The Color of Houm: Book 1: Seeing Red Kindle Edition
The Nest corporation had always done good by the planet Houm and its moon, Kaydal. Nest had, after all, arrived during the darkest days of the remote planet's ecological disaster following the eruption of the Volcano Mount Triste. With the aid of the corporation, Houm's colonizers, the Vat people, were able to rebuild their strained society and the ravaged planet. Decades later, the residents of the system live in a symbiotic relationship with the corporation, allowing them mining rights of the planet's precious mineral, Houmite, in exchange for their continual aid.
After an accident in Kaydal's airspace resulting in the death of her elder sister, Veema Binnek feels the rest of her family begin to fall apart. Her mother, distant and unhelpful in the bleak times, barely seeks to comfort her. Her father, a ranking official in Corporate Security, refuses to speak of the accident, allowing his work to pull him away further. When Veema encounters a stranger seeming to tout a different truth about the deadly accident, she finds herself pulled into a scheme to hit the corporation and make the Vat people aware that all is not as peaceful and orderly as Nest wishes the locals to think.
As the reality of her and the Corporation's actions dawn upon her, Veema finds herself in a tug-of-war to turn things right again and return to her home and family once more.

About the Author
Self-Published Author, Blogger, Vlogger. K-5 Technology Teacher. Identity still held hostage by the experiences of working a deli counter.
In the 4th grade, I was nominated by my classmates as 'one most likely to become an author'. Since that time, I had found myself doing everything imaginable besides that until my English 1A Class in Community College taught me to love writing again. My first proper book, Mother of Mars, was released for reading eyes in 2017, and since then it's been nothing but progress.
