Welcome to the official website for David A. Kersten's books.
1966 was a bad year for retired Army officer Jack Taggart. Still reeling from the tragic loss of his wife and daughter, a visit to his doctor reveals the worst possible news: cancer. Going in for his first surgery, he is uncertain if he can, or even should, face the challenges ahead.
When he wakes up to find over three hundred years have passed, an entirely new set of challenges lay before him. Discovering where he is, how he got here, and why he is here is just the beginning of a life he thought was all but over. Now he has to fight for the very survival of the human species, a fight that will revolve around "The Freezer."
There’s a thief in New Hope. A head is missing, but not just any head, this one could lead to an even greater discovery than the Freezer. But before Jack Taggart can solve the mystery, another dastardly plot unfolds, throwing his community into chaos.
With the very fate of humankind on the line, why would anyone want to prevent Jack and the other Reborn from being a part of the solution? The answer may lie with the other community leaders – men who have lived several lifetimes in effort to keep the spark of humanity alive despite their sterility. Have so many years of experience given them the perspective required to save humankind or has it entrenched them in a path destined for destruction?
While Jack searches for the answers, his friends struggle to keep their own worlds from falling apart in this epic continuation of The Genesis Endeavor.
Dillon Walker is on the verge of proving his theory and successfully altering the past. The stage is set, all the elements are in place, and he is more than ready to begin reaping the rewards of years of hard work. All that remains is to decide what message he will send to the past. Send the wrong thing back and the consequences could be catastrophic. He believes he has the right answers, but his colleagues are not so sure. The best way to prove it? Press the button and find out.
Join a new cast of characters as they explore the complexities surrounding time in this intriguing new short story by David A. Kersten.
I was born in Minnesota but spent most of my life in Montana and chose to stay to raise my three children here. Aside from writing, I enjoy creating things, whether it involves programming code, working with wood, building and renovating, or using electronics and computers. When I'm not writing or at my day job, I can be found at the bowling alley, out with friends enjoying a beer, at home in the shop, hanging out with my kids, or sitting at a computer playing a video game. As an avid reader since the age of eleven, I have always wanted to try my hand at writing, "The Freezer" is my first novel. I enjoy many different fiction genres, but my favorite has always been Post-Apocalyptic stories, so I chose to write my first book in this setting.
By day I am an IT manager for my family business. My skills include web design, network engineering, server adminsitration, help desk, client PC maintenance, desktop publishing, advertising design, and general building maintenance. On my off time, I write, which can sometimes have longer hours. I spent many years writing technical manuals and standard operating procedures. I believe my technical experience and attention to detail plays well in writing science fiction. I am currently finishing my latest novel, "Immortal" which should be available the first week of December.
