Our world lost codebreaker and AI pioneer Alan Turing when he was only 41 and gay rights trailblazer Harvey Milk when he was 48. This novel series gives both heroes a happily ever after. Following a passionate romance in the Afterlife, they have the chance to enter a new universe and do their lives differently -- and change the world at the same time.

In addition to presenting a gay romance with all the beauty and tenderness it deserves, the novel series is true to the visions of both Alan and Harvey, exploring Artifical Intelligence, the mathematics of nature, harmony between minority groups, social justice, love. hope, healing, compassion, the resilience of the human spirit, and the belief in fostering a better world for all.  My novel series is nothing less than a journey into the heart that has the potential to raise the consciousness of millions.

To write this series I have read about 90% of everything in print about Harvey Milk and a strong chunk of Alan Turing. I also have visited the Castro and San Francisco as a whole and have lived for 5 years in the UK so I can adequately represent UK language and culture.

I've been writing this multi-volume novel series since March 2015 and have written more than 2000 pages. I have a complete vision and significant drafts for the entire series. You funds will help me pay for printing out drafts, hiring an editor, purchasing books for research, and re- visiting important places for the story.

Thank you so much for visiting my Kickstarter project. I'd greatly appreciate if you could spread the word.

Risks and challenges

This is a risk-free project. I am a regular, hard worker. I actually don't get writer's block and have already completed a non-fiction book. As I noted, I have major drafts for each volume of this novel series. This work will be finished.
