An Interview with author Nathaniel Danes
Young: Welcome to my weekly blog post. I'm delighted to have Nathaniel Danes join me on my blog post today.
According to Mr. Danes' wife, he is a self-diagnosed sci-fi junkie and has an over active imagination.
N.D.: I'm nearly blind. I write to create universes where there are no limitations. I live with my wife and daughter in the Washington, DC area.
Young: You have a new book coming out soon. Tell us about your new book.
N.D.: The book is titled The Last Hero. This is the first of a trilogy.
Young: Can you give us a synopsis?
N.D.: Of course;
Contact with a race of pacifists convinces mankind to lay down its weapons and keep the peace. The last Medal of Honor recipient, Trent Maxwell, trades glory for the comforts of a family after the U.S. Army disbands. All that ends when an alien menace attacks the New Earth colony, which forces a crash mobilization. Trent finds himself reactivated and traveling through space to distant worlds, in order to stop this new enemy. During the century long journey of death, love, and loss, he also deals with the law of relativity that wreaks havoc with his daughter.
Young: Would you like to read us an excerpt from your book?
Trent knelt down where Anna could throw her arms around his neck. She pulled against him tight and started crying again. Tears rolled down his face as he whispered, “I love you more than you can understand. I’m sorry.”
Her cries downed out his soft words.
After a minute, Trent summoned all of his strength to break free of her hold. Standing, he shared a look with Madison. She wrapped him in a loving, warm hug.
This time she did the whispering, “Remember what I told you. Make them pay.”
He pulled away, nodding as he placed his hand on Anna’s sobbing head. “I’ll see you both again someday. I promise.” The words bound him to a promise he wasn’t sure he could keep.
Young: When is the release date of The Last Hero?
N.D.: The book is schedule for release on Oct. 14 2014.
Young: Nathaniel, thank you for dropping by for a chat. I wish you the very best on The Last Hero.
