About the Author
Julie Achterhoff has lived all over the place throughout her life. She is the mom of five awesome kids.
She started writing scary stuff when she was young, and kept a few teachers up at night with her stories. A play called "Angel in the House" was her first major effort. Then she wrote a novella, "Native Vengeance," which was published by "Demon Minds for their 2008 Halloween Edition." Her first full novel, "Quantum Earth," was published by All Things That Matter Press in 2009, and "Deadly Lucidity" followed in February 2010. Then she decided to get the rights back from her publisher so she could self-publish, which has worked out great. "Earthwalker" was the first book she self-published, followed by her previous novels.
Julie lives in California with her son, Sage (now in college!), but sneaks out every night to snuggle with her one and only, Ron.

It is business more or less as usual for Hawk, even though he wants to escape more and more with pure passion for his new love, Shauna. It is Shauna, the heroine who is empowered both by love and the strengthening of her intuition that ultimately unites her teammates in this metaphysical tale of good vs. evil.
Most of us feel at a loss to do anything significant to affect the outcome. We will do the little things we can: recycle, conserve, contribute financially, etc. But we're told repeatedly: It's too late, or at least that, if things are to turn around, it will take much more dramatic steps than we're currently taking. So who can we trust for the answers? Who can steer us in the right direction? Are the scientists asking the right questions; or is this thing too big for their slow moving methods? Maybe such inquiries are better put to our religious leaders.
In Julie Achterhoff's novel, Quantum Earth we find ourselves--along with the rest of the world involved in the aforementioned predicament--in the hands of a team of scientists who look through the lens of the metaphysical. Thinking outside of the box is what these folks do for a living. Many questions are raised, most of them unorthodox, and yet sincere. Extreme possibilities are considered; it's only natural in a game where there is nothing to lose. An example: do people, who are ready to leave this world, unconsciously will their own demise, along with others who have a similar desire?
Well, you can only find out by reading Quantum Earth for yourself. Is the study of metaphysics science, spirituality, or philosophy? You be the judge. And while you're at it, give some thought to the question; who do you want at the helm in these perilous waters? Who will you trust for answers, considering the problems and the very uncertain future of our world?
Dr. Mel Hawkins (Hawk) and Shauna Troy have formed a group that will study the sudden increase of natural disasters, and as 2012 approaches with the predictions that earth will no longer be, the team find themselves running out of time. Hawk and the whole team have agreed that there is the possibility that people are bringing the destruction on themselves with their thoughts and wishes. With this possibility, the team relies on its member Noah Meade, who is a medium, to contact some of those killed in these mass destructions. During one of the group sessions with victims of a major flooding, Noah is working through his "crossed over being" Jackson. As the team listen to messages from people on the other side, Jackson is suddenly taken over by a voice that isn't earthly. This voice blames humans for the conditions of earth. It is the belief of the team that this voice may be from an alien.
Discovering that there may be a chance of contacting aliens that have passed on, Hawk and Shauna decide to have Noah try to contact them to see if they can shed light on what might be done to stop earth from being destroyed. Fortunately for them, Noah is able to get through, but unfortunately for them and all of earth they are told that earth is in the process of cleansing itself and to do this, humans must be destroyed so it can start over again.... Just as it did with the destruction of the dinosaurs. These aliens feel that no animal is a plague to the earth like the humans are. So, with the increase in earthquakes, floods, and even medical epidemics, the task before this small group of 7 is to do whatever they can to stop the destruction of the world?
Quantum Earth took me on quite a ride. If you listen to the predictions and theories for the year 2012 you will hear: there will be increases in earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes, left will be right and right will be left, just to name a few. Are we really creating these changes with our own minds? I think I've read somewhere that "thoughts attract" so only think good thoughts. I've for one have decided that, just in case this is true, I'll think as many positive thoughts as possible.
