HOPE IS NOT A BLACK AND WHITE RAINBOW by Harold Lea Brown

I believe “Hope is Not a Black and White Rainbow” speaks to a global shift that has been slowly transforming the makeup of individuals, families and communities, and the struggle to embrace a new world and release the old world beliefs and values that have outlived their usefulness.  The story explores the growing global village of interracial/mixed heritage families and the blurred lines of long held beliefs that we live in a very black and white world.  Racism is man-made, while a world rich in diversity is God-given, as is free-will—the ability to choose the kind of world we want to live in.

 

DEVIL'S VALLEY JUSTICE by Harold Lea Brown

When asked, Harold said "DVJ is a story about two inter generational border families seeking justice.  But at its very core it's about  a widower father running out of time to save any semblance of a family, burdened by the family secret he carries."

 

DEADLY INVISIBLE ENEMIES TECHNO-SERIES by Harold Lea Brown

"When I think about Deadly Invisible Enemies, I think about CSI meets The Fugitive in Cyberspace," Harold said when recently asked. 

 The Deadly Invisible Enemies Series follows one man in his search for the truth, as he evades deadly invisible enemies trying to hunt him down and kill him.

 

20/20: SEARCH FOR INDEPENDENCE by Harold Lea Brown

 

In 2020, the United States’ relationship with Canada is tense/tenuous, and their place/ role in the world is diminished. The Prime Minister of Canada and Chinese President are aggressively pursuing a China-Canada Energy Alliance Agreement, centered on the most actively traded commodity in the world–oil.

"Think about it, you're in your twenties, you complete the project started with your deceased  grandfather  and realize you hold the keys to global independence, only to discover, other people know it too," Harold said.

 

WHITE WATER RESCUE by Harold Lea Brown

 

"I can't imagine anything more devastating than having a fight with someone you love only to realize it will be the last time you will ever see them," Harold said.

In White Water Rescue, Taylor, barely eighteen, a young woman beyond her years, struggles with her sense of purpose and growing feelings of emptiness since her father, mentor and coach, died. The day he left on his last assignment Taylor argued with him about her plans to switch to white water kayaking in pursuit of Olympic gold. Their good-bye was tense and unemotional. It was the last time she saw her father alive, and those final moments haunt her. Her self-imposed penance is to qualify for the Olympic kayaking team, but she loses her bid to qualify.

 

DESTINY OF TAR AND FEATHERS by Harold Lea Brown

 

"Embarrassed by who you are because of  your family--your heritage, some people might laugh, but, we all know deep down, we have had those moments.  In some cases, it's a very deep impactful moment.  Destiny, explores this as a son and father and family, struggle to find a way forward to connect, before it's too late." A Metis lawyer accepts no favors in his drive to prove he fits in the white man’s world. He learns that his partnership hinges on a U.S. corporations' plans to exploit the tar sand, using a U.S. oil refinery with U.S. Presidential backing.  But he discovers he is the token lawyer in the firm--the bigger plans involve his estranged settlement and family, as he learns his Settlement Elder father is dying from the impact of the projects he's asked to defend.

SECRETS HAVE DEADLY CONSEQUENCES, ESPECIALLY IN A DIGITAL WORLD.

 

What if all things that happen in life—good and evil—are not random or coincidence, but really intentional cyber events?  Kevin Albright is relocated to a foreign country, with a new identity.   Trapped between the living and the dead, he’s a lone wolf left to fight evil global cyber forces, and his past life demons, alone.  His unrelenting search for the truth about what really happened to his family puts him on a collision course with enemies from his past as he uncovers a plot that will bring world superpowers to their knees.

 

With no home country and uncertainty about whom he can trust, Kevin develops an elaborate plan to catch the deadly invisible enemies and stop their planned attack.  As his plan unfolds, on the dark side of the World Wide Web, he learns the full scale of evil’s resurrection—the reach and power of the Internet places the fate of ten percent of the world’s population and seven world leaders in his hands.  With the minutes counting down he unleashes a “cyber rendition,” luring evil into his world and putting himself in its cross-hairs.

Kevin’s world is turned upside down, and the search for answers only leaves more questions and doubts.  The hunt takes him deep into an invisible underworld where he teams up with a woman who shares a common haunting past and a remarkable resemblance to his wife.  But she is hiding a secret, a secret that could kill him.  He knows the only way to locate and force the killers out into the open is to match their ruthlessness and cunning—and then destroy them, and their network, before the clock runs out and they execute their next deal. 

 

As Kevin closes in on the killers, he discovers evidence that their next deal is about to be launched.  The potential target area—the U.S. east coast which includes twenty-six nuclear facilities, four liquefied natural gas terminals and major high-density population cities—New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington.
