The End of Free Will
"You're turning them into robots."

Assaults by the teenage thugs who roamed the halls at Franklin High were now so common they had become second page news. But Karin had no intention of becoming just another grisly anecdote in the campus annals, not if she could help it. Besides, she had to get to them before they got to her, so she fought back with the only weapon she had...Memes.
About Mike Owens (Virginia Beach, Virginia Author)
Mike Owens was born in a small North Carolina town, nearby Winston-Salem being the closest identifiable landmark. He claims to bleed Tar Heel Blue, having received both his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, NC. He topped off the educational effort with an MFA degree in creative writing from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA.
During his years of medical practice he worked extensively with hospice programs, and his writing themes involve the often-contentious interaction of medical science and medical ethics. His latest work, SCREWED, published by The Wild Rose Press, is his first venture into the world of steamy romance. He lives in Norfolk, VA with wife, Marilyn, and the ghost of their beloved Weimaraner, Molly.
