How does a tossed bowl of tapioca close a trans-dimensional portal? And how is it connected to a centuries-old druid artifact?
Penny Preston, a gifted 8th grader existing in more than three dimensions, plans to find out. Together with her mysterious cat, she struggles to protect our universe from invaders, save her relationship with her best friend, and uncover her connection to Celtic legend.
About the Author:
Unlike many authors, Armen can honestly say that he didn't voluntarily read a book until he finished The Hobbit in sixth grade. After that reading became a vice, as he ravenously devoured science fiction and fantasy stories. Taking a more practical approach to college, he earned a BS in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he was an Honorable-Mention All-American swimmer his senior year.
After serving as an officer in the USAF, working on top secret 'Area 51' projects, where he never saw a single alien (dead or alive), he left the service and earned an MBA from the University of North Carolina. He spent a decade riding the high-tech wave, moving more frequently than an informant in the Witness protection program.
His stories mix elements of science and history with a healthy dose of fantasy. When not writing he can be found swimming, reading a book, or enjoying the outdoors with his family. He lives outside of Rochester, NY with his wife and three children.
