From the Author
I've always been fascinated by myths and legends. As I was writingabout a modern myth, Area 51, I became fascinated by one of the oldestlegends, Atlantis. Combining that with a fascination for the human mind as I was taking a course in physiology, with a focus on the brain, theidea for Atlantis started to develop. A book, The Origin ofConsciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind by Julian Jamesalso intrigued me. What were those parts of our brain that we weren'tconsciously 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 pasttimeline 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 myNightstalker series has a connection with the Atlantis series, along with my Time Patrol series.
