(and to my journey . . .)
Through this website, I hope to introduce you to a current and future eclectic selection of books that you will find thought-provoking and enjoyable whatever your specific interests may be. As you can see from the book covers displayed below, I have finished the first two books in the science fiction Mobis Trilogy and I’m working on the final book in that trilogy, The Obeldazi. The first two books are different from traditional science fiction tales in that they focus on the emotional experiences of being different―as an alien, or outsider―and of being at war and what those experiences can tell us about ourselves.
In a dramatic departure from my science fiction inclinations, as soon as I finish the third book, I intend to address a subject that has always fascinated me and that speaks volumes about the dark side of human nature. That is how the female of our species―our mothers, wives, daughters and sisters―have been devalued, marginalized and objectified throughout history and even today. For the Love of June is about the life of one of the bravest women I’ve ever known, and the difficult choices women have to make.
Next, I intend to write another non-fiction book that explores the nature of the ubiquitous evil in our world. Many people simply accept the biblical view that human evil is the collateral product of a supernatural struggle between God and Satan. I could never accept that simplistic explanation and came to believe we would benefit greatly by arriving at a more realistic and useful understanding of why we humans commit cruel and selfish acts.
I hope you will join me in my journey as I explore some important questions through my writing. If you feel inclined to share your personal thoughts about science fiction, women’s place in our culture or the nature of evil, I invite you to do so through my blog.
May you live long and prosper!
