Overview

Jeff Sullivan, a geologist under contract to evaluate several mineral veins for the company that hired him, thought he was the only person on the as-yet-unnamed planet. A brigade of Global Communications and Information (GCI) battle marines forced him to re-evaluate the situation. What would GCI Marines be doing on this out-of-the-way place not one in a billion people had ever heard of?
A herd of mongolores, a species native to another world several hundred light-years away, tells Jeff that something was not right where he is. The actions of another group, an unknown alien species herding the mongolores, forces Jeff to not only seek shelter from the GCI Marines, but also warn them they are in danger.
Jeff volunteers to help the Marines discover who is behind the mongolore stampede, and several other hostile attacks. In the process, he helps uncover a major plot aimed at destroying both GCI and much of the Council of Worlds government – from within.
Fate and circumstances force Jeff into roles he had not expected to play for another decade, including that of husband, father, and most importantly for him and his family, protector. He finds himself embroiled in both GCI and Council of Worlds politics, trying to keep his wife, his family, and his new friends, safe.

Meet the Author

James Michael Ford is my fiction pen-name. I use this name partly as a tribute to my father, James (Jim) Weatherford, who taught me things I never knew I'd need; partly in self-recognition (Michael); partly in honor of my family surname (WeatherFORD); and partly for author name recognition. It's much easier to say “James Michael Ford” than it is to say “Michael Allen Weatherford”, or just plain “Mike Weatherford”. I've also learned from multiple reader friends that a single-syllable last name is more easily retained than a multiple-syllable name.

I've been a writer since about fourth grade. Most of my post-school writing was done for the Air Force, where I spent 26 years. I'm now retired and totally disabled. That leaves me time to freely commit myself to writing, both fiction and nonfiction.
I'm over sixty years old, and I've been married to my wife, the lovely Jean Smith of Littleton, Colorado, for over 45 years. We've had many children in our life, including our now four. Our youngest, Timothy, is just beginning to learn to read and write. Jean and I, along with Timmy, live in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
