Root and Branch

Root and Branch
ROOT AND BRANCH is a realistic thriller set in a near-future America where an Islamist-inspired intifada triggers emergency security measures that go terribly wrong.

Roger Zorn, owner of a French private security company, is delighted at having won a lucrative contract with the U.S.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as part of the government’s new program of emergency security measures. The measures are launched when the U.S. military response to sneak attacks by Iran and Pakistan on America’s electrical grid provokes a wave of Jihadist-inspired violence across the U.S.A.

Zorn’s work for DHS requires him to apply his company’s Triage risk assessment technology to evaluate terrorist suspects captured in the U.S. and sort out the jihadists from nonviolent Muslim residents. But when Zorn’s inquiries lead him to discover that DHS and its lead contractor have been manipulating Triage scores to deport massive numbers of Muslims and is ‘disappearing’ the most violent ones, Zorn faces a choice.

Will he say nothing and sell his company to DHS’s prime contractor before scandal breaks, or will Zorn step up to expose the abuses and risk bringing the full wrath of America’s national security establishment down on his head?

Masters of the Broken Watches

Masters of the Broken Watches

***Winner of the 2020 American Fiction Book Award for Science Fiction***

“Masters of the Broken Watches filters time, myth, science, and philosophy through the taut structure of a political thriller, gaining momentum with each chapter, as its scientists urgently investigate an almost inexplicable bending of the curve of time.” –Harold Augenbraum American writer, former Executive Director of the National Book Foundation and Raven Award winner.

When you’re in a near-death experience, people say time slows down. What if time does actually slow down? Or when people experience being at the right place at the right time. What if one could predict with certainty that right time and place?

Sebastian Miles, an adventure-loving, risk-taking marine biologist accidentally discovers a new species that has the power to change the way we humans experience time. While performing research, he and his team are shocked by a logic-defying phenomenon–where during one experiment the world outside their lab jumps ahead by twenty-two hours. News of this discovery soon reaches the heads of powerful governments and inadvertently triggers a global hunt to capture and control Sebastian and his team, their research, and the species. These leaders know that this one discovery would pivot the power equation and the group that controls this species will have access to the greatest resource mankind has ever seen – Time. Sebastian and his team attempt to stay one step ahead of their pursuers, but are they willing to risk their lives—in order to share their discovery with all mankind?

This genre-bending novel leaves readers on the edge of their seat. Thrilling like Blake Crouch and science-driven like Ted Chang, yet approached like you’ve never seen before. A captivating adventure that never slows down and makes you appreciate the scientific landscape of our world today. $0.99 on Kindle.

The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up: How a Little Newspaper Solved the Biggest Scientific and Political Mystery of Our Time

The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up: How a Little Newspaper Solved the Biggest Scientific and Political Mystery of Our Time

Hillary Johnson, one of the world’s most respected Chronic Fatigue Syndrome journalists, called this book “fascinating and important.”

If you want to know the truth about the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic, you need to discover the brilliant investigative work Neenyah Ostrom did for a decade. Starting in 1988, Ostrom reported on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for a newspaper called New York Native. What her reporting uncovered about the true nature of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic will shock you.

In The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up, Charles Ortleb recounts his newspaper’s struggle to get the media and the mainstream medical establishment to pay attention to Ostrom’s pioneering investigative reporting on the science and politics of the devastating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic.

By the time you finish Ortleb’s stunning memoir, you will understand why the Centers for Disease Control has been unwilling to tell the public the truth about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The CDC does not want the public to know that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a transmissible illness linked to a virus called HHV-6 that affects every system in the body. They have covered up the illness for so many decades that the neglected virus is totally out of control. Now it is causing a long list of other illnesses and many cancers.

Nobody in the world covered the emergence of HHV-6 and its link to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome more than Neenyah Ostrom. Ostrom’s decade of reporting on HHV-6 was recently vindicated by this statement from scientists at the University of Wurzburg: “While HHV-6 was long believed to have no negative impact on human health, scientists today increasingly suspect the virus of causing various diseases such as multiple sclerosis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Recent studies even suggest that HHV-6 might play a role in the pathogenesis of several diseases of the central nervous system such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression or Alzheimer’s.”

The big question about Neenyah Ostrom and New York Native is this: How many lives would have been saved if the scientific establishment and the mainstream media had paid more attention to Neenyah Ostrom’s reporting on HHV-6 and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in New York Native?

One day, if there is any justice in the world, the CDC and the medical establishment will apologize for not paying attention to Neenyah Ostrom’s groundbreaking work on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that Charles Ortleb published in New York Native. That would be a fitting end to one of journalism’s greatest David and Goliath stories. $5.99 on Kindle.
