These Are My Published Books To Date

Last week I published my third volume of my “Walking On Dawes Collection”
This collection shows how no matter how fantastic you believe ganglife to be, Miss Karma and her brother, Mr. Chaos always wins in the end.

Today I published “Unkz, A Canadian Cosmonaut” the fourth and final volume of my “Walk With Dann Collection”.

The last chapter of my life, or as I should say, my various lives.

I pray that my honesty and confessions will touch at least one soul and prevent them from making the wrong choices I have made.

All my works are available at https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B078JNX5WV

I write my books for me.

I tell my stories for my readers.

I am not sure if my works are badly written good stories or well written bad stories.

Not too sure I care either way. I do care that, in my “Walk With Dann Collection”, I am telling my life as brutally truthful as possible. In shame and in honour.

I do care that my ‘stand alone’ books, such as “The Last Canadian Cosmonaut” touch your heart.

I pray that my other collection, “Walking On Dawes”, shows that the gang life, although often ‘exciting’, leads only to karma biting your buttocks.”

“Unkz, A Canadian Cosmonaut”

Volume 4 – Walk With Dann Collection

Unkz - A Canadian Cosmonaut

There are deeply complicated thoughts that haunt you, when you well know you are insane.

Insane by their standard.

I believe I am just Dann, just as I am.

I am not like others.

I am not them.

I am me.

Yet, there are multiple “me’s”.

And they are all I can or should be.

As the previous confessions of my life told within my first work, “Damaged, tells, I am, ‘broken

Began at birth.

Blue baby.

Unplanned child.

Unwanted but wanted.

And left to die before I had lived.

Only my deepest consciousness knows what I have experienced.

To keep my spirit alive my mind vaulted those days far in the depths of the encrypted memories.

Never to be re-lived.

Never to scar my soul once more.

Now, I am sixty-one years old and it is time for me to end this “Walk With Dann Collection” with this, my final volume.

To give closure to the three previous quarters of my numerous lives.

I am not soon to ascend.

But, my Walk With Dann Collection must contain a sincere final volume of my most innermost beliefs and thoughts.

For I cannot author them after I reach my own personal concept of Valhalla.

A final confession of both my rights and my wrongs.

I will utter exact truths, I will hold no quarter from exposing who I have become in the final quarter of a Canadian Cosmonaut’s life.

My life has been no different than yours.

My strife, my loves, my sorrows, my learning and my battlefield are far different than yours.

I present to you ………….

“Unkz, A Canadian Cosmonaut”

So, come, Walk With Dann.

THE LAST CANADIAN COSMONAUT”

(My first ‘standalone book‘ and my personal favorite.)

TLCC (2)

THE LAST CANADIAN COSMONAUT”

Here are the opening pages

The smell of the ocean danced on my nostrils as I walked, slipping and sliding, across the flats. My eyes darting to and fro, carefully scanning ahead for sink holes.

I should have been walking the other direction. Towards the junior high school. Towards hippie teachers trying to teach me of science, faith and nature.

I could hear the train in the distance. Pulling it’s tonnage of sugar cane around the bend to the refinery.

The tug boats crested the horizon. Their wake spewing behind them as they pushed against the mighty tanker so as to slow it’s unforgiving momentum. Lest it run ashore.

The shore. My foster home was there. High up the hill. It’s windows like two large eyes, taunting me with guilt.“Go to school“, they seemed to say.

I can’t”, my reply.”

You Can’t See Me”

Walking On Dawes Collection

Volume 2

This is a portrait of a broken man living a broken life in a broken world where family and friendship are one and the same.

Where wrong choices can lead to lifelong regrets. Haunting the very soul and stabbing the heart daily to remind you of the penalties of actions.

Where a man can be all alone and un-noticed in a crowded room.

Where sadness shadows joy and joy masks sadness.

This is the life of one man on one street in one city.”

Walking On Dawes Collection”

Volume 3”

Life can be unfair. It can be brutal.

Especially for an inner city young man growing up in the projects.

This is a tale of such a man. A man who walked many paths. Who made choices – good and bad. Who experienced love, hate, joy and sadness and bears the scars to show their result.

