To those who study plants, the Chamala represents the Holy Grail. Finding it would be the discovery of a lifetime—make that a dozen lifetimes. It produces a berry with phytochemistry possessing the unique ability to hyperstimulate nerve cell reproduction.

Mason’s first attempts at writing were song lyrics he penned while playing bass guitar in a rock band during his teens. In the fifty years since its beginning his passion for writing has evolved from a story told with two hundred words, in the course of a three-minute musical composition to ninety thousand word novels.
Born in Dallas, Texas as part of the baby boom following World War II, Mason came of age during the Vietnam War era. As a young man, he traveled throughout the USA, as well as Central America, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Australia. Along the way he worked as a carpenter, a cheese shop owner, and a motorcycle parts salesman, to make ends meet.
Today, Mason lives in the Central Texas Hill Country with his wife of twenty-two years and two (at last count) rescue cats. When he’s not writing, he enjoys hiking, motorcycling and recording music.
Books by Mason Malone
Greg was a good husband, for the most part, when Lauren was twenty-two. Loving and understanding of her various eccentricities, but not particularly ambitious, and unable to provide the finer things in life she so badly craved. Then came Nolan, a handsome man with a good income, capable of giving her the things she wants. Dividing her time fairly between the two men is a challenge, until Gordon comes along. Then it becomes impossible.
