The Puppet Master Gets a Challenger

Monday, January 26, 2015

What happens when you’ve made a lot of money, but then use your wealth for evil? Like leeches, Zadig Nazarian’s tech companies are already latched on to governments worldwide. Whether it’s to get them to require more biometric IDs, adopt more surveillance, or even compile more private information onto databases, Nazarian’s companies all benefit, making him richer. But that’s not enough. He also has a clandestine cyber terror network, whose members commit crimes so that governments will then be forced to use his companies for protection.

What a cozy setup Nazarian has. And since he possesses the funds to make himself invisible, and work behind the scenes, he’s gotten away with his operation for years—until his bots mess with the wrong guy.

Can someone with the knowledge, the physical skill, the determination, and the relentless drive to obtain justice for those who have been victimized ever be able to remove Nazarian from his throne of power? Carrington better try, because even with all the money he’s got, Nazarian is not above the law, or is he? Innocent people have had their lives destroyed, sometimes literally, so something must be done—and soon because the digital age has allowed too many to hide. Can Carrington do it? Many deputies will have to be taken down first. Does he have that endurance? Or will Nazarian throw all he has at him to eliminate his valiance from this world?

The world will have to wait, and see…

Not Just Another Thriller Series

Thursday, October 9, 2014


I finished the novel I referred to in my previous post a few months ago, and have been self-editing it. I’m now seeking publication through traditional publishing, which involves looking for an agent at this point, who will then try to sell the book, and the series, to an editor at a publishing company. Since I’ve self-published another novel years ago, and have learned a lot of the ins and outs of the business of writing, I believe my work will be accepted.

I’m eager for this because I want to give you the best writing that’s out there. I’ve revamped my website here, and will continue to do so. I’m also starting a vlog, which will be posted on My YouTube Channel. So yes, you can see videos of me, which I will also post here on my site. Video is where it’s at. If this wasn’t the case YouTube would not have outgrown television in viewership now. I’ve also started an email list. Please sign up for it before you leave.

Briefly, this novel I wrote is the start of a series. The main character, Edward Carrington, is a computer genius. He comes up against many enemies, but ultimately he’s warring against a billionaire puppet master, Zadig Nazarian, and his deputies, whose legitimate business affairs give cover to a sinister world of hackers, thieves, and murders he employs. Carrington and his partner Russo travel the world to stop Nazarian’s nefarious plans, even to the point of putting their lives at risk. But justice must prevail.

The first book, which I’m calling Total Power, is about how Carrington got to be who he is. You have to start somewhere. Nazarian has been confident no one was smart enough to foil his plans. But will his confidence be shattered?

I titled this post “Not Just Another Thriller Series” because I believe this story is totally plausible. You won’t think you’re reading fiction. So no fictional presidents, countries, or parts where you say to yourself, Oh come on, this would never happen. Oh no. I also state this because usually thrillers involve the CIA or FBI. Not this time. I believe we have to move on from the CIA, because today it’s only partly relevant anymore. The government institution Carrington gets involved in is Cyber Command. This and the NSA are where the world is going more so each day.

With how the elite in the world are getting richer and more powerful, how regular people have fewer choices and less freedom, and how technology is enabling a vicious brood of international cyber criminals to have their will, only someone with great physical strength, fierce intelligence, and an unwavering mission of justice can try to stand in the way of evil. Can he withstand what Nazarian throws at him? Or will he pay dearly for fighting the superpower that means to eliminate his very existence?

Sign up for my email newsletters so I can update you on this book’s and future books’ paths to publication and where they’ll be available.

Thank you for being a fan! I do appreciate it.

Who Is Edward Carrington?

Sunday, June 1, 2014

I’m pleased to announce that I have completed the first draft of a new novel. I’m going to be seeking traditional publishing for this, so if everything works out, it wouldn’t be out any earlier than late next year. It is the start of a thriller series.


The hero of the story is called Edward Carrington. He is a computer genius, but one that has decided to use his abilities for good, and not to be some mischievous or even dangerous hacker. He comes up against a group of worldwide criminal hackers, who are the under-the-table operations of an eccentric billionaire named Zadig Nazarian. Their aim is more than just to steal data, but also to sponsor drug and human trafficking, commit robbery and blackmail, and even to kill. Carrington, with his partner Vince Russo, go around the world to foil Nazarian’s plans.

I will let you know via this blog the progress of this book, and any other I write. I’m very excited about this book and about the series. I hope to write the best I possibly can for my audience, so thank you for your interest in my work.

Writing a New Novel

Sunday, March 30, 2014

I’m writing a new novel. It’s going to be the start of what I hope will be a thriller series. I hope to be done with the first draft by the end of April. After that, editing, and then I’m going to try to have it published through traditional publishing, which takes a while.

I have also decided to exclusively write fiction from now on. Maybe in the future there might be some nonfiction in me yet to come out, but for now, only fiction. This article confirmed that I was making a good decision.

I have also decided not to write any posts here on my site till I’m done with the first draft of this book I’m writing now. It’s just too much to do at once. I want this book to be the best it can be for my readers, and that requires a lot of time and attention.

I will have more news and more to share later this spring. I hope you never give up on your dreams, like me.
