About Drew Avera
He was born and raised in rural Mississippi and grew up with a deep affection for comic books and science fiction movies and television shows. At one point he boasted a comic book collection with more than 1,000 issues. His love for comics inspired him to pursue a career as a comic book artist, but an injury to his hand ended that dream permanently.
Still, he was inspired to create in one medium or the other. He picked up a guitar at fifteen years old and began writing songs almost immediately. That "obsession" as his parents called it put him on the path to rock stardom...in his bedroom.
It was when he turned sixteen and bought the novel "What Savage Beast" by Peter David (The Incredible Hulk) that he caught the bug to be a writer. Unfortunately, it would not come to fruition until fourteen years later.
Drew enlisted in the US Navy as an Aviation Electricians Mate at seventeen years old. He served twenty years and deployed on four combat deployments to the Persian Gulf. During those deployments he would spend his free time reading books. He loved reading books in a series and that inspired his foray into becoming a fiction author.
In November 2012, at the age of thirty, Drew began his journey as an author by participating in national Novel Writing Month (NANoWriMo). He published his first book in March of 2013 and the rest, as they say, is history. With more than twenty books published in the space opera, military science fiction, cyberpunk, and dystopian genres, he has built a backlog with something for everyone who enjoys science fiction adventures.
With his career in the Navy at an end, and on the cusp of a new career, Dew is focusing his efforts on building upon what he learned in seven years of publishing. He has a new space opera series launching in Summer 2020 as a celebration of his retirement from service. But that's not all! He will write and publish a crime thriller series later in the year with his pen name Dan Blake.
The best is yet to come!

But a lack of trust from his opposition, and riots in the streets may just bring his world crashing down.
As revelations of blatant corruption draws unwanted attention to the American Union, Fulton executes the final steps in a plan designed to bring the rest of North America to its knees in subjugation to his will. But even the best laid plans have their faults, as once again America is brought to the brink of war.
