BLOOD RELATIVES - proves that truth is stranger than fiction. This is a “who done it” with twists and turns and multiple murders you won’t see coming. The characters and events are real - including “the woman who legalized abortion in America,” and her children who are caught up in complex family relationships resulting from adoption, abortion, incest, greed and corruption. Just as one may hand down a family recipe, this story, which takes the reader from the 1960s to the present, provides an intriguing mix of Southern pride and prejudice, mystery, motives and murders. Turn up the heat, stir in the action, add a pinch of reasonable doubt, allow to simmer, and feed your craving for a bloody tale.
On 12/8/16, Investigation Discovery (ID) TV aired Joel Domingues story, loosely based on “BLOOD RELATIVES” but emphasized the Prosecution’s theory that he participated in the murder, rather than focusing on the fact of his wrongful conviction, although I emphasized that fact during my on-camera narration.
On 2/13/18, Joel Domingues committed suicide in his cell after various efforts over the years since 2009 to exonerate or parole the innocent man had failed.

SERIAL KILLERS ON THE INTERSTATE
200 Highway Killers by State
Now in both Paperback and Kindle eBook, this unique by-state collection details over 200 Serial Killers who either picked up or disposed of their victims along America's highways and truck stops. Included are their known victims' identities and the nicknames that media attached to their apparent “M.O.” or victim type – such as “The Bra Murderer, “The Co-Ed Killer,” “The Flat Tire Killer,” “The Orange Socks Killer,” “The Freeway Killer,” “The Trash Bag Killer,” etc.
The FBI tells us that 6,000 people per year die at the hands of serial killers and that close to 300 Highway Serial Killers, specifically, are currently on the loose in the United States, prowling the nation – especially those who are among the 3.5-million truckers on the road today. Long-haul truckers who pick up prey in one state often dump the body several states away. And they are in every state – California and Texas having the largest number of such serial killers, but even the smallest states thought to be the “safest” have their share of these predators. So if you're offered a ride by a smiling stranger. Be afraid… Be very afraid. 276 pages. Photos; Indexed.
JAMES MUNRO – And the Freeway Killers. Like Forrest Gump, Jim Munro grew up with multiple physical and mental handicaps to overcome. Unlike Gump who was a likable movie hero and was liked in real life, Jim Munro was never liked – not by his American parents who adopted him from a German orphanage and then discarded him, nor by those who knew about his lifestyle and association with Bill Bonin, California's Freeway Killer.
To unravel Jim Munro for this book, it was necessary to include graphic descriptions of his activities and behaviors, including when he was in the wrong place at the wrong time with Bill Bonin and the body of one of Bonin's many young male victims. That mistake resulted in almost 40 years in prison at this writing, despite that he never killed or injured anyone. Accomplice or victim or both? You be the judge
ESPOSITO - The First Mafioso. JOE ESPOSITO – his origins, his life, even his death – has long been shrouded in mystery and folklore. In the late 1880s, the FBI dubbed him “the first Mafioso” while Italian, British, New York, Chicago and New Orleans newspapers depicted him as “the first international serial killer.”
Orphaned at birth, he adopted multiple identities, trying on new ones as one would try on new clothes. The author brings him to life against vivid backdrops of post-Civil War Sicily and New Orleans people, politics and places, including plantations, brothels, docks, a New York courtroom and the infamous “escape proof” island prison known as “Italy's Alcatraz.”
But to discover the “real” Joe Esposito, we meet Serafina, the petite, bodacious and strikingly beautiful Sicilian woman who had almost as many aliases as Esposito and for whom Joe endeavored to “walk the line.” The truth as to whether “Panama Joe” and Serafina were an Italian “Bonnie and Clyde” makes their story all the more compelling.
FACEBOOK KILLERS - True stories behind 20 uniquely shocking murders facilitated through Facebook with photos of the Killers and their Victims. also indexed, plus Bibliography of sources. Chapters are by category of murder such as, “Deadly Facebook Friending,” “Deadly Unfriendings,” “Facebook Stalker Murders,” “Fatal Facebook Affairs/Hookups,” “Facebook Bullying Suicides,” etc.. The author warns that the increasing number of Facebook-linked murders, which no law can prevent, is a testament to the dark side of human nature. It is therefore essential to be aware that social media’s anonymity which pretends to assure your privacy also nurtures “Facebook Killers.” Be afraid. Be very afraid!

CARANGELO v. CONNECTICUT – A Case of Lifelong Opposition to Government Protected Child Stealing
“Carangelo v. Connecticut” was not won. So why publish a book about a class action that was not won? This book explains how my child was “legally” stolen in 1969 and other children continue to be “legally” stolen. Today, the federal Child Abuse and Prevention Act (CAPTA), and the Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA), intended to help children and families, have more blatantly terrorized and torn families apart for forced adoptions while financially rewarding their kidnappers – government protected child stealing. This book is for adoption reform activists, attorneys, law students, writers, researchers and anyone who is part of half the United States population who have had an adoption or relinquishment for adoption in their immediate family.

FAKING CRAZY - The True Story of a Man’s Perilous Journey in Search of His Mother. As told by Tom McGee, his story begs the question asked by the late adoption reform pioneer, Jean Paton, "Do you have to be truant, steal cars, get into juvenile detention homes, or drop out of school in order for people to realize you need to have someone tell you about your origins?" And we might add, "Pretend to be crazy?" In the case of Tom McGee, the answer is Yes! Ironic is the outcome of his lifelong search for his biological family and himself.
