When Babel Floods

A vast man-made resort island offers permanent relief to a drought-stricken continent. As corporate interests clash with archeological concerns, dangerous forces threaten the future of the island — and the globe. As a legendary deity seems to awaken, mankind’s hopes rest in the hands of a journalist, a janitor, and a travel agent.

Meet Daniel Mainwaring

Thirty years ago I cut my teeth in writing fiction and enjoyed both sci-fi and historical fiction.A strange combination right? I agree. As time went on I found myself drawn away from fiction and spent many years working on factual matters related to travel and business. It kept me very busy and I enjoyed the research and the writing. But in recent years, I’ve slowed down on the steady work of “fact” and slowly returned to my first love: fiction.

I must confess that I have a certain devilish very dry sense of humor. This manifests itself in my books. I don’t strive to write comedy — far from it — but if you’re seeking something absolutely dry and heavy on science then you’re looking in the wrong place. If you’re looking for something with an actual scientific basis, careful research and just a dash of dry humor then I may be your man.

I’m interested in concepts but fundamentally I am far more interested in people. If a volcano erupts, that is interesting. But I’m more interested in how people react to it. I’m fortunate in that I have travelled the world and seen the proverbial good, bad and ugly. That is what drives my stories.

The Sun God’s Heir: Return (Book One)

cover

René Gilbert awoke shackled to the wall of a four-foot-high ship’s slave hold.

The filthy bilgewater splashed over his head and then receded. Under sail.

The North Atlantic, 1672. To survive, René must escape a slave ship in the midst of the ocean.

Focus on the first thing, his fencing master’s voice rose from within his memory.

“Don’t drown,” he thought. His second thought was the memory of a wooden rod speeding toward him for his sarcasm.

Rapier sharp pulse pounding action across the warp and weave of the seventeenth century. Sailing ships, pirates, and past lives contend in this first book of an award-winning trilogy.

Read The Sun God’s Heir: Return (Book One) and set sail into a time where love and life were precious and easily taken away. Where the distance to one’s enemies was measured by the length of a rapier’s blade.
