A Time Not Yet Forgotten a Time before Hope

About the author
My name is Billy J. Morris. I was born in 1969 in Lexington, Kentucky. I am married with four kids (two from a previous marriage and two step kids). I graduated from a small-town high school in Eastern Kentucky in 1989. I enlisted in the US Air Force right out of high school. I received a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of La Verne and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. While in the US Air Force, I was an aircraft mechanic for fifteen years and a contract specialist for nine years. My last assignment was in Germany where I retired from the US Air Force in May 2013 after almost twenty-four years. I took a job in Stuttgart, Germany for about a year and then a job in Kabul, Afghanistan. I now work as a contractor on Fort Belvoir. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to write a novel. I started my first novel about twenty years ago. I would write a little when I had time but just did not like the direction the novel was going. Then about four years ago I started writing the prequel to this novel I titled “A Time Not Yet Forgotten a Time before Hope.” About three years ago, I finished this novel and self-published this book. My second novel is unrelated and is title “Shattered Fate and the Laws of Existence.” My goals are to finish the “Time Not Yet Forgotten” series and at least one more book in the “Shattered Fate” series. I would like to write a time-traveling novel or return to my roots of science-fiction. I hope to get to a point where I can write a complete novel every couple of years.
About the book
This is the first book in the series “Time Not Yet Forgotten.” This book “Time Not Yet Forgotten a Time before Hope” starts out about five thousand years in the past as the human of Mars are just starting to explore our solar system. Mars sent six ships to Earth or to start the colonization of the planet. While the Martians are starting to colonize our solar system an ancient human race that lives beneath the surface of the Earth tried to warn the Martians that an alien race was about to harvest their planet to restart the ancient cycle that has occurred many times. Earth’s atmosphere turned out to be ionized and more than the Martians expected causing all six ships to crash in different places on the planet. The Martians do not heed the warnings, and all is lost except a small number of people who live beneath the surface of Mars. As the forest on Earth starts to grow, the survivors of the Martians’ ships start to repopulate the Earth and begin the cycle all over. It is now five thousand years later, and Earth is starting to explore the solar system, but will they listen to the Martians when they warn of the pending harvest and can anything be done to stop the cycle from starting again.
