Our publisher is going out of business and this wonderful novel series will go out of print Sept. 1st 2005. I have been told by a book store manager that Ingrams is all ready canceling orders for these novels without sending the novels. If they do this to you try Baker and Taylor. If that doesn't work you can always get your novels from this website.

A 7 year old girl who just happens to have my Yahoo Messenger address caught me on line and went to voice mode. She wanted to read segments of these novels to the man who wrote them. I listened until she finished with tears in my eyes. She was just 7 years old and reading so very well. If my novels inspire someone this young to read them perhaps there is hope for this author after all.

Grandma Martha is about to loose her farm to a greedy land developer. Her pony Sparky is sick at the neighbor's farm along with several horses who are deathly ill.

Even though we call this our Christmas story it's not all about Christmas, it just happens during Christmas. There is a special Christmas segment in it so you won't be disappointed.
Megan's last day of school before her Christmas vacation wasn't exactly the most pleasant day she's had in a while. It appears someone told someone else at school a lie that Megan had said something derogatory about another girl who then came looking to get even with Megan. As if that wasn't bad enough her history teacher caught her daydreaming and thinking to humiliate her asked her to get up in front of the class and explain details concerning facts about the pyramids of Giza. She got up and literally took over the entire classroom. You would have thought the teacher would have been pleased with her but there were three major problems. It seems he didn't like the fact that she was a better teacher on the subject of the pyramids than he was. He didn't like the fact the entire class was paying close attention to her as she spoke. The other problem was that about 95% of her information didn't come from her school text book! Megan is able to travel through time and space and, well, her perspective of true history is quite a bit different than what she finds in her text books.
Megan returns home to find Payah watching some very depressing news about a war against terrorists. That wasn't exactly what she needed to cheer her up at that moment. She wonders has life gotten so bad there's no hope for humanity? If someone could do something to change things for the better then what would they do, what could they do?
"Dear God, please bless America, I know she's made plenty of mistakes but when other nations of the world were in trouble and being over-run by terrorists and evil dictators America was there to turn the tide of battle in favor of those who love freedom. If not for her where would the world be today? And God please bless the leaders of the nations and give them wisdom, compassion and insight so they will do the correct things by their people and toward other nations as well. And God bless the people of the world that they may learn to love each other despite their differences and learn to respect each other as precious living beings sharing this world with them. And God if it's not too much trouble if you have any time left maybe you could show me something that I could do to make the world a better place to live. Thank you, God. I'll be expecting your answer soon."
No sooner had Megan said this prayer than God answered her and set her on a brand new chain of adventures and challenges. Find out what happens in this wonderful family adventure.

The Fourth Adventure of Megan Martin
This novel is in print as of today, 4-29-2003.
This book is approximately 96,000 words in length.
This novel starts at the exact moment that novel number 3 ends, on the night of Christmas Eve. It also has a Christmas segment in it. Megan, May and Brianna go to another solar system. They are gone for 3 days. They left on the night of Christmas eve yet they returned on Christmas morning! Find out why Megan thinks there must be A Space In Time.
This edition of the series is based on a new "toy" that Megan discovers in a secret place mentioned in the last chapters of the third book. See that big blue thing hovering over the girl's heads. That's a fourth dimensional intergalactic class spaceship. Megan named him "Orion." How large is he? On the outside he's as large as a foot ball field, but on the inside he's bigger than that.
Orion allows Megan, May, and Brianna to go on a brand new kind of adventure. They go on a trip across the galaxy and meet new friends along the way. They discover more secrets about the crown device and they go on brand new and very dangerous adventures.
It's the night of Christmas Eve. May and Brianna talk Megan into showing them a secret place she found using the crown. She says it's inside the crown. They find Orion floating in fourth dimensional space. Orion allows them to take an adventure to a distant place, a place that Megan could not get to using the crown alone. Orion is no ordinary spaceship though, he's a fourth dimensional craft that has strange and amazing abilities like the crown does only some of these abilities are quite different than the Crown device. Not only that Megan and her friends discover that strange things happen to time inside this alien craft. Their watches stop sometimes when they are inside of it and time does strange things. They conduct this entire 3 day adventure to return home only a few hours later than when they left. Megan has determined that inside the Orion spaceship there must be ...
"A SPACE IN TIME."
The entire first half of this story they are on an alien world. They make a new friend there named Xeba (That's pronounced as "Zeba"). Xeba is about four and a half feet tall with beautiful ice blue eyes and long light blond hair. It's so light yellow that it is almost white. Xeba's people live like primitives among the dense forest and tall trees. Megan is determined to discover where these little people came from and why they are now living on a planet inhabited by prehistoric creatures. That's right, the beautiful little people who live there live in a world of dinosaurs and Megan says, "It just doesn't make good sense." So she sets out to find out what the big deal is. Brianna discovers some unusual things on this planet like huge pictures that can only be seen from the air. She also discovers a huge pyramid that holds the secrets to the mystery Megan wishes to solve. She tries but can not view through the many feet of solid stone. The only way to find the answers then is to go in and explore the huge but very dangerous pyramid. Find out what's hidden inside the pyramid!
That's not all because when they get home on Christmas morning the Books A Zillion store explodes with the manager inside and the store burns to the ground! The store is right beside ol "Crazy" Bob's pawnshop that Simon Banister has been trying to buy from Bob for pennies on the dollar. Has Simon found a new way to get land next to Bob? Perhaps he also intended the fire to burn Bob's place down as well. To make things even worse, Megan learns that Simon Banister and Don Lowery are hot on their trail. They know someone has been foiling their plans to drive people from their land and Don Lowery has determined that it must be one of grandma Martha's relatives behind it. Megan leaves in the early morning hours because of a bad dream and to deliver some evidence to her new FBI friend "Agent Roger" (she met in A Christmas Story) but when she returns home someone has broken into her house and abducted her entire family.
Will this be the end of Megan Martin? Or will this be the end of Simon Banister? Don't miss the show-down between Megan and Simon Banister in this exciting adventure!
The 5th Adventure of Megan Martin
NOW IN PRINT! It is over 133,000 words.
It's 510 pages long and jam packed with excitement!
In time for Halloween! This story has everything a good ghost story needs.
The largest one of the series so far at 510 pages of actual story!
Night visions starts out completely different than all the previous stories. It grabs the reader's attention from the very start and pulls them into a dark scary situation. It has a few new surprises and an old friend returns from a previous story to help Megan. I don't know exactly how to give a preview of this story without giving away all the secrets.
Megan gets mugged and loses her memory! She's rescued by someone that she had seen in a previous story but this person doesn't really know who she is and neither does Megan!
To add to the danger and suspense another creature tracks her down and without her crown, memory, or any form of defense she must face this supernatural predator.
Instead of having one or two really deep story length problems for Megan to deal with this story presents a series of different problems for Megan and her friends to solve. Being mugged and loosing her memory is pretty serious but the things that happen because of it set the stage for a new set of adventures.

