About this title
Junkyard Dogs 1: The Scrapyard Incident. Ensign Tamara Carlisle, a brilliant, beautiful but decidedly quirky young officer on a remote assignment to obtain information needed to finish her advanced degree in Military History... Lieutenant Ryan Harris, a talented and experienced engineer who harbors doubts about his ability to command... Engineering Technician Angus Hawkins, a savvy veteran and former Chief Petty Officer busted down in rank for brawling... These three unsuspecting individuals, marooned after a devastating sneak attack on the United Terran Federation Naval Reclamation Center-- a huge, orbiting Junkyard located in a remote corner of Federation space-- are forced to confront their limitations and team up to fight back against unknown, heavily armed foes who threaten their continued survival... During their effort to survive, the trio discovers that their unknown foes have even bigger plans. It seems they would like nothing more than to start a revolution... Can the three Scrapyard survivors come together with an Islamic Ambassador on a mission of peace, a smuggling ring bent on nothing more than making a profit, and a small, underarmed orbital station security force to somehow thwart a terrorist attack that threatens to ignite a new interplanetary war?About the Author:
Born and raised in Minnesota, educated at Moorhead State (Moorhead, MN) and North Dakota State University. I developed a passion for science fiction in junior high and have been hooked ever since. I started writing science fiction sometime around 1986 or so and about a dozen of my short stories were published in pioneering online magazines such as "Athene" and "Intertext." I have been employed as a potato scientist at the University of Idaho since 1991. I currently serve on the editorial boards of two national trade journals and have written more than two hundred educational and informative articles for the popular press. I live with my wife and two cats (or is it the other way around?) in southeastern Idaho, where most of the potatoes are. An irresistible compulsion just a few years ago to get back into writing science fiction resulted in "The Scrapyard Incident." Maybe the theme of the book would make more sense if I admitted to having an inexplicable interest in junkyards too... Many thanks to Angie Wirth (email@example.com) for her breathtaking artwork. I am currently working on the second book of the "Junkyard Dogs" saga which will be entitled "The Veritian Derelict." I hope to have it available by this summer. We'll see if my muse behaves. If you have questions or comments about me, "The Scrapyard Incident" or diseases of potatoes feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
