'Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery'
FIRST PLACE GOLD MEDAL
2013 Exemplary Book
Illumination Book Awards
Medal sponsored by and received from the Jenkins Group. Awarded in 2014
The Illumination Book Award was designed to honor and bring increased recognition to the year's best Christian Education title written and published with a Christian world view.
The Christmas star has been identified using NASA astronomy computer programs. Fifteen years of ancient sky events were electronically surveyed and correlated with symbols, symbolism and interpretations used by sky watchers over 2,000-years ago. Additional significant celestial birth announcements just prior to Christ’s birth have been discovered and verified with additional computer programs. The first spectacular celestial events announced why the first Earth-born God would become the greatest God in the universe. The final Christmas star over Bethlehem was the geographical position marker for the birth place of that God, Jesus Christ. This book has been written for readers of ages 12 - 100.
Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery is a thorough, accurate and spellbinding account of the Christmas Star phenomenon based on numerous NASA computer programs, Biblical passages, historical records, illustrations on ancient monuments, coins and legal seals dating back three thousand or more years. The scientific data with ancient observations and beliefs form a precise explanation of the birth of Jesus and the associated phenomenon of the Christmas Star. This text is a good source of information for the scholar, teacher, and population in general. Recommended highly for Biblical Scholars. H.J. Lewis, M.D.
A very unique book that is quite thought provoking in its analysis and connections. Many have been critical of the Christmas Star mystery as well as the wise men, but Ms. Baron logically shows why this could be one of the strongest arguments "for" the validity of the claim adding yet another proof to the Christian apologists' belt. Well done." Jean Payens o"Paladin," NYC

THE MINDREACHER SERIES
International Paranormal Adventures
'Mindreacher - The Jo'Burg Babies'
From secret corridors under JFK International Airport ...
When a Senator ridiculed The President by telling him he'd have to be a mind reader to find terrorists threatening the USA, The President creates the highly classified Virtual ExtraSensory Perception Experimental Research (VESPER) Project. Housed in forgotten corridors under New York’s JFK International Airport, VESPER Project teams search internationally for strong telepaths to fly over cities & locate terrorists.
A group of babies born in Johannesburg, South Africa 30-years earlier were rumored to have been superior telepaths. Their frightened families hid them around the globe and were forgotten. If they were located and their telepathy were proven, they could form a cadre of telepaths for the VESPER Project. Can they be located? Would they dare join VESPER in a dangerous hunt for terrorists?
A recently wounded and elite military officer, wary of psychics, is assigned as liaison between VESPER and the Office of the Secretary of Defense. To his chagrin, when he identifies a mediocre telepath of a psychic phenomenon and takes her to VESPER, he’s assigned as her bodyguard. Telepath Ana, a teacher and pilot, can pick up senses and thoughts of others over very short distances. Threatened and abused for her telepathic talents as a child, she wants to keep them hidden. To help VESPER in their search for the Jo'Burg mindreachers would expose her skills. Yet recognition in the psychic field would finally bring her respect she desires.
The problem? Terrorists don't want telepaths around. They want Ana eliminated.
Caught between using known military tactics or listening to the advice of a telepath, the U.S. Marine Corps bodyguard must make decisions to succeed in this mind boggling and treacherous mission.
How will the proliferation of anti-American terrorists with their latest nuclear threats be stopped?
The fate of the United States lies in the hands of Ana and her bodyguard.
Females of all ages will be thrilled learning about the innocent, middle-aged, telepathic heroine entangled in the intrigues of the government and her dangerous international search for a mindreacher. Male readers will empathize with the elite U.S. Marine Corps officer assigned to protect a reluctant telepath during death threatening events on land, water and in the air. Everyone will enjoy the humor.
The initial action-packed thriller in the mindreacher series blends current and future technology with paranormal activity. Not yet published, it has already attracted a broad spectrum of followers of all ages. The international and multicultural aspects of the novels heighten the reader's awareness of existing countries, their cultures, religions, and people. New York Gotham Writers workshop readers and others have compared "Mindreacher-The Jo'Burg Project' to a cross between the genres of the Clive Cussler and Indiana Jones.
