About this title

Synopsis:

Sydney Harter has long awaited September 12th, 2033, her eighteenth birthday. She can finally apply for guardianship of her sister Evvie, her only family and entire world. Sydney holds a sliver of hope that they will be lawfully reunited, and that light will return to her desolate life, but she is prepared to defy authority and risk everything to escape Miles County so that she and Evvie can live full lives together.

Escaping will be difficult and dangerous. Citizens are bound to their county by sophisticated chip implants that deliver shocks to anyone who crosses the county's electric barrier. Sydney is very clever, but her trickery is limited against the all-seeing eyes of county technology. It seems impossible to escape into the forgotten forests and cities of the past, but Sydney is determined to find a way if she is denied guardianship of her sister. For years she has longed to break free from the government's experimental Petri Dish and the hallowed drones that inhabit it.

What Sydney doesn't know is that the county has particular interest in her. Her place in this complex dystopia is about to change. Deceit, fear, and warfare will come to characterize her life, yet her love for Evvie will always prevail. She must protect her sister, but at what cost?

Concealed in the Shadows is a novel with gripping action, intriguing suspense, and unexpected turns of events. The situations and decisions that the characters must face pull at the very fabric of the human heart.

The subtext artfully examines an array of timeless social and political complexities, fitting this novel for both adults and inquisitive, young readers. The heart and soul are equally satisfied through immersion into such human themes as trust, love, and courage.

From the Author:

Let me begin by sending a world of thanks to my dedicated readers. Being a novelist is truly a dream--one I could not have achievedwithout your encouragement and feedback.

Writing Concealed in theShadows, my debut novel, was very fulfilling. Between the day the premise came to me and the day I finally typed the opening line, the plot andcharacters had developed so much to my liking that I simply had to bring this story to fruition.

Newcharacters, worlds, story lines, and twists introduce themselves to me daily. I foresee a life of storytelling, and I invite you to accompany me on the journey.
