Alex Kavanagh is a pedantic, physics-obsessed geek. He’s a teacher who hates teaching; a lover who’s just been dumped (again); a writer whose articles all get rejected; an adult who still lives at home and gets bullied at the bus stop by teenagers; and he’s just had the worst day of his life. So far, so bad. Things can only get better, right?
While drowning his sorrows he sees an ex from six years ago, Lucy Spiers. The point when Lucy dumped him was the point when his life started to go nuclear. He can’t help himself: he tells her exactly what he thinks of her. So it comes as a surprise when they go on a date. He didn’t expect a spark to be reignited. Couldn’t foresee the power of magnetism. He hadn’t realised that he still loved her.
Holy protons, he hopes she’s changed.
She’s changed all right. For a start, she’s actually Lucy’s twin sister, Jane...
Cold Fusion is a story wrapped around an enigma. It’s a novel about making peace with the past and moving on.

The end result is interesting and authentic characters, clever and compelling plots, and believable worlds. When he isn't writing he loves exercise, guitars, computer and board games, the natural environment, animals, social justice, cake, and zombies. Not necessarily in that order.Review:
"A surprisingly powerful perspective on the life of a loner. I appreciated the lesson given that we are never too old to try new things and experience a fresh outlook on life. I really enjoyed this book." -- Readers' Favorite
"A book that must be read to the end. It is a story of love, loss and moving on. As with a Rubik’s cube, it is not clear how the puzzle satisfies until the final few twists re-establish order. It really is a book where everything happens for a reason. This is a clever book that warns against allowing your heart to be so crushed it becomes a black hole, and how love does not always follow the rules." -- Neverimitate
"Intricate layers of family, life and love twist in to Cold Fusion 2000. With its bittersweet ending and complicated characters, Karl writes with truth and hope in this coming-of-age novel. The past plays a huge part of the novel, but what it truly comes down to in the end is the outlook for the future and the peace that the characters have to make with their own pasts. I was pleasantly surprised throughout the story with every new unveiling, and can say that this is a one-of-a-kind novel that can be interpreted in many different ways and that the reader plays a huge part in what they can take from the enigma-filled novel. A hugely inspiring novel that I adored from start to finish." -- Pretty Little Memoirs
"I was hooked. I don’t want to say too much about the book as I don’t want to spoil it, but there are clues in the book leading up to a twist at the end. I didn't see the twist coming and only realised what the clues were after I’d read it and started thinking about how we had got there. A great book which I think every reader will interpret slightly differently and get something different from." -- Sheli Reads
"The characters were not the type of characters that are usually written about in books. They have oddities, a strange quality about them that makes you both love them and want to back slowly away from them at the same time. Very dysfunctional at times and very true to life and caring at others. The characters were so compelling that I had to continue reading." -- Doubleshot Reviews
