In 2075, following the World Annihilation Period and Earth's 50-year
transformation, the detested Skalag clan periodically pillages
Ukkiville to murder and enslave its inhabitants. Dangers intensify as
vicious, mutant beasts lurk in the shadows, preying on villagers. At
the heart of this evil, the twisted scientist, Zolokt, creates killer
combinations of animals, plants, and insects to inflict his acts of revenge.

Infuriated by the savage attacks, a young leader, Thoruk, and his two lifelong
friends pledge their lives to protect Ukkiville. The determined ruler
aims to forever put an end to Zolokt and his followers, for only then
will true freedom reign in The New World.

Blue Moon Generation
The New World Series Book 2

Many peaceful years have passed since the devastating battle of 2075. The
new generation, conceived under a mystical blue moon, is about to
awaken to the vicious attacks unveiled through their parents' tales.
Once, living only in youngsters' nightmares, ferocious mutant beasts
now stir in the shadows of Ukkiville — even during the light of
day. Blood-thirsty predators with glowing eyes, gnashing teeth, and
razor-sharp claws prey on unsuspecting victims.

Caru, the brave but brash young daughter of Ukkiville's ruler, fears
nothing. Trained by the best and possessing powers of the mind
greater than her father's, she leads her two lifelong friends into
the teeth of intensifying perils.

Meanwhile, in enemy caverns on the other side of the mountains, descendants of
the evil Zolokt prepare as well, cloning savage creatures from DNA
combinations of animals, insects, and plants. Only time will tell how
many of the deadly muclones get released.

Caru turned toward Protovil, two weeks younger than her and brawnier than most boys his age. "Proto, get us closer — more to the left."
As the rickety, white vessel neared, Caru grabbed the floating bottle, attached to a long, weighted string and a couple of hooks spaced a foot apart.
She lifted it. No wiggle.
"Nothing on this one." She extended the dangling contraption toward her wiry cousin, Foxulka. "Here, Fox, wrap the line and put it in the rear."
"Surely." The sometimes-stubborn lad, who used every imaginable shortcut and variation of the English language snatched the makeshift bobber.
Whipping his head to flip long, jet-black hair from his eyes, he wound the string around the old wine bottle and gently placed it behind him. "Ow! Pricked my blasted finger! Shoulda
bin careful."
He smeared the blood across his faded, purple shirt; the one he'd wear every day if only his ma would let him.
Caru motioned toward another marker. "Over there, let's get the next one."
"Caru, watchit!" With eyes the size of walnuts, Fox pointed over her shoulder at the lake. A large dorsal fin plowed through the water directly at her.
The big, trailing wake suddenly became long, narrow snapping jaws with glimmering teeth. As the aquatic beast accelerated and continued its beeline toward Caru, she yanked
her hand back, narrowly escaping its razor-sharp bite.
Wicked, what was that? Her heart pounded against her chest.
Standing next to her, Proto banged the oar against the side of the boat. The deafening booms echoed through the air.
The finned creature turned, glanced at him, and dove straight down, splashing its tail before it vanished. The bottle plunged underwater.
Sucking a quick breath, Caru jerked her head to one side, then the other. "Where did it go? Keep looking! Proto, get ready to chase it!"
A booming voice shot from the distance. "Caru, what's happening?"
She spotted her father on the shore. "I don't know — something big grabbed the bait. We're going after it!"
"No, don't...!"
Ignoring her father's shout, she pointed at the huge beast bursting the water's surface. "Over there! Go!" She squinted, searching through the bright reflections off the Lake of Dreams.
The creature erupted above the surface 50 yards to the right. Caru leaped to her feet and pointed. "Starboard! Two o'clock! Row, Proto, now!"
She waved her arm in a circular pattern toward the destination. "Let's get that blasted thing!"
Grabbing the oars, Proto rapidly pumped the paddles, and the boat jerked forward.
Caru wobbled and fell, almost tripping over the edge.
While the monster dove again, Fox's voice rang out from the rear. "Brutish, that sucker's huge!"
The aquatic predator submerged and popped to the surface time and time again as the chase ensued. Several minutes later, it slowed to a drift, sunken and invisible in the deeper water.
The trailing bottle, anchored to the mysterious being, floated to the top.
As they neared, Caru hooked the cord with the handle of her knife. She wrapped the line around a cleat, securing the marker to the bow. Hand over fist, she and Proto pulled the
weighty freak of nature from the depths.
Intrigued by small, white spikes appearing from the black abyss, Caru bent closer for a better look. Enormous, menacing jaws rushed toward her.
"Watch out!" Proto yanked her back. With one swift movement, he snatched the small battle-ax from his belt and gashed the beast's neck.
It spun toward the bow and dove, jolting the craft forward as Caru clung to the sideboards for dear life. The vessel streaked across the water for several yards, suddenly veering to
the right.
She and her friends flew through the air as the boat flipped over. Splashing with arms and legs churning, she and her buddies scrambled toward shore.
Thoruk dove into the lake and feverishly swam toward the children. Ghost and the twin bears followed.
Once again, the dorsal fin sliced through the water in a direct line toward the kids. Thoruk hollered. "Fox, behind
The teeth of the tenacious being shimmered in the sun as its jaws opened wide. Blood streamed from its slashed neck, staining the pool around it.

