8/11/14 Wheaton, Minnesota: Author Leif J. Erickson challenges time and governments in two books slated for release this week. The gifted author provides a new twist for two popular and favorite plots: time travel and biological experimentation gone awry.
Ghost Town: The Whiterock Incident Part One: The Journal follows the investigation of FBI agent Ethan Drew as he seeks to uncover the mystery of the missing inhabitants from a small town in rural South Dakota. What he finds is an ex-military researcher using the town’s inhabitants as literal guinea pigs in experiments that threaten not only the townspeople, but also all of humanity.
Time Vacation provides readers with a page-turning ride through some of history’s most notable events, thanks to two men who created the ultimate in adventure – a time vacation travel company. The results are often humorous, always intriguing, and often dangerous.
Author Erickson introduces his own unique writing style and knack for character development in his two newly released novels. His use of words, sentence structure, and plot development enhance his use of sensory words that captivate and throw his reading audience. “I love telling stories,” says Erickson. ‘Most importantly, I love telling stories that involve the senses and emotions; if I can do that over multiple age groups, I’ve done my job as a storyteller.”
Erickson relies on his upbringing in small-town Midwest America to bring his scenery, descriptions, people, and rural way of life onto the pages of his novels. Erickson’s tight and cohesive writing style, vivid sensory images and fully developed characters provide easy reads and page-turning leads for an audience that spans multiple age groups and interests.