A man who chose the path of gang life over grade school classes. A man who’s rocking horse was a Harley Davidson. His playground was the streets. His graduation was held in a Federal Penitentiary.

A man who found remorse and regrets haunting him throughout his adulthood.

A man who wanted out.

A man who wished for peace in his soul and calmness in his heart.

His name,

JUST SAYING …..

Victims of the media placing subliminal thoughts in their already pubescent turmoil as they grow into adults and the hormones are stronger then their sensibility. Hard when you have a bunch of adults asking if they feel like a boy or girl or whatever the other three things are.

On another note,

“Why does it hurt when I pee?”

Upper and middle class well to do people have no concept whatsoever as to what the average person goes through just to survive.

I live in Toronto, we have more people than any other city in Canada, show me where these people are speaking up about Canadian politics – they will gather in flocks to protest American politics, but not for our problems.

Facebook protests are as useless as tits on a bull. Where are these people speaking out? Instagram? Twitter? Tim Horton’s?

Most are still trying to figure out why we have a Prime Minister and a President because no one has taught them that Canada and the U.S. are two separate countries.

For the love of the Creators, they voted in a man because he has nice hair and legalized pot.

The world is boxed, society lives in a “Don’t hurt my feelings” world – it will eventually end bad.

Trudeau is destroying Canadian values, our Court systems are ancient and now we think there are more than two sexes.

Here is a picture of the Supreme Court of Canada Judges with their families …

I won’t even start about how insane our education system is.

I shake my head all the time.

The average person on the street are not even aware that Canada and the U.S. are two separate countries.

We have our downtown core filled with elderly, homeless and mentally damaged people living on the boiling hot concrete – stroll through the valleys, off the glamorized bike paths and see how many tents there are.

MEANWHILE, WE ARE GOING TO AND HAVE BEEN PUTTING “ILLEGAL” BORDER CROSSERS IN HOTELS. THEY HAVE ALREADY FILLED UP OUR SHELTERS AND HOSTELS.

Banning guns is a token band-aid media treat to show the public that politicians are maybe listening.

Never met a gang-banger in my life that applied for a carry licence.

Third Strike Law, no plea bargaining, one sentence for murder, no bail for any weapons and stop making Canadian prisons like Boy Scout camps.

I did time in old school Dorchester in the 70’s – never went back. It was a prison, not a Holiday Inn.

We live in such a delusional time where we worry more about hurting feelings or making prisoners “comfortable”, where the media spends more time discussing the heart ache of a murderers family than the distraught felt by the 15 victim families.

You cannot tell me about the criminal element and what will work – I’ve spent 60 years dealing with such. I have seen and done things that no human should have did or even witnessed.

Upper and middle class well to do people have no concept whatsoever as to what the average person goes through just to survive. Most of us survive on $18,000 a year of which $11,000 or more goes for rent. You Liberal supporters spend that on beer.

Read my books.

BUT, MOST OF ALL DON’T BELIEVE WHAT FACEBOOK AND THE GOVERNMENT OR MEDIA TELL YOU – THEY HAVE A FAR DIFFERENT AGENDA. TO KEEP CERTAIN PEOPLE IN POWER AND THEIR PORTFOLIOS PLUMP.

Canada needs to wake the frack up and people need to get off their fat asses on Election Day and vote. But, they are too busy bitching on Social Media.

Time To Reclaim Toronto not just To Reclaim Toronto’s Previous Motto, “TORONTO, THE GOOD”

20180520_114114-1286531635.jpg

No sense me adding the current news links … all the same. Since I published this there has been multiple shootings and “no suspects”.

VERY SAD WHAT TORONTO HAS BECOME.

I was writing the blog below about Toronto having three murders in less than a day and BAM!!!!

This news pops up .. Just happened ……

Quoted from Toronto.citynews.ca

“Toronto police say four people have been injured, one man seriously after a shooting near Kensington Market.

Officers were called to the scene after there were reports of a large amount of gunfire at Augusta Avenue and College Street just after 10:30 p.m.

Police say three victims were found suffering from gunshot wounds

EMS tells CityNews they transported four patients, one man in his 30s with serious life-threatening injuries to a trauma centre and a second person to local hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. Two other victims suffered minor injuries

Four people were reportedly seen fleeing the scene and police are currently looking for suspects.”

