How Secure Are Our Elections?

What if you knew that hacking a voting machine is so easy that at a cyber security conference in 2017 an entire array of commonly used machines were hacked in a matter of hours?


What if you knew that in 305 elections conducted between 2004 and 2016, Republican candidates outperformed exit poll predictions on election day by an average of six percentage points?

What if you knew that the odds of that happening by random chance are eighty million to one?

42 Million to One is a political thriller about voting machine manipulation.


Lucy Gilmore, a young reporter, begins a journey to uncover proof that voting machines have been hacked and election outcomes have been altered. She discovers the real events that demonstrate just how vulnerable our democracy has become.


This eye-opening thriller speaks not just to voting machine

corruption but the state of our democracy and why our struggle to govern effectively becomes more difficult every year.

What has happened to American democracy?  No Popes in Heaven is a political thriller with biting commentary about what has gone wrong with the world's ideal government.

A major pharmaceutical company has developed a drug to slow aging - but the long clinical trials required to bring it to market are just that:  too long to be profitable. Operating with political maneuverings the would make Machiavelli blush, the Big Pharma company conceives of a different course of action - brilliant, lucrative, and dangerous.  But as this tactic spins out of control, the curtain is pulled back on the worst of Washington's machinations:  big money, back room deals and betrayals, and political campaigns that leave voters behind.

Author Malchow's quarter century of experience as a political consultant is impossible to miss, as he is clearly an expert on the dark machinations of American political life.
