Book: Pure Red Sand An Expensive Retreat
Author: M. Negrijn
It isn’t an easy life at the Martian hospital but Nadine has created a good one for herself. Sven, the mine owner’s son, has joined the family business, if reluctantly and is on his first inspection trip when Earth’s president is killed. Both planets are in turmoil. Political maneuvers are nearly invisible but they have planet wide results. Nadine and Sven are among the thousands facing imminent starvation. Then everything changes. Nadine makes a grisly discovery that will haunt her and shape everyone’s lives for years to come. An Expensive Retreat is the first book in a trilogy.
M has been writing for over twenty-five years. She’s been an archaeologist, an interpreter and a government minion. She has lived a somewhat nomadic life that has led to many stories and a quirky way of looking at the world.
When it comes to writing, she’s not so worried about the whole genre thing. She’s just telling the stories. After all, that’s the only reason to write.
