on Tour February 1 – March 31, 2018

Synopsis:

Death Theory by John D. Mimms

Mankind’s greatest fear is also its greatest obsession. What awaits when we shuffle off the mortal coil of this world? We all have our beliefs based on faith or science, but both struggle to provide a tangible answer. Perhaps it is possible to prove the existence of the soul, to prove it goes on after death. Following the violent death of his parents, Jeff Granger seeks reassurance that they have moved on. After recording what he believes to be his mother’s voice at the site of the accident, Jeff’s obsession throws him into paranormal research. Realizing that most people are doing it just for fun, Jeff forms his own group. He is joined by Debbie Gillerson, a school teacher; Aaron Presley, a mortician; and Michael Pacheco, a grocery store manager. Even though they are all investigating the paranormal for very different reasons, they are all trying to fill an emptiness in their lives. The deeper they probe paranormal theory, the darker their results. The only way to truly test the ‘Death Theory’, as theorized by Aaron, is to monitor a person’s energy at the moment of death. Horrified by the immoral and unethical application, the group dismisses the theory. A darkness seems to follow their investigations and the police become involved. A former colleague of Jeff’s, a self-proclaimed demonologist, believes a demonic force is attached to the group. The police are not so sure. Evil comes in many forms as the small group is about to discover.

Read an excerpt:

“I had some ideas I wanted to run by you tonight,” Elvis said, muting the TV after the Cardinals made the final out to secure a 3-1 victory.

“Shoot,” Jeff said.

“Well, the paranormal is a very broad field,” Elvis began. “The answers we seek span several different scientific disciplines.”

“I would say you are right,” Jeff said, taking another swig of beer.

“I guess the Grand Poohbah of questions is what happens when we die. That is to say, is there a soul continuing on and, if so, what is it?”

Jeff nodded. “Most people believe that ghosts or souls are a form of energy.”

“Exactly!” Elvis said. “I have been doing some research on the subject. I came across something most people in paranormal research seem to overlook … it is a fundamental of every high school and college science class.”

“What?”

“Are you familiar with the Law of the Conservation of Energy, otherwise known as the Law of Thermodynamics?”

This subject was familiar to Jeff, and he rattled off the textbook definition, “The Law of Conservation of Energy is an empirical law of physics. It states the total amount of energy in an isolated system remains constant over time or is conserved over time. A consequence of this law is that energy can neither be created nor destroyed: it can only be transformed from one state to another. The only thing that can happen to energy in a closed system is it can change form.”

“K-e-e-rect!” Elvis said with a wink, “couldn’t have said it better myself!”

“So, what does it have to do with ghosts?” Jeff asked.

“Isn’t it obvious?” Elvis asked, furrowing his brow.

Jeff stared at him blankly.

“Okay,” Elvis said, a little disappointed. “The human body has almost every form of energy going on inside, right?”

Jeff nodded.

“Electrical, chemical, thermal, kinetic…all are present in the body our whole lives.”

Elvis leaned forward and whispered, “So, what happens to this energy when we die?”

Author Bio:

John D. Mimms

John D. Mimms is a business owner, paranormal researcher and author. John served as the Technical Director for a TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) family paranormal research group in Central Arkansas. During his four-year tenure with the organization, he helped supervise over 100 investigations and wrote more than sixteen technical articles. Paul Bradford, of Ghost Hunters International fame, read one of John’s articles titled A Christmas Carol Debunked live on the air of the Parazona Radio program on Christmas Day 2009. John also wrote a definitive technical/training manual, which is a comprehensive guide on equipment usage, investigation protocol and scientific theory for paranormal research.

In 2009 John decided to couple his knowledge of paranormal phenomena with his lifelong love of literary fiction. John’s first published work, The Tesla Gate, is the first installment of a three-part, heart-wrenching, sci-fi/paranormal drama.

Book 1 of this unique, ground-breaking story released July 2014 through Open Road Media. In January 2016, Open Road Media released The Tesla Gate Book 2: The Myriad Resistance. Book 3: The Eye of Madness is slated for release September 27, 2016. Though fictional, the trilogy is based on scientific, paranormal theory.

Publishers Weekly declared about The Tesla Gate in the March 3, 2014 issue “…touching sci-fi story that takes the reader on an unlikely road-trip adventure…a fast read with some entertaining ideas and a real emotional core in the relationship between father and son.”

The Examiner proclaimed in June 2014: “Entertaining as well as poignant, this book is extremely imaginative in its basic premise as well as the many colorful and emotionally compelling events that take place.”

John resides and writes on a mountaintop in central Arkansas with his wife and two sons.
