When David Jordan, an extraterrestrial human in appearance, agrees to help U.N. Secretary General Nicholas Straka resolve an escalating nuclear crisis, he also learns he must defuse a horrifying plot to exterminate humanity by a hostile race of beings who despise human culture. Somehow, he must thwart both crises before a worldwide intervention is launched by his superiors, destroying human innocence in the process. In Reason for Existence, David learns the origins of human conflict, the nature of secret societies, the true meaning of friendship, and the enduring qualities of love.
Reason for Existence is a science fiction thriller with metaphysical and philosophical themes. This is a novel that is both entertaining and educational and therefore makes for excellent discussion. A genre bender, Reason for Existence is for readers who like original works of fiction and who appreciate novels that extend beyond one category and challenge the imagination.

From the Author:

Reason for Existence is a genre bending novel that combines science fiction, philosophy, thriller, and romance into a very unique reading experience. A work of metaphysical science fiction, Reason for Existence is visionary and informative. The book is a natural for discussion in book clubs, reading groups, on social media, and in academic settings. This novel makes you think. I wrote the novel to be in contradistinction to typical genre fiction since I find genre fiction formulaic. Reason for Existence is innovative and encourages dialogue. In fact, that is the goal of all of my writing since feedback from readers is much more important than the story itself. The story is nothing more that an inducement for discussion, and readers and their opinions are infinitely more important than authors and their messages. I want to learn from you: what you liked, didn't like, what you would have done differently, if any passions were lit, what themes or ideas made you think or challenge preconceived notions, all of it, so please share your thoughts. And thank you for being readers.
