From the Author
I've always been fascinated by myths and legends. As I was writing
about a modern myth, Area 51, I became fascinated by one of the oldest
legends, Atlantis. Combining that with a fascination for the human mind
as I was taking a course in physiology, with a focus on the brain, the
idea for Atlantis started to develop. A book, The Origin of
Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind by Julian James
also intrigued me. What were those parts of our brain that we weren't
consciously using doing?
The story evolved from there. The first book, Atlantis, was just the
start. I believe the series grows more intriguing as I add in a past
timeline in subsequent books, ranging from Vikings in the year 1000 AD;
to a gladiator in the shadow of Vesuvius; Custer's Last Stand; Pickett's
Charge; 300 Spartans at Thermopylae; etc.
And now, it seems things are coming full circle as I'm driving my
Nightstalker series toward a intersection with the Atlantis series.
It's several books out, but its coming.
