prose

In the last ten years,  I've written two full-length manuscripts..

The first is a middle-grade novel about a robot and the second is a memoir about living life as a creative adventure, come hell or high water.

Chillbots™: The Friends You Can Buy

A novel for ages 12-15 about a prankster and his robot

Chillbots™: The Friends You Can Buy takes place one lurch into the future, in an unnamed city. Emīls is a fourteen-year old liar and thief in need of a friend. A mega-corporation selects his school to test their brand new products, a line of robots designed for teenagers called Chillbots . Emīls soon discovers that robot friendship is packed into a neural implant and delivered via a hypodermic needle. He tells no one, not even the amazing Jennifer, until his robo-friend Donovan draws him deeply into disaster.

As yet unpublished in its original English, the book was popular with readers in Latvian translation, published by Zvaigzne in Riga, 2011.
