Beneath rock and soil, trees and oceans, she lies.
Under concrete jungles and poisoned rivers, she slumbers.
She is Mother Earth.
And mankind has turned its back on its mother.
The visions begin on Terran’s seventeenth birthday. Horrifying images pummel her brain, while a voice commands her to see beyond the world she thought she knew and into the heart of it. Gaia has awakened, brought to consciousness by the greed of a species that has tainted every aspect of her being in a tide of indifference. With this awareness, comes rage. Gaia calls upon her children to unleash her fury, wreaking vengeance on humanity.
Terran will emerge in a world on the brink of collapse, to face a being whose wrath is beyond imagining.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
We face a multitude of environmental issues that span every facet of the globe. With this in mind, I began to wonder what Mother Earth would say if she were a real being. Would she be angry? Would she demand vengeance?
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My characters have roots that tie to the story itself. I do a great deal of research as I write and each character, down to their names, have connections to the story.
Deep within the bowels of the earth, she stirs, awareness dawning by slow degrees until her being is flooded by it. Rooted within her consciousness, like a rotten tooth, is knowledge of a world plagued by indifferent beings whose wasteful pursuits have left a wake of corruption. She writhes, curling round and round in the confines of her shape, twisting in agony as a multitude of tortured voices drift through the mantle and into her heart.
In a moment of triumphant resolve, she wrenches away from a miasma of anguish and calls to her children, beckoning them. Like fireflies illuminating the darkness with pinpoints of light, they respond, reaching toward their mother with fierce purpose. She infuses their thoughts with her own, commanding them to rise, find the others, and begin.
