About the Book
This is a story about life in the United States of America in the year 2100. Eighty percent of the population is being controlled by a corrupt government that dictates how people live their daily lives. The other 20 percent live in ghettos or hide underground in a thriving community where they still live a life based on the principles of our founding fathers. The government calls them the illegals, and it is constantly trying to capture them to reform them into what it deems normal citizens. The government has never been able to find the illegals’ caves. A romance develops when one day, an IT programmer finds herself in a life-and-death situation and is rescued by an illegal. That is the start of a conspiracy by people on both sides to change life in the United States back to what it had been before.
About the Author
Born post–World War II in a little town of the Flemish part of Belgium, Jozef was exposed to art daily. His father, a writer and singer, instilled in Jozef a love of music and poetry and a strict, conservative life. An ambitious IT career and love brought him to the US. Jozef kept writing poetry but never published any. When his IT career abruptly ended and age became a significant factor in finding a job, Jozef was forced to retire. It was then that he took a major leap into the unknown world of writing a book. The creative mind found a way, like oil on water, to put in writing a dreamed-up story in a language that is not his native tongue. Jozef loves the outdoors, camping, wildlife stories, and especially nature in this beautiful country that has accepted him as a citizen—the United States of America.
