Eight connected novels in alternate history² are in rapid progress.
I have set them in California, China, and France, from 1973 to 2023, with backstories to the 1860s.
You could safely describe my double tetralogy as murder mysteries, long-term love stories, introspective kaleidoscopes, philosophical broodings, adventure stories, and multi-family chronicles—salted with satire, yet highly moral.
Characters and situations are vivid. Plotlines are intricate and full of surprises. Famous books and movies have been adroitly mined.
Much is symbolic. Much happens offstage.
Theme: Man proposes, God disposes.
