ABOUT

AI-Headshot-LowResCrop.jpg

RICHARD ROBERTS’ education in psychology and 25-year career in Marketing focused on understanding how people think.

 

He brought this experience to bear in the Tuning In series published by Highcrest Books.

 

An award-winning author, longtime yogi and meditator, he lives with his son and daughter in Marin County, California.

I hope my stories inspire you to consider that there’s more to reality than what we perceive with our five senses. To let yourself accept what you sometimes suspect.

Jon Gunnarson never meant to transform humanity.

 

He just wanted a normal life. A life where he doesn’t absorb other people’s emotions, lose himself, and have to live like a hermit. 

So he jumps at the chance to help develop a scam telepathy app because it will get him to Bhutan, where he hopes an old friend will help him. But when he meets neuroscientist Ella Sandstrom, the unthinkable happens. And when their boss comes unhinged, they must run for their lives. 

The question is, how will they escape someone who can read their minds?

"Bravo!

The prose and dialogue are quite professional, and we like the premise of the novel. An especially fine job describing the non-physical settings of characters' psyches."
