Background Information

I grew up with parents who though good people were criminally inept as parents. Before I was ten I knew I couldn’t turn to them for advice, so I turned to others. Books. J.R. Tolkien’s Masterpiece The Lord of the Rings gave me a template for moral behaviour. Frank Herbert’s Dune taught me to reason. Homer taught me of courage and opened the door to that great storehouse of human experience, mythology. The written word has both saved me and defined me. T.V. shows such as MASH relieved my stress and taught me how to crack a joke.

In short, I own much of who I am to the many writers whose works I have enjoyed. I can only hope that my own work can in some way help someone the way theirs did me.

Additional Information

I have two e-books currently available in addition to Tinkerís Plague. The Hollow Curse. Ben and Alysia are the current incarnations of soul mates cursed, in a previous life, to be separated by a gulf of years and social norms until they fully accept their love, share a lifetime, and raise a child together. The book follows them through several incarnations and shows how the spirit that now inhabits Dorry, Alysiaís collage girlfriend, who was the originator of the curse in a previous incarnation, has hounded them through life after life. Will love win out or will a cycle of tragedy and hate hound two innocent souls through all time? Slaves of Love. Race is a private eye, ex�cop in the year 2105. As a left over from an undercover mission he must struggle to control Ralph, an artificial personality implanted in Race so that he could infiltrate the crime syndicates. Ralph is a sociopath; immune to the anti�violence conditioning everyone receives at the age of ten. The Race personality retains control of his body until Astra, Race's secret fantasy, is slipped protoerotoskillen, a drug that turns her into a love-slave. To save Astra, Race releases the Ralph personality so that he can force Todd, Astra=s handler, to tell him how to counter the drug. Race also forces Todd to give evidence against the crime syndicate to the police. Lois, a dirty cop breaks Todd out of police custody and takes him to Percival, the local crime boss. Percival becomes aware of Ralph's existence and decides to increase Race's stress level so that the Ralph personality can take control. With the precision of a chess master Percival uses protoerotoskillen and venusfly, a drug that induces a nearly irresistible lust, to manipulate Raceís family and friends towards their destruction. Will Race realise his loved ones are under attack in time to save them? Is Astra=s love real or drug induced, and will it be enough to hold Raceís sanity together? What does Ralph think of this situation, and can a sociopath learn to love? Most importantly, how can a man who can=t hit back defend what he holds dear?
