About Mary Brock Jones

Mary Brock Jones lives in Auckland, New Zealand, but her childhood years in the stunning Otago region of the South Island live on in the romantic adventures of her heroes and heroines.

“When not office bound or being forced to see how much my four grown sons now tower over me, much to their endless amusement, I write historical romances and science fiction.

The romances stem from my early years in the southernmost parts of New Zealand, a land where history still marches alongside the farmers, stunning tourist vistas and entrepeneurial endeavours of the modern day. The love of historicals comes from the pages of great books such as those by Georgette Heyer, and Dorothy Dunnett.

The science fiction is also founded in those early years. The first landing on the moon is a vivid memory, even if it was in very shaky black and white. Growing up on a fictional diet of Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings”, and any other SF or fantasy work available was tied to a fascination in the natural world. I was a farm raised child of the fifties and sixties, a time when science was going to make anything possible, and science fiction seemed readily close to fact in my imagination.
My parents introduced me to libraries and gave me the freedom to dream. Is it any wonder I became a writer?”

About the Series: Arcadia
Two ecological engineers must change their world to save it.

Fee comes from the mountains of her world. She grew up with trees, rushing streams and rain. The grasslands beyond the foothills are Caleb’s home. Dry, windblown, a place of endless light and untouchable horizons.

Both are ecological engineers for the Survey, working to save their world from environmental disaster before it’s too late. Unless something is done, soon, the planet is going to hit back.

Storms, floods, drought. Don’t bother taking your pick, says the planet, you’re going to get the lot.

Only the men and women of the Survey hear the call, working in secret no for years to heal Arcadia’s wounds. Now the Survey has a plan to save their world. Fee and Caleb must make lakes where dusty grasses rule; meadows where dense forest stands, no matter the cost to all they love and without their profit-geared families finding out until it’s too late to stop them.

An impossible task surely? All they have in common is the love both have for their home regions and the lies they must tell the families who love them.

But why Fee and Caleb, and what does the Survey truly plan for them?
