In Search Of Superpowers
We can know the future.
Stop speeding bullets and
Change the world.
I believe it because I see it everyday in the real world. The decisions we make to care or not to care, to act or remain passive, to build or destroy not only change the world– they create the world we live in.
If you still don’t believe me, think about the impact your parents’ words had on you as a child. With a few careful phrases, they could turn a horrible experience into a wonderful learning opportunity. They could make a terrible boo-boo into a badge of honor. And they could take the cruelest words and turn them into the reason why you were the better person. Your parents (and your teachers) created your reality with mere words.
Even people not important to you can change your reality and alter your future with just their thoughts. Ever walk into your job feeling great – maybe even looking forward to facing the challenges of your day? Then, before you can even hang your coat up, someone hits you with his or her negativity and it changes your reality– it changes you. Suddenly you’re tired, pessimistic. All you want to do is go home. That person’s ability to change your outlook will affect how you interact with everyone in your path all day long. You could decide to purposefully be more encouraging, helpful, and positive in retaliation against the negativity that was cast your way because you also have the power to deflect and defend your own mental space or, you could decide to pass that negativity right along and ruin everyone else’s day so that the cycle continues.
You can do this because you are just that powerful– powerful enough to make or ruin someone’s day, self-image or life, just with your words. You might be thinking that “ruin someone’s life” is an extreme notion, but is it? A well-placed lie can make the truth disappear, so that justice is eclipsed right along with it. If you can do all that with your thoughts and words, just imagine what you can do with your actions… whoa.
The crazy thing is that so many of us don’t even realize how powerful we are. We walk around like we’re carrying water pistols when we’re really carrying canons, with the ability to fill or blow a hole through someone’s universe. And because we don’t know, we often fire off haphazardly– completely unaware of the reality we are creating.
Order of the Seers is about a group of people who have an extraordinary ability – they can see the future and are enslaved for it. Though they are powerful, the Seers are almost completely disconnected from their gifts because they are defined and controlled by an organization that exploits the Seers for their own gain. It is only after the first Seers escape that they begin to truly discover the full extent and purpose of their power and when they do, they change the world, not because of the extent of their powers as much as the decision to use whatever power they have for good.
Because, as super humans, we always have a choice as to when or how we use our abilities. The future is nothing more than what we are determined to create.
Dictators fire bullets.
Peacekeepers stop bullets from ever being fired.
The best teachers can help a student find their wings and defying the gravity of low expectations.
Bullies can stop a child before they ever get off the ground.
The voter can stand against oppression.
The spectator merely watches, allowing evil to reign for one more day.
As with the characters in my book, the power is within us. The only question is will you recognize your power for the awesome force that it is, and if you do, what will you do with it?

What would you do if you held infinite power in the palm of your hand?
The Order of the Seers Trilogy poses this question within a story that fuses action, mystery, and romance within a science fiction adventure that keeps you at the edge of your seat.
Captured and enslaved for their extraordinary gift, a group of individuals, known as Seers, are forced to serve a ruthless world organization that uses the power of the Seers to exploit the ultimate advantage: knowing the future. While a brother and his Seer sister fight to evade the group that hunts them, an unlikely captured Seer plots his escape from within the organization and sets off a chain of events that will change the world.
The journey begins with Order of the Seers (Book I) and continues with The Red Order (Book II). The final chapter in the Order of the Seers Trilogy, titled The Last Seer (Book III), will be released on September 30, 2014.
