In Opportunity Calls, the first title in the series Chinavare's Find, Random Arthur Hause, a history teacher/baseball coach trades in his teaching career and sets out on a quest to do something that matters before life passes him by. The road to Hell may be paved with good intentions, but Random soon finds himself following a road that someone else has built, where everything happens for a reason and even his dreams are not his own.

As he travels, Random builds an odd collection of friends, including an indentured servant named Cynthia Han. Together, Random and Cynthia save the colony of New Beijing. What do you do when you discover that you have taken on the role of the blue touch paper, the trigger of a massive upheaval in the world order?

M. A. Roberts has used a combination of history, technology, and a dose of 'what if' to create an interesting and believable alternative future. Lisa Corson created the beautiful cover art for Opportunity Calls. You can see more of Lisa's creations at Homespun Heritage.    

M. A. Roberts has taught social studies and literature for twenty-five years. He began writing in high school and then put it away to do other things. His series, Chinavare's Find began as a character sketch in a creative writing class in the early 90's, and gradually grew. In 2008, M. A. Roberts began assembling the various pieces of the series, finally publishing Opportunity Calls, the first title in the series in 2012. The second and third titles in the series, Challenges and Distant Horizons followed soon after. M. A. Roberts also enjoys politics, running as the Green Party's candidate for the U. S. House of Representatives in Texas's Second District, and he plans on doing so again in 2014.
