Dude, Where’s my Walking Stick?

Dude, where’s my walking stick?

After my life was suddenly flipped and turned upside down, I decided to take a long walk across New Zealand’s South Island to clear my mind and heal my soul. With a pack of old, worn-out equipment, very little experience, and a body that hadn’t seen a lot of physical exercise, I set off alone and terrified, to tackle the Te Waipounamu section of the Te Araroa: a 1,300 kilometre trail through some of the most incredible and beautiful landscapes Aotearoa has to offer. From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, I survived 69 days of wet feet, sore muscles and far too much muesli. This is my journey…$2.99 on Kindle.

Chase of the Rising Sun

Chase of the Rising Sun
Immersive, fascinating and with an ending that will quite simply…blow your socks off!

Who ever really knows themselves? And if you don’t know yourself, can you ever be truly happy? Mark Rasper is a thirty-year old, man who has always had a fascination with Japan. It started when he played Metal Gear Solid with school buddy Paul, becoming thoroughly captivated not only by everything Japanese, but by the character Solid Snake. When a transfer opportunity turns up at the company he works for, he doesn’t hesitate, and before he has time to change his mind he is on a plane to Tokyo. Mark is no tourist; he is there to be absorbed into this kaleidoscope of colors, with its rich heritage and honorable lifestyle. He soon learns that karoshi means overworked to death, and that being able to sing makes him a karaoke star! But what will he learn about himself? Is he embracing a new life, or simply running away? What will it take for him to stop and really look deep?

Chase of the Rising Sun is an invitation to take a peek into the wonderful, colorful world that is Japan. Soak up traditions, and experience real life in Tokyo – a world apart from ‘Lost in Translation.’ Absorb the atmosphere; get to know the people, and witness first-hand one of the most devastating events in Japanese history.

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver’s Paradise as a Father

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver's Paradise as a Father

When a midlife surprise upends his plans, will his dreams of exploration end…or begin anew?

Andrew Jalbert has always been an adventurer at heart. Drawn to the breathtaking island of Bonaire in his twenties, he transformed a passion for diving and natural beauty into a career as a writer and underwater photographer. But with goals to retire to the Caribbean paradise, he was unexpectedly gifted with fatherhood at age forty-three and the challenge of merging two seemingly incompatible lives.

Determined to pass on his appreciation for the dazzling theater of the sunshine and the artistry of undersea landscapes, Andrew annually took his son to the place he so loved. And over the course of their week-long excursion when the boy was five, the doting dad found the isle’s magic renewed by an insatiably curious child.

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver’s Paradise as a Father is the compelling story of a man who thought he’d enjoyed all of life’s pleasures only to find them enriched by parenthood. Told in lyrical prose, Andrew recounts both his early days exploring the island’s treasures and the wonders of his kindergartner’s fascination. Along the way, he relates the history and culture of Bonaire’s people, illuminates the critical need for conservation, and realizes life seen through the eyes of the young is among the greatest visions imaginable.

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver’s Paradise as a Father is an expertly woven travel memoir. If you like evocative descriptions, wisdom conveyed with humor, and educational asides, then you’ll adore Andrew Jalbert’s introduction to the tropics.

Winner of the 2020 BIBA Award for Nonfiction/Travel. $1.99 on Kindle.

Free: King Genghis I

King Genghis I
King Genghis I is a satirical adventure novel that blends timely realism and political fantasy.

Turan Mugayev, the protagonist of the book, is a New Yorker who travels from the heart of Western civilization to Genghistan, a small, hermetic Asian kingdom, ruled firmly but kindly by an affable, self-appointed benevolent dictator, who like other compassionate dictators is concerned principally with the well-being of his people.

The bond between the two men upsets the kingdom’s conventional wisdom, alters fates, and changes Turan from a broken-hearted and gloomy young man to a love-struck hero. Because, apparently, there’s nothing like the confines of a spunky little dictatorship to spark a new love. Free on Kindle.

Everything But the Truth: The Story of our Scandalous Grandmother

Everything But the Truth: The Story of our Scandalous Grandmother

This is Part 1 of a 4 part novel about a woman born in the backwoods in 1900. In those days, women couldn’t vote, drink in public, or speak their minds outside of their homes. Most women anyway, but one thing for sure, Margaret Rose Nolan, wasn’t most women. Born into north Appalachian’s piedmont, she knew what she wanted, and it wasn’t to live in the backwoods of Alabama surrounded by poverty and ignorance. She didn’t care what women were supposed to do or what others thought of her; she followed a single-minded purpose — create opportunities for the things she desired. If getting what she wanted required manipulating men, then that was too bad for them. It wasn’t her fault men liked her, but she used it and used it well. In those days, women called her a Jezebel. She called them ignorant. She moved from moonshine to champagne, from rowboats to cruise ships, from foolish foothill suitors to society’s elite, usually at the expense of others, even her own children.

Pat Conroy, my first cousin, and I spent time in our grandmother’s ‘big house’ in Atlanta. Pat and I traveled together to Piedmont, Alabama, to research our family history. I spent many summers visiting with the people who knew Margaret when she was young. Much later in life, our ailing grandmother came to live with my wife and me for more than a year. She regaled us with tales of her life. This book is a fictionalized account of her life. She lived the life as told, but just like her, the story has to have some lies and exaggerations, or it wouldn’t be our grandmother. $0.99 on Kindle.
