Hi there. My name is R.D. Brady and I am a reader. And by reader, I mean I may have a problem. I am not content unless I have a book sitting by my bedside. And when I find a really good book, I have been known to pretty much disappear into it. The world could implode and until I’ve reached that last page, I won’t notice.

Of course, that’s not my day job. I looked. There were very few jobs that would pay me to read the books I wanted to read. So, I got a Ph.D. in Criminology and became a college professor. As a professor, you still get to read the stuff you want, it’s just the stuff you want has to have a crime angle. So it slowed up my reading a bit.

When it came to writing my own books, I learned from the books that I loved to read, as well

Making My Writing Time More Efficient

So, I haven’t chatted about anything beyond new releases recently partly due to how little time I seem to have to get things done. I’m running from life responsibilities to work responsibilities and then collapsing in bed.


But I actually have something that I would like to share because it has radically improved my efficiency when writing. It is an app calledNotes Plus. Just to get it out of the...

“For years, the people of Congo spoke of giant chimpanzees that ate lions, fished, and howled at the moon. In fact, the animal was called “lion killer” by the native people. Of course, traditional scientists attributed the rumors to a highly imaginative indigenous group whose bedtime stories had gotten a little out of hand. Besides, the descriptions seemed to more closely match a gorilla than a chimp. It was said that it lived in nests on the ground, rather than in the trees; that it was not aggressive toward humans; that it walked on two feet for longer distances than is typical for a chimp; and that it grew to as large as six and half feet tall. All in all, it was too incredible to be real, at least for the Western world. Still, in 1996, when word of the giant chimps got out, researchers descended on Congo. Although scat, hair, and other evidence was found, it wasn’t until 2005 that the chimps were actually seen by a Westerner. Primatologist Shelly Williams was in the Congo, searching for the creatures, when a group of four of them emerged from the trees, charging at her. They were at least five feet tall, with wide flat faces, a pronounced brow, and gray fur. Yet when they noticed Williams’s face, they stopped their charge and walked away. This lack of aggression toward humans was repeated in other encounters, including those of Cleve Hicks of the University of Amsterdam, who spent eighteen months observing the creatures following the Williamses’ encounter. He, too, found that they had no fear of humans, but rather seemed to recognize humans as a cousin of sorts.”

“In 1953, Charles Hapgood had developed his theory of crustal displacement.  He argued that the Earth had undergone multiple displacements of land as a result of the movement of a liquid core one hundred miles underneath the surface.  Rather than the slow process of continental drift, which split lands apart, crustal displacement could move large bodies of land together and quickly.  In line with his theory, he argued that Atlantis had never truly disappeared but just moved south, where it was renamed Antarctica.  Hapgood’s theory would explain one extraordinary fact about the continent of Antarctica: evidence indicated that at one point in its history, it had a much warmer climate, free from ice.  Hapgood’s theory was scorned by a number of prominent scientists, but Dr. Hapgood had garnered at least one well-known supporter: Albert Einstein.”

“How about the evidence of a nuclear explosion in Rajasthan, India eight thousand years ago?  Or vitrified stones found all over the world that date back through antiquity?”
