About John Cosper

John's writing career began in 1994 when he took on the role of drama leader for his church's youth program. Later that year, he founded Righteous Insanity, a drama publishing company providing skits, plays, and writing services to churches around the world. In 2011 John became a kids ministry curriculum writer for Minister's Label, creating skits, games, lessons, and more for childrens-ministry-deals.com.

As time went on, John expanded his creative endeavors to film, web media, and his first love, science fiction. His credits include two feature films, multiple TV and web programs, and dozens of short films including the award winners "The Telemarketer," "Tolerance," and "Bots."

"Sci-fi is a great vehicle for exploring matters of faith." says the writer whose influences include Douglas Adams, George Lucas, Joss Whedon, Philip K. Dick, C.S. Lewis, and Isaac Asimov. "It also allows you limitless opportunities for creativity and humor."

His other passions include movies, sketch comedy, science fiction, comic books, football, cooking and professional wrestling. In 2014 he published a history of professional wrestling history in Louisville, Kentucky entitled Bluegrass Brawlers. In late 2014 he also released Eat Sleep Wrestle, a book about today's independent wrestling scene.

When he's not writing, you're most likely to find him spending time with his wife and kids.

While the alien menace was not an original concept, the story caught and held my attention from the beginning.

Religious overtones were prevalent as Trish weighs the sin of taking a life against the possibilities of saving the human species.

A good short story.

The afterword chapter indicated 3 short films were a prequel to this story. Googled and watched one of the films - and found its an amateur spoof film lacking humor - luckily only 15min duration.
My recommendation: read the story - its more entertaining!
