North Korea. AI Apocalypse. Asteroid impacts. What do they all have in common? No, not Elon Musk. Young Moon! Book 1 in the Water Worlds sci-fi adventure series.

Growing up in North Korea, in the days before her Father destroyed the world, Young Moon was happy. At least she thought she was, but that was so long ago and she was so very young. Her Father would grow excited when he told her impossible tales of the Great Neighbor, China, with dozens of astron...

Kind words from a beta reader:
"As always, enraptured by how perfectly the threads of the stories are woven in this series -- just beautifully told through some of the best young adult characterizations I have read. I never want this series to end."

Won't you give "Gen" a try?

Gen was angry and she knew it. Angry about her overprotective parents, angry about the way she was teased about her height, and angry about the dirt and grime that infested every corner of Mars. But soon, she'd be on rotations. Too few went Outside on purpose anymore, just to shiver against the i...

Thanks to all who sent such great energy during the launch of Gen. I've received some great comments from readers so far, so thanks!

Gen is a fast-paced "hard science" scifi adventure with strong women characters and takes place on a Mars so familiar you'd think you'd lived there all your life.

Please let your geek friends (12 and up) know about Gen and the whole Water Worlds series, and thanks for supporting independent authors!

Happy National Handwriting Day! With the snow upon us here in the Eastern US, and power likely to go down, now is a good time to brush up on your handwriting! And so I give you a new blog post, Meg’s treatise on “Cursive Writing” from "Gen."

http://waterworlds.me/…/23_Happy_National_Handwriting_Day!.…

Tish and Meg dropped in that Fiveday evening after rotations. Meg brought several pencils and a stack of her own paper, too, to give Tish and me our first lesson in cursive writing. I would have tubed over to their place again, gladly, but they both sensed I was uncomfortable around Raf. While I app…

Dear friends and fans,

Thank you so much! To date, the WATER WORLDS science fiction adventure series as a whole has been downloaded nearly 25,000 times on Amazon and read over 250,000 times on Wattpad!

And now the adventure continues with book 4, GEN.

...

GEN is Harry Potter without the magic, but with hard science and strong, smart women characters. And Mars! It’s Hunger Games without the bows and arrows, but with graphene masks and syntel implants. It’s The Martian but for young adults and the young at heart and takes place in the year 2210 on a Mars so familiar you'd think you'd lived there all your life. And did I mention cannibals? If so, I’ve said too much.

GEN goes On Sale TODAY! Jan 22, 2016

And to celebrate, I’m making book 1, YOUNG MOON free for the Kindle (or the free Kindle app) on Amazon this weekend! If you like the series, please help me spread the word. Now would be a great time for fans of good scifi and adventure stories to check out the series.

YOUNG MOON is FREE Friday, Jan. 22 through Sunday Jan. 24, 2016
