Fugitive From Asteron

My new novel, Fugitive From Asteron, will be published in January 2016. This is a science-fiction adventure story for young adults . . . and for the forever young.

Here's the description of this liberty-themed novel of high-adventure, first love, and unyielding courage:

In a grim world of tyranny, one man struggles to defy the norms. In a place where life is cheap, he prizes his. Where work is drudgery, he gets the one job he wants. Where passion is extinct, he loves a beautiful woman. Then he loses everything.

Fugitive From Asteron

Arial is an ace pilot who is imprisoned for sedition by Feran, the brutal ruler of Planet Asteron. The young rebel is pushed to desperation when he’s sentenced to undergo an unbearable punishment.
Feran is about to embark on a vital mission that is shrouded in the highest secrecy. But in a death-defying escape, Arial steals his ruler’s spacecraft, foiling his plans. The ship takes the fugitive on Feran’s pre-programmed course, with a mysterious cargo aboard.
Arial’s life is about to change forever—and with it, the fate of two planets.
During the stormy events that seize his life, Arial is drawn to two women. Reevah is the proud Asteronian whose strong will sets her apart in a society where all must obey. She lives for her stolen moments with Arial. But will her love for him seal her doom?
Kristin is the high-spirited woman of another world who falls in love with the handsome stranger who lands on her planet. But will she discover the secret of his past that will make him her mortal enemy?
Fugitive From Asteron takes you on a journey to two opposite worlds on the brink of a collision. It’s a tale of exotic adventure, of first love, of grit and courage, of harrowing danger, and of a shocking mystery unfolding. At heart, it’s the story of a young man’s struggle to heal the wounds of a brutal past, to learn what makes human existence possible, and to claim his own life.
Stay tuned for more details as the January 2016 publication date approaches!

A Dream of Daring, Synopsis:

In the South before the Civil War, one man’s radical ideas and breakthrough invention threaten the townspeople’s privileged way of life, based on slavery and power.

Tom Edmunton, the science-minded son of a cotton planter, has designed the precursor of the tractor in antebellum Louisiana. He foresees a new age of mechanized farming that will empty the fields of men and replace the South’s slavery system. But the planters of his town don’t like his big ideas about changing their world or the intensity with which he’s pursuing them. As Tom hears the call of the new age, he also feels the pull of two women. Rachel, a senator’s daughter, loves him, but will she break with her family to stand by his side if the town rebukes him? Solo, a rebellious mulatto slave, despises Tom, along with every other master. Rachel is free, but is her spirit chained? Solo is chained, but is her spirit free? Tensions between Tom and the planters peak, and the tractor is stolen. “Then a shocking murder sets into motion inextricably linked events and revelations that will change life as they know it for Tom, Rachel, and Solo” (Booklist).

Murder, forbidden love, and the bitter clash of two ages unfold in this gripping mystery set during the tumultuous lead-up to the Civil War. A Dream of Daring is a haunting tale of the Old South, with its lush fields of white-gold cotton, its majestic plantations, its elegant gentry, and its embattled slaves. The novel delves deeply into the conflicts of the period that still plague the world today—the clash between progress and control, between freedom and servitude, between the limitless reach of the human spirit and the forces that work to suppress it— giving the story a relevance and immediacy in our own time.
