  • A Bonza Life – The Story of a Baby Boomer

    I am a Baby Boomer. Born and bred in Brisbane, Australia, I lived a very average Boomer life in a rabbit warren of a house in Auchenflower with my returned WW2 soldier dad, stay at home mum and my five siblings.

    We walked to school in those days and stayed and played within a 2 mile radius of our home with other Boomer families for twenty years before venturing out into the world with other Boomer mates and eventually started our own families to produce another generation.

    Historians will be surprised how simple a life we lived in the Boomer suburbs with few pressures and plenty of support but it was our generation’s lifestyle and it certainly allowed for a vivid imagination to entertain ourselves as there was no TV initially and little to do and see until our teen years.

    I have long since adapted to a changed world, which I am sure we created by liberating society in many ways but it has been an interesting journey with school failures, pop revolutions, clashes with police over Vietnam when I was bashed by them and ultimately ruined lives over the high expectations of the ideal world we boomers envisaged.

    As an average boomer I tried to influence the thinking of many Australian and New Zealand politicians with inter-generational thinking through Grey Skills and BONZA and was an advocate for boomer reform long before we truly became the nuisance generation.

    My book is a record of those times and I invite you to review my Boomer life in a much simpler time as an average Boomer and I am sure will encourage Boomers to reflex on their lives. You will also witness my frustration in trying to outlaw ageism in the workplace through advocating to politicians in Australia and NZ on behalf of all mature age workers by demonstrating in front of the Australian Parliament in Canberra and through the Bonza Report in 2018.

  • A Student of the Choir

    The sole purpose of this book is to help us become the best version of ourselves that we are totally capable of being. It is about following our passions, goals and dreams in order to create a life that we want and deserve. This book aims to help us understand ourselves and become the person we truly want to be throughout life’s journey. Most people will follow and do what they think they should be doing in life because it’s what is expected, or because it’s the social norm.

    Rarely nowadays do we ever stop to consider our passions, life purpose or what we actually want to do with our lives. Many of us do something just because we think it’s something we should be doing, when in reality it’s something that we don’t want to do. Often because of this, many people will live unhappy and unfulfilled lives and never know or achieve what they truly want.

    Therefore, this book aims to stray from those expectations and offer a different direction and path in life. This path is all about following our own goals, passions and ambitions and making them a reality whilst becoming the best man or women we can be in the process. It is the path of personal authenticity and self-fulfilment.

    “A Student of Choir” is a book about us as individuals being pupils of life whilst the Creator is the preacher. In this way, the choir is a metaphor for life where we are merely students of such a wonderful gift and we shall never be more than that. Only the preacher is the master of the orchestration. Therefore we will never master anything, but it is through this revelation that we will continually grow and learn as individuals. If we are not masters of anything, there is still more to learn.

    Thus, this book is based on the premise that we can do no more than our best in this life. We will stumble and we will fall but if we focus on our mission and purpose, we will continue to grow upward. We constantly grow by being authentic in who we are and pursue and achieve what we were put on this earth to do.

  • Alcheringa – When the First Ancestors Were Created

    Alcheringa is a story filled with intrigue, deception, and the planned destruction of a mission that left only ninety survivors to be cast upon the Earth.

    Fifty thousand Star-people came from the Pleiades – and many other stars in our galaxy – in a giant starship, the ‘Rexegena’, to restore light and life on planet Earth after it had been taken over by the Reptilians.

    The story is about their survival on a planet whose atmosphere they could barely breathe, a sun that burnt their skin, and a dangerous and poisonous environment that took many of the survivor’s lives.

    Their struggle and success in creating our race is the miracle they wrought. It is our past and they are our heritage.

    The story has been given to us by ALCHERINGA, the Golden One, an Ancient Creator Ancestor known to the Indigenous race of Australia, and the Star People on Earth who remember.

    The way the story unfolds is a true gift from the Source.  A conquest of darkness by the Light of Love.

  • Clarinda & Henry

    Clarinda and Henry tells the story of the Australian Father of Federation, Sir Henry Parkes, and his wife, Clarinda.
    It is a story of their struggles in England in the early 1800s, their hazardous journey to Sydney on an emigrant ship and their lives as early settlers in Sydney and the Blue Mountains. It is a tale of success, but also of hardship and endurance.

    While it tells the story of Henry Parkes’s political life, it has a large focus on his wife, Clarinda, a woman whose story was hidden behind her renowned husband’s, but who, like so many others of her era, helped shape the Australia we know today.

  • Life and a Glass of Milk

    This book is about life through the eyes of a child. It is an amalgamation of thoughts and experiences of a young writer who wants to grow up fast so that he can be independent to discover the world in-depth and what lies within… though when he is grown he will weep on the “good old days.”

    Pages of Nostalgia,
    Said the man as he smiled
    As he shed nostalgic tears
    Rolling to his parched lips
    Quenching a portion of his thirst
    Reminding himself of his thorough childhood
    Memories, familiar faces,
    Fiendish but friendly acts of
    Affection and devotion to those he loved
    And what was more, he dreamt
    Of his outlooks on life
    It was as if he had his current life
    while sipping a glass of milk –
    Life through the eyes of a child
    – Vansh Sharma
