About the Book

A young man wakes up and discovers he is the new guy in an army unit on

an alien world. Infinite Darkness, my third tale in the Final Duty universe, examines one day in the life of Denton Alexander, caught in combat on an alien world. I quizzed my youngest son, an Army veteran, for procedural details while writing it. Infinite Darkness uses a loop literary technique that I enjoy and have used in other short stories.

About the Author

Hello and thank you for looking at my stories on Noisetrade. I’m a bestselling author of action-adventure and speculative fiction novels. I place selected short stories on Noisetrade to reach readers who might not find me on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Through Many Fires, the first book in my post-apocalyptic Strengthen What Remains series came out in paperback, Kindle and on Audible in August 2013. Within two weeks the novel appeared on the Kindle Science Fiction Post-Apocalyptic list, reaching #10, and reached #1 on the list on December 2, 2014. The second book in the series, A Time to Endure, reached the #1 position on the Amazon Kindle war fiction genre list just over a month after release and then again in January of 2016. At the same time Braving the Storms reached the #8 spot.

I grew up in the mountains of Colorado and earned an Associate in Arts degree from Mesa State College in Grand Junction. When money for college ran low I enlisted in the United States Navy as a Cryptologic Technician. I thought I would do four years and then use my veteran's benefits to go back to college.

My first assignment was with a U.S. Navy unit at the Royal Air Force base in Edzell, Scotland. While on leave in Israel I met Lorraine from Plymouth, Devon, England and married her the next year. Together we spent the remainder of my twenty year naval career traveling across the United States from Virginia to Hawaii and on to Guam, Japan and beyond.

Even before I retired from the U.S. Navy I wrote short stories. In July of 2012 my debut novel, Titan Encounter, a science fiction space adventure, came out on Kindle and later in paperback. My second book, Final Duty - The Speculative Fiction Anthology, was released in January of 2013.

Today, Lorraine and I live on a small farm in Western Washington State and you can easily find and follow me online.
