I'm a 1965 high school graduate who spent a career in quality management with several top manufacturing companies. I'm a California native, served a tour in Viet Nam with the Marines and survived a bout with cancer. We lived, for a time, in Connecticut (too cold) and now reside with my wife in So. Cal., about an hour north of San Diego. I'm retired now but still enjoy reading (and occasionally writing) fantasy, sci-fi, horror and mystery stories and have a large library of such to prove it.I have also self published a sci-fi/fantasy novel (ORB) available at Amazon and Barns and Noble.
The ground shuttered. The earth split. And foul gases, detritus, and splintered rock erupted into the jungle like spew from a volcano. And the worm inched closer to the world above, the open air and the scorching humidity of the Brazilian rainforest.
