Knowledge and science can be powerful forces,” Drolet said. “But human relationships are even more powerful. The ethical decisions we make have the power to change the world.

If you could travel through time, what would you change?

Author and Emmy-winner Pierre M. Drolet’s debut novel, “The Gateway” follows MIT graduate and retired Marine Matthew as he makes a shocking discovery at a technology company where he works, finding he must finish building a time machine that his father created decades before.

“Knowledge and science can be powerful forces,” Drolet said. “But human relationships are even more powerful. The ethical decisions we make have the power to change the world.”

As he stumbles across dark family secrets, faces a powerful business tycoon and travels into his fathers past, Matthew must save his father and save the machine from falling into the wrong hands. He must protect his family and alter the past by using technology for good.

An award-winning Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) Visual Effects artist, author Drolet has worked in the visual effects field for more than 15 years on iconic science fiction television shows and movies, including several incarnations of “Star Trek,” “Battlestar Galactica,” and “Firefly.”

Inspired by his own experiences with advanced technologies, he takes readers on a journey through generations in a face-off between good and evil in his new novel. Besides providing an entertaining story, Drolet begs the reader to analyze the power of technology and its profound effect on humanity, for better or for worse.
