In the 26th century the last person on Earth wrote the epitaph for humanity. "Greed and stupidity came to rule our world. We all thought we would survive it. We were wrong."
Then an alien entity representing the Continuity intervenes by manipulating events in time to change the outcome. The Continuity is a universal civilization based on the premise that the individual is paramount to the optimum evolution of the whole. Conversely, failure to meet the needs of the one is a failure to us all.
This is the story of three men. The first, Hayden Parks, a man of great success who responds to the siren call of an alien. The second is Raven Prophet, who's temporal existence was accidentally separated into discrete individuals and spread through nearly a million years. And the third, Julian Cauldwell, is a self admitted failure at life until he is recruited by Prophet to help save humanity from extinction. Each will begin separate odysseys through time that will change the future of humanity.
Then came the Jiop, a very xenophobic species. And they had a far different plan for the Earth.

About the Author
Back when I was young pup people would always ask, "What are you going to do with your life?" Took a while before I decided the standard career approach wasn't going to work for me. So I decided to pursue what interested me at the moment and see where it would lead. In my 20's I worked to travel and traveled to work. So I saw a good part of our world and experienced it, not as a tourist, but as a participant in the local culture, working for a few months then moving on. Most of the time I did honest hard work, but sometimes it was a bit nefarious. In my 30's I got married and then fell in love with a classic wooden sailboat. Spent the next decade working as a carpenter in the south Florida boatyards, and of course sailing the Caribbean. My early 40's were a time of change, some good, some not so much. Sold the boat, moved to the mountains, then got divorced. It felt like I was starting life over so I decided to do something entirely different. I answered an ad and found myself working in a winery. Turned out I had a talent for it. Had the taste buds to develop a good wine and enough knowledge of chemistry to understand the process. But as the years passed, the passion for wine-making faded. It was time for something new. So I married again to a good woman and companion. Then a few years later retired to write, paint and sculpt. I have seen exquisite beauty and terrible ugliness. I have experienced the commonality of what it is to be human and the divisiveness that seeks to separate Us into Them. As an author I draw upon my travels and the people I met along the way and combine them with my love of sci fi, where imagination can take you beyond the limits of our existence. While the artist in me works in oil on canvas and sculptures in wood. Now as an old dog, I have the time to tell the stories that life has given me.
