Every damned thing she says is a lie…
New fiction on Kindle. Just £0.99/$0.99 for launch. PANACEA, a psychological thriller by Piotr Ryczko.
A wife, a mother, or a robot?
When a woman enters a family as
Ren feels alone. Uncomfortable in her own skin. The world is against her. Strangers treat her with contempt. Her family are exhausted with her mood swings and the weird stories she tells. Ren knows she is different, but why can’t she be accepted for who she is?
After the loss of his wife and mother to his child, Jan Wiskirski decides to purchase one of a new generation of robots to replace her. Perfectly designed, with a human-like artificial intelligence, and a human look and feel, he believes the clone is everything he needs to bring the family together.
But Ren v. 4.3 may not be quite the all-perfect model advertised. She begins to develop real feelings, and a powerful protectiveness over her step-child, Kamil. Indeed what happened to the boy’s mother, why won’t Jan talk about it?
FREE with Kindle Unlimited.

“Rene v3.2” – a short story about a female robot companion. A woman made only to fulfill other’s needs. Seen through Rene’s eyes, the story takes the worn cliche of the dangerous Artificial Intelligence, and turns it on its head. It asks if A.I.’s will be able to replace true human relationships? Especially the ones of the intimate kind. How might we treat them? How will the Robot Companion react emotionally? What rights will she have if abused? And what is the nature of consciousness? The very thing that defines a human.
Last time, I concluded at how important it is to arrive at a deeper emotional connection between us, the writers, and the characters in our stories. The true stuff of life, our hard earned emotional experience which has burnt its way into our subconscious, and made us into who we are. This time around I would like to go deeper into my own experience of enquiry about the main character of my novel. A protoganist which was as far away from my own personality as I could possibly imagine. Or so I thought initially. But more importantly I would like to break down my process of enquiry into some more manageable steps and conclusions. So others might hopefully take away something of value from this.
