For immediate release


Los Angeles, California: Ryan Southwick, one of the pioneers of the Silicon Valley Boom and agile software transformation, makes his literary debut as a speculative fiction author and releases the first book in "The Z-Tech Chronicles" series on June 16th, 2020. Published by Water Dragon Publishing, "Angels in the Mist" is a thrilling combination of contemporary science fiction and urban fantasy where the supernatural meets the ultra-modern.


Anne Perrin avoids socializing outside of the safety of her waitressing job. Still, when her cautious lifestyle lets the perfect partner slip through her fingers, she vows she won't let it happen again and ventures into San Francisco to find happiness.


Her first night out in a decade becomes a nightmare unexpectedly interrupted by a mysterious savior. Valiant, smart, compassionate, Charlie is exactly the partner Anne has been looking for, and best of all, he likes her too. Yet their happiness is cut short. An assailant with unexpected strength plunges Anne into a world beyond imagination. An eclectic group of extraordinary individuals in a secretive high-tech organization known as Z-Tech may be the solution to Anne's lifelong loneliness and the city's only hope against an ancient evil. Together, they must fight back the only way they know how — with determination and ultra-technology.


Praised by Howling Frog Books as a real page-turner with lots of action and suspense, "Angels in the Mist" is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
