Todd Easterling is a novelist based in San Diego California, originally discovered by the acclaimed Pinder Lane Garon-Brooke Literary Agency in New York, of John Grisham fame.
Todd Easterling recently completed his fourth novel (currently in editing), an epic high-concept suspense story of 396,000 words based on years of research on great people from history (and their contributions), genetics, issues facing Earth's species, and development of the world's gods and religions. Todd was influenced by people who kindly provided technical input on his previous books, such as Dr. Ian Wilmut (first scientist to clone a mammal, "Dolly the sheep") and Dr. Raul Cano, the scientist who first extracted dinosaur DNA from ancient amber, which helped encourage author Michael Crichton to write Jurassic Park. Todd's vision for the project was to create a story that is exciting, supported by science, includes incredible real locations and accurate history, is capable of being marketed to worldwide audiences, and can support broad publishing, motion picture, and merchandise business models. Research for the story included trips to Rome, Florence, Venice, and Pisa Italy, as well as London and Paris.
"It's much longer than my previous novels, not by plan or intent but simply because of the need to create credibility for the high-concept story, which is aimed at mass-market international audiences, and potential film rights. It is the first in a planned series, with the goal of a franchise that includes merchandising, etc. It is over three times as long as "The Miracle Man" and "The First Witness." I love research and facts, and the research involved for this story was intense and changed my life forever. There were trips to London, Paris, Rome, Florence, Pisa, and Venice Italy."
