I'm an avid writer, traveler, and dog lover. I grew up in Chicago, IL raised by two librarians with a sincere love for storytelling, and the rest has been one long and mostly memorable adventure. I have published 3 novels, 7 novellas and more than 65 short stories. My stories have been featured on The Book Cave, received praise from award-winning authors, and become bestsellers on Amazon and Smashwords. I currently live in Spartanburg, SC, where I have the privilege of working with amazing people who love books and storytelling as much as I do.

After having read some of this author's fantasy books, I was curious what the science fiction was like.
Rebel Girl did not disappoint. Zayna's struggle to rescue her Martian settlement takes some unexpected turns. There was a mystery-element as the story unfolded that made me reading through to the last page and it was refreshing to see some real mental depth to Zayna (loved her irreverent attitude btw!) and ditto Skyler to a lesser extent. I like stories where cooperation rather than one super genius is what it takes to resolve the conflict, and Rebel Girl definitely works on that level.
Although I really, really enjoyed Rebel Girl of Mars overall, I would offer these pros can cons to the would-be reader. #1 There isn't a ton of backstory here. Some may like that (I did), some may find that frustrating with a few unresolved questions. The story gets into the action very quickly (Chap. 2) and the pressure honestly does not let up. Would have liked maybe a few more chapters at the end...it felt like the author left things open for a sequel..hm, as for me, I would've preferred a longer book ;) Still, solid ending :)