What is wrong with everyone???

I am just going to vent on you because I really am at a loss as to what to say or where to begin.

These puke, idiot, sub-human wannabe notorious misled YouTube gangstas are running wild in our city.

Instead of protesting Trump in our downtown core, why don’t we all start DEMANDING a change to Canada’s antiquated weapon and firearm laws.

I give big kudos to Toronto’s present and very good Mayor, John Tory.

I agree wholeheartedly that the bail system is far too lax.

As I stated in this blog today …

Kudos to Toronto’s Best Mayor, John Tory

Big kudos to Toronto’s best mayor, @JohnTory – I totally agree that it is time to look at how our Justice and Court systems hand out bail so damn easily to repeat offenders. Caught with a weapon? Sit and wait for trial.
#JohnTory #LightHousedannverner

Check out @LightHouseDann’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/LightHouseDann/status/1013549940797296640?s=09

I want my old city back. Not a city where everytime a black SUV with tinted windows stops near you, so does your heart.

Believe it or not, but there was a time not so long ago our beloved city’s motto was,

“TORONTO,THE GOOD”

When Is Canada Going To Strengthen It’s Gun Laws

Again today some asshole gangster shot THREE people in broad daylight at one of the busiest intersections in downtown Toronto.

May I add that they did so with little regard for the innocent bystanders.

Meanwhile on the west side of our once “good” city another teenager was found shot. He lays in a hospital in serious but stable condition.

MAKES ME FRACKING SICK!!!

WHAT BOTHERS ME THE MOST IS THAT IF THEY EVEN CATCH THESE GOOFS, THEY WILL DEFINITELY OBTAIN BAIL – THE VICTIMS WON’T HAVE BAIL.

I was/am a gangster most my life and those who read my books or know me know that I have done some horrible things in my younger years.

The sentence I served, albeit “years”, was a slap on the wrist.

And even if they catch these GOOFS, they will plead out to lesser charges, be treated like heros in jail and get their gangster status upgraded.

That’s after they tie up the Courts for years.

I personally know such type of GOOFS who have been out on bail for three years after being caught with full automatic weapons, numerous weapons, loaded with armour piercing shells, Heroin, Meth, Crack Cocaine and body armour. All in plain sight of their children.

They are still walking the street since November 2015!!!!

The Canadian people have to start speaking up!!!!!!

Canada needs a three strike law!

Canada needs to have stiffer gang Laws and sentences!

Canada needs to have a minimum ten year sentence for using any weapon, gun, knives, baseball bat, any item used to harm another person.

BUT, THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN IN A COUNTRY WHERE OUR LEADER WAS VOTED IN FOR HIS PROMISE TO LEGALIZE POT AND HAD NICE HAIR.

WHERE WE HAVE HUNDREDS SHOW UP TO PROTEST THE LEADER OF OUR NEIGHBOURING COUNTRY AND NO ONE PROTESTING OUR OWN USELESS ASSHOLE OF A LEADER.

SOCIETY HAS LOST TOUCH WITH HUMANITY.

SOON HUMANITY WILL LOSE TOUCH WITH SOCIETY.

OUR YOUTH ARE BEING RAISED BY ELECTRONICS AND ADMIRING GUN TOTING ‘YOUTUBE’ RAP STARS.

WE ARE NOW ON OUR FOURTH GENERATION OF “KIDS RAISING KIDS”.

OUR SCHOOLS NO LONGER TEACH CURSIVE WRITING. NO SCHOOLS TEACH MORALS, RATHER THEY ADD TO THE MORAL DECAY OF HUMANITY.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS HAVE REMOVED CHRISTIAN PRAYERS, BUT OTHER RELIGIONS HAVE THEIRS.

AND OUR LAWS AND COURTS AND PRISON SYSTEMS ARE THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WORLD.

OUR PRISONS ARE MORE OF A HOLIDAY GETAWAY FOR THESE PUKES.

BUT, NO ONE CARES. THEY ARE ALL TOO BUSY TEACHING OUR YOUTH THAT THERE ARE MORE THAN TWO GENDERS AND IF SOMEONE HURTS YOUR FEELINGS THEY WILL GET MORE SEVERELY PUNISHED THEN A SAGGY PANT, MUMBLING, GOOF,GUN USING GANGSTER.

