Welcome! Bienvenidos! Readers wanted…
Do you like science fiction? Androids, aliens, clones, mutants, and artificial intelligence? Thrillers and suspense? Mysteries? Detectives fighting crime, counter terrorism, and conspiracies? Fast-paced action and strange plot twists? My fiction offers a special treat for readers because it often cuts across all these genres. Take a tour of this website and make yourself comfortable with my storytelling. Take stock of the other information that is available.
If you landed here, you’re probably an avid reader. The welcome mat is out for you, dear reader. You and I are lucky: we live in an era where almost any reading taste can be satisfied. It’s instant gratification on the written page. Moreover, it’s inexpensive entertainment, especially if we read ebooks. Those big publishing houses are even coming around to offering ebooks for under $10. Indie publishers and authors are driving that, because indie ebooks of good quality can be found at bargain prices.
I work hard to make my novels and short stories eerie, entertaining, relevant, and often irreverent, with plots and characters that extrapolate today’s events into the exciting and sometimes controversial future worlds of my imagination. Come imagine the future with me! However, as they warn you on some highway construction signs: travel at your own risk! I may take you to mindscapes where you are uncomfortable, but I will always try to entertain you.
Yours in reading,

THE CHAOS CHRONICLES TRILOGY - These sci-fi thrillers begin in dystopia and end in the far future. You’ll find thousands of years of adventure collapsed into hours of enjoyable reading. Available at Amazon and other online eBook retailers.
1) Survivors of the Chaos – the adventure begins!
Civilization passes through a social singularity. A mild Midwesterner becomes a vigilante, an aging astrophysicist struggles to save alien artifacts, and a reluctant mob enforcer finds a new life aboard a starship.
Traditional empires like the U.S. and E.U. break apart. China collapses. Companies consolidate and expand their domain around Earth and to the far reaches of the solar system, becoming the glue that prevents anarchy as they contract mercenaries to brutally maintain order and ensure profits.
Three reluctant heroes rise above this Chaos. A mild Midwest rancher becomes a vengeful vigilante in the Big Apple; an aging astrophysicist struggles to save alien artifacts found on one of Saturn’s moons; and a tired and reluctant mob enforcer finds a new life aboard a starship on the way to 82 Eridani.
“…filmic influences cast heavy shadows over his musings…the book feels like watching a futuristic movie. Get a bag of popcorn ready, kick back, and enjoy the ride. As a reader, you are about to take off into unimagined realms.” David W. Menefee, Pulitzer-nominated author and reviewer for Bookpleasures.com.
“No question. Survivors of the Chaos is the most unique sci-fi book I’ve read in a long time…. If you’re at all a fan of science fiction, I recommend picking this up and reading it as soon as you can. You will not be disappointed.” Kellie Sheridan, Sift Book Reviews.
2) Sing a Samba Galactica – the saga continues!
Learn what happened to Billy Clarke and the New Haven colony in the 82 Eridani system. Learn what became of Brent Mueller and Jenny Wong, last seen in the moons of Saturn. Experience the battles between Humans and Tali. And more!
Humans meet friendly ETs in the 82 Eridani star system. They meet xenophobic ones bent on conquest in the Sol and Delta Pavonis star systems. A composite intelligence, the Swarm, goes postal, but Humans lead an expedition to a cosmic psychiatrist, the Singer, to save the Swarm.
3) Come Dance a Cumbia…with Stars in Your Hand! – Humanity’s worst and best are still with us!
Did you think the saga ended when the Singer saved the Swarm?
Brent Mueller, Jenny Wong, and friends battle a mad shipping magnate who wants to control the galaxy by taking over the Nexus. Henry Posada returns to solve the mystery of the Shipbuilders. The Swarm’s children discover their destiny. And more! All the plot lines merge in a final triumph of good over evil to conclude my saga about humanity’s future.
