The story may be about virtual reality, but this book is grounded in the truth of the competitive nature of power, position, and wealth.
LOS ANGELES –
(PRWEB) August 27, 2014 -- It is not often you meet someone who leaves a successful career to chase his dreams.
Stan Yocum always knew he wanted to be a writer. After obtaining a degree in theater arts, Yocum shifted to a left-brain career in the analytical business world. 30 years later, the dream was still knocking and Yocum left his career as a businessman to become a full-time author. Eight manuscripts and two published books later, Yocum is establishing himself as a prominent voice in indie-suspense novels.
Yocum’s thriller “Unrelenting Nightmare” follows Stuart Garrison, a virtual reality software developer on the cusp of industry domination, as he navigates a deadly cat-and-mouse game with an international assassin hired by his fierce competitor. The stakes are high, as Garrison tries to outwit his clever potential killer while releasing an innovative new technology to the world.
Yocum brings his theater background and extensive experience in the business world to “Unrelenting Nightmare” while tackling important topics in today’s society, such as the prevalence of violence and the impact of virtual reality on youth.
“The story may be about virtual reality, but this book is grounded in the truth of the competitive nature of power, position, and wealth,” Yocum said.
