Brilliant Japanese Mini-Series about Gail Chord Schuler’s Catherine the Great Japanese Ancestors
This (above) is an excellent Japanese production about the Oshu Fujiwara family from which I am descended. It is one of my favorite productions – very well acted, directed and produced with an excellent screenplay and much better than a lot of the trash we watch here in the West. Because I am descended from this family, Jesuits won’t allow it to be shown in the West with English subtitles. I hope to write an English language novel based on this mini-series, where I will base much of the story from what I am able to figure out from this production and from my own historical research where I am making heavy use of Google translator! It will be a historical novel about a fascinating family. I do not speak Japanese, so a lot of the novel will come from my own research. Like a writer I admire, Colleen McCullough, who wrote about the Roman Empire, I would love to write this as a historical novel which will educate people about this important royal family who lost their empire. I do have portions of this mini-series with English subtitles to give me valuable historical information about a family whose history should be known. It is a story about survival against the odds with a Romeo and Juliet love story. Check out my writer page for more about my work on this novel, which I am calling Jesus, the Eternal Bridegroom: Robin Williams from Heaven. But I have my hands full writing Lusts and Acclaim right now. To ensure I do not write garbage I simmer on all my books, putting a tremendous amount of thought and research into all the characters I create. These books will come out when I feel ready. I won’t compromise quality for speed. I am determined to write for posterity. My current work Lusts and Acclaim is a type of historical novel, in that I am telling parts of the secret story about Pope John Paul II, and this requires me to do a lot of research about his views on love, sex and marriage and other aspects of his character that are important for Lusts and Acclaim. I believe that Pope John Paul II fell in love with me while spying on me for the Jesuits and he ended up giving his life to try and protect me. I have a lot to portray about this, and this requires a lot of research. I am reading parts of his writings to help me get into his mind. Zack Knight already gave me some very important information when he admitted to me in 2012 that the real Pope John Paul II died years before 2005. That was a Pope John Paul automaton who died in 2005. I have speculated from my research that Pope John Paul II probably died in December 1999 when I discerned that Loree McBride was a Vatican agent. The Jesuits had to kill him to prevent him from interfering with their attacks on my life.

Prefers Literary Works
Most of my favorite movies are based on a literary book, but some movies failed to capture the book. For instance, the book Exodus by Leon Uris is a favorite, but I omitted the movie which failed to capture the book’s characters accurately. On the other hand, Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series did not impress me too much, but the Anne of Green Gables mini-series excelled the books they came from. For a book or movie to be my favorite it had to interest and move me as I read it. Most modern productions and books have cardboard characters and plots and they BORE ME TO DEATH. I hope, as a writer, to fix this problem in modern literature and movies. I have to admit that my past books have been attempts to fix this, but I think I may really do it with my next book Lusts and Acclaim. The book or movie has to challenge my imagination and create a world of characters who explore the soul and very few works do this to me. If a movie has great music, that helps. I don’t like any productions of Dickens’s David Copperfield that I have seen, but I suspect I’d like this one. They need to make a movie with an ending EXACTLY LIKE THE BOOK, with David and Agnes together. The David/Agnes relationship made me love David Copperfield and so few films capture this.
