About Shea - Longer Version

Shea Oliver is a science fiction and horror writer with a passion for telling stories that challenge readers' assumptions and stereotypes. In his first published novel, The Betrayal of Ka, a protagonist's decision to sell drugs to a young boy results in the death of the child.

Shea enjoys taking readers them on deeply emotional journeys to explore his characters motivations, mindset, and decisions. While his stories are written to be entertaining tales, they also are designed to be works that prompt readers to explore their own thoughts, behaviors, and treatment of others.

During a difficult personal period, Shea solo-climbed and sat alone atop a high mountain peak in Rocky Mountain National Park to assess his life. As he mediated in that beautiful setting, his long-dormant dream of becoming a novelist reemerged, and the next day, he began writing his first novel.

Shea's professional career spans numerous industries with significant experience in enterprise software sales and digital marketing. He has founded multiple companies, coached other entrepreneurs, and taught public speaking at Colorado State University.

Shea happily declares that his greatest achievement in life is being the father to two amazing sons. He is also an ardent nature lover, teardrop trailer enthusiast, and photographer. When not pounding on his keyboard, Shea can often be found in the wilderness, hiking alone, and enjoying life.

The Betrayal of Ka (The Transprophetics: Book One)

The Blurb

As the spaceship secretly lands on Earth, Ka's mission is clear: find and kill Transprophetics. His shipmates think of him as a killer. On his home planet of Koranth, he is considered a murderer. Haunted in his dreams by the boy whose life he stole, Ka struggles to define who he really is.

A girl in a temple in Thailand. A boy kidnapped in Mexico. Both can do the impossible. Both can move objects with their minds. These two Transprophetics pose grave risks to the Donovackia Corporation as it plans its invasion of Earth.

With a blade in his hand, Ka's decision to kill, or not, will reverberate across the galaxy.
