“There are thrillers and then there are ‘techno-thrillers’. The Apothecary is the latter, even though the word conjures up the image of old magic and old potions. Readers with an interest in science gone awry are the audience of techno-thrillers, which often rely on scientific disasters or the injection of political power struggles into the scientific process or discovery – and this is where The Apothecary gets really interesting….” Diane Donovan, Senior Editor, Midwest Book Review. Read.
“The Bottom Line: An electrifying, whip-smart reading experience about a rogue scientist whose lethal creations place the world at the brink of collapse. The Apothecary is a nano-technology thriller, exploring the heights of human degeneracy and the vile consequences of insane arrogance. Highly recommended. Read.

Also available as an ebook, The Mountain Place of Knowledge is the first in the Ancestor Series of techno-thriller novels set in a nexus between the modern-day world and the legacy of advanced ancients. When the burial chamber of a Mayan sorceress is discovered in western Belize, cryptic metallic scrolls within reveal a secret mountain entrance leading to a destination referred to as Trinium, the Place of Knowledge. But is the human world ready to weather the impact of long-lost relics from an advanced, galactic civilization? Sudden death mysteriously strikes down a U.N. official, and investigators are sent to Belize to find the truth… which may be far more than they, or all of humanity, ever bargained for! Tense and exciting to the very end, The Mountain Place of Knowledge is a “must-read” for connoisseurs of quality suspense!
The Mountain Place of Knowledge has been named the best action-adventure book for 2013 by the prestigious “Foreword Reviews.” Read.
