Bio: JK Battaglia grew up playing outdoors from sun up to sun down. But he was introduced to Bilbo and Frodo at the age of 12 by a cousin during one summer. And life hasn't been the same since as he began to devour fantasy and science fiction novels. In his adult life, he's branched out into other books as well, but his mind is at home in fantasy and science fiction. He began writing A Hope of Life and A Slice Of Life while working as a Software Engineer. He cherishes all sorts of other things too - quite numerous to mention here but a few are movies, music, art, comics, treehouses, fishing, boating, robots, drones, animals, hiking, roller coasters, and learning about new technologies. When he's not writing, he's probably enjoying one of the above or just relishing in the outdoors. He has also written A Hope Of Life, 'Twas the Tragedy Before Christmas, and others. JK Battaglia lives in the greater Chicagoland area.

    A Hope Of Life

    August 19th, 2017

    I have overcome the odds of a pregnancy in the middle of the Rocky Mountains and given birth.

    I have struggled to remain hidden from the prying eyes of the global conglomerate called the Protectorate.

    I have resisted the robots, drones, droids, androids, and mechs that the Protectorate has arrayed against me.

    I have narrowly escaped the clutches of that non-discriminatory killer, La Guillotine.

    I have been betrayed by those who professed to be my loved ones.

    I have discovered the true secret behind the radical origin and birth of that most heinous individual, the Overlord of the World.

    I have stared into the face of evil as it straddled the Golden Throne and ruled the world with an iron hand.

    I have entrenched myself in a final line in the soil against the ultimate battle that will end all battles.

    I did not think I would live to tell about it, fraught with peril and beset by soul-piercing danger on every side.

    But I did…

    I am Ashton Deveraux Forte.

    My story could be your story.

    But you would never want it to be.

    Not after what I’ve been through.

    Learn from my mistakes and avoid them altogether.
