A two day meteor storm wiped out the world's power and communications, as well as triggering a series of plagues which decimated the world. With no prevention, the world went into seclusion, avoiding one another. One man and his daughter devise a treatment, infecting people by injecting them with their plasma, which also transfers their ability to survive it. Threatened to be overwhelmed as people learn about their treatment, David sets those he's treated out into the world to sicken others in the hopes of spreading his treatment beyond himself.
This book is PG rated (language, though the previous two books in the series are for adults).
Having spent a career working as a computer specialist in the financial industry in Chicago and New York City, I traveled a lot and met a lot of varied characters. I bring that experience, and a history to looking at problems in unexpected ways to weave interesting stories together.
I struggled with writing for a long time, but could never finish anything, until I realized that while I could suspend my disbelief long enough to read a novel, I couldn't do it long enough to write one. Thus I decided to ignore the standard 'rules' of writing a story.
Every time I write a story, beside a basic plot and a theme, I create a particular writing challenge (like creating a cast of hundreds, or killing of most of my characters). It may not always work, but it keeps me interested, it makes me work that much harder, and it provides some unique tales.
