At the heart of this evil, the twisted scientist, Zolokt, creates killer combinations of animals, plants, and insects to inflict his acts of revenge.

About Andy Skrzynski

Born in 1954 in Jackson Michigan. Spent six years at the S. Joseph's Orphanage for Boys from age 6 to 12. Graduated from Western High School in Parma, Mich. in 1972. Graduated with a bachelor's in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University in Dec. 1976. Married Bonnie in 1987, bringing two wonderful daughters with her. Worked at IBM in Austin, Texas for 30 years and retired at age 53. I started writing my first novel, The New World: A Step Backward, in June of 2014. I've attended four to five Read & Critique sessions monthly and have been blessed with the help and support of 64 Beta Readers.

While my writing career got off to a late start in my life's plan at age 59, it has swooshed toward the clouds like an overpowered jet. Over the last couple of years, I've spent most of my waking hours writing, attending Read & Critiques, reading reviews of Beta Readers, and oodles of rewriting and editing.
