About the Author

James Parmelee coat of arms

James Parmelee TeachingJames Aaron Parmelee is a highly experienced educator in the field of teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL), and owns and operates his own language academy in Bangkok and other provinces of Thailand.

A native of Missouri, James attended the University of Missouri in Columbia before serving for four years in the U.S. Army, including a year in Vietnam.

After honing his teaching skills with a certificate in TEFL, James has spent most of the past thirty years teaching, writing, and employing teachers in Thailand.

James loves Thailand as his second home, and has conducted his own English learner-customized TEFL course for the past eleven years (http://www.teflteachthai.com).

James and his Thai wife, Sureeporn, have two children: Jeynah, an honors graduate in Interior Design from MSU in Springfield, Missouri, and Benjamin, a graduate in Economics from Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok.

James combines high ideals with a keen sense of fun, and aspires to convert what he has learned through life experience into portraits of both good and evil, for the joy and enlightenment of readers everywhere.

One particular evil that he has encountered in Thailand is the abuse of children by pedophiles, and he is particularly offended by this crime at the hands of educators (both Thai and foreign), but most especially by members of the clergy.

In this exciting story, U.S. teacher Ignatius Fylchworthy successfully takes on an international child trafficking syndicate—and leads the fight all the way to the Vatican, while exploring the subject of life after death—as statues of the Virgin Mary at his school bleed what appear to be real tears of blood, which analysts say are too old to be of our modern era.
