My Second Novel!
Katashi Ito of Kirion Cybernetics, and Jack Banachek of Banachek Heavy Industries, are business titans with a past.
Their once mutually beneficial collaboration is now marred by theft, deception, and greed. The only connection they maintain now is through hate, blackmail, and curiously, Chess. In a bid to break the vicious cycle, Katashi Ito challenges Jack Banachek to the much older game of Go.
Even as the challenge is accepted, neither realize just how high the stakes have risen. As their intellectual battle on the 19×19 battlefield of the goban rages, another, far more physical battle, rages over their latest inventions.
The world wants fusion, and patience is running out. Will these men find a way to deliver? Or will their hard work be wrestled away by spies, assassins, and malicious code, for the benefit of all?
MY First Novel!
Rocco and Nate are two buddies taking a road trip across a futuristic, climate ravaged, America. While Nate is just along for the ride, Rocco has a more sinister agenda that puts them both in the cross-hairs of an AI battle that spans the globe.
Their trip will intersect with harsh editors, a corrupt lawyer, and a charming assassin. They receive help from Luna, a quick witted hacker, Daniel, a mysterious old trucker, and Epsilon, an indifferent, but massive hurricane. Not many road trips include a drone battle with the freedom of the world at stake, but this one does.

Laid off after 18 years. What an odd feeling. Got up this morning. Here it is Friday and I have nowhere to be. Guess I’ll work on that novel.
Hi, I’m Mike. This website is just an experiment in self expression.
These days I write to create. I write to express. I write to remember…
I have steadily worked at various jobs for 35 years. It sounds like an accomplishment, but it feels like I have lost half a lifetime…
