From the Author
The anthology is a romantic love story set in times of a future war. Not a distant future war, but a "near" future war. The intent of the books was not to predict conflict, but rather to illustrate how significant and powerful "love" can be in people's lives.
Over the last three years, I have spent thousands of hours researching and writing the stories. Throughout the entire time, I have continued to work my busy ophthalmic surgery practice. Even more importantly, I am a husband and father. It has been a time-consuming life.
I believe that the writing is dramatic and impactful. My intent was to make the reader feel the emotions required to understand what "living" is all about. "War" was only a backdrop for the "real" story.
Looking at the world today, however, it seems that my "backdrop" is becoming more "real". Unfortunately, the world seems to be following my script. This is very alarming to say the least. A potential world conflagration seems to be evolving before our very eyes.
Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Russia, China, North Korea, India, Pakistan, Japan, Venezuela, Cuba, Britain, France, Germany, North Africa, and of course, AMERICA, are all significant actors in my books.
The American Amaranth Anthology is "speculative" historical fiction. But every day that passes, the story is becoming more "real". I hope that for the sake of the world, my story remains fiction.
