Cliff Ball--Usurper

Cliff Ball was born in 1974 in Arizona, is single, and currently lives in the Dallas/Forth Worth area. He has a BA in English from Midwestern State in Wichita Falls, and is currently pursuing a 2nd BA at University of North Texas so that he can eventually get an MA in Creative Writing from UNT. Cliff has published three novels, The Usurper, Don't Mess With Earth, and Out of Time. He also works for himself as a copy-editor.

Product description: The Usurper is about the KGB and the USSR embarking on a plan to take down the US from within through the use of terrorism. No matter what the terrorists believe, as long as they have a problem with the Western powers and the United States, the KGB backs them, along with a super rich Spaniard who can't stand the USA. Once the Soviet Union dissolves, Al Qaeda fills in that power vacuum and the inside man that the KGB has who will eventually bring down the US, sides with them, and the US ends up never being the same again. A small group of resistance fighters, led by one of the passengers of United Flight 93(who survive in this novel), aim to take down the now President of the United States.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book? If you like political thrillers and alternate history, then this novel is for you.

Q: Why did you go indie? I prefer doing everything myself, and I enjoy the challenge of it.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre? For the political thriller, I like Tom Clancy. I usually write science fiction/alternate history, so I enjoy reading S.M. Stirling, Harry Turtledove, Eric Flint.
