Eva - Tragedy: In 1960, Fidel Castro celebrates his victory over President Batista.  Not everyone is happy with the outcome.  Eva and Franco Fernandez make the dangerous choice of escaping to the north: to the United States.  The trip does not go well and Eva bears the worst of it.

A refugee separated from the group she escaped with, she finds herself pregnant and alone in a new land.  Without money, without friends, and bearing the guilt of the death of her husband, she struggles through the temptations of drugs and the need to survive by selling whatever she can - including herself.


Caution:  Contains adult situations. Not suitable for children and sensitive adults.


President-Elect Madison has assigned his transition team a daunting task: examine every agency in the Executive Branch and find a Constitutional foundation for each of them.  If none can be found, the team must find a way to correct things without abandoning the people served.

Many of the programs that catch their attention turn out to be Accidents of History: never intended to be permanent.

The efforts of the team are wrapped up in assassination plots, lust, and love, lending spice and realism to the story that makes it both entertaining and exciting.  

Sebastian’s style makes the normally dry topic of government interesting: even the committee meetings are riveting.  The reader can relate Madison’s efforts to the ongoing presidential election and understand what all the fuss is about.  Sebastian pulls the reader along to an astonishing and adroit ending, leaving us gasping in surprise.

Meet the Cast!


One of the things that makes reading these stories so enjoyable and easy is the cast of characters.

The regular reader gets to know them almost like family.  Some occur in only one story, but others like Pete Levindusky, play a role in several.  In Day 183, we first meet him when he is 25, but in Dragonfly he is in his sixties.  Think of this as our family album!

Pete and Sarah meet in Day 183.  Harry, Sarah's dad, meets Molly, in Grace (book three).  Bob and Brandy find each other in Grace (book two).  Their children, Harold and Valerie, find roles to play in Serenity and Dragonfly.

The Writer has its own cast.
