Oakton is the fictional story of a group of teens from rural Nebraska. Set in the near future (March, 2029), these three best friends find themselves trapped in their tiny home town during historic river flooding and powerful thunderstorms which unleashes the spirits of numerous Pawnee warriors wanting to reclaim their sacred lands. Past town conflicts have created an environment where the adults refuse to speak but the teens are secretly best friends. Now they must battle together using the resources at hand to fight for their lives and protect their families, while their parents refuse to believe something could really be wrong in town.
The teens may be outnumbered but they have at their disposal: two rifles, one crossbow, a dog and a horse, robotic spiders, and a strong friendship.

About the Author
Writing is a hobby for me. I've written over eight books since I started in 2010. I like to blend genres like mixing sci-fi with mild horror, like my book Oakton. Many of my protagonists are of high school age, many of my stories take place in the era before 1995. Oakton is the only one so far I set in the near future, because trying to estimate what technology and society will be like a decade or two ahead is difficult to do, but I think I got it really close in Oakton. One of the things I like about writing is getting to know places I've really never been to (not counting passing through on the highway, only stopping for gas) and doing research to use them in my stories. One of those places I use a lot is Amarillo, Texas. I've used locations all over Texas, Nebraska, Michigan, New Mexico, Florida, and California. All my books are written using Word 2007 on an Asus Republic of Gamers laptop. Editing, proofreading are done with a Kindle Paperwhite and Word. My books can be found at Barnes and Noble and Kobo.com with more stores coming. I like to hear from readers, especially if my work touched you. Email me at borischen zoho com I am not on Facebook, Linkedin or Twitter. If you want to 'reach out' to me, please use email. Upcoming books: 'Adventures in a Parallel World,' and 'The Dig.' AIAPW should be released in early 2016.
