As a start-up entrepreneur in the medical device industry since the mid-80s, I’ve been privileged to have the opportunity to see the newest innovations in healthcare and work with some of the most brilliant researchers, scientists and physicians in the industry throughout the world. It’s allowed me to witness technologies that could easily be viewed as “science fiction”, ranging from controversial developments with embryonic stem cells to designing the first electronic, auto-focusing implantable lens for inside the eye; (for the Terminator or the Six Million Dollar Man – depending upon your generation)!
Logging in millions of miles on numerous airlines, while chasing new technologies and the proper funding to move them forward, provided me long hours to read hundreds of novels. It finally got to the point where the written stories were less exciting than the brutal and thrilling reality of what I was facing on a daily basis.
So how does someone who’s never written a novel before, or even taken a course in writing beyond the mandatory English Lit 101 course in college, start their first manuscript with ANY hope of ever seeing it published? To be honest, if I didn’t have the scars and obsessive traits developed over the years of being a start-up entrepreneur… I have no idea how or why anyone would do such a thing.
I just defaulted to what I know, and what I’ve been doing over the past 25 years in my own industry. The process is very similar to establishing a new company. You start with a design concept, do the research, develop it, start production, and eventually strive to get it to the market. To me, it became second nature, but I had no expectations, until it became a finished product. Then I had to “step it up” and attempt to make it as successful as possible. So with a Literary Agency, Publicist and Publisher all in tow, the readers will now decide if EQUITY of EVIL is worth reading or something that stimulates others to go “write their own”! Regardless… the second novel is well underway and I’m enjoying the process all over again.

A Venture Capital Fund makes a risky investment to start a challenging new business that appears capable of reaching profitabililty with modest capital requirements. The real challenge: optimizing one of the most frequently performed surgical procedure in the World — Abortion.
Founding Partner, Roman Citrano, a successful entrepreneur turned venture capitalist, soon struggles with what he believes is his choice to establish the controversial new company. He soon realizes that he and others are but pawns on a massive, ugly chessboard being manipulated to benefit a far larger, illicit market in human organs for transplantation. Unknowingly, prime, hyper-enriched organs are spawned from the aborted fetuses and grown like hydroponic vegetables.
An unfolding world of deceit, rape, human trafficking and assassination becomes deeply personal as Roman’s sole love interest secretly uses one of his new abortion services to terminate her untimely pregnancy. When she disappears, his frantic search becomes a hellish nightmare that grows worse by the hour.
Based on true events, this bold novel involves some of the world’s oldest, most emotional and controversial issues. At the core of each matter is man’s predisposition to control and take ownership of the human spirit for the sake of profit and person gain… such is the dark and brutal new world where life becomes the equity of evil.
