About this title:
About the Author: I've always wanted to know why about almost everything, and even as a teenager I was interested in science and technology, especially about how the universe and everything in it came into being. From there I digressed for years, studying many of the world's religions, meditating and searching for the answers to life. Before I got serious about writing, my creative needs were met through photography. I've been shooting photos of the Sierras and other wilderness areas for thirty years now and love the pristine, untouched world of the high country.In the last forty years there's been a revolution in science. We are in a golden age of discovery. I wanted to have an overall picture of how everything came into being for myself, so I started a book entitled Life in a Violent Universe. I wanted to trace everything from the beginning of time up to the present. A method of interstellar travel was born out my work on Life in a Violent Universe. The concept was so unique that I decided to write a novel and called it Chasing the Light, using a fictional character to popularize the idea. The plot for Sarah came during the middle of that writing. The two novels are like apples and oranges, both fruit and very delicious, but with their own unique taste. At one point I had started three books and hadn't finished one of them. The novels became so exciting that I ended up alternating work on both novels until they were finished. Life in a Violent Universe is still in the works, as well as a sequel to Chasing the Light.
