BOOK  I

THE FIREBORN CHRONICLES
Available in Trade Paperback  &  Author's Edition Ebook

Tell me about your novel."

The first book of THE FIREBORN CHRONICLES has been released in both eBook and trade paperback. 

It is a science fiction story that takes place in a future where The Universal Government has offered a solution to most planets biggest problem: criminal and nonproductive members of society. 

Each planet remains free to determine for themselves what constitutes an unacceptable faction.  Then The Universal Government will remove them, and employ them on the Hive Planet.

Workers of the Hive are addicted to a wonderful and all-encompassing drug that can only be earned by working, thus converting each planet's formerly unproductive and dangerous elements into a universal workforce that provides the ultimate interplanetary temp service across a truly universal web.

Since its creation, only one person has ever escaped the Hive Planet: A newborn, fully implanted with compu-link interface temple plates, but not yet introduced to the drug.  He now leads a Dark Ops unit for The Gov. on a mission to uncover a psionic ring of criminals who have inexplicably taken control of an important Government Ambassador. 

What they find will change the universe.

 

 FYI: In high school I remember reading an epic poem The People, Yes
by Carl Sandburg. It spoke of the resilience and power that resides within us. 

This is my favorite passage
:

THIS OLD ANVIL HAS SEEN MANY BROKEN HAMMERS...
TIME IS A GREAT TEACHER...
THE FIREBORN ARE AT HOME IN FLAME...
WHO CAN LIVE WITHOUT HOPE..
.

All of my characters are at home in flame, hence the title.  -excerpt from an interview by Ruth Pennebaker, producer of the new STATE OF TOMORROW website    
                                 http://www.stateoftomorrow.com/features/mary andrews.htm
 
Ruth asked for this interview as a follow up to my appearance on the sixth episode, DIABETES  and Obesity, of the PBS series STATE OF TOMORROW.

After earth's destruction, humans have scattered and spread across the universe. The peace is kept by a universal government.

Four rogue talents unite to become an invincible Government dark ops team--the Nemesis Team.

But an unknown planet has turned up; a planet ruled by Oracles whose agents may be usurping The Government and suddenly, nothing is what it seems.

Upon meeting the star-faring Roma and the inhabitants of the mysterious Oracle Planet, complications begin to  pile up from all directions;

Together the Fireborn are keepers of the peace, of the past, and of the future. Prophesy dictates they will save the Oracle Planet but how are these reluctant heroes and their uneasy allies expected to save a planet with an asteroid bearing down on it?

Follow the Nemesis Team as they struggle to unravel a reality not of their making.

KING JAMES BIBLE COLORING BOOK

I've finally started setting up my bible project. I'm looking for artists or groups of students to help illustrate. It's meant to be used as a Bible study guide for moms and their children, teachers and their students, or just anyone who might like to sit and contemplate the words.

 

The coloring pages are free to download for non-commercial purposes.  I've set the project up at http://bible-roject.deviantart.com/ because it is an artist community and might help me find more volunteers. Chapters are downloadable there.

 

Artists will be asked to respectfully render B&W illustrations from the unaltered text of the King James version of the Bible in any style of art. I did the first chapter of Genesis in doodle art style to make this point. I have plenty of chapters left and will try to accept all skill  levels. This is a labor of love.

 

Please check out the BIBLE-PROJECT deviant art site as well. Anyone interested in the project can contact me though this site or email me at author.Mary.Andrews@gmail.com .

KITTY CORNER... 

All work & no play.... C'mon, take a break. You know you need one. 

Please come back often, and when you do, feel free to play with my  mascot, Sparks.  He has a toy and food in the 'more' box below. 

You can feed him (by dragging out the can of cat food and double clicking on it.) Pet him and he will jump out of the basket to play with you. 
When you double click on the basket he will jump back into it. There is also a toy available under the MORE button with the cat food (also a drag and drop item).

(He excels in swat-ball and dreams of someday competing in the Olympics so your workout will be well appreciated).

THE 2012 CATHOLIC WRITER'S CONFERENCE .

HAS ENDED BUT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN NEXT YEAR.

The free online conference had a new format this year:
March 17-24 there were FORUMS open 24 hours a day.
March 23-31 there were scheduled one-hour moderated chats on a variety of topics as well as pitch sessions and prayer sessions.

Attendees do not have to be Catholic and there will be openings for next year's presenters. I doubt it's ever too early to check into it. AND, the site itself has some interesting resources as well.
