About the author

 It's said I was launched into space from birth and I haven't been back to Earth since.

There might be some truth in that.

As a reader I love science fiction with great plots, interesting characters, exotic locales, all accompanied by a sense of wonder with optimistic endings. As a writer, I love the same.

Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture.

It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.

"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."

A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.

A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time.

A Wrinkle in Time is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.

The Joys of Love

 A new life in Alaska, a massive aurora, spaceship hidden under the ice and snow…
A haunted lodge and lurking aliens?
An ominous singing voice only Zach and Sasha can hear...

Hawk and Zach Callahan are on the adventure of a lifetime, one that could affect everyone on Earth.

Welcome to Salmon Run, Alaska! A place of wild animals, wild lands, and wild inhabitants...oh, and native legends come alive and an interplanetary alien conflict at their backdoor. A fun contemporary science fiction series for teens, young adults, and adults of all ages.

This collection of the first three Salmon Run books follows the Callahans, the eccentric denizens of the small Alaska town of Salmon Run, and the aliens hidden nearby as their lives become intricately entangled.

***

Night of the Aurora (Salmon Run - Book 1)

A new life in Alaska.

A massive aurora.

A spaceship hidden under the ice and snow.

For Hawk and Zach Callahan, getting to the small town of Salmon Run presents the first challenge. From the moment they arrive the locals freely share their opinions. While still in Cordova an old prospector declares the two cheechakos unprepared for the realities of an Alaskan winter and goes about fixing it. A failed sled-dog takes an unwelcome liking to Hawk, giving rise to an old phobia. The young native Sasha attaches herself to Zach, much to his disgust. They think they have it made when they board the unique train that will take them through a dark roadless wilderness to their new home.

The same night a massive display of the Aurora Borealis lights up the sky.

Resulting in the Solar Express train powering down all by itself, stranding its passengers.

Only, the energetic aurora affected something else out in the wilderness.

***

Alien Winter (Salmon Run - Book 2)

A haunted lodge and lurking aliens?

The Salmon Run Lodge needs a good cleaning. Hard to accomplish with the plumbing and power constantly going out. Then there are the strange unexplained noises. When Zack heads for school for the first time he discovers that the local kids are as crazy as the other inhabitants of Salmon Run.

Problems abound for the local aliens, as well. Nanuk wants to continue his scientific human observations. Hard to do when the Admiral insists he take along a new arrival to the Earth mission. The only one doing well is Yenni, who heads out with new equipment to use in his studies.

How can alien and human worlds not collide?

***

The Singing Lakes (Salmon Run - Book 3)

An ominous singing voice only Zach and Sasha can hear...

First came the blizzard. Then the earthquake hit. Even as the people of Salmon Run rally to pick up the pieces, Zach and Sasha start hearing a voice singing across the radio. Singing no one else hears.

What do the lyrics in the beautiful voice mean? Some sound downright apocalyptic, and growing darker all the time. They need answers, and fast. They know the hidden aliens must be involved in some way, but how do you find aliens who want to remain hidden?

And what does all this have to do with Lake Iliamna?

The electrifying #1 New York Times bestselling debut novel from YouTube sensation Joey Graceffa dares to ask the question: What would you do in order to survive if your very existence were illegal?

Rowan is a second child in a world where population control measures make her an outlaw, marked for death. She can never go to school, make friends, or get the eye implants that will mark her as a true member of Eden.

Outside of Eden, Earth is poisoned and dead. All animals and most plants have been destroyed by a man-made catastrophe. Long ago, the brilliant scientist Aaron Al-Baz saved a pocket of civilization by designing the EcoPanopticon, a massive computer program that hijacked all global technology and put it to use preserving the last vestiges of mankind. Humans will wait for thousands of years in Eden until the EcoPan heals the world.

As an illegal second child, Rowan has been hidden away from the ruthless Center government in her family’s compound for sixteen years. Now, desperate to see the world, she recklessly escapes for what she swears will be only one night of adventure. Though she finds an exotic world, and even a friend, the night leads to tragedy. Soon Rowan becomes a renegade on the run.

An instant #1 New York Times bestseller, Children of Eden is a thrilling and completely absorbing work from one of social media’s brightest young storytellers. Taking the genre of dystopian fiction far beyond where it has traveled before, viral sensation Joey Graceffa’s first novel introduces us to an empowering and endearing young protagonist and a world that contains as many perils as it does illuminating surprises, perfect for fans of the Divergent and Maze Runner series.
