ABOUT THE BOOK: “THE GIRL WITH THE LIGHTNING BRAIN”

“Electra is exceptional.  She knows that.  And she also knows her extraordinary abilities – the paranormal aftermath of a near-death experience at birth – are secrets that must never be revealed.  Her life depends on it.

So begins chapter one in book one of the ground-breaking “Lightning Brain” action-adventure series that extrapolates the latest science, political intrigue, and contemporary lifestyles while tracing the twists and turns in the life of Electra “Kit” Kittner.  She grows up in a frightened, intolerant America threatened by “Techno-Plague” and Middle East Terrorism.  The action builds relentlessly, from lighter childhood adventures to darker realities caused by America’s threats that are exacerbated by a harsh government that would treat her badly if it were to discover what she is.  Electra is more than up to the challenge, choosing a career path on which she fights these existential problems.

Readers are invited to enjoy the series at whatever level they choose: from a gripping action-packed thriller all the way to an exploration of the timeless challenges “the human condition” presents each of us.  And along the way, be prepared to meet a cast of endearing characters, each having strengths and weaknesses we can empathize with.  We welcome you to join us.
