How Many Alien Species Are Out There?

August 17, 2021

Aliens continue to be a fascinating subject; probably because of all the denials from the government contrasting stories from many who say they’ve been abducted. And, Area 51 doesn’t help either. Of course, imagination has created so many different species, from the Romulans, Klingons, Borg and Vulcans from Star Trek, to the Sand People, Wookies, Gamorreans and Ewoks from Star Wars, to the Annelids, Orthopterous Exomorphs and Idikiukups from Men In Black. The question is, how many actual species are there, based on first-hand encounters?

We can safely say the Grays are the most famous of all aliens.  They were significantly etched into our memory, for those of us who remember the Betty and Barney Hill abduction in New Hampshire from September 19-20, 1961. They drew the first pictures of the Grays I had ever seen. Strangely, they looked familiar to me, as well as to thousands of others. But they are just the beginning of the known species that have been accounted for.

The common Grays are known as the Zeta Reticuli and are the abductors. Then, of course, there are the Little Green Men, the species nightmares are made of. The Nordic Aliens who walk among us look just like humans. Both males and females have long blonde hair and blue eyes.

The Pleiadian aliens are the most loving, peaceful-natured aliens. I could go on with many other species.  However, one of my good friends and a fellow author, Craig Campobasso, has written a book about the several alien species known so far. The Extraterrestrial Species Almanac is an excellent guide, from the Grays to the Reptilians and more. If you are interested in becoming better educated regarding aliens, the many species, and where they came from, I highly recommend it.

Here is a link to Craig Campobasso’s book and more:

It would be interesting to know if any of you have seen an alien of any species. Drop us a line on this blog, we’d love to know!

Why Mars?

August 4, 2021

Mars…America (and the world) has been fascinated with the red planet. So much so, aliens were called Martians for decades and Looney Toons couldn’t quell its fascination that it created the beloved Marvin the Martian character.

Not only do NASA and private entrepreneurs have their sights on Mars, but it has also been the speculation of science fiction writers for decades. Whether Martians have existed (with ray guns and Tootoos) is still up for conjecture, but serious thinkers are combining their brain power in order to find a way to actually live there. Elon Musk is planning on creating a colony on Mars to slowly populate into a multimillion-person city!

But why Mars? What is it that Mars has that our Moon or Venus doesn’t? Well, one thing: Mars is a habitable planet (didn’t you see The Martian?)!  Of all the planets in our solar system, Mars has water that can be extracted from the soil, it has a temperature range we can tolerate, and there is a thin atmosphere that offers protection from the sun’s radiation, along with other cosmic advantages.

Some other excellent benefits are that its daylight hours are similar to Earth’s.  Mars has approximately a 24 ½-hour day (which adds up to 7.6 days more a year – someone’s going to have to do something with Leap year), which would help humans acclimate quickly to a rhythm they are used to.  Another huge advantage is that solar panels could be used since Mars has ample sunshine to create the power necessary to support a growing community.

Or are we going to Mars because we have seen movies and read about invaders from Mars that have come to overtake our world? This type of invasion has been planted in our psyche for more than a century, filling our hearts with fear it could happen and watching the skies for coming attacks. Perhaps we are in some way on a preemptive strike to make certain there are no malevolent entities hiding on Mars, plotting a future sneak attack!

Either way, the benefits we can realize on Mars, not available on other planets, gives us good cause to use it for our future expanding population.  Plus, we are able to explore the planet for past or already existing life and discover whether they are friend or foe.  I call that a win-win for humanity!

Do Aliens Practice Good Hygiene?

July 26, 2021

Imagine being abducted and experimented on and having to suffer through a gag reflex. Omigosh! People who have been abducted often remark about how horrible aliens smell. The aliens are said to have a spoiled, gross, cheesy smell, while the abducted who are returned often have a wet leather odor left on their clothes or body. It makes you wonder, if they are so far advanced, why haven’t they discovered Lever 2000? Do aliens practice good hygiene?

