THE EARTH SHIFTER is my unique take on what has been and what is to come, as we speed ahead toward our common future. As with all of my books, THE EARTH SHIFTER is a whimsical and original, yet satisfying, stew of fantasy and reality. The cataclysms and events described in it indeed took place, and those predicted may materialize, if mankind… But I’ll leave it up to you to decide where fantasy ends and reality starts. This is BOOK 1 of the trilogy, with Books 2 and 3 to be released in the not so distant future.
In THE EARTH SHIFTER you won't find sword fights, and no one gets struck with lightning bolts, although there is a geopolitical/spy element with all of its implications (you know me, dear readers ;)). The powers described in the book are much more subtle, and therefore much more, shall we say, "EARTH SHIFTING."
This book is written for both young adults and grown ups. It is a true YA Crossover, suitable for most readers: early teen to adult.

If I could compare my books to planets of the Solar System, then I'd say that:
EARTH KEEPERS CHRONICLES are like Mercury - closest to the Sun, compact, fast moving, and delivering urgent, to the point messages.
ACCIDENTAL SPY ADVENTURES are like the middle planets: Venus, Earth and Mars - not too slow, not too fast, vastly and fascinatingly different, yet similar in size and speed.
THE EARTH SHIFTER project is like the giant outer planets: Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune - slow moving, mysterious and dangerous, but whose sizes and orbits have a huge and long-term impact on life on Earth and in our Solar System in general, even if we don't realize it.
THE EARTH SHIFTER is a result of a lifetime of research and experiences. I've been working on this trilogy, which is very dear to my heart, for a few years, and will be finishing Book 1 soon, with the help of my cosmic buddies, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, of course!
