About the Author

Sherrie Roth grew up in Western Kansas thinking that there was no place in the universe more fascinating than outer space. After her mother vetoed astronaut as a career ambition, she went on to study journalism and physics in hopes of becoming a science writer.
She published her first science fiction short story long ago, and then waited a lot of tables while she looked for inspiration for the next story. When it finally came, it declared to her that it had to be whole book, nothing less. One night, while digesting this disturbing piece of news, she drank way too many shots of ouzo with her boyfriend. She woke up thirty-one years later demanding to know what was going on.
The boyfriend, who she had apparently long since married, asked her to calm down and explained that in a fit of practicality she had gone back to school and gotten a degree in geophysics and had spent the last 28 years interpreting seismic data in the oil industry. The good news, according to Mr. Cronin, was that she had found it at least mildly entertaining and ridiculously well-paying The bad news was that the two of them had still managed to spend almost all of the money.
Apparently she was now Mrs. Cronin, and the further good news was that they had produced three wonderful children whom they loved dearly, even though to be honest that is where a lot of the money had gone. Even better news was that Mr. Cronin turned out to be a warm-hearted, encouraging sort who was happy to see her awake and ready to write. "It's about time," were his exact words.
Sherrie Cronin discovered that over the ensuing decades Sally Ride had already managed to become the first woman in space and apparently had done a fine job of it. No one, however, had written the book that had been in Sherrie's head for decades. The only problem was, the book informed her sternly that it had now grown into a collection of six books. Sherrie decided that she better start writing it before it got any longer. She's been wide awake ever since, and writing away.

C3 is the fourth book of its series. The story is about a teenage girl from Texas. She possesses some powers that are uncontrollable. When a stranger offers her a chance to be more than what she is, the opportunity is hard to pass. Human trafficking is taking place, and the protagonist wishes to save her missing friends. With the help of a stranger, she accepts his challenge and displays her powers taking revenge on everyone who derived it. I found the story to be very interesting to read. The concept was great. However, there were moments when I was a little confused. The plot was intriguing, and the mystical aspects of the work were described well. I sometimes had to re-read certain parts to understand what exactly had happened. This did not take away much from experience but, it could have been avoidable. Another interesting aspect of this book was that it focused on the mental issue of human trafficking. This made the sexual or physical aspect of the encounter to be lessened and more suitable for all ages. I recommend this book to people that care about educating girls from developing countries.
