The Scapegoat

By James Sullivan, Ph.D.

The Scapegoat


I did not have financial transactions
with that man...

While serving as a major in Vietnam in 1972, Jim Sullivan wrote what he considered to be a joke, which indicated he was considering selling highly classified information to the press.

When Sullivan was re-assigned he realized his career was over. He decided to take action by suing, which ended in a courtroom battle. A captain, a military-intelligence operative, and a brilliant army lawyer recognized Sullivan had been seriously wronged and secretly worked together to resolve his predicament.

El Vago

A Vagabond Travels Around the World.

By James Sullivan, Ph.D.

Traveling Around the World More Than Two Decades and Still Going!

James Sullivan began traveling the world in 1986, and hasn’t stopped since. Thanks to this wanderlust, he eventually traveled his way to (and through!) all seven continents and 146 countries. James used every form of transportation that was available, and was usually accompanied by his wife Diane.

When telling others of these travels, he received quite a few comments pertaining to his use of wit, descriptions and hyperbole. Thus was born one of those decisions that just seemed to make itself; “write these stories down!” He did, and began calling himself “El Vago” (“The Bum” in Spanish) in all correspondence and stories thereafter.

El Vago: A Vagabond Travels Around the World is the result of those travels with stories told by James in his own colorful, interesting and extremely personal style.

El Vago

"We can use many names here: vagabond, tramp, bum, traveler, wanderer, etc., all translatable in practical every day language. There are some who are addicted to this disease (as some would consider it), who of course are quite well known, i.e., Steinbeck, Hemingway, Jack London, Sterling Haydon to name a few. Of course, others became heroes because of their contributions related to their ventures: Mar Da Columbus, Cortez, Pizarro, and let’s not forget Father Serra, who was the priest responsible for the founding of the majority of Catholic missions along the California coast.

If one does not have this lure, there is no way he can understand the reason for those of us who do and the need to see the other side of the mountain." ~ Jim Sullivan

by James L. Sullivan, Ph.D.

Traveling through Aftica

Jim Sullivan, aka “The Wanderer,” spent three years traveling and working through­out Africa (from January 2001 to February 2004), where he visited 22 countries while existing on an extremely limited budget. His mode of travel consisted of whatever was available (broken-down buses, ships that should have been junked years prior, backs of motor-bikes, and just plain backpacking).

A man of wit and perception, he brings to life the people of Africa, the wide gaps between poverty and wealth, and gives vivid descriptions of cities, jungles and wild animals he viewed on his great adventure. Read Sample Chapter

Power & Prayer

How I ruined a military career, then healed myself by helping others.

by James L. Sullivan, Ph.D.

In 1972 James Sullivan, upon being assigned to Vietnam for the second time, ended up in a key position in the central joint intelligence activity for Vietnam. There all information of all categories (Secret, Top Secret, Communication Intercepts, Cosmic, agent reports, etc.) flowed and was processed into intelligence. This intelligence was used as the basis for all joint offensive and defensive decisions throughout Southern Vietnam.

Being placed in a position as in-county chief, Sullivan had five majors plus other officers and sergeants working for him. Seven colonels were his superiors. No one was directly assisting him.

At a crucial time when it was thought an overall enemy offensive was imminent, Sullivan, with his team of 25, was required to turn out two-hour briefings with a maximum of two-hours notice. Under a high-level of nervousness, Sullivan wrote what he thought was a funny note. Three days later he was hospitalized for being psychotic. Then when he was released he was assigned to the most dangerous province in the country.

The Devil Forgiven

By James Sullivan

The Devil Forgiven goes through many twists and turns and the reader is continuously pulled along. It concerns an extremely remorseful evil one who, after plotting against God’s plan of enhancing the universe, finally realizes his disastrous error. His remorse is so heavy he is like a cold rock floating in space with none of his previous subordinates with him. All he can think of is how can he get out of this predicament.

To be forgiven, the devil is provided the opportunity of living five lives over 1200 years to experience five types of alcoholism with a view towards eventually obtaining the means of overcoming this dreaded disease. An angel is sent to assist him, however she inwardly recognizes there is no way that such an evil entity can be saved. The work ends in an astonishing manner.

—Dan Spingola, an editor in Stockton, CA

“A little heavy on sex, nevertheless, very intriguing.”
—Gordon Pynes, retired journalist
