About the author:
Hi! Thanks so much for your interest in my books!
My principal interests are true stories of the unusual or of the previously Unknown or unexplained. I have occasionally also written some fiction.
I was born in Memphis Tennessee and grew up in a small town near Tupelo Mississippi.
After graduating from Mississippi State University as an aerospace engineer I moved to Orlando Florida and worked for Lockheed Martin for 24 years. I advanced from an aerospace engineer to a Vice President of the Company and President of the Tactical Weapons Systems Division.
I then formed Parks-Jaggers Aerospace Company and sold it 4 years later.
I continued my education throughout my career with a MBA degree from Rollins College and with Post Graduate Studies in Astrophysics at UCLA; Laser Physics at the University of Michigan; Computer Science at the University of Florida; and Finance and Accounting at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
After selling my aerospace company I formed Quest Studios, Quest Entertainment and Rosebud Entertainment to make films at Universal Studios. I produced 10 films, directed 7 films and wrote 5 films produced at Universal Studios.
I then formed UnknownTruths Publishing Company to publish true stories of the unusual or of the previously Unknown or unexplained. These include books about past events so unbelievable that most people have relegated them to "myths".
I have published 24 books and have an additional 9 in development.
Indian Massacre in Orlando
Arguably the last Indians living in Central Florida in 1883 were all massacred because the chief's favorite squaw loved White Man Cow.
John asked the President of the United States to send soldiers to remove the Indians. John didn't think his request was out of line; after all the government had earlier been moving Indians to the "Indians Territory" (now Oklahoma) for years.
But the President wouldn't do it.
So John had to do it.
He killed every man, woman and child.
This is the story of why he did it.
This is the story of how he did it.
This is the story of the unbelievable consequences.
I believe that Indian Massacre in Orlando is basically a true story. I used old documents and interviews of John's decedents about stories passed down in the family. I also used other historical documents and research from the Internet.
I had to fill in some gaps for some of the minor details which were not available from the interviews or historical data. I wanted to minimize such usages and therefore I have purposefully kept the story short and confined to the true data.
To help you grasp and understand the cause of the massacre I have included a brief history of the relationships between the Indians and the pioneers.
And I have included a description of the paradise in which the local Indians lived before we came. This paradise, while not in its "wild" form, still exists and I have lived in it for most of my adult life.
I believe you will enjoy the story.