Crimson Winter
The New World Series Book 3

On the verge of winter in 2105, a vicious attack soaks a pasture with
blood and crushes Ukkiville's serenity. Ominous premonitions haunt
Hoot while similar dangers surge across Old North America. Tormented
by nightmares, the courageous young warrior recruits her friends to
join her and hunt the demon of her dreams. Before long, they
encounter a beast far more ferocious than any discovered before.

Suspicions fall squarely on the village's nemesis, as Hoot and the leaders of
Ukkiville fear Zo and his Skalags have advanced their DNA process to
create monsters nobody can control. With little choice but to ready
themselves to thwart increasing slaughters, Hoot, her brother,
Skeeter, and a precocious android named Andralec hone their skills
and special powers. Until the inhabitants of Ukkiville and the
surrounding territory halt this growing threat, survival remains all
but uncertain.

While writing The New World trilogy proved to be one of the most exciting
challenges of my life, if anyone had told me six years ago I'd be
writing science fiction action-adventure novels, I would have
declared them bonkers! For most of my life, I had been an engineering
and programming nerd whose main reading materials included technical
scientific articles and books with little time to read novels of any
sort of fiction.

The few dreams I experienced during my lengthy career as a Sr. Software
Development Manager at IBM mostly focused on conjuring solutions to
tough technical issues at work. Never did sleep delve into imagining
some fictional adventure. But that all changed after I retired from
IBM in March of 2007 at age 53 with 30 rewarding years of service.
The extra time on my hands provided plenty of hours to devote to more
creative endeavors.

My initial attempt at writing capitalized on my 30 years of investing in
all sorts of financial assets. I wanted to share my knowledge with
our children to aid their financial planning. After completing more
than 400 pages of the manuscript, I joined a writers' group. The
members liked the technical content but advised me to liven it up to
make in more attractive for my younger target audience of high school
and collage graduates getting a start on life. I came up with an
fictional world and a couple of quirky characters to weave into my
investing lessons.

The members loved the improvements, but an unexpected problem bared
itself: my brain refused to churn out nightly ideas about
investments. Instead, my dreams gushed with captivating characters
and an intriguing new world with plenty of vicious beasts lurking in
the shadows of my mind. I had no choice but to follow the fate which
unfolded night after night, providing oodles of exciting material to
more than fulfill any writing desires. I provided my financial
manuscript to my daughters, and from that exhilarating change of
direction in 2014, I've been creating a fascinating new world at the
turn of the next century!

I began writing my first novel, The New World: A Step
 in June of 2014 and published it on June 28, 2015.
A little over a year later, on October 1, 2016, I published Book 2 of
the series, The New World: Blue Moon Generation. After a
bit of a delay due to the challenges of a serious family illness, I
completed the final novel of the Trilogy, The New World:
Crimson Winter
 and published it on November 6, 2018.
