The Colony

Anya was a good citizen. She knew the rules of The Colony, and she followed them without question. Until an internship snagged her a spot on the first voyage back to Earth since her people had fled the dying world hundreds of years ago. Now Anya is beginning to question all she has been taught as she begins to see those close to her, including her father, for who they really are. As war brews between the survivors that were left behind on Earth and the priviledged who had the means to escape, will Anya remember her years of training and remain a good Citizen, or will she abandon all she has known for a boy she has only just met?

The Stairs to No Where

Max is just your average 6th grader living in an ordinary town where nothing ever happens. Until his science fair project sets off a chain of events, revealing that not only Max, but his world as he knows it is in danger. As Max looks for a way to stop the catastrophe that’s brewing, he stumbles across a mystery that’s bigger than anything he could have imagined.

Why are the plants acting funny around Max? Why is everything dying in his best friend’s greenhouse? What’s causing the trouble at the weather manufacturing plant? And most importantly, who is the mysterious Man in Red lurking in the shadows behind every strange event?

As Max searches for answers to these questions, he uncovers more than he bargained for and must come to terms with what he’s learned before it’s too late. Otherwise, there could be nothing left to save.
