The heavens are calling...wanted, one hero. Many disastrous situations are escalating within the galaxy that will jeopardize the survival of worthy races of intelligent beings, beginning with planet Earth. A suitable candidate is crucial in order to re-shape the future. Generations before her birth, the choice is made and a complicated interweaving of people and circumstances is put into motion. Now we must wait for the passage of time to blend all of the inherent behavior that will produce our hero. But, as time marches on, dangerous conditions continue to build. Such as, a massive comet, tumbling through space since before civilization on Earth began. Standing in the comet’s way is a beautiful planet, teeming with life and poised for great things.
Years before our champion is born, the first of her direct support team becomes aware of threats to ours and other commendable races within the galaxy. As the years pass, she continues to have visions and is steadily drawn closer and closer to the starting point of what will become a legendary epic of human accomplishment. The adviser is infused with an overwhelming sense of duty, although she cannot yet grasp what the responsibility involves. The plan evolves and our hero is born. Years of growth will be needed before her services are required, and the comet is still unknown to the human race.
Thirteen years later, Dr. Roy Thompson, an astronomer in British Columbia, is the first of his race to discover the comet. Weeks of study will be needed to plot its course. In the meantime, his home is in total disarray; he and his family need a new housekeeper. Applying for the job is Madame Caidoz…a professional psychic who claims to have been drawn to the area and compelled to apply for this job. Mr. Thompson is desperate. He and his two children, Martin and Jenny, can’t keep up with the workload themselves. Thirteen-year-old, Jenny, is instantly attracted to the strange new housekeeper and they quickly become friends. Her full name is Rellet Caidoz, but Jenny soon comes to know her as just, Relli.
Relli feels relieved to finally be in the situation that has been nagging her for most of her life. Relli reveals that she believes Jenny is destined for great things. “But not greatness in the way we understand it, far beyond that, beyond our little place in the cosmos,” Relli told Jenny. “The enormity of your endeavors will not be on a local scale, or even a global level, but will span the galaxy. I see the name Jenny of Earth, emblazoned across the cosmos, and held in the highest esteem.”
“Don’t ask me how or why Jenny, but you have been chosen to achieve great deeds, heroic acts of immense significance. I was sent here to help guide you on this path.”
Despite Jenny’s reluctance to accept Relli’s visions, circumstances keep leading Jenny in that direction, particularly when her father divulges the disastrous path of the comet. Earth is not prepared for the threat, and Mr. Thompson knows it. Relli sees a faint hope to be saved from the comet. The faint hope comes along the same path as the fast approaching comet, and whatever this faint hope is; Jenny needs to partner with it. It is Earth’s only chance, and Jenny accepts the responsibility.
Come and join Jenny on her first of many adventures as she finds herself, “Chasing the Killer Comet.”
About the Author
Born in Toronto in 1957, I was full of energy and spent much of my time enjoying life as an active kid. My first job when I was 19 required a commute of 3-4 hours on the buses and subways of Toronto. It was pretty boring, so I passed the time reading. My favorite books were filled with adventure. I enjoyed authors like: James A. Michener, James Clavell, Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert and J.R.R. Tolkien. Their books seemed to come to life in my head and I loved the way the stories were crafted. I moved to Vancouver in 1980 and had kids of my own. Sharing my love of reading with my children, we enjoyed The Little House series and of course the Harry Potter series. Soon my aspirations turned to writing. I never imagined the hard work and dedication it takes to write a novel. I have managed to write three and I am very proud them. The Jenny In Space series is very different from the Vampire book. I like to think all are worth investing some of your valuable time in. My hope is to entertain, first and foremost. I hope you enjoy them. Mike Coles
