Behind The Book


It’s coming! PAX Book 2: Third Sight!!! Just had some updates to my site in preparation for the release. Here’s my latest “Behind the Book” segment from my Readers page:

High in the Andes there is a place both strange and unnatural. Lines, some perfectly straight, others in geometric shapes, are carved into the earth like an abandoned airfield. Peruvian natives tell tales of interstellar astronauts responsible for what are now known as the Nazca lines. This “ancient spaceport” is only one of numerous otherworldly mysteries and artifacts in the region that can easily lead the imagination to…..what if? What if there were ancient astronauts? What if they had at one point left Earth….and left behind their supernatural secrets?

What if some of those artifacts held the power to control natural forces on our planet? What if men bent on destruction were to seek out these artifacts to wield them for evil purposes?

What if someone found them and had no idea what was in their possession?

In Third Sight, anthropologist Nina Phillips finds such stones and what she hoped would make her career suddenly could mean her death, and the only man who can save her is the man who broke her heart. The PAX League saved Riley Tremaine’s life, but now he’s a walking, talking anti-terrorist tool with a deadly power to foresee the hand of evil before it strikes. And only the combination of Riley’s dark visions and Nina’s knowledge of the ancient codes she had no idea were real can stop a madman.

The artifacts in Third Sight are based on the Ica Stones of Peru, a cache of mysterious stones of questionable origin–perhaps left behind by alien astronauts, the same interstellar visitors who once used the Nazca lines as a spaceport. Hmmm….. What do you think?

I don’t know. But in the world of the PAX League……..anything is possible!:mrgreen:

You can read an excerpt from Third Sight here!

    How do you think up these things. Wonderful.

  2. Eve says:

    I remember reading about the Ica Stones in Anthropolgy class. Now I’m even more interested in the book. Can’t wait until it comes out.

  3. MartyK says:

    I love when something starts those ‘what ifs’ churning. Great idea!:thumbsup:

  4. Eve says:

    Oh, just as I clicked I noticed your little “Poem” on the side. What memories that brought back to me – my father used to say the same poem, except the lines on his were “I won’t holler, I won’t cry, I’m just glad that cows don’t fly”. Thank you for the (misty) smile.

  5. Tori says:

    Woohoo!!!! I’m looking forward to this so much!!!

  9. ValMarie says:

    I love reading about the Ica stones and the Nazca lines. I have my own theories about them ;-), but I’m always happy to read what other people use in their stories. *happysigh*

  10. Cynthia says:

    Cool! Sounds great! I remember seeing a TV show about lines/images they’ve seen in the desert that date back to the Icans. Very interesting stuff.

  11. Sandy J says:

    This is so great! Just what I love to read! I can’t wait! I will start ‘The Beast Within’ tonight so I can be ready when ‘Third Sight’ comes out! :bananadance:

  12. Danica says:

  17. TeresaH says:

    Terrific! I’m looking forward to reading this book!

  18. ruby55 says:

    Yes, this definitely sounds fascinating. I try to watch any program on archaeology. However, though I know about the Nazca drawings, I’ve never previously heard of the Ica stones. Must read up more on those.

    I haven’t read the excerpt yet because I should get to bed. My days are topsy-turvy again especially since I keep falling asleep as soon as I sit down, especially at the ‘puter. Still don’t know where I’ll be moving to come Oct. 31. Argh.

  19. Toni Lea Andrews says:

    GREAT excerpt. Can’t wait. Gotta go – building an Ark…
