Gary S Sloan
Hello, Reading World, I am Gary S Sloan. How nice it is to entertain you.
To help in knowing me better, I am a former professional drummer who writes to sustain his creative spirit. I live in the great city of Denver, Colorado, where I golf a lot, take pleasure in the magnificent outdoors, enjoy the diversified weather and relish in the traffic and the constant bustle.
At present, I have published four books on Smashwords:
"Water Warriors" is a science fiction story pitting the present against the future. In the year 2622, Earth's water is poisoned, and so are the economic elite who brutalize the planet and its desperate population. The Aven, a hidden enclave of deserters, subsist inside Fairchild Mountain, where a battle for their freshwater lake ensues -- one fought more for the future than the near present.
"Summit Seekers" is light science fiction about a young, disillusioned technical writer who is moved past suicide by an unusual encounter, challenging him to confront cruel designs by deviant power-brokers to save thousands of people from famine, disease and death.
"Legend of Yankee Boy Basin" is a paranormal western about the ancient Nephretari Indians, who disobey their Great Spirit and are banished into eternal servitude, lest saved by the eons-old legend that tells of their passing.
“Heller’s Canal” is a western adventure located in Littleton, Colorado Territory, where selfish men steal flowing rivers and vast oil reserves, thus threatening the existence of the new farming town and the glories of its promising future.
Know also of my ardent caring for writing, the superb enjoyment it brings me and the honor it provides in knowing it pleases my readers.
Any who wish may contact me at my website, www.garyssloan.com, or through Gary S Sloan on Facebook or on Twitter.
In closing, for those who already know me, thank you for your readership and your continued support. For those I am unfamiliar with, I hope to get to know you soon.
