Synopsis: "Soulquest" is the second book in the Soulshine Series, following "Soulshine". Michelle Fleming believes that Evan Troy is dead, killed by her father. She has traveled from her home in Riverside, USA to Paris, France... forever young due to the ancient elixir that Evan had given her so that she may be eternal like him. But others know of the elixir, and one of them has evil plans for the elixir, Michelle and her four new friends. Can Evan save them in time? Or will the newly assembled team of heroines be adequately able to take care of themselves? And who is the mysterious Tristan Heat? Combine an ancient elixir, time travel, mystery, adventure, and love without boundaries in the midst of peril... and you have "Soulquest".

From the Author: From the Author

                When I had completed writing Soulshine, my original intent was to end the story there, giving no thought to a writing a sequel and thus creating a series.  Soulshine is a complete story with a beginning, middle and end.  Though the ending of the book had left things up in the air as far as where life would take Evan Troy and Michelle Fleming, it did introduce a man of dubious character named Philippe Ducharme, last seen manipulating the dependent Michelle after managing to duplicate the elixir that had given her eternal youthfulness.  I was content to leave it at that, letting the reader imagine the plight of the two lovers with Michelle resigned to believing that Evan is dead.  The ironic role reversal of Evan and Michelle was the planned ending.  Evan, the world traveler for many centuries, would stay in Riverside and care for Michelle's mother, Mary Fleming, feeling an overwhelming responsibility to make amends for bringing the elixir into the twentieth century and forever effecting Michelle's life.  Michelle, living at home for her first thirteen years, would become the world traveler, settling down first in Paris.  I expected the readers to draw their own conclusions about the possible negative ramifications of Evan's actions once Philippe had obtained the elixir.
                The feedback I later received, however, is that the readers wanted more, expecting me to continue the saga.  One reader shared with me that Soulshine had made him reconsider the true meaning of love.  This caused me to look at the characters in a new light.  Others demanded to be informed of Michelle's fate.  The result of the reader demand is SoulquestSoulshine had no antagonist.  It had the mystery surrounding the Brothers' Keepers, ancient Greeks posing as monks who seemed to know a lot about Evan Troy, but there was really no villain.  The actions of Evan, giving in to Michelle's adoration and slipping her the elixir to keep her beautifully young, made him the sole target of either admiration or contempt, depending on each reader's point of view.  In Soulquest, I had the opportunity to develop Philippe Ducharme from a dubious character to the main villain.  Throughout the writing process, I developed a greater understanding of each character.  It was enjoyable for me to present most of the characters as complicated people, imperfect in their deeds and desires regardless of whether they have lived for many centuries or not.
                As Michelle was the inspiration for Soulshine, the character of Judith, or Cricket to her friends, has the tendency to steal the show, as well as the hearts, in Soulquest.  All together, four new heroines are introduced as the elixir produces ramifications in many lives.  In the end, Soulquest, like Soulshine, stands on its own, with plenty of background information provided for readers to get the gist of the whole story.  Yet it also serves as a sequel, a continuation of the Soulshine saga.  And yes, there remains plenty of room for a third book to complete the trilogy.  So stay tuned.
         
Also, with Soulquest, I had decided to incorporate something that I have always enjoyed in old story books... chapter titles that give readers a hint of what to expect.  Sadly, this practice has gone out of style in many of today's books.  If I ever publish the trilogy as one volume, the chapters of the first book will also receive apt titles.

                In addition to thanking my readers, I also want to thank my wife, Cheryl, for giving me the seclusion time needed to write.  I also want to thank my children, Ethan and Trista (whose names provided a perfect anagram for the character of the mysterious and inquisitive Tristan Heat in this book), for allowing me my privacy, though I did try my best to do most of my writing while they were sleeping.

Sincerely,
J.W. Rocque
