HUSBAND & WIFE AUTHOR DUO JOIN FORCES TO PEN SUMMER 2020’s MUST-READ MEDICAL THRILLER… WITH A SCI-FI TWIST. Donated by the awesome SMITH PUBLICITY, INC.!
Percivious Insomnia -- the debut novel from Calgary-based husband-and-wife author duo JJ & AJ Cook, M.D., set for release on August 4, 2020 with FriesenPress -- insomnia isn’t just an unfortunate side effect; it is the pandemic sweeping the globe, leaving people unable to function and society on the brink of collapse.
Percivious Insomnia (Percivious Trilogy #1)
By JJ Cook & AJ Cook, MD
In a year as surreal and stressful as 2020 has been, it’s little wonder that people around the world are experiencing more sleepless nights than ever before; in fact, “sleep is emerging as the latest casualty of the COVID-19 crisis” according to a recent forum hosted by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, where experts called the current situation a “perfect storm of sleep problems” and noted the “severe” implications of chronic insomnia.
As an unlikely collection of scientists and citizens come together in a race against the clock to find a cure, disturbing revelations about the underlying cause of the insomnia epidemic come to light that could completely unravel civilization as we know it… and throw into question humanity’s place in the universe.
The first book in the “Percivious” trilogy, Percivious Insomnia is a gripping work of contemporary fiction centered on an ominous and otherworldly mystery, and a story which brings together two unique perspectives to create a realistic medical thriller with an imaginative sci-fi twist.
Drawing on AJ’s direct experience as a medical doctor and pediatric surgeon and JJ’s background across a range of industries, giving insight and depth to characters spanning an array of disciplines, ages, countries, and cultures, the “Percivious” trilogy sets a unique and original course for fiction of the future, and paints a timely, prescient portrait of today’s globalized society… and what may exist beyond the realm of our current understanding.
“The ultimate in altruism lives at the heart of the Percivious Trilogy,” share JJ & AJ of their inspiration to pen this series. “Something pure that has been lost is now found in a new version of our own evolution.”
One of summer 2020’s most exciting Canadian fiction debuts, Percivious Insomnia will be released in hardcover, paperback and ebook on August 4, 2020, with an audiobook edition to follow in Fall 2020.

The forgoing is the bio from the back of my novels and one might conclude from this information that I was a poor employee ... either lazy or didn't know what I was doing ... and was kicked off a lot of jobs.
You would be partially correct, at least in surmising that I don't know what I am doing. As for my being a poor employee, you would have to ask my bosses ... although I think I've managed to trick the one I have now.
Of course, when I had my own business my boss thought I was marvelous.
Truthfully, I've managed over the years to find employment regardless of my location or the problems that might exist with the economy. I enjoyed much of that experience at the time and am glad that I attained it.
I've also visited a good portion of North America and lived in several areas of Canada where I met some great people and enjoyed some wonderful country.
Speaking of great people, Karen and I are parents to four great people who have supplied eight grandchildren who show that improvements can be possible in each generation. One of those has added a great-grand daughter to the line.
