Book Description:
 
Teddie likes her country music
and her old pick-up truck and she’s not sure how she let her best friend talk
her into spending a semester abroad in Darjeeling India. Once she arrives, her
innocence quickly collides with an underworld in which young women are bartered
and sold. As she fights to understand a depravity that she never dreamed
existed, Teddie finds that her own mind develops a unique ability for locating
her friends and that an ancient group is willing to train her to use her innate
skills for out of body experiences to save others.
It will require trust in ideas
she barely believes, and more courage than has ever been expected of her. When
it becomes clear that the alternative may be her friends’ deaths and the
unchecked growth of an evil crime lord’s empire, Teddie accepts the challenge
and shows those guilty of unspeakable crimes just how powerful a young woman
can be.

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.
