It's Coming, but are you Ready?

Gritty Young Adult, Psychological Thriller, Middle Grade chap book, Adult SciFi—almost every novel I've written and all that I've published have strong elements of crime. It's the one thin thread I can hang onto as I try to create a brand for myself as a writer. In my BackTracker series, it's not too abnormal that I write adventure YA novels with a crime sub-genre, a young teen becomes involved with a criminal gang.

Crime and SciFi is a more unusual combination, perhaps. Although my adult SciFi  SCHRÖODINGER'S CAT has more science than law, it does include a heated custody battle and a mysterious doctor who seems to advocate murder...in alternate universes. 

Criminals run rampant, however,  in my soon-to-be-released near future  adult SciFi, DISPASSIONATE LIES. Conspiracy, espionage, cyber-attacks and possibly murder. It's 2035 and the justice system is in trouble. Hackers have collapsed the internet and compromised all digital data. Governments teeter and economies crash.

Ladesque’s struggle to get the world once more up and running online coincides with her desperate search through breached records to uncover the truth about her past.

Too many may get away with too much as defence lawyers, governments, scientists and corporations argue the evidence, the photos, the research, police reports and lab analyses were contaminated in the crash of the Web. 

Coming Soon! 

DISPASSIONATE LIES 


The year is 2035 and the world’s emerging from a devastating  economic collapse. Computer guru, Ladesque, finds her task of restoring the world’s internet capabilities, dull until...

She’s approached by Paul, an attractive FBI agent intent on recruiting her to an ultra-secret project. There’s only one problem—the asexuality she was born with thirty-five years ago, vanishes and she’s left struggling with the unfamiliar power of libido.

When everyone, from ungainly computer geek, Roach to handsome Paul, becomes appealing, Ladesque suspects the popular explanation for the female asexuality saddling her generation is a lie. Her suspicions increase when an encoded diary and whispered rumours link the affliction to conspiracy and murder. However, uncovering facts  proves difficult in an age where hackers have corrupted all digital records.

Putting her quest on hold, she joins Paul’s project where her uncertainties are quickly overshadowed by the explosive technology and high-tech challenges of her job. Then, she receives her final assignment. She can either expose her mind to the potentially lethal quantum computer for the sake of the world or be forever a watched woman.

She, alone, must assess the risk—a risk that just might reveal the truth about her past.
