Book description…

Are you a person of the Rain? A young man finds himself slipping into the dull gray oblivion of ordinary, day to day life in the city. He is struggling against being absorbed by the mundane routine, when his perception of the natural world around him, is suddenly and dramatically changed. He has an experience that opens the door to the discovery of psychic powers that, up to that moment had lain dormant in him. At first, he cannot control, nor does he fully understand his abilities. The young hero finds the most unlikely of mentors in a Native American man named John that he first encounters as a homeless street person. Alex our hero, is forced to reconsider common stereotypes as he gets to know his mentor, not as an alcoholic street person but as a powerfully gifted psychic, a highly respected medicine man in his indigenous tribe as well as a husband to a missing, presumed taken wife, father to an estranged daughter and a son to a powerful tribal elder that is known to all as grandma. John had left his people that live on the beautiful and heavily forested Olympic Peninsula, crossing the inland sea known as the Puget Sound to the big city of Seattle, in search of his wife. By luck, John perceives Alex’s awakening event.

In their quest to trace the “Scanners” back to their source, John must face a council of first nation’s elders that will challenge his past alcohol fueled transgressions and his decision to facilitate none natives to develop this gift which has been a long standing secret part of their culture.

Book description…

The doctor droned on, but all Jon could hear were the words “fatal” and “unbearable pain”. “Are you familiar with the Departure Option, Jon?” In the year 2050 the “enlightened method of dealing with terminal illness” is both pragmatic and efficient, but to deeply religious Millie Spencer it presents a moral dilemma. How can she allow husband Jon, recently diagnosed with a strange, new, fatal illness, to linger in the throes of a long, drawn-out, painful death? Although it is clear to Millie and her family that Departure would be the “best thing” to do, to her it could never be the “right thing”. Would subsequent events resolve her inner conflict? Would Millie ever find inner peace? We empathize with Millie and her family as they endure this crisis. Also interwoven into this tale is the heart-rending love story of son Sean and his mysteriously alienated wife Karen. A futuristic tale with strong characterization, The Departure may arouse in the reader a spark of fear that, perhaps one day this fantasy could become reality … and if it did, how would you react in a similar situation? Would you opt for Departure?
