Action-packed science fiction from a refreshingly different perspective. The first book in a groundbreaking new series. David Decker is stunned. Driven by his Christian compassion, he has just rescued a marooned space alien, but the alien's mere existence threatens to shatter David's worldview. How can he reconcile the two? When David learns the truth, it will astound him. But David has other troubles. Shadowy government forces are desperately trying to capture the alien. In his quest to follow his convictions, David must battle enemies--seen and unseen--and travel to incredible places he's never imagined.

Read information about the authorI was born and raised in sunny Southern California as the youngest of four daughters. I climbed trees, shot arrows into the hillside, and rode bikes on the dirt trails, typical tomboy stuff. My father worked hard as a doctor while my mom took a break from being a nurse and stayed home to raise us. My parents were very supportive.
Grade school and junior high, however, were very difficult for me. My peers teased me daily because I had curly hair, a skinny body, and ducks (yes, ducks). I really wasn’t dumb, but in public school I felt ugly, stupid, and socially inept–can anyone relate?
High school was a welcomed change and I enjoyed the friends I met in band class. Trombone was my instrument. I wasn’t a great player, but I did have fun. I also enjoyed my art classes.
After graduating, I reached a crossroads. I could either ignore the faith of my childhood, or I could explore it, seeing if it would really stand up to the rigors of life.
Realizing the only thing holding me back from growing closer to God was myself, I decided to pursue Him in prayer, reading the whole Bible, and getting involved in church. My faith flourished.
Around this time, my dad and I attended ground school and we earned our private pilot’s licenses.
In college, I found myself torn between art and music. I chose art.
Art classes at Cal State Long Beach were intense. I honed my skills and learned a lot of complex processes. However, after graduating I couldn’t find a decent art-related job (I didn’t consider jobs illustrating pornographic material as “decent”). I struggled with my identity until God showed me that what I do is not who I am. My identity comes from my relationship with Him.
Through humorous circumstances, I landed a job as an art teacher in a private Christian school. Of course, I ended up teaching lots of other subjects as well. It was a great learning experience in many ways.
After several years, I decided I needed to look into a career that could support me better financially. So, I returned to flying. I earned my instrument rating, and then my commercial rating. Next on my list was a multi-engine rating, but then something happened.
I married David Rollins.
Okay, I’ll back up a little. I met David in a church home-group. Because we were both involved in a lot of church functions, we got to know each other quite well (our courtship is a humorous tale in itself).
After getting married, we eventually moved into a little house in Hawthorne. Three years later I gave birth to Rachel. I quit my job at the school so I could stay home to raise her.
When Rachel was six months old, I started to write my first real novel: Arana’s Child (which everyone told me was too long, so I separated it into three books which would later become Arana’s Visitor, Vashua’s Messenger and Blackwell’s Wrath). After I finished this first book, I thought it was so much fun that I wrote another and another…. After two more girls were added to the family, David took a job near Seattle Washington. I was happy to flee the smog basin of Los Angeles.
We joined a church and eased into our areas of service. I’ve enjoyed writing worship songs, leading worship with guitar on occasion, and lending out new book manuscripts to friends.
I am still writing and editing stories. My days are full with homeschooling my children, serving in my church and writing. God is good.
