In Night Creeps, Sheriff Justin Bowles is the unwelcome outsider in a small mountain town. His deputies don’t respect him until the suspicious death of a hunter stirs fears. Three outlaw aliens escape their world and come to Parmissing Valley to build a mutant army and the sheriff needs all the help he can get to stop them.
When Justin saves the life of one of his deputies from a mutant, a bond develops between them that leads to an explosive finale where everything is on the line. The clock is ticking as the military has issued a deadline through one deputy to “handle” the situation or the quarantine becomes a purge. To make matters worse, a new breed of mutant is created from one of the victims. The mayor’s wife, mutated by the alien leader, has the ability to maintain her human features or transform into a hybrid alien. With her new found powers, she has her own agenda which doesn’t include the aliens.
Michael has attended over one hundred conventions across the country as a guest panelist and twice at the Library of Congress as their guest speaker. After his successful Fractured Time Trilogy and Space Frontiers Series, he delved into the horror genre briefly with his Night Creeps Series (Night Creeps 1 and 2) before returning to his sci-fi roots with the Pain Series, beginning with Princess Pain. Queen of Pain, book two of the series is due out in early summer from AZ Publishing. While a third book in the series is likely, Reign of Pain, Michael currently is working on a new series with the opening novel titled Space Truckers. This story is actually adapted in reverse from a recent script he wrote that has garnered much attention from motion picture producers. Additional information can be found on his website at www.fracturedtime.com.
In addition to novels, Michael has adapted or written seven scripts which he is actively marketing. A life-long resident of the Philadelphia area, he served twenty-two years in the Air Force/Air National Guard as a weapons crew chief and over twenty eight years as an applications/field engineer and a nuclear controls technician in a local power plant, both careers feeding heavily into his creativity. “In many ways, working in a nuclear plant is like being on a spaceship,” he explains.
