Earth 2: Chapter 1

CHAPTER 1 – JOHN TOWERS e2 / Three Years Ago John Towers, a tall, strong, boy with dark brown hair, stared at the Neanderthal statue for a good 10 minutes ignoring Professor Jenkins’ elaborate explanation of e2’s first discovered extraterrestrial rocks, before finally raising his hand to grab Mr. Jenkins’ attention. “Yes, Mr. Towers?” asked Professor Jenkins, a kind, white-haired man in his late forties whose rimless glasses made him appear justifiably sophisticated. “Professor Jenkins, could you give us a little history on this guy?” “This guy, as you say Mr. Towers, is just about the most important finding in e2’s history,” Mr. Jenkins said walking toward the archaic Homosapien.

Earth 2: Preface

I started writing Earth 2 in 2003. It’s been a long journey and I couldn’t have finished it without love and support of my friends and family. Thank you, Meena, my beautiful wife for your patience and support allowing me to, at times, travel to get away to write in peace and quiet. My beautiful daughter, Ally who gave me creative direction and character names. My son Brady for ensuring I was sufficiently covered in spider-webs. Thank you to my dad for finishing his book first, motivating me to finish mine. A son could not ask for a more supportive, loving mother, thank you mom. I am who I am because of you. A special thank you to my sister and business partner, Kimberly “Id” Meyers, for her words of encouragement. I have a huge supportive cast of friends and family. Thank you Wen, Murray, Danny, Lerma and Heidi for.
