Interview with the Author

Q - What makes the AEGIS Series so unique?
I am a huge fan of epic adventures. I loved The Chronicles of Narnia and Lord Of The Rings and always acted out fight scenes in my head as a child. I thrive on the stories of the classic clash of good vs. evil. I also appreciate clean stories that don't rely on rash language and questionable intimate scenes. Great stories don't need those. A solid plot, relatable characters, hard decisions, strong moral fiber, and nail-biting action carry a series to greatness. We all want themes that stick with us long after we are finished reading, ones that make us think deeply. Yeah, that is what sets this apart... and, of course, I have developed the story to keep you turning the pages in anticipation. You may hate me for making you stay up all night to finish!

Q - What books are in the series?
Another unique aspect of the AEGIS series is the Character Stories. These are novelettes based on each main character in the series to give you a glimpse into the extraordinary circumstances that shaped them into who they are today. These novelettes can be read in any order, but I suggest reading Catalyst Grove before diving in. Here is what is out so far:

AEGIS: Catalyst Grove
AEGIS: The Rift
AEGIS: The Frozen Throne (in process)
+1 more planned

Recollection: Graham Dawson
Mission Alpha: Eric Branson
+ many more to come!

I guess you will have to read and see :) )
