The square cloud, the portable tornado, and the Pirate have all been captured by a bungling psychotic religious cult that wants to destroy Los Angeles. God help us.


Southern California, 2003 - The world of digital technology is exploding. For wimpy university physicist Theophilus Spivak, some of it explodes right in front of him! When the Channel 8 tower blows up during The Pirate's bootleg TV broadcast, Theo and his rocket scientist friend, Kevin Oxley, become the prime suspects.

Theo, Kevin, and their boss, Dr. Francis Weksler (the man who created the first stealth airplane) accidentally invent a device that controls weather. When they fly a tornado as if it were a radio-controlled drone, a half-witted, pseudo-religious cult imprisons them and demands weaponized weather. Coerced into creating a force that will destroy Los Angeles, Theo and his colleagues must decide whether to save the world ... or themselves.

With audacious creativity, this high-tech, high-tension, romantic comedy adventure reveals things you've probably never before seen, including: horse lips, robotic lizards, flaming zeros, the shoe-tree, exploding machine guns, that teardrop tattoo, a man-eating Rexlithar, and . . . a miracle. Funny and full of surprise, Wild Blue is flank speed clean entertainment with an occasional conservative jab at society. You'll smile warmly at the clumsy romance. You'll ponder startling facts. And you will laugh out loud. But if being "politically correct" is important to you, don't even get on this bus!

About the Author

There's a reason why reading WILD BLUE: Saving the World with Duct tape and WD-40 feels like you're watching a blockbuster movie... it was originally a screenplay that came within minutes of being produced with two of Hollywood's top Action/Comedy stars. When the movie project got canceled, Earl turned the script into this hilarious romantic comedy/action-adventure novel. Some readers, in fact, have said reading WILD BLUE is like watching "Romancing the Stone" meets "Back to the Future".

Earl Trout has been working in mass media ever since he became a rock 'n' roll disk-jockey on his little hometown radio station at age fifteen. He had to walk to the studios because he was too young to drive. His laugh-out-loud newspaper column translated well to broadcasting and he quickly became a successful major-market radio personality. After eight years on the air in Los Angeles, he transitioned to off-air success as General Manager of multiple radio stations.

A life-long "car freak", his all-time favorite job was Executive Director of the Kansas City Automotive Museum. "Hey, I got paid for hanging out with old cars!"

Earl has written and sold about three dozen television scripts and optioned two screenplays, one of which became WILD BLUE. And he sometimes sends an amusing text to his wife.

He loves to play golf, pickleball, cards, and board games with his best friend, Dianne, who also happens to be his wife.
