About Justin Sloan
Justin Sloan is a full-time author, game writer, and screenwriter. With a focus on character motivation, he is passionate about point of view and diving deep into issues that resonate with the audience. It all started when his grandma had asked for a journal of his travels around the world, both with the Marines and via his graduate degree in international relations at Johns Hopkins.
Instead, Justin captured the sense of adventure and nostalgia in his books. Ultimately, he left government service behind and decided to make the leap to creative.
What followed was a career of writing video games, authoring and editing articles at Military.com, and publishing over 100 novels. He started on high-profile IP-based games with credits on such titles as Tales from the Borderlands, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Minecraft: Story Mode.
Justin has worked on Marvel and mobile games, and a TV hybrid AI show titled Rival Peak. His books are in such genres as military science fiction, epic fantasy, and thriller. On the screenwriting side, Justin has adapted novels, won contests, and optioned features and a television pilot to both indie and major studios.
Along with his time as a signals intelligence Marine, Justin has worked for the federal government, Federal Reserve Bank, taught martial arts, and can play three songs on the bagpipes. He studied creative writing at the Johns Hopkins MA program, and screenwriting at UCLA.

About the Author

Alice was told that her husband was dead, a month after he went up to space. Now she's formed a team of technical assassins dedicated to taking down New Origins, the corporation in charge of the station, if she doesn't get answers. Someone has to hold them accountable--even if it means going up against an army of genetically engineered super soldiers.
Stealth is an elite among elites. This Marine wanted to be on the front line of expansion into space, and now he is. Only the hacker organization known as The Looking Glass stands against them, trying to pull apart all of his team's progress, all they believe in. Neither will stop until they have justice.
"One of the things that Justin excels at is writing his characters so well that they shine clearly through the (deliberate) murky situation on this space station. I find I’m not rooting for one side or the other, and I don’t feel any need to because I’m rooting for the characters. I’m about three-quarters of the way through the first book and I still have no idea how it will end. Recommended."
-- Author Tim C. Taylor
