Mounds View resident debuts second book

Phyllis Moore, a resident of Mounds View, has written a new science fiction book titled “Storm’s Coming.” It is the sequel to her debut novel “Pegasus Colony.”

In the year 2132, the World Space Coalition sent three ships to establish Earth’s first galactic colony in the Pegasus Constellation. They were never heard from again.

Three hundred years later, a radio technician discovers that the colony survived. The coalition sent a spaceship to reconnect with the people of Akiane. The descendants of the colonists, under the assumption that the coalition abandoned the original colonists, want nothing to do with anything or anyone from Earth.

In “Pegasus Colony,” Lt. Jessica M. Hewitt is ordered to the colony as a negotiator, something for which she is ill equipped.

In the second, just-released “Storm’s Coming,” Lt. Hewitt has been ordered to join an expedition to establish relationships and appease the colony’s inhabitants. The planet is warming, which will produce whiteouts and blizzards, and a gravitational storm is looming that will shake the entire planet to its core.

On a personal level, Hewitt must confront her old life before she’s able to form an alliance with her companions.

Moore is writing full-time, including the trilogy’s third book, “Jessica’s Mission.” Her books are available on Amazon and Amazon Prime.
