After Mike goes through a gut-wrenching betrayal by his fiancée, he finds himself in what he thinks might be the afterlife. But this is no heaven. The gods made a mistake and created another Earth in a parallel universe, putting both universes in peril. They need someone from his planet to destroy the alternate, and Mike is randomly selected for the job. Trapped in an impossible choice, Mike accepts his mission and is returned to an Earth - and a body - so unlike his own. There, he meets Jane, who is - unbeknownst to him - the secret leader of an organization bent on tracking down Earth's saboteur. In the face of her passion for humanity, Mike's resolve falters. If Mike won't complete his mission, the gods will.
After working for several years as a professor in Brazil, C. Hofsetz moved to the United States and changed careers. Currently, he is a Software Engineer Manager at Microsoft by day, and a writer by night. Software engineering and computers have been his passion since he was a teenager, but he’s been reading novels for longer than writing code. One day, he couldn’t help it anymore. He wrote the first chapter of a book. How bad could it be? But things escalated quickly. Next thing he knew, he was writing yet another chapter, and then the next. He tried to hide it, but his family knew he was up to something. When they figured out what he was doing, it was too late—he accidentally had written a whole book. The result of this journey is Challenges of The Gods, a story about a fantastic world of gods meddling with humans.
Alfred Tam was born in San Francisco, CA and raised in the Bay Area. Growing up as a first generation Chinese American, he was fascinated with cartoon voices and would mimic both American cartoon characters as well as his favorite anime heroes. Alfred went on to study biochemistry in University of California: San Diego, with additional courses in German and French language. He eventually pursued a career in veterinary medicine at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. His passion for public speaking and voice over had not deteriorated, however, and he started the first veterinary public speaking club during his medical training. After finally completing his degree, Dr. Tam began narrating for podcasts, YouTube videos, and audible. His most favorite genre is science fiction, both to read and narrate, because of the infinite possibilities these worlds could provide by changing one simple rule of physics and mathematics. Alfred is fluent in English and Chinese, proficient in Spanish, and knows basic German and French. You can find Dr. Tam practicing emergency veterinary medicine in South Florida (starting 2020) and primarily hear his voices on audible. Otherwise, he could be found at the beach throwing the frisbee with his Golden Retriever, Lady, or air-balling three-pointers on the basketball court.
