DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
As a science journalist, Jade has seen more than her fair share of peculiar oddities—none weirder than her socially inept fellow reporter Antigone. When the test of a teleporter using an electron collider goes awry, the two women find their world changed in subtle ways, with anomalies breaking out in their personal lives. Their increasingly unstable dimension allows Jade to shapeshift, while Antigone can see portals into other worlds.
Lyke creates an ingenious world of alternate worlds in this imaginative, well-crafted science fiction. After a quantum physics experiment goes haywire and a science journalist becomes trapped in another dimension, it's up to socially inept Antigone and her fellow journalist Jade, a woman of peer-reviewed facts and natural law, to rescue their colleague from another dimension. But the paradox has shifted, and the pair is left drifting away into increasingly strange worlds. Lyke seems to have fun developing her characters, their backstory, the endearing bond of friendship between her two protagonists as well as the intriguing world of multi dimensions, parallel universes, and the concept of dimensional dislocation. The fascinating premise, confident prose, and Lyke's marvelous touches...bring life to Jade and Anti's exhilarating adventure among the worlds." - The Prairies Book Review
