The Mars Imperative (Book One of The Imperative Chronicles) is now available on Amazon

With 38 billion people choking Planet Earth, civilization is near a breaking point. Mankind's only hope for long-term survival is to expand to the stars; but until then, Earth must mine the solar system for iron, copper, and the many other raw materials needed in daily life.

Enter James McKie, a 23-year-old with a degree in Areology (Martian geology), on his way to his first job in space. Starry-eyed, he looks forward to making his mark on the Red Planet. But first he has to survive the trip there. A mysterious fire aboard his ship leads to a crisis on the giant space elevator high above Mars. When he arrives, he still has to survive the perils of Mars itself: rocks slides and planet-wide dust storms that leave unwary travelers blind in red-out conditions, unable to find their way home before their oxygen runs out. 

And then there's the terrorist. 

In the end, there's an incredible discovery waiting to be made: the key to terraforming the planet for human habitation--if it doesn't kill everyone first.

The Mars Imperative is available for Kindle at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LTATR22
