What is reality? What is consciousness? What have we developed from? And, more importantly, what are we evolving into?
These are at the core of The Fifth Floor, my latest release. The story of Lara, who is told she is sixteen, from Wichita, Kansas, and she’s killed her family with a butcher knife.
She doesn’t think so.
As her mind and sometimes her body, go from various realities and timelines, she can’t figure out what is real and what isn’t. Where does she come from?
And then there is Lukas, a boy her age who walks into a crowded marketplace in Israel, a bomb strapped around his body, but instead of detonating it, he sits down and announces he’s hungry. Why is here? What is he looking for?
If you’ve been watching Westworld, you’re seeing an example of what is in this book. The search for what is true consciousness. What does it mean to be human?
In a departure from my normal style of writing, The Fifth Floor mixes points of view, voice and time. I hope you enjoy!
Nothing but good times ahead!
