"Astonishingly imaginative and thoughtful...the book should be read both quickly and slowly - quickly in order to enjoy the rapid sledding of the plot and slowly to mull characters and ideas. Aegis Rising sets a festive narrative table and makes the reader eagerly anticipate a sequel." ~ Samuel F. Pickering, Professor Emeritus of English, University of Connecticut & Inspiration for Robin Williams' character in the Academy Award winning movie, Dead Poet's Society ~
"An extraordinary effort...all the more amazing given the author's age. I was especially gratified by the way she used the teen protagonists' close relationships as the backdrop against which the dramatic events in Aegis Rising unfolded, without having 'love interest' or other typical teen story devices hijack the underlying theme of the book. She's a real talent!" ~ Red Grammer - Grammy Nominated, Multi- Award Winning Songwriter & Producer ~
RECOMMENDED. A title like this is screaming for adaptation as a successful film... ~The US Review of Books~
THRILLING!...grips onto the reader and never lets go! ~Feathered Quill Book Reviews~
FIVE STARS. Unique and compelling. Delivers on every level..perhaps the best sci-fi adventure I have read all year." ~Kathryn Bennett, Readers' Favorite Reviews~
RIVETING! Takes you on an intriguing ride through mysterious forests and mist-covered mountains to corporate boardrooms and global schemes. Prepare to be swept away on a breathtaking journey!" ~Honore Gbedze, SAGE Foundation~

From the Author
Thank you for browsing the Aegis Rising page.
Aegis Rising tells the story of the survivors of an ancient civilization who live secretly in a hidden valley in northern Canada, awaiting the 'chosen ones' from their prophecy, and a mysterious corporation with a global reach led by a shadowy figure who has a dystopian vision for the planet. The two worlds are about to collide and five teenage friends find themselves cast into the middle of this devastating conflict.
Although categorized as a Young Adult novel, Aegis Rising seems to appeal to a broad age group. It is a classic good versus evil story with a modern twist to it. As one reader put it, "Aegis Rising is a unique and compelling novel that combines the youthful camaraderie of the Percy Jackson series with the relentless action of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt adventures and weaves it through a dystopian backdrop of the Hunger Games trilogy."
While it is an honor to be compared to such iconic authors, I have always imagined Aegis Rising to be a unique read for my readers. I am thrilled and thankful for the amazing response that the novel has received from readers across the globe. I am pleased to announce that book two, Aegis Incursion, is now available exclusively on Amazon.
I hope that you will find the intrigue and adventure in the world of Aegis well worth your time. I love to hear from my readers and always make time to respond personally.
