I Write for

Science fiction readers already have considerable exposure to facts and ideas about the universe, galaxies, space flight, black holes, super novas, and the fact that our planet is subject to comet or asteroid strikes, and super volcanoes that have obliterated life to the point of extinction. The dinosaurs had their apocalypse several million years ago when that comet smashed into the Caribbean Sea and sent debris into the atmosphere that killed most all life on earth.

Only in the past fifteen years have scientists realized that Yellowstone National Park is one huge caldera that was left after the molten magma underneath exploded about 642,000 years ago and destroyed most of the life on earth. Now referred to as a super volcano.

The 132 square mile Yellowstone lake is getting hotter again, and some trees at one end of it have died - their roots burned, so volcanologists say it's due to explode again and there's nothing we can do about it. Mother nature rules and mankind is just another species that will expire at some point. It's evolution at its most evident.

I believe that science fiction (not fantasy) readers are more drawn to a story that includes
earth people that the readers can relate to and develop an interest in their lives. After that
a writer can add all the weird, but interesting events, places, and critters the author wants
to invent. Look no further than the former success of the Star Wars movies and the television series with Spock, and the other space travelers.   

FACTS and thorough RESEARCH are also the keys to holding a reader's attention. Research completed by Sandia National Laboratories at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, N.M. at the request of the DOE (U. S. Department of Energy), was a rare find, a real gem for an author. Sandia, using state of the art computer technology, determined what would happen on earth if a kilometer-wide comet hit in the ocean off of Long Island.

I simply took the most incredible facts about what would happen, and put the comet strike on the western edge of the Antarctic ice shelf, which oddly enough, is the most volcano rich area in the world.

Using the comet, moving at 135,000 miles per hour, I predicted the strike would cause a series of volcanoes to erupt again; along what's called the ring of fire, volcanoes that go up along South and North America to Alaska, across to Russia, and down past Japan.
"The Second Creation" is two stories that intertwine. The novel begins with some really dark sex and violence, but introduces the first prominent character, the antagonist. Later
the reader will discover, Brian Hudson and Charlotte Tennyson; both created at different
times in alien space craft that hovered over the earth, but born 100 years later from frozen embryos on another planet in our Milky Way Galaxy.

The science fiction continues to build with the Realm of the Galaxies, when the antagonist, Dunge Katorsay, leader of the Draco Galaxy; becomes an apostle of the Anti-Christ and intends to take over the ten galaxy realm. The ending involves a galactic battle in space that culminates near and on earth as this devil's apostle is faced with the second coming of a God child. This pulls the readers back to known territory --- the earth.

About The Second Creation: 

The Second Creation weaves together two stories; a life ending comet strike on earth, and inter-galactic war within the Realm of the Galaxies.
Research by Sandia National Laboratories Comet Impact Simulations brings incredible reality, and biosphere life begins a new human story.
Dunge Katorsay, an Apostle of the Anti-Christ, leads his forces from the Draco Constellation to defeat the realm and become its chairman.
Brian Hudson and Charlotte Tennyson are introduced as earth embryos. Both are born years later on another planet.
Charlotte is captured by Draco forces; her memory copied into her physical clone, who returns to Brian to spy on the realm. Charlotte's bisexual tendencies were revealed, and she is kept by Dr. Sorsin, the lesbian bio-engineering genius.
The ending above the earth, as their forces collide, is a horrific battle between the Anti-Christ and the second coming of a God child.
