Sex & Consequences shifts the focus towards creating a Crèche type educational institution to serve the offspring of professionally worthy mothers from six months of age on to high school levels and beyond. It involves the establishment of a summer camp facility on a beautiful lake in the Laurentian Mountains and a specialized private boarding school in Columbus. In the meantime the architecture practice expands rapidly in several futuristic directions, including the evolution of trade conferences and shows conducted globally by electronic means. The attempted sale of Monica to the Arabian Sheik discloses the purchase of a controlling interest in the casino by Mafia members previously imprisoned in New York and recently released. The prosecutor indicts them for illegally trafficking in women held in bondage with the objective of keeping organized criminality out of gaming interests in Nevada. With very strong assistance by the company in Montreal, Dan raises the money to acquire the shares held by the underworld. Monica and Robert return home to Columbus where Dan initiates the long process of bringing Monica back to a normal existence and helping to instruct her to academic standards necessary to become the principal of the Crèche. To Dan the resurrection of Monica to lead a happy productive life surmounts all of his lofty ambitions.

I was born in the northeastern part of South Africa near the Lebombo Mountains which forms the boundary with Mozambique. We lived in a Gold Mining town in the Drakensberg Mountains called Pilgrims Rest where my father was the District Surgeon. There was a steep pass down the precipitous edge of the gorge which led from a town called Graskop to the Bushfelt below which stretched out as far as the eye could see. That is the country that will always live in my soul. Amongst his black patients my father was known as ”siksikane,” the man with a knife. I came to North America as a young engineer with expertise in thermodynamics to go to work in the Canadian aircraft industry in the nineteen fifties during the Cold War when the object was to outpace the Soviet Union in defensive capability. For the next dozen years I was wrapped up in super-secret projects in California, which was then the creative center of America. It all ended with the war in Vietnam which in history will be seen as America's nemeses. After that, I made my living serving high tech industries with strategic planning services to diversify into non-defense areas. One of my clients hired me as the marketing member of a turn-around team and I hired a smart young Persian MBA who became a life-long friend and involved me in his business ventures which took us into the motion picture field which proved beneficial to both of us. I also continued my engineering ventures in energy conservation. Living in Malibu turned me into somewhat of an environmentalist with practical ways of diminishing man´s footprints on mother earth. I began writing novels in the late 1990's based on my life's experiences. My current focus is on educating the public about the abuse of children in foster care by publishing a book entitled "The Foster Care Dilemma" which will grow into a series of editions as more foster care challenges emerge.
