What are you currently working on? Actually, I’m trying to popularize my most recent novel, Devilish Little Flying Machines. Most people are oblivious to the fact that the use of domestic drones is a grave threat to our society. Alas, I’ve found that it would probably be easier to climb Mount Everest in the nude, than to affect public opinion on this matter. If we, the people, lose our voice the government will keep on usurping our liberties, and ultimately use this new technological Trojan Horse for the purpose of surveillance and control. You’ll know it’s too late when the day comes that you wake up and look out the window to see a drone peering at you ... What is your advise for new and aspiring writers? To write for the sheer joy of self-expression, as I have done all my life. As far back as I can remember I have loved words, and the emotions they can evoke. The power of words is unparalleled in human history. Thus, I wanted to harvest that power and put it to good use. As Plato said: Those who tell the stories rule society. We do best when we do what we love. I have always loved, to tell stories, to let my imagination run wild. It makes me feel free, like a Stallion racing over the open plains. So, my advise to any aspiring writer is to love writing so much that nothing else matters. Don’t write stories with the hope of fame or fortune. Write from your heart, about things that move you to tears. As I’ve always said, if we have nothing we are willing to die for, we have nothing to live for.

Two brothers, Nicholas and Gordon St. James, become estranged following the death of their parents in a hit-and-run accident. Twenty years later, feeling betrayed after losing his fiancée to his best friend, and haunted by the loss of his parents, Nicholas falls into a deep depression. Meanwhile, on the other side of he country, Gordon is tormented by demons, obsessed with power, and consumed by his desire to control his wayward wife. Unwittingly, these two misguided men are destined to once again cross paths after the older brother, Gordon, becomes embroiled in a post 9/11-type attack that rocks the world, while an uninformed society sadly looks on in horror. Is the time soon approaching when this new technology will become a Pandora’s box full of unforeseen evils that cannot be undone?
