Jake White is your typical middle-aged father, who is just trying to get by and provide a better life for his family. In the span of a single night, his world is turned upside down by an alien snatch team bent on killing everyone he loves. After dealing with the snatch team, he is befriended by a benevolent, sentient alien scout ship and asked to help out with a small problem that unintentionally puts him in the awkward position of being either Earth’s savior - or the worst mass murderer in history.

Forced to seek help from an old Special Forces buddy, Marc Stack, the two set out to help Jake's newfound alien friend. Along the way, they discover mankind is but one of many sentient beings in the galaxy and that extraterrestrials with a galactic corporate agenda have been visiting Earth for thousands of years.

If discovering extraterrestrials have infested Earth was not enough of a shock, Jake notices that something strange is happening to his body...

Humble Beginnings is written in a style reminiscent of classic sci-fi and tells the story of a reluctant hero thrust into extraordinary circumstances that will determine Earth's future, but includes elements of a mystery action thriller. It explores the premise that extraterrestrials have been on Earth for a long time and are doing a lot more than just visiting – the question is why? What is so interesting about Earth that beings capable of interstellar travel would even bother with a comparatively "primitive" species which is constantly at war with itself.

The book offers a refreshingly different take on “extraterrestrials are the good guys and here only to help mankind with our journey to the stars.” Ask yourself - how would extraterrestrials behave if they were motivated by many of the same vices humans are susceptible to? Like any good mystery the foreshadowing is subtle, you may want to read it more than once.
