One Too
by Sherrie Cronin

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Sci-fi/Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Telepathy creates as many problems as it solves, as most of the members of the secret organization x0 would admit. When new member Lola discovers another group of telepaths with a completely different approach, those problems multiply at the speed of thought.

Soon, Lola’s family and friends are in danger. Lucky for her, she’s not your average budding psychic. Each person with whom she is close has a special gift of their own. That’s good, because it’s going to take every power they possess to keep this other group from succeeding with their plan to eradicate x0.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

The invitation for this TV appearance had been presented to her as chance to explain her views and defend her ideas against these attackers. Yet now that she was in New York about to go on air, every instinct was telling her this was a huge mistake.

She looked off stage at the well dressed, tall Latina with shiny, long, black hair who had greeted her and appeared to be the producer of this segment. In spite of an otherwise strong, almost regal, body, the woman walked with a cane. A small amount of underlying pain was evident in her eyes. The rest of her mind was a gauzy grey of unreadableness. Very odd.

Lola’s misgivings were so strong that she considered simply walking back off the stage, perhaps feigning sudden illness. But then the words “on in five” blared, and the chirpy host she had met briefly a few minutes ago walked to his seat. The next thing Lola knew, he was saying, “Meet today’s guest, Lola Zeitman, a quiet geophysicist from Houston who has stirred some people up with her little article called ‘Face Painting for World Peace.’”

As he said the words, Lola was finally able to pick up a clear thought from him. Unfortunately, the thought was that this interview had no other purpose but to make her look like an absolute dimwit.

Telepathy is not always as useful as you’d think, she thought. Do your best to make it through this with your dignity intact.

AUTHOR BIO:


Sherrie grew up in Western Kansas thinking that there was no place in the universe more fascinating than outer space. After her mother vetoed astronaut as a career ambition, she went on to study journalism and physics in hopes of becoming a science writer.

She published her first science fiction short story long ago, and then waited a lot of tables while she looked for inspiration for the next story. When it finally came, it declared to her that it had to be whole book, nothing less. One night, while digesting this disturbing piece of news, she drank way too many shots of ouzo with her boyfriend. She woke up thirty-one years later demanding to know what was going on.

The boyfriend, who she had apparently long since married, asked her to calm down and explained that in a fit of practicality she had gone back to school and gotten a degree in geophysics and had spent the last 28 years interpreting seismic data in the oil industry. The good news, according to Mr. Cronin, was that she had found it at least mildly entertaining and ridiculously well-paying. The bad news was that the two of them had still managed to spend almost all of the money.

Apparently she was now Mrs. Cronin, and the further good news was that they had produced three wonderful children whom they loved dearly, even though to be honest that is where a lot of the money had gone. Even better news was that Mr. Cronin turned out to be a warm-hearted, encouraging sort who was happy to see her awake and ready to write. "It's about time," were his exact words.

Sherrie Cronin discovered that over the ensuing decades Sally Ride had already managed to become the first woman in space and apparently had done a fine job of it. No one, however, had written the book that had been in Sherrie's head for decades. The only problem was, the book informed her sternly that it had now grown into a six book collection. Sherrie decided that she better start writing it before it got any longer. She's been wide awake ever since, and writing away.

    1. Thanks Bridgett. I admit to be being a little obsessed with my covers. I usually start on them about half way through the book and develop the cover ideas in tandem with the story. Seems to work for me. :)

    1. Thank you Victoria. Writing this book has made me quite aware of the ways telepathy might not always be useful.

    1. Good question, Cindy. It is a big thing emotionally to finish a collection of six books, so I'm lucky I have another project developing in my head. This next one will be more of an indefinite series, and be a combination of science fiction and crime fiction. (I love both genres.)

  7. When you started this colleciton of 6 books, did you plan it that way from the start or did it just develop that way?
