Read full description of the books:
She’s everything they ever wanted. And that’s the problem.
“She” is Aramid. The year is 2080, and Human Replacement robots – or Reps – are an integrated part of society. At Ledgewood High in Los Angeles, five Advanced Robotics students build a female Rep named Aramid with plans to register her in a cut-throat competition to find the nation’s most lifelike robot. But complications quickly arise. The students illegally extract Aramid’s “morality chip.” The Rep begins to unravel, exhibiting many of the same problems as her teenage creators – lying, stealing, jealousy and, worst of all, rage, which threatens to turn her into a killing machine.
Enter Sam Phenix, a brilliant new student with a tortured soul who hopes to reverse Aramid’s rogue state and shield her from his classmates’ ulterior motives. Sam’s sensitivity draws the admiration of another student named Beth. The two of them enter into a tentative relationship while emerging as guardians for Aramid. Against all odds, the Rep begins to improve, developing feelings of love, consciousness, and a longing to sleep like real people. In her desire to become human, Aramid discovers her life’s purpose – an explosive secret that even Sam doesn’t know about.
Unfortunately, Sam and Beth’s reclamation efforts may be too late. Authorities are closing in on Aramid’s trail, intent on destroying her. Will she live long enough to fulfill her dream? Their pursuit sets up a shocking ending in this riveting sci-fi thriller whose characters face a web of moral dilemmas with no easy answers.

Read information about the authorSome of my earliest memories involve books -- not just reading them, but writing them. They totaled well over a hundred. Story books, comic books, maze books, even a world atlas about countries that existed only in my head, in that same space where I imagined a wide expanse of readers beyond my mom. After gravitating toward visual media as an undergrad, I earned a Master of Fine Arts from USC's School of Cinema-TV, where I won a student Emmy for my documentary thesis film, Taxi Dancer. After film school, I wrote several bad screenplays and directed a marginal feature (it sold in Slovakia and got into four festivals you never heard of) that left me heavily in debt. Realizing I needed a career, I turned to television, which has taken me on some amazing journeys for networks like A&E, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, Fox Sports, VH1, Spike, Travel Channel, Science Channel, Fox Sports and AMC Networks.
With TV as my "day job," I never lost sight of my dream to become an author. I began to write freelance articles on the side, first for the Los Angeles Times, then for media outlets like Huffington Post. In 2012, my first book was published: High Fives, Pennant Drives, and Fernandomania: A Fan’s History of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Glory Years, 1977-1981 (Santa Monica Press). Based on audio tapes I recorded of Dodger games from my youth, it looks back at the Dodgers' last glory era through the radio calls of Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully. It was chosen as one of the top baseball books of 2012 by the Daily News and earned praise from the LA Times, ESPN Radio, Fox Sports, NBC Sports, CBS Radio, American Public Media and Yahoo!
In 2013, Perseus Books / Argo Navis published my first book of fiction: Skinny White Freak, a "coming of rage" Young Adult novel set in 1970s Malibu about a teenager working up the courage to confront a camp bully. The book’s story was inspired by my childhood. Like the protagonist Adam, I was a gangly, pasty-skinned kid, making me an easy target for ridicule, especially in the uber-tan, surfer-dude culture that defined the SoCal of my youth. Tapping my drawing background, I also created the 65 illustrations in Skinny White Freak.
My next book, 10,000 Steps A Day In L.A.: 52 Walking Adventures (Santa Monica Press) came out in the Fall of 2015. It was borne out of my obsession to obtain 10,000 daily steps on my pedometer -- a goal I noticed was shared by a lot of Fitbit-wearing friends. It occurred to me that, while there have been books written about 10,000 steps as a healthy lifestyle, no one had penned a book that mapped out 10,000-step itineraries in Los Angeles -- or any city, for that matter. This was the perfect excuse for me to fill this void, as it would also scratch my longtime itch to write a book about my favorite walks in my hometown while debunking the notion that Los Angeles is a city hostile to pedestrians.
My most current book, Aramid (World Castle Publishing), is my first sci-fi novel. It is set in the year 2080, when humanistic robots are an ingrained part of society. When a high school class of advanced robotics students are tasked with creating their own robot in a nationwide contest, things go horribly wrong after they try to retro-engineer the 'bot to fit their own selfish agendas.
