EVERYONE has wondered about it.
MOST believe it possible.
SOME even wish for it.
…but NO ONE expected this!
“A fascinating story that cleverly weaves ‘Stargate’ with ‘Ancient Aliens’, and just enough ‘The Da Vinci Code’ to leave you praying we never make contact.”
An unusual phenomenon sends one of Saturn’s moons, Hyperion, hurtling toward Earth. For months, humankind faces the fear of possible extinction until Hyperion emerges from behind Jupiter on a course for the Sun instead.
While the world celebrates, an alien species arrives with a dire warning; Earth is not out of danger. Communicating through persons they abducted decades ago, the aliens offer advanced knowledge that could not only save humanity but also bring an end to many other global issues.
As world leaders consider whether the aliens should be trusted, and wonder how the aliens’ arrival could affect their own agendas, archaeologists uncover a secret in Egypt. An ancient secret, guarded for thousands of years, that suggests the aliens had visited long before recent times. Even as far back as mankind’s first civilization, raising questions about who the extraterrestrials might really be and what their true intentions are.
This story takes us on a journey of a “What if we’re not alone?” using actual history, beliefs, and connecting many common dots across various ancient mythologies and religions to produce one possible and thought-provoking scenario.
A scenario that is completely, and entirely, fiction.
…OR IS IT?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I am an avid reader and love the science and speculative fiction genres. Also, I've wanted to be a writer since I was eight years old. So, after years of not finding certain stories I've always wanted to read, I figured I may as well start writing them myself!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I knew when I started this book I would need a diverse mix of character personalities. More than one of the main characters needed to be strong women, and another female character needed to begin weak but then grow stronger. After that, I also needed multiple types ranging from humorous to annoying, and from panicked to calm & stoic, regardless of their genders. In the end, I wasn't searching for specific characters, per se, but specific personalities so as to present the readers with a wide range of opinions and points of view regarding the major events which occur in the story.
As the elastic walls of the ship snapped back into place, an African American man in his late twenties stepped out onto the pier. He wore a red thermal shirt under old-fashioned overalls. He put on his straw hat while shielding his eyes from the blinding light of the Sun, then stood in awe at what he saw around him. A world progressed by more than half a century since he had last seen it, a place unrecognizable to him, while thousands of people gawked at him.
On the ship behind him, from the same area and in the same manner, another figure slid through the wall. This time it was a man with blond hair in his mid-twenties and dressed in the uniform of a 1950s Air Force pilot. As soon as he was out of the ship, he dropped to the ground, sobbing, and kissed the slab of granite under him.
After the pilot, more persons exited the ship, one by one, until a total of twelve persons had set their feet on the Earth again that morning for the first time in seventy to eighty years. In total, including the man in the tuxedo, there were nine men and three women, each of them confused by the unfamiliar place they had arrived to, and alarmed by the size of the crowd gathered around them. The island’s new arrivals were from diverse walks of life and backgrounds. From a poor farmer to a former U.S. Senator, from a man wearing a bolo tie and cowboy hat to a middle-aged, female librarian. Yet all of them wore styles of clothing that hadn’t been exactly flying off the stores’ shelves since the late 1940s to early 1950s.
