From the Back Cover

After a harrowing escape from the clutches of her father's right-hand man, Neave Alvarez wants nothing more than to spend time with the love of her life. But her father, the disgraced former Climate Secretary, turns up in China, not behind bars where he's supposed to be. More dangerous than ever, he demands she dump her fiancé, calling him a"subhuman clone."

Albedo Effect, Book 2 of The Shade Ring Trilogy, Neave faces threats from her cold-blooded father, along with one obstacle after another thrown in her path by an overheated Mother Nature. 

While trying to protect the love of her life, she's sucked into the escalating political upheaval over her father's plan to shield the Earth from the blistering sun. Mass protests spread like wildfire as world leaders lash out over who decides on a plan that impacts every nation around the globe.

A fast-paced novel set a hundred years in the future when oceans have risen fifteen feet and the temperature in Atlanta is 120 degrees.

Speculative Fiction, Climate Fiction, Action/Adventure and Romantic Suspense.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Connie worked for many years as a radio reporter and news anchor, with a couple of brief forays into TV news along the way.  Her experience as a journalist shows up in some of her novels.  She also dabbled in acting in college and community theater. She uses those experiences in some of her books as well.

Her novels are fast-paced stories featuring young women facing serious challenges set against the backdrop of some thorny issues. She writes time travel, magical realism, historical fiction and climate fiction - all with a dollop of romance.​ Social justice is a theme of many of her books.

She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke with a degree in Journalism and Creative Writing.
