    Picture of me participating in a volleyball game.

    The Wall Street Journal featured these pictures of me in 2016 being an active volleyball player at age 81 and also having a daily exercise routine that included Zumba dancing, stretching and toning, weight lifting, running, and helping other seniors develop a consistent exercise program. My theme was that every adult needs to exercise daily, keep their minds actively challenged, and remain socially active by helping those around them.

    Photo with Queen Elizabeth

    In 1991, Queen Elizabeth of England visited the United States and was entertained at a dinner by Texas Governor Ann Richards at the Governor’s Mansion.  Governor Richards invited me to attend because I had convinced her in 1990 to create a task force of environmental, business, and  state agency leaders to work together, rather than as adversaries, to generate both environmental excellence and strong economic growth. No other state had tried to do this. As an executive in a large chemical company, I  played a major role in the dramatic success of this task force. Governor Richards and I continued to cooperate together to create programs that benefitted everyone in the state, even though she was a Liberal Democrat and I was a Moderate Republican.

Rob the Vatican

The Vatican City --- the smallest country in the world, home to the leader of the Catholic Church and the stronghold for most of the faithful; the habitat of a significant number of treasures that have aged to be almost untouchable; perhaps uniquely surreal; one of the most secured places in the world, until now… Robert Gallant, through tireless years of research and dialogues with the minds behind historical concepts in Rome, presents his latest thriller, Rob the Vatican --- a novel that morphs the Città del Vaticano into the center of what could be the greatest heist in history. While this tiny state is known for being impervious, Gallant opens his readers’ eyes into the possibility of the impossible --- a concept most often taught within the walls of this faithful religion.

'God's Domain' takes Chesney Barrett, Travis Weld on a potentially world-changing mission'

 

MIDLAND, Mich. - Travis Weld, leader of a clandestine government team, reaches out once more to environmental graduate student Chesney Barrett in the fourth book of Robert Gallant's suspense thriller series featuring the two characters. This time, Travis needs Chesney's skills to help rescue a brilliant archaeologist, David Phillips, from guerillas in the Yucatan.

 

The mission plunges Chesney into a dangerous and complex quest for the sacred site of Viracocha, the legendary god. To reach God's Domain, Chesney and David must decipher the clues and face a duplicitous ally and ruthless military commander on a journey that has the potential to change the world forever.

 

Gallant says he was inspired by "Reading a series of articles in National Geographic about ancient South American cultures and the Nazca Lines in Peru. I then spent several years researching Mexican and South American cultures to develop the scenario for the novel."

 

"Sometimes what we do can create a much more dangerous problem than we expected," Gallant says. "People and nations sometimes use their personal concept of God to justify punishing and controlling others."

Alpha and Omega

Beautiful environmental graduate student Chesney Barrett previously helped clandestine government agent Travis Weld locate and destroy a drug operation in the Louisiana swamps. Her ability to decipher clues that lead to complex criminal plots, and maneuver her way through dangerous confrontations led Weld to use her again to help track down the owner of a Russian suitcase-sized nuclear bomb and again to locate the scientist offering to sell a deadly new virus.

 

Chesney is now utilizing her swimming expertise to help the forestry service gather environmental samples from the rivers in the Smoky Mountain National Park. When she finds a dead man obviously killed by a large animal, she hustles downstream to retrieve her boat so she can take the body into the Forestry Service Center. But when she returns, the body is gone. The tracks indicate animals that are not normally in these forests have taken the body and someone is with the animals. None of this makes sense. Who is the dead man? Who is the person who somehow controls the animals? What are they doing in this forest? Trying to answer these questions plunges Chesney into a deadly confrontation that rapidly escalates into a battle for who will control a unique new weapon. This time, it is Chesney who will ask Travis Weld for help.
