E.C. Fisher is an emerging author who was born in Vandenberg, AFB, California. Currently, he happily writes and resides in Florida. From 2007 to 2011, he proudly served in the United States Marine Corps. Three years ago, he was introduced to the writing world after a bout of inspiration drove him to write his very first story. After sharing his work with several people and receiving favorable feedback, he decided to continue treading on the creative path of storytelling. When he doesn’t have a pen in hand, you can find him at the bowling alley getting strikes or at home reading fantastical books.
What if the Bible was a con devised by none other than Lucifer himself? What if The Rapture came, and it was a trick? In E.C. Fisher’s biblical thriller The Deceived, it is the devil who is behind religion, and everyone from Adam and Eve on up are in the thrall of his lies. But as the End of Days play out of Earth—a ploy designed by Lucifer to give the world to his followers—archangel Michael is sent down to earth from heaven, where he must battle the devil in order to save God’s children—not to mention the planet itself.
As God lays dying in heaven, and Lucifer kidnaps Michael’s soulmate, Ari-el—Michael must face not only the potential of demons overtaking earth, but the loss of both his father and one true love. Armed with the Sword of the Spirit, which was forged from God’s own powerful wings, Michael sets to destroy the Antichrist, and thereby bring an end to the deadly masquerade that is Lucifer’s religion.
Written with the verve of a contemporary adventure fantasy and the deep, complex knowledge and understanding of a religious thriller, The Deceived is a harrowing tale that reflects the rifts and tensions of our modern political moment. This is the story of Revelations that you do not know, but that you will not be able to put down.

JFK and the End of America is the culmination of my 50 years of research into the Kennedy assassination. The book makes the case that Lee Harvey Oswald did not kill the president. Rather, an elaborate plot, concocted and executed by a sinister, covert cabal, took Kennedy’s life. The plotters who stood to gain the most from JFK’s death—Lyndon Johnson and Allen Dulles—were abetted by powerful interests in government, business, and the military. Kennedy was moving America toward a permanent peace state, threatening the national security/military establishment whose existence is dependent on a permanent war state. Since 1963, we have been at war or under a threat of war, spending nearly six of every ten tax dollars on defense. The book draws a straight line from Dallas to the political and cultural divide which afflicts us today. JFK and the End of America is my first work of non-fiction.

Hi, I’m Lydia! After 15 years of struggling with depression and anxiety, I decided to write a book so I could help others who might be going through the same thing. This book is meant to help its reader become more mindful of their negative thoughts , feelings and how they react to stressful situations. It highlights ways in which they can practice self-love, self-care, self-compassion and take back control of their minds so they can start to live happier lives while overcoming their anxiety and depression symptoms.
My motto is “Live full happy and healthy life! It is possible!”. This is possible because there is everything you need. And it is really possible, even for the most fallen and most deeply unhappy people. Over the past 15 years, this shows my life and professional experience. Being a successful student at a prestigious chemical university, I fell into alcoholism and drug addiction. Having lost everything – the university, my beloved girl, my health, I was left alone. I stayed One on one with emptiness and disappointment, tuberculosis and hepatitis C. In 2002, I found a way out. The way out of the unhappy life and emptiness. This exit was given to me by Jesus Christ. Since that time, I have devoted myself to live full of happiness and healthy life. It’s possible!
