Author/Artist Review

Author: Shayde Michaels
Located in: Chicago, IL
Submitted: December 18, 2014

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Shayde Michaels lives in Chicago with his wife, Kay--who is a pediarician, and their fur-kids Flynn (the dog) and Princess Nikki (the cat). Their son, James, is a decorated combat infantryman with the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell. Shayde is also a former Army infantryman and served in the First Gulf War. Since his military days his business career in the consumer products industry has allowed him to travel throughout North America. During one of those trips, listening to a radio new program, he developed the kernal of inspiration for the story that would become The Omega Event. While he'd written extensively as a student and since for trade and professional publications, this is his first major work of fiction. Shayde labels himself as a 'compassionate conservative' and has staunch views on individual liberty, freedom, supporting our military, and a firm belief that people really can take of themselves and will do it a lot better if excessive government will just get out of the way and let people live their lives. A sequel to The Omega Event is in the works--in the interim, Shayde hopes you enjoy the intrigue and suspense of The Omega Event and sincerely appreciates your support.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I'd toyed with the idea of writing a novel for over twenty years. I had an idea, I became absorbed in the process, and The Omega Event was born. I wanted a book my mother could read (no graphic content or profanity): she told me I "did good."

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  A reaffirmation of the role of integrity--and that, at least in my book, some folks do have honor and put the good of the country ahead of their own personal gain. The central characters are God-fearing, honest people who have to deal with others who are not: just like real life.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  The amount of work that the process requires, while balancing my career to pay the bills, reinforced to me that perseverance does pay off---but it can be painful and require great sacrifice.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I enjoy the books of Flynn, Clancy, W.E.B. Griffin.... people who write good stories that make you want to turn the pages. My favorite author from a style and complexity standpoint is James Clavell.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Please give The Omega Event a try-- it is a fun ride and while the different parts will probably never happen all at the same time, as portrayed in the book, each one is of itself plausible and probable.
