A couple of years ago I was looking for a story about a prisoner who went back in time and had the chance to relive his life. After searching for hours, I realized no one had written what I thought was an obvious storyline.
That was when Relive: The Journeyer Series Book One was conceived. I’ve never thought of myself as a writer, just a lover of stories. It is my goal to share that love with my readers.
I plan to write several books a year for the rest of my life. I’ve got my next book WARLORD coming out early next year.
Gerald Holstrom is an inmate at Folsom Prison. He wakes up every day with the same regrets. His feet are tired, his back aches and his hands shake from the last 47 years as the prison’s most popular barber. He tells himself to live one day at a time, to focus on what he can change and let go of what’s behind him. He believes that if he never talks about the crime that landed him a life sentence at the age of 19 he can leave it behind, and it won’t define him. So he waits, he serves time. Until on a fateful summer afternoon one of Gerald’s young friends angers the wrong people. Gerald is met with a life and death choice, and this time he makes the right decision. His dying wish is to see the sky without barbed wire blocking his vision. He fades out…then back in. Only now, there is no barbed wire. Now, his legs and back don’t hurt. His hands don’t shake. He’s 19 again, and he hasn’t made the decisions that will lead him to 47 years and a death at the end of a sharp piece of metal. He’s in the world he grew up in; 1950’s California. How did he get there? Is he actually going to get the chance to make better decisions? Will he be able to change his future? Not everything is as it seems, Gerald isn’t alone, there are others out there like him. When he meets a teenager who confidently wields a machete, he begins to understand the high stakes of his new life. He’ll have a second chance, but at what cost? Gerald’s soul hangs in the balance, as does the existence of everything he’s ever loved.
How do you change the future when those more powerful are fighting you at every step?
The only thing Cameron is more concerned about than her next paycheck, is how to keep a steady supply of opiates in her system.
That is, until the entire world crumbles. Alien ships descend from the sky wiping out every major city on the planet. Great…
With 99% of the world’s population a cloud of dust, Cameron seizes the role of Warlord. It isn’t easy to stay in control when enemy clans are constantly attacking and her own people try to kill her on a weekly basis.
It doesn’t help that the aliens are harvesting every natural resource from the planet either. Cameron maintains her power with a heavy trigger finger.
When the aliens begin to abandon the husk of the planet, Cameron has to come up with a plan to save her clan from starvation.
She has knowledge of an alien outpost that might have the resources humanity needs to survive. The last thing she expects is to run into the most pompous man she’s ever met while exploring the outpost.
But that’s the thing…
Drac isn’t a human at all. He’s one of the Neandratons, the alien race that destroyed earth.
They abandoned him to die on the planet. Cameron has a feeling that Drac knows exactly how to save humanity.
Can she get him to cooperate without resorting to her favorite method of persuasion: a 9mm slug to the forehead? Doubtful.
