Gaia’s Majesty-Mission Called: Women in Power by Roger B. Burt
Earth is entering a frightening and challenging era. Through fiction, Gaia’s Majesty-Mission Called-Women in Power explores the future as it might be. We cannot know where the empowerment of women may lead us. But the prospects of our future with their empowerment are intriguing to explore.
And so our fictional adventure begins. Our earth mother, Gaia, foresaw a definitive epoch when the survival of humankind and her beautiful blue planet would be at issue. That day is upon us. Earth is enveloped in environmental and social crises. Unless humankind serves as stewards for Earth and themselves the planet may be despoiled.
Gaia could not sit by and observe the destruction of her Earth and the clever beings she found intriguing. This is the story of the gifted population of mermaid women she reserved in the sea who are dedicated to safeguarding the future of humankind and Earth.
You used to adore me. You took my bounty gratefully and before my loving sight developed your skills as will a child in the sight of mother. You worshipped me and my fruitfulness. I tested you with adversity which made you strong. But in time you selfishly saw Earth’s bounty as your due. You now have a choice between stewardship or devastation.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Two major world processes are coming together.
First: We are in a period where social strife is escalating just when we are in a climate change crisis. We have not seen this crisis environment since just before World War I. That led to the two world wars and the great depression. We cannot predict where this current environment will lead but it may be a dire period and exploration of possibilities is inviting.
Second: We now appear to be reaching a cresting of the movement to empower women. At long last we are coming to the release of the potential of 50% of the world’s population. It is a continuing process but the subjugation of women appears to be ending. It is to be celebrated with diverse, talented and powerful women.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
This makes me chuckle. Early on I had to choose a central character wedded to an essential theme and I designed her. But then the other characters showed up demanding attention and place. Each of the women had specific character traits including determined, powerful Brigid, darling seductive and dangerous Luisa. And on an on. As the story blossomed, so did the characters.
Gaia’s Majesty-Mission Called: Women in Power
We Will Have Justice
The West Coast of Ireland
The woman’s flight across Ireland felt endless. Only her determination sustained her in escaping the men chasing her. On the edge of the seaside village of Gaelach she’d concealed her car behind a barn. From ditch to alley to doorway she ran, watching for anything or anyone behind her. Dogs barked from small whitewashed cottages. Soaked to the skin from the pelting rain, she thanked Gaia for the weather that helped hide her and surely slowed down the men pursuing her. The information in the waterproof package she carried held the key to the fate of one of the world’s largest trading conglomerates.
The small shop, located on a side road, had a “Closed” sign in the window. She paused, appreciating the welcoming roar of the angry ocean nearby. She listened for hints of danger, then knocked. Inside, an old woman held her waterproof packet as she shed her sodden clothes, leaving her naked except for an arm holster holding a Gerber combat knife. She tied her long wet hair into a knot, and the old woman strapped the packet tight to her back. Once outside the back door, she melted into the sheets of rain and raced for the sea.
Just yards away from the waves, the men hunting her closed in. One man was upon her as she pitched herself into the waves. She took him down with her, driving her knife deep into his side.
A strong swimmer, she dove deep. Her strokes strengthened as webbing spread between her fingers and a fish tail blossomed behind her. Crisp chirps guided her to a series of waterworn pillars far under the sea. She was joined by another woman who swam next to her. They exchanged high-pitched greetings, but her focus was on getting her package to the ultimate security of the Tethys.
As they passed through the pillars, the blackness of the ocean dissolved and a glorious city, shimmering in a soft light, unfolded in front of them. All around were plants and marine animals glowing in rich hues. It was no longer nighttime along the Irish coast. It was now midday of the day before—a time differential which helped secure the city’s inhabitants.
At last she could relax. She was home. The precious information she had brought was safe and would soon be transferred into the hands of those who would exact justice.
Retribution for the conglomerate of predatory commodity traders was swift. The markets came alive in ways that proved devastating to the avaricious Overlords. Traders and their greedy investors were brought to their knees. The battle for the world was taking on a new dimension.
