All About Author


Evolved (November 2016) is a transformative work of fiction blending science and spirituality. Set in a post AI society in which silicon and organic life forms blend almost seamlessly, the government has used science to manage evolution for over a millennia to produce humans capable of overcoming apocalyptic challenges. Amos Hare is the final product of the evolution project and must solve the puzzle of a low entropy singularity in space called Kairos, or pregnant time. Amos must choose between love and societal salvation, silicon and organic life, science and spirituality (abandoned long ago).
