MBA&M: Tell us about your latest book?

JEFF: [email protected] novel is a mind-blowing, sci-fi espionage story, with ingredients of international intrigue, artificial intelligence, action, suspense, and romance. Set mostly in the Nevada desert, [email protected] includes cyber warfare between nation states, the fantastic virtual world of an alien computer, and the hunt for one of the world’s greatest spies.

From inside their home located outside the small town of Corona, New Mexico in 1947, a young boy and his parents, while watching a freak lightning storm, hear a loud crash, after young Henry Summers witnesses what he thinks is an alien spacecraft falling from the sky.

Many years later, Nick Reynolds is appointed as the head of a Cyber Command taskforce established to deal with the increasing cyber warfare threat from China. Soon afterwards a new, disturbing type of cyber attack emerges, just as Nick learns that an imminent massive Chinese cyber attack against the United States infrastructure might be imminent. When the evidence suggests that the threat is real and that the attack will kill millions of people, Nick discovers that his team will not have enough time or the technical resources to stop the incredibly advanced attack when it comes.

Nick soon learns of another top-secret project, however, one which might offer a way to stop the attack and spare the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

Dr. Henry Summers works with his scientist daughter, Kate, inside Area 51 at Groom Lake, Nevada. After years of trying to reverse-engineer an alien spacecraft,                                                                                                                                                                            the team has a breakthrough when they discover how to interface with an alien ship’s computer, by using a cybernetic helmet to enter a fantastic, virtual world.

MBA&M: What genre or genres do you enjoy writing in?

JEFF: I just really enjoy writing fiction, particularly with a Sci-Fi thriller edge. To date, I’ve written apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic novels (The Great Collapse and The Dark Age-The Survivors of the Pulse Series), and a book based on Revelation Chapter 11, the end of days, the Antichrist, and the return of Jesus Christ (The Last Prophet). I’ve also written a science-fiction/fantasy Christian allegory for children (The Way of Nacor: Tales of Eden Series), and I’ve been working on the [email protected] Trilogy, which includes [email protected], Frontiers, and New Beginnings, which is a science-fiction/thriller trilogy that chronicles humanity’s pioneering journeys into interstellar space.

MBA&M: When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?

JEFF: I guess I realized I wanted to be a writer while I was in college, though it was decades afterwards before I would first publish a novel. I took a creative writing course and really enjoyed it.

MBA&M: Do you write full-time or do you also have a “day job?” If so, what is it?

JEFF: I still have a day job working with information technology, though I hope to one day take my writing full-time. I really enjoy writing, so it’s a dream.

MBA&M: What do you enjoy most about writing?

JEFF: Writing for me is like reading a novel or watching a movie, but it’s one that I can help determine the outcome. I say “help” because it seems like stories often take a on a life of their own. That and a true sense of accomplishment!

MBA&M: Anything you don’t enjoy or struggle with when it comes to your writing?

JEFF: When I first started writing I had difficulty developing an outline long enough to encompass my novel. I started writing and would eventually be able to flesh out an outline for the remainder of the story. Eventually, I was able to start fleshing out outlines for the entire book. That’s when I believe my writing really started to improve.

MBA&M: What other passions or interests do you have besides writing?

JEFF: I enjoy reading, family, the Church, and the outdoors.

MBA&M:  Glass half-full or half-empty?

JEFF: Half-full, always. We have to always be mindful of how much we have to be thankful for and focus on that, rather than on what we don’t have. It’s good advice, I wish I could follow it myself.

MBA&M: What would you consider your dream vacation?

JEFF: Oh, that’s tough. I suppose a year in a beautiful, relaxing tropical climate with a cool breeze off of the ocean, writing my next novel!

MBA&M: Which of your characters would you say you are most like? Least like?

JEFF: I can definitely identify with a number of characters from my novels, especially some of the protagonists like John March from The Last Prophet and Conrad Simmons from The Great Collapse. I probably feel like I have the least in common with the antagonist from The Last Prophet, the Antichrist, Abe Addon.

MBA&M:   What can you tell us about your next book?

JEFF: In [email protected], alien technology helps save the day when the world is threatened with nuclear war. In Frontiers, humanity builds its first interplanetary spacecraft based off of that same technology. In New Beginnings, the Earth survives a near-catastrophe when a rogue planet barely misses the Earth, prompting humanity to establish it’s first interplanetary colony.

Now for some of his other novels:

 

 

 ——–

 THE LAST PROPHET (2011)

 

Would you believe it if someone told you that you were one of the last two prophets mentioned in the book of Revelation?

It is the End of Days. The power of the Antichrist and his grip on humanity grows stronger with each passing day, enabling him to deceive the world and entice humanity into joining him in his corruption, and in his eternal punishment. With the help of the False Prophet, the Beast persuades many to fall down and worship him, also forcing them to take his mark.

When someone tells John March that he has been chosen by God to become the last of the two prophets mentioned in the book of Revelation, he doesn’t believe it. After a visitation by an angel followed by a miraculous sign however, he becomes convinced that it is true and decides to embrace his calling, despite learning that doing so will lead to his untimely death. March begins his mission by proclaiming God’s message: that the End of Days is at hand, to beware the growing power and influence of the Beast, and to know that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is imminent.

Supernatural disasters, including a worldwide drought, rivers of blood, massive earthquakes, and a devastating asteroid, testify that the end of the world is at hand.
Join John March on his journey to becoming, The Last Prophet.

THE DARK AGE-SURVIVORS OF THE PULSE (2011)

 

Suppose you learned that an ancient prophecy about an artifact, said to be powerful enough to dramatically change the world, was true. Would you risk everything to find it?

It has been five-hundred years since the Pulse caused the Great Collapse, ending the Golden Age, and civilization on planet Earth. Humanity has waited ever since for a long-anticipated sign from God, which has finally appeared in the night sky. The time has come for Ferrell Young, the Warrior Clan, and the Church to risk everything in an effort to restore civilization, and bring hope to a world full of despair.

Alex Montgomery is an archaeologist who has spent many years looking for a mysterious book on behalf of the Holy Christian Church. The book is said to contain the location of the Great Oracle which, according to legend, can endow the one who finds it with great power and wealth. Of much greater importance to the Clan and the Church however, is the fact that it may also enable the world to emerge from five centuries of darkness and suffering.

When a powerful, intelligent, but sadistic barbarian leader named Kraken learns of the Oracle, he plans to destroy the Warrior Clan and the Church, take the Oracle for himself, and enslave the rest of humanity.

Join Ferrell and his companions as they set out on a desperate journey to find the Great Oracle, and rescue humanity from The Dark Age.

THE DARK AGE-DESCRIPTION

In the year 2025, the greatest civilizations to ever exist on Planet Earth were wiped out in a moment by the unlikely combination of a powerful electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and massive solar flare, which permanently renders advanced technology across the planet useless.

Now fast forward five-hundred years and you’ll find yourself in The Dark Age, which is set in a world where humanity survives by the sword, the bow, and the arrow, while secretly hoping that a legend about the Great Oracle is true and that civilization will one day return to the Earth. The Dark Age is a story about good versus evil, about self-discovery, perseverance, and self-sacrifice, all in an effort to save the world from a fate worse than death.

“As the world falls to pieces, evil will flourish and only the bold will dare stand in its way. “The Dark Age: Survivors of the Pulse” is set on a post apocalyptic Earth… “The Dark Age” is a riveting blend of science fiction and fantasy, recommended reading.”  Midwest Book Review
