Background to the Story
About a year ago a close family friend (on my wife’s side) was murdered. His name was Donald May and he spent most of his life serving his country as a Navy Seal and after retiring he went into law enforcement. Now, I don’t want to get into the specifics, especially since the judicial system has not concluded on the case, but suffice it to say he was a close friend and his death had an impact on my family.
Being in the Navy myself I felt a kinship with him and I wanted to honor his life by dedicating a story to him. That story became SoulMatch. SoulMatch is a story about a distant planet where humans and the native lifeforms are in the midst of a civil war. Over several centuries humans and those natives have bred together and created a hybrid race. This is a story about faith, in ourselves and in there being a divine higher power.
Rest in peace, Donald May
