What's the 'A Vested Interest' series about?

The FREE book Immortality Gene. Immortality can be achieved. People ask us "What are your books about?" often. It's a little difficult to explain because we cover multiple genres. One of our reviewers wrote:

    Not everyone who appears good is actually good—some have dark secrets"It is a story of corporate jealousy at the highest levels, greed, spite, vengence, advanced techonology, medicine, love and betrayal, and the very essence of life itself.

    WOW - that is a lot to cover in one book! Read this book - you will be glad you did."
Thank you Ancient Warlock. That pretty well sums it up. But that only refers to the first book... so here's a list of things we cover in the series in the 12 books so far (some not yet published).

    An ancient message reveals startling secrets leading to stones, stars and solutions
  • Through genetic therapy, immortality may be possible and real for 98%.
  • Through nanotechnology, force fields could be created.
  • For each of us, there is a partner who is a perfect match and several near matches. You'll know when you find your perfect match, and think ou'll know when you find a near match.
  • Ancient documents indicate the Earth has been visited by benign aliens who helped Man and left, because they were not gods, after setting up markers.

  • For trust to exist there can be no secrets. Not everyone who appears bad is bad.Forget governments, there is a secret organisation which is the real directing power on Earth. Politicians take the blame when things go wrong and make good targets to shoot at. There is always someone unhappy at the 'leaders.'
  • With the right triggers, weather could be controlled, but that control would be tenuous.
  • The Earth is doomed - but not yet.
  • Faster than light travel is possible.
  • Teleportation exists. For the moment, Man can't control it, but we have some ideas.
  • There are times when taking a leap of faith is the only way.Telepathy exists, and we know how it works.
  • Psychics may not, after all, be entirely fake.
  • It's possible to totally, and safely convert matter to energy but to do it, a catalyst is needed. Man can't create the catalyst yet. It doesn't occur naturally. There are at least 27 samples of it on Earth 20 of which are lost.
  • Just as there are benign aliens, there are hostile aliens happy to be 'gods'. They would take advantage of man.
  • Everyone has regrets and retribution inevitably followsThree days after death stem cells become active again. Under the right conditions a corpse could re-animate. Zombies?

  1. Hi! Does the frequency of updates of your domain depend on specific things or you work on blog articles when you have an inspiration or write blog entries when you have enough time on it? Waiting forward to hear from you.

  2. It's an 'as we think of it' process. I have three blogs - links at the right

  3. will the series ever end? I really enjoyed it at the beginning but now at book 10 I'm ready for a nice well-rounded conclusion!

  4. You may have to wait a while. There are 8 'A Vested Interest' books plus a prequel 'Blood of the Rainbow' Out soon will be a sequel to the prequel - It's a big book and may well be split. Then we have Dust to Dust in the pipeline. We have another book outlined and part written 'String to the Stars.'

    In theory the series could keep going until the year 7,141 when the Earth is destroyed. Since it's set in the near future that gives us a bit of space to write about.
