The Young Garden Manifesto was the second novel I published, but the first one that I wrote. It is a work of contemporary literary fiction set in New York City around the turn of the millennium. It is a coming of age story and a sort of a love story. It is poetic and lyric, sometimes humorous, a little bit sad, and a little bit challenging. In a soundbite: Paradise Lost meets Bright Lights Big City.
My first book, Blazing the Sun, is a science-fiction adventure novel set in the future of our solar system. It tells the story of Samson Ford, a young racing pilot from a far flung religious colony whose inhabitants still believe in natural childbirth and forbid genetic engineering. He becomes embroiled in a feud with Martian gangsters, is targeted for assassination by leaders of a movement to ‘quarantine’ genetically inferior humans, and unwittingly enters into a relationship with the most powerful woman in the Solar System. If he can stay alive long enough, his dream is to compete in the greatest spaceship race of all: the Solar Regatta.
MY LATEST BOOK, The Quick of the Sun is the long awaited sequel to Blazing the Sun. It is the second volume in what will be a space opera trilogy called ‘The Saga of the Sun’. I’m currently working on the third volume. Here’s the blurb from the back of the book:
All ships have crossed the finish line and the Solar Regatta has come to an end. Samson Ford’s cigarette racer rockets mindlessly through space. What happens next?
A young woman is kidnapped.
A genetic experiment finds redemption.
A war begins against natural born people.
Viruses. Plague. Genocide. And worse?
One woman tries to save everything.
One man becomes more than a man.
There is a disruption to the tides on Earth.
And a monkey creature dies.
Blazing the Sun was only the beginning. Sit down, strap in, and brace for turbulence. The adventure continues here.
If you like science fiction you will definitely love this book. But you have to read Blazing the Sun first!
