Dr. Robert's life story reads very much like some of his novels. A rock 'n roll run-a-way at thirteen, he has travelled the world extensively in many professions. Blessed with many talents, Dr. Robert spent just over two decades as a performer in the music industry, before becoming an entrepreneur and creator of both audio and video productions. He holds a Bachelors in A/V and a Masters in Science Business Administration.
After a major heart attack in 1998, Dr. Robert ceased his business activities, began his current career as a novelist, and also began his Doctorate in Philosophy, which he graduated in 2005 at sixty years of age. Additionally, he holds a 16 year US patent for an 'improved computer game controller', which is soon to be launched. Having started out writing a post-apocalyptic situation comedy series for television, he is now well past his millionth word of fiction.

Divine Deception is one of six books in the Will Traveller Chronicals series. Robert, the hero of the tale, gives us a first person account of his adventures after finding himself transported to New World, a technically advanced Theocracy in which he has the identity of a member of the ruling family of despots and consequently granted god-like status.
He sets about exploring this exotic world, and despite the distraction of numerous women who lose no time in shedding their clothes and making themselves sexually available, he sets about righting the evils of the oppressive regime, pressing all the right democratic buttons even if his feminist agenda may be undeveloped.
In terms of style, characterization and even plot I was reminded a good deal of the 'golden age' of science fiction - when A E van Vogt heroes developed super powers and Edgar Rice Burroughs magically transported John Carter straight into the centre of the action on Barsoom. The sex too, through frequent, is not really explicit by 21st century standards.
So expect no profound challenges from Divine Deception, this is unashamedly a fast-paced adventure aimed directly at entertaining open-minded, (and broad minded) readers.

I enjoyed this creative thriller! I couldn't put it down. It's well written and very descriptive. I was captivated from the very beginning. It's full of suspense and intrigue with a touch of romance. Worth the read!
