Daughter of the Antediluvian World: An Atlantis Origin Story

The key to the survival of an entire race lies in her genes, and she doesn’t know it.

Ryan Jones is a gifted archeologist plagued by questions about her past and lucid dreams about Atlantis, the ancient civilization lost to history. When a mysterious gift arrives from her long-dead parents, Ryan abandons the stable life she has fought to create to cross the globe in search of answers. Fierce secrecy is literally in her DNA, but she must place her trust in strangers and her unique abilities to find her way home.

Her quest leads her deep into the heart of darkness, where the centuries-long search for the lost city finally ends. There, she finds that the secrets hidden in her genetic code could save an entire race from the brink of extinction – but there is a cost.

Ryan must choose between her past and her future, her family and the man she loves, and the next great leap in evolution or the destruction of the human race.

Meet A. L. Hooke

A. L. Hooke spent years as a journalist and copywriter before lacing up her hiking boots and venturing into the dense jungle of fiction writing. She developed her first character in the third grade and spent much of her young (and not so young) life dreaming of ancient civilizations and lost treasures. An avid outdoor enthusiast with an unquenchable wanderlust, many of Hooke’s own travels and bucket list locations are the inspiration for her stories.

Her debut science fiction action-adventure novel, Daughter of the Antediluvian World: An Atlantis Origin Story, seeks the source of one of her favorite myths: The Lost City of Atlantis. After dipping her toes into the wilds of fiction, Hooke is now working on her first series as well as her own copy and content consulting business alongside her very tolerant husband in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Now, money can’t save Rose from a terrible fate. It’s up to Henry to come to her rescue.

Meet Jimmy Clifton

JIMMY CLIFTON was reported lost at sea in the early morning hours of June 7, 2020. His crewmates on the fishing boat Miss Rosie Mae remember his prodigious capacity for rum and a gift for spinning yarns that helped captain and crew endure those tedious stretches on the open water.
He left a loaded .45, an old photo from better times, and several manuscripts as the only clues to a life well lived.

​But the tale doesn’t end there.
The task of curating the Jimmy Clifton series and bringing this gifted writer’s intriguing novels to light has been left to MICHAEL HAYES, Clifton’s only known living kin. As a longtime ad man, Hayes shares Clifton’s talents for weaving tall tales and stretching the truth.
This first in the Clifton series is called POWERBALLS. A cautionary tale if there ever was one about the perils of sudden wealth, and what the almighty dollar can do to a man’s, or woman’s, soul. In the immortal words of Jimmy Clifton, Be careful what you wish for.
We think you’ll like it.
