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 will surely entice the reader with the realism of 'this could occur' and it provides characters who defy negativity and actually take action to save our Earth and the universe.
Journey amidst the givers, takers and doers in life. You will find the book well worth your time. Wonderfully written.
Monica M. Brinkman,
Author of 'The Turn of the Karmic Wheel'
In light of the tsunami, earthquakes, volcano eruptions, and other natural catastrophes, many people are wondering if Armageddon is coming for real. Would 2012 be the end of the human race, as we know it? Most importantly, are we responsible for these natural disasters? If so, are we being destroyed so the earth can replenish itself? How can we survive the Earth changes? What can we do to appease it and save the human race? These are the questions the team is asking and seeking solutions to. They have their work cut out for them.
Quantum Earth is more than about metaphysics and climate changes. The author, Julie Achterhoff, fills it with romance, mystery, and fantasy. I read this book in one sitting, because I couldn't put it down. I wanted to know who is this mysterious Starborn one, the friend of the team, and the equally enigmatic benefactor who donated 2.5 million dollars. What does he have to gain from the team's work? Is he benevolent enough to help save the Earth and the human race or does he have an ulterior motive? More importantly, I wanted to know the scientists' findings and solutions.
Ms. Achterhoff does a great job of keeping the story intriguing all the way to the end. I love that there are actions in this book. She makes me care about her characters, especially the romantically involved leaders of the team: Hawk and Shauna. My jaw dropped when I found out about half of her identity.
I love this book and highly recommend it.

Julie Achterhoff has taken on this "possibility" in Quantum Earth. However, her characters are all involved in metaphysics and their exploration of potential reasons or solutions spans across the entire spectrum that you might want to consider!
The book opens in the midst of a tsunami...one of the methods by which the earth might some day disappear. Of course, this has occurred once in Biblical history. At that time, however, a great ark was built and some part of the world's humans and animals were saved. Today, as more and more damage is done to the planet, those studying the matter believe that earth just might be totally destroyed.
Dr. Mel Hawkins (Hawk) and his head assistant Shauna Troy are the primary characters, with six other team members. All have some type of "gift" such as communicating with the dead, that is being used as part of the exploration as to whether we, ourselves, are actually causing the various problems! Or, in more technical terms, "that the human consciousness has the capability not only to create its own reality, but on a grander scale to induce horrific natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and hurricanes...and then attempt to understand the `why' of the matter." (p. 11)
An interesting idea. I think most of us would have immediately thought about our overuse or destruction of too many of our natural resources, etc. Instead, this group's hypothesis is that it is the emotions or thoughts of those involved or affected by disaster. For instance, if you lived in the location where the tsunami came... then this team would come to interview those involved--including those that died due to the disaster, in order to research and prove their hypothesis.
I enjoyed the actual activities involved in the research conducted with the dead, but I felt that the overall scope of "possibilities" was too broad to be effective and I didn't feel the tension I would expect for a group trying to cope with the earth ending in a very short time.
On the other hand, I did enjoy the interaction and romantic involvement between Hawk and Shauna, after all, they still had some time to enjoy each other, right?
If you are into metaphysics and want to explore the hypothesis that we, as individuals, may actually affect the planet's resources--water, earth, weather, in strange ways, then you will want to check out Quantum Earth by Julie Achterhoff. One man donated millions to their research and you will be surprised what happened to him!
