It's so easy to take things for granted. Take, for example, trees.
Oaks provide shade and plenty of foliage to protect against sudden showers and prying eyes, but there was also the added bonus of load-bearing lower branches that someone nimble could scramble onto should trouble come calling... and you should know, trouble had me on speed-dial.
Living on the streets wasn't a walk in the park, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home, and after some eight months of being on my own, I'd gotten my routine down to a fine art - a morning dumpster dive followed by a dip in the Central Park pond - when one day I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.
We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn. The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would've been the end of our story if we hadn't been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully's clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.
So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a seemingly all-powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?
Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe - even if it meant risking my own life.

I highly recommend it to anybody who’s a fan of YA or even just a fan of reading in general." - Amazon Customer.
Shattering the Myths of Darwinism: A rational criticism of evolution theory
Richard Milton has been a science writer and journalist for more than forty years. In Shattering the Myths of Darwinism he re-examines Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection from a strictly rational standpoint, in the light of recent scientific research.
His independent reporting shows that much of the ‘scientific evidence’ for Darwinism that is taught in schools and colleges is deeply flawed - in some cases is no better than pseudoscience or junk science.
His investigation shows how Darwinism the scientific theory has been slowly replaced by Darwinism the religious dogma and how anyone who dares even to ask questions about the theory is stigmatised as a heretic who must be attacked and denigrated by the theocracy who have appointed themselves as guardians of the Darwinism paradigm.
In subject after subject, Milton shows how the modern theory of Darwinism has been erected on supposition, assertion, and assumption while the real scientific evidence for the theory is weak, circumstantial and inconclusive. Darwinism is exposed as resting on a foundation of argument, rather than on empirical evidence or experiment.
To most students, teachers, and even some scientists it will come as a surprise to learn that recent research into the age of the Earth has produced evidence that our planet could be much younger than had previously been thought: existing methods of geochronometry have been found to be deeply flawed and unreliable; the extent of genetic change by selection has been found experimentally to be limited; only a catastrophist model of development can account for important Earth structures and processes such as continental drift and most fossil-bearing rock formations - most of the Earth's surface in fact. These major discoveries have had profound consequences for the neo-Darwinist theory of evolution, yet few of them have found their way into the public domain, still less into school or university textbooks or museum displays.
Equally, many of the iconic symbols of Darwinism, quoted as though sacred texts, are now known to be just as flawed. The beak of the Galapagos finches provide no evidence for evolution or even natural selection, since there are not thirteen species of finch on the islands but just one. So-called ‘industrial melanism’ in the peppered moth, beloved of biology teachers and museum curators alike, is a figment of Darwinist imaginations. Fossil species such as ‘Lucy’ and her fellow Australopithecines have been restored in museum displays to look like upright walking humans while in fact they have been described by paleoanthropologists as arboreal apes.
This book sets out to make accessible, and put into context, these new discoveries to enable non-scientists to evaluate for themselves the status of the general theory of evolution and the new light cast on existing theories by the latest discoveries.
What the Press said about ‘Shattering the Myths of Darwinism’
"The world of science faces the biggest challenge yet to one of its most basic beliefs: Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. An authoritative compilation of scientific findings." Neville Hodgkinson, The Sunday Times
“Richard Milton's book . . . could shake the ‘religion’ of evolution as much as ‘Honest to God’ shook popular Christianity 30 years ago." Leader Column, The Times
"Milton . . . utters some important warnings. We ignore them at our peril."
Julia Neuberger, The Sunday Times
"In his popular book, journalist Richard Milton shows Darwinism as a crumbling edifice, supported only by a conservative scientific establishment." Matthew Cockerill, The Daily Telegraph

The Pet Healer Project is a collection of profiles of internationally known animal healers. From energy healing (Reiki) to small, subtle manipulations and movements (Feldenkrais), these healers work on all animals from alligators to zebras, motivated by one deeply held belief, that life--all life--is precious, that our pets are our families, and that healing is always, always possible. For fifteen years, Sandy has written several books on healers of people; it was only after Charley, her Brussels Griffon, was attacked by a coyote and had to undergo multiple surgeries, that Sandy, fearing Charley would suffer lasting after-effects, began to look into the possibility of healers for animals. To her surprise, not only did they exist, they were extraordinary people: some with degrees in science and medicine, some teachers and best-selling authors. You will meet a former architectural engineer who put her talents to the structure of animals; another who invented the Healing Touch for AnimalsTM and has taught over 8,000 students from around the world; and a South African interspecies communicator with a message about ways to restore a deep relationship with all life. Sandy reached across the pond to the English countryside to world famous healers, one the founder of a sanctuary for former show and racing horses, another who has published books and teaches courses in animal healing.Fourteen healers in all, each of whom fights for the lives of animals not only out of a sense of duty, but because love and compassion of animals inspire in each of us a profound sense of humanity. The Pet Healer Project is a collection of their amazing and often miraculous stories.
