Tweets And Team Players:

Here are two recent tweets I received on my Twitter page that I don’t look at very often. Here are two recent tweets by Trump:

1)Ed Gillespie will be a great Governor of Virginia. His opponent doesn’t even show up to meetings/work, and will be VERY weak on crime!
2)Ed Gillespie will turn the really bad Virginia economy #’s around, and fast. Strong on crime, he might even save our great statues/heritage!
What is wrong with either one of these tweets?

As far as the leading Republicans go, I am shocked that they don’t act like team players and vote Republican just because Trump is the current Republican President. That is what I said to Senator McCain. Of course in this day and age even real team players such as sports players can’t even pull it together and stand for the national anthem. If it were up to me, I’d fire the lot of them. At least the military has to pull together like a team. Always did. Goes back 1000’s of years.

Colonel Sir Edward Ware was in His Majesty’s Armed Forces. He had to defer to his Prime Minister even though he did not agree with him. In a classic scene of Captive at the Berghof, Edward and his wife, Dora, Lady Ware, are paying a visit to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. In 1938 the Prime Minister tells Edward when he is going to visit Hitler at the Berghof that Great Britain wants peace at any cost. Edward says that he will have to remember that —- peace at any cost.

Edward must work underground with Churchill to fight the Nazis until Churchill can become Prime Minister in 1940. Then Edward and his causes can come out into the open during the Second World War. Until then he must be a team player with a stiff upper lip.

New Cover For Murder at Hamlet’s Castle:

What do you think of the brand new cover for Murder at Hamlet’s Castle? You can find it on the book page on the website After narrowly escaping the von Wessels, Hitler’s chief spies, in Santa Fe while on leave from Mid East Quarters in Cairo, Edward and Dora don’t know where to go next and where to hide the Lawrence maps, key to world domination. They have just been watching a production of Hamlet when they get a note from Winston Churchill. He says that he and Clemmie got locked in the dungeon of Hamlet’s Castle in Helsingor, Denmark. It was where the Danish army used to be billeted in the Middle Ages. They had to raise Hamlet’s ghost screaming to be let out. It just occurred to Winston it would be a perfect location to hide the much sought after military maps. No one would ever suspect they were there — and if they did they would never be able to escape with their lives let alone the prize that Hitler has been seeking for years.

But after a huge chase scene to get away from states they meet unexpected obstacles in the castle in 1934. The mistress who keeps the place up turns out to be the perfect Nazi spy in cahoots with Hitler and the von Wessels. Once again they need to escape. But this time they meet an unexpected ally in the famous Dane himself, Shakespeare’s most famous character. They uncover Hamlet’s secret notebooks that tell them just what they need to know. Others were cornered in this castle long ago. Hamlet tells them how he escaped in a tale that upsets all previous notions of the man, his character, and his fate.
Murder at Hamlet’s Castle by Dora Benley will be published soon by Cheops Books LLC.

Dora Benley, the World Traveler:
Dora Benley had no idea when she set out on our journey with her parents on May 1, 1915 to England that she was embarking on a lifetime of travel. The young woman at that time was a college student at Bryn Mawr College for young women and had never been abroad before. She had probably not been much of anywhere except Pennsylvania, driving between her native haunts of Pittsburgh where she grew up to Philadelphia where she was attending school and where her parents had another estate in the King of Prussia area called Maymont.
Dora Benley experienced a rough and sudden indoctrination into the world of travel. She embarked on the Lusitania in Manhattan on May 1, 1915. A German torpedo sank it on May 7, 1915 off the coast of Ireland. Dora swore to get revenge on the Germans who sank her ship and killed some of her friends. She joined forces with Edward Ware and later married him, becoming Lady Ware. In the cause of fighting Germans and keeping the Lawrence maps, key to world domination, away from them she traveled to England, Germany, Italy, France, Gibraltar, Chicago, Yellowstone, the Petrified Forest, Santa Fe, San Diego, the Atlantic Provinces of Canada, Scotland, Denmark, and more places than you can count. She kept a wardrobe and suitcase packed at the Savoy Hotel in London just because she never knew where she and her husband, the Colonel, were going to be sent next as spies in the service of Winston Churchill.
The best way to appreciate Dora Benley and her travel itinerary is to read the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series starting with Key to Lawrence Special Edition and continuing with 1935 Plot, Dark Horse, and other novels yet to be published.

