Like Shards of Glass

I was in the Navy for ten years when I began to remember things that occurred in my childhood. While in the Navy I was diagnosed with Major depression, recurrent, chronic depression and PTSD. These books "talk" about my experiences.

When you encounter someone with "obvious" mental health issues or what I refer to as "Throw Aways" ...What do you think? Feel? How do you "deal" with this encounter? For many it's get away quickly...Like this person before them has leprosy or something. If the roles were reversed...How would you wish to be treated? "Like shards of Glass" begins a journey down a path...Not a straight line journey from point A to the next and so on...It goes were it will, such seems to be the nature of mental illness...Along with confusion, doubt shame, anger and despair. On this path you are free to leave at any time simply by turning a page or closing the book...Those,that live with these issues don't have that option... I was in the Navy for ten years when I began to remember things that occurred in my childhood. While in the Navy I was diagnosed with Major depression, recurrent, chronic depression and PTSD. These books "talk" about my experiences. Again thank you for your interest in my works. (Mature Readers)

"Shards of Glass looks at the processes through which gender is constituted from a poststructuralist perspective: at the usual ways knowledge is constructed in classrooms, the nature of femininities and masculinities, and the children's experience of sexuality. The author challenges us to work with children to allow them as speaking subjects to invent, invert and break old structures and speak/write into existence other ways of being. The new edition involves a refining and developing of the theoretical framework and analysis."--Cover.

As a child, Nathaniel Leone watched one of the most important events in human history. Creatures of legend were revealed to the world as more than just fairy tales. Vampires, Werewolves, Elves, and countless other entities came out of the shadows united as “Alters” – an offshoot of humanity long hiding from the rest of the world. Together, the Alters founded a new nation, “Argyre”, and declared their intention to take their place in society once and for all. The world was different now, everything changed, and Nate’s life had to change with it. Now a rookie in the Cascadia branch of the Alter Control Task Force, Nate works for the very people who shook up the world. Tasked with policing superhuman creatures and the humans who interact with them, Nate and the other agents of the ACTF stand between the two sides on Argyre’s behalf so that other governments won’t do worse. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done – not even crime is exactly the same since the reveal. Finding evidence of a new Alter drug ring, Nate gets dragged into a more dangerous situation than he imagined. With the evidence bringing up more questions than answers and witnesses not providing much to go on, he soon discovers that his suspect might be more than a drug dealer. They may be a murderer, a Shapeshifter, and closer than he thinks.

It was a broken place, bred from fear and distrust - a thousand shards of glass - filled with a people who long ago had given away all that was precious; a people who had been sold, for so long, a foreign betrayal that finally came from within, and for nothing more than a handful of silver. \par These essays, letters and journal entries were written as a farewell to the country Michael loves still, and to the wife he knew as his 'True North'.
