As ye sow, so shall others reap (75 years from now)

The hawk carried the infected snake back to his nest to feed the hatchlings. One of the hatchlings would be killed by power lines. Crows would pick at his carcass, acquiring the virus. A second would catch a mouse, bite it, but drop it. The mouse, one unlucky little fellow, would survive just long enough to be eaten by a fox, who would pass the virus onto her offspring. The third didn’t survive the virus. The fourth passed the virus onto eleven offspring.

When we sow the seeds of our own destruction, some are likely to scatter to the wind.

Starshine: Aurora Rising Book One

SPACE IS VAST AND UNTAMED, AND IT HOLDS MANY SECRETS. Now two individuals from opposite ends of settled space are on a collision course with the darkest of those secrets, as the world threatens to explode around them.

The year is 2322. Humanity has expanded into the stars, inhabiting over 100 worlds across a third of the galaxy. Though thriving as never before, they have discovered neither aliens nor the key to utopia. Earth struggles to retain authority over far-flung planets while an armistice with a breakaway federation hangs by a thread as the former rebels rise in wealth and power.

Alexis Solovy is Earth Alliance royalty, her father a fallen war hero and her mother a military leader. But she seeks only the freedom of space and has made a fortune by reading patterns in the chaos to discover hidden wonders in the stars.

Nothing about her latest objective suggests the secret it conceals will turn her life–and the entire galaxy–upside down. But an encounter with a mysterious spy leads to a discovery that will thrust Alex into the middle of a galactic power struggle and a sinister conspiracy.

Aurora Rising is an epic tale of galaxy-spanning adventure, of the thrill of discovery and the unquenchable desire to reach farther into the unknown. It’s a tale of humanity at its best and worst, of love and loss, of fear and heroism. It’s the story of a woman who sought the stars and found more than anyone imagined possible.

Where the Hell is Tesla? A Novel

SCI-FI ODYSSEY. COMEDY. LOVE STORY. AND OF COURSE… NIKOLA TESLA. I’ll let Chip, the main character tell you more: “I found the journal at work. Well, I don’t know if you’d call it work, but that’s where I found it. It’s the lost journal of Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors and visionaries ever. Before he died in 1943, he kept a notebook filled with spectacular claims and outrageous plans. One of these plans was for an “Interdimensional Transfer Apparatus” – that allowed someone (in this case me and my friend Pete) to travel to other versions of the infinite possibilities around us. Crazy, right? But that’s just where the crazy starts.”
