FREE – The Truth Finder and The Visualizer

Alien Town Between Mountains


This weekend (19 and 20 October 2019) the ebooks, The Truth Finder and The Visualizer are free on Amazon Kindle.

These two books are stories of the Earth in the fifth millennium. The world has been decimated by war and the population has diminished, but out of the ashes, some humans have developed special powers. The Truth Finder can read minds and The Visualizer can change her form and that of her surroundings. Yet in these troubled times those with gifts are vulnerable to imprisonment and exploitation. These first two books in the series were originally intended for young adults, but are also enjoyed by everyone. The final book in the series is The Healer and should be published in 2020.
