ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jason McMillan, outside of a short stint living and working in Yellowstone National Park, was born and raised in Nebraska. After attending the University of Nebraska, he traveled to Europe and worked as a residential painter, and then worked in corporate America. A long-time writer of short-stories and creator of worlds, his hobby became a multi-year devotion which resulted in his debut novel, The Grey Zone.
Jason currently resides in Omaha and, when he is not busy writing or working part-time, he is often reading, watching films, or discussing politics with friends and family. Currently working on a sequel, Jason hopes to expand the story of the Global Federation of Nations into a multi-book series.
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Grey Zone
A Global Federation
of Nations Book
A fundamentalist on the run.
A commander on the hunt.
And a journalist on the scent.
This is America in 2072.
And the future is grey.
For most of the world, life had improved after the implementation of the Basic Human Standard and the formation of the Global Federation of Nations. However, after fifteen years, there are some who still fight against the principles of the organization. Natalie Kelley is a journalist for the Chicago Tribune whose reporting focuses on American terrorist groups in opposition to the GFN.
When an Oklahoma City restaurant is attacked, Natalie travels to investigate the incident, but soon begins to question whether the assault was an amateur action or part of a larger conspiracy.
The Grey Zone follows Natalie and a cast of characters from both sides of the battle and explores the ramifications of an exceedingly globalized planet as conflicting ideologies clash across the United States.
AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK, KINDLE, AND AUDIOBOOK
PRAISE FOR THE GREY ZONE
"In addition to its social and political commentary, the novel is successful at world building and handling multiple story lines. Its society and characters ring true but are differentiated enough to respond to the new world's demands. New technology, including virtual-reality infused satellite imaging, is explained and incorporated well, made to blend with present tech like drone footage and video calls. The text lays satisfying groundwork that can easily be built upon. Both an entertaining story and a thought-provoking commentary on present and future social issues, The Grey Zone is a strong introduction to a new science fiction series."
