Earth is attacked by massive alien Wasps and Bees who travel across 8 light years with the vicious GENERAL VARD and his Black Watch in a ship called SpaceHive. The Wasps are on a mission to kill humanity and inhabit Earth. Earth’s future is in the hands of a 12-year-old boy named Jason Anderson, who is kidnapped by a friendly alien Bee from the SpaceHive while the vicious General Vard and new Queen decide his fate.
Meanwhile, the nations of the world are losing the battle with the giant Wasps and Bees. The Earth military takes charge and attempts to bomb the SpaceHive with nuclear weapons. The area is devastated as a result of the nuclear explosion. The SpaceHive lifts up and settles in India, along with its human passenger, where Jason connects with an Indian freedom fight, Aadab Ali. Jason discovers that music fascinates and calms the aliens.
Things go wrong as Allied forces attack the SpaceHive, razing the countryside. The General escapes and again takes charge. The Bees all flee back to the Ship. There is a battle and the Wasps are defeated.
The Earth is repopulated by the worker Bees and remaining humans living amicably together. Jason and his family are heroes.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Young Adult tends to be shorter than other genres, simpler sentences and words that are appropriate for middle grade or young adult. This audience likes action and adventure, humor and age appropriate jokes. I also write different genres and each has its own challenges and rewards. I’ve written an anthology of poetry and a nonfiction book on my journey with schizophrenia. Presently I’m working on an adult mystery.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Listen to advice, edit, rewrite, edit, never give up, and don’t think you’re the next Stephen King until you are, but do be patient and persistent, and love what you do. If you don’t love what you do you’ll never become an author. Join writers’ groups and critique groups, subscribe to newsletters, buy books on writing if you can, take a course, attend conferences if you can afford them. If you think you’re too good to listen to seasoned advice you’ll never become better.
I’m a published author and owner of a home based medical transcription company. I have three beautiful adult children and three grandsons, no cats, a large umbrella plant and a terrarium with a spotted plant and a fern which I have managed not to kill yet. I enjoy the gym and walking, music, cooking, entertaining, and of course, writing in all genres.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was stung by wasps one summer in a friend’s garden. I started thinking what would happen if giant alien wasps and bees attacked Earth. Thus the idea for the book was born.
