Coming in 2019!
Junior Officer Zachary Dixon
“We were now about to penetrate a country at least two-thousand miles in width, on which the foot of civilized man had never trodden.”
-Meriwether Lewis, Journal of Lewis and Clark Expedition, 1804

Scheduled for publication in the fall of 2019, this book should be a page turner.
I’m not human, Case.” She smiled, I thought a little shyly.
She is delusional.
We can understand the skepticism of Case Smithson, a self-described non-famous science writer and radio talk show host, when confronted by this revelation from a beautiful young girl he’d met in a bar only an hour before. A girl whose personality seemed to change from moment to moment, from sultry Scandinavian seductiveness, to cool, analytical brilliance, to hurt little girl. And what about this story of hers — that she traveled all the way from Norway to Louisville, Kentucky, to see him when she’d never met or even spoken to him, and that a mysterious “they” were pursuing her? And what was her connection to Norwegian geneticist Lars Rasmussen, whom Case knew only slightly, having never met the man in person?
Join Case and his lovely mistress, Brianne Devries, MD, on a chase that spans a continent and ends in a perilous confrontation, as they attempt to solve the Chinese puzzle that they know only as IV57384, or Ivy.
Coming in early June.
