Welcome to The Eye-Dancers

Hello!  The Eye-Dancers is a Young Adult sci-fi/fantasy novel,  available as both an e-book and a paperback.  As the author, I have decided to create this little space on the Web.  It is my hope that this platform will be a meeting place for people to talk about, critique, and learn more about the book.  And also a place where other topics are discussed as well, from comic books to the Twilight Zone, from creative writing to quantum physics, from personal memories to short stories and many things in between!  Hopefully there is something here to interest everyone . . .

The story of The Eye-Dancers takes place in western New York State, where I was born and spent the first twenty-five years of my life.  Many of the characters, events, locations, and themes in the story are inspired from my years growing up in my old neighborhood in the suburbs of Rochester.  This was, in short, a labor of love, and I hope that comes across in the pages.  Nowadays, I live in the hills of central Vermont with my wife, Sarah, and our regal cat, Luke.  But the magic of childhood, of the adventures I shared with my friends growing up, has remained with me well into adulthood.  The Eye-Dancers is for anyone who likes to imagine, who wonders, “What’s really out there?”  “What is across the void?  Another reality?  Another world?”  It seems to me that when we’re young, our minds are more free and more open to discover the nature of things.  The Eye-Dancers asks some probing questions about what we term “reality,” and the four main characters in the novel  (Mitchell Brant, Joe Marma, Ryan Swinton, and Marc Kuslanski) must travel on an extraordinary journey to search for the answers.

For a snapshot of the book, please take a look at Chapter One, Chapter Two, and Chapter Three.

Thanks so much for reading!

    Now this sounds interesting. Reality huh? I am discovering, the older I get, an increasing peculiarity in this lovely world we share. One thing for which I am grateful is that I read a lot of sci-fi when I was young. It has helped me to accept so many I ideas that I might otherwise have dismissed as just too strange.

      Thanks for writing! I couldn’t agree more about sci-fi. It definitely helps us to broaden our horizons and, I would argue, become more thoughtful and creative individuals. Great hearing from you!

      Hi Janice! Unfortunately, I believe I participated in this same blog hop just a couple of months ago, so I guess I will pass on this one. Thanks so much for thinking of me, though. Your ongoing support means a great deal! Thanks again!
