My 5 Novels – Shorty Dawkins

I am an Associate Editor of the Oath Keeper’s website, and I am a writer of novels. Over the past 10 years I have written, and published, five novels, under two pseudonyms and now, with the 5th novel, I am using my real name, Alan Milner. When I was young, I thought I would someday write a book. It wasn’t until I was 54 years old that I finally had the inspiration to write one. It literally “appeared” to me in a very strange way, but isn’t that how inspiration works?

My first book, The Legend of Shorty Dawkins, became a trilogy, with Books Two and Three to follow. I wrote them using the pseudonym of Cody Larson. It was when I moved to Montana that I took on the use of the alias, Shorty Dawkins, as I liked the character in the book.  Eli and Me was the fourth book, authored by Shorty Dawkins. Recently, I finished We Will Endure, using my real name, Alan Milner.

All my books are about freedom, and the people who believe in freedom. Throughout my life, I have had the pleasure of knowing many interesting people who, when given the freedom to be themselves, had marvelous ideas, or had the courage to question the realities of life. And yes, I have known those who sought to control me, to crush my individuality and make me one of the “slavish masses”, which I have always resisted.

Today, I am offering my books as a means for Oath Keepers to make money. From this point forward, for each paperback book sold, regardless of where, or by whom, I will donate $5 to Oath Keepers. For each Kindle book sold, I will donate $2. Below is a description of each book, with links to my store, where paperback versions of my books are available, along with links to the Kindle versions. I believe in what Oath Keepers stands for. I believe in the Constitution, and in freedom. I will not be a slave.

I hope you enjoy my books. It has been fun, and a work of love, to create them. It was always my desire to create likable, real characters, for it is real people that we meet each day.

We Will Endure

We Will Endure

By Alan Milner

List Price: $18.95

388 pages

This is a story of survival and endurance. It is also a story of love and compassion, which, if this world of ours should ever fall apart, will more than likely be in short supply. If civilization is to endure, it must be based on compassion, respect and the simple belief that every life matters. Our present “civilization” is moving away from these simple human qualities. It is, therefore, doomed. No society can long endure without honesty and respect, backed up with compassion. Technology cannot replace basic humanity, for the wellsprings of that humanity reside in the spirit of man. Those who say, or think, otherwise, are lost souls.

In each person, there resides a spirit, which is not a part of the reality we perceive, but of the reality of the Creator, whatever you may call it. The Creator, is the complete consciousness, of which we are but a small part, yet within our spirit is all of consciousness. It sounds contradictory, but it isn’t. We merely have to learn how to access that consciousness. Mankind once had that capability. The Bible refers to the Fall of Man. It is a reference to the descent of man into savagery. It is the loss of the connection with the complete consciousness. With that loss, mankind fell into savagery, which continues to this day. Most will deny it, but if they were honest, and looked at the wars, the genocide, the narcissism, the psychopathy that exists in this world, and the evil of those we call the Elite, it cannot be denied.

Most people prefer to exist with blinders on, preferring the numbness of ignorance,to the possibility of pain and suffering, yet to experience true joy, one must first face pain. It is our purpose, in this life, to experience both, not the numbness of nothingness.

There is a mystery within this story, that I invite you to unravel. Few will try, but those who are willing may find something of value in the solving of it. It is not the obvious mystery you will see in these pages, but something far deeper. I invite you to discover it.

Eli and Meby Shorty Dawkins

266 pages

List Price: $18.95

What if the world’s engines just stopped? Suppose the electric grid suddenly stopped supplying electricity. Supposing your car won’t run. Suppose no electronics worked. This is the stark reality of what might happen should there be an EMP blast, high up in the atmosphere. Would you be ready for it? Would you be ready for the breakdown of Society? The Government hates those it calls “preppers”. Why? Because preppers are prepared. To be prepared to look after yourself and your family is now considered questionable behavior by the Department of Homeland Security. They don’t want you self-sufficient; they want you helpless and subservient. Eli and Me explores what could happen, if the world, and all its lying, manipulating politicians suddenly go crazy.

    1. Gerardo,

      I had never investigated pantheism, so was surprised by your comment. I did a quick Wikipedia investigation of pantheism, and found Spinoza is credited with developing it as a philosophy. Never read Spinoza. My beliefs come from a lifetime of questioning and investigation. Thanks for your input.

  1. Hey Shorty, I would be very interested in buying the whole set, you have my email, drop me a line. It might be a few days before I can access that account, but I am interested.


  2. Hey Shorty. You may not remember me but I helped you ”pound nails’ for a patriot retreat in Montana a few summers back. I just wanted to thank you for the work you do with Oath Keepers.
