Four thousand years ago the world's first super human walked the earth. Possessing the strength of one hundred men, skin impervious to attack, and the ability to read minds, this immortal being used his power to conquer and enslave nations. Now plans are in motion that will transport this super human to the present, where he'll usher in a new age of tyranny unlike anything the world has ever seen.

Determined to stand against them, using powers they've only just begun to master, is a ragtag group of young heroes. For them this first test may be their greatest . . . and last.

Monsters and Critics

Long story short: I was working in the software industry and wrote many books in my spare time (and even had some of them published), then in 1999 the company for which I was working laid off a whole bunch of us, and I decided to give full-time writing a go.
