Local Author To Have Book Debut on Saturday
Stephen (Steve) Clark Reese, author of the recently released book Graviton is having a book debut on Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Heritage Hall located at 1009 W Kaufman St, Paris, TX 75460.
Steve began writing Graviton several years ago when he told his wife Cindy that he thought he could write a more realistic science fiction book than the ones he had been reading. He said he felt like the basics should make some sort of sense to the readers and the science should seem somewhat reasonable. So after six months of pondering his story, Steve began writing the now published Graviton. Some of the story lines came from dreams that he had at different times and even a dream from his childhood of flying, just not in an airplane.
In the story, Jack Redman, rancher, businessman and part-time inventor stumbles on an amazing invention that allows him to manipulate the forces of gravity. Jack soon realizes that his invention could have some serious consequences if it fell into the wrong hands and decides to develop the technology in secret. Unfortunately Jack’s teenage son Robert discovers his father’s research and does some experimenting of his own.
After Robert injures himself in an experimental craft, Jack decides to keep his son close by putting him under the wing of one of his top scientist, Dan Sarnoski. Robert stays busy under Dan’s supervision, yet Robert still manages to find himself in situations that could potentially expose Jack’s discovery.
Graviton explores the awesome power that lies in the discovery of new technologies as well as possible hazards that could be involved with attempting to control the forces of nature.
Steve was born in Santa Barbara, California and he and his family returned home to Texas in 1968 when he was 9 years old.
