Development Pitch

I think the story will appeal to a wide audience given the broad range of subject matter. A father consoling his son; raised by a stern father who was all about a man providing and protecting his family. The sacrifice he made leaving his family to try and save lives on a doomed planet; and lastly, how to balance our morality over our technology. We delve into future tech and the fate of humanity. But it also has romance, and tidbits of comedy woven into the story.

About The Author

I think this part was harder to write than the book; talking about yours truly isn’t something I’m comfortable doing, so I’ll be brief. I still find the concept of thinking about myself as a novelist, a fantastical dream. I’ve always been a nerdy sci-fi buff and often spent my free time reading the greats, such as Gene Rodenberry, Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and Arthur C. Clarke. Their mind-bending stories fueled my already active imagination and persuaded me to write stories of my own. Unfortunately for me, when it came to writing those stories, my dysfunctional brain wouldn’t let me write them properly, until the advent of word processors.
