“Decompression Map,” a $9.99 bound novella with writable map guide and journal in the back of the book, is NOW available at USA Amazon.com and Amazon worldwide sites. The novella and a map guide are also available on Nook & Kindle.
Inspiration for this novella came in part from soldiers who were willing and able to talk to us about their war experiences. We were moved to create this story as a way of looking at a possible better transition from combat to civilian life for some soldiers.
This is our method of opening up conversation about new ideas to welcome and decompress returned/returning soldiers worldwide. We believe if enough ideas are implemented the results can only be positive.

Matrix Filia and Claudette Walker
Available in Bound Book & eBook!
From sidebars to sideshows, this is "The Casey Anthony Murder Trial.” A comprehensive look at the media, judicial system and more, eyes wide open. This is what most people never see, inside a murder trial.
Authors Matrix Filia and Claudette Walker are together for the first time in the writer’s den, sharing a mother daughter bond that has spanned nearly 40 years, a concept as old as time. Their unique perspective and the unfortunate commonality of this tragedy inspired a comprehensive look at the trial of Casey Anthony for the murder of her daughter, Caylee.
With all the elements of an American tragedy, complete with the elevation of the mother to celebrity status, Casey Anthony stands accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter. Caylee last seen with her mother went unreported missing for 31 days. A massive worldwide search ensued, before the discovery of Caylee’s remains in a murky swamp six months later.
Both the lawyers and witnesses seem to cross the lines between fact and fiction during this spectacle of horrors. The media covered the arrest of the mother and for the first time an American jury selection is televised, live from our home of Pinellas, Florida. From selection to sentencing, this is a comprehensive interpretation of a first-degree murder trial and our American Justice system, for good or bad. The judge, lawyers, evidence, jury, costs, media, Facebook, Twitter, verdict and sentencing are all part of the “Circus of the Century”. This is not a verbatim transcript, but a keyhole look at what happened in courtroom 23.
”Happy families are all alike… every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
"Imagine the concentration, hard work, and pondering both Mother and Daughter have written about this well-known murder trial. The pondering over testimony, even choosing the Jurors - made me want more and more. Although this case in some minds has ended, it will never end in a mother or daughter's mind. The more you read the deeper you fall into the story you thought you knew. It isn't like hearing it while you are trying to tell your children to stop fighting, cooking dinner, or half listening while on a phone call - this book takes you into the head of a mother who had no care where her daughter was for thirty one days. It brings you into the FBI searching for evidence on her computer, how to kill someone, with both chemicals and instruments. It points out the lies, and the joy Casey was having with her boyfriend and imaginary friends. At times I was baffled by the Justice in our country when so much was up front - and the Jury in my eyes, one sided. It makes you wonder how any mother can be dancing up a storm while lying to her parents about the where abouts of her daughter and their only granddaughter. It makes you want to change the system, open the eyes of those who were chosen to judge the murder case of Casey Anthony. There has never been a better concept in my view of any other real life murder trail then that of Claudette Walker and her daughter Matrix Filia. With a sixth sense alone, and the insight of being a mother and grandmother my intuition has made its way to a conclusion. Now, don't let this outstanding, well written, and widely known case slip through your fingers - I know once you start reading, getting into the nitty gritty of the life of Casey Anthony, you too won't be able to place the book down. Congratulations on a book which should be read by families all across this land of ours. You never trust anyone - even your own daughter when a mother believes she is lying. Read it today."
