"I see you brought the fire..." This project
has been a dream of mine since I was a

with my brother James, and my partner in
crime @IntrepidPix on this epic horror movie
- in space - for @UniversalPics.

Plot synopsis of The Season of Passage: "Dr. Lauren Wagner
was a celebrity. She was involved with the most exciting
adventure mankind had ever undertaken: a manned expedition
to Mars. The whole world admired and respected her. But
Lauren knew fear. Inside―voices entreating her to love
them. Outside―the mystery of the missing group that had
gone before her. The dead group. But were they simply
dead? Or something else? A haunting and unforgettable
blend of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and suspense
from one of America's bestselling writers. A novel you
won't soon forget."
