A Missing World War II Bomber… A Baffling Contagion… Widespread Famine … Nations at the Brink of War… An Apocalyptic Prophecy… Five Unlikely Heroes
On a bright July morning in 1948, a B-29 Superfortress flying a top-secret research mission over Nevada crashes into the calm waters of Lake Mead and sinks, remaining lost for half a century.
It has been nearly a year since five friends – Jag, Kody, Mariah, Tegan and Aari – mysteriously reappeared in a small town in Yukon several weeks after their small plane went down in Northern Canada. All were found unharmed but with no recollection of what happened to them after the accident.
A baffling contagion is spreading across the bread-basket of North America destroying vital crops. As this dark shadow marches across the globe, widespread famine and riots bring desperate nations to the brink of war.
These seemingly unrelated events set the stage for a battle between the forces of darkness and those destined to become the ‘bearers of light’. From ravaged fields in the Great Plains to clandestine installations around the world, the Aegis League must race against time to save humanity.

I write in the morning before breakfast. First, I review the scene(s) I wrote the previous day and make changes. (My work is never “finished” in one take; it always needs editing.) Then I sit at the computer and compose a new scene. I’m very focused during this creative time, which lasts for about an hour. Later in the day, I usually edit and/or promote my novels. I also go on Facebook, where I have a group and pages for each of my books. Twice a week, I blog about writing on my website’s “Blog” page.
Do you write with music or not?
I don’t write with music. In fact, I need complete quiet when I write. Before I begin, I remove the phone and close the door of the den. I get very angry with family members if they interrupt me during my creative time. But since I only write for about an hour each day, I’m not really much of a diva. (more…)
“Corsonia” the new YA paranormal book by Susan Berliner
Can two teenage girls save a town? When Loren Cofton and Tracie Martinez visit the remote hills of northeastern Nevada on a cross-country drive celebrating their high school graduation, the fun vacation quickly morphs into a perilous adventure.
After photographing an abandoned gold mine, Loren swipes a bottle of water from an eerily robotic man stocking bottles in the only occupied store of an otherwise deserted shopping center. The water’s effect on Loren leads the pair to investigate the strange little town of Corsonia—despite threats from the local sheriff. And when Loren and Tracie befriend a child named Boy 11, who tells them about his curious life and upcoming fate, the girls become even more determined to figure out what is going on.
As the relentless teens uncover a horrifying trail of evil, they put their own lives in dire jeopardy. Will the girls be able to rescue the people of Corsonia—or will Loren and Tracie become the town’s next victims?
