Read full description of the books The Safety Factor: The Cost of War (Volume 2):In the near future, Earth's population has topped 10 billion and civilization is teetering on the brink of destruction. Secret societies have seized control of the world’s governments through “stealth politics”, using a hierarchy of “spook” organizations as their police force. Rene, a brilliant and unorthodox technician, covertly travels back in time some 65 years to the time period of the Third World War (circa 2015). His mission is to save the woman he has fallen in love with (across time) from suicide. They join forces with our time traveling submarine and its 18th century refugees from the first Safety Factor book, but are forced to flee yet another 365 years into the future - to escape a world falling into unprecedented social turmoil. Is there anything they can do to stop the endless cycles of empire building, prosperity, decline, collapse and chaos that the human race has experienced since the beginning of time? This is the second book of The Safety Factor trilogy.
Read information about the authorMr. Travis has a long professional career (30 years) in computing technology. Starting out in what was once called Data Processing (DP), then Information Management (IM) and now Information Technology (IT), he has written a tremendous amount of technical documentation to support his evolving IT roles (programmer, technical support specialist, designer, engineer, and consultant). In addition, he occasionally conducts classroom training in the IT field. This experience has given him the ability to write quickly while coordinating very complex material, and make it interesting at the same time.
Much of his early career was spent working for the State of Washington as a civil servant. In 1997 he moved his family to the San Francisco bay area, where he could work as a consultant. Two of his first three years there were spent consulting for Automatic Data Processing Inc. (ADP). Since then he has traveled all over the United States, working for various US government agencies and their closely related corporations.
He’s worked at the following Federal and related organizations (in alphabetical order); The Aerospace Corporation, Bechtel Nevada, Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Department of Justice - Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), Department of Justice - Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Fluor Hanford, HRL Laboratories, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), Social Security Administration (SSA), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Uranium Disposition Services (UDS), and the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP).
This experience has given him keen and even stark insights into government and politics, which he likes to pass on to his readers. Though still fascinated by computers, most of his other interests are geared towards science itself. They include (also in alphabetical order) astronomy, chemistry, cosmology, mathematics, physics, and psychology. He also has life long interests in the humanities including history, metaphysics, philosophy and religion. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from The Evergreen State College.
In writing fiction, he draws on all his interests and personal experience to convey the story. He strives for realism and does not like to “invent” things, just to make the story line go in a desired direction. Where he lacks knowledge, he does research. And where he lacks experience, he recruits help from those who have it. He likes to write about non-trivial subjects by addressing critical scientific, social and technological issues that directly impact the future of our civilization, and humanity itself.
For recreation, he likes to ride his motorcycle in the deserts of the Southwest. He collects old personal computers and handheld calculators, enjoys reading scientific texts and science fiction stories.
