68 VIA CONDOTTI: THE VATICAN SECRET SERVICE

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, March 29, 2019, In : New Book Release 
The three-book 68 VIA CONDOTTI series featuring Kate Keenan on special assignment with a cameo appearance by Koski and Falk simply had to be written. Years ago, when I visited and toured the Vatican, I was impressed by a nondescript entrance not far from the Spanish Steps marked simply "68 Via Condotti." Ostensibly, the extraterritorial headquarters of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, I became intrigued by rumors that the Order, with it's extensive diplomatic connections, might be hosti...

THE PRINCESS IN MY HEAD

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, September 20, 2018, In : New Book Release 

What I like best about THE PRINCESS IN MY HEAD (Aignos 2018) is that both the novel and the screenplay come together in one book.  Young readers can actively participate in the story by reading parts out loud, staging scenes and even creating their own musical. 

Two “princesses” – one in a Renaissance world and the other in modern time - are learning to lead and inspire, each in her own way.  This is a theme I visit in my adult mysteries also: the evolution of personal strength.  The her...

THINGS HEAT UP IN THE SOLAR TRIANGLE

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, July 7, 2017, In : New Book Release 
Authoring a book like THE SOLAR TRIANGLE (Savant 2017) about Koski and Falk, is a stroll down memory lane with fictional action and some punchy lines added. The saying 'nihil novi sub sole' ('there's nothing new under the sun') from the Biblical Book of Ecclesiastes, never rang so true with this, their sixth adventure. Weather control, or more specifically, solar energy control, has ancient roots. 


The Greek philosopher Plato wrote about the lost continent of Atlantis in two of his books, TIMA...

SADDAM'S PARROT TELLS ALL AT FLY-IN

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, June 12, 2017, In : New Book Release 

The idea for SADDAM'S PARROT was largely inspired by two gripping stories about parrots—the documentary film, The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill, and the well known story of Alex, the amazing parrot studied and befriended by the Harvard cognitive scientist, Irene Pepperberg.  

I should add that for most of my professional life I've been an ecologist, fascinated by the nuances of animal behavior and the ways natural systems reach tipping points and crash. I knew that the story inside me invo...

A BODILY REVELATION

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, March 5, 2017, In : New Book Release 

IN SEARCH OF SOMATIC THERAPY (Savant 2017) encapsulates the basic fundamental elements underlying dance, eurythmy and the laying on of hands—what I like to call “somatic therapy.” By that, I mean what can happen when humans come into contact with other living things. But it’s more than the somatic experience. It’s about the power to not just heal, but prevent illness and disease in a manner that’s both ancient and new. 


It is my hope that readers will come away with a new perspec...

Chicago, 1947. Private investigator "Matt" McBride runs afoul of corrupt politicians, vicious mobsters  and a trigger-happy Texan femme fatale to prove that the "suicide" of his best friend was murder.  Matt's perilous journey to track down the killer nearly dead-ends in a motor home on a collision course with a cargo plane.

THE ADVENTURES OF PURPLE HEAD, BUDDHA MONKEY AND STICKY FEET

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, December 2, 2016, In : New Book Release 

   Like many, I have fond memories of the physical and emotional excursions that took place during my childhood, adventures which required the same kind of risk-taking as the heroine in THE ADVENTURES OF PURPLE HEAD, BUDDHA MONKEY AND STICKY FEET (Savant 2016), namely Purple Head – an alien from another planet. 


   One time, I trekked deep in the woods with my best friend to a large children's slide hidden there. When we arrived, there were several goats roaming around the slide, blocking ...

FINDING KATE AND FUTURE HOLLYWOOD/BOLLYWOOD

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, September 14, 2016, In : New Book Release 

Hollywood, as I experienced it in the eighties, was already beginning to show it's age. Most of the stars who had made all the great films were either dead, retired, or locked suspended animation somewhere in between. By the time the new "Turks" began taking over, nothing was the same.  


In QUANTUM DEATH (Savant 2016), the fifth in my popular Koski and Falk series, I introduced a character named Kate Keenan, an amalgamation of the characters I met at Screenwriter's school at UCLA, whom I lea...

KOSKI & FALK #5: QUANTUM DEATH

In QUANTUM DEATH (Savant 2016), the fifth in the Koski and Falk series, the two come up against what very well may prove to be their most complex and dangerous case yet: the Quantum Death Machine.


The product of the fertile late-night imaginations of myself and co-author Raymond Gaynor, the technological "heart" of the story is based on several recent scientific theories. Their application, or, as Koski and Falk discover, "weaponization" is quite beyond anything they've ever experienced. With...

CLEOPATRA UNCONQUERED

CLEOPATRA UNCONQUERED (Savant 2015), the first of three novels in a series, imagines this scenario. Cleopatra, historically the last queen of Egypt, becomes instead the mother of an Egypto-Roman empire, th...

“Max yawned and began to stretch, stopping short when the pain in his neck shot down his arm. He walked back into his room, sat on the bed, and then lay back, pulling the sheet up to his chin. He rolled over onto his left side. His head sank deep into the pillow, and he closed his eyes. The events of the day receded into the darkness. His breathing deepened and slowed as exhaustion took over. The room was quiet. A mourning dove cooed outside his bedroom window. Just as sleep was about to ov...

Corbenic's valley lay hidden, in a corner of Lystenoys close by the sea, and it was not wholly by chance that any man found his way there, including Launcelot.

