About The Author

Kevin L. Schewe, MD, FACRO is a board-certified cancer specialist who has been in the private practice of radiation oncology for over 33 years. He continues to practice medicine as the Medical Director of Radiation Oncology for Alliance Cancer Care Colorado at Red Rocks in Golden, Colorado.

He also serves as Chairman of the Board of a small, publicly-traded, renewable, green energy and animal feed company called VIASPACE, Inc. Schewe is a World War II history buff, and has loved time travel since he was a kid, so it was only natural for him to combine the love of both into Bad Love Strikes, his debut novel. Schewe also has a life-long passion for music, which permeates most everything he does, including his new book. Schewe has two daughters and two granddaughters and lives in Denver, CO. When he isn’t writing, he loves to go for long walks, or can be found at the movie theater at least once a week. His job as a radiation oncologist has taught him to embrace life with hope, and he tries to apply this lesson to everything he does.

Accuracy of Book Profile

It is accurate.

Draw of Story

The story begins during World War II when a soldier discovers a strange Boeing. It catches our attention instantly.

Possible Drawbacks

No. The writer knows how to maintain tension and to draw the audience's attention.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY RELIES HEAVILY ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

It's a story that mixes World War II, Albert Einstein, time travel, and a group of kids looking for adventure. It all shows up on the first pages. To me, the hook is this miscellany of intriguing subjects.

Fanbase Potential

I do think so. The Bad Love Gang is very appealing, and the author added elements to the story that can easily engage the audience.

Awards Potential

Talking about the Holocaust can be sensitive. If the film presents the idea of saving prisoners more like "a poetic way to show our wish, as humanity, of erasing that sad chapter of our history" than trying to imply that "Americans saved those prisoners," I do believe it could win some awards.

Envisioned Budget

LARGE BUDGET

Similar Films/TV Series

JOJO RABBIT - THE FANTASTIC AND AMUSING STORY OF A BOY WHO LIVES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NAZIS; STRANGER THINGS - THE GROUP OF TEENAGERS WHO RIDE THEIR BIKES AND GO AFTER DANGEROUS ADVENTURES; DARK - TIME TRAVEL JOURNEYS THAT INVOLVE TEENAGERS; INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS - WORLD WAR II GAINS A DIFFERENT, AND SATISFYING, ENDING.

What’s New About the Story

Teenagers going back in time to save Holocaust prisoners sounds original. Adding Einstein to it makes it even more unique.

Lead Characters

The group of teenagers is diverse and exciting. Each member of the group delivers an intriguing point of view and adds different characteristics to the group.

Uniqueness of Story

Not a rare gem, but this script could become a highly entertaining film.
