Patrick Kirk has published his new book “Lightning Storm”: a compelling story set in Georgia and primarily in Southern California that is a fictional account of the lives of Bryan
and Carolyn Jenkins as they traverse through several booms and busts in technology, real estate, and the energy sector.

The story is in some ways a high-tech suspense thriller; part romance, part spy novel. It is about business, mentorship, career changes and their effects on a marriage and having a family in the 90’s. It’s also about corporate corruption and greed and how the PC software revolution assisted in the decline in American business values. It’s a dissection of the Enron-driven rolling electrical blackouts and the company’s ultimate demise.

Some of the story lines are imagined after people, places, events and technology encountered by the author during his thirty years in the PC software business.

Published by Page Publishing, Patrick Kirk’s engrossing book is a provocative look at the profound effects of technology’s intrusion into every facet of modern life.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Lightning Storm” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
