I am an author and a Bible teacher. The Bible is -- by far -- my favorite book. I read it regularly in the original languages (Greek and Hebrew) and several literal English translations, frequently in the German (usually the Elberfelder) and the Greek OT (the Septuagint), and occasionally in the Latin. The areas of study that fascinate me the most include Bible languages, eschatology (prophecy), apologetics, ancient history (particularly ancient catastrophism), and electric universe cosmology.
Currently my wife, Nita, and I reside in Harvey, ND, where I share in the ministry of the Word at Harvey Gospel Chapel. We have four children, all of whom are married, and ten grandchildren. We live in an older fixer-upper that we have largely remodeled.
My work experience is extremely varied --- my brother-in-law once teased me that I should write a book called "101 Occupations." I have been, among other things, an Airborne Ranger, a cook, a waiter, a meat cutter, a carpenter, a mason tender, a painter, a remodeler, a janitor, a food-service delivery driver, a truck driver, a farm hand, a factory worker in numerous settings, a sawmill hand, a lumber yard hand, a security guard, a car salesman, an insurance salesman, a daytrader, a Jiffy Lube tech, and a propane truck driver. My current job is delivering newspapers. I also designed and built a 3600' square foot, square-timber log home which we enjoyed for ten years.
I am a man of simple pleasures: backpacking, hiking, campfires, mountains, sunrises and sunsets, thunderstorms, starry skies, northern lights, coffee, dark chocolate, reading, friends, and good conversation. My favorite genres of music include the whisper of the wind in the pines, the call of Canadian geese, the cry of the loon, the bugle of a bull elk, hymns, worship music, and classical music. When I really get a strong itch for adventure, I like to climb mountains --- over the years I have managed to climb Mt. Rainier once and Granite Peak in Montana three times. Next up? Maybe a fourteener with my son Noah in Colorado.

He settled in Victoria, Australia, in 1982. A retired aerospace engineer who worked in structural design and research, Clayton has always had an interest in Science Fiction and where it places humankind within a universe we are only just starting to understand.
Clayton loves animals, including well behaved pets, and all the natural world, and is a member of Australian Geographic.

My dog, Jess and I hike in fabulous woods every day, rain or shine, sleet or snow. Having an adventurous nature, I learned to fly small cessnas in NJ, hang-glide in New Zealand, kayak in Pennsylvania, ski in New York, scuba dive with great white sharks in Australia, dig up dinosaur bones in Montana, sky dive in Indiana, and raft a class four river in Tasmania. I'm an avid gardener, amateur photographer, and dabbler in watercolors and graphic arts. Yet through my entire life, my first love has and always will be writing novels. I love to create interesting characters, set them loose, and scribe what happens.
What living in a Multiverse means...
You may think of yourself in plural, if you like. For oher versions of you live on the various universes.
Also, be aware universes collapse and blossom all the time. So, you could go through several versions of yourself in a single, trying day.
Have you ever arrived at work, with no memory of actually driving to your place of work? If the answer is YES, that means your universe and another similar universe collapsed into one, and sorry to say, you got the job.
Not to worry, while a bit disturbing, this is completely natural. Someday, long in the future, there will come a time when only one universe will remain. And that is what this story is about. There is a force of evil who wants to make the final universe a horrid place to live, while another group of Gods want it to be a lovely place. But neither the Evil creeps, nor the good Gods can succeed without help from the people on all the universes that came before it.
In your universe and those most similar to it, there are cute little water babies in a different dimension, They turn out to be brilliant, all because a very lazy, poorly behaving ‘god’ didn’t do his job properly. Not surprising since he’s actually working for Side Evil. Now with brilliant beings to assist, the good, but somewhat irritable God, Zousan, finally has a chance to win the last universe!
See all Liza's books at https://www.lizaoconnor.com/p/liza-oconnors-books.html
The God Zousan is determined to create a better multiverse than his father's. To ensure he fails, his despicable father, Cronus, has filled Zousan's crew with deadbeats and saboteurs.
Zousan's current task is to save the Oceanics, a blue water humanoid species that lives in a different dimension on Earth. The world of Oceania is threatened due to humans poisoning their oceans. Unexpectedly, the most recent hatchlings of Oceanics are exceptionally brilliant. Good thing, since they must figure out how to escape Earth and find a new planet or they will all die.
One young fellow named Drogan can cross dimensions and manipulate time events for better outcomes, but can he use his odd talents to save them all? While the bureaucratic Gods will try to assist, in Quantum all possibilities not only can, but do happen, so the future is never certain.

Meet Chris Stoesen:
While I still have a day job, I have been writing for quite a while. Mostly historical works but have been writing some fiction as of late. I am currently concentrating on a Military Science Fiction series - The New Glasgow War - on sale now.
I enjoy reading and just recently started to play with 3d Printing. Science Fiction is so much fun to read and write as things that were just fiction a few years ago are now becoming reality. Who knows, in a few years, some sci-fi books may have to be moved and treated as prophecy the way science is advancing.

Christian Kallias was born in Geneva, Switzerland. As his surname suggests, he has Greek roots and often dreams of life in Greece. The rest of the time, he plots space operas and fantasy stories at home in Switzerland.
With his sight always set towards the stars, his novels reflect many of his favorite things, like Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, and Stargate. He has fond memories of playing games like Wing Commander, a fact that should be apparent in his depictions of dogfight scenes.
Christian is drawn to imagining his stories in which his utopian aspirations for a better world where humanity shines and evolves towards a higher level of civilization often find their way into his novels. After trying to become a mangaka, a video game creator, an illustrator, and a cd cover artist, he realized along the way that the best medium to express himself was simply through the written word.
Christian began his career as a system engineer and understands technology very well even though he's more than happy to never have to fix a server again for the rest of his life! With that old life behind, and now living his dream, he's thoroughly enjoying creating storylines and characters that entice the reader to reflect and to ask themselves what if? What if we did things differently? What if we challenged our beliefs? But he doesn’t imply that he is right with his questioning. He just has these questions and likes to share them with his readers. In the end, Christian writes, first and foremost, to entertain. So for a little while, the reader can be transported to other worlds, and he hopes they enjoy the ride.
