About The Guestpert/Author:
Darren Campo is a television producer and executive. Author. New media pioneer. And university professor. His philosophical ingenuity and storytelling ability has fostered one of the most intriguing literary series written in the best-selling “Alex Detail’s Revolution,” “Alex Detail’s Rebellion,” “Disappearing Spell” and “Stingers.”
As a television producer and executive, Darren is verse in developing all genres of content. Darren serves as head of program strategy for Food Network and Cooking Channel. Previously he was head of programming at truTV, and has been an executive at Court TV and CBS. Just prior to the launch of truTV, Multichannel News named Darren Campo one of “40 Under 40” to watch.
But Darren’s fare for content can ride the wave of reality trends to drawing on inspirations for his own creative writing from Schopenhauer, Schrödinger and Joseph Campbell to create the epic adventure and story of intrigue that Alex Detail takes.
Early critique of Darren’s first bestseller, “Alex Detail’s Revolution” has been cited as a work of ‘activation’, not unlike thematic nerve struck by Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code.
Darren is as an Adjunct Professor in the Entertainment, Media and Technology program at the NYU Stern School of Business, where he teaches “The Business of Producing.” He is also a graduate of the school.
About "Alex Detail's Revolution":
17-year-old Alex Detail has been kidnapped and sent off to fight in a hopeless war against The Harvesters, an alien force that is trying to extinguish Earth's Sun. Unfortunately for Alex's kidnappers (and the world) he has lost the mega-IQ that allowed him to win the last war with The Harvesters ten years ago when he was just 7 years old.
But now the House of Nations is out of options. The end of life is imminent. Alex must survive the war long enough to make it to Pluto, where, underneath the planet's frozen surface lies the only force in the solar system that can stop The Harvesters.
About "Alex Detail's Rebellion" - the sequel to Revolution:
Alex Detail is being assassinated.
The second Harvester war has ended, but Alex has never been in greater peril. Not only is Alex being hunted by his deadly clone, the seven-year-old George Spell, he is also the target of a House of Nations plot to expose Alex’s post-war experiments with The Harvesters and disgrace the genius war hero.
But when George Spell’s latest attempt to assassinate Alex Detail at the New York planetarium nearly kills hundreds of people, Alex escapes death only to find his would-be assassin suddenly kidnapped by the powerful mystic, Brother Lonadoon.
Now Alex must join Captain Odessa on a covert interplanetary rescue operation where they uncover clues left thousands of years ago by an ancient race desperately trying to send a message to the future. But the message might be too late, as phenomena are revealing the beginnings of an extinction level event caused by the ongoing war between Alex Detail and George Spell, one that could lead to the destruction of the entire solar system.
