Descriptions of the Nondescript

My books

To date, I have just one book published, but there are two more in various stages of completion and many ideas for others.

My first book, Dying to Live Forever, is a hard science fiction novel set in a span of time between roughly "today" and three hundred years in the future - all within the lifetime of its most major character: Rik van der Gelder.

You can find this book - in eBook form only, for now --- on Amazon for Kindle, Google Play Books, iBook (use your iDevice or Mac to find it by the title or by searching for my name as an author), Smashwords, for Nook, for Sony or Kobo, and probably many others that Smashwords has published to on my behalf.

Here is the book blurb I wrote for Dying to Live Forever, which was published on October 1, 2014.

Celebrity scientist and inventor Rik van der Gelder finds his lust for living waning after having lived two full lifetimes, courtesy of the 'fountain of youth' rejuvenation technology he helped to introduce. Bored nearly to death, he escapes alone in his starship, desperately searching for some relief from the never ending job of living. But a deadly attack and crash landing on an isolated and dangerous planet force him into a desperate struggle for his life.

Surviving the bizarre, deadly terrain and venomous creatures won't be easy. Assaulted at every turn, Rik encounters an alien artifact that leads him down a rabbit hole of discovery and intrigue. Standing together with artificial intelligences and the insect-like race that built them against a common enemy could result in a deadly battle and the end of Rik. Or maybe it's just the beginning...
