More About the Author
When I was five, we moved to Tennessee, the land where kids roam free. I used my freedom to smash a neighbor's hibachi, search for crawdads in the creek, and attempt to recreate Evel Knievel's greatest hits on my banana seat bike. It all paid off when I won the nine-year-old division at the 4-H bicycle rodeo.
Fast forward to my freakishly large high school years, and the football coaches beat up the band leader to insure my place on the front lines of the gridiron. That place lasted into college, where a classic injury forced me to rethink my decision not to play the tuba. Luckily, my extreme shyness was mistaken for paying attention in class, and I had good grades to fall back on.
In my so-called adulthood, it feels like I've lived about four lives with the only common theme being creative work. I've spent most of that time with either a camera in my hand or a Wacom tablet under my fingers, while I tried to convince Photoshop to do what I wanted. I probably thought about writing from the time I heard that ACL crunch in college, but I spent at least two decades mustering the courage to actually put words to paper.
From the exalted height of my mid-forties (I can hear you laughing), it feels like I was reading "See Spot run." on Monday morning, and Lord of the Rings on Thursday night. In between, it had to be the Chronicles of Narnia or Madeleine L'Engle. Needless to say, I like SF. Most of what is waiting to escape my head via my keyboard is some kind of speculative form of fiction. It seems to be the one place where bold, radical ideas can be explored without having to go into hiding from offending someone.
I currently live in Olympia, Washington with my fantastic wife, Sharon, five dogs (Hunter, Hope, Elke, Jay, and Luna - Queen of the Lunaverse), and two cats (Donner - loves everyone, Jenny - rarely leaves the bedroom closet). Whew! That was a mouthful. I'm a digital artist by trade, woodworker by hobby, gardener by spousal association, and dog trainer by hard necessity.

I came across "Renewal" in August and took a chance on the first story of the series based on several reviews. It was "Opinion's" reviews that got me kick-started. After "Renewal", I was hooked and needed to know what was going to happen next...so I downloaded every one of the series that was available at the time, which was 2 - 7. By the time I finished # 7, series 8 was out and I was able to continue forward with the pleasure of enjoying the next extension of the story. I waited patiently for 9 & 10 to be released. I didn't have to wait long.
I truly loved and enjoyed the way Mr. Perkins presented his story. To have Bill explain to Terry how it all began, and mix the past with the present, was a unique way of having the storyline flow smoothly. The reader never gets lost within the timeline of events and the numerous characters entwined within the plot(s).
I considered writing a review for each novella, however I didn't want to end up repeating myself. All I can say is; for those of you who are just now reading the reviews and trying to decide whether you want to spend ten dollars on this series, contemplate no longer. You WILL NOT be disappointed in this story. By the end of the first or second novella, you will not even give thought to the .99 cents you invested for each one. Do yourself a favor and purchase the entire series. Had I paid $20.Read more ›
I must admit that there are a lot of editing issues, but the story is fantastic. I finished the first nine within a week, and was so happy when I went to the Kindle Store on Saturday night and the tenth (and final) book was ready.
I love the characters, and I love the way the story(ies) play out. I hated to finish, however. I want MORE.
I hope that Mr. Perkins fills in the time between times with another book or books.
There is a very, very short list of book I like so much I will read once a year and this is one of them. In fact as I said in past reviews I had reserved "Lights Out" as my favorite apocalyptic read of all time but thought this one might have the ability to trump "Lights Out" but of course wouldn't know until the end. It didn't disappoint at all and "YES" I have a brand new all-time favorite.
This series was so good. Mr. Perkins is, in my opinion, a rising talent that will rival all the big named authors once he has been discovered by enough people. He is just down right out slick with his words, ideas and is tops when it comes to his creativity and attention to detail. The way he hammered these installments out proves to me he isn't short at all on coming up with creative ideas and most importantly can put them into writing in vivid detail. It would take me months to come up with a single installment and there is no way I could make everything fit together so well and paint the mental image his words do.Read more ›
