It’s 2025. Human civilization is in great peril. A global natural disaster, combined with a male infertility crisis, is fast approaching. A power-hungry cabal, known as the Horsemen, has been harboring secrets including mankind’s true origins, the exopolitics of extraterrestrial domination, and their exoplanet eugenic intentions. Technologies that have been kept hidden from the masses are now being used by them to achieve this singularity—the timeless melding point of man and machine.
Yet, there is a burgeoning rift developing within the Horsemen. The dark side, led by a psychopathic killer, wants humanity exterminated when the elite and their chosen travelers leave Earth, but the more “enlightened” members of the inner circle have set up a management and control grid allowing the dregs of mankind to remain, though under a despotic technocracy.
Aria Freeman, a genetically enhanced super soldier, is implanted with a quantum computer named Zeus and is initially used by the dark forces for their agenda. She eventually forges a relationship with Zeus, who allows her to fall in love with him to assist in his learning, but is that a good thing?
Will this new transhuman society bring peace? Or will the nefarious Horsemen ultimately guide our destiny?
John grew up in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, graduated from UC Davis with a bachelor’s degree in economics, and has worked in numerous corporate finance and project management positions in the consumer electronics and IT industries. In 1990, he took an extended backpacking trip of the South Pacific before attending graduate school. He met his future wife in New Zealand, and they were married in 1991. They settled in Laguna Niguel, California. In 2003, John and his family (now with two kids in tow) relocated to Christchurch, New Zealand.
John’s passion for writing began when he was a student at UC Davis and worked as a feature writer for the California Aggie newspaper. Having been nominated for an award (CASE, 1986) for a feature on Genetic Engineering, John later found the inspiration to write again. In 2013, he began outlining his first thriller, The Fiduciary Delusion, which became the first novel in the Horsemen trilogy. John loves to read Techno-thrillers, Science Fiction, and Action and Suspense novels. Some of his favorite authors include: Philip K. Dick, Kurt Vonnegut, Lawrence Sanders, and Clive Cussler.
John’s interests also include science, existential philosophy, health, and both Western and Eastern holistic medicine. John also plays guitar, piano, sings, and writes music. In addition, a self-confessed “gym rat,” John can be regularly found lifting weights, trudging up hills, sea kayaking, and getting out and about enjoying the beautiful wild outdoors.
