Secotan: An Alternative Energy Novel

In 1714 in the remote Indian village of Secotan, a mysterious substance known as “pocosin” is transformed by the village shaman to create light. His beautiful daughter Selu crosses cultural boundaries and engages in an unlikely romance with a colonial leader of the nearby Bath Colony. Almost three hundred years later, the world is struggling to feed its growing addiction to oil. Kurt Benjamin, Director of Alternative Energy Research for a major oil company, breaks into an encrypted computer file and uncovers a dark company secret. He is soon recruited by Sarah Carpenter, Chief Operating Officer of the Dutch Phosphate Corporation, to lead a bold energy research project. Realizing that their success will likely cost the world’s major oil companies billions in lost profits, Sarah and Kurt take extraordinary measures to keep their project covert. In spite of their efforts, they find themselves battling unknown enemies who learn of their discoveries. This fast- paced mystery adventure transports you to the board rooms of Wall Street, to Houston, Texas and the hub of the US oil industry, to a clandestine research facility in the coastal regions of North Carolina, to the deserts of the Middle East, and finally to a tiny island in Belize in a quest to find alternative energy. Engage in this timely adventure that raises critical issues of oil- based energy shortages and viable future alternatives. The sequel to Secotan is scheduled to be released in April of 2012.
