The first part of the prophecy fulfilled, Alastair and Lisa should be happy upon their return to Scotland. Yet too soon reality catches up with them.
While Lisa struggles with the sudden gain of power and the possibility of being pregnant. As if that wasn’t enough the man who raped and brutalized her is still out there and worse even, he knows she is back.
While helping Lisa to adjust to her new power, Alastair has to deal with the fact that they need to find and resurrect Arthur, his half-brother. Most would think a reunion like that a joyous occasion, but not for Alastair who deeply believes Arthur to be a rapist and a traitor.
Yet there is no way around it, only Arthur can bring forth Excalibur, and they need the Sword of Light to fulfill the prophecy.
Mostly the book is about what the future might look like if a person hungry for power, with the ability to manipulate gains control of a country, desperate for change. I chose America because at the moment they are in that danger the most. However, the same story could play out in most European countries as well. Actually, in countries all over the world.
Humans are habitual creatures, any social change has always come the hard way to us. As is evident all throughout history. The greater the change, the greater the violence with which it was born.
And as with all the other changes in history, there was and is again a slow build up. In the last 50 – 100 years, the call for human rights, equality and acceptance of diversity has grown louder and louder as well as more forcefully. For example: When my husband was a teen, there were people belonging to the LGBTQ community, but it wasn’t talked about. It was ignored. It didn’t interrupt the habitual life of those not belonging, making those part of that community the outsiders. The ones not able to show, act and behave as who they truly were. The same goes for women, who had to fight for their right to vote, work, own property. Their need for equality disrupted the habitual day to day life. Now they are everywhere. People with colored skin, those part of a different religion, and many different sexual lifestyles forced their way into the habitual life of all who considered themselves normal.
To me, diversity is and always has been a good thing. But I grew up with a mother bound to a wheelchair who showed me first hand that there is no difference in capability. Yet, for the same reason, I have always seen how hard it is for far too many to truly accept diversity, instead of just acting as if they do.
Humans have another habit, one that will one day lead to their destruction. Blame… When times get rough, economics down, and unemployments and crime rates up, we are looking for someone to blame. Another thing you can find all throughout history. You combine both habits, and what you get is an explosive combination. A deadly combination. Especially if there is a person who knows how to exploit it.
As many times before the world is on the edge of such a combination and in danger of having it exploited. That’s what The Diaries of Kairie Lawless is really about. The changes of the past century have brought forth greatness. My children for example, grow up in a world where diversity is known, spoken about and; at least in my house, accepted. However, at the same time they grow up in a world were old fashioned thinking and values, create a rift as big as the Grand Canyon. Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against people with faith, or belonging to a religion. As long as they keep in mind that times have changed since the Bible or whatever scripture they follow, was written. Religion itself is a good thing, but just like a weapon it can be a danger in the wrong hands or minds. Sadly I more often find religion in the wrong hands, then in the right ones. No matter if Christian, Hindu, Muslim or any other believe group.
Our world is slowly splitting into two sides, those who feel like someone not believing the same way they do, having the same sexual orientation as they do and so on, are a threat to society. And on the other side, those who belong in that category and want nothing more than be who they are, without having to hide.
If nothing else, the elections this year showed that rift, this gigantic split and the willingness to blame. It doesn’t matter if Donald Trump wins the elections, he has already won in other ways. He widened the rift, made it more prominent and he made obvious how many are willing to push others into that rift. Born out of the hatred and bigotry, The Diaries of Kairie Lawless were born. Telling you the story of a kid that grows up as that hatred takes on shape, forms into an entity and by the time she reaches adulthood has turned into a living weapon.
The world has been at this point many times before and each time it ended with bloodshed worse than the last time. I don’t like bloodshed, and I believe that even the vilest mind, would hesitate to push that button that will completely destroy our world. However, there are things worse than death.
This book tells of that world. One were being part of what makes our world diverse, is a crime. Where tolerating, supporting and accepting diversity is just as much a crime, if not worse.Where labels become names and designations. It tells of a world that is far too possible and should never come to pass. But most of all, of one woman willing to sacrifice everything to fight that world.

The Diaries of Kairie Lawless are the expression of my fears if Donald Trump becomes elected President of the United States. Most of it is and exaggeration, fears taken to an extreme, yet still they are fears and I have a reason to have them. A reason I would like to explain, and maybe some will see that my fantasy isn’t an impossibility.
Like my main character Kairie I grew up with an agnostic mind set. I don’t claim a religion of my own, but belief that there is more then what we can see or explain with science. I accept and tolerate anyone’s believes, life style, sexual orientation or handicap without judging them by it. I judge people by their actions and how they interact with me. Acceptance and tolerance by the way, is not the same as liking and understanding it, but that’s just something to throw out there. In any case, since I grew up in Germany and my grandparents where born and raised during Hitler’s reign, I also know a little about how people felt back them. In addition to what you learn in school and through being interested in history. And as much as I hate to compare a modern man with Hitler, I can’t help but see the similarities in this year’s elections.
