Timothy N. Stelly is a poet, novelist and screenwriter from northern California whose 2008 novel, HUMAN TRIAL is the first part of a sci-fi trilogy that tells the story of an alien attack that decimates nearly all human, animal and plant life on earth. Subsequently, a small group of every day Americans who are forced to cooperate after an alien attack that elevates the earth’s temperature to lethal levels and decimates the population and food supply. The central characters, Daron and Regina Turner, hold together a ragtag group of survivors, while trying to raise a child born from unusual circumstances.
In 2009 the work was nominated as a SORMag (Shades Of Romance Magazine) Book of the Year.
The sequel, HUMAN TRIAL II: ADAM’S WAR, was released in 2010 and raised the question, “What is the bigger threat to man, a foreign invader or man himself? It deals with tribalism and the flaws of the individual—such as greed, racism and the sometimes insatiable thirst for power. At the same time it is a story of hope, love and the American spirit as families, cities and the country attempts to rebuild, all the while struggling to hold on psychologically as they worry about threats real and imagined.
The final chapter in this American saga, HUMAN TRIAL II: THE FINAL CONFLICT, blends scifi, human dynamics, warfare and romance set against the backdrop of a rebuilding, but fragile America.
Stelly is also the author of an erotic comedy, NATHAN’S COUGAR (2011) and is currently at work on his next novel, a crime drama titled UNDER COLOR OF AUTHORITY which he hopes will find the bookshelves in 2013.
