What an awesome book...even though you know the story, the author brings it alive. I felt I was right there with them living an everyday life.

My Thoughts:

I wrote my first novel, Refuge: The Genesis Chronicles, in 2003. This and the second novel, Adam's Chronicles (2007) formed the basis for the classic Perished: The World That Was (2010).

The Rise of Shem (2012)is the sequel to Perished and the second book in the series The World That Was. I am currently working on a third book on Abraham.

On November 22, 2014 I published Dead Eye Will, the story of...more
