BROTHERS’ DEBUT SCIENCE THRILLER LAUNCH PARTY BENEFITS PA WOUNDED WARRIORS
SUDDEN ONSET is a novel that reconciles science and faith. Though the story is fictional, the
science is real, as one of the authors is a molecular biologist with the USDA.
Mira Wallace is an autistic microbiologist brought in by the U.S. Army to help mitigate a
mysterious deadly pathogen.
As she unravels the mystery of SONA (Sudden Onset Necrosis Agent), we learn about the

Tom Dardick, a resident of Enola, PA and his brother Chris Dardick, a resident of Charles Town,
WV, developed this novel over the past decade.
Author, entrepreneur, drummer, singer, and inter-personal communications consultant Tom
Dardick said: “This story grew from Chris’ observations about the complexity of living things.
“Chris noted that our society’s current paradigm about Life is insufficiently appreciative of the
magnitude and scope of its origin.
“Arguments about the topic, especially through a pure ‘science vs. faith’ lens, are often neither
scientific nor Biblical. We wanted to tell a story not to convince people one way or another, but
to help them be more reverent and open as they consider the topic of Creation.
“We decided to hold a fundraising concert in order to celebrate the book’s launch. As much of
the action in the book takes place at an Army base, what better place to do that than the U.S.
Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle?
“My new band Double Dog Dare was ecstatic at the opportunity to help PA Wounded Warriors
and will perform classics from the 60’s to today.”
