He moves with ease between lavish space operas, the perils of bio-technology, telepathy and in THE ACCORD, a love story with a difference, between the cracks of alternate realities in an England that is both familiar and rather creepy.
As climate change and humans are slowly destroying the earth people are choosing to go to a virtual ‘heaven’ after they die. The main story revolves around a love triangle though and the main themes of the story end up being love and revenge set against the real world and The Accord.
The Accord, a virtual utopia where the soul lives on after death and your perceptions are bound only by your imagination. This is the setting for a tale of love, murder and revenge that crosses the boundaries between the real world and this virtual reality. When Noah and Priscilla escape into the Accord to flee Priscilla’s murderous husband, he plots to destroy the whole Accord and them with it. In revenge they arrange to have him assassinated but their success comes at the price of giving him the keys to the virtual kingdom. How can they hope to escape their stalker when he can become anything or anyone he desires and where does the pursuit of revenge stop for immortals in an eternal world?
