On a warm summer morning in 1962, G. R. Holton was born in a little town in Massachusetts. I am the second eldest in a family of eight children. I have five sisters and two brothers. I am happily married and living in eastern Tennessee.
Growing up was hard due to the areas we lived in, but the whole time as a child, I would engulf myself in comic books and anything to do with science fiction. I decided though that I wanted to be a police officer and joined the military. After a training accident and I had my first major breakdown which put me out of the military.
I was 23 years old when I was first diagnosed with having Bipolar Disorder. I was told that I could no longer work. I thought that life was pretty much over. But in 1999 I met my soul mate, Charlotte. She brought me to know Christ and life started looking up, though the frequent battles with bipolar. made life hard. I took an interest in computer games to pass the time, and then one day I made a friend, Marlene Milton, on one of those online games with chat. after a few weeks of talking, I met her husband, Derek Milton, a movie director.
He gave me a couple of his screenplays to read and I was hooked. I knew at that point I wanted to try writing. Derek was right there to help me. One night I had a dream of three teens on another planet and in a cave. This was it; I knew what had to be done. I sat down at the computer and over the course of three months, I had written my first book, Journey to the Edge. I couldn’t stop there, so I continued writing and Guardians Alliance was born. I reworked Journey to the Edge and have now released Soleri. My latest is Deep Screams, a Science Fiction/Horror Thriller.
I hope you enjoy reading my dreams as much as I have in dreaming them.
Oh boy, the cover is ready for us. A sneak peek- you guys.
THE STORY'S PLOT
In the year two-thousand-one hundred-forty- five, Earth had finally gotten past its differences and the Earth Coalition was formed. The Coalition has decided that a space station would be launched into deep space to find a new Earth. The team would be on a twenty year mission to find other planets outside of their solar system that could be inhabited.
After they had been in space for six years, all of the signals from the Omega Space Station had suddenly stopped after being engulfed by a strange red cloud formation. Not knowing what might had happened, the Coalition called for a new crew to intercept the space station and ascertain what had happened. They were to do whatever was necessary to bring the station back online.
The new crew found the Omega, but little did they know it was not the space station that was dead and they were not to be alone. It seems that the spirits of two of the original team members were still on the station. One benevolent spirit just trying to get off the ship. But the other, a quite evil spirit, was out to destroy them all.
Take a ride along with them as they try to bring the station back on line and stay alive in the process.
