This book, "The Long and The Short of Life" is a literary composite sketch of my life from the early days of growing up in the Queensbridge projects of New York, then going into the military (U.S Air Force). I subsequently answered the call of God to the gospel ministry. I did not really plan my career however, through divine planning it all worked out. In this book I attempt to not just share my unique experiences to some degree, but to metaphorically demonstrate how life can be more than just something that just passively happens and to show the importance of making things happen without the need to ask, what happened? My travels throughout the United States and many parts of the world has left me with a greater appreciation for the challenges of life, geography and God's wonderful creation. I trust that all who read this book will feel a sense of connection with my experiences and be able to understand as I do, just how important it is for me to share over five decades of my life with my readers. In short, this book in fact is a journey of my life, piloted by the Holy Spirit. Thank you for allowing me to unveil myself to you in this book, as you read; The Long and The Short of Life.

Set during the French and American wars, Fourth Uncle in the Mountain is a true story about an orphan, Quang Van Nguyen, who is adopted by a sixty-four year old monk, Thau, who carries great responsibility for his people as a barefoot doctor. Thau manages, against all odds to raise his son to follow in his footsteps and in doing so, saves his son, as well as a part of Vietnam's esoteric knowledge from the Vietnam holocaust. Thau is wanted by the French regime, and occasionally must flee into the jungle, where he is perfectly at home living among the animals. Thau is not the average monk; he practices an ancient lineage of Chinese medicine and uses magic to protect animals and help people. As wise and resourceful as Thau is, he meets his match in his mischievous son. Quang is more interested in learning Cambodian sorcery and martial arts than in developing his skills and wisdom according to his father's plan. Fourth Uncle in the Mountain is an odyssey of a single-father folk hero and his foundling son in a land ravaged by the atrocities of war. It is a classic story, complete with humor, tragedy, and insight from a country where ghosts and magic are real.
