The Future's Dark Past-

​I finished your book. The last 100 pages are a whirlwind. I really enjoyed the unique voices of Kants and Kristen. And I enjoyed the book overall. You need to get it out there.

​​Really a good read.  Really creative overall. Hell, I was thinking your outline alone took one hell of an effort.

  • Characters come to life on the page and in the reader's mind​
  • Writing style often compared to David Baldacci (I totally apologize David for dropping your name here but it was required)
