Does travel play in the writing of your books?
Yes, my wife and I have traveled extensively and most of the photos in 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect came from trips we have made outside of the USA.

Tell us about your current release.
World events have aligned with at least 20 predictions in the 2009 edition.  Those who purchase that addition from us at get an extensive bonus report with news citations demonstrating that this has in fact happened.

Tell us about your next release. 

The 2012 Kindle edition does not come with an exhaustive list, but does have a summary of predictions that have began to come to pass.

Where do you research for your books? 

I buy and read other books, visit libraries, and go to sites of interest around the world.  Additionally, online resources are also helpful.

How do you describe your writing style?
My writing style is to provide quotes and comments.  When you are involved in controversial areas I believe that the quotes and references demonstrates real credibility.  And while everyone does not have to agree with all of my comments, I believe that the quote and comment style helps people be able to make up their minds in a better manner than many other styles.

What are you passionate about these days?
I am passionate about trying to warn people not to follow false prophets as well as not to dismiss the value of prophecy because there are many false prophets.  I also believe that God loves everyone and that God's real plan makes sense, so I try to explain it despite my limitations.

How do you react to a bad review of your book?
The few "bad reviews" of my book I have read have always suggested that the bad "reviewer" really did not actually read (or at least understand) 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.  Those who have actually read and understood it do not tend to write bad reviews.

Do you have a Website or Blog? 


Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

 A lot is happening in the world, and not all of it is good.  People interested in the truth about what will, what will not, and what may happen should find 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect a valuable resource.  Most of the book is focused on what happens after 2012 (though, yes, it covers what will and will not happen in 2012).


The author was raised in Michigan. He has studied philosophy, religion, research, science, and prophecy, both formally and informally for several decades. The author has a Master’s degree from the University of Southern California and a Ph.D. from the Union Institute and University. In the past fifteen years, he has had scores of articles published on these topics in a variety of print publications such as magazines, newspapers, and journals. He has been a lifelong researcher and has received several research awards. He has also worked for geotechnical and other research companies.
He has been married to his wife Joyce since 1981. Together they have made multiple trips to ancient sites in Central America, Asia Minor, Rome, Greece, and elsewhere. This would include visiting such places as Tikal and Iximche in Guatemala; Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, Laodicea and Patmos in Asia Minor; Fatima in Portugal; Vatican City, Rome, and Pompeii in the Italian peninsula; Athens, Corinth, Crete, and Rhodes in Greece; and Constantinople (now Istanbul) and Cappadocia in Turkey. They have also visited ancient ruins in Asia and explored parts of Africa.
The Thiels have three sons and live in the Five Cities region of the central California coast.
Hundreds of thousands know the author as “COGwriter” and he normally writes one or more articles or online commentaries daily at the popular website. He became the Los Angeles Church History and End Time Prophecy Examiner in 2009, and because of his writings was elevated to the role of National Church History & End Prophecy Examiner in 2011.
Because of his passionate interest in both history and prophecy, the author endeavors to make his discoveries available to the public. His writings strive to explain upcoming world events and the peace that is ultimately coming, despite the fact that extremely difficult times are soon ahead.
