The next book, which is now being edited, is a prequel. Ever wonder how the AgFlu started?
You're going to find out. Sea Bound: The Beginning and Sea Bound: The Atlantis Cure will give you all the answers, as well as, action, intrigue, thrills, twists, and turns!
If you love Dylan, Skye, Jesse, and Wade, don't worry! I have three more books full of their adventures waiting their turn with the editor!
Sea Bound does give you an all-new cast, and I hope you love them as much as I do!
Sea Bound starts with Sonora (nicknamed Sunny), who dreams of becoming a Marine Biologist. She's ready for college, but everything works against her. Until she swims into something that seems too crazy to be true. Soon Sonora is caught up in family mysteries she never dreamed of, and finding a ruthless scientist who is hunting the man she loves.
Below I will have an excerpt from Sea Bound: The Beginning! I hope you enjoy it!
Interesting Fact about the Sanctuary Series! I started Sanctuary's Aggression 1 about two years ago. One book turned into more, and while I loved writing about Dylan and Skye's world, I also started to write Sea Bound.
At first, there was no connection, but as I continued with both of the books I thought I'd like to have some small easter eggs between those two and another I have in the works. I've always found that a special treat in the books I read.
I mentioned the idea to my husband and daughter. Almost at the same time, they said why don't you just connect the three stories. I sat there rather dumbfounded for a moment. The three seemed to have totally different storylines. But the wheels were moving and within five minutes, I'd figured out the new, now massive story!
I said then and I say now. This is either the greatest thing or the worst thing. So far, early betas who have read it, love it!
I've ended up loving the idea so much, I have more than one series planned in the Sanctuary's Aggression universe! I wish I could type faster. lol

Excerpt from Sea Bound. First, I'll give you a taste of what Sonora is up against - the bad guy! (By the way, this is before the editor.)
The man stood in the back of the truck and watched, without emotion, as the body awkwardly rolled out of the truck bed and flopped onto the ground. He jumped down, following the body out, and gave it another hard kick with the toe of his boot sending it over the sharp edge of the cliff.
The blackness of his clothing matched the darkness of the night. An ugly twist settled on the man's mouth as he wondered why he had bothered trying to be inconspicuous. Everyone in this town was so dense, he could have lined them up for the show, and they still wouldn't have known what was going on.
He walked to the ledge and stood, looking down on the open ocean below, the bright moon now illuminating both him and the water. His face was calm, though interested as he watched the body bounce against the rocky cliff here and there, disturbing the soil, where it hit.
Small rocks and stones fell along with the body, some going ahead of it and some pelting it as they fell. At last, the dark form hit the water making what seemed like a small splash from this great height. It took a moment to resurface, but then immediately started to move with the rhythm of the water as the tide made its way out to the deeper, darker ocean.
The man turned and closed the tailgate of the black truck, pulling on it once to make sure it was secure before he got in the driver's side. Once inside, he pulled at the rear-view mirror, aligning it so he could make sure his dark hair was still in place. It was windy along the sea today, and he didn't want to appear tousled when he arrived at home.
The man put the truck in gear and carefully drove it down the walking path. Though it had not been made for a vehicle, it was broad enough for one, and the man had always considered it the best way to dispose of the bodies.
He would’ve liked more time with this one. He’d felt he was finally onto something, something that could help humankind. He shook his head. It seemed no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t find what he needed.
The man’s jaw tightened, and his lip curled. Abominations are what he called them, and he hated them. His disgust for their kind ran deep, and he was sure that any atrocities he committed against them were not only acceptable but also justified.
After all, they weren’t human; even they didn’t deny that. If just one of them would admit they were… but no, they believed they were better than us, stronger than us, smarter than us. His breath became raspy as his hands tightened in anger, his knuckles whitening on the steering wheel as he recalled their arrogance. He'd worked his whole life to show them who the superior species was, and yet, they were moronic enough, they still didn't grasp the situation.
How many bodies did it take?
Each body was a message, a warning for the rest of their kind. A message that said, we are still here, and we are coming for you.
He imagined them finding this one. By the time it would reach them, he wondered how much would be left and if they would recognize who it was. He hoped so. He hoped the tattoo was still intact when it got there.
His jaw was so tight, his teeth ground together. He wanted them to know.
The man steadied as he drove onto the road and reached into his pocket for a list of groceries his wife had given him that morning. He held the note up and scanned it as he drove, recognizing the items as the ingredients in his favorite dinner, and his stomach growled as if anxious for his first taste of it.
His wife often did small things to make his life easier and more enjoyable, and he appreciated her efforts. He did his best to make sure she understood just how grateful he was that she even tried, so many wives didn't anymore.
Yes, he always made sure she knew just how much he appreciated her, whether she liked it or not.
Sea Bound: The Beginning will be on preorder within the month.
