Dennis Powers started writing in the seventh grade, when his first poem, “Nature’s Sculptor,” was published. His life since then has been devoted to writing, adventure, and the outdoors, although taking a few detours to earn his living. After earning a B.A., J.D., and M.B.A., he first worked for large corporations in financial areas, while he dreamed about another life. Establishing a law practice on the California coast in Santa Barbara, he was a single dad, and began writing poetry, newspaper and magazine articles, fiction, and nonfiction books, earning his keep during the day while writing at night.
Deciding that teaching would give him more time to write, he joined the faculty at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon, to teach business law for nearly fifteen years and recently retired. His non-fiction book, “The Office Romance,” was his publisher’s lead book and he was on a national book tour. After writing ten nonfiction books, Dennis has returned to his first love, which is writing fiction—including a few that came to the proverbial “close, but no cigar” to being published by New York City publishers.
He also writes for regional public radio with over 100 stories aired over the last few years. Whether fishing for salmon, white-water kayaking, or wilderness hiking, his interests are with the outdoors—and his writing. Dennis resides in Southern Oregon, with his wife Judy, two cats and libraries of books. Having adventure traveled to over 75 countries, he journeyed to Costa Rica four times, the setting for his fictionalized adventure piece, “The Gold Bugs” at Smashwords.

Dennis Powers, who has long been one of my favorite non-fiction writers for his books on nautical subjects, has now turned his skills to a marvelously compelling and thought-provoking novel dealing with the possibility that we can live in different planes of reality at one and the same time and how that might play out. A well-crafted and suspenseful story, it provides much food for thought about the nature of reality, while at the same time entertaining the reader in a very satisfying way. This is a page-turner that sucks you in almost immediately and keeps you turning page after page of twists and turns while following the journey of Paul Hastings in his search for the truth. Imaginative and intelligent, A World Within Worlds should appeal to a wide range of readers as it combines various genres from thriller and mystery to time-travel and science fiction to metaphysical and spiritual. Guaranteed to satisfy!

Don't make the same mistake that I made - getting this download just before bedtime. Instead of glancing it over, then setting it aside for later reading, I sat down to read JUST the prologue - then Chapter 1 [couldn't stop myself], Chapter 2, etc. Powerfully written 'hooks' keep you wondering what is going to happen with the 'real' Paul that it is difficult to pry yourself away. I may have missed some sleep, but it was well worth the shuteye. This author has a real knack with words, and what an imagination. Loved this mystery!
