About the author:
The child of hippie adventurer parents, I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and spent my early childhood, sequentially, on my father's sailboat, an island in the territorial waters of Costa Rica, a school bus refurbished as a home, and a ramshackle house near the Ft. Lauderdale shore with a leaky roof and a sand yard.
Something in all that made me decide to join the military at 18, and then get a degree in History, a diploma in Accounting, and an MBA while pursuing a career in finance and management. In a family of bohemian writers and performers, I suppose inevitably there would be a black sheep.
Now, I'm putting my muse to work, and I hope you enjoy the results!
When the aliens came, the world changed forever, but not even they imagined how.
Professor Haral Karden is wry, skeptical, and the longstanding leader of his field - the history of first contacts between cultures. When aliens arrive in a fleet of beautiful ships, with benevolent words, and offering amazing technological gifts, he asks the simple question - what do they want in return?
As ambitious politicians attempt to use the situation to seize power, they instead plunge the world into chaos.
Karden and a group of quirky brilliant warm-humored friends uncover the true nature of the aliens, the weaknesses of their ancient galaxy-spanning civilization, and what they will do if their offer is refused. In the process, they become the unlikely leaders of a revolution.
