my new action adventure series, Miles Stevens is a time traveling CIA agent who
works for the Department of Historic Intervention (DHI) in the year 2050.The mission of the DHI is to alter tragic
events that have occurred in recent history, with recent history defined as 2020
to 2050. This time period was
conveniently selected to give me the ability to conceive outrageous, yet
plausible, disasters for Miles to confront.
Sand, Miles and his partner, Terri King, are sent back to alter events
that have led to a devastating nuclear war in the Middle East in 2027.In Cyber
One, Miles and a new DHI team are sent to uncover those responsible for
levying a paralyzing cyber-attack on U.S. financial systems and electrical
grids in 2032.
farfetched?Well, maybe not.Those far more knowledgeable than I am on the
subject of time travel suggest it is indeed possible, and it’s the possibility, not the probability, that makes time travel intriguing.Ever since H.G. Wells wrote his famous 1895
novel, The Time Machine, time travel has been the subject of many
authors and the fascination of countless readers.In his novel, 11/22/63, Stephen King
sends Jake Epping back in time through a “rabbit hole” that Jake discovers at
the rear of a Maine diner.Jake’s
mission is to intervene in the assassination of JFK.
of the quandaries of time travel that makes it so captivating is something
called the ‘grandfather paradox.’ This
paradox asks if you traveled back in time and kept your grandparents from
meeting, would you have been born? More
broadly asked, if you altered any prior event impacting your existence, would
you continue to exist?I handle this
paradox by declaring that if my protagonists happen to alter events impacting
their existence, it would lead to ‘devastating consequences.’ And what would constitute devastating
consequences?You’ll need to read my
novels to find out.
