Award-winning author C.J. Darlington makes her YA debut with Jupiter Winds, and she’s already off to a great start with an endorsement from sci-fi veteran Kathy Tyers (Firebird). Tyers calls Jupiter Winds “A fast-paced, character-driven space adventure that’s reminiscent of science fiction’s golden age.”
THE FACTS: C.J. is the award-winning author of the contemporary novels Thicker than Blood, Bound by Guilt, and Ties that Bind. Her new novel Jupiter Winds is a YA/space adventure/dystopian. She is a regular contributor to various websites. In 2013 C.J. co-founded Mountainview Books, LLC, an indie publisher of Christian fiction. She makes her home in Pennsylvania with her family and their menagerie of animals. You can find her on her website cjdarlington.com as well as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Goodreads.
THE FICTION: In 2160, a teenager becomes the bait to capture her missing revolutionary parents she thinks are long dead.
Grey Alexander has one goal–to keep herself and her younger sister Orinda alive. Not an easy feat living unconnected in the North American Wildlife Preserve, where they survive by smuggling contraband into the Mazdaar government’s city zones. If the invisible electric border fence doesn’t kill them, a human-like patrol drone could.
When her worst fear comes true, Grey questions everything she thinks she knows about life, her missing parents, and God. Could another planet, whose sky swirls with orange vapors and where extinct-on-Earth creatures roam free, hold the key to reuniting her family?
THE BIG QUESTION: If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
C.J.’S BIG ANSWER: I’d want to fly! That would be awesome, don’t you think? 🙂
