Stewart Parks

Biography

As his publisher, I must say that little is known about Stewart Parks, and he seems to like it that way, having refused to submit to his editor either a close-up photo or a biography for inclusion on this website. We have been able to establish that he is a fourth-generation native of San Diego, a UCSD graduate, a member of the WindanSea Surf Club, and a lifelong student of physics, philosophy, and cosmology, who can often be found prowling the beaches of southern California. He claims that his consciousness is frequently involved in inter-dimensional time travel, but his wife tells us that when this happens, it just appears to her that he is napping in his well-stuffed, black leather Barcalounger(r).

We did manage to obtain this statement from him about his reasons for writing this book:

"An anonymous Junebug once said: 'The message is what separates a story from a lie.' My message is aimed at the young adult reader, hoping to find their place in a confusing world, as well as appealing to seekers of all ages looking for existential answers. While attempting to both entertain and inform, my intention is to challenge the reader to examine their most closely held beliefs. My hope is to reconcile spirituality and science, mind and matter, in a way that may help turn us away from separateness and annihilation, the path I fear the world is taking."
