OP: Tell us a little bit about Rebirth: The CORT Chronicles Book 3. What is it about?

David: Over one hundred years in the future, eleven-year-old Andy and his brother Zack come home to 2009, hoping to live normal lives. Yet something has gone wrong, they get back to a terrifying version of their hometown. In this edition strange new technologies have taken over and an underground city is about to reborn. The brothers find them self in a different world that they left. They must set out on a quest to save Trinity, New York, and Earth again. They need to find the source of this chaos and destroy it.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

David: I wrote this book to help people escape from the hard life and stress they are going through for the last one and half years, but especially with the Covid-19 epidemic. This virus continues to change lives forever. Yet, there is still hope at the end of this dark tunnel. This book looks at a world that is changing rapidly and going into the light. I hope this final chapter in my trilogy will bring an optimistic view of the world to children eleven to sixteen and to everybody who are losing hope right now. I also believe this book and my trilogy will change lives forever.

OP: What is special about your book?

David: “Rebirth” is special because it looks at the world in a different view. It is fast paced, action packed, great living characters, emotional and it shares an important message with everyone that is found rarely in other books in its genre.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

David: Every book that is published is different from others, because individuals have different stories they created. This is because every person sees their own world differently. The books they publish also create different worlds and characters.

OP: Have you published any other books, and do you plan to publish more?

David: I am the author of a book of poetry “Voices of The Heart” and two picture books: “The Enchanted Rope” and “Peanut” both cover real life situations. I also wrote a middle grade novel called The Portal the first book in the Cort Chronicles Trilogy. This book received a CIPA Merit award in Juvenile Fiction in 2018.
