Born in the heart of West Virginia, Royce dreamed of becoming a writer throughout his younger years and was always an avid reader. Starting out with an old, and often temperamental typewriter, he wrote poems and stories that helped to develop his young imagination. While he was in Junior High School, a kind-hearted teacher took his first "manuscript" home for the summer and painstakingly read through pages and pages of violent, poorly written combat scenes.

Our world has made first contact with an alien species, but a simple cold virus was brought with them.

This simple chain of events is the herald of a new age that was prophesied by the Native Americans long ago in the "Seven Fires Prophecy." Chapters 1 through 5 have been posted here as a teaser to the rest of the novel that will be published later this year.
