Deception People: "Riveting from beginning to end ..."


When Troy Evans fell from that tree and nearly cracked his skull at the age of five, little did he know that 25 years later, the ability he developed as a result of that near-death incident, would inadvertently lead him to discovering a terrorist plot, one that would make 9/11 look like a walk in the park, and one planned by the very stanchions of America's governance. Troy, and his psychiatrist, Dr. Melanie Cross, the only person who believes his story, find themselves running for their lives as a special-ops team hunts them down, while desperately trying to find someone who can help them avert the attack before it is too late. A thriller and the first book in the Out-Step Series.


"Riveting from beginning to end, make sure you set aside a weekend once you start reading.”  author, Eric Richard Dallaire

Keeno Crime Thrillers: "There is no doubt that Réal Laplaine can create a nail-biting mystery." - Red City Review


Canada doesn't have a suave crime fighter like 007, James Bond. It doesn't have action heroes jumping tall buildings, bending metal, or shape-shifting, but they do have one crime fighter, and he bleeds like you and I. Keeno McCole probably never intended to fight crime, but at the age of four, he witnessed a man strangling the life out of his mother and a young boy who picked up a pair of scissors and stabbed her attacker, set himself on a road to become the criminal's worst nightmare. The Keeno Crime Thrillers follow Keeno McCole and his RCMP team as they take on the big sharks in the sea of crime, taking them across Canada and around the world in pursuit of their man. You will come to love Keeno; he's tough, unrelenting, loyal to a fault, and completely dedicated to just one goal - putting criminals in the ground.


"Once you read this fast-paced novel that keeps you on the edge-of-your-seat, you will be addicted to Real LaPlaine's character, Keeno McCole..."

"Intrusion is a novel in the mold of James Bond ... it's an alternative to Cussler..."

Woman Ex: "An utterly captivating and quickly-paced thriller..." - Author, Victoria Ichizli-Bartels


Woman EX - a dystopian sci-fi thriller.

Tanner McNeal and his crew of intrepid space-jockeys have just arrived back from their 16-year long mission to Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons, only to find that Earth has changed in the wake of two cataclysmic events, and that men are a dying species, and women now rule. Faced with the dilemma of how to restore balance to what is left of his genre, where a patriarchal society is not only shunned, but considered criminal, Tanner and his crew fight for their existence, as Lady V, the Commander and President of New America, uses her full power to rein-in the incipient revolution, calling into play her ruthless army of drones to wipe them out, as she prepares to launch her ultimate weapon, her answer to the “disease” of men, Woman EX. All the while, a small band of resistance fighters sympathetic to the plight of men and opposed to the tyranny of V’s regime, are planning an assault of their own, one that will define who wins in the end, whether balance will be restored to an asymmetrical world, or whether Woman EX, a new breed, will become the future of humanity. 


"Chock full of great characters, lively action, and adroit narrative, Woman EX  is a novel you won’t want to put down." - Author, Ken Dickson

About Réal Laplaine



I think the inspiration to write was first seeded back in high school, in Canada, where I grew up, when I read such books as 1984 by Orwell, A Canticle for Leibowitz by Miller and of course, Tolkien. The author who finally kicked me over the edge was Richard Bach (Jonathan Livingston Seagull) and his book The Bridge Across Forever. I well recall sitting in Copenhagen, Denmark, on a business trip where I finished that book, promptly went to a store and bought myself an empty writing book and penned my first story. 

Life and my work kept me so busy that it wasn’t until over 20 years later that I finally published my first novel, and I’ve been publishing ever since.

I’m an activist for human rights and equality – one of my books, See Me Not, is a literary fiction (based on fact) about sex trafficking, and which I have spoken about at venues around Sweden.

My books, while action thrillers for the most part, are topical and always forward some thematic message such as abandoning nuclear weapons, stopping global warming, and raising the social and collective consciousness of the world so that we can rise above war, hate and racism and learn to live together like the intelligent creatures we are.

My recently published thriller, entitled The Other, although action and suspense from start to end, carries a profound message about the need to dramatically shift our cultural ways before global warming strikes the point of no return.

I created and oversee several other forums:

International Writers Inspiring Change - a forum that promotes authors and their books.

Equality: It's our right! - a forum that stands for equality and human rights and spotlights issues that violate such.

Beyond the Box - a forum that challenges conventional ideas which minimize and straight-jacket our collective consciousness and our ability to advance to higher levels of culture.

So, with that lengthy diatribe - enjoy the visit.
