Author G. A. Minton
G.A. Minton has been an ardent fan of horror and sci-fi his entire life. Growing up as an Air Force brat, he’s lived in different cities across the U.S., thus allowing him to observe a variety of cultures. When he isn’t writing, you can usually find him out on the golf course, chasing after a little white ball. His other hobbies include reading, traveling, fishing, snorkeling, working out, listening to hard rock music, and watching great movies. He has a wife, a son and daughter, and two Bengal cats.
Weirdly enough, it was only after G.A. was rear-ended by a drunk driver and suffered a closed-head injury, that he developed a newfound passion for writing (a true story, even though it sounds like a fictitious plot for a horror novel). He pens his novels freestyle, almost in a stream of consciousness, relying on no outlines, formats, or templates for assistance—the narrative is able to flow freely from his imagination, ending up with a storyline that contains an ordered sequence of events. One might surmise that the damaged neurons in his frontal cortex had rearranged themselves into a different pattern, thereby enhancing the creative elements in his brain. Who knows? Stranger things have happened! Currently, G.A. is in the process of completing his second novel, a dark, supernatural tale of horror that takes Good vs. Evil to a whole new level.

Sixteen-year-old Joshua Allen was born with an extra chromosome—a genetic aberration known as Trisomy XXI, or Down Syndrome. A serious accident leaves the mentally-challenged adolescent in a coma at the hospital, where he receives a mysterious injection that endows him with supernatural powers.
The transformed teen is linked to a string of bizarre, unexplained deaths in town that have both the sheriff and the coroner baffled. A ghastly creature from another planet lands on Earth and begins its hunt for the teenager—viciously slaughtering anyone in its path in order to complete its deadly mission.
The salvation of an entire race of aliens is in the balance, as Joshua and his friends are thrown into a horrific life-and-death struggle with the seemingly indestructible extraterrestrial being.
TRISOMY XXI provides an epicurean feast of horror, science fiction, and mystery—all seasoned with a pinch of humor that will satiate the appetite of even the most gourmet of readers. If the likes of Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Michael Crichton were ever to have collectively penned a spine-tingling tale of horror, this would be it!
Delivering a roller-coaster ride full of thrills for its unsuspecting audience, TRISOMY XXI will intrigue every intelligent reader with its alluring array of unforeseen twists and turns. Packed with tension and excitement, this chimeric version of Alien meets The Thing is a powerful story that is guaranteed to capture your immediate attention. You won’t be able to put this book down!
