About Over the Edge...

The over-arching theme of Over the Edge is the quest for God. Within that is the search for meaning, for unconditional love, for truth, for connection and for redemption.

The first book in the series came out in 2004, Over the Edge: The Beginning. The bottom line: the book wasn't ready--I wasn't a sufficiently good enough writer to pull it off. You can find copies on Amazon and elsewhere--used copies. The book is now out of print, but I'm rewriting it.

Meanwhile, Give Her the Stars was released in 2012. Give Her the Stars is the first in a series written in the Over the Edge universe featuring characters from the series and are stand-alone novels. However these stand-alone novels will add to the reader's understanding of the Over the Edge world. Ostensibly, Give Her the Stars is a romance, and, yes, it is a romance, but more, it is a young woman's story of giving up worry.

Love From the Stars is coming in 2015. It's the story of a young woman who must give up her boyfriend and rent-to-buy home to move in with her demented mother in a far away city to care for her. In the course of her sufferings, Violet is also forced to give up her self-righteous hypocrisy and in so doing, finds Grace and Love. It's also the story of Causey Lindo, a libertine, who finds he's tired of the wastrel lifestyle. Already full of the awareness that he is nothing and can do nothing but sin, he finds Jesus and is transformed. He lives in Romans 5:20 and II Corinthians 12:9-10.

Look for Love From the Stars in 2015!

Science of Over the Edge: The Surveillance State

In Over the Edge surveillance technology exists and is carefully regulated, but in early 2015 we haven't gotten to that point--we don't yet have all the little niggling entry points where corporations and government can gain access to our lives blocked or controlled. We're in danger of finding ourselves living in a country where liberty is paid only lip service, meanwhile corporations and government control us.

In this video Dark Journalist, Daniel Liszt, discusses the hazards of RFID tags, smart phones and the surveillance state:

Science of Over the Edge: Nano-tech Inside the Body

In Over the Edge characters use nanobots to clean and gather forensic evidence. In one scene, nanobots are used to create what will appear to be a heart attack, kill a man and leave his body. Google plans to use nano-technology for a much less nefarious purpose:
