Friday Fictioneers: The Young
We were both excited; it was the first time we’d vacationed on a South Pacific island.
As soon as we were settled into our hotel room, she ran outside to enjoy the sun.
She ran barefoot along the beach. She splashed in the water until her pants were soaked.
With her arms raised to shoulder height, she ran as if she was flying. She twirled, leapt, and hopped.
She didn’t stop until we sat down for lunch.
“Your 69 years old,” I reminded her.
“Best to enjoy life while I’m still young.” She laughed.

This is not your typical science fiction novel. It’s set on a planet in the Pegasus Constellation, but there are no monster aliens, and no wars in space.
This trilogy is about people like Lieutenant Jessica M. Hewitt, Rona Montgomery, and High Priest Adumie who, like all of us, struggle with self-worth, rejection, and love relationships.
This trilogy might just be your next read.
