I’m thrilled to announce the release of my first novel, Undermountain, a YA adventure novel with science fictiony elements. Though it’s targeted at teens, the book will appeal to anyone who likes a good story. Buy it now at the Kindle store.
Six teens and a grizzled old guide embark on a ten day expedition into the wilds of the Canadian Rockies. Some come for adventure. Some come to learn. Some come to escape the troubles of home.
For sixteen year old Danny Michaelson the hike is his first trip away from home without his parents …. Too bad his older sister had to tag along as a chaperone.
For Breyona Lewis the hike is an escape from a terrible memory—of an assault she tries to deny, even to herself.
But when Danny and Breyona encounter a creature out of legend—an enormous beast they immediately tag as “bigfoot”—the hike suddenly becomes a race for their lives.
Swept into a secret underground city and told they may never leave, the hikers find themselves in the middle of a war between the bigfeet and their rebellious servant race, the tangoga. In their deperate attempt to escape, Danny and Breyona uncover the terrible plans that both races have for Earth.
To escape, to survive, to save the Earth—Danny must fight. Breyona must surrender.
