A former Merchant Marine sailor, Israeli Defense Forces paratrooper and special operator, Hartov is currently a task force commander in the New York Guard.
Paul Awad and Kathryn O’Sullivan will be on hand from 2 to 4 p.m., Aug. 20, signing their book “When Earth Shall Be No More.” In this thrilling science fiction story of survival, environmental scientist Constance Roy is one of 49 refugees rescued from Earth’s destruction and transported to the ark spaceship Orb by an automaton race called the Curators. A year has passed since their rescue, but now, with the ship’s orbit decaying, the refugees seem doomed to crash into Jupiter’s fiery belly.
Two time streams collide when the Constance on Earth discovers that her son Nicolas has the ability to save the Orb and its inhabitants. Now she must battle treacherous Curators wishing to destroy Nicolas, while on the Orb, another Constance must fight to save the ship from Jupiter’s fatal pull. Only together can they save their son – and future generations of humankind.
