Born in South Dakota at a time when America was reeling from a dust bowl, depression and a second world war, Evelyn Jones Leite lived with Mamma, Edith Jones, a socialite who marries her Daddy, a broke but charming southerner, Lon Jones.

Book of Proverbs – Wisdom vs. Wilderness delves into the necessity of obtaining wisdom. The primary purpose of the Book of Proverbs is to teach wisdom to everyone. The Book of Proverbs provides intellectual depth and insights and exceptional wisdom on how to live a fortunate and tranquil life, by honoring and respecting God as omnipotent.

Book of Proverbs – Wisdom vs. Wilderness discusses all chapters in Proverbs 1-31 and brings insight, clarity, and basic meaning to several verses in each chapter to solidify why wisdom is essential and mandatory in life, so you can have a blessed life versus living destitute, empty, and obsolete.
speaking about “Terror Strikes”
Detroit newspaper man Marten embarks to write Terrorist Tracks, a book about Terrorism. Follow him, his family, friend Nic (FBI), visit Nevada, Illinois, Ontario Canada, London Britain, Madrid Spain, Tokyo Japan, as he researches for his book. This is NOT a book about death, but one about LIFE (and Living) and of those (foreign and domestic) that would deprive others of that Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness. This book is intended for all audiences - young, old, and everywhere in-between; male, female, not just for macho shoot-em-up, blood and guts, fare; religious, non-religious; political, non-political. However, it is impossible to address the topics and why they want to kill us without delving into some religious texts and politics. The Torah, the Holy Bible, and the Quran, are all addressed. Terror Strikes is not just a book, but a book within a book as the lead, Marten a newspaper man, is writing a book about terrorism. It is also a blog, within a book, as Marten uses his blog as some source material. Terror Strikes not only acts as a history lesson and warning, but concepts of not just those lost but survivors guilt (and the difficult topic of many having suicidal thoughts) and other related issues surrounding violent acts effecting everyday life.
