Join Denise and I as we discuss my latest release, 2050: Psycho Island (Book 1). We cover the following topics:

-What will life be like in 2050? We discuss future events in the novel that are likely to happen IRL. Ones that are unlikely to happen. And even ones that are already happening.

-The nuts and bolts behind the complex plotting of the 2050 series.

-Characters and the secrets behind my character profiles.

-We mostly avoid it, but we do briefly talk about the cerveza sickness. (credit to George Gammon)

-We read chapter 2 of the novel, complete with terrible acting!

    Interesting episode, particularly because I’m currently reading 2050: Psycho Island (Book 1). If my kindle is accurate, I’m 61% of the way through it (Chapter 66).

    Right now, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s hard to imagine how things will play out over the next few months, much less in the years leading up to 2050. But I’m expecting a lot of minor and a few major crises to be coming mankind’s way. I doubt that COVID-19 disease will be the last biological crisis, and a subsequent one may be much worse.

    Autonomous cars are an interesting issue. I suspect it will be longer than proponents expect before they are able to take you from any point A to any point B in the U.S. But they may be able to travel on the interstates some years sooner. Autonomous trucks on the interstates will probably be a common thing, too, by 2050.

    I’m already 80 years old, so I won’t be around to find out how things turn our in 2050, but it is interesting to think about.

      Dick,

      Thank you for listening and reading. I hope you’re enjoying the book. It’s very difficult to accurately predict next year, much less thirty years from now! But, like you said, it is interesting to think about. I agree with you on autonomous vehicles. It may take longer than people think, especially with the pandemic putting the brakes on the economy. However, they already have autonomous trucks on the road running a route in California.
