Matthew Brooks about this book: A tightly plotted, fast paced, action thriller, Playing God is a reminder that our environment extends beyond the planet itself. I'm not what you would call a hard-core environmentalist, but I was horrified at something I read on a couple of bulletin boards. This made me stop and think about how there are powerful figures out there whose reach exceeds their grasp and it proved to be the inspiration for part two of the novel. I've been a computer hacker for many years, and the opportunity to use hacker lore as an integral part of my main character was to good to miss.
I thoroughly enjoyed writing this novel, a labor of love that took me almost a year, and it also allowed me to explore a theory of mine regarding Noah and the whole necessity for a deluge when it seemed that there were other, less dramatic, means to accomplish the same end. All in all it is my hope that this book will cause you to think long and hard about the people in power and what their goals are, because to fail to dig is to remain on the surface.
