Fleeing his father's anti-Semitic organization, Charles Devonshire journeys into the most volatile land-grab in history -- Palestine. Charles pursues a beautiful but mysterious librarian, Gladia, who leads him into the elaborate Jewish underground. While joining their plight to reestablish a homeland, he falls in love with her and faces painful challenges within their culture gap. In the midst of battling the hostile inhabitants who also laid claim to Palestine, he searches for clues of his own troubled past.
Based on actual events “Rebirth” about the rebirth of Israel, draws you into 1948, into a world of intrigue, espionage and anti-Semitism. Witness how ancient prophecies were fulfilled against impossible odds as Jews built a nation and defied skeptics.

Who or what inspires your writing?
I wanted to write about actual events and also include a great story with the interpersonal struggles that go with the events in Rebirth. Many life-lessons can be learned in this story.

When did you know you would be a writer?
I've been writing since the 1970s and at about age 17, I knew I was a writer.

How long did it take you to write your first novel?
Three years.

What is the hardest part of writing for you?
Editing, editing, editing…Until it's just right. I spent just as much time editing and perfecting Rebirth as I did writing it.

Do you have any writing rituals?
I love to camp out at the local cafe where I live (in Southern California) get a salad and some grommet tea, and write all day.

Have you written any thing else?
I've written a non fiction book about prophecy and hundreds of songs, both with lyrics and music; Also scripts for professional videos.

Any advice to aspiring writers?
Don't wander with bits and pieces of writing this and that; write a consistent story and don't rush it or stop to write anything else until you finish it.

Who are your favorite Authors?
John Grisham and Nicholas Sparks.

What are your favorite books, or which book has impacted you the most?
I like the same genre as I write in; Historical Fiction. Pearl Harbor was very good.

What are you currently reading?
I have stopped for the time being until I finish my next novel.

How do readers find out more about you?
Rebirth's website has everything, including lots of extra info about me, Rebirth's background and reviews from book critics.
Although writing Rebirth was a massive work of labor and love, it has been one of the most rewarding creative experiences I've had in my three decades of writing and composing various works.
I learned so much about how the human spirit can prevail through some of the worst tragedies and trials. Rebirth will open readers to an era of history that will both entertain and fill one with incredible acts of human bravery—all based on real events.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
