Editorial Reviews


"One reason why Reason for Existence is such a delight is that it embraces philosophical and spiritual thinking with a sage, yet seasoned, approach that involves readers in not just nonstop action, but higher-level thinking: all this couched in the form of a thriller that is absolutely engrossing." -The Midwest Book Review

"Reason for Existence is a unique and interesting take on the interaction between humans and extraterrestrial beings. An absolute winner." -ReadersFavorite

"I'm giving this book a solid 5 stars." -The Ardent Reader

"The book is literally amazing! The feelings of insecurity about our world, the emotion of rage about the stupidity of humankind and the kindness of the forces beyond our imagination make the novel truly a fantastic choice." -Codices, The Book Blog

"A truly fresh and thought-provoking science fiction thriller that explores human nature through the lens of an alien who walks among us. If you like classic science fiction, this is a book that is well worth your time." -Bestthrillers

From the Author

Reason for Existence is a genre bending novel that combines science fiction, philosophy, thriller, and romance into a very unique reading experience. A work of metaphysical science fiction, Reason for Existence is visionary and informative. The book is a natural for discussion in book clubs, reading groups, on social media, and in academic settings. This novel makes you think. I wrote the novel to be in contradistinction to typical genre fiction since I find genre fiction formulaic. Reason for Existence is innovative and encourages dialogue. In fact, that is the goal of all of my writing since feedback from readers is much more important than the story itself. The story is nothing more that an inducement for discussion, and readers and their opinions are infinitely more important than authors and their messages. I want to learn from you: what you liked, didn't like, what you would have done differently, if any passions were lit, what themes or ideas made you think or challenge preconceived notions, all of it, so please share your thoughts. And thank you for being readers.
