The Sins of Peace is the first act of a trilogy of high octane late 26th century science fiction thrillers. It’s about a man who wakes up in the hospital with no memory of who he was or how he got there. Just as he sets off to solve this mystery he discovers he has superhuman abilities and is hastily thrown into a lethal and disorienting interstellar game of cat and mouse against a determined Special Forces officer named Dutch. As our man of mystery and the operator hunting him begin to piece together his identity they uncover a complex conspiracy to disrupt the galactic balance of power.
This is obviously science fiction, right?
The Sins of Peace is a science fiction spy thriller.
Science fiction spy thriller?
This will appeal to any reader who enjoys a good military science fiction adventure as well as anyone who enjoys a politically in depth spy thriller.
We are curious about the world the story is set in.
It is set in the interstellar society of 2585. It has been five years since the most devastating war in galactic history ended. In the war’s wake it has left a diverse and traumatized population of aliens and humans to find their way in a minefield of polarizing moralizing dilemmas and extreme complex political ideologies trying to survive, rebuild, and move on.
Tell us about your story’s hero.
The interesting thing about this book is that I tried very hard to write neither our man of mystery nor Dutch in terms of antagonist and protagonist. I wrote them as two people of similar origin and personality trying to find what’s “right” in a conflict devoid of morality. Though they both have similar personalities they each take a different internal path on this conflict even though they clash several times through out the duration of the novel.
Our man of mystery struggles with his own identity, not only on the level that he can’t remember it but that he also fears the man he once was. As he uncovers his dark past he discovers that he has more than his fair share of skeletons in his closet. As a result he is confronted with the question of if he wants to be this man anymore. Dutch on the other hand is confronted with the idea that he will never be at peace. Can he accept the death and destruction he cause during the war and will his body count ever stop going up?
Have you written any other books that we should read next?
This is the first book I’ve published but I will have some new projects coming soon.

I am currently hard at work on the sequel to the Sins of Peace. Titled Lies In Peaces it will pick up the story five years after the conclusion of the Sins of Peace and bring about a whole slew of new questions on who or what our man of mystery is keeping the same level of political and morale complexity blended with engaging page-turner action.
