Overview

How would you proceed to survive a huge global cataclysm - though not as bad as the one at the K-T bouundary? Your government no longer exists, 60 to 80 percent of the world's population is gone. It would be difficult, No? But, that's only one of the problems facing the survivors. Turns out descendants of former earthborn humans have returned...with a plan. The plan is to enslave all who remain...or kill off those who oppose them. Dr. Jonathan Prezlee, a rogue geologist, understands about global catastrophes and helps many to learn to adapt to the new world age. Yet, his job is not done but he's no fighter, no military man yet...
[Once I finished the events after 67,000 words plus I realized there would be as many words for the conclusion. That would be too much of a novel so I stopped there. It occured to me that this novel would be a great pilot for a SciFi channel series. I'm pricing it low as I have other projects and I cannot get to the conclusion of this story for a while. If you enjoy the story please be patient and if you do not like it...c'est la vie.]

About the Author

aloha, I was born in Providence, Rhode Island but began a life of many moves soon thereafter (3 high schools, 2 junior high schools...even 2 kindergardens). I kept moving in a westerly direction until I reached Hawaii. If I moved any further west it'd be east so I returned to California (& gave up a Hemenway scholarship from UH). Spent too much time in competitive athletic endeavors (I was told I was the only history major at La Crosse State U. I was there to play baseball at a very good phy-ed school). Yes, history was my major but you can do only 2 things with a history degree: teach or write. I wasn't ready to do either so I ended up as a pysch nurse (after doing this and that). My motto: Life is serious but...you cannot take it seriously. I've always been interested in people and the human condition and I have the gift of wonder (ex. if wisdom is important why does our culture - and others - ignore it and not esteem it? Our educational system doesn't even teach it in philosophy classes ['No more Kant and the color red already!]). Hence (or is it ergo?), I've matured enough to devote myself to the scribbling craft. Mahalo, Peter
