William Neven was born in Chicago in 1952 and – according to attending physicians – should have died there in 1992. In fact, he still carries a copy of his Do Not Resuscitate order, one issued for him during his three month stay in a nursing facility where he was diagnosed to be suffering from a terminal, liver condition.
A degreed journalist [Northern Ill. U., 1974], Neven has worked as a reporter on newspapers in Illinois, California and Florida. His gothic short story, "The OBE", is scheduled to appear in the next issue of My Legacy [Artemus, Pa.] literary magazine.
His massive trilogy, The Final Phase, was originally inspired in 1964 by the murder of his father. The last plot for the novel had been untouched for more than a decade, resurrected when Neven became aware of some new genetic information regarding modern humans and their ancestry. Subsequent research led him to form what he feels now to be a workable theory as to what had caused the physical transformation of Jesus Christ and what that has to do with not only ourselves but also both our humanoid and hominid ancestors.
