New dangers, old enemies, and more follow Dust as a new world order is established, one that will pit one species against another. Life is about to become very hazardous—for anyone who gets in his way.
Dust’s increasing uncertainty of the changes inside him, the treacherous journey to Portland, Oregon in search of his aunt and uncle, and his growing feelings for Sammy have him on edge. He is reluctant to tell his adopted family that the power inside him is growing again and that he isn’t sure when—or if—it will ever stop. When they reach Portland, Dust discovers a line has been drawn between those who have been changed and the unchanged ones who want to control them.
Can Dust protect his new family from being used or will the power growing inside him become a force that will not only destroy his enemies, but also the ones he loves?
Dust wakes to discover the world as he knew it is gone after fragments of a comet hit the Earth. It isn’t the only thing that has changed, though, so has Dust. He now possesses powers that continue to grow, but also come with a price. A deadly encounter after he leaves his home leads to a new discovery – other survivors.
Dust soon learns that another creature has risen from the ashes, one that is determined to possess the powers that he has. On a journey filled with danger, it will take the skills of not just Dust, but those of his friends, if they are to survive.
This time the race is not to the swift, but to the deadliest in a world where a changed human boy and an odd assortment of friends must face their worst nightmares, and accept that life on Earth will never be the same again.
Join Dust and his friends as they fight to overcome an evil force determined to create a new species unlike anything the world has ever known.

I’m also excited to share that a film company has requested a script of Voyage of the Defiance. I’m not sure if anything will come of it, but just to be asked is a huge compliment!

Sixteen year old Makayla Summerlin enjoyed one thing in her crazy, messed-up existence: hanging with her friends at school. Her life is uprooted when she suddenly finds herself forced to live with the grandfather she barely remembers.

On a journey that will challenge everything she has ever believed about herself, Makayla must overcome her fears if she, and a surprising stowaway, are to survive.
