This is my latest book. Some surprising advances have been made in recent years and I believe that the time will soon be upon us when fiction becomes reality. Android Affair is about the thrilling adventures of Anne Miller, both during her tenure as a policewoman and later when she retires.
Inspector Anne Miller is called out late at night to a road traffic accident and finds herself in the middle of a mystery. A man has been knocked over by a car and appears to be dead, but is it a man or is it a robot?
The mystery deepens when the body disappears from the coroner’s, never to be seen again. In its place is some strange message from the ‘powers that be’ to leave well alone. Although she wants to pursue the inquiry she is told in no uncertain terms to stay out of it.
She hears no more about it until Some years later she retires and the case comes up again. A colleague gives her some extraordinary information and is killed shortly afterwards. Will she follow it up or let the matter rest?

Millions of visitors head for the Rocky Mountains at Yellowstone to marvel at the steaming geysers, bubbling mud pots, and thermal pools, few realising the scale and depth of this natural wonder. A super volcano is not formed above ground, but rather below it. This natural phenomenon is actually a Caldera which is formed after a volcano erupts, blowing the top of the mountain away. The resulting depression fills first with lava and then with water which forms lakes and thermal pools. The Caldera at Yellowstone extends for seventy miles by thirty miles and is approximately six miles deep.
Scientists know it exploded at least twice, at 600,000 year intervals; the last time 640.000 years ago, so it is now overdue for another eruption. If it does blow, it will spread billions of tons of rock and dust into the atmosphere blocking out the sun's rays and temperatures on earth will plummet, creating a global-wide nuclear winter. No crops would grow and millions will starve to death. The last time this happened nothing larger than a dog survived. As a measure of how much dust will be expelled, two meters of dust was deposited in Iowa which is a thousand miles away.
Reports of activity in this region with small volcanic movements happening more and more frequently. The earth in the region of the lakes has risen out of the ground by a meter, giving rise to speculation that the magma chambers far below the surface are moving, creating unheard of pressures which could ultimately blow in one enormous explosion. If this happens it will be catastrophic for all mankind and it is possible that out of the world’s population only a few thousand people might survive.
The Survivalists is the story of what one man and his friends undertake to stay alive.
This book is a revised version of a previous book.
