Thunder Moon Tussle is a novel that would never have happened if I had followed my original plan. I was writing another novel and decided that I needed a backstory told. That backstory wasn’t expected to be very long. However, that was before I introduced Deputy Genevieve Miller.
Seldom does a character arrives that disrupts everything. Deputy Miler arrived and disrupted Nils Carmike according to plan. But that interaction became so intriguing that the storyline morphed. In fact, it morphed enough to require a substantial rewrite of the original novel to include Gen Miller as a major character.
As that original novel, I’m nearing its completion after rewriting it from scratch. Gen’s inclusion is a positive impact on the original story. I welcome the reader to take a sneak peak at Thunder Moon Tussle:

Evidence to Resolve Dark Energy Mystery
Dark matter and dark energy have been two fundamental problems in current physics.
Dark matter is the unseen matter that makes galaxies spin like DVDs rather than like whirl pools. The dark matter has to be there to make the visible matter (stars and nebula) move the way they do.
Dark energy is responsible for explaining the measurements of the universe’s expansion. If the universe motion was driven by gravity only, then all of the objects in the universe should be slowing down with time. The measurement indicates that the galaxies are speeding up as they move away from each other. Dark energy is postulated as the unknow energy source that explains the measurements of the universe’s expansion.
Now, Evidence suggests that black holes may be responsible for this dark energy. If true, this will account for 70% of the energy balance of the universe that is currently unknown.
First Evidence of Black Holes as the Source of Dark Energy