The hero of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series, Edward Ware, meets T.E. Lawrence, the Oxfordian and assistant to Leonard Woolley, at the excavation at Carchemish in Turkey during the summer of 1914. Even then Lawrence is busy at work drawing military maps for the government of Great Britain. The Kaiser is sending spies into the camp at Carchemish to steal the maps.
From that point on Edward and Lawrence are a pair. It is the chief relationship of the series that dictates the plot. Edward devotes his life to defending the maps though it costs him personal tragedy and hardship for decades. He puts the welfare of Great Britain first.
Edward serves as adjutant to T. E. Lawrence during the Great War during the Arab Revolt. He is present at most of Lawrence of Arabia’s famous victories including the final one at Damascus that causes the Ottomans to surrender and seek peace at the end of the Great War.
After the Paris Peace Conference in which T. E. Lawrence plays a role, Edward goes to Cairo to help Churchill and T. E. Lawrence divide up the Middle East. From there on Edward and Churchill devote themselves to finding a proper hiding place for the maps.
The Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series would not be the same without T. E. Lawrence, or Lawrence of Arabia.

Edward and Dora are on their way from New York Harbor all the way to Yellowstone National Park. At the last minute before they turn off the Lincoln Highway to make their way for the East Entrance to the national park, they stop for lunch at a diner. The approaches them with a message delivered the day before by telegraph. It is from Churchill back in London. How did he know they would stop there? There was no other place for miles around, and the backbencher was banking on it.
The Churchill agent with whom they are to rendezvous in the park was diverted suddenly south by Hitler’s spies, Helga and Herr von Wessel, who are chasing them across the country. The agent arrived in the wilds of northern Arizona, hundreds of miles from here. He tried to pick the most obscured location imaginable. They are now to rendezvous with him at a place called the Painted Desert Inn in the northern part of Petrified Forest National Monument right off Route 66.
What will they find in the Petrified Forest at the Painted Desert Inn? Who is lurking there in wait for them? Dora and Edward are about to find out as they pursue this unexpected adventure in the upcoming Cheops Books LLC thriller Old Faithful Plot.

Prime Minister May is making her first visit to the United States to visit President Donald Trump who was inaugurated only one week ago today. She made a speech to a Pennsylvania audience about the “special relationship” between America and Britain which began one hundred years ago this year in 1917. That was the year that the United States under Woodrow Wilson entered the First World War on the side of Britain to fight the Germans. They did it again during World War 2, reinforcing and cementing the relationship.
This very real history is mirrored in the relationship of the hero and heroine of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series, Dora Benley, an American heiress, and Colonel Sir Edward Ware, a British freedom fighter who spied for Churchill and fought the Germans in two world wars. They meet the day after the sinking of the Lusitania. Dora was on the doomed ship and rowed ashore with her family, vowing revenge on the Germans. Edward was already involved in a map plot against the German High Command and the Kaiser. They formed an alliance which later became a marriage to fight the Germans together. It is the foundation relationship of the whole series just as May claimed that the US Britain special relationship was the foundation of the world in the twenty-first century.

Malcolm Blair Robinson has written a wonderful blog today summing up the Trump experience this past weekend with the inauguration and the new move to meet with the new PM, May, this coming week. We have the next move toward an American/British alliance, this time an economic one, that features and emphasized the “special relationship”. Just this past Friday, after all, Churchill’s bust was restored to the Oval Office after being banished for the past eight years.
This is noteworthy for Cheops Books, LLC as it continues to publish the Edward Ware Thrillers At War series. The relationship between Edward and Dora Ware, the chief couple of the thriller series, is a British/American relationship. Dora’s father is a Robber Baron who funds Edward’s spying activities and all sorts of diplomatic dinner, banquets, and balls. And the chief political relationship of the series is between Edward, the spy, and Churchill, the spymaster. And Churchill was half American. Churchill’s idea of drawing America into the Second World War was what saved Britain. And right now a deal with Trump may well save May and Brexit.
