The Series — When Seas Collide
I developed When Seas Collide with three goals in mind: to create intrigue and mystery, to provoke thought, and to have some fun. The first and second elements, to create intrigue and mystery, and to provoke thought, are central in the series; they join in a Triangle Dance with humor. You will find aspects of literary writing amidst commercial fiction. I veil and hide some areas—the work is also a treasure hunt that many of us enjoyed in our youth. But it’s not so “deep” that we can’t enjoy ourselves in a story with layered discoveries: one wrapped box may contain another wrapped box.
The characters and the story take pokes at “The System” (more on that in the story itself) and challenges molds and silos of thought. Perspectives on The System may take you places you did not expect. I invite the reader to think about contemporary issues that form part of the work. While the thoughts going into the work have been in process within me for many years, current events seem apt for the work in more ways than I had expected.