This makes us wonder where do the odors come from? Like many animals who smell according to their diet, which produces that gamey taste; it could be a completely natural odor from their bodies created by sweat or the foods they eat. There is also the chance it’s from being in a closed environment for prolonged periods of time. After all, those stuck in submarines for a lengthy time claim the sub smells of poop!

I have also read it could be the natural gas smell from their home planet. Our earth’s air is a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen. We know from deep sea divers that you can swap out nitrogen and use an oxygen-helium combo, which helps them endure the pressurized nitrogen from entering their bloodstream as a narcotic. The alien spacecraft have enough oxygen in their air-gas mixture for us to survive, but the added gas is perhaps one with an odorous character.

Sub Commander T‘Pol, of Star Trek: Enterprise, was told by a Vulcan that humans smelled. Her reply was, “You get used to it.” So, you can see the issue of odor may go both ways.

One possibility, however, is do aliens bathe? I understand they may be in an enclosed environment for extended periods of time, but is that the issue? Or is it the gas from their air mixture? Or do the aliens forego the need for hygiene?

Again, this can be a “goes both ways” situation. Some humans they abduct may not be as presentable as they would like to be while meeting a new species. What if they were a hunter or trash collector or someone out for a run, etc.?

Still, the question is valid regarding aliens, since there seems to be ever present reports they reek of a cheesy odor. Could that be their preferred soap scent? Maybe the mask mandates might serve a purpose, hmmm?!? Semper paratus persona (always ready with mask). Have you had an odorous abduction?

Alien Implants – Are They Proof of Abduction?

July 15, 2021

Man is scared of silhouettes of aliens in tunnel. Abduction and kidnapping by aliens concept.

Many have claimed to be abducted by aliens. Typically, claims are of being probed and tested on, with descriptions of beings that seem farfetched. As in the movie, Independence Day, Russell Case (played by Randy Quaid), kept telling everyone he was abducted. Everyone said he was as looney as a bird. But was he? As we learn later, he wasn’t.

Now, some people don’t even remember being abducted. However, when some ailment gets a doctor involved, devices or implants are found that cannot be explained. These implants are discovered because of unusual scars or marks, CT or MRI scans or x-rays.  The elephant in the room is, are they an indication of being abducted?

Like sharks, birds and other wildlife which are tagged for scientific purposes, having the scientists return to check on their subject; it is believed these implants are used to track their victims for future abductions, as well as to keep a record of their health.  

Can you imagine being taken and tested several times throughout your lifespan, and when their experiments cause you to become ill, to be rejected as damaged goods?  The aliens apparently require healthy subjects for their tests and genetic research.

Furthermore, these small metal devices are made of mechanical and organic tissue, like the Borg of Star Trek (there goes Hollywood predicting the future again).  They feature substances that are not of earthly origin.  They are found in the brain, inside bones, in feet and hands, etc.  The most common area of the body they are discovered in is deep in nasal cavities.

Implants have been removed by doctors, and after examination, most agree they are of alien origin – though many will continue to use the term “alleged” alien objects to protect their reputation (can’t let something as trivial as truth get in the way of one’s career).  Often, when they are removed, they only last a short while before they disintegrate (THAT”S where Mission Impossible got that idea – just sayin’).

Many people who have discovered alien implants in their bodies eventually recall their abduction, even the moment it was implanted.  Some abductees have sought help for painful headaches or nosebleeds, which led to the discovery of these alien objects and creating a stir in the scientific community.  This is, it appears, physical evidence that their patient and others have been abducted.

So, the next time you have a headache or unusual nosebleed, watch out!  You may be living proof aliens have visited earth. If you’re not careful, you may be going back some time soon. Where are the Men in Black when you need them? But I digress.

Alien Life or Government Subterfuge?

June 30, 2021

The world is fascinated by the possibility of alien life: Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica and Lost in Space. Not to forget ET and Close Encounter of the Weird Kind! With so many sightings over decades, and the constant denial by our government, is this stuff in the league of Nessie and Big Foot, or are they hiding something? But how could so many people be wrong?

