About the Author

Since his early years, J. Drew Brumbaugh has been pursuing two of his life’s passions, writing and martial arts. His published pieces include both fiction and non-fiction articles including short stories and two novels. A native Ohioan, Mr. Brumbaugh was born in Athens, Ohio. During his early childhood his family moved to northeast Ohio. As a young man, Mr. Brumbaugh spent time crewing on a Great Lakes iron ore boat, earning money to attend college. After graduation from Kent State University with a Bachelor of Science in chemistry, he served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army Chemical Corps. Following military service, he entered private industry and is now the Director of Quality for a local corporation. In his spare time Mr. Brumbaugh continues to write, concentrating on novels and is head instructor at the karate dojo that he, along with his wife and business partner, Carolyn Berg, own and operate. Currently Mr. Brumbaugh and Ms. Berg share their Mentor, Ohio home with an ever-changing flow of family, friends, students, goldfish and their dog, Blue.

More About the Author

I write suspense novels and currently have three novels available through Amazon, B&N, Apple as e-books or as paperbacks. Shepherds is a near-future science fiction story that involves murder and romance in the midst of the Pacific Ocean. War Party tells the story of three characters all chasing the sleeper cell bent on killing as many people as possible and getting away with it. I also have a collection of supernatural shorts titled Ten More and co-authored a children's book, Girls Gone Great. Foxworth Terminus is my latest novel and is another science fiction thriller. Here's wishing you good things to read no matter what you like to read.

I really enjoyed this book. The setting is the near future on the high seas. It's part sci-fi, part action-adventure, & part mystery. The story is immediately engaging and the suspense builds with each chapter. The characters are really cool and the visual images created by the author give the story a fantasy-like feel, even though it is a suspenseful thriller. It also has some adult themes mixed in, so probably not one you want to pass on to your pre-teen kids. I really liked the fact that the storyline is relevant and totally believable. Great read, two thumbs up!

This book is dripping with original characters, new plotlines and plausible future technology which made it a great read. SHEPHERDS has several elements you expect to find in a good novel, including vivid / likeable characters who are locked in an adventurous plot that takes place in an original setting with cool, new technology. I'd go as far as to call SHEPHERDS fantastic for two reasons. First, it takes place out on, and below, the open ocean, which gives it a fresh and brisk feeling throughout. Second, the author incorporates radical new technology, both genetic and nautical, that has just enough science to make it plausible but never gets bogged down. The deep-sea cowgirls in this tale are sort of sexy. I've read a lot of nautical literature, and just want to say that this is not your grandfather's sea story. This is a cutting edge, fast-paced, science-based yet fun and adventurous tale set in a future where corporations and pirates and tuna herd shepherds fight for a living on, and below, the waves.

As soon as I read about the human's webbed hands and feet, I was hooked. Writing was good and the story flowed. Dolphins and the ocean were characters in their own right. Maybe there will be a sequel?
