Join us on our journey as we explore the beauty and intriguing nature of life in all its manifestations, in faraway places, and even right here at home, in the Grand Canyon.

This adventure tale is about a real cat named Whiskers, who traveled the world, but mostly stayed home, and lived a tumultuous life as the sage of his family.

Follow us to this true story of feline adventure and enlightenment. First Printing Autumn 2011.

Accelerating to Twilight

Accelerating to Twilight

"His picture of a Life Centered world is alluring and could, perhaps should, invoke a social movement. Accelerating to Twilight - The Limits of Technology is a fascinating read for many fans of technology, futurist social economics and people seeking balance and harmony within their lives; as the pace of our development needs to have the objective reflection of where we have been in order to help guide us to where we are going." Pacific Book Review

"Smith writes conversationally, with a narrative thankfully free of didacticism. Overall, the book is sure to appeal to armchair historians and social critics." Blue Ink

In preproduction for release in late 2019
