Life has handed Easton Thorn a mixed bag. He was born with a keen intellect, yet he hasn’t exactly made the most of it. He is treading water in his sometimes mind-numbing accounting job in the bowels of a large multinational corporation when he meets a friend and mentor, a man with a blueprint to the future that the corporation has ridiculed and ignored. Then fate steps in with a financial windfall, and suddenly, Easton Thorn is a billionaire. With the help of a beautiful young system engineer and a financial whiz, he has the chance to fulfill his own dreams as well as the dreams of his mentor. Easton and his team gather the best and brightest from every corner of the globe to break new ground in a myriad of technologies, filling in the pieces of a fantastic puzzle Easton has defined. If these three succeed, they will literally change the world. Money, technology, influence, and power attract the attention of governments, criminals, and even terrorists who try to block their path, wrestle control from them, or eliminate them completely.
Andrew O’Neill is an engineer who has designed and managed a variety of satellite and wireless communications systems for government and commercial customers for over twenty years. Always a fan of science fiction, he got the urge to write his own book just a few years ago. He has traveled extensively for work and with his family. He lives outside Washington, D.C. with his wife, two children and two dogs.
Andrew comes from a large family. He is the fifth of ten children. He grew up in New York and graduated from Stony Brook University on Long Island. He has enjoyed years of coaching his son’s baseball and basketball teams and is an avid fastpitch softball fan, thanks to his daughter. He enjoys running when he has the opportunity; which sometimes goes away for years at a time.
