|About The Author
Author Charlie Pedersen emerged from the executive ranks of information technology, finance and the aerospace private sector to write genre-blend novels that tackle contemporary issues, placing them in a world of international suspense, science, and society . With a broad background that includes working with the Apollo Lunar module systems and the creation of what became America's largest Automated Teller Network, the Star System, he was able to achieve a clear understanding of the human and organizational dynamics necessary to effect significant large-scale change. You'll find the work: a compelling story taking you on a trek around the globe and across two centuries; a new level of knowledge, with compelling information and hyperlinks ; and on the leading edge of relevance.
His genre is fiction/visionary and science faction: the line between fact and fiction traveled by the reader's imagination. He's drawn to people who think "outside the building", thus his fascination with quantum science and global challenges.
His second book, WE x ∞ is an "E-quel" spun from his first novel Turn of the Century 2100, published 2/2007 and revised 11/2009. An E-quel is a quasi-screen play novel in hard and soft cover, but enhanced in eBook form with hyperlinks and an easy to visualize dialogue driven format...a compelling read with your mind's eye taking you to the future and across the world-like watching a movie while absorbing its embedded documentary..
First read WE x ∞ , browse the hyperlinks, and then read Turn of the Century 2100. It's the product of eight (8) years work. This is disruptive literature in a world described by some of our greatest minds as "chaos". .You'll not only enjoy it, you'll get it whether a conservative, liberal/progressive, libertarian, or just an avid reader. You won't be without opinion and will be disrupted with the "answers" (not blame).It should be read by everyone who cares about our present and future, and especially all "college age readers" around the globe. Have I left anyone out? Whatever your opinion, you will get it or go back under your rock! A native New Yorker, and a "native Californian", splitting his life on both coasts, the last 20 years in Huntington Beach (the true Surf City), and Westminster California. Charlie is a world traveler, most recently including all the continents including Antarctica. His depictions of the San Francisco bay area, New York City, and worldwide locations are factually and graphically accurate, albeit in a fiction context. He has raised four boys (these days, does it ever stop?), and is 67.
