When Mike regained consciousness, he had lost his right leg, half his left foot, two fingers and part of his nose, and had extensive internal injuries. His parents were told he had a five per cent chance of survival. After a painfully slow recovery and eight years of living with a leg that would never heal, Mike made the extraordinarily difficult decision to have his remaining leg amputated. More than just a triumph-over-adversity story, Mike's Ditch the Dead Weight combines personal experience with proven scientific research and a practical methodology for letting go of anything that no longer serves you.An inspirational speaker and ambassador for Interplast Australia and Limbs 4 Life, Mike works as a mentor and counsellor to young people after illness or injury.

"Punker to Pastos is the compelling story of one man's struggle to overcome the many temptations and circumstances in life, that often lead us to make choices we later regret. Pastor Kelly Lohrke brings home the reality so many of us, including myself, have come to realize, that the answer to all of life's questions and problems can be found in one person, Jesus Christ. I strongly recommend this book to anyone, both those seeking answers and those secure in their relationships with Christ. It's the story of coming out of the darkness into the light!"

Lust, deceit, and murder bloom in old New England.... Spring, 1764. While the specter of smallpox stalks colonial Boston, much of the city seeks refuge in the burgeoning countryside. Restful, bucolic Bracebridge is one such haven, and young widow Charlotte Willett and her neighbor Richard Longfellow, scientist and gentleman farmer, host a handful of guests undergoing the generally accepted procedure of inoculation. Yet shortly after the quarantine begins, one of the patients is found dead and Charlotte and Richard are thrust into a whirl of rumor, conjecture, and fear. What, if not smallpox, caused the patient's untimely demise? Has the distraught physician in charge something to conceal? And who might have risked contagion to commit murder? Before these questions can be answered, another shocking death occurs. Now, as some superstitious townsfolk blame both the Pox and the Devil, Charlotte and Richard are determined to follow logic and reason to the all too human source of the problem. But can they arrive at the truth before another victim is claimed? From the Paperback edition.
