Former Times-Advocate, NCT columnist debuts first of several science fiction novels

Former Times Advocate/North County Times columnist, Nan Nicoll (now Nan Klee), a new science fic­tion author, has announced the publi­cation of her first book, DreaganStar through iCrew Digital Publishing.

This first book of The Dreagan­Star Trilogy introduces readers to the fascinating universe of the first experimental faster-than-light (FTL) spaceship, The DreaganStar. Set on the moon in the five lunar colonies, DreaganStar tells of the espionage, intrigue, romance, and mad science surrounding the starship during its experimental stage.

Book Synopsis: Doctor Samantha Alexander is the Senior Psychologist of the five Dreagan Corporation lu­nar colonies. She is given the task of proving Jonathan Dreagan, the founder and Chairman of the Board, to be insane. This seemingly easy task is complicated by the fact that Dreagan, the architect of all of the technology around her, is a brilliant scientist, statesman, celebrity, and recluse. Samantha’s superior has re­stricted her methods of inquiry, com­plicating her task, knowing that she may fall in love with Dreagan.