Suddenly, we are seeing footage from Navy and Air Force pilots, underwater sightings with inexplicable speeds. Lights appearing all over the world that seem to go from slow moving to supersonic in a millisecond. And these sightings and disclosures are happening more randomly than ever.

Alien existence disclosure has never been closer, but many are disappointed over the release of mainly previously released or leaked video sightings from our military. So, why so little so late?

It seems everyone is far more open to the existence of aliens and UFOs. There is less of a chance of mass hysteria than ever before. In fact, people who previously wouldn’t talk about their close encounters are now discussing them openly. The fact is conspiracy theories have become a genuine national security concern.

Recently on the Fox News Channel, John Ratcliffe, former Director of National Intelligence, said, “There are instances where we don’t have good explanations for some of the things that we’ve seen.”

Also, 60 Minutes did a segment on the possibility of alien UFOs in our atmosphere. Bill Whitaker reported on the regular sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena (or UAP), that have spurred an upcoming report to Congress. (For the inquiring mind, here’s the link:

Nick Pope, investigator for the UK’s Ministry of Defense says we may never know why the Pentagon did a U-turn on UFOs after so many decades of denial. The US Intelligence Service closed Project Blue Book in 1969, basically saying, “…nothing to see here!” There has been no official interest in UFO investigations from 1969 through 2017.

So, why are they talking disclosure now? Certainly, from what they released of UFOs captured on video, there is no conclusive evidence of alien existence.  However, as we well know, our intelligence agencies are not above sending out tidbits of information to redirect us from what is actually happening, or floating trial balloons. This allows them to test messaging.

Perhaps they are diverting our attention to cover up our own US advanced technology. Think about it. If they were caught testing something they don’t want a foreign power knowing about, blame the aliens!

Or is there a more vulnerable aspect to this phenomenon? Perhaps all sightings are of earthly origin and our intelligence is under considerable pressure from China or Russia, who perhaps have more advanced technologically than us (but probably not, just sayin’). But if we stop and think about it, since the 1950s until today, information and technology are doubling at such a rapid pace that Dick Tracy tech is real, and we are aiming for Mars. Thinking out loud, could it be we have other worldly technology we’ve reversed engineered? What do you think?

When is the Last Time You Met an Alien?

March 27, 2021

Abductees usually have no memory of their abduction other than strange dream memories and ringing in their ears when they try to think about it. Like me, you may have strange dreams of aliens, and you may have an eerie feel in the morning that “something happened last night” but no evidence, just a lingering ringing in your ears. 

Aliens have been abducting humans for decades now, and they have carefully covered any potential memories with screen memories. Occasionally breakthrough memories come to us as dreams that we easily dismiss.

Have you ever had an abduction dream? Do you believe aliens exist? It’s nearly impossible not to expect that aliens are out there – given the vastness of our universe and the billions of possible life-bearing planets.

Have I met aliens? Perhaps, given the dreams, I have had. The first chapter of my Science Fiction space opera thriller, Earth’s Ultimate Conflict, is an actual event that happened to me. I tell it from my character perspective to protect my identity, of course. 

You may never know if you were abducted, and neither will I unless I have a hypnotic regression session, which I’m not in a hurry to do. Instead, I have a legion of aliens in my imagination that create the stories and plotlines in my books. 

So, I meet new aliens on a pretty regular basis as my stories go deeper into space. The interesting thing about meeting aliens, real or imagined, is that they also have life issues, like relationships, political, and spiritual. 

Spiritual, you may ask. Yes, you may think that advanced species would not have a religion or belief in a creator. One thing I have discovered, in my writing endeavor, is that as well laid out as my plot is when I put my fingers to work on the keyboard to tell my tale, my characters take the lead. They change the plotlines as they reveal themselves, their worlds, their history, and their beliefs. I have yet to meet or imagine a species that doesn’t believe a powerful creator was the architect of our universe. 

