Witnessing the economic shock-wave ripple through these communities from the gutting of such an industrial expanse had an impact on his psyche.

The second is on the shelf waiting to be edited, and the first needs to be cleaned up in editing. It's my mess, but I will keep at it. I learned a lot in self-publishing my first book and don't want to repeat some of those mistakes. It doesn't stop me from writing that's for sure. (less)

The comic book may not have taken off the way I wanted but the story for this never died and rolled around in my head for years until it built up to a point where I felt comfortable writing about it.(less)

Red Planet Pioneer - Modulus of Resilience (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2015 03:35AM
Description: The year is 2079 and colonizing Mars is about to become a very deadly business. Corporations are the drivers of a process that governments desperately want to regulate. Investors expect to see massive profits from taking such risks. With the world teetering on global catastrophe, Xavier Pentagrass has been sent to Mars to run the Red Planet Pioneer Corporation. As all there are about to find out it will soon become his personal cause. The technology driving the colonization process is the development of a new android race known as Dextoids. Breakthroughs in quantum computing have allowed for their manifestation. Humanity has grown to rely upon these robust creations for every single facet of their existence. Out in the barren plains of Mars, two Dextoids have escaped their minders. Their extensive knowledge can't prepare them for their freedom. Unhinged from humanity, they will shape the attitude for how the Red Planet will be colonized, and how mankind will treat the Dextoid population for years to come. Welcome to Red Planet Pioneer.
