The challenges teenagers face and how they affect the Author's characters.
Hunter has it worse than most, because not only does he not fit in, but he doesn’t even understand what he is. Neither does anyone else. He is still young, but he must face teasing, harassment, and many other obstacles, all while trying to maintain friendships. As he feels obligated to help others because of his ability, his difficulties increase. In each novel of theMaster of Perceptions series, Hunter faces internal and external challenges, and they grow more complex with the passing of time. Bullying, domestic violence, depression, teen drug and alcohol use, peer pressure, and sex are all discussed. Meanwhile, he has to learn his own strengths and weaknesses, and how to manage them in his future life, just like every other teenager!

Master of Perception Series ramps up!
February 5, 2019
Like Rowling's Harry Potter, young Hunter is gaining maturity and skill in each new book of the "Master of Perceptions" series. The reader shares his increasing grasp of the unique ability to see people's auras and manipulate them, and in Book 2 Hunter has a mission. He must deal with the very adult issue of domestic abuse. The perpetrator is a policeman, and his victim is a teacher at Hunter's school. He can hear her aura screaming for help, but what can a sixth grader do against an officer of the law?
Dr. Darin Brown expertly builds the tension and leads us to understand this autistic young man's unique perspective. Imagine the power of seeing people's feelings and thoughts in their auras and also being able to manipulate the colors to affect their behavior. Hunter can already heal himself, but this skill comes at a price. It drains his energy, which can send him into the Void, if he is doesn't keep up his carbs and sugar. Believable - though fantastic - and engaging, I highly recommend the "Master of Perception" Series.
DARIN C. BROWN spent the last twenty years saving lives as an emergency medicine physician in New Hampshire and Maine. His master’s degree in biomedical engineering and PhD in biophysics helped him conceptualize Hunter’s astounding capabilities. When he’s not writing, he directs Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, including the biannual shows on the Conway Scenic Railroad. In addition to his varied academic interests, he competes at the national level in master’s track. He currently resides in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with his wife, Dr. Sandra Brown, and their many pets.
