NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Have you ever wished for a miracle? Of course you have. You know you have. For which of us on this planet, atheists included, has not at one time or another, and with the heart of a beggar, pleaded, entreated, prayed, even bargained for a miracle of one sort or another to be granted, whether for ourselves or someone else?
Author Eliot Hartford Bailey tackles this very "touchy" subject, with an interesting twist, in the release of Chasing A Miracle, his first book in a trilogy of the same name, and reminds us that miracles are not ever to be confused with hocus pocus or even unexpected good fortune.
In Chasing A Miracle, Chief Investigator and protagonist Dr. Adam Bell knows all too well the difference between miracles and magic. After all, 'miracles' are his official business, and under investigation, at the Bureau of Scientific Skepticism (B.O.S.S). His decent nature and intellectual curiosity soon cause him to delve more deeply than required into the anatomy and character of miracles - all in keeping with the Bureau's secret agenda. This passionate involvement happens not a moment too soon as it turns out when, without warning, his own dire need for a miracle transforms his usual impartial, objective, routine work with this covert federal government bureau into an inordinately personal, life-and-death chase. Understandably, Adam is also, of necessity, himself inherently transformed from the quiet, plodding, somewhat hesitating investigator, unused to police work, into a man on a mission, a father-to-be with a cause, where time is of the essence, and there's no room for error...
"There are many disappointing "mystery thrillers" out there, and so it is refreshing to pick up a novel that actually works. 'Chasing A Miracle' presents us with the supernatural, and espionage, and a crafty protagonist who is double-crossed, plenty of references to actual locales and relevant world events. (Who would have thought there were so many real-life survivors of skydiving accidents?) This is essentially a "what if?" adventure… it's a first novel by a new author who is exploring storytelling's reach in an interesting and different genre. I'm giving this book five stars as it is well worth the read." Dhyana A. - Goodreads.com reviewer.
Many years ago, Eliot happened to serendipitously cross paths with the one and only Oprah Winfrey (who offered him some words of wisdom) on his island home of Saint Lucia, a chance meeting which he believes has inspired him greatly over the years.
Moreover, during the writing of this book, Mr. Bailey was intriguingly and inexplicably visited at his business place, in the presence of all his staff, by a (still) unknown woman who had surprising knowledge of his name and face and who claimed to have been sent to him by the Holy Ghost with a message from God himself! "An unfathomable experience… surely not one to be taken lightly," says the author. "It was one which only further fueled my fire in the creation of what I believe you will discover is a stimulating trilogy."
My interview with Mr. Bailey was a real eye-opener. He holds some quite interesting, deep, and different views on a range of topics – dreams, religion and even down to his theory on humans as creators of their own evolution.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
