In the first five minutes, over a million-people will die. Then--it gets worse!

The solar superstorm wasn't supposed to hit Earth--the odds were against it. And yet, with barely a warning, everything changed. In a remote oceanfront town, life begins to spiral downward after the storm causes a global electrical blackout. As planes begin falling from the sky, Scott Montgomery watches helplessly as pandemonium consumes the world around him. But the loss of electrical power is just the first of the problems facing the survivors in the chaos that follows.

Social order crumbles as a steadily growing number of people realize that there are no longer any consequences for their actions. While the thin veneer of normalcy stubbornly shrouds the mounting collapse, Scott discovers the truth: Not just about the extent of damage to the world's infrastructure, but also the draconian plans one shadowy para-military organization has for regaining control and ensuring their own vision for the new world . . . one with deadly consequences.

Catalyst is a shockingly realistic and largely fact-based tale about how society copes when the world is thrust back to a time before technology.

About the Author

JK Franks is a writer, technologist, graphic designer and business owner. His journals and articles often cover business, technology, politics and self-development. His first published fiction novel, Catalyst: Downward Cycle is scheduled to be released Summer 2016 He was born in North Carolina and raised in the rural deep south where he developed a fierce appreciation in self-reliance and love of the outdoors. He also became an avid science fiction fan growing up surrounded by the works of Heinlein, Asimov, Bradbury and Clarke. As a deeply committed skeptic he maintains a healthy and irreverent distrust for almost everything proclaimed as truth without supporting evidence. These themes eventually formed the backdrop for his books. He is currently at work on book two of the Catalyst series as well as promoting his most recent novel. Mr. Franks now makes his home in a small town in west Georgia with his wife and family. Beyond writing his interest include cycling, cooking, music, travel and design. Writing is story telling. JK feels that is the most compelling aspect to any of his works. "To weave an entertaining story with believable, intelligent characters and plausible plots are a close runner-up."
