Detroit area resident, Bob Moats, has been writing short stories and plays for as long as he can remember. He has lost most of his original stories, typed or handwritten, in the numerous moves he has made from his hometown of Fraser, Michigan to Northern Michigan, to Las Vegas and back to Fraser, where he now lives. Moats became one of the causalities of unemployment a year ago, and had time on his hands to finally pursue a life long dream of writing a full blown crime novel. Thus was born the first book, "Classmate Murders".
What followed was a series of seven books starting with "The Classmate Murders" which introduces the main character, Jim Richards, who has to admit he has become a senior citizen, reluct ... read more

I have always been an independent person as far back as I can remember. I was the first one out of the house even though I was the middle child, and in my own apartment as soon as I could afford it. Of course I forgot to budget for food so it was quite a struggle at first. However, the struggle abated quickly as my job positions climbed. I quit my job as Director of IT & Financial Services after my second child but not before starting up my own business designing websites. Designing websites and working on the Internet gave me the freedom to raise my kids but has been very challenging.

Kane’s first novel, The Sowti Squad, was born of these two events.
Suspected of being a mercenary while hitchhiking through Juba, the Sudanese government arrested and deported Kane to Uganda. Hoping to continue his homeward journey by ship, Kane travelled through Uganda to Mombasa, Kenya’s port on its Indian Ocean coastline. Fortune smiled on Kane. The Brae ... read more

When I was a teenager I was fairly skilled at drawing. I produced some good pencil images which sadly have now been lost. There was a drawing of an engine from a Rolls Royce Camargue. It was large, and the shading of it used up three pencils. I remember the hours I spent on its production during the summer holidays, and the music I listened to as I worked. I was destined to go to Art College, but family circumstances meant that I never got there. Instead, I finished up getting a job.

Lost civilizations, the paranormal, earthy magic (not your boy-wizard's spells), and realistic action stories have always grabbed my attention. Ancient mysteries are especially fascinating to me: What happened to them? How did they do what they did?
It's a real kick for me to try to imagine what might have happened. I call this, "true mystery, fake history."
Kokopelli's Thunder is the first in series of books. In each volume, I'll re-imagine what might have happened to a particular group of people, pulling in unusual and novel elements to weave a tight, sophisticated action-adventure story. And, like Kokopelli's Thunder, there will be two timelines for each book such that the reader needs both "threads" of t ... read more

Since I can remember I’ve wanted to be a writer which might explain why I spent most of my life working as a journalist. I didn’t have the guts or the know how to pursue my dream. Then life got in the way.
But before that I produced my first newspaper when I was nine (total readership: 12). I put together a project at school on the Cultural Revolution in China in 1968. I was 12. The Chinese embassy in London sent me a crate load of Mao Tse Tung’s ‘Little Red Book’ which aroused some ‘official’ curiosity!
