A single mother discovers that her daughter has disappeared without a trace. Was she to blame for her daughter's disappearance? Did she hold on too tight? What happens when you become the puppet, being pulled by everyone’s strings? Do you run away from the danger, or do you stand and fight? As she searches for the truth, her past and sanity collide. Can she take back control of her life, and find her daughter, before it's too late, or will she too, become a mindless drone? Follow Mia Black in this alternate reality, where things are not quite a mirror image of our world.
A Black Star is a supernova; an exploding star. Some people believe that when it dies, it disappears. Yet in reality it shines through the darkness…just like Mia Black.
Mia, like many women, has suffered from heartbreak, losing a spouse, dealing with being alone, and being a single parent, while balancing a career. But she has also suffered from tragedies, such as her daughter being kidnapped. When the rest of the world moved on, including the police, Mia never gave up hope. She always shines through the darkness. This book deals with mental health, love, loss, insecurities as well as growth, all combined on the backdrop of a super-science fiction series. In this alternate reality, she discovers that there are real-life consequences that she has never seen before.
This series is a love story: love between husband and wife, mother and child, brother and sister, and love for humanity. It follows the struggles of parents while educating children to be leaders, with the lore of comic books, and fantasy, all rolled up into a fantastic tale of hope.
Society talks about diversity but falls short on what that means and what that looks like. I am bringing a love for all things international. My characters are diverse based on my personal experiences and heritage. I am an American who has had the pleasure to understand, that people are all the same; we just have different experiences. I love the psyche and how it relates to the fundamental design of mankind, and thus, wanted to tell a story about great loss, love, and the undying spirit of humanity and overall HOPE and LOVE, on the backdrop of all things science fiction, PEOPLE becoming heroes and defying odds.