It is my belief, that as we go through this time of COVID, new medical advances, and new space exploration, our belief in a creator, no matter what religion, will become stronger. It will also become more obvious to us that God has given us life. I believe this very deeply because one thing I have learned from writing and research, is that aliens need to be recognized as possible teachers of our world religions. They, the Ancient Astronauts, came to give and teach us. What a beautiful gift given that Easter is around the corner and as usual, provides us renewed spiritual energy. 

In the Gray Guardians Book Series, I have created new alien species, new worlds, new creations. that we will be trading with our alien allies and the Galactic Union to support peace. So, if you haven’t met an alien lately or you are looking to meet a few more, please pick up copies of my first two books in the series “Earth’s Ultimate Conflict” and “Escape From Nuur”. The third book “The Journey” is in editing and will be available in 2021. The Gray Guardians Series will be a series of eight exciting revelations of possibilities.

I invite you to have a reading experience with real or imagined aliens – they have so much to share.

Gray Alien Fingers

September 3, 2019

Recently I broke two fingers:  my ring finger and the pinky on my right dominant hand, the day before my daughter’s wedding.  Not the greatest timing, but I made it through the wedding, hiding my cast from photos for the four-day affair.  It’s been a journey of doctor appointments and occupational therapy since then, trying to get them back in working order.  Unfortunately, I have to go the next step and have surgery to fix my mal-rotated ring finger.  This has certainly put a crimp in my completion of Book Three in the Gray GuardiansSeries.

This problem with my fingers got me wondering about the Gray aliens I write about.  They have three fingers and one thumb.  How do they handle broken fingers?  I imagine the healers simply stimulate the healing process and the digit is miraculously returned to normal in a few seconds.

Must be nice to get along with three fingers, though.  I have found typing difficult and frustrating since my ring finger cannot locate the correct keys on my keyboard, the way it used to.  Plus, due to its misalignment it pushes my pinky outward, missing the intended key.  Arghhhhhh!

So how do my Gray alien friends enter vital historical information, population records, operation manuals, etc. into their databases?  Do they have a keyboard created for three fingers?  Is their alphabet less or more than ours?

In Book Two of the Gray GuardiansSeries, Escape from Nuur, a character named Gar is in charge of the COM Desk and all that keeps the Pyramid City of Nuur protected and functioning.  Much of it he would tell you is old technology as the city is over a century old, so he still has some screen touch and a few buttons.  He has made some upgrades, so the majority of information he enters is with a touch-thought process.  He simply places his hand on a plate that has an image of an alien handprint and thinks the information into the data system. Gar has also added a touch plate with a human handprint to accommodate the young human he is training on the COM Desk and all of its assets.

For work, as you can see, aliens need their fingers just as we do only to a smaller degree.  However, just like humans, fingers are used for play, creating art and sculptures, creating many new inventions, tending to crops and flowers, petting our pets and most importantly, tenderly touching a loved one.

Fingers are an important part of our sense of touch, which the Grays are just beginning to re-learn since they spent over a century of their long lives celibate and lonely.  Touch has become a joy as well as their deepest heartache, as they deal with relationships that fail.  Touch was once so strictly enforced it is now similar to a drug to the Grays, who are unable to control going from a kiss to their ultimate passionate desire.  Sadly, most often they will never be contacted again by their current love interest, rejected for the next conquest as they mistakenly overdose on touch.  Their emotional stamina isn’t equipped to handle the loss of their one-night stand, let alone a longer relationship.  Murders of passion and suicides are rampant.

Fingers, Gray or Human, are extremely important.  To what magnitude is very relevant to the culture facet of our lives.  As I pondered my finger dilemma, it seems quite minor compared to what the Grays are going through.

Time will heal my fingers.  You’ll need to read Book Three, The Journey, to discover the fate of the Grays.

People Ask Me If I Have Been Abducted . . .

December 12, 2018


Alien abduction in the middle of the night


Because I write alien science fiction, I am often asked if I had been abducted.  This is possibly because much of what I write depicts the abduction process true to many people’s experiences.


