Facebook: www.facebook.com/MethodOfLife (I'll be changing the Method of Life page, to a general Author Fanpage soon, so that it's not just about the one book, but about everything I'm working on.)

I've published my first novel, Method of Life. Buy it, read it, review it: www.amazon.com/dp/B0093JL7ZQ


The Synopsis:
In The Future:
There was no great war of nations, no thundering voice from the sky unleashing a rapture of judgment on the kneeling masses, and no great extinction level event of cataclysmic proportions. The Fall of Man came incrementally over half a century, in the form of economic and social decay, spiraling civilization into collapse without so much as a whimper.

At least that's the story people believed.

Many had tried throughout human history to control the world. Dictators had conquered half the globe and free men had seen their efforts squandered by the selfish masses. Never had either side done as much to unite humanity in common cause, as Jacob Morrison. Where they had failed, he succeeded, binding humanity in a single effort to halt his reign of destruction across the world.

Together, they repaid his treason with blindfolded gunfire. And after a time, all that remained of his legacy was a son that had never known his father and the broken world left to rebuild.

The Method of Life:
Caleb Johansen has spent his life hidden away from those who might wish to see him answer for his fathers crimes against the world. In an effort to to blame anyone for their poor lot in life, the past has finally caught up with him in the town of Rosa. A resettlement camp abandoned by the government and turned self sufficient community, Rosa is an island amid the wasteland that stretches out between the privately owned Districts, where a lucky few live lives of luxury.

As his ailing guardian prepares him for the next step in his life, Caleb must entrust his future to soldiers of fortune hired to ensure his protection. Harmon McCullough is such a man, though not without a conscience and the understanding of the larger stakes in play and the risks involved for the band of brothers standing with him and friends on the wrong side of his mission.

Creasy is one such friend, and must contend with the one obstacle Harmon presents, a currency not in great supply. Dispatched from the District New Haven to take Caleb into custody by any means necessary, Harmon and Creasy will meet for the last time in Rosa, both with the realization that nothing can stand in the way of completing their missions.

Caught in the middle of their everyday lives, Alaster and Veda Nelthrope must contend with being swept into the whirlwind of danger sweeping through Rosa. With problems of their own, their lives may never be the same as the interaction with events unfolding around them force resolutions from aspects of their lives they both had been afraid to face.

One night will change their lives forever and by the time the sun rises, their worlds will never be the same.
Interests
I've been working on what I call The New Haven Chronicles, (my near future military sci-fi universe/series) for the better part of seven years.  It's time for a break.  With any luck, I'm going to be going back to school in the fall, so that seems like a good time to step away from New Haven for a bit and for a lack of a better term, recharge.  I've been so devoted to one project or another for so long, that I haven't really lived.  Everything else has been on hold or taken a back seat to art.  So for at least a little while, there will a noticeable drop starting this fall. 

I have a few things coming before then and I'll certainly check in from time to time, so it won't be completely dead here.
