Marie Wishert, author of “Ignite” – What good is a finish line if you never experience the route along the way? That’s the question plaguing Ruby Carlson, an impulsive young woman chronicling her premature existential crisis. A runner through and through, Ruby spent her formative years sprinting toward the proverbial finish line of financial independence and the promise of the free-spirited woman she longed to become. But when an unexpected pregnancy results in her transition to the role of mother and provider, Ruby has to stifle her non-traditional self to play the role of a stable, Midwestern family wife. The years melt away, and on the outside, it appears Ruby is settled and happy. Yet behind the façade is a woman still clinging to that promise of true freedom. When confronted by a dire longing for the passion and dreams she shed to fortify her family’s way of life, what will she do to survive?
Beth Roose, author of “White House Code: Forest Guardian Chronicles” – When the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, clearly desperate times call for desperate measures! This is where King Arthur’s wizard advisor Merlin and his friend Morgan enter the picture. Merlin needs all of his attributes as a Bigfoot, shapeshifter and immortal to enlist the aid of his friend Morgan to bring the Planetary Protection System online as the star Betelgeuse in the Orion system faces an imminent supernova. Using clues found in the White House china patterns, Morgan must decipher the proper activation sequence by following the prompts that lead him to the pyramids at Giza in Egypt and Teotihuacan in Mexico as well as the Siberian Valley of Death Cauldrons. This is a race against the clock that must be won to prevent the extinction of humanity – and the clock is ticking faster every second!
