What can you tell us about your new release, Frequency?
My latest novella, Frequency is a science fiction story that takes place in the year 2025 in North Carolina.
The story is centered on a fictional radio telescope that records an alien message from a distant galaxy. Shortly after the discovery is announced to the public through a national press conference and uploaded on the observatory’s website, people become affected by a mysterious illness that sweeps through the United States. The disease creates brain tumors in those infected and drastically alters their personalities.
As the story progresses, two neurosurgeons investigating the epidemic come to the amazing realization that the disease is somehow connected to the alien radio message and the observatory.
I believe readers will enjoy Frequency because of how the novella blends fiction with real science. It was a lot of fun to write the book and I am hopeful science fiction fans will find it entertaining.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I have always enjoyed writing since I was a young boy. At age twelve, I was on a baseball team that captured a world championship at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The experience inspired me to write a book about the team and our accomplishments. It was published in my freshman year of high school and I have been in love with writing ever since.
