The Learjet spirals out of control, then crashes into the Pacific. Onboard, Celerity, young, rich, and the world’s most famous female athlete. The world is stunned.
Recordings are discovered—a diary of her rapid rise to fame and fortune—her secrets revealed one by one.
Celerity usually comes in second at UCLA track—the first loser, her coach would say. But she is encouraged by her father, a botanist, her only parent. Then he dies unexpectedly. Now she is parentless and alone.
While wrapping up his affairs, she learns about his expeditions of discovery to the Darién jungle and a plant that transforms indigenous tribesmen into prolific hunters—and extraordinarily fast runners.
She takes a sabbatical from college and follows his work. After weeks enduring the tropics, she finds the plant—it’s fifty feet tall—and carnivorous. She returns with its extract.
Training at her local high school, her speed is increasing, and people notice. A student times her in the 100 meters—she breaks the women’s world record—videos go viral—and life will never be the same.
Approached by a flamboyant sports agent, he has a plan; there’s no money in track… try out for the Chicago Bears as a wide receiver. Nobody can touch her.
Then the side effects kick in.

THRESHOLD is published. April 1, 2020
2040. Technology stops working. All of it.
No internet. No screens. Not even cars. But one thing is working—A.I.
It crossed the THRESHOLD. No going back.
An autistic savant holds the key to the future. Any future. If there’s going to be one.
From AMERICAN MUTT:
Twas nights before choosing
and all through the lands
Vitriol and wrath ignited the chans
From bulletin to image board
from Twitter their spatter
Off with their heads
because it don’t matter
Awaken the great one
Combust and behold
Down the hole we go
He’s white I am told
The rabbit he runs
He hollers and moans
Down this way and that
Raged on the QAnon clones
