THE ACCIDENTAL ANARCHIST is the true story of Jacob Marateck who, by the time he was 25-years old, had been sentenced to death three times in the early 1900s in Russia -- and lived to tell about it. That was when he decided to overthrow the Czar. The book is based on Marateck's diaries and maintains his unique voice that was filled with humor and optimism despite poverty, starvation, and the horrors of war. His story is proof that it is not only the circumstances of our lives that determine who we are, but rather the way we choose to interpret them that defines our personalities and, to some extent, our destinies.

Reporter: You knew for over 50 years that former speaker of the House of Representatives and 2nd in line to the Presidency of the United States, Dennis Hastert, was a serial child abuser. Why didn't you say anything?
 
Mr. Tipton: At the time I lacked the courage and personal integrity to accept responsibility by not making the information public. If I had, I would also have to admit that I was complicit in the abuse of 30+ Scouts that I was instrumental in recruiting.
 
Reporter: Why is the book not available until May 1, 2021?
 
Mr. Tipton: Because the last part of the book will chronicle how well or not the Boy Scouts of America upholds their promise to be make things right for the thousands of abused Scouts that never should have suffered if the BSA had been open and honest as the Scout Law instructs.
 
Reporter: For over 3 years you allowed yourself to be sexually abused. Why did you keep going back to your abuser?
 
Mr. Tipton: Because he loved me, at least I felt loved. My home life was terrible. My Mom was bedridden with Multiple Sclerosis and my stepfather was an emotionally and physically abusive alcoholic that was gone 4 days a week. At age 10 I had to handle everything at home including taking care of my three younger stepsisters. At Lost Valley I was loved, nurtured, encouraged, listened to, and appreciated. As an adult I realize that was the pattern of a serial child abuser. As a child, I craved what Lost Valley offered.
 
Reporter: What will you do with the money from book sales?
 
Mr. Tipton: Make the movie. I've done it before. https://www.amazon.com/Heart-Beholder-Chloe-Grace-Moretz/dp/B0716M8G4W
 
Reporter: Why bring all of this out now since it happened over 50 years ago?
 
Mr. Tipton: Because it is time to hold the Boy Scouts of America responsible and they agree. I supported the BSA when my Mom was our Cub Scout Den mother and when I was a Scoutmaster for my son. I still support the BSA and I want them to recover from their Chapter 11 bankruptcy and be the Boy Scouts we all love and respect. The guilt I carry for leaving my best friend behind will always be with me. But after all of these years I hope to achieve some level of personal closure.
 
"Lost Valley - Lost Innocence" is the true story of how two best friends went from Boy Scouts to Boy Sex Toys in a nation-wide pedophile ring located at the Lost Valley Boy Scout camp outside St. Louis. The two Scouts were pimped out sexually to Scoutmasters and Boy Scout volunteers through 6 different pedophile rings in St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, Cleveland, Nashville, and New Orleans. None of the rings was uncovered except the New Orleans ring, which made headlines when it was discovered that the head of the New Orleans Police Child Sex Abuse Unit was actually a very active pedophile and Scoutmaster.

I woke up in Intensive Care with a ventilating tube down my throat
 
"A truly inspiring story that takes you with Iain on his journey from a near death incident through a long, difficult and challenging recovery. A beautifully written work that also injects humour into a serious situation." Amazon.com
 
“Thursday, June 15, 2017, will be embedded in my memory forever,” says author Iain MacLeod.
 
“I greeted the summer day eager to face the world with my usual free-spirited independence, and ended the day lying in the Intensive Care unit of a hospital in Aberdeen, Scotland, with a ventilating tube down my throat. Billions of people get out of bed every day without any problem, and that had been true my entire life despite being a wheelchair user with Cerebral Palsy since the age of three. But when I got out of bed that fateful morning, everything went horribly wrong.”
 
In his book 10 Seconds That Changed My Life, Iain inspires with his realistic, heartfelt writing and original poems of his beloved Scotland. He captures the various stages of his hospital experience as well as his personal journey through joy and sorrow, frustration and elation, and the reality of coming home to a new normal.
 
By writing and publishing this book, he hopes to encourage those with special needs to never give up, and to always remember that they are able, not disabled, and have unique abilities to share with the world.

A turbulent childhood is at the root of what went on to be an equally turbulent adulthood for Daniel. Like so many others, his abuse begun at home. With no fixed father figure and a physically abusive mother, what should be pleasant memories were turned into nightmarish recollections.
Social Services soon intervened and at the age of 13 and he was placed in a children’s home. Whilst places like children’s homes are created for the protection of children it seems as though they can often be a breeding ground for the abuse and manipulation of children. His experience with a number of institutions that were put in place to prevent the harm of children has proved that there is a blatant betrayal of trust by those put in a position of authority.
The lack of moral backbone that such systems employed left him and a number of other children confused about authority and the law – a defective trait that led to misguided criminal activity during our youths.
His never dying determination and love for his wife made him turn the things around. He is a living proof that no matter how bad it gets, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Everything that we hear surrounding motherhood portrays a beautiful, nurturing, and a powerful bond that cannot be broken by any human being, or length of time. Nonetheless, this idealism is not the case for all mothers.
From her earliest memories at four years old, Callie Flinn began to notice that her mother differed greatly from the others around her.
Callie’s school friends had mums who were kind, warm, and selfless in nature, whereas Callie’s mother, Donna Flinn, was only able to mimic this behaviour in public. In private, Donna’s true and sinister identity would regularly emerge. Instead of providing care and an abundance of love for her daughter, Donna began to carry out wilful acts of spite, which included using violence, severe neglect, and intolerance towards her preschool child. Callie is parentified; she is used by her own mother and heavily burdened by Donna’s erratic and volatile emotional outbursts. Callie is unable to process the world around her and therefore, she begins to feel unsafe on a daily basis; Callie lives, day to day; in flight mode. She does not receive comfort from her mother; however, the expectation is for her, a small child, to provide this for Donna. Slowly, Callie begins to hear the same message repeated loud and clear, that her feelings do not matter and that she is to put the needs of everyone else around her first.
The situation would only become worst for Callie, as her mother and father split and Donna begins a new relationship with Allan.