Now the largest of the series. I didn't intend for it to be so big! But it's jam packed with action and adventure!
NOW IN PRINT!
There are two excerpts for this novel on the Dark Matter page. Click on the cover to the left or the title above to go there.
The 6th in the series. This story is written and being edited now. It's over 175,000 words in length. The largest of the series so far. I intend to write one more in the Megan Martin Series before starting a new series starring a character who is introduced in this edition of Megan Martin. I'm getting requests to write more of the Megan Martin series and not to close it out with novel 7. The more of our fans who write requesting more, the more likely I'll be to write perhaps 2 or 3 more of this series before closing it out. If you want more please e-mail me and let me know. Because of the size I'm not sure when to expect it in print. I hope by the Spring of 2004.
Exactly one year has passed since Megan and May found, assembled, and began using the crown. Their little group has grown to five now over the past year. Xeba is about to have her first child on grandma Martha's farm. She's afraid to go to the hospital because she is, after all, an "Illegal Alien!"
Megan and her friends return to work on the farm and help with the dude ranch. Mr. Butler hires a new hand named Ray Thompson who gets the surprise of his life in the barn loft while trying to feed the horses. Megan comes to his rescue but, before she can explain, he falls out of the barn loft window into the lot below.
The dude ranch is hosting a rather dysfunctional family for the week and Mark and Anthony are about to show their disregard for everyone including their father. Their step-sister, Rachel, thinks she's a witch and when she sees Brianna transport a hand held device back to Orion she mistakes Megan and her friends all to be high level practitioners of the craft.
An alien spaceship was shot down over an obscure area of Australia by a US commanded Star Wars satellite. What the recovery team finds inside this alien craft may literally be the end of the world. Who knows - it might even be the end of the entire solar system. Scientists working deep in an ultra secret underground base in a place known as Dreamland are trying to open these devices unaware of the dangers inside.
The alien craft is so large the recovery team can't move it and to complicate things anything that uses electricity fails after being exposed to the alien craft and the mysterious devices for any length of time. The men working to move the alien craft become ill but there's no good explanation for it.
A handful of humanoid aliens survived the crash but they don't speak English and now they are also being held deep inside an underground ultra high security hospital at Dreamland. Only the survivors of the crash hold the secret to the strange black devices. What Megan and her friends do will decide the fate of not just the world but the entire universe!
To make things even more interesting a famous movie star arrives at the dude ranch on very short notice. Megan doesn't know a famous alien monster movie star is arriving until she looks up and sees the helicopter circling the farm early one morning. She asks her grandma Martha who tells her "It's Julianna Skii" who's taking a week off from her current production to come spend a week with them on the dude ranch. That's not just a movie star, it's Brianna's most favorite movie star!
That's not all because there's a black mysterious UFO that follows Orion back to the farm. Who are they? What do they want?
I didn't intend for the novel to be much over 120,000 words in length but it's so jam-packed with things going on I felt to remove any of the action and story would hurt the overall enjoyment of reading the story. I know it's going to cost quite a bit more than the others but I feel that once you read the story you will feel it was well worth it. It sets the stage for the action and huge revelations that will follow in upcoming episodes of "The Adventures of Megan Martin."
