Disgraced at school and betrayed by her former mentor, archaeologist Claire Everston has been on the run for seven months, desperate to put her past behind her and build a new life. But now her mentor has gone missing, and a strange undersea discovery has made Claire a target for sinister forces who will stop at nothing to see that Claire's knowledge dies with her.

From the mysteries in the black coral reefs of Hawaii to the secrets of a prized mineral-laden asteroid, Claire must use all of her training and courage to unravel the deadly political and economic agendas that threaten her very existence. Aided by an ex-Special Forces agent with a troubled past, Claire embarks on a race against time to  find her old mentor, clear her name and discover the secret of...PROJECT CATCHSTAR.

The game's afoot...Dreams and Shadows, my contemporary romantic novella, is off to the good folk at Entangled Publishing. Here's hoping that they like what they see.

I'll be releasing Project Catchstar, my new adult thriller, sometime in December. Right now I'm working with the fabulous author/artist Rachel Marks to design the cover art. Very excited to release this one to the world!

Current projects include my fantasy YA novel set in a magical American south, The Mystery of Perdu Island, and another new adult thriller, as yet untitled, with light sci-fi elements and a hot romance between a straight-arrow boy and a serious bad girl.

Will keep you posted...

Later this month I'll be at the World Fantasy Convention in Brighton. Looking forward to catching up with everyone. I'll see you at Barcon!

Cheers,

Mary

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I'm Mary Rodgers, a science fiction and fantasy author. My first novel, To Ride The Sky, is currently out on submission. An adventure story set in the future on a distant planet, the novel features a courageous young outcast, Anina, as she fights to make a place for herself in a rigid and hostile society. The book has romance and horses and spaceships, oh my! and I hope that you have as much fun reading the story as I did creating it.

   Stay tuned for postings of new material and podcasts of me reading samples of my work.

    In the meantime, feel free to poke around my site, read some excerpts from works in progress, and leave a comment, if you're so inclined.

Welcome to my worlds.

Cheers,
Mary

 

Romance

Dreams & Shadows

Alone and grief-stricken, Tessa McAllister takes refuge in the crumbling ruins of her ancestral home, wanting nothing more than to sink forever into the hazy netherworld between memory and dream.

But light and love in the form of a most unusual man tempt her from her sorrow, burning away the mental shrouds in which she hides and forcing Tessa to make a choice: to wrap herself in the familiarity of the past, or embrace an uncertain future?

Her shadows have ever been both shield and prison. Facing the truth that they conceal may be the only thing that can set Tessa free…

Listen to me read a few excerpts from my works in progress...

Project Catchstar

Her reputation blackened and her spirit broken, budding archaeologist Claire Everston has been in hiding for months. But her past is about to catch up with her. Listen in as she meets Theo and Johnnie for the first time. Desperate for information, they've finally tracked Claire down.

And they've led her enemies straight to her...

The Mystery of Perdu Island

Nothing much ever happened in sleepy Fairfield. At least, that's what best friends Billy and Chance always thought. Right up until the day that Chance's daddy went missing. Listen in as they meet Odile, a strange girl who just might hold the key to finding out what happened.

Because the truth is, nothing in Fairfield is what it seems...and there's a reason that Perdu Island is supposed to stay lost...

Dreams and Shadows

Tessa McAllister has just one goal: to fog her brain with whiskey until her hurt goes away. But life in the form of her perfect sister, Grace, and the oddest police officer that she's ever met keeps interfering. Listen in as Tessa has a run-in with Grace at the corner store.

It seems that Grace's life is not so perfect after all. And Tessa may find that her hated famly ties are the only thing that can free her from her pain...
