Mr. Frechin's first book is an adventure/horror novel called The Event (2005) and features Jack Macklin as a man faced with insurmountable odds when he discovers that everyone has disappeared and the countryside is on fire. His journeys lead him to the discovery of other survivors and a rising evil in the world. With his group and the discovery of 'special' animal friends, Jack and his band face the ultimate challenge when good vs. evil in an epic final battle. He is currently working on a new novel tentatively entitled 'Wizard of Dreams' hopefully due out in the fall of 2006.
