Meet the Author

In my novels I try to merge the worlds of modern science (quantum theory/relativity/cosmology) with the metaphysical world of philosophy (in particular philosophy of science and theory of knowledge). The characters inhabit this world and struggle with the events of a sometimes brutal reality and the more ethereal reality of the mind. Reading the novels should lead the reader on a journey that is both physically and intellectually challenging and perhaps enlightening.
