He went on vacation and returned home to find he had sold more than 1,000 copies and debuted on five of Amazon’s top 100 lists. The author is now at work on the second book in the series, “The Secret Army.” The sci-fi adventure follows teen slacker Jack Finnegan, whose average life is interrupted by an alien invasion. The secret to defeating the attacking force is an ancient spacecraft that can be flown only by Earthmen. For more information on the author, visit matthewkadish.com.
