Met with the mac daddy Tampa Bay talk show host Jack Harris this morning and gave him an ARC of my newest novel as I promised Glenn Beck. Waiting for feedback from both of them. Still targeting September 1 as a release date.
Political corruption. Cyber and financial manipulation. Islamic terror. All orchestrated by evil empire builders to establish a Caliphate. Intrigue, power, deception, heroes, villains… what else would you want?
Much research with Muslims of different colors was done, and I hope I strike a good balance between “good” and “bad” Muslims. Radical Islamic terrorists are thugs who use their bastardization of Islam to push their own agenda—in the same manner as all conquerors and dictators throughout history.
Writing this scared the bejezus out of me, and it still does. If you look at current events with the lens I place in front of your eyes, I’m sure you’ll also find a few of the intertwining storylines to be frightening.

This is about my newest novel, Renaissance.
Renaissance is not about the Renaissance; it’s about a man—and a world—that undergoes a renaissance, a rebirth. This book is of a mixed genre but mostly an adventure, a thriller flavored with financial and political seasoning; it is tightly plotted and engagingly intricate, but interwoven with philosophical undertones.
Frankly, it’s hard to classify Renaissance in terms of genre. Besides being a business/political adventure/suspense/mystery thriller, there’s a bit of a love story. There’s a touch of highly feasible fantasy and a lot about an intense battle between superior forces. There’s stupidity and innovation and manipulation, but mostly it’s an engaging and complex story about a man’s growth, struggle, his cleverness and…well, here’s the brief synopsis:

Robert Curry is a colorful college professor near Washington D.C. with a unique philosophy about the universe—one that happens to be true.… Continue reading
In this political thriller, Robert Curry is unexpectedly put in a position to save the world from imminent nuclear destruction. Given the task of returning to the past and rewriting history, he must first gain enough financial and political power to be able to prevent the series of accidents and manipulations that led to the apocalypse. But he isn’t the only power trying to affect the outcome. In an epic battle, competing energies of cosmic strengths collide in a complex and electrifying weave of plot twists and turns. This wild ride finally explodes in a climax you will not see coming.
Renaissance is fast-paced thriller with unexpected twists and turns, threads that keep weaving themselves into a tapestry of intrigue, power, betrayal, and courage. It’s also a love story that spans three lifetimes: the same lifetimes, three times.
Robert Curry developed a theory about the origin of life: existence is the mind of the intelligent cosmic matter that expanded in the original “Big Bang” to form the current universe. Everything that is, was. Not only is the tangible world a re-configured state of the original Matter, but the intangible world is as well: intangibles such as love, hate, jealousy, and… Continue reading
