Overview

An ancient alien race bent on decimating humanity.

An unlikely group of heroes caught in the turmoil of an invasion.

One young man with extraordinary abilities forced to cope with his heritage.

When baby Marc loses his mother from a shooting at a busy mall, he is placed into foster care. Struggling through life, no one willing to adopt him from fear of his unique gifts, Marc's adolescent years are filled with pain, struggles and decisions no one should have to cope with. Written off as crazy, besieged with unusual abilities, Marc has given up on life.

Until Now.

Beings from another world, having suffered greatly from their own society's war of science versus religion, have made their presence known and that their visit is not a peaceful one. With their race dying, they are running against the clock to certain extinction unless they act now and take control of the human population. However, they did not factor in Marc, an experiment from the past; half-human, half alien, whom they thought to be dead. Now, with the help of an unlikely cast of heroes, Marc must survive long enough to understand and control his abilities. If he does not succeed, humanity will be lost without him.

Meet the Author

A freelance writer and a graduate in an IT discipline, I have always had a fascination with new technologies and their impact on society which is often showcased in my writing.

By day I am a cubicle dwelling creature, staring at spreadsheets and lines of code, trying my best not to be swallowed up in the numbers staring back at me. I love using my abilities to solve problems and create solutions but often find myself frustrated at the lack of opportunity to use my creativity.

The only remedy I have found is to periodically break away from a long stretch of keyboard mashing and coffee drinking to jot down a few ideas floating around in my mind. As a result of this, I stepped into writing stories in the evening using the notes I wrote throughout the day. Of course, this is all in between changing diapers and running around the house with a balloon tied to my butt pocket for my daughter to chase. Yes, I'm a dad and an exceptional husband - don't verify this with my wife though.

I enjoy reading stories with characters that I can relate to. I read mostly science fiction and fantasy. Authors that I enjoy have been Stephen King, Terry Goodkind, Terry Brooks, George R. R. Martin, and Dean Koontz.
