Savage new specie, created by the cosmos and connected to parallel worlds, arrives on the scene: "MarVuHs"

Jeff Clarkston is an unlikely hero who sets out to become a high school teacher/psychologist. Despite career goals, he finds that his destiny is not in his own hands, but is controlled by entities more powerful than he. Since his teen years, he has subconsciously carried around a secret that has changed his life. At fourteen, he was one of many abducted victims, who were tortured and almost murdered by a bloodthirsty creature from another universe. This diabolical murderer's name was "Deidrymur." He is a powerful outer space alien who hates younglings of all worlds. In kidnapping Jeff, he unknowingly awakened the Cosmos Rulers, who in turn selected him as the one who would end this reign of serial kidnappings and murders-returning peace and order to the universe.

James Patterson has a masters of Science Degree in Education. He has been a highly motivated teacher-dedicated to the well-being of all his students for over 33 years. HIs fascination with outer space goes back to his childhood, when he dreamed of adventures in the great beyond. Mr. Patterson lives in Temecula, California with his wife.
