From the back cover:

Normal teenagers flip burgers to earn extra cash in high school. I am not a normal teenager.​

My name is Tony Pershing and I broke up with my girlfriend just before prom because I was worried my job monitoring a mysterious portal to space for an enigmatic company named Corporate would put her in danger. In other words, I suck at making decisions. My best friend and Corporate co-worker is Jeff Harper, who is obsessed with the music of Styx and his 1976 Chevy Vega. He got sucked through the portal on prom night and now, armed with an arsenal of bizarre weapons and a mild case of PTSD, I've got to find out what happened to him. 

I also have to deal with a sudden and random ability to spout off information I never knew and a neurotic alien real estate developer bent on turning Earth into a resort planet. 

Remember this the next time you think you're having a bad day.

The year is 1999 and the world is bracing for the potential cataclysm known as Y2K.Kevin Raulston, though, is more concerned with running his bookstore, Someone Else's Books, fighting his losing battle with a food addiction, and ridding Earth of the extraterrestrial menace known Herpezoids. One night, a Herpezoid attacks during a meeting of Kevin's book club and he discovers a new threat far more ominous than Y2K. Kevin must train his book club to fight as he does, even as he navigates an unexpected romance. 

My self-published novel, Kilroy Was Here, is almost here. 

Kilroy Was Here tells the story of Tony Pershing, a high school senior who works as an intern for a mysterious company known only as Corporate. He and his best friend Jeff Harper guard a portal to space over a river through the hometown. On prom night, Jeff and his girlfriend Leigh Ann are sucked through the portal when it is breached by an egomaniacal alien real estate developer with a penchant for haikus.
