About the author
I was born in 1969 in Lexington, Kentucky. I have two wonderful children named Timothy and Zachary. 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’s degree in business administration from the University of La Verne and a master’s degree in 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 in Washington, DC, and live in Falls Church, Virginia. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to write a novel. I started my first novel about twenty years ago. About two years ago, I finished the novel A Time Not Yet Forgotten A Time before Hope, which I self-published. This is my second novel. My goals are to finish a novel at least once a year. I would also like to write a novel about time traveling or return to my roots of science fiction.
About the book
A thousand years before this story begins, two worlds, Eden and Metro, collided to create a new world. According to the law of existence, both worlds should have been destroyed in the collision, but an unknown force called magic held the remaining planet together. Even after a thousand years, there are some people who understand that every time someone is born with magic, forces that hold this world together are lessened. A very powerful warmonger named Lord Haden prepares for an invasion of Utopia. Utopia is soon overrun, but as Haden pushes north with his dragons, he is attacked by a powerful witch. Soon rumors spread that Haden is dead and his dragons lost. As his armies break apart, Sabrina, Haden’s youngest child and heir to his throne, takes control of the palace guards and starts moving her army toward Utopia to claim her empire. Other warmongers begin migrating toward the small kingdom to claim a part of Haden’s empire and to find his dragons. Another one of Haden’s children, Lord Scorpion, takes control of the forces in Utopia and tries to unite them once more. Haden’s dragon guild manages to capture the young witch Angelina, whom they believe has killed their master. When the dragon guild realizes that every warmonger within a thousand leagues would like to get their hands on Angelina, they leave her in the City of Hela. Unable to control her power, Angelina is being hunted by the warmonger Scorpion and his raiding parties. She is soon reunited with an old woman. Faced with her nightmares and having nowhere to go, she leaves her home with the old woman and her companions. With armies descending and powerful magic converging, Angelina must find a way to control her power and prevent the death of millions of people.
