From the charcoaled ashes of remorse and uncontrollable anger must rise the embodiment of what he was meant to be—a savior for all humankind. However, who he is saving them from and why propels this demigod on a pained journey beyond his home planet, where he must face much more than just an advanced offshoot of humanity. He and the diminutive Bookworm will fight for Earth, but at a cost even a demigod will not be able to rectify.
To save the one you love, be prepared to risk it all.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I tend to write like I’m actually telling a story to someone who’s sitting next to me. I try and keep things flowing by giving details, but not to the point of boring readers to death. Over all I try and make it fun and interesting without getting too silly or serious.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Just write. Don’t worry if your first draft is marred by spelling and grammar errors. Just keep going until you have a finished story. Then you can go back and edit the crap out of that thing. Seriously go to town on that bad boy.
I moved around a good deal as a kid, but being a navy brat is like that. My dad read to me a good deal instilling a love for books and stories. I attended the Art institute of Toronto, where I learned a bit of art, but renewed my love of storytelling. I finished in 2006, and tried my hand at making comics and graphic novels and discovered that I can tell the story better when I don’t have to confine my characters to pictures. Words offer a bigger canvas, and more colors than I could possibly Imagine. In 2010, I wrote my first story “Misfortune” . It sat around until someone read it and said I should just put it on Amazon.com. That takes us to today… where I’m trying to promote my book…. and writing this… and this… and I’ll stop now.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I always liked the stories about unlikely heroes. If they’re really unlucky all the better. What drove my writing for this particular piece, was that the main character was both, but his misfortune was the thing that gave him an edge. It’s what makes him special and is the driving force behind the whole story.
