Three thousand years ago, Pandora opened a box. And the world changed.
It's happened again.
While gathering firewood for his family, thirteen-year-old Kaspar comes across an ornate cast-iron box, and when he opens it, nothing happens. Or so he thinks. Almost half a world away, Jackie Parker, Graduate Student in Particle Physics, stumbles upon a unique phenomenon that has the power to cast her backwards through time. Then her priest, Father John-Paul, goes into a fugue state in which he receives Visions from God. The end of the
world is coming--and God demands that all Believers journey to the Portals of Enlightenment to enter the Gates of the Promised Land.
But what happens on Earth when all True Believers leave? TREASURE BOX, my completed 83K Speculative Fiction novel, explores the world after the Exodus--a world where Magic and Physics are one, and some things, like love and faith and hate and cruelty, remain.
Does Father John-Paul have acolytes named George and Ringo?
You start with three excellent sentences. Then it goes to hell in a handbasket. Who's the main character? Start with that. Don't explain. Just show us the problem and what happens if it doesn't get fixed.
