Overview

'"Don't think about it, you'll wake up soon," she whispered to herself and took a step forward, and then another. She closed her eyes and followed Solitaire into the light..'
The 'Odysseus System' is what the Gods call our Universe. It is controlled by God Odysseus and Overlords that watch over the inhabital planets. There are ten such planets in our Universe, and this is the story of Satiren.....
Llicia grew up on the planet Balon, and she knew from a young age that she did not fit it. She was taller than most people on Balon, very pale, with white hair and piercing, ice blue eyes. She was difficult and refused to form attachments with anyone, except her strange, very large white cat named Solitaire. He was with her when she was first found in the snow as a toddler.
Now at seventeen, she has been told about Satiren, her home planet and has been given a quest that only she can carry out. She must find the ancient Ulysses and save Satiren and its people from destruction by the Overlords.
She reluctantly follows Solitaire into the porthole tunnels that will take her to her world, but an unexpected encounter throws her of course, and she arrives alone in a strange and hostile part of Satiren, injured and lost.
Ferloe is the young Mavaho Chief, who lives with his people on the Silversands desert on Satiren. He defeated his evil father, Black Eagle, to take control of their tribe. He and his sister Aiyana have been tasked with meeting and helping Llicia on her quest. When she does not arrive they realise something has gone wrong, and set about trying to find her. So they enlist the help of a small, hilarious, but powerful wizard named Wigholt
With enemies around every corner, and aid from strange magical sources, Llicia learns of her past and who her parents were. She battles her way to the mountains to find her brother, King Arlen of the Crystalites. But will King Arlen be pleased to see his long lost sister?
Will Ferloe get their in time to save her and Satiren? And what will Llicia make of the dark, Mavaho Chief, her people and her evil brother? As things gets more complicated, the clock is ticking and they must find the Ulysses before it's too late.

About the Author

I first wrote this book twenty two years ago. I had been travelling around the world, and had married an American, who lived in Orange County, California. He worked away a lot, and as I knew no one, I wrote the first version of this story, using my travelling experiences to decribe the rainforests and deserts in my fictional world.
I then went on to live an extremely crazy life, adopting three children and having two of my own. So it ended up in the bottom of my drawer. We moved to the UK, where I ran a catering business for sixteen years. I separated from my husband, and in 2007 I ended up being filmed for tv running the'Great Wall of China' and 'London' marathons for charity.
In 2009 I was struck down with a painful condition called Fibromyalgia, and I now have mobility problems. I was always a very active person, so I had to find some way to channel my energy, and writing was it.
I have already published a self help book for Fibro sufferers called 'Running Away from ME', but this is my first fictional novel. It's a story for all the family and I am really enjoying writing the next installment, my imagination now free to run riot.
I hope people enjoy my work as much as I enjoy writing.
