About JD Lovil

JD Lovil was born in the small Town (population 795) of Lockesburg in the southwestern Arkansas, in the year of 1957. That was the year of the first canine cosmonaut. Enjoying early life as Farm Hand, Assistant or Slave, he learned just enough about hand labor, mechanics, metalwork, plumbing and electrical work to be dangerous, and far more than he ever wanted to know about many other unpleasant tasks. Enduring the slings and arrows that is childhood, he eventually entered into University life, where he dabbled in biology, Physics and Computer Science before settling on a major in Chemistry. Surviving many fine adventures over the years, and after having been rumored to be an agent for the Arcturian anti-movement movement, the Author has settled into the Phoenix Metro Area in Arizona, where he hopes to avoid life's complications.

Reviews

Review by: Marlene Stotts on March 18, 2013 :
This is a well written science fiction novel that is both creative in it's content and vast in it's scope. What I enjoyed most was the depth of the ideas, and the unlimited size of the authors imagination.

Personally, I grew up on Star Trek The Next Generation so the idea of a universe travelling colony ship is right up my alley. Praxis is one of the Worldships launched in 2089 to recolonize after Earth suffered a super-volcano eruption, nuclear war, and invasion. The story follows the ship and its science minded inhabitants as it makes its journey.

Not only is the book bridled with great technological ideas, but it's also a story filled with well developed characters woven together with a clever story line. Highly recommended!
