Bill Cooper, former United States Naval Intelligence Briefing Team member, reveals information that remains hidden from the public eye. This information has been kept in Top Secret government files since the 1940s. His audiences hear the truth unfold as he writes about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the war on drugs, the Secret Government and UFOs. 

Bill is a lucid, rational and powerful speaker who intent is to inform and to empower his audience. Standing room only is normal. His presentation and information transcend partisan affiliations as he clearly addresses issues in a way that has a striking impact on listeners of all backgrounds and interests. He has spoken to many groups throughout the United States and has appeared regularly on many radio talk shows and on television. In 1988 Bill decided to "talk" due to events then taking place worldwide, events which he had seen plans for back in the early '70s. Since Bill has been "talking," he has correctly predicted the lowering of the Iron Curtain, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the invasion of Panama. All Bill's predictions were on record well before the events occurred. Bill is not a psychic. His information comes from Top Secret documents that he read while with the Intelligence Briefing Team and from over 17 years of thorough research. 

"Bill Cooper is the world's leading expert on UFOs." — Billy Goodman, KVEG, Las Vegas. 

"The only man in America who has all the pieces to the puzzle that has troubled so many for so long." — Anthony Hilder, Radio Free America 

"William Cooper may be one of America's greatest heroes, and this story may be the biggest story in the history of the world." — Mills Crenshaw, KTALK, Salt Lake City. 

"Like it or not, everything is changing. The result will be the most wonderful experience in the history of man or the most horrible enslavement that you can imagine. Be active or abdicate, the future is in your hands." — William Cooper, October 24, 1989.

In 2010 call girl Jennifer Thompson hit the headlines after her infamous affair with Manchester United football megastar Wayne Rooney.

Since then the middle-class girl from Bolton and her scandalous lifestyle has barely been out of the tabloid press in the past three years.

Now in her first explosive confessional book "Bang to Writes" Jennifer lifts the lid on her days as a high class escort and recounts her liaisons with many famous Premiership players.

The novel is a true autobiography chartering her life from a young naive 'Daddy's girl' into one of the most famous hookers in Britain, mixed up in a world of cocaine, cash and sexually charged clients.

With shocking candour, Jennifer details her threesome with family man Wayne Rooney behinds his pregnant wife's back, her liaison with boxing legend Amir Kahn in nightclub toilets, how she played a part in a gay sexual scenario between a footballing star and his agent and how she was roughly abused by another foreign football ace.

The brunette beauty describes in detail how she was invited to the Manchester United Christmas party by the team's 'Mr. Fixits' and how one of her fellow call girls was given £50,000 to terminate a baby born to one of the wealthiest men in football.

Jennifer holds no bars when it comes to sharing her entire journey including a magical night in London with a famous actor, how she eventually falls in love with a notorious criminal and decides to 'go straight' eventually giving up her life of prostitution and partying.

For a while life was sweet for Jennifer, until her secret affair with Wayne Rooney became known to the national press and reporters hounded her and her friends until she was forced into selling her side of the story, a decision which broke the heart of her loving, supportive parents.

Shocking, juicy and full of provocative stories about a lifestyle that has to be read to be believed.
