People--friends, mostly--have asked me, upon hearing that I have a book out, why I decided to write a novel.

I wrote SYNC for a few reasons.  Some are pretty stereotypical: I wanted to see if I could.  I wanted to put something out into the world, make a mark, leave a legacy.  I wanted something to be proud of.  All of that, blah blah blah.

But also, and probably more: I wanted to create a story that I would enjoy.  Bored of looking for a specific set of criteria in the almost endless selection of novels already out there, I thought, hey well let's just ourselves make what we want, shall we?  

I wanted a story with good guys and bad guys.  Adventure.  Danger.  True love.  Mad scientists.  Benevolent geniuses.  Unlikely heroes, unlikely victims, a little bit of theoretical quantum physics and a little brown dog.  Something that I would pick up in an airport bookstore, read on the plane, and think about while waiting for my suitcase to appear at baggage claim.  Specifically, something about which I would think, "well, that was a fun story, I really enjoyed that."

So, uni(?)verse, here it is: a story.  I hope you enjoy it.
