The year is 2320. Andi Lloyd is content with her life as the assistant to her adoptive father, a starship doctor, but her secure world turns upside down when she begins uncovering secrets from her past.

With mutiny breaking out on the ship, and two factions desperate for a valuable secret she holds, she must race to help her father and herself before time runs out.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I am a huge fan of Star Trek and often wished there were something similar for Christian teens and young adults. A dream about a doctor's daughter working on a starship prompted the idea for this series, and I'm currently publishing the seventh book. My hope is that young adults who love sci-fi can enjoy some good, clean space travel stories with good values, and maybe love the characters as much as I do.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main character, Andi, and her father, Doctor Lloyd, were inspired by a dream I had and the rest of the characters just flowed naturally as I began to write. I like stories with complex family situations, which led to the adoption and backstory and secret family members of the protagonist, and then I wanted to surround her with other family-like friends and role models on the ship where she lives. I fell in love with the characters enough to spend the past ten years writing them, and I still love them enough to keep going!
