When Nick Hall wakes up in a dumpster–bloodied, without a memory, and hearing voices in his head–he knows things are bad. But they’re about to get far worse. Because he’s being hunted by a team of relentless assassins. Soon Hall discovers that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, and he now has two astonishing abilities. He can surf the web using thoughts alone. And he can read minds. But who inserted the implants? And why? And why is someone so desperate to kill him?
As Hall races to find answers, he comes to learn that far more is at stake than just his life. Because his actions can either catapult civilization to new heights–or bring about its total collapse.
Extrapolated from actual research on thought-controlled web surfing, Mind’s Eye is a smart, roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing, and sometimes chilling, possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.

This or That?
Print or Ebook?
Both! I love print books beyond all else, but I have so many of them I’ve run out of shelves and boxes. I love the feel of a book. Holding it and being able to access any page instantly. But I love the convenience of Ebooks. I can have any one of millions of books delivered to me in an instant, and on long trips, I can carry thousands of books on an object that weighs a few ounces and can fit in a pocket.
Regular or Diet?
Diet. Alas, I have always struggled with my weight (although I’ve read that diet drinks make you hungrier so they don’t help you in the least)
Coke or Pepsi?
Coke, if I had to make that choice. But I’m addicted to a Pepsi product, Diet Mountain Dew.
Horror or Romance?
I love romance in my life, but I have to admit to not being a romance person with respect to literature. But I’m not a horror person either. I guess I’m science fiction and thrillers, like my own work.
Summer or Winter?
Summer. I love tennis and baseball, and I’ve never played any winter sports. I moved to San Diego, so that should tell everyone something 🙂
City or Country?
City to visit, but I love space. I especially loves forests.
PC or Mac?
PC. I’m convinced Mac is better, but I’m a creature of habit, and began with a PC. (As you know, it’s really hard to teach an old Doug new tricks)
Beach or Pool?
Beach. I love body surfing waves. Waves are the most incredible things.
Cats or Dog?
I’m a dog person. I have two of them.
Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook. I just don’t get Twitter at all. I know it’s me.
