Log Line  
The offbeat staff of a small High Sierras university find themselves in the world of the super unknown as their fields of expertise draw them into bizarre occurrences that threaten mankind.  
 
Synopsis  

A small town sheriff enlists the aid of a local college faculty to find his missing niece, unaware that she may be on the run from an assassin with god-like powers.

Three unexpected deaths at her place of work, a conspiracy magazine, do not cover up the controversy in the next issue: Everyone who reads an article in it, dies.

The college faculty try to deconstruct the article, to their peril, until divine intervention arrives to warn them of an interstellar threat.

The FBI and US Army intervene too late to add anything useful, or protect themselves, against an enemy determined to rid the earth of its most destructive parasite, mankind, and claim the planet for their own.

As the alien species tightens a dragnet, it’s up to the faculty to unravel the clues left by another mysterious species to turn an intergalactic massacre on its head.

 
 
 
About the Author  

Tom was conceived in a trailer park in Dayton, Ohio, later to emerge in his mother’s hometown of Louisville, KY, April 8, 1954, on Buddha’s birthday. The first child of an Air Force pilot, Tom saw postings in the northeast from New York to Michigan, and caught his father’s film bug. When he was 15, Tom would take his 11- year-old sister to a local art cinema to experience films by Fellini, Wertmuller, Costa-Gavras and Bertolucci.

He later wrote his first movie review for his high school paper in Dayton, where he also wrote his first play, happily seen by no one. But the acting bug bit deeper when Tom was cast as Tevya in his high school musical, Fiddler on the Roof.

At the University of Louisville he studied journalism and theatre, where he starred as the ill-fated (and semi-nude) bathtub revolutionary in Marat/Sade. Rather than going to class, Tom made a career of his college paper, when, as arts editor in the spring of 1976, he spent two days with the cast of Saturday Night Live. He later became editor-in-chief, and incurred the wrath of the university when he published an ill-fated (and semi-nude) April Fools issue in 1979. The legal fallout forced him into his first existential crisis.

After briefly serving as editor of a Louisville tabloid, The City Paper, Tom returned to U of L to earn a second B.A. in physics and mathematics by 1990, financed by driving a taxi, selling plumbing at Sears and teaching calculus at U of L’s engineering school. He used the extra income to take flight instruction.

In 1992 he wrote his first novel, Trajectories (a sort of Cold Mountain meets Flight of the Phoenix in outer space) and a memoir, City of Thieves. He wrote his first screenplay, Rocky and Bullwinkle Lost in Time, or, Looking for Mr. Nogoodnick, while at the Census Bureau in 2000.