I have not attempted to discover if I am an abductee or not.  However, I have had a number of episodes that could be an indication of being taken.  My earliest recollection of odd events began when I was an infant.  I have a very vivid memory of being in the sky above my home.  Then, returned seamlessly into my parents’ bedroom where my crib was only a few feet away.  I was frightened by the experience, but I was within the arms of a being who seemed to understand how fearful I was.  She lifted the palm of her hand and a small orb lit the room enough to see my parents sleeping peacefully in their bed.  An unspoken voice in my head said, “There, see your parents.  You are now back home,” and I was placed back in the crib.  I don’t recall seeing the face of the being who deposited me home, but I do recall it disappeared in an instant.


This incident never left my thoughts as I grew older.  I remember asking my mother about that night when I believe I was four years old.  She simply passed it off as a dream.


I believe many of us have dreams that actually could depict an abduction in our past.  If they are like me, that dream is a haunting reminder that “something” happened, but aren’t interested in discovering the in fact they possibly were abducted.  Why?  Because even though today there is more of an acceptance of aliens, anyone who claims they were taken by them still is subject to being ridiculed, or not fully connected with reality or worse, by a large portion of our population.


Face it – dreams, good or bad, are manageable explanations.  Discovering proof of abduction by hypnotic regression is a frightening thing, even if the experience wasn’t entirely bad.  It’s not always easy to face the truth.


There is ample opportunity for me to discover if aliens are part of my life, but there is that mystery of the unknown that I believe has helped me create my books.  The idea for the Gray Guardians Seriessprang from a dream that was so intense I couldn’t help but begin telling the tale, and it is still the basis of all my creativity.


So to answer the question, “have you been abducted,” go to my website:  https://www.grayguardians.comand listen to or read the first chapter of Earth’s Ultimate Conflict.  The event depicted, although the names have been changes to protect the innocent, is an actual, terrifying event that happened when my daughter was three months old.  From that point on in the book is speculative, future fiction, but who knows?


You be the judge.

Halloween: A Perfect Day for Aliens to Walk Among Us

September 17, 2018

Is it Really Robot?

Halloween is a day we love to disguise ourselves and become things that we are not! Mankind is infatuated with this costumed night and spend thousands to transform into monsters, dragons, ghosts, witches, goblins, our favorite TV or movie characters, etc. Some will dress as objects like boats, trains, and cars. One of my favorites was a woman who dressed as her favorite cocktail – a martini glass with two olives.

While we are busily getting ready for parties and the traditional walking down the streets of cities and towns we may have others who have also decided to dress up in costumes to mingle among us. Halloween is a perfect day for aliens to cover themselves from top to bottom with a costume meant to allow them to mingle with the people of Earth to enjoy the many facets of our nature.

Why would they want to get involved with us on Halloween?

Well, I guess it all has to do with why they are here. By many accounts, they are not only here, but they have been here for centuries. It seems to me that one could assume they like humans and have come to care about us. We may be partially their creation so they would certainly be interested in how we live, love, and enjoy our lives. I can’t believe they made their way through light-years of space to harm us. I think they most likely have fond memories of contact with us.

“Humans make us laugh”
                                Guardian Ambassador Tuchu
From the book Earth’s Ultimate Conflict

Who knows how many times they have infiltrated our Halloween tradition to enjoy our sweets and festivities. In the wonderful movie ET, they costumed an alien so they could usher him through their town unrecognized and help him get home. What a perfect cover! Just that movie alone could have given our space friends the idea to mingle with humans for fun. Fun isn’t just a human experience.

So while you are at your parties and enjoying the spooky, and sometimes wickedly joyful Halloween trick or treat customary knocking on doors you may want to pay close attention to who is behind you. Or perhaps its that small crowd in front of you that keeps looking back and eyeing you. Is it your candy they are after? Are you about to be yet another alien abductee? Or are they just messing around with you? Giving you a good scare for the evening.  I’m sure many will be enjoying another laugh….on us.