It was spring when he came; the hills of the valley were verdant, the gorse yellow all about, and the evening mists fragrant.  She was not looking for love that day…

When A. G. Hayes' new action-adventure spy book, the third in the Koski and Falk series, IMMINENT DANGER (Savant 2014) was released, I for one, didn't expect it to mirror the mood of today's times and conditions quite so vividly. In the book, a rock-star/religious extremist attempts a 9/11 "comeback" by orchestrating the mass assassination of the world's religious leaders, including the Pope, at an Easter sunrise service at the Hollywood Bowl.

When I first conceived the idea for The Lazarus Conspiracies, I wrote it as a film script under the title “The Lazarus Project.” The script tells the story of a maverick Chicago cop who is so obsessed with seeing justice done that he repeatedly breaks the rules of police conduct in order to catch the bad guys. The script was a top ten finalist in the Illinois/Chicago Screenwriting 2000 Competition.

THE DESPERATE CYCLE (Savant 2012) is Tony Tame's second dramatic novel of Jamaica, but the theme is not confined to Jamaican society. It examines the ways in which succeeding generations of people in what is loosely called "third world countries" handle, with courage, humor and resilience, the mountain of odds which history stacks against them.



This book does not treat any one participant in this "cycle" of inequality with particular distemper or sympathy. All the characters, from shifty polit...

Back in the 1930s, Americans would struggle to part with twenty-five cents in order to spend part of an afternoon at the movies trying to forget the Great Depression and the uncertain times outside the theater. Screwball comedies provided the antidote to their desolation in this difficult time in our history.



In THE LOONS (Savant 2012), I've recreated the spirit of laughable chaos reminiscent of the screwball comedies of the thirties with an eccentric family of seven DeLune cousins that neighb...

“There are keys in the river.  Life is one long river, a pretty voice sings.”

Sometime during mid-1994, I started writing essays, poems, and short stories to help me pass the O-level English exams which I had failed a couple of times in the past. I never thought I was writing pieces that would be read; rather, I began writing simply as practice for this important exam, a rite of passage to higher education in Zimbabwe.

SLAVES UNTO THEMSELVES and the need for a TRAVELER'S REST

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, June 28, 2012, In : New Book Release 

When I first started writing TRAVELER'S REST back in 2005, it wasn’t my intention of writing a book. I had spent the last year and a half writing scripts for an Atlanta production company, my first paid gig as a writer. I enjoyed writing scripts, but I longed to writing stories. Given, the similar ruthlessness of both the book publishing and film-making worlds, I felt prepared.



A screenplay doesn’t really come to life unless it is produced. If it isn’t produced, the script might as well...

Alive and Aware, Living Life as It Really Is

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, June 4, 2012, In : New Book Release 

ON MY BEHALF was never meant to be published. It was merely a journal for my venting. Nothing formal. My intent was to bring my life to light to myself and hopefully band-aid some old gaping wounds.

As I was writing, however, I had an epiphany. I thought ever-so-reluctantly: What if my story mattered to someone, even helped them to realize things about themselves that would have otherwise been swept under the rug and ignored? Wouldn’t that be worth publishing? It suddenl...

RULES OF PRIVILEGE

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, May 6, 2012, In : New Book Release 
As I mentioned just before Savant Books released my previous novel, MANIFEST INTENT, I had returned to my roots as a lawyer after my first novel, the Hawaiian thriller KANAKA BLUES.  My newest work, RULES OF PRIVILEGE, stays in that world, but strays from the environment of the big law firm into the orbit of solo practitioners, who sometimes struggle just to stay afloat. 



While the problems of large and small firms often are radically different, all lawyers, no matter the size of their firms,...

AMMON'S HORN (Savant 2011) asks implicitly:  When male verses female ego, in a case of love verses lust, which is the greater jackass?

MY TWO WIVES AND THREE HUSBANDS

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, March 1, 2011, In : New Book Release 

Not many people have had multiple wives AND husbands, as I have had, so MY TWO WIVES AND THREE HUSBANDS may be an eye-opener. Mae West once said to me, “I owe it all to dirty living!” and in her case, as well as mine, it’s not just funny, it’s true. That is, if “dirty” means “unconventional."

I believe people were meant to enjoy life, and I've tried to share my sense of joy, discovery and wonder in this, my love story. In addition to my human loves, I was also been ensnared by t...

Perilous Times - Perilous Panceas

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, November 29, 2010, In : New Book Release 
I think of Perilous Panacea as being a techno-thriller in the genre popularized by Tom Clancy (note:  I have no illusions about being another Clancy—at least at this time). It is based on today’s headlines, about nuclear terror set in the not-too-distant future, involving Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. It entails stolen plutonium and uranium and the clandestine manufacture of atomic bombs within the U.S. and all the chaos emanating from such an incident.

Introducing MY UNBORN CHILD

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, August 19, 2010, In : New Book Release 
Twenty years ago, the seminal idea for MY UNBORN CHILD rushed into my mind with unprecedented ferocity when I read an ad in my hometown newspaper. A local parish priest offered a reward to “the first scientist of any discipline who can prove in the cold light of pure science that a little person begins to be a person at some moment other than the time of his or her conception in the womb.” My belief in reincarnation was so deeply ingrained that I was offended to the core by the priest’s...

I am thoroughly excited about the release of THE BAHRAIN CONSPIRACY. No other novel describing terrorist activities has even considered the heinous scheme depicted in the novel, yet it is an entirely possible plan. That is what makes it so thrilling; the realism, the threat, the on-going war against terrorism contributes to the believability of the story.
