This is an alert for those of you who are waiting for an exciting new series of Young Adult novels. The Annie McDoogan stories focus on a young physics student who wants to apply innate powers of the brain to make the world a better place. Annie believes that extrasensory perception abilities are a natural part of everyone, and she sets about to prove it. As a result, her life is frequently in danger from skeptics who want to suppress her efforts.
I have just finished writing the first book, Annie McDoogan: Secret Visions. The title character is a lonely 15-year-old who fights a shark and drowns in the process. As she ascends toward the light, her recently murdered father appears to her and tells her to go back and make the world a better place. Annie recovers and decides to try and make the world a safer place by using telepathy. She teams up with two other high school sophomores, Ming Chang and Emir Polat, and they quickly bond as they face ridicule, opposition and violence from individuals who believe that they are practicing mind control. The action never stops as the trio are threatened, attacked and firebombed. Will they fail in their quest or receive support from a most unexpected source?
This is a fast-paced enjoyable book for readers age 13-113. I will post the publication date when I have it.
