Is Our Way of Life Sustainable?
Can humans control their destiny?
Do we have freewill?
Is our species the focus of creation?
Our religious and legal institutions are based on the presumption that the answers to these questions are yes. If we hope to ever again live in concert with Nature, a requirement for our eventual survival, we had better be sure!
Chet Shupe is an engineer and researcher who has spent thirty years delving into these questions. In his groundbreaking book, Eden
, Shupe provides answers that may be hard to face. But the gut reaction they produce tells many that he may very well be right.
Sure to engender controversy, Eden provides vivid glimpses of another life entirely a sustainable way of life that allows humans to live together without sacrificing their spiritual freedom. A life in which living in the moment is as natural as breathing. This book leaves no sacred cow untouched, yet Shupe s arguments hit the nail dead-on, time after time. Even outraged skeptics struggle to counter his reasoning.Eden is an expose revealing the root causes of our intractable social, economic, and political problems.
Eden is a call to action for those whose instincts have been telling them something is fundamentally wrong.
Eden is a message of hope about the resilience of the human spirit and its innate capacity for genuine intimacy, trust, and freedom.
Shupe's professional background is in Electronics Engineering. Suffering from a serious Attention Deficit Disorder and then, at mid life, having it corrected, combined with his background in control theory, fostered his interest in how the life of a species works. In addressing this concern he writes on such things as: How the brain is organized; our expulsion from Eden; the origin of good and evil; conceptual black holes; mankind's three primary myths; why humans trust their lives to religions, ideologies and science; the reference for order; unsustainable ways of life; and finally, a few surprisingly simple things we must realize if we are ever to return to a sustainable way of life.
In essence, Shupe's conclusion is: We must flow with Nature, rather than try to defeat it in the belief we have a better way. We are, of course, defeating it, but that's our problem. We are expressions of Nature. Its defeat is our defeat.

Midnight's Cloak is the first part of a ten book epic fantasy series. The series takes place within the timeframe of a decade. Midnight's Cloak is world building Epic fantasy and contains maps an appendix and a glossary. As far as the type of fiction I write, i would say it's similar to Robert Jordan, David Farland and Terry Goodkind. Midnight's Cloak is 361 pages. There is a lot of charicter development early on in the story. Also there is romance and I write a lot of battle sequences. My map is rather small on the paperback so i always recommend a pdf ebook because you can zoom in on the map to see places. It is also cheaper and I earn a larger royalty for it. Midnight's Cloak is edited and proofread. Outskirts Press E-book 5 dollars amazon search inside the book available soon.

In the mid-21st century, the human race stopped aging. Those who know why aren’t talking, and the few who are brave enough to ask questions tend to disappear. To an elite few, The Change means long life and health, but to the ever-increasing masses, it means starvation, desperation, and violence.
Four centuries after The Change, Grace Harper, a blacklisted P.I., sets off on a mission to find the man responsible for it all and solicit his help to undo The Change — if he’s still alive. To complicate matters, Grace’s employer is suspected of murdering his father, and when the police learn of their connection, they give her a choice — help them find the evidence they need to convict Matthew Stanton, or die. But if they discover Grace’s true mission, they won’t hesitate to kill her in order to preserve their shot at immortality.

Project Moses – A Mystery Thriller
By Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author
Robert B. Lowe
“A thriller with an ideal fusion of wile and wit.”- Kirkus Reviews
Project Moses is a high-tech bioterrorism thriller in the Grisham mode that has been well received on Good Reads, Library Thing and Kindle (4.7 stars based on 28 reviews as of May 31). It has romance, suspense and humor.
Enzo Lee, 37, a burned out reporter, has forsaken investigative reporting on the East Coast to churn out feature fluff in San Francisco. He likes his North Beach apartment, steps away from his Chinatown roots. Running, tai chi, great food, women who are attracted to his exotic looks. Life is good.
Then, Lee’s comfortable life is shaken up when he is ordered to cover the unexplained deaths of a local judge and prosecutor. Intrigued by the connection, and the judge’s attractive niece, Sarah Armstrong, Lee begins to uncover a bioterrorism scandal whose perpetrators - including government officials and Silicon Valley titans - will kill to conceal.
When Lee and Sarah become targets, the question becomes whether the pair can evade their hunters and piece together the story before their time runs out. Project Moses is set in San Francisco, New York and Silicon Valley.
