The Robbins are determined to get their money back—and get even.
When an arrogant and selfish 26-year old, Ken Paulson, inherited a large national jewelry store chain, he probably shouldn’t have fired 72-year old Wayne Robbins, a brilliant engineer who helped Ken’s father build the company. And he certainly should not have stolen Robbins’ retirement funds, patents, and royalties.
But, he did.
The need to survive forces Wayne to develop a brilliant plan. Traveling the country in their motor coach, these sweet grandparents devise and execute perfect crimes. But they must overcome unexpected challenges, conspiracies, intrigue, and crossed loyalties. Finally, they must face and out-smart not only Ken Paulson but also the people they fear the most.
This may not end the way you think it will.

It shattered the sandstone barrier like it was hard candy and slammed into the docks directly in the center of downtown Garipce, driving the cutter into the shops on the other side of the street. The superstructure of… Continue reading

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
