Looking for something different? Something inspiring? Something in crime where the good guys win? Something that steps beyond the box, maybe even dystopian? Here you will find several genres of books; crime, sci fi, mystery and general fiction. An eclectic selection to satisfy the inquisitive mind.
I grew up in the 60s and 70s, during a period of radical cultural change from the post WWII culture of the baby boomers, to the counter-Establishment rebels of my time; protesting the Vietnam war and nuclear bomb tests, resisting the authority of our time because of their utter failure to lead our world away from more wars, nuclear annihilation, racism and hate. We listened to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the Eagles, and watched films like Easy Rider - all of which empowered our sense of disenfranchisement with the mediocrity of the times. The seeds that were planted then, remain today, except now I let my words incite change, and, I hope, inspire others to look outside the box at the bigger picture, our true potentiality, and our individual and collective power to achieve a society based on understanding, not war; peace, not hatred; intelligence, not wholesale ignorance.
I am not a genre-based author - but rather, a thematic one.