THERE HAS BEEN MANY GUN RELATED CRIMES THIS YEAR AND I SUSPECT THAT WE WILL BREAK ALL RECORDS FOR GUN OFFENCES BY THE TIME 2018 ENDS.

BUT, WHO CARES? WE CAN SMOKE POT WHILE DANCING ON RAINBOW CROSSWALKS WHILE STEPPING OVER THE MANY CITIZENS SLEEPING ON OUR SIDEWALKS BECAUSE THE REFUGEES HAVE FILLED OUR SHELTERS.

I am ashamed of what we as a “people” have become ……

Update on the below mentioned shooting .. to popular and talented rap artists succumbed to their injuries. The female victim is still in “stable” condition.

Quoted from CBC News

“Toronto rappers Smoke Dawg and Koba Prime have been identified as the victims killed in a triple shooting Saturday evening that also left a woman with serious injuries.
Smoke Dawg, 21, whose real name is Jahvante Smart, had ties to Toronto rapper Drake and toured with him in Europe last year.
Koba Prime, 28, whose real name is Ernest “Kosi” Modekwe, was part of rap group Prime.
The pair collaborated as part of the larger rap collective Full Circle.”

It is always the talented rap/hip-hop artists that get targeted by these “YouTube Gangsta” idiots who are living in a dream world.
Because they can’t understand the strength and courage.
A few hours after these shootings a stabbing murder of a youth takes place in the East end.
Three murders and one attempted in less than twenty-four hours.

Walking With Dann Explained

Allow me to take you on a journey within the twisted churning void of my inner self.

This is why I started blogging all those years ago. I will always blog.

I will always have an opinion or thought and I take pride in my beliefs.

Blogging brought me to fulfill my life long desire to put my lives out there. For my existence has been very unique. I am a true Canadian Cosmonaut.

Within these pages may you find the essence that is me – may I guide you through the tunnels of my thoughts and bath you in the radiant glow of my opinion.

I offer you ‘Dann’ just as I am..

Many ask me why l write.

I write my books for me.

I tell my stories for my readers.”

I am not sure if my works are badly written good stories or well written bad stories.

Not too sure if I care either way.

I do care that, in my “Walk With Dann Collection”, I am telling my life as brutally and truthful as possible via a fictional perspective.

In shame and in honour.

The first book of the “Walk With Dann Collection” was the very first book I actually wrote. I left all the misspells and grammar errors in on purpose. As I also did with the formatting and editing errors.

I did this so the reader would see that life is full of mistakes and my life began “DAMAGED”.

As the volumes that followed show, I learned as I wrote and I wrote as I learned. Now as I work on various projects I can say that I am an ‘Author’. And I do so with pride.

I care that my ‘stand alone’ books, such as “The Last Canadian Cosmonaut” touch your heart. It, too, is a fictional telling of a past life experience. An experience that can not be duplicated.

I pray that my other collection, “Walking On Dawes Collection”, shows that gang life, although often ‘exciting’, leads only to karma biting your buttocks.

Beginning to read the tales you may believe I am glorifying gang life style, I assure you that by the end of each volume you will understand the logic behind my message.

A synopsis of my “Walk With Dann Collection”:

My Walk With Dann Collection, Volumes 1, 2 & 3

Damaged” is my first book.

Like me, it is raw and full of mistakes.

I have left it “unedited” as life has left me.

LightHouse Dann Verner

Volume 1, “DAMAGED” takes you on a Walk from my birth till I meet my second wife.

It is rough, crude in fact, numerous format conversion errors.

I left It raw on purpose as a testament to the honesty of my words and work.

It contains humour, murder, explosions and motorcycles.

It may or may not be fictional or may even be non-fictional.

LightHouse Dann Verner

The second volume, ‘BANE’, Walks you through my middle years and three decades of marriage.

It does not contain the excitement of it’s predecessor.

It contains much more.

It is a fictional/non-fictional tale of how many different ‘Walks’ we take in our lifetimes.

It tells of love, hate, health, sickness, richman, poorman, ice creams and life screams

It begins to show you who I was and who I was becoming.

