Author Biography

I’m John Prather. I grew up in the Bluff City of Memphis, Tennessee on a diet of Bar-B-Q and southern values. In my late 20’s I moved to the City of Angels to try the adventure of acting and modeling and brought my southern values with me. Now, other than the lack of quality BBQ, Los Angeles feels like home.
I’m a writer, actor, and fitness model. The Nephilim Virus is my first novel.

If you like science fiction with non-stop heart-pounding action and suspense, The Nephilim Virus is for you. In this debut Christian thriller by John T. Prather, a small number of uninfected humans fight for their survival in a nightmarish post-apocalyptic world. Nick Reece wakes from a three-year coma to find that America, and the world, is no longer what it was. A blood-borne virus from biblical times has killed millions of people and turned some infected humans into superhuman, highly intelligent, vampire-like Nephilim, who want to rule a new empire; or the subhuman Anakim, who eat humans and apparently can’t be killed. Nick quickly joins forces with other courageous survivors and a talented dog, determined to take back their world if he can survive all the attempts to kill him. But the Nephilim have their own evil plans for Nick.

I really enjoyed reading The Nephilim Virus. Prather has created an exciting and engaging story that you won’t want to put down until you reach the last page. The narrative is descriptive and flowing. The characters are well-developed and add to the suspense. The medical jargon is minimal. There is a romantic element in Nick’s attraction to Dr. Faith Richards, a brilliant hematologist who is searching for a cure. Prather switches points of view between Nick and Faith, adding plot and psychological suspense to the mix. Courage in the face of overwhelming danger is the common theme. “Evil has never been limitless,” Faith tells Nick. “The world has always been given great men and women with the power to fight back.” Highly recommended.
