At the tender age of eight, Norm Clark acquired a copy of "The Wizard of Oz" and became a voracious reader, which unwittingly sowed the seeds of a dream to write. Many years later, Ken Follett's "Eye of the needle" gave birth to the repressed desire to author novels, and it set the genre. The need to provide food and shelter forced his dream to the back burner, but he spent his free time studying the creative writing process until able to begin his first action novel. The favorable reception of "Resurrected" encouraged him to continue with his dream.

Bob Rector’s review
“Unthinkable Consequences” by Robert Rector takes place in 1959 Southern Florida where Rector’s creative storytelling talent takes us on a roller coaster ride of genres from erotic to hard-hitting action.
Paula’s extra-marital affair with Kurt fulfills the missing elements of her stale marriage, but forces her to deal with the guilt of her actions. En route to a secluded beach, Paula fights the internal battle between her physical desires and her attached feelings of guilt. As usual, the anticipation of fulfillment with her muscular paramour won the day, but today was different. Kurt denied her the physical fulfillment she craved and delivered an ‘only me or nothing at all’ ultimatum.
His demand changed their relationship and exposed flaws they now had to deal with. Certain Paula would decline; Kurt neglected to tell her of his mercenary involvement in a jewel heist involving a Columbian drug lord and the inevitable danger.
Paula struggled with the dilemma and came to terms with her husband’s lack of interest and his mother’s total dislike of her. Her carnal desires won the day and led them to a wild ride through lust to love, and a surprise violent encounter with ‘bad mercs’.
Rector’s vivid writing forces you to turn the pages to the very end.
A great story told well and a highly recommended read.
