Meet the Author

Blake grew up just south of Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he spent his spare time in his World War Two surplus jeep, exploring the desert. When he could, he listened to old timers' tales of Geronimo, Pancho Villa, and Billy the Kid. His love and respect for the desert weaves through his stories.
An avid reader, Heitzman is influenced by his favorite writers: Stephen King, H.G. Wells, Bradbury, Vonnegut, Michael Crichton and Tony Hillerman.
A licensed Professional Engineer in the State of California with Masters Degrees in Energy Conversion and Urban Planning as well as experience as a college math instructor, Blake includes a dash of science and technology, along with a smattering of history and paranormal topics in his writing.
He is currently writing The Shaman Gene series, the story of Earth's rise to join galactic society. "A Far Traveler", is the first in the series. Two more novels: Panther Watches and Seekers of the Scroll are in draft.

     I have been very intrigued with this book. Can't go wrong with Aliens.. Great characters, fascinating story line, detailed and very interesting. Absolutly worth the read!. Great surprises.
     W. Blake Heitzman has a very creative and brilliant mind. I have also had the pleasure of interviewing him on my Paranormal web series World Wide Paranormal Network (W-W-P-N). His thoughts, theories and life stories are phenomenal. I have enjoyed this book and interviewing him! Great Author and person! Thank you Blake, I can't wait to read any up coming books and more of your blog!

    Loved it

    I have read alot of sci fi books since I got my nook, and this by far is my favorite. I even had to slow down reading so it would last longer. What more can I say, I'm going to read it again.

    Interesting concept with lots of surprises. Great characters.

    Some of the trips into the past were a little too much. Didn't really advance the story. Just extended the book length. A little pruning would improve the pace and make this a 5-star.

    Still a great read and I look forward to the sequal.
