SYNOPSIS:
Imagine a vibrant community that rejects 5,000 years of human traditions. Imagine a society that affirms equal rights for both men and women.  Imagine a society without politicians, without corporate secrets, without adverts, without disparity in the spendable wealth of its citizens.  Such a community has defied the status quo.  It has aroused fear and envy among the powerful elite.  It needs extraordinary protection from those who would bring it down.

Nyssa has spent years in virtual bondage to a Japanese pimp before she landed at Dog Breakfast, a co-op dedicated to urban security and espionage. She is welcomed despite her woeful past.  She begins training as an operative and soon finds the physical hurdles almost beyond reach.  But she can't turn back because the co-op has become "home" and if she fails she'd mess up her best chance for happiness.  <> Kazuo has lost touch with the stone fox he met at the ski resort.  He will meet her again, but in a way he doesn't expect.

AUTHOR'S BIO

I live in Vancouver at the mouth of the Fraser River on Canada's westcoast. The city has been carved out of a temperate rainforest and is sandwiched between scenic mountains and the Pacific Ocean.  I've worked as a photographer, sports-fishing guide, cab driver and software developer.  At
present I'm semiretired and an avid reader of history, scientific literature, historical fiction and science fiction.  I also enjoy a good mystery or romantic thriller.