“No willful wrongdoing ever escapes Miss Karma or Her Brother Chaos.”

LightHouse Dann Verner

My third volume, “BOON” Walks you deep into my fictional/non-fictional personal life of trials and tribulations. My uniquely twisted none the norm perception of my various realities.

It is a depiction of life as lived. A no-hold barred account of everyday life in an everyday low-income Canadian home. You will laugh, you may cry at points, you WILL be taking a true “WALK WITH DANN”.

“I will run through your veins like a fish in the sea.”

(Quoted From Uncle Kracker’s song ‘Follow Me’)

LightHouse Dann Verner

I am currently writing the final volume of the four volume Walk With Dann Collection.

“UNKZ, A Canadian Cosmonaut”

Coming August 2018

My first ‘standalone book’.

My personal favourite.

I thoroughly enjoyed the emotional ‘Walk’ while writing it and relieving that period of my life and that time of history.

The calmest years of my chaotic lives.

Below is a tidbit of the volume to whet your appetite

LightHouse Dann Verner

“A fictional journey of a hippie on a Harley exploring the times.”

THE LAST CANADIAN COSMONAUT”

The smell of the ocean danced on my nostrils as I walked, slipping and sliding, across the flats. My eyes darting to and fro, carefully scanning ahead for sink holes.

I should have been walking the other direction. Towards the junior high school. Towards hippie teachers trying to teach me of science, faith and nature.

I could hear the train in the distance. Pulling it’s tonnage of sugar cane around the bend to the refinery.

The tug boats crested the horizon. Their wake spewing behind them as they pushed against the mighty tanker so as to slow it’s unforgiving momentum. Lest it run ashore.

The shore. My foster home was there. High up the hill. It’s windows like two large eyes, taunting me with guilt.“Go to school“, they seemed to say.

I can’t“, my reply.

A brief synopsis of my “Walking On Dawes Collection

The first volume of the

Walking On Dawes Collection”

I WANT TO BE ‘FLOKI’”

This is a tale of a family who live their lives within the government projects and gang life.

Except ‘Little Ray’. He and his family want him to break the cycle and live a normal life.

There is tragedy, laughter and most of all ‘insight’ within. A fictional tale that is also non-fictional.

A family who grew up in the projects of Toronto. That was their reality and there was nothing wrong with it, for everyone lives in a neighborhood. Only the name and addresses are different.

The first “WALK” of a ungoing inter-connected Collection of fictional “Walks On Dawes”.

The raw and naked truths from an experienced eye and soul of a Canadian Cosmonaut.

A tale of the original “URBAN VIKINGS.”

LightHouse Dann Verner

“Walking On Dawes – Volume 2”

“YOU CAN’T SEE ME”

“You Can’t See Me” – Walking On Dawes Collection – Volume 2

“This is a portrait of a broken man living a broken life in a broken world where family and friendship are one and the same.”

A man who was once “DAMAGED” but now was merely broken.

Where wrong choices can lead to lifelong regrets. Haunting the very soul and stabbing the heart daily to remind you of the penalties of actions.

Where a man can be all alone and un-noticed in a crowded room.

Where sadness shadows joy and joy masks sadness.

Where happiness and good times balance out with sadness and tragedy.

This is the life of one man and his family, on one street in one city.

A man who let his darkness blind his Light.

A tale that will surprise you at the end.

LightHouse Dann Verner

“Walking On Dawes Collection” – Volume 3

“6315”

Coming July 2018

As The Chapters Turn, So Does The Days Of My Life

If you were to compare my first book “DAMAGED” to my soon to be published, “6315”, the third volume of my Walking On Dawes Collection, I am positive you would see a large difference in all aspects of my books.

My “Walk With Dann Collection” first three volumes are full of mistakes.

MISTAKES AND ERRORS LEFT IN ON PURPOSE. Because, firstly, my life isn’t perfect, never has been.

Secondly, I have never wrote, edited, designed and published a book in my life.

You will see improvements in each new book as I learn more from mistakes. Experience is the key to successfully accomplishing a goal of any type.

I had worked as an assistant editor at a law magazine many moons ago.

I now have seven books published.

