“Ray Schoenke has lived a fascinating life—from his upbringing in Hawaii, to his groundbreaking career as one of the first Polynesian players in the NFL, to his successful business career. Along the way, he has never failed to stand up or speak out for what he believes. I’ll always be grateful for his support, and I’m glad he’s finally telling his story.”

— President Bill Clinton

“…Ray Schoenke, he’s a champion… He got us to the Super Bowl.”

—Billy Kilmer, quarterback for The Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, and the San Francisco 49ers

—Joe R. Reeder, 14th Army Undersecretary & Chairman of the Panama Canal Commission (1993-97)

“As a life-long Redskins fan, I found Ray Schoenke’s book Fat Girl Sings a special treat. He puts you “in the huddle and in the trenches” of NFL battles that led to the Skins first trip to the Super Bowl.”

—Lieutenant General Charles E. Domini, 3-star General, U.S. Army Free on Kindle.

Determined to Persist: General Earle Wheeler, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Military’s Foiled Pursuit of Victory in Vietnam

Determined to Persist: General Earle Wheeler, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Military's Foiled Pursuit of Victory in Vietnam

Determined to Persist takes readers inside the White House, the Pentagon, and U.S. military headquarters in Hawaii and South Vietnam. Based on exclusive contemporaneous correspondence, recently declassified top-secret documents, interviews with participants, and their memoirs, this book traces the internal debates, tensions, and critical inflection points of the Vietnam War during an extraordinary six-year period.

The longest serving Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Earle G. Wheeler was the senior military advisor to Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon. In disgust with their administrations’ disastrous Vietnam War policies, Wheeler shredded his memoirs. He died three years later. In consequence, a gaping hole has existed in the historiography of the Vietnam War – until now.

Determined to Persist overturns long-held, inaccurate perceptions of civilian-military relations during the Vietnam Era and provides a fuller, more accurate representation of the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s role in the Vietnam War.

The prequel to this book, General & Mrs. Earle Wheeler, Their Rise to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Amid America’s Descent Into Vietnam, traces Wheeler’s exceptional, 46-year military career against the backdrop of growing U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia. $5.99 on Kindle.

HOW MUCH FOR A HAPPY ENDING?: From domestic abuse survivor, to dominatrix, to sex therapist and everything in between!

Growing up on a British council estate with dysfunctional parents is no simple task for Sinead Winters. Swept off her feet by deviant, narcissistic bad boy, Tim, a young Sinead is sucked into an abusive marriage with little hope of escape. A chance encounter offers her a new life of glitz and glamour, but it’s not all it seems. Plunged into a world of adult entertainment, she finds herself in the heart of the UK glamour modelling industry.

From lads’ mags to lap-dancing, webcamming to fetish filmmaking, our unlikely working-class heroine leaves no stone unturned, meeting some unsavoury and kinky characters along the way. Miss. Winters is the queen of bad decisions, and her endearing lack of common sense gets her into some cringeworthy and dangerous situations.

Faced with one final test of integrity, will Sinead be tempted by the road that leads to ruin and regret, or choose the path to respectability and romance?

Winters offers the reader a rare glimpse into the dark and mysterious world of personal services, the men who use them, and the lives of the women who provide them. Discover:
* What really goes on behind the curtain in a lap-dancing booth
* What an adult photo-shoot is like behind the scenes
* The secret codes that escorts use to advertise their services and what they mean
* A unique insight into male sexuality
* The surprising psychology behind sexual fantasies
* The truth about what it’s like to work as a professional dominatrix

In this gritty, female-empowering, tell-all memoir, Winters pulls no punches as she recounts her experiences in intimate, un-filtered detail; with down-to-earth wit, refreshing honesty, and an unapologetic potty mouth! Hilarious, touching, and sometimes heartrendingly uncomfortable, Sinead will make the reader squirm in their seat as she dishes the dirt on the tease and the sleaze of the adult industry.

General & Mrs. Earle Wheeler: Their Rise to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Amid America’s Descent into Vietnam (Military Leadership in Action)

General & Mrs. Earle Wheeler takes readers inside the White House, the Pentagon, and the household of the most senior officer of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Since the position of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was established in 1949, only 20 officers have attained this pinnacle of the U.S. military profession. Each of their stories is remarkable, yet the biography of perhaps the most distinguished member of this small, elite fraternity has only now been written.

General Earle G. Wheeler, U.S. Army, became the senior military advisor to President Lyndon Johnson in 1964 and continued in this capacity under President Richard Nixon. In disgust with their administrations’ disastrous Vietnam War policies, Wheeler shredded his memoirs. He died three years later. In consequence, the biography of one of the most important figures of the Vietnam Era has remained inaccessible — until now.

The companion volume to this book, Determined to Persist: General Earle Wheeler, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Military’s Foiled Pursuit of Victory in Vietnam, explores Wheeler’s contributions to national security policymaking and civilian-military relations during an extraordinary six-year period marked by America’s growing involvement in the Vietnam War, its zenith, and the beginning of U.S. disengagement.

General & Mrs. Earle Wheeler complements that volume by tracing Wheeler’s exceptional, 46-year military career against the backdrop of growing American involvement in Southeast Asia. Based on exclusive, contemporaneous correspondence, official records, interviews, and memoirs, it also highlights the unheralded, yet vital roles played by military spouses and reveals the challenges of military family life. $1.99 on Kindle.
