Welcome to episode 9 of the Indies’ Reading Block Podcast!

Jean has been writing science fiction action adventure books for about twenty years. She first fell in love with scifi as a teenager and has never fallen out of it. Currently, she is an indie author with 11 books on Amazon and other sites. 8 of those stories are science fiction. 3 are a children’s fantasy trilogy. 6 are composed of a series: the Star Soujourner. Jean is currently working on a seventh for the series.

TANGLEROOT is the sixth book in the Star Sojurner series and pits astrobiologist, telepath, adventurer, and all-around adorable nice guy Jules Rammis against some Mafia bad guys and a race of aliens who don’t like to share. But not to worry. Ever-faithful Vegan Huff and Jules’s team is by his side, with crusty team leader Joe, Harlem-touch Chancey, and mild-mannered Southern medic Bat, all partaking of the adventure, and Jules’s love interest, the exotic Sophia Rella, who just refuses to stay at home and let the guys have all the fun.

Come along for the action-packed wild ride as Jules tackles “the family,” and Blackroot, an insidious alient plant/animal that spreads like wildfire, munches people for snacks, but has some pretty spectacular properties that can endow humans with a very long lifespan.

The story takes Jules from Earth to the distant planet Equus, and back again, as he pursues the spreading root system, and tries to stay a jump ahead of the Mafia bad guys who are pursing him.
