The Girl Who Came From The Moon
1987 Richfield, British Columbia.
Two children are stargazing on the night of a new moon, when a meteor hits the field near where they lay. A meteor with a passenger, a strange and frightened young girl who will bring adventure to Richfield of a kind never before known. She will change their lives forever, and forge the fate of two worlds.
A whimsical yet griping science fiction novel for all ages, The Girl Who Came From The Moon surprises and delights, yet still has the teeth to frighten. This book upturns the “magical teenager” genre in a way that has never been done before.
The semi-fictional town of Richfield is born of memory and imagination. It is named after a real ghost town, as are all the locations named in this book. Consider this a parallel world, one where anything is possible, even in 1987.
Here is a place, and time, where we all belong.

The Anahita Chronicles : Book III
Overflow has been weaponised. The miraculous and strange radioactive fluid that allows star ships to travel across the universe in the blink of an eye has properties not unlike antimatter. Its potential as a world killing weapon did not go unnoticed. Now, the American Government has begun construction of a missile capable of immediate extragalactic strike. Russia has nearly completed construction of their own star ship, and also intends to weaponise the excess fluid, but Russia is not the enemy. Earth has been directly threatened by a new and unknown alien presence, beings who are also apparently capable of Overflow travel. A message threatening invasion of the Earth has been transmitted from somewhere in the Andromedae constellation.
Meanwhile on distant Anahita, an ancient and abandoned city complex constructed of solid crystal has been discovered buried under an old growth forest. Undeniable evidence connects it directly to the strange new threat from Andromedae.
Canadian author Samuel Blondahl provides a powerful story with themes that affect us all. Do not miss the stunning conclusion to the Mercury trilogy.
