From the Publisher that brought you popular short story series Chains of Darkness, Song of Teeth, Soulyte, The Magaram Legends, Requiem for a Dream,and Children of Time, now brings you, Children of Two Futures....

When faced with the task of saving humans from destruction, what will you do?
THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES AS KENNETH AND SAVANNAH UNRAVEL THE MYSTERIES BEHIND THE CAUSE OF HUMAN EXTINCTION

Savannah Proehl, Kenneth Yardrow and Unquill Hester visited Heracleion to find out what exactly is behind the murder of Imam Walid Felor, Olon Daniel, and Kaloa Syncrate. The only thing connecting these three people is their participation in a project that is supposed to make atmosphere ships capable of standing up to the Soonseen.

The Okuda Drive is perhaps the most important undergoing project, as it puts humanity on an even footing with the Soonseen.

Who can possibly be trying to stop a project that will protect the Earth from invasion?

There is only one way to find out—get to the center of all the events themselves.

In the second installment of this adventurous tale, Kenneth and Savannah visit an underwater factory in Heracleion where the Okuda Drive is being built. Being at the root of it all, they hope to see the bigger picture and piece things together.

But will they make it in time, when before they even got there, the unknown enemy has already set a plan for their destruction?

Follow Kenneth and Savannah as they find more answers as secrets unravel right before their very eyes....

EXCERPT
When the driver told them they had arrived at their destination, she didn't believe him at first. She remembered that President Slaan had wanted them to visit an underwater factory. She had thought of driving through a tunnel connecting the base to the mainland. She had not envisioned a submarine, much less one that looked so different from the ones she had seen in the movies.

The gray metallic mass of the submarine extended a longer distance than Savannah would have thought possible. Every submarine she had seen had been small vessels in which people had to duck their heads.

She supposed submarines from the seventy-third century had to accommodate the reality of people being very tall. It looked like a round, cylindrical section of metal that reminded Savannah of a stovepipe hat.

As they advanced on the submarine with rain pouring down all around them, a hatch opened to reveal a thin man wearing a dark blue hat with a yellow brim.

The man called out to them, “Just use the rungs there. Give a cry if you need assistance!”

The rain fell down in sheets, and Savannah's braid soaked through, sticking to her shirt. Her sneakers squished in the puddles that formed around her feet. She walked right up to the edge of the submarine, and then grasped hold of a series of metal rungs protruding from the hull.

She was the first to climb up to the top of the submarine where the man in the blue hat waited for them. He guided her onto the ladder that went down into the bowels of the ship.

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.
