Author Max Daneabout this book: Athena Rising is my third book in the science fiction genre. I had the idea for it knocking around in my head for years before writing it. I always thought it would be interesting, if only I could figure out how to end it. Finally, I decided to write the book and just go as far as I could before I was forced to confront the climax. Fortunately, the ending seemed to coalesce nicely on its own, very nearly writing itself along the way. Ultimately, it came out better than I could have hoped.

I've often heard it said that you should write about what you know. I'm a science teacher and love writing about science fiction. I want my books to have a realistic feel when it comes to the science and the characters I employ. If the reader doesn't believe the story is possible, then I've gone astray somewhere and need to re-examine my steps. I also enjoy suspense and creepy things in the dark. I want my stories to feel horrific at times- I hope this feeling comes through to my readers.

I have to say that this book gave me the confidence to keep writing. It feels solid and complete. It hits all the bases I was after. My reviews have been wonderfully favorable and I sincerely thank those of you who took the time to leave your comments. For those I haven't heard from, I hope you enjoyed it as much I did writing it! I'm hoping to have a sequel to Athena in draft-form soon after the summer of 2014.

Warmest regards from Captain Finn Holt and the rest of the crew!!
