A War of Meteors
When an interstellar test flight fails, Jodi finds herself returned to an Earth she doesn’t know, a hundred years in the past. The AICs never landed here, but six Queen rocks of the Swarm are on the outer edge of the system, and heading Earthward. Jodi’s fought the Swarm before and won, but then she had several million other AIC Domers helping her. This time around she’s alone. One woman against the Swarm.
The world below is totally unprepared for what’s coming. With only 600 days till planetfall, Jodi must take the fight out to the Swarm in deep space. Only one problem. This version of the Swarm has weapons and capabilities she’s never encountered before. Capabilities she’s struggling to counter. Struggling and failing, and she soon finds she’s losing the fight.

A Plague of Meteors
A rain of small meteors inundates the earth. A year later, strange glistening white domes appear, scattered randomly across the continents. Who built them and why? A question with no answers, but during that year, two hundred thousand young women have vanished into thin air. Alien invasion? But the domes do nothing. Mass abduction? Perhaps, but many of the women seemed to have actively planned their own disappearance. There are no answers, that is, until a shimmering white wall appears above the domes. Not even nuclear weapons can harm the domes and now answers are more critical than ever before.

The Jeanne-Marie DeNord Archeological Fiction Series
The Magdalene Legacy
After barely surviving a replay of the Exodus plagues, Jeanne wanted nothing more to do with ancient scrolls or Magdalena legends. Too bad, because the Magdalene still has business with Jeanne.
She'd planned on taking a nice relaxing vacation. Instead Jeanne finds herself thrust into a complicated and confusing game of cat and mouse with church fanatics, Second Coming madman and a mysterious Sisterhood. Old friends may be new enemies while some old enemies may just be new friends.
From ritually sacrificed micro-biologists to long lost holy treasures and bloodied swords, Jeanne must find answers. But she may not survive to find those answers, because someone has her in their sights and they're about to pull the trigger.
This is the third Jeanne-Marie deNord suspense / mystery novel. Each book is written as a stand-alone book and can be enjoyed independent of earlier books. However, reading the earlier books provides a more fulfilling experience as background events appear in more detail.

The Exodus Scrolls
Jeanne thought she was traveling to Egypt to re-translate the hieroglyphs in the tomb of Seti I, circa 1300 BC, but climate change rains out those plans. Instead she finds herself in the middle of an earthquake disaster zone, re-enacting a modern-day version of the Exodus plagues. But this time the tenth plague won't take just the firstborn child. This time around it threatens to become a world wide pandemic of devastating proportions. The only possible salvation seems to lie in the scrolls found in a newly discovered tomb, a tomb with a deadly curse on it. Now Jeanne is in a race to find the answer before the plague kills her and half the world.
This is the second Jeanne-Marie DeNord suspense / mystery novel. Each book is written as a stand-alone book and can be enjoyed independent of earlier books. However, reading the earlier books provides a more fulfilling experience as background events appear in more detail.

The Magdalene Scrolls
In 2009, a cache of 1st century manuscripts was discovered in Southern France. Jeanne-Marie de Nord, the young Canadian translator on the archaeological team, tasked with translating the hundreds of Gnostic and Christian documents, realizes that some of the scrolls are a woman’s personal journal. The journal records a story that is hauntingly similar yet disturbingly different from what we think we know of the time. It’s a tale of learning, love, conspiracy and betrayal and raises many questions.
Why were the scrolls buried near Marseille? Who was this woman of the journal? What part did she play in the conspiracy to free Israel from Roman oppression? Why has her tale been suppressed for the last 2,000 years and who has been suppressing it? As Jeanne translates the scrolls looking for answers, all she finds are more questions.
She had better find answers soon, or she may lose the chance forever. Others are closing in on the project, intent on burying the scrolls for another 2,000 years and possibly Jeanne along with them.