I am currently sixty percent complete of the two I have been working on the past few months.

The fourth and final volume of my Walk With Dann Collection. “Unkz, A Canadian Cosmonaut.”

The fictional autobiography of maybe me or maybe not.

And the before mentioned “6315”. The third ‘Walk’ in my on-going “Walking On Dawes Collection”.

A common problem for writers is the cursed ‘Writer’s Block’.

I combat the ‘Block’ by writing two or more works at the same time.

Today I started another series I’ve titled, “URBAN VIKINGS”. A different twist on living in this age and this modern society. What it takes to survive from childhood to adult in the concrete metropolis of millions.

Hopefully the first volume will be available by the fall of 2018.

STAY TUNED FOR THE SOON TO BE RELEASED

“6315”

America’s Got Talent “Courtney Hadwin”

This thirteen year old shy youth blew my mind when she started singing.

In this world where main stream music is quite literally mindless garbage promoting sex and thug life it is so refreshing to see a true talented artist like Courtney Hadwin.

I literally cried happy tears for this “Singer” – as did almost everyone in the audience.

SHE BROUGHT THE HOUSE TO A STANDING OVATION!!!!!

And a well deserved one at that.

If this performer doesn’t win this year, then I will never understand.

Like Howie Mandel said she is “not from this era”.

I totally agree – she is from the NEXT era of entertainment. Where artists actually perform and have talent.

@Courtney Hadwin – you are a modern day Janis Joplin, a talent from deep within your soul.

I was so pleased to have seen your performance – especially since I never watch the show.

Now I am glad I watched it last evening.

Blessings to you and I will pray the right label signs you – which I believe is a definite no matter what outcome happens on the live show.

Never stop following your dream.

Never stop just being “you”.

Blessings ♡♡♡♡

Give her a listen, a like, heck, give her ten likes. The world needs to encourage more talents like hers. Never mind the mindless garbage mainstream music has become.

It is rough, crude in fact, numerous format conversion errors.

I left It raw on purpose as a testament to the honesty of my words and work.

It contains humour, murder, explosions and motorcycles.

It may or may not be fictional or may even be non-fictional.

The second volume, ‘BANE’, Walks you through my middle years and three decades of marriage.

It does not contain the excitement of it’s predecessor.

It begins to show you who I was and who I was becoming.

 

 

My third volume, “BOON” Walks you deep into my personal life of trials and tribulations and my uniquely twisted none the norm perception of my realty.

So, come, Walk With Dann.

And my first ‘standalone book‘, my personal favourite,

A fictional journey of a hippie on a Harley exploring the times.

THE LAST CANADIAN COSMONAUT”

The smell of the ocean danced on my nostrils as I walked, slipping and sliding, across the flats. My eyes darting to and fro, carefully scanning ahead for sink holes.

I should have been walking the other direction. Towards the junior high school. Towards hippie teachers trying to teach me of science, faith and nature.

I could hear the train in the distance. Pulling it’s tonnage of sugar cane around the bend to the refinery.

The tug boats crested the horizon. Their wake spewing behind them as they pushed against the mighty tanker so as to slow it’s unforgiving momentum. Lest it run ashore.

The shore. My foster home was there. High up the hill. It’s windows like two large eyes, taunting me with guilt.“Go to school“, they seemed to say.

I can’t“, my reply.

And here lays a brief synopsis of my “Walking On Dawes Collection

 

The first volume of the

Walking On Dawes Collection”

I WANT TO BE ‘FLOKI’”

“This is a tale of a family who live their lives within the gang life. Except Little Ray. He and his family want him to break the cycle and live a normal life.”

There is tragedy, laughter and most of all ‘insight’ within.

So come with us as we

Walk On Dawes.”

 

“You Can’t See Me”

Walking On Dawes Collection

Volume 2

This is a portrait of a broken man living a broken life in a broken world where family and friendship are one and the same.

Where wrong choices can lead to lifelong regrets. Haunting the very soul and stabbing the heart daily to remind you of the penalties of actions.

Where a man can be all alone and un-noticed in a crowded room.

Where sadness shadows joy and joy masks sadness.

This is the life of one man on one street in one city.

A man who let his darkness blind his Light.
