Read full description of the books:
What if there were an app that could understand your every want and need? What if millions of people around the world adopted it and used it for every aspect of their daily lives? And what if the information gathered by this app was used to manipulate the populace into believing that enemies were threatening them, that everything they held dear was under attack and if they didn’t act, everything they valued would be lost? How long do you think it would take for a society to implode?
Kim Ishida has developed the world’s leading predictive social networking app. In no time, her technology makes the iconic MyPhone indispensable to millions of people across the planet. But unbeknownst to Kim, centers of power are working behind the scenes to use this technology for their own evil ends. Feeding the fear and hatred of the masses, dormant political and cultural hostilities are revived, and erupt into violence and war worldwide.
In the aftermath, Kim’s focus is singular: she must kill Fortune Teller. Driven to her journey by a burden that will not relent, she will not stop until Fortune Teller is dead.
But Fortune Teller knows she is coming…
"The Social Event is the 21st century's 1984 - a compelling read of a very near and frighteningly possible future." - Lauren Walden Rabb, Author of Interview with Mrs. Berlinski and The Rise and Fall of the Trevor Whitney Gallery

Read information about the authorI grew up in Healdsburg, California, in the heart of Sonoma County wine country, where in my youth I spent many summer days along the Russian River. I also lived and worked in Sonoma County for most my life. As you might expect, having spent so many years in a wine region, I do appreciate a glass of good wine now and then.
I am an avid reader and enjoy a broad range of fiction and non-fiction work. Though, I have a weakness for speculative fiction that favors dystopian and post-apocalyptic themes. My background and career in a previous life was in the field of Information Technology, where early on I started using a clunky, slow service that connected computers belonging to a small number of universities and corporations. It was then called ARPANET. Eventually it grew and caught on, and ultimately became known as the Internet, or the World Wide Web. I have used, followed and adopted evolving technology ever since. This may be why it has played such a significant role in my debut novel.
In 2006, I moved the desert southwest with my lovely wife, Gail, where we enjoy the warm, sunny days and hot summer nights of the northern Sonora Desert, and the beautiful region surrounding Tucson, Arizona.
