting Published.” Together they can become your reference on how to write well and become a published writer.
You are now on the journey to a successful and satisfying life as an author. Prosperum Scripto.

Whenever a perpetrator inflicts pain and suffering on innocent and vulnerable victims, there is at least one person who for personal and professional reasons would put up a fight. She is the master of deadly martial arts. She is daring and fearless. They call her 'Equalizer'. She is Sophie Kramer.
Sophie Kramer is recognised by the Bureau and the US President Office as one of the best detectives of our time. Her appearance doesn’t support her tough demeanor for she is five foot-eight, slim but powerful body, with shoulder-length red hair, attractive shoulders, a long, slender neck, vivid blue eyes and knows fully well how to use her looks and slim build to trap perpetrators into a false sense of security.
So don’t be fooled by her appearance. Because if you’ve committed murder and Sophie Kramer is called in, your place behind bars is assured. If you’ve harmed children and she’s on your case, you’ve sealed your own fate. And if you’re a serial killer on the loose, she will not stop before you are eliminated. She lives her life amongst the gruesome, tragic, exciting crimes – and with the satisfaction that justice finally prevails.
We get the measure of the Special Agent Kramer by how she matured in the tough world of the oppressors and murderers, how she prevailed over deep personal setbacks, and the values that this educated and devastatingly beautiful woman carries with her to make an unprecedented success of society’s grimmest and toughest job. Special Agent Kramer is often described by her friends as, ‘half Irish, half Indian, and all-American’ personality.
She inherited great strength and an insight in people’s soul from her tough and spiritual mother, daughter of a Comanche chief. She could see in the depths of darkness, and through her sixth sense would know how to survive. Her father, an Irishman, a product of a broken family, carried significant emotional baggage that eventually rendered him to be an alcoholic. Her baby brother, a victim of drug addiction and sexual abuse chose freedom through suicide and that left Sophie with guilt that perhaps she could have done something to help him. Perhaps because of it, Sophie is driven to be strong to fight atrocities in her own family, in any family.
She owns nothing except a secret hideout where she would spend some time to reflect and realign her soul with her senses.
