Writer Jana Williams believes in the power of fiction to change lives.
Jana’s own life was changed as a child when she discovered the public library had row after row of novels where women lived lives filled with adventure and daring. These fictional women pointed the way to a life where a woman could decide for herself what truly mattered in life.
Women like Madam Curie, Amelia Earhart and Nandini Harinath had always done this daring thing - imagining themselves for themselves throughout the ages, but the novels seemed inspirational on a completely different level. Jana hopes to inspire a whole new generation of women and girls to dare to follow their curiosity about life - to dare to step outside the dreams of others and find their own dreams.
Freefall is the first novel in the three-part Amalie Noether series where Elle Silver and her friends leap into the unknown of deep-space pursuing their dreams of colonizing a new planet.
A new novel by Canadian - Jana Williams
Paris in 2418 is knee-deep in sand, just like the rest of planet Earth, when Elle and 150 other young colonists blast into Space to colonize a new planet. Just beyond Mars lies a wormhole where the transport ship will slip into folded space, and travel to a solar system light years from Earth. Halfway through their journey, Elle begins to suspect the sleep drug they take to allow deep-space travel may actually be poisoning them.
As each cycle passes more and more colonists awaken with troubling side effects, like anxiety, depression and unprovoked flashes of anger. On a ship as small as the Vera Rubin this anger could spell disaster if a solution to their problem is not found. Time is running out for the packed transport ship, as tempers flare and arguments erupt. Elle and her friends are in a race against time to find answers to their questions to save their mission and possibly their lives.
They thought they had been trained for every eventuality - but poison and saboteurs were never on their list.
A catchy PRE-Review
I loved Freefall. Wonderful characters, with a strong female lead - and a fascinating new world to explore in this book The science is completely credible and the storyline had me really wondering what would happen next. I can’t wait for the next instalment in the series!
