Epoch Published!

July 25, 2019

Scott's newest novel, Epoch, was just published!

What if you woke up one morning lying on the floor, head pounding, and realized you had no idea what you were doing there? Even worse, what if you discovered you had no idea who you were or what your name was, and there was no way to find out because everyone else has lost all their memories as well? To top it off, what if all electronics suddenly stopped functioning at the same time?

This is precisely the situation one young man finds himself in. He's forced to try to rediscover his identity while struggling to find a path between what's right and what's necessary for survival. Sometimes the what's right and what's wrong aren't so easily discernible.

Forced to cope with a wasteland of useless, dead technology in a world that had grown to rely so heavily on machines, the people of Jerome must learn to rebuild society without the modern conveniences they depended upon so strongly. They suffer power struggles, death and disease, and are even forced to face the birth of a serial killer, all while fighting to reinvent themselves. Epoch is an epic of love, death, friendship, and inner struggles. It's a story uniting post-apocalyptic horror with philosophy and sociology.

This epic is available for Kindle and paperback on Amazon.

Coming Soon...Epoch!

July 16, 2019

Scott's next novel is coming soon. Epoch was actually the first novel Scott wrote, but it's a much longer, more complex story, so it took a bit more time to polish. It's a very different kind of story, more along the lines of speculative fiction. Epoch is a post-apocalyptic horror with a heavy focus on philosophy (in particular the topic of identity), ethics, morality, and sociology.

It's a "what if" story in which a mysterious catastrophic event occurs which disables all electronics and wipes all the memories of all people. Now everyone is forced to rediscover themselves and to learn how to survive in a harsh new world with no law and order.

More details will come soon. Keep an eye out for the release announcement in the next couple of weeks!

A Fatal Exception Published!

July 1, 2019

Scott's first novel, A Fatal Exception, has been published!

A Fatal Exception is a hardboiled detective story centered around a quirky robot who may be self-aware and nearly human, or perhaps he's just the result of unusual programming and upbringing. Perhaps there's no difference between the two. All that's clear is that Seven Sinclair is a strange bird and a hard case, and when an investigation into a simple hack gets him framed for murder he has to try to solve the case and clear his name.

Sergeant Rizzo of the Chicago PD, one of the few uncorrupted cops left in a dirty town, was once the bane of every mobster in the metropolis, but he's getting old, and since he always had an aversion to technology, he has trouble keeping up with the younger detectives. When he finally sees the chance to prove once and for all the he was right about those wretched robots all along, he's ready to stop at nothing to catch the tin can.

The novel is available for Kindle and paperback on Amazon.

New Website Launched

June 30, 2019

Scott's new website has been launched! He designed and built the site himself from scratch using HTML, CSS, and a tiny bit of PHP. For those interested in the technical details, it's using Twitter Bootstrap as the CSS framework and Twig templates in the backend. To make the site as fast-loading as possible, there's a PHP script which renders the Twig templates and saves them as plain .html files. All CSS and JavaScript files are merged together and minified so that they load quicker.
