In ancient lore, the dragonfly is the symbol of transformation and rebirth. In Dragonfly, Sebastian brings a tired and skeptical nation through a process of metamorphosis no less dramatic than that undertaken by the dragonfly larva as it transforms itself from an ugly water bug into a beautiful aerial acrobat.

Or does he?

Madison Thompson, a mechanical engineer, and Janice Edmonds, a Puerto Rican novelist, are dark horses in the 2016 election, but manage to pull off an upset using one very unusual tactic: Honesty. Coupled with a reticence to speak ill of the other candidates and a desire to focus on their own qualifications, they win victory - and the metamorphosis begins.

In a twist becoming familiar in Sebastian's novels, the last few chapters throw everything into doubt. What really happens will rely on America acknowledging that the shape of tomorrow - Tomorrow's Reality - will be the result of hard work, not fate.

About the Author

Raised a simple Missouri farm boy, Sebastian managed to attend a British Prep School before commencing a college career that would culminate in a Doctorate Degree in Marine Ecology. He also served as an Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Navy, and as a scoutmaster, SCUBA instructor, Wilderness Survival instructor, and Firearms instructor. He has worked as an ecologist in both government and private practice, as well as a freelance nature photographer and computer programmer. Now, a father and grandfather, Sebastian offers life lessons in the form of stories about the challenges people face and conquer. To that end, his first lesson is always his favorite quote. “Failure is the whetstone of success.” ~ T. Leith Rettie, 1884.

Sebastian Roberts left nothing out here. Intrigue, murder and romance intertwined in a story that keeps you guessing until the very end. A surprisingly quick read that holds your interest and makes it hard to put it down

President-Elect Madison has assigned his transition team a daunting task: examine every agency in the Executive Branch and find a Constitutional foundation for each of them. If none can be found, the team must find a way to correct things without abandoning the people served. Many of the programs that catch their attention turn out to be Accidents of History: never intended to be permanent. The efforts of the team are wrapped up in assassination plots, lust, and love, lending spice and realism to the story that makes it both entertaining and exciting. Sebastian’s style makes the normally dry topic of government interesting: even the committee meetings are riveting. The reader can relate Madison’s efforts to the ongoing presidential election and understand what all the fuss is about. Sebastian pulls the reader along to an astonishing and adroit ending, leaving us gasping in surprise.
