DF Capps is the author of Meteor Storm, Tsunami Storm, and Solar Weapon, technothrillers featuring new technologies and ancient history. Capps tries to illustrate the ways technologies we currently have could be used and he mixes these new technologies with his fascination with ancient history and alternative Archaeology. For Capps mixing the new and uncharted with the old is an exciting and illuminating undertaking.
As a former electrical and mechanical engineer, Capps draws upon his experience to create much of the technology in his novels. He has a keen interest in emerging energy sciences and in his quest for knowledge on this new technology, Capps developed the control system for an over-unity electrical generator and witnessed first-hand the capabilities of such developing technologies, "The day I made the measurements on a machine that was producing eight times the electrical energy that it was consuming was a life-altering experience. I saw for myself what could actually be done, even though it was against all of my electrical training. Since then I have questioned everything that is considered conventional knowledge and found it terribly lacking. We actually live in a world that functions at a very different level from what we perceive."
Capps uses this new understanding of the greater possibilities for science and technology in his sci-fi thrillers. Some of the writers who inspired Capps are Michael Baigent, Dr. Eben Alexander (Proof of Heaven & A Map of Heaven), and David Baldacci. Capps has attended dozens of webinars through Writers Digest to work on perfecting his writing craft. Capps’ goal as a writer is to fashion an entertaining story and then to weave generally unknown facts into that story leaving the reader wondering just what is real and what isn't. If he can entertain a reader and make that reader question the reality around them, then he considers his efforts a success.

63,000 years ago, an ancient civilization existed far advanced over our own, but it was destroyed by a natural cataclysm. Now that same cataclysm is about to strike our modern world…
When Carl stumbles upon an unknown robot’s head, he manages with some effort to get it working. From the robot, Carl learns that it was created by an ancient civilization 63,000 years ago in northern India. The robot reports though, that the culture was destroyed by a meteor storm that killed all, but a thousand people planet wide.
When Carl learns that Earth is entering the same place in the galaxy where the meteor field exists, he warns people on TV, but finds himself ridiculed and ignored. To protect the world, Carl works to find out more about the ancient civilization and how to prevent a repeat of history.
To do this, Carl travels to a secret cave where the ancient technology is stored and here Carl meets a fully functioning robot from the ancient civilization. Now Carl must do everything in his power to preserve as many lives and as much of the current civilization as possible to avoid full scale destruction…
The US has launched secret weapons of mass destruction on other countries. And awaits what might be cataclysmic retaliation…
China is devastated by an 8.0M earthquake that leaves 70,000 people dead with hundreds of thousands injured and untold property destroyed. The Chinese government soon learns that it was no natural disaster, but rather an orchestrated attack by the American government using their High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) weapon. China ceases foreign relations with America and creates their own version of the weapon in retaliation. They plan to attack the US by sending a submarine with mini nuke mines to create a massive rupture of the Cascadia Subduction Zone.
But what neither China nor the US knows is that the attack on China was an unauthorized assault perpetrated by a US Navy Vice Admiral. Because of his arrogance and pride, more innocent people may have to pay with their lives.
One of the many coastal towns in peril is Dolphin Beach, Oregon. The new mayor Willa McBride tries to protect her townspeople while her sister, the Senator Elizabeth Bechtel, tries to uncover who engineered the attack on China. What is unclear is whether the Senator’s goal is aimed toward the greater good or for her own political gain.
To protect the US coast, the government sends out the submarine USS Massachusetts to locate and destroy the Chinese sub. Now it seems the only protection for the American coast is one US submarine and its heroic crew against a truly catastrophic event…
A secret group of elite people has broken away from our civilization and now demand the entire world bow to their power.
If every nation on Earth doesn't surrender total control to that elitist group, a Coronal Mass Ejection will be triggered on the sun, creating an Extinction Level Event that will incinerate the surface of the planet.
FBI agent Jake Hunter and NSA agent Honika Badger scramble through a maze of clues and evidence, desperately trying to discover who is behind this threat, and figure out how they can be stopped, as the resolve of the elite group is terrifyingly demonstrated.
