Welcome to the Author Spotlight. My guest today is author, John J. Ventre. You may recognize him as one of the hosts on H2's Hanger 1: The UFO Files. John is the author of many books. His lastest release, An Alternative History of Mankind, can be found on Amazon and his website at www.johnventre.com. I've asked him to tell us a little bit about his new book, what inspired him to write and how it changed him.
Hi John. Can you tell me what your new book is about?
In the beginning, it was “Them”. It has always been “Them”. They have been here from our beginning and are the missing link in our “Evolution”. Follow our alternative history from Egypt to Rome to our Founding Fathers to Hitler to the accidental sinking of the Titanic by a USO to our Presidents. Our true history is now documented for you. If you were hoping to read just another run of the mill UFO book, then this book isn’t for you. This book will cause you to question everything you’ve ever been told from Science to Evolution to Creation. Do not sit up at night and read this book to your Grandchildren!
What inspired you to write An Alternative History of Mankind?
I have been lecturing on UFOs since 2008 and have been a MUFON member since 1998. I finally accumulated enough knowledge on the topic to compose a book that tells our true history along with pages of facts in chronological order. I believe any novice or UFO expert will learn something from my book. It is a UFO 101 book and also tells a possible past history that has been hidden.
How did writing the book change you?
I believe this book and my role in the History Channels H2 series called “Hangar 1: The UFO Files” will give me name and face recognition in this field. I believe I will get more speaking engagements which I enjoy. I do not plan to write any more books. This is my best work to date and I will end it there.
