Stephen Arseneault

Biography

Welcome...
I came to this planet fifty some odd years ago. After exiting my mother's portal, the doctor slapped me around until I started breathing the oxygen. I'll admit, at the time, I had no idea what I was doing or where I was. Being an infant Human, I was completely reliant on the responsible actions of others. It was a time that I have largely forgotten.

I reside in Central Florida with the wife and children. After thirty years in engineering, my time is now spent chronicling the adventures of fictitious heroes. They are off-world, fighting the good fight. For me? I'm stuck here on this planet in this feeble existence that we Humans are all forced to endure.

So, I ask you this... do you wish to escape the bonds of this surly planet we call Earth? Are you looking for a bit more adventure than what the grocery store has to offer? Do you worry about being enslaved by alien androids or six-eyed alien goats with lasers? Pew, pew, pew!

Yeah, that's what I thought. Asking yourself those questions and getting back an answer is the first hurdle to cross in the race to get off this world. Sounds like you are ready to venture out, to put this place behind you.

So crack open one of my books. Take to the heavens and let me shout this out to those who remain: "Watch out universe! Another Human is on the loose!"

Take care and I hope you have a great day!

Stephen

Experiments using the Large Hadron Collider produce the verifiable discovery of dark matter. Within days of this momentous accomplishment, Earth is inundated with wave after wave of intense electromagnetic radiation. Scientists haven't a clue as to why. Globally, power systems fail and modern communications cease to exist. Civilization quickly falls into chaos as both food and freshwater supplies run short. All security becomes local. Survivors will be those who are willing and able to protect and feed themselves. Small towns are cordoned off. City blocks become fiefdoms. Thousands of skirmishes take place on a daily basis in cities across the globe. Militaries, without clear orders from the top, take stand within their bases while only looking to defend themselves and their families. Without order, national governments cease to exist. This first book in the HADRON series follows one group of citizens as they make every effort to overcome the madness that ensues. Little do they know, their fellow Man is not their true enemy. A sinister species waits in the heavens above. For those who remain alive, the term survival-of-the-fittest will take on an entirely new meaning...

As the alliance aged, corruption crept in, allowing an overthrow that placed a dozen ruling families in charge. Without clear leadership, the New Alliance began to decay, and without change, it will ultimately fail. For Knog Beutcher, a three star veteran detective, living in the New Alliance is a struggle. He finds himself caught in the middle of the chaos as colonies rebel and populations riot. With the invasion of one of the galaxies by an external enemy, the alliance's future becomes uncertain.
