AOTW #16 R Leib

Welcome to Author of the Week!

Group members are asked to do features and talk about our AOTW to help each one to promote his/her work to the book community.

This week: R Leib!

I have been a fan of Science Fiction since I was a pre-teen. I started with the youth fiction of Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein. Once I graduated to reading Bradbury, Science Fiction became part of who I was. Over the years, Arthur C. Clarke, Ursula K. Le Guin, Alfred Bester, Harlan Ellison, and a myriad other writers sparked my imagination.

I worked for 30 years in the computer industry as a programmer and in quality assurance. Most of that time was spent in the paleolithic ages of data processing. This was when computers were million-dollar behemoths with slow processing speeds, when a terabyte of data required the floor of an office building to store it. I saw the advent of display terminals, performance monitoring, and computer generated imaging.

It was only when I retired from working in the computer industry that I returned to writing

Where can I find R? 

On a space station in Earth orbit, something terrible has happened to Bertie Lindermann. Normally, the investigation would be a job for station security, but this is not normally. Allon Wu might be the last person anyone would pick to unravel a high profile mystery, but circumstances have thrust that responsibility upon him. With deceit the order of the day, who is not a suspect? Is this an isolated incident, or the precursor of a maelstrom that could throw Kostya station into chaos? With an unknown deadline, uncertain resources, and a personal tale of fantastic obsession, can he navigate the currents of intrigue and curtail what may be an evolving crisis before it is too late?

Where can I buy this book?
