Dr. Norberto L. Mercado, DD, yearns to help bring peace to his war-torn country, the Philippines, through a unique "water for fire" strategy. The youngest graduate in the history of the National Defense College of the Philippines stresses that the strategy being adopted by the Armed Forces of the Philippines in confronting communist insurgency and Muslim separatism is "heroic", but it is a sure formula of defeat.
"In this age of revolution, the contemporary writer should utilize the pen for the preservation of peace," Norberto L. Mercado, a Filipino author, stressed. This is the reason why all the 13 books he had written in 37 months, an average of one book in three months, as well as the anthologies he has written and published, unapologetically assert the indispensability of peace in a nation’s progress.
The author has written more novels than any Asian writer has in just a brief period of time. In fact, he has surpassed the number of novels written by world-renowned novelists like Russian author Alexander Solzhenitsyn (winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, 1970) and American authors Ernest Hemingway (winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, 1954) and William Faulkner. Solzhenitsyn has four novels to his credit, while Hemingway has eight.
His style of writing is simple and succinct, but poignant and colorful. Hemingway’s THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA, which won for him the 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature, is as simple as I DON’T NEED A THRONE, Norbert’s novel about the love story of the Princess of Thailand. Said novels are just as simple as Solzhenitsyn’s ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF IVAN DESONOVICH. "The simpler the novel, the better," he said.
In line with Japanese Yasunari Kabawata’s writings about the Japanese way of life, most of Norbert’s novels focus mostly on the current situation in his country. Kabawata is the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968.
His books present hope to the Filipino, especially

Paul Tapp, born in 1945, is an Australian award-winning broadcast investigative journalist, whose work in retirement is mainly non-fiction. One such works, described as 'forensic journalism' by prosecutor, John Agius QC, was central to a Commission of Inquiry into the police killing of a fellow Vietnam Veteran. Tapp uses these skills to flesh out his characters and give them reality-perspective. His early years in a mining hamlet with bush horses, hawk-traps and hunting with dogs, has influenced his first major works in fiction, his style in writing true to syntax construction.

Nicholas House is a British born writer and academic from the South of England. He took up writing at a very young age, inspired by the stories of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Fascinated by the natural world he went on to study Geosciences at university. This afforded him the chance to travel and fuel his over active imagination, allowing him to take inspiration from a vast array of varied sources. Despite this Nicholas often includes many simple and often overlooked aspects of everyday life in his writings, entwined with the more grandiose spectacles he has experienced.
Primarily writing Supernatural Fantasy and Science Fiction, Nicholas has also written numerous pieces of published poetry alongside short stories and e-books. With a mind so full of ideas and an ongoing literary passion he plans to continue writing about whatever inspires him long into the future.

~This is Marie, Elizabeth's sister. Author Elizabeth Nicole Bachle passed away September 4th, 2012. All of her works are protected by copy-rite, but as writing was very important to her and she was SO good at it I have decided to continue with her books. There are 3 more to be published over the next few months, all were written by her. I am just finishing covers as quickly as I can manage. A note to any concern about paying for her books...I am not personally taking the money from her book sales, all money earned here will be placed in a bank account for Elizabeth's young daughter (4 years old).
While she is missed by her family and friends, her talent for writing was amazing and this is what she would have wanted! Please enjoy reading her books, leave feedback, and pass it on.
