A story about the audacious challenge to defeat one of our greatest socio-economic threats – Alzheimer’s disease – and how the medical community and the pharmaceutical industry rise to face it. The pressure and enormous stakes of the Race for the Mind expose the most noble and misguided aspects of our humanity.
Dr. Darya Rostov, one of the greatest minds of a generation is stricken with Alzheimer’s disease – she represents the 50 million people who are currently making their long journey into the night. Jack Callahan is the CEO of BioNeura, a San Francisco biotech company developing what could be the first breakthrough for patients like Darya. Dr. Nathaniel Shah, a brilliant neurologist rises to run SNS, a rival company based in Geneva, Switzerland and hides a terrifying secret. The plot tracks Callahan and Shah, each driven by very different things and their struggle within themselves and with each other. It should be all about the patients like Rostov – but alas, we’re all human – and that sometimes gets in the way.
100 percent of the profits from book sales will be donated to Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

The Imperium is our species’ greatest achievement…
…and it’s dying.
The very institution that ties us together, keeps us safe from the Grays, is teetering on the brink. The great senatorial families vie for dwindling scraps, using every trick in their arsenal to gain advantage.
Inspector Paul Grimm’s best friend has been framed for a murder that, technically, he did commit. Paul must follow the trail before it goes cold to find out who’s behind this latest attack on the powerful Nathaniel family.
To clear his friend’s name, Paul heads out to the Rim where Imperial colonies sit uncomfortably close to territory claimed by the Gray Quorum. In his desperate race to unravel the plot, he’s pulled into a web of intrigue along with Colonel Julia Urbica of the Imperial Marines. Julia’s local, irregular troops prefer to enforce the Emperor’s peace by finding trouble before it finds them and they adopt Paul’s task for reasons of their own.
Events escalate at every step, and Paul’s mission to help a friend is dwarfed by a threat to the very fabric of Imperial life. He must walk the knife’s edge between peace and outright war with an advanced alien species.
But then, perhaps war is just what the Imperium needs. The current peace has a stench of decay about it.

Alessandro Romeo is burned out after finally extricating himself from a nearly year-long relationship with a hot-tempered Italian model who set fire to his Lamborghini when she suspected him of cheating. He’s sworn off the fairer sex and instead spends his waking hours overseeing the expansion of his family’s hugely successful winery in the magnificent hills of Chianti, where he is happy to never see a model again, let alone date one.
American supermodel Taylor McFarland might be blond, but she sure isn’t dumb. And she’s smart enough to know to avoid the shallow men who seem to migrate toward her type, the ones who presume that models are the wild women of the fashion industry who happily discard men like used tissues.
Only Taylor’s not that type at all; instead, she’s intent on using the influence her position affords her to help those less fortunate than she.
But when her good deeds means clashing with the quintessential heartless Italian player who she’d heard left model Gia Sandretti at the altar, well, she will happily give him a piece of her mind, and certainly not a piece of her heart.
