Tara Spencer's mysterious pregnancy causes her family and fiancé to turn against her and sidetracks her plans for medical school. Only a stranger, Cyril Woods, believes her claim that she's still a virgin. The religious order that Cyril belongs to thinks Tara's child may be a new messiah. But when prenatal testing raises troubling questions, the order becomes Tara's enemy, convinced she will trigger the first stage of the Apocalypse. Tara fights for her life, seeking a safe place to give birth, and the answer to whether she and her child are meant to save the world or destroy it.               Q & A with the Author:

Q:    Is this a Christian series?
A:    It's not. It deals with a young woman who experiences a supernatural pregnancy (or does she?), but The Awakening is not a religious series.
Q:   How would you describe The Awakening in 10 words or less?
A:    My quick movie pitch: "Rosemary's Baby meets The Da Vinci Code." 
Q:    How many books are in the whole Awakening series?
A:    This is a four-book series. The Unbelievers, Book 2, is now available, and Book 3, The Illumination, is well underway. I hope to have it released by early 2016.
