Kyle Keyes Releases Book Two in the Quantum Roots Satire Series
by BWW News Desk - Mar 24, 2017

The metamorphous holds an eerie transformation, cloaked with rolling sagebrush and horse whinnies from yesteryear, which causes DPA Director, Alexis Grumman to rethink the validity of worm holes. 'Creation is a worm hole,' replies Dr. Norman Daly, 'Atoms require hadrons to form a nucleus, and each hadron comes through it's own worm hole. Two quarks form the bi-dimensional plane needed to support the hole. The remaining quark squeezes through this hole, after which The First two quarks follow to shape the hadron to a given genetic, configuration. The hole then closes to divide time from timeless.' The gunfighter is wanted for multiple killings, a consequence that keeps the slender computer wizard on the run from authorities - and domineering wife, Ivy Chapman. As in Quantum Roots, aka The Vigilante Sightings, Quantum Roots II is based on mounting evidence that people form from recycled energy. Quantum Roots II: Worm Holes is available for purchase in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: Quantum Roots II: Worm Holes By Kyle Keyes Published: February 2017 ISBN: 978-0986437496 Pages: 296 Genre: Fiction, Satire About the Author: Born To Write: Older Americans often come from whistle stop towns painted by Norman Rockwell. Kyle Keyes grew up in Clayton, a South Jersey borough first founded as Fislerville. Clayton had a small urban district with street lights, but no indoor plumbing. Farmland and outhouses were a sign of the times. Clayton was so small, that Keye's aunt doubled as his Sixth Grade school teacher, who once said that Kyle lived with his nose between the bookends. She must have known something. Keyes went to Temple Tech for concrete and steel design in 1956 and 1957. He never became an engineer, but still has a red, tinker toy motor and his World War II, Erector Set. The early Sixties found Kyle in the U.S. Army where his top sergeant would daily bark, 'You just say morning, trooper. I'll decide if it's good or not!' Keyes wholesaled bakery products to food chains for thirty years, and wrote odd items for local newspapers. He is widowed and currently lives in Florida. He has two children, Kathleen and Daniel. Grand children are now grown and too old for tales about railroads and yesterday's America. This leaves Keyes no option but to write books.
