Near the end of the 21st Century, many things have changed in the world, and too many remained the same. Governments became corporations and the corporations ran the government for profit. But most people still wanted the same things; a few luxuries, a few friends, and a little something to call their own. Jardin Collum was one of those people just looking for something simple to enjoy life; and then a new client showed up, and nothing would be simple anymore.

Tim manages rocket programs by day, and collects hobbies by night. Writing has been the longest running hobby, going back to a spooky story submitted in 6th grade for a Halloween contest; he won first place and a pumpkin full of candy. Over the years there has been a collection of short stories and scenes that have never been seen past his laptop. He took creative writing in college, but his works since have all been scholastic and technical. Tim hopes his first publication of Switch will be the step that will take his writing from a hobby to a proper obsession. His second fiction submission in life is an opportunity to aspire to his favorite quote, "If you wou’d not be forgotten as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.” - Benjamin Franklin
