From the Author
My experience in writing Collider derived from being away from home and missing the love of my family. I wrote Collider while deployed to Iraq and it took about two years. Starting in the summer of 2008, I deployed to Iraq with the US Marine Corps as an ER physician. We spent a good amount of time running a trauma center in Taqqadum, a small town about an hour or so West of Baghdad.
But as an ER doc, I was also the head of a mobile Shock Trauma Platoon. For a
few months in the middle of our deployment, over the Christmas season of 2008
to be more precise, we moved north, near the Syrian boarder. We lived in tents
with generators run on jet fuel (JP8), and it was during quieter moments here that
I wrote the lion's share of the story.
What excites me most about Collider's book topic is that I'm always most intrigued when people combine things in a way not normally seen, or expected, whether that be in woodworking or automotive design. In this novel, I tried to exercise two areas of the mind, or two schools of thought, religious beliefs and hardcore science, to paint a portrait of reality not before seen as the setting or backdrop, and kept the love of family and strength of my family at the forefront.
