Author Biography

When I was seven years old the images on our black and white television had uncontrollably scrolled and flickered once too many times. As a result, the set was upgraded for the latest color model. Although that's now forty-five years ago, I can still remember like it was yesterday. I was blown away by the vibrance of the first scene I witnessed on the new TV. Was it fate that an episode of "The Jetsons" was my first viewing? Overflowing with amazement at the color technology, I clearly remember also naively gaining the expectation that it was only a matter of time before the flying cars on display in that cartoon would become another technological reality. With my fairly high, but not as far as I'm concerned, impossible, expectations from that fateful day yet to be fulfilled, I have taken to resolve the matter with my own unqualified, but passionate, written thoughts on the subject! I must admit I feel very much a solo keyboard warrior in my battle to see the history of the universe and the laws of physics re-written, so, if you happen to feel the same, or would like to offer me some support while I'm on my chosen lonely path, please don't hesitate to make big or small talk. Yours Sincerely, Peter Doran

Tom Miller's Star-Born Universe -- Episode One: Necessity is a sci-fi adventure novella written by Peter Doran. Tom Miller, a CAD operator, lives a humdrum life on the outskirts of Los Angeles. In constant conversation with his inner self, Greyum, Tom accidentally discovers futuristic technology that enables him to travel vast distances with the minimal use of energy. He converts his black 1982 Pontiac Fire-Bird Trans-Am into a flying car capable of bypassing the atmosphere. But his discovery lands him in Guantanamo Bay after the FBI arrests him on suspicion of being an international terrorist. However, over the years, world leaders' reluctance to acknowledge the ills of global warming brings the planet to the brink of a devastating catastrophe. Tom must now work with NASA to help them develop technology that makes fossil fuels redundant.

Tom Miller's Star-Born Universe -- Episode One: Necessity is a wild rollercoaster of a ride that touches upon some surprisingly poignant topics related to the fabric of our universe. Through Tom, author Peter Doran tells the tale of a misunderstood introverted genius who finds himself trapped in a society that fails to utilize his gifts. The prose is utilitarian, making it accessible to readers across all age groups. Doran incorporates some theoretical scientific concepts in a way that they blend seamlessly into the narrative. This is Tom's story, and the rest of the characters are merely used as tools to move the plot forward. If you're looking for a short and fast-paced sci-fi adventure, grab a copy.
