I write in several genres, but mostly in speculative fiction and geopolitical thrillers - although I have several books in other categories too.
My focus has always been on writing very contemporary novels, which, while entertaining, pull no punches on the state of the world we live in, or the potential futures facing us, thus, the speculative fiction aspect of my works.
Several of my thriller books have portrayed the world as it is, or in the near future, with the consequential fallout of dictatorial regimes rising to power, such as in Russia, North Korea and China, and the crises we will all face if we do not remove their power to use nuclear weapons against us, or at the very least, to wage war against the free world with the threat of those weapons as their ace card.
I try, in all my stories, to espouse a way through and out of that dark place, where the good guys win; and while being a consummate optimist, I am also a realist, and I know, having lived through many wars and such, that the road ahead of us is only going to get worse, unless we make it better - and that's my goal in writing my books - to inspire a better future for all.

The 9th Divinity
A global thriller about now!
"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.
