Some say change is good, some say a new beginning or a fresh new start is great…but all at the same time! I love a challenge, especially weaving my characters in and out of various fictional plots. But weaving my time in and out of various projects has been a challenging task unto itself.  After publishing my forth and final novel of The Simon Tetralogy, I immediately began a new series, starring Maxine Ford as the female protagonist. Some of  you may remember that Max was introduced in the second novel, Noble’s Quest, and has become a beloved character by many. It only seemed fitting that she should have a stage of her own, starting with Climatized, the first in a series of Max Ford Thrillers.

In the midst of my writing, I also managed to sell, buy, and move into a new home in the States, while orchestrating the modifications and a move in Italy, a radio interview on America Out Loud, a book signing at Barnes & Noble, a TV interview on Home & Castle, traveling three quarters of the way around the world to return to Italy via San Francisco and Hong Kong, and redesigning a new website…Whew! But enough about me, Max has been busy too!

After resigning her post at the States Intelligence Agency, Max declares her independence as she bursts onto the Washington scene as a private investigator. She displays her usual no-holds-barred style showing no obeisance to the elite politicians. Right out of the starting gate, she finds herself in the cauldron of mystery, murder, and mayhem. All of her clients are warned to prepare themselves for the truth…at all costs.

In Climatized,  Max is hired by the wife of a prominent senator to determine the cause of his untimely death. It leads her to discover that three world-renowned scientists had been killed days before they were scheduled to testify before the late senator’s investigative committee. Meanwhile, a fourth scientist has gone missing. Max determined he is the key to unearthing the motives behind the deaths. Following the many twists and turns, Max and her associate, Jackson Monroe uncover a powerful organization responsible for the killings. The challenges to the global warming “cottage industry” heats up putting into question the alleged science behind the widely accepted climate change dogma. Cogent evidence is provided to the president, forcing him to make a crucial decision—to cover up a diabolical plot—or bring down a multi-trillion-dollar world-wide industry.
