As a graduate mechanical engineer, M. Don Schorn combined his interests in plastics and cars by working for several thermoplastics manufacturers supplying component parts to the automotive industry. His postgraduate education continued with a curriculum in Plastics Technology and individual course study in various technical and managerial programs. Mr. Schorn's design and manufacturing experience led to a number of new processing techniques and patentable innovations. Utilizing his manufacturing and plastics background, Mr. Schorn later joined a Detroit manufacturers' representative firm working directly with various OEM automotive divisions. After a successful professional career spanning more than 27 years, he retired early at the beginning of 1995 to pursue a second career in writing. Since then, Mr. Schorn has studied cosmology, paleoanthropology, and archaeology, along with extensive analysis of ancient records and sacred texts. Those studies allowed completion of five manuscripts as of this date, including this trilogy, which introduces the Elder Gods theory. The author's other non-fiction work, Reincarnation: Stepping Stones of Life, is an enlightening examination of the reincarnation concept and its application as a way-of-life. Mr. Schorn's fictional work, Emerging Dawn, details a global search for ancient artifacts connected with the Mayan End-Time prophecy anticipated to occur on December 21, 2012.
