C. David Rollins

C. David Rollins is a certified science geek. Growing up on a U.S. Military base overseas with no English language television, and before the invention of video games, David spent many hours devouring every science fiction and non-fiction book he could get his hands on at the base library.
After spending his youth immersed in the tales of Tom Swift, and John Carter of Mars, David went on to study engineering in college. He then served three years aboard a U.S. Navy nuclear submarine, experiencing science and technology up close, and striving to maintain the ship's dive to surface ratio equal to one.
Today he writes tales of children living in the future or travelling into space. He tries to blend science fact with fiction in hopes of stirring an interest in science in young minds as his was stirred in his youth. He lives with his wife and children in North Carolina, USA.

"James, you pimped the spaceship."

Matthew Roper, and his friends, Ellen Thompson and James Lovely, discover an advanced alien spacecraft disguised as a beat up old van abandoned years ago in the woods near their homes. Soon they find themselves thrust into danger, intrigue, and war many light-years from Earth.

The Galactic Concordance is a ruthless organization of alien empires that grinds other civilizations into dust. Lost, the band of eighth graders fly to a giant space station looking for help, but are mistaken as diplomats by the Concordance.

The aliens try to strike a deal, but the children soon learn the fate of other worlds that have accepted the “help” that the Concordance offers. If the aliens learn the truth about who they are and where they are from, Earth will be annihilated.

The spacecraft’s previous master has left a fearsome device on the space station and Ellen holds the key to unlocking its power.   Matt and his friends must choose between saving themselves or saving Earth.
