The Future's Dark Past: Book One
My latest completed book won grand prize in the CYGNUS Sci-Fi writing context and was nominated a top five finalist in the Authors First writing contest!
In the late 21st century, nations band together against the hard-lined Jihad Liberation Front that results in a nuclear winter. With resources almost gone in the 24th century, the Time Forward Project uses a time anomaly to send genetically enhanced warriors to the past to stop the war before it ever starts.
Instead of risking a dimensional rift that could destroy them all, another group of time-travelers, the violent Kepler Separatists, send troops back to thwart their efforts. They intend to launch an armada to colonize the planet Proxima-B, which would mean the annihilation of its indigenous population, a reprehensible prospect to the Time Forward Project.
In the here-and-now, A.I. scientist Hunter Coburn is forced to partner with the group’s tough-as-titanium Kristen Winters on missions that hopscotch across the millennia to alter events that led up to the Purge War in 2098. Coburn struggles to regain his old life back, but with his moral compass spinning out of control, our uneasy hero must use his AI mainframe to figure out which group is right, even as he loses everything he holds dear. In this high-stakes treacherous race, his AI could be their best weapon or the inadvertent trigger.
"I just finished your book. Couldn't put it down!!! I read it for 5 hours straight. I really love the way you worked with the 'non-linear' timeline. It was interesting having characters coming in and out, their stories weaving around each other. I also like the conflicting idea of fixed vs elastic time. Also, I can't wait to find out what happens next!" Julia Stinson
