Right of Human - Revoked, July 2018.
"The headquarters of ASL, an enemy organization bent on destroying human life beyond Earth, has been covertly infiltrated by a highly sophisticated military android named Coggi. Her creator and AI code analyst, Alexandra Minkowski, fired for disobeying orders many years prior, loves Coggi dearly and wants her back.
Now Alexandra must gather together her crew of ex-colleagues in an attempt to rescue Coggi. But it will not be by conventional means. Xandra will side with the enemy – do a deal with them - hack her own military command center from within ASL HQ to find out where Coggi is and then extract her. Meanwhile, all of Coggi's memories have been wiped by the military, she is a walking time bomb, and it will take all their experience to regain Coggi's trust.
The task of persuading Coggi she is in deed human is left to one person, a bi-gender named Paighton. After many weeks of trial and error, finally he breaks through and in so doing they fall in love. Now for the hard part: Taking back control of Coggi and escaping without military command finding out – and it all goes down to the wire with hellish consequences."

EXCERPT from Chapter Three: "It's like giving away the truth... about yourself,” Xandra assured her. “It's scary but it is so amazing when it happens. You are no longer yourself ONLY, you become attached to a partner who becomes you. It is not about the physics, the sexuality nor the orgasm. The most important part of your relationship will be communication. You must talk about everything; your fears, your frustrations. Only in knowing how you truly feel will your partner understand. Silence is deadly!"
An horrific yet compassionate psychological crime thriller:
"The plots, of which there are many, are suspended between affluent, city life and an isolated village in the West Country. It is the story of a love that develops between a respectable paediatrician and a young, female social worker; an affair to be deviously manipulated by a beautiful but deranged widow.
In part, it explores the windings of male sexuality from the view point of four female characters, while the compassionate and confused man in the middle, cursed with being unable to understand nor control his sexual urges, is left open to extreme exploitation. He is a child, serial killer.., living a double life. However, with care and great tenderness, our social worker, on discovering the appalling truth, finally breaks through and finds the answer to the madness haunting him."
... Will her efforts be enough? With the police closing in and that infatuated widow becoming more malevolent by the minute, his time is running out – his sanity, too."

EXCERPT from Chapter Two: Laurie Endecott regained her poise and veered left in between two broken sections of wall, disappearing into cloisters. At the far end of the many limestone archways she mounted some fallen rocks and fed herself fearlessly through a huge first level window. She was now on all fours, clinging to worn ledges with almost feline agility. Following the main wall of the chapel vestry, she leapt the emptiness of a crumbling doorway, then dropped down onto the remains of an external wall which encircled the lower terrace. She was twenty feet up.., could feel the wind under her skirt as she crept out into the dim moonlight. Peering down at the deeply shadowed stage, she spied movement. The figure was now walking, aimlessly it seemed at first glance; but then perhaps, with purpose, head low, as if looking for something. The ground was even, grass well grazed by sheep, though dotted with immense, granite boulders... “Nicky, am I late?” Laurie cackled, loudly.

EXCERPT from Chapter Tomorrow: Nestor smiled, perhaps for the first time with true intention. He stepped back and looked at Bails under a wing. “How the hell did you know?”
“Hey. I didn't. I just worked through it. There was no way another Nestor could be here. I checked everything, I ran diagnostics.., nothing. So I proposed a concept, hoping that fate would accept. I just put it out there, for consideration. We all do this everyday of our lives. Sometimes destiny rejects our efforts and sometimes we get it right. Nothing more than that. I just set the pieces in play."

EXCERPT from Chapter two:
“Now you must kiss me,” Sylvia announced at the door to his shack. “We must consummate our relationship. Come on,” she smiled, rising on tiptoes and placing her hands on his shoulders. Tony did not hesitate. He slid one hand around her soft, slender waist and raised her off the sand, his other cupping the back of her head as he gently pulled her towards him. She closed her eyes as their lips met and felt a tingling in her tummy. His body was firm, his lips moist, his tongue deep and searching; it was all she could do not to feint in the heat of the moment as he devoured her consciousness bit by bit. Finally he released her. He was hoping for a smile, which he didn't get. Wondered if he had done something wrong when she answered his thoughts in typical Sylvia style:
“OK. Now it's Doggy's turn.”
She gestured with a wave of the hand. “You've got to kiss Doggy, too!”

EXCERPT from Chapter one: There, far below, stood a figure. Though they had never met in person, she knew at once it was her precious Coggi, in the flesh. Xandra had been dreading this moment more than any other, knowing it would be the greatest single impression she would have to endure, and it took all her strength not to burst into tears. Doubts began piling up like fallen skittles in an alley. She, best in her class, had volunteered willingly to spearhead this operation. Now she was a mess. Did she really have it in her? Here she was, falling at the first hurdle. She stepped out heavily on to a platform, as if shackled by the weight of her emotions, and was lowered to the ground. Coggi looked younger by a few years than Xandra who was 35, but they could have been sisters. Both had wavy, brown hair, though Coggi's was shorter; both, soft amber eyes each with a small upright nose between. Xandra wanted so much to rush over and hug her little champion but knew she could not. She looked at her standing there in a blue body-suit, smiled, almost apologetically, then pointed at some words flashing on her chest: 'Coggi, Are You Comms Free?'.