When Hitler came into the picture in Germany, the country was devastated after WW1, the victors had all the power and the Germans felt like they had nothing. Well, in many ways they didn’t, but that’s no reason to start another war. However, the Germans were scared of the often violent actions of the victors, they were starving, had not right of weapons and thought themselves defenceless, morals were down, crime rates and unemployment rates were up. It was the perfect breeding ground for hatred, because it was already there, already smoldering in the ruins of a country, it just needed some fuel.
America is scared of religious extremist’s terror attacks, and with god reason. The never ending flood of immigrants and refugees has impacted economics, crime, unemployment and much more and made the country a not so great place. People are sick and tired of paying taxes to support a corrupt and already overplayed government. They feel threatened by the rising crime rates and feel they need a weapon to protect themselves and when the government talks about restricting those weapons, fear rises. The older generations fear the rapid and to them radical changes in society, especially in regard to the LGBTQ movement. It’s the perfect breeding ground for hatred, all it needs is fuel. Then Donald Trump comes along.
In Germany Hitler boldly pointed out the problems of the country and addressed the fears, promising them to fix them, to make Germany Great Again. He promised to replace the corrupt government, to take back their right to take up arms, to increase the police and military force to protect folk and country from criminals and outside threats. He vowed to lower unemployment rates by creating jobs, and stabilize economics.
I hear Donald Trump making the same promises, taking up the same vows and use the same double meaning language as Hitler has. The only difference is Hitler blamed most of the problems on the Jew’s residing in Germany. He had only singled out one group, or has he? Sadly no, it’s a misconception to say it was only the Jew’s. It was mostly the Jew’s, yes, but there were disabled people, mentally challenged ones, gays, and many others that didn’t fit the picture of a perfect German in Hitler’s mind.
Now, Donald Trump is not Hitler and I don’t belief he ever will be. Donald Trump is not a raging lunatic with a God complex. I actually think Donald Trump is a very intelligent and cunning man. I truly think / fear he will make good on his promises if he is elected. The thing is, so did Hitler before he turned it all into something else.
Yet, like with the President in my book, I don’t think that Donald Trump would go and open up camps to extinguish those he considers less valuable citizens. After all he is a business man. It’s bad business to kill cheap labour forces.
I believe that he will make America Great again, just not the way most think. Neither he nor Hillary Clinton have been convicted of a crime, but both have been accused of many. Do I think Hillary Clinton is a better choice? NO! Which is the true problem. To me the American People are screwed one way or the other. Hillary will run America into the ground and it might never get up again. Trump will get power hungry and turn the things that made America Great again, against those Americans he doesn’t consider worthy to be American.
Based on those observations, believes and similarities I built my dystopian world, led by Lando Rud. I just hope I’m wrong.
Meet Lucy, the female main character of my newest novel, one that is giving me the hardest time ever when it comes to deciding in what genre it falls. Why? Because it’s a totally new and unusual way of telling a story. It’s suspense, crime with a hint of romance, but most of all it’s breaking the fourth wall/dimension.
Lucy is not only the main character who tells her story but you – the reader- are inside her head and she knows it. Worse than finding yourself in her head is that she isn’t happy to have you there. She will say and do almost anything to get you to go away, yet is compelled to tell her story. Be prepared to laugh over her behavior or simply jump over the bold parts and enjoy the story without her annoying interruptions. Visitor in my Mind – The Missing Twin is now available for pre-order on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IJT3X48 for an introduction price of 1.99
Have you ever gone to one of those comedy shows, where the comedian stands on the stage and makes fun of you and anyone else in the crowd? Yet instead of getting angry, threatening with fists for the insult or insulting back, you laugh. Why? I have no f***ing clue. To me, it’s a riddle. One I have observed many times over and that inspired me to experiment a little last year when I participated for the first time in NaNoWriMo (2015).
A story, a mystery and crime where the main character interacts with you, the reader. My son calls it breaking the fourth dimension. Lucy Cain is one hell of a complicated woman, with a hidden temper. A temper, you the reader get to see when nobody else in the story does. Because you are the visitor in her mind, as she and Sam Wilcox meet over something as simple as a building project, that quickly turns into the search for a woman looking like Lucy and somehow it seems, she might be related to her.
The problem is, Lucy is not happy with you intruding, at first. Imagine Deadpool meets Jeff Dunham as they play Sherlock Holmes.
Now available for pre-order with an introduction price of 1.99 US https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IJT3X48
One of my beta readers said: “I never laughed so much reading a mystery”
another told me: “I never realized how funny it is being yelled at.”
My husband said: “It’s funny and captivating, but most of all engaging.” but of course his opinion is biased. But to me it’s a compliment because usually, he doesn’t like what I write, it’s too mushy in his mind.
