Changing genre was not a difficult decision. It sort of crept up on me. Working in this new genre is not so easy. It takes a lot more research. I don’t know much about technology, but I have to learn a few things before I can make the little bit of sci fi that I am bringing in, believable.
So, now you know my next book is partly futuristic. One thing that must always be kept in mind is that fiction is fiction. It does not have any prophetic value. It comes purely from the imagination of the writer and there was no great revelation involved.
Having a closer look, something was stolen in Rome. Something of great value to the owner. The thief gets into trouble and my hero, who appears in almost all my stories, Anton Joubert steps in and rescues the boy. Then he introduces Andrew Stephens to Verushka. Fireworks follow, but Verushka cannot afford to get involved in romance, so she flees to Alaska.
In the mean time, dark forces are at work to retrieve the tiny brown box, stolen from a cathedral in Rome. The information in this little box reveals ancient secrets of conspiracy and the manipulation of world affairs, even to this day.
And then the little horn of Daniel 7 and Revelation 13 steps in.
