Brothers Lost


When international journalist Todd Walters traveled to Pakistan to interview a former member of al-Qaeda, he entered a tangled conspiracy of double agents, suicide bombers and the search for al-Qaeda’s new leader, Ayman al-Zawarhiri. What he wasn’t expecting was to be reunited with the two brothers he was separated from as a child, one now a CIA operative, or to find the mother he was taken from three decades earlier. The tale of “Brothers Lost” begins in a federal prison in Florida, and leads its main characters through Mexico, Singapore and, finally, Pakistan. Available at:

Love Letters from Mama


Sometimes it takes the poetry of fiction to reveal a complex truth. Sometimes the raw simplicity of truth is itself poetic, poignant, and powerful. Ken Anderberg holds no truth back in “Love Letters from Mama,” and sheds a little light on the universal question of who we are, what we become, and why. I started reading out of a curiosity to know on what kind of literary adventure my friend had embarked. I soon found myself turning page after page, captivated by the stark honesty, as I observed this man’s search for identity turn into a discovery of love. You will certainly be moved by the story. You might even by changed by it. But be forewarned. Confronting the fears and demons of childhood is not a task for the timid, and Anderberg is not timid. Available at:

Costa Rica: An Expat’s Tale

CR cover2

During his time in Costa Rica, the author kept a running blog account of my experiences (2bagsandapack.wordpress.com). These accounts were not about being a tourist in Costa Rica; in fact, he hardly visited any typical tourist destinations in the country. The author’s purpose in writing about his experiences was to provide useful information to anyone retiring or moving there, insights that might help others more easily navigate Costa Rican culture and day-to-day activities. This book provides useful, on-the-ground advice and ideas on how to negotiate this Central American country as a resident, not a two-week tourist, and includes numerous photos taken by the author.
