Imagine people sharing positive ideas and visions on making Earth a better home for this and future generations.


“Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. Without books, the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are engines of change, windows on the world, ‘lighthouses’ (as a poet said) ‘erected in the sea of time’. They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print.”

– BARBARA W. TUCHMAN (1912-1989) American historian, writer

Alphabet The books offer evidence that I am like everyone else – trying to make some good sense out of our shared life experience, and perhaps adding a little push in the joined efforts of millions of men and women around the Earth to create a better world now and for future generations.

In the interest of complete personal honesty, the early writings (2012-2013) were my first efforts. My style and editing could be described by professors of Art or English as somewhat “raw”. That said, know that throughout the writing, editing and publishing process on those first efforts my intent was always 100% benevolent.

September 2015: “2016: World Peace Writings” is my newest book, which readers of earlier efforts will appreciate for its much improved quality.

“Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world.”

  1. Jerry,
    I knew you were a writer, but i thought you just blog. I did not know you had your own published books. How great is that?! I might too, someday. And I’ll definitely give your books a read.


    1. Gunjan,
      I am self-published. If you want to write eBooks I would suggest you go to and download their free “Smashwords Style Guide” – it will save you a ton of headaches with formatting and allow you to produce a high quality eBook. Why someday when you can start today? The hardest part of writing a book is being alone in a room with your pen and paper/keyboard. You can find tutorials on YouTube by people who are self-published, as well as for designing eBook covers. Then comes the many hours of actually writing your book(s). It was a great learning experience. Good luck. You can do it! 🙂


      1. I may be very very late in replying to this comment….but thanks so much! That helps. I now work with a content development firm, as a writer… And though I know now that many tutorials exist, this comment has somehow given me something to consider!


        1. Gunjana,
          How are you. What do you mean, late…? It’s only been 3 years. 🙂 If you have $4.99 to spare from your next paycheck, that’s the price for an eBook copy of “2016: World Peace Writings” (self-published September 2015). Hope you, family and friends are doing well in your part of the world. Thank you for the “prompt” reply. 🙂 Peace.


          1. Hello Jerry,
            Yes. Only three years. 🙂 Can or cannot be a long time. I’ll surely take a look at the eBook. I am doing great and so is everyone else. here is fine, what about you?

            Did you checkout my latest post? Please do, if you haven’t already.
