I’m Cruz. Whatcha Want? In 2015, when I introduced readers to the rainy, Blade Runner-ish world of Liquid Cool it was the tonal reverse of my first sci-fi series, After Eden. Both series are dystopian sci-fi but where After Eden was the events and people leading to WW III 75 years in the future (very somber and certainly not funny), …

I started my published author career with the After Eden Series and then added The Sleepy Hollow Horrors series two years later. It was the end of 2014 when I mapped out what my next series would be.

I loved Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. The classic sci-fi movie Blade Runner is loosely based on the story, but they are both great works in their own separate mediums.
