The Device by Patrick Skelton

When John Timmons finds an unusual metal object behind his cabin in Colorado, he suspects it belongs to his new neighbor, Jacob Mowat--a retired nuclear engineer who claims to have been employed by the government. As their friendship progresses, John discovers that his neighbor is guarding a terrible secret. His search for answers leads to a startling truth about his own troubled past as an orphan and the fate of humanity.

THE DEVICE is a character-driven mystery that explores loss and redemption, corruption and miracles. Fans of speculative fiction--George Orwell's 1984 and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World---will enjoy the chilling climax.

Patrick Skelton resides in Columbus, OH with his wife Jennifer. He is currently writing his second novel.

Readers have commented that they enjoy the mystery aspect of the story. The Device is as much a character driven mystery as it is science fiction.

Why did you self publish?
I enjoy having complete control of the story and being able to price how I want to.

How long does it take you to write your first draft?
I worked on the first draft for three years.

What inspired you to write this particular story?
Current events and a love for the classic dystopian novel, 1984.
