My Wilderness Experience Front Cover v10 for Web Insertion

My Wilderness Experience is a one-on-one story of Apolonio Garcia's life, aka "Junior." 

This story contains real life situations. Junior shares his childhood experiences and the decisions that molded his life.

After surviving a life on the streets filled with alcohol, drugs, and negative peers, Junior finds himself in the Dewitt County courtroom at the age of 18, facing prison time. After serving nearly 12 years in a Texas prison, Junior has an encounter with Jesus Christ that radically transforms his life.

Junior is now a free man spiritually and physically. His life has been completely changed and restored by his relationship with Jesus Christ.

My Wilderness Experience is one of the greatest testimonies of the power of Jesus Christ, and the power of a life committed to the calling in our lives.

From the Book:

With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)

There was a time I was so far in the devil's pit that I couldn't look up and see the light. The mold that was my life had formed me into a hardened man who knew only one way to get what he wanted: violence.

God saw a man He could use even in my despair.

I was in prison, estranged from my family, and the darkness surrounded me. I had failed at school, failed in relationships, and failed at being a father. When God offered me salvation, for a time I failed at serving Him.

God saw something greater in me than I saw in myself.

He used my prison experience to mold me into something He could use. He carried me through the wilderness, and He brought me out on the other side.

This is the story of My Wilderness Experience.

About Apolonio Garcia:

He is an ordained minister with the South Texas District of the Assemblies of God.

He endured a rough upbringing and wound up in the Texas prison system. God saw something great in Apolonio and changed his life.

Apolonio credits God with guarding him through his violent youth and tumultuous prison experience.

He sees now that God was molding him with his experiences to become the man of God he is today.

Pastor Garcia founded and pastors at Hallettsville Community Church in Hallettsville, Texas.

One Layover at a Time: Tips for Traveling Well

This book will become your go-to guide!

This is my third book offering helpful hints to make people’s lives better. To listen to those who have read my previous books, my words of advice have done just that. I’m grateful and humbled by the warmth and generosity of each of you.

I’ve turned to travel in this volume. Growing up, I traveled the globe with my parents, from Japan, to Germany, to India, to Hawaii. After getting married, my new family continued to travel, from Maine, to Alaska, to Florida from my home in Texas. Many trips were uneventful, and on others, I learned what not to do.

This book is full of tips I’ve gleaned from my travels. If even one of these makes your traveling easier, I’ve done my job. I hope you find many more useful. Your mode of travel doesn’t matter. Airplane or train, car or motorhome, each has its shortcomings. Whether you stay in a luxury hotel or economy lodge for the weekend, you’ll find something in my book you won’t be able to live without.

Each person travels differently. You may have discovered travel tips that I’ve not included in this book. If you wish to share your travel tips, email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. I would love to post your hints (with credit to you if you wish).

Please visit my website at to let me know what you think of my latest book. We’re in this together, and I hope to hear from you soon!

When Stars Collide Front Cover v3 reduced for web insertionThree engaging tales by a master of historical fiction!

Step back in time to when men were men . . .

. . . and women followed where they led. It's a time of military prowess, and a nation warring against itself.

In A Soldier's Tale, Becca Rains gives up a life of luxury and ease to become an officer's wife, although she never intended her small act of vengeance to take her from her family and into the narrow world of the United States Cavalry.

The Gold Nugget reveals the inner life of a soldier brutally injured in the War of the Rebellion, and his chance meeting with a dying man in an Army hospital. He leaves the desolation behind to find his fortune in the mountains of Colorado, never suspecting that riches cannot be found in the soil. 

A Reluctant Hero is the tale of a reticent Marine who receives an advancement in rank for his courageous actions on the battlefield and an unexpected visit from his well-intentioned sister.

When Stars Collide reveals the Civil War in a way you've not experienced, and you will be entranced.
