Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult author Brian Fitzpatrick will be taking over our Twitter account.
Brian Fitzpatrick was born and raised in Southern California, and still resides there with his wife and son. His early exposure to horror and science fiction films influenced his writing from the beginning. He grew up writing short stories featuring vampires, zombies, and aliens. For the past dozen years Brian wrote screenplays exclusively, focusing on epic adventures and horror stories. He still writes for the big screen, but for the past 3 years, he’s changed paths to novel writing. Mechcraft is his first novel.
Jake London’s ideal teen life is thrown into chaos when he discovers the ability to control a swarm of shape-shifting nanotechnology that has, until recently, lain dormant in his DNA. Mechcraft is the skill of controlling the nanotech, summoning and creating tools, weapons, and even machines. Being the first ever born with the nanotech, warring factions desire to use him for their own sinister ends. Now, with two Mechcraft agents at his side, and a horde of enemies chasing them down, Jake finds himself in a desperate race to safety. Will agents Bex and Trent be able to keep Jake safe against relentless Sasha? What unique powers will Jake be able to manifest? He could put an end to the decades old faction war, or be the destroyer of all Mechcrafters.
