Growing up in upstate New York, I have always had the love for my small town but had an itch to get out and make a difference. I graduated from Georgetown University and spent my 40+ year career dedicated to helping others through the non-profit sector. My work took me all over this great nation and gave me the opportunity to meet incredible people and see the wonders of nature firsthand.
Writing has been a constant thread in fulfilling my passions. Whether it be to persuade donors to help contribute to an environmental cause or to inspire them to take actions to press their elected officials to adopt sensible policies. Shaping my own science fiction story presented a unique way for me to tap into the experiences I’ve had to create a compelling read.
This book is a product of walks around the White House and through our beautiful parks. It touches upon threats to our environment and political system while hopefully causing readers to give thought to nature’s creatures around us.
As a resident of Northern Virginia, it was fun weaving some local spots into the book. I hope you enjoy it!
Some experts say there could be thirty billion cicadas living below human ground. But a renowned scientist says even that number is way, way too low.
There could be one trillion cicadas waiting to rise.
Imagine being invaded by millions of human-hating, 9-foot blood-thirsty cicadas. These flesh-eating mutants have waited for over a decade to wreak their revenge on those who have killed their ancestors.
They have skin like Kevlar, communicate telepathically, and spew an acidic venom that can melt steel. No one is safe.
How would you stop them?
