Revenge From Mars by Todd Embry


Today I’m featuring Revenge from Mars by Todd Embry, which sounds like a very interesting book btw.

 

Blurb:

In the future, Earth is controlled by one man, Supreme Leader Jeremiah Johnson. Fueled by a desire to control the world, Jeremiah Johnson infiltrated himself into the mega-churches and led a campaign of suppression and subversion that resulted in one Church of Enlightenment, with himself as leader. The political influence of the Church extended into the political arena where Jeremiah Johnson was also elected Supreme Leader of the World. With both the power of the church and the government in his hands, nothing stands between Jeremiah and world domination.

Henry Thomas’ parents were on a mission to uncover evidence that would undermine the doctrine that is the foundation of the Church of Enlightenment. Ten year old Henry watched as his parents were deemed heretics and violently murdered by a death squad of Church fanatics. Captured by fanatics himself, Henry is sent to a Church orphanage to be reprogrammed. After six years of captivity he manages to escape and begin a life on the run. He meets the love of his life, Annie Pearl, who shares his hatred of the oppression that has created a world of extreme wealth and extreme poverty. When Annie is murdered for her outspoken views, Henry’s life is set on a course of revenge and hatred. His mission to destroy Supreme Leader Johnson will take him all the way to the Martian deserts surrounding the new Mars colony. On Mars he hopes to find the proof his parents were seeking, the evidence that will topple an empire and exact revenge for the murder of those he loved.

About the Author

Todd was born a navy brat in Sasabo Japan in 1962. After living in many different places, his family finally settled down in the small town of Fort Pierce Florida, where his father taught physics at the local college. A bit of a wild and rebellious youth, Todd graduated high school, just barley. He followed in his father’s footsteps and  joined the navy.

After a knee injury ended his naval career early, Todd returned to Ft Pierce resuming his wild ways. In desperation his parents sent him to stay with his Grandmother in Scotts Corner Kentucky, hoping some of the local values, hard work, unconditional love of family among them, would rub off.

It did. Todd returned to his family in Ft Pierce, found a job with Bellsouth as a telephone operator and 15 years passed. During that time, Todd met the love of his life Linda at his 31st birthday party. After an intense romance, they were married one year later. However, Linda came as a package deal. She had a daughter named Corri whom Todd came to love as his own daughter. By mutual consent, Todd adopted Corri, making them one happy family at last.

Todd and Linda took out a second mortgage on their house and bought a flower shop, Linda’s lifelong dream. And a good thing they did, because after 15 years of service and 3,000,000 successfully answered calls with a 98% accuracy rating, Bellsouth downsized and closed the office Todd worked in. After recovering from back surgery to correct a ruptured disc, Todd tried his hand at the culinary arts and graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Miami in 2005. This culminated with a chef’s position at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, a 5 star resort.

During his time at culinary school, his English professor, a former college level creative writing teacher, gave Todd some advice, "You should try writing a book," he said. It was some time later that Todd began his first book Revenge from Mars.

Todd now works full time at the flower shop with his wife Linda and their daughter Corri, and he's finishing his second novel in his spare time.
