Abolishing nuclear weapons
B.A.N. banner for t-shirts.png

In 2014 I published a book, Twilight Visitor, a geopolitical thriller about China invading Iran for its oil, wherein Iran retaliates by firing a nuclear warhead at Beijing. The book has garnered tremendous reviews, comparing it to the best of Dan Brown and other similar authors, but what is important is that the story impresses on the reader that nuclear war is just a button away. In several of my subsequent geopolitical thrillers this thread also weaves through the stories, to help raise awareness on this existential threat to the future of our kids.

The 9th Divinity
Dictators bleed too!


Canada's toughest crime fighter takes on the madman himself. The 4th novel in the Keeno Crime Thrillers, is not only a crime and geopolitical thriller, it actually shows just how easy it would be with today's technology and some good old-fashioned guts, to stop the dictators, the madmen holding the world hostage with war and nuclear weapons, without continuing to wage war. Every dictator in history has eventually fallen - the question is, how many have to die before that happens? You will ask yourself at the end of this novel, why isn't this approach being done - why wait?

"This is a remarkable exploration into the ‘what if’ of global power structures. Laplaine takes a deep dive into the complexities of the mind, and how it relates to the concept of totalitarian regimes. It’s a brutal examination of a possible future if the world doesn’t wake up to the dangers posed by the likes of North Korea and Russia."

- Novelist, David Luddington

"I thought this book was super. Well written with a tight plot. Oh that something like this could really happen and help the insanity that is in the world today."

- Elaine Friedhaber

Opening The 9th Divinity is thought-changing and mindset-shifting. It's takes you to a different level though. It's emotionally rich, raw and so real as the characters dive deeper into the sad state of our world. As I read, and I do love a thrilling, suspenseful novel, I keep finding moments and details I can understand, as we are living it today... Hopefully we can learn from some of the paths this book travels and that war is not the answer.

- April B.

From a master of suspense, an activist for human rights and against nuclear weapons, comes a disturbingly believable story of people who are ready to risk their lives—and AI is of a great help for it—to save the humankind from governing sociopaths and criminals.

When Cowboys Fall
An inspired story about finding redemption.



All profits from the first 100 copies of the book which are sold, will go to humanitarian aid in Palestine, where countless thousands of children are starving.

Take a journey through one man's eyes. At some point in our lives, we may face the midlife crisis - that threshold where the road ahead is shorter than the one we have travelled so far, and where we wonder about how we can make the most of the time we have left. When Cowboys Fall is inspired by real people, a story about a man who is trying to reconcile his midlife crisis, and who experiences a near-death episode only to be saved by a woman who fishes him out of the sea. The story follows Trent McCallister and the woman, Andi, who changes his life. The book is dedicated to the Palestinian people, as one part of the adventure which Trent and Andi find themselves engaged in, is saving people fleeing from the Gaza as Israeli forces bomb the region.
