About the Author

I've been a writer since before I could string letters into words, since I was a three-year-old handing my mother a pad of paper and a yellow pencil asking her to take down a tale that wouldn't quit in my toddler's head. I'm always asking, "What if?" And my imagination takes off from there, weaving possibilities into stories. I was ten when I saw my first undeniable UFOs, two red ovals zigzagging with intent one after the other through a clear night sky. A few years later, Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods opened my eyes to see that aliens came to Earth in ancient times. I believe they're still around, maybe more involved with us than we know. So why are we all supposed to scoff at the concept of aliens coming to our planet? Why don't we react with our natural human curiosity? What if the answer is, someone wants it that way? Here's an idea: Maybe people have been taught to ridicule those who say they've seen UFOs, taught by an organization that's very good at propagandizing, very good at securing their power in the world, very concerned about losing that power if people accepted the fact that aliens have been on Earth. I wrote Messenger of the Ancient Gods as a fun ride on the back of this premise, and I hope it transports you into the adventure of possibility.

More About the Author

These bios are usually written in third person, but I'd rather talk to you directly without the construct of an imaginary wall between us. Because I am "you," someone who wants to be transported into an adventure of possibility.

I don't ususally take the time to review anything but Messenger of the Ancient Gods got me! I started reading it as I waited for my car to be serviced. It pulled me in and had to finish it the same day - dinner was an hour late. Deborah Kinnon's highly evocative descriptions and breakneck speed action made reading this book like watching a movie. The dialogue was realistic and the heroine was complex and believable. I saw Julia Roberts as Gillian North. I highly recommend this imaginative book - be sure you set aside time to finish it - you won't be able to put it down!

What a great read. I kept thinking, I'll read until the end of this chapter. Then I couldn't stop. This page-turner is really well thought out and clearly explained. Kinnon explores both alien visitations and our modern day reactions to that information, especially why people who believe in alien visitation are routinely dismissed as being crazy. For those who believe, the author doesn't disappoint. The action is startling and feels real in all my senses. The plot has great twists and is very well researched. This book brings me to another place while I'm reading and thinking about it after.

I am particularly impressed with the lead character, Dr. Gillian North. She is so smart, takes no crap from anyone, thinks for herself and has a heart as well. I can't wait to hear more from this character!

This is an excellent story, original and fast-paced, rich with mind-blowing full-sensory images that pull you dead center into the action. The smart, courageous kick-ass protagonist, archeologist Gillian North, is driven to redeem her father's name by solving a 2,000-year-old puzzle involving Mayans and ancient aliens, while an extremist religious sect hunts her down, bent on stopping her at all costs. Throw in escalating stakes, good character development, and a twist at the end, and it's a must-read for fans of thrillers and sci-fi. I love it when an author weaves fact with the fiction, and Deborah Kinnon did an excellent job with this. The archeological sites are real, as I found by doing some research, and these and other details are so factual that you think, "Could this be true...?" I'm definitely looking forward to a sequel, and wouldn't be surprised to see this novel turned into a movie, with all of its stunning visuals!

This book pulled me in until the very end. Very well written, great imagery very interesting story-line. I could easily see this going into a series, and would most certainly read more from this author. Don't bother with the free sample, just buy the book, its well worth it! I like this authors "voice" it really kept me captivated until the very end. This will make a great summer read or if your looking to stay up late all night because you just can't put it down, I highly recommend this book.

Either Deborah Kinnon grew up with Latino rebels or really did her research thoroughly. Or both. Excellent job. It was like being there again.
