Michael Misiolek about this book: RUNNER is the second book of a new three volume hard-core science fiction drama series called: CHILDREN OF THE SUN. It's based on an original screenplay of the same name; which won top honors from The Screen Arts Foundation in 2002. It's the intimate story of a young Marine, suffering from PTSD and depression over the death of his beloved wife, who is recruited for a clandestine mission he knows will not be survivable. RUNNER is in fact the CHILDREN OF THE SUN screenplay reinterpreted. However while I was in the process of converting it into an eBook it became obvious to me there was a lot more going on here on many different levels that needed to be fleshed out - hence the creation of the series. It's told in first person, from a soldier's point of view, against the backdrop of a genetic war. I'm writing all three books at the same time. Although they are all part of the same story each book can stand on its own. RUNNER was put out first because it was the closest to being finished and as a test bed to determine if the series would be commercially viable. I spent most of my writing career writing for myself and now I'm writing for a market - which is a totally different thing. We'll see how it goes.
