Between Us

Ten years ago, my grandmother (aka Mama) died from complications of Alzheimer’s. Before her death, Mama underwent numerous tests and tried various prescriptions. But the doctors refused to label her with Alzheimer’s and instead branded her bizarre reactions as “old age.”
For example, Mama watched the TV show Dora the Explorer and spoke to Dora as if she were a real person. Other days, Mama stomped on the ground killing the roaches in her room, but there were no insects there.
As we watched the downgrade of my grandmother’s mental capabilities, my family mourned and felt powerless to help her change.
In time, we judged that her prescriptions were worthless. They served only to subdue her symptoms, but they could never restore Mama to her once vibrant self. Near the end of Mama’s life, the doctor’s diagnosed her with Alzheimer’s, but it was too late, and she passed.
Now, years later, I wrote Between Us to show both sides of Alzheimer’s. The family side struggles with the diagnoses, and the medical side that tries to cure the disease. On one side, we see a surgeon diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and fears his disease will destroy him. Thus, in a desperate attempt to keep his mind clear, he volunteers, as patient one, for clinical drug trials. But that decision will not lead to relief but a guilty conscience when other patients die from the same drug.
Meanwhile, a nurse learns of several patients that are dead from suicide. Her investigation of their death leads back to the same trials the doctor underwent. Her journey will reveal that the Scientist behind the clinical trial forfeited her good intentions for unethical practices and greed.
Between Us is a fictionalized story that looks at a medical community that compromises their ethics and ultimately fails to see the pain and suffering of families who suffer from the heart-wrenching disease.

Gold!

Gold! The Kincaid Saga Book 1 by Thomas Greenbank Genre: Family Saga, Drama Fiction

Malcolm Kincaid is a self-made man. He is also a ruthless businessman and opportunist. He knows what it takes to build and maintain a business empire, but how far will he be prepared to go to achieve his goals — and what will he sacrifice along the way? Rachel, Malcolm’s one-time fiancé; his business partner, and the mother of his child, finds herself forced to work with the man she has grown to despise. Unaware of his true parentage, their son, Lachlan—after first studying for a law degree—advances through the ranks as their company grows into a mammoth corporation, while Rachel does her best to mitigate Malcolm’s increasing influence on him. This task becomes more difficult when Malcolm appoints Lachlan as manager of a new mine. Lachlan soon has his own set of challenges: A fractious and sometimes domineering wife with a drug dependency, a child of his own, and a conscience that often leads him into direct conflict with his Machiavellian ‘uncle’. Over the years, Malcolm Kincaid uses, abuses, and dominates associates and family alike, crushing all opposition in his pursuit of wealth and power. When he allows the pollution of an Aboriginal settlement’s water supply, however, he faces justice of a kind he could never imagine. GOLD! is a tale of greed, betrayal, family conflict, rape, and murder. It is also, however, a story of love and loyalty — and of how one man’s pride and prejudice can lead to terrible retribution.
