Writing and language have been a life-long pleasure, wordsmithery offering the ability to twist emotion into sense and cosmos. When I'm not dancing around the living room with my family, we do church, long walks, and lots of coffee. In my spare time I like to watch a great movie, write encouraging blogs, and order pizza like a boss.
After earning a BA in Public Relations at Howard Payne University, I spent a few years figuring out what I wanted to do with the majority of my time on this planet, and then worked for an MFA in Creative Writing from National University. I instruct English courses on the university level and plan my schedule around coffee availability. See http://www.kadeecarder.com/ for a little more about this crazy ol' life and my books.
Power within her. War without. Between the lines of flirtation and justice, Saylor must clench the missing pieces of her fate. While harnessing her ability to communicate with deadly weapons of mass destruction, attending the annual gala, and fighting her growing feelings for the hunky Australian soldier, Saylor’s instincts become increasingly distressed. Tempted by greed and in-dependence, she must determine what she stands for and on whose side she belongs.
Saylor had been told she was a stain on the cloth of mankind. When she and her sister orphans Micah, Denise, and Patricia are apprehended upon the high seas, they find themselves imprisoned on a Caribbean island filled with strange noises, dazzling beaches, and a secret military base. Wavering between terror and ecstasy, Saylor develops her inner warrior while facing an enemy exposing her indispensable abilities. In order to rescue her sisters, impress the hunky Australian, and protect innocent lives on a global scale, she must master techniques of fighting an army created to destroy with a single, scorching touch – or die trying.
