Welcome to the world, baby book!

 Good afternoon!

A little while ago, the postman delivered the box that I had been waiting for… After two years of hard work, my novel “Alternatives” is finally here!

I have a box of signed copies ready to enter the world. If you’re interested, they’re available in both print and e-book (Kindle) editions. I’ve included the links at the bottom of this post.


Book Blurb:

Sci-fi meets romance in this quirky read!

Theoretically, there exists a parallel version of reality for every possible outcome of our life choices. What if you were given a glimpse into your alternative lives? What version of yourself would you see? How would it influence your future decisions?

Francis Marino’s quiet life on the Oregon coast was interrupted when two military officers arrived on her doorstep with a bizarre story and urged her to come with them. Thus began an unexpected adventure that forced her to leave her comfort zone and confront many of her beliefs about the world we live in.

As the commander of a highly classified military facility, Colonel Dominic Davis was dedicated to his job. But, after being exposed to an alien device, he is given visions of two alternative realities. Dom realizes that he needs to make changes– both personal and professional.

Life on Earth hangs in the balance…

Thanks everyone! As always, I appreciate your support. Without readers, I’d have no one to share my books with!
