“A Boatload delivers.”
“Tart, quick, and hip. Jack McCoul shoots from the lip.”
When scam artist Jack McCoul marries a smart, sexy, and sustainability-minded yoga instructor, he vows to give up his life of crime for good. But then her punk brother pulls a heist and Jack gets caught in the middle of a lethal fight over hot computer chips. On one side is a greedy high-tech billionaire with a larceny streak. On the other is a Chinese triad bent on revenge. Throw in a crew of yacht racers juiced on steroids and a cop who blames him for stealing the love of his life, and it’s all Jack can do to stay one step ahead while sticking to the straight and narrow. When a corpse turns up and Jack’s fingered as the prime suspect, honesty’s no longer the best policy. He needs all the wit and street wisdom he can muster—including help from a semi-reformed gangbanger—to pull off the con of a lifetime if he’s to set things right and avoid a one-way ticket to death row.

Most people want to know why they should trust what I say about oral history taking and preserving family history. Sounds like a fair question to me.
First of all, I’ve done it. In the late 1980s I set out to preserve the stories of my mom and dad’s lives using a video camera (they were becoming quite popular and user-friendly back then). After many hours of research I created an oral history guide to use on Mom & Dad. Then one day we set out to record their family history starting at Dad’s birthplace – Deer Trail, Colo. It took us several days and over 1400 miles of travel through Colorado, Nebraska and Iowa. The result was a family treasure: 3.5 hours on VHS video tape of their stories told in person and on location. I have done a variety of oral histories over the years.
Second, I research and write about it. Using the research I did and the experience I had with my parent’s oral histories, I wrote and published a book on the subject titled, “You’re Family Heritage, A Guide to Preserving Family History,” now out of print. Thousands of people read the book and took action to preserve their family history, but much of the book is now out of date (It mentions arcane items such as cassette recorders and VHS tapes). This book is the updated version with a narrower focus, a more modern (digital) technology, and a new title. I continue to research, write and keep track of trends and technologies via my blog which can be found at www.RecordYourFamilyHistory.com.
Third, I lecture about it. After the publication of my first book, I was invited to lecture on the subject by the Colorado Historical Society for several years. When I spoke, they introduced me and my book to the crowd as “the seminal source for oral history taking.” I’ve continued to speak on the subject over the years even when I didn’t have an updated book to sell.
Besides writing and speaking extensively on preserving family history and other inspirational and motivational topics, Ross is the publisher of a weekly entertainment paper called Tidbits, (www.TrustTidbits.com) and he is the “Dean” of Tidbits University, the training program for all new Tidbits publishers (www.TidbitsWeekly.com).
He is the host of the weekly radio show broadcast from Colorado’s oldest radio station, 1310KFKA – AM in Greeley, Colorado.
He is a husband, father, and grandfather residing in Loveland, Colorado with his wife of over 50 years.
Dr. Ross is available as a speaker on the subject of oral history or as a keynote speaker.

Named one of the “Best Indie Fantasy Books Worth a Read” on Goodreads
If you love the classic epic fantasy greats, but hunger for a refreshing concept, the Twinborn Trilogy delivers!
One world of magic. One world of reason. Two lives intertwined in connection mistaken for a dream.
By day, Kyrus Hinterdale lives the mundane life of a scribe. By night, he lives out the adventures of Brannis Solaran, a failed sorcerer turned knight. When Brannis leads his battalion into the forest on a routine scouting mission, they are overwhelmed by a goblin force. While leading the survivors to regroup and prepare the empire for the inevitable war, Brannis struggles to understand why a scribe from his own dreams, suddenly seems to be able to perform the magic he never could.
As the two discover the reality of their connection, their comfortable lives begin to unravel. Now they have to share knowledge between worlds to stay a step ahead of the mysteries piling up. Who is behind the unprovoked goblin attacks? How will a world dominated by reason react to the presence of magic? Who is the quiet stranger in the woods who refuses to give his name? And who might be playing a deadly game, with pawns in both worlds?
