  • Super World Citizens

    This is a true untold story of American patriotic history. It is a story of how a group of ordinary American Citizens and a Prince became involved in US foreign policy and intelligence around the world.

    At one point, the group was a household name in Washington, DC, and had direct contact with high-level officials, right up to
    the president of the United States.

    One senate investigator said, “It is like you entered into a world of science fiction and then you find that it checks out.”

    The story tells how the group, with their sources for intelligence, were one of the key factors in ending the Cold War with the
    former Soviet Union, along with freeing several countries that were ruled by brutal dictators.

    Then there was a nationwide scandal, and the group was abruptly pushed aside.

    Many major magazines, such as: New York Magazine (Christmas Issue) U.S. News and World Report, Time Magazine, and Boston Globe wrote about the group, but the author, due to his privacy and well-being, had decided not to be involved in the articles.

    But now after thirty years, he has decided to write his true, untold story in American history.

  • The Knock

    The Crockett family is a soccer family. All three of their sons grew up playing on tournament teams, so naturally when their youngest son, Dusty, scores the winning goal for the state championship game, the Crocketts host a celebration for the teammates and their families. The only downside to the get-together is that their oldest son, Travis, is unable to be there. Travis Crockett is a hero to all of the members of Dusty’s soccer team, especially after he singlehandedly beat all fifteen of them at King of the Mountain last summer. But as a Navy SEAL, he has the respect of most people. His love for family and country is catching, so even though he is currently serving in Afghanistan, the partygoers can’t help but ask the Crocketts how he’s fairing and reminisce about their favorite times with Travis, especially after his wife, Laci, shows up with news from her ultrasound. The Crockett family thought they had planned the perfect day, that is until The Knock. Join new author Marc Hardage in this heartbreaking novel about the impact one man’s life has on those around him.

    “As an enlisted member and a chaplain who has served in this admirable community for thirty-six years, I consider The Knock extraordinary. It is a picture of the countless sacrifices that are continually made by the brave service members who serve in this nation’s military and their families. Less than 1 percent of the population of this nation is willing to serve in that capacity. The Knock reminds the reader that freedom is never free!”

    —Chaplain Ted Wilson, OCFD
