"This is fast-paced, thrilling, edge-of-the-seat reading. The Prophetess One: At Risk had me flipping the pages and holding my breath."     

-- Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times Bestseller

 

It’s a very different kind of war.

Why would God choose a pregnant computer programmer to fight it?

            All Anna McClintock wants is a peaceful stretch of beach she can walk to with her new husband, Jack, and her soon-to-be-born child. Jack is finishing his engineering degree this semester and the two plan to leave his Kansas home to build their new lives together.

            But when Anna finds herself in jail for the murder of a preschool child she tried to save, she realizes she is alone, except for God. She has to rely on newfound spiritual gifts as well as her wits and skills in order to save herself, her unborn son, and her marriage.

            And she has another decision to make. This one affects the entire nation.

Real events form the background for The Prophetess One: At Risk

Award-winning author Linda Rohrbough put her journalist skills to work when she saw strange events after her husband’s nephew, Daniel Rohrbough, was a casualty in altthe Columbine shooting. alt

For example, as family at the Columbine memorial service, she noted General Colin Powell was on the platform in full military dress between musicians Amy Grant and Phil Driscoll. But he was never mentioned or introduced, and he never spoke.

She discovered the shooters bragged theirs would be the first of many such events and they low-level formatted the hard disk drives of their computers so no record of their Internet activity could be uncovered. And the officials investigating Columbine looked unsuccessfully for months for third-party involvement in the year-long planning of the shooting.

As she investigated other shootings, she uncovered much more information that led her to believe this sort of thing could be prevented on a grass roots level. The theme of the book is men are important in the lives of children.

Before: Linda’s husband can’t get his arms around her.

 

In 2002, I was invisible. I wore bright orange outfits with huge white stripes and spots and still people didn't see me. I stood in a perpetual shadow. Obesity affected every area of my life in a profoundly negative way. But even though I knew about weight loss surgery, I was not willing to 'die trying.' -- a quote from me in the proposal for the book.

 

I was invited to co-author this book with my surgeon Robert Sewell, MD (www.mastercenters.com). This title is the "everything you need to know"? guide to the adjustable gastric band (AGB or "the band"), a safe and effective weight loss surgery. It is aimed at the more than nine million people in this country with severe weight problems, along with their family members and friends. The book is also designed to serve as a credible source of information and support for those who already have the band.

 

Chock-full of stories of individual patients, from before AGB surgery to several years after their band surgery it also includes helpful information from other experts such as psychologists, dieticians, and exercise therapists will illustrate the special challenges, the triumphs, the financial benefits, and the medical "miracles"? (such as remission of diabetes) for band patients.

 

Note: I've lost 150 pounds since my band surgery in 2004 and went from a size 32 to a size 12. I  saved enough money on medical co-pays, special clothes, orthopedic shoe inserts and groceries to buy the Chevy Tahoe you see in my size 18 photo taken in October 2005.

Upgrade Your Own PC, 1st and 2nd Editions

 

alt      alt

 

Upgrade Your Own PC is aimed at the intermediate to advanced PC users who want to do it themselves. Especially for those who want a cut-to- the-chase approach rather than details you don't have to know to upgrade (such as serial port pin-outs or the type of metal components are made from). The second edition is "upgraded" with over a hundred new photos/illustrations -- just under 300 in all. It includes Windows 98, USB, the Pentium II, the new Celeron processor and more. For the second edition, IDG changed the binding to one a larger format that will lay flat (so the book is easier to use) and redesigned the cover.

Making Money In Cyberspace

 

alt

 

Named the best general computer book of the year for 1998 by the Computer Press Association.

 

It was important to me that this book should be more than a restatement of the obvious. By obvious, I mean what every other book on making money on the Internet says, such as -- the kinds of businesses that work on the Internet, how to put up a web page, what to do to get advertisers, how to take credit cards, and so on. What's new and compelling about this book is it's the first to identify the appeal of the Internet to our psychological make-up as humans -- in much the same way that researchers have already identified how people respond to other mediums such as television or radio. From that springboard, I explain the basic principles that work for business in cyberspace. Over 30 widely varied case studies include detailed information about how to succeed in business on the net.

Awarded best general computer book of 1994 from the Computer Press Association

 

Mailing List Services On Your Home-Based PC (McGraw-Hill, 1994) was my first book for McGraw-Hill. To everyone's surprise, it won the title of Best Non-Fiction Computer Book. Part of McGraw-Hill's Entrepreneurial PC Series of how-to computer-based business books, there was a shortage of writers interested in this book project. I was willing to take on this project because I thought I could prove myself. McGraw-Hill decided I could handle it because of my computer background and because I was doing all the domestic and international mailing for a non-profit organization. And to everyone's surprise the book won a national award. (McGraw-Hill paper 240p illus ISBN 0-8306-4474-1 1994)
