The Pitch

Monopole is a time-travel mystery novel about a world-famous physicist and engineer from the 1950s who, after creating what is arguably the most revolutionary technology history, wakes from a coma completely crippled and with severe amnesia. In short order, the hero regains his capacities and realizes that the future world in which he now finds himself is the result of that technology, which he invented 100 years ago, when he was the Elon Musk of his time.

It’s a classic fish-out-of-water story, but with sci-fi twists around every corner—and, at the center of it all, a deep regret over love lost, which becomes the hero’s focus once he remembers everything he left in the past. But in order to get back there, he must first embrace the future. Along the way, he explores a world irrevocably changed by his inventions, and encounters a former colleague, who is also somehow in the future and who is now running the hero’s massive technology empire. What he discovers in the end is the true nature of love, memory, and identity—and an inter-dimensional conspiracy he could have never expected…

The novel’s title is a reference to the hero’s incredible fictional technology: singularly poled magnetic particles know as monopoles, which levitate against any inorganic surface and, in the future world of the novel, have applications for everything from furniture and architecture to mobile communication, mass transit, and stable nuclear energy.

More of Monopole is still to come. Stay tuned…
