About the Author:
“I have tried to write the White Horse Chronicles as a realistic scenario based on climate-change research. Since I began writing this series of stories, advances in the ongoing research on climate-change and the response of governments and industry to these findings have continued to convince me that societies will have a difficult time preventing its full effects and coping with its impacts.”
