Unlikely heroes: Two kids and a Giant
JOURNEYING WITHIN ENEMY LINES

Kenneth and Savannah, humans from another time, have been taken – quite against their will – to the 73rd century, to find a mysterious and dangerous man named Hinjo Junta. All past and future histories point to him being the cause of destruction of the human race – and of the known civilization.

With scholarly “journeyman” Unquill, a giant, as their guide, Kenneth and Savannah must find Hinjo before it’s too late. And with Savannah suddenly learning of Unquill’s dark identity, and with the Constabulary and the members of The Black Brigade in hot pursuit, the three discover they must work together, to survive, and to fulfill their destinies.

Will Kenneth and Savannah succeed in their mission to find the true Hinjo Junta? What role will Unquill play in protecting the two underlings, and in preserving future history?

Excerpt
Kenneth crossed his arms. “I don't know. I mean, could you explain what all of this means?”

“All of this?” Hensen asked. He waved his hands about, indicating the whole room. “That will take a while. I'm not really sure what you mean. Let's just confine ourselves to this much: Unquill, you are not Hinjo. Not yet. But you will be. You will become Hinjo Junta.”

“To prevent this, the council has blacklisted you from the human race. Except, what they don't realize, and what they have always failed to realize, is that what they have done has always happened, and will always happen. They act with the confines of the predictions made by future historians some years ago.

“However, small one, here's the really important part. Are you listening? You shouldn't be here. Neither should you, small one with the long hair. Neither of you are anywhere recorded in future history. That makes you the wild card in this equation. You two might be the unexpected salvation the world desperately needs!”

Meet the Author

G.J. Winters “fell into” writing when a well-meaning teacher of his submitted his Creative Writing assignment for publication in the school paper. The local paper picked up the article and asked G.J. for publishing rights, to which the young G.J. agreed with some hesitation, as he felt “that wasn’t one of my best writings at the time.” The reality was that this article was written when G.J. was a junior in high school.
The article, which was a fictionalized version of a local myth surrounding a famous abandoned house near a swamp, was an assignment turned in as part of a mid-term exam. The teacher, Miss Mendez, thought G.J.’s writing was “exemplary” and showed “natural, raw writing talent for a person his age." The assignment called for “providing details to a local urban myth – provide background, using a local resident’s POV, and close with a vague hint of authenticity and realism."
The story, entitled “The Old Mansion by the Swamp,” appeared in the high school paper as a short story, but was later serialized in the local paper in 6 parts. G.J. added more characters and even a sub-story (which later became a story of its own, “I Was Shirley Massey” – a story which centered on a member of the fictional family who resided in the Massey Mansion in the late 70s and disappeared without a trace).
With the success of both of his original series, G.J. thought to venture into writing longer stories, this time with futuristic themes, as he has always been fascinated with travelling through time, future crimes, apocalyptic themes, and stories set in civilizations from the future.
G.J. identifies with sci-fi writers such as Isaac Asimov (“Kept me awake through most evenings in college.”) and Margaret Peterson Haddix (“My girlfriend at the time had fits of jealousy over my fanatical tendencies towards this author.”).
G.J. holds a degree in Chemistry, is an intern at the R&D division of a pharmaceutical manufacturing company, and lives with girlfriend Deidre, a magazine editor.
