This all started with a conversation after a surf, a breakfast burrito, and a few beers. Our lives were becoming filled with responsibilities to family, careers, and a thousand other little things that left us each on the couch every night saying “where did the day go?” We missed the time we once had to read epic novels, lay back and listen to entire albums, and explore our own ideas and talents. So one day, we thought let’s imagine, let’s make time, and let’s create something.
So we did. For the past two years we found the time. In between moves and having babies ... Taking our kids to school, day care, and practices... surfing, drinking, and eating... household chores and changing diapers... spreadsheets, power points, and business trips... we made time.
Just after a year and half into the project, we asked our friend JennaRose to edit our book. We were looking for someone who would be just as excited as us to work on this, and Jenna (being a complete and total sci-fi nerd, having read every young adult book ever written, and loving any movie with a strong female lead) was perfect for the job. Since we brought her on board, she has jumped in and embraced this project with the same amount of enthusiasm and energy as Brandon and I. This is also her first foray into book editing, something she has been interested in pursuing. Hopefully this project will open more opportunities for her!
We thank you for your support, and hope you enjoy reading our book as much as we enjoyed creating it!
Tommy & Brandon
