Describe your desk
I have an old wooden desk that belonged to my grandfather. It isn't very comfortable, and the drawers don't always work so well. On the wall above my desk are collages from every family trip we've taken to Disney World. My laptop sits center, while a small lazy Susan at the left holds office supplies. The lazy susan also has a large hole at the top that is the perch for the white styrofoam ball covered in paint that I used for the CGI work on the "Enemy Within" cover. To the right is where I keep my Lost "McCluck's" Hurley bobble head figurine that was my muse for the last book in the "One Small Step" series.
From the smoking rubble of war on a faraway planet, the surviving Centauries—our intrepid but haggard band of explorers—emerge. But a new day reveals an unforeseen darkness.
Back home, Terrae Solaris is in peril. Risking everything, the Centauries set off on the final leg of their unenviable journey. But no one counted on the one factor that may undo them all: the enemy within.
Circling a yellow star forty-six light-years from Earth, a barren rock of a planet is coming alive. Lush forests teem with diverse wildlife, Cities are rising into the sky.
The Europan Empire is rising from the ashes!
And while the Centauries deal with the challenges of their mission, three thousand warships prepare to set off and lay siege to Earth. Can our heroes stop them? Where are they?
The solar system lays ravaged by conflict, and the instability of the Outer Rim threatens the very future of humanity. An opportunity for survival emerges: a dangerous undertaking calling for the Centauries. But the thrown-together mission is fraught with peril. Worse, they must work with the Coverts, a renegade Special Forces team whose leader seems to have his own agenda for the mission.
He set out to find himself. Fate found him instead.
High school senior Michael Gillen, living on Earth in the late twenty-fifth century, can’t wait to flee his wretched life! But when he sets out to a military academy to fulfill his lifelong dream of exploring the stars, things go from bad to worse.
