About the Book

A worldwide pandemic has devastated human civilization and forced humankind to withdraw into the safety of deteriorating cities. The Company was then established, an organization dedicated to preserve government order and concoct a vaccine. Walls and towers have been erected to protect the citizens against the dangers that lurk among the wilds. The greatest threat, however, may reside within the walls themselves and among the inhabitants. From the Machine will follow ten different characters and their families as they deal with the hardships of this new world order. They all seek the truth-beauty amidst the darkness.

About the Author

I hold an immense passion for the art of storytelling, mostly through the medium of film and, of course, novels. What I believe to be the most important aspect is not the story itself but the people that occupy them. The characters create the connection that draws a reader in and establishes investment. It is, after all, that human connection that has led to the world’s greatest accomplishments. I was born in the small town of Granite Falls, Minnesota, and my life was relatively uninteresting. I never participated in any major contribution to the lives of those around me. I was recently diagnosed with clinical depression, which turned my life upside down. One would think such an event might be the worst experience of my life, and it was. However, it was also the most important moment of my life. Without it, I would not have met the people who inspired me to finish this story and pursue my dreams of authorship. I pour my heart and soul into these stories, and if my works can inspire others, not only those suffering with similar illnesses, but those dealing with any hardship, then I believe I have fulfilled my purpose as a storyteller. Hopefully, this story can touch your life as it has mine.
