Jesus Was Born In September or October While The Shepherd’s Were Still Out In the Fields With Their Flocks By Night


Pagan customs and traditions were so popular in the days of Noah’s  great-grandson, Nimrod, that when Jesus was born approximately 3,000 years later, Christians tried to convert pagans by placing the birth of Jesus on the major holiday celebrating the pagan god of the sun.

What was the result of mixing the teaching of Jesus, God’s only Son, with the false sun god?

How many people know what these week long celebrations elevating Nimrod, as Mithras, the beloved sun god entailed?

This knowledge would send a chill down the spine of any human being with a pulse.

MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS, subtitled, CHRISTMAS UNLOCKED, takes its characters back in time to discover first-hand where all of these popular and no-so-popular traditions and customs originated.

This historical fiction book also depicts how many of these insidious traditions still exist today, imbedded in the maligned rendition of the birth of Jesus. There is another reason for the season.

MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS is based on accurate world, ancient, antediluvian and Bible history. It may be purchased as an eBook and softcover through iUniverse.com.

White Supremacy and Slavery vs Abolitionism and Freedom of Slaves in the USA is Featured in MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS


White Supremacy fueled the start of the Civil War in the United States of America. The human ideal of the Union States of the North that people did not own people, won the war with the Confederate States of the rebel South who had years of slave holding heritage. During these years, the Underground Railroad was alive and well in the greater Sturbridge, Worcester, Northampton, area.

The Underground Railroad began in 1780. By the time reflected in the living museum at Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, 1830’s, the safe houses, called stations, were well traveled by Harriet Tubman and her soon to be freed former slaves.

Although slavery was not legal in the northern states, if a southern slave owner came looking for his runaway slaves, there was a penalty for people of the North who helped the fugitive slaves escape, since slavery was legal in the south.

Meet Harriet Tubman who led the way for over 300 former slaves; and Harriet Beecher Stowe who was so upset by the idea that people owned people and treated them unfairly, that she wrote about “Eliza,” based on a slave girl she had met.

Read about former Presidents Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Van Buren, the Battle of 1812, and the Seminole Indian Tribe at the time in Spanish Florida.

Meet Robert Carter III, a wealthy and prominent member of the planter class in Virginia, who owned hundreds of slaves going back to 1791. Carter had a change of heart and later released many slaves as freed men and women. He was so wealthy that President Jackson borrowed money from him, and President George Washington’s nephew proposed to Carter’s daughter.

Former President Jimmy Carter is a descendant of Robert Carter III, who was also known as King.  Carter III descended from William Strother, on his father’s side. Everyone at that time knew Carter III was descended from English royalty, going back to Charlemagne and William the Conqueror, and many other English kings. Presidents Zachary Taylor and John Tyler were also defended from Strother. President Jimmy Carter is also related to President Barack Obama. They are eighth cousins.

History has a way of repeating itself when we do not take heed of the lessons of the past.

This is a must read for people of all ages. This is a book based on accurate history, ancient history and Bible history. It is available in softcover at $13.00, and as an EBook at $3.99. http://www.iuniverse.com/Bookstore/BookSearchResults.aspx?Search=Mystery%20of%20the%20Sturbridge%20Keys

Summer Reading: MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS is a Must Read


History reveals that the Underground Railroad was alive and well in 1830’s in the Sturbridge, Worcester and Northampton, Massachusetts area, as MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS addresses. The Religious Society of Friends Quaker Meeting Houses took the lead in promoting human equality, human rights, and even women’s rights.

Harriet Tubman plays her famous role, highlighted in this book. Harriet Beecher Stowe was also so moved by the prejudice and unfair treatment of other human beings, that she wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Both characters play a role in reviving history, which should not be forgotten. Without conscious awareness of history and its prejudices, history is bound to repeat itself.

Antediluvian history is also addressed in this fiction work addressing issues that continue to affect us today.

The history of Christmas, how Christmas really came to be, and how it evolved with today’s traditions is finally revealed. This is a wonderful, educational book that should be on everyone’s summer reading list.

Truth Is Better Than Fiction ~ Publication On Hold


Publication of Mystery of the Sturbridge Keys is now on hold, while alterationsfront-cover are being made. Originally innovative concepts were presented at such a fast pace, it left readers with their heads spinning. The truth of accurate history need not be distracted by flights of fancy. The truth itself, the truth about how Christmas really came to be, and how Noah and his sons repopulate the world, is itself utterly amazing, backed by biblical and ancient historical references. In this case, the truth is extensively more wonder-filled than any lesser attempt to draw the reader in could possibly be. I will post again when the revised copy is perfected.

Thank you all for the tremendous success of the début of this book. There were two book signings, one at Barnes and Noble Bookstores at the Shoppe at Blackstone Valley in Millbury, MA, where 20 copies of Mystery of the Sturbridge Keys sold out; and The Bird Store And More, which was another success in the month of December 2016.

The subtitle of this book is, “Christmas Unlocked.” The accurate ancient history of Christmas and holiday traditions will be very enlightening for all who have an interest in this particular holiday, and wish to know how the holiday’s customs and popular traditions really got its start.

back-cover-copyPoignant to today’s critical times of a resurgence of retro-racism, one of the themes of Mystery of the Sturbridge Keys is, There is only one race, the human race.

Brie will remain the female protagonist of the book, in a world where the role of women in today’s society is challenged all over the world.

The quote by Plutarch is applicable to this book:

“To be ignorant of the lives of the most celebrated men of antiquity is to continue in a state of childhood all our days.”
