Chrysalis: A surgical sci-fi story about immortal potential
Jerry Fischer is in a race against time. He has Becker Muscular Dystrophy (BMD) and there is no known cure for his disease. His skeletal muscles are wasting away and now his heart is starting to weaken. But when professional cyclist Roy van Dijk is rendered brain-dead after an accident, three brain surgeons, who are ready to carry out the world’s first human head transplant, offer Fischer the chance of a second life with a completely new body, one free of the disease that is ruining his life.
Chrysalis takes the reader on a journey into the interior of the human body to witness the intricate surgery of a head transplant, while asking the question, “Can humans live forever and defeat disease and death by replacing bodies when they pack up?”
The novel is both a tense human drama and a philosophical search to find the source of immortality.

“The authors have combined the skills of the physician and philosopher to explore what they believe to be the next step in human development.” - Dr John Paterson, Consultant Physician & Neurologist, Scarborough, East Yorkshire
It is one million years ago in the Cradle of Humankind. A small family of hominids is eking out a precarious existence on the sunbaked Southern African savannah when their son falls down a sinkhole during a bush fire and disappears below earth. Will mother, father and son ever be reunited?
From this raw, fast-paced prehistoric adventure, Earthrise 2036 invites the reader to go on a journey through evolutionary time to the dawn of nuclear power, vividly depicting the horror of Hiroshima after the world's first atomic bomb was dropped on the city at the end of World War 2. Then, with intense documentary realism, the novel enables the reader to relive the wonders of the first human spaceflight when Yuri Gagarin stunned the world by rocketing into orbit to see the whole earth as one for the first time in mankind's history.
Lee takes the reader deeper into the space age with a realistic depiction of the inaugural landing of humans on the Moon in a daring and epic achievement of modern science. The fifth and final section is pure science fiction as the novel explores the solar system with a spaceman who doesn't know if he is dead or alive and whether he's about to discover the greatest secret of the universe, namely, is it possible to travel at the speed of light and, if it is, what world waits beyond on the other side of light?

Passage to Faith: Cosmic Evidence and Testimonies of God's Unseen Power
Passage to Faith is Book 1 in The Faith Today Trilogy series.
Passage to Faith explores current scientific evidence supporting the case for the existence of a creator God. It draws on dozens of historical testimonies of individuals who had encounters with a Supreme Being which influenced them to change their lives, and sometimes the world, for the better. Taking the reader on an evidence-based tour through the cosmos, Lee, qualified in the fields of the philosophy of futures studies, theology, literature and education, reveals a stunning degree of indwelling intelligence and beauty on display throughout the universe and on Earth. He then traces the common ground between the creation account in Genesis in the Bible and scientific cosmology, the Big Bang theory and Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity.
Lee discusses the faith of a wide range of people from different eras and disciplines to reinforce the conviction that God’s redeeming power actively intervenes not just in nature but in history. These examples include, among others, figures from history like Joan of Arc, Nelson Mandela and Barack and Michelle Obama, scientists and mathematicians like Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, Faraday, Mendel, Pasteur, Pascal, George Washington Carver, Dr Wernher von Braun, Professor Christiaan Barnard and Francis S. Collins, missionaries like John Wesley, Mother Theresa, Dr David Livingstone, Dr Albert Schweitzer, and Jackie Pullinger, singers, entertainers, and actors such as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves, Glen Campbell, Alice Cooper, Gary Cooper, John Wayne, Alfred Hitchcock, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, Sylvester Stallone, and Bear Grylls, men and women from the sports arena like George Foreman, Novak Djokovic, Simona Halep and Siya Kolisi, as well as astronauts such as Dr Buzz Aldrin, David Randolph Scott and Gene Cernan.
