I have about six channels of stories I want to write. Definition is a new channel. This is the one where I let my optimistic view of humanity leave this fragile little planet of ours to rise to new challenges. I’m giving serious thought to making this into a long-term serial story in which each novel is like an episode in the story of humanity’s growth into space. It depends on the level of interest from you. If you like it, let me know. I have enough ideas to keep this one going for a very long time. Definition is the tale of an ex-military pilot who makes his living running goods and personnel around the solar system. A malfunction with his ship brings him into contact with an old war buddy just as a new conflict breaks out in our cosmic neck of the woods. He teams up with a young boy who is confined to a wheelchair but radically special in one other way, a displaced young man from a mining asteroid,and one angry ex-girlfriend. Together, they are pulled into the larger story of the Expansion.
The Renewal Series begins with a young man in a post-Breakdown America. He is a Reclamation Engineer, tasked with recovering usable land from the ruins of old real estate development. On his very first solo assignment out of training, he stumbles across a secret community in the wilds of Coffee County, Tennessee that changes everything he thought he knew about the world around him. He meets the leader of this community, who is a generation older and who lived through the events of the Breakdown, almost forty years in the past. The older man reveals his family’s story as our young engineer is pulled into a series of adventures that promise a struggle to define the direction of a future trying to recover from the cataclysmic events of the past.
