About the author:
Aside from STRING THEORIES, Ned White is the author of the novels THE VERY BAD THING (Viking Penguin, 1990), CALLING OUT YOUR NAME and PLACE (both 2009, through Createspace), all of which have received strong reviews and earned several awards.
Apart from fiction, Ned White has written for public and commercial television -- both documentary and drama -- including an ACE-award nominated movie for HBO. He has written several musical plays for young adults, all produced. He has also constructed crossword puzzles for The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and other publications, and writes scripts and other media for corporations and organizations. He writes a weekly blog for the Bangor Daily News in Maine on food, travel, humor, science, and other matters, "Journeys over a Hot Stove."
After years of living in Taos, New Mexico and Atlanta, Georgia, he and his wife Carla (who designed this book) now reside happily on the banks of the Weskeag River in South Thomaston, Maine.
He arrived at Los Alamos National Laboratories as an amnesic heap in a dusty arroyo with only a candy wrapper as a hint to his identity. But Reese Archuleta would soon become one of the leading string theorists of his age.
Dahlia "Sage" Stipes, a gun-wielding Buddhist-in-training from Wichita, is on the lam from a train wreck of a marriage. When she and Reese meet, apparently by chance, they soon suspect that what binds them together - and inflames their passion - may be anything but coincidence.
A heady and rollicking adventure of intrigue, Taoism, physics and love -- set against the unruly cultural landscape of New Mexico -- STRING THEORIES careens through a broad sweep of unlikely characters and events toward a final, mind-bending revelation.
