A terrifying plane ride into the unknown.
Mason Tucker, a passenger of American Skyways Flight 3108, believes he is headed for home. But unbeknownst to him, the plane he has just boarded will shortly be entering stormy weather, where it will be forced off course and sent directly over a mysterious section of ocean commonly known as the Bermuda Triangle.
Mason, on a cross-country flight from Florida to New Hampshire, believes he is headed home to his apartment and a cat named Bruno. But not long after taking off, the aging aircraft he’s flying in hits severe weather and is forced to veer out over the Atlantic Ocean. Buffeted on all sides by the treacherous elements, the plane encounters a strange vortex in the center of the thunderstorm. Drawn in by it, Mason and his fellow hapless travelers can only hang on and struggle to survive as they are dragged out of their familiar world and propelled straight into the unknown.
“Just when you think you’ve figured out what will happen next, what new, uncanny obstacle will ignite another flame in Mason’s path, you discover how very wrong you were. The unknown and the known intersect to form new realities in this unique and unpredictable sci-fi thriller in which the past and the future are nearly indecipherable.” — Jennifer Padgett, Seattle Book Review

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My love for science fiction in general as well as my love for the classic television series The Twilight Zone definitely gave rise to my newest work, Flight 3108. Though it has evolved from a short story into a novella of over two hundred pages, I believe it has managed to retain the creepy, mind-bending feel I was trying to achieve, while giving a nod to Douglas Adams, whose work also shaped certain parts of the tale.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I wanted everyday people in the story — competent, somewhat skilled individuals capable of delivering what was necessary for their particular role — but without any extraordinary abilities or powers. In particular I wanted a main character with a less-than-ideal personal life who was somewhat familiar with assuming a leadership role. Other more minor characters, although not exactly critical to the final outcome, played their own parts and were essential to the overall story: the caring and nurturing flight attendant, the ex-prepper with his knowledge base, the beefy former soldier, the young millennial who needs a change of perspective. All of these and others came about partly from the vision I had in my head at the beginning and partly from simple necessity as the story, and they, evolved.
