Now available: Birth of the Resistance!

Hi everyone:

I’d like to announce the release of the first book in my new series, ‘The Psychic Invasion’. The novel is called ‘Birth of the Resistance’.

I’m very excited about this series. It’s a bit of a departure, genre-wise, from my usual books because it’s an interesting mixture of sci-fi and the paranormal. Also, instead of a single protagonist at the center of the story, this time there are two.

Twin brothers, Dylan and Devon Norris, are the focus of the series and I think that it’s going to be an exciting adventure with these guys in the lead.

Here is the blurb. I hope that you find it intriguing:

In the shadowy world of espionage, America has gained a great advantage over other countries because of a small, unknown agency simply called the Department. Completely off the grid, the Department employs a unique cadre of agents to run its covert operations: psychics.

Training for these rare and unique individuals begins as young as fourteen. It is strict, regimented…and successful. Once they graduate, the psychic spies begin taking their talents out into the field.

Untraceable and unseen, these young people have been used to ferret out state secrets from hostile governments. They’ve been able to extract evidence of high crimes from mob bosses. They have even been used to uncover traitorous acts by U.S. citizens. All safely and covertly.

The Department has had free rein to make its own agenda, choose its own targets and pass along its knowledge to other government agencies surreptitiously, keeping its existence a complete secret. It has been a remarkable success.
Until recently, that is. Because now its small group of young psychics is being killed off, one by one.

After a close friend is mysteriously killed, one of the Department’s few remaining telepaths, nineteen year old Dylan Norris, decides that he has no choice if he wants to survive; he has to run. Only by disappearing can he buy himself enough time to discover who is targeting people like him and try to neutralize the threat.

The problem is that the agency does not let go of its assets easily and, if Dylan leaves, he will find himself running not just from an unknown killer but from the Department as well.

However, Dylan has an ace up his sleeve; another psychic who remains unknown to the Department; his twin brother, Devon. Between the two of them, they will embark on a journey to discover the truth behind the savage attacks on telepaths, and the mysterious group who wants to wipe them out.
