Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an amazing thriller--one that had me looking at the world around me with a little suspicion, just in case the plot was based on fact." - Amazon Review, Mrs. G
"The Secrets was an up to date story of scientific intrigue. It kept me wanting to keep reading. As so many stories get far fetched, this story could possibly happen." - 
Amazon Review, Teri Swanson

From the Author

The Secret was the very first book I ever wrote and published. Although I've been writing bits and pieces of books for years, I'd never written a whole book from cover to cover before. It was hard--sometimes overwhelming--but overall SO MUCH FUN!

 I got the general idea for the story after hearing a news report about a form of eugenics being carried on today. According to the report, in some places elderly patients taken to the hospital were basically killed as they were allowed to become dehydrated. That really spotlighted the question for me of who has the right to decide when someone should die other than God.

The Secret took that idea and ran with it, my fingers following along on the keyboard as new ideas and plot twists happened along the way. Instead of pointing fingers at a group of "bad guys" in the story I went with a supernatural twist because, really, what is ultimately behind all evil? The Secret was written with the intent that it could be enjoyed by the whole family. Even though it touches on some very serious subjects it is simply written and not too graphic.

 Being my first book, it's not perfect. I'm always thankful to readers who point out typos or other issues that have been missed (even though the book was professionally edited). If you see a problem with the book or just have a comment, let me know! scinegue@gmail.com

 The following books in the series delve deeper into the eugenics and supernatural themes. I decided to put more focus on the supernatural themes after some of my teen readers expressed their love for that part of The Secret. Some parts get pretty "far out there", but I think overall they make for a fun, light read while still touching on some very real social subjects! Hope you'll enjoy the series too!  

If you enjoy books which push beyond normal day-to-day life and explode into the supernatural; books like the original Left Behind Series where people can and do become possessed and miracles happen in big ways, then The Scinegue Series might be what you're looking for!
