Overview

A Psilent Place Below by Ms. Marcha Fox

Finding refuge from Cyraria's lethal heat in an underground network of caverns, it doesn't take Dirck Brightstar long to discover these are no ordinary caves. Something has not only intensified his awareness, but brought visions of events to come that have dire consequences if allowed to proceed without intervention. With his father's imprisonment motivated entirely by hostile political forces, the revelation that the man's life is in danger demands action. Plunged into a level of responsibility and intrigue far beyond what Mira III prepared him for, Dirck has no choice but to tackle the evil forces which have scattered the family across the galaxy if he ever wants to see everyone reunited again. This is the third volume of the Star Trails Tetralogy following both "Beyond the Hidden Sky" and "A Dark of Endless Days." While intended to be read in order each can be enjoyed independently. Visit www.StarTrailsSaga.com for additional information about the series and Star Trails universe including a glossary of terms and definitions. Also included is a section for parents and educators who may wish to use the books as a springboard for discussion.

About the Author

Marcha Fox's credentials as a science fiction writer include a bachelor of science degree in physics from Utah State University followed by a 21 year career at NASA where she held a variety of positions including technical writer, engineer and eventually manager. Her NASA experiences included trips to Cape Canaveral in Florida, visiting other NASA centers in Mississippi, Alabama and Maryland as well as trips to the European Space Agency in The Netherlands but the most memorable was the sad task of helping to recover space shuttle debris in East Texas following the tragic Columbia accident in 2003.

Her writing combines her knowledge of engineering and physics with modern scientific theories including speculations regarding other dimensions and quantum theory, particularly as it relates to the human mind. These provide a backdrop for the Star Trails series and the exploits of the Brightstar family along with a variety of alien and mechanical personalities, all trying to survive in a hostile world amid scientific and political intrigue.

Her approach of including accurate science in additional to speculation allows readers not only to learn such principles painlessly but to not have to "unlearn" incorrect ones later. "Science fiction inspired me to pursue a degree in physics," she states. "I hope to do the same for today's readers."
