Marco Rossini is a historian with no political aspirations, and no desire for power. However, he possesses unique knowledge that is about to change his life: he knows the human history of the planet Earth. The year is 2796 CE, and on the planet Genesis, human civilization looks very similar to the world it left behind. One difference dominates: a Church, created by the United Nations to compel peace, has ruled for seven centuries. Now, in the wake of a brutal war that aligned humanity with the new rulers of Earth, the old ways have been shattered, and Genesis needs a new, egalitarian government. Marco is the right man to help lead the change, but as the professor soon discovers, the battle between Church and state is far from over, and both sides are willing to spill blood. Struggling to remake his world, to find love, and to survive in troubled political waters, can Marco Rossini change history?
I taught high school history for thirty-five years in just two schools in the Waterloo, Ontario region. My wife and business partner, Anne, and I have been married for 40 beautiful years. We have three adult children and three grandchildren. In 2002 I wrote an educational book for high school students about writing skills in the discipline of History. "Getting it Right In History Class" is available in Canadian and International editions at Wintertickle Press.
In 2006 Iceberg Publishing commissioned me to write an inspirational book about my years in the classroom. "A Personal Journey to the Heart of Teaching" was published in 2007. The book won a Bronze Medal at the IPPY International Awards in Los Angeles in May, 2008. I retired from teaching the next month.
My wife and I decided to strike off on our own and founded our own publishing company in December, 2013. We called it, Fiora Books. Our good friends at Iceberg Publishing turned my award winning book back over to us to publish under the Fiora Books imprint. The 2014 edition of "A Personal Journey to the Heart of Teaching will be available in May, 2014 on Amazon in paperback and eBook formats.
My next project is to launch a series of science fiction novels called "The Genesis Saga". The first title in the series is scheduled for publication in the fall of this year.
