A different take on the events through the lens of a creative author.
- If Roswell in 1947 was a real event what would it look like today?
- If you discovered an alien spacecraft that reacted to your commands what would you do?
Elliot grew up in New Mexico raised by his aunt and her husband. His parents mysteriously disappeared on their ranch around an outcropping in an obscure area of their ranch. First, his father went missing. Much later his mother also went missing in the same area.
Moving to California after college Elliot secures a job with a large tech firm Ohmicron. Developing his own inventions while being the fair-haired boy, Elliot has a moral compass that is not in line with the company.
Providing him an assistant who was primarily to spy on him goes awry when his assistant falls in love with him. Elliot a bit of a risk taker learned to rock climb back in New Mexico. When his friend Greg was too busy to accompany him, Susan his assistant decides she must learn enough about it so she can get Elliot to notice her.
Secretly taking classes with her friends, she learns just enough to invite herself along.
Romance blossoms when Elliot shows Susan his love of rock climbing. Some of those were even too much for her as she slips and lands on her bottom near a dry creek bed.
Allowing her time to pull herself together Elliot coils the ropes and gets the gear ready to make another ascent when everything changes. Watching a lizard escape the heat scurrying under a crevasse in the rocks, Elliot assumes that there must be a small place or opening.
Dislodging some small pebbles in that same direction of the lizard’s den, while wrapping up the rest of the gear, Elliot hears a mysterious metallic clunk from far below them. Susan also heard it as she was now no longer thinking of her fall.
What they were both unaware of is how that “clunk” would change their entire lives. They also had no idea of how that discovery would affect the lives of every human on earth and some races who were in another galaxy.
Under Roswell was inspired by the early termination of Stargate Universe. Never trying my hand at writing I was always one to be entertained, never the entertainer. When the writers were struggling toward the end of the show with the droid robots from hell, the writing was on the wall.
I was not surprised when the show unceremoniously ended.
Not ready to let them be stranded between galaxies with an uncertain fate on a lark I tried my hand at fan fiction.
Two hours into the project I came to the conclusion that I could tell a story.
Scrapping the project, I started Under Roswell.
Four years later I wrote the end which is probably the only book that I have ever written with the words “The End.”
Thirty published novels later I am still writing as time permits.
The saga of the Starduster is my number one best seller.
Trying my hand at many different genres, from Science Fiction to romances of various kinds, it has been a fun ride. Yes, I have even written a few slightly tawdry novels including some same-sex love.
Some of the e-mails ask why I tried the LGBT stuff. “Why not?”
Other than some minor plumbing differences, we are all the same. It is my goal to unite us as a people instead of following in the footsteps of the media and others that would seek to destroy us through bigotry and yes ignorance.
In some of my novels, I address things like labels and using sexuality as a weapon and yes being a bully.
Under Roswell is a science fiction that is actually YA. Taking some of my characters through Russia while taking others into other galaxies is just part of the fun. You too can ride along as our heroes save the earth from inevitable destruction.
Thanks for following me and reading along as I take you on a journey with me through the trials and tribulations of being an author.
